Talent Swallowing Magician - CH 2
Sean took a quick look around for a moment, and only after confirming that no one was interested in this way did he say with a serious expression.
“You are careful. Do you know that the expedition team was launched for nothing? After publishing, discussing, and reviewing dozens or hundreds of papers in academia, we decided on the possibilities.”
“Does anyone you know say that? Here?”
Sean, who raised his voice, whispered quickly.
“Do you know how many professors participated here? You said you touched all of those idiots now.”
“But what if it’s true?”
Elric shrugged, and Sean narrowed his brow.
He knew Elric’s genius.
However, I couldn’t understand why hundreds of scholars, who were considered to be the best, drew a line based on years of research.
As if Elric was waiting, he pointed to a point on the map attached to the plan with his index finger.
“This point here. It is a crack that is split by a caterpillar and a caterpillar colliding with each other. You could say it’s a cliff that falls down. According to the geological survey, it was said that it was made at least 100,000 years ago, so you must have thought that this is the only place for a dragon’s nest.”
A huge amount of mana generated when two layers collide.
it cracks for thousands of years
It would have settled down in between.
The theoretical basis was sufficient.
– From high to low.
The crack was much lower than the ground.
So deep that I can’t see the end.
– From hot to cold.
Since the sun never hits,
It would be much colder too.
– From wide to narrow.
The end of the crack had to be very narrow.
The magicians who discovered the traces of the dragon removed the impossible one by one based on all the hypotheses, and finally, only one place remained.
So it was declared.
There’s a dragon’s nest here.
“But this niche is the mana stream.
There is one factor that regards the law.”
“Don’t drag the horse.”
“The ground is hot.”
“What? There is no volcanic area here. It’s 300 meters underground, where even sunlight doesn’t reach.”
“But there is very hot groundwater flowing from the volcanic lava fields.”
“volcano? Where the hell is something like that?”
Elric took a picture of a place on the map.
Sean frowned again.
The place Elric was pointing to was Acran Volcano located in the ‘Ring of Fire’, a region far north of the dragon’s nest located at the southern end of the continent.
Elric started pouring out words like a rapid-fire cannon.
“Water from Akran Volcano flows down the continent without going through the sea due to the unique topography of the ‘Ring of Fire’. Some of them are Yongcheonhyeol, which is used as a drinking water source in a village built on the east coast of this area. therefore… …
Each time Elric walks through the terrain, Sean’s gaze moves in the same way.
And little by little, her complexion turned white.
“So, taking all these conditions into account, there is only one compartment where groundwater can go down with a lot of tangled water.”
With a pen, Elric drew a large circle around the plot of the dragon’s nest.
“… But as you can see from the last page, it was also successful in extracting the dragon’s magic wave in this area.”
At Sean’s rebuttal, Elric
“Didn’t I say there wouldn’t be a nest?”
“There will be. clearly. In any case, it is a spiritual element that inevitably condenses mana as a whole. here.”
“Then where do you think the nest is?”
Elric pointed to an unnamed cave a mile to the west of the original location.
“I will definitely be here.”
His voice was very firm.
“•••Damn it. How the hell are you going to tell this to a geek?”
Sean had to scratch the back of his head nervously all the way back to the lab.
It was because the more I chewed on what Elric had told me, the more confident I was that I wasn’t lying.
And even the fact that there must be a real dragon’s nest in the place you specified at the end.
So that was more of a problem.
It was his responsibility to deal with the professor from now on.
Sean’s advisor is a powerful person who is even mentioned as the next president.
He liked playing politics more than research, and he loved fighting games more than thesis papers.
The reason Sean was forced under his command was to show his family well.
As such, the advisor extremely hated to paint over his authority.
Considering that he took the lead in planning this expedition, he was sure to get angry when he heard that there was no nest.
‘Are you going to just pretend you don’t know and pass it on?’
But also, this opportunity was the most important to Elric.
If it was known that Elric had located the real nest, would it be paid for? Maybe you can get your name listed in a professional journal.
‘Let’s do it now.’
Sean stood in front of the professor’s room for a while, then got a big heart and knocked on the door.
“Well! Sean-kun, so what you’re saying now is that the nest is in a different place, right?”
Supervisor Verlux looked at Sean with an overtly displeased expression.
“It’s not that, I’m looking for the professor’s advice because I wondered if there is a possibility that I might be here.”
Sean tried to speak in a way that didn’t touch Professor Verlux’s heart as much as possible.
Already, Verlux’s eyes were hot enough to roast him several times if possible.
‘Damn it! That’s why I didn’t want to come!’
If it wasn’t for Sean’s background, I’d have thrown the ashtray right away.
“Why did you make that decision?
Gee, you’ll have to convince me from now on. If not… … . No matter how much you are the son of the Neresta family, you can never let it go.”
Sean’s mouth seemed to dry out, but since it was a protest that had already been pulled, he continued his explanation slowly with clenched fists.
just as expected.
Unlike the first time, Professor Verlux’s expression gradually changed strangely throughout the explanation.
“… That’s what I’m guessing.”
After all explanations are complete.
Professor Verlux tapped the desk with his index finger, silently and silently.
It was a habit of his own that he always showed when he was immersed in trouble.
When the goal in the middle of the forehead deepens.
“This speculation, whose opinion was it?”
“Wow, this is Elric Mervinger from the Department of Elemental Magic!”
“A shame on the Mervinger family, right? Then there is no need to think more deeply
Professor Verlux burst into laughter.
“It is certainly a plausible guess. ‘Cause I’ve been suffocating for a moment too. It is an insight and insight that is difficult for a single student to provide.”
“But! That’s it. Do you not even think about the loss of groundwater that occurs in the process of flowing to the southern end? Moreover, all of the things presented as evidence are just guesses, aren’t they? Without a single middle ground.
It is nothing more than a plausible concoction of several papers published in the world.”
Professor Verlux continued with a light snort.
“I heard that the shame of the Mervinger family is on the verge of expulsion after receiving another academic warning this time? You won’t be able to pass the additional test with a body like an asshole that can’t even squat, let alone store magic… … . You’re a gero who has come up with a trick.”
Sean’s fist tightened at those words.
Whether you know Sean’s reaction or not.
Professor Verlux waved his hand as if he didn’t want to hear any more.
“It looks like he was trying to trick you into doing anything, but I can’t avoid my eyes.”
“If… Elric Mervinger’s guess might be right?”
Sean asked in a tone like he was pressing something.
Professor Verlux tried to fire off the sound he told him not to say, and then he glanced up and down Sean and suddenly smiled kindly.
“Of course, there are times when the affairs of the world get caught walking backwards. I can’t just ignore the opinions of cadets who have not yet been expelled as dean.”
“If you do, do this.”
“… What do you mean?”
In an instant, one corner of Professor Verlux’s lips twisted sharply.
“The department will give you a chance, so why not make a bet?”
“bet? great. call.”
Elric ran to the dormitory in about a month and nodded to see Sean, who had been chatting for a while about what had happened with his supervisor.
Sean groaned as he twisted his brows.
“Oh, my ears are going to fall off. hear me next door Speak small.”
Sean didn’t care at all about Elric’s Pinzan.
“You’re not even mad!”
“The dean says that a human being from a department is going to burn something that is nothing but a treasure trove… !”
Sean still did not forget the last bet offered by Professor Verlux in his mind.
-I’ll give you all the power to set up an expedition. Elric Mervinger’s guess was also very plausible, so what’s wrong with checking it out?
-But, as you all know, the department’s budget is not very generous. We need plausible evidence to convince the budget department. When exploration fails, something worth looking around… … .
– So that’s it. Elric Mervinger
I’ve heard that Lee always treasures the belongings of the first president. How about depositing it?
Usden Mervinger, the first president of the Usden Academy, became Elric’s grandfather.
He had never seen his grandfather in person.
He died early before he was even born.
However, since he left such a big mark in the history of the continent, Elric showed his face through the statue even though he had never seen it.
and knew his achievements through the saga.
It was the only relic left by such a grandfather to the family.
No, it was precisely the heirloom that passed down from generation to generation to the head of the Mervinger family.
A necklace in the shape of a swastika (ear) that has faded in light.
Also known as ‘Mado-Gyeongsik (魔道頓飾)’.
Elric wore it all the time, so he sometimes forgot the importance of it.
It had no choice but to give a special meaning to those who followed Usdon Mervinger and worshiped the noble family of magic.
Professor Verlux is telling me to put this out.
Although the ‘deposit’ was used as an excuse, it was obvious who would fall into the hands after that.
If they were other nobles who put their family’s honor above anyone else, it would be an insulting proposal that wouldn’t be strange even if they had a sword right now.
Elric just laughed.
“It wasn’t even a day or two that the yangban coveted this, what?”
“You say that now… !”
“Still, thank you. After all, you listened to me until the end, didn’t you?”
Sean slumped into his seat.
I’ve been angry on behalf of you so far, but will the person in charge react like this only to lose more power?
In fact, Elric looked at such a friend with joy.
“••• So what are you going to do now? Are you really going to pack your bags?”
Professor Verlux is in Elric’s guessing place.
The condition was that if a nest was really found, the payment would be exempted.
In the end, it is a crossroads of all-or-nothing.
“Huh. It should be cheap.”
“Sigh! finally… .”
“But one thing is missing.”
“This one is betting heirlooms, but that one is only betting on exemption from paid? That’s why the scales don’t fit.”
For a moment, Elric smiled in Sean’s eyes as wickedly as Professor Verlux.
“The dean has to walk the life of his dean, isn’t it a bit heavy?”
Only then did Sean remember.
Besides the nickname ‘Shame of the Mervinger’, another nickname for Elric that is secretly spread among the cadets.
