I am still disturbed by our experience of yesterday. What we have learned by that and going through the battlefield beforehand has been far less than we expected to find. But that which we did learn was momentous.
The mere thought of all that iron – just lying there – sends chills through me.
It’s all I could think about today as we traversed an empty plain. And the same thought was shared by Rumble and Dunfallon and the High Fairy too – the iron must be meant for use by the enemy in his planned assault on the Faerie Kingdom.
Yet for all that our enemy remains faceless – a complete mystery. We know only his/her/its chosen tools – wolves, trolls, and a vindictive Will’o’the Wisp.
