Apparently we were the only travelers headed for the frontier. Everyone we passed today was traveling away from the border.
Dunfallon waved to each one and got a greeting in return as they passed along. One, a pedlar, tried to sell him some boots, claiming to be a fairy well known among the pixie communities of the north.
Another traveler knew Noralei. So we were held up while they conversed. The man was bowled over that she had left Nonin-gal-dith. He told all of us that rumors were everywhere about unrest on the border. And that human communities were broken up and clogging their roads to the west. (Later I relayed that news to the High Fairy).
So far, many have stared at our floating cage, but none have asked any questions. Of help has been the cover that Dunfallon created for it.
And just possibly Willie appreciates being shielded from the heat of the sun. It makes one wonder, could kindness change the hatred the Wisp feels toward fairies?
