Infinite Mage (Novel) Chapter 23


Amy's head was spinning. She was sure he was lying. 

'There's no way a commoner could enter as a guest of a noble family.'

That was the conclusion she had reached because she did not know about Rian's knight's oath.

“You didn't tell anyone that you know me, did you?”

“I didn't. It's not even a pleasant memory, anyways.”

Hearing Shirone say that, she knew he was going to stay a huge ticking time bomb. The thought of going to the same academy with such a bomb did not sit well with her.

Amy came up with an idea. She raised her head arrogantly and said.

“You are from Class 7, right? I'm from Class 4.”

“I know.”

“You will be my underling from today onwards.”

“What? An underling?”

“I know your weakness. You'd probably get kicked out of the academy if I expose it. So be my underling from now on. You have to listen to everything I say.”

Shirone made a confused face after hearing her threat.

“Why should I? Whether you hold my weakness or not, you're still my upperclassman. So if you were to tell me to do something, shouldn't I obey?”

“How naive. Do you think I'll make it that easy? I'm gonna make sure to make you cry, so look forward to it.”

In Amy's head, even if she failed to get him kicked out, she could at least make sure Shirone followed her. If she locked him in sight and prodded at his self-esteem, she would be able to find out his hidden intentions.

“What are you going to make me do?”

“After class, come running with bread and coffee, 'kay? If you spill even a drop, I'll make you go back to base one.”

Although Shirone was someone with a good personality, this time he was angry. Bread? Did she think he came to this academy just to deliver some bread?

“Hohoho! Alright, starting from tomorrow, wait for me in front of the First Library. I'll end it quickly if you do whatever I tell you to do competently.”

Shirone was so disconcerted. Was she really the Amy who was called the goddess of Alpheas?

“Oh right. And…”

Turning around, Amy looked back at Shirone. The air around her began to spin as her hand pierced up. At the same time, Shirone's body rose into the sky.


Tornado magic controlled atmospheric pressure to create wind. It was a spell that Shirone managed to barely cast as a child, but for the current Amy, casting it was child's play.

Shirone floundered in the air. Perhaps because he was facing a crisis, the ground looked much clearer. Even the fallen leaves scattered on the ground were vivid.

Even that smirking face of Amy.

'I'll die if I fall.'

As soon as that thought passed his mind, Amy jumped up and grabbed the back of his collar. As his collar started to tighten around his neck, he could not breathe. When he came back to his senses, he was lying somewhere on the ground.

“Cough! Cough!”

Following that magic, she demonstrated the power of Schema, and she dusted off her hand, seemingly satisfied. Amy stopped her Schema training after the age of 12, but nevertheless, her movement was beyond normal human ability.

“ Consider that payback. See you tomorrow. Hohoho!”

Amy laughed cheerfully and walked away. Shirone was furious, he had never met such a hateful girl before.

In his mind, she was still the thug from many years ago. Shirone, who tried to diminish his anger, lowered his head and exited the forest. The thought of meeting her from tomorrow onward made him plunge into despair.

The five o'clock bell rang for the last period.

The basic physics class was over. Shirone, who packed his bag and left the classroom, sighed deeply. He had been running around as Amy's bread shuttle for the past 10 days.

He bought bread and coffee from the school shop. It was a price that could not compare to the donations provided by the Ogent family, but the problem didn't lie within the money, but with his feelings. And that was what Amy was aiming for.

“Why is she doing this to me? She was the first to make a mistake.”

Trying not to spill the coffee required a lot of concentration. Yeah, let's just think this is some kind of training. He tried to adjust his walk so that the coffee did not shake.

“As if! How long do I have to endure this!”

Shirone himself thought he was in a miserable state.

“Oh my! There he goes, the pure and innocent boy.”

“He must be heading to her to confess again. I'm telling you, he has some kind of illness.”

The schoolgirls whispered amongst each other, pointing to Shirone who was passing by. This was his biggest problem.

Already, a rumor had spread around the academy that Shirone had a one-sided crush on Amy. And the more that kind of rumor spread, the colder the students treated Shirone.

Shirone's fantasy about women was completely shattered by Amy's tenacity in resolving her resentment 6 years ago.

“Hey! Over there, your prince.”

“What do you mean 'prince?' He's just a servant.”

Amy and Sharelle were waiting for Shirone together in front of the library. The area around them was crowded with students who were curious to see the extraordinary sight.

As Shirone walked up the stairs, the schoolgirls who were watching laughed and clapped. Shirone's face flushed like a red beet.

Sharelle smiled pitifully and said.

“But I kind of feel sorry for him. He's going this far, why not just accept him?”

“What? What nonsense are you spouting? Why would I accept him?”

“Oh stop pretending to be shy. For someone who doesn't glimpse at a guy, you sure do take all the bread and coffee from Shirone. There are even rumors about the goddess of Alpheas finally getting a partner.”

It was ridiculous. This was a strategy to provoke Shirone, but it seemed like things were flowing unexpectedly.

Actually, she was only thinking of keeping it going for a week. But somehow, Shirone never expressed any displeasure and had regularly brought her the food.

'Urk! At this point, I'll end up associated with a really strange rumor. I should stop now.'
