Early in the morning, I woke up to the sound of the attendance check alarm that went off every day at 6 o’clock.
I opened my eyes and meditated for a while.
After about 10 minutes, I went to the bathroom and lightly washed my face to freshen up.
After properly waking up, I changed into my sportswear and went straight out of the dormitory to the training ground prepared for the cadets inside the academy.
The training ground was unnecessarily wide and grand. It was probably because it was a space for practicing with all kinds of huge and powerful summons.
I began to run on the track in the middle. This track was also used to check the physical abilities of the summons, but often the cadets ran here to improve their stamina.
“Haah, haaah… ”
Although my current body was incomparable to my previous body, the track was prepared for summons who easily surpassed human limits, so even a trained cadet would find it daunting to run on it.
It took me close to 30 minutes to run one lap, and considering that I was running close to my full power for the entire 30 minutes, it could be seen how ridiculously long it was.
‘It’s quite demotivating when you consider the difference in power…’
It wasn’t for nothing that humans made contracts with summoned beings to defend the fate of the continent. It wasn’t uncommon for a knight, who was a battle specialist who had trained his whole life, to lose to a 1-star summon.
It was difficult for a platoon of battle hardened soldiers to face off against a 2-star summoned creature, and a 3-star summon couldn’t even be defeated by the force of an army!
In the Empire, summoners with such power were given the title of nobility and received their own territories.
It was also for that reason, that the Academy cadets tried their best to summon a higher tier summon.
After successfully circling the track, my breathing became rough and I began to sweat profusely.
“Whew… shall I go back?”
When I returned to the dormitory, it was already 7 o’clock, and it was time for the cadets to wake up one by one.
I showered and headed to the classroom.
In just one day, the way the cadets looked at me had changed drastically.
Honestly, it was a little difficult for me to get used to all the change in attitude.
“I will start conducting a proper class from today.”
Instructor Oliver looked at the cadets and declared.
‘Since it will be a proper class, it would probably be similar to the classes I had taken so far, full of wrong theories that were of no use.’
As if reading my thoughts, the instructor continued to speak while looking at me.
“Until yesterday, the summoning ceremony for all the cadets wasn’t completed yet, so we had no choice but to hold a theory class.”
‘Oh, it was because of me…’
Thinking about the troubles I had caused, I bowed my head. I had a conscience, so it was unavoidable.
“Everyone, change into your gym uniform and come to the first training ground.”
After that, the cadets went to their respective rooms. Since the dormitory was fairly close to the academy building, everyone went to change clothes in their rooms.
Of course I went to my room as well.
After I changed clothes and arrived at the training ground, the other cadets arrived one by one.
After confirming that all the cadets had arrived, instructor Oliver gathered us all together and summoned his summoned beast.
Standing next to the Stone Turtle whose whole body seemed to be made entirely of stone, he explained the contents of today’s practice class to the cadets.
“Each summon has their own unique skills. Anyone know what it’s called?”
“It’s called Origin Arts!” A cadet answered.
“Correct. Every summoner has a Origin Art, but not all summoners can use them. Can anyone tell me why?”
“Because they don’t have a strong bond with their summon!” Another cadet answered.
“Yes. Summoners who don’t increase their bond with their summon won’t be able to bring out the full abilities of their summons.”
Instructor Oliver spoke proudly as if what he was saying was the absolute truth, but as I listened to it, I felt my world collapse.
