Chapter 35:

Ch 35 - The Manager

St Chaos Healer

As soon as the glass marble shattered there was a tiny spark of light.Bookmark here

Which only appeared for like a second and disappeared.Bookmark here

Lightning maniac dropped his shoulders,Bookmark here

“You really had to use the call orb for this. So what if that brat belonged to a high-class society, I am nobility. You don’t think you can punish me for that, do you?”Bookmark here

The disciplinary guy let out a sigh,Bookmark here

“Well, I shall let the wagon manager handle this matter. I already contacted that brat’s wagon manager and he’ll appear soon enough.”Bookmark here

“Darn it!” scowled lightning maniac as he laid on the floor with the restraining chains.Bookmark here

“I hope Uncle William shows up. Only he is able to understand me, the rest of the wagon managers are just stuck up old farts.”Bookmark here

This dude literally had no remorse whatsoever.Bookmark here

Whoever comes from using that orb, I sure hope to give this freak a bit of a lesson.Bookmark here

I should just get moving, I don’t wanna drag myself in whatever happens next. I don’t think anything good will come out of this anyway. I should make my escape.Bookmark here

So I just turned around and started walking away.Bookmark here

But before I could take another step,Bookmark here

“Hey kid, where do you think you are going?” asked the disciplinary guy.Bookmark here

Goddammit.Bookmark here

I turned around and smiled innocently,Bookmark here

“I’m heading back to my room. I am not feeling so good, so I thought I should go get rest-”Bookmark here

“Stay right there. The wagon manager is on the way and you are a potential witness that could convey what happened here. The rest of your friends are still in a state of trauma and won’t be much help. You are the only one who is calm despite what you have gone through which is kinda weird but that is none of my business.”Bookmark here

I stayed quiet and just waited there as instructed.
Meanwhile, the disciplinary guy took out a vile of magic potion and poured it into James’s mouth. He then took out a bunch of herbs and started grinding them together in a bowl. Recreating a thick green paste which he then applied to the amputated stump of his arms.Bookmark here

“Hey! Is it me or does this corridor smell like piss? Can’t I move to a different location” asked the tied-up maniac laying on the floor.Bookmark here

The disciplinary guy didn’t answer and stayed quiet.Bookmark here

Now that he mentioned the air smells so bad because a bunch of brats soiled their pants.Bookmark here

I almost forgot all about them, it really does stink here.Bookmark here

I just hope we get over this soon and the wagon manager is kind enough to overlook what happened.

I am still worried about how my parents will react once they come to know what happened here. I am sure they will just go ahead and pick a fight with the entire ceremony organizers of the railway department.Bookmark here

Shit, I shouldn’t have agreed to follow James and his lackeys.

Bookmark here

After waiting for a few minutes a figure appeared rushing towards the sight.Bookmark here

He was a man with graying hair with a beard running towards us in a hurry.Bookmark here

Is that the wagon manager?Bookmark here

Although he looked quite different from the wagon manager that was assigned to our wagon.Bookmark here

The old man then reached the spot and first he saw the maniac Rayzer in chains.Bookmark here

Meanwhile, even Rayzer eyes widened,Bookmark here

“Uncle William! Thank god that you are here. Could you please instruct this disciplinary dog to get rid of these chains?”Bookmark here

The wagon manager happened to be William who I presume was quite close to this maniac.Bookmark here

Uncle William quickly looked around to see the wounded James, the destroyed corridor, and other candidates traumatized. His brows frowned as if he could tell what happened here.Bookmark here

With a sigh,Bookmark here

“Rayzer, I had told you to refrain from giving me trouble. For once in your life, couldn’t have you controlled your outburst.”Bookmark here

William averted his gaze,Bookmark here

“I did my best to behave until a peasant tried touching me with his nasty hands.”Bookmark here

Uncle William’s face looked pale,Bookmark here

“If you weren’t my brother’s son, I would have let you rot in a jail cellar for the rest of your life. Didn’t I specifically tell you not to be violent with the other candidates? You even promised me that you will behave so I recommended you as a trainee to use the time chamber. But now look what mess you have created.”Bookmark here

What the fuck is going on here.Bookmark here

The savior used the call orb to recall a wagon manager, and I thought for sure the maniac would be getting the beating of the lifetime for his actions.Bookmark here

But here the manager is very close to this maniac and instead of reprimanding him, he was giving him a pep talk instead.Bookmark here

It’s not like he broke a precious vase at home that you are giving him an earful.Bookmark here

That maniac has severed the arms of a candidate and the rest of us were almost about to be killed alongside him. What I expected was a whooping ass and make this maniac feel a little remorseful through some punishment. Bookmark here

“One day I will surely lose my job trying to save your skin. Only this one time will I help you out, only this once, okay?” said Uncle William.Bookmark here

“Thanks, Uncle William, you are the best!” thanked the lightning maniac.Bookmark here

“Stop sweet-talking with me. You know how hard it is to clean up your mess.” He then turned to the disciplinary guy, “Good work stopping my idiot nephew. Now remove those chains, I don’t want him to get cramps at such young age.”Bookmark here

Is that it?
He is clear of all his crimes just like that.Bookmark here

Out of all wagon managers, this disciplinary guy had to call out the manager which is related to this maniac. Is that dumb luck or did he do that purposely?

But to our surprise, the disciplinary guy didn’t move an inch.Bookmark here

The old fart William was a bit surprised,Bookmark here

“I said to free my nephew from the chains. Now get on with it at once.”Bookmark here

The disciplinary guy lowered his head,Bookmark here

“I am sorry but I am not allowed to do that.”Bookmark here

Hearing that old fart William frowned.Bookmark here

“What do you mean you can’t do that! My uncle ordered you to do so, and you must obey.” interrupted the maniac.Bookmark here

“Sir, your nephew, Rayzer Maverick attacked a candidate belonging to the gold class passenger. That candidate is on the verge of dying. Not only that, your nephew was about to kill the rest of his friends, if I hadn’t stopped in time.” replied the disciplinary guy.Bookmark here

Hearing that old fart William glared at Rayzer,
“Out of all people, you had to target that kid who belonged to the golden ticket holders. Inviting you was really a poor decision on my behalf. This will surely give that elite society committee another reason to spark trouble with us. What have you done Rayzer.”Bookmark here

Rayzer lowered his head,Bookmark here

“Geez. I screwed up, I get it. Please let go this one time, come on uncle. Please.”Bookmark here

“If you weren’t my nephew I would have never helped you out.”Bookmark here

“I am sorry. This will be the last time, I swear!”Bookmark here

“Geez. What will I do.” Uncle William let out a sigh and then looked at the disciplinary guy,Bookmark here

“Let him go. What’s done is done. No point in punishing the poor lad now.”Bookmark here

The heck is wrong with that old fart.Bookmark here

His nephew just killed a boy and was about to murder more such people along with him. And he says no point in punishing this man. For fuck sake, this guy should be tortured and get him to a mental hospital as soon as possible.Bookmark here

Not to mention they openly mention that the gold class ticket holders are treated much nicely. They don’t even try to hide that fact. The old fart was hoping one of us lowly peasant candidates should have taken the place of James. They would have an easy time then.Bookmark here

The disciplinary guy was kinda cool enough to help us out and even stand up for that maniac’s sin. I guess nothing can be done if that old fart William wants to free that maniac.Bookmark here

There is little to no concern about the well-being of the local people aboard this train.
Are all nobles such heartless and selfish bastards like these two?Bookmark here

But to our surprise, the disciplinary guy stood still and motionless.
He didn’t intend to free the maniac for some reason.Bookmark here

William brows narrowed,Bookmark here

“I said to free him this instant of these chains.”Bookmark here

The disciplinary guy lowered his head,Bookmark here

“Sorry Sir, but I can’t do that. Your son violated the 8th, 13th, and 42nd rules of conduct of a rail guard. He’s liable to the destruction of the ceremony train’s property, attempt to murder the young candidates as well as beating a candidate of the gold ticket holder to the brink of death. According to the clauses of the ceremony train rule book, your nephew could be seriously punished-”Bookmark here

“You! How dare you disobey your superior officer.” All of a sudden William got angry.
His eyes started glowing and his hair started glowing.Bookmark here

Don’t tell me there’s a brawl about to break between an old fart and ninja disciplinary dude.

The disciplinary guy shrugged his shoulder,Bookmark here

“Sorry but I am just a lowly disciplinary officer and I just follow the rules-”Bookmark here

“What I say is the rules, do you get it?” shouted William angrily.Bookmark here

Even his sound boomed in the corridor like beating drums.Bookmark here

The disciplinary guy needs to chain down this old fart along with his nephew.Bookmark here

Sadly he could only grit his teeth and lower his head.Bookmark here

“How dare you disobey! Uncle, you should give a thrashing and straighten up the disciplinary dogs. They have forgotten their place.” said Rayzer.Bookmark here

Uncle William stepped forward approaching the disciplinary guy,Bookmark here

“I guess you won’t obey me.”Bookmark here

For some reason, the disciplinary guy just lowered his head.
Fuck! Go whoop that old fart’s ass. He ain’t shit in front of your ninja skills.Bookmark here

I was cheering for that disciplinary guy for some reason.Bookmark here

William’s arm shined for some reason but unlike William who had electricity, he gave off a different power. For some reason, the disciplinary guy didn’t even resist! Why!Bookmark here

Just when William was about to touch him with his glowing arm, the ceiling of the roof suddenly started shifting.Bookmark here

What?Bookmark here

The ceiling shuffled like a bunch of Jenga puzzles that came unwinding.Bookmark here

Even old fart William who was acting high and mighty saw this was shocked.Bookmark here

In the next second the entire ceiling started collapsing upwards and a hole started forming in the center.Bookmark here

William frowned and glanced at the disciplinary guy with anger,Bookmark here

“You little…!”Bookmark here

“Please forgive me.” replied the disciplinary guy while scratching his head.Bookmark here

Before I could think what was going on, a voice suddenly echoed.Bookmark here

“I never knew managers now were in charge of making rules aboard my train. Could you please elaborate what you mean by that, Mr. William Beringe Maverick?”Bookmark here

All of a sudden the disciplinary guy got on his knees, the old fart William also followed suit.Bookmark here

“You surely jest, my lady. What do you mean by that, we would never do such a thing. Hehe.” said William as the sweats bucket loads from his brows.Bookmark here

He really changed back to his usual self.
No more glowing eyes or arms.Bookmark here

All of a sudden a beautiful blonde woman descended from that hole. Unlike the rest of the guards wearing black, she wore a white frock coat and in her hand, she held a scepter with a golden jewel at the end.Bookmark here

As soon as she landed on the floor, the hole in the ceiling started disappearing, and the ceiling started rebuilding in the same way as before. It only took a few seconds to get the ceiling fixed.Bookmark here

William laughed,Bookmark here

“Greetings my lady. We are blessed to be in your presence but why did you bother yourself to come here. Here’s just a minor accident that can be fixed with my-”Bookmark here

“Now you have the audacity to tell me what to do, what not to do on my own train, William? So when were you promoted to order me around, huh?” glared at the lady coldly.Bookmark here

William just gulped his own saliva,Bookmark here

“I-I don’t mean like that my lady!”Bookmark here

He lowered his head and glared at the disciplinary guy who was dodging his stares.Bookmark here

What the heck is going on?
Is this lady the final boss of this train or something?Bookmark here

I have no fucking clue what’s going on at this point.Bookmark here
