Infinite Mage (Novel) Chapter 31


Older instructors possessed looks of disapproval at the relentless debate. Nevertheless, the reason they remained silent was because the rank of the two that were arguing was higher. 

Siena and Thadd were both active as certified Grade 6 mages while only being in their mid-20s. Not to mention Ethella, who was also the pride of the Alpheas Magic Academy.

The argument showed no sign of abating. Ethella tried to intervene, but no side yielded.

Alpheas was just smiling. If you didn't have a passion to teach, it was impossible to fight like that. 

Thadd wanted the development of his alma mater, while Siena wanted the growth of her students. If one was an instructor, they would have to side with Siena, but it wasn't that they couldn't understand Thadd's side as well.

“I've heard both of your opinions well. I understand your positions, so let's stop and take a seat.”

As soon as Alpheas' words fell from his mouth, Siena and Thadd listened and stopped arguing like two obedient puppies. The only thing they had in common would be their respect for Alpheas.

“I find both sides' arguments and points to be valid. Ms. Siena's words are logical, but we're also instructors. Shouldn't we avoid prejudice and favoritism?”

“That's exactly what I'm saying, headmaster.”

Thadd laughed and Sina was expressionless… But Alpheas wasn't done. After carefully devising something, he revealed his idea with a big smile.

“That is why we should… How about it?”



A single official notice was pinned on the bulletin board of the Intermediate class building.

Dozens of students gathered in front of the bulletin board and were shocked at the contents of the official notice. 

This was the first time in the history of the Alpheas Magic Academy that a promotion was open to a whole class. In this case, Class 7.

The main gist of the notice was this.

We are providing an early promotion opportunity for all of Class 7. We will only pick one person who is eligible for promotion and the moment they pass the exam, they will be promoted to Class 5. As we fully acknowledge the students' concerns, this evaluation will be graded in terms of magic and not Spirit Zone.

The subject of evaluation is teleportation.

“T-Teleportation? I don't know how to do it. Can you do it?”

“No, of course I can't. It's an official Class 5 designated magic.”

“I've done it once. But it was so scary that I don't dare to try again.”

“You stupid! It's easy if you follow the original formula. The problem is that it's just so difficult to apply.”

The noisy children suddenly died down. Shirone was walking their way. Arriving at the bulletin board whilst under many different stares, he read the official notice. This was the conclusion reached by the instructors.


Shirone engraved the word and concept in his mind.



The so-called Class 7 bullying incident interested the upperclassmen. In particular, because the target was Shirone, there was a lot of talk due to that fact.

“Oh my God! Something like that happened? Amy, did you know?”

Amy, who only checked the bulletin board at the end of the day, read the official notice and frowned. When Sharelle informed her of the specifics of the rumors, her knuckles turned white.

'You were being bullied? Is it because of me too?'

According to Sharelle, some of her classmates don't even make eye contact when looking at Shirone. Moreover, there were some who even antagonized Amy during integrated classes.

“What do you think? I mean, they are kids from Class 7. Actually, I went through something similar, but since I was promoted quickly, nothing happened.”

“ Bullying and Isolation are not things that can be excused just because one is young. If we start thinking that it's okay, then shouldn't we be doing the same things? After all, we're also young. 

“We're in Class 4. Magic requires maturity and a lot of mental and emotional control, so age can't matter. 

Amy didn't want to argue about this or that. In fact, she couldn't think of anything because her mind was a mess. Amy was just angry that Shirone was being tormented and was suffering.

“Stupid! Why didn't he tell me?”

'If he had been honest and discussed it with me, we could have come up with a better solution!'

She was certain they would have. Popularity aside, she was still at the top of Class 4. And Shirone was 'dating' her. Thinking about the possible things Shirone had to go through angered Amy. She was angry in fact that one could mistake her for the victim.

“I need to go see Shirone.”

“That's no problem, but what are you going to do?”
