Untold Secrets - Part 12

Nodine gives a nod and then turns back to you.  “You must wait until they throw you in, not before.  Do you understand?”

A swirl of thoughts hit your mind, but the details, they are too much.  You see images, shapes, places, but without reference, Nodine’s language is like a dream.

He realizes what is going on and sighs.  “If only there was more time.”

There is a sound in the hallway.

“Quickly now, let us be short.  To control the crystal, think of a color.  That is the key.  The nearness of another armband can influence, but as you gain skill, it becomes a matter will.  Do you understand?”

His eyes say he must go.   “Find the shard you seek.  Find the cave I know you saw.”

Cave?  What cave?  You stare as Nodine turns to go.  “But, it is not enough to go on!”

Nodine smiles.  “Perhaps, perhaps not.  Whatever you do, do not control the crystal while in the presence of the guard.  If you do, you will be discovered, and all will be lost.”

That wasn’t one bit ominous!

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?
