After a fruitless afternoon and evening of trying to locate Rumble, I wrote a message at the bottom of the note to the High Fairy – before turning in.
There was no answer when I checked this morning. So I decided to wait for instructions.
My peace was upended when the sun was at its height – a message burned itself onto the page of the note.
He asked why I had stopped? Especially since he had given me the means to track Rumbletwist.
I realized at once that he had done something more to my pendant than shrinking it. And I learned that he also knew where I was and what I was doing.
I set out again immediately.
As I tested my pendant along the way I discovered that besides its change in color, it also grew warm to the touch as I chose among different pathways.
