Regressed Extras Become Geniuses - Chapter 6
It was due to an idea that formulated in my head when I saw a normal target in front of me.
“Wow. It’s so funny.”
“This is driving me crazy.”
“What did I just see?”
In short, it was a disaster caused by greed. I forced myself to use mana to listen to the top 10, and my body eventually ran out. “Is it true that you lost your magic after making that little magic ball?”
“Wow. How did you get in with that skill?”
“Who is that?”
The audience wouldn’t stop laughing at me. Meanwhile, I was going crazy laughing at myself, too. What a shame in front of freshmen.
“Look at your face turning red.”
“It’s embarrassing. I feel sorry for you.”
The words of sympathy that I sometimes heard hurt even more. I wanted to hide if I had the chance to.
“……Ha.” I tried to earn some points by reaching the top of the list with this test, but ended up failing completely.
“He is the last in the school because he didn’t even hit the target.”
What do you mean I was last? I wasn’t last in my whole school!
[He achieved the achievement of “Clown’s Talent”]
[He gets 5,000 points as a reward]
[232 people remembered your face.]
[You get 1,000 points as a reward.]
[The character ‘Lee Seo-joon’ is interested in you.]
[You get 1,000 points as a reward.]
[4 main characters pay attention to you.]
[You get 3,000 points as a reward.]
……What was this?
I could suddenly see a steady stream of messages. I was greatly embarrassed by the unexpected situation. Looking at them roughly, they were all messages related to achievement and reputation systems.
It definitely looked like a lot. How many points were there in total? 5000, 6000, 7000……
I earned as much as 10,000 points at once. Even if he was in the top 10, he would have earned only 5,000 points for his achievements, which was almost double the number.
……Wasn’t this rather a good thing?
No, wasn’t this much better than being in the top ranks? I didn’t aim for it, but rather a good situation was created. This was amazing.
“What? Why is that senior laughing all of a sudden?”
“He must be out of his mind.”
I couldn’t hear other people’s sarcastic comments now. I had gotten a lot of points, because nothing was more important to me than that.
[Kim Seon-woo’s test is over]
“Please go down to the waiting room.”
After the test, I came down from the test table at the teacher’s words. When I returned to the waiting room, the students began snapping at me. “Hey, what did you just do?
“Did you run out of power?”
“Wow, congratulations on being last.”
“It’s my turn next, and I’m a little relieved thanks to you.”
“Thank you, really.”
“But weren’t you Ganghwagye?”
“Why did you switch to the expression system when you don’t seem to have any talent?”
I ignored them and went back to my seat. When I sat down, Park In-hwan, who was sitting in front of me, turned around and smiled at me, and then turned forward again. Phew.
It was a little quiet now. In a different sense, this phenomenon may occur frequently for the time being because it had made a big impression. Due to this, I knew I had to be prepared.
However, I still felt puzzled. I didn’t think I’d get this many points as the last one. “Well, you earned a lot of points, so it’s definitely a benefit.”
There was still time left until the end of the test, and I had just earned points. Let’s do some eye shopping.
I was the only one who can see the benefits of outsiders anyway. As soon as I tried to enter the point store, I felt a presence next to me. When I turned my head, Yoo A-ra was looking at me with a subtle gaze. What’s wrong with her?
“……That thing from before.” Yoo A-ra was purposefully trailing off at the end of her sentence. It was quite different from her usual self. What was wrong with her?
“When I took the test earlier. Did you use compression implementation?”
Oh, I asked why, but was it because of that? It wasn’t wrong, so I nodded for now. “Oh, that’s right.”
“How did you do that?”
“I compress my horsepower when I implement it.”
I knew I sounded a little insincere. She frowned. “No, I’m not asking because I don’t know that.” There was frustration in her voice.
“What are you curious about? Tell me so I can understand.”
“How much did you practice compression implementation?”
How much did you practice? About three years? However, it took some time for me to answer honestly. For me, who was 18 years old now, I was 15 years old three years ago. And in this worldview, the first time one would feel mana would be between the ages of 13 and 14. Common sense told me that a 15-year-old would not practice compression implementation.
In short, I was not good enough to lose my power. When I couldn’t answer willingly, Yoo A-ra looked into my eyes. “Why aren’t you answering?”
“Uh…… I can’t think of it.”
At this, Yoo A-ra’s fine eyebrows wrinkled as I glossed over her words. “What?”
“……About three years ago?”
“Three years? Three years? When I was 15?”
Hmm. Yoo A-ra appeared to be lost in thought. And as if he felt something strange, he tilted his head. “Wait, three years?”
“Come to think of it, it’s like two years, not three.”
“.…Are you playing with me?” She demanded in a ridiculous tone.
“Come to think of it, it’s been two years..”
“…Hmm. Really? Two years is pretty fast. When I saw it, you used it skillfully.”
I felt a strange resentment in my voice muttering to myself. I guessed the unique competitiveness of Yoo A-ra was triggered by the way I used compression implementation. She must have felt competitive because a student of the same age was able to use a technology she couldn’t use. “You’re pretty good. I don’t think it was a big deal last year.”
“…Is that a compliment?’
“Yes. It’s a compliment. But why is it cooked? I saw earlier that Manaryang looked terrible. Isn’t it too much for you?”
“……But didn’t you tell me not to talk to you yesterday?”
“I told you not to talk to me, I didn’t tell you not to answer.”
* * *
After all the schedules, I returned to the dormitory and fell down to the bed. I felt heavy all over, probably due to my mana discharge. I already knew that my body lacked mana, but today’s test realized that I lacked more than I thought. I never imagined that magic would disappear due to lack of mana during the test.
Anyway, I got a point, so let’s find out what to buy.
[Use the unique characteristic “Benefits of outsiders”]
[Enters the point store]
What is there to buy? No, more than that, what I needed now……. The agony was not long. I immediately opened the search box.
[Use search function.]
[Add ‘item’ to classification.]
[Add ‘item’ to item classification.]
━━ ▶[item] Fairy King’s Earring (S)
▶[item] Mana Ring (A)
▶[item] Fairy Bracelet (C)
▶[item] Necklace (D)
▶ [item] Wristpiece……
Recovery was as important as the size of physical strength and the size of magic power. No matter how wide the mana barrel was, if the recovery speed was slow, it would simply be the same outcome. In addition, the faster the recovery, the more training time you can perform, so recovery is a must, not an option. The recovery series was more efficient in terms of items than in terms of ordinary characteristics. And it was even better if you could wear it lightly like jewelry. I skimmed through and chose the most visible ‘Returner’s Watch’.
━━[Returner’s watch (B)]
Classification: Item description: The watch used by the returnee. There is a special power in it. [Sustaining Effect]
▶ Increases clock’s physical strength and mana regeneration speed by 200%. Increases strength and horsepower by 2.
Price: 30,000 ━━
“This is good.” I had both lack of stamina and mana recovery. It raised it by as much as 200%. In addition, it was a bonus to increase your physical strength and magic power by two. It was a pretty good item because it was durable and luxurious. One regrettable thing was that the price was 30,000 points, so it could not be purchased immediately. But I had 11,700 points now, so if I worked hard for a few weeks, I think I could collect them quickly.
“First, add it to your shopping cart.”
[The Returner’s Watch (B) has been added to your shopping cart]
Then let’s find something else to add. It was time to look for another item like that.
[300 people remembered your face]
[You get 1,000 points as a reward]
Suddenly, a message came to mind that more people remember me.
“What is it?”
….…Oh, this is that. Someone was talking about me somewhere. I knew it because I had been through something similar to this in my previous life.
[350 people remembered your face]
[You get 1,000 points as a reward]
……Huh? A message similar to the one just now reappeared. The number increased by 50 in a short time. How could it increase by 50?
[400 people remembered your face] [You get 2,000 points as a reward]
“……What is it?”
Obviously, it was not normal speed. Even 400 students were more than the entire school. There can’t be more people who know me at such a fast pace. Then suddenly, a hypothesis came to mind. “…No way.” I took out my smart student notebook.
From there, I immediately accessed the school community, “The Forest of the Great Wise.”
━━ <Daehyeonja’s Forest Anonymous Free Bulletin> +
[Who posted the last place video for the second grade of the open test today? ]
[He became a stuffed animal]
[Kim Seon-woo, a junior, was originally from Ganghwa.]
[It’s already spread on other sites. So funny]
[Isn’t this a problem?]
[How did he get in?]
[Another community is making a fuss]
[I heard the school has fallen]
[Shouldn’t we seriously investigate the corruption of admission?]
The school bulletin board was full of stories about me. “I wondered why the points went up…….”
It was then…
Ring! [“Bronze Star” achieved achievements]
[5000 points as a reward]
[1,000 people remembered you]
