For the present the decision as to route was taken out of our hands. A mighty rushing noise came with the rising sun. As we tumbled about under the force of the following wind, there was absolutely nothing we could do to resist it.
When we came to rest, it seemed that we were at the center of a swirling mass of very angry hornets.
Our quick thinking Noralei within a couple wing beats had us surrounded in her protective barrier that proved as effective against the hornets as it is against iron weapons.
Only when the menace had passed on did we realize that we were well on way to the coast.
And my pendant then indicated that it was best to continue on that heading.
So we obediently took up that march. Still we were left wondering what had happened.
