I awoke this morning from a deeper than usual sleep. I was thankful that it was not disturbed by dreams or waking visions. But I immediately knew something was wrong.
Only one pendant was suspended around my neck. The one Merlin gave me was missing.
The memory of Tog’s curiosity leapt to my mind. So I went in search of the pixie chief.
And could not locate him. Nor indeed had anyone seen him since last night.
In the middle of my dilemma, Geog returned from below. He brought news that all are welcome to come down to a clan meeting that the trolls are convening. But I felt I could not go until I found my pendant. Rumble and Dunfallon agreed and we told the brothers to go on without us.
They were reluctant at first until I suggested they could be a big help if they were to look for Tog and my pendant down in the valley. A homesick Grimace was quick to comply.
So with some of Dunfallon’s new friends we scoured the secret places in and around the pixie burrow.
