I like how even Elrond, Gandalf, and Glorfindel are flabbergasted by the children's story. I think the rock Kaylee picked up will be important for sending them home. I liked the parallel discussions between Elrond and Gandalf and the kids both coming to the conclusion that the kids were sent there by Eru/God for a purpose. I look forward to seeing what that purpose will be as the story progresses.

Author Reply: The wise of Middle-earth are encountering something unheard of to them. And yet, you will notice that they are wise enough not to doubt them either.

Eru/God never does anything without a purpose! Oh, and yes, the rock will be important, though you will have to wait a while to find out how.

Author Reply: BTW, I forgot to say, this is DF. I am sure that KG will also reply.

Author Reply: Yes, here I am! Yes, they definitely are flabbergasted by what the children have told them, and it didn't take long for the children to realize that God has sent them there, and to do a job for Him. As for the rock Kaylee brought with her, it'll be definitely important, but as Dreamflower said, you'll have to wait and see in what way! K.G.

This gets more and more exciting as I go along. I can't remember if I'd read this chapter yet, it's been a while since I lost track (again, sorry for that!) But reading this chapter felt like the first time. I love the references to the Wizard of Oz; I always wanted to be Dorothy when I was Kaylee's age! (But look, now I'm Kaylee! *giggles* And my middle name is Anne, too!)

Anyway, it's a good thing they know God's watching out for them. It's interesting Gandalf realizes that Eru Iluvatar is the same being they know as God, and I wonder what he'll be thinking of that, or who he'll tell - Elrond, Glorfindel and Arwen, I'm guessing. Or at least Elrond for sure.

Author Reply: LOL! Most interesting. You should find this story most interesting, then! =)

Yes, it is good that the McCloud children know that, and that Gandalf knows what he does about them.

They need the support of one another. And trust Gandalf to be watching over the children!

Author Reply: Yeah! And the children are most fortunate to be in this together.
