It was another day at work for the Transporter Room operators in the Otherworldly Court.
It was the usual work, briefly observing a world and then shifting to the next. The readings were, in the simplest terms, represented by the ripples of a pond – they were not visual-based; if they want to, they’d have to send a drone Catalyst which was inconvenient to use. The twist was, each operator does this with six separate holographic screens showing six different worlds. After they got used to the post-modern technology marvel, they became quite adept at reading through six worlds at once.
Quite often, they would receive an [Telepathy] on their monitor from a Court Wizard requesting a transfer to Manegia. The operator who received it would take the coordinates the machine read from where the Court Wizard sent the message and transfer them in. Similarly, they transfer Court Wizards into other worlds, either for missions or just for going back home.
Anything else than that were rare occurrences, like transferring in non-Court Wizards and or getting strange readings on the screen. Through their experience, something big will happen whenever these things occur.

“What the hell?” an operator cursed. He swirled his chair to the direction of the senior operator. “John? I’m getting a lot of reads of people being killed en masse in Spiri Raia.”
“Well that’s not good, is something happening down there?” John muttered.
“Wait, I got more readings… Huh!?” The operator exclaimed. “I’m also getting active reads of ice Orders at the same time!”
Now, this got all of his co-worker’s attention. As far as they were aware, there weren’t any Ice Court Wizards living in Spiri Raia and they hadn’t transferred anyone there.
“Hm,” John gave a stern look. “Check the signature of the Order, find out the Ice Court Wizard.”
“On it, sir.”
BEEP BEEP CLICK CLICK PING
“Found it,” the operator said. “I’ll send it to your screen.”
“Right,” John swirled his chair back to his desk and read what he had received. And his face paled in shock. “N-No way… It’s!”

Azhure: Once again, I thank you for reading this story. Now, one of Alicia’s story ends here. Now is the time to set the stage to another. Alicia’s story was but a way to introduce you to the Wizards of the Otherworldly Court, a trojan horse.
Voice: Wait, what!?
Azhure: And from here, the ‘style’ of the next stories will be of how I envisioned. But, the formula of the book Alicia will still persist, as fragments of a ‘Memory’.
Stay tuned for the next book in the coming months.
