It was a good week after Alice's rescue from the Order. She laid back in bed and looked at her sketchpad. It had a symbol on it of Cherubium, Envigur Unviru. She was trying to enchant her blanket. Maybe make it warmer, maybe make it cooler, maybe make it do something....

But no matter what she did, nothing would work. It was like all the magical energy she had within her was gone...leaked out somewhere.

"You're doing it again!!" One of the young girls spotted Alice. She was holding a tray of food, probably Alice's lunch. The girl rolled her eyes and she spun on her heel. "Mr. Geist!" She called. "Alice's doing it again!! Even though you told her not to!!!"

Alice blew a strand of hair away from her face.

Tattle tale.

"Are you cold," Geist asked. "I can get you another blanket. Just focus on recovering," Geist said.

Of course Geist wasn't exactly in great shape himself. He'd fought with a bullet wound and gotten pummeled for his troubles in trying to rescue Alice. Still his injuries were of a mundane sort. It still wasn't clear exactly what was done to Alice.

Geist approached, bringing Alice's lunch to her.

"What's that you have there? Oh....haven't written anything yet I see," Geist said, because to him the page appeared to be blank.

"Huh?" Alice blinked and she looked at the page. Why didn't Geist know what the symbol was? She frowned and looked at him.

"Y-Yeah....I'm a little cold. And a little lonely," Alice took the tray from Geist. "You keep running around helping Holly and everyone. I feel like the inconvenient patient."

"Are you feeling well? I was hoping you might be able to help me with something."

"What do you need help with," Geist asked sitting down next to Alice.

Though staying in one place for too long was against Geist's nature, they both needed time to recover, and with the major threat gone, Geist seemed a lot calmer now having a little time to relax.

"I keep drawing spell circles." She gestured to the one she had drawn, thinking that maybe Geist was playing a joke on her maybe. "But when I try to cast a spell...I can't. I know you said I should rest...But I've been doing good. I eat my meals, sleep and I've gained five pounds this past week. Moreso than last week remember?"

Last week was horrendous. She hadn't thrown up so many times before...

"Can you....maybe help me out? I promise to be a good girl."

"I'd like to, but...." Geist hesitated.

"You're busy...?" Alice frowned.

Alice turned away from Geist. She rubbed her right arm a little. "Look....don't let me keep you here. You saved my life after I saved yours that snowy night years ago. So...I dunno...Whatever debt you had to me is repaid."

She was doing it again.

Pushing other people away so she wouldn't get hurt when they eventually left her.

Geist had been different, but maybe not as different as she had hoped.

"No, it's not that, it's...." Geist looked away with shame in his eyes.

"I....can't....I mean...I physically can't. I'm incapable of helping you with magic anymore," Geist confessed.

This caught Alice's attention.

Her hand shot forward to hold Geist's. With some struggle, she sat up in bed. She tried to think of the best way to comfort him, and only came up with one. Alice hugged him from behind, resting her cheek on his back with her arms clasped in front of him.

"I....I don't understand....You're the best mage in the world...What happened?" She asked him quietly.

"Deal breaker," Geist said with a heavy heart.

"One of their anti-magic bullets hit me. It lodged its self in my leg, slowly poisoning me. The only way to survive, was to give up everything. I knew if I didn't, then no one would be able to come for you. So I gave it up. All of it. I broke my contracts, renounced spellcraft, and threw away every last rune I had knowledge of. For the second time in my life, I became a ghost."

Geist heaved a sigh. "I don't have a drop of magic left in me now. I'm not magi now. I'm just a man."

The reaction from Alice was a bit unexpected. Her eyes had widened, but she knew Geist wouldn't give up his magic so easily. It was all he lived for. If Geist were to prioritize the things he loved, Alice knew she would come second after magic.

A strained giggle escaped her. "Good....good joke Nick...There's no way you gave up magic. We've just been around these people for so long that I just...I can't sense it. That's all. Maybe you just need practice." She reasoned.

"It's true. You're not around any magic users. Not even myself now. It's how I managed to sneak into the order's compound. They could no longer sense me. You should still be able to sense the basic flow of magic in the world though. Tell me, what alignment is this room," Geist said.

"SHUT UP!"

It came out louder than she had intended. Alice let go of Geist and she wrapped her arms around herself instead. "Shut up." She whispered.

"I'm....I can't be anybody special to you. I'm not special enough. I wasn't worth giving up years of hard work for. You're a liar! A lousy liar!"

Alice threw the blanket off of herself and she got up before Geist could grab her. She blinked back hot tears and ran out the door.

"Alice," Geist called out. He stood up to follow her out of the room, but she'd evaded him.

"Which way did she go," Geist asked, and someone pointed toward the exit, as thunder sounded outside.

"She looks mad."

Scout walked up to Geist as she looked down the hallway. "I can help you look for her if you want? It doesn't sound like friendly weather outside."

------

Outside, Alice was running through the cobblestone streets. She heard the thunder and ducked under the awning of a building. She looked up and she bit her lip. Alice hated being wet, but she hated the thought of going back to Geist and living through the guilt. She was the reason why he no longer had magic. She took that away from him.

Alice knocked her hand back on the wall and ran into the streets again.
