While Adry-sama’s misunderstanding remained unresolved, the topic of conversation turned to the selective courses.
“Adry-sama, what else did you choose besides the Knight course?”
Adry-sama answered my question while counting on his fingers.
“Well, first of all, the Nobility course, then the advanced course in Monsterology, and if possible, I’m thinking of taking the Magic tool course, too.”
“Oh, you are thinking of taking the Magic tool course as well?”
“Yes, I decided after today’s visit.”
Eh, from that observation!?
“I saw a prototype that looked like a weapon! I thought, if I could make a weapon that suited me… wouldn’t that be the most powerful thing ever?”
Saying that, Adry-sama smiled.
… No, I don’t think so at all.
I think it would be much better to study under Uncle Galvano, the Dwarf, if you want a weapon.
I’m not going to tell you, though.
“Um… even though special class students have a lot of class exemptions, wouldn’t it be too much work to cram so much into a freshman year?”
“Don’t worry, I’m confident in my stamina!”
No, no, no. You can’t just push through by relying on your physical strength.
Some courses are very difficult because of the amount of assignments.
For example, the Nobility course.
Although I am exempted from this course, I choose it along with Mariel-chan, but the Spartan education of Teacher Retia, the teacher whom I asked to tutor me for the Nobility course at home, was dreadful.
Her “Dutiful Series” was the most traumatic experience I have ever had.
I had to do curtsey until I could get a passing grade, earnestly write with decorative letters, and… I don’t even want to remember.
If I was asked to do that now, I would never want to do it.
I somehow managed to get through it because I had experienced taking exams in my previous life, but what if it was full of assignments like that?
I heard that Teacher Retia was famous for her strictness, so I’m sure it wouldn’t be as bad as that…
Although, unlike the Ladies’ course, the Gentlemen’s course will be different, but I’m sure there will be a fair amount of assignments as well.
Even for the Knight course, there will be classroom lectures on strategy, manners befitting Knights, etc., and the practical skills will be physically demanding, so I wonder if he will have the energy left to go back to his dormitory and do a mountain of assignments…
I don’t care how good the students in the special class are, they are just ten year olds, so I don’t think they should push themselves too hard.
Sei, perhaps agreeing with me, put a stop to Adry-sama’s talk about what kind of weapon he wanted to make.
“Adry, I don’t think there is any point in trying to do this or that from the very beginning if you end halfway through. I think the most important thing is to know what you want to be in the future.”
“That’s right, I want to be a Knight.”
“Then, I will I ask you, do Knights make their own weapons?”
“No, weapons are made by blacksmiths and the magic tool craftsmen…”
“I think it’s great that you want to be able to do everything yourself, Adry. But rather than a person who focuses on many half-baked, I think a person who has mastered one path is much stronger.”
Ah~ I get it.
A jack of all trades may be skilled enough in many subjects, but they can’t compete with someone who has mastered that one thing so well that they can’t lose…
Mariel-chan also seemed to think so, as her head nodding motion was in sync with mine.
“Master… a path…”
“Yeah. To become a Knight, there will be a steep road along the way, and the road to become strong never ends. Only those who keep moving forward on that path will become stronger in mind and skill.”
Oh… those are some incredible words, Sei.
Martial arts are like that, aren’t they?
No, it is the same in any field, not just martial arts. That’s what it means to be a master in something.
“Sei… as I thought, you are amazing!”
Uoh!? Adry-sama was holding Sei’s hand again with his sparkling eyes..!
Hey, hey, Mariel-san? Stop letting sounds like “Fuyooh!?” escape from your lips and stop staring at the two of you while holding your mouth, okay?
“D, don’t say that…”
“No, I will! Sei Let’s work together to become Knights!”
Mariel-chan was staring at Sei’s hand that was being held by Adry-sama’s both hands, saying, “Screenshot… I want to… take a screenshot…!” and was beginning to lose her mind as she watched on with shaking and moistened eyes.
Byakko-sama, please do something about it instead of watching with a smirk on your face!?
Suzaku-sama, don’t just look on smilingly with the “My, oh my, ufufu.” face!
