"Shit shit shit," Kyrad said, rushing back into the house. Hannah was held firmly in his outstretched arms, much like someone might hold a bomb. The little girl was crying her eyes out.

It wasn't hard to see why. There was a nasty burn across her tiny forearm, the worst of which was starting to bubble. Kyrad set her on the table and grabbed a bucket of water. He hesitated, then cast a spell to chill the water. Gingerly, he placed the baby's arm into the water, giving a sigh of relief when nothing strange happened.

Hannah didn't stop crying. Kyrad hit the chimes on the windowsill, though he was unsure if they would be helpful this time.

"Over twenty years of study," he muttered to himself. "Battles against the most powerful beings in the world. And I can't understand the magic a two-year-old just pulled off." He kissed his daughter on the head, trying to comfort her. The crying persisted, but was slightly less emphatic.

"Kyrad?"

Ramona peered around the corner with Todd in her arms. Unlike his older sibling, Todd was quiet and cried when held by strangers. Ramona peeked at the burn on Hannah's arm and she rushed over. "Kyrad what happened? Did Hannah get into something again?"

Kyrad put a hand on Ramona to keep her from getting too close. "Something happened to my magic when she touched it," Kyrad explained. "It went completely out of control. I made her a small ice fox to play with and it froze her entire arm. When I made a small flame to melt it, she got badly burned." He brushed back Hannah's hair and kissed her again, quieting her entirely as tears continued to stream down her face. "I signaled Grace, but right now I think we should use as little magic as possible."

There was a slight panic in his voice that Ramona hadn't heard before. In all of their other encounters, he'd managed to remain calm and composed, even if his life was on the line. But this was different.

Tears threatened to spill from Ramona's eyes. There was something about hearing your child cry and being unable to do anything to soothe them. Ramona was pretty much made of magic. Not only could she not do anything to help Hannah, she couldn't even attempt to soothe her.

Todd whimpered a little at the sight of his older sister crying. Ramona kissed his forehead and stroked his back. "Your sister's just having a fit. D-Don't worry Todd." Ramona looked up into Kyrad's eyes, searching for any sign that Kyrad knew what to do.

Kyrad swore under his breath as he checked Hannah's arm in the water. Non-magical treatment was a lot slower than what he was used to. He submerged her arm again and took to pacing the kitchen, trying to think of a way to fix this. If it was anyone but his own child, he would run tests to see exactly how she responded to magic. As it was, he had to rely on his memory of the two instances to draw conclusions.

As he paced, Hannah's eyes began to droop.

"Hannah!" Ramona panicked and she gripped Kyrad's shoulder.

"Why isn't Grace here yet!!?? She should have been here by now!" Ramona looked out the window and she bit her lip. "I...I'll go find her myself if I have to. Or...Or is there anyone else? Or...I...I could...I...."

Todd looked up at his mother and he rested his head on her bosom, trying to comfort her in his own way. "It's me isn't it." Ramona whispered softly. "Because of what I am....it's hurting Hannah...."

"Don't do that," Kyrad snapped at Ramona. "Blaming yourself won't help anyone. We're both fairly unusual, and there's no way to tell if it was one of us or something else entirely. Right now we need to focus on getting her better..."

"What's all the commotion?" Grace asked, poking her head in an open window. Her smile quickly faded as she read the tone of the room. Quickly rushing inside, she rolled up her sleeves, ready to get to work. "Oh Hannah," she said, seeing the little girl's arm.

Kyrad grabbed her wrist before she could do anything, however. "Just a small amount," he said sternly. "The bare minimum amount of healing you can manage."

"What are you talking about?" Grace asked. "That's a nasty wound. I need to treat it properly."

Being scolded by Kyrad did nothing to alleviate Ramona's mood. She looked at Hannah, wanting to hold her, hug her and kiss her wounds away. Not being able to do anything frustrated her. Instead, she glared at Grace and Kyrad as she paced the kitchen, much like a stressed fox.

"Just do it," Kyrad ordered between clenched teeth. He was clearly in no mood to argue.

"F-fine," Grace said, rubbing her wrist as Kyrad released it. He held up her finger, summoning the smallest ball of magic she could, then touched it to the wound.

The reaction was instant. Tiny bands of unfamiliar magic rose from Hannah's skin to meet Grace's finger, greatly increasing the power of the spell. The magic flowed back into Hannah's burn, cleaning up about half of the injury.

Kyrad let out an audible sigh, having not even realized he was holding his breath.

"How is that even possible?" Grace asked.

"Just do it again," Kyrad said. He was still on edge, but not quite as tightly wound as he'd been a moment before.

A second casting of the spell removed the rest of the damage, leaving a faint, flame-shaped scar behind. Hannah's face was still wet, but she was no longer crying. She curled up in a little ball, sucking her thumb as she slept soundly.

"Is she....Is her magic reaching out to meet other magic...and strengthen it?" Ramona glanced over at Grace. "Or did you get better at your healing spells??

Ramona got up and walked over to Hannah. She bit her lip and she rested her forehead on Kyrad's shoulder. "I shouldn't touch her or do anything with her....Right? It's for her safety...."

He could hear Ramona sniff a little, trying not to cry.

"For now, we should let her sleep," Kyrad replied. "I don't know exactly what's going on, but I think as long as we don't cast spells she should be fine. Once she's awake we can start small, see what sets her off and what's safe."

Ramona turned and she left Kyrad to place Todd in his crib. She tucked him in and gave him a small kiss before returning to Kyrad.

"I'm sorry for...." Ramona swallowed and she wrapped her arms around Kyrad, hugging him tightly. "You...You sounded so scared. I haven't heard you sound like that ever."

"I was...overwhelmed," Kyrad explained, thought that didn't really excuse his behavior. "I'm going to figure this out," he added, trying to comfort Ramona a bit.

Ramona looked up at Kyrad. "How? Is it even possible?" She glanced back at Todd's room.

"....Could the same happen to Todd?"

"I don't know," Kyrad replied, answering both questions at once. In the past, he'd always quantified statements like that. I don't know...yet. This time was different.
