Roger returned to studying, being careful to not fall asleep again. He even went as far as to stand up as he studied to prevent that from happening again. He didn't want to admit it in front of Maeva but now he was scared to fall asleep at night.
The afternoon came and he practiced the application of what he was learning with his teacher. Fortunately, something must have happened to make his teacher more personable and he was making huge gains in his skills in both creating new spells as well as the power behind each spell. Of course, he was worried that his black eyes would remain permanent after each of his lessons but he always checked his reflection and the black eyes always disappeared.
