Magic's Return: I Can See The Spirits

The God of Magic stopped blessing his believers. The Tower of Magic, where the mages gathered and worshiped him was destroyed. Magic Fell. The surviving Mages were looked down upon by the rest of the world. Normal Mages, that is. The Mages from the Strongest Magic Family, the Vesta Family, were an exception. For 5000 years, the Vesta Family continued to produce exceptional Mages that were strong enough to resist other forces which came after their family heritage and treasures even without the Blessing of the God of Magic. Now, however, the Vesta Family found themselves in a difficult situation where they didn’t have a single capable heir. That was until, Christopher Davis, an underworld Gang Leader, transmigrates into the body of Vaan Astra Vesta, a well-known pushover and the ‘waste’ of the Vesta Family. Christopher, now Vaan, soon realized that he could see otherworldly magic spirits with knowledge so vast that the Magic books that the Vesta Family treasured for 5000 years were nothing in comparison. That, combined with Vaan’s own God-like Talent, The ‘Hope’ was born. A prodigy strong enough to not only protect the Vesta Family and its treasures, A prodigy who will restore Magic to its former glory was born. “Haa!? Who da fuck said a Mage can’t use fists!? That crab-like face of yours, I’ll punch it till it is deformed into something better looking!” And of course, Christopher’s gangster-like tendencies won’t just disappear. ...

Flamey, we did it!


Right as Vaan begin engraving the Pattern into the Elemental Stone, Flamey appeared.

"Are you interested in this?"

Vaan questioned with a smile on his face.


Flamey nodded her little head.

Then, she pointed at the used Elemental Stone that Vaan was engraving on.

Vaan glanced at the Elemental Stone and saw that Flamey had created a huge 'X' mark, he also noticed that she had drawn an 'arrow' on the unused Elemental Stone.

"Are you telling me that I have to use this Elemental Stone?" Vaan chuckled.

"Krii." Little Flamey nodded.

"I know that, Flamey. I am just practicing on it."

Vaan replied with a smile, Flamey, however, shook her head,


She exclaimed, then, Vaan noticed Flames forming patterns around the unused Elemental Stones.

Just like Flamey, her flames didn't have any effect on any object, therefore, other than Vaan being able to see this pattern, there was no use to it.

Vaan then noticed something…

Flamey had not created patterns on a single Elemental Stone…

She had drawn patterns on 2 Elemental Stones simultaneously. Vaan finally understood what the little fairy was trying to say,

"Are you saying that I just need to trace this pattern?"

"Krrrii~" Flamey nodded again.

"On just 2 Elemental Stones…? But the book says I need 5 Elemental Stones for Ignispike Pursuit…" Vaan spoke with a frown.

"Krrriii Kriiiiiiiiiii."

With a pout on her face, Flamey pointed at the book, her flames surrounded the book as if she was trying to burn it, but of course, nothing happened to the book.

"Heh, are you saying I should burn the book and listen to you?"

"Krrii. Krri."

Flamey nodded.

The little Flamey was completely looking down on the book written by a 7th Circle Mage.

"Hahaha." Vaan laughed out loud.

"Alright then, let's keep the book aside for now. I will draw your magic patterns on the stones, but can you draw these patterns on these used Elemental Stones first? I need to practice engraving on them because I am still not confident about it."


Flamey nodded. Then, she drew Flames around the used Elemental Stones and Vaan started engraving the pattern by tracing Flamey's flames.

Honestly, if it was before, he would have thought that Flamey was just joking around, even though he was from the Vesta Family, he couldn't use 2 Elemental Stones just to test out a theory, especially when it was not his own theory.

However, Flamey was someone who drew a revolutionary Magic Circle that increased a Mage's strength by more than 50% like it was nothing.

Vaan had already realized long ago that she wasn't just a normal cute little friend, she was insanely knowledgeable. Vaan knew that when it came to matters related to magic, he could trust this little fellow.

With this thought in his mind, Vaan shifted his attention to engraving the Magic Pattern.

It wasn't a difficult process, a mage only needed to infuse his mana into the Engraving Pen and use constant strength to engrave the pattern, after some practice, it wasn't much different than simply drawing on the pattern.

And with Flamey's flames as a guide, the process was even simpler for Vaan, he simply needed to make sure he used constant strength. It was something that needed patience, which admittedly, was Vaan's weak factor, however, after practicing it for around an hour,

Vaan finally managed to engrave patterns onto the first Elemental Stone.

"Flamey, we did it!" He exclaimed.


Flamey flew in circles with an excited look on her face, celebrating together with Vaan.

"Then should we engrave the other pattern?" He questioned.

"Krrrii." Flamey nodded as she drew the patterns using her flames. Vaan traced her patterns, this time, since he had finally learned how to keep applying constant force, the process was a lot simpler and he completed it in 10 minutes.

He then drew the two patterns again just to gain confidence.

This continued for another hour, and then Vaan finally decided to use the actual Elemental Stones.

Flamey was with him with every step with a focused look on her cute face. Vaan then started engraving the patterns, 15 minutes later, he finally engraved the two patterns, and then,


The two Elemental Stones turned red.


Flamey jumped in excitement.

A small smile appeared on Vaan's face as well.

His effort bore fruit.

However, it still wasn't over. He needed to test this out.

Unable to contain his excitement, Vaan rushed towards his mother's room.

"Mother!" He spoke as he walked into his mother's room.

Inside, he saw Gabel standing in front of his mother, Vaan finally came back to his senses and bowed his head,

"I apologize for barging in like this, Mother. I was a little too excited."

Astra frowned but then,

"What is it?" She questioned.

Vaan glanced at Gabel and then,

"I wish to talk to you, alone."

Astra glanced at Gabel and nodded. Gabel nodded back and quickly turned around. He glanced at Vaan with a nervous look on his face, scared that Young Master Vaan saw him reporting to his mother and might punish him later.

Vaan, however, ignored him, he already knew.

Once Gabel left,

"What made you so excited that you barged into your mother's room like this, huh?" Astra questioned with a small smile on her face.

Vaan didn't say anything, he simply extended his hands, showing 2 red-colored Elemental Stones.

"An Instant Spell."

Astra recognized it the moment her eyes fell on it.

"What spell is it?" She questioned with a curious look on her face.

"Ignispike Pursuit," Vaan replied, and the moment she heard his reply, Astra narrowed her eyes.

"Ignispike Pursuit needs 5 Elemental Stones, Vaan. Some mages did manage to reduce the number of required stones to 4, but it wasn't perfect and the spell's strength was affected."

"That is why I said I wanted to talk to you alone, your son is a genius, remember?" Vaan replied with a smile on his face.

"I need to use the Magic Training Room to test it out."

Vaan seemed excited and why would he not be?

It was a great discovery after all, if this worked, not only his, but the entire Vesta Family's strength would rise.

And Astra, who understood the weight of this matter, ordered, "Follow me."
