Under the sneering and constant teasing of Phantom Lord magicians, Noah proceeded through without regards to them and stood before the ritual platform. There’s no hint of agitation or anything of the like, only an eerie calmness.
Perhaps it’s because of that, the surrounding became quiet and they all shut their yappers and stopped laughing.
Seeing the small figure standing before him and the sudden heavy silence, Mogria’s became more and more upset. It led to him not being able to hold himself back from jabbing at Laxus with a question.
“One person? Has Fairy Tail decided to give up on this assignment?”
When he first heard Fairy Tail sent out only 3 people, he thought that this immature brats must have been here for formality’s sake, he grinned at the sheer foolishness of their undertaking, and now only Noah is going up?
Laxus gave a sideglance at Mogria, his malevolent face is all but gone and he can’t muster the energy to even talk with the fool. He simply kept his eyes on Noah and clenched his fist.
“Let’s see why gramps won’t stop talking about his magic power, how strong it is….”
Erza is also doing the same thing.
She’s different in the sense that she has personally seen it in action. Plus, she knows that the main participant this time would be Noah and that the two of them are more like bodyguard then quest party member. In other words, she has no doubts in her mind that Noah would finish this quest.
What she’s really curious to find out though, is whether or not the magic power she has seen yesterday on the riverside is the limit of his power!
And so, in that place where each person has a different thought and no one made so much as a squeak,Noah breathed in deeply and calmed down the nervousness that cannot be seen by others. Finally, he stretched out his hands.
His small hands reached ritual platform and pressing down on it he closed his eyes to draw attention to his inner body, churning and guiding the enormous magic power bending the sea of magic power.
The air surrounding them started trembling as the gargantuan magic power gushed out and reached for the sky in a pillar of light growing in intensity.
With a force that could shake space itself the magic power has done more than shock the magicians of phantom lord, Mogria’s pupils shrunk, Laxus and the mentally prepared Erza tensed up when they saw the sight, their eyes were filled with sheer shock.
If one were to talk in term of magic power, Noah definitely had the right to scoff at any one on this continent.
Laxus who has seen his grandpa’s terrifying magic power can testify that Noah’s could rival him for sure!
And Makarov is a ten saint, a super magician that can rank in the top 10.
It’s just magic power but to think he could surpass Makarov in this aspect at an age of merely 11, he can’t deal with this.
What about the phantom lord guild members, they are all spacing out over the corner there, they can’t react to this situation.
Controlling the magic power he moved this fuck ton of amount and as if holding a rein on it , he channeled it into the crystal ball like platform.
The stone emitted brilliant rays of light and illuminated every corner of that place.
The intensity of that light show hurt their eyes so they had to shield against it with their hands.
A lot of the mooks cried out like pansies and the whole place turned chaotic.
After a period of time the bright light receded and the group of people slowly recovered their blinded field of vision.
When they cautiously opened their eyes what appeared before them is a sudden change.
The light they thought receded away did not completely disappear, it diminished to a certain extent and remained constant like a magic lamp they emitted soft glow illuminating every person present.
The light source seemed to be coming from the bottom of the lake of rituals which used to be perfectly clear.
The stone ball changed into a true crystal ball and emitted a prismatic light, it is as bright as a flash bulb and radiant like no other.
Against this fantastic scenery everyone stayed silent and lost themselves, they couldn’t recover their senses.
It’s not just because of the scenery, it’s the developments that led here that made their mind go blank and unable to fuction as per normal.
Opening his eyes he breathed a sigh of relief, noticing the change from before he felt joy at being able operate his magic power successfully in a practical scale for the first time. He clenched his fist at the thought of its implication.
Luckily for him there’s no leak this time.
Only he would know how dangerous the job was.
He can’t control every part of his magic power.
The fuck ton they saw just now could easily have breached his control and created another instance of magic power rampage.
When that happens, it’s not just the safety of all those present but perhaps even the holy ground of the council, the lake of rituals would be a thing of history.
That would be problematic.
It’s fortunate that before he reached the threshold of his control the lake of ritual activated, he dodged the bullet this time.
He shortcircuited the brains of the people present when he didn’t exhibit a slight hint of fatigue at having exerted such an amount of magic power, look at the prick, he’s all smiley and beaming.
Turning to the middle aged man he smiled.
“With this our quest is complete yes?”
Returning to his senses the men forcibly laughed with sweat dripping down his face.
“Ye… yes.. it’s complete…”
“Then, about our reward…”
He turned into a yesman.
“We will pay it asap! Asap!”
He nodded in satisfaction and glanced at the phantom lord members before grinning.
“He thought this job needs 3 people but who would have thought one person finished it, seems like my guild master do make mistakes from time to time…”
Leaving this line behind Noah walked out of the pavilion without turning hishead back.
Guffawing Laxus walked out in tow with Erza who had the corner of her lips raised.
What’s left is the mooks at a loss of what to do and a Mogria who had a very vicious expression on his face.
