The Book Eating Magician - chapter-353
The difficulty of moving through space varied according to the distance
from sky to land. Moving over one village or territory was something that
senior magicians could do without much difficulty, and elders with the
knack for it could travel from Mana-vil to the border.
However, the story was a bit different going on from there.
It was difficult to meet the amount of magic power required to travel to
another country with less than seven circles. Moreover, it wasn’t easy
to control magic power beyond their capabilities, even if they took the
needed time and prepared materials.
Even the current genius of space magic, Orta was exhausted when he
crossed borders on this continent.
‘…A success. Is it really this easy?’
However, Theodore had realized that his space movement was a complete
success the moment he spoke in the southern swamp.
There wasn’t the normal feeling of space movement. It was too quick as
he passed through space without any delays. This was despite the fact
that it was not short range space movement but long-distance travel
between two borders on the continent.
Transcendence—it was the name of those who acquired the authority to
intervene in time and space beyond the limitations of the lifeforms born
in this material world. There was no relation to aptitude or proficiency
in space magic. To put it simply, his eye level had changed.
If Orta’s magic eyes could dissect an area of space in his vision, then
Theodore could now close his eyes and figure out the spatial coordinates
of anywhere in the world and the way to get there. Maybe it had something
to do with Clipeus’ ‘control authority.’
‘No, it isn’t just that. Abracadabra—if this means what I
It sounded like a chant, but Theodore thought the phrase implied its own
ABRACADABRA (It will be done as you say)—at first glance, it looked no
different from an Order. However, if he dug deeper, he could see the
difference. An Order forced the phenomenon of the world to follow its
will, whereas Theodore’s enlightenment caused the world to transform to
express his will.
A fireball, a ball of fire, a flame sphere or just a pop of flames—the
name didn’t matter. He only needed to think what he meant and he could
use the magic. Ultima magic was the area in which he needed to pay
attention, but in the case of Simon Magus, he hadn’t muttered a single
word of a chant despite using a magic like Dimensional Leave.
Perhaps it was because Simon had reached the end of the road where he
could use magic just by thinking.
“Hah,” Theodore couldn’t help letting out a laugh.
As soon as he got caught up in the almighty feeling of having the world
under his feet, he realized the sky above him. Theodore didn’t have an
inferiority complex. This was natural for someone who bore the title of
the greatest magician of the Age of Mythology. He just thought it was
amazing that there was still so far for him to climb.
Thinking up to there, Theodore opened his eyes and saw Aquilo inside his
She greeted, “Oh, you woke up?”
The time Theodore had spent in understanding must’ve been long. He
looked around for the other two people and realized they had headed for
the bath and lounge respectively. They had tried to wait for him to wake
up but had no patience for it.
Theodore faced Aquilo with a strange look.
Aquilo laughed and grabbed his right arm. “What? Are you surprised that
“This is too much. I didn’t touch any of the interesting things while
waiting. Don’t I deserve some praise?”
“I think it is a natural courtesy to not touch…”
After all, she wasn’t a kid with junk food. Fortunately, those words
hadn’t flowed out of Theodore’s mouth. Over a period of five years,
his experiences had helped him automatically filter out what he could or
could not say. Thus, he laughed lightly and responded to her, “Well,
thank you for waiting. You are very kind.”
“K-Kind? Me…?” Aquilo, the evil dragon of the sea, gaped at him.
She had ruined harbors, led pirates and plundered all types of treasures
depending on her mood. The people of the sea would say ‘If the name of
Aquilo is heard, people will stop fishing and even a crying child will
Yet Theodore said Aquilo, the evil dragon, was kind? Aquilo was paralyzed
by the unexpected counterattack, and Theodore left the room. Her reason
returned when he asked a question, “So, are you going to keep following
“Ah, yes,” Aquilo replied one beat later. “Didn’t the lord say to
be well? I don’t know what it means.”

Aquilo smiled shamelessly from behind him. ‘Huhu, I actually know.
Isn’t this going to work better?’
There was no doubt that Aquilo had enjoyed many years of pleasure. The
lord had spoken without any great expectations, but Theodore Miller was a
prey she had personally pointed out. If things went well and it became a
male and female relationship… It would be fine to have one child.
This was an environment where dragons couldn’t be born naturally, but
transcendence could overcome this limitation. The desire that could no
longer be suppressed wriggled in Aquilo’s body.
‘It seems that he has a good relationship with the fireball… Since
ancient times, male have been creatures who can’t be satisfied with
just one person.’
It was the same for a virtuous hero. She held his arm tightly and
deliberately leaned her body in. Aquilo had enough experience in the
methods to defeat a man to write a book. Theodore had a hunch that Aquilo
was up to something and didn’t respond.
‘…Sigh, she doesn’t have any malice, but I’m tired of dealing
He would rather have an opponent he could easily hit with his power. When
it came to these seduction techniques, Aquilo was a type of opponent that
Theodore couldn’t handle. Unless he quickly pulled Veronica to his
side, this would continue indefinitely.
Then at that moment…
[Welcome back, Master,] Gladio greeted Theodore politely once he crossed
the threshold of the control room. Aquilo glanced over Gladio with
interested eyes, then she noticed it wasn’t a living creature and
However, Theodore asked him with a dark face, “Gladio, why are you in
the control room?”
[There is something I need to report to Master urgently.]
“I see. What is the importance?”
Theodore stiffened at the words. It was Grade 2, which could end up
changing to Grade 1. This meant it was a national disaster or worse. What
happened even though he had returned from the swamp faster than expected?
It was as if someone had been aiming for Theodore’s absence. Aquilo sat
down while Theodore listened to the report.
[It was just after Master left. There was a red warning light on the door
connected to the East Continent. There was an emergency, and support
troops were urgently requested. In Master’s absence, I notified the
heads of the other towers according to my behavior manual. I sent troops
to the East Continent with their help.]
“A wise decision. Which of the three did you send?”
Aside from Paragranum who couldn’t leave the capital, there were three
people available. Only Veronica, Orta, and Sylvia could cope with a red
signal. The red signal corresponding to the highest level of risk was
something only a master could deal with.
Gladio answered Theodore’s question immediately, [Red Tower Master
Veronica and Blue Tower Master Sylvia.]
In that case, Orta still remained. Theodore thought about the situation
quickly and turned away. He felt sorry for Aquilo, but there was no time
for a break.
“Give me the coordinates. I will meet the White Tower Master.”
Orta’s location was found within seconds in the central tower. Then
Theodore did what was necessary.
* * *
Following the peaceful reconciliation of the Northern Great War, the
people of Meltor, the magic kingdom, were able to achieve prosperity
faster than in any other time with many territories entering their hands.
Facilities buried in the capital were quickly distributed throughout the
kingdom, and new places to live quickly appeared in war-damaged places.
One of the most prominent figures behind this prosperity was White Tower
‘…Please come back soon, Chief Tower Master.’ How confused was Orta
when he first received the contact? He knew that the central tower had a
space gate leading to other parts of the continent, but it was possible
to move to the East Continent across the sea. He wanted to study and
understand the principles.
However, the man who introduced himself as the manager of the central
tower, a man who resembled the 7th Sword, had summoned the three tower
masters because of an emergency.
-There has been a big uproar near the space gate on the East Continent.
It is the red signal that Master designated as the highest risk. Sending
non-masters is meaningless. It is within your freedom to accept my
request. What would you like to do?
There was no emotion in Gladio’s voice, but his dull tone touched
Veronica, who had been bored. The incident was of the highest risk level
determined by the Theodore whom she valued, and she wanted to be helpful
to him. The problem was the number of people who could cross over with
-I will accompany Red Tower Master.
Sylvia stepped forward before Orta, who was deliberating the situation.
Her behavior couldn’t be controlled because she was also a tower
master. Additionally, Orta was the one who could best handle the space
door. In the end, Veronica and Sylvia left, while Orta remained in the
He looking impatiently at the space door where contact had been lost.
Then right when Orta let out a long sigh…
Flash! A man suddenly appeared in front of him.
Orta stared at the space with astonished eyes.
This was the magic kingdom, and there were thorough measures against
space magic inside the kingdom. There was a magic circle blocking the
movement of space in important facilities including the royal palace and
magic towers. However, in spite of these obstacles, there was an
It was the strongest magician on this continent, Theodore Miller.
“C-Chief Tower Master!” Orta immediately recognized Theodore and rose
to greet him.
Orta had desperately wanted Theodore’s return, but more than that, his
magician’s instincts stirred. Despite the success of the space
movement, the magic circle in this area was still fine. In other words,
Theodore had walked through it instead of destroying it.
It wasn’t just that. Orta’s eyes could see that Theodore looked
different from a while ago.
‘An area I can’t interfere in? There has been a change in the Chief
Orta’s ‘magic eyes’ had absolute power in spatial manipulation, yet
an area that Orta couldn’t intervene in was wrapped around Theodore’s
whole body. It was a wall that even the 2nd Sword, Zest Speitem,
wouldn’t be able to break through. Unfortunately, Theodore was the one
to speak first, “Please explain.”
“Ah! Of course, Chief Tower Master.” For the first time in his life,
Orta regretted that his position was lower than someone else and pushed
down the words he wanted to ask. Then he spoke an unbelievable sentence,
“Two days ago, the central empire collapsed.”
The largest empire in the East Continent had collapsed overnight.
