When Noralei left Rayjil in the stables last night, the dragon refused to stay in any of the pens except that of Conjil’s. All the other stalls she thought were empty. 

When she returned this morning to check on her, Rayjil was missing. Noralei hastened back to tell us. 

Our biggest fear was that Rayjil turned transparent and transported to the other side. We assumed that Glossom and Gibley were there with their dragons and other members of their clan. So we thought Rayjil could have followed their scent.

However, we decided to fully search the goblins’ vast stable first. 

Dunfallon, attracted by noises back in the depths of the stable, found her – and two hatchling dragons – all at play. And all hungry. 

Noralei brought some fire plants back to that pen and filled their trough. And mixed in some of the dragon shell. 

Each of us had the same thought – why had not the goblins left enough provisions for the two baby dragons if they were to be gone for any length of time?

Noralei and Dunfallon wanted to pass over to the other side immediately. But I cautioned them and suggested we provide for the babies first for a sufficient amount of time as we could not take them with us either. 

It took the rest of the day to find everything we needed. So, we shall depart first thing tomorrow.

The news is scanty. The High Fairy says there is nothing direct from Gilgorgon. His whole mountain is locked down to the outside. Everything is second hand through the Dromadil pixies, who learn it from the goblins. 

It has me very worried. What could Gilgorgon be thinking? Does he not know that we are for him? And would swiftly come to his aid?

Merlin and the High Fairy locked themselves away in the wizard’s study to consult the seer’s stone – after advising us to keep about our tasks with the hatchlings. 

I found it very difficult to hold my focus. And I believe it was the same for each of us, save Gibley, who has never met our friend. To be sure the goblin has encountered Artoxon – and though he has not expressed an opinion about him outloud I am reasonably certain that his mirrors ours. 

Eventually we became engrossed in our work. Dunfallon put Cluyjil through the motions of flying as he and Rumble waved the staff with the hatchling attached to it. Such movement gives Cluyjil the sense of what it feels like to flap his wings. 

Rayjil was still content with simple things – jumping on and off the staff, and turning invisible for longer periods of time. 

Meeting together at day’s end we were all thinking about the same thing – is it time yet to introduce our charges to one another?

I had much to ponder today after my talk with Merlin last night. For the time being the wizard thinks we can back off on our mission to discover our unknown enemy. The High Fairy (currently in Nonin-gal-dith) concurs in that assessment. With the failure of the nemesis’s gambit launched through the dark elves and his dual losses of the dragon eggs, we no longer have any leads to follow up anyway. 

As for the state of affairs between the two dwarf kingdoms, we are not only waiting for Gilgorgon to respond to Artoxon’s demands, but also waiting to learn whether or not those demands have altered since the disastrous events in Artoxon’s capital. 

Thus it appears that Rumble, Noralei, and I will be kept busy helping Dunfallon and Gibley raise two dragon hatchlings.
