SS) Summoning a Sword
The evening’s first stars peak into the sky as the sun begins to set. Long shadows stretch across an open field that was gradually created and expanded upon through the testing of various spells. On the large rock in the center of the field sits Aiden. Scattered on the grass around him are physics books, his notebooks, advanced spell books, and a doll he lost when he was five.
He’s oblivious to the passage of time as he mulls over a new spell. Fengshui links quantum mechanics with relativity which should let me create a wormhole to my zweihander.

He starts to eat with a sigh and tries again. This time, when he reaches into the circle, he hears a shrill scream. He grabs his desired object and pulls it out. “A soapy shampoo bottle?”

“And it’s also the most economical when it comes to a mana to spell ratio.”
He places the empty plate with the other failed summoned objects as he stands up. “Once I’m in actual combat, my survival instincts will help me focus my desire and link me to my sword, probably…”
