Magic System in a Parallel World
Chapter 86: Attack in Broad Daylight

"It's not about power or influence, father. You just don't have the spine to fight them. However, I am different. I don't care even if I lose. I will fight the Graves Family if they continue messing with me." Camille said with a stern expression on her face.

"If that's what you want to do, I won't stop you. After all, even though you bear the surname Light, you're no longer part of our family. I only wanted to look out for you as your father, but there's nothing I can do if you won't listen to me." Chairman Gerard shook his head.

"Go ahead and start a war with the Graves Family. However, my Light Family won't be there to help you."

"You speak as if the family has always been there for me. How laughable. I am leaving." Camille walked out of the office and disappeared from the Adventurers' Bureau.

About an hour after Camille left, the Graves Family showed up at the Adventurers' Bureau to demand the release of Marden Graves, the eldest son of their family.

The Adventurers' Bureau had no choice but to release Marden Graves, especially considering that his violation wasn't that serious to most people there.

"I heard that your daughter, Camille Light, was responsible for locking up my son! I demand an explanation, Chairman Gerard!" Marden Graves' mother, Elizabeth Graves, exclaimed.

"I don't need to explain anything to you. Your son's actions have violated the Adventurers' Bureau's code of conduct by abusing his authority. There have also been many reports that complained about his inappropriate behavior at work. Therefore, as the Chairman of the Adventurers' Bureau, I am removing Marden Graves from his position, effective immediately."

"You dare?!" Elizabeth pointed at him with a trembling hand.

"We have already released Marden. If you want to cause a scene, do so outside." Chairman Gerard said with a nonchalant expression.

"This isn't over, Gerard Light! You will be hearing from the Graves Family soon! Let's go!" Elizabeth said to her son before leaving the Adventurers' Bureau together.

Once they were outside, Marden said, "Mother, I—"

"You don't need to say anything. That vixen Camille Light is at fault here." Elizabeth sneered in disdain.

And she continued, "Let's go home first. We'll see what your father can do."

"Okay." Marden nodded.

They began approaching their car parked nearby.

However, before they could take two steps, Marden's eyes suddenly widened with shock, and he shouted while pushing his mother aside, "Watch out!"

"Marden?!" Elizabeth exclaimed as she was sent flying.

BOOM!

A black spear suddenly fell from the sky and landed right where Marden Graves was standing, causing a massive explosion.

The people outside the Adventurers' Bureau scattered like ants after the explosion.

"That was dark magic! Are we being attacked by vampires?!" Someone there shouted.

"That's impossible! Even if they somehow snuck into the city, they wouldn't attack the Adventurers' Bureau in broad daylight!"

The guards working in the Adventurers' Bureau rushed outside and prepared to defend the place, but a second attack did not come.

Once the smoke cleared up, Elizabeth rushed to her son, who was now lying unconscious inside a large crater.

"MARDEN!!!" Elizabeth jumped into the crater and checked Marden's condition.

'He's still alive!' She sighed in relief after feeling his heartbeat.

However, Marden was in a bad condition. His body was badly damaged with burn marks all over his body, looking as though he'd been struck by a truck at full speed before landing in a pit of fire.

"H-Healer! Who here is a healer?! Hurry up and heal my son!" Elizabeth began looking around frantically, almost as if she was being possessed by a demon.

"I-I am a healer. However, I don't think I have the capability to—"

"I don't care! Hurry up and start healing him!"

Sometime later, Chairman Gerard came outside with a frown in his face.

"What the hell happened here?! Who dares to attack our Adventurers' Bureau?!"

He couldn't believe it. This

"We don't know, Chairman! Someone suddenly attacked Marden!"

Chairman Gerard rushed to Marden and his mother's side.

"Gerard! This is all your fault! It must be that damned daughter of yours who assaulted my son!" Elizabeth started pointing fingers.

Chairman Gerard stared at Marden with a pondering gaze.

After a moment of silence, he spoke in a nonchalant voice, "The person who attacked your son used dark magic. My daughter uses light magic. I understand that you're angry, but you shouldn't throw around baseless accusations like that."

"Bullshit! She must have hired an assassin or something! She's the only one who has a motive!" Elizabeth roared.

"Hmph. Your son has a pretty bad reputation, and this is a well-known fact in the city. I wouldn't be surprised if there are many people out there who want to kill him. Anyways, I have already called for the police and the paramedics. I hope for the best for your son." Chairman Gerard said as he turned around.

"WAIT!!! You can use light magic as well! Why aren't you healing my son?!" Elizabeth suddenly shouted.

Chairman Gerard halted his movements and turned around to stare at her with a cold gaze, "You want me to help you right after threatening me? Who do you think you are? And unlike my daughter, I am not very experienced with healing magic. I won't be able to heal him even if I want to. Just wait for the paramedics and hope for the best. I still have to find the person responsible for this so I won't bother you any longer."

"You'll regret this, Gerard! I swear that you and your family will regret this!" Elizabeth stared at his disappearing back with intense killing intent in her gaze.

The police and paramedics arrived shortly after.

While the police spoke with the people there, the paramedics treated Marden. However, even a high-grade healing potion wasn't enough to completely heal him. Although it would make all of his external injuries disappear, his internal injuries will take much longer to heal, not to mention the shock he'd received from the attack had put him in a coma.

News of the attack quickly spread throughout the city, shocking everyone that heard it.

The Graves Family tried to make the Light Family responsible for the attack, but without any evidence to back up their claims, the accusations remained as nothing more than accusations.

As for the perpetrator responsible for the attack, they were still at large, and the chances of this person being caught was slim to none, as nobody had seen or knew the attacker.

The whole incident shook the whole city, and it would remain a hot topic for the next few days, but people eventually forgot about it, except for the Graves Family, who would continue to look for the culprit until they were found.

Several days later, Camille returned to Stellar City.

"Miss Camille! How was your trip? Did you figure out anything?" Leo was happy to see her return safely.

She nodded, "Yes, I found the person who was responsible for assigning you to the special mission."

"Really?! What happened to this person?!"

A mysterious smile appeared on Camille's face as she spoke, "I will tell you more about it once we sit down. Follow me."

"Okay." Leo nodded, and he followed her to the infirmary, where she would tell him about her findings.
