glacialis 14, 1593, afternoon
falian lowlands, 20 miles northwest of deliciae
It was a straight shoot down into a cluster of pointed rocks and trecherous waters if she took another step forward. Zola would rather not. She liked the place she was standing, not by much, better. The Mystic stared for one more second before shivering and moving back a foot or so. Shaking her head to try and erase the memory of the dizzying height, she began picking her way back to Deliciae.
Her eyes shifted about nervously and she hugged her newly picked herbs closer to herself. Zola didn't exactly mean to venture out so far; she disliked getting so far away from the castle or places she knew. Before she knew it, however, she was already out of sight of the city.
Zola's whole body whipped around until she was facing the opposite direction. "H-Hello...?" She mumbled, cerulean irises darting around hectically. There was no one there, but there was a snapped twig laying behind her. Did she do that?
You're so paranoid! Zola scolded herself, turning back to Deliciae, taking a deep breath, and resuming her walk. It wasn't long until she thought she heard steps behind her, but, when she stopped, so did the noises. She stopped three times before she began to get scared and frustrated. Suddenly, she spun on her heel and called, "I'm n-not joking! I know fighting... stuff."
The mermaid gazed behind her for a long two minutes. When nothing happened, she nodded in satisfaction. "I guess I am just hearing thi-- AHH!!"
Without realizing it, she had drifted a little bit too far to the edge. When she turned, her foot had slipped right off. Zola managed to get her hands around a stray branch not too far down, though. Just gotta teleport myself up there, She thought and closed her eyes, willing herself to teleport.
Nothing happened. Her eyes popped open. Someone was silencing her magic. Someone was following her! "Help!" She called, hoping someone other than whoever was following her would hear her.
