For the immediate future the hatchlings will be kept apart. According to Dunfallon’s reading (confirmed by Merlin) there are conflicting schools of thought regarding the nurturing of dragons – especially when they are of opposite sexes. The wizard has decided to err on the side of caution and thus avoid the prevalent pitfalls.
Merlin called us together to meet his hatchling, which he has dubbed Cluyjil. Both longer and bigger than Gibley’s. And easily more active.
The fact that Merlin had named his hatchling inspired the goblin to name his. And that is how she came to be known as Rayjil.
Since Dunfallon was so keen on applying himself to train dragons the wizard happily stepped aside and named the pixie as Cluyjil’s official trainer. And he will also assist Gibley with his charge.
Merlin took advantage of the new arrangement and pulled me aside for a walk up on the parapet.
