Simon was of course glad that Endless agreed to join him. He wouldn't be able to go and scream at the trees in frustration about the very last ingredient being contaminated and basically ruining everything, but he could instead spend more time with Endless and that was A+ as well. He tried not to pay attention to the small little itty bitty voice in his head that was saying was it like, really so bad that the water hyssop had been topped with some sap? Especially sap that made people suggestible.. Of course it was just a thought though, purely hypothetical and fantastical and not at all something he would entertain for more than a few moments or something he would actually do in real life. The devil on his shoulder, so to speak. If he hadn't said anything Endless never would have known..
Again, purely hypothetical. He would have to be a pretty horrible person to actually do that to him.
"Awesome! Hopefully there's not much snow actually in the forest, but we'll see. Water hyssop grows, shockingly, by water so we'll be heading towards the marsh." Meanwhile he was already grabbing a scrap of paper and rooting around for something to write with. He found a pencil and scrawled a quick note: "Out for ingredients - be back shortly", which he would have to attach to the front door in case Tehodis and Charlotte returned while they were out gathering the flower. While he was writing Endless asked if it was okay to leave the partially-made potion here alone and Simon nodded, waving his non-writing hand in the air absently. "Yeah if the heat is turned off it'll be fine to cool down and we can re-boil it later to add the flowers."
Finished with the note, he whistled in the direction of his bedroom. "Kilik, we'll be back. I'm leaving the door unlocked in case Tehodis and Lila get back while we're gone, but if any strangers show up and try to get in you know what to do. Don't knock over the potion. Thanks!" He took a quick look around to see if there was anything else he needed to think of before they left, then nodded to himself and opened the front door, stepping back and waving his arm like a showman towards the outside world. "Alright, we're off!"
