"I wish you good health until next we meet." One youth, madly in love with Nattergalen, snuck behind the curtain after her performance with the hopes of being granted a brief meeting. By sheer coincidence, he spied her removing her outfit, but instead of flesh beneath the fabric there was an unnatural mesh of metal. He had learned the truth that she was nothing more than a doll created by a sorcerer. A member of her troupe force fully removed the boy as she repeated herself in the same monotone voice: "I wish you good health until next we meet."
