I watch as Mairon heads back into the cottage, looking to the stranger apologetically.

"He's gruff," I say, "But he's a good man." I add, reaching out to take the bag so I can dispose of the poisoned herbs. By the time I've cleaned out the bag, and snuck in a few harvested vegetables, Mairon is heading back out. Returning the bag to the boy, I offer him a kind smile.

"What's your name?" I ask, digging into my pockets for a piece of charcoal so he can write it on the scraps of parchment wrapped around it.

I smile slightly as I put the bag over my shoulder before taking the offered paper. I already know how she's going to respond when I hand it back to her, Aodhagan, spelled out in a neat script. Sure enough, her face crinkles in confusion at the foreign name.

"Here," I say as I pat her wrist before taking the paper back and writing out an easier phonetic spelling. "Eegan," I say carefully as I hand the paper over again.

"Eeee-kan," I attempt slowly, the snap of my tongue feeling wrong as I frown at the paper. "Kan. Ga- Gan. Eegan."

I smile at the look of approval from him, looking back as Mairon comes up behind us. "He's Aodhagan."

"That's nice," Mairon responds, not entirely interested. At least until he seems to sense Winifred's pleasure at having wrapped her tongue around the name, at which point Mairon offers her a smile and then nods toward me.

"Nice to meet you, Aodhagen," he says before nodding back toward the path leading to the road. Or at least I think it's the path. Even with an improved night vision, the overgrown trail still seems to be little more than a wall of darkness beyond the light of their garden. "Shall we?" Mairon asks, already starting toward the path without a thought as to the lack of light.

"Uhm," I frown as I glance back at Winifred. Do they have torches? Should I use my light spell?

I hesitate at the edge of the property, glancing back at the cottage a bit anxiously before digging back into my pockets for the small bundles of herbs I keep prepared for when we wander into the woods. Pulling out the leather satchel? I crush the herbs inside with a quick squeeze of my fist before opening the bag and dipping my hand in to grab out the shapeless bundle of light. It's an odd bit of magic, the glowing orb floating up above me and illuminating the path as I offer Aodhagan an awkward smile.

I'm not nearly as magical as I look, the satchels made for me by Mairon. Small bits of spells, enchanted already since my voice lacks the finesse for more intricate incantations. But I don't bother telling him. Silent magic is rare in this world, and I have to admit I like the bit of mystery Mairon and I's shared magic affords me.
