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. ...

W-Was I just wasting your time all this while?

"You… you remember the Circle I used all those months ago?"

"W-Well… it was your first Magic Circle… so…"

Elara replied with a slight blush on her face.

Hearing her response, Vaan was taken aback, then, however, he just smiled.

"I am happy that you do."

Vaan spoke.

A small smile appeared on Elara's face, then suddenly, she shook her head and the air around her changed again,

"A-Anyways, as I was saying, your Magic Circle changed."

"I did it myself. Think of it as a proof that I changed.

I won't act like the previous Vaan did."

Vaan replied.

Elara looked into Vaan's eyes for a while, then,

"-L-Let's move on.

You have already mastered how to conjure your flames, now you probably wish to learn how to move the flames and then eventually use it to attack your opponent, right?"

She questioned.

Vaan knew he couldn't just win her trust that easily, just the fact that she was willing to help him was enough for him right now.

He would take it slow.

"Yes, that is correct." Vaan nodded.

Elara nodded in understandning. Then, she started.

"Moving the Flames and attacking your opponent isn't much different than conjuring the flames. The concept is simple, like when conjuring the flames, the Language of Magic you use means [Conjure Flame], if you want your fire to move, you simply need to use the Language of Magic that means, [Conjure Flame that moves.]

It is similar to conjuring Flames of different shapes."

Elara spoke.

Then, she raised her hand, a Magic Circle formed, and soon, a spike made of Flames formed on top of her hand.

"You can actually try conjuring Flames with different shapes to get the hang of it," Elara spoke as the Fire in her hands continued to change the shape. From Spike, to Dagger, to Rope, to Fireball.

Seeing this, Vaan couldn't help but raise his eyebrows in amazement. What Elara just did, it was definitely not something simple. Vaan knew he could conjure Flames in different shapes if after some time, however, what Elara was doing was completely different.

Summoning Flames in different shapes is completely different than changing its shape again and again without needing to cast the spell again.

The second one was much more difficult than the first.

"Once you are comfortable, you can conjure flames that can move."

Elara spoke as the flames in her hand started moving up and down.

"Then, things get a little complicated, the Language of Magic you use here is [Conjure Fireball that shoots in the direction my palm points at]."

Elara spoke as she straitened her hand and pointed at the wall in the front. She drew new Magic Patterns into the circle and soon, the Fireball she conjured shot towards the wall and,


An explosion occurred.

There was a 5 cm deep hole in the wall along with the burned marks on the outside.

Vaan was taken aback.

The Spell was powerful.

Much stronger than a pistol's damage.

Of course, it is much slower than the guns, but Vaan had accepted that already.

Also, it was only a 1st Circle Spell.

Vaan didn't know much, however, he remembered how his mother had sealed his movement without any effort that day. She cast a complicated spell like that within an instant, so Vaan was sure that this issue of speed would be solved as he grows.

Anyways, while Vaan was thinking all this, he noticed that the Wall was suddenly reverting back to its original form.

'So this is the 'Restoration' the Magic Training Room is famous for.'

Thinking that Vaan had enough time for himself, Elara continued,

"The more advanced version of this would be [Conjure Fireball that first shoots forward, then moves right once more Mana is injected into the Circle].

Then the last and the most advanced version would be,

[Conjure Fireball that changes its direction according to the amount of Mana injected into the Circle]

This way, you can change the direction of your fireball at your will.

This is also commonly known as the complete Fireball Spell.

A Spell that is a sign of a peak 1st Circle Mage.

Since that is the longest 'command' a 1st Circle Mage can draw inside his Magic Circle.

Of course, right now, we are not talking about the role of 'Inner Circles'.

That is a more advanced topic and mages tend to ignore the basics after they learn using Inner Circles since they feel it is an easy way out, so to avoid that, we will talk about them once you master this.

And yes, the trick I did before where I continuously changed the shape of flames, I did it using Inner Circles, so Young Master Vaan doesn't have to rack his brain over it."

Hearing Elara's words, Vaan scratched the back of his head.

'She is sharp.'

He thought but then, he shook his head to clear his mind.

He would try it on his own now.

Seeing that he had started focusing, Elara stepped back and,

"Do not take any pressure on your mind, take it slow, first focus on the shapes, the Magic Pattern shouldn't be much different from conjuring the Flames, if you want, I can show you my Magic Patterns for reference, wait a while, I will draw those patterns in a bo-"


While Elara was speaking all this, she heard an explosion.

She opened her eyes and realized that Vaan had unleashed his Fire spell toward the wall.


Her eyes widened in surprise.

"W-Was I just wasting your time all this while? Y-Young Master Vaan already knew the basic theory of shooting a spell... You should have stopped me if that was the case…"

"Huh? What do you mean? I only managed to succeed because you made it so simple.

I never tried linking the Language of Magic with what I wanted, I was comparing it with what the books showed and created my own pattern after many trials and errors.

However, now that I linked my Pattern with words like [Conjure Flames], things become a lot simpler.

These Magic Patterns are just what they say they are, the Language of Magic.

I just need to link certain words with certain magic patterns, and once I combine that,

I can cast any spell!"

Vaan spoke with an excited smile on his face.

Please tell me if the explanation is clear or not,

I am planning on writing an AUX chapter to explain how a spell works, from start to finish.

I was thinking of waiting for a while, but if the explanation in this chapter is very unclear, just tell me, and I will write the AUX chapter.
