“Hmm . is that so? Strong monsters will probably come out so be sure to be on guard . ”
Since they had no problems today, I just gave a simple advice .
I don’t think there will be any but I would like to avoid any casualties caused from a lack of awareness .
“Haha, you are worrying for us, aren’t you?”
“There’s no need for your worry! There’s no way Magnus-sama will be taken off by lowly monsters!”
The girl who is always beside Magnus raged .
“Yes, yes . Well, either way, don’t let your guard down . ”
I stood up as I said that .
“Yea, I know . Rosary, calm down . ”
“I am calm!”
With that behind me, I left to tidy up .
That night .
Feeling the presence of a sleeping magic activate, I opened my eyes .
As this body is really close to a human’s body, it is possible for me to imitate sleeping by thinning out my consciousness but since I have no need for sleep, sleeping magic doesn’t work on me .
However, the target for the magic wasn’t me—it was the other female students sleeping in my tent .
Marsha, Aina and two others .
I was put in their tent . I told them I was fine with the boys’ tent but was rejected by everyone .
“But, I am a guy—”
“Even if you’re a guy . ”
They told me they were worried more about me than themselves .
As I was also being persuaded by George and Mondo who didn’t believe me at all, I decided to bend since it was getting bothersome .
Or rather, since I am used to being cared by Shuna or Shion, this much doesn’t really disturb me .
And as such, I was in the same tent as the girls but-
This doesn’t seem to be a sneak visit .
“Satoru-dono, are you there?’
I could hear a small voice calling for me .
I was thinking of going to them myself but it seems they came contacting me first .
“Yeah, let’s go . ”
I answered to the call and quietly exited the tent .
The one who greeted me by kneeling as if it was only normal was William Loaz, the elder magic instructor of Ingracia Synthesis Academy .
“Of course . I realized with one glance . However, Souei-sama said to keep it a secret in his message so…”
From what he explained while we were changing locations, it seems this elder William is one of Souei’s spies .
Even though I say spy, he is actually a subordinate of a subordinate of Souka .
It seems all of the spies lurking in each of the countries started moving as I gave the order to Souei to investigate the academies .
Even though I say that, these spies normally look for the country’s movements and so small stuff like investigating the academies aren’t included in their job .
They are people who deal with things on a much greater scale .
They normally gather circumstantial evidence of interior corruption or expose injustice . And it seems there were also people who were in the academies to investigate .
William was also one of them .
“I thought my heart would stop when I received the direct Thought Transmission from Souei-sama . ”
He said, probably remembering of that time, as he trembled a bit .
That is true .
I understand his feeling—being directly contacted by someone who is like above the clouds .
It even seems he is more afraid of Souei than me .
No, that’s probably it .
Souei is—no, Souei and everyone in the information department are quite strict on their subordinates…
It seems they don’t have the expression ‘in the worst case scenario’ in their dictionary .
Failure=death — they are even feared by other sections .
I was lead to the tent made for the instructors .
As I entered, the instructors knelt down .
Brown, the guy who lost to Laplace at first, Pury, the doctor and Blum, the plump, old man .
There was also this other guy, called Heinrich, who seemed like an intelligent researcher . He is the guy who identified the mana storm covering the island .
Shaking in his boots was the instructor who gave me salt before, Instructor A—or as I came to know later, Peter-sensei .
“Oh? If it isn’t Peter-sensei . ”
“Gyaaahh—! P-please forgive me!”
What a wonderful dogeza .
He went from kneeling to a jumping dogeza .
Really, this is my first seeing it… a jumping dogeza .
“I won’t do anything . ”
“R-really?! Then, you will forgive me?”
I wondered what was there to forgive? —but his reactions are too suspicious .
“Before I decide on that, tell me what you did . ”
I can’t think that he would be this scared just from treating me like that .
That’s what I thought when asking him but…
One after another came out, his events of neglect .
It seems even for the tents, it was just him choosing to not be bothered to tidying it up .
I was exasperated, listening to his trivial sins confessions .
“Got it . 3 months of salary cut . ”
“Ha, eh? Hahaa!!”
“However, don’t slack off from now on, alright?”
“Then it’s fine . ”
This is too stupid so I let Peter off the hook with a salary cut .
And then .
They introduced themselves formally once again .
All the instructors here are all under the supervision of the information department .
In other words, they are enthusiastic fellows who haven’t been corrupted .
All the three Tempest’s instructors in the island were here .
Actually, Peter here is also a battle type instructor from Tempest .
I am glad that there were no corrupted instructors in my home, Tempest .
Although I don’t know what is happening at the actual academy, since Souei should be entering there now . Either way, there doesn’t seem to be any here so that’s good .
And from the Ingracia Synthesis Academy were William and Blum .
Heinrich was the only one from NNU Magic and Science Investigation Academy .
These people were the collaborators .
Either way, I can trust these 6 .
I decided to drag these 6 in this and started a discussion on what to do next .
