A Passage Of Rites

My long, dangerous job done, I now just had to watch over the Creature as the Mage slowly drew the circle of runes around it. But even I had my limits of boredom.

“So where did you learn this ‘Rite of Hellfire’ anyway?”

He didn’t look around, just tossed an old book at me.

I opened it up, flicking through the pages.

“I didn’t know you read Ancientia.”

“I don’t, but I can translate Runes just fine.”

“Um, wait, doesn’t Ancientia go upwards? Because you seem to be writing those down the wrong way, facing out rather than-“

Everything burned.
