Love it! Especially the scene with the music making creatures and Pip wondring where it comes from made a beautful, magic picture in my mind.
The name you now picked out for the river is great too!
Look forward to more! :)

Wow! If I counted right, we have now four different strands in this story: three search parties - and Pippin :) I'm impressed!

I really hope that the forest was not tricking Paladin and sent him in the wrong direction. After all the forest and its inhabitants should have sensed that he is another one with faerie blood in his veins. And they know where his son is.

So, the "cave search party" found Paladin's slingshot? LOL!!! Pippin and his father have indeed a lot in common ;-)

I'm looking forward to reading more.

Author Reply: Yes, there's a lot going on in this tale. You may be surprised in the next chapter as to what is going on with Paladin. I hope you enjoy reading it! Thank you so much for your comments and for continuing to follow my story!!

Ah--the Faerie blood tells in this story, showing up in Paladin and Peregrin both. And we see that Merry wasn't the first one to find that cave! Paladin's catapult! Hooray!

Soon the reunion will take place, and Pippin will return home to his home.

Author Reply: The Took Faerie blood has always fascinated me, and I'm having fun exploring it in this story! Thank you for the FB, Bonnie!

Oh my goodness, how suspenseful! The reunion is going to be so joyous when it finally comes.

“They want you to know how much they appreciate the music they have heard you make, Peregrin. You sing like no other they have heard before, with a voice that is sweet and clear, and that rings with joy and purity.”

That's lovely.

Author Reply: Yes, it should prove to be a very interesting reunion. Thank you so much for your kind words, they're much appreciated!

All so very well done, Cathleen!!

And you are very welcome :-)

I love the things that are happening with Pippin and the faerie folk. I really liked how you handled the business with the small cave. Good suspense and a wonderful surprise resolution!

Like father . . .

Author Reply: Heee! Like father, like son? Yep! I'm so glad you're still enjoying this Pearl, and thank you for letting me know!
