Infinite Mage (Novel) Chapter 34


Teleportation training grounds.

One after another, students arrived at the peak that was 1,000 meters above sea level. Since there were no classes, students from other classes were also there.

After today, a student from Class 7 was going to be promoted to Class 5. 

Considering that it usually took an average of two years to pass one class, in the worst-case scenario, it was possible for a student who was 4 years younger than the average to be attending a class meant for older students. 

“Wow! So this is the Bridge That Cannot Be Crossed! It's my first time up here.”

The participating students were amazed by the enormous size of the training ground. Instructors and students were also gathered on the opposite peak, 700 meters away.

“But why is it called the Bridge That Cannot Be Crossed? Where even is the bridge?”

“Idiot. It's over there.”

A long iron bar connected the two peaks. As the length increased, the tension dropped. The fact that the bar stretched out 700 meters indicated that it was an alchemical material.

A few students walked to the cliff and looked down. Contrary to what the instructors had told them, there were no safety devices, let alone anything that looked similar to it.

“What the hell? Won't you die if you fall?”

Thadd, who leaped over the peak with Spatial Warp, spoke to them.

“You don't have to worry. There are safety devices.”

The students were not reassured. In fact, they heard that in another academy, a student had actually died during teleportation practice.

“How does it activate?”

“If you fall 100 meters, the Air Net Magic gets automatically activated. It was designed to be invisible so you guys push yourselves not to fall.”

“What if it malfunctions?”

“Hahaha! I can't say that it's impossible. But so far, nothing like that has happened before.”

“So there's no guarantee that we'll be absolutely safe?”

“Well, so to speak, yes.”

The students paled. Then Thadd turned around with a smug look. Even if the safety device broke, there would be no accident. That's why all the classes were canceled and why all the instructors were told to gather here.

However, even if an accident were to occur, there was not much anyone could do. The magic academy was a special-purpose academy supported by the kingdom, so it was part of the rule not to blame anyone for an accident, even if someone was injured or killed during class. Students were already aware of this fact before applying for the Intermediate class.

“It's been a long time since I've been here. Amy, let's go that way.”

Sharelle grabbed Amy's hand and dragged her up the hill. Amy looked like she didn't want to go, but she eventually followed as Sharelle led her.

“I said I don't want to see it. It's a Class 7 exam! The results are obvious.”

“Oh, look at this girl! What are you saying when your boyfriend is about to proudly go up to Class 5? How will you ever score some points with your boyfriend if you don't do it on a day like this?”

“Tsk! What's the point of cheering? Whether I cheer or not, those who are bound to fail will fail, and those that are bound to pass will pass.”

Amy was pretending to be unconcerned, but she was quite bothered inside. How much did his mastery of teleportation go up? Could he even teleport?

Practical training was the best way to grasp the feel of teleportation. However, since the process was so painful, the advice given by experienced professionals was to learn the tips and tricks first.

Amy, on the other hand, was literally the type of person who learned by tackling with her body. Of course, it was not too painful for her since she had Schema to rely on.

'But it's different for Shirone. He's not one to give up. I hope he's in good shape.'

Class 7 had some remarkable talents. Depending on the situation, it would not be too unusual if Shirone failed.

“Huh? I don't think Shirone is here yet.”

When Sharelle, who was looking through the peak with a telescope, said that, Amy snatched the telescope away. As she said, among the 20 students standing on the cliff, Shirone was not one of them.

“What? What happened?”

“You don't think he failed, right?”

She couldn't guarantee it. She also believed in him because he was Shirone, but in all honesty, teleportation was not a magic that could be easily learned on one's lonesome.

'You idiot… Where the hell are you? What in the world are you doing?'
