Here is the next rule from the Code of Conduct, as described in Spell Sweeper, my latest middle-grade novel, with commentary by the main character Cara Moone.
THE SPELL SWEEPER CODE OF CONDUCT
(Do as I say, not as I bespell)
If you cannot contain it, rope it off and summon the local wizard authority.
(Seriously, why don’t they just scrap this code and replace it with the phrase: “Just call a wizard!”)
In Cara’s own words from Spell Sweeper: You’re probably familiar with the bright yellow “caution” tape for securing the scene of an accident. When we do a purge in Bliss territory, it’s procedure to rope off the entire area to ensure no one stumbles upon any magical activity. Our tape reads: Chemical Spill Containment Site: Do Not Cross—because no Bliss would take Danger: Feral Magic at Work seriously.
