At the moment, Isabella was contemplating something that might make her father’s life a lot easier. She had just been visited by a fairy. She was trying to recall the instructions she was given. ‘Follow the lake past forest and cave…’ no, ‘follow the lake through forest to cave…’. Okay, start at the lake. The lake she knew. There was something about a forest and a cave. Then, meeting a fellow traveler. Something about continuing south until the leaves have no color. And then great treasure. She should leave at once. She could work on the finer details on the road. First thing’s first though, she would have to break the news to father.
