"But  I don't have wind," Hillary.

Andre and Andrea arrive at the Brown Sorceress home.  They are amazed at how easily they can stroll into the trap filled mansion.  “She is probably watching us,” he says.
            “This place gives me the creeps,” Andrea.

“That’s a first for you,” he says.

“I’m surprised to see you here, “Czarina says out of the shadows.

“Fools Gold, “says Andre.

“We have come to discuss the details of Hillary’s ring. Well actually we have a plan, yes Fools Gold,” says Andre.

“We’ll replace the ring with that,” Andrea.

“Iron Sulfide,that’s good,”she says in a hiss.

“The gold will interrupt her control of it,” Andrea explains.

“I am well aware of what it will do. You’ll need more than that. She is the best Alchemist of all time.  Fools Gold won’t fool her.  Come back when you have more,” she says.

“You don’t sound like you care or are willing to help,”Andre taunts again walking closer to her face this time.

“I don’t want to get burned in one of her chemical fires,do you?Well keep digging,” she commands.
