I had a dream about our pixie last night. He was playing a game of hide and seek with us in this his favorite hollow. The image of his smiling face persisted even upon waking.
Each of us had a similar dream, though Noralei’s had a distinctive difference. She was observing Rumble and me – observing Dunfallon. But she saw what neither of us did – watching everyone was the flitting apparition of the Will’o’the Wisp.
This formed our topic of discussion as we continued on our way to Nailbiter’s burrow.
Nothing seemed out of the ordinary. Bird song echoed from among the branches of the trees and shrubs. Small animals scurried away at our advance.
We encountered two pixies also traveling the path to Nailbiter’s burrow. We were the only ‘news’ to them for these parts.
Arriving at the burrow we were given a royal reception. There beside Nailbiter, the High Fairy was also waiting for us.
His excellency told us that he found no signs of Dunfallon between here and Nonin-gal-dith.
Nailbiter, however informed us that strange lights have been sighted in the sky above Willie’s swamp.
