Tuesday April 25th
After the Lilypods found the Sunrise Fish, many of them rested well that evening knowing what would be needed of them the next morning. But one child must always stay awake to keep the Godfrog awake as well.
Brinley the Lilypod was enjoying her evening, talking with Faire goers and keeping her dress from being eaten by passing deer when she visited Strifeclaw’s prison. There dark spirits spoke to her alone.
They asked her why the children were fighting so hard for a land that had taken them so mysteriously, almost kidnapping them all.
Before the taunting spirits departed they issued a dark threat, that their continued actions would provoke the Unweaver and they had other Guardians who could suffer as Strifeclaw had now.
‘I don’t want this land to dry up and die!’ Brinley said defiantly. The Spirits departed and Lilypod left in a fury. She shared the warning, but neither she or the other Lilypods were to be detered from their actions.
When the Lilypods, their allies, and caring Fairelanders arrived to help them, Dogstar cast his ritual on the Sunrise Fish.
And Dogstar shouted to all present,
“THIS STONE HOLDS A TRUTH! ITS SECRETS HELD WITHIN! ONLY YOU CAN CRACK THE STONE AND FREE THE HIDDEN STORY!”
“IT IS UP TO YOUR GOOD SPIRITS TO POWER THE WOADING I PLACE UPON THE STONE!”
“YOUR ENERGY, YOUR GIVING , YOUR BRILLIANTLY BRIGHT SPIRIT WILL ENERGISE THE STONE, AND WITH IT CRACK OPEN AND FREE WHATS HIDDEN WITHIN!”
IT IS UP TO YOU! I CAN DO NO MORE HERE
And he left us there to fill the stone with good will, charity, and cheer and the charity was great this day for 120,200 L was given by the end!
The great stone fish cracked and the spirit bearing a truth was freed! It told how the Pook had tricked the boy into being eaten by the fish and was lost inside trapped for all eternity.
Even now it will repeat its tale about how the Pook, disguised as the frog tricked the mother into being his servant and turned into a Prince, but the tale ended as the mother found the precious gem he had gone in search of.
The children believe they need to find that lost gem now in order to find the next peice of the story. Remembering their trapped guardian they rushed to see if the ritual had freed them as well.
Her prison had broken open, but the Guardian herself was nowhere to be found. Was she taken prisoner, or was she truly angry with the children? This would be questions for tomorrow, as well as the search for the Sunrise Gem that would take them beyond the borders of Mudrana to all the Fairelands!
