Tessa leaned against the column, nonchalantly flipping through a thick sized spellbook. Withdrawn by all the spells that was written in strange cursive ink writing since she had learnt most of them already. Her eyes merely scanned through each words to make itself useful however she sighed in exasperation. She brushed a striking blue-green stray hair around her ear. Preoccupied with the things she had just spoken with her targets; Love, how pathetic. She didn’t understand why would they even think she was capable to love, or to be loved.
