Tinadell drilled Gibley on everything he could think of – what to expect or what he might encounter inside the tunnel. (Worms were a distinct possibility). He ended his instructions by cautioning him to be extra careful as some things may have changed.
The goblin grinned at his teacher and rubbing his chin said he should be able to eat his way through any rock problems.
Piqued by the mention of worms, Dunfallon sent off his goblin friend with the loan of his sword.
Our friend was gone from view when Noralei came back into Tinadell’s chamber from the outside. She was beside herself with excitement – for the wind had ceased blowing. Dunfallon ran out to check and returned with a confirmation of her news. The pixie predicted that we should be done with the repair in no time at all.
But both Merlin and Tinadell stood there stunned. Finally the wizard warned us that we just may have less time than we thought. And Tinadell took up the explanation that we must make haste to repair the rift before the wind commences again- this time from our world to this.
To which Merlin added that it held the potential to do great harm to our world – by sucking all its air into this one.
