I’ll Become a Villainess That Will Go Down in History - Chapter 59
T/L: Righteous Flower of Evil [carnationscans.wordpress.com]
“So it seems like the magic academy’s festival was cancelled for this year,” Alan-Oniisama tells me at sword practice.
I’m so shocked, my arm freezes mid-swing.
The festival was cancelled? Is it because Liz-san and I weren’t able to become friends?
No….. That should be irrelevant. Since I’m not even a student at the academy, I’m sure the reason has nothing to do with me…..
“Al-Nii sent us an urgent magic communication a little while ago to let us know.”
I wonder if that was around the time when I was talking to the king.
But that aside, I forgot communication magic was a thing. That sounds super convenient!
“Did something happen?”
“Apparently Liz collapsed.”
Instead of Alan-Oniisama, this time Henry-Oniisama is the one who answers.
Wait, so maybe it really was my fault? Because I was acting so abominably towards her…..? But it hadn’t been my intention to torment her to the point of making her ill.
“Her magic seems to be spiraling out of control or something.”
“Her magic’s gone out of control?”
“Yeah. Apparently they still haven’t figured out the cause yet. And since it would be dangerous if something were to happen while the festival was underway, they decided to cancel it altogether.”
Why would her magic suddenly go haywire…..? I suppose it’s possible that it’s because she has extremely strong magical power… But then, why now?
As I’m already lost in thought, I decide to give up on the sword practice for today and head over to the library.
I carefully read through the whole magic encyclopedia again, but I still can’t find any mention of magic raging out of control.
Does that mean that there’ve been no such occurrences up until now?
I scan through the rest of the magic books that I have piled up around me.
In the first place, it looks like this is the first time that someone who is capable of using every type of magic has appeared. Not to mention that she’s a commoner…..
As I keep reading, this heading jumps out at me.
A description for darkness magic? Will it say something about how useless it is?
I turn the page.
『Darkness magic is based around destruction and healing.』
…..What’s that supposed to mean? Is it saying that our magic is inconsistent? Like it’s a contradiction?
I turn one more page.
Every other magic has pages and pages filled with descriptions, but darkness magic gets what? Not even a full page?
It really is the most useless element….. No, stop that. Let’s not think so negatively.
I should do some magic practice as a change of pace.
I read through the books for levels 16 through 20.
It seems like I’m going to reach level 20 unexpectedly easily. For it being the level requirement to attend the magic academy, it’s not that hard to get to.
Starting from level 16, I practice all of the new spells in order.
It really is easy. I’m raising my levels within minutes and I don’t feel any sort of resistance. Honestly, I find casting level 20 magic to be as natural as casting level 1.
…..And in no time at all, I’ve already fulfilled the required level to enter the academy.
Good going, me! I’m so amazing.
I’m gradually chipping away at the gap between the heroine’s level and mine. How great would it be if Liz-san just waited to get better until after I’m done…..
It might be cowardly of me to think so, but as long as Liz-san is out of commission, this is my chance to catch up to her. If I can level up like crazy during this time period, then by the time she opens her eyes again we’ll be on equal playing fields!
That would be a dream! But that plan is not without fault. It relies heavily on luck and my own abilities, so I guess I’ll just have to work hard in the meantime to make it a reality.
I pull down the book for level 21 and start to read.
T/N: Lol, it’s definitely Duke’s fault. He doesn’t want to partner with Liz for the festival so he made her faint with magic XD
OR, Liz is feeling inferior to Alicia and was pushing herself too hard to level up, thereby causing her magic to spiral out of control.
What do you guys think? Any fun theories?
Also! Minor Spoiler: for all you guys who wanted a change in POV…. Well, it’s not any of the boys, but we’ll be seeing Alicia’s father’s point of view in the next chapter 🙂
