After their long meeting with Merlin, Dunfallon, Gibley, and Herblas emerged confident that the happy accident with the stones from the dwarfish mines has been beneficial in every way. The wizard is certain that their addition will place the assault team in a better position when confronting the Dark One. For they shall not only be counting upon the single gem. 

That decided, Merlin announced the time had come to pair the beacon stone with one of the dragons. 

Noralei and Rumble had completed the chain portion of the necklace and were ready to affix the stone to the setting. This time the dragons were kept sequestered in their pens. And held there until the necklace was completed in toto. 

Then, we all watched as Dunfallon led Rayjil into the courtyard where Noralei and Rumble presented the necklace before her. The stone and necklace remained motionless. 

I was astonished that the beacon stone had not chosen her. 

The pixie led Rayjil away and Gibley brought Conjil in. And again the necklace just lay there prone. 

My cry of dismay rose with the others in the courtyard. 

How would we save our world now?

Day One Thousand One Hundred Thirty Four #DiaryoftheEndoftheWorld

The struggle to our south has dropped completely from our view, instead we can see rank upon rank upon rank of the army of world government massing behind their defenses at the mouth of the valley below.

Reuben expressed to us his dismay at the sight of this vast array of power and might. I feared that this feeling would sink him into a kind of paralysis.

That’s when Elijah took him aside and talked to him. By their gestures and the look on Reuben’s face afterwards, I knew that my old friend had introduced him to the angel in whose shadow we move.

The change in Reuben was complete. And I took the opportunity to counsel on other things.
