Chapter 82 Strongest Sage, Inspecting


Next day .
I went to the academy to accompany Iris for her transfer exam .
This might seem too sudden, but this was the schedule we got when I asked for 『Someone as strong as possible』 as the examiner for the swordsmanship test .
By the way, according to the principal, among his acquaintances, I was the strongest one . . . But since it wasn't right for someone related to Iris to be her examiner, they appointed the next strongest one .

The reason why I asked for someone strong as the examiner is simple .
They'd have died if they were weak .
. . . . I'm also expecting Iris to net a higher score for defeating a strong guy though .

"Principal, I have some questions regarding the exam . "

After the exam's explanation, I talked to the principal while Iris was doing the written exam .

Even if these exams aren't hard, it's still unreasonable for Iris who has never assumed human form to suddenly take them on .

Thus, we did a little test at a safe place--
The result of that test was absolutely horrible .
Her damaged magic circuit as a dragon might have an effect on her mana control as a human .

As a result, there needs to be another thing to consult .


"Since all details about these exams have been set in the rules, they can't be changed right?"

"Yeah . If you give me some time, I might be able to do something about that by asking the king--"

Asking the king huh .
That's one option, but I'd like to let Iris enroll as soon as possible .
Well, for now, I'll ask the thing I need to ask .

"Does the rules state anything about defensive measures of the exam location--for example, protection from stray shots?"

"The rule doesn't cover that far, but we usually put several layers of barrier magic around the location as a protective wall . At least we did for the past several years . "

I see . It's not set in stone huh .
That means . . .

"Can that barrier be replaced with something else?"

"It's possible . But what are you changing it into?"

"Me . "

The only one who can protect the school from Iris's magic is me . . . or not exactly, but if I do it myself, there will be no need for some bothersome preparations .

" . . . So Mathias, you're going to replace the barrier?"

"It's just an insurance . "

If Iris does it well, I won't have to block her magic .
But there's a high chance of that not happening .

" . . . I got it . Let's do that . Can you deploy the same barrier we have?"

"No problem . "

Looks like the school will get out of this in one piece .

After a bit, Iris's swordsmanship test began .
Giving advices is prohibited, but watching is not .
Since Ruli and Alma had something to do today, I'm here with the principal only .

" . . . Huh? That examiner seems familiar . "

I asked the principal in low voice when I saw Iris's examiner .
Familiar, or rather--

"Yeah . He's your examiner, Knight Commander Gayle . "

I thought so .
With his strength, he should be relatively safe against Iris .
If beating him nets 120 point, then Iris should pass with this test .

"Swordsmanship test, begin!"

"Here I go!"

With the examiner's declaration, Iris readied her sword, ran to Gayle and swung it .
It's neither technical nor random, it's simply a swing . You can say that she's a beginner .
Gayle blocks that sword--


Not .

Gayle's sword couldn't block Iris's sword and he got pushed back .

Gayle regained his stance as he evaded the sword, and managed to take some distance away .
Iris's sword hit the ground just like that and created a small crater .

"What strength . . . . Where's that power coming from with that body . "

Gayle muttered while resetting his sword .
The sword in his hand is already half-bent .

" . . . Is that really a girl?"

"As you can see for yourself, she is a girl . "

I answered the principal's question .
Well, she's not a human girl though .

While we were having that conversation, Iris hit the knight commander's sword, flinging him to the wall and ending the exam .
Since he was blown away in a way that diminished the damage, and broke his fall, the knight commander seemed fine .

. . . . Thus Iris's swordsmanship test ended .
It's finally time for the magic test .
. . . . I think it's more like the school's disaster than an exam though .
