    What is a Wizard without his Wand?

    Priscilla saw Luis in his robes, a big blush spread across her face and burned her ears. She could see him becoming a great mage or wizard. That she knew for sure. She almost didn't feel worthy as they linked arms and proceeded into the big dining hall that had been converted for one night to be a ballroom. Proud parents and mentors lined the rows, Priscilla seeing Lord and Lady Uldwar clapping as they walked through and took their spots at the banquet tables for the big welcoming speech done by the Headmaster. She would smile, squeezing his arm a little. "I hope so Luis..."She said assuredly as they took their seats. They would be able to wander around, dance and eat later. Ingrid stood on the platform she had been instructing on the last few days of the exams. She looked around at all the eager faces, dipping her head to the Uldwar House out of respect. They were her bosses after all. She would wave her hands for the clapping to settle down. "Thank you everyone for joining us here on this special occasion: To celebrate the first class of the Weaver Academy's Port Mars branch and their acceptance into the school."She said, looking to Lord Uldwar. "It is with a great thanks to the Lord and Lady Uldwar for making this possible. Without the family's support, I would not be standing here today nor would this building. It is with great pride that I announce that this space we stand in will be name officially 'Uldwar Hall' in honor of our prestigious benefactors." There was a round of applause briefly before it settled down again. Ingrid would stand aside, allowing the Founder, Kalmuli to step forward. With the make up and the formal wear, the sharpness of her eyes stood out more and she looked around the room at all the parents and students. "When I founded the Weaver Academy centuries ago, I never imagined having such diverse students. All of you will find your strength here. All of you will know your weaknesses. You will mentally tired. Physically tired. Spiritually tired...but all of it is to make you the finest Mages of this world and beyond. I'll also make this important...to those of you who have mentors and family here today...be sure to thank them today. Had they not made the sacrifices they have, you would not be sitting here." "Speaking of which."Ingrid interrupted, stopping Kalmuli in her speech. The younger elf approached with a colorfully wrapped package. "This is a gift from the teachers and myself. Had you not started the first school, we wouldn't have this school."She said, Kalmuli accepting the package. Kalmuli raised an eyebrow, reaching for the lid of the package and opened it to look inside. She raised an eyebrow, pulling out the gift. They were a pair of black, heavy leather gloves that were like Ingrid's but had silver details and a places for her own stone on the backs. Kalmuli smiled. "Thanks."She said, putting the gloves back in the box and giving Ingrid a pat on the shoulder. "With that being said, let the festivities begin!" The small orchestra started to play a soothing tune to enjoy with dinner, Priscilla looking to Luis with a smile.

    Priscilla never wore expensive things but the silky fabric of the formal robes felt nice against her skin. She looked at herself in the mirror and she didn't recognize herself. Her long black hair had been combed straight and pinned back in a foreign hair style. All the girls had something similar done to their hair but chose the colors of their formal robes to match either an element of their favor or just a beauty preference. Priscilla wore all blue and gold. The Headmaster stood by her, dressed up in her beautiful autumn-colored attire as she looked to Priscilla with a soft smile. "Kind of scary how a change of clothes and a little make-up can make you look like a different person."She said, Priscilla looking up at her with a little nod. Kalmuli approached, adjusting her robes in the mirror that was a contrasting green and black. "She's in shock that now with having a little boyfriend, she can show this side of her."Kalmuli noted, looking to Priscilla and brushing the girl's raven black hair a little to smooth a bit of frizz. She looked back to the others who were standing-by, clapping her hands. "Alright ladies, line up. When you leave out the door, you'll join with the boys and take arms for the procession." ______________________ Meanwhile with the boys, the same announcement was made. However, a square-jawed, red-eyed teacher approached Luis as they waited around. "Young Lord Luis. This was delivered earlier for you from your parents."He spoke, revealing in his abnormally large hand a hair clasp. With the gingerness of a hairdresser, the Teacher would half tie Luis' hair back and pin it with the gift from the Keep. "There. Now you look more like a mage." A lithe teacher clapped his hands and gesture for the boys to line up. "Alright, single file. You'll join arms with the ladies in the middle and walk into the ballroom arm and arm. Please keep in mind the length of the robes and don't trip."

    Priscilla smiled, finishing her hair and scooted on her knees over to him, holding his head and giving him a kiss on the mouth that was brief and welcoming. "I'm alright Luis."She said once she pulled away, still holding his face. "And you stopped...if you really wanted to hurt me, you would have done it right now. You're a lot stronger than you think." Priscilla let him go, sitting back on her legs. "When we're ready, we're ready...but I know I want to get to know you more before we do something like that. Plus...maybe we should wait until we're adults too."She said with a little shrug.

    Priscilla felt their body weights shift, bringing one hand away from him to go behind her to ease the transition. Was lying down much easier? She felt the blanket against the blanket and the ground. She hold him, feeling the island breeze lift the hem of her dress to show the leggings and suddenly, Luis pulled away. Priscilla saw the sycamore above her and the sky, sitting up a little when Luis seemed to be a bit off. Sitting up all the way, she brought her hand to her mouth and looked at him with concern. Was she that bad of a kisser? Did she do something wrong? Did someone see them kissing and it caught Luis off guard? There were so many questions and concerns going on in her head, she sat in silence as the young Lord quickly packed up the leftovers of their picnic. "R-right...We have a class on how to put the formal robes on before the banquet. It takes a while since there are a lot of layers."She said, re-wrapping some of the sandwiches and vegetables. A cold spell could make it last a while if she squirreled it off to her room afterward. Priscilla would stop a moment after putting the plate in the basket, leaning her head on his shoulder. "I...liked you kissing me Luis. I hope I didn't do anything wrong...but if I did, I'll get better. I just need time."She said, feeling self conscious again. Easing off his shoulder, she took a moment to quickly braid her hair again so it was back into the long, black plaits on the side of her head.

    Promotion

    A little smirk crossed Kalmuli's lips. Well...it wasn't a hundred percent legal her work.. What she did under the table in an upstairs room was something entirely questionable. "Thank you. That's a tame compliment to what I've received before."She smiled, reaching for her tea to finish off the last dredges before it got cold. Kalmuli felt a warmth, looking over to Lily and seeing that she had gotten a little bit closer. A welcome gesture but the elf continued to sip her tea until it was gone, setting the empty tea cup down again. "That's fine...It gives me time to make arrangements with my staff regarding the transition."She noted. Kalmuli would have to talk to her teachers and other staff members who ran the Pendulums and her schools to stand as acting leader. Not a hard thing since her graduated students were always looking for new jobs. "It has been a long time since I've been to a party...not to mention, one that's held in my honor for a promotion. I look forward to meeting the Black Queen in person." Kalmuli would shift, extending her hand to shake Lily's to solidify their deal this day. "The pleasure is all mine, Adviser Lily. I look forward to meeting you again when I can officially take the title 'Baroness'."She chuckled.

    Promotion

    Kalmuli chuckled, leaning down to set her tea cup down on the saucer on the table after having warmed herself with a few sips as Lily spoke. Her work was a lot more tame than illegal. She smiled and reached up to tuck a bit of her white fluffy hair away from her cheek and behind her ear. "I deal primarily in healing and fortune telling. Occasionally handcrafted magic items too."She shrugged. "Though it's mostly getting through purchasing land or a building to renovate into my healing workshop I'm quite impatient when I want something so getting the property to grow sooner rather than later is better." More or less, she wanted to make sure any competing businesses wouldn't get the upper hand. Her hand came to her chin as she leaned forward, looking to Lily as she described the reason for not wanting the territory for herself. Considering that it was so far out, it made a good test location for her shop and being outside of the Capital region, there was an ample need for healers, magic items and other services. "Sounds like being an adviser is a much more comfortable life style."She noted, easing back. "I don't blame you. I would probably want to be a little closer to home than out here in the boonies...however the proximity to the beach shore is actually very convenient. My apprentices actually enjoy the area." Kalmuli tilted her head. She'd have to meet the Black Queen eventually, maybe even at her ascension to the head of Drakiss. She was aware of the whispers about her. The interludes between the Devil and the Vampire. She sighed mentally. "I attracted positive attention....A notable fortress in the Red Queen's territory came under attack and since some figureheads had been captured, it left it undefended. I gathered my students and we put out the fires, healed the sick, buried the dead...cleaned up a lot of debris."She said, listing off some of the good deeds performed those days. Granted, it was a gruesome scene....but one that she was all too familiar with. "A Regent of the Queen approached me during a precarious time and extended the opportunity to act as a stand in Queen myself. So I did and earned the title 'Lady'. I guess my existence has spread since....I intended to stay under the radar when I first arrived in Valucre though ." She glanced off to the side, lost in though. When she arrived, it had been chasing after an interest of hers. A Librarian clad in purple and silver. She hadn't seen him since and decided to stick around for a change of pace. "Fates have a funny way of turning things around on you. Either way, I'm here. In Drakiss. Ready to sit and bring it back to its glory or at least, into a more inviting space for businesses and travelers."She shrugged. "Though, if the Black Queen has specific requests for the fort, I'll hear them and adjust from there."

    The Pendulum III: Potions and Pleasantries

    Ingrid flinched a little when he nuzzled against her neck, a little giggle slipping out of her. It was a sensitive spot that light little touch made her extremely ticklish. She lay there with him, smiling softly. "I can still thank you for doing something that others would have been impatient enough to not wait for."She said, reaching up to pet along his cheek bones and look at him with an adoration for someone whom she would call 'beloved'. "The only time I can see me not liking you is if you did something to make me do it. I don't think you've got the heart to do that."She said, touching noses with him. "I do want to get to know you more, Aldorto...I'm not so delicate that I can be scared off. I look forward to seeing you again...hopefully as an Archmage and not a student..." Ingrid eased against him, coiling her legs and arms around him as she lay there, watching him. It was sad to watch him fade up close. She could see the change in his eyes and in his face. One day, she'd see the version of him that wasn't nested inside of a host and forced into hiding. As he started to fade out, she kissed his forehead, holding him close to her chest as he disappeared again.

    The New Queen in Town

    Kalmuli bore Lenix's weight while he was struggling with keeping his balance and keeping himself focused. She held his head up with one hand while using the other to place on his head so she could pump out more of her healing skills to the head injury. If he were to pass out now, there would be no knowing that he would wake up. That would be hard to explain to Aldorto why his son was in a coma in Altissium. She worked on his head injury more aggressively than the others. Soon Lenix would be able to focus a little bit better and the vertigo would subside. "I know. That's from blood loss and the head wound. You'll be okay. If you need to close your eyes, do it but don't fall asleep."She said, running her hand along his head and spreading her healing energy around. "Shall I grab the palace healer as well and see about acquiring some potions?"Brenna asked. "Yes. A potion will help heal the internal injuries a little faster than I can at the moment.'Kalmuli requested and Brenna curtsied, dashing off in a flurry of clicks from her heels to inside the palace. Plume seemed to have given Lenix a warm welcome and she smiled approvingly to the worried human woman who rubbed Lenix's back and kept the cloth on his neck nice and cold. "Good, I'm glad that you had a fun albeit drunken adventure into town."She smiled. There was a flurry of clicks and glass pings as Brenna returned with a small box of potions that would be enough to help with the healing process. Kalmuli would use her left hand to grab a potion while the other held Lenix's head up. Using her teeth, she popped off the cork and offered it to his mouth. "Open up and drink this. It'll make you feel better a little faster."

    Ingrid could see the intensity of his stare, feel it along her spine as he spoke to her. She had paused her soothing petting for only a moment, continuing once she felt satisfied with his answer. "I know...you're very hard headed."She teased him a little, reaching up and petting along his head and adjusting the cool cloth on the back of his neck. "Mental scars are the hardest to heal...but they're still scars. They heal over a long period of time. I can't imagine how many there are living as long as you and Kalmuli have...but I'm here if you want to talk." Ingrid leaned down, settling her head down to rest against his arm, her arm going around and rubbed along his back. "You'll see us all again. One day. Maybe not all together but we'll see each other. Until then, keep fighting until you can...and I'll keep working hard I see you."She commented soothingly while she cuddled with him. "You've got a good heart Aldorto Ardese....Even if I don't see you again, I'm lucky to know you. Thank you...for giving them just a little bit more time."

    It was the world had suddenly become a drum inside of her ears. Priscilla felt his body heat more as they got closer, see the little bit of droplets on his forehead from the humidity around them. She reached up slowly, hesitantly bringing her hand up to his hair that was a smooth, black coil in her fingers. She leaned in a little bit more until she had to tilt her head and accepted his mouth on hers. He tasted like lunch but he felt like two soft petals on her mouth. The connection sent a trill through her she couldn't describe but butterflies and bees in her chest and stomach. She didn't know how long she was allowed to stay like this. To stay in this sensation of a swarm. Priscilla shuffled a little closer, her arms coming about him around his chest.

    The New Queen in Town

    Kalmuli and Brenna could hear the cracks of bone and muscle as Makiel wailed on Lenix with little restraint. Each blow had the women wincing enough that the inexperienced ones trembled and the eager ones stared on. The raging force of the Wanderer's mana wafted over the courtyard and Kalmuli knew this was going to go overboard. Challenging someone who's abilities were enhancement techniques was asking for a few breaks and concussions, even if Makiel was holding back. Lenix was still a kid in elven terms anyway. The smell of blood stung her nose and Kalmuli passed the umbrella onto Gizelle before turning away from the balcony just as the fight was wrapping up. It had gone too far. Heigel and Brenna followed her to assist with the men so she wouldn't be unattended in the courtyard. Down below, she passed through and the guards in the courtyard immediately got back to attention and filed rank while she was there. Kalmuli approached Makiel and Lenix, bringing her hand up to examine Lenix's head. "Shit, you really over did it. If you'd kicked any harder, the front of his skull would be in his brain."She said, her hand starting to glow as she worked on patching the dizzy werewolf up. "I can heal the crack but he'll have a concussion." Kalmuli leaned in to look at the young elf's eyes. There was a heavy panting right behind her, turning to see Plume having run all the way down to help, looking flustered. "Is he going to be okay...?"Plume asked, her eyes watering. "Yes but he'll have a bad headache. He'll need to be kept awake for awhile until his natural healing takes care of the concussion."Kalmuli warned. She spread out her healing to travel further down Lenix's body, taking care of the broken bits of him and then refocusing on his head. "Go get some water and a clean rag." Brenna would pat Plume's shoulder to let the little woman know that she could stay. She was faster anyway and the elven handmaid would dash off to go get clean water and cloth to clean up some of the blood. When Brenna returned, Kalmuli took the cloth, cleaning up around Lenix's jaw. Plume would take another clean cloth, putting it on the back of Lenix's neck to cool him down and offered the same to Makiel. "Here. It's hot."She offered. Kalmuli put her hand under Lenix's chin, raising his head up. "Lenix...Try not to go to sleep on me. You'll be okay but you've got to focus on me for a little bit until you can see straight."She spoke to him. "Talk to me about what you did with Plume today."

    Ingrid helped Aldorto into the Ward to a bed on the right by a window. Once Aldorto was lying down, she opened up a window to let the sea breeze in and stepped away for a moment to soak a washcloth in cold water, coming back to move his hair aside to put it on the back of his neck. Ingrid sat on the side of the bed, braiding his hair back to keep him a little bit cooler and gently rubbed his side while he lay there, shaking and sick. There wasn't much they could do other than wait out Kalmuli and Makiel. "I know it's hard to wait...especially when you've got a big task ahead..."She whispered softly, enjoying the feel of the sea breeze as it wafted through the window. "Resting gives you time to plan though...to clear your head..." Ingrid adjusted the cold cloth, brushing his hair away from his forehead. Leaning down, she gave his temple a kiss. "I'll be anxious the whole time you're away..."She admitted softly to him.

    Hearing the tap out from up on the balcony, Kalmuli cursed under her breath and moved away to go sit back on her lounge chair. Well, that was a loss. She refilled her glass, sitting back under the sun while the handmaids adjusted the umbrella again so she was lying in the shade. Her first few days in Altissium, she passed out a few times from the sun and heat so they were very careful to help her stay cool. Kalmuli sipped more wine, setting her glass to the side. "Dammit."She cursed, lying with an arm over her eyes. "Lost the bet?"Heigel chimed in, pulling out a hand fan and offering it to the stand-in Queen. "Yes...but the prize for losing is still worth it. I was just hoping for immediate satisfaction."Kalmuli admitted. "Either way...I'm going to have satisfaction in the end. Whole heaps of it." "It looks like there might be a round two."Plume piped up and Heigel was back up to her feet, looking over. Though she frowned and looked back. The two had went to their respective corners to catch their breaths and heal up before going again. It may be a little while before they saw action again. Brenna, who had the best hearing of them other than the Queen, approached the railing again to check in and looked back to the Queen. "The first fight was just fists. This time, it's a bet if Warden Makiel and Sir Lenix can stand up to magic. It seems they've waged that Makiel can knock Lenix back using magic instead of fists."She informed the Queen who removed her arm from her eyes to look over. "You don't say...I haven't seen Makiel go all out with his magic before."Kalmuli said, getting up again but taking the umbrella with her out of the stand to hold it, looking over the railing at the two.

    Ingrid smiled, nodding eagerly. The thought of huge puppies running around made her eager for the future to come but patient enough to enjoy what they had already. A werewolf who was willing to spend the time with them. "Patience is a good virtue to have..."She said, reaching over and rubbing Aldorto's back. "It won't be too much longer and we'll all have a big breakfast like this again. Next time, maybe with more people and giant puppies." Aldorto's back felt clammy and uncomfortably sweaty. She leaned over, worriedly looking him over. He looked miserable. A mix of anxious and sick. She got up from the table, going to his other side to hold his arm. "Yes of course. Let's get you set up in the ward. There's a spot with a good breeze that will help."She said, helping him up. "I'll sit with you for a while if you'd like...that way if you get really sick, you won't be alone."

    The New Queen in Town

    The women grimaced and oo'ed from the balcony. More of the handmaids started to lean over to watch them, hoping to learn something from the two fighters down below. Kalmuli even got up from her lounger, leaning her arms on the railing with her wine glass in hand, watching them. Gizelle, the less interested one of them, grabbed the shade to move it over the elf. A smart move to keep the foreigner from passing out in the heat and light. Heigel leaned over to Kalmuli, whispering. "So what's the bet? Can I get in on it?"Heigel asked quietly. "It's a no money bet...just a lover's game. If you really want to put bets down, you can go watch with the guards down below. I'd rather you up here though. It's safer."Kalmuli answered, sipping the wine and looking back down below. A solid kick to Lenix's face caused them to grimace in unison and poor Plume gave a small whimper of worry. "Oh stop Plume...He's fine. This isn't a fight to the death."Kalmuli chided the plump woman who looked over with a little furrow of her brow and folded her hands in front of her. "You've seem to have gotten attached to him..." Plume looked up, then back down to Lenix. Had she? They had become good friends in the short time and she had opened up to the elf about her aspirations as well as her past. She smiled a little. "A little...He's smart and strong. He's asked me to work with his clan later on when I'm ready as their artificer and ore hound."She admitted. "He takes on after his father. He's got his looks too."Kalmuli chuckled. "Make sure you get his address so you can write letters. I enjoy your company but encourage you to definitely seek out all the opportunities you can. The Ardesians are going to grow and they'll need resourceful people to keep up with this world." Plume was pleased to hear the approval but it just made her all the more wary of the future. Kalmuli knew her handmaids wouldn't stay with her forever but with what she had felt from Lenix, someone who was soft and comforting would be nice company to keep for the elf who went through so much.
