Aurelia gave a knowing snort, "Religion ruins everything doesn't it? Saul and I, and our children and many of our friends and family are considered sinful. We were born different, we can do different things. But the religion in our lands, the Abbey, fears us. Fears that we'll do something ridiculous like take over the word or something. According to them we should pray to the Maker constantly for forgiveness for our sin of being born this way. Something which is no fault or decision of our own. And for a long time, people like me wouldn't have been able to marry 'normal' people. Which is ridiculous because if mages just kept marrying people who can't do magic over generations, eventually the magic would be stamped out of them. Lucky for us they didn't catch on to..." Aurelia stopped suddenly and stared a Spencer, horrified, realizing what she had just said. It wasn't as if she were exactly hiding it, it just... she had been avoiding mentioning it the entire time she'd been talking to him and now... it was out. People here couldn't do magic, she could tell that immediately and she had no clue what their attitude towards it was.
"I brought CHOCOLATE pie!" Saul called loudly as he approached. Aurelia shut her eyes tight mentally cursing both her foolishness and her husband's poor timing.
