Edward touched her hands to remove Dawn's hands from her face, but as he did so, magic coursed through him and his eyes opened anew, and without her magic, she was still very attractive, though he could clearly see she didn't think so. She glowed with an aura that suggested much power, greater even than she knew. He withdrew his hand as only the smallest of instances had passed.
Donald walked beside Dawn down the hallway. He was still sour about his brother's gift, but he tried not to let it show. As he walked, Donald sang softly, adding a soundtrack to the making of new friends.
Edward stared at his hand for a moment, sparks flicking from his fingertips, then fading away to nothing, until there was no more.
"My mistress used to call it the Third Sight. First sight is what you see with your eyes, second sight is seeing the past or the future. Third sight is seeing the present for what it really is. I saw you without your magic...you're really quite beautiful, if you don't mind my saying so."
He paused, "It's how I knew I had a gift...I'm a sensitive, I can feel magic...but I've never felt anything like that...your power is amazing."
Just then, they passed under a rotunda with a giant circle etched on the floor with crystals inlaid into it.
"A holding circle? I've never seen one this big," he waved his hand over the edge and sparks flew from his fingertips again, "or so powerful."
Edward looked around at the Courtyard, and was happy to see seemingly normal, happy people around. Granted, he could feel the magic in the air like high humidity, but still. Hex curled her tail around his neck to keep him warm from the cool air, and he rubbed her head, careful to avoid pulling on the ruby earring she wore.
He realized as they were walking that he'd started singing too, an old, familiar song that his mistress had taught him. He sang soft and low to himself and to Hex, and she purred.
Donald watched Dawn smile at the flower. He could finally use his magic.
The plant began to dance. The pedals began to look like thousands of rubies, glistening in the light. It grew until it was as tall as Donald, and the dance ceased. But the transformation stayed in place.
Adrian had regained his strenght. He was still so tired though, but it was only physical fatigue, a kind of wear that did not affect his skills. He reached out with his mind until he sensed the bloodshot one, wondering whether or not it was okay for men to sing. His mind had been cleared. The pretty one was occupying the space of his mind as well, as was the lanky one.
The lanky one...
Adrian slolwy and gently infested his mind, until he saw what his puppet saw. The courtyard, filled with students. Adrian had been so calm latley, he had disturebed no one, and for the most part, peace enveloped the academy. Everyone had been at ease until these three had arrived.
Adrian worked his way into his puppets mind, the fool had not even noticed him. Suddenly he took control. The cat around his neck flung off violently and he punched the bloodshot one. With that, Adrian let go.
Dawn looked at Donald. "Hey, watch it! You might make enemies." She nodded to a group of boys glaring at them. Dawn then said nothing as she felt Adrian take over Edward. She even watched calmly as he hit Don, before seeking out the boy.
