Most of the quaint white cottages were in ruins. The marketplace’s banners were ripped, some still crackling with fire. The stalls were overturned, broken, the grass stained with paints, potions and blood. The café’s chairs and tables were in pieces, and the building itself was barely still standing. Smoke and decay tainted the air.
Laerya could not remember ever feeling so dejected as she looked around at what had once been a village bustling with life and colour. Her heart dropped a little more with every injured person she saw. Broken arms, broken legs, torn ears, blind eyes. Shards of ice and gouged out soil littered the ground, leftovers of magic used to protect the village.

The sun did nothing to warm the chill in his body, and the sounds of the distant marketplace, normally calming in their familiarity, were now grating at his nerves. Shots of anxiety accompanied every step he took.
