A Complete Success


I like writing, but I'm not sure if I'm really any good at it yet.

Glowing green magic flowed out of the green-haired girl and into the rocks, lighting up the etched runes.

Pain shot through her body, and she let out a high-pitched scream. It hurt more than losing the limbs in the first place. She grabbed the bed sheet with the hand she had left.

It felt almost like eternity, but it was over in a few moments, as the pain began to fade. She relaxed, laying there and letting her body rest after such an endeavor.

"Miloo?" the green-haired girl called, placing a gentle hand on her forehead.

The small girl opened her eyes. Her breathing was returning to normal.

"How's it feel now?"

Miloo looked at her new arm, carefully testing lifting it. A gentle green glow connected the rocks that resembled an arm and hand. There were green glowing runes on every rock. She bent the arm and flexed her hand, and it moved more or less like normal. It was a little big. "It, seems okay."

"Glad to hear it. Why don't we try going for a walk?"

She nodded, and carefully got up. A bit wobbly, but fine.

Magical surgery without anesthesia? On the upside, Miloo didn't need any recuperation time, she was ready to go minutes after the procedure. Still odd and I don't fully understand what was going on but it was interesting.

The idea is basically: Prosthetics but with magic rocks because magic and no technology stuff. They are unfortunately limited in the medical stuff they can do, hence why this is entirely experimental. Green-haired girl has been making this up as she went along because she wanted to try and let Miloo live at least a semi-normal life. And Miloo will probably need to crash later, but right now she's excited at the prospect of walking again.
