Many days, or maybe even weeks have passed since Leila activated her sacrificial magic. At that moment, her body was completely eaten away by the spell that she had used, seemingly to be never recovered again. But only minutes later, something strange had happened in the Forest that many people steer away from. A spot that is undisturbed by man or the wild, a pristine piece of nature that was left completely untouched by the living. In this spot, a small egg formed seemingly out of nothing. It's surface glossy and of pure white color which was only slightly disturbed by a barely visible blue pattern that didn't seem to have any order to it whatsoever. And over the time that passed, strange flowers slowly formed around, eating away on the piece of paradise. Something that was probably not very often seen even in the world of magic, flora that was completely new to this world with the ability to suck magic out of the Earth and air, feeding it into the egg that was connected to the foliage via vines and roots. In a certain view, it was probably as if the Earth itself laid this egg and was now growing it at the price of it'S own magical energy. And indeed, the mere presence of this thing was slowly corroding the area. Strange venom and toxins were forming all over the nearby trees, eating away at them like some parasitic bug. And they coated the egg too, perhaps as some manner of defensive mechanism against predators that might find their way into this place and decide to use the egg as their dinner. But given it's location, it's rest was completely undisturbed by anything at all. The only forms of life that were in the area were indeed insects that could never pose any form of danger to the forming life.
And recently, the egg finally entered the final stage of growth. After all, it was large enough that you could argue a whole human could be fit inside of it without too much of a problem. Having absorbed enough magical energy, the object started generating rather large amount of magical energy itself, perhaps even enough to attract some unwanted attention. Especially with the unfamiliar nature all around, it would be no surprise if some researchers or other oddities found their way to this place sooner or later. Could something like that happen before the egg hatches. It certainly was possible, and if it were to happen, then the survival of life inside of the egg would depend solely on the one that finds is. After all, the toxin that was protecting it wasn't strong enough to kill or drive away the common human, especially if they would wield magic. It's design would probably tell anyone that it's purpose was to drive only smaller predators away, the sort that you could commonly find in this forest. Maybe it was all planned, it's location and focus on growth instead of defense. And even the fact that there was very little that could be actually damaged in the area, as the slime slowly spread to anything that was nearby, eventually forming a sight that could remind anyone a scene of horror where the heroes are about to encounter the vile beast that will then start hunting them down. But yes, the toxin was indeed just about the only defense this object had. Thankfully, the way it was shaking from time to time, there was no doubt that it would soon be cracked and it's contents revealed to the whole wide word. Something probably very unexpected and unusual, new and refreshed. The birth is nigh.
