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. ...

What did Seraphina do?

"Lady Astra, Young Master Vaan's friends have come to visit him."

The servant reported.

"Guess my moneybags are here."

Vaan spoke with an evil smile on his face.

"You really are acting like a thug," Astra commented with a small smile on her face.

"Hehe~ I am gonna bleed them dry."

"You know you can ask me if you need money, right?" Astra spoke.

"Of course, but why would I bother you if I can earn it on my own?"

"'Earn it' huh?" Astra raised her eyebrow.

"Don't mind the small details, mother." Vaan waved his hand as he stood up.

"Anyways, I'll go meet those idiots."

"Alright." Astra nodded.

"See you later, Mother."

Vaan smiled as he walked out of the room.

The moment he left, Astra formed Vaan's Advance Magic Circle again, however, just like before, 1 second later, the Circle trembled before breaking away.

"A Circle with 6 Inner Circles huh...

I don't even know what to say."

A small smile appeared on Astra's face.

On the other hand, Vaan who was walking with the servant was soon joined by Gabel.

"Young Master Vaan." Gabel greeted.

"Have they brought it?"

"Yes, Young Master." Gable nodded.

Vaan nodded, then, he walked into the Guest room and,

"My 5 good friends, it is so great to see you! How have you all been?"

Vaan questioned with a beaming smile on his face.

In front of him sat five men.

Asher, Alaric, Silas, Calder, and Thoren.

All 5 of them were Vaan's 'friends'. Friends who had once ganged up and attacked him. Now, however, they were all sitting in front of him, with their heads lowered, faces bruised, and sweat rolling down from their foreheads as they fidget their fingers.

"I heard you came bearing gifts?"

Vaan directly went to the topic.

"T-That's correct, Young Master Vaan. We know that our previous foolish actions have offended Young Master Vaan, so as a token of our apology, we brought a few things. It may not be much, however, we hope that Young Master Vaan accepts our apology and forgives us."

Asher stood up and spoke with a polite look on his face.

The other 4 quickly stood up and,

"Please be the bigger person and forgive our foolish mistakes, Young Master Vaan."

Saying those words, each one of them took out 1 pouch carrying 20 Elemental Stones.


A simple apology would have sufficed.

You didn't have to bring anything."

Vaan laughed out loud.

Gabel, on the other hand, had already moved and was taking away all the pouches. Not only that, he even went as far as counting all Elemental Stones inside the pouches right in front of everyone's eyes.

Vaan nodded his head in satisfaction.

Gabel was indeed a competent servant.

"There are a total of 100 Elemental Stones, Young Master Vaan," Gabel reported.

"Oho? 100 elementals stones? That's quite expensive. You 5 didn't have to go that far but since you have brought it, it would be rude of me to not accept this."

Vaan smiled brightly as he waved his hand. Gabel understood, he put all the Elemental Stones in one pouch and kept the pouch with him.

Asher and the other four just clenched their fists,

'We brought it!? It was you who threatened us, you thuglike bastard!!'

Of course, they couldn't say that out loud.

In front of Vaan, they could only smile politely and,

"Of course not, Young Master. One must be sincere while apologizing, else there is no meaning to it, is there?" Silas smiled politely.

"That is indeed correct. I like the way you think, that's why you five are my close friends."

"We are honored, Young Master Vaan."

The two parties smiled at each other.

"T-Then we shall take our leave, Young Master Vaan."

Asher spoke up.

"Yes, Young Master Vaan must be busy, we won't be taking any more of your time."

"We shall meet again, Young Master Vaan."

"Take care, Young Master Vaan."

They didn't wish to linger around this place for even a second longer.

Smiling and bowing their heads in front of this hateful bastard left a bad taste in their mouths. Not to mention how this bastard was shamelessly hoarding their money and was acting like they were the ones who gave it to them.

What's worse?

They were forced to comply with this stupid act!

The five just clenched their fists in frustration and anger as they walked away.



Vaan wasn't done yet.

The five of them turned around as they glanced at Vaan and noticed his fake smile was now gone.

"Why did you do it?"

"D-D-Did what, Young Master Vaan…?" Asher questioned with a nervous smile on his face.

"No matter what kind of person I was, there is no way cowards like you would have the guts to hit me to the point where I am bedridden, why did you do it?"

"W-We already a-apologized for our m-mista-"

"I am not asking if you apologized or not.

I am asking why you did it."

Vaan then looked into his 'friends' eyes with a threatening look on his face, then,

"It would be better if you answer me yourself because if I found out about it myself,

It wouldn't just end with a few Elemental Stones."

"I-It was Lady Seraphina!" Suddenly, Calder spoke up.

The other 4 glanced at him with horrified looks on their faces, however, Calder didn't care.

The current Young Master Vaan was a lot more scarier than that bitch. Not to mention he never liked that bitch from the beginning. He hated how he was forced to steal from his family treasury while that bitch who was behind all this got out of it scot-free.

Of course, his friends' worries weren't unfounded either, Vaan crazy was for Seraphina. Blaming Seraphina in front of Vaan was not a smart choice, however, for some reason, Calder felt that he should do it.

A voice inside him told him that it was the right decision,

Also, it was Young Master Vaan asking about it, he was only answering truthfully, Calder felt Young Master Vaan wouldn't blame him and act rashly, especially since they were inside the Vesta Family grounds.

"Go on."

Vaan simply glanced at him and with a scarily calm look on his face, he ordered.

"What did Seraphina do?"
