“I had no choice. If I didn’t do such a crazy thing, I would have died from excessive blood loss.”
As he looked at this man who used a Phoenix’s flames to cauterize his injuries, Peran couldn’t blame him.
Lukas looked up at the sky before murmuring.
“…the one going crazy right now is Nix.”
“That’s her name.”
He couldn’t help but have a strange feeling.
Peran hadn’t known the name of the Monster Queen before, no, he hadn’t even known that she had a name.
So how did this man know the Monster Queen’s name?
“We have to stop Nix.”
“Of course, if we leave the Monster Queen like this, then not just this forest, but this entire area will become a sea of fire. Fortunately, there are no cities or villages in this area. Although it’s a pity, I don’t think we can stop the Amalgam Forest from disappearing…”
“That’s not what I mean. Right now, Nix is using her life force to create those flames. If we let this continue, her body and soul will eventually disappear without a trace.”
“What’s wrong with that?”
Nix was a murderer.
A murderer who had already killed thousands of people, and who, if left alone, would kill even more.
But now, it sounded like Lukas was worried about her.
“I don’t want that to happen.”
“…you don’t want it to happen? Are you thinking of saving the Monster Queen?”
When Lukas nodded his head slowly, Peran’s expression became cold.
“You really have lost your mind. She tried to kill you.”
“I know that. But I still want to save her.”
It was an uncompromising tone.
…Since he’d heard a bit of their conversation, Peran was able to gather that Lukas and Nix had some kind of relationship.
But even with that…
“Peran, you’re just as amazing as I thought.”
“You must have worked hard day and night. You probably used all of your talents but still suffered from setbacks. You must have been desperate. People who are called geniuses all feel that the first wall they encounter is as high as a mountain. Most of them usually fail to climb that wall.”
He wasn’t sure why Lukas was suddenly saying this.
But for some reason, Peran suddenly felt like he was going to cry.
Lukas forced himself up from the ground. His entire body ached, and he felt dizzy, but he forcibly stood up.
…He was glad that he met Peran.
Because he was the only one who seemed to remember him.
This allowed him to piece together some of his broken heart.
Peran looked at Lukas with a complicated gaze before opening his mouth.
The flames in the sky merged to form a gigantic sun.
It looked like the entire sky was on fire.
Upon seeing this, Peran couldn’t help but put aside what he was about to say.
“…it seems it’s already too late for us to run away. That sun will soon explode.”
“The explosion will probably have a radius of a few kilometers, but the damage radius will probably be more than double that.”
The area would be devoured by the explosion and flames, and the only one who would be safe was Nix, who was immune to them.
Peran thought of dozens of ideas in an instant, but none of them seemed feasible.
“…this is the end.’
This wasn’t him giving up quickly.
Instead, Peran had thought up all kinds of situations and considered all the available means, but he could not find a way to overcome this difficulty.
“Don’t you still have mana left?”
“It’s not enough. I don’t have enough to stop this attack or to escape its range.”
The sun would explode in about a minute.
It was just his guess, but he was sure that he wouldn’t be off by more than 5 seconds.
It was an absurdly short time to run away, it was the same even if he used the Fly spell at maximum speed. He also didn’t have enough mana to use the Warp spell.
No matter what method he used, his remaining mana was not enough to let him escape the explosion.
So it was natural for Peran to accept death.
“If you’re going to die anyway, why not gamble a bit?”
“Give your mana to me.”
Peran narrowed his eyes.
“…you’re not a Wizard.”
“That’s right. My mana room is broken.”
Having a broken mana room meant that even if he were to give him all of his mana, it would just seep out of him like pouring water into a broken cup.
But Lukas continued in a calm voice.

“8-star Wizards have the ability to embody their mana room. Not just in their own bodies, but outside it.”
It was not a very pleasant feeling, but this wasn’t the time to complain about that.
…He just accepted the mana.
For some reason, Peran became speechless as he beheld this scene.
The soaring mana and fluttering hair.
In truth, Lukas’ condition at that moment couldn’t be worse.
It wasn’t just because of the wound on his abdomen. His body, covered in bruises, his crippled arm, and leg, and his torn clothes made him look pitiful.
Nevertheless, Lukas, whose eyes were closed as he concentrated, had such an otherworldly aura that it took Peran’s breath away.
Finally, Lukas opened his eyes.
A bluish glint flickered in his pupils.
Peran had embodied his mana room in Lukas body and transferred the control of the mana within it to Lukas.
In other words, in this state, Lukas…
Had the ability to use magic.
If he could just cast a simple magic missile.
That would make him feel endlessly happy.
He was filled with familiarity and nostalgia.
After all, interfering with another person’s spell casting and casting spells on his own was completely different.
‘Thanks for trusting me. And thanks for not forgetting me.’
‘Thanks for not giving up and immersing yourself in magicology which allowed you to become an 8-star Wizard at such an unprecedented age.’
Although he only spoke one word, the meanings hidden within it were clear.
Lukas turned to look at Nix once again.
Since his mana room was artificial and temporary, it was dozens of times more difficult to draw upon the mana and create magic formulas. As Peran had said, the mana he had left was not a lot.
But that didn’t matter.
Lukas’ body slowly rose into the air.
Right. None of that mattered at all.
At that moment, there was only one thing that was important.
From now on, Lukas…
Lukas Trowman could use magic.
So he would take this opportunity to show Peran and Nix.
How the Great Mage fought.
