Chapter 5

“You son of a bitch……!”

The three people who were sitting stood up to Kang Yoo-sik’s provocation, and the surroundings quickly became cluttered.

The moment Kang Yoo-sik thought he was going to fight here, they were about to face each other with straight postures.

“Stop–!”

A loud shout echoed throughout the student cafeteria.

It was a B-level Hunter’s mana shout. The intense mana was enough to crush the just-excited newbies. The bodies of the three thugs who were about to storm them stiffened.

“How dare you guys fight between students……!”

Lee Hyun-chang, who had been running with his eyes wide open, came through the students gathered around them, and when he found Kang Yoo-sik, his eyes shook hard.

“Fi, fight…… each other…….”

Lee Hyun-chang, who hesitated for a moment about what to do, soon shouted out with his eyes glaring again as he had settled his mind.

“Fight……fight……! Both of you, follow me right now!”

Returning to his role as a teacher, Lee Hyun-chang led Kang Yoo-sik and the bully, who was ruined by food, out of the school cafeteria.

Then he came to the side of the building and stood to look at the two guys standing side-by-side.

“Kim Bum-woo. Explain what happened right now.”

“Yes, yes!”

Lee Hyun-chang immediately stared at the messed up thug, Kim Bum-woo, and Kim explained the situation under the pressure of the B-level Hunter.

“So Kang Yoo-sik…… He provoked me into a quarrel, so I approached him in a fit of anger. And he turned the food tray upside down?”

“Yes. He started it all.”

At the sight of Kim Bum-woo lying without blinking an eye, Kang looked at Lee Hyun-chang quietly without saying anything.

‘Tactfully.’

Kang didn’t say anything, but at the sound of his voice in Lee’s ears, Lee Hyun-chang stared at Kim Bum-woo with his eyes burning with cold sweat.

“Hey. Kim Bum-woo.”

“Yes, yes?”

Kim Bum-woo’s face turned blue with Lee’s growling voice, and Lee Hyun-chang opened his eyes.

“Does this bastard dare to play with a teacher?”

“Oh, no. It’s not like that…….”

“Shut up! Follow me!”

“Ahhhhh!”

Lee Hyun-chang, who stopped Kim Bum-woo’s words, left with a pull on his ear. Kang Yoo-sik saw the scene and smiled quietly.

‘This is why support is really good.’

How comfortable it was to solve these little things neatly. Feeling satisfied, Kang moved back to the cafeteria and encountered Kim Jin-hyuk running with empty eyes.

“Huh? Did you finish your breakfast already?”

“No. I’ve got work to do for a moment. You must have overslept.”

“Hahaha. I’ve got some work to do.….”

Kim Jin-hyuk, who looked embarrassed, glanced around and looked at Kang.

“Well… …if you haven’t eaten yet, would you like to join me?”

Kim Jin-hyuk blushed a little and talked about why he was so embarrassed to eat together. The innocent and ugly look made Kang smile while slightly wiggling his eyes.

Kang Yoo-sik’s theory was that if he had already made a debt, he should pile it up until he can collect it. That was why Kim Jin-Hyuk also treated him the same way.

“Yes. Let’s eat together.”

“Well, really?”

“There’s nothing to lie about eating together. Let’s go in and eat fast. We’ll be late for the morning meeting.”

Turning his head around, Kang Yoo-sik got fed up inside and moved on first, followed by Kim Jin-hyuk who saw the backside with a sneaky smile.

“Come with me!”

“……This guy is the Silver Class?”

When Dean Han Moo-jin, a man with a dark beard, asked with a ridiculous look on his face after watching CCTV records of the school cafeteria, Lee Hyun-chang nodded with a trembling look.

“Yes, he is a silver class.”

“Huh…….”

In response to Lee’s answer, Han Moo-jin turned back the CCTV footage.

He completely trampled on the tripping leg first, and then the hand that they wielded was neatly avoided by taking a step back.

Han Moo-jin rubbed his rough chin with his beard at that neat move.

‘He cannot be Silver.’

Such a move was enough to make him join the Gold Class even though he was last on the scoreboard. Han Moo-jin, with a puzzled look on his face, asked Lee Hyun-chang again.

“Didn’t he hide a skill set?”

There were some lunatics who hid their power to attract attention, which was not so common but was later revealed.

In Han Moo-jin’s view, Kang Yoo-sik seemed just like that kind of thug.

“He injured his lung in the accident, and he was treated with a body-strengthening skill.”

“Well. That’s it. What’s his level?”

“I don’t know that yet. I don’t think he’s going to say it.….”

Basically, it was up to him to reveal his skills. If he announced the existence of powerful skills, the evaluation would increase, but on the contrary, it could have been a weak point to him.

Therefore, some people revealed all their skills, while others hid them.

“Hmm. This guy is something…….”

Han Moo-jin, who had been pondering for a while, suddenly looked at the gang that had a quarrel with Kang Yoo-sik.

“Those quarrelsome bastards. The Black Snake Guild Boss’ younger son, Ban Kyung-hoon, is a gang member, right?”

“That’s right. I called Kim Bum-woo and asked him earlier, and he had a quarrel once so he was grinding his teeth.”

“What a quarrel. I’m sure they fought while doing something stupid…….”

Han Moo-jin licked his tongue at Lee Hyun-chang’s answer.

If he was in Silver Class with his parents running guilds, he should be ashamed at him, but he was being a bully.

His older brother in the second Gold Class grade was not that good, but he was on the verge of rotting away.

‘That rice with those vegetables. Parents and children are not different.”

If it were up to him, Han would expel him, but he did not have such authority.

Instead, it was possible to make that jerk useful.

“Third class today is sparring, right?”

“Yes.”

“Then let Ban Kyung-hoon and Kang Yoo-sik spar together. Let’s dig up his skills.”

Lee Hyun-chang slightly hardened his face because of Han Moo-jin’s suggestion, and soon asked carefully, “……Is it okay for them to fight?”

Although Ban was in the Silver Class due to poor admission records, Ban had already grown to the level of Gold Class due to his parents’ support.

But Lee worried about letting Ban compete with Kang Yoo-sik. If others saw it, it could be seen as harsh treatment.

“You don’t have to worry because Kang will never get beaten up with his level.”

At that level, Ban would be beaten to near death at Ban Ki-hoon’s level. And if he got it right like that, he wouldn’t get revenge or anything.

Han Moo-jin watched the CCTV footage with confidence.

‘He is not the one I worried.….’

Lee Hyun-chang looked at Ban with pitiful eyes.

Ring-Ring-

With the bell announcing the start of the first period, an old man who looked twisted came in and glared at the students via the glasses on his nose. 

“Today, I will teach you about ignition magic and its application that is useful within the dungeon.”

Basically, Hunters were classified into two categories: a warrior who fought with their physical power and a wizard who dealt with magic.

However, in reality, the two were not completely divided, and most hunters learned as little as they could while they focused on one.

This was because the use of various forces increased the birth rate in the dungeon beyond the gate or the fight against monsters.

“Some of you might think that the magic of ignition is not important, but if you learn roughly, you’ll never get out of Silver Class, so you’d better work hard.”

Lee Chang-wan, an old man who looked at the students who were not interested, turned his body and moved his touch pen on the electronic board and began drawing formulas.

Kang Yoo-sik, one of the cadets he glared at earlier, smiled stealthily, and looked at his back.

‘I never thought I’d see this old man here.’

Former B-level Hunter. The image of Lee Chang-wan once called “Goblin Fire” reminded Kang of the future he knew.

Lee Chang-wan entered Sungjin Military Academy to find someone to pass on his vision magic to, but two years later, he quit teaching because he could not find the right person.

Then, despite his old age of 64, he began his career again as an active member. Surprisingly, he had improved his vision magic further and had grown to level A and become a famous wizard.

‘And he died of natural causes, perhaps because he couldn’t find anyone to teach his magic until the very end.’

Usually, when someone felt that it’s time to die, he might teach others or leave his magic book, but Lee Chang-wan did not leave his vision magic until the last minute despite the persuasion of others.

Kang Yoo-sik was also one of the people who tried to appease him with money at the time but was rejected, so the scene that unfolded before his eyes was pleasant.

‘Someone who is begged to teach later is being ignored here……. That’s funny.’

At the rare scene that no one could see, Kang Yoo-sik looked pleasant, and Lee Chang-wan, who wrote down all the formulas, turned around.

“Remember the formula I just drew in your head completely. And when you keep thinking of it and draw out your mana, drag it down to your fingertips.”

Boom!

Small embers of fire sprang from Lee Chang-wan’s fingertips, and students with no interest in him also paid attention. 

After seeing the eyes gathered, Lee Chang-wan removed the embers with a satisfied look, followed by an explanation.

“It’s simple magic compared to the spells we’ll learn afterward. If you listen to the solution and understand it properly, the sensible ones will be able to use it today.”

Kang Yoo-sik smiled inwardly at Lee Chang-wan’s casual talk.

‘You’re making a fuss.’

It was true that the magic of ignition was simple, but what Lee Chang-wan taught was a little different from what was known in the world.

Due to its excellent precision and low mana consumption, it was very difficult to control, so it was only possible for active hunters to practice enough for a few days.

However, Lee Chang-wan intentionally hid this and taught this fact because it was one of the means to select talented people to pass on vision magic to.

“Now, I’m going to explain the solution, so focus on it.”

Lee Chang-wan taught students how to solve the equation with his strangely enthusiastic eyes and then made them practice until the class was over.

Tick! Tick!

But all they heard was the sound of the wind blowing.

Lee Chang-wan, who saw the flying mana in the air, frowned like he bit off some shit, and Kang Yoo-sik also roughly bounced his fingers.

‘I can do it, but……it’s not the right time to show it here right now.’

If he was going to use it, he should show off a more colorful and intense look according to Lee’s personality.

Since he had already decided when to use it from the moment, he saw the old teacher, Kang, smile at Lee Chang-wan’s expression full of discontent.

“This is the end of today’s class. Practice the ignition magic until the next class.”

Lee Chang-wan left with a flabby expression, followed by a theoretical class about the gate and internal dungeons in the second period.

“The pattern of how dungeons are generated inside the gate…….”

Of course, the contents of the class were useful in their own way at Seongjin Military Academy, but the majority of students did not listen and looked nervous.

That was because the next third period was the Sparring class, which meant the most to them.

‘Everyone’s in their best spirits.’

Of the 98 cadets gathered in this Silver Class, who was the strongest, and how strong were they?

Everyone began to get excited about the upcoming moment, and Kang Yoo-sik felt a sticky look on one side.

It was Ban Kyung-hoon, son of the Black Snake Guild boss. The fool was looking at Kang with a prepared look.

‘Wow. It’s really hard to stay like that in a day.’

Was it because of what happened in the cafeteria today?

At Ban Kyungi-hoon’s constant glare, Kang Yoo-sik laughed at him with only one corner of his mouth raised, and his expression was even more distorted.

The atmosphere between the two was getting worse and worse.

Ring!

The bell rang to announce the end of the second period, and as soon as the teacher who finished teaching the class went out, Kang Yoo-sik and Ban Kyung-hoon stood up straight from their seats.

“……”

“……”

The two, who looked at each other once, immediately moved to the battleground where the third period would take place, and the whole class became rigid due to the mysterious atmosphere between the two.

Ban Kyung-hoon, who was secretly feared within the class on one side. And on the other side, there was Kang Yoo-sik who suddenly went crazy this morning.

An atmosphere was formed at once that neither side wanted them to be involved in.

“…… Yoo-sik. Are you going to be okay?”

Kim Jin-hyuk, who quietly came up to Kang, asked in a worried voice, and Kang Yoo-sik smiled at him.

“What?”

“Ban Kyung-hoon……he seems to have prepared something thoroughly. If you are matched against him…….”

Kang was not sure how much Ban could prepare in a day, but if he recovered that fast, he could do something.

“It’s all right.”

However, Kang replied calmly to Kim Jin-hyuk’s concerns.

“He is my meal anyway.”

Kang was actually going to eat him deliciously soon.

Kang Yoo-sik, who smiled, moved confidently, and Kim Jin-hyuk, who walked next to him, looked slightly worried.

“But don’t push yourself too much.”

“Don’t worry about me. Mind your spar. You were determined to work hard yesterday.…….”

“Oh, okay! Okay, so don’t bring it up then……!”

While talking with Kim Jin-hyuk, he arrived at the sparring place where the sparring class was to be held, and Kang Yoo-sik looked around.

The Sparring place, which Sungjin Military Academy boasted, was equipped with state-of-the-art magic engineering. Seeing the facility, which was said to perfectly prevent any fatal injuries, Kang looked at Ban Kyung-hoon who came in at one step slower.

‘You’re probably thinking the same thing.’

The Sparring place of the Sungjin Military Academy protects the wound but leaves the pain.

Because if he didn’t get used to the pain, he would have problems in real life.

That’s why retaliation usually hurt the heart in the sparring place, and Ban must have prepared for it.

‘What did he prepare?’

A psychic debuff? Or will he subdue me with repeated vital blows? Several candidates came to mind, and soon Kang Yoo-sik laughed.

It was because Kang thought any match would be enjoyable. 

Ring!
