The nemesis fairy is all smiles and friendliness, yet he still refuses to let me out. He tells me my friends have dispatched his enemy and ours, but adds that the danger has not passed.
I have begun to believe him if only because my pendants are not raising an alarm. But leaving it in such a state only gives rein to my imagination and fills my head with all sorts of alternate explanations – good and bad. The worst of which being that he is somehow deceiving me and keeping me powerless while he tortures my friends for control of the dragons.
And then came the horrible thought that perhaps my friends have destroyed the one thing that kept in check the true enemy of our world.
Oh, I am the most miserable fairy on the face of this or any world.
