Esmerelda scowled and stood, looking as Galadriel handed Sygnet the bottle. "That's it?"

Micha shrugged. "Evil sorceress, the clearest water, suspicious bottle... what's the catch?"

"The pool is where she gathers her strength. It is of magic. It is both her power and her weakness. If you were to prevent her from reaching the water, she will weaken and then may be convinced to enter the bottle. However, she may see this coming and try to stop you. I cannot tell you what she will do but make haste," she explained. The Lady knew the instructions were incredibly vague but truth be told, she had no idea how to stop the sorceress. This was their best chance at catching her. She couldn't bear to be without the water for more than a few minutes.

"Ah," Micha said with a nod. "Well.. I guess we have some traveling to do. How far north of here is the pool?" He looked from Galadriel to Sygnet.

Esmerelda scowled as she listened. She dare not speak against the plan since she obviously had no better plan... all the same she was not fond of their task. It seemed a poorly concieved tactic. Either way, though, she would do anything she must to try and protect Brinley from this threat. She looked over to Brinley, "I don't suppose anyone from your company of soldiers would be able to help?"

Galadriel's eyes passed over to Esmerelda at her thoughts. She knew the plan was foolhardy but this sorceress was almost as old as Sygnet herself with hundreds of years of experience. The pool was her life, the source of her immortality and without it, she would dwindle into nothing.

"It is about an hour hard ride north to the pool," she replied to Micha, "As for help, Haldir heard of what happened to Brinley and he wanted to offer his aid. He will be waiting for you in the northern side of Caras Galadhon. That is all I can muster for now. Our borders grow restless," she told the group. It was a difficult time for the family and no doubt, she knew Esmerelda would be fighting this outright and the frustration at Galadriel's lack of assistance or useful information could possibly send her over the edge.

"we best get going then," Micha suggested. He stood to his feet and looked to Sygnet as if to verify there was no business left for them there.

Esmerelda took a deep breath. A touch of fear mingled with her other emotions. She once again wished she could wield a sword as well as she could forge one. She nodded a silent agreement with Micha and walked towards the door.

Sygnet nodded and got to her feet. Brinley followed shortly as Galadriel opened the door for them to leave. She wished them luck as they disappeared out the door.

Halfir met them at the main gates to Caras Galadhon. He greeted Sygnet warmly and shook hands with Micha and Brinley, as well as a small head nod to Esmerelda, as they had not yet met formally. The young woman often repaired his weapons after the small skirmishes at the border.

Once at the boarder Micha greeted Haldir with a firm shake then pulled out a map and studied it for a moment. "Where exactly is this pool, then?" he wondered aloud.

Esmerelda, seeming a bit on edge, nodded back but her eyes looked every which way. Her hand rested on her sword, though she doubted it would do her any good when the time came.

"And how exactly do we plan on capturing this... thing... at the water?" Esmerelda finally spoke. "If the water is her life force... maybe we should just destroy it. Drain it," Esmerelda shrugged. "Or fill it in."

Haldir pointed out the small pool on Micha's map. It wasn't too far away. "The pool is quite small. Close in size to a large puddle, in fact. It could easily be drained. Perhaps a small bucket and just tossing the water into the grass," the elves scout suggested. They didn't have much in the way of soaking up a puddle but it was a shallow pool, only about an inch at the deepest point and near three feet long and wide.

Micha nodded. "It can't hurt to try." He looked to Esmerelda who seemed to agree, then glanced to Brinley and Sygnet for their opinions. "What do you think?"

Esmerelda glanced at the map as Haldir pointed out the pool. As she stood beside Brinley she glanced out around them into the woods. She began to wonder... what if something went wrong? She glanced up at Brinley's eyes for but a second, then tipped her head in sadness of the thought.

Brinley took Esmerelda's hand and gave it a quick, reassuring squeeze in an attempt to comfort her. He released her hand and nodded. Draining the puddle would be their best shot. Even placing a small blanket or towel would do some good for them. He was ready to defeat this witch and preferably not die trying.

Esmerelda smiled as Brinley took her hand. She hesitated to let go as he released it, then swallowed hard. "Well, I guess we should get moving then," she spoke. "I'd just as soon have this done and over with."

"Can't argue there," Micha said, starting off in the direction Haldir had indicated on the map. Micha drew his sword and carried it out as they walked, never one to risk being caught off guard. Seeing his action Esmerelda drew her own sword, though she wished she knew better how to use it.

They walked through the woods with a nervous urgency. What would await them when they arrived?

What awaited them was a puddle. The surrounding area was clear of any thing living or otherwise. Sygnet went to work, unrolling towels and quickly spreading them over the water, soaking up as much as she could. They had little time.

Suddenly the area grew cold and Sygnet drew her sword and raised it in a perfect stance, ready to face off. A trail of dark blue smoke dipped in and out of the trees, heading towards the group. Haldir took a protective position over Brinley as the smoke halted before them.

The puddle was mostly dried up. The towels had to be moved in order for her power to fade. As they stood, the smoke seemed to be getting thicker and more female like.

(Hey, good to see back. :) Feel free to dictate whether Esmerelda succeeds, don't want to throw things off if you had a plan of action in mind. )

Micha and Esmerelda quickly helped, draining as much water as they could. Micha drew his sword along with Sygnet, seeing her hand move to her weapon.

Esmerelda almost jumped at the sound of the weapons being drawn, but she quickly joined in and drew her own blade. She faced the strange smoke and stood beside Brinley. As it began to take form, though, the thought settled in her mind that she would be little help in this fight... Even if they could win. Her eyes darted back to the towels in the puddle and she hurried back. Galadriel had stated that the only way she knew to defeat this witch was the water. Quickly as she could she began pulling the saturated towels out of the puddle and tossing them aside. Still, some water remained, though. She pulled off her loose over shirt and the sash around her waist and quickly tried to soak up the last of the puddle.

As the water was swiftly snapped away, the dark blue smoke let out a deafening hiss and charged at those around the puddle. Sygnet’s sword flashed through the air and slipped through the shadow. The shadow faltered slightly, clearly disrupted by the elvish made weapon.

Esmerelda’s shirt as done it and the witch hissed again, the dark blue color flickering into a dark black color.

Brinley’s sword stabbed into the blackened shape and it let out a piercing scream before exploding into a large cloud of air that ruffled the hair and clothes on the victorious heroes.

The forest was still and warmth returned to the trees, as did the song of the birds. The sorceress no longer had control of the pool.

Esmerelda sat in the puddle, covered in mud and wide-eyed. She looked up to Brinley, then to Sugnet and Micha. Slowly she stood, a slight shiver rippling her skin as she stood damp and in not but a sleeveless vest. Suddenly, however, she felt warmth return to the forest and the goosebumps on her arms went away.

Esmerelda climbed out of the pool and stood before Brinley, a wide smile on her face. She slid her arms around his neck and lay her forehead on his shoulder. With a sigh of relief she spoke. “Is that it? Is she gone? For good?”
