What Doesn't Kill You - Part 26

Be appears from nowhere, scolding you as you fall.  “What did you do?”

“Me?” you manage, not really focusing on the conversation.   The wind is whizzing by you as it pulls at your clothes.  “I didn’t do anything.”

“Oh yes you did!” she jumps right back.  “You did something, and I want to know what!”

With only seconds before hitting the ground, this conversation does not make sense.

“Ho, ho!” Bob The Pixie comes to the other side.  “Well done, well done indeed!”  He shoves debris  out of your way, clearing the path.

Be points at Bob.  “See, even he knows you did it!”

“Thanks  Bob,” you give a stressfully frown, although you are not sure if you are thanking him for backing up Be’s story, or clearing the path so you can fall easier.  Maybe both?

“You’re welcome,” he grins.

Be growls, “Will you two listen to me?  I need to know what you did!”

The ground is coming up fast.  There's no more time.   You scream, “Somebody help me!”

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?
