What Doesn't Kill You - Part 23

Straight.  It is then you realize what you’re doing.  Just as Be launched into the terrible winds of the funnel, you are prepared to do the same.  Is that how it’s going to end?  Snuffed out in a magical world that no one will ever know?

The pixies have gathered en masse now, forming their lines.  They are ready to attack, but what can they do?  Bob had faith in them, but why now?

The funnel’s winds come closer; they rip at your clothes and hair, teasing with threat.  The throbbing in your palm has gotten worse, but it is of no matter.  You will help these fae if it’s the last thing you do.  Unfortunately, that may just be the case.

Bob’s familiar voice shows up on your shoulder.  “Did you miss me?” he grins.

“Bob!”  Somehow his presence makes the load a little lighter, but your thoughts shift to the fae.  “Is Be okay?”  The throb in your palm is worse.

“A little hurt pride, but none the worse for wear; she definitely made it.”  His voice becomes animated.  “The dark lady doesn’t want her anyway.  It wants us!”

This time you know he’s smiling.  A slap of wind almost knocks you off your feet.

“Bob, if I didn’t know better, I’d swear you were an adrenaline junky!”

“Don’t you feel it,” he grins.  “The excitement, the thrill, the magic!”

“Magic?”  A stick flies by as you duck, and then another and another.

“Yes magic!” he booms out.  “It’s waiting, just waiting, for the right time to strike!”

Your eyes follow the tall funnel; it is very close now.  “Which better be soon!”

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?
