The Sorcery Academy: I am Invincible After Getting Treasure Chests Everyday - Chapter 10
Chapter 10: Reaper’s Smile
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
The internal competition of the Sacred Dragon Sorcery Academy was about to begin.
‘This was a competition for all the students in the academy to choose the students who would represent the Sacred Dragon Sorcery Academy to participate in the Five Great Sorcery Academy Competition.
All the students were eager to try.
Aside from one person, Linley Bart.
All he wanted to do now was to dig for treasure chests everywhere. The treasure chests he had dug up over the past few days had been very rewarding.
Originally, Linley had no intention of participating in the competition. Compared to digging treasure chests, participating in the competition was nothing.
But at some unknown point in time, someone had begun to spread the news that Linley had defeated Olin and Otto in the academy.
This shocked the entire school.
This useless student who relied on his father to get in actually defeated this pair of genius brothers.
Ever since they had been defeated by Linley Bart, they had become extremely nervous. The reason for this was because they had been frightened by Linley’s strength.
That day when Linley had used the Great Fireball spell, it had been seen by almost all the teachers and students of the school. However, most people believed that it was an experimental spell by the vice-principal or principal.
But when the teachers went to inquire, they found that the spell was not from the principal, which puzzled them.
Only after Olin and Otto had been defeated did everyone start to realize and think whether it was Linley who had cast the spell.
Some of the teachers didn’t dare to believe it, because Linley’s results were simply too poor. He was ignorant, incompetent, and didn’t have any talent in magic.
There was no reason for him to be able to use such a powerful spell.
Could it be that this hedonistic son had a separate persona?
He was actually very powerful? A sorcery genius that was hard to come by in a thousand years?
Although this possibility could not be ruled out, most people still did not believe it.
Thus, everyone was looking forward to seeing Linley’s true power.
The day of the competition soon arrived.
This time, the internal school tournament was held in a very grand manner. All the students of the school were gathered in the sorcery academy’s central square.
The entire academy would select a total of ten students to represent the academy at the Five Great Sorcery Academy Competition. Five of them were official members, and five were reserve members.
In other words, one had to be ranked in the top ten in the academy tournament to be able to participate in the Five Great Sorcery Academy Competition. Only the top five were qualified to become official representatives.
In the school square, the younger students were also very confident. Perhaps they were not as strong as the older students in terms of magic power, but this competition would have a special handicap for them.
This was also a rule of the Five Great Sorcery Academy Competition.
Everyone’s strength would be restricted and balanced to a certain extent before they could slowly recover to their original level over time.
Firstly, it was to ensure that the junior sorcerers had the chance to challenge the senior sorcerers.
Secondly, it was to prevent sorcerers from directly using high-level spells.
In the past, many sorcerers would gather all their magic power in a single attack to attack, so that they could win purely by the strength of their magic power.
Not only was this not enjoyable, but it was also prone to magic backlash.
Hence, with the magic-balance mechanism, everyone had to use magic to fight. Compared to pure magic power, this rule placed more importance on the techniques and mastery of one’s spells.
Under such rules, it was not impossible for the weak to defeat the strong.
However, this required extremely high proficiency in magic.
However, the upper-grade students would definitely have an advantage over the lower-grade students. This advantage would grow the longer the match was.
In the lower grades, the most famous person currently was Linley Bart.
Many pairs of eyes were looking at him. However, he seemed to be completely uninterested in the competition. His eyes kept looking left and right as if he was looking for something.
Did he drop something?
Even the principal on the podium noticed Linley Bart. This was because while all of the students were respectfully listening to him, only Linley Bart was constantly looking around distractedly.
The principal felt that this kid was too arrogant.
However, as the principal, it was not appropriate for him to pull a long face.
The competition was about to begin. Hopefully, Linley wouldn’t embarrass himself in the competition!
After the principal announced the start of the competition, countless magic arenas appeared in the square.
Those who were chosen to go on stage by the magic ball would have a magic duel until the final ten were decided, and then the finals would be held tomorrow.
Linley Bart was guided by the magic sphere to a magic arena. On that platform, there was already a person. Looking at the armband on his school uniform, he was a third-grade student who already had the strength of an Elementary Sorcerer.
In his eyes, Linley Bart was merely an apprentice magus.
In fact, Linley had no idea what level he had reached. This was because he didn’t follow the traditional teachings of magic and it was very hard for him to gauge his strength based on the normal standards.
Every month, the academy would arrange a test for the students. Those who passed the test would be able to advance to the next level. The higher the level, the more rights they had in the school.
This month’s magic test happened to be held at the same time as the school’s internal competition. Linley Bart didn’t have time to take the test.
Therefore, in the eyes of others, he was just a Trainee Apprentice Sorcerer.
“You’re the one who defeated Olin?” The third-year student also heard the rumors that were spreading around the academy. “I’m different from that kid. I won’t let you win. It’s not too late to surrender now.”
Linley Bart didn’t say anything. He only smiled.
“What are you laughing at?” The third-grade student was very puzzled. Could it be that this kid was stupid?
By the time the referee announced the start of the match, Linley Bart still had no intention of attacking. He was still smiling.
This made the third-grade student very puzzled, but after thinking for a while, he had thought that this kid Linley was provoking him!
The more he thought about it, the angrier he became. The more he thought about it, the more he felt that Linley’s smile was very despicable.
“Try laughing again!” The third-grade student was furious and was just about to launch an attack.
However, all of a sudden, he couldn’t move at all. A sense of fear welled up in his heart.
He felt his surroundings turn cold as if something was crawling into his head.
He suddenly felt that someone was standing behind him, but when he looked back, there was nothing.
When he turned back to look at Linley, he was so frightened that he began to scream…
He saw… The grim reaper!
Linley Bart was still smiling. This was his magic technique: Reaper’s Smile.
