Chapter 17

They decided on fast food for dinner and were back on the freeway in less than thirty minutes. Since Morrigan knew about magic, their previous decision to not discuss it went out the window.

“So, speaking of magic,” Rozlynd started, “can anyone else tell when someone is using magic nearby? When we get to Cirrus’s late and you guys have already started, I swear I can feel you guys doing magic. It’s like the pulsating of the power surrounding me intensifies.”

“I never really thought about it, but now that you mention it, yeah, I can,” Aerianna agreed. “But I have to be really close to the person and they have to be using magic at the time.”

“I can tell, and I think I can even discern who is doing what, but like Aeri said, I have to be really close to them to figure it out,” Zarina added. “What about you Iris? Is it any different for you?”

“It is. I can tell when someone is doing magic and identify who it is. I can also tell what they’re doing as well as determine how strong they are magically. They don’t have to be nearby, but I can’t discern as much when I’m far away.”

“Really? That’s cool. How come you never taught us how to figure that stuff out?”

“I guess I assumed you guys were able to tell as well.”

“Do you think you could teach it to us now?”

“I dunno. We can give it a shot. Which part are you the most interested in?”

“I wanna be able to judge if the person I’m up against is stronger than me,” Rozlynd said immediately.

“Let’s start with that, then. I think it’ll be easier to accomplish while we’re all in a small space anyway. Vi and Zarina, can you both fill with power, please? Not until you’re bursting, but as much as you can comfortably hold. Thank you,” Iris added after both friends complied with her request. “Now, Roz and Aeri, concentrate on Vi and Zarina. Compare their aura—their essence—to one another and see if you can determine which is stronger.”

“I don’t feel a difference,” Rozlynd said after a few minutes of concentrating. “Do you, Aeri?”

“I can tell they’re both filled with power, but beyond that, no.”

“Hmmm. Okay, let me add myself to the mix. See if anything changes.”

“Yup. That’s obvious. You’re stronger. I have no idea how I know that. I just know you are,” Aeri announced after a few seconds. “But I don’t know how any of you compare to me. Just to each other.”

“I’ll have to think on that one. What about you, Roz?”

“I can’t tell if I’m stronger or they are. I can tell Iris is the strongest of the three of you, though. It’s almost like a higher frequency is surrounding her. At least, that’s what it feels like to me,” Roz offered.

“I’m not getting that. It’s more like. . . like . . .” Aerianna couldn’t find the right descriptors.

“Like her presence feels massive?”

“That’s not very nice, Morrigan,” Iris admonished.
