All is well with us...for the time being. There's no telling what manner of games the pixies will dream up.
Have you met Urianger yet? The sooner you do, the sooner we can leave this place.
We will be much bolstered for Urianger's company.
Oh...er, no need to worry about me. I'm quite familiar with the manor.
During our wanderings, Thancred and I would often return here. It's where I imbue his ammunition.
My friend. Ere I speak of the task at hand, there is a question I would pose to thee.
What thinkest thou...of mine appearance?
What will you say?
Did you take up astrology? Did you lose weight? I didn't recognize you at first.
Indeed. Though the night be lost, behind the shroud of blinding light, doubt not but that the stars shine still.
I have chosen to avail myself of their guidance, that I might navigate the sea of uncertainty that stretcheth before us. For a blessing, my prior studies of astrology did provide me with adequate grounding in the art.
Did I...lose weight? If 'tis of flesh thou speakest, I cannot rightly say. However, in taking up astrology, I may have shed with some yalms of fabric. My present attire better suiteth the art.
Though the night be lost, behind the shroud of blinding light, doubt not but that the stars shine still. I have chosen to avail myself of their guidance, that I might navigate the sea of uncertainty that stretcheth before us.
Come now, 'tis scarce the first time thou hast beheld these fair features. Lest thou wonderest, I have taken up astrology. My present attire better suiteth the art.
Though the night be lost, behind the shroud of blinding light, doubt not but that the stars shine still. I have chosen to avail myself of their guidance, that I might navigate the sea of uncertainty that stretcheth before us.


But enough of myself. Let us now speak of our task.
As I did mention, if we are to enter Lyhe Ghiah, we must needs gain the pixies' cooperation.
This is a simple matter of presenting unto them a suitable gift.
I shall procure a selection of viands that shall please their palates. Thancred, pray assist me in this endeavor.
Meanwhile, Forename, I bid thee obtain that which will please their eyes. In these parts, there abideth a vilekin known for its beauteous wings: the hawker. I shall lend thee a receptacle within which thou mayest capture a weakened specimen.
There's no avoiding chores, is there? Far better under Urianger than the pixies, of course.
Thou shouldst find a hawker nearby. Pray use the receptacle I have lent thee to capture a weakened specimen.
Thou art returned. Wert thou able to capture a hawker?
Ah, a truly magnificent set of wings. I shall treat them at once to make fast their vibrant colors.
Thancred too should return anon, upon which I shall ready all the items for presentation. Pray take thine ease meanwhile.
You couldn't have returned at a better time. The pixies had just decided that it would be amusing to have Alisaie and I exchange outfits...
Ahaha, thank the gods you arrived when you did! Any later, and I don't think I would've been able to live it down!
When you have a moment, be sure to show your appreciation to the twins. They've endured a great deal on our behalf...
I dare not ask what happened in our absence...
As much as I should like to savor the reunion with Master Alphinaud and Mistress Alisaie, it must wait. I have taken the liberty of presenting our gifts unto the pixies; let us see how well they are received.
We weren't expecting you all back so soon. We had scarcely begun playing with the twins...
That said, your gifts are truly wonderful! Let me tell you, the milk and honey and biscuits won't last a day, and the wings are the loveliest we've ever seen!
You've done us a great kindness, and it's fae custom to return the gesture. If you desire anything of us, you need but name it!
