Magic Lessons?

-The Bramblewood, Afternoon, 1 DSTR-

Ceriden nodded his head as Ponce confirmed his suspicions regarding how that green-haired man cast magic. When he was done, Ceriden replied, "Well, I cannot explain what magic, if any, circus performers use, for I have never actually been to such an event, but I would not dismiss magic as an unpredictable, uncontrollable force. I have learned and studied magic for most of my life, and I can comfortably claim that I have learned to control it."

"That said," Ceriden continued, "I think that learning to control magic will be more difficult for you than it was for me. I was immersed in the Ancient Language of Magic and taught how to wield it at a young age, whereas you have been forced to suppress your gift, until eventually that magical energy found a way to escape. As a result of this, our minds have been trained to harness magic differently. Going back to something I said earlier, I am a categorically considered a wizard with regards to how I cast magic, whereas I believe you would be considered a sorcerer. The difference is that wizardry involves using incantations and gestures to channel magic while sorcery relies on emotions and sensations to do so."

Ceriden plodded along in silence for a few moments after that as he organized his thoughts. "The reason I bring this up is, well, I wouldn't mind helping you figure out how to use and control your magic better if you are interested. If we are stuck together, we may as well build each other up as best we can. So what do you say? Would you like some magic lessons?"
