She tilts her head, still smiling. Then, both her and her Aspect answer at the same time.

"No."

The rains is evaporating before it can even reach the Aspect. They both continue to talk.

"Only one side is going to survive this encounter. But you can still save this girl. Give me the journal, and the specimen. If you destroy my property, I will take this girl's life. Simple as that."

For Mihai:

"The loss of this journal would be unfortunate..." continues the duo. "But we have time to make up for that loss. All the time in the world."

Mihai speaks next, and uncertainty appears in Lloyd' eyes. Marie and the Aspect notice it.

"Do not falter. We made an arrangement."

Zeiss, I'm trying to keep her attention on me. Deception I guess?

Mihai cuts her off - "You don't know a thing about us. You and your kind, i've seen before. Didn't have that rack, but you're really all the same." - Lloyd should know who it is i'm talking about - "You cling to what power you have like it's a toy, and use it to stomp down on the little people like you're tearing wings off a fly. I didn't know Vydorn, but reading his words i knew what you were right there and then. But we're different. Whatever your arrangement, the Whisperers don't stoop down to serve vermin like you."

Mihai and Lloyd know each other. Konrad makes note of this. On the inside, however, he starts to grin. Nothing gives him more satisfaction than the tantalizing potential success for manipulation.

Raising his voice, he asks, "Fedler?" He gives her enough time to respond, if she can. "Do you love your daughter, Yen? Do you want her to live? Tell Lloyd. Tell him how much you want to see her alive tomorrow."

He speaks so gently to her now, like coaxing responses from a cat sitting in the rain begging to come in.

Diplomacy
Toward Fedler, and toward Lloyd.

Deception
Possibly - toward Lloyd.

To Steve, Marie and her Aspect respond, a little irritated. "Do not pretend to understand the importance of our task. The difficult matters not. Only time matters."

They both listen to Mihai, and she doesn't seem to recognize the name Vydorn. Now, only the Aspect answers, still irritated.

"We do not care for your petty concerns."

But once it is interrupted by Konrad, it falls dead silent. Fedler licks her dry lips, then says with a weak voice,

"Just... just giver her back."

She doesn't seem capable of saying anything else. The rain is now pouring, and thunder is crackling above you. Yen is crying, and sobbing, quietly. And then, for one second, Lloyd takes the dagger off the little girl's throat.

This is when Breeze points her finger, and just like before, uses magic. The dagger flies away from Lloyd's hand.

"Now!" yells the fairy.

Yens falls forwards towards the ground.

The battle for the book

Lloyd threw the kid and aided our heroes, who quickly destroyed the enemies - Konrad employing the remaining Fire spell coin to do so - save for the true threat, the oracle's Aspect. It fought on after its summoner's death, speaking - with clear intelligence and feeling - what sound like half-taunts, stating imperatives about the futility of the group and their deserving death. It roasted anyone who came near - Fredrick, Lloyd, one or two thieves and militia men. Braving the flames, Konrad and Mihai were burned severely, collapsing from the suffering and the heat. As rain falls, the fires burn and evaporate water. As the conflagrations of its assault die down, the "Aspect"(for how could it be continued to be called such after its summoner dies?) violently grabs Fedler, burning her face in attempt to kill her, when suddenly whip-like tendrils burst forth from Yen to attack, focusing on the Aspect. Steve is the one who gives the last attack in the battle, causing the Aspect to disappear in what is not death, but a clear retreat, parting with "We will meet again." The Breeze, the magical marvel, outdoes herself in bringing the heroes back from the brink of the grave. After Steve explains very knowledgeably what needs to be done, Saemon valorously pushes himself further past his limit to suppress her newly manifested Curse in half a minute, falling dangerously prone to the risk of joining her in sharing her condition. Velstar arrives in time, and applies the Curse-suppressing woven shackles to Yen after taking a full minute to convince the distraught Fedler to part with her for but a moment, and doing the same with a spare for the unconscious chief of the Waterglass militia.

Mihai wakes up from his slumber. He tries to get up quickly, like he's done a hundred times, but finds his body unusually sore. It takes a minute for his memory to come rushing back, culminating in his word exploding into fire right before he'd lost consciousness.

He struggles to his feet and scans his surroundings, dragging himself to check on each one's condition. After learning what happened, he can't bring himself to approach Yen and Fedler.

Fedler is kneeling on the ground, holding Yen close to her, and won't let anyone else approach them. The little girl is too tired to cry anymore. It doesn't seem she even realized that Velstar has put woven shackles on her wrists. Breeze slowly hovers at Fedler, and with her head hanging in shame, whispers an apology. The hunter doesn't react for a few seconds, then beckons the little fairy to approach her niece so she can hug her too.

All of your clothes are soaked by the rain, and the fire burning away the trees around you is finally starting to go out now that the Aspect has been defeated. Mihai's and Konrad's clothes have burned in many places, and if it wasn't for Breeze healing them immediately, they would be in a critical condition.

Velstar is looking over an unconscious Saemon with an austere expression on her face. Amelia, his sister, has put his head on her knees, and is holding back her tears.

The two thieves from Fredricks' group are standing near the fort, along with Molly (whose rope that tied her was at some point cut off) as well as the five members of the militia. They are in shock, and frightened by what just happened.

This is when the three bound thieves who were left with Velstar approach the scene. Calla looks at the burned corpses laying on the ground, then back at her unbound colleagues.

"Where's dad?" she asks in Harmonie.

Nobody is capable of answering her.

"Where's dad?" she asks again with anguish. She then looks back at the bodies. "Dad?"

She starts walking towards them, but Molly steps forward to stop her.

"I'm sorry Calla," says Molly. "He..."

"Dad!?"

"Calla, don't. Please."

She cries out for her father again, then bursts into tears. Molly hugs the young woman, letting her cry on her chest.

Steve is still holding the journal.

Konrad places a firm hand on Steve's shoulder. "It is a shame it had to come to this," he croaks, his parched throat recovering after taking in rain for a drink. "You did good, Steve. If you hadn't known what to do, we might have crawled away from this with more dead. You saved us."

Steve turns his head and looks Konrad in the eyes. Horror and shock live there now and maybe tears. It's hard to tell in the rain. After a long moment he nods a little. "Not all of us." His gaze returns to Yen and Saemon.

It takes a long moment for Steve to acknowledge you and then to answer. "Report? We don't need to report anything. As the local warden, Velstar has already taken them into custody. It's just a matter of arranging transport now."

Mihai looks at Steve. Then at Yen. He darts between the two for a moment before speaking again.

"That Wolf... the Oracle, whatever she was, she seemed to have found a way to insulate a mind from Raw Magic."

He then looks Steve dead in the eye.

"If we can open that thing, we just might find some way to help Yen."

He looks down at the journal, still pressed against himself in a death grip. After staring at it for a couple of heartbeats his arm relaxes. "It's locked. And it's emanating a lot of magic power. Not raw magic, but not a spell either. It's all of the elements in roughly equal measure somehow balancing each other out. It's powerful though. It feels like one of the wards made to protect the isolation-."

His words choke off and die as he looks back over at Yen.
