After I had returned my diary to the bottom of the case, I checked the note from the High Fairy. There was a new message from him. Or rather instructions.
All it said was to bear to the right.
It made little sense at the time. Until the path this afternoon split in two.
After a brief hesitation I took the path to the right. It would not have been my choice on the face of it. It appeared to be much more difficult. Closed in and dark and foreboding.
I checked the note again. There was nothing new. But the recent instructions were now underlined.
