(Yeah, that works!)
Lancer blushed slightly in embarrassment before returning his focus to the task at hand. "So, um, you know the plants that are popping up everywhere?" Lancer stammered, a bit nervously at first, but as he continued speaking, the awkwardness slipped out of his tone, replaced by determination. "We figured out that the fountain the king is guarding is what is making them appear. And it's just going to keep making more plants pop up unless something is done to stop it. It's posing a danger to everyone, and I don't want anyone to get hurt because of it. However, the king does not share my concerns, and is ignoring the threat it presents." Sadness wormed its way into Lancer's tone as he said the last statement; it still upset him that his father was acting so callously when people's lives were in danger. Recovering, Lancer glanced between the guards, wondering if his speech was going to be successful in convincing them to help. "We need help to get the king away from the fountain so my friends can seal it."

Ralsei smiled brightly, happy to have been able to help. "Sure! We'll go find more right away!" Ralsei said cheerfully, before glancing at Kris, who nodded. Both waved to Fable before setting off again to find more wood.

The guards were shocked. They had never expected nor seen the young prince take initiative like this before. What he was speaking of, it may even require removing the King from power! However, the guards felt a mixture of happiness and pity. They were happy that Lancer had realized that what the King was doing was bad and sought to fix his fathers wrongdoings, but they also felt pity for the boy. It was obviously paining him to do this, and even if the King was a horrible person, he was still Lancers father. If they were to go through with this and succeed (somehow), it would be terribly taxing on the poor boy.
"Well, we certainly want to help you..." one guard nervously spoke up. "...But what can the four of us do? We're just a couple of guards, and the King is far more powerful then us."

Fable smiled as he watched Kris and Ralsei leave before resuming stirring the cauldrons contents.

Lancer was relieved to hear the guards wanted to help, and felt slightly more confident than he had before as he continued, "It's true that a group as small as us is not as powerful as the king. But if everyone worked together, we would be strong enough. Even as powerful as he is, the king can still be overwhelmed by teamwork and numbers. Will you help us gather everyone together so I can ask for their assistance with this, please?" Lancer looked at the guards hopefully. Though he still felt extremely sad at the idea of putting his father in prison, he knew he would feel a lot worse if he did nothing and someone got hurt. So he focused on that, trying to ignore the sorrowful part of what was looming ahead.

Kris and Ralsei scoured the storage room, eventually finding some more pieces of wood hidden among all the other items. They gathered them up, then headed back towards Fable. Along the way, they narrowly avoided a few plants thanks to Kara, and both hurried as they realized some of those plants hadn't been there before. They needed to seal the fountain, soon. Hoping Lancer would be more successful convincing the guards and subjects than the king, they returned to where Fable was waiting.

The four guards were silent for a moment, contemplating what Lancer had said before one of them cheerfully chirped to the others "I bet I can get more people to help then you guys! I call the south side of the castle!" while bounding away with a wide grin on their face. This snapped the other guards out of their musings as they called back that they wouldn't be beaten along with one side of the castle that they would go to to spread the word. The four guards quickly dispersed with grins and thumbs up sent Lancer's way, one of them shouting "You've got our support boss!" before they dissipated.

Fable was warily eyeing the room around him when the others returned, shooting them a strained grin that quickly fell. In the room there were more plants then before, now growing in places where there definitely couldn't have been soil. The plants that had been growing before were now much bigger, and were so tall that they would tower over even Rouxls if he was here.
"It seems that we may have less time then we thought." Fable said worriedly, gesturing to the plants sudden spurt of growth.

A smile spread across Lancer's face at the guards' reactions, and he waved as they set off. Lancer was relieved- and a bit surprised- by how quickly the guards agreed to help. Lancer still didn't consider himself very convincing, but since some of the guards had listened, he felt more hopeful that the others would too. And Lancer knew he needed to convince them; he'd seen quite a few plants that were nearly as tall as Rouxls as the two were walking, and wasn't sure how much taller they could get but knew he didn't want to find out. Things were getting out of control, and the fountain had to be stopped. Why didn't his father see that? Lancer had to quickly shake off that train of thought, before he got lost in sadness and frustration. To distract himself, he turned to Rouxls and said, "We should find a large area where everyone will be able to fit safely. We might need to clear out some plants though, there's even more now than before..."

Ralsei, Kris, and Kara nodded in response to Fable's statement; the trio were all worried by the amount and size of the plants. Even Ralsei, normally optimistic to a fault, didn't seem to have any encouraging thoughts to share at the moment. "There's so many, and they're so big," Ralsei muttered helplessly as he looked around at the plants. It was clear that not being able to do anything was getting to him. All this time, Ralsei had eagerly awaited the Lightners arriving and helping him seal the fountain and restoring the Dark World to how it should be. Never once before had he doubted that everything would work out just as the legend said. But the plants seemed so overwhelming now that he was starting to worry whether they'd really be able to fix everything. What if they couldn't get past the king and seal the fountain? What if the plants were able to keep growing unchecked and people got hurt? What if he failed?
Kris noticed Ralsei's worries skyrocketing, and gave him a gentle pat on the shoulder, though they knew that the gesture wouldn't be able to take away his fears. They felt sad that they could not really reassure him right now; they certainly couldn't promise everything would work out when they were feeling the same doubts as Ralsei was.
Kara could tell both of them needed a distraction, though she had no idea what could get their focus off of the problems literally towering over them. "Um... How about you two look through all the materials again to make sure we have enough of everything?" she eventually suggested, grasping at the first idea that struck her. Ralsei and Kris seemed to have been pulled out of their thoughts slightly by the suggestion, and Kara hoped that by the time they'd finished the task, Lancer would return with good news.

"We could gather everyone in front of the castle." Rouxls suggested. "It'a a large, flat area where many can fit and if there are any plants there, they can be easily spotted." He pointed out, pausing for a second before mentioning. "There will also be more guards there to talk to." Rouxls said. While Rouxls was confident that they could get most darkners to help them, internally he was still concerned. Even if they were few, there would surely be a few guards stupidly loyal to the King for one reason or another, ones who refused to stand against him. He could only hope that these guards would be swayed to their side by Rouxls opposing the King. And should they be attacked by them, well, Rouxls hadn't remained in the Kings favor by being weak.

Fable said nothing as he watched the others sort through the items at hand. He understood what Kara was doing and didn't have anything to really add to it. If they didn't shut the fountain soon then they may need to start cutting the plants by the stem, near but not directly at the base, and then carefully moving the top away and to a corner of the room. That way they wouldn't have to worry about the seeds of the plants and would only have to worry about the occasional root that poked out of the ground. For a moment he considered burning the roots and plants all together but decided against it. Who knew what could be released into the air if that happened.

Lancer nodded; Rouxls was right. Everyone gathering outside was the best option. Inside would be far too crowded with how many plants there were. Though, there would probably still be many plants outside too, considering the large numbers inside. Lancer sighed at the mention of more guards; he had come to the same conclusion as Rouxls that there would probably be some who wouldn't help. They might have gotten lucky that the first group they approached were willing to help; what if the others refused? Well, they'd already come this far, there was no point giving up now. "We'd better go talk to them now, before everyone else arrives. It'll be easier to convince them if we all present a united front, than if they see us arguing first."

Kara glanced around at the plants as Kris and Ralsei went about their task. She floated a bit closer to the nearest one to examine it, though she was careful not to get too close to it. She looked for the safest place to cut the plants, in case they needed to cut down any that might remain after the fountain was sealed- or sooner, if Lancer and Rouxls didn't return soon. If the plants did stick around after the fountain was dealt with, Kara wondered what they would do with them. After all, they couldn't just leave poisonous plants lying around. Was there a way to safely destroy them?
Kris and Ralsei eventually finished counting the materials, and the distraction appeared to have served its purpose, though both still had rather worried expressions. They turned back to the cauldron to see how the potion was progressing.
