Dressing in her mage robes (dark brown trousers and tunic, with an intricate wave design covering the bottom; to show respect to the sea god), she left her room. The walls echoed her each step, no other sounds creeping out from the building. She was alone, everyone had left for the winter. Shivering, her walk turned into a jog, excitement pulling at her pulse as a smile chapping her lips.
