It is always difficult to wait upon others when you want to launch out into action yourself. So I understood what my pixie friend was going through. Though I did keep an eye upon him all day, and gave him various tasks with which to occupy himself.
Noralei forged a ring and affixed the crystal into its setting. Then she pocketed it while rejoining Dunfallon in further testing for the other crystals. The largest one proved to have an interesting property. Each time Cluyjil breathed on it the light emanating from its interior lasted longer. And the more it was exposed to him the brighter it glowed. There was a definite accumulative effect.
I began to think that we may have chosen the wrong crystal to mount on the ring. But Noralei guessed my line of thought and chided me for it. She said if somehow we can charge it to last for days – that will free both dragons to send with the assault team to the other side.
At that thought I could not gainsay her.
