We shall leave Nonin-gal-dith tomorrow. So it was decided in my meeting with the High Fairy today.
With much to discuss it was a very long meeting. My major concerns centered around Willie and our custody of him. How were we to keep him from crying out or glowing at crucial times that called for silence or hiding?
To each objection I raised, his excellency had a solution.
Noralei will take charge of him. His prison will be tethered by a chain which she will hold, and each of us will be instructed in the spells that control Willie and his environment.
He demonstrated everything for me there and then.
It may look strange – leading a cage about that floats in the air – but it is very effective.
With our business out of the way, we passed the time discussing his ideas on the origin of fairies. A rather novel idea I have never heard before.
