A series of commotions throughout the night along the quay made our time anything but restful. And about the first watch I noticed that Cluyjil seemed restless too. So I suggested that Dunfallon take the dragon up to stretch his wings. 

It was the circumstance awaited for by those watching us. As soon as the pixie and dragon disappeared into the darkness, a dozen elves rushed the ship. 

Evidently they were not aware of the soldier less weapons at my beck and call. Within the space of five wingbeats the swords lined the rails to both sides of me, stopping the assailants in their tracks. They ran away faster than they had come at us. 

A clatter arose from the other side of the ship as our spears there repelled an attempt to board from another vessel on that side. In their panic to get away that darkened vessel was intercepted by the return of Dunfallon on Cluyjil. The dragon set its sails ablaze. All the elves within jumped overboard. 

The rest of the night was uneventful but we did have a visit from the harbor master in the morning. To boil his demands down – he wants us gone. 

Merlin assured him that so we shall this very day. 

Thus, by the afternoon once we had moved the Crack of Doom to the wagon with the help of the dragons and since Noralei had completed the second cage, everything was prepared to depart. 

We had daylight enough to climb out of the valley around Corbelin to the heights beyond. And we were just settling in to our camp, when another band of elves joined us. 

It was led by Navril, sent by his king and our friend Nililitil to see us safely to Laguayil.

Nora fetched us off the quay this morning. He admitted to us that he did not return right away after dropping Dunfallon and Noralei at the first stream, but went on to the second just to look at it. When leaving there he was distracted by a school of fish that led him on a chase all over the bay. 

Our crossing was uneventful except for sightings of more schools of fish, and even larger aquatic creatures. Nora to his credit remained focused and soon had us on the shore beside Noralei. 

Dunfallon was already gone up the stream. He had found a way in yesterday, and this was his third trip beyond the barrier. 

He had located and destroyed several batches of the black plants. However, there had been no change in the barrier. 

We noticed a darkening of the air inside the barrier, and soon after Dunfallon came running out of the stream entrance. 

The pixie had been eradicating more patches of the black plants when larger black plants came walking up to challenge him. He said they were at least five times bigger than he was. 

I decided that we needed to move on to the second stream and concentrate our efforts there in hopes of avoiding this more virulent foe. 

But we would have to wait for our waterhorse to return.

Ragonil kept vigil with us all day as we watched the comings and goings on the bay. Most, however, were one masted fishing vessels, so definitely not in accord with my vision. There were fewer two masted ships, and none of them had a bow with a pair of eyes. 

We were about to give up for the day, when Dunfallon came running up with Rumble. The two dragged me out on the farthest end of the quay. There – tied up and apparently abandoned, lay a two-master – coated in filth. Dunfallon excitedly brushed aside the dirt on its bow to reveal an eye – looking back at us. 

We caught up with Ragonil, who was with Noralei at the quay along the shore. 

Together we went in search of the owner.
