What Doesn't Kill You - Part 25

There is a roar around you as your feet lift off the ground.  You are flying in a maelstrom of debris, pulled ever higher up the torrent of air.

The face in the cloud is grinning with glee.  From somewhere behind, you sense Bob, but where he is you do not know.

A tree limb flies by; you can feel the leaves as it passes.  Dust and dirt are circulating in patches held here and there, as mini-funnels seem to help make up the whole.

The throb in your hand is now unbearable.  You make a fist, biting the nails down into the palm to control the pain.  A burning sensation fills your fingers.  In totally surprise, you flick the palm open.
There is a flash of light, all sound stops, and you begin to fall.  Where is the wind?  Where is the funnel?

Flipping over you can see ground.  It is coming at you fast.  The face in the cloud is gone.  Except for the damage that was done, you would swear it had never existed.

Nothing makes sense, and you are speeding toward the ground.

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?
