I was writing a message on my scroll to the High Fairy when I felt a presence behind me. I turned to see the face of Merlin smiling down on me. Before I could say a word he spoke to me.
“I have heard that you have been concerned for me and the dragon’s egg that you turned over to me. Well, here I be, hale and hearty. And rest assured our egg has been committed to the capable and trustworthy care of a mutual friend.”
Any thing further he would not say. But I was satisfied that it was safely hidden away.
Before we could continue our discussion, Dunfallon flew in on his eagle. He was about to give me the news about Merlin when he looked up and saw the wizard standing there. (The pixie mumbled something about having left Merlin back in Dromadil and how had he arrived before him).
Dunfallon shrugged his shoulders and commented, “Then you know all the news already.”
At that moment Geog the troll passed by outside one of the windows, and the pixie was gone in pursuit of his friend.
Merlin and I could only laugh.
