The Fairy Diary Day 328 #TFDbyRWOz2

So many things are happening that I am finding it difficult to keep it all in perspective. What things need our immediate attention – and what things are a distraction. 

We arrived at another junction. Dunfallon found one passage that led down to the Low-way – just before it reaches the gate into the dark elves’ stronghold. 

Willie has awakened again and he is throwing off more light than ever before. I do not know whether it is because he is rested or if we are now closer to the enemy than we have ever been. 

Noralei, out of curiosity, inspected another passage and returned, flying with all of her might. The passage led to one of the deepest mines she had ever seen – much deeper than the shaft back at the capital. But of the highest concern was the felt presence of that bane of fairies – iron ore. Going forward we will need to exercise extreme caution whichever path we choose. 

While Dunfallon and Noralei were gone, Rumble examined this junction chamber closely. It’s walls are an entwined network of tree and other plant roots – and they are dying. Without hesitation he set about tending to their needs. 

I am struggling for we may not have time for this. For I received a message from the High Fairy – although Gilgorgon and Merlin have pushed back the threat of the attacking dark elves, the enemy successfully carried away one of the dragon eggs. He wants us to be on the lookout for it. 

Day One Thousand One Hundred Seven #DiaryoftheEndoftheWorld

Tomas called early for Mei to take her to meet with Lung. Quasimo’s cousin asked to go along to support her and to perhaps bring another perspective to share with her former comrade.

Elijah and I went out at the same time and accompanied them into the megapolis where they dropped us off before continuing on. Tomas had arranged another audience with the Supreme Commander for us. First to thank him again for his kindnesses, but to also reveal to him the end of days rushing towards us all. And his specific end should he continue on his course.

He heard us out with respect, but it seemed to me, his attitude was quite unconcerned and unmoved by my descriptions.

Day One Thousand Twenty Five #DiaryoftheEndoftheWorld

I’ve gained some perspective since yesterday. I am still focused on finding Tomas and Jezer. The difference comes with the realization that timing is everything. And I am now surrendered to our agreed upon schedule in that matter.

It has freed me up in this sense – l look forward to what comes my way today, that will prepare me and make me the person I need to be.

So I sought what I could do here in our refuge, and conferred with Mei. She was short handed as Meesa was out running an errand with the Purser. So she welcomed my assistance, and my company. She was particularly keen to hear more about our recent adventures.

She misses Tomas too.
