Infinite Mage (Novel) Chapter 54


“Return our laboratory? Why all of a sudden?”

Nade's shoulder curved inwards as he asked.

The corners of Siena's mouth curved up.

“The management team reviewed documents and found out that you operated the group without meeting the required number of members this semester. The academy has already cut off the subsidy, so I'd appreciate it if you clean things up within a month.”

“Wait a minute! We have Shirone now! 3 members is the minimum requirement for a research group to be recognized.”

“But what did you guys do? What activities did you participate in? If you want to save your research group, you have to produce some kind of research accomplishment or results within a month, which is the due date. Of course, I don't know what kind of research you can do in the field of the supernatural.”

“It's not mandatory for a research group to do a presentation. And we're not the only research groups, there are many other ones like us too!”

“This one's a special case. Since your research group is located inside Estas, there are a lot of inconveniences in operation, that's one thing. Second thing, the Supernatural Psychic Science Reserach Group in particular has made no achievement except for earning notoriety. The one-month time was only given to you because Ms. Ethella requested it. You should be grateful.”

Shirone was totally dumbfounded.

He had just entered the research group, only for it to soon be disbanded.

“But if you guys are really desperate, there is one way to save the research group.”

Nade asked with no hesitation.

“What's that? What do we need to do?”

“Withdraw Shirone from the research group. Then I'll overlook this group at least until next semester.”


As expected, Nade blew up.

“No way! It's not like we forced him to join, we three are friends who always stick together in the academy. Why are you trying to tear us apart?”

Yiruki added to what Nade said.

“If it's because I miss class, don't worry teacher. We all are masters when it comes to studying, it is just that we have our own methods of doing so.” 

Shirone couldn't sit still and just listen.

“I feel the same. I know this research group is notorious, along with the fact that Yiruki and Nade do not diligently attend class. However, even these two pour in an absurd amount of effort into their fields of study. They're not wasting their time. So please, be lenient.”

Nade held on to a string of hope knowing that Siena particularly treasured Shirone. 

However, Siena's mind was set.

“I'm not changing my mind. Above all, Shirone, this is a decision made for you.”

“A decision made for me? I thought I was working hard.”

“Shirone, what have you been going through lately?”

Shirone's heart sank while Nade and Yiruki looked anywhere else but at them.

Siena knew from their reaction.

As expected, he had told his friends about everything.

“You guys are really…”

Siena sighed

“Especially you, Yiruki. You know that Shirone is in danger of facing Overflow, so why didn't you tell the instructor?”

It was Shirone's first time hearing that term.

“Yiruki, what is Overflow?”

“It's just… It's not a big deal. It's a phenomenon that happens to geniuses at young ages. I experienced it when I was eight.”

Siena was not satisfied with his explanation.

“If you go into Overflow for a long period of time, your mind may collapse. I heard about the Immortal Function from Ms. Ethella. If we miss the timing, you will fall into a state where recovery is impossible.”


Shirone thought.

Even now, the nightmares persisted every night, and he still suffered from the Mourning Sensation. He was worried he would go crazy at some point which made Siena's explanation credible.

Shirone asked Yiruki again.

“H-How was it? For you?”
