Ramona was sleeping a lot during the day. This was something Raven noticed as she joined the others in looking around the woods for whatever it was that Ramona had sensed. The unfortunate part was that it did sleep during the day as Ramona had guessed it would. Raven wondered why something would be targeting Ramona to begin with, but she guessed it had something to do with her being mostly made up from being a Freija. Whatever it was, it had taken advantage of her being sick.

Ramona wasn't looking any better either. Grace's magic was great at relieving the symptoms, but Ramona was barely keeping anything down. She was looking significantly dehydrated and barely opened her eyes when she did wake up. It was Raven's turn to look after Ramona and it was at that time she was noticing a slight smell. She frowned and ignoring Ramona's protests, she looked under her clothes and found something very, very wrong.

Starting from Ramona's legs, her skin looked translucent and it smelled very off, like something rotten had gotten to it. Slowly, but surely, whatever it was...it was creeping up her body. Raven wondered why no one else sensed it, but guessed maybe it was either a case of too many distractions or it was ridiculously subtle. Raven got up and walked to the door. "Kyrad! Grace! Look at this!"

Grace scrambled up the stairs, wondering what could have happened. She arrived to see a worried Raven waiting at the door.

Kyrad had bypassed them both and teleported into the room. He was already busy inspecting Ramona's legs, tapping them gently and looking for a reaction.

"This is new to me," he said, scratching his chin. "I wonder if it's some kind of parasite..."

"I've never seen anything like that before." Raven muttered. "But I don't like what it's doing. It's like it's sucking up all of the energy out of Ramona."

Ramona didn't react at all to the tapping. She half-opened her eyes and looked over to see Kyrad. A look of recognition washed over her, but as she tried to open her mouth no sound came out. She was too tired to even speak.

"Does it look like she's trying to...." Raven went to the doorway. "Fredo! We need you up here!"

"I can do it from here," said a groggy voice in their heads. Fredo had been up the whole night keeping watch, and had just settled into bed.

"Splash some water on your face," Kyrad ordered.

There was a pause, then the mental link came back, stronger this time. "Alright, whenever you're ready," Fredo's voice said.

"Ramona, Fredo is listening in on your thoughts." Raven said to Ramona. "Tell him what you know."

Ramona smiled softly and just barely nodded. I've heard about this back when I lived in the manor. I don't know what it is in the ground from when I was pulled out that night...But I've smelled it. Whatever is in the ground is using this parasite to take my own magic and stamina to revive it.

Kyrad could see Ramona whimper out a small giggle.

As a Freija and already sick with the flu...I guess I was too good to pass up...

"Green magic attacking blue," Kyrad mused to himself. "Makes sense. The question is how to counter it. Besides a literal scorched earth offensive, that is."

Whatever was attacking Ramona, it was feeding on her magic. The best way to attack it was to strike fast and hard with something it was weak to but Ramona could resist: namely fire. But if they didn't get it all, it would just feed harder and worsen the process.

The gears in his head began to turn, and he finally settled on a plan. "Grace, get some rest. We have until night to get this sorted, and I want it done right the first time. I need to collect someone who can help us."

Any idea who it is that Kyrad is collecting? Ramona asked Fredo, sounding very much tired. What are our chances of defeating this thing? The way Kyrad looks right now....his plan is dangerous.

Raven sighed and rubbed the back of her head. "Nothing gets by you, eh Kyrad?" She asked him. "How...um, risky is this plan of yours?"

"No idea," Fredo replied, a little more groggily this time. "But it looks like he's taking every precaution. I'm sure he'll do whatever it takes to minimize the risk."

Grace grabbed Ramona's hand, giving it a reassuring squeeze before heading over to her own bed.

-----

"Less risky than trying to survive another night without treatment," Kyrad replied to Raven. "The principles are all sound, it's just a matter of executing them correctly. Precision and timing will be key, so I'll need all hands on deck this afternoon when we make our move."

He headed to the door of the inn and looked at the weather outside. It was slightly overcast, but the rain had stopped.

"I'll be back shortly," he said, disappearing in a cloud of smoke.

-----

"Anybody home?" Kyrad called into the barn. This early in the morning, it was unlikely most people would be up and about. But on a farm, the day had begun hours ago. And the Drake farm was no exception.

Fiona was in the barn collecting eggs as was her typical morning routine, while indoors breakfast was being cooked, and of course Graham Drake was in the field tending the cattle and goats.

"Oh, Hi Mr. Kyrad. What brings you here this morning? Want some breakfast," Fiona said.

"No thanks," Kyrad replied. "I was hoping to discuss some business with your brother."

Kyrad was aware that Fiona had two men she considered her brother, but Kyrad only acknowledged one as such. As only one was present, he didn't think this would cause any confusion.

"Though you and I may have to talk business later," he added. "I've got a friend who uses magic similar to yours. I was hoping you could give him some pointers."

"Right. Graham is out in the field," Fiona said, putting down the basket of eggs she was carrying and ran outside.

"Big brother, you have a visitor. Mr. Kyrad is here," She called out.

Drake looked up from the bushel of hay he was bailing out to several goats. He patted the nearest one on the head, and turned to Fiona.

"Alright, I'll be right there. Could you take over here? The goats get quite insistent if their breakfast isn't on time," Said Drake as Fiona approached him.

She took up the pitchfork and took over his duties, sidestepping a headbutt from one impatient goat as Drake made his way over to Kyrad.

"So what brings you here? By the look on your face I take it this isn't a social call," Drake said.

"Need a favor," Kyrad began. "Ramona's in a bad way. Something nasty got inside her and it's sapping her strength. I've got a plan to get it out, but if we mess up it'll likely make her worse. I'm putting a lot of things together, and I was hoping you could stop by this afternoon to lend a hand."

Drake removed his gloves, and walked with Kyrad. "Then I take it this is a problem of a magical nature. I suppose even now these things occur," he said as he walked toward the house. "I'll gather a few things and depart immediately," he said.

When Drake re-emerged from his home he looked more like the Drake Kyrad recognized. His cloak hung from his shoulders and he was dressed in black garb. A belt hung from his hip with pouches of various holy items, and things necessary for exorcisms.

"Let's be off," he said.

"There's one other matter I need to discuss with you," Kyrad said as they walked down the path towards the edge of Drake's farm. "There was an incident here last night. Two men appeared, both of them dangerous. One of them summoned zombies that were not only immune to fire, but empowered by it. He said he sold his soul for the power to kill you."

"I see. It seems I must have made the mistake of sparing one of my old enemies. But fire isn't my only ability you know," Drake answered as he walked along the path.

"Did you happen to garner any additional information? What about his partner?"
