The world's strongest S-class adventurer, known as the Thunder Emperor, shows his power without restraint and becomes a warrior in the Academy of Magic - Chapter 2
“I’m home, Shelah.”
I took off my mask, take off my robe, and hang it on a chair.
A lock of silver hair pops out of my hood. The bangs in my eyes are depressing, and I shake my head lightly from side to side.
A beautiful woman with long blonde hair who was lying in bed in lingerie at the back of the room – Shera – hears my voice and comes over.
“Welcome home, Noah.”
Noah– that’s my real name.
Noah Akright. Van is an adventurer’s pseudonym. Why use a pseudonym and even wear a mask with magic on it when you are an adventurer: ……. It’s all due to the witch, Sheela Akright, who raised him.
Sheela is a mystery to me. She definitely has the power of witchcraft. But she doesn’t belong to the Adventurer’s Guild, much less a magical organization. We’ve known each other for nearly ten years, but as a matter of fact, I have no idea about the face Shera shows in front of anyone but me.
“How was it? S-class quests are.”
Her big breasts, the neckline of her waist, and her slender limbs.
It’s a good idea to have a good-looking face that will probably make 10 out of 10 people look at you if you go to the royal capital. It’s true that I’m getting used to seeing them, so I won’t be dawdling now, but my gaze is drawn to them even if I don’t want to be.
”– It was easy. It’s the defeat of the Red Dragon. I was able to transfer a little bit to Zidna, put a few lightning bolts into it and it died immediately. That wasn’t very formidable.”
”Haha, if you’re good at it Noah, you must be. After all, I trained him. Well, he’s just a monster after all. People who are stronger than such things are surprisingly common.”
As she says this, Shelah walks up to me and pulls me close, squeezing my body and pressing my face into her chest.
“Good, good, good job,”
“Let go of ……, Shelah. It’s depressing.”
“What? You used to be so happy to be so horny. Is it enough?”
“Not being happy …… I’m an adult, I’m a grown-up, I’m an S-grade, that’s enough.”
I lightly push Shelah away and she backpedals, oops!
Damn, Shelah has a tendency to treat me like a child.
It’s a bad habit of hugging her.
Sheila picked me up when I was a kid… when I was wandering in these woods. I’m sure the image of those days has stuck with me. He’s grown up enough now. ……
“S-class. Yes, you were S-class. Congratulations on your promotion, Noah.”
“Yeah. Well, Shelah’s task was accomplished. It’s taken me two years to become an adventurer, but here’s the thing……”
“No, no, no, it’s good. Most adventurers end up as B-grade adventurers for the rest of their lives, and even if luck or talent were on their side, they’d never make it past A-level. S-level is a big deal. You’ve only been at …… for less than two years, and you’re the youngest person ever to do it solo. And on top of that, you’re the youngest person. You should be proud of your performance. I’m sure the adventurer’s guild headquarters in the capital is talking about you right now.”
Then Shelah smiles and sneers.
Yes, I finally did it. Shelah told me I had a talent for magic. It was only a few days after Shelah had picked me up.
Since then, I’ve been given numerous challenges to become the strongest. And so, two years ago, the new assignment was to join the Adventurer’s Guild and become an S-class adventurer.
“I thought it would take a little longer, but ……”
“Ha, I’m like a magician. It took me two years.”
“…… Yeah. And it’s just perfect.”
“Just in time……?”
With that, Shelah tells her to wait a minute and walks into the back of the room and comes back with a piece of paper of some sort.
“Look at this, Noah.”
“This is …….”
It was an examination form for the prestigious magic academy in the royal capital.
”Whose is this?”
“Take a good look at the name column.”
I did as I was told and looked at the name column.
It was marked “Noah Akright” on it.
“…… what does that mean?”
That’s what I’m talking about.
“What is this all about ……?”
Despite my bewilderment, Shelah is smiling happily.
”Isn’t it like I’m enrolling in this academy?
As expected, I’m going to raise my voice too. That’s right… In other words, she wants me to enter the Academy of Magic. I’m not going to be able to get a good look at you.
“Next challenge. This is the end of the adventuring and empowering phase. Now, go and frolic in the Academy of Magic.”
”No, so I’m asking you why …… Why do you need to go to a witchcraft academy now? Why don’t you just continue your quest for a normal SS class?”
”There’s no need to rush the SS class, Noah can get there quickly anyway. We’re going to take a break from adventuring for a bit. The next step is to play against people. The adventurer’s guild can’t provide you with these things. There are quite a few magicians at the Academy of Magic. Especially here at the Regulus Institute of Magic in the capital. It’s the best school of magic in the continent. The elite of sorcerers gather here.”
“You’ve done this before in witchcraft school.”
Indeed, in previous quests in the Adventurer’s Guild, the opponents were mainly monsters.
Defeating stragglers that had stray monsters that had strayed beyond their habitat, or taking down endemic individuals that had killed too many people. Defeating S-class monsters like the Red Dragon ……. I’ve done more than I’d like to deal with monsters. I’m not going to be the only one, but I’m also going to be the strongest sorcerer in the world for Shelah’s sake.
I’m not sure if it’s a good idea for you to be a part of this. Perhaps it’s a way of life …… to live as a sorcerer. It’s not just adventurers, but also other professions that use magic. I’m sure you’ll be able to find a way to make it work. I’m sure you’ll find a lot of people who are knights in arms. If you think about it that way, it’s certainly not a bad assignment for Shelah to do …….
“I hope there is a …… witchcraft academy or a sorcerer who can fight me.”
“I doubt it. Maybe he’ll be there, maybe he won’t. That’s a mystery for you to find out when you get there. There will be pieces that will make you grow, or there will be pieces that will ruin you ……”
It’s not that I’m not interested in the witchcraft academy or …… versus people, it’s just that I’m not interested.
I’m not going to be able to say that I’m not going to be able to do that.
All the better. You’re right, I’m going to go to the Academy of Magic and demonstrate my abilities.
“How’s that? Do you take my assignment? Or have you gotten cold feet?”
“Ha, who the hell do you think I am, Shelah? –Of course, I do.”
“That’s my Noah.”
This is how I was going to take the entrance exam to the ………… Reglass School of Witchcraft and Wizardry in order to accomplish Shelah’s next task.
