We finally arrived at Nailbiter’s village. His pixies welcomed us wholeheartedly. And they reported that the measures we helped put in place a moon ago proved crucial for their defense. 

I was indecisive at first what to tell them about the treachery of the Wisp, but since he was well known hereabouts I thought it best to explain everything. I, however, limited it to Nailbiter and his council. 

A grim silence was the result. They agreed we should keep him imprisoned. And promised to send guards with us, at least to the Faerie border, to the end we not be mistaken for aggressors or kidnappers. 

That evening Dunfallon was sought out and celebrated in the great burrow hall. Both Rumble and I were amused by his accounting of his adventures thus far.

When we left the hillocks a black bird was waiting for us where we planned to enter the woodlands. I spotted it first and at my alarm, Dunfallon charged ahead on his goat. 

I thought fleetingly of sending an arrow at the bird, but almost before the thought was born, the raven cawwed once, and winged off. 

In response Rumble spread his wings and took up the pursuit. Fearful of a trap, I called him back. 

We conferred and decided that in future we would only act and move in concert whenever that ominous bird appeared. 

Once in the woods, Dunfallon took the lead and told us we should be in Nailbiter’s village sometime tomorrow.

The pixies have finally given me back my things. Having chased off the human, the rest joined the ones who seized me. 

They carried me off to their great hall deep under the mound. They proved themselves friendly to me. Mainly because they believe I had taken their side against the human. Some of the younger ones as a prank ran off with my things when I had briefly put them aside. 

It took a while for the elders to track them all down and restore them to me. 

In the meantime the leader Nailbiter showed me every courtesy. They even offered their help in capturing Rumbletwist. 

I must weigh my next steps carefully.
