My shoulder was still on fire, but there was no pain anywhere else, and other than the shock of being blown backward and stabbed, I was peachy. “I think so. What was that, like a magic pipe bomb?”
The present lay in tatters on the floor, its ribbon coil¬ing and snapping like a snake. Cal stomped on it, and it went still. “Seems like it,”?? he said grimly.
“And it was ensorcelled?? to seek you out,” Dad added. He looked so worried and angry that I decided not to give him a hard time for using a word like ensorcelled.
He is agreeing that it "seems like" it was a "magic pipe bomb." ("Seems like" means all appearances and evidence would lead one to think that was the case.)
"Ensorcell" is a rare word (My web browser spell check does not recognize "ensorcell" as a word.) which means "bewitched," or "enchanted."
