Marian's red curly hair swirled from the draft below her. She stared nervously down at her dangling feet.
"If I throw you off the cliff, can you soar to safety? No? You want to find out?" the cloaked mage said to the quivering skinny girl she held over the steep ravine. "I could teach you…for a price, of course.”
Marian would have been ecstatic that a wind mage offered to help her study spells. It had always been her dream to be able to cast a fireball like a fire mage, create a whirlpool like a water mage, bend metal to her will like a blacksmith, unhinge a boulder off a rock face like an earth mage, or even soar through the air like a wind mage—like this wind mage can do in a heartbeat.
