I released a thankful pixie from the library today. Rumble and I sent Dunfallon to check out two locations that I uncovered in my research. They are known, not only for mines that produce crystals, but they also have the artisans with the abilities to fashion enchanted vessels from them. 

Rumble supplied him with a map with landmarks that will guide him to his destinations. Before departing Merlin took him aside and coached him on what to look for – and what to say and what to do when interacting with the artisans in particular. 

A happy pixie was soon winging forth on his golden eagle.

Rumble and I returned to our work in the mines of the library. We changed our focus from those places in or near the land with no name, to other possibilities more distant. 

I was interrupted in my task once again by a note on the scroll from the High Fairy. Noralei is now ready to return. 

I informed Merlin, and before I cracked open the next book she was with us in Merlin’s castle.

I caught up with Dunfallon this morning outside the home of the High Fairy. We had all been summoned. He informed me that he had come to the conclusion to leave his mountain goat behind. He thought it best all around, arguing that it would be horrible to lose her to some hungry human and besides he could call upon his golden eagle for transport. 

I thought for sure the High Fairy would have made that very decision, but I was glad the pixie had made it himself. 

Rumble was already inside and he had a map for each of us. Each drawn by himself. He says he composed it from all the best charts available. 

I remember thinking that it wouldn’t be long before we were off to the human lands. A sentiment that the High Fairy spoke out loud, but he added that he felt that our team was not yet complete.

In the stillness after his pronouncement I knew whom I must see tomorrow.

Dunfallon’s turn today to try out his new skills in front of an audience. The owl invited us up into the tallest tower of the castle. And to our amazement and amusement the pixie trotted out on the back of a golden eagle. The two made a curtsy before turning and hopping up to the window sill. 

And from that lofty perch launched themselves into space. After five or six rapid circuits of the tower and a screaming dive down to the castle courtyard, the flying duo presented themselves before us. 

Dunfallon is one proud pixie.  But he did dismount and give praise to his powerful companion. 

I wondered what was next for his other mount – the doughty mountain goat.  As an answer to my unspoken question, Dunfallon ran to the goat and told him not to worry for he would not forsake him.

I learned from the pixie later that the eagle will only come when he calls him. And he held up a silver whistle on a chain about his neck and winked.
