We did not want to move for fear that Rumble would miss us if he were to return. I noticed that Dunfallon’s eyes were reddening – perhaps tearing up over his concern for his friend, though more likely on account of his constant scanning for any sign him. (Dunfallon assumed Rumble would remove his invisibility cloak on approach).
Finally we decided we could no longer wait. In the past I had used the pendant to find Rumble, so I called on it again to lead us to our friend.
We were astonished when it led us back on the path upon which we came.
And there we found him hovering in the air. Clearly in a trance.
I was able to break the spell that entranced him.
But he awoke startled, not knowing us at first. And with no idea where he’d been or what had happened to him.
