A little stark and dour, but I can see what you're going for. If this was voice acted or something, an overdramatic delivery might make it enjoyably cheesy. I think you could just say they're chasing Veigar (or Ziggs, but either way, it's no great twist), all the dancing around it is really dumb as someone who can put 2 and 2 together. It's like when you're sibling is like, "I've got a huge secret and you'll never guess" but you can totally see what they're hiding behind their back. It's just annoying. But after that last sale <_< this is an excellent recovery.
