Sylver shook her head to clear the slight buzzing sensation.<P>"So, what did you just do."<P>Dracos held his hand up, and a Soul Grenade formed.<P>"Any mystic energy is connected to the user. This is MY mystic energy. Specifically, my Ki. It comes from my soul. It is connected to me, as is any other mystic energy I use."<P>"What I have just done is given you the ability to interrupt that connection. To take control of it, whenever Mystic Energy is used against you."<P>Sylver nodded.<P>"So, how do I do it?"<P>In answer, Dracos hurled the Soul Grenade at her.<P>A thump resounded through the air, and Dracos fell to his knees, holding his gut. Sylver looked shocked at what had happened, but then her eyes took on a look of comprehension. She looked down at Dracos and saw he was writhing in agony.<P>"Let it go!" The words were forced from his mouth through the pain.<P>A second thump was heard, and Dracos sighed and relaxed. After several seconds, he got back up to his feet and turned to face her.<P>"Using the magic is instinctual. I don't need to tell you how to use it. You already do. Once someone tries to use mystic energy on you, you are theirs. Period. No discussion, no arguing the point. Once they attack you like that, there is no escape. Their powers are yours."<P>Sylver thought for a second.<P>"Why were you in pain."<P>"That's what the bond causes as a result of it. When you took control of the connection between me and my ki, it naturally caused me great pain. It will always cause unimaginable pain to those who fall victim to it. That is simply it's nature."<P>He looked her in the eyes.<P>"The other thing is that when you are in control of that connection, their energy flows through you before going back to them. Therefore you can interupt it, cuting them off from their life force , or choose to redirect it. You can use their own abilities, and thier own abilities against them, and at any moment you can cause their death by with nothing more than a thought."<P>Sylver looked surprised.<P>"Don't worry so much. How likely is it that you'll have to use it like that?"<P>Sylver smiled. "Good point."
