Heia’s arms ached. Her legs felt like lead. Her breathing rasped against her throat scratching against it. She wanted nothing more than to sleep, and yet the Aralax continued to fight. Waves of magic fell atop the enemies followed by gun fire. For every one Aralax destroyed six more were in its place.

“Will the waves ever end?” Heia asked into the private connection. She was the only one in as Zeydar had gone dark an hour ago and Eveter was off with his own issues.

“These ones are easier to kill then before. I almost think they are a different breed, not as sentient.” Zeydar spoke up. She had not heard him connect back in. He sounded almost… elated? “I think… Hold on.” She listened as his connection beeped off and then waited on bated breath.

The connection had gone mostly silent, other than the inconsistent jeers from Evester whenever he reconnected. They were consistently shut down my Heia who was flustered and frustrated. She and Evester kept switching in and out, giving out orders to the others. In those moments, Zedyar found silence to focus on himself.

Numbers and theories spun in his head. He knew that he could do the spells, felt it in his gut, but without the proper skill he’d never be able to complete the necessary adjustments with his magic to make it work.

May breathed heavily next to him. The night was clear, where they stood. There were stragglers around him, but most of the attacks had moved to the other side of the Tower. Zeydar could, in theory, teleport over there. However, he didn’t have the magic. He needed more, but his reserves were nearly depleted, even with his efficient attacks. He stared at his Staff, trying to figure out how to use it. What was he missing? How did it work differently?

The night began the moment that Karla called in the report of dusk, and the announcements in the city began to play.

“It is now sunset. All citizens please report to your approved locations. All people not in evacuation centers will be impossible to protect. I repeat. This is for your own safety.” 

Most people were already evacuated and safe. There were a few stragglers who had not made their way to the safe houses, and Evester could hear the reports of soldiers clearing sections of the city, in the final calls as they prepared for the attack. Evester glanced to the drones that were supervising the outside world. Heart pounding in his chest, Evester bit his bottom lip.

“What to do Cap’n?” Rayda sat next to Evester from where he sat atop a building. Evester clicked from the drones to the streaming sight, checking on every EverDanger in quick succession: just long enough to confirm that they were alive.

Top Ten Tuesday: Book Wishes

Hello everyone! I hope you are doing well this week! I am doing pretty great other than the massive bruise I got on my arm from accidentally hitting my desk. T–T

June 21: Bookish Wishes

To be honest, we’re supposed to add the amazon link to our wish list so that people can buy us these books. I really don’t care too much for that. I already have so many books at home that I need to read, that asking for them is kinda strange at this point.

Maybe one day if this topic ever comes up, and I’ve gone through all my books I will give you the link to buy books. For now, however. LOL no.

Heia took a breath before studying herself. Then once, more. One breath after another after another she centered herself. She was at the front lines of the largest civilization of people on the continent, as one of the most important teams. She watched the sky turn dark, and the sun disappear, and wanted to hold her breath but knew she could not.

“And we have sunset.” Kori announced over their connection.

“Kori keep the line clear.” Heia reminded her.

Zeydar took a deep breath, letting himself focus on the moment at hand. Before when he had fought the Aralax, he had thrown out everything he had without caring for the effects and cost. He had known then he had the power. Now he had to be precise. He could not waste the magic, when he was already limited. With the camera watching everything he did, he used the vocalization of the spells and  the waving of his Staff to slow him down. The Staff managed and lowered his output naturally. It was a limiter for him, rather than a focus for him. With it hindering him, however, he found himself more accurate than before. 

Zeydar fell hard into his training, wielding the magic that he had, to kill those before him with simple spells that did not take much from him. Calculations raced. Trajectory, spacing, momentum, physics, acceleration, numbers were made, calculations continued. He was able to determine the best path for each spell in seconds, along with the exact amount of magic needed and the Staff allowed him to slow down and think rather than to act on instinct.

In many ways he was doing better. In others, he was doing worse.

It was a game of endurance. With each spell he lost more magic, due to the inefficiency. With each action he had to analyze how to pull in more magic. Deep breaths, Zeydar centered himself, thinking of his childhood training in channeling magic. He thought of what he had taught Kony, in how to reach his magic. Childhood skills, guiding him in pulling in the magic around him. At first it was strained, but with each passing moment, he was learning to pull it in faster.

Heia fiddled with her headset, checking once and then twice that everything was working. She flipped about the channels listening for a bit as Uly gave out instructions. Her eyes glanced to the stream site that Uly had set up for the fights, specifically. Unlike the coordinated single stream, or the edits that they had given, Uly had set up a continuous streaming site, so that people could watch as many as they wanted at once. They’d be able to flip through different channels for the different EverDanger members, or the ones dedicated to switching between footage from all those on a single team. She was not sure who was creating subtitles for it all, but they were there. Nor did she know who was coordinating the shot switches on the team pages, but someone was. Most cameras were down, and Uly’s page had prerecorded footage of orders.

In a way it was scripted. In a way it was real. Her screen was black, waiting for her to turn it on and show the true bloody carnage that was about to happen. 

“There is a five minute delay, in the event of censoring the dead.” Kim wrapped her arms around Heia. “Worried?”

Zeydar sat out breathing the fresh air, meditating. The world tasted different in the open world. It steeped with magic, seeping into his body, and filling him completely. No one had bothered him since they had gotten outside of the Tower. He could feel the tug of the connection he had to the tablet, scratching at him like an itch. Not because Elder Anthony was using it, but because for the last hour he’d be searching his body for the lingering connection trying to find it.

Zeydar fell completely into the sounds of the world, letting them guide him and surround him. The world was so bright, so loud, everything was vibrant and grand. Two decades of Dreams had blinded him to the majesty that was around him, and as he greedy took in the magic that existed around him, he fell further into peace. He probed the connection, ripping it, repairing it, manufacturing it so that he held the control over it and no one else.

“You ready?” The voice came over the headset. There were three settings for rooms that Uly had set up: the complete EverDanger room, each individual team, and the Heia-Evester-Zeydar private room. There was a fourth for Zeydar to contact Maverin, if necessary, not that Zeydar would use it. He had a feeling, he’d be too caught up in his own powers.

Evester tossed his Holoblade between his hands, listening to the white noise over the personal connection. It was still early morning, and he doubted that the other two would come on any time soon. The only reason he remained on the connection was to wait, in the event that Zeydar came on. He wanted to air out what needed to be said, before the whole world heard them talking.

The shadows of the room moved as his door opened. He heard nothing even when he was tapped on the shoulder. Slipping one side of his headset out of his ear, he looked back. Karla stood a bit confused at his actions.

“What are you doing?”


“By being on headset already?”

Oh no… Another difficult week.

June 14: Books I Wish Had An Epilogue

It’s been FOREVER since I read books that I was like, goodness I’d really love an epilogue for this book. Most o the books I want more content for but not really an epilogue. Epilogues are a wrap up, in essence. GL to me I guess.

This becomes even more difficult when I have to pick books from completed series. Or standalones. I just feel like this is rough because I feel that often Authors pick their endings for very specific reasons and to add an epilogue feels to go against that decision. Also, I’d rather that some series were simply COMPLETED (I’m looking at you ASOIAF) over getting an epilogue lol.
