"I see. You have made a good choice entrusting her life with me. If she gets harmed, I know healing magic and if we are ambushed, I should be able to slow time long enough to find and neutralize the assailants. She could take on a disguise to keep a low profile. I intend to take on the persona of a priestess or healer from a far off land. Adriesta could potentially disguise as my neophyte or novitiate. I should be able to tailor a robe for her, although I might have to make a few adjustments to my disguise myself such as using an underdress or bodysuit instead of a simple turtleneck top and shorts. Also with my new ability, we could potentially hide in the past if necessary. We would just need to make sure that we have as little impact as possible as we could potentially drastically alter the future, which could bring both good and bad effects. Another option could be to hide her in my personal dimension. It isn't as big or detailed as Faena's, but it should do." Aenera said to Ajax. She then pulled out her commu and pulled up her number to show it to him. "If you need to contact me, here you go."

----Yfirryn----

Kren knew where the museum of technology was. He led Jayce and Yfirryn to it and paid the miniscule entrance fee. The building was huge. It was about 14 floor high and spanned the area of a stadium. They were each given a floor plan of the museum and right after the ticket gate was an exhibition on communication technology, going from sending notes by birds, to sending audio-crystals, to sending image crystals, to stationary crystals that could communicate with each other, to archaic and modern commus. The oldest "commu" on displace was captioned: "Vyyzantfyri Empire 193 B.V.F. (Before Vyyzantfyri fall/defeat of Vyyzantfyr): Said to have been invented by the first tyrant, Aenfya the Eternal." The commu had a number of crystals on it and two rows of buttons with symbols on them, possibly to dial numbers. Many of the crystals were still glowing dimly.

"Aenfya the Eternal is such a rarely used name for the First Tyrant. Usually people use Queen Aenfya, Empress Aenfya or just First Tyrant. But the Eternal part makes sense. It is said she managed to stop her aging, leader her to be over two centuries old at the time of her death. It is amazing that she made this so long ago. You'd expect commus to be a lot younger, but then again, a lot of knowledge of technology was lost after the fall of Vyyzantfyr." Kren said.

"Kren, how old is this thing then?" Yfirryn asked. Kren answered: "Given that the year is 461 after the golden age, the commu is probably 1804 years old, which makes it even more amazing since most of the crystals in it still seem functional."

"Of course, I'd need to contact you. Eventually." He said as he copied it on his commu and put it away. He began considering Aenera's options and nodded. "Just a simple disguise should be able to throw them off a little. For now, I suppose we could dye her hair black and change her eye color to a sort of navy blue. Perhaps, even cut her hair a bit. That way she won't come off as anything close to a Snezhnayan royal. She'd also be able to blend in more with the common folk in Avastenir." He then took a peak inside and then looked back at Aenera. "Let's give her the makeover unfit for a Snezhnayan royal, shall we?" He said before heading inside with Aenera.

Adriesta was still sitting in her chair staring blankly before she heard Aenera and Ajax come in. "So... What now?" She asked as she looked at the both of them. Ajax took a deep breath before clapping his hands together. "Now, we're going to give you a makeover. Just a simple change of dye for your hair and eye color. But I'll also be cutting your hair. Don't worry, I cut my siblings' hair all the time. It'll look good. Promise." He said with his usual friendly smile but it felt genuine and not some sort of mask he'd use to coerce enemies. Not that he ever done that. Usually, it was just a face he showed when in the joy of battle. Adriesta took a minute to consider before nodding in agreement. Ajax soon turned to Aenera and made way for her. "Alright. Aenera, if you would." He said pretty much telling Aenera to start the process. The plan was to just change the hair color and eye color to Ajax's specifics and then he'd cut her hair in the end. Afterwards, he was going to give her some clothes she'd definitely be comfortable in.

"the Vyyzantfyri Empire sure sounds amazing, hard to believe this is so old." Jayce says looking at the ancient Commu. Jayce was really only paying half attention, most of his focus was on plans to start learning magic as quickly as he can. His first goal was to focus on learning spells to supplement his current fighting style. Physical enhancement, sensory boosting or self regeneration magic was going to be his best options probably. Later he'd have to learn offensive spells but he already has an effective style so it's best to improve that first, trying to start from scratch with a whole new style now would be too inefficient. He was not even attempting to hide the fact that his thoughts were elsewhere, he saw no reason to.

Ajax wanted Aenera to dye Adriesta's hair black and make her eyes blue. "Changing eye color is Faena's thing. I can only manipulate time and space and heal. But yes, I will get dye and change her hair color." Aenera said while opening a small tear to grab black hair dye. She didn't even look, she seemed to know where to grab. Aenera now grabbed a small tub and had Adriesta put her head over it to not make a mess. Aenera took off her gloves and massaged the dye into Adriesta's hair. Within about 30 minutes, Aenera had dyed Adriesta's hair black. "Faena, if you may change her eyes to blue." Aenera said. Faena sighed and nodded. "If I must." She said. Faena held her hand over Adriesta's eyes and with relative ease, Adriesta's eyes turned blue.

"I still believe we should give her some sort of role and backstory though so that us being together makes sense. If I just said I was a priestess, possibly a higher ranking priestess from a far off land, then it would be weird for common folk to be tagging along. I cannot call myself a mage with this getup because then the academy and arcane authorities might find out something and blow my cover and when my cover is blown, Adriesta's cover might be blown too. So I'd say either Adriesta should go with a neophyte or novitiate role or be entourage as an administrative member of whatever temple we go with. For a neophyte I can get her the clothing for it." Aenera said.


----Yfirryn----

"When we get back home, I can show you how to use magic. Who knows if you can use one especially well or if you are able to learn multiple types." Yfirryn said to Jayce. Kren then added: "Aenera can possibly show you how to use Chronos magic too, but Chronos magic needs a lot mana. I myself struggle with trying to use it. Maybe you can learn it well enough to slow time at least a little." As they walked along the exhibits they can across the section with autos and trucks. The oldest auto was a couple hundred years old and used the mana of it's driver directly. Yet the info pamphlet spoke of vehicles that possibly were used in the Vyyzantfyri Empire that ran on the same principle, however there were no artifacts found to display.

Ajax shook his head while he was getting ready to cut Adriesta's hair. "The backstory doesn't have to be that complex. You could just say she's a friend from work or within the area. The ultranationalists are shifty but they're not so smart. They always want to confirm intel before acting. Right now, the only way is to actually approach you guys and ask up front. They don't want to risk outsiders knowing about Snezhnaya's problems and all." He said as he began cutting Adriesta's hair. Since her hair was white before, it wasn't entirely black but it was a good mix in-between and it was still relatively black, more like a raven color than anything. It oddly suited her. "I have some clothes from the pack I brought with me. They're mine but I'm sure Adriesta can fit into them pretty well." He said as he continued. With a little bit of time, he cut and trimmed her hair so it would still look nice and even styled it for her. Afterwards, he cleaned up the bits of hair on her shoulders and used his water magic to clean it all up. He then put some clothes on the table for Adriesta. It was some navy blue colored jeans, a black tank top as well as a black thin button-up cardigan. "Change into this and... Just try to look like an average person. That means no guns." Adriesta looked at him raising an eyebrow seemingly troubled. "Then what do I do when I have to fight?" Ajax looked at her and shrugged. "Couldn't you just create a spear? Or even a bow with your geo magic?" She blinked a bit before sighing. Though, having not changed clothes yet, she looked towards Faena before asking. "Is... Is there a room I can borrow to change?" Ajax coughed. "I mean, I could just go outside." Adriesta looked at him with a troubled look again. True, everyone there but him was a girl but she still wasn't comfortable changing right there.

"Hard to say. I only learned two spells before she put that seal on. one that creates harmless sensory effects and one that could light a small flame like a candle. They were very simple spells." Jayce says with a shrug, "I have a decently large amount I think, it feels like my pool has grown over the years that I've been training but I don't actually know. I'll be willing to try anything, but I think it would be best to learn spells to help me in direct hand to hand combat."

"There are guest rooms in the back where you can get changed. Just follow the hallway. The last four doors are guest rooms." Faena said. Aenera then spoke up: "Speaking of which, I need to make adjustments to my disguise myself." Aenera then disappeared into one of the rooms to adjust her disguise. She felt that wearing a long black turtleneck dress under the white hooded robe would seem more convincing of someone claiming to be clergy from a far off land, additionally with black thighhighs with a garter belt. She also prepared a black hood in case she needed to conceal her face. After changing and putting the black bridal gauntlets back on, she came back out.

"Honestly, I could just go as a Vyyzantfyri priestess. If someone investigated deeper if I went with a culture I didn't really know then the disguise could fall apart. I will say that I am the village priestess of Exkarranfa village. Most Vyyzantfyri's know Exkarranfa is almost abandoned and barely know anyone from there. Usually there are just a handful of seniors and maybe two non-senior hunters that still live there." Aenera said. "But we should maybe get Kren, Yfirryn and Jayce here to fill them in." Aenera grabbed her commu and opened a miniature tear. "I will see where they are and I guess Faena can transport them here."

Aenera then texted Kren.

----Yfirryn----

"We can see what we can do for you." Yfirryn said to Jayce. Then Kren's commu vibrated in his pocket. Kren then spoke: "Speaking of the devil. I just got a text from Aenera! She writes: Where are you?" Kren then wrote back: "We got evacuated to downtown and instead of waiting for things to clear up, we decided to go to the museum of technology. We got to the auto exhibit." Aenera then wrote: "Hang on. Coming to get ya." "Wait what?" Kren said. Suddenly, a tear opened up under the trio and they fell through. They ended up in Faena's dimension in the room where Aenera, Faena and Ajax were in.

Yfirryn looked around. He saw two women reminiscent of his sister. One had brown hair and rainbow eyes, but gave off an unfamiliar and even malignant aura. He could feel the evil intent from her. The other woman wore a white hooded robe, had rainbow eyes and rainbow hair. Her hair was the absurd length Aenera had and her aura felt like that of Aenera, but even stronger now. "Sis. What happened to you?" Yfirryn carefully asked Aenera, still sort of unsure if it was her or not. Aenera replied: "Faena showed me how to get rainbow eyes and travel back in time." Yfirryn didn't know Faena but assumed the other woman was Faena. Yfirryn moved close to Aenera and whispered: "That woman is terrifying. I can feel her malice and her power. Who is she?" "That is my teacher, Faena. Luckily she doesn't leave this place. I am quite aware of her power. She was able to move back a thousand years and back to the present and didn't even break a sweat. I have some suspicions who she might really be but she is still a mystery." Aenera replied.

"So you are Yfirryn? You look so much like your sister and you mother. You turned out so cute and pretty. You almost seem like a younger sister to Aenera." Faena said. Yfirryn hid behind Aenera. He felt really, really uncomfortable around Faena. Faena giggled.

"Anyways, when Hekate gets back, we can fill you in on our disguises. We just need to keep a lower profile and avoid negative attention to our persons for a while." Aenera said.

"Anyways, when Hekate gets back, we can fill you in on our disguises. We just need to keep a lower profile and avoid negative attention to our persons for a while." Aenera said.
When Adriesta came out, she was definitely unrecognizable. She wore the clothes Ajax had provided to her, especially putting a bit more style into it. She let the cardigan fall and reveal her shoulders since it was just that loose. It was a bit oversized that if she were to try to wear it properly, it wouldn't look good. It'd look like something similar to a parent giving their child their jacket. She'll fetch herself some proper clothes later, but this is what it's going to be for now.

Ajax was still there too but didn't bother to introduce himself to Kren, Jayce and Yfirryn. He immediately went over to Adriesta to talk about more details about her disguise. "Alright. Just for some finishing touches, we can't have you going by Hekate anymore but not even Adriesta. From now on, you'll be known as Estelle. That's actually your middle name officially, but we can still use it. As for your last name... Well, you can decide that. But anything that sounds Snezhnayan and your official last name, Castielo, is off the table. Not even Fregata." Adriesta, now Estelle sighed before nodding. "Alright. I'll think of one." She said before returning to Aenera and the others.

She saw that Jayce and Yfirryn were there as well as Kren. She waved a bit awkwardly before speaking. "Hey you guys. It's... It's me, Hekate." She still seemed out of it. The entire situation was still settling down in her head but she'll just have to get used to it. Ajax just stood off in the corner with a friendly smile but he too had somewhat the same vibes as Faena. He's just waiting until he could move out of the pocket dimension with the others to report to the Tsaritsa.

Once they appear in the room Jayce looks around. He takes in Faena's appearance and posture before moving over to Aenera, "you ok?" he was aware it was a stupid question, of course she's ok, she's Aenera. He still felt the need to ask though. Jayce himself seemed different. Not physically, but something about him has changed since Aenera last saw him. Faena does bother him a little bit but that isn't what he needs to focus on for now.

When Hekate came out and revealed herself, Yfirryn was amazed. "Are you really Hekate?" He asked. "Wow, you look so different. I wouldn't have recognized you." When Jayce asked whether Aenera was okay, Aenera said: "Yeah, why. Is it because of Faena? She is the one who taught me the more advanced parts of Chronos magic. Don't let her aura put you off. As long as I am around she wont dare to harm any of my friends. Although something about her tells me she may be closely related to the first tyrant. She is over 1000 years old so I wouldn't doubt that she is within the first five generations after Aenfya. If it is about the rainbow eyes, it is because Faena took me back and forth 1000 years to show me how travelling back in time is and that seems to turn eyes rainbow colored." Then noticing the magical aura and flow of Jayce, she asked: "You seem different. Your mana is flowing better than before and it feels stronger. Did Kren or Yfirryn help you a little with that? I can teach you some spells if it works with you."

Kren then asked Aenera: "Are you disguising yourself because of the incident in the capital? Because a lot of people seem to see you two as heroes while some failed at trying to demonize you." "On my part it is mostly because of that, for Hekate it might be more complex. Without revealing too much, the news reports might lure enemies of hers. It is up to her or Ajax to reveal the exact details." Aenera responded.

"Anyways, I will go as village priestess Sentia os Xenfes of the Exkarranfa village temple." Aenera said. Yfirryn then remarked: "You look more like a head priestess and you will need to hide your aura somehow if you want to avoid being detected by magic users. It is really strong and while they might not recognize you as Aenera, their interest still will be piqued."

She nodded to Yfirryn. "Well, yes. Something came up and this was... necessary." Hekate said. Ajax, the other man in the room who hadn't said anything looked at the group and kept his silence. Soon, Hekate looked at Ajax before he nodded. Since it was entirely up to them whether they give them the details about their situation, Hekate might as well break the news to them. "According to... Ajax, here, I'm the daughter of the Tsaritsa of Snezhnaya. Adriesta Castielo." She said. "Due to some circumstances back home, there are ultranationalists coming after me so I have to continue go in hiding, which was pretty much my entire life so far." She let out a sigh before finishing up the last of the stuff to discuss about their situation. "For now, I can't go by the name or identity as Hekate Fregata anymore since I pretty much revealed myself back at the palace. You have to call me Estelle, don't worry about my last name for now. Until things improve, this is how I have to go about things." She finished obviously seeming stressed out. She then looked at Kren and Jayce wondering if they caught all of that. She probably figured Yfirryn picked it all up so she didn't really have to elaborate further. That was the situation at the moment and she had to continue keeping low. That probably also meant discontinuing her work as a hitwoman, it'd be suspicious that after Hekate's disappearance another hitwoman newbie with just as much skill came into the picture. Now she's literally playing a game of undercover survival. She had to stay off the grid so she wouldn't be in as much danger.

"Well she does make me uncomfortable, but I was more talking about what happened at that meeting." When she notices the difference he scratches the back of his head, "It's a bit of a long story but... yes Kren managed to help me regain the ability to use magic. I would be happy to learn from you and Yffiryn." after hearing Hekate's explanation, "we'll be here to help you out if anything happens." He smiles, "we'll play it by ear and make sure you stay safe."

"Oh wow." Yfirryn said to Adriesta. "You are full of surprises. Then I guess as a prince, I humbly greet you. But since you have to disguise yourself anyways, I will treat you in a familiar fashion like I did so far. Since I havent known you for long, I guess it shouldn't take too long getting used to calling you Estelle."

Yfirryn then ended up replying to Aenera: "I guess I have to say, please to meet you Sentia. Boy it is going to be hard not calling you sis." "You should get used to it." Aenera said. Then replying to Jayce's clarification of his question, Aenera responded: "Well, we were ambushed by corrupt council members who had hired assassins to kill not only me but also the king. Hekate only ended up getting caught up in it posing as my bodyguard. Since sparing the conspiring council members who have seen them being let go by bribed courts, I killed them all. Someone had to do it as they have been a plague for this country for over a decade now. I told the king and the council members they could be honest with the story since I wasn't the aggressor. After that I teleported here with Hekate."

"So what should be do now? Should we head back to the house and I give my auto a makeover and we then maybe head to the beach or a foreign country?" Aenera asked the others.

Estelle just nodded at Yfirryn in acceptance. Pretty much, no one else knows her best in the group other than Aenera considering she's the only person whose spent the most time with. Ajax doesn't really count, he has things to do and can't tag along with or else it'd be suspicious. When she heard Aenera ask the group what they should do now and gave some options, Estelle cleared her throat. "So we'll just let the tear be? I doubt we'd have a bigger distraction than the one my colleague will pull off coincidentally." She asked as she looked at Aenera. It was going to be a one time thing unless that particular hitwoman has another hit within the area. But considering the method, they know that it'll never be discreet so if another sudden explosion of similar scale... If the authorities had a gold coin for every massive explosion with a particularly unique fallout would occur, they'd have two. But it'd be weird that it happened twice. She probably wouldn't pick up any hits from the area for awhile so if they wanted to close the tear, it'd have to be at that moment.

"I guess it's better for the country that they are dead..." He was still uncomfortable with the fact she killed them but understood it was necessary. Jayce thinks for a moment, "well even with the assassin the security will no doubt be on edge and the city itself just suffered a blow to the council, even if it had to be done. Even if we can get in and close the tear getting out of the city will be far more difficult I think. I don't like the thought of leaving it there and everything in me is say we should close it but... We have to consider our safety first. Aenera will be too drained to help us out of a sticky situation and it's too risky to put Estelle in a situation to be noticed." Jayce sighs, "I hate to say it but... I think we need to leave it for now. I feel so much stronger now, but since Yffiryn and I will be the only ones who can safely act without consequences it isn't doable."

"I agree with Jayce. If we close the tear and the explosion is a diversion, especially after what happened at the council, they will put the city on lockdown. The commu and appliance scramble will only last a couple minutes. That wont be enough time to escape. It will take us at least half an hour to get out of the city. And for me to make a portal to somewhere outside of the city, I need to not only have the energy, but also have been to the place and Quarrytown and Vyyzantfyr are too inconvenient for the plans especially since I need to take my auto with us. The bigger the portal or tear, the more energy is needed. Additionally if we are caught, our disguises are for naught. So how do you expect to pull that off?" Aenera said to Adriesta/Estelle. "I also don't want to siphon mana off you because I could easily pull too much and end up endangering you. So if you want me to close the tear, you better have a damn good escape plan."

Estelle blinked in surprise. Was Aenera... actually pissed off at her? She honestly felt like she was being attacked. It sort of hurt her a bit. Felt like betrayal. Sure, she might have been over exaggerating about it that she did make a mistake, but she didn't think Aenera would give her this kind of attitude. She sort of shrunk a bit where she stood, lowering her head with a bit of a sour expression on her face as she crossed her arms then looking off to the side. "Never mind then." She mumbled. She honestly wouldn't mind making a plan by making some golems to run rampant for a bit since they are pretty high in defense in terms of structure and statistically with magic resistant properties. She could also use stealth magic and concealment to cause another diversion or even cover their escape. But after that, she only realized that maybe she was being way too friendly to these people. Maybe she should hold back on her true intentions and feelings. Perhaps even closing herself off from them. She sighed before regaining her composure and shaking her head, heading towards the door. As she was heading out, she spoke in a firm and rather cold tone. "I'm going to look at the scenery while I have time. Just call me when we're leaving." On her way out, she brushed past Aenera nearly hitting their shoulder. She also had clenched her fists a bit as she headed out. Once she went through the door, she took a sharp turn out of their sight so she could have some time to herself until it was time to leave. She just looked at literally anything other than the direction she came from. Perhaps it'd be best if she just went back to Snezhnaya with Ajax immediately. She was foolish to actually trust someone on the first day upon meeting them and it was only the second day. Probably twenty four hours or less. And what did she care about the tear? It's not like it affects her or anyone she really cared about. Whether it closes or not wasn't her business. She cursed under her breath as she wrapped up her thoughts about the whole thing and just looked at the sky for a bit. "Fuck..."

Jayce was confused and concerned, "I'm... not sure what just happened. Maybe it's stress from everything that happened so quickly?" Jayce looks over to Aenera, "we should give her some time to calm down." He thinks for a moment, "it shouldn't harm anyone if left uncheck.... right?" Jayce asked, hoping their decision to leave it as is wouldn't cause more harm. Jayce sighs, "not that there's anything we can do for now though." He decides to try to change the subject instead, "so where are we off to now?"

"Did I say something wrong?" Aenera said after Hekate stormed out. She figured that her stern tone may have been misinterpreted as anger to Hekate and went after her. Outside she went to Hekate and said: "If my tone was kind of harsh I am sorry. I wasn't angry. I just expected you to have a good plan to pull off that stunt. If I offended you in anyway just tell." Aenera said worried about Hekate.

Meanwhile inside, Kren and Yfirryn were wondering what was going on.

(sorry about the short post)

Hekate was just sky gazing before Aenera came out and approached her. She gave a cold expression at first before lightening up a bit. She was still thinking that she shouldn't put her full trust in Aenera nor treat them as if they knew each other for a long time. She's seen how this world and how it works. She didn't give an initial response before she finally decided to speak her mind. "...Learning how to speak appropriately is a tricky thing once you start learning more expressions and vocabulary. If you just wanted to ask me if I had a plan, you could've just asked me straight instead of adding needless words in there that could mean something else. Less is more." She lectured. She leaned against the wall of the stone house as she collected her thoughts. "...I did have a plan. Two actually. But neither probably effective without doing actual harm to the public. One of them was letting some of my golems run rampant and cause trouble. But that'll definitely hurt the public. I could make another diversion elsewhere, cause some trouble. But I need to find trouble first. Thus again, hurting the public. Perhaps we should just leave this alone, hm?" She said as she crossed her arms. Honestly, she was just not going to use her powers and shed blood unless she was going to get paid. That was her job occupation after all, she'd only provide those kinds of services if there was money in exchange. Even then though, there was no way to get this done without getting dirty.

Jayce wasn't surprised Aenera went after Hekate, it made sense. It was probably also for the best that Jayce stayed back when there was nothing he could do. He doesn't know how to help with problems between people, even working at the shop just politely smiling and asking people to calm down usually worked for a little bit but it never solved the problem. Learning how to deal with people's emotions isn't really possible right now, but one thing is. Jayce turns to Yffiryn, "when my mom taught me those first two spells it felt like they just came naturally, I think it won't come as easy now but it's worth a try, what is a spell I can start working on? I need to do.... something." His voice carried obvious frustration, though the cause could not be discerned easily.

Possibly a cultural difference. Aenera though in regards to the sensitive with the expressions. She then listened to Hekate and added: "There might be a way after all. But we would need to leave the city first for the plan. By my plan, we could make a portal to the academy from outside of the city, close the seal and I could have mana crystals prepared to sap mana from so I can open a portal back to the outside of the city. Should work out, don't you think" Aenera wasn't completely sure if that plan would work out or whether it will find agreement from the others, but it was at least an idea.

Meanwhile back inside Yfirryn listens to Jayce and replies: "Here I can teach you a basic heal spell and maybe dark magic. Hold your hands like this and concentrate your mana flow on yourself and say heal." Yfirryn then demonstrated, holding his hands over his chest and said "heal". A light emitted from his hands. "Of course, if you are not ill or injured, it wont do anything. But if your hands glow, you know it works."

Hekate didn't say anything as she listened on. Not even a change from her appeared. After hearing it, she didn't appear to give it much thought and just spoke bluntly. "Perhaps. Sounds like the best one." She said in agreement but with a hint of apathy. To her, it didn't really matter much if the tear was closed or not. She honestly didn't know why Aenera was telling her this. Though, she supposed it doesn't hurt to know so she doesn't ask questions about the stock of mana crystals later. With a plan like this, there probably wouldn't be a need for some sort of distraction. It might be too troubling to time the two events right anyway. A lot of things can go wrong between the two of them after all.

Jayce nods and takes a deep breath. Jayce holds out his hands and says, "heal". His hands don't glow the first time but he keeps trying several times, adjusting his mana each time. At the 5th or so attempt the spell activates correctly. Jayce smiles, it's a small step but with the ability to recover from damage he can fight while holding back slightly less. He might still have far to go but it's still progress toward becoming stronger, "I did it... might have over did it a little in the moment. I'll have to slow it down a bit for future spells." He still definitely has a good amout of mana left but he spent a lot on attempting hte spell so much.

Aenera then said: "Let's go to the others and then get back to the city. Then we can drive out and if you feel like it, we could close that tear and get out without getting into a fight or getting into any big trouble. Otherwise I say we head to a beach area or to the north like to Snezhnaya or so. Although Snezhnaya may be difficult at the moment." Aenera knew about the ramifications of going to Snezhnaya, especially with Hekate being the princess Adriesta and all but Adriesta was to be crowned though. Aenera only needed to keep her safe and with the rainbow eyes tracking cloaked enemies would be easier and time reversal could help save her in case Aenera failed to protect her.

Aenera went to the door and put her hand on the knob. "Ready when you are." She said to Hekate/Adriesta.

Back inside, Yfirryn clapped in applause when Jayce managed to do the heal spell. "Good job! You are a quick learner. At this rate, I can teach you another ten spells by today next week." Yfirryn said to Jayce. Yfirryn then hugs Jayce. "You will turn out to be a great mage or battlemage one day." He says. Kren then adds in: "You cant learn much magic from me since I am more about theory and alchemy. But Yfirryn and Aenera should be able to teach you well."
