It wasn't long before Hungry and the bees at the honey hive were sitting down to eat. Rave didn't even have to work very hard to get the bees to share when they saw the Wish Dragon. Immediately the bees had decided that they were honored to have a Dragon as a dinner guest (With Hungry's small wings for the size of his body being bee-like made the bees feel like they were related)... So, Rave just slipped away totally unnoticed. He knew the Gooblin King would be waiting for his report in his chamber. He was so excited to finally be able to tell him that he had found the Wish Dragon.
"Your honey is better than anything I have eaten at the Sugar Plum Bakery," said Hungry to the queen of the bee hive. Remembering his manners (one of those classes that Efem had given him) he attempted to bow and added, "your majesty" as he gave a slight bow to the little royal queen. As Rave watched he was again surprised by the Wish Dragon. "If I live to be a thousand, this will be one sight I will probably never see again. Who knew a honey bee could blush," he thought. Glancing at the Gooblin King though made Rave realize that Hir'aeth saw only one thing before him - The Wish Dragon.
It was then that Hungry noticed Rave and the Gooblin King watching him. Making sure that he did not have any honey dripping from his chin (a quick swipe with his tongue took care of that), Hungry walked over.
"It is a book or scroll that one of your ancestors wrote to leave us a message," replied Rave before the Gooblin King could answer.
"Oh, I have seen some of those in my classes," answered Hungry. "I am being taught how to read but haven't quit mastered it yet."
