Phalakros barely heard the hissing, but he yelped when a human suddenly appeared in front of him. Abruptly, he vanished in a cloud of black smoke, reappearing a few feet away. He was sitting upright against a tree, still in pain, but even more scared. Though, it was unclear what frightened him more, the human woman in front of him, or the knowledge that he’d just teleported.
He stared blankly at the woman, barely registering that she’d spoken to him. How could she be in the forests with him? How she could so suddenly appear like that? Was she even human? Or was she just another hallucination?
