Fake Professor, Misunderstood As Strong

On one fateful day, Jareth Blaze died an extremely horrible death. But fate has some other plans for him; he got transmigrated into the body of a weak third-rate villain in a role-playing game. He thought it would be difficult to survive as a villain with this weak and arrogant body, but for some reason everyone misunderstood him. They thought of him as a strong person and feared him. 'What are you looking at me with fear for!? aren't you the protagonist of this world!?' (No harem here!) [WSA entry 2024] My Discord server link: https://discord.com/invite/m87MTRraFD

Frighten others without even knowing it...

As night fell, Jareth and Shin messaged in the group chat to leave the dungeon. (This world's technology is advanced enough to have smartphones…)

All the students left the dungeon one by one.

Although none were able to reach the boss room of the dungeon, all of the students still had bright smiles on their faces.

After all, they got to see such a great battle today, they already have enough inspiration to advance further.

Ignoring the excited looks of the students who were slowly boarding the carriage one by one, Shin said to Jareth in a doubtful tone.

"I think that Cyclops must have eaten the dungeon core after killing the main boss monster of this dungeon… from the mana detection, I can sense there is no 'dungeon core' in this dungeon…" (Shin)

"The core likely got destroyed when you evaporated that Cyclops… this dungeon will disappear in a few days now I guess…" (Shin)

"It could be possible…" (Jareth)

Jareth nodded his head at Shin's words.

"Moreover, the information gathering team made a fatal mistake this time, they didn't properly scout the dungeon, and this dungeon is obviously not a place for newbies to wander around…" (Shin)

"A Cyclops was dwelling here so close to the city… and the academy was also attacked just the other day by wyvern that seemingly appeared out of nowhere…all of this is just coincidental to be unrelated…" (Shin)

"I could be the work of the same organization that carried out the first attack… we need to report this to the principal when we get back…" (Shin)

"Indeed…" (Jareth)

Jareth already knew from the start that this was not a low-grade dungeon and the information team had made a huge blunder.

But the reason why he didn't say it out loud was because he wanted to get involved in this event.

He knew that he could get 'CP' by eliminating the Cyclops himself and feigning ignorance to the fact that he already knew about everything from the beginning.

'The mission was successful in the end anyway, so it's not a big deal… there were no casualties either…' (Jareth)

The reason why Jareth was so confident that he would win, was because he had the attack enhancement card.

'If not for that attack enhancement card, I would have rather made some random excuse to abort this mission… I hope I can get one or two more of those cards from the lottery this time…' (Jareth)

 'Although there aren't going to be any major events in a short amount of time, it's always good to put some safety measures in place…' (Jareth)

The 'Wyvern' attack was the main event that Jareth had to survive and this 'Cyclops' event was more or less forced on him by the principal so it was unexpected.

But next, the protagonist will be busy in his carefree harem creating a slow life for a while, so there will not be any major events that involve strong people.

'During this time period, I can focus on becoming stronger myself… after all attack enhancement cards are temporary measures… I can't continue to rely on this fake strength for my whole life…' (Jareth)

'And the first step to my self-improvement is this 'Unique card'…' (Jareth)

Jareth smirked and laughed in his mind as he looked at the card resting in his inventory.

The card had a golden cover and it radiated golden light from it.

'This thing is a rare treasure…' (Jareth)

Just when Jareth was busy staring at his inventory screen in a daze, Shin suddenly called out to him from afar making him come back to his senses.

"How long are you going to stand there? All the students have already boarded the carriage!" (Shin)

After saying that in a loud voice, Shin also entered the carriage.

Jareth shook his head and decided to deal with this card later. He also boarded the carriage.

After Jareth boarded the carriage, the gate closed and it flew away at quite a fast speed.

*step**step*

A man wearing a pitch-black cloak appeared at the place where Jareth stood just a while ago.

Although his face was covered with a black mask, his eyes were carrying a great shock in them.

 "H-he noticed my presence!?"

The man who obviously looked like an assassin, was extremely shocked by Jareth at this moment.

'Just now he stared at me with such cold eyes… those were the eyes of a cold-blooded murderer!'

The assassin misunderstood Jareth's gesture of staring at his inventory.

The system panel of Jareth is invisible to others, so from the assassin's perspective, Jareth was looking right into his eyes and staring at him with a cold look in his eyes.

'W-when did he notice my presence I wonder? Did he know that I was following them from the start?'

Indeed the assassin is a grade-2 individual himself and is a secret subordinate of the principal himself.

He works for the principal and was sent by him to keep an eye on the students.

(You really thought the principal would leave the students in the hands of two guys who bicker with each other endlessly? If even one of the students got injured, the principal's reputation would be tarnished…)

The assassin had no bad intentions for the students, but he was ordered to not interfere with the situation as long as it didn't become fatal, that's why he didn't show up until the end.

He was going to appear when Shin was in trouble, but then Jareth came and killed off the Cyclops in one go so he didn't show up at all.

'Good thing I was keeping my killing intent in check… phew~ I could have died today…'

The assassin felt a chill run down his spine thinking about how Jareth gave him a death stare just now.

He saw Jareth kill that Cyclops in one go and being stared down by such a person is like a predator looking at its prey.

'If I had shown the tiniest bit of killing intent, he would have killed right then and there… moreover, he must have stared at me just now to warn me from coming near the students…'

From the assassin's point of view, Jareth likely doesn't know that he is an ally, because the principal didn't tell him about it.

'It's good that I didn't mess up the mission…I got a proper recording, that's already good enough…'

Yes, the assassin recorded everything from the start to the end with a hidden camera.

(The principal asked him to make a recording of how Shin and Jareth will handle this mission… the principal knew about the Cyclops beforehand…)

Hotel 'Outer Core', Parking area.

Unaware of the assassin's presence and all the background schemes going on.

Jareth returned with the students to the hotel, the massive carriage landed in the designated parking area and all the students got to stay at the hotel one more night to rest.

Smiles hung over the faces of the children as they got to experience living in this luxury hotel for one more night.

Jareth actually was going to make the students rush back to the university, but Shin said that it was okay to delay a bit and Jareth had to abandon his idea as all the students were in Shin's favor.

'I can't wait to go back and enjoy the rewards of this mission, it's gonna be epic!' (Jareth)

Jareth didn't want to use the lottery system and the 'Unique card' in this hotel.

The room given to him didn't have a training area suitable for a mage, so he couldn't risk it.

If something went wrong and he caused damage to the hotel building, it would cause unnecessary trouble.

Although the university will be the one paying for the damage, Jareth didn't want to get stared at by that 'principal' so he just chose the safer option.

Author's Notes.

Yo! It's your beloved author here! Things are getting mysterious and exciting let's go!!

Question of the day.

Who would you rather be stared down at by?

1. Jareth (It will feel like a predator is looking at you…)

2. The principal. (It will feel like he can see through your 'existence' and everything instantly… It's a very unpleasant feeling…)

3. Shin (It will feel like a gentle-natured person is staring at your incompetent self with benevolence…)
