As the practice sessions devolve into play, I take myself out of sight and cancel the illusion that conceals me. Then I walk back to the group as though I have just this moment arrived.
I stop briefly for a terse consultation with Wish and Pike, then move purposefully toward Alise and her family.
I waste no time. "Milady Alise... a word with you, if I may."
We walk several steps beyond earshot before I speak. "Milady, you do yourself no credit when you berate those who are sworn to protect you and your babes. That was ill done, milady, and it is in my mind that you owe them an apology."
