A week has passed since Operation Deceive.
Ever since then, Silvia and I have fulfillingly spent our days selling the 『Flame Wolf Fur』, and earning experience on the side.
The experience we earned was mainly by killing slimes. If you go deep into the 『Slime Forest』 that is located on the road from the capital to the mine, you can find a rare slime that earns you a good amount of experience.
From it all, the best harvest was the 『Wand of Recovery Magic ・ Medium』 that dropped from a holy slime. It’s a super rare item with a drop rate of only 0.05%.
This 『Wand of Recovery Magic ・ Medium』 is a convenient wand because long as it is equipped, anyone is able to use the 【Healing Magic】 《Medium Recovery》. In particular, it demonstrates its true value by having a character specialized in the growth type of the healer system use it. That is because the effect 「＋＋（plus plus）」is added only when healer-type users handle it. ＋＋ is a double reinforcement, and with it, it can be expected to exert 2.5 times the usual effect. With a 《Medium Recovery》reinforced with ＋＋, you can roughly recover around 50% of the HP of an intermediate player. As you can see, the added effect is quite powerful.
Unfortunately, neither me nor Silvia are the healer type, so the ＋＋ reinforcement cannot be used, however, it’s great to be able to use 《Medium Recovery》 without any restriction. Thank you, Holy Slime. You gave us a wonderful gift. I wonder if it would go “Piki! ” and be happy to receive my thanks?
And thus, the day to go to the Royal Magic Academy arrived.
“Is it really okay? “
Bringing her face close to me, Silvia asked. She’s been like that since a while ago.
“It’s fine, since you killed half of them, I’ve already told you that’s your fair share.”
No matter what, after giving her half of the gold from selling the Flame Wolf Fur, she’s been spouting “This is too much for someone like me”.
We had 120 pieces of fur and they sold for 1 million a piece. 1 million x 120 is 120 million CL, of which half of it, 60 million CL, is Silvia’s share.
“I wonder if it's okay for me to get such a large sum of gold in addition to the Bow of the Blazing Wolf……?”
She’s quite hesitant and with a gloomy atmosphere.
Right now what should be important is to infiltrate the Magic Academy, but as is, it wouldn't be weird if we’re made light of by the teachers or students. I need to convince her somehow that this is normal.
“Listen here, Silvia. 60 million is something you can earn in a day. Small change is small change. Remember we’re aiming to be the world’s top. Stop complaining about some measly 60 million.”
“But even 10 million in a day……”
Oh no, at this rate.
“You’re setting the bar too low. You’re already part of the team that will become the world’s top. Don't forget it.”
“Yeah, team. I’ll form it soon.”
In Mobius, a group created by players was called 『Team』. A minimum of three people is required and a quest for the team formation needed to be completed. But it was so easy that virtually anyone could create a team without problems and play with other players.
I’m not sure if the same system exists in this world, but it would be safer to aim for the world’s top by creating a team. Because of the Team’s Master authority, it made it very efficient. It was very convenient to be able to freely see the stats and skill list of team members without needing their permission and to give instructions from remote locations using the Team-limited communication function. By all means, I want to create one when the number of companions increases.
“I am…… a member of Second-dono’s team……? “
Silvia muttered as her eyes incessantly blinked.
Seems like her confidence is gradually rising and the idea is finally beginning to settle in her mind.
“Umu, that’s right! I am the first team member of the man who’ll become the world’s top! I can't be some delicate flower! “
She got full of spirit suddenly. She also emphasized “First”. Are you trying to place ranks in the members?
Well, apparently she already forgot about the 60 million at least. This awkward girl is pretty cute.
Having such a conversation, Silvia and I arrived at the Royal Magic Academy.
Located about an hour away from the middle of the capital by horse, the school is a huge castle-like building, so big that you have to look up.
“Welcome, we’ve been expecting you.”
As we got down from the horses, two people received us, a young man apparently in his twenties and a woman who looked like she was in her late thirties.
“Thank you for taking the trouble of personally receiving us, teachers.”
I answered using the best speech that I could think of. As expected, some level of courtesy is required when you are a student and are talking to a teacher. As I bowed, I poked Silvia with my elbow, whom was just standing surprised next to me.
“You are Second, right…? Don't worry about it. “
The young man asked me. Right, I haven't introduced myself yet.
“Yeah. I am Second and next to me is Silvia. I thank you in advance for taking care of us these next two weeks.”
After I said so with a smile, the man and woman exchanged glances, and then the woman began to speak.
“I’m Paula Memento, the headmaster. Nice to meet you. And this here is.”
“Kevin. I’m the homeroom teacher of the first year’s class A, where we will be welcoming Second-kun. Nice to meet you.”
I shook hands with the two people. So, the headmaster is a woman, huh? Unexpected. And Kevin-san seems like he’s the elf Noir-san was talking about.
Similarly, the two people exchanged greeting with Silvia. By the way, I wonder what kind of treatment would Silvia get?
“I’m sorry for the sudden question but, will Silvia be also in class A? “
“Yes, she will. The accommodations during the study abroad period will not be a dormitory but an inn, therefore you won't be separated.”
Paula was the one who answered.
I see, Silvia is supposed to be my personal guard. Damn, was my question weird?
“Alright, shall we go?”
We entered the school building while being guided by Kevin-san.
They don't seem to be suspicious of me right now, but…… I need to keep my act together for the next two weeks.
“I’m thinking for today, I’ll have you attend classes in the morning and give you some guidance about the school building in the afternoon. How does that sound? “
“Will you be the guide, Kevin-sensei? “
“No, a student will. I asked in class A for someone, so it’s already been decided whom will. The afternoon is basically self-study and homework time, but if you’re an excellent student you’ll find yourself with some free time.”
“Is that so? You have my thanks.”
Alright. Let’s kill some time in class for now and squeeze information from the kid who will be my guide in the afternoon. Although I say that, all I care is finding the location of the Grimoires.
“Okay, we’ve arrived. This is the class A.”
While I was laughing in my mind, we've apparently arrived at the classroom.
Kevin-san opened the door without hesitation. The inside of the classroom was structured in the shape of a fan, similar to the university lecture rooms, and desks were lined up horizontally like steps. So, there are around 30 students, huh? All of them were seated in silence.
“Good morning everyone. Well, as was announced the other day, two transfer students will be spending two weeks with class A starting today. Let me introduced them to you. Second-kun, Silvisan, come in.”
Kevin-san spoke indifferently and then called out to us. Seems like it's our turn.
Silvia and I stepped into the classroom.
In that moment.
All the students breathed in at the same time, then it suddenly became noisy.
It’s now been a while since I came to this different world, so by now I know the reason.
I think, maybe it’s because of my appearance. Mine is a beautiful figure that is impossible to exist in reality. Really, as expected from the One-Time Premium store avatar.
“Alright then, introduce yourselves.”
Having reached the teaching platform, Kevin-san urged us.
“I’ve come visiting from the island nation of Zipang, my name is Second. Nice to meet you all.”
“Si-Silvia Virginia. Thank you for your consideration.”
When I gracefully made a light, elegant bow, the mellow voice of some girls could be heard. The male students, on the other hand, are dead quiet. Seems like they’re in a trance looking at Silvia’s lovely face.
“Thank you. You two can go ahead and take a seat.”Cheat sheet Stats details
