Earth's Greatest Magus

Chapter 1: Magus Academy

1 Magus Academy

85 BC Earth ’s Time

Something magical had happened to a 15-year-old boy named Emery.

A sharp ringing sound filled Emery ’s head as he opened his eyes. The moment the ringing disappeared he then noticed the blue sky and the colossal castle in front of him.

He was at a loss. This castle was bigger at least ten times than the royal castle in the kingdom he belonged to. Not only its size, its spiral shape connected to arcs and other buildings with stones painted white, which seemed to radiate some light, were things he had never seen before even from the books he had read in his father ’s library.

However, that wasn ’t only the strange thing. He swept his gaze from left to right and there were an uncountable number of young people that seemed to be the same age as him walking in rows toward a strange large tower.

Emery didn ’t move, rather he was unable to move. The last thing he could remember was fire, destruction and death. He muttered to himself, ”Am I dead? Father, where are you? ”

He was contemplating when a booming voice called out to him.

”You! Move! Follow the line! Don ’t stop! ”

Emery slightly jumped and when he turned around, the man wearing armor with intricate patterns of the color black and gold was pointing at him. The helmet also had a winged design, that covered the whole face except for the eyes, nose, and mouth, making a T shape. It looked so luxurious that even the armor of Emery ’s king used to wear in special ceremonies couldn ’t compare.

”I said, move! ”

Emery jumped again and started to walk following the person in front of him.

”What is happening? ” Emery said to himself.

And since Emery had a habit of speaking to himself, another young fellow on the line next to him called him.

”Heus te! ”

Emery twisted his neck toward the direction of the voice and saw another young boy. He pointed to himself with a confused look. Emery asked, ”Were you calling for me? ”

”Ita vero, te! ” The young boy cleared his throat and changed his words, ”Are you Briton? ”

Emery had recognized the words the young man used. It was latin. He had studied a bit of Latin, but it wasn ’t enough to make conversation with. Fortunately, the other boy spoke Emery ’s language with a strange accent.

”You ’re the first to understand what I ’m saying. D ’ye know what happened or where ’re we? ” asked the boy, with short brown hair.

”I… I don ’t know, ” said Emery, shaking his head.

It didn ’t take long before they arrived in front of the gigantic tower that seemed to stretch toward the sky, looking from its feet. There were like thousands of people wearing the luxurious armor he had seen before and the widest staircase he had ever seen going into the tower.

At the center of the stairs there were several men and women wearing gray robes. The man who had a long beard appeared to be the oldest stepped forward.

Emery felt like he was looking at a giant despite the old man being the same size as his father. And the old man stomped his staff, and a voice sounded in his mind.

”Welcome to the Magus Academy, ” the old man said, not moving his lips.

Tens of thousands of people reacted with surprise as they stared at the old man.

The man then continued, ”You are the chosen few from the thousands of human worlds. Whether you take hold or not of this opportunity, it is up to you. You are at Magus Academy, the peak of humanities ingenuity. Magic, science, and might is all available to those who seek it. ”

The purple tower behind the old man, slightly lit after he had said those words.

”We are giving all of you seven days to study whichever you desire and after that, you will return to your respective worlds. If you are worthy and able to meet our criterias, Magus Academy will again be open to you once more.
