Another day has gone by and we were the only ones on the road again. The last fairy town is in sight as we settle for the night. We should reach it tomorrow.
It looks much larger than I thought it would be. And bits of wall can be discerned, stretching across the horizon.
I wondered if it was a new addition. The defenses didn’t look to be normal for a frontier town that faces human territory.
Or so I commented to Rumble. He set me aright.
What I took for walls he says are barracks set up for fairy troops. He guesses that a whole army has been moved down from the capital.
Considering this, soldiers may be all that we will find there. They may have forced all in the town to relocate.
