Chapter Fourteen - Part Four
Sylvia was not certain how the light boxes worked, but made it a point to find out. The unflickering light that filled her room was a lot better to read by. She was getting to the end of her book. All four elements had been discussed, and Sylvia had been practicing at separating each. The lady was feeling ready for a better manual, and considered one that would explain how to create light would be appropriate.
A knock came to the door. She still had on her petticoat, although the straps had been loosened. There was however no need to better conceal herself. She did not get up from her chair or speak thinking that it was only a servant. She was beginning to consider the movement of the castle staff to be more bothersome than helpful.
Focuses shift as our heroes and others start to consider other factors in the present dilemma.

Chapter Fourteen - Part 3
A man dressed in a nice brown suit with bright yellow cloth showing from his shirt and highlights in his pants was screaming threats to the fleeing bandits as he waved a sword and moved a shield. Oggelly saw no need to intrude on the man's personal space, so sat down at the foot of a tree. Sylvia noticed the minstrel's action, and stopped beside him.
The man finally realized that he was yelling to the wind, so stopped and looked around. "Who are you?"
Oggelly looked up at his sister, so she answered, "Travelers who were stupid enough to try and join your predicament."
An invitation is accepted that enables our heroes to start associating with another layer of their world.

Chapter Fourteen - Part 2
"You know, Sylvia, you need to learn how to sing."
Oggelly was working with the violin as they walked. He was simply trying to pull pure notes from the instrument as he plodded. It was bothersome as long screeches or wavering notes disrupted the peace of the wooded landscape. Feladin had left to stroll at a distant parallel to see if any fresh meat would be acquired for supper. Sylvia worked to keep up some chatter to ease the passing of time.
Our heroes get involved in a major situation as their new lives begin to find focus.

Chapter Thirteen - Part 3
Keir Thyyellinth was glad that things were finally returning to normal. His prayers were being answered with their usual efficiency. No answers came concerning She-Who-Sings-In-Trees' period of silence, but most people were simply glad to again have the goddess active. King Dureillorshin was concerned with the lack of an explanation however, and had summoned the castle priest to the royal chambers.
It was a very private chamber in the back sections of the monarch's private apartment that Keir Thyyellinth was escorted to. Only a few plush chairs were present along with a small writing desk set in one corner. One wall had a slightly large painting of a view of Castle Nochwellin, but the priest really had no idea what the monarch used this room for except for holding very private meetings. Aynaglitian was seated in a chair, but Thyyellinth considered the royal mage to only be a bother. Throulloss was also present which did concern the priest, although he liked it when witches sought divine guidance.
The story advances as schemes are developed and facts are discussed.

Chapter Thirteen - Part 2
The human awoke very refreshed. He sat up to see the half-elf missing, but Sylvia eating a pear. A smile passed between them.
"Okay, Feladin," said the elven lady, "how did you pick that name?"
Events turn as the story picks up and starts to head in a more serious direction.
