If they do this, they can be aware of each group’s location even when they are away so that’s quite a good plan .
Although that way Julius’ group can’t register each other but since his escort is never leaving his side, I guess it will be fine .
And Julius himself had registered the instructors so that he can communicate with the base .
This way, the ones remaining in the base will know about the exploring group’s whereabouts and can rest easy .
This Julius kid-although his aristocratic attitude can get very annoying, he is quite smart .
He has all the good points down and is making exactly the right decisions .
There might be a ‘brain’ in his group but he still deserves praise for implementing it .
This 3 might not just be your regular problem children .
I guess I will have to see it to the end .
A total of 25 battle type students departed in high spirits .
The ones remaining split into two groups to prepare dinner and secure a place to sleep .
The place we are currently at is an open grassland between hilly areas and is spacious enough for the ship to land .
Although the surrounding is covered with hills, on the other side of it are mountains and deserts .
If you head for the center, then you will be faced with mountains and if you head for the edge then you will find deserts .
And there, each of the rulers should be present . Or rather, because of them and their leaking aura, the terrain transformed into this abnormal environment .
On the other hand, there is a forest but as there’s also a ruler living there, it was connected to a jungle .
To be honest, as there are rulers on all four sides, it will be difficult for the search team .
There’s no doubt that it will be easier for the people staying back .
And as such, I am in the staying behind group .
Tia is supposed to be protecting the search groups from the shadow so I don’t have a role to play there .
Or rather, now that I am at human level, I would have trouble even with unique monsters, semi demon lord seed level is way out of the question .
To be more precise, if I get even a bit serious, my identity will be revealed and it would be game over .
And so, I will be among the non-combatants .
I want it to be clear that it’s definitely not like I want to relax .
Now then, about the work for the ones staying behind-
The job that looks most easy is setting up the tent for the equipments .
A very thoroughly prepared instructor had outdoor training camp equipments stored in his ‘space storage’ .
It might just be that he thought it would be more troublesome to put them in a storage but some things are better left unsaid .
After all, he’s all happy and what not from all the respect he’s getting from the students so I will just leave it as him having a careful personality .
Besides, the tent even has an insect repelling effect due to a simple magic circle . With space magic, the insides are also a bit more spacious so it’s perfect for situations like this .
There were 30 tents of which each can fit about 10 people and so we have more than enough space even if we make the tents gender-segregated .
The way to set it up is rather simple-you just need to break the magic seal on a flat surface and spread the tent . After that, you just need to put up all the sides .
However, I am not a student of any academy so I am not supposed to know about breaking the magic seal .
It’s actually quite simple but if I were to do it, I would completely be labelled out as a suspicious person .
And like this, I was inevitably put into the food supply group .
Looking at the other students put up the tents with a backward glance, we headed into the forest .
Beside me was Mondo-kun-the fat student from before .
Although two instructors were leading about 30 students, that alone would be very secure so a battle type student was included in each group .
We were also working with 5 members in a group, like Julius and the others .
The relief squad was in the middle with the four collecting squads protecting them from all four sides .
The relief squad also had registered each member of all groups so this arrangement was appropriate .
Instructors are not included in the groups so we had a total of 27 people .
Mondo-kun was also a battle type for what it matters so he was chosen as one of the escorts for people heading into the forest .
I don’t know all the students so I will just have to trust the instructors’ judgement on the personnel selection .
Well, Ciel-sensei isn’t saying anything either so it’s probably fine but…
“Ahh~ahh, this is the worst~ To be protected by Mondo, out of all . ”
The one who was whining beside was a girl named Marsha .
She was the same girl who was with him a while ago and it seems they are childhood friends .
Although she is complaining, she seems like she is having fun .
However, the same couldn’t be said about her friend .
“Oi, oi, I am here so you can rest easy . Well, sure, my results aren’t as good as the search group but I am still quite good in actual battles, you know?”
“Right~ Compared to Mondo, I guess George is better . ”
“Oi, what do you mean better?! Sure, I am in middle in the ranks but it hurts when you compare me with this low rank . ”
The George kid said .
And a red-haired girl nodded to that .
Apparently her name is Aina . She has freckles but is a cute girl .
George, Aina, Mondo and Marsha were my group mates .
