“Is it my shadow?” Professor Natille finally said
“Correct” said Sitora then it bowed on the pedestal. “Your wit is as sharp as ever”
“Thank you Sitora” said Professor Natille
Next to the Sitora the sphinx was a stone statue of a unicorn in a sitting position.
Behind the desk in between the wall and the desk was a frame of a door covered in runes. On the door was a gold unicorn knocker and the slab was not stone it was diamond the door itself was made of platinum. This door looked like the administer port door. Professor Natille walked over to it and placed her hand on the diamond slab runes more complex than the ones on normal port doors glowed around her hand.
“The Administrative hall” Professor Natille said in a clear voice.
The door’s cracks flashed gold then dimmed to nothing. Professor Natille opened the door to reveal grass the looked like you were looking at the stars. Easrim could only remember the name void grass from a legend in alchemy, there was also trees made of crystal and a sea of liquid gold .
“Whatever you see don’t pick anything you have the ingredients in your chamber” Professor Natille warned Easrim before he went through the door.
“Why?” Easrim asked
“There is rules in this world that say mortal beings not from this dimension are not allowed to pick or kill anything” Professor Natille said in a grim tone.
They started walking on the void grass. It was like floating in the air.
They walked for about a minute before the trees thinned enough so that Easrim could see the ceiling, yet there wasn’t a ceiling it was the sky it looked like it was night time. Although the stars where in the wrong places. Professor Natille must have seen the look of confusion on Easrims face, because she said.
“This is another world where man are not allowed to dwell you can see the constellations of ancient runes in the stars above”
They walked on in silence for a while. Easrim saw rare plants and some plants that he could not recognize. Easrim not only saw plants, but mythical creatures as well. A group of Fairies fluttered passed, a gold golem was resting on the void grass and Easrim could have sworn he saw a tail of a baskilik flick into a hedge of Lithric which if memory serves correctly can be used to find mythical creatures. After another ten minutes they got to where they heading Easrim assumed because they had stopped in front of two large archways covered in runes that connected forming a X. Under the arches was platform of gold under the center of the X was a platinum pedestal and on the top was a slab of diamond. On the dimond was the most complex runes Easrim had ever seen. There was enough room to place a hand. Professor Natille cleared her throat Easrim stopped looking at the structure in wonder and looked at her.
“Stand right here and place your right hand on the slab” Professor Natille instructed
Easrim did as he was instructed and when he touched the slab he started to glow gold.
“Now repeat after me, I am” Professor Natille began
“I am” Easrim repeated
“I teach Potions”
“I teach Potions”
“At Buffleetoe’s school of Magical Exploration” Professor Natille finished
“At Buffleetoe’s school of Magical Exploration”
Professor Natille signaled to stop repeating what she said and to be quite. Easrim started to glow black, then light, then the glow faded. The ceremony was done. Professor Natille signaled Easrim to take his hand off the slab and to follow her back to the study.
