"Perhaps it is the forest, it is their home, is it not?" shrugged Manon, dropping the two sleepy Spriggans like unwanted sacks of potatoes. "That may be a question for Willow, or perhaps Mr. Flynn when he returns from his vacation, non?"

The clown looked about, seeming to have misplaced something, "Now, where is my ball?"

She rubbed her chin, and turned, and then turned back, pacing in a circle. The ball came into view as she walked, and she stood on the other side of it, looking around. "No ball, no mysterious protector."

At that, she walked around the ball again, not noticing its presence, and it disappeared as she walked in front of it, wiping it from their vision. The clown gave another shrug. "C'est la vie, non?"

Meanwhile, the Spriggan in Willow's hands began to wriggle and struggle, before rattling at the ones in the bushes. A couple of them came out, gathering up Drysi's boots, and taking her glasses when they were tossed down to them. One of the fae assembled itself into a character; its legs filling the boots and wearing the glasses with a patch of dried, yellowing moss on its head.

Plop, plop. Stomped the actor, rattling low, as if grumbling. It paced one way, and then another, showing a walk through the woods, before it came to a stop.

Suddenly it began to claw at it's face, a pitched percussion emulating a scream.

Fwash! A spriggan came bursting out of the bushes, and the two seemed to notice each other. The one bursting on the scene cautiously waved before putting its hands to its throat. The yellow-moss Spriggan had its hand out, and then slowly clenched it into a fist. Then, with a bold warcry like the group just faced, the fae in reserve came charging out, swinging clubs and spears, knocking the actor over, pulling off the boots and glasses. Frustrated, the actor sat up and threw its hands out, and the surrounding looters fell to the ground, as if pushed away.

Then, the actor stood, brushed itself off, grumbling again as it stomped away, bare-foot, deeper into the forest.

At that point, the leader looked at Willow to see if this skit had appeased her.

Johann, glad to have something other than Manon's stupid tricks to look at, was first amused and then confused. He searched the others with his eye to confirm he wasn't the only one. "She ddddidddiddd-" another deep, resetting breath. "Drysi hadnnnn-" the second deep breath was more of a frustrated growl as he gestured vehemently with both hands at the Drysi-spriggan. "Not that," he managed, and merely hoped they understood what he meant.

"What did you make of it, Johann? I'm not sure I understood it much beyond these little imps attacking her," Willow huffed as she lobbed the spriggan she was holding off into the brush with a light underhand throw. Burning a bit of iron, she found Drysi's glasses in the dark by following the thin blue line to the tiny screws set into the joints. She noted a number of other lines pop up, most of them directed at a number of bells adorning Manon, but to her dismay she realized she had forgotten to grab some coins before leaving. Mentally berating herself as she tucked the glasses into a pocket, Willow realized how tedious only being able to push or pull metals would be.

"Because it seemed like they were saying Drysi went Darth Vader, but I've never seen her use the Force before so that can't be right," the Brit reasoned she she began to take a few steps in the direction in which the yellow-moss spriggan stormed off.

As the brief skirmish wrapped up rather swiftly, Katerina sheepishly gathered herself and made her way once more to an upright position, brushing some of the forest loam off of her now sullied clothes, before an impromtu troupe of actors took a verdant stage in front of them, doing their best to wordlessly relay what had happened to them prior to the group's appearance.

"I do have to admit it seems odd. Drysi is rather the fragile girl and I've not seen her do much magic that doesn't involve paper in some way," Katerina observed. however, intrigued by the scenario presented by the spriggans, she looked to the 'leader' of the troupe as Willow moved to follow one of the 'actors'

"Well, shall you lead us to where this all took place?" the blonde asked of the forest creature, leaning forward to get a better look at the spriggan as she questioned, keeping an eye on which way Willow had already begun moving.

"Right. Nnnew magic. Ssssomething... Or someone." He gestured with both hands at the Spriggan-Drysi as if to make his point. He was reaching a breaking point with his stutter again, and his desire to speak was dwindling. The necromancer was more than happy to subside to silence as they walked.
