It was the incessant cawing of a single crow that woke the companions out of their deep slumber. "Mustn't stay here no, too dangerous for
good creatures like yourself." Night Star looked up, shading her eyes from the bright sunlight filtering through the tree. The black crow perched on
the lowest branch nearest to them, pruning and fluffing her soft feathers. "I know you, we've met before haven't we?" asked Night. "Yessss! Leela is
my name. Leeeelaaa. "And what do you know about these parts? Why is their danger?" Leela squawked. "The cystal ball did not reveal that to you did it?
Pesky flew up to the bird and sat beside her. "Don't be so cryptic, just tell us what you know. Obviously you know something!" Jojopo decided to try
to get the bird to talk himself. "If you are so concerned about our welfare, why don't you just tell us what's going on and be done with it? We've no
need for games here." Leela cocked her head to the side staring with liquid black beady eyes. "you don't want to be here by nightfall. There is time.
Go. Go now!" Without another word, the bird took to the air causing a few leafs to fall from the branch. The pixie flew higher to get a better view of
what lay ahead. "Way in the distance is a...castle of some sort. At least it looks like one from here."
Hugo and Wolf were angry. They had no real answers and didn't know what to expect. Storm had left them earlier as there wasn't enough room for him to
walk through the dense forest, but they all knew he would be watching from wherever he was. The elf held the aqua crystal ball gently in her hands
trying to see if it would reveal its secrets. "Do you see anything Night?" asked Garren. At first a swirling purple mist clouded the glass and slowly
cleared away. She could see the darkness of night and the castle that Pesky spoke of. She could make out dark shadows, figures moving about." "I see
the castle Pesky. There are people living there. Let us make our way and see. Perhaps they will allow us to stay the night and we'll find out more
"Pesky made her way down the tree and landed on Night's shoulder. "Did the crow not tell us to get away from here? How do you know that castle isn't
what Leela was speaking about when she mentioned danger? Have you no sense elf? Hugo stretched his wings. "If there is danger in these parts and Night
saw people in that castle, they too will need to be warned. If we discover what the danger is, we can help." "I agree." replied Night. They all nodded
their heads in agreement except for Pesky who stood with hands on hips and a scowl on her face.
