The King had ordered Dulbbe to follow whomever had been in the tunnels behind the waterfall in their garden. "If it is the mysterious Borrower with the Dragon tablet, bring both to me at the castle. No, change that, whomever you find, bring to me. I have some questions that need to be answered," the King had ordered.
Hunter then sent out his messenger, Meen, the Pkysee, to summon Awena of the Sleeping Sisters for an audience at his castle. "Tell her to hurry!" he had told Meen as he sent her off on the mission.
The problem was that Awena was busy with the Dowager and her son, the Baron, trying to figure out what they could about the Borrower who had the Dragon tablet. Plus, who did Hunter think he was "summoning" her to show up. "Humpf!" she thought as she heard the message.
Meen found that the satchel she received from Awena slowed down her hopping and jumping, especially after she accidently ripped the bag hopping over a tree stump. But she also knew that the King was waiting for her return and did not seem to be in the best of moods. For once, she headed (mostly) straight back to the castle.
When Meen entered the King's waiting room with all the books and lessons she received from Awena for Ffion to start studying, Ffion walked out to hear the message from the Sleeping Sisters. Poor Meen was trying to hold on to all of the books, lessons & scrolls since the satchel had finally ripped all the way open, that some of the scrolls fell to the floor and started to unroll.
"Schooling! It was "summer" - who wanted to be doing schoolwork when there was fun to be had out in the Realm!" screamed Ffion in her mind. She watched to see what her father's reaction from the Sisters message would be. When he jumped up from his throne, a small smile escaped her lips... that was until she realized that the King was demanding Meen to find the Royal Tutor to begin her lessons. "Oh no. There goes summer!"
