Chapter 61: Return

{A little change of plans, master. I will be helping you learn magic now…}   

Holy shit!!! No, not you again!   

{I am sorry to hear that you are not much pleased to see me, master. But there is nothing to worry about. I will be clearing all your misunderstanding after a few more minutes.}  

What!? After a few more minutes!? Why not now, huh!? You need time to think of a plan!? Maybe, this time on how to make me rape Rebecca!?  

{No, master. It’s simply because something is going on in your class and I would prefer it if you to see through it first.}  

You—  

“Hello, everyone.”  

Suddenly, a sweet voice enters my ears and the black miasma in front of my eyes vanishes. Standing on the teacher’s podium is no one other than Princess Leena, looking at all of it with a slight smile on her face.   

I look around myself and to my surprise, find that all the new students have settled themselves down on their respective seats already.   

“Due to lack of time, I couldn’t get a chance to address the school earlier in the auditorium, but I would like to at least say something to my new classmates.   

“First of all, I am delighted to be in this class with you all. As someone coming from another country and being of a different race, I can understand their being some differences in view and opinion among us but, I hope that we all can get along and become friends with each other.  

“And yes, I must inform you that I have been given the responsibility of monitoring all the magic practices which will happen in this class together with your class teacher. And I am really looking forward to it!  

“As the one being overlooking this class, my goal is to have all the 20 human selections from this class at the end of the month and I hope that you all will work hard with me to reach this goal. I would also like to request the Vampire and Beastkin students to train hard and get selected in the top 20 of their races as well.  

“Now, we will start with our first lesson of magic as soon as your class teacher arrives. Thank you very much for listening to me,” Leena finishes with a little bow and moves to her seat in the front row.   

Fuck… This is one of the rare incidences when I regret being a backbencher.  

But well, it seems like princess Leena is really passionate about having us all selected for the tournament. And she wants to work hard with as well. I was not expecting the sole princess of the Dark Elf kingdom to have such a nice nature.  

Anyway, let’s get back to that asshole system.  

Hey, black syste—  

“Psss… Jacob!”   

Ryan, who is sitting beside me suddenly calls me out.   

“What!?” I ask exasperatedly.   

“I cannot believe this weird one is in our class. Those clothes are so suspicious…” he says in a fearful tone.   

What the fuck!?   

“See, first of all, she looks really beautiful in those clothes, okay? And how can you call her weird!? A busty babe like her can never be weird! I recommend you look at the mirror if you want to see a weird person!” I say angrily.   

“Who the fuck do you think I am talking about?” Ryan asks, confused.   

“Princess Leena, of course,” I answer.   

“Eh? No, idiot! I was talking about that,” Ryan says while pointing forward.   

What the…   

Sitting on the farthest seat of the middle row is a cloaked and hooded figure.   

“See? Blue cloak. It is the one I saw in the auditorium before…” Ryan says.   

Damn… That really is suspicious. Especially after what happened in the morning.  

“Hey, Leo, you seeing that person?” I ask Leo who is sitting on my other side.   

No reply comes.   

“Leo?” I ask again while tapping his shoulder.   

Again, no reply.   

I look at his face.   

Shit…   

His eyes are hollow and are looking forward as if staring into the depths of an endless void of darkness. There is also a really scary smile on his face which is characteristic of a man who has lost all the hope in his life.   

N-Never mind. I don’t think I should say anything to him right now. This guy needs some alone time…   

Slowly, I turn on my seat to face forward again.   

Suddenly, black miasma erupts in front of my eyes.   

{Master.}  

So, you are back, huh? Ready to clear all my “misunderstandings”?   

{Of course. It is my duty to do so, master. And I am well aware of the reasons that are making you infuriated with me.}  

Oh, at least you are aware. I should be happy about that, right?  

Asshole…   

{No, you shouldn’t be happy about it, master. But please, I request you to hear me out.}  

Hmph… fine.  

{Thank you, master. I know that the main reason for your anger is the incident with Miss Layla. So, I will start from there.}  

{First of all, I would like to admit some of my wrongdoings. It is correct that my motive was for Miss Layla and your relation to end completely. And it is also true that I manipulated master’s mind to follow through this motive—}  

You bastard! I knew you messed up with me! You really are the fucking worst!   

{Please, master. Let me explain myself. I had my own reasons to do so.}  

Yeah, why not? Give me your fucking reasons.  

{Master, as I have already said when I first talked to you. My goal is simple. I want to increase your lifespan as much as I can while also making you really powerful.}  

{But it is not possible if you tie yourself down to a single woman, master. I would prefer you to sleep with numerous women for fun rather than getting into a serious monogamous relationship and settle down. It might sound tempting to many but this kind of relationship will only result in premature death for you.}  

{For this reason, I tried to make Miss Layla hate you and hoped that you will drop the idea of pursuing her. But well, master is master. And master is always way ahead of me.}  

{After I was gone, not only did you conquered Miss Layla, but you also made her agree for polygamy which is the best possible scenario of all. After this incident, I really regretted not believing in you more, master. I should have left all the important things to you…}  

Hmph… Even for a second if I believe that your intentions were good, why didn’t you just tell me these things earlier?  

There was no need for taking things to the extreme!   

{As I said, master, I regret my actions. I believed that you wouldn’t be able to muster the strength to leave someone so dear to you, even if it costs you your life. But well, as we saw, I was clearly in the wrong. You protected your relationship and your life, both.}  

{But still, master. As a sign of my loyalty, I wish to correct all my mistakes. I will start by telling you about another thing I have lied to you about.}  

Another lie!?   

{Yes, master. It’s about the mission section in your system. I told you that I have no control when these missions appear and what tasks they ask you to perform. But that’s not true…}  

What!?   

{Yes, while I don’t have full control over them, I can give these missions a general direction and also decide when they appear.}  

The fuck…  

So, you planned all the things that day beforehand?   

{Yes, master. I did. And I apologize for that again. No, instead of apologizing, I will prove to you that I only have your best interests in mind through my future actions. In fact, my new goals for you are set and ready to be achieved, master.}  

New goals!? I don’t like the sound of that…  

{The thing that should be highly prioritized right now is having the system glitch fixed. Fortunately, this can be achieved by doing missions and I will be providing many of them to you in the single months’ time we have.}  

{Next, I request you to focus on doing the level specific methods and earning points through them, so that we can buy the skills as fast as possible and become stronger. Especially that level 5 skill. It will surely be really useful for us.}  

{And finally, master, I want you to learn magic as much as you can so that we can win the mixed race magical tournament. Of course, I will be helping you with everything so, there is nothing to worry.}  

Wait, wait, wait. What the fuck are you saying!?   

Win the tournament!? That’s impossible for a noob like me. In fact, any human…   

{It is not impossible, master. At least not for you. Actually, I have a very simple, yet effective plan on how we are going to achieve not only this feat but all the other goals as well. Though I will need your cooperation, master. Are you willing to let me prove myself?}  

…… Fine, tell me.

  1. Sigh.
    I just hope that Jacob doesnt let the black system lead him by the nose.
    So far a lot of things it said now sound sincere and tempting.
    But I’ll be on full alert for anything it asks or point out.

    Also that hooded person.
    Obviously a girl.
    Is weird as fuck.
    Finally Leo…. dude has some attention seeking issues, like we get it, you want to brag about GF, but dude, just text your buddies!

  2. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. I am not going to fall for any of the tricks that that black system tries to full. I hope Jacob is at least half as smart as I am……

    By the way, since the black system was the one that screwed the system up why doesn’t it just fix it by unscrewing all the things it screwed into it?

    🤬THANK YOU FOR THE CHAPTER 🤬

  3. It’s been on my mind a while, but I’m wondering if the pink system (original system) is his own ego/id/deep subconscious that’s been filled with the magic of systems since it seems to be so crude and simple minded. It’s definitely a male personality, which makes me wonder if maybe the black system here is a female one seeing as it’s a lot more complex and devious and autonomous and acts a lot more submissive. As the story goes along I wonder if we’ll find out that one of the princesses or someone we haven’t met yet IS his system in real life.

    Be nice if the author would explain more about systems and the inner workings of them, because I find it really interesting that as far as we know Jacob is the only one that has a system that actually talks to him and is sentient and autonomous (despite the fact that we know he got a fucked up system in the beginning)
