Stag goes to Vermillion Ribbon ahead of time, a couple hours before noon. Noticing a very long line and sign saying "Dancing today only: Blossom", he bribes his way into the club through neighboring apartment. Having talked to some people outside who described Blossom as the most amazing and beautiful dancer ever, lauding her performances at the [[Tattered Rainbow]], Stag develops an irrational need to get past her guards to get backstage, but does not succeed. Guen comes later, shapeshifting in. Gutts, who was looking at houses and buying another elephant, comes with slaves, presenting a massive bribe to get in, really irritating the patrons on line. Varden's gem of desire allows he and Jorias to get past the doorman with no problem.

After introductions, Pollen Song indicates that he has seen a sapphire containing five glowing lights, mounted in a necklace in possession of unexalted member of imperial family. He gave it to a dancer at the Vermillion Ribbon named [[Volaria]]. Volaria supposed to be there, but isn't. While this is happening, two dragon-blooded enter with eyeless servants and start questioning a waitress named [[Rila]]. Just as the circle moves to investigate, Blossom starts dancing, transfixing everyone in the room. With eye contact, she plants suggestions into most people's heads:

After Stag had [[Stag thoughts on Broken-Winged Crane|pondered]] how to extract information from the [[Broken-Winged Crane]] without going insane or becoming cursed, he first tried summoning [[Fern]] to read it, but she refused, eventually getting so frightened she turned into a plant. She did confirm that it is a low-level demon, however. Lacking other options, Stag possessed the book using God Ways.
  
 +
The demon fought against Stag's intrusion, trying to cast him out, while schizophrenically welcoming him, trying to lure him into understanding of its contents. As a result, stag only remained for a few seconds, but in that time understood two things about the book. One was the demon's taxonomy, the demons that spawned it and those that spawned them. The second was the book's purpose: to give knowledge and, once the reader was properly prepped, to open a gateway to hell and even higher knowledge.
  
Split loot. Posess book. Go to G'ma bright.
+
Once Stag was done with the book, the decided to give it to Grandmother Bright as planned. She reacts strangely to the book but, as promised, gives them the [[Soul_Mirror:_Memory_Gems|sapphire]]. The circle asks about [[Ronwe]] and are told its name and that it is a second circle demon. Grandmother knows it is the messenger soul of a third circle demon, but doesn't say which one. She only knows of Ronwe because it can breed demons by mating with ghosts.
  
She reacts strangely to book, but gives them gem. They ask about retrieving memories from the gems. She suggests she might be able to arrange it, in exchange for what the secrets are. Find insignificant hotel.
+
They also ask about retrieving memories from the gems. She suggests that she might be able to arrange it, in exchange for what the secrets are. The circle considers this, but makes no decision. Ultimately, they elect to wait on attempts to pull the secrets from the gems until they see what Hammer's training camp is all about. They hole up in an insignificant hotel for the night.
