3 Episode 3

 Just as I was about to reach the next town, there was a sudden commotion outside and the carriage stopped moving with a clatter.

 I got out of the carriage to see what was going on outside.

 The carriage was stuck on a road that ran through the forest.

 The first thing I saw was that the horses pulling the two-horse wagon were all frightened and about to stampede, and the guard was trying hard to calm them down.

 The next thing he saw was...

"d*mn it, ......! If you're coming, come on! I'm a full-fledged hero now! I'm a full-fledged hero! Two or three ogres don't matter!

 I'm not sure if this is a good idea or not, but it's a good idea.

 He must be a brave guard hired by the carriage.
 It is customary for coaches traveling outside the city to hire such guards to protect them from monsters.

 The escort boy is probably around 16 or 7 years old, judging from his appearance and appearance.
 He seems to have just graduated from the Academy of the Brave and is just starting out on his own.

 There are a variety of jobs available for heroes who have graduated from the Academy of Heroes.

 They can serve in the government, be hired by nobles as private soldiers, belong to the heroes' guild as freelance Demon King hunters, or become teachers at the Academy of the Brave.

 Escorting carriages is one of these jobs.

 However, if you are a good hero, you can get a more lucrative job, so I hear that many heroes who are not very strong yet are using it as a temporary job.

 And that's where the boy brave escort is looking.

 In the direction of the carriage, there was a monster that appeared to be blocking the way.

 An ogre.

 It was a humanoid monster with a huge, muscular body, so tall that it could have been fifty percent taller than an adult human male.
 Its skin is reddish bronze and its clothes are made of rags.

 It holds a huge club in its hand, and its attack power is enough to crush a human with a single blow.
 As it looks, it is a monster that boasts of its monstrous strength and vitality.

 It is not very agile, but it is not easy to deal with its stormy attacks, even with the power of a hero.

 Even so, if it's just one of them, it's within the range that even a novice hero can manage to deal with...

 Unfortunately, there are three ogres blocking the path of the carriage.

 The boy brave of the escort alone is too much to bear.

 You can find a lot of people who are looking for a great deal more than just a great deal more.

 I looked at him and sighed.

 Maybe it was inexperience, maybe it was lack of education.
 Either way, the response was inappropriate.

 The three ogres, drooling from their mouths, lumbered toward me.
 The distance between me and the brave boy escorting me is about twenty paces on the ogre's legs.

"Hey, boy.

 I walk up next to the brave boy guard and call out to him.

 The boy, who had been looking at the Ogre with a desperate expression, glanced at me and then returned his attention to the Ogre.

 Then, keeping his eyes forward, he replied.

You're one of the brave ones, aren't you? But you are a guest, right? Then take your time in the carriage. I'll take them down myself... Ouch!

 I slapped the boy on the back of the head before he could say anything else.

 ...... For a moment, I find myself wondering if I'm being called a violent teacher for doing this.

 I don't like this kind of brave people who take their own lives for granted. .......
 I'm sure you'll be able to figure out what's going on.

 In the event that you have any questions concerning where and how to use the site, you can contact us at the following address.

"What are you doing?

It's my line, what are you doing? You've graduated from the Academy of the Brave, haven't you?

I did! But that doesn't matter now!

It does. So the question is, what's the Ogre's monster level?

What? This is not the time to talk about...

Okay. What's the Ogre's monster level?

I forgot ....... So what?

 When I heard the boy's reply, my shoulders slumped.

 Really? .......
 The monster level of an ogre is within the scope of a first year exam.

 I'll tell the boy in disgust.

"The Ogre's monster level is six. If you forgot it, learn it now. Next, tell me your certified heroic level on this year's status exam.

"Huh? ......? I'm not sure what you're talking about. This is not the time to be talking about that!

I don't care. Look, the ogre's already over there.

Aaah! This year's status test gave me a certified heroic level of six! So what!

 Six levels.
 That's pretty much what I was expecting.

 I'm not sure if you're aware of this, but I'm sure you're aware of it.
 I'm not sure if this is a good idea or not.

 In this situation, I'll have to teach them the basics, but...

 As expected, the ogres are already very close.
 The boy is also worried about it and can't concentrate on my teaching.

 ...... d*mn it, I can't help it.

"Hey, kid.

So what? I'm sure you'll be happy to hear that.

 ...... Ah...
 You're no older than me!" Ah... I've been underestimated again because of my baby face.

 I'm not sure I'm cut out to be a teacher.
 I need some dignity. I want dignity.

I'm twenty-three years old. I'm thirty-three years old.

"What? ......? I'm not sure what to say. You're a teacher at a heroic academy?

It's your life that's at stake. I'm sure you'll understand.

 This is a great way to make sure you are getting the most out of your money.

 Their canine teeth bared in their mouths, drool spewing from their mouths, their eyes bloodshot as they came towards us.

"d*mn, they're here. ......! You're a teacher at the academy, so stay back!

 You're a teacher at the academy, so back off!" The boy hurriedly readied his sword and took a stance to intercept.

 I, on the other hand, focused my mind.
 The boy hurriedly readied his sword to intercept.

 And then, just before the ogre and the others reached us, I unleashed a spell.

 The spell I used was the [Fireball].

 If you're a brave person who's good at magic, you'll be able to use it when you're just starting out, it's an intermediate level range attack spell.

 I'm not sure if you've heard of it, but I'm sure you have.


 I'm not sure what to do, but I'd like to know what you think.

"What the hell is ......?

 The boy, who had hurriedly readied his sword to intercept the ogres, was stunned when he saw it.

 In the end, the blast ceased and the ogres appeared, their whole bodies burned and motionless.

 After confirming this, I smiled at the stunned boy next to me.

I'll teach him when I can. I'm a teacher.

Who the hell are you? ......

 The boy's eyes lit up with respect for me.

 Now it'll be easier to teach him.
 It's a good idea to show them what you can do.

What are you? As you said, I'm a simple teacher at the Academy for the Brave.

No, ......, but usually, teachers at the academy are just a bunch of mouth-breathers with no real combat experience. ......?

"Ah, .......

 I see, so that's your perception.

 It is true that there are many people who become teachers at the academy right after graduating from the academy without any real experience.

 I have been working as a freelance demon hunter for a while after graduating from the academy, so I have no problem with that.

 Well, I don't care about that.
 But for now...

"And now, boy, let's continue with the lesson from earlier. If your heroic level and your opponent's monster level are even, the rule is that you fight one-on-one. If you have to deal with two or more monsters, first consider how to avoid combat, and if that is not possible, find a situation where you can fight one-on-one...

 I'm slowly educating my escort, a young hero.

 The only time I'll be able to look after him will be during this journey.
 During that time, I'll have to make sure I teach him everything I can.
