"...Maybe I was too hard on him..." Deirdre said, looking at the window. "Maybe, maybe not...wait a minute" Rohan said, walking towards the window and looking down, "Didn't Angus have a large cut in his wings last night? Then how could he just fly off?" "He flew off? You actually let him free?!" an old voice asked, and the two Mystic Knights turned around to find Cathbad. "Uhm...yes...is that a bad thing?" Rohan asked. "A very bad thing." the druid replied, "Now, I have to go to the forest to find a friend of mine. She's specialized in the Anthropomorphs and Creatures of the Dark. Care to join me?"

"Lóriodien? Lóriodien, can you hear me?" The three stood in the middle of the forest. A few beams of sunlight fell through the roof of leaves. Toadstools were growing everywhere, and the only sounds that could be heard were the calling of the druid, and the wind blowing past them. "Maybe she's not here..." Deirdre whispered while grabbing Rohan's arm. She was afraid of whatever might be hidden in the bushes. She was wondering if Omar was around, spying on them and going to tell the Centaurs that there were humans walking around in their forest. Only the thought of what might happen already made her desperate to leave the darkness.

All of the sudden, a bright light shone through the trees and lighted up the space around the source. A clear female's voice spoke... "Cathbad, druid of Kells, why this sudden visit? I haven't seen you for a long time." The light shone even brighter when the source came closer. Cathbad kneeled for the source. "I came here to ask for your help, Lóriodien. You see..." The source interrupted him. "The Gargoyle will be fine. I'll be his guide through these dark times. Though he has already begun..." The light faded, and a young elf was now completely visible. She had lavender-coloured wings that looked like the wings of a dragonfly and she was wearing a lightblue dress. The sight of her left Rohan breathless. She looked at the druid with her brown-green eyes, which were partly hidden behind a lock of her darkblonde hair. "Begun what?" the druid asked. "He has started to regain strength...and that might mean the end of Kells." "Is there any way we can stop him?" "There's no way you can stop an angry Gargoyle... unless you can put a very powerfull spell on him... but believe me, Cathbad, you don't even have half the power to do that." "And how about you? Can you stop him?" "I'm sorry, but I am on Angus' side. Even if I had the strength, I wouldn't even think of stopping him." "Why not?" Rohan interrupted, "Are you saying you don't even care?! You'll just let him destroy Kells?!" Lóriodien faded away a bit. "We Creatures of the Dark have been oppressed by you humans for decades. It is time that you'll go through the horror that we've been going through! Now leave this forest and meet your fate!" It got colder in the forest, and a flash of light blinded the three humans. Deirdre was the first one that started to run. Running out the forest. Running from what scared her. Running to her doom...
