Part Eight Part Nine We came back down, and Walpole and Percival prepared a special midday meal for me. They served a haggis and other Scottish delights. After we had eaten, they pulled out a deck of cards and small bottle of whisky. They magicked up some tumblers and ice, and we had a very […]

Part One Part Two Part Three Part Four I tried to see the fabled city through the sheets of rain below the coach. There were a few spires and blobs of buildings visible, but with the current weather, I wouldn’t have been able to tell a new building from one that was fifteen hundred years […]

As with others who had just finished the Sanctification Spell, she positively glowed. She looked around and her eyes fixed on me. “Sir […]

Part One “Do you think it is even possible to avoid war?” I asked, perhaps a bit tartly. “I know that le Dauphin did not spend much time as a gnome, but he Sanctified in war magic. Le chevalier de Oualpaul spent thirty years as a gnome. He not only Sanctified in war magic, but […]

Part One Part Two Part Three Part Four Sovereign princes and their heirs may have many interests. They may love art or music or architecture. They may endeavor to be Renaissance men, writing poetry and studying ancient arts, such as horsemanship. But their primary responsibility is to defend their domains and their subjects. This has […]

Part One Part Two Part Three The next day was easily as nerve-wracking a wait as the day before. Antoine, Percival, Walpole, and I spoke of various topics as we waited. It was only twelve-and-a-half hours before we felt the same sort of magical pulse as we had yesterday, except that the pulse was much […]

Part One “The way I see it, this breaks down into two parts,” I said. “First, we have the problem of reversing the Sanctification Spells that have gone badly. Second, we need to find who has been spreading these flyers with information about the Sanctification Spell.” We were in the same conference room in Paris […]

Part 1 2 3 4 5 Part Six Dusty started undoing all of the magic spells that still lingered around the conference room. He quickly pulled Walpole and Percival aside for a few words, and then led us back to the door that joined our hotel. I retrieved my baggage from my room, and then […]

Group Writing: The Mystery of the Missing Mermaid, Part Two

 

I hopped down from my barstool and took a few steps towards them, evaluating the situation. It looked like the five of them were ready to start throwing spells, which could be detrimental to Larry’s business, other clientele, and furnishings.

“Hey,” I yelled to get their attention as I navigated through the tables to get to them. That redirected their attention. All five started throwing curses and jinxes my way. I merely put out my hand to “catch” them and kept walking towards them.
