Justin looked away slightly as Maddy said he should have told her. She was maybe right, but she also probably didn't understand how the rest of the world saw people like him. "I've never actually told anyone about... that." He said in a soft voice, as if the topic were strange to speak about aloud. "Not to mention I had no idea how to tell you and I was... scared, of what you'd think of me if you found out what I was. I've seen people burnt at the stake in Nymh for less. Wei was the only one who ever knew, and that was because he was like me. He was the one who taught me about all this stuff, about what I was, what I could do, the worlds we visited.
Reaching up Justin pulled on his shirt so that it dropped down one shoulder; revealing a golden mark on his shoulder which, if looked at through the fingering he had taught Maddy, would glow with an unearthly light. "This is what marks me for what I am." He said finally. "It's called a Runemark. You have one too." He informed her casually, as if commenting on her hair colour. "That was why I asked if you'd ever heard of them before. Though I have to admit I didn't think to look until you mentioned all those strange things about being able to not be seen if you wanted to."
He cast her a glance, making sure he wasn't overloading her with too much information at once. "It's called Bjarkán, your rune. It means vision, relevation, dream; which is also why you're able to use that fingering I taught you so easily. That is the physical way to cast Bjarkán, other runes won't be so easy, you'll feel them slipping and trying to escape your grasp... at first..." He then trailed off himself with the realization that she would never learn any of this, he couldn't teach her in such a short amount of time and no way she'd want to stay with him when she had a family to go home to. "I'm sorry you're here. I had intended to leave before you realised and let that be the end of it. When you go home feel free to tell your people whatever you wish of me. I'm sure it is not something someone hasn't said about someone else at sometime or another. They're just words, they can't hurt me."
