I'm more a sausage-roll kinda guy. (Proper sausage rolls mind, none of that Dutch gunk! Preferably mini sausage rolls too by the way.) Or (good) cheese and pineapple on a stick. Just putting it out there. For the next time.
ETA This should have been a reply to kaelci. Just in case. For the next time.

Continued from link to Gordi's post above.
Night looked to Sir Gordi and Pudge and nodded in approval. "Gentlemen, I am restless and need to keep moving. Be ever cautious and stay safe my friends." She hated goodbyes, even if they were temporary. She squeezed Gordi's shoulder lovingly then moved away as quickly as she could. Pesky pointed to the mountain. "Look, black smoke rising from high above! I guess that means we won't be going through the cave at the bottom? I know how you like to head straight into danger zones. You know, get right to the heart of things and all." The Elvan Warrior grinned. "Your ever curious little mind and fearlessness wouldn't have it any other way."
They ran under the cover of night and through the purple mist from the open field to the edge of the rocky mountain. At first, the climb was easy enough, but became more difficult as they ascended higher. Pesky flew as Night tried to grasp at the uneven surface, stones sliding as she climbed higher, losing her footing at times, but forging ahead.
When they reached an even surface to rest upon, Pesky asked Night if she could peer into the crystal globe to see if anything would be revealed to them. Night carefully opened the protective pouch and held the sphere in her palm when suddenly a mountain goat came out of seemingly nowhere. Startled, she jumped and lost her grip of the beautiful orb as it flew from her delicate hand and shattered ono the rocks below.
Pesky jumped up and down raving and ranting like a madwoman. "How could you be so clumsy? Now what are we going to do? It could have helped us in so many ways! It could have lead us straight to my Pixies Sisters! It could have..." The Elf gave her little friend 'the look', but still the pixie rambled on. "Oh will you please shut up! You will only draw attention to us you fool! And you just scared our dinner away."
The thunder was closer now and it began to rain, lightening streaked across the dark sky making the journey ahead more treacherous. Slowly Night closed her eyes and concentrated on Hugo the winged wildcat. "I need you my dear friend. Please hurry, we haven't much time."
