Chapter 08: Diary of Director Amelia
〇 Month 〇 Day
I don’t think I will forget this day until I die.
It’s been hundreds of years since the “dark attribute” was last seen.
There is no record of that for at least the past 100 years.
I was so surprised that I did something a little crude, I regretted it.
But I can’t suppress my intellectual curiosity about this.
It’s simply impossible for me, utterly impossible.
Because there’s a lot I wanted to know about the “dark attribute”!
Tomorrow I will inform the Ministry of Magic that I will remain in “Gilbadia” for a while.
I then will ask Sir Gilbert to let me study Luke’s “dark attribute”.
Hmm, but I’m not very good at negotiating.
I hope he’ll listen to me at least.
〇 Month ✕ Day
As it turned out, the negotiations went well.
And Sir Gilbert asked me to teach Luke some magic.
… But I’m not good at teaching to begin with.
Someone has to teach him, though, because you can’t use attribute magic without a solid foundation in magic anyway.
Well, to tell you the truth, I’m also certified to teach at the Aslan School of Magic.
But that’s just because I wanted to be free to come and go from that academy.
The big library there is really nice, you know.
The research facilities are well equipped too, and if you are qualified, you don’t need to go through any troublesome procedures, so it’s very convenient.
But the thing is, I’m not interested in nurturing the next generation.
Haah, I’m nervous.
Since I was a student, no one really understood me when I taught them.
〇 Month △ day
… Today was the first day of Luke-kun’s magic classes.
One thing was made clear to me on this day.
Luke-kun doesn’t need a teacher.
What the h**l is that kid!
This is really bad!
All I had to do was just hand him a magic book!
I have been called a ‘genius’ by many people.
To be honest, objectively speaking, I am one of those most talented people in magic.
I could do most things without difficulty.
… but Luke-kun is not of that level.
Who on earth can control magic with such precision on their first time performing it?
How many people can use several unattributed magic on the first day of learning magic?
The answer is no one.
I used to think that it was impossible… until now.
But Luke-kun, he did it right in front of me.
It’s too bad.
What is with this kid, really.
〇 Month ♢ Day
The amount of magical power possessed is a talent.
The amount of magic power generated is effort.
It’s a common saying, but not in my view.
You need talent on both sides.
But the only thing that can’t be helped by effort is the amount of magic power you possess.
Today I was surprised by the information magic “Magic Perception”.
This is magic that allows you to see the amount of magic power someone possesses.
I literally saw Luke-kun’s enormous magical power today.
I think it’s on par with a school principal or a magic knight, that amount of magic power.
No, maybe more than that.
Well, from the moment I arrived here, I felt the magic was very strong.
Even Sir Gilbert is terrific.
This must be in their blood.
At least today is going well.
As always, it goes beyond my imagination.
Maybe it’s getting a little interesting to teach at this point.
〇 Month □ Day
Only 18 days.
In just 18 days, Luke-kun has mastered all the basics of magic, which should have taken him several years to master.
He can already handle almost all non-attribute magic.
Seriously, it’s too unbelievable.
I had heard rumors about the eldest son of the Gilbert family.
That he is an aristocrat but a sword fighter.
Even I, who is not familiar with world affairs because of all my research, know that this has been whispered among the nobility for the past two years.
When I was first told about this, I thought he would not be ready by the time he was 15 years old, when he would be able to take the entrance exam for the Magic Academy.
Because he had less than 2 years left.
But the reality was the exact opposite.
He was a ‘monster’ with an unusual magical talent.
That is truly frightening in addition to the fact that he doesn’t even fail to make an effort.
Finally, tomorrow I can move on to teaching attribute magic!!!
Ahh, I can’t wait any longer!
I’m so excited I don’t think I’ll be able to sleep today.
〇 Month ◎ Day
As the legend states, “Light” keeps everything away and ‘Darkness” swallows everything.
The light attribute is [reflective] and the dark attribute is [absorbing].
This was right on!
Well, this is about as documented as it gets, but it’s still impressive to see it in person!
The characteristic of ‘absorbing magic’.
It’s really awesome!
Too much already!
However, I’m wondering how to teach from here.
Rare attributes are difficult to teach because there are few precedents.
I mean, there are so many areas that you have to carve out on your own.
So I decided to show him my attribute magic for now.
My attribute is ‘sound’.
To be frank, my sound attribute is strong.
In my attribute magic, everything is “invisible” and at the “speed of sound”.
If an ordinary person were to turn against me, I think they would die without knowing what had been done to them.
I showed Luke-kun the magic of “sound arrows”.
It is extremely rudimentary magic, but when the sound attribute is added to it, it becomes an invisible, sonic blow.
Yes, my strong magic.
It was kind of cute that Luke-kun, who is always so uptight, was a little surprised when he saw it.
There would be an upper limit of tolerance, but the dark attribute has the characteristic of ‘absorption’, so theoretically it could be the strongest spear or shield.
But whether he can block my magic is another story.
It is impossible to prevent my magic after you see it.
Because you won’t be able to invoke your magic in time.
I think Luke-kun understood that immediately.
He got lost in thought right then and there.
This was the end of the day after all.
Hmm, I guess it was not good to show my magic all of a sudden.
Teaching is really difficult.
It’s really bad.
Luke-kun named it─── “The Blessing of Darkness”.
“Magic Perception” is an ability that every magician possesses.
It is a very simple ability, that of sensing magic power, which is not even magic..
And then there is “magic barrier”, which is a magic that prevents magic.
Luke-kun said he “linked” the two.
A theory that even I don’t understand.
Even I, the director of the Attribute Magic Research Division.
The “The Blessing of Darkness” is a “magical barrier” of the dark attribute that is activated the moment it senses magic power.
In other words, this magic allows Luke-kun to semi-automatically prevent the magic of others.
There is no need to even be aware of it, and it is no longer relevant whether it is invisible or the speed of sound.
When he told me to try it, at first I didn’t believe him.
But I couldn’t resist greed.
No matter how much I weaken my magic, a direct hit will inevitably cause serious injury.
And yet, still, I just couldn’t do it.
An irresistible urge to try.
Looking back, I think I was really self-centered.
But… Luke-kun was telling the truth.
My magic was completely blocked!
This is really bad!!!
According to Luke, “The Blessing of Darkness” is a kind of subconscious magic and can only prevent magic below a certain magic power.
Even if that were the case, Luke-kun has absolutely no idea how great this is.
He doesn’t know the worth of this magic.
But that wasn’t all of it.
Luke was able to simulate the magic that he had “absorbed” with the “Blessing of Darkness”!
He actually recreated my “Sound Arrow” and showed it to me!!
Ohhhhhh, it’s too much already! ── (text is messed up and unreadable)
〇 Month ☆ Day
Luke-kun is now able to use the basic “Dark Arrows”.
I mean, this one definitely comes before the “Blessing of Darkness”.
Luke-kun is strange in many ways.
I’m used to it now.
While my “Sound Arrow” has the properties of “invisibility” and “speed of sound”, Luke’s “Dark Arrow” has the property of “absorption”.
This means that only a magical barrier greater than the magical power he put into it can absorb and prevent it.
On the contrary, the absorbed magic power will increase its power.
Aaahhh, dark attributes are the best!
That’s a ton of potential!
I knew I was right to stay here.
Things I want to research keep coming up.
I would like to know more about the “Dark Attribute”.
Oh, by the way.
There’s going to be a party soon.
A party to celebrate Luke’s “dark attribute” manifestation.
They want me to attend too… I don’t want to…
I wish I could sit quietly in the shade and watch Luke work his magic.
A lot of nobles will be coming, and I have to behave properly.
