Total Desolation Part 39

I woke up in the middle of the night around 3AM because I couldn’t sleep, I had already been getting too much sleep since being dead. I quietly snuck down to the library and pulled books from both the main library and the library on my death, I had decided on the way down that it wasn’t nearly as important to read about my life that I lived as things that I didn’t know.
I sat myself down in the middle of the great library and scattered books around me. I went from book to book, reading as much as I could. I learned about more witchcraft, figuring it would be helpful if I was to defeat Aagneya on his territory. I also went thru a bunch of books telling me what I would be doing in the next few days, I was sure that Dawn would tell me more so I just skimmed the pages for now.
I spent most of my time teaching myself spells from the witchcraft books. There were all kinds of wonderful spells, transformation, healing, invisibility, curses, they ranged from all different levels of complicity, from super easy to practically impossible for a new witch. Thankfully I had been into witchcraft since before I died so I had a decent amount of knowledge but I still had more to learn. I practiced easy spells like telekinesis and read the books without touching them, and I practiced invisibility though I didn’t know if it worked or not without someone there to confirm it.
I jumped when an old grandfather clock rang out its bell announcing it to be 7AM. I heard stirring coming from upstairs as Raven, Midnight, and Bomb awoke, and soon heard them coming down the stairs. I quickly grabbed the books on my death and returned them to the back room before they saw them and came back to the main room and magically picked up the book and started putting them away.
The library doors opened as the last few books were being slid into place. Bomb made a face and I thought she was onto me but then she shook her head, believing that it was just her mind. I then saw that Midnight, Raven, and now Bomb were all staring at me.
“What?”
“You’re....glowing...” Midnight managed to say.
“What!?” I looked down at myself and sure enough I was glowing, my blackened veins seemed to glow but the glow was red rather than black, it was weird.”
“What were you doing down here?” Raven asked.
I looked at him, “Nothing I haven’t done before, only difference is that I’m dead.”
“Well clearly you did something different.” Bomb said matter of factly.
“Thank you, captain obvious.”
“You’re welcome.”
I gave Bomb a look telling her I wanted to smack her upside the head.
“What exactly were you doing?” Midnight questioned.
“I was reading some useful materials and learning some new witchcraft spells which I had been practicing.”
“Anything that would make you glow?”
“Not that I know, I read over everything before doing the spells but who knows, there could’ve been some unwritten side effects.”
“So what kind of new things can you do now?”Bomb questioned.
“Awesomeness.”
“Care to share?” She tried again.
“Why don’t we go to we go back to the field and I’ll show you, I don’t want to ruin my library.”
“Mkay.”
We all headed towards the back of the property to a back door when I had a thought. “Hang on I wanna try something.” Midnight, Raven, and Bomb stared at me in confusion but didn’t say anything.
I concentrated and stepped forward, to my glee I had stepped forward thru the door without opening it, I did it again and came back see their reactions. MIdnight’s eyes were lit up and Bomb’s eyes were wide with shock, but Raven’s reaction was the best, his jaw had dropped and he stared at me in total shock. I laughed.
“You...you can walk through...walls?” Raven stuttered out.
“Apparently, yes.”
“What kind of a relationship have I gotten myself into?”
“A fucked up one.” Bomb answered for me.
“Come on.” I said as I opened the door for us to go out.
“Any requests?” I asked as Raven, Midnight, and Bomb stood to one side as I separated myself from them, not wanting them to get caught it my crosshairs. “I can pretty much do anything, I just don’t know how well at this point.”
They all just stared at me so I concentrated and did the invisibility spell, hoping it would work. When the three of them all began looking around miffed on where I had gone I snuck around behind them. “How’s it going?” I hissed behind them. They all spun around at the same time but again saw nothing.
I stifled my giggling and morphed into an owl again. I was still invisible as I flew up to the top on a tree on the edge of the forest. I perched myself and morphed back into myself and turned visible again. I was in a crouching position with my right hand gripping the trunk as I stared down at my friends.
“How’s it going down there?” I called own. All faces turned to the basic direction my voice had come from as they searched for me. Finally they saw me and I waved.
“What the fuck Venom!?” Midnight yelled.
“I’m bored.” Once again I found myself concentrating for another spell and then was no longer on that tree but a tree that was a few away from that one. I watched as my friends stared at the place I had been and looked around in confusion. I let myself laugh an evil laugh out as loud as possible until they found me. Of course I didn’t know why I was laughing evilly, it wasn’t something I did but here I had found myself doing so.
Once they had spotted me I jumped out of the tree, it was one of the biggest tees I had ever seen, it measured somewhere around 85 to 90 feet and I had been perched all the way at the top. I felt myself fall down the clearing with the wind rushing past my ears, I heard my friends screaming my name but I ignored them.
