We have not sighted any of the ambulatory plants. So we decided to take advantage of that and move on. Rumble had the thought that with the collapse of the barrier they may be adversely effected.
I for one certainly hope that is the case.
We came to a point along the stream where we decided to depart from it. Which also meant saying goodbye to Nora. (He was very disappointed and that more than anything saddened us too). We promised one another undying affection. And I felt that we would be encountering one another before long.
Noralei consulted her compass and was puzzled by the movement of the red ashes. Instead of pointing in just one direction, now there were two.
It was easy to surmise that the eastern group was due to the black plants, especially the walking ones, in that direction. That left the other as highly likely to be were our enemy is headquartered.
I wrote the High Fairy to fill him in on our discoveries and to ask for the latest from him.
We are all pleased with our progress at last.
