Before a few minutes of meaningless talk with that wyrm, Noctis felt his forces leave him, until finally, he gave in to exhaustion.

The next thing he knew was that he was in a kind of energy bubble, similar to his gift, but on a dark, decayed purple color. In addition, it was translucent. Through this, he could see a seven-headed drake that he immediately recognized as Nighishad. Not that he had seen him before, but he fit perfectly with the description they gave of him. In fact, he was one of his preys, the second headmaster of the Wyynhaist College, which meant he was inside the school.
The Drake, with a robust body and dark scales such as Noctis own, when he realized that he had awakened, spoke to him.

— Sometimes I think that Meselinargus can show a great sense of irony. — The drake said.
30Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkbBtaD0zK8
The lizard did not respond.
30Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡmRC6tSrp65
— You should be grateful to your captor to be alive. The poor girl really believes that saving you will make a difference. If it had been up to me, I would have eaten you as soon as I had the chance.
30Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡlpBKgGnkY7
Again, Noctis did not respond.
30Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡDiifLtSM2D
— Anyway, I'll keep you there until Kaldoria returns from her trip, and then we'll decide what to do with you, I'll tell you that it will not be beautiful at all. Until then, I'm afraid I'll have to keep you in top condition.
30Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡUpvxwZpYov
— Seems good for me. —The lizard said, his voice still tired.
30Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ3JVFtblRwj
— But in compensation, I'm afraid I have a condition.
30Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡYaChqnKj9M
Noctis could not do anything but grunt.
30Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡW4csBJr0HP
—You see, lately I'm getting very bored, so I'll give you a couple of options. Either you give me some conversation, or I'll have to start practicing my gift with you.
30Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡwKyrp2DLT9
The prisoner only took a moment to realize the implications of it. He could die of starvation, give that drake information about The Tongue, or, according to what he had been told, live his greatest fears in his own flesh.
30Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ4RjH8J5T2e
— If those are my options, then I'll be your test dummy.
30Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡGZjSrUBSVj
With the three options he had, living his worst fears was as if it were the only one for him. According to his philosophy of life, torture was preferable to dying at the hands of the enemy, and even death itself was preferable to betrayal.
30Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡIr3gStjvec
— Well, I'll explain how it works. You will live your worst fears, and the worst moments of your life, and I will witness them. You will feel them one after another at the speed I want. And if any of them interests me, I'll want to see it more than once. This can cause chronic headaches in the short term, and that if I do not get serious. Even I do not know what could happen to you if I decide to really torture you with Terror. Are you ready?

The Lizard sounded threatening, but he did not care, so he nodded.
30Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡkMKDEbyg4t
So, the drake gave free rein to his gift, and the first thing the two saw was ... A wagon falling down a ravine. The shadow of a huge dragon. A very fat, rodent-looking Kindfolk ... And at that moment, Noctis began to shake. The fears, the worst moments of his life, followed each other, in a matter of seconds.
30Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡzMVD3O6mkk
His first defeat in combat, the first time he was sent to the cage, that time they cut him ... What was it that had been cut? He was in a kind of operating room, and the doctor had amputation instruments. But as much as Nighishad forced his gift over and over again in that memory, and no matter how much Noctis writhed in horror, none of them could see what was really happening.
30Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡyZEDXEQFJW
Finally, after some attempts, the sub headmaster stopped using Terror.
30Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡq3IaHnmfDq
— ¿How long have you been going to the dentist? —He asked, thinking that maybe the lost memory was just a simple tooth amputation.
30Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡJdcERfsXCM
— That's something i can't afford.
30Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡibLWOJBEpk
—And before deciding to hunt dragons, you used to be a fighter, from what I see.
30Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡAQoi06Fmlj
— I was born to overcome the best. And when I got over them, I got bored. I needed greater opponents.
30Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡN5xZKofcmR
—I see. And the scene of the wagon falling down the ravine? What can you tell me about it?
30Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡZE2LBRvdvU
— I'm as lost as you are in that one.
30Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡy6KWpL258o
— Good. Now that you have verified how Terror works, do you want to continue with this or do you prefer to talk?
30Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡoVuWVekaqG
Then, Noctis came up with a way to divert attention from his guardian.
30Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ2ql5bXWGas
— And what's the point of having six heads to spare? — He asked.
30Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡBIymFX8I2h
— C-class Polycephalia, I've developed it as i grew. They really do not do much, with just one extra head is enough to not need to sleep. Then there is the fact that they act by instinct, eating by involuntary reflexes, which is almost like breathing.
30Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡ7rcBn8PIjg
— It's interesting. I mean, even though you have seven heads, you need me to entertain yourself.
30Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡplGKrSInzS
— Because they are idiots! Bah, it's just C-class Polycephalia, I can only have one conscious head at a time. I usually use this. The central, the original. But every now and then I like to use some other.
30Please respect copyright.ＰＥＮＡＮＡQbBoxgmGZo
— Interesting, tell me more.
