Instructor Oliver, seemingly offended by my enquiries, wrinkled his face and said,
“Today is the first day… so we will begin the class.”
As if he said that in response to my question, he glanced at me once and opened the textbook, then proceeded with the class.
All the cadets groaned at the fact.
There was nothing to do except for the class, so I followed the instructor and opened the textbook. I read the textbook I had received at the entrance ceremony, but I had no idea what any of it meant.
“In this world, the type of a summon is determined only by luck. There is a saying that it is a fate that cannot be changed from birth.”
Tak! Tak! Tak!
Instructor Oliver said, as he scribbled something on the blackboard.
Anyways, it was a better lecture than I had expected.
“But that is not true. After long research, our summoners have figured out a way to summon specific summoned beings.”
No one knew exactly what summon would come out of the gacha until they were summoned. But it wasn’t that there was no way to get a specific summon at all. You just have to offer a sacrifice.
Doing so would summon a specific summon associated with the sacrifice that was used.
However, it was very hard to get a high level sacrifice.
Of course, as they were all very valuable items it would be even more difficult get my hands on them in the real world.
“The most widely known summon is the wolf series.”
After saying that, instructor Oliver began to draw a wolf on the blackboard. It was the most common 1-star summoned beast, commonly known as the wolf series.
There were more than ten kinds of wolves, each with a different color of fur, and it was most likely the thing that was used as a sacrifice to summon the beast.
“The selection method for this wolf series is very simple. You can summon a particular wolf by sacrificing its fur.”
“Instructor, is there any reason to summon a 1-star beast?”
“That’s a good question. This is to reduce the possibility of summoning other 1-star beasts, for example, the Blue Bird, which is known to be the most useless of 1-star beasts…”
I felt dizzy as I listened to their conversation. I didn’t know if I would faint if I listened to more of that bullsh*t.
‘What? They think the Blue Bird is the most useless?’
So, these people didn’t want something useful, and used a sacrifice to summon a garbage?
‘No, in the first place, why would you need a sacrifice for a 1-star summon?’
I wanted to sigh out loud. But I had already attracted a considerable amount of attention. Even if I corrected their misconception, I would only make my impressions worse by saying something that might be seen as controversial.
And, while I was quietly attending class while hiding my frustration, a student raised their hand.
“Instructor, please take back the comment that Blue Birds are the most useless.”
She spoke words that seemed to perfectly represent my feelings. I turned my head and looked back at the student who had said those words. Then I immediately turned my head back to how it was before.
“Cadet Syrah. What do you mean?”
“But… it’s a pity to call such a cute pet useless.”
Saying so, she summoned a Blue Bird from the back of her hand, and instructor Oliver frowned upon seeing it.
“It is against the rules to summon a summoned beast during class.”
“Oh, was it? Sorry~”
Although she apologized, Syrah didn’t send the Blue Bird back. Still, no one in the classroom complained against her.
I fixed my face on the blackboard to avoid making eye contact with her, pretending to focus on class and started acting normal.
‘Don’t look, don’t look…’
But as if my prayers were of no avail, Syrah quietly turned her head to look at me. She even smiled!
It was a refreshing smile, but I let out a deep sigh.
She was one of the main characters in the game, and also one of the most unpredictable female protagonists.
“Today’s class ends here. See you next time.”
After saying those words, instructor Oliver left the classroom.
The other cadets began to make friends by talking to the cadets they had became close with.
I got up and quickly got ready to get out of the classroom. And right at that moment, Syrah Acacia walked in front of me.
“Hey there, are you that Ian Clark?”
“That’s right. Do you need anything?”
“You were stating at me before? Why?”
‘When was I staring? It was you who said something weird in class and wanted to draw everyone’s attention!’
Of course I didn’t say that out loud. Because Syrah Acacia was a strange girl who moved only by her curiosity, and if I answered like that, she would continued to bother me as if she discovered an interesting creature.
No one wanted such a troublesome person to get attached to them.
“It was because I thought the same.”
“What you said. Blue Bird is not a useless summon.”
“Ah, that’s right!”
But despite my boring answer, she didn’t lose interest and kept asking.
“Why did you think so?”
“You can’t even summon… I mean the Clarks aren’t even a family that’s ever dealt with Blue Birds… so why?”
“Do you know about our family?”
“To some extent?”
Feeling a little curious about this girl who knew about my family, which even I didn’t know much about, I came up with an answer that the people of this world would be able to understand.
“It doesn’t make sense to consider that a Blue Bird would have the same ability as a Gray Wolf. People might think that they are useless in battle, but they might have some other abilities that might be useful elsewhere.”
“Well… is that so?”
“It’s reasonable to consider that the Blue Bird might have some other ability that might be useful.”
“Oh, that’s great. I’ve never seen anyone do that kind of analysis!”
Naturally, the ability of the Blue Bird was incomparable to that of a wolf. The problem was that a Blue Bird’s skills wouldn’t be unlocked until it leveled up.
And to people in this world who didn’t know how to level up their summons, the Blue Bird might indeed seem useless.
“Then, I’ll be leaving.”
“Wait a minute. One more thing!”
“You told Stella that you were confident that you would summon a 3-star summon.”
“How are you so sure about that?”
I paused, and looked at her.
Her eyes were urging for an answer, so I just grinned and gave a reply.
“After a week, see it with your own eyes.”
I ignored her, and quickly returned to my room.
