Wormwood went around foraging, trying to not get seperated to (o far from Melody. Despite looking around for half an hour, he only found bad or wet wood. None of which could be used. He decided to check on the birdy duo, see if they had more luck. "Hey Melody, ya found anythin'? Just a bunch o' useless twigs over here."

She stared off into the distance and blinked a few times. ‘I don’t notice much of a differenceI think,’ she said squinting her eyes as though it might make a difference.

Well, is it easier or harder for you to look off into the distance now?”

UhhI think…’

Then you did nothing.” The bird hopped down and clung to the collar of the girls’ sweater. “Look at how mine look, and just focus on that. Got it?”

Beatrice noticed the pupils of the girls’ eyes retract, making the iris seem more and more solid, only to then open back up and rest in a dilated state. “See? Like I said, you have my eyes. You should be able to remember how to use them like that with time.”

Everything looks more crisp.’ Suddenly reminded of why they were out in the woods to begin with she answered back with, ‘UhNothing yet,’ as she threw a quick look around for anything that looked burnable. ‘Oh, hey! What about this?’

The Tunnelgrub came over to take a look at the wood. "Well I'll be... Good find!" He gave her a smile. Then he took a look at her. Caution tinged his voice as he said "Erm...ya alright? Yar eyes are kind of..." He trailed off, not finishing the sentence.

She stared at him with a blank face. ‘Huh? Yeah, I feel fine. I can see a bit clearer now, but…,’ she blinked with an added eyelid as she paused.

I told you earlier, when we were still with the others. She has my eyes.” The bird positioned herself back on top of Melodys’ head. “She just needed a reminder on how to use them again."

Do my eyes look weird now?’

I should think there is nothing weird about my eyes, so no; your eyes are not weird.”

It took the winter a couple of seconds to make sense out of the discussion. "Oh. Erm, no they're fine. Look more like birdy's' is all. Surprised me, ya know?" He smiled at her."Good job findin' the firewood!" He almost patted her head, than realized that would be patronizing. Instead he started to gather some of the wood.
After some time, he asked the bluebird "How good is Melody at bein' quiet? If a fight breaks out, it might be best to have her hide away. Or do ya have somethin' up yer sleaves that could come in handy?"

Melody gave wormwood a blank stare as he seemed to fidget; as if he were indecisive over some thoughts.

"I have no clue. She barely seems to talk as is until she feels otherwise. I simply want to listen to her sing. If she unfortunately happens to meet with tragedy then I move on. I am not her guardian. I am her admirer." -Beatrice

Not wanting to push, Wormwood changed the topic. "Hm. Would ya sing somethin' for us later? Campfire and music are s'pposed to go well together." Another encouraging smile."How old are ya, anyway?"

"Well, that's rather uncouth of you. You should never ask an avian their age. That's just common courtesy. Furthermore, I don't feel like singing, so no thanks." -Beatrice

After some surprise, Wormwood smiled awkwardly and pointed at Melody "I, erm....was talking to her, actually."
He gave Melody another encouraging smile. "Well?"

'Well, um. If she doesn't want to sing, she shouldn't have to. I think?' Meldoy answered, completely missing the point.

"There, you see. It's not mannerly to pressure others into your cheerful imagination. Also, shouldn't we continue looking for sticks or something?"

"I...that's...." Wormwood was at a loss for words, then sighed, giving up for now. "Alright, I apologize. Let's keep looking, a little bit more should be enough." Shaking his head in confusion, the Darkling went off looking for wood, but despite his efforts, he was still too much in thought about the strange Changeling and the Bird, not finding anything useful.

She saw a piece that was sticking partway out of a small shrub bush. 'Found one.'

Apparently, frustration can be a motivator, and a good one at that. The Darkling found a few dry looking branches and gathered them up. "Me too." Finally, that is. Wormwood helped Melody gather up her wood, taking some himself to "more evenly distribute the weight".... Then he said "Looks like we have enough for a while. Let's head back!"
As they made their way back, he decided to have another go. "Say, Melody, how old are ya?"

I’m not sure. When I try to think about it numbers just keep getting jumbled around, but nothing really stands out.’
