It is hard to describe the havoc the ups and downs of our emotions did to our day. Let me just say that the final result struck a most happy high note.
We started our day with a reply on my scroll from the High Fairy. I could tell he was quite distressed about the unknown status of our companion Noralei. The mere fact that he reacted in this manner was very upsetting to us. His excellency also debated whether or not to involve Merlin. But he ended the message with the suggestion to us to keep on with what we were doing.
We did. And at long last arrived at the large body of water Dunfallon had searched yesterday.
One look out over its vastness caused my heart to sink anew.
My pendant, however, did not hesitate, but pulled us to the right, I assumed, as the best route around this watery obstacle.
When we came in sight of a lovely cove, Dunfallon was the first to spot her. Noralei stood on the sandy shore, talking to some of the silvery beings crisscrossing the waves of the little bay.
The three of us raced to her side, and she happily introduced us to her new friends. A herd of water horses.
