In chapter fifteen of Cursed with Power Celestria and Alaire become wrapped up in an argument with each other. Despite Alaire's failing health, Celestria cannot help but to yell at him. He mentions shadows and darkness, and this reminds her all too much of what she's heard before. After all didn't someone once tell her...
"My talk of shadows is no joke, Miss Hale. There are dark parts of this world you have not seen before; I can only hope you shall never be exposed to them.”Frustrated, Celestria only digs herself deeper into the argument. While she is annoyed and angry, Alaire expresses how he sees the situation they are in. He also brings up what he feels she has not accepted since the day she found out she was one of the last Dark magicians.
“I am straining my voice, but I do it because you underestimate what we are stuck in the middle of. When I first learned Dark magic I was a shadow in the light. Soon I discovered I could move that shadow, and then…”
He motioned for me to move closer, but I already thought we were close enough. I could hear him… Why did he need to make a scene out of what he was saying? I lowered my head toward his, but I remained cautious.
Alaire raised his head to my ear and whispered, “The light was consumed so quickly that even now I do not know where it has gone.”
Leaning back and returning to the position I had been forced into, I stared at him. Shadows, lights… I had heard this before. It was not my mind playing tricks with me; no, I knew who I had heard this from in the past.In this debate with the mentioning of lights, shadows, and war what will happen? How will this disagreement affect Celestria and Alaire? Will Alaire live?
Find out all of this and more when you next read Cursed with Power.
