That is wonderful to know

Astien sat calmly as she turned to him and snarled. He was quite surprised that she didn’t burst a blood vessel with the raw, condensed rage he felt within her voice. Now that was some killing intent right there. He ran a critical eye over her performance and noticed a few flaws in it, which lead him to a dilemma. If he responded critically to her in any way, shape, or form, she might kill him in an instant. And that would be unpleasant.

However, she had asked him for aid, and so aid he would supply, and so he responded in the same, level tone, “You’re pronouncing the spell correctly; however, the motions of your wand are off. They need to be precise in order to cast the spell. Like so:” He pointed to a bloody sock on his desk and cast the incantation, flicking his wand in the motions required, and the stain vanished into oblivion. “I’m actually in the middle of an experiment right now, trying to see how much leeway you have in the way of enunciation and wand movement, but as of now it seems that you need to be fairly precise to get it done.”

But this, however, opened up a new train of thought for the aspiring mage. How had spells come to be? Had one person invented the spell, and suddenly everyone could use it? How were the words and wand motions decided, were they a conscious decision or was there some underlying fundamental rule to the wand, like a mathematical equation or some form of art?

“Also, perhaps you might wish to calm yourself a bit. I’m no expert in magic, but perhaps strong emotions could have a negative effect in casting spells, at least early on.”

          Oh dear, he seemed to have ignited a fury that was unstoppable. He saw a deep, dark rage within those blue eyes of her, he could sense the raw, unadulterated fury directed to one sole point in the... more
