It was once no small factor to go into the brain of one other sentient being, even that of a pal. Many a magehound had died shrieking after the 1st test, for sanity may be swept away through the onslaught, and a middle may possibly burst from the weight of 2 separate rhythms that refused to develop into one. yet Kiva was once powerful adequate, and so was once Mbatu. the instant of affliction handed fast, and he or she slipped into the common pathways of the wemic’s brain and center.
