Our progress today has been tricky, requiring Rumble to constantly monitor the map and direct us away from those hot spots. We have learned that if we come into ‘its sight’ it pursues us until we drop from sight.
We may have to risk getting closer to one at the direction of the High Fairy.
Having read my latest review of our progress, he replied that these hot spots may be dragon fire plants, the seeds of which can be found in dragon droppings.
Dunfallon volunteered to investigate. And I gave him the go ahead to summon his eagle and observe from on high.
With trepidation the rest of us watched from hiding while he overflew the nearest patch.
My heart caught in my throat when the pixie suddenly dove on that raging fire – and stopped altogether when tendrils of flame snaked up after him.
Dunfallon easily avoided its reach and reported back to us.
There is definitely the shed skin of a dragon on that spot.
This I relayed on to the High Fairy.
