C1: To the Capital of the Empire (1)


This is the novel I’ll translate since I’ve caught up with Rogue Lord raws.

I got a fake job at the academy it a korean fantasy novel and the schedule will be 3 ch/week(Monday, Wednesday, Friday)+sponsored ch(if anyone decides to support the novel).
Happy reading!

When most parents dream of their children’s future jobs, they would recommend higher-level jobs such as doctors or judges since all jobs that end in the letter ‘sa’ are well-recognized.
Or at least a civil servant called a stable iron rice bowl.
No parent wants their children to go down a difficult and difficult path.

However, in my case it was a little different.

“Son.
You become a shaman.”

“Yes?”

It was the words my mother told me when my father passed away early and I was growing up together with my ferocious little sister.

Although my family wasn’t very lean or poor, I still wanted to earn money by studying hard and becoming a doctor, a scientist or a developer.

However, what my mother recommended to me, who had meticulously crafted such a scientific route, was not a liberal arts route, nor even an artistic or physical education, but a path on a completely different level.

What should I say about this Theology major?

“Uh, what?”

“You didn’t hear me well, so I’ll say it again.
You have to become a shaman.”

“I don’t like it.”

My answer was adamant.

I’m not going to be a shaman.
Why all of a sudden in the first place?

In response to my bold answer, my mother raised her eyebrows once, and spoke in a strong tone.

“You have the qualities of a shaman.
All kinds of spirits are watching over you.
There is no other way for you than a shaman.”

Hearing that, I was stunned.
Do you have such talent? Beyond the absurdity, I just didn’t think about it.

From then on, my mother mostly said things that shouldn’t be said to her son, such as that I have unique qualities, that I am destined to be harmed if I don’t become a shaman and do not receive divine guidance.

What did I reply back then?

“Never, I won’t.”

“You will get hurt one day.
They are all worried about you.”

“If it’s for me, you should support me on the way I go!”

I remember saying so firmly and locked up in my room.

To be honest, it just made me sad and angry.
You can’t make a child who has properly designed his life since middle school to give up everything and become a shaman.

At that point, I studied even harder with a sense of repulsion.

My mother constantly bothered me and forced me to do religious things, and she taught me all kinds of bizarre knowledge such as poetry, magic, and witchcraft.
But I didn’t give up.
The more I did it, the more I acquired all kinds of rational knowledge to make my head stronger.

When more than 10 years passed like that, and as an adult, I finally settled down as a member of society but I died in a car accident.

‘It was really absurd.’

Was this what my mother said about getting hurt? And what was even more surprising was what happened after that.

‘I’m alive.’

To be precise, I died once, but it would be correct to say that I was born anew.

Does the afterlife exist? I thought everything my mother said was a lie, but it was all the truth.
Through the experience of death, I felt deeply that human beings do not fully realize what they have not experienced until they experience it.

What am I doing now?

“Open the textbook.
Continuing from last time, I will teach you how to draw a magic circle.”

“I am a teacher at the Magic Academy.”

……How did this happen?

* * *

A mechanical engineering locomotive emitting pure white steam arrived at the station.
The sound of compressed steam spewing out as iron reverberated.

The passengers waiting at the station got on the train one by one, and watching the scene, I took a deep breath before boarding the train.
It felt like my body was becoming clearer as the fresh air seeped into my lungs.

The sky was clear without clouds, and in the cold air of winter that was just coming to an end, I could even feel a pleasant refreshing feeling.

The departure time of the train to the Exilion Empire was short.

I raised my hand and lightly brushed my face.
A strange sense of alienation felt between the gloved hand and the skin.

‘The mask is firmly attached.’

I had to hide my identity, so it was unavoidable.

I got on the train at a natural pace so as not to cause suspicion.

“I will check the ticket.”

As I got on the train, the conductor spoke to me.

I took the ticket out of the pocket of the frock coat I was wearing and handed it over.

“It has been confirmed.
Mr.
Gerard.
Have a nice trip.”

After receiving a courtesy greeting from the conductor, I responded with a light nod of my head.

When I checked the ticket that was handed over to me, there was a number 403 written on it.
In other words, it was the 3rd room of the 4th wagon

The hallway was narrow but long enough for only one person to walk through, and there were large gaps in the door on one side.
The magic engineering train I was on was not called a luxury train for nothing, so all the seats in the long corridor were divided into rooms.

401.

402.

403.

‘Here it is.’

After checking the nameplate, I opened the door and entered.
The moment I opened the door, I could smell the old wood.

The inside wasn’t that fancy, but it had everything.
The soft seats are divided on the left and right and the storage space where luggage can be put.
And even a signal bell installed so passengers can call the staff if they need anything.

‘Not bad.’

I didn’t have a heavy luggage bag, so I moved my body and sat down lightly.
Even the seats were soft because it was a luxurious train.

As I looked out the window, the vast landscape of the northern mountains caught my eye.
The peaks of the soaring steep mountain range are covered with pure white snow, like giants wearing white cone hats.
The train will soon pass through the crevices of that mountain range.

‘Now that I’m here, I can relax.’

My name is Gerard.
I was once an ordinary member of society living in Korea.
Of course, it was my previous life, and I died in a car accident.

After that I woke up in the present world, a mysterious world where magic and science coexist, completely different from Earth.
Here I was starting a new second life.

‘I’m on the train for the Empir
