"Lei, " Adela said, squatting down to my level and touching my face.

I winced from the painful wounds inflicted upon me by Eien. Her hands let out a gentle glow, healing some of the bruises.

"You're amazing, " Adela said, staring at me with endearing eyes. She rose to her full height and walked over to Eien. Her eyes were even angrier than when we first met him. "And you! What do you think you're doing beating him like that?"

Eien took his seat on the front bench and grinned. "This case will depend on my actions, so just sit down and watch."

"It shouldn't be about you!" She grabbed him from the collar of his white shirt, pulling him up from his seat. "You were supposed to defend him!"

"Calm down Adela, " Wanikiya warned, wringing his hands in the air.

Eien slapped her hand away, causing her to drop him on the floor. She glared at her as he leapt to his feet. "Listen here, woman, don't you dare grab me like that again."

"Arg! I can't wait for the Mahoulympics to crush that smug smile from your face, you-"

Seven pillars of multicolored light filled the seats. "Silence!" the red veiled woman yelled. "We have made our decision."

"Lei Lan, you are to live, " the blue veiled man said, leaning back against his throne.

Adela and Wanikiya's mouths drew agape and the two quickly hugged me.

"Yes, you're not going to be burned at stake, " Wanikiya yelled.

I couldn't help but break out laughing from joy. "I'm... I'm going to live!"

"There is one condition though, " the white-veiled judge said. "Eien or someone he delegates the authority to, is to watch over you over the course of the next few months to make sure you don't turn into an out of control monster. You are to only use that power in emergencies to defend your school and comrades. That is, once you have learned how to master it."

"It can't be used in tournaments such as the upcoming Mahoulympics, " said an orange-veiled male judge. "Also, he must train you for said games in order to make sure that you have adequate control when the time comes."

All seven judges raised their hammers and pounded them against their podiums. "That is all. This case is dismissed, " they said as if they were one.

"Why must it be this guy?" Adela said, glaring at Eien.

"I'm the only one from our class who can slay him, should he lose control, " Eien said. "Well Iah and you might be able to but you're too kind on him, such hesitation would mean your death in such a case."

"Well I better get ready to return back to Wahkan, " Wanikiya said as we left the court. "I wish you could come home for summer break with us."

"Me too, " I said.

"I'll actually be handing over the authority to Yen, " Eien said. "She might not be able to kill you if the occasion comes down to it, but I can see her knocking some sense into you."

The trust this guy has in me... If he has this little trust in me, then why the heck did he beat me to a pulp? That plan could've backfired!

I took a deep breath and smiled. "That's good. I want to return home. Hey, Adela."

"Yes?"

"Do you know how many people died?"

She lowered her head. "In total there were two-thousand deaths, two hundred from students and one-thousand-eight-hundred from civilians. There's also the three hundred wounded students and four thousand civilians, " Adela said.

"So many?" I asked, tears streaming from my eyes. "Those hateful things."

"I know, " Eien said. He glanced back at his brother who was sitting at the back of the court room. "He lost Lucette to the darkness."

Boukayou stood up and walked towards us. "Lei, you hate the darkness as much as I do, don't you?"

"Yes

t's a tongue twister, " Kun said, snickering. "And even if it had fallen to us. Yen here would be the next one up. And if not her than me. I mean, we are all older than lil Lei. Not to mention stronger."

I narrowed my eyes at them. "I don't recall either of you making it as far as I did in the tournament among us Nine Petal Academy exchange students, " I mumbled.

Yen and Kun adverted their gazes.

"Hmph, thought so!"

Kun leaped at me and came a few inches from my neck. "You still got a long way to go, little brother. How can you allow your guard to drop?"

I grab and push his hand away. "I... You're right."

"You shouldn't go proud or you'll eventually find yourself in dire straits, " Yen said with a smug grin.

"That's true, " Adela said, stepping forward. "Mr. Rios, I thank you for offering Lei your help, but he can't accept it."

I smiled shyly. She was right. Relying on my grandfather would certain help, but it wouldn't build that sense of achievement that I wanted. Though perhaps rejecting his help would be prideful.

"Actually, I do want some help. At least in learning stronger wind magic. I want to climb up on my own, but I realize that perhaps I can't do it all alone."

Grandfather smiled. "Certainly."

"Me too!" Kun and Yen said.

"Sure. One of you three will grow up to be the next Magus Maximus, or Maxima in the case of Yen."

"Uh, you're forgetting about the mission?" Adela asked. "I'm fine with your grandfather training you, but we've already agreed to go with Eien on this mission."

I gasped. "Oh, right!"

Eien covered his mouth. "Idiot."

"Who are you calling an idiot? You want to fight? Bring it! I've been itching to fight you for months now!"

"You'll get the chance to in a few months, " Adela said, pulling me away. She narrowed her red eyes on the prince. "As will I."

Grandfather nodded. "The High Priestess of Xian is right, in a few weeks all of us will gather here again."

I glanced around at the various cranes suspended in the sky, putting the finishing touches on Rios' soon to be biggest stadium.

I couldn't allow what happened a week ago to discourage me. I was now a Novus Magus Secundus. Becoming Magus Maximus was one step closer. Wallowing on what I had become would be detrimental to achieving that goal.
