Ebvion stuck his right cheek out. "You mentioned I'm a good hiding place, so I thought you were using me to hide. It makes sense." He wasn't sure how he felt about Index earlier, being too scared and surprised, but now he felt belittled and spoken down to.

"What buttons am I supposed to push... Will bringing you into this reality hurt people? I've heard eldritch can do a lot of bad things if they enter the reality wrong." That got Ebvion thinking: perhaps it would be best to tell Celeste. "I think I should tell Mom... or the school..."

Index was quiet for a long moment. They were thinking, processing. The child was certainly cautious which wasn't overly bad, it would be slightly disappointing if they were too gullible. "I can easily designate which buttons you need to press Ebvion, if you are willing. I also give you my word that bringing me into this reality is not dangerous. To some that may mean nothing, but I am a creature whose's life revolves around knowledge so my word means much much more." Index shifted and retreated backwards, to hover the front of it's body just above the orb. "I cannot stop you Ebvion, even if I could I wouldn't. Force is a last resort, it is much better for things to happen naturally."

Force? How dare this thing possess one of their butterflies and speak about using force?

Ebviony wasn't going to let Index take control here. "You are using my butterflies. I think it's above your position to make me do anything. I simply want to know what I'm getting into and what I will receive out of this," they said with stoic confidence. "You're a being of knowledge? Then how much do you know about fae?"

Index’s appendages struck the ethereal mind more forcefully than usual, this was starting to get annoying. How much clearer could Index get with this? “I already said I could not force you to do anything. As for what your getting into, I will repeat: The literal pushing of buttons on my mind to reinstate my revive protocols. That is what is happening. That is it. As for what you receive, it’s up to you now isn’t it? I’m more than happy to make a deal for my revival.”

Index paused again for a long time, the appendages quickly moving and tapping away at the orb as Index tried to pool all the information he had on the fae. “I must ask you be more specific. If you ask what I know on fae we would be here for at least a week, and that’s just me on the generalities. Like many things the fae are split up into groups, the tricksters, the protectors of nature, the malicious, the list goes on. I’d be best for both of us to narrow your desired topic.”

Ebvion tried hard to not blush from his mistake. There was no need to. He made no mistake at all. Index was just being unclear with its words.

"A-Anyway!" he stuttered, dropping eye contact with Index for a split second. Which was much more difficult than it should be. It had so many eyes. "I'm building up an army. I, um... I need to get a notebook from inside, but I want information on some courts... No! I need to know about allies."

Ebvion fell silent and bit the bottom of his lip. "I need to think about it. Um... Your side of the agreement. Will you help me if I release you? Or will you betray me? You'll be an enemy if you hurt me. I have a lot of friends, eldritch and fae and witches."

Index continued to click and clack, not once having their gaze move away from Ebvion. “The fae courts and allies? Yes I do believe I could tell you of that.” The child was building up an army? What could they possibly need an army for? This was certainly getting more interesting.

Index couldn’t help but laugh when witches were mentioned. “Witches.....a witch is the one that triggered the chain of events that led to my death. Yes you have my promise that I will assist you and give you the information you desire. This seems like a fair enough trade.”

Ebvion smiled, pleased that he guessed one thing that was an actual threat to Index. "We have a deal, then. I'll think about what I need later. I'm ready to push the buttons."

Index gave some pleased chitters and moved down to the orb. The top two limbs moving over and pressing down a unique seven button combination for Ebvion to see. The limbs would have phased through the orb but it was just to demonstrate it. “Now please repeat it exactly like that. Accidentally pressing something wrong might cause.....problems.”

Ebvion paid close attention to the combination. One. Two. Three... Seven. A little longer than Ebvion expected, but he could handle that. It wouldn't be fit for a monarch to show intellectual weakness by asking for a repeat, just in case.

"I won't cause problems," they stated confidently before performing the combination. They were accurate, though they hesitated a few times and resisted looking up at Index for help.

The last button was pushed and Ebvion looked up at the eldritch. "I did it. Now what?"

When the final button was pushed, a small humming sound began to be emitted by the orb. Each symbol on the orb began to glow a bright blue and the orb’s segments stretched outwards, rapidly twisting and turning. A dark green ooze began to spill from the orb, wrapping around it and slowly forming a snake like figure. Finally there was a bright blast of light, and as the light faded Index was infront of Ebvion in the flesh.

Index’s appendages did a few clicks and clacks to make sure everything was alright before giving a soft chuckle. “Thank you Ebvion. You have done me a gr-.....ooooooooh” Index’s eyes suddenly became even more frantic than usual, their appendages spasming as well. They slowly slid back and rested their entire body on the ground. “aaaaahhh. I should....have planned for this......everything spins.....others touching...my mind...can cause serious....vertigo.....for me.”
