Hand over hand, foot above foot, the girl climber higher into the foliage. She didn't know what to expect, but it certainly wasn't what she found. Birds and insects living in harmony, the songs of their kind ringing around her. A smile appeared on the lips of the girl and she moved forwards and upwards. Her blonde hair had been tied up into a braid in order to keep it from catching onto other things, and it was proving useful now as leaves and twigs brushed against her face, but didn't catch in her hair.
Light refracted everywhere, shifting through the leaves, and with the patterns on her skin the girl knew that there was something else above her, probably watching her, but she knew better than to look up and make eye contact. But one moment it was light, and there was green flashes in the corner of here eyes, the next it was dark. The birds and other life of the forest had been put on silent, it was as if the entire world had come to a stop causing an eerie aura to settle over the area. Aliannah froze in her climb upwards, not moving a muscle as everything around her seemed to change.
Her eyes grew solid with a serious expression, clearly there was something here that was making the area change. Glancing over at a flower that the girl had noticed earlier, its once pale peach and pink petals now a ghastly blue. Biting her bottom lip she reached over to the plant and moved to brush her fingers against it. She knew that she would be okay touching the plant as it had not previously given off an aura of something that could kill, but the moment her fingers were to touch the plant, they phased through. Eyes widened and the girl looked up finally to find a spot where she could stop and gather herself.
It was only a couple feet away and the girl swiftly maneuvered her body to the spot, before she stopped, sat down in the area and took in her surroundings. She hadn't felt something else come into the area strong enough to change her surroundings, but none-the-less, the girl was on edge. There was something strong enough to do this much change in the area and, seeing as the change continued to stay, it was still there. She took in a deep breath and concentrated on her eyes, one flickering red as a signal that the girl was now looking at more than the surface. She could see the traces of magic, all one type, a magic that she hadn't seen before, but also a magic that had been trained for several years.
Ruby and blue citrine eyes scanned the area, looking for anything else that could be dangerous. However, it seemed like it had been the area that had changed, through dark and ethereal still held much of the same danger as before. So much for going to the training ground to train, what had just happened was something that she had never heard of happening before. Someone was there that wanted to test her, at least that was what the angel in her head was saying. Sending images and emotions of being on guard and being ready for anything that would come her way. Whatever it was, she was to be prepared. Maybe this was how the more experienced mages trained, she hadn't really talked to them about this, she simply assumed that the forest was the forest and it was the same to all mages, depending on how far in you went, but the girl really wasn't all that far in.
But it was also at this time that the girl was glad that the stoat wasn't here, it would have been looking at her like it had told her so, and that they knew something was going to happen, as it usually did. There really wasn't a time that the girl could go out and do something without getting in trouble somewhere or having someone else cause trouble for her, and thinking of this had the girl sighing to herself. Why. Why me.
I am so sorry about the late and shitty post.
