Alicia sighed slightly wiping the sweat from her forehead and walked through the forest using an old deer trail. It was unbearably hot today and even wearing her lightest dress wasn't even helping. She checked her herbs and paused hearing some shouting ahead of her. She looked up to see three young mages beginning to approach.
They each wore red cloaks and looked to be in their late teens. Alicia watched them and swallowed slightly. She could feel their strong magic before they got close. She raised her right hand and a bright blue fireball hovered over her fingertips. It felt cold and flickered in anticipation.
