“I still don’t know how anda did that” Robin admitted
“I’ve always been good with kids” I shrugged
“I think he likes you” Kent laughed from inside the helmet.
“Shut up” I said, my face red.
“Nobody berkata anything” Kalder said
”I was…talking to…myself” I muttered. I glared at Kent. He laughed.
“Liana, was the spell anda put on Grad and Tala permanent” Kalder asked
“To an extent. It will stay on until I remove it” I explained
“Okay. We really don’t want them turning back to normal right here atau else we’d be in big trouble” he sighed
“Good point” I nodded
“AW MAN! I didn’t get a souvenir from this mission!” Wally complained
“Actually, Wally anda did. When Amber shot magic at anda and took anda down, she left a small trace of her magic sign on you” I explained
“What?” he cocked his head.
“Imagine it as if she took chemicals and threw them at you. Even though the bulk of it is off, anda still have the residue on you. It will eventually fade, but for now anda reek of untamed magic” I explained again
“Hey, are anda saying I smell?” he demanded
“You don’t have much of an attention span, do you?” I sighed “And, yes. anda do smell. We all do. Everyone who was touched sejak magic today does. That includes my magic”
“Really? What does it smell like?” he asked
“All magic smells the same: it smells like power mixed with glitter. The stranger the magician, the higher the power/glitter ratio. For example, my magic is lebih of a three part power one and a half part glitter, while Amber’s was an equal two part ratio” I explained
“Ooooh. I get it now” he smiled
“Do anda really?” I asked
“No” he admitted quietly
“All magic leaves residue on the person who touches it. It all smells like power and glitter. The lebih powerful the person, the lebih power in the smell. Get it now?” I smiled. He didn’t respond.
“I think anda broke him” Robin laughed. I snapped in front of his face a couple times. I looked at Robin, who came over. He slapped Wally across the face. Still no reaction. I got up and walked over to Artemis.
“Hey, Artemis, can you- oh no” I said. Out the window, a bird was in mid flap. I looked down and saw a kid about to catch a flying disk. I turned back to Robin. He looked scared.
“Faith…what’s happened?” he asked. I didn’t reply.
“Not anda to!? I don’t want to be alone. Not now” he pleaded
“Robin. T-time is frozen” I whispered.
