Chapter 12: Although I know that it’s childish
Emilia Arkland had confidence that she excels.
In the first place, she thinks that people who doesn’t have confidence in themselves shouldn’t be an instructor.
It would be rude to the students.
I decided to be an adventurer at 14.
I was saved from an orcs and goblins horde that attacked our village by the Great Sage who was nearby by chance.
Living legend, Calrotte Gyrdorea.
Her silvery-white hair that flutters by the wind was beautiful. Her back, looked so manly. The one attack that she swept the orcs and goblins with, it was very dazzling.
And ,”It’s all right now”, her smile the time she reached out her hand to me while saying that, she looked like a goddess to me.
And the next year, Emilia entered the Royal Gyrdorea Adventurer School.
After three years, she graduated with summa cum laude, and became a C-Ranker Adventurer.
From there, she rose up with irresistible force, and climbed up to B-Rank in only two years.
And a month after that.
She quickly sensed the dragon that flew nearby the royal capital, and defeated it by herself.
With this, she became A-Rank. At that time, 20 years old.
She was the youngest living A-Ranker Adventurer.
And from the Great Sage that she admired, she received the title of “Dragon Slayer”, and was invited to be an instructor of the school.
And, right now, 23 years old.
Even now, I still have no doubts that I excel.
Even as an instructor, I had been doing well up until now.
But, this year’s freshmen are ridiculous.
Emilia’s aptitude in magic is 80-90. At her class year, she was the most talented.
But this year, being over 80 at their best skills are not uncommon. There are also those who exceeded 90.
If you talk about Charlotte Gazard, her aptitude in attack magic is 120. A genius among the geniuses.
And what makes that to the extreme is, Laura Edmonds.
Magic aptitude value all 9999.
It was ridiculous numbers, that all you can do left was to laugh.
Every instructor, became restless in front of Laura’s talent.
Even if white was black, she should enter the Magic Department, they became rushing like that.
It was some kind of a panic situation. After all, she had more talents than the Great Sage.
And Emilia, was happy because she became the homeroom teacher of the magic aptitude value all 9999 girl.
She was looking forward on how she would grow.
Simply, she would grow a hundred times faster than a decent genius. She might become stronger than herself by the time of graduationーーshe had half-hearted recognition about it.
That was naive.
In the first day of class, she shot that magic with ridiculous power, and she almost killed all freshmen.
And Emilia, couldn’t protect the students completely.
The defence barrier that Emilia constructed, was on the verge of collapsing
But, Laura cuts in the magic formula, poured in magic, and strengthened it.
Thanks to that, everyone had no scratch. It ended without anything happening.
「A 9 year old girl who had just entered school, cuts in my magic formula, and even strengthened it……what the, what was that. Even I, have pride at least」
It’s not like she had bad intentions.
Instead, I should’ve said thanks to her, for stopping it from becoming a devastation.
But, not being honest there, is my immature part.
Envy comes first.
I felt like all the hard work that I had done until now, was denied.
The path that I walked through for years, was only the first step to that girl, I was shown that.
「And to protect that small pride, I picked a fight with a student……Really, what am I doing」
If it was alright, at least during after school, I would’ve let her practice her sword.
More than that, after the freshmen got used to school quite a bit, Emilia would’ve said that herself.
But instead of that, Emilia was enraged by the words “there’s nothing to learn from someone who’s weaker than me”.
The opponent was a child, and also seriously.
Instructor failure. Adult failure.
While being conscious of that, Emilia, will be on a duel against Laura tomorrow. There is no change on that plan.
After all, I’m an adventurer.
There no way “normal adults” would exist in adventurers.
If they see someone stronger than themselves, challenging them is the only choice.
If not, you cannot say that you are an adventurer.
That is why half of the instructors, have experience of challenging the Great Sage and had met defeat.
There was co-workers that said that. But in that face “I’m jealous” is written.
「If you lost, I’m the one next」
There were also instructors who honestly said that.
Really, really, what a timely group.
Although they are usually making a bossy look in front of the students. Their mental age hadn’t changed since their teens.
They cannot help themselves wanting to fight.
In front of Laura Edmonds, who was a chunk of talents, ignoring and thinking that she was a different living thing than themselves, was the proof of being normal. It’s how adults think.
Emilia Arkland is 23 years old. After half a year, she would be 24.
But tomorrow, with all of her heart put into it, she is prepared to fight that super-genius.
Without caring about the win or loss, she is planning to recognize Laura’s freedom after school, this is already, a fight for herself.
Of course, if they’re going to do it, she’s planning to win.

thank for the update
Thanks for the chapter!
Thanks for the chapter.
Thanks for the update
Although I know the result for the raws, I would wish that the author has done Laura to directly reclaim to be transferred to the warrior departament or she would give up the academy.
Seeing the director’s chara, I think that s/he would have accepted this, seeing that it isn’t productive force a child against her will, and try to teach her magic a few years later
or perhaps have a joint training to make a new school division “magic knight”
And I repeat
It can be cute the idea about a magic swordman, but in this type of worlds clearly exists a rivalty warriors vs mages. So even if she want to work as a warrior in the future, I see very complicated that someone take seriosly someone “officially” trained as a mage and claiming to be a warrior
People who only take that “officially” of yours are most likely people who are just jealous of her strength. But if your a smart person, taking in a person who could fight at the front, able to use strong offensive magic, resistant to magic itself and able to heal the party., is pretty much a smart choice. And even if no party would take he, she could always go solo. After all, her parents did go through without anyone else in their party.
Seeing her behaviour, she probably want to fight with a party, sometimes friends and other times temporal companions. Would you consider dependable a person officially marked as a mage but fighting in front line with a sword?
Pd: For my previous chapter explanation (trying to explain better, you said didn’t understand me)
It isn’t explained how much is currently known the discovery about a person with 9999 aptitute in all magic-related. I imagine a setting where the character, real or imaginated, finally go to warrior departament, and some time later some important magic-related people asking
A: Why so impresive people isn’t being taught in magic departament?
B: This was the original intent, and although she was a bit relucted we could convince to be the best, but it happened a problem
A: a problem?
B: She was originally intended to be a warrior, and in her free time after class she went to warrior departament for a match….
A: I can’t see any problem. Even for the mages is fine to be lively and training a bit the muscles
B: well, yes, but an instructor saw this and stopped the match, claiming that she should just training in magic and ignore her wishes for the “common well of the humanity”, probably a bit cruel say a nine years old child this. So she exploded and she went to the director and reclaim to return to warrior departament or she would give the academy. The director, feeling responsable to transfer her ignoring her personal desires and circumstances, acepted. Also s/he promised to speak again about this if she try the magic and really hate all this
A. So, it’s all these closed-vison’s teachers fault?
All hail LOLI!!!!!
Ah, more sympathy for Emilia now.
Thanks so much for all your hard work!!!
Is the Teacher’s fault, to ignore the student’s wish, just for envy and the glory to be the “super-genius” structor
And the MC has just proved to be a stupid or just a child. She could have used this problem as excuse to reclaim that she can’t stand more, saying that she’s hating the magic now, and insist to be transferred to warrior’s departament or she will get out from there
I’m sure that the parents will aprove all this, and they will enroll her in other exclusive-warrior academy to avoid to repeat this
guys come on, the MC is 9 years old so of course she’s gonna act that way.
also the parents signed a contract for the MC to be there which means she cant actually leave and her parent are far weaker the the great sage so honestly what the parents want doesn’t matter. plus the MC is to honest so i doubt she will say she hates magic since A) she likes magic and B) she’d be insulting her 1 friend by saying that
Just catch up with the latest chapter. Thanks for you hard works!
This author is such a tease, builds up the suspense for an epic duel and tgen delays it with extra stuff and other povs. What is this, a xianxia?
Thanks for the chapter.
no.. it’s clearly a flag that sensei will lose!
as always thank you for the amazing chapter :3
Technically, there are faults for both sides but Laura did act like a child (and so what if she’s 9? She’s living in a society where she’s supposed to step up, and she DID in multiple occasion, just apparently not behaviour, which is “fine” since she’s a child – make up your mind people really). I get that Laura should have the right to do what she wants since she’s stronger, especially since her talent is the “never before seen until now” kind, but her being a child about it wasn’t the right thing to do. It’s clear already (in my opinion) that the teacher will lose but seriously, if I was the teacher (and had more sense), I still wouldn’t forfeit or anything because young or not, once your a student in the institution, being respectful and being expressive should be thought out carefully and if the student doesn’t think like that, then contract or no contract, stronger or weaker, should be or not, then you’re better off not here.
This is just me ranting because I’ve seen too many people and situations like this so yeah, I apologize.
