The High Priest goes first, smug with the opportunity. To get rid of two heretics with one blow! He adjusts his robes and extends his arms to the sky.
"Gods! Hear me, your faithful servant! These heretics are corrupting your divine works with their foul enchanting, and trying to lead your people astray! Strike this one down and show the world thy might!"
His words echo through the mostly empty pavilion. And nothing further happens.
"Hmph. Obviously they see this as a trifle, beyond their gaze. I knew that would be the case! You'll get nothing more!" as he angrily waves his hand at Maya.
Maya looks nervous, but Silver pats her shoulder. "Go on. You'll do fine. I have faith.. in them, and in you"
"Th..thank you" Maya steps up, and clutches the pendant she is wearing. She takes a deep breath.
And begins to sing.
She sings in a language noone there seems to understand. "Rrha ki ra tie yor ini en nha!" The air is punctuated by a clap of thunder, high in the sky. A sky devoid of clouds, until now.
Wee ki ra par yorge ar ciel!"
"Was yea ra chs mea yor en fwal!"
"Ma ki ga ks maya yor syec"
And then she sings too fast to make out clearly the phrases, but as she does, an array of magical glyphs surround Maya, Ami and the priest.
The high priest looks terrified, stricken. "How!? How can you know that language?? Only the high arch priests are allowed to even see those texts!"
Maya's head snaps down and her eyes open, making direct contact with his. Behind those eyes is something else, something otherworldly.
