A day of breakthroughs. Though it certainly did not start that way. Of the four of us, we three fairies were feeling depressed, even despondent. I admit we were homesick for Nonin-gal-dith. Something about this fishing village made us long for home. 

But Dunfallon rallied us. He opened with a joke and followed that with one of his stories – about a prank he played on a bully. (Though he did not say so, I suspect it is a tale from his own experience).

After that we agreed to join him as he continued to explore the perimeter of the enchanted barrier. 

At the point when we were about to finish the last section, I received a message from the High Fairy. He was excited to learn we had landed and had some advice from the Dromadil pixies about skirting the barrier. It seems a way in was always found near a stream or some similar water course. 

The High Fairy ended with a word of warning – once through, our pixie would need to seek out any nearby black plants – and destroy them to bring down the barrier. 

With this news, it was more important than ever that we hear from Nora. 

We hurried back to the harbor, and there found Nora waiting for us – with news about not one but two streams that empty into the bay.

I am now a long, long way from Nonin-gal-dith and I am getting homesick. My pendant has remained warm, so I was confident I was on the right path. 

But I have had two different thoughts battling for my attention today. And I fear again they are slowing me down. 

I know there are no other fairy habitations out this way, but I have seen signs that pixies are settled near some breaks in the woods where meadows flourish. 

Thankfully my path led me away from them. So I am sure Rumble is avoiding them too.  

The other concern surfaced when my path crossed one that clearly was made by humans. 

A worse problem than pixies.
