As the King requested, Scarlet took the first Nytemare to the stable to prepare it for the journey. “You are to deliver a message to the Dowager Griselda in the Realm of Wymsy. When you give her this message,” Scarlet continues as he attaches the King’s message to a special satchel on the horse's mane, “include this with the message also.”
As the Nytemare looked into Scarlet’s eyes, the farrier gave him a nod and said, “Yes, Hungry is safe here in the Shadows’ Realm. This young Dragon may be the answer to many wishes that the Realms might have need of in the near future." The Nytemare returned the nod to let Scarlet know that he too understood both the message and the importance of it.
After Scarlet checked each of the horse’s shoes, he walked it to the woods to start it on its way. “Be safe,” he whispered as the Nytemare left, knowing that each time one went to deliver a message, the world would change a little bit and a destiny would begin... for the King’s messages were never ordinary.
