The news is scanty. The High Fairy says there is nothing direct from Gilgorgon. His whole mountain is locked down to the outside. Everything is second hand through the Dromadil pixies, who learn it from the goblins.
It has me very worried. What could Gilgorgon be thinking? Does he not know that we are for him? And would swiftly come to his aid?
Merlin and the High Fairy locked themselves away in the wizard’s study to consult the seer’s stone – after advising us to keep about our tasks with the hatchlings.
I found it very difficult to hold my focus. And I believe it was the same for each of us, save Gibley, who has never met our friend. To be sure the goblin has encountered Artoxon – and though he has not expressed an opinion about him outloud I am reasonably certain that his mirrors ours.
Eventually we became engrossed in our work. Dunfallon put Cluyjil through the motions of flying as he and Rumble waved the staff with the hatchling attached to it. Such movement gives Cluyjil the sense of what it feels like to flap his wings.
Rayjil was still content with simple things – jumping on and off the staff, and turning invisible for longer periods of time.
Meeting together at day’s end we were all thinking about the same thing – is it time yet to introduce our charges to one another?
