Being a dark magician does not imply that you must do evil or even cause trivial harm to prove your magical capabilities.The simplest way to understand this concept is to imagine that someone else is about to do to you what you did (or plan to do) to someone else. If the guy was being an asshole or offended you in some other way, then what you did may have been fully justified, but you don’t make that case. You just used magick on an unsuspecting muggle, apparently without cause to do so. Each time you do such a thing, a record of this is added to your Akasic history, and quite often, should there be other magick users in your area (in this case, on the bus), you may draw their interest or possibly even get them upset with you. In your particular case, this did not happen (as far as I can tell) and was I to have been there, I probably would have just laughed. But what seems to happen after one has tasted the success of such magick and one gets away with something of this sort, one might be inclined to do something similar or something of even greater magnitude (either to just to see how far you can push it or in all too many cases, as a result of becoming addicted to such tests of one’s capabilities). The more powerful your work, the more likely that it will attract the attention of other wizards. Having attracted such attention, it is most likely that that will not be concerned with trivial attempts but eventually, you will reach a point where you either hurt someone or you have done something that publically displays magick to an extent that it can not be overlooked. That is when someone will most likely retaliate against you or they will summon an emissary to punish you.
But hopefully, it will never come to that. You might want to send you previous victim some goodwill or a magickal gift to help balance the scales.
All Magickal workers draw the attention of greater magickal workers (corporeal or not). The vast majority of the time, this is of no consequence. But when you do something particularly good or particularly evil, the eyes of the greater ones may become set upon you for many different reasons. Just an FYI.
