Merlin also believed the charred carcass to be that of a Frost Fairy – but his pronouncement is mainly due to our description of its color before its immolation. However, more questions than before now crop up. Why only one? Are there more of his kind below? Are they aware of the damage they are doing? Do they have malevolent intentions?
The situation has me rethinking what the High Fairy may have meant in his last message. Was this all just a tragic accident?
My doubts grew stronger with the new dawn since there were no accompanying upheavals. Dunfallon was keen to go back down. We let him return on Conjil with Gibley and Navril.
I was not up to returning, so I remained with Merlin and the others.
I admit that I was not much company the rest of the day.
But I put my pen and this diary aside when I heard our friends shout:
“They are coming!”
