in which bella does not have long to think of something

There are more elves now. They're impatient. They ran off Bella's escort with private whispers Bella didn't hear, Bella's subtle arts are jammed again, and they're faster than she is.

Where is she -

Celo's there, there are more elves now but maybe there's someone with him or he can put Bella where he puts his stuff or something -

And this is how Bella runs headlong into the outdoor session of Mixed Melee with seventeen armed elves chasing her, and spots Callahan, and has an even better idea.

"MY WARRANTY," she screams at the top of her overtaxed lungs, "IS AT RISK!"

Callahan blows an ear-piercing whistle.

"Five percent term bonus per head for anybody who puts down an intruder!" she yells. "Screaming girl's mine, don't touch her!"

The students' weapons are mocked, but there are a lot more than seventeen of them. And when anybody takes a hit from one of Bella's pursuers, Celo is right there with his divine healing.

The coach doesn't even have to draw a weapon.

Until, that is, the seventeen elves are lying on the ground in convincing illusory death, at which point each one of them wakes up in turn to the sight of her standing over them with a mace. She points. They run. Repeat with next elf.

One or two of them might have put up a fuss even then, if it weren't for the fact that all of their weapons have gone mysteriously missing.

"All right, fun's over," she says. "Fucktoy, take Screaming Girl and get out of my sight. Everybody else, here are your bounties. Argue and I'll take them away." She starts listing demeaning nicknames.

"I got my knife back," he observes cheerfully. "You okay?"

"Sucks," he observes. "Need anything?"

Celo snorts. "Yeah, that'd be nice. Well, at least next time they come after you they won't be so well-armed."

"Maybe I should just follow you around all the time," he says wryly.

"Anyway, though, it's good that Callahan's on your side," he says. "Where do you wanna go? Back to the dorm?"

"What, you mean like... food, picnic blankets...?" he inquires, smiling.

"I have that stuff," says Celo.

"Yep! And in case those fuckheads come back, I also have all their hardware," he says brightly. "Let's have a picnic."

They are just passing by a nice grassy spot!

Celo moves his hands as though shaking out a blanket, and at some point during this motion, the blanket appears. He lets it waft down to the ground, tugs on it to smooth it out, and then sits down and starts appearing food items for Bella to choose from.
