Leif (thinking): What’s going on? If this is about my parents — no, wait, Elisa doesn’t know who they are. She does know about Thorn. What was that opera house’s name . . . ?
The show is not going on at the Royal Ceannic Opera. The building is being evacuated, and a federal magical response team being called in, to deal with a plumbing problem that our entertainment reporter on the scene calls “totally bananas.”
Fast-growing plants are filling the building’s pipes. The cause is still unconfirmed, but one mage, who asked to remain anonymous because they were not authorized to comment on an ongoing situation, said “There is a GOOD REASON why certain potions are HIGHLY ILLEGAL.”
Although most of the crowd has been evacuated safely, one balcony level is inaccessible, with all the exits blocked. It is unconfirmed whether the cast of Leachtric, who are the only people involved that most of you have heard of, are out yet.
“I’m only trained to cover disasters on stage,” added our reporter. “I better get hazard pay for this.”
Leif (thinking): I want to ping Thorn and ask if he and the others made it out . . . But if he is in that one balcony level, I better not disturb him.
