Happy Friday! Just so you guys know, I’m going to be taking a short hiatus from Principles of Magic in May to work on some other projects for a little while. I will continue updating until April 29. After the hiatus, I’ll resume the normal schedule on June 3. Thanks for understanding!

Charlie runs to the fence and looks out to the nearby field. There are four boys about her age, playing a game with a ball. They’re laughing. They’re having the best time. There is a small village in the distance. That’s probably where the boys live.
Charlie waves her hand out between the bars. As Pepper and Avery join her, she sticks her hand out even further. Pepper is smiling, and Avery looks a little cautious.
