Before I could put forth my concern about the dragons to Merlin when he came out of his chambers this morning, he announced that he was taking me with him to Gilgorgon’s mountain.
This did not completely take me by surprise. I believe all of us knew or at least hoped we would be going to the aid of our friend and ally Gilgorgon some time soon.
The wizard requested that I ask Rumble to accompany us, and to leave Noralei to oversee both Dunfallon and Gibley in their dragon training tasks.
I took that opportunity to query him about the shackling issue. He thought a moment and then said that he would handle it another way.
Before Rumble and I departed with him, he caused the two dragons to be moved to the larger courtyard and locked down the area above it with a made to order spell.
