Late at night in the Black Bulls base, Vanessa Enoteca is in the common area having a late night drink. She thinks about how she and her squad mates need to get stronger for the upcoming war with the Spade Kingdom, and realizes that it does not matter how. As Vanessa is about to leave, she runs into Yami Sukehiro who wishes her luck on her quest.
Vanessa returns to the Witches' Forest and requests that the Witch Queen teach her a special ancient magic. Vanessa tries to explain the upcoming war with Spade, though the Queen reveals that she already knew and expresses insult at Vanessa thinking that she would not know. The Queen agrees to help, but on one condition; magical beast in the forest are interfering with the security golems, putting the forest at risk if the Spade Kingdom attacks, and tasks Vanessa with getting rid of them. The Queen assigns two other witches to help her, Samantha Kravitz, who is quick to panic, much like Finral Roulacase, and Elvira Aguirre, who is snarky and stubborn, much like Noelle Silva.
The three witches find the beasts that have been causing trouble with the golems and Vanessa uses her Thread Magic magic to make a net to hold the beasts back. She tells Samantha and Elvira to attack the bests, but as it turns out, the two witches do not have attack-type magic. After getting away from the beasts, Vanessa questions them about their Magic Attributes. Samantha answers that she uses Sound Magic, which allows her to generate various sounds, and Elvira shows that she can use Illusion Magic, which allows her to create visual illusions.
Vanessa visits the Queen again and tells her that the witches she assigned to help her are useless, then accuses the Queen of giving her an impossible task to make her give up. The Queen responds by asking Vanessa what she can do with her magic.
Vanessa walks through town and runs into Dominante Code, who is selling Magic tools, since her Husband cannot get a job due to being a wanted man. She tries to sell Vanessa a magic washboard that can get any stains out of clothing, Vanessa is not interested, saying that a washboard will not help with her predicament. Dominante argues that everything is good for something and this gives Vanessa an idea.
That evening, Vanessa investigates the behavior of the troublesome magical beasts and comes up with a plan. The next morning, Vanessa tells Samantha and Elvira that they were going to relocate the magical beasts to another area where they will not be any trouble. The two witches think that they cannot do it, but Vanessa assures them that they are the only ones who can do. To demonstrate, Vanessa makes some string dolls for a group of three little girls who happen to be passing by. She has Elvira color the dolls to look like the three girls, and has Samantha make voices come from the dolls.
To get rid of the large reptilian magical beasts, Vanessa and the others lure them away by creating string dolls that look and sound just like the small squirrel-like magical beasts that the larger beasts prey on. The witches manage to get the beasts to the further away area that Vanessa designed for them, but the real squirrel-like beasts were frightened by the sudden arrival of their predators and hid behind the witches. To scare away the large beasts, Vanessa creates a massive monster-like string doll, has Elvira make the monster look as scary as possible, and has Samantha give the monster a loud roar.
After returning to the witches' forest, the three are swarmed by the rest of the forests witch population and congratulated for their accomplishment. As it turns out, the Witch Queen was broadcasting their exploit for all to see.
Vanessa meets the Queen again and tells her that she no longer needs the unstoppable spell she initially came to learn, saying that her creativity and her ability to make people smile are all that she needs. Before leaving for home, she goes to thank Dominante for the help she indirectly gave, and Dominante replies that if Vanessa is really grateful, then she will buy a magic item that makes bubbles in the bathtub, which Vanessa refuses to do. Dominante laments this, but she has made enough money anyway, noting that the Witch Queen may seem cold, but really does look out for them.
Vanessa returns to the Black Bulls base and finds Captain Yami in the common area having a late night drink. He offers some to Vanessa, but she refuses, believing that it is best for her to keep her senses about her for the time being.
