Day 5. The last day of my first week of school! It consisted of Reading, Practical Cla.s.ses or Adventure. Adventure… actually sounds fun. Back then, I hadn't had that much opportunity to embark on Adventure cla.s.ses. After all, Harmonia Academy and my previous self's school's educational system were different. Only the students of Basic Level 5 at my previous school were allowed to start their free adventure.
In addition, I heard that the adventure field's types also differed per school. Some schools even had the same adventure field, due to the shortage of it. The type of monsters inside were different, too. Back at my previous school, I believe the monsters weren't that vicious and strong. It was a school of n.o.bles that emphasized more on n.o.ble honor and things like that. Hunting and adventure were just means to show off. Some were quite serious about it, though.
By the way, adventure fields refer to special terrains imbued with special power, where there would be many "floors" or "sections" and where monsters would continuously sp.a.w.n. Experts believed that the fields were actually located at different dimensional s.p.a.ces than our worlds.
With that prior knowledge in my mind, I enthusiastically went to my seat and eagerly listened to Morgan-sensei's briefing.
He started off with the explanation of what the adventure cla.s.s is about—basically, we're allowed to roam the adventure fields to gain more experiences. Yup, he also explained about adventure fields. His explanation was more or less the same as my prior knowledge, so I was happy that I didn't have to update my knowledge!
"So, for now, you're still not allowed to partic.i.p.ate in adventure cla.s.ses. But next year, students who're deemed to be ready for adventure cla.s.ses will be allowed to explore the adventure fields—restricted to certain areas—and under your senior's monitoring."
"Eh?! We're going to form a group with seniors?!"
The students in my cla.s.s ignored Morgan-sensei's opening remarks about how we aren't allowed to partic.i.p.ate in adventure cla.s.ses for our first year—I guess the special children aren't special for nothing, as almost everyone seems to understand that it's a common sense for us to refrain from the adventure cla.s.ses for our first year. Instead, they were excited on Morgan-sensei's last sentence.
"That's right. It's been the custom here. You shall form a group of 4-10 people to enter the adventure field. You aren't allowed to enter on your own. And the rule dictates that during the [guardians.h.i.+p]—which refers to you and your seniors partnering, there should at least be 2 seniors in a team."
10 people max? That's quite a lot—but oh, if you're in deeper levels, I guess you'd need more heads to help?
The team composition has to have various types of people combined, like attackers, healers, defense managers, and so on, so I guess that's still doable.
"Teacher, how long is the guardians.h.i.+p period?"
In contrast to other lessons, everyone seems to be so lively and eager to ask questions.
"Naturally, another year. I will just give more details again next year. I think that even if I explain it here, you guys are going to ask me again next year."
Everyone awkwardly laughed at Morgan-sensei's remarks, since it most probably would turn out like that, indeed.
"That will be the details I'm giving you for now. Let's discuss other things later on."
"Sensei~! I want to clarify something!"
"What is it?"
"Can we still register to the adventurer's guild when we turn 10 years old? Does the school have any rule regarding this matter?"
"Yes, you can. But remember that you have to pa.s.s their test—"
Morgan-sensei was speechless at how that student bluntly screamed out of happiness. He could only give that child a slightly sharp glare so that he could be quiet again.
Speaking of which, apparently the schedule for Day 5 is the same for every year, special cla.s.s or not. So, it's also possible to form a group with regular students. However, unlike us, they'd be allowed to partic.i.p.ate at their third year.
"Adventure fields? You mean, the training grounds?" Carbuncle tilted her head.
"Training grounds?" I asked her back.
"From the concept that the little man—I mean, that the teacher explained, it seems very similar to what we dragons call as training grounds."
"Such things exist in your continent, too?!" My curiosity was tickled.
"Yup. Our continent is not that different from yours… with the exception of harsh weather, extreme temperature fluctuations, and many more interesting things."
Basically, just about everything was the "extreme" version of our land? In gaming world, the other races' living condition is on normal difficulty, and the dragons are on hard difficulty?
I really want to take a look at the continent of the dragons—the Dragon's Heritage someday. With the name of technology and magic, I'm sure the "extreme" things can be overcome!
…or do I really need to wait for my next reincarnation and wish to be reincarnated as a dragon in the Dragon's Heritage?
No, no, no! I take back my words, no, pretend I didn't say anything!! G.o.d, it was a joke, don't you pull your prank here and end my life again, or I will kill myself right away after I'm reincarnated again.
"Lyr, what is this adventurer's guild?" Carbuncle tilted her head.
"Eh? Ah, I don't think the dragons have it? It's basically a small scale organization or group of people who embark on an adventure or journey together—or accepting requests from other people and do them for the reward…?" I explained.
"Non-Draconis have such system? That's pretty cool. But reward, huh? …well, I was about to say that you non-Draconis are so petty, helping others due to rewards—but it feels more like a job, or a trade, or a barter of some sort?"
"Y-yeah… I'm not sure about your comparison, but that's the gist of it… Uhm, Carbuncle, I think we should talk more later… Morgan-sensei is glaring at us."
"Oops~!" Carbuncle casually stuck her tongue… M-morgan-sensei's sigh is so long!!
When I took a glance at Iris, she seemed like she wanted to say something, but since Morgan-sensei has sent the signal, "Be quiet!!!!"—I can't just start a conversation with her, right?
…Right, poor Iris… She was seated in the middle of me and Carbuncle who were talking just between ourselves back then… did she miss the chance to join our conversation because she was still listening to Morgan-sensei?
B-but that's a good thing, Iris!
Anyway, so we will just have [Reading] cla.s.s and [Practical] cla.s.s. In [Reading] cla.s.s, we are required to read the selected articles or books, and we also have to write a summary after we finish reading. This is a good way to enforce interest in reading and to widen one's knowledge—but that child over there—she picked a large book, put it so that it stood up on her desk, opened it and… put her head on the desk… though?
I decided to just… let it go! And then, just when I was immersing myself in the book I was reading, a loud thud was heard…
…The book fell on her head…
The surprised girl quickly stood up in a hurry and…
Ah, Morgan-sensei walked over to her…
Aside from that incident, nothing else particularly happened at [Reading] cla.s.s. During the break before we start [Practical] cla.s.s, it's time to… hype about it with my friends!!
"Luca, you look so calm, did you know of it all along?!" Kiri asked in a wonder. Even the timid Kiri was actually so hyped for the adventure cla.s.s.
"Well, yes. Father has told me about his past experience in this academy, too," Luca answered smugly.
But I can imagine him being hyped before we started our school and bombarded his father with many questions—thus, he ended up knowing more than the rest of us today and could keep his composure.
So, I purposely let out a teasing expression to show up, and I sent him the "I-know-what-you-did-last-summer" kind of a gaze.
Luca being Luca—he totally caught the implication of my expression and gaze, and it evolved into a small bickering among us.
From the corner of my eyes, I could tell how Kiri and Iris looked unsure on what they should be doing. Meanwhile, Carbuncle seemed like she was enjoying it—as if she was observing us as a way to comprehend human relations.h.i.+p…?
After our bickering ended…
"So, Iris… What are you going to do? The adventure cla.s.s is not mandatory, so we can just take the practical cla.s.s, but… I think you should at least experience it…?" I turned around at Iris with my concerned look.
"Yes, that's what I think, too! Uhm, actually… My craftsmans.h.i.+p teacher told us that we'll be able to study basic alchemy next year, so I'm going to practice it intently, so that I'll be able to join you guys and help you out during our third year!!" Iris said.
"Eh, Iris, you're interested in alchemy?" I was surprised. This is the first time I heard of it!
"Yes!" Iris firmly nodded before continuing, "I'd like to be an alchemist in the future!"
That moment, I want to give my thumbs up to her. So young, but she has already thought of what she wants to be in the future? Compared to her, I… well, does "wanting to live a peaceful and happy life" count as a good dream? Hahaha…
"Guardians.h.i.+p and forming a group in adventure cla.s.ses, huh? …I wish we'd be able to team up with Alt-nii, too. I wonder if it's possible…?" I suddenly wondered. Really, it's during time like this that I wish Alt-nii and I don't have the 3-year-gap.
"I heard that it's possible, but when they want to go into the deeper level beyond our abilities, we have to obediently separate," Luca answered.
At that time, I was so grateful that Luca's heart is as wide as the ocean!! I just teased him back then, but he still answered based on what he heard!!
Sorry, Luca! Actually, your getting hyped beforehand and asking your father about it—it's actually not bad!
"Really? Then, I'd have to ask him later!" I answered in my happiness.
Ah, really~. To think that my 13 years of prior knowledge would lose to a 6-year-old child's knowledge? …He has the cheat of being born into the royal family and a reliable source of information, though.
Besides, I don't have that much of experience in this matter. Back in my previous life, I also wasn't involved in any of the adventurer's guild… It'd be nice if we could try it, maybe…
