Finn was walking down the hallway with his hand in the pocket. He wasn’t going anywhere. There were only a few minutes left for the first class to start, but he got frustrated and left his seat.

He never thought Ann would say such a thing.

They always supported and encouraged each other, but for her to be blinded by jealousy…!

‘She doesn’t seem to support me.’

If she was so envious, she should just drink Apophis X!

She doesn’t drink because she doesn’t want to lower her self-esteem, but keeps checks on other people?

Finn felt his emotions intensify.

He couldn’t understand why she said such things.

Ann’s intelligence was genius level. Once she saw something, she would never forget it and could solve any problem.

However, she wasn’t born with magic, so it was difficult for her to move to the next level.

Despite not wanting to believe it, that was the reality.

And if she could put her pride down and drink Apophis X, all her problems would be solved.

“It’s class time soon, so where are you going?”

Just then, a woman’s voice called Finn from behind.

When he turned around, Miss Sophia was smiling while rubbing her blue hair.

“It is time for Alpha’s first class, right?”

“Ah.. I just wanted some fresh air.”

“Why is air sudd…”

Sophia walked over to Finn, and said,

“You look bad. Did you have a fight with your friend?”

“It wasn’t a fight.”

“Eh~I know the truth. Talk to me.”

Finn glanced at her, sighed briefly and recounted all that happened with Ann.

After hearing that, Sophia patted him on the back.

“You must be very disappointed.”

“I just didn’t think that she would say that.”

“Still, you should get along with your friends.”

“I understand that. I would be envious if Ann’s performance suddenly elevated. But even so… I wouldn’t speak out like that.”

“Right. Right. Calm down.”

When she took Finn to the window, it seemed like he calmed down a little.

“People are born that way. As there is a saying that it hurts when someone close buys a land first. No matter how close you are, if one suddenly gets better, it won’t be easy to understand and admit it. Ann wouldn’t be able to either.”

“Right?”

“Of course. Everyone knows that Ann is a good child, right? This has to be a slight mistake. So forgive your friend by being a generous one.”

“Forgi…ve?”

“Yes. Since Finn is kind. But if you want to… how about this?”

“What?”

“Bring Ann with you today.”

She didn’t say where, but Finn understood right away and asked.

“Ann?”

“Yes. Why? Don’t want to have more of your friends there?”

“N-Not that. I get it. I will bring Ann.”

“Huhuhu. Good thought.”

“Ann will understand me if she experiences it.”

“Right. I knew it, Finn is kind, right?”

As Miss Sophia gently stroked Finn’s hair, Finn blushed.

Sophia smiled and grabbed Finn’s wrist and pulled him.

“Now. Let’s go. The first class starts soon. The teacher will come by so go there.”

“… yes.”

Finn greeted her goodbye and returned to his class.

Sophia who giggled looking at the cute side of Finn turned around.

Keniac was there.

“Seems like someone is doing as they please.”

“Haha. It is good. Let’s meet later~”

Sophia patted Keniac on the shoulder and passed. If the other teachers had seen them, they would have been shocked to see them talk like this.

Keniac, who is a lonely persona and doesn’t like to mingle, and Sophia a socialite, seemed close.

Not exactly friendly.

“…”

Keniac watched Sophia walk away.


Around work time.

Jamie, who finished all his classes, quickly left work and headed somewhere.

It would be absurd to call him the best, but Jamie was no ordinary teacher.

He came here because of the elders of the Magic world and regardless of his age, he is a 6th class magician.

Who could be mean to him?

Apart from Siegfried, there was no magician better than Jamie.

And now. Jamie left his bag in place and went to the only magician better than him.

“Is the principal here?”

“Come in.”

When the permission came, Jamie opened the door and entered the office.

The office was more cluttered than before.

Siegfried didn’t even look at the guest who arrived and kept looking at the old books.

“Elder.”

When Jamie called Siegfried, he looked up.

“Young lord? Someone called me principal so I didn’t think it would be you.”

Normally, one would know who it was by listening to the voice.

But Jamie didn’t bother raising it, he said as he sat down.

“You still haven’t found a way?”

“If it could be made in one day. I wouldn’t be interested in it in the first place.”

It was called a challenge because it was difficult.

While Jamie thought that this was a perverted preference, he also thought that it was extremely amazing.

Siegfried stopped reading and rubbed his eyes with thumbs.

“I feel like my eyes will spill out.”

“How many did you read?”

“I think I looked through most of them for two days without a break.”

Then why weren’t his eyes spilling out?

“Phew. But what happened? No classes?”

Siegfried rose from his seat and stretched up, the sound of joints cracking could be heard.

It seemed like he hadn’t moved for two days.

He couldn’t help but wonder if he went to the bathroom, but he didn’t need to know that information.

Jamie opened his mouth as he watched Siegfried approaching.

“I have a question about Ann.”

“Ann? Ah you have been here for the sake of Ann before. So have you decided to make her your disciple?”

“Yes.”

“Right? You won’t… eek?!”

Siegfried, who was joking about it, soon became shocked.

He didn’t seem to expect that Jamie would really take a disciple.

“With your character, a disciple…?”

“My character?”

“Awkward, grumpy, cocky.”

“Cute. Good and smart.”

“Ignorant. Arrogant and cheap.”

“Handsome. Magician genius. Swordsman genius.”

“I am a genius too.”

“I am more of a genius.”

The two looked at each other, frowned and snorted.

“Well, it is surprising.”

“I also took in Lennon Simon as my disciple.”

“… this is really surprising?”

Siegfried knew about Lennon, but never met him.

Not only was that child cheeky, but he was known to be the possessor of a twisted mind and was great with manipulating others.

Last year, after being harassed by Jamie for a mistake, he heard that the naughty personality got a little better after Count Simon taught him.

“I like the synergy of the two.”

“The synergy you are speaking of is in a good way, right?”

“If the results are good, then it’s a good synergy.”

“… note that they are still kids. Whether it is envy, jealousy of inferiority. It is a dangerous feeling in the hearts of 10 year olds.”

“I am 8.”

“…”

Having said that, it was Siegfried who had nothing to say.

He coughed and continued.

“Anyway. Don’t you know how much the emotions of children affect their growth? You are a child too.”

“Are you walking back on your words?”

“Just be careful. It is good to work, but if it turns hard, kids grow up too fast or regress too.”

“I’ll keep that in mind.”

Jamie thought this through.

Disciples of 9 and 10.

He had no intention of making them Great Magicians by erasing their personality.

It will take longer. But the two of them were talented ones, and they will grow in their own time when the right conditions were met.

‘I will take care of them until they reach 4th class.’

Magicians turn independent from 4th class.

From then on, the only thing they could rely on would be the advice of their teacher.

“Are you going to report that?”

“Something like that.”

“Something? Nothing more to say?”

“I heard this from Mr. Keniac not long ago.”

“What was it?”

“He was saying that taking Ann as a disciple isn’t good and to be careful.”

Siegfried frowned at it.

And he responded as he ran his hand through his blonde hair which hadn’t been combed for days.

“Careful? Careful about what?”

“He wouldn’t tell me even when I asked. So I thought elder would know something.”

“Well. It’s rare for me to say this, but I have very little real power here.”

“Is that something to say so proudly?”

Siegfried coughed at it.

“I can’t help it. In the first place, I was forced to assume the position under the pressure of the other elders… and I spent less than a tenth of a year here.”

“Which is why Mr. Javelin is the acting principal.”

“Actually, I only recently found out about that.”

“You are really incompetent.”

“I am a capable Great Magician so it’s fine.”

Jamie wanted to hit Siegfried on his head, but he didn’t.

It’s impossible to do anything now, but one day when he gets stronger he would.

“Anyway. He keeps saying that. I came here to just see if Elder knew anything about it.”

“You can at least say that you are here to see me with a bright face, it hurts that you are here for work.”

“I was heartbroken when I came to know that elder was incompetent.”

“My, my.”

Jamie had nothing more to say and stood up.

“I’ll stop. I will go to Mr. Keniac and ask him again.”

“Hmm.”

As Jamie was about to leave, Siegfried said.

“Does the young lord know what is trending in the Magic world these days?”

“Uh?”

“They say that a nutritional supplement called Apophis X is quite popular.”

“Ah. I know that. I saw some students drinking it. It seems like some teachers also drink…”

“Mr. Silver was one of them.”

“….?”

Why mention Silver so suddenly?

“I am not interested, but now I’m deducing that the disappearance might have something to do with it.”

“Why are you saying that to me? You can go and find the truth behind it.”

“Well. Maybe I was aiming for something like this.”

Jamie noticed Siegfried talking in a roundabout manner and said.

“You want me to find out?”

“I really don’t know why Mr. Keniac said that, but if he says she could be dangerous then, usually…”

It was then.

Beep! Beep! Beep!

“Hm?”

Siegfried frowned at the noise.

Jamie pulled out a cubic studded necklace from the pocket. It was the same as what he gave Ann and Lennon, and the alarm would happen if something went wrong.

And now it was Ann’s necklace.

“We can never see the truth of the world. I gave it today and it rings right away.”

“What is that?”

“An SOS,”

With that, Jamie teleported away from the office leaving Siegfried alone. Siegfried rubbed his scruffy beard with his palm.

“I need a shave.”
