Infinite Mage (Novel) Chapter 84


Clearing his distracting  thoughts, Canis glared at Shirone. His smooth appearance, seemed like he had never experienced hardships, made his stomach twist.

'Hng. You'll think I'm a villain but….'

The Power of Darkness rose from the shadow of Canis. Despite being cut by the Light Magic, its regeneration speed was tremendous.

'To me, all of you are evil!'

As the Power of Darkness charged, Shirone cleared the ground with Photon Output. Then he threw the Photon Cannon mounted on his right hand. Harvest intercepted and received it with his body. As the Photon Cannon penetrated its body, Harvest's body was pushed back into the forest with a hollow sound. However, far from being shocked, he provoked Shirone by flicking his long fingers. 

"Hehehe. Come on in, come on in."

Although the forest was like home ground for the dark mage, Shirone charged into the forest without hesitation. He swung dozens of photons from left to right, right to left above his head.

Dudududu! Dudududududu!

Over a hundred Light Magic pierced the ceiling of the forest and rose up. Nade and Iruki stared at the sky, which had brightened like daylight, in dismay.

"That bastard, he’s really triggered."

“I guess he understand the situation. If Shirone can't stop him, it's a losing battle in the end.”

Iruki slowly looked away. Lucas was following Shirone into the forest. He spotted the rising gray smoke in front of him and quickly jumped. The Atomic Bomb exploded with a bang, and in an instant, Lucas retreated 10 meters, glaring at Iruki with a fearsome look

“You brat….”

"Don't waste your time. We're thinking about what you're thinking too. Just stay still there."

"That's ridiculous."

No matter how absurd it is, to think that a mage trainee or something like that would deal with a B-class criminal. When Lucas drew his twin swords, a gurgling water sound was heard. The temperament transmitted through the Spirit Zone was like a burning firewood, with a rising haze.

The range of bodies that can be strengthened with a Schema is infinite, but if the balance is not maintained, it can cause serious side effects, so most people use a verified build.

A build that leans to one side will ruin the body. For example, if you strengthen the nervous system too much, the muscles cannot keep up with the speed of the nerves and rupture.

The build Lucas is currently using is a Mitochondrial Build, which enhances the mitochondria, the energy factory of living organisms, to increase energy efficiency momentarily.  (AHEM. Did you know? Mitochondria is the Powerhouse of the Cell.)

Although it has the disadvantage of quickly consuming stamina, the overall effect of increasing the physical aspects simultaneously was attractive, and thus, it was the default build for most users.

'It could be dangerous...'

Iruki checked Nade's condition. Looking at Lucas cold eyes reminded him of the summer five years ago. On a day when the rain poured down, the two had collided. It was close to a miracle that Nade could laugh now. Perhaps he would never show his old face again. He hated the face that resembled the person he loved most in the world.

"Be careful, Nade. That guy is a Schema user."

"I know. Let's increase firepower and suppress them early."

Lucas was dumbfounded. The word "careful" was used when avoiding a puddle or crossing a precarious bridge, not when one's neck was about to be cut off by a blade.

"Haa. Kids these days....”

Lucas's figure scratching his head became blurry. At the same time, a golden flash appeared between Nade and Iruki. The teleportation light flashed and two people appeared ten meters away from Lucas. Iruki grasped his chest. His clothes were sharply cut and blood leaked from the line drawn on his chest.

"Are you okay?"

“It is not fatal. But it's really fast.”

Even though magic was a transcendent power, a mage's body was still human. Without the effect of magic, their ability to react and respond to Schema's movement inevitably fell short.

However, if you think about it backwards, it was the same for the swordsman. The power of magic was not something Schema could withstand. Even a student-level magic could be lethal if a direct hit was allowed.

Nade and Iruki concentrated their firepower. Atomic Bomb chain explosions followed like a snake, and Nade calculated Lucas's trajectory and fired predictive shots. However, they couldn't land a hit due to the completely different movement from the mechanical patterns they trained at school.

'Damn it! How are these youngsters so good?'

The situation was not easy for Lucas. Due to the characteristics of his Mitochondria Vuild, his stamina was dropping by the second. Raising his energy metabolism to the maximum, his speed increased dramatically. Circling the wide radius in an instant, he jumped up from Iruki's side and brandished his twin swords. Nade, who had run from the opposite side, held out both hands. An electric shock spell hit his abdomen, and an alternating vibration shook his body at 60 times per second.

“Iruki! Now!”

Iruki was already prepared. Gray smoke rose from the stunned Lucas' face. Lucas, who watched the explosion reaction right in front of him, tried his best to move his body. His muscles felt as if they had turned to charcoal and wouldn't respond.

'Damn! Damn!'
