What Doesn't Kill You - Part 14

“Come on,” Bob The Pixie has to shout to be heard.  Thunder booms again.  “We better get out while we can!”

To the right, you can see a bright light of multiple colors approaching the impending storm.  It has to be the fae.  It is such a tiny force against a storm that large; your heart goes out to the plight they face.

“How far does it go?” you shout to Bob.  Thunder blasts again.


“How far does the dark lady’s reach extend?  What worlds can she influence?”  The wind whips around you.

“Nobody knows,” Bob wipes something from his eye.

It is getting harder to see.

“But we know her heart.  You and I stopped her once by surprise.  She won’t make that mistake again!”

The fae light is at the foot of storm, fighting to hold together.  A funnel begins to form in the clouds, and you watch the cloud formation hiss, showing a face with fanged teeth.

“They’ll never make it!” you shout.  “That storm will eat them alive!”

As the funnel touches the ground, dust, dirt, and debris shoot off in all directions.  As if sucked through a straw, anything touched is drawn in.  A moment later, the funnel strikes the fae.

For those interested, what is 'The Wall Outside' about?

Step across the barrier and what will you find?
A place of magic just out of sight?
A pixie, a leprechaun, or even a sprite?

What starts as a vacation, turns into a mess. For Jonna, there's
more at stake than meets the eye. Through pouring rain,
misdirection, and a curious mind, Jonna crossed the barrier
between our world and magic.

Now forced to return across the barrier, Jonna battles Dark Mages, angry leprechauns, and a ruthless Minotaur, all in an effort to find his wife. To do this, he must locate the stolen Rune Blade and rescue a beautiful elvish princess.

But what can a human do when faced with a world of magic?
