What Doesn't Kill You - Part 20

It’s easy now; after all, you are gliding on the winds.

The face in the clouds catches glimpses of you; the evil is ready to pounce. It tries to alter your course, but there are only so many things it can do.

You slide through the air, as gracefully as a flying squirrel, swoop near the troll, and grab the first thing in reach, his ear. Now you know what Bob The Pixie and the fae Be must feel like.

A glance inside the troll’s ear turns your stomach. You never realized how disgusting ear wax could look. Your face reddens; Bob and the fae could be staring into yours right now.

The troll is too busy holding onto the ledge to stop you, though he does try to shake his head. You stay glued, hands gripping those earlobes with all your might.

A loud cracking sound fills the area around you. At first you think it is thunder, that is, until you look up.

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?
