Beyond that place – continued
Spoken words lured like a ball of yarn to a cat. The voices were about as foreign as the groaning of an Orc to her. A man continued to use a small device to attune pictures of her for money making reasons. Odd structures with weird turning wheels sped to a stop as the crowd just got larger and larger as if a king had just walked through the door. She was confused as loud echoing wooing noises flashed towards her.
Her hands cupped around her sharp ears trying to figure out what in the world was going on. Humans....they were so weird to choose technology over magic. She wanted to make a sound but nothing came out of her throat. It was like when she looked into the ripples of water, and saw only a reflection in return. The ground burned the soles of her feet due to the odd foundation on the ground.
“ Mommy, look. It isn’t moving.” A child ran towards her with bright ocean eyes as if she wasn’t unusual but the mother gripped the child’s hands so tightly the skin was blistering.
“ It’s dangerous. Whatever it is.”
“ Clear the way people. Clear the way.” Men dressed in an odd uniform pressed through the crowd like soldiers. Were they here to fight her? She couldn’t sense the twirls of magic here .Nor, where the door went. Before she could grasp anything else, the men had hefted her arms behind her muttering words that confused her. The language they were speaking was slowly becoming understandable but she knew none of the meaning of the words as the men dragged her to the loud vehicles. One shoved her into the back of the vehicle that had bars which reminded her of the carriages they used on savages.
“ This is why they created special corps Jimmy, I swear..” The one who had dragged her spoke while slipping a weird paper into his mouth that puffed out smoke.
“ Not so that they can capture real criminals?”
“ What are real criminals but dressed up wannabe’s anyways.” Some noise like buzzing occurred as the car started up. Then the car began to move taking her past so many trees, and odd places that her brain from the overload fell asleep.
Sumerians court of honors
“ It’s only been a few hours since the door opened.” A nemarian man spoke as whispers equated in a large room decorated with large statues, one long table, and giant amounts of maps everywhere that span the human realm, magic realm, and beast realm.
“ By an elf whose magic should not exist.” A dwarf barely the size of the steel chairs he was in rattled on about lies being flung around by the nevarian elves. Free from magic.
“ Would you all simmer down. This is a court not an appeals to comment whatever it is you have an opinion on. “ The speaker with a black robe banged his fingers three times on the silver table establishing seniority in the court. “ We are here to judge if the Nevarian elves have broken the seal, or if it was merely coincidence their half elf opened the door. We all know the humans chose technology over magic. They may have more advances, but we have the power to control the elements. However, the nevarian’s have had little contact with magic on purpose. Why would that be? “
“ Sir, if you don’t mind my little trollish self, I would think it would be to make sure the humans are keeping to their promise. I mean the species doesn’t live quite as long as we do.” A small creature with odd green ears sat straight up.
