Marina Hiupio Inse Suimche used to be a researcher and teacher at White Lake Academy. She doesn't anymore, but she still visits the campus once a season to talk to her former colleagues and borrow books and read papers. And to get educational materials for her foster children, but not for this visit – her most recent, Teacai, passed her adulthood examination at 15 years old, and took on the name Temo. She's apprenticed to a builder now.
Her Flowers practice gives her forewarning of the Open ritual gone wrong in the floor beneath her, but it doesn't do anything to protect her. She feels the ritual's energy pulling her towards it, and pushing her through the other side.
She wraps her arms around herself and braces.
Where is she now?
