    "Nadia, your eyes suddenly rolled back and you started cutting yourself." Irena explains. "That woman possessed you." She tells her girlfriend while moving over to her. She stays away from the fire though, apparently it isn't as harmless to her as to Nadia.

    "And the fire is beacuse you're an lampadfe, their blood kind of combusts when coming in contact with air. Don't worry though, you're immune to fire now. It's okay."
    She says, attempting to calm her down.

    Nadia gives Irena a baffled look. "I kinda wish someone told me about this sooner." That's really weird. Now she looks down at the table and the message she wrote.

    "The well? The one just outside of here?" She turns toward the door out of the room. "Is his body there? Why wouldn't he have been buried?"

    A scroll bound in a pretty seal plops down in the absurdly tall grass. A scroll written on both front and back. Then? Comments about agitation. "They've already managed to purge the other unicorn. Just didn't have enough time to finish the process with... Twilight was it? The scroll contains two spells. One a warding. The other destructive. They impose Reality upon beings and forces not native to the material world. It's how they removed the Star's taint."

    The farmaid sits up again to peer at the alicorn. "Agitate her and risk making the influence worse with the eventuality of purging the taint. Or leave her be and allow it to fester. I can't allow the Star to gain foothold in the Nexus through her or anyone else. I need another option if you have it."
    Purge the other unicorn?
    Oh heavens, it had been working Rarity too. The others probably aren't safe either...

    Luna is now looking incredibly agitated herself, a somewhat violent unseen wind pulling her ethereal mane to and fro.
    "No no no...that won't do at all..."
    If the Star gets more than one Element, it might be completely irrevocable...

    The princess eyes the scroll between her pacings, with a distrustful eye.
    Last time she was offered a gift from something like this, war happened.

    "I thought you knew already!" She exclaims. "And I don't know, let's just put out the fire and bind your wound." She's obviously far more concerned about the lampades well-being then why the baby was buried in a well.

    She grabs the staff she have had tied behind her back all this time and will use it to heal the wound once the fire is put out, or atleast attempt to. She don't know if it actually can do that yet.

    Looks like it works perfectly. Nadia rubs her arm where the cut was. Just having it heal like that is odd to her. "Thanks." She gives Irena a warm smile, but her attention is soon turned tot he task at hand. "Alright, let's check that well."

    "I only noticed the situation once the influence of the Star began to manifest. The Nexus is a pretty big place, but I know the feel of things that don't belong in the material world. Preventing them from causing too big of a mess is sort of my job," Zee replies with a shrug. "I didn't see how Twilight was infected. She used a spell to force the taint on another unicorn later, though. But thankfully she's been cleansed already. The Eye of Derleth seems to be just as lethal to these Stars as it is to those of my kind."

    Reality and Stars don't seem to get along in that regard.

    "Ib'bahhali would know how Twilight was infected. He met her shortly after she was shunted into the Nexus,"
    Zee smiles proudly at the subject of her offspring. "He has a keen mind for magic, both its practice and theory. He and Twilight struck to friendship quite quickly. He's the one who invoked the Eye to save other unicorn and burn away a sizable amount of taint from Twilight. And I suspect he may be the reason why you're here now as well."

    Zee quirks her head off to the side slightly. "You can find him at the Philip Memorial Library. He's still there with the other unicorn. And quite weak from using the Eye. It's just as lethal to him as it is to the Star."

    Twilight caused the secondary infection...
    "I will assume that Twilight was in the vicinity of the Eye that purged Rarity. A new, magical friend..."

    Luna takes a moment to consider these additional points of information, trying to think about this tactically, like her sister would.
    Her choice was beginning to make more sense. Celestia was too close to her when she had the Nightmare, and made errors...likely too, she would be too close to Twilight.

    Zee nods in response to that question. "The spell is still active. Ibby's probably hoping that Twilight can be brought back to the library so the rest of the taint can be scoured from her. Though the more the taint integrates with her the more likely it is that removing it may cause... unwanted harm."

    And now?

    Now it is time for a very VERY eloquent reply from Zee. "...another Magic...?"

    Nope.

    No idea what Luna is talking about. The Elements of Harmony didn't exist when K'rax had visited that horse-infested world.

    Zee wrinkles her nose. "I'm afraid I don't understand."

    "It was bolted shut with bars." Irena protests. "It seems to be an awful lot of trouble just to hide the body of a baby. What if she lies and it's like... a monster there or something?"

    "If she wanted to kill us, she could have did it when she possessed me. Come on, we can figure out some way of opening it." Nadia goes to walk out the door and into the well room.

    Now, however, a full-scale attack was about to be launched. The plans were being gone over a final time, the last scouts were reporting back, and those of the force who required weapons and armor were gearing up for the assault, and, save for the vampires, who had to wait for the short time until the sun set, those who were ready were getting into position.
    A few hours before dusk, on the day of the attack, a single traveler makes his way into town. His name is Bellan Vraal. He is a towering creature of corded muscle and alien flesh. His features are foreign, with an insectoid mouth of many parts and eyes green as emeralds. Short, chitinous spikes extend from the top of his squat head. His dress is as alien as the rest of him, an elaborate robe mounted with a mantle made of bone. What could best be described as a double-cape falls from this mantle, one piece of black cloth falling evenly from each of his shoulders.

    This rare traveler, unaware of the town's plight despite his imminent role in it, searches for a place to stay. He remains quiet and subdued as he does so, perhaps handing gold to the poor on occasion.

    "If she wanted to release the monster, she wouldn't have killed us would she?" Irena counters but still follows Nadia out of the room. Outside they are once again in the cupola shaped room with the bolted down bars.

    It would be literary impossible to remove them with your bare hands, they are going to need something else to do it.

    Nadia stands before the well, looking down at it as she tries to think of a plan. "How are we going to do this...?" She doesn't recall seeing anything around here that'd help. On a whim she tries to detect how much water is in the well, if any at all.

    There is actually plenty of water down in the well as it appears to be connected to the lake below the hill-top near the temple from what Nadia can tell.

    She can't actually see the water level however as the well appears to be pitch-black.
    "I dunno, it's your idea. I still think you should relax a bit first. Do you have any idea how freaked out I got when you got possessed? I got really frightened." Irena tells the lampade with a concerned look.

    Hm, it's connected to the lake outside, she's sure of that. Maybe they can get at it from that side...

    She's suddenly distracted by Irena's words. She turns and tries to take the naiad's hands. "Sorry. I've been kinda, I don't know, focused I guess. We can slow down a little."

    Nadia hugs her back, reflecting for a moment how great it is to have someone that cares so much about you. "Don't worry, Irena. Nothing's gonna happen to me, alright? We're going to figure this out and then we can get back to our lives."

    Nadia smiles wider and keeps one of Irena's hands in hers. "Okay, let's get this done. There's got to be some way to open this thing up." Nadia turns again toward the well, a frown replacing her smile. "Maybe if I had some tools..." She glances toward her girlfriend. "Do you think that staff could do anything? Not sure what, but it's worth a shot."

    The witch glances at the staff, feeling encouraged again. "Well, it's a magic staff right? It was able to heal you so it should be able to blast things too." She says while aiming it at one of the bolts. "Better stay back in case this really works." She tells Nadia with a meaningful look and if the lampade stays back, the staff will suddenly will suddenly emit a red beam which cuts the bolt right off.

    "Ha! Knew it would work. Give me a minute and I will remove the rest of them."
    And after some more blasts the bars can now be removed from the well.

    "Alright, let's try to lift it if you think you're strong enough." Irena teases as she starts to lift the rather heavy bars. It's going to be some effort from Nadia if she want this thing moved though. Irena with her daemon strength is able to keep up but Nadia need to match her if she likes to remove the bars.

    Nadia doesn't have too much trouble. It's difficult, but she's definitely a strong woman. Even without magic strength. So it won't take them too long. After they're done, Nadia pauses to catch her breath. "Okay. You ready?"

    "Well, yeah, I know." Nadia wasn't thinking that exactly, but she knows! "I don't suppose there's a rope hidden in that staff too." She' starting to think they're gonna have to leave and come back. The lampades leans over the edge of the well and looks down. What exactly are they going to find down there...

    "I dunno, Dio never said what the staff could do really." Irena replies with a glance at the staff held in her hand. "Might as well try to create a rope, I mean, it could heal you and blast those bolts, so why not?" The witch waves her staff around as a long vine, much like the ones that saved Nadia earlier comes out from the tip of the staff. This variant however have fewer thorns and is much slimmer but looks just as strong. It lands on the floor and then coils around like a snake, just waiting to be used.

    "I'm not even surprised anymore." Irena comments as she looks at the new rope. "So who's going to climb down there? It's not large enough for the both of us."
