Kahla twisted in her chair, an eery breeze unsettling her as the room became significantly colder. She had not been sleeping for very long and it was relatively easy for her to will herself to consciousness. Mentally, she was aware, but she kept her body limp and relaxed and her breathing even. She had taught herself this technique when she was younger, having had used it against Eli multiple times.
Straining her ears, she only faintly heard a footstep. Perhaps a change in weight. Very minimal. No one in the college had reason to be stealthy around her. Focusing her senses, she could feel the heat of another body in the room with her, just one.
Swiftly, she tossed the chair in the direction of the heat signature, her hands igniting immediately into bold, bright red and orange flames. Her silver lined robe fanning out as she spun before lying dormant at her sides. "Who are you?" she hissed through clenched teeth. Her eyes had already assessed him, and he had harmful intention. Blade drawn and blood thirsty gaze locked on her. She silently noted the point to his ear but dismissed it temporarily, more pressing matters at hand.
