Infinite Mage (Novel) Chapter 106


Amira's eyes, which had been firmly fixed, wavered for the first time. As strong as her resolve was, it couldn't help but melt when she saw Alpheas's face.

Why wouldn't it? He had been with her since the days when she wet the bed."I'm sorry for making you go through all this trouble."

Amira lowered her head and trying to hold back the tears welling up in her eyes.

"I don't want to cause you pain, Principal. The more respected a person is, the more important it is not to cover up their mistakes. And if things continue like this, the school itself might..."

“Why don’t I understand? No one here hates you. You are the future of this school."

Alpheas looked at Amira with pity. To him, all the students gathered here were like the fruits of his labor. He felt sorry for causing them pain.

Raising her head again, Amira looked at Alpheas with moist eyes. He had a benevolent smile like the one she had seen in childhood.

"Can you trust me just this once? Once the matter with Shirone is resolved, I promise to transparently handle everything. Even if I receive punishment, I will face my beloved students with pride. I will never run away."

Warm tears ran down Amira's cheeks.

"Will you really come back? The person I respect so much..."

"Of course. There will be no deception in my punishment. I promise you with my lifelong honor."

Amira wiped away the tears with the back of her hand. She could never cry in front of Alpheas. She wanted to show a more mature version of herself than she did when she was younger.

"Alright. Since you've said this, the student council will accept your opinion and reconsider the matter. Please don't do anything that would tarnish your honor."

Alpheas smiled happily. She had grown up to be a bright and intelligent student. The girl who used to run to him, calling him 'Principal Dondaeng-nim!' had matured so much.

'Erina, it seems my life wasn't in vain.'

As the student council president made the decision, the protesters disbanded immediately. The conservatives who had occupied the entrance scattered, and the area in front of the building quickly became desolate.

Fermi, the only one left, scratched his head sheepishly.

"Ah, it was going well until the very end, but it got messed up."

Alpheas burst out laughing.

"Hahaha! It seems things didn't go as you planned this time, Fermi."

"Well, I can't help it. Honestly, I think the Principal stepping in is a bit unfair."

"Isn't it time for you to graduate? You'll be twenty-two next year."

"I don't know. There's no better money-making opportunity than this place for now."

“Is that so?”

He knew at least that Fermi was the key figure behind the incident. But for him, Fermi was just a student who had grown up so much, and he couldn't help but feel proud.

“Besides, it's still fun here. Well then.”

Without saying any further goodbyes, Fermi saluted and walked away. After today, he probably wouldn't visit the student council again. Peaceful places don't make money, after all.

Iruki and Nade, who headed to the infirmary, were silent. It was their first serious fight since five years ago, so the awkwardness still lingered. However, Nade couldn't stand the tense atmosphere.

"Hey! How can you not say a word? There's no need to deceive me too, right? You just want to look cool, right?"

“You’re funny. What strategy are you discussing with the guy swimming butterfly in the sea of ​​sorrow? Besides, if the information is leaked, the other side will also come up with a means. Why don't you think more?"

"Yeah, I'm an idiot! You're so great!"

Whether they were angry or cursing, the conversation flowed and the awkwardness disappeared. Iruki asked with a worried expression.

"By the way, how are you? No matter how upset you are, do you really need to reveal your old personality?"

Nade also regretted it deeply and ruffled his hair.

"Ah, I don't know. I didn't have time to think about anything else back then. Anyway, we didn't fight, so it's fine."

"Well, I was so cool. You might have already forgotten about it."

"You're funny. In the end, you had calculated everything?"

"Hehe, what does it matter? Bow down to me."

Their conversation ended when the infirmary door opened. Amy as there to greet them. Iruki awkwardly scratched his head. It was still difficult to be comfortable around Amy, unlike Nade.

"Well, it's turned out like this. Anyway, since we protected Shirone..."

Tears flowed from Amy's eyes just as he was about to gloss over it.

"Thank you. Thank you, Iruki..."

Iruki put on a terrified expression.

"Tsk, it’s fine."
