Chapter 57. Oblivion (1)
Translator: Atlas Editor: Ambrtrn
Weekly Chapter (3/5)
“What if someone discovers my identity?”
There were probably many students at the Academy who were quite perspicacious. It would be difficult to conceal his identity with a single artifact. He needed a contingency plan in case that happened.
“I was just about to talk about it.”
“I’ll erase his memories.”
He doubted his ears for a moment. Memory manipulation was taboo in this world, even a normal person would know that.
“If I consider it a threat to you.”
He couldn’t understand, wouldn’t it be better to persuade them not to say anything?
The master class really seemed very important. His existence would cause serious problems if it were known to the outside world.
Moreover, he knew that there were students in Eternia who came from prestigious families.
He could not believe that she intended to manipulate the memory of these people.
“You intend to erase anyone’s memory, no exceptions?”
“Even the imperial family.”
If she touched the imperial family carelessly, big trouble could happen. If the situation became complicated, it could end in war.
She would defend the master class, no matter how dreadful the consequences were.
She stood up from her chair. Then she walked toward his desk.
“Naturally, it would be preferable to avoid such a scenario. Exceptions can be made as long as it’s a person you trust.”
“…Could you ever manipulate my memory?”
She held up one by one the things that were scattered on his desk. There were petal candies and items he had made from meteoric iron.
“The master class is the exception to the rule.”
It was a relief.
Eternia Academy was a little scary.
It had enough power to use a taboo spell on the imperial family.
He was skeptical that the Academy had been established only for educational reasons.
He was lost in thought as she scrutinized his things.
She had said something tenebrous in a nonchalant manner.
She didn’t seem to care much what he thought.
“You’re very handy with your hands.”
She took a petal candy and ate it without permission.
After a while, she said,
“This is the first time I’ve experienced this flavor, did you make it?”
“Yes, it was a recipe I received.”
A slight smile appeared on Elizabeth’s face. Posted only on NovelUtopia.com
She seemed to like sweet things.
“You have a talent for alchemy… I think you could fit in with the Sorcery Department.”
He didn’t even know about sorcery. He was worried about saying something stupid.
There was no uncomfortable atmosphere.
He then rose from his bed. He opened a drawer where there was a little gift box.
Inside were neatly wrapped petal candies.
He did it beforehand because he heard that an important sorceress was coming, but in reality he thought he couldn’t give it to her.
But now his intuition told him that another opportunity would not present itself.
He carefully handed her the gift box. He couldn’t help but get nervous.
Her eyes grew wide at the sudden gift.
“They’re candies like the one you just ate. I made them for you. I know it seems sudden, but I think it’s the appropriate occasion.”
Elizabeth was silent for a while.
She didn’t even receive the gift.
His mouth went dry.
Countless thoughts popped into his head.
Was I too hasty? Did I make a mistake? Did I really do the right thing?
“I’m in a position where I’m not supposed to receive things from students.”
It looked like he’d screwed up.
Elizabeth covered her smile with her hand.
“You have a rather adorable side. Now I understand why your master appreciates you.”
“You haven’t officially entered the Academy yet, so I can get it.”
She seemed to be laughing at him because he was nervous.
She had a nicer personality than he expected.
Then, she began to write with her finger in the air.
