If magic was as dangerous as it as it she just saw… or as destructive as the things she’d once seen in Hollywood blockbusters, then practicing indoors was definitely not safe. Narkissa nodded at Leannah; if she was able to quip in such a manner, she was alright. It was certainly getting late though, not that it seemed to matter to her or anybody else in the room. With so many unknowns in this world to still uncover, sticking to a native who was friendly, had a house, and even was willing to teach and guide them in practicing something as esoteric as magic was nearly as much as a miracle as the goddess giving them new lives and bodies.
That said, Narkissa stood up, excusing herself to follow after the quiet foxgirl, but not before reassuring Leannah that she’d be sticking around nearby to make good on her earlier promise. Seeing the two girls bonked on the head with a greasy soup ladle, she decided to avoid making the same mistake and left to practice in an environ that was less prone to catching aflame. She decided if she had any questions after messing around with it herself, she’d just pop back inside to pick Lazhira’s brain. As an added benefit, she’d get some private time with the mysterious fox girl to get a better read on who she was, too.
“I hope you don’t mind if I practice nearby with you?”
Following Misaki out to a suitable spot, she gave a nod to the girl before plopping herself on the ground in a cross-legged position, recounting both the points that she’d learned from both Lazhira and her ragged book on magic. Briefly meditating, she pondered similar theories to those that the foxgirl had in her mind. What else could be manipulated? They’d been explained on how the basic principle of magic worked, but what was it still, exactly? Was it still beholden to the laws of physics, or did it depart from it entirely and violate entropy? For that matter, what other fundamental elements could be manipulated, and to what end? If a combination of wind, fire, and earth could be manipulated with magic, for example, there were wondrous opportunities for creating new tools and industry in this otherwise seemingly barren civilization.
Narkissa gave the earth in front of her a healthy pat. It wouldn’t hurt to start trying there. Hopefully she wasn’t so unstable as to cause an earthquake, or something ridiculous as that.
