Episode 107 Midterm Exam (2)
―Equipment item <<Misteltain>> reacts.
―All effects of <<Mistiltain>> will be unlocked by fulfilling the conditions!
―You have acquired the passive skill 《Genius of Arms Manufacturing》.
―From now on, the grade of all equipment produced by the user will increase by 1.
Jaehyun had no choice but to open his mouth and stare at the crashing system window.
The item that had already given her an excellent skill called 《Magic Sensing》 shone again.
The corner of Jaehyun’s mouth soared and he didn’t know it would come down.
“I understand now. Why did the system say that at the time?”
The first time I equipped Mistiltane in a simulated dungeon.
Jaehyun received an unknown message from the system.
―Due to lack of conditions, only some effects of equipment are unlocked.
“I guess this is the real effect of Misteltein.”
I didn’t understand at first.
Why is the bracelet classified as a weapon and not an accessory?
However, now I know for sure.
If it’s an item that allows you to make equipment on the fly and go into battle, it’s natural for it to be classified as a weapon.
As soon as Jaehyun confirmed the effect of the skill, he jumped up from his seat.
《Formation of Magic Tools》.
It was to immediately check the performance of the item made with the newly acquired skill.
Jaehyun immediately put on his coat and headed to the training ground.
A week passed quickly after that.
The first day of the exam was bright.
* * *
On the first day, there were two subjects for the test.
The first things I studied were 《Mathematics》 and 《Understanding Magical Operations》.
The moment Jaehyun received the first test paper, he couldn’t help but tilt his head.
‘… Is it too easy than I thought?’
It was clearly an unexpected situation.
It is true that in the past, Jae-hyun did well in Milles’ theory test. However, it was the first time that the problem felt ‘easy’ to this extent.
Isn’t it the regular test of Milles Academy to say that daily life is as demanding as college assignments and as vague as thesis?
Jaehyun realized why the test felt so easy only after he solved all the questions.
‘Looking after the other kids, it seems that even I got better grades.’
It was a simple conclusion.
How to get better grades when teaching others than when studying alone.
After watching Ahn Ho-yeon and Seo E-na’s studies for several days, I was able to understand the contents of the textbook more deeply without realizing it.
‘I definitely passed 95 points.’
Jaehyun kept his momentum and easily cleared the second <Understanding Magic Calculation>.
Because the difficulty of the test itself was quite high, I heard voices from other cadets, but that was not the case at all for Jaehyun, who had already completed all the preparations for the midterm exam while studying the book of magic.
Anyway, that’s how the first day’s test was all over.
The theory test will be held until tomorrow and the day after tomorrow, and the practical test will be prepared after that.
The ratio of theory and practical grades at Miles Academy is 3 to 7. Of course, the actual skill is 7.
Neither of the two tests would be a big threat to Jaehyun now, but he had no intention of being complacent.
‘If you’re going to be complacent, there’s no reason to return to the past. You can’t relax.’
I suddenly made a promise, but Kim Yoo-jung came from behind waving to Jae-hyun.
A murmur was heard in the hallway.
“hey. Aren’t they them? The kids who got first place in the freshman hunt and got on the news. Min Jae-hyun and Kim Yoo-jung!”
“I guess that’s right. I don’t know anything else, but to be honest, how can you not recognize Min Jaehyun when he looks like that? is that a human face? Is this country?”
“Well, he’s not handsome… It’s scary there. I’m so jealous of Sibal.”
“By the way, where are Ahn Ho-yeon and Seo Ea-na?”
Jaehyun scratched his head as if embarrassed by the voice he heard.
Thanks to the amplification of the five senses after returning, I can hear the story about myself so clearly even if I don’t want to hear it.
Since I had never received any expectations in my previous life, this excessive interest was a bit burdensome.
‘Well, it’s still better than being criticized.’
Jaehyun decided to think as positively as possible.
Kim Yoo-jung, who had come close to me before I knew it, asked, sticking next to me.
“hey! Min Jaehyun, did you do well on the test?”
“I think I saw something good.”
At Jaehyun’s words, Kim Yoojung nodded.
“me too. But all the other kids said it was difficult. I should also take a good look.”
“Did Hoyeon give up?”
“She’s wrong. It’s good if you get out of the failing grade. The way I see it, there is no answer to his studies.”
Jaehyun said that with a small smile on his lips.
It was a peaceful day for the first time in a while.
‘what. For the time being, even Guzain won’t be able to walk around freely.’
Jain Koo recently lost his right-hand man, Seokgi Kim. In addition, the voice of the public about the absurdity of Milles Academy’s operation is gradually getting louder.
As a Gu Ja-in, it is a situation where there is no choice but to suffer from a lot of headaches.
Of course, this whole situation was led by Jaehyun and Yeonhwa guild, but Gu Jain probably couldn’t grasp all the information yet.
At most, he would perceive Jaehyun as a cadet with excellent grades, and Jaehyun had yet to reveal all of his skills.
Anyway, the most important thing.
At least that Gu Jain can’t move easily right now.
As Jaehyun, it was necessary to grow firmly at this timing.
comrades belonging to their faction. The same goes for Kim Yu-jeong, Seo E-na, Ahn Ho-yeon, Lee Jae-sang, and Seo Ah-hyun.
They also need to grow steadily. Afterwards, no matter what enemies appear in front of you, they will have to become stronger in order to face them without fear.
And Jaehyun implicitly thought of helping the party become stronger.
‘Anyway, it’s a problem that the kids have to work on… None of the kids get complacent easily.’
Jaehyun nodded slightly and looked at Ahn Hoyeon and Seo Ina walking in the hallway across from him with gloomy faces.
The two must have taken different tests since they were magic and martial arts, but their faces seemed to be strangely sympathetic.
“I heard that even a tiger will come when I say it. And you can be a prophet.”
“Look at their faces. Is that an expression you can do without getting a failing grade?”
Only then did Kim Yoo-jung move her eyes to the children behind her and laughed out loud.
“hey. you saw it too I did my best. know?”
“okay. That’s not your problem with me. It’s because they stopped studying.”
“Hasn’t studying lost both of them?”
“That makes sense too… … .”
“… too bad. We’ve all heard.”
Seo Ina said as she approached Jaehyun with her eyes narrowed. It was a bonus to poke Kim Yoo-jung’s side with her elbow.
Ahn Ho-yeon didn’t say anything with a stunned expression on his face, as if he didn’t leave the thought of the miserable test paper despite the two men’s beatings.
“Let’s start with scoring. Then I have to study the seven subjects tomorrow.”
At Jaehyun’s words, Seo Ina and Ahn Hoyeon’s expressions began to darken again.
It was the beginning of the second act of the midterm exam.
Kim Yoo-jung pondered for a while, then put her hand on the shoulders of the two and said.
“hmm… what is it. I think that’s just it. When raiders catch a boss mob, don’t you know that it goes over to phase 2? Just changing the pattern. You can see it like that.”
“… Is that a comfort?”
When Jaehyun was dumbfounded, Kim Yoojung coughed and leaned against the wall.
The two, who were almost certain to fail, still had gloomy faces.
* * *
“Soo-hyeok, did you do well on the test?”
At the words of Kim Min-soo who asked from the side, Lee Soo-hyeok raised an eyebrow and said.
‘Well, I think three or four are wrong, but this is not bad. This time, I will overcome the baby Min Jae -hyun. ‘
Lee Soo-hyeok had trouble with Min Jae-hyeon in the AR room test the other day. Of course, he started a fight himself, but he was quite annoyed by Min Jae-hyeon’s provocation.
While thinking with a fishy smile, Kim Min-soo suddenly shook his head.
‘Has that bastard lost his second bottle again? Has anything changed from when you were in middle school?’
However, it did not come out of my mouth. Talking about it will only get you beaten.
‘What’s obvious? He must be worrying about how to get into a fight with Min Jae-hyun again.’
After taking a small sigh, Kim Min-soo recalled the rumors about Min Jae-hyeon.
[Even in the mock dungeon case, if it wasn’t for him, everyone inside would have died.]
[Eh? personality breakdown? Is he really nice? Cool.]
[It’s expensive, but it’s voluntary. look at the face Is that an ugly face?]
[This theory test was also completely wrong. It’s a big deal.]
[It was very popular. I’m jealous even talking about it.]
Kim Min-soo could hardly figure out where such an irregularity came from.
Talent in all areas.
It was a position that could be said to be ambiguous in general, but Jaehyun was different.
He overwhelmed all fields and was showing results close to astonishment. It is natural that the attention of the instructors is also focused.
‘I hope he doesn’t needlessly fight.’
Although he sticks by his side due to the affection he has been with since middle school, there was a corner where it was difficult to say that Lee Soo-hyeok’s personality was good even with empty words.
It’s about dozens of times that I stopped trying to fight with others, so it’s enough to say everything.
‘If it’s fortunate, it’s that I was so strong that I didn’t get hit by other people… … .’
The problem is that the situation worsened as he touched Min Jae-hyeon.
In Milles Academy, each faction exists. Unlike other general high schools, the unidirectionally determined career path determines their future and forms a group.
For this reason, those with high grades have their own groups, and those in the middle ranks also have their own groups.
The problem is that Jae-hyun and Lee Soo-hyeok are both high-ranking cadets, so they will inevitably collide at some point.
But Lee Soo-hyeok didn’t seem to care about that.
It’s just not thinking.
‘That unanswered bastard… … .’
Kim Min-soo sighed and left.
* * *
After the second two-day theory exam was over.
The party gathered at the hideout.
In the next few days, two consecutive practical tests were waiting, so it was to finish the rough plan.
The exam, which will begin in three days, desperately needs Lee’s help.
What a manufacturing test.
For reference, none of the people gathered here were good at alchemy.
No, in the first place, Jaehyun and Kim Yu-jung were clumsy at the preparation itself.
Kim Yoo-jung, who made purple cookies during household chores, and Jae-hyun, who almost wasted all the ingredients for the elixir. It would have been difficult for both of them to pass this exam easily.
Because of this, they came to seek advice from Lee Jae-sang.
Lee Jae-sang readily agreed to teach the party at Jae-hyeon’s request.
“Well then, go and teach me about alchemy. Gyo, did you finish reading the textbook?”
“Hey, can you show me? Poetry, you have to look at your skills in advance.”
At Lee Jae-sang’s words, the party headed to the magic engineering facility next to Milles’s main building.
It’s been a long time since the magic engineering facility was reproduced, so it was a new feeling.
Lee Jae-sang told them to prepare the potion they were going to make in the test.
Since it was not a difficult test, it took two hours to make all the potions.
two hours later.
Lee Jae-sang’s expression darkened noticeably.
Obviously, it wasn’t like this when Seo In-na and Ahn Ho-yeon made the potion for the first time… … .
At some point, the pupil lost his way and started to wander.
Now, Lee Jae-sang was secretly watching Jae-hyun and Kim Yoo-jung.
Jaehyun asked, tilting his head.
“What’s wrong. brother?”
“G-g-g-g, that… … .”
“It’s okay, so tell me.”
At Jaehyun’s words, Lee Jaesang raised his head and said as if he had made up his mind.
“Yoo, if Yu-jung and you continue like this, I will get a failing grade.”
After questioning at the same time, the two looked at each other.
Lee Jae-sang closed his eyes as if he didn’t understand.
“You you you, you guys are so good at alchemy… I have no talent at all!”
Jaehyun’s head throbbed.
… It seemed that things were not going to be easy.
