"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."

I frown at that, catching Marion's hand so I can continue silently.

"Is it smart to push so hard so fast?"

"It's necessary," Mairon says out loud as he squeezes her fingers. "The toxin feeds off the presence of the opiates in her body. As long as it's there, I can't fully remove the toxin. She'll just keep bleeding until she dies."

I nod softly, my lips still bent into an anxious frown as I release his hand and keep my pace alongside him. It's not often Mairon bothers to help those foolish enough to steal from him, and even less so that their blunders don't leave lasting marks. Aodhagan is nice, and the thought of bearing witness to the possible death of his sister leaves a ball of nerves to fester in my stomach.

*Mairon*

"It's just up here," the stranger says in his odd accent as his footsteps become more certain of themselves the closer we come to where he feels most familiar. I can feel my nostrils flare as he hurries ahead of us, my arm unconsciously coiling around Winifred's elbow as the young man passes us.

The tickle of magic at the back of my neck wanes, presumably as the boy allows his magical illumination to fade. I find myself wondering what the magic must looks like for him to consciously dismiss it now that we're in a more populated area. We're far enough away from the city center that there are no lights out here - at least none that I can sense - so surely he must still need his light.

"Is it still dark?" I ask quietly after squeezing Winifred's arm to get her attention, my body subconsciously leaning toward her as though she might hear my whispering better this way.

My eyes narrow a bit to catch what Mairon's asked, my arm pulling against his just so as I shrug.

"There's the moon." I respond, trying to keep my chest still enough so as not to yell into his ear. "But yes." I add, looking ahead to Aodh curiously. He's nearly left us behind in his haste to reach the dimly lit cottage just down the road.
