My recent message to the High Fairy stirred things up mightily. It contained a strange request – from Merlin. The wizard asked me to use the pendant to summon him.
I did. And in the span of two wing beats he was there beside us.
He began by commending us for a job well done. Then went on to tell us that our allies were close to breaking through in mass.
To that end he said it was crucial that we prevent the enemy from activating his nearby troops.
We looked around our little circle in wonder. ‘How’ was the word that sprang from our lips.
Merlin laughed and said that it would be all his concern.
But Dunfallon spoke up and protested that he and Grimace had not yet found Geog.
This appeared to take Merlin by surprise – but only briefly.
Then, he said to the duo, “you two shall come with me.”
