Unicorn Horn

http://www.deviantart.com/art/Dark-unicorn-207817949     Unicorns are despicable, selfish, loathsome creatures.
     Of all the beasts, people and places in the world they are the only ones that have magic, and they will not share. Masters of manipulation all of them,
a Mage must never fall for the deceitful disguise of a unicorn.
     We call ourselves Mages, because we know the spells and the rituals that would bring us magic, if  we had a wand or staff to call it to us.
     Imagine how horrible it is to attend a school and wave around a wooden stick, pretending.
     My days of pretending are over.
     The graduation rite for the class isn't simple, few who spend half their life studying magic ever actually get to wield it.
     Tonight we'll go into the Magic Lands, many will never turn and of those that do return, only a few will get the means to wield their craft.
     Those that find the unicorn and rob it of its horn and perhaps its life, will be able to use the horn as their source of power.
     That is the only way a Mage will ever wield magic.
     By obtaining a unicorns horn.
     And tonight, I shall get mine.

    1. This is one of those pieces that has stemmed from an idea I had for a novel, so maybe one day there will be. ^_^
