Infinite Mage (Novel) Chapter 28


That bit was a plus for Amy. Not only were they dating, but they've also kissed, at least according to the rumor. So the boys who chased her around were in a state of panic.

“What are you gonna do about today? Aren't you going to go meet Shirone? Hm? Hmm?”

“Don't know. We both agreed to focus on studying for the time being.”

There was a hint of disappointment in Amy's tone.

'I know we're only fake dating, but even so, how can he be so indifferent?'

Her pride was hurt by Shirone's stone-cold attitude. It was no princess syndrome, but whenever Amy looked in the mirror, she herself thought her appearance was enough to turn heads. But Shirone seemed to have zero interest, seemingly because of his concentration on studies. Even if it was only a pretend relationship, they were definitely an “official couple” in the eyes of most.

'Shouldn't he be at least a little conscious?'

“I don't know and I don't care either. I have a pile of work to do. I don't have time to get distracted.”


“You're disappointed, aren't you? Well if you are, I wouldn't be surprised. I also think Shirone is being too harsh. How could he leave such a pretty girlfriend unattended? I'd stick together around all day if I were him. Oho! Maybe that part was what cracked the iron-hearted Amy's heart?


When she saw Amy's eyes burning red, Sharelle shook around her hand and released cold sweat.

“Haha… Okay, okay! I'll stop!

Amy let out her anger with a snort. In a sense, Shirone was well aware of the situation. If he was distracted by something he shouldn't be distracted by, it wouldn't be worth it for her to keep up their relationship, even if it did chase away the boys.

“Oh! Amy, isn't that Jake over there?”

Jake was coming down a hill. He had bandages all over his face and was carrying a large backpack on his shoulder.

The disciplinary committee had decided to put those part of Black Magician on probation for two years. With a condition that they ask for forgiveness from the students who dropped out, but anyone could tell there was an unusual leniency.

“Hey! Long time no see, Amy.”

Jake's face was bright, unfitting for someone who was essentially getting kicked out for two years.

“You still haven't left? Gosh, so clingy.”

“Kekeke! I've done so many bad things that there are a lot of places I need to pass by.”

“That doesn't suit you. Did you change? Hah, no way. How can a person's personality change so easily?”

“That's true. But there are people who trust a wastrel like me, so now I can't do anything bad anymore.”

It was known among students that Siena struggled with the committee to lower Jake's disciplinary penalty. If it weren't for her, Black Magician wouldn't have been able to avoid expulsion from the academy.

“By the way, what are you going to do now? Taking two years off will make you have to drop your classes.”

“I'll have to beg for forgiveness from the kids who dropped out. They probably won't forgive me, but I'm prepared. And in any case, won't something come to mind after I try and put everything back to how it was before?”

Amy didn't think it would be easy. Most of the kids who were tormented by Jake were first-class nobles and suffered from injuries that could not be healed, so the possibility of Jake getting beaten to death was not completely out of the question.

However, the one who knew this better than anyone else was Jake himself, and yet instead of being afraid, he was rather relaxed.

“I've got to go. You'll be graduating by the time I get back. I don't know when the opportunity will come, but when that time comes, I will do my best. Take care. I wish you the best with your relationship.”

As Jake turned around with a wave of his hand, Amy responded with an awkward smile. Even Jake, the person involved in the case, found it absurd when he thought back to how Amy was dating Shirone.

Despite what happened, seeing him being sent off in this shabby way left a bit of a bitter taste in Amy's mouth as a fellow student. She thought for a moment as she remembered something. She called out to Jake.

“Hey, Jake!”

He looked back.

“Two years will go by real quick! Don't give up!”

“Haha! Call me whenever you need my help. At the very least, I can help by lending you as much money as you need!”

“Two years… Yeah, it's probably nothing. It'll go by quick.”

Amy thought as she looked at Jake's figure growing smaller and smaller in the distance. He would not be able to go to school for at least two years. But was that really something to cry about? After all, if one didn't have the skills, one would rot in the same place for the rest of their life, anyways. That was the world of magic.
