The noises increased over night. We could hear something moving about sniffing and snarling. But inside the barrier we felt safe and secure.
Nothing was about when we emerged in the daylight and got underway. But Rumble was certain we were being watched.
Dunfallon got the bright idea of begging the cloak of invisibility from Rumble and remaining behind us to spy on whatever may be about. I reluctantly agreed and a ruckus erupted but a few moments after we left him.
We came about, weapons at the ready.
The pixie had a huge orange cat at bay. (It was easily bigger than all of us put together). Blood was flowing from a wound in its flank and it was screaming uncontrollably. Noralei ran forward and dispatched it with a single slash of her sword.
There were no sounds following us the rest of the day.
