We passed by the first human outpost today. Dunfallon checked it out from the air and Rumble made sure all was clear on the ground. While they saw to their tasks I talked with Noralei about her time at Merlin’s castle. And eventually circled around to her observations about the Will’o’the Wisp.
She knew little more than the new prison she had helped fashion for him. It is larger inside than the outside confines – part of the spell Merlin cast over it. He is right at home for it contains a good deal of his swamp. And at times he sings like a contented song bird. Though she says she understands not a word.
And I knew that Merlin must know that of which he sings.
We moved into the outpost at the ‘all clear’ from the boys.
And I was left to ponder.
