Just as I thought. Defeating Ricardo wasn't an issue. Even his Meteor Storm couldn't compare to mine. I'm sure I've had way more death matches than him though, so in a way, the match was a little unfair. He was still pouting as I left the house. Before I left though, Crowley taught me his secret arte, and I'm honestly a little nervous to use it. I've never used a dark spell before, and the spell itself is a little scary.
It's similar to Gravity Well, but it has a dense center of gravity rather than a field. It's rightfully named "Black Hole". Although the arte is on a far lesser scale than a true black hole, it's very destructive to anything caught in the small, dark radius around it. I practiced on a few large boulders in the area and it completely destroyed them, so it does have its own small scale tidal forces.
Ricardo was really mad that I got to learn the technique and he didn't. I did tell him that he should come to school with me next semester since it really helps improve your magic abilities, but he insisted that elves don't want anything to do with the outside world. It's a shame. I guess I'll always be better than him.
Well, I'd better get home. I'm sure Raine is really worried by now. Hopefully she'll forgive me when I show her this fruit I got for her. It's a straight shot from the entrance of Heimdall to the exit, so it's nearly impossible for me to get lost again.
