Ein Quin and Walter Livingston sank to the floor, eyes fixed on the former talisman that occupied their last fifteen minutes together. It broke up into seven pieces. The crystals burst with colored light from the visible light spectrum, a belch of Ein’s life force.
“What the heck was that?” Ein asked.
“I should ask you the same question.” Walter said, breathing hard.
“It was YOUR magic crystal neckless.”
“Yeah, but if you were a normal person, it wouldn’t have done anything.”
“What are you talking about? I am normal! Who was that voice?” Ein asked, desperate to avert blame.
“Oh her? That was Ruby, perhaps the most powerful witch alive. We went on a date once.”
“Whaaaaat? You’re trying to hock a witch’s relic?”
“I told you it was used up. I’ll tell you the story it you tell me what is going on with you.”
“Maybe, you go first.”
