Without realizing it, Eugene was approaching very close.
“Give me your hand.”
That’s what he said, but he was already taking his hand toward my hand.
“Let’s try it on a smaller scale.”
Then he took my right hand and folded my fingers one by one.
The touch was unusually delicate and tender, which surprised me a lot inside.
“Here, focus on your index finger. Try using magic as little as possible.”
He folded the other hand and laid out the spellbook in front of me.
His bright blue eyes were looking straight at me. I could see myself reflected in those eyes.
‘It’s, it’s too close…!’
“Let’s try it. Imagine a magic circle of water while using the flame magic……”
Our eyes met in a flash. At the same time, Eugene stopped talking. While quietly making eye contact.
It was the first time I saw Eugene’s face so close. Silver hair that flutters smoothly and eyelashes that sit on top of sapphire eyes. And thin, long lips.
‘Did he look like this…?’
As my thoughts got there, I suddenly felt like my heart was beating faster.
It was strange.
I’m sure he didn’t like me until recently. Why is my heart beating when I’m looking at him? Eventually, I took a breath and lowered my head.
‘I can’t get caught.’
My heart pounded for fear that he might have seen my face turn red.
‘I must be really crazy.’
It was impossible for me to think Eugene that way.
When I raised my head, Eugene was still staring at me.
As I was conscious of his gaze, I felt my face was going to heat up again, so I lit up and fixed my eyes on the spellbook.
I tried to speak calmly, but I couldn’t tell if it went well. I was afraid that I might be caught shaking my voice a little in embarrassment.
And Eugene stood up and spoke in a low-key voice.
“Nothing. Practice that anyway.”
Leaving his words behind, Eugene trudged to where he was practising. It felt as though there was still a slight warmth in the hand he held.
Thinking so, I rolled up my wide-open hand and clenched my fist.
‘No, let’s not think about anything else.’
Eugene, of course, would have been like that without thinking.
It’s so obvious that the other person had no intentions, but I’m having a strange imagination on my own.
Moreover, it is not enough to just pay attention to practice now. I shook my head after changing my mind that I should focus quickly.
When I focused on my fingers and used the flame magic, a small flame as small as a candle flared up.
In that state, I looked at the water magic circle and tried to think of it.
‘Focusing so that both don’t fade….’
Has it been about 15 minutes like that?
A thin stream of water from my left finger spilt out and fell to the ground.
“Uh, ah, the book!”
“You fool, don’t pick up a book and turn around!”
Eugene’s sharp voice was heard as he was running in confusion.
“I’ll save the book, so focus! Keep it up!”
As he said, I turned my body with my fingers that kept running water and tried not to forget the shape of the water magic circle in my head.
‘If I keep it this way………!”
The water continued to flow until about 30 seconds later.
At last, the moment the stream was cut off and only a small flame was left on the right finger, I relaxed my body and breathed out.
It seemed to be spinning in front of my eyes for a very short time, but it was the first time that it could simultaneously operate.
I felt joy in the fact.
“As expected, I’m a genius…!”
I jumped and screamed with hearty joy.
“It’s good to have a high sense of self-esteem, but don’t let it go easily. We still have a long way to go before it’s complete and perfect.”
Eugene said, squinting his eyes and clearing the spellbook from the floor with a levitating spell.
“Ck, give me a compliment. That’s the only way to give me strength.”
“I think you’re already full of strength because you like it alone.”
“You cold-hearted bastard…….”
As I muttered so, Eugene frowned.
The look on his face made it clear that he would nag at any moment, so I slowly tried to avoid the seat.
“Oh, okay, I’ll practice. I’ll go over there and practice this time.”
As expected, Eugene did not let me go easily.
What, does he think he can be my mother! No, my mom won’t just nag like this.
As soon as I was ready with my mouth sticking out forward, I heard a voice from the back.
At that moment, I couldn’t believe my ears, so I looked back.
“Good job, you did it with a very small force, but I thought it would take a few more days.”
His clear eyes looked straight at me. Eyes that are sharp, but without a single point of lies.
‘Does he really think so?’
The guy who always screamed mean words at me really said this?
He seemed to be sincere from his words and attitudes, but rationally, I couldn’t accept it.
“You’re not saying that because I asked you to compliment me earlier, are you? You’re not bowing down, are you?”
“Don’t be ridiculous. Practice now!”
Yes, you have to cut it off like that to be Eugene Ace.
‘Well, he’s been getting a little better lately.’
Furthermore, nothing good will happen about a joint performance because of the bad relationship. I’m sure Eugene knows that. I think that’s why he says such things like that.
‘Yes, he has improved a lot though.’
I can’t believe that Eugene Ace complimented me for doing a good job.
Of course, he was going to growl again after the show,
“What are you doing, not practising?”
“Oh, yes, yes, I will, I will.”
So the practice continued into the late night, and the lights in the sparrow remained on until the moonlight fell white in the world.
Thanks to the training until late at night, I was hazy even when I had breakfast.
“Oh, my God, Yerine is dying!”
Astra was astonished and cried, hugging me.
“Don’t die, Yerine……!”
“I’m fine, Astra.”
Cassius, who was still watching, quietly put down his spoon.
Then he pushed the pudding in front of him towards me.
“Eat my pudding, too, Yerine, you like this.”
Then, Rayl and Rachel pushed their main dish toward me.
“Our own, too.”
“No, guys… Thank you so much, but I can’t eat it all…….”
In a dying voice, I talked to them, trying to stop them.
“Is it because of that guy, Yerine?”
“Isn’t Eugene making you training too hard?”
The golden eyes of Cassius flashed at the moment.
Seeing that, I thought there would be another bother if I stayed still, so I jumped up and talked as if I had regained my vitality.
“If it doesn’t work, I’ll go and–”
“It’s not because of what Eugene asked me to do, it’s because I’m being unreasonable. So please put the fork down and talk.”
And I snuck the pudding that Cassius had brought to me and talked.
“Well, it’s not that hard. It’s because I’m sleepy. I’ll feel better after taking a walk.”
“Then with me–”
“I’m going with Erica.”
I didn’t set up an iron wall, but I really promised Erica that I would go for a walk in the morning.
If Cassius intervened in it, they would definitely fight again, so it would be easier to say that.
“Uh, I’m going to get going.”
Rachel asked, shining amber eyes.
“Yes, it’s almost time for my appointment.”
Actually, I didn’t have an appetite, so I thought I’d rather go out quickly. We still have about 20 minutes until the appointment.
“I see. Have a good trip, Irene.”
Rayl clenched the cereal into his mouth and mumbled and waved.
Astra and Rachel and Cassius did the same, and I left the cafeteria with their farewells.
‘I was supposed to see Erica at the north gate of the main building.’
As I hurried to the north gate, to my surprise, Erica had already stood, waiting for me.
With her soft cherry-blossom hair braided in pigtails and even a purple ribbon, she came running gladly when she saw me.
“Erica, why did you get out so early? We have 20 minutes until the appointment….”
“I can’t wait to see Yerine!”
I tore my chest at the sight of Erica speaking happily.
“Is my grave here today…”
“Huh, what do you mean, grave, Yerine, what does that mean?”
“Oh, no! Haha……….”
I said so and went outside.
It was a little cool outside because it was morning, but it was rather pleasant. The school landscape, dimly fogged there, gave off a mysterious atmosphere like the hidden palace in the movie.
“Well, shall we go?”
The site of the Academy was quite large, so it took about an hour to complete the tour.
Which means I can be alone with Erica for an hour.
Accepting Erica’s request for taking a walk in the morning with such a dark feeling was a bit stabbed in my conscience, but the mind of a virtuoso was not rationally controllable
“It’s foggy, so it feels different from usual..”
Erica talked, patting her pink hair.
“Yes, I know, it’s cute.”
“Oh? The fog is cute?”
I fell in love with Erica and thoughtlessly uttered what I had in my mind.
“Ah, sorry! Nothing!”
“Oh… well, thank God!”
Did we walk about 30 minutes like that? We arrived at the main gate of the Academy site, where we were talking excitedly.
“Uh……? Professor Frain?”
The moment the front door caught my eye, I could see Professor Frain standing in front of the front gate and talking to someone.
Looking closely, someone was glued to the front gate of the Academy, which was made of iron and talking to Prof. Frain.
“What could it be?”
Erica frowned and asked, looking at the man at the front door.
“I don’t know.”
Looking at the figure together, I answered.
It was just that moment. I heard a voice mixed with tears calling my name.
“So all you have to do is call Yerine Spade here!”
At the sound of the voice ringing in the school site, I stopped walking as if I had been hit in the back of my head.
