100 Odd Words #17 - Crossing the Bank (WIP excerpt)


Laney was quiet for a long time.  “What do you mean by that?  Crossing over into magic?”

“We often liken it to the banks of a river.  On one bank lives the human race in its usual state.  On the other bank are those who have become magical.  Right now, you might be considered between the banks in the middle of the river.  When you have been made a magician, you will arrive at the far bank.”

“Is there a way back to the . . . regular bank?”

“The near bank, it’s usually called.  And no, there isn’t.  Not once you’ve crossed.”
