“How does it feel?” Raenalla asked, crouching like a cat on the open window’s sill, the neon lights of Kathanari making her edges glow.
Soli blinked, her fingers running over her skull. She couldn’t feel any scars or missing hair, but she knew the LumiLink had been inserted into her brain. “Normal. Hot, maybe?”
Raenalla giggled and made Soli’s metal table lift a few inches from the floor. “Firemancer! I thought you’d go water, like Fel.”
Anger sparked inside Soli’s chest at the mention of Fel’s name, and she scowled, violet eyes narrowed. “No. Not water. Give me your lighter.”
Lumi is an ongoing series of flash fiction episodes I’ll be sharing each week.
