As the "offspring," of Aidan and Nessa (the "tree baby") continues to grow and thrive under Lillian's motherly love, Nessa is being absorbed, physically, into the Cranshee. The process is slow, but it is clearly having a major negative effect on poor, trusting Nessa who might be starting to realize her fate.
Will Doctor Dawson and Lillian figure out how to reunite Nessa's body and soul?
Will they figure it out in time to save Nessa?
Will the Cranshee have its way?
The story just keeps getting better and better! No wonder Wooden Rose is my absolute most favorite web-comic!
