Infinite Mage (Novel) Chapter 145


“Hmph, they are just thugs. Don't worry and just wait for us to come back."

Jis confessed what he knew. He didn't want to scare them who were leaving to save his sibling, but he couldn't bear the guilt of his conscience if he sent them as is.

"They showed up out of nowhere and took over the island in three months. They're not a simple organization. According to one of Falkoa's direct subordinates, they were known as the Parrot Bandits before they came to the island."

"Parrot Thieves?"

Shirone's eyes widened. Amy was also lost in her thoughts, as if it was unexpected this time.

The Parrot Bandits were the band of thieves that a man named Lucas, who had stormed the school with Arcane, belonged to.

Amy had watched Lucas's martial arts. As the effect of Abyss Nova faded, she remembered that he was a strong enemy who could not be helped even with Iruki and Nade's pincer attack.

If it hadn't been for Sienna's sudden intrusion, the situation where all the students would be safe would not have been possible.

In any case, knowing their identity did not change the situation. It was crucial to leave as soon as possible, as an innocent girl's life was at stake.

"It's okay. We've even fought and won against the vice-leader of the Parrot Bandits."

Jis swallowed his tears and gritted his teeth.

"Thanks. For doing so much for a guy like me."

So far, the nobles Jis met didn't even treat the gang in the back alley as human beings.

Perhaps it was natural. Why would they, monopolizing the world's wealth and fame, pay attention to a person from the dark?

But these people were different. They were willing to fight for him, who had only schemed to deceive others with shallow words.

“This grace… How should I really pay you back?"

Embarrassed by Jis' continued gratitude, Amy put her hand on her waist and sighed.

"Enough. In a way, you saved me. Rather, it is we who have been helped.”

"But such a dangerous task..."

“There is no need to complicate things. It's not like we don't know each other now. Plus, you even asked like a man, so we're doing this."

Jis looked at Amy with an absurd expression.

How could the words "being manly" fit in this situation? Shouldn't it be the other way around?

"Tsk, if you're pitying me, just quit it. Manly, my foot. What kind of man would beg so disgracefully? I've got no pride left."

"What are you talking about? You threw away your pride to ask for your sibling back."

"Well, that's true, but..."

Amy smiled and lightly pushed Jis' forehead.

"That's what it means to be a man, you idiot."

As Amy left those words and walked away, Jis almost broke down in tears. But he felt he had to hold back. It was because he thought that if he cried already, he would pour cold water on their resolve.

Rian patted Jis on the shoulder and followed Amy.

"Don't worry. You saved my friend, so I'll be sure to save your sister too.”

Tess added.

“Instead, you should give them a proper tour when they come back. I will definitely get what we've earned for our effort."

Shirone turned to Jis in front of the door and said.

"Trust us. We'll definitely bring your sister back safely."
