I arrived early in the council chambers and placed my note of apology at the Rumbletwist’s place in the circle. He was not yet there. The High Fairy, though, was. And he nodded his approval from across the chamber.
Soon after we were all gathered together, except Rumble.
The High Fairy motioned to begin the meeting and was interrupted by the captain of the guard.
In the excitement that followed I was thoroughly confused. It seems everyone knew what was happening except me.
As our leader later explained it, the captain of the guard had been sent to arrest Rumble, only to discover that he had fled.
And I am charged with his pursuit.
