The sudden appearance of Dunfallon caught everyone off guard. And because he brought Cluyjil with him (or vice versa) a small furor was raised among the fairy troops guarding the entrance.
The Caretaker was beside himself at what he considered to be an effrontery to his authority. Thankfully the High Fairy and Merlin soothed his jangled nerves – until the worthy commandant asked the obvious question as to how a pixie and a dragon had found the hidden repository for the Crack of Doom.
Back at Nonin-gal-dith, Dunfallon and his team (which included Rumble and Gibley) had learned that dragons have an innate sense as to the location of this most dangerous of bells.
It was in that moment that I understood why it was that our enemy had set his sights on obtaining a dragon through his various agents.
Now more than ever it falls to us to keep that from happening.
