nse you using your abilities?”

“Maybe I was looking out for you.”

I said that, but right after Kang Seung-tae’s answer, a new interface appeared in the corner of my vision.

[Talent: 【Enforcer】 is activated].

[1.
Enforcer – Those who deal with the organization’s enemies.
Increases physical abilities by 1.5x when fighting an opponent perceived as an enemy of the organization]

【Enforcer】, my trait that can only be activated when dealing with enemies of Corleone.

This would increase Kang Seung-tae’s physical ability as well, but I gathered my strength to stamp on his arm with all my might before he could accept the sudden increase in physical ability.

However, Kang Seung-tae skillfully keeps his center of gravity low, deflecting my attack.

“Okay…….Guess I’ll have to take this more seriously than I thought.”

……Monstrous inspiration.

Kang Seung-tae pushes away my wrist as if he’s succeeded in gauging his strength in a split second.
Still, it wasn’t enough to get a passing grade from him.

“You’re not interfering or using any other abilities?”

“I don’t think the branch chief arm-wrestled with the other kids in a normal way.”


“Hmm?”

“The ‘even-handedness’ you mentioned.
Isn’t it actually about synchronizing your own magic power with your opponent’s, not equalizing your physical abilities?”

Kang Seung-tae’s eyes flicker at my words.

“Isn’t that what your father told you?”

It was information I knew from the game, but I couldn’t tell him straight out, so I put on my best relaxed face and answered.

“I felt your magic flow into my body.
You’re circulating the magic in my body to interfere with my magic power to help me pave the way.”

“If what you say is true……I’m surprised, for it would take a mage of some caliber to realize that I had interfered with his magic.”

“It must be talent, because blood doesn’t lie.”

Kang Seung-tae smiles a bloodthirsty smile at my words.

“Ha! Now that you put it that way, I have nothing to say, so do you know how to best accept this gift?”

“Isn’t it to resist my branch chief with all my might?”

“If you know……that’s enough.
Go ahead, resist with all your might, haha!”

“I will.”

After answering Kang Seung-tae like that, I immediately showed him the reason why I didn’t stand up until the end just for this moment.

With the defeat of all those who went against him, I was the only one left.
This meant that I was the last representative of the student side.

From here on out, the other students will have no choice but to cheer me on since I am now pushing Kang Seung-tae more than anyone else.

This soon becomes their last hope and a clear indication of the fact that I am different from the other kids…….and it soon turns into respect.

[Talent:【Successor of the Underworld】Triggered]

【Successor to the Underworld】

[2.
Baby Boss – Your overall abilities increase slightly in proportion to the number of creatures that fear or respect you]

If both 【Enforcer】 and 【Successor to the Underworld】 are activated at the same time, my strength will be incomparably stronger than usual.

“Hmph……!”

With all my weight and strength, I gradually push against Kang Seung-tae’s arm and as his arm starts to be pushed away Kang Seung-tae’s eyes widen in panic at this unbelievable situation.

“Arrrrrrrr!”

With a thunderous cheer, he snatched my arm off……in an instant.

I lost……but it wasn’t all bad since I had accomplished my goal after all.

“Whoa.
That was dangerous, really dangerous.”

Wiping the sweat from his brow, Kang Seung-tae stood up and tapped me on the shoulder.


“Kkkkkk! You’ve really changed a lot, just like your father said.”

“……You’re right.”

Kang Seung-tae smiles broadly as I shake my wrist, which is numb from being nearly slammed into the desk.

“I’m surprised you’re not freaking out, too.
So, do you have any idea what’s happened to your body?”

Of course, I couldn’t help but notice as a new window opened before my eyes.

[An explosion of mana flows through your body]

[Your mana seems to be flowing more easily]

“I feel like I’m maneuvering my mana more smoothly.”

“Good to know! Well, the others have apparently only made subtle improvements, so this should be enough for the representative’s body.”

This is another ability that helped Kang Seung-tae rise to the position of Branch Leader.

[Mana Shower] was a skill that only he could do with his explosive mana and insane levels of mana control.

Apparently, he doesn’t use it often because of its deceptive power.

I knew that it was only used against the most talented heroes in the branch, but it wasn’t an exaggeration to say that I had gotten an unexpected gift.

“Now I’ve granted all of my friend requests but unfortunately none of you have beaten me, so I’ll have to give a lecture, hahahaha!”

At the mention of giving a lecture, the students begin to roar again but Kang Seung-tae puts his index finger to his lips.

“Quiet.”

The hall instantly falls silent as Kang Seung-tae speaks in a very cold tone, as if the ridiculousness of the whole thing was a joke.

“Now that we’re done with the brief event before the lecture, I’m going to start the lecture, and all the kids who came up front can go back to their seats.”

Kang Seung-tae, who had just changed from the image of a friendly uncle to that of a cold boss, stood in front of the whiteboard.

“You guys just saw it.
The difference between me and the others is overwhelming.
But each of the other kids tried to take me down in their own way, and……Eugene succeeded in sending chills down my spine.”

Kang Seung-tae begins his lecture by analogizing the brief arm wrestle to a battle between heroes and villains.

“But the villains you’ll meet in the future won’t treat you the way I do.
That means you’re going to have to deal with guys who laugh while slaughtering the civilians next to them instead of being cute.
And I’m going to talk about the mindset you need to have when dealing with them.”

In an instant, the mood in the convention hall changed.
As if the excitement of the previous session had been a lie, the atmosphere has cooled down, and the students look at Seung-Tae Kang with nervous eyes.

“Alright, let’s get started.”

What he said wasn’t that difficult, it was information and mindset that everyone knows.
But it’s because the speaker is Kang Seung-tae, not another hero every word that came out of his mouth looked and sounded genuine.

[Note: Your intelligence has improved!]

The increase in intelligence was an added bonus.
So, when I returned home from the third day of classes at the academy.

“Master, everything is ready for the hunt.”

Night had finally come.
