>*You find Irin back in the clearing you left them earlier.*
>Irin: There you are! Did you find that no-good Magdalene?
>*You nod your head.*
>You did? Good! Now that we know where she is, we can figure out how to sabotage her sprite trapping operation...
>Did you know that sprites love turnips? It’s like candy to them. Fortunately Magdalene hasn’t been able to get any for a while.
>If we can get our hands on a rotten turnip, the sprites will avoid her completely!
<"How will that stop her from trapping them?"
>Irin: I’m talking about a really rotten turnip. You’ll know it when you smell it - and you’ll understand exactly why the sprites hate them so much!
>You can bring me one, right?
<Why do I have to get it? It's your idea.
<"I’ll see if Trout has any."
>Irin: Good! And make sure you hurry - she might not be in the same spot for very long!
<"Begin the rotten turnip hunt."
>Trout: Hello there. Do you need something?
<"Do you have any rotten turnips?"
>Trout: Ugh! What do you want one of those for?
<Descant:...It's a long story.
>Trout:...Actually, I’m not sure I want to know.
>But if you’re really sure you want one, my eastern field has been doing especially poorly since the forest started changing. I haven’t been able to check on it in a while - so you might find one there?
<"Check the eastern field."
>*You are now holding a Rotten Turnip for Irin.*
>*...Better bring it to Irin quickly. It stinks worse than anything you’ve ever smelled!*
<Gods, I hope I know what I'm doing...
>Irin: You found one, didn’t you? I could tell you were close when the sprites started hiding!
<Oh, THAT'S what tipped you off?
>*You quickly hand the turnip off to Irin, it's practically unbearable at this point.*
>Now I just need to slip this into Magdalene’s pack when she’s not looking. You'll be in charge of distracting her. Let's go!
<"Won’t she be able to smell the turnip?"
>Irin: Rotten turnips are a special kind of bad - it seems that magical beings are extra sensitive to the smell. They smell bad to other creatures too, of course, but nothing Magdalene will notice.
>*You can't help but notice that Irin seems...fine with the rotten turnip.*
>*You decide to give them the benefit of the doubt that they just didn't know you were also magical.*
>This will keep the sprites away from her for a long time! You'll be in charge of distracting her.
<"Let’s do this."
>Irin: Okay! Go talk to her whenever you’re ready. I’ll be waiting!
<"Leave in search of Magdalene."
>*You already know what to have Magdalene talk about. If Irin won't listen on their own, you'll make them listen. Hopefully nobody suspects anything...*
