Challenge #03707-J054: Response Beyond Rime or Reason

Some, slightly drunk, mix of young half-elves and humans sneak up behind Wraithvine and friends, and drench them in ice cold water as a prank. Thank goodness, the day WAS rather hot, though the idiots THOUGHT they were being funny. -- Anon Guest

It was a common prank. First step was to have the common spell of Frosty Touch. Second step was to have at least one pail of water. The prankers chill the water until it was gelid.

It was beautiful to watch with the water and the pail so cold that the steam from it fell downwards. Little icicles formed on that patchwork hat and some of it even splashed on the wizarding prentice at the Elf's side. They got a solid minute to laugh. Then they realised that they had Hoarbathed the wrong wizard.

The Fittleton Driver was desperate. They tried for a soft landing,
