Jisa watches, very interested and impressed, and knocks down more trees for him when he needs them. 

When it's been a candlemark she looks for Maurabel with Mindspeech again. 

Permalink

:Hey, I'm tutoring, emergency?:

Permalink

:No, sorry: She drops the link and goes back to helping Wood.

Eventually she notices she's hungry, and peruses the meagre remaining stash of wages from their furniture-work in her tunic pocket. "Hey, Wood, figure I can get us something to eat at the market for this?" 

Permalink

"You could get a loaf of bread and maybe a little something to put on it."

Permalink

"Mmm, okay, I think I want to do that, I'm hungry and Maurabel is busy. Er, should I leave you here to keep working or will you maybe get in trouble if someone tries to catch you or whatever?" 

Permalink

"I should go with you."

Permalink

"All right - one moment, I'll just shield and ward the area in case anyone wants to mess with our things." She does this, and then heads off toward the city again. 

Permalink

She can get a loaf of bread - and a beer, or a boiled egg, or a ladleful of cooked onions dolloped directly onto her bread, or a handful of dates, or one slice of roast beef to turn the loaf into a sandwich.

Permalink

Wow she doesn't want a beer at all. Or meat, ew. She'll get a boiled egg. 

Permalink

It comes still in the shell and a little warm. Most people carry a knife around everywhere to do things like cut up their boiled eggs.

Permalink

Jisa can do that just fine with magic once they're out of sight again, and smear the egg around between two hacked-off thick slices of bread. She offers a bit of it to Wood. 

Permalink

He accepts it and nibbles delicately.

Permalink

She feels a bit more energetic after eating. Possibly doing a really hard Gate and skipping breakfast wasn't the ideal plan, and heavy magic use tends to reduce her appetite right afterward so she didn't even notice. 

She chops down more trees and prepares more logs for Wood, and eventually thinks to check on Maurabel with Mindspeech again and see if she's more interruptible now.

In a class on Water magic but not paying all that much attention to it.

Permalink

:Hey, it's Jisa, just wondering if you figured out what that girl wanted: 

Permalink

:It was stuff about dorm rules, we all had to agree on some when we moved in. I think she doesn't like that I'm cramming extra people in all the time and wanted to catch me keeping food in a way that attracts pests or something but it was all fine:

Permalink

:Mmm, she sounds like an annoying dorm-mate. Anyway Wood and I are working on the cabin and we'll sleep here tonight, I think, but can we come back for dinner?: 

Permalink

:Sure, I'll be in my room for dinner. Cabin going okay?:

Permalink

:Think so! It's not going to be all the way done yet by tonight, but I can cut down trees with my kind of magic, which means it goes faster: 

Permalink

:Cool. Will you be warm enough or do you need me to check out a Fire, make you an artifact?:

Permalink

:We'll be fine, I can do a weather barrier and it won't be very tiring so I'll still be able to Gate in the morning: 

Permalink

:Cool, I didn't know those were a thing:

Permalink

:They are! It's an obscure spell and not a lot of people know it, and it's hard to learn, but it's way less power-intensive than a heat-spell because it just moves heat around instead of making it. Anyway I should let you focus on class, see you tonight!: 

Permalink

:See you!:

Dinner is porridgey soup. And bread. Maurabel gives Jisa hers before she puts shredded chicken in the pot.

Permalink

"This soup is interesting!" Jisa says brightly. "Is it called something?"
