Thankfully there was no crowd to see us off from Nonin-gal-dith. The few curious ones were focused on Noralei and Dunfallon – Noralei for the mere fact that a long time resident was leaving; and Dunfallon for the strangeness that a pixie can bring to any non-pixie community.
Of course, the High Fairy would not have wanted it any other way. He desires to maintain as perfect a peace as he can as long as he can.
For the day may come…
But that is what we will try to prevent.
And the High Fairy added a final caution – not to discuss our mission with anyone along the way – even with fellow fairies.
And that in particular was what the four of us discussed long into the night at the end of our first day’s journey.
