DAY 3: morning
I feel better, though I had the same nightmare last night. The sleep did me good though, I'm no longer sore. However I'm not sure what today wi
“I'm glad you brought that up, today I want you to investigate whatever's going on on the nearby mountain.”
I sighed “What's going on on the mountian?”
“I don't know but the magic is torn, like there's a powerful mage who either isn't trying to be sneaky, or doesn't know there's another mage nearby.”
“And you aren't going to teach me any magic first?”
“Af is out talking to trees, I'm busy and magic requires you to flow your energy though yourself in ways that take time to learn, and this kinda needs to be done as soon as we can. There is a path, if you see a light, turn and run then hide in the bushes.”
“Ok, I'm on it.”
“Just take a look, try not to be seen.”
DAY 3: about mid-day
I continued along the path, the fog had cleared so by the time I could see anything it could see me.
Unless for example it was the smoke I saw above the trees, I hid in the bushes and crept around until I could see what was going on. I could make out a few figures moving things around, one in particular looked off, I stared until it dawned on me, it didn't have any skin, just bones and some muscles.
“Come out into the clearing.” a voice said in a commanding tone, it was like Ms. Winter's voice, not coming from anyplace in particular
I reluctantly rose from my hiding place, still ready to bolt at any moment I walked into the clearing, staying out of the way of the figures that appeared to be building a camp.
A large strong-looking dhole with the blackest fur I'd ever seen. walked up to me and spoke “Do not be afraid of my minions, they are under my direct control.” he said “Some are undead, some are alive, most of them have pledged their souls to me, but you are different. You wish to learn from me correct?”
“Um, no I was sent here to see what's going on because the mage who is supposed to teach me is-”
He cut me off “Ahh, it is hard to tell from which individual an aspiring mind is trying to learn. I assume that your owner can establish telepathic communication with you at the very least, causing them to trust you with this task?”
“Um, yeah but I'm not sure how to make it go the other way.”
“May I use you as a conduit so that I may contact them?”
“Sure I guess...”
DAY 4: morning
