"Don't worry, Esther. I'm sure a master will take you as their apprentice." Counsel member Fredrick told the young girl, ruffling her short locks. The young magician had been found a few months ago, and already she was far past what the counsel normally taught young magicians. Green eyes focused on the small stone in her hands, focusing her magic through the medium. "Besides, the master who takes you in will have to be great to keep up with your potential." The older man smiled as he sat down next to the smaller girl. Looking up at the older man, Esther shook her blonde hair. "If a master wanted me, then they would have come already." Going back to her rock, she focused on a simple light spell. A glow started to form slightly above the rock, growing as Esther pumped more and more magic into it. "Every other master I've seen has just been scared off." Cancelling the spell, Esther started throwing the rock into the air, grabbing it at its peak before starting again. Fredrick frowned at the young girl. "Hey, someone's going to take you in. If I could, I know I would but you'd move too fast for me to keep up." He smiled, nudging the girl's tanned shoulder. "Besides, you still owe me for trying to steal my lunch from me!" That got a small chuckle out of the girl. It was good she was no longer completely hostile toward the counsel, however each master turning her down only served to turn the young girl inwards towards herself. This worried Fredrick quite a bit. Even if magicians were reclusive by nature, a true hermit of a magician could be quite dangerous. Esther shrugged as she closed her eyes and leaned back. "Well, it looks like you're stuck with me for a while." She let the breeze play with her pixie cut locks, enjoying the sun on her skin. Fredrick looked over at the young one and sighed, getting up to leave her alone. She didn't seem to be in the mood for talking, so it would do the man no good to try and talk to her. Besides, he had his duties to get to. Magicians had been coming to him frequently asking for extra protection for their apprentices. Paranoia was filling the magician community over the different Warlock attacks. It seemed no wonder that magicians were avoiding taking on apprentices. Taking his seat back with the other counsels, Fredrick got ready for the day. Little did they know that they would get a very unexpected surprise.
