First Day of Lesson ⑧ Elisha’s Magic


* Elisha’s PoV *




The ball that was supposed to be drawing close at high speed, looks to be slowly moving closer to my eyes right now.

(As it is, it will hit)

I definitely can’t dodge that.

My choices are already limited.

One is to using magic to block the fire bullet.

The other is to block the fire bullet using anything but magic.

Another one would be to just take the attack.

(But, if I received the attack in this situation….)

Though it might not be a high fatality magic, it would be knocked out.

If that’s the case, I can only defend.


I can’t use magic

It’s not like I have any technical skill I possess.

(Then, how….)

This is vexing.

I lose as it is.

I will lose again.

Two times in a single day.

Why, Why I――

(Why I――Why am I so weak…..!)

The discord that appear one after the other inside my heart.

(I want to become stronger….!)

But, what should I do to become stronger?

What am I, who has no magic and no technical skill, supposed to do――


『“If I can’t become stronger, then I won’t be able to live, so I can only become stronger』


That is Mars’s words which I recalled suddenly in my brain.

Mars is looking over here.

Those eyes are looking at me.

It’s complaining to me to do something about it.

I am told to become stronger to survive in this institute.

That’s what I felt――




Let’s concentrate

The fire bullet drawing closer in front of me.

If I failed, it will definitely hit.

But, right now, I don’t feel like I will fail mysteriously.

My whole body feels whole. My magical power is raising from my body.

(What a nostalgic feeling――If it’s now――)


“――Oh, Wall of Light――”


Instantly――A transparent wall was formed in front of me.


* Mars’s POV *


A sound of “Dagh” was made, the fire bullet that I supposedly released dropped to the ground.

Originally, Elisha who should have received the fire bullet to his body, has already landed from his jumped position, and was looking to my direction.

That expression seems to be somehow random and shocked.


“Reflective Magic, i see. What a convenient magic.”


Elisha used his own magic to reflect the fire bullet.


“Eh? J.. Just now…”

“You were the one who did it.”

“No, No way….!”

“No way you say, then why are you still standing there? It’s because you reflected my magic, that’s why you are still lively standing there now, right?”

“Tha, That… then, really….!”


Elisha who was really shocked.

But, it seems that shock wasn’t just Elisha’s…


“He, wasn’t he unable to use magic?”

“B, but, we saw it just now, right?”


The students who were study by observing are doubting their eyes of the current scene.

But, the truth that occurred will not change.


“You could use magic, couldn’t you?”


As if the timing has been chosen,

――KAN, KAN. (TL: Please imagine this with each sound dragging long before the other, with at least a 5 sec interval before the next one. Good job. Now you get the feeling.. 😀 )

The chime to signal the end of the lesson was rung.

    The way they react is as if (s)he could never use magic, but it has been established that (s)he could before and was good at it. Or I’m just mixing things up. But I’m pretty sure of this.
