There were several on the North side; one on either side of the door, one in the bedroom in which she had so recently enjoyed her time with the faerie, and one large one beside the table at which they were viewing the map. The door was perhaps the most obvious point of entry, however, and there she would set up her traps, a process taking a few minutes to properly set up. Anything coming through it would be in for a fairly nasty, fiery surprise. The East wall had a pair of windows as well, which she would be able to plant simple alarms on in case something should come at them through there.
Lord Aaron remained on standby, pacing between the windows and regularly checking the map while Chloe worked, his own preparations already made. As she finished the last of her alarms, however, the old mage declared; "Something is coming... There, to the left of the path." He stood by one of the Northern windows as he said, and if Chloe glanced outside she would at first see nothing. As she scanned around, however, she would see something odd; imprints appeared on the ground, barely visible in the moonlight but still visible for their massive size and the way that the grass around them seemed to wilt. It was hard to say jut how large the invisible creature was, and even its shape was totally obscured without so much as a shimmer to form its outline.
The invisible creature had a long gait and grew closer by the second, but a span of fifty feet still separated it from the front of the cabin, and as they had spotted it before it could attack she and Lord Aaron - who was already muttering an incantation - could turn its surprise attack back upon it.
