It was a time of frantic activity. And I am so thankful for our time on the elvish ship, so long ago. For the lessons learned then were put to good use here. 

The fabric additions that Tinadell had woven onto the line were now unfurled like sails and spread in a fan like manner across the gap. The blowing wind even helped us. 

And utilizing the model put together by Merlin and Noralei, the Master Weaver directed us in securing it all around its perimeter. 

When we had effectually sealed off the rift, the rush of air out of the Land of Plenty ceased. And as a final touch Merlin took out a phial within which was a greenish liquid. He gave it to me with instructions to anoint the completed screen. 

I flew up on my own, picked a spot in the center and poured out the entire contents of the phial. Amazingly it covered the whole – adding the sheen of a rainbow across the face of it. This was a thrill in particular for Gibley (so we learned) for they were a representation of his clan’s design and colors. 

After admiring our handiwork our party drifted back to the nearby cavern where we discussed our next steps. And I wrote out a note on the scroll to the High Fairy.

We took turns going out on Cluyjil and Conjil – that is, Noralei, Gibley, and me. Merlin remained behind in the cavern shielded by the enclosure. He is using his seers stone to try to locate the strands that need to be rewoven together. He has given us something better than a description – he conjured up a vision of what it looks like. 

It is striking in color or actually colors. Very reminiscent of our views of the rainbow images we are familiar with in our experiences in this land. Only we have no idea of its size. Merlin says we must find both ends for they are the linch pins that Tinadell will require to seal up the gap. 

Each of us must have made five trips out – all with nothing to show for it, other than the locations of small bits of fabric flapping in the wind. Noralei and the wizard are putting together a model of where everything is that should prove very helpful come time for Tinadell to make his repairs. 

As I listen to the wind howling outside I wonder where Dunfallon and Rayjil are and how they are faring.

The evidence was plain for all to see. There was a hole at the end of this gorge from this world into ours. With each gush of wind the fabric around its edges flapped freely. 

Merlin called upon Dunfallon and gave him the assignment to return to Nonin-gal-dith and bring back Tinadell to affect the repair needed.  His instructions were simple – by flying through this aperture they will come out to the north of Dromadil. From there the wizard had confidence the pixie knew the way. 

Dunfallon chose Rayjil and together they exited the cavern out into the slipstream, and were immediately lost to our view. 

It took my breath away. 

Then, Merlin assembled us for some explanations. When Noralei and the others had defeated the Dark One an unfortunate event had occurred. In his fall the enemy snagged a single strand and pulled it from the fabric of this world, and at that instant things began to unravel between the worlds. 

In closing the wizard gave us all the assignment – to find that strand – before Dunfallon returns with Tinadell.
