35 Episode 35

 A short time later.
 The Royal City forces led by Cyrus were on their way back.

 However, as they were leaving the riverbank, Silas turned around and said to me in a deliberate tone.

In the event that you have any questions regarding where and how to use the internet, you can call us at the web site.

...... Yes, that's right.

 I'll tell you what.

 It's a good idea to take a look at a few of the things you can do to make sure you're getting the most out of your trip.
 To be honest, I've been enjoying my time here so much that I'd forgotten all about it.

 The match with Cyrus in the tournament to determine the strongest new hero, through his student.
 Now that I think about it, it sounds like he was using Rio and the other three for his own benefit...

 But now, it's a better excuse.
 It would give Rio and the others a chance to have another run-in with Jake and the others.

 Of the heroes around the same age as Rio and the others, those three - Adolf the Stiff Sword, Dorothy the Queen, and Jake the Wise Wolf - are probably the strongest in the country. They are probably the strongest in this country.

 And those three will be graduating from the Academy of Heroes this year.

 You can participate in the tournament to determine the strongest new heroes regardless of how long you have been at the Academy of Heroes, but you cannot participate after you graduate from the Academy of Heroes.

 You'll be able to let Rio and the others fight against them, but if you miss the next tournament for the strongest new heroes, you don't know if there will be another one.

 While I'm thinking about this, Silas is rambling on and on.

"Mr. Brett, those kids seem to be pretty good, but ...... you can see from today's results. Letting them compete will only embarrass them and mark them for defeat once again. I'm sure you'll be able to understand why I've been so impressed with your work.


So, Dr. Brett, while I understand your frustration at not being recognized for your accomplishments,......, why don't you just give up for good?

 Well, well, well. You can say what you want.

 I'm sure Cyrus was the one who wanted me to play on those terms in the first place.
 I wonder if he's just saying that today's events have made him feel better, and he's done with it.

 With that in mind, I was about to speak my mind, but then...

 I was about to say something, but then... one of my students, who was standing beside me, spoke up first.

"My brother is not like that!

That's right! You are the one who saved us from being abandoned by everyone, without any reckoning!

"...... Well, in terms of whether he's the ideal teacher or not, he's probably a little too pedophile... ...... At least he is five thousand trillion times better teacher than you. The fact that you can only look at it as ...... an achievement or something just shows how despicable you are.

 When Maifa pointed at Cyrus, Cyrus said, "Gnnu ......," and his face turned red and boiled.
 Maybe he didn't expect the kids to talk back.

 However, I feel that I'm a bit overly glorified among the three of them, and I'd like to tell them that I'm a bit of a snob about it. ...... But I'm a bit touched, doctor.

 I'm going to follow in the footsteps of the three of you and say to Silas.

"Don't worry, Mr. Cyrus. I will raise them to be the world's strongest heroes. One year from now, ...... or eleven months from now, you can look forward to it. By that time, even the three of you will have surpassed them by a long shot.

 And I'm the one who's going to make a big deal out of it.

 To be honest, I don't have any experience in raising monsters like Rio and the others, so I won't know how far they'll grow in just eleven months until I try.

 And I'm sure Jake and the three of them will be even stronger than they are now in eleven months.
 They're in a growth spurt.

 But still...

 I still wanted to believe in Rio and the others.
 If a teacher doesn't believe in the potential of his students, they'll never grow.

 But on the other hand, the three strongest students in the capital all smiled ferociously when they heard my words.

"Adolf the Stiff Sword and Dorothy the Queen giggled, saying things like, "Wow, that's exciting.

 The one who opened his mouth to me was Jake, the Wise Wolf.

You're a funny guy, Dr. Brett. ...... More powerful than us? The world's strongest? ...... Are you serious about that?

"Yeah, I'm serious. You guys are great, but I'm really in love with these three right now.

 Jake's shoulders shook as he laughed.

"C'mon ...... c'mon ......! That's funny, Dr. Brett, that's funny. Let's do this. The loser of that decisive battle gets to do whatever the winner says for a day. I can't wait to lay waste to them screaming. I'll give them a good beating in my dungeon. Isn't that right?

 Jake said, licking his tongue.

 But I couldn't help but make a face at that.
 Jake's lack of morals hadn't changed since I'd been teaching in King's Landing.

 And no matter how much he said he believed in his students, there was no way he could make such an absurd promise.
 So I was about to say no, but...

 But then Silas interrupted me.

"That's a great idea, Jake. I agree with you. It's a once-a-year festival. I agree with you. It's a once-a-year festival. Let's make it stronger and more exciting.

"Wait a minute, Mr. Cyrus! No matter how much you say that...

 Alma raised her voice in protest from the side.
 But Cyrus is unconcerned.

It's a good idea, Mr. Alma. It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're going to be doing. In the event that you have any kind of questions regarding where and how to use the internet, you can call us at the web site.

 Cyrus scowled at Rio, Iris, and Maifa.

 You can find a lot of people who have been in the business for a long time, but you can find a lot of people who have been in the business for a long time.

 Either way, it was a very clear rant, which is rare for Silas.

 It's very unpleasant to listen to, but it's a good thing he let it go.

"Mr. Cyrus ......, are you serious?

 On the other hand, Alma's eyes were fixed on Cyrus.
 It seems that she has finally lost her patience.

 Cyrus saw this and drew back in an amused manner.

I'm not sure what to say. ...... But Dr. Alma, even if you're just a child, you can't afford to be less than polite. They need to know firsthand what happens when they lash out at someone in my position. Isn't that right? And even more so when it's an adult like you. Unlike Brett, you're a smart girl, don't you know that?

"......, I see. I understand.

 Alma closed her eyes and had nothing more to say.

 I don't know what Alma is thinking.
 I don't know what she's thinking, but I can tell she's pretty angry.

 He's scary when he's angry. .......
 You never know what he might do.

 I say back to Cyrus.

"Mr. Cyrus, I can't accept your offer anyway. As a teacher, I can't accept such an unethical promise.

"Oh, ......? I'm sure you'll be pleased to know that I'm not the only one who's a fan of your work. If it's unethical, why not just let Mr. Brett's students win and obey the moral commands?

"Even so, sir. I'm a teacher and I don't want my students involved in that kind of nasty gambling.

...... Oh dear. I'm sure you're not the only one who has a big mouth, but you're really not very confident. If you are a coward and a liar on top of being a violent teacher, there is no medicine for you. With a teacher like that, it's no wonder his students are helpless.

 Silas shrugged his shoulders, and the students of King's Landing burst into laughter.

 Eventually, the twenty or so people led by Silas finally left, using words of ridicule and contempt for us.

 A typhoon has passed.
 I breathed a sigh of relief and said to my three students.

I say to my three students, "......, I'm sorry you had to go through all that weird stuff today.

"No, bro. I'm totally fine with it.

I'm totally fine with that stuff, too. I didn't want to shoot them all to death right now.

I don't want to shoot them all right now. ...... Brother, I want you to teach me how to burn all my enemies with the flames of purgatory.

 There were a couple of children who said some disturbing things, but I let them pass.

 Then I saw a figure from the Royal City rushing towards me.
 It was Alma.

 Alma came running up to me and asked.

"Huh, huh. ...... You know, Dr. Britt. I'm sure you've heard of it.

 Oh, you're talking about that.
 I've already told Alma what it's for.

"Oh, perfect. I didn't think I'd be able to get that much out of it either, but I'll give credit to my bad-mouthing student.

 You'll be able to find a lot more than just a few things to do.

 I had recorded my conversation with Silas, hoping to find something to make him squeal, but the recording was much better than I expected.

 I wondered if I could use this to somehow beat him to a pulp...

 Then Alma smiles and extends her hand.

If it's okay with you, Brett, you can leave it to me.

Do you have any idea what you're doing?

Well... It's going to be a little tough, but I'm ready for it. ...... I'm going to kill that raccoon no matter what it takes. I'll never forgive him.

"Oh, yeah?

 I gave Alma the magic recorder.
 I guess I'd better leave this to Alma.

 Alma took it and smiled thinly.
 I'm scared.

 Finally, Alma turned to Maifa.

"You must be Maifa. I didn't get a chance to say hi until later, but it's nice to meet you.

...... Nice to meet you too, your brother's old lady.

 They shook hands tightly.
 They shake hands firmly and look at each other.

 I don't know what it is, but I felt something hot, like a scene where two sworn enemies who have been fighting for a long time met.

 And Maifa, as I've said many times before, you're not the same woman you used to be.
 Alma and I have never been in a relationship.
 We're just former coworkers who got along.

 And then Alma looked not only at Maifa, but also at Rio and Iris, and moaned something like, "Ugh.

I'm not sure what to say, but I'm going to say it. I'm not sure what to say. It's not just Brett who's going to get hit,......, it's more than just a strong opponent,.......

 When I heard those words, I happily took Alma's hand.

You know... You're cute, aren't you? I was right, wasn't I?

"Oh, I'm sorry, Dr. Brett, shut up.

 I don't know what happened, but he cut me off.
 It's unreasonable. .......

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

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

...... I agree. I'm not sure what to do with it, but I'm sure it'll be fine.

 And again, they shook hands firmly.
 In addition, Rio and Iris also put their hands on it.

 I was the only one standing there, out of the mosquito net.

 Dad was lonely, sigh.
