Dueling Wizards

Wrapping his hand in incandescent blue light, Marc throws the ball at his pursuer. Thomas managed to use his talent to catch the strike and throw it into the sky.

The detonation caught Thomas’s attention, and he took a step away from his quarry. Amplifying his voice, he said, “You’re talented, but you won’t escape me.”

“No,” Sybell droned, returning her attention to the consoles.

Cederic ground his teeth but managed to ask, “How deeply are they buried?”

“Fortunately, the ships are close to the surface” Sybell chirped. “We should be able to dig a path to them quickly...
