I can feel my posture relax as I smile at the woman's show of magic. I never.know how people here might react to magic, so there's an odd kind of comfort in the soft glow illuminating the way as we step into the trees to follow Mairon. I feel comfortable enough to murmur the words to my own light spell, a similar orb of glowing light appearing over us as I glance back at her with a sheepish grin.

Aodhagan's presence is anything but threatening, and that might be the sole factor in my trailing along behind them as we make our way out to the road. It's probably been almost a year since the last time I left the safety of Mairon's little clearing, and even with his familiar silhouette a few yards ahead of Aodhagan, I find myself getting anxious the closer we get to the edge of the woods. 

Looking over my shoulder, I pick up my pace to walk closer to Aodhagan, my attention moving up to the curious orb bobbing overhead alongside my own. 

"It's pretty," I say before looking over at him as I await a response.

"Thank you," I reply bashfully, taking care to not shy away so that she can see my lips moving. "I have to be careful with it, though. It catches fire sometimes... Does yours do that?v

"Fi-" I try to repeat the sound, my eyes narrowing a bit as I struggle to piece together his words. I find myself wondering where he must be from, the movement of his lips sometimes leaving me at a loss.

"Fire! No, not fire." I shake my head, pointing up to my own orb as it weaves around my fingers before returning up. "Just light. Like firebugs, you know? That sparkle in the woods," I smile, nodding past him into the dark of the trees, the occasional flash of green/gold light bobbing erratically before going back out giving the dark life.

"Your sister," I ask after a moment of Aodhagan gazing out towards the bugs, "Does she do light like you? With magic?"

"Kind of?" I respond with a slight frown, my shoulders shrugging. "Her magic is a little different. She can make things with it. It's hard to explain."

"Like conjure?" I question, my curiosity piquing.

"I guess?" I shrug, unsure what conjuring is exactly. My lack of magical knowledge seems glaringly obvious beside someone who has likely actively studied it. "She makes rocks," I offer with a faint laugh. "Like... Magic stones. Stuff like that."

"Charms!?" I blurt the word a little loudly, shrinking slightly as Mairon shakes his head softly ahead of us. I must've been loud.

"Charms," I repeat quietly, looking to Aodh, "Things that hold magic."

I laugh at her outburst once the shock of it has passed. "Yeah, charms," I nod at the word. "We don't really use our magic all that much, though, to be honest."

"Why not?" I frown, his laughter a little confusing at first, "Magic is a gift."

"To us, yes," I frown as I work my way through the dense brush, relief finally coming over me as we emerge onto the road. "To the rest of the world, though... I don't know. It just isn't as well received. They don't trust it."

"People are just scared." I answer him, stepping forward to grab the light from the air before extinguishing it in my palm.

"How far is it?" I ask, glancing to Aodh.

"Half an hour, I think?" I shrug as I glance ahead at Mairon. The man seems to be in a world of his own, his steps taking him to the edge of the road as he gathers random plants along the way. I don't know how he knows what to gather, but there never seems to be the slightest hesitation in what he's doing.

"So how long have the two of you been together?" I ask as I look back over at Winifred.

Humming awkwardly, I shrug as I look ahead to Mairon.

"Few years, I think." I answer him, trying to remember exactly how long ago we'd crossed paths. "Maybe five? I don't know exactly."

"Are you married?" I ask curiously.

"It's not like that," I shake my head a bit sheepishly, "He's my best friend."

"Oh," I say lamely, my weight shifting awkwardly as I glance over at her. "So you're single..?"

"Single..?" I focus on the word and how it feels against my tongue, looking at him curiously before it dawns on me. "Oh, sure?"

"Cool," I nod faintly before catching the word as it slips past my lips. "I mean, me, too. Kind of... there's this girl that I like, but she sorta sees me as a baby brother so... yeah. I'm single, too."

"You should tell her," I smile, nodding faintly. "Sometimes people just don't know."

"I don't know," I sigh as I kick at the stones beneath my feet, the pale orange glow of my light still flickering overhead as it flits about, its movements almost sentient in the way they twitch up to tree branches and the odd squirrel curiously. "She's got so much on her plate, and she's sort of all I have... I don't want to mess things up."

"A time will come," I offer him, reaching out to touch his shoulder lightly as I smile.

"Thank you," I smile lightly as I glance over at her. The moment is short-lived, however, when Mairon suddenly appears in front of me and shoves a bundle of herbs into my arms roughly.

"Carry these," he says gruffly, his body starting to turn before he whips back around and jabs a finger into my shoulder. "And dont crush these ones! Not if you ever want your sister to straighten up."

I halt a bit as Mairon turns to hand the herbs off to Aodh, frowning slightly at his demeanor before we carry on down the road. 

"Which tea did you bring?" I ask Mairon, my pace picking up a bit so I can fall into line beside him before he can respond.

"I brought a bunch," Mairon replies, his tone softer despite the fact that Winifred can't hear him. "For the poison, and to flush out her system. She'll be stone cold sober when we're done with her."
