I feel a great weight lifted off of my shoulders with our arrival here at Merlin’s castle. I hope never to be embroiled in human affairs again. Thankfully Merlin has not bundled us off to our next mission. Surprisingly he has not yet broached the topic to us. So I am thinking it must not be as crucial as he had led us to believe. 

For now he is allowing us to take our ease. And I think Dunfallon, for one, welcomes the opportunity to forget his latest escapade. 

I asked Rumble to meet with the pixie to renew their friendship and to help him get past his guilt. And perhaps he can help with his desire to make up for the humans’ loss of those lambs. 

Noralei collected me and took me on a tour of the workshop in which she constructed that small lantern and the iron proof barrier. 

I suspected she was trying to help me recover too from our latest hardship. 

I welcomed the diversion.

I am so angry with Dunfallon I could spit feathers. 

It was all a prank of course. I’ve been at it all day trying to explain that to Cawthrup and his people. Matters have been complicated by the fact that six of their lambs drowned after falling into a stream. That fact has hit Dunfallon very hard. He has such a soft spot for all creatures. He has tried to make amends and has appeared before the humans promising reparations. What exactly he plans to give them as reparations I have no clue. And neither I fear does he. 

Finally I just expressed our regret over the whole incident. And then moved on to what needed to be said today. I told them what the High Fairy had revealed to me, and I urged them all to return to their land and homes. Further I said that they were free to choose but let it be known that dire consequences await all who remain. 

With that I gathered Rumble and Dunfallon and Noralei to me and held up Merlin’s pendant and summoned the wizard. 

And true to his word he came and spirited us away.
