Shelly watched Galen and Justin working out from the second floor viewing area. It bothered her that they never used practice swords. Galen had taught Justin well, he was matching Galen move for move, neither one holding back. It always amazed her the speed at which they moved, at times their blades only a glint. They were getting lost in the work out and she knew what was coming.

 The energy in the room started taking on a life of it’s own, causing flashes of lightning and an unseen wind. Galen spun low under Justin’s attack and she saw it, his eyes had turned black. He was lost in the moment. And it began, they no longer were using their speed, they were trans-locating. It still unnerved her to see them in one place one second and in an other the next. They weren’t even bothering to use the shadows like normal.

  Galen had explained to her once why they used the shadows to trans-locate.” in the old days if we suddenly appeared or disappeared we would be hunted down, that is if the viewers mind wasn’t shattered.So it was easier just to step in and out of shadows,people would simply over look it. Now days it’s different with tv, movies, video games, people are desensitized. If we suddenly popped out of nowhere people would want an autograph and want to know what movie we were shooting. So it’s still easier to use the shadows.”

 Watching and getting a bad feeling, Shelly knew Galen was getting too lost in the moment. There it was, she barely caught the move it happened so fast. Popping out of nowhere at the same time Justin was behind Galen and all in a heart beat.Justin swings,Galen goes low, spins and comes up inside Justin’s swing and every thing stops. Galen’s blade is at Justin’s neck. Even from her position Shelly can see the trickle of blood.
