59 Days Until Mastery And the Uncertain End (3) 

The car was filled with a thick silence. They had been parked for a long time, outside of the Tower. Sirens called signaling final call for lockdown. There were more cars than just theirs stationed out. Most of them were military vehicles, however there were no staff. From what May had determined, as they sat watching, the military had left the vehicles out the tower with either explosives or poison gas. It was the most that Estashia could force the Military Mages to do. The X armies were not going to assist the Towers that had abandoned them. Even with Heia’s assistance to pressure Alan Penn, they had to protect their own, not the Circles and Stars. The two groups were not helping each other willingly and this night was the best way to fix the situation.

May tossed back two sets of over the ear headphones to Zeydar for himself and Kony. He watched as she placed her’s on before assisting Shawn with his cord. Zeydar set up the headset and placed the chord out of the way and taped it back so it would not go flying. With a flick of the switch on, the noise of the world canceled. Removing them, he was about to ask why when he heard a high pitched reverberating sound that both rocked his soul deeply and sent chills down his spine. His mind screamed, he saw stars, and stopped breathing.

59 Days Until Mastery And the Uncertain End (part 2) 

The reports had begun to come in from the front lines with numbers that were far over the predicted ones. Heia had to wonder if the size of the Aralax assault was because of all the things that EverDanger had done. Was it because the humans had been persistent? That most had not died in the recent attacks? Was the change, her fault?

“We are dying out there.” Trace growled.

Their whole team sat around their vehicles, listening to the reports. They were fully dressed and fully prepared to be sent out. Kim had ordered them to be prepared. For hours they had been ready to be deployed but when all the others left, they had remained behind. Most of the Mages, sat in a circle going over spells together. Kori spoke with some of the Circles, telling them stories of the Aralax.

More chaos reports came from the radio.

59 Days Until Mastery And the Uncertain End (1)

Zeydar tossed his bag over his shoulder, shifting his weight, as he jumped down from the car. Kony landed next to him with a soft thud. Shawn landed last, moving past them to walk to the front of the car, as Kony shut the door. Zeydar watched as Shawn took a map and a set of keys from the driver, before nodding to Kony and Zeydar, walking away from the car that headed down the alley as if its short stop had never happened.

Leaving the CloudCity had been the hardest part to plan. Uly had to make a secret compartment in a car, rented by Graceon. The group getting them out had been a crew hired by those that Europa trusted with their lives. Zeydar and Kony had to hide in the car, in the compartment, as the car left the main gate of Ovaria. Everything had been checked, and even with the bribes and control, Zeydar’s heart had been racing. He could feel the Superior bond tugging at him as he moved away from the Superior campus. It was as if it were reminding him, that he could not act first.

The second vehicle that they were going to get would take them from the top of the Tower to the bottom. Unlike the slow bus that had struggled to get up, they were to take a top of the line military vehicle. With the quiet tap of their feet, Zeydar walked close to Kony, trailing after Shawn who was breathing sharp in the crisp Tower morning air. They had a day to get down, and needed to get on the inter-floor Tower elevator in order to accomplish the task. It was exclusive for military, and Zeydar could only hope that Shawn could get them through.

60 Days Until Reports And the Uncertain End (part 3)

Zeydar waved his students off. The few stragglers, collected their books. A few asked Zeydar some questions before the room emptied and finally Zeydar collapsed in the chair next to Shawn who was half asleep.

“I’m going to go get lunch.” Shawn yawned, standing. “Don’t wander off.”

“Disappear. Got it.” Zeydar laughed as Shawn flipped him off and left the room. Alone, Zeydar started grading papers, thinking to himself on the books he needed to look over and the information that he had to retrieve for the tablet. The news about the attacks was scheduled to have broken during his class, and thus more than anything, he was waiting for the talk. He was waiting for Marjorie to walk into the room and—

Heia refrained from clenching at the hem of her shirt as she listened to the reports that were coming in over the headsets. She stood with Kim watching out as the three teams led by Lynx, Onyx, and Robee raced around as the teams representing the Aralax, Trace and Kori, attacked them back. Heia continued to keep her face as monotonous and straight lipped as possible. The screens showing the camera angles from the drones, depicted the magical effects from the mages and what it possibly could be like with a real battle.

However it was not real battle, and Kori and Trace were not touched, nor were their teams. Seeing the way that the magic was used, however had her thinking. What were the best maneuvers to employ with the magical protection? What about new moves? With the new assistance, a whole world of possibilities opened up before her.

“Okay call them to stop.” Alan Penn spoke in irritation.

Kim hurried to call everyone to a stop as Heia looked to the man. He grimaced at the computers, and Heia felt a swell of pride level within her chest. IT had been an excellent display, far greater than the man had expected, and with that, Heia was in the position to use it to her advantage.

Evester hissed into the night. The air stung at his skin and he felt the chill of the spring washing over him. It was supposed be getting closer to summer, not colder. Yet, he felt frigid. The light breeze washed over them. His hot breathe was white against the dark night and the light of thee stars.

“You good?” Rayda asked over intercom.

“Any sight?” Evester asked.

“Not yet.” Crass answered.

“Stay vigilant.” Evester knew that the Aralax were on their way. The Project would not lead them astray.

The battle was predicted to be a single night attack. If Evester could help it, he would ensure it was a single night. They had gathered all those who remained in the city, to a secure location in the city itself. They had been able to cut the population of the city from a million to a hundred thousand. It was a large jump in numbers but a hundred thousand people was still a big group. They remained in the city and all the planes to save them were away. If only Evester had one more day. 

They had to make it through the night.

62 Days Until Leaving And the Uncertain End 

Heia stood watching. Teams maneuvered about each other and the magic tactical course that May had developed. There was teamwork, legitimate teamwork of the likes Heia had been afraid would never happen. It was all she had hoped for but seeing it made her dread it more. Would the act keep up the moment that May walked away?

“Good?” May asked.

“Do you have to leave?” Heia hoped that there was a chance that May would not have to leave and that she would stay and that this would not be a momentary success.

“Unfortunately. Zeydar needs me.”

Or was it Shawn that May wanted to go back to? Heia doubted that Zeydar actually needed May’s assistance.

63 Days Until Planning And the Uncertain End

Zeydar was sitting in the dinning room, next to Shawn, when Uly walked into the room with Europa at his heels. Maverin walked in after him. Both Uly and Maverin had different looks on their faces upon being released. Maverin had a pep in his step, clean shaven, cut hair, cleaned up and proper. Uly too was cleaned up, but his expression was distant, darker, perturbed. Zeydar wondered how much Europa and Estashia had briefed them on Zeydar’s freed status, and on the situation on the Stars, or if they’d just gotten them home.

“Zeydar.” Maverin slid in the seat next to Zeydar, where Kony usually sat. Maverin examined him as the room filled with everyone else of the house. Uly sat listlessly, as Europa sat next to him, and Layla helped Europa with her notes. Andre and Endwin walked in as they were talking, with Kony following in and standing in shock that his spot was taken. A glance to his right showed that Shawn was eating as if nothing had changed.

Zeydar looked back to Maverin. “Yes?”

“My son is smitten with you.” Maverin stated a bit too loudly, making Shawn laugh. A bit of conversation dropped into whispers and Zeydar felt the other eyes on him.

64 Days Until Confidence And the Uncertain End 

Evester wiped the sweat from his brow looking up towards a shadow and then towards the sky and sun above. He registered what had been said, trying to savor the words and believe that they were true. Hot, he breathed out before doing a double take at the soldier near him. “What?”

“Right now.” The soldier repeated.

Dropping his shovel, Evester climbed out from the trench that they were building, and hurried to grab his jacket. He followed after the soldier to the city entrance. As predicted, only two of the entrances to the city were open. The others had been caved in. The only other remaining open cave entrance, had a gap similar to the kind that Evester had seen in LakeLost. For precaution, they had set up traps for it as well, meant to cave it in, under worst circumstances.

At the only viable entrance, the city mayor stood with a variety of other persons whom Evester took as additional leaders. Amongst them was the man who had demanded that they leave upon their initial arrival. Watching him led Evester to the conclusion that the man had not been a leader of the city at all.

65 Days Until Suspicion And the Uncertain End (part 3) 

Zeydar stood in the middle of the arena looking towards the targets. Spell on his mind, theory on his lips, history as a flash of memory, Zeydar cast his first fire spell. Then water. Then earth, shadows, wind, electricity. Element after element. Spell after spell. Still his magic stung, still his head span, but he was in control over it. Hissing he looked at his arms, seeing the skin turning red from the magic lashing out against him. 

Since he had talked with Marjorie earlier that day, he had been wondering. Why was it that his magic hurt him? Had it been that way his whole life? If it had, had they really made Dreams to save him? Or was it only given to him as he was a child and they found out his skill? Somehow thinking that it was given to him because the magic was killing him, made him feel better. Tyler hadn’t done something to hurt him then. 

He, however, wondered, if it were given as a preemptive thing. That by doing so that he had injured himself. Marjorie had not had any complications with him, so said his birth records. If it were true, it meant that he had not injured her or himself while being carried to term. His magic had accepted them both. Even weaker, he had been in equilibrium. He had a feeling that they had been afraid of his powers, that they could possibly be out of his control, and had reacted. By doing so, they had screwed him over.

“I was looking for you.” Shawn called out from the stadium.
