|Chapter 44||Chapter 46|
Back in the forest where the professors are, a teleportation circle appears and out step several magicians from the Tower along with Chevel’s father, Marquis Hadelio. Marquis tells everyone to step back and chides the two professors for not being able to handle the situation on their own. The stone monster attacks him while his head is turned but he blocks it with ease. He asks where his son and the other students are.
Atop the cliff, Chevel has lost his free-will and awareness, becoming a mere puppet for Professor Heil to manipulate. Professor Heil tells the other students that the objective of their “lesson” is to fight to the death with Chevel who has summoned two large mana monsters.
Chevel, unaware of the situation, is reminiscing about his younger sister Ibriel. They are in a carriage headed towards the Artian’s mansion in order to meet Lidusis. Ibriel proclaims that this time, she will become friends with him. When they arrive, Lidusis’ older brother greets them and engages Chevel in small talk while Ibriel looks around. Just as Chevel is about to introduce her, she sees Lidusis hiding behind a pillar and runs after him.
