|Chapter 43||Chapter 45|
As a stone hand reaches towards Lapis and Linus, Anna suddenly appears and binds it. Immediately after, he collapses from exhaustion. Another arm aims a blow at the three students forcing Linus to give in and start an incantation. He did not have time to finish it and the rock fist hits them. It is then neutralized by Rune’s magic which uses up two of the hearts. Anna regains consciousness and asks where Chevel is.
On the cliff, Chevel begins using his magic to confront Professor Heil. However, his mana stone gets out of hand and Heil takes control of Chevel, turning him into a living puppet. Lidusis reflects in despair. He reminisces today's event and blames himself for everything. Lin Noa and her friend Carmille are still in the woods, separated from the other students and hiding from roaming demons nearby. One demon approaches and Camille promptly faints. Lin grabs a stick and resolves to fight the demon. Before she can defend herself, a blue dragon rushes in and snatches up the demon in its talons. It glances at Lin as it goes, leaving her utterly shocked.
