We began the day in high hopes, for Dunfallon found a promising cavern entrance. It was somewhat of a climb to reach its level, but with a team effort we helped Gibley carry the hatchling there. The ground outside was littered with broken dragon training staffs and worn out bits of harnesses.
We had an incredible feeling that we had finally arrived.
But it came crashing down after a band of goblins materialized from out of the rock walls.
But not before Gibley had rushed forward to greet his uncle. The haughty goblin did not even acknowledge his nephew.
Gibley stammered his protest, mumbling something about his parents and holding up the hatchling for his approval. None of which moved our opponent.
Instead his uncle made it clear that he considered Gibley a traitor and as such is banned from their kingdom forever. And as he looked around at all of us we knew none of us were welcome either.
We departed as fast as we could.
We fairies and our pixie turned our attention to the distraught goblin. I told him he was welcome to come with us. And Noralei and Dunfallon volunteered to help him raise the hatchling.
