As ordered, I returned to the High Fairy’s chamber this morning with Rumble and Dunfallon in tow. The pixie was wide-eyed at the sights within. It was a task just to keep him focused on the meeting at hand. Even so he was the first to notice that an envoy from Merlin was present in the chamber.
The High Fairy told us to pay him no heed as he would share his message later. Still it was difficult not to glance at the owl waiting atop its perch on the far side of the room.
His excellency recounted to my friends all that we have learned from Willie and ended with a plea for all of us to undertake a new mission. To the lands of the humans.
To this the owl added the intelligence about the enemy running rampant in the human territories. Thus our suspicions were confirmed from our experience with the refugees on our way back to Nonin-gal-dith.
Though the High Fairy proposed that we take time to consider our answer before committing to the mission, each of us volunteered on the spot.
