Merlin called for me this morning. When I joined him the High Fairy was with him, stationed at the window and gazing off into the distance.
I launched immediately into expressing my desire to learn more about the goblin dragon handlers. But before I got beyond the bare statement, the wizard nodded and said, “All in good time – but that is not why we have called for you.”
His excellency turned from the window at that point and gave his full attention to our discussion about the need to secure the Crack of Doom from the designs of our enemy. He made many astute observations based upon their meeting of yesterday with Noralei.
We were just finishing when Noralei herself came in to inform us that permission was granted for us to review the bell’s security in its secret location.
We are to make ready for the trip and depart tomorrow.
