Sabine barely managed to escape from Akros with her life.
But the ocean isn't safe for someone whose power stems from the forests.

I'd like to see them try to walk in your footsteps."
Blossom flew toward them, her wings sending a smattering of pixie dust everywhere. It seemed to happen more often when she was overly excited. I want Blossom to send pixie dust all over my room 🤩
