“I already know that you can throw things accurately, Kate, but I want you to be able to do it both physically and mentally.”

“Okay.” Kate levitated the next knife and aimed it at the target. Just as she released it and a pebble hit her in the small of the back. She flinched, of course, and the knife missed the target and embedded itself in the fence. She turned and glared at him. “Oi! What was that for?” Read the rest of this entry »

“Okay,” Kate said. “What does she look like so I can avoid her.”

“Good question,” he said. “Hold on.” He held out his hand and an image hovered above it. A dark-skinned woman with long black hair, glowing blue eyes and wings of pale blue ice. “This is Alsia.”

Kate stared at the image, there was something familiar about the woman but she couldn’t place her and she was certain she had never seen anyone with ice wings. She commented on that and he snorted. Read the rest of this entry »

Kate woke up about one in the morning. Instinctively she reached for the light switch then paused as she realised she could see perfectly. It must be an aspect of her new powers. She sat up slowly and carefully moved her head from side to side before sighing in relief. It had stopped hurting. Whatever her benefactor had done had fixed her completely because her head hadn’t felt this clear in a year or so. She pulled herself in to a cross-legged in position on the bed and began lifting things in he bedroom as he had instructed. She started with perfume bottles and hairbrushes and working up to furniture. Read the rest of this entry »

About an hour later Kate stirred and Darlryan hurried back to her side.

“Urgh!” She groaned. “My head hurts worse than ever. And that hurt even worse than my head does.”

“I know,” he said in a soft tone. “But it should be the last time you have to suffer one of these. We’ll need to watch out in case whoever did this to you tries to relay them.” Read the rest of this entry »

Darlryan held Kate’s shoulder’s as she vomited and reached out gently to touch her mind. The explosion of pain made him pull back and stare at her. What on earth was going on with her? Practicising shouldn’t cause an effect like this unless he’d overworked her and he didn’t think that he had. He shot a mental instruction to Laxmi to bring some painkillers and continued rubbing her shoulders until the heaving stopped. By that time Laxmi had returned with water and some co-codamol. Kate swallowed them with a genuinely grateful ‘thank you’ and looked up at him wearily. Read the rest of this entry »

“I know,” Alsia said. “But dropping them back into that hell is not acceptable.”

“I understand,” Tilaran’s mother said. “We’re working on some sort of alternative warded confinement but so far it wouldn’t hold.” Read the rest of this entry »

“We have a visitor!” Tilaran must have removed whatever ward had been keeping his wife way because she was standing in the doorway with her arms folded. “You should activate the wards and see her off but I’m sure that you won’t.”

“What?” Tilaran said. “Visitor?” Read the rest of this entry »

AN: Sorry for not updating for a month. On the upside I now have plenty of buffer so I should be able to maintain posting from now on.

Kate looked at the ball quizzically. “What am I supposed to do with this thing?”

“Make it float in midair,” he said. “It’s nice and light so it won’t strain your new powers. Eventually you’ll be able to lift much heavier weights with your mind but it’s wise to start with something easy.”

“Ah,” she said. “So it’s something like psychokinesis?” Read the rest of this entry »

Darlryan watched Kate as she struggled with the task. Right now she was chewing on her lip and muttering to herself as she concentrated on her task. Twice already she had looked over at the bottle while breathing deeply. He wondered if she even realised that the promise of reward was a double edged sword. It gave her reason to keep calm but it also put her under more pressure because hse wanted it so much, which made her more likely to lose her temper in the long run.

“You’re not human are you?” Kate asked Laxmi as she showed her around. “You feel like one of those creatures that attacked those boys and I’ve noticed some of them around here as we did the tour…”

Laxmi looked back at her and gave a warm smile. “That’s a fair comment. I am precisely like one of them… well part of me is. I don’t attack people though. Nor do any of us who Dar has recruited.” Read the rest of this entry »
