Early July.

After the final terms were over and gradings were done with, the results were posted on the main entrance of each class.


Though the mid-term exam results are important too, it’s the final term exam results that will be marked down to the next two semesters, isn’t it?


As it’s so the cadets who were more nervous than usual, flocked towards to main entrance and either cheered or lamented while looking at the results.


And among them, the main entrance of the DIA class.




Everyone gave a dumbstruck expression at the results of Kang Yoo-sik, who topped the 1st Grade in one attempt.


They said that there wasn’t any cadet in the 1st grade who was remarkable enough to stand out but the cadet from the silver class takes the top spot in a heartbeat?



At the unbelievable results, the cadets looked through the scores of each test he took.


“Practical skills are practical skills anyway but he’s got overwhelming writing skills huh”



“Getting a full score on the mana test was possible?”


“It wouldn’t make sense only if Kang Yoo-sik couldn’t get it, if he cannot then who else is going to?”


That’s true as well.”


The mana test that was so notorious at the Sungjin Military Academy.


The full score that was never received ever since Ban Hye-young joined as a professor, had appeared for the very first time and the cadets were surprised at the results but didn’t doubt or question it either.



That’s because they already know Kang Yoo-sik is not in the same level of cadets after his performance at the last Magic Formula Creation Competition had spread around.


And right when all the cadets were feeling phenomenal about Kang Yoo-sik’s results…


“Who expected you to write such an answer… That’s why I couldn’t help but give you a full score?!”


“I get it so please stop it……”


Kang Yoo-sik looked away and sipped his tea at Ban Hye-young who was talking excitedly.


When I was asked to come immediately on the result announcement day, I came thinking Tao Fei’s things probably arrived but what do you mean congratulations on a full score.



Looks like her mouth felt quite itchy for not being able to tell it all throughout the grading period.


“The last answer, let’s put it in the thesis.
I think it will be perfect to explain the core of magic.”


“Do as you wish.”


“Why are you talking as if it’s someone else’s work? Since it is summer vacation starting tomorrow, write the thesis like you promised.”




When she’s about to rise up from the seat, Kang Yoo-sik turned his head slightly and nodded.


Of course.
I already have it all prepared as well.”




“You think I’d lie over this?”


Honestly, he hadn’t prepared at all.
But since he couldn’t say it openly, Kang Yoo-sik had a confident look on his face while Ban Hye-young had a satisfied look on her face.


“Alright alright.
I said so because people around are making a big deal of it asking to publish it.
So I can finish all the proving I’ve put off in this summer”


Kang Yoo-sik naturally changes the topic at the very much enthusiastic Ban Hye-young.


“Anyways, what about Percival?”






At the snap of Ban Hye-young’s finger, a small box came flying from the next room and opened in front of Kang Yoo-sik.


There wasn’t any big difference from before in the aids or controls but the pendant had slightly changed.


“There are 4 extra gems, isn’t it?”


Those too had been added so naturally to a point that if someone saw it without knowing, they’d be mistaken that it was the original form of the pendant.


“What’s with the gems that have been added?”


I included some information that I thought would be helpful to you and added them.
Thankfully it’s compatible.”


“You added information?”


As Kang Yoo-sik looked surprised, Ban Hye-young gave a sly smile.


“It’s impossible to unseal it without the parts but something as adding information is quite simple.
It will be very useful in the future.”


“Huh… how does it work?”


“You can just take it like I taught it some basic knowledge.
It will be faster and more accurate than before because you can get information based on that and do the math.”


To put it simply, she means that she’s turned him into a smarter guy than before.
Kang Yoo-sik slightly smiled at Ban Hye-young’s favor.


“Thank you, professor.”


“No it’s just….
as you’ll be writing the thesis and will be working hard here and there in future, I’m just doing an early service to you.”


“But still, I can’t deny that I’m thankful to you.
Thank you for real.”


“No, it’s just.


Ban Hye-young who cleared her throat with her face flushing red, turned away to calm down and continued.


“And I got a call from Tao Fei.”


“What is it about?”


“He said that he’s sorry, that you’ve got to wait a little bit more.
He said that the item is decided but looks like it would take some time because there are objections from all directions to bring it.”


Kang Yoo-sik gave a strange expression at Ban Hye-young’s words.
What kind of incredible thing on earth is he trying to bring, to a point that people around are trying to stop it.


‘If it’s the best item out of all items that Tao Fei owns…….’


Kang Yoo-sik who was deeply mulling over his memory smirked and shook his head.


‘It won’t be that, right.’


That item is an S-class equipment with a tremendous power, to a point that several possibilities were identified and was later treated as China’s national treasure after Tao Fei’s death.


Though I can say it’s not discovered yet in this time period, since it will be the most valuable equipment, there’s no way Tao Fei will hand it over unless he is senile.


‘Looks like it’s time consuming.’


Looking at how he asked me if I can come to Cheonmu Palace last time, he could be dragging this to make me go there myself too.


Kang Yoo-sik who thought how sneaky this old man was, nodded deciding to wait and see what happens. 


“Tell him to give it when it’s possible.
Since it’s not that urgent anyway.”


I’ll be looking into it if it gets delayed so don’t worry about it.”


Then I’ll be leaving first, as I have another appointment.”


Let’s meet during the summer vacation~.”


Kang Yoo-sik who sees off Ban Hye-young, went to his next appointment location, the park, and sat on the bench.


“There’s still time left…… Should I see my messages until then?”


Kang Yoo-sik who pulled out his phone, read the messages he received while he was having a conversation with Ban Hye-young.


[Gold Class Retention Success! Victory in commemorative sparring as well! ^O^V]


Lee Ha-rin, who sent a proof-shot of the sparring as usual that somehow managed to happen on the same day as the result announcement.


[I got promoted to DIA class!! Everything was thanks to Yoo-sik hyung!! Grandpa was thankful too and asked you to definitely come home once! And also, I will seriously treat you properly during this summer vacation!]


Exuberant Lee Byung-ho, whose excitement can be seen just by the text.


[Can I keep meeting you even during the vacation?]


Said oddly aggressive Cha Si-hyun.


Though the text content was different from the others, there wasn’t a single person who looked like they weren’t satisfied with the test results.


But just one person.
Kim Jin-hyuk, there hasn’t been any news from him after the message he sent yesterday.


[Can I meet you for a while after you see the result announcement?]


A text that looks strangely subdued.
Kang Yoo-sik stroked his chin reading it again.


would mean that right.’


There’s only one reason for him to send such a message.
Right when Kang Yoo-sik was making a slightly strange expression…


You came early.”


Kim Jin-hyuk who arrived at the park walked towards him. 


“Sorry for being late.”


“Why it’s still just 10 minutes before the appointment.
Did you have lunch?”


“I just had a light meal.
What about you?”


“I had breakfast late, so I’m planning on having lunch later.”


The two guys who sat side by side on the bench and had a small chat.
Kang Yoo-sik who examined the atmosphere enough, asked frankly.


“How did the test results turn out?”


Kim Jin-hyuk kept his mouth shut for a while at Kang Yoo-sik’s question and muttered a bitter expression.


“I have a feeling it’d be gold class.”


Though leveling up is a delightful thing to others, it’s a result that’s not bad but yet unpleasant to Kim Jin-hyuk who secretly aimed for DIA class.


Kang Yoo-sik tapped on the shoulder of Kim Jin-hyuk who looked despondent.


“Don’t be too disappointed.
Since it was because the stats were lacking, you will definitely be able to go to DIA class around 2nd Grade.”


“I’d be happy too if I can do that.”


Kang Yoo-sik gave a mysterious expression at Kim Jin-hyuk who had lost confidence more than what he had imagined.


“Is there anything wrong?”


At his question, Kim Jin-hyuk contemplated whether to tell him or not and eventually let it out while sighing. 


“We were on par not long ago, but lately I’m getting run over by Byeong-ho you know.
I’m even getting a sense of skill lessness but there isn’t any big result of it.
I was just wondering if the pace of my development has started to slow down……”


To be precise, it’s just Lee Byeong-ho who started to deal with his brain myths properly that developed at an incredible pace, but saying that is not going to be any word of comfort to him either.


‘And it’s because I definitely felt the pace of development.’


To be exact, he slowed down because he made him learn another weapon, but Kang Yoo-sik who wiped that memory out of him just stroked his chin thinking.


‘I found my place too so should I start trying to awaken him.’


Since he already signed him up for the club, if he snaps him out of it well, it’s not that he can take his interest away but that their evaluation will go up together.


Kang Yoo-sik who made a decision was deeply lost in thought thinking about which method he’s going to use on him. 


‘Dungeon is still dangerous so…… indeed, a teacher is the best at a time like this.’


Didn’t Lee Byeong-ho too learn within a blink of an eye since he learned from him? What Kim Jin-hyuk needs the most right now is an excellent teacher who will awaken his talents than skills.


As Kang Yoo-sik had already decided on the candidate, he smiled at the thought of his plans on leaving for Italy the next day.






Kang Yoo-sik put his hands on Kim Jin-hyuk’s shoulder, who’s looking with a mysterious expression on his face.


“Let’s go to Italy together.”


“Huh, uh? Why suddenly?”


Kang Yoo-sik smiled at a flustered Kim Jin-hyuk.


“To find your teacher.”


Sicily of Italy, which is known as the largest island in the Mediterranean.


Palermo, one of the cities there, is a bustling city that attracts many tourists as the cultural & tourism hub and had a splendid scenery standing to its reputation.




Kim Jin-hyuk who visited Palermo for the first time ever, looked at his surroundings with his mouth wide open while Kang Yoo-sik who walked beside him chuckled at the sight.


‘This country guy is walking around looking obvious huh.’


Since it’s a place Kang Yoo-sik visited often before his return, he moved on looking at it with familiarity, and pulled out his phone to check his missed calls and unread messages.


[We have to start writing the thesis starting today! Let’s get to the lab to work!]


[Are you still sleeping? You can’t be lazy starting the first day of summer vacation.]


[The tea is getting cold.
When are you coming?]


[Trip to Italy……? You’re not kidding, are you? Call me if you see this message.]


[Pick up the phone you son of a…….]




I sneaked out thinking that she’d not send me no matter what, but Ban Hye-young’s reaction is fierce than I imagined.


Since we have a debt relationship she wouldn’t beat me up like a dog or use magic on me but there’s a probability of me getting gently grabbed by the collar.


‘Anyways, I can use it with time and take it, isn’t it!’


Kang Yoo-sik who decided on not thinking of it, for now, put his phone into his pocket and checked the address around.


‘By the way, it should be somewhere around here…… ah, there it is.’


Kang Yoo-sik who walked for a while found the alleyway of his memory and grabbed Kim Jin-hyuk.


“It’s this way.”


“Ah, okay.”


Kang Yoo-sik chucked at Kim Jin-hyuk who looked slightly felt like it was a bummer.


“We’ll have time for sightseeing so don’t worry and just follow me.”


“Ah, alright.”


Maybe out of embarrassment that his inner feelings were exposed, Kim Jin-hyuk followed with his face flushed red while Kang Yoo-sik walked forward while looking at the surrounding buildings.


“Yoo-sik, Is this the studio you were talking about?”


It’s this one.”


“Uhm… there isn’t a sign or anything at all though?”


Kang Yoo-sik chuckled at Kim Jin-hyuk who gave a mysterious expression and grabbed the door handle.


“That’s because it’s a studio that isn’t expecting any customers.”




A neat and tidy hallway was seen right when the door was opened and Kang Yoo-sik went inside without any hesitation.


A window where you can see the opposite side of the alleyway and an antique stand.
The interior with a soft sofa with a table and even a TV, it looked like anyone could tell it’s an ordinary living room.




Right when Kim Jin-hyuk was looking around feeling like he entered the wrong place, Kang Yoo-sik who discovered a table bell lying on the table, smiled and tapped on it lightly.




The sound of the bell rang clearly through the room, and footsteps were heard a while later from the staircase that goes to the 2nd floor, revealing a middle-aged man.


That look with a mustache covering the philtrum and neatly groomed hair.
Red necktie on a white dress shirt.
Chestnut-colored vest with brown suit pants suited him so much to a point that it could defy the word ‘Gentleman’.




But Kim Jin-hyuk’s expression hardened in an instant after witnessing that and Percival who was on his neck too started muttering urgently.


– Lord.
You’ve been exposed to the opponent’s range.
I recommend you to maintain a distance of 300m for safety purposes.


A sharp spirit that automatically makes the opponent nervous, without even having to show hostility.
At that appearance, Kang Yoo-sik read the information on the memory map that appeared in front of him. 


(Fiore Angelo) (S-class hunter) (mysterious death)


“Who are you guys?”


He’s called the Master and it won’t be an exaggeration to describe this person as the pinnacle of the sword if one person is excluded.


And that was the man standing right in front called Fiore Angelo.


“I’m your student.”


He was the teacher who will be awakening Kim Jin-hyuk’s swordsmanship.
