Then he saw the city gates thrown wide and a crowd poured out to greet the army. Safar spread his spirit arms and flew toward the crowd. No one saw him as he sailed over a forest of spears and lances and he took a boy's immense pleasure in doing what he liked amongst so many adults and yet remaining unobserved. Then he overshot his mark and nearly flew through the city gates.
Safar nodded. Another great sob threatened, but he fought and won control. "Well, then, she said, if you meant nothing wrong, don't let it bother you. Just be careful from now on. " She held out her arms and Safar ran into that warm harbor, escaping the emotional storm. But from that day on he associated magic with something shamefulan act performed by dirty little boys.

Safar had possessed the talent even when he was a toddler. If a glittering object caught his eye he could summon it at will. He'd pop it into his mouth and start chewing to soothe his tender gums.
