To: Prince Whelan of the Realm of Waters
From: High Prince Altair
Of course, I’ll retrieve the dagger for you, and thank you for reminding me that I should begin putting thought into gifts for both my mother and father for their Sun Days.
I have only just arrived at the Fire Elf Hold.
As I was preparing to leave the Blood Elves this morning, I was made aware that one of their younglings had gone missing in the night, and I immediately set aside everything so that I could help with the search.
Magala, Timai, and I climbed the paths high into the Obsidian Mountains in search of the little one and it was mid-day before we received a message from below that the youngling had been found in a completely different part of the mountains.
It seems they had gone out in the early morning when they were roused from sleep by the sounds of a flock of mountain sheep. They followed them up into the mountains and became lost.
The look on their parents’ faces when they returned was one of complete relief. I can only imagine what they went through while waiting for word!
Needless to say, with a late start, my initial meeting with King Heller and Queen Daimona here was rather rushed as they were in the midst of preparations for a feast tonight. I am told there will also be some demonstration by their soldiers.
Regardless of the delays, however, I hope that you shall see me entering the Watery Keep within two days.
Will I hear from you before then? It is silly, I suppose, but I hope I will.
Be well, Whelan,
