“Well,” she looks flabbergasted, “I can’t very well show you unless I remove it, now can I?  Hold out the palm!”

Bob The Pixie, looking puzzled, begins to speed up as your begin to extend your hand.

“There now,” Be waits as if with all the time in the world.  “That’s better!  Now, hold still; this won’t hurt a bit!”

“No,” Bob shouts, “don’t let her touch it!”

Before you can pull your palm back, she raises the wand and it begins to descend.  The sparkles are matching to the throb.  It draws your eyes with a feeling of warmth.

Bob slams into Be, knocking the wand from her hand.  It launches up into the air and drops down straight for you.

Grabbing Be tightly, he flies back toward the wand, trying to catch it in time; in time, that is, to slam into you.  Between the fae, pixie, you, and the wand, there is a brilliant flash of rainbow colors.  A moment later, all three of you are gone.

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?
