“Let’s do it.”

“What do you mean?”

Jamie and Keniac who were standing while facing each other, said,

“Rather than teaching the class the entire time, one starts it first and if there is an easier and more efficient way to explain it, you can join in between. To make it easier for the students to understand.”

“Are you going to keep doing that?”

“Right.”

“Not bad.”

To put it simply, A conducts the class first and B watches and if there was an easier way to teach, B can interrupt.

If the students say it is easier to understand, A watches the class and if there is an easier way, then he interrupts the class of B.

That will be repeated over the course of class and be a contest to decide who was better based on students’ evaluation.

“Mr. Keniac should do it first. Set an example as you are a senior.”

“Huhu. You won’t be able to interfere.”

“Let’s see about it. We need to see till the end to know.”

Once again sparks broke out between them, and the students were breaking out in cold sweat.

The victory and defeat of the battle was in their hands.

“Now, open your books. I will start the class.”

Keniac started.

Jamie walked to the window and watched with his arms crossed.

“First, the hexagram is the most basic Magic circle.”

Keniac drew the diagram on the board, it was a form of overlapping triangle and inverted triangle, something which magicians used often.

“There is usually something like a formula for the widely used magic circle which uses hexagram. When you draw the sun, the moon comes with it, and the stars adorn the surrounding. By the way, the sun, moon and stars are simple but difficult to deal with. Why? Anyone who knows?”

“Because of the size!”

When a student answered, Keniac nodded and continued.

“Right. The three symbols are most used but their scale is large. So we magicians create symbols to simplify it. There is only one sun and moon, respectively, fire and water but there are infinite stars and many more symbols. But nothing would work if they aren’t put in the right place. So today, like I said before, I am going to talk about efficiency.”

Like a veteran, Keniac’s explanation continued without interruption.

So far, Jamie couldn’t even intervene.

“Take these firsts.”

As Keniac moved his hand, papers with six stars fell one by one in front of the students.

“I made a magic circle. And I will explain based on it, so listen carefully.”

It was a very simple magic circle with a huge sun drawn in the middle of a hexagram and a moon.

“The stars embrace the sun and the sun embraces the moon. Everyone knows what this means, right?”

“A kind of divination method. The stars represent the greatest universe and the sun represents the world we live in, and the moon represents the night of that world.”

“Right. It is a top-down structure. In other words, it is like an implied state. But if you put a circle here.”

A magic circle he drew on the paper was drawn in the air.

A round circle which covered the hexagram.

“The universe is bound together. And all of these can be used at once instead of sequentially. Does everyone understand?”

“Yes!”

At the energetic response from the students, Keniac glances at Jamie. And smiled as if saying ‘there is no place you can intervene’.

“If you create a circle like this, many things can be done. From this point, it is called a Deep Magic Circle. The power of a magic circle changes depending on where the symbol is selected and placed to contain the magic you think of. But choosing that point is difficult. Even experts haven’t yet been able to give an exact answer to the questi…”

“You just have to draw a line.”

Jamie interrupted.

Keniac frowned.

“What?”

“You just have to draw a line. Like this.”

When Jamie pointed his finger, the magic circle floating in the air swung and the image was split in half.

And then, when he drew a cross, an X was drawn around the split point.

“Adjust the position like this.”

“But the magic circle will break. Don’t you know how important the magic circle is? Oh, you don’t know. You are a great genius with a high level of magic, so you never thought that you could lack in knowledge.”

This man wanted to bite off any weakness.

Unfortunately, Jamie had no weakness. At least not in the magic circle field.

“Unfortunately, I cannot live upto your expectations. But first, shall I continue with my point?”

That was the rule.

So Keniac went to the window and handed Jamie the textbook. As the sunlight shone, Keniac’s face turned darker. Displaying his current mood.

Jamie smiled and went up to the podium.

“Well. This podium is high.

Although he was tall for his age, Jamie was still a little boy.

Because of the huge podium he felt a bit conscious, some students smiled thinking it was cute.

“Where is that jerk who called the teacher cute? This is the class time. Be quiet and focus.”

At the old man’s attitude, the students all went silent.

Keniac’s face too was shocked at Jamie’s appearance. He didn’t think that Jamie would say that to the students. In some ways, it felt like Jamie was like him, a bit better too.

“Hm. let’s just fly.”

Jamie’s body floated lightly.

The students admired it. No matter them being in Alpha class, flying was difficult for them.

“First of all, we will skip the introductions as we will keep seeing each other and I will proceed with the class.”

Jamie went to the magic circle drawn in the air.

“Mr. Keniac said that these lines interfere with the magic circle. It isn’t wrong. Because the existence of these lines is out of balance.”

Keniac who listened asked.

“Then why did you interrupt the class?”

“I have been thinking, but I don’t know why magicians don’t use the word ‘delete’. Because they can’t?”

Keniac frowned at the question.

Because he didn’t understand what was being asked.

“A magic circle drawn with mana cannot be changed from the moment the line begins. Even if one line is drawn incorrectly, there is no choice but to erase it completely. You know it too, right?”

“Right. So why not do that?”

“… what?”

“Listen everyone. This is a technique called Layers.”

The moment Jamie snapped finger, the magic circle began to divide.

The planet, the sun and moon and the lines intersecting.

As if they were separate from the beginning.

“It isn’t difficult if we just configure them separately. Then they can be put back together.”

The components of the magic circle divided into four layers turned one again.

“Be more specific.”

Several lines were added. In order to more smoothly position the symbols in the magic circle.

It wasn’t difficult magic.

“It doesn’t have to be done at once. Magic is a science made for convenience, then wouldn’t it be appropriate to make a more convenient one for the significance?”

The students looked at the magic circle which was created in an instant with admiring eyes.

“How is that, teacher?”

Keniac was also looking at the magic circle with unbelieving eyes. And turned to Jamie.

He didn’t know that the magic circle’s basic crafting could be broken down. This was something shocking for him as well. It wasn’t something which had to be presented in such a small classroom.

“… amazing.”

Jamie was shocked at the approval which came from Keniac’s mouth.

“But…”

He wasn’t done, he stopped ahead.

The eyes turned to Keniac.

“It gave me a good idea.”

“… a good idea, you say?”

“Then how about this?”

As Keniac shook his hand, it pierced the centre of the magic circle.

The magic circle changed three dimensionally and floated in the centre like a hologram.

“Wow!”

“Wah!”

Students continued to admire it.

Keniac moved his fingers.

Several lines were drawn between the three dimensional image and symbols were arranged.

This time, Jamie’s eyes widened.

‘A three dimensional magic circle?’

Jamie was startled by Keniac’s skill.

Actually Jamie knew of the methods which were several times ahead of layer technique.

And the three dimensional circle was one thing he knew. The reason for not showing it was because it was sure to cause a serious impact on the magicians who haven’t learned the Layering technique yet.

Whatever it was, everything had to go sequentially.

But as soon as the layer was up, Keniac took it to another step.

‘He is also a kind of genius.’

Like said, not in magic, but with his mind.

So Keniac was already a genius by Jamie’s standard.

‘But still too early, kid.’

Infinite Magician.

In the past, Diablo Volfir was called so because of the ‘magical subjectivity’ he had acquired.

-Multiple Complex three-dimensional magic circle.

Jamie and Diablo were already at the top of the world with that one circle.

“How about this?”

Jamie smiled and created several magic circles at the same time.

And he put the magic circles as a ‘symbol’.

Keniac’s face contorted with shock.

A magic circle can be part of another magic circle, or part of a larger circle!

Therefore, if space permits, it can be expanded indefinitely.

‘But not more than that.’

That was it.

“You just need to look at this as eye candy. And understand only the layering for today. Because more than that, isn’t an area which can be understood by you right now, am I right? Mr. Keniac?”

Keniac nodded.

Jamie looked back at the students with a satisfied look until someone caught his eye.

‘That child.’

Ann Myers. A student who was intently looking at the magic circle. She must have figured something out.

Was she looking at him out of curiosity?

‘No. those eyes are…’

Sia Another.

A woman who was his disciple.

When she would start to understand something, she would have curious eyes.

Ann’s eyes were moving rapidly, tearing open the magic circle one after another. As if she was imprinting it into her mind.

Jamie smiled.

“That is it for today.”

Jamie, who came down, smiled and was about to go out when someone grabbed his shoulder.

“Hm?”

“Mr. Jamie.”

Keniac brought his gloomy face closer.

“We still have a lot of time left.”

The class only lasted 30 minutes.
