Infinite Mage (Novel) Chapter 68


Shirone knew that so-called experts who frequented such places would end up losing everything, even their underwear. Of course, with Iruki's Savant Syndrome, no one would be able to win when comes to calculating the probability, but there is a reason why people call it gambling. Probability was just probability, and to win in gambling, one needed the temperament of a gambler who could sense victory. Shirone could vividly imagine Iruki winning money little by little only to lose it all at once.

"I won't go. You two go. I won't do anything like gambling."

"You don't have to gamble. Pretty girls are said to pour drinks and give shoulder massages. Are you really not going?"

Hearing that made Shirone even less inclined to go.

"Ah, sorry. I'm really too tired. I need to keep sleeping. Have fun."

As soon as the word sorry came out of Shirone's mouth, they couldn't change his mind. After all, Shirone was the most exhausted while preparing for the presentation. Nade and Iruki were also lacking sleep, but their work was divided between physical labor and intellectual labor.

On the other hand, Shirone, who had to raise the level of photon output, had to undergo intense training that consumed both physical and mental energy for a month. Moreover, at the last minute, he had entered the realm of infinity and poured out his mental power, so it was natural that he was completely exhausted.

"Alright, got it. Get some rest. Anyway, we'll be back, so just remember that."

"Yeah. Win a lot and come back. Buy me something delicious."

"Hahaha! Don't worry! When you wake up, we'll be magically rich."

Hearing the sound of the door closing, Shirone buried his face in the bed again.

‘They're rich anyway, but why making such a fuss.....'

Shirone fell into a deep sleep again.


That night.

"Huuuu. Huk."

Shirone tossed and turned in his sleep, sweating coldly. The nightmare that hadn't come when he had fallen asleep like fainting began to fill his sleep time and rose to his consciousness again.


Shirone grimaced and shook his head left and right. Humans were nothing in the vast universe. That void of deprivation wrapped around Shirone with an intense shock.

The nightmare was being sucked into a single point again. Time flowed backward, and he reached the beginning of the universe. A light was seen, and the light turned into a swaying thread and then into foam, filling Shirone's field of vision. It was only light. And the next moment, a powerful explosion erupted in the empty space of nothingness.


Shirone raised his upper body. His wide-open eyes were still watching the afterimage in his memory. Only after feeling the damp sensation of his sweat-soaked pajamas did he slowly turn his head towards the window.

It was a morning filled with the chirping of birds.

"Phew. I thought it would just pass by."

He ended up having a nightmare for no reason. A strange sensation enveloped his entire body, making it shiver.

But Shirone was no longer afraid.

He had heard the cause from Armin, and on the day of the presentation, he had managed to escape the realm of infinity at his will.

Shirone calmly observed the phenomena happening to himself as he gained some control over his strength.

'The universe in my dreams. It's definitely a scene representing the beginning of the universe. And the gauge symmetry.'

Although there was no logical information, he felt a faint connection. It is probably the work of organizing information that occurs in the unconscious. As he remembered Armin, who said he would come to realize it himself, his mind settled down and the feeling of discomfort disappeared.

Shirone went into the bathroom. He slept so deeply that he didn't even know how many days had passed, and his condition was quite good. As he brushed his teeth, he rummaged through his memories, and realized that Iruki and Nade had stopped by.

'Was it a dream? Or did they really go?'

The blurred faces of the two, who said they would go to the casino and hit the jackpot, came to his mind.

'I should have gone with them. What am I going to do now?'

After leaving the bathroom while brushing his teeth, Shirone suddenly looked back at the bed and stopped what he was doing. Small dust particles floating above the bed were spinning. The window was closed, so it wasn't due to convection.

Shirone, forgetting to brush his teeth, rushed over with foam in his mouth. Looking closely, it was definitely moving. He put his hand out into the center of the rotation. Just when he thought he didn't feel anything, suddenly a strong sense of discomfort was felt.


Shirone bent his upper body, vomiting toothpaste foam.

What on earth is it?

It was as if he had personally touched the nerve where the tooth had been pulled out, as if he had confirmed what he knew for the first time.

'This is it! Something I already know but don't know the name of. But what is this?'

Shirone frantically gestured into the air. But he no longer felt any strange sensations. After calming his mind, Shirone went back to his bathroom and washed himself in hot water before leaving. All the while, he kept thinking about the phenomenon he had just discovered.

'It's not wind, pressure, or temperature. But how can the dust move?'
