#7 - What Price Power?
copyright 2021 by Dave Van Domelen
"So...what's the ultimate price of magic?" I asked Ms. Cerulean. While
she was mostly a field operative, she did come back to The School to check up
on her recruits.
"Who says it MUST have a price? Oh, for Wizards the price is paid up
front, in study and sleepless nights. You're familiar with that price. But
for Magical Girls...and you...it's just another inherited trait. You're not
going to turn into a demon or die from overuse of your powers. I mean,
what's the ultimate price of having red hair?"
I considered. "An increased tendency to sunburn?"
The 100 word limit is just for the part between the === lines.
