Verctissa will move to the group around the boy and tell them to get him inside and to warm him--wrap him in blankets near a fire or get him into hot water if such is available--and to move quickly. (She's trying to seem a bit imperious and like she has some clue what's going on.)
She'll say to the hammer wielder, "Is the boy yours? That thing was sucking the heat from him like a daemon wind. Yet it feared to strike you. What manner of creature is it, and why has it turned its wrath on a village smith?"
The man with the apron pulls it off himself and wraps it around the boy. "We will need Nikoli," he says holding the boys face to the man with the sledgehammer.
"He is coming," one of the horseman says as a crowd begind to form.
The man with the sledgehammer reaches out and put his hand to the boys face. "Cold as Lujak's heart," he says. "He lives. Nikoli can maybe save his ear,"
Verctissa notices the boys ear is frozen and the side of his face seems burned by the cold.
"I am Andra," the man with the sledgehammer says to Verctrissa. "I thank you for saving my son and banishing that demon. I knbow not what creature it is but I know it comes from Lujak the sorceror who was exiled from the town just this past week. He promised vengeance on us."
