#np: Hammerfall - Hearts On Fire
She knocked hard on the door, three times before anyone answered. A girl slightly taller than her opened the door with a slice of bread in her hand.
"Good morning. You know we have food at the caravan, right?"
The girl mumbled a non-committal reply.
"Anyway, are you ready?"
"Uhh, not yet.." the girl said as she disappeared back into the house.
Shortly after, the girl appeared fully dressed and carrying a small bag, and they walked down the street together.
"But what is magic?" the girl asked.
"It's not important what magic is, you need focus on what it can do for you. Do you think I got this tall by eating a lot as a kid? No, I shaped the magic and let it shape me," the large jotun explained, "once you get the hang of it, it's as easy as breathing. It's almost like it wants to help you."
"But I'm not like you, I haven't been doing magic since I was born. It's not in my blood!" the girl protested.
The jotun sighed, "Magic isn't something that's in your blood. Magic is in your mind and enters the world from there. Once your mind find a source of magic, it will flow through you, you'll see."
The girl tried the spell one last time. But this time it didn't stay a dull line of symbols in the wood. She gasped as the runes started glowing.
