Morgana tried not to let her eagerness to hear the answers to her questions show too much on her face. Ever since Mordred's appearance in Camelot, she had spent more and more time considering what she had said to Merlin. There was no way for him to know at that time she had been thinking of herself. Now he did and she knew she'd drive herself mad if she hadnt told someone. As such though, there was nowhere in Camelot for her to learn anything about what was happening to her. No old teachers to impart their knowledge, or show the way of anything magic related. Uther had made sure of that.
These thoughts filtered through her head quicker than a flash and she refocused on Catalina's reply. Eight years old? Such a young age, but then, from what she had seen so far, the Druid's raised their young on magic. It was everywhere and in everything for them. Still, to begin practicing at such a young age was a surprise for Morgana.
"Very little I'm afraid," she replied with a shake of her head and a sad smile. "In most of my experiences the magic has been used to hurt.... to harm others," she added, thinking over some of the evil beings who had come to Camelot for whatever reasons. The young woman was grateful that Catalina seemed just genuinely curious. She wanted to simply be here. She didnt want to be treated for what Uther had done. The whisper was so soft from Catalina that Morgana almost missed it, however she didnt miss the product of it. The rose was gorgeous, flawless even. That such wonder could be created with a few syllables astounded Morgana.
She was tempted to reply to what the other woman said, but Morgana didnt have the strength to defend Uther. She didnt understand it either. "It's beautiful," she breathed, not quite sure whether she was simply talking about the flower or magic in general. She then smiled. "I've never really seen it performed before me like this. Thank you."
