I Became The Academy’s Blind Swordsman - c9
EP.9 Female Dormitory
The results of the class assignment test came out.
“What class are you in?”
“I don’t know… I died without doing anything…”
“That’s right. You said you met her. Aizel…”
“All the four element families are class A. Lucky bastards.”
Cadets were huddling in front of the bulletin board.
I tried to find any gap between them and talked to them.
Even though I checked the results this was a necessary task for me.
“Hey, I’m sorry, but could you check where my name is?”
“Oh? Yeah, yeah. What’s your name?”
“Zetto…Zetto… Oh! There it is!”
“Which class is it?”
“Class A! That’s amazing. I think… You! You’re the one who competed with Aamon”
…I think I’ve chosen a noisy one. His loud voice rang out and the cadets’ attention began to focus on me.
“Aamon? Oh, I remember. That blindfolded guy with the bandage.”
“Didn’t the Gauntlets break down then?””
“It was crazy. How can you powder that hard-looking rock with a sword?”
“Caligus didn’t do much either. He lost to the blind guy.”
“I died while playing tricks on him. He’s really strong. And he also does the magic.”
It was a burdensome situation fortunately, I was able to get out of their gap safely because they didn’t recognize the dispel or asked me questions.
‘Acting… is not easy.’
Aizel, who acted as natural as breathing, is admirable.
I had to act blind so I could spend a safer academy life.
There was nothing I could do to survive except continuing to act blind.
My goal was to make sure that I could understand and move on even if I made a noticeable mistake someday.
For example, if I visit a store for the first time, I can ask the name of the store.
I don’t know what’s going on because I can’t see the screen at the test site.
Furthermore, there was no technology here to help the blind, such as braille, so I couldn’t even step into the library.
There were various stories and quests in the library, but I gave up right now.
‘Well, I don’t know if someone can help me read books.’
It’s not like I can’t go at all.
I checked the test results so I still have quite a lot of free time until tomorrow before the first class starts.
I looked at the bracelet on my wrist.
The bracelet of origin is an epic-grade item and it had the effects of increasing the amount of mana and physical recovery.
Mana is consumed from the moment it’s used.
For example, using mana to demonstrate magic, or injecting my mana into the sword to extract the sword’s spirit or the sword’s strength, those were all factors that consumed mana.
Since it was Raina’s bracelet it was a perfect item for dealing with magic and I’m sure it will be of great help in my training.
If I recovered my physical strength quickly, I could train more.
I have something else to do today.
Essential conditions for eliciting the original performance of Ghost Slayer Technique.
I had to step up to speed on producing the ‘Spectral sword’.
I had to get the ingredients first.
The ingredients that will make the sword withstand the strong evil spirit.
Buying at the auction house may be a way, but I don’t have much money yet.
Some of them are ridiculously expensive.
So the best way is to get it myself.
The first ingredient to get was ‘petal’.
You must wonder why I would need flower petals to make a sword?
You didn’t hear it wrong.
As much, an Spectralsword was very different from an ordinary sword. Although the sword looks and uses the same, it’s essentially a kind of vessel that captures the soul.
Of course not with ordinary flowers.
It has to be a rare kind.
But it’s not far away.
The first reason I tried to find it was simply because it was the closest.
The problem is that the place where the flower is located is the “female dormitory” inside the academy.
Boys obviously cannot go inside.
For this reason, ‘If you’re going to start with the Spectralsword, make sure you choose a female character.’, it was one of the tips if you choose Spectralsword users.
Let’s say if I go with the tip… If I had made a female character, not the current Zetto, wouldn’t I be suffering from terrible exhaustion by now.
Changing gender is a difficult thing to go through.
I let out a sigh of relief.
Giving up petals and using other ingredients is also another solution.
However, if the distance is close and I can enter, it should be easy.
There’s no shortage of ingredients for the Spectralsword.
So I’m going to try.
Rather, I think it may be worthwhile considering my ‘characteristics’.
‘If I can’t, I’ll sneak in at night.’
As the ingredient was petal, it would take a long time to get them as I need to wait until the flowers fall.
It was always in bloom at the beginning of the game, so it had to be now.
“You! Boys cannot go inside!”
The security guard outside the dormitory stopped me.
I scratched my head and waited for the guard to approach me.
“Why would a man…”
The guard caught my face in his eyes and was speechless for a moment. I had to aim for this moment.
“…I’m sorry. I want to tell my friend something urgently. My friend… She seemed very angry. I thought I could lose my friend at this rate, so I couldn’t… I couldn’t get my act together.”
I bowed down with that.
My voice carried as much emotion as possible.
“You’re a cadet… with a vision disability… Friend… Haa… Oh, my.”
“It’s okay. I can make friends again. Although, she was a good friend…”
The guard looked at me and clicked his tongue, then suddenly grabbed me by the shoulder.
“For human relationships… I think timing is always important. I used to… I’ve done a lot of stupid things. But as always, it’s hard to go back after it changed.”
The security guard desperately sympathized with me whether he had his own deep story.
“…I guess you wouldn’t do anything stupid, so it’ll be fine. Here’s my badge. Go and work it out somehow!”
The security guard put his badge on my chest and screamed at me.
‘This will work.’
I didn’t know it would be solved so easily.
Somehow I was lucky to meet this security guard.
I was able to jump over the wall of the ‘female dormitory’, which was so strict and high for men.
As I entered the female dormitory, which can be called the ‘unknown world’ for men, a long corridor unfolded.
The structure wasn’t much different from the male dormitory.
The destination is the backyard.
Just go straight to the end of the hallway.
“… A boy?”
“How did you get in here?”
“Who knows! Leave him alone, he’s blind anyway.”
“Wasn’t he the one who was with Yuri Clementine?””
“Are those two dating?”
“No way. That snobbish ‘Yuri Clementine?'”
I ran into female cadets on my way and they chit-chatted, but they didn’t bother to kick me out.
Eventually, I arrived safely in the backyard.
Luckily there was no one in the backyard.
‘It should be here…’
I began to rummage through the backyard flower garden.
As I was rummaging around for a few minutes.
Finally, I was able to find the flowers in full bloom.
‘The last petals of Piaget.’
It wasn’t the name of the flower, but the petal, so the name of the item as a material.
This flower contained a spiritual energy, so it had a strong resistance to evil energy like evil spirit.
I remember that this flower has a special story behind it, but unfortunately, I didn’t remember the story.
I took out a small bottle in my pocket, then picked each petal and put it in a bottle.
I finished collecting them.
It was a pretty simple task compared to the entering part.
Now all I have to do is get away smoothly.
I put a bottle of petals inside and went straight into the hallway as if nothing had happened.
Things worked out better than I thought.
The remaining materials are rare metals.
And a byproduct of certain monsters.
It’s like an item with a soulful memory to seal.
I will try to find them whenever I have time after class.
‘Cause it’s still morning… Shall I focus on training for the remaining time?’
Training, quests, leveling, and producing Spectralsword.
Everything had to be done.
This means that when the class starts, I will be busier in the future.
‘I wish I had two bodies.’
By the time I reached the end of the long hallway of the female dormitory, the entrance was just around the corner.
Someone was coming down the stairs calling my name.
The owner of the voice was Yuri Clementine.
She looked like she just took a shower, but her braided hair was slightly wet, unlike usual.
She wasn’t wearing the uniform, but a comfortable outfit. An outstanding black sleeveless shirt, which was pretty revealing.
“Why… are you here?”
Yuri was panicking.
A “boy” who should not exist in the female dormitory was walking around calmly.
What excuse should I make this time?
I didn’t think I would meet someone I knew, so I didn’t have anything to say.
“Oh, my. It’s nice to see you in the morning.”
“I mean… Why are you here? Are you…”
I was about to play innocent, but Yuri’s eyes quickly became sharp.
She was suspicious of me.
If her doubts become clear, it will turn into a contemptuous look at the insidious embargo.
But I was an exception.
At least I could be free from such doubts.
Yuri seemed to have noticed late, so I just need to pile on it.
“What do you mean?”
“…No, nothing. It can’t be, right? What nonsense did I think!”
Yuri’s eyes eventually reached the blindfold.
It was only then that she realized that she had been mistaken for a moment that my eyes were brightened.
But I… I couldn’t take my eyes off Yuri’s chest that was endlessly generous to me.
Her beautiful chest was revealed once the uniform was taken off
My conscience’s situation is very dangerous.
The more she understands me, the more I feel guilty.
‘It’s just an instinct.’
Then, I continued talking to Yuri with an awkward laugh.
“Haha. You must have been flustered. I was going to go out after doing my things quickly. Of course, I’ve got permission from the security guard.”
I pointed to the badge that was handed to many security guards earlier.
“So… What business was it that you had to come here?”
Yuri approached me with her hand on her chest, as if she was ashamed of something even if I was blind.
It wasn’t a special street when I thought about the usual situation, but it was quite dangerous now.
The remains are approaching with powerful ‘weapons’ even though most boys might fall.
My business… Something to do here…
I had to answer Yuri’s pure question, but I couldn’t think of anything.
The seductive atmosphere that she doesn’t even recognize made my mind go blank.
It was then.
Another familiar voice came from behind me.
“Zetto, what are you doing there?”
She talked informally even though we never decided to drop honorifics.
Her shocking remark with an unenthusiastic expression followed.
“If there’s nothing else, let’s go quickly. I’m hungry.”
Yuri’s expression looked blank.
But my soul also left my body.
‘…What the hell is going on?’
All of a sudden, the situation now looks like me coming to the dormitory to see Aizel.
I’m dropping this novel, it was a mistake picking up another novel when i have my hands full on Villain.
Sorry for those who were enjoying the novel, hopefully another group will pick up this novel to do it justice.
