It seems that Merlin has been distracted since he brought us here. Usually he has time to walk in the garden or up on the ramparts with me. And we have long and rambling discussions before he gets to the point. But I’ve only seen him in passing.
He called for Noralei this morning and set her on a task in his workshop. All hush hush – behind locked doors. (I tried).
Neither Rumble nor Dunfallon have heard any rumors despite many attempts. The pixie did hold a long audience with his mentor the owl. And he was as tight beaked as the others.
(Dunfallon was pleased to announce that he has enlisted his wisdom to come up with a plan for reparations ).
I do believe he will come up with something yet.
