There was much commotion on the other side of the Gate and I
was kept out even though I can usually pass to and from as I desire.
This has been going on for weeks.
The Red Queen was very specific with her instruction (not delivered
directly to me, of course) that I was not to be granted passage
through the Gate...still, I could not be watched all the time and
in my many years as GateKeeper I have learned some tricks.
It was the incessant keening of the Dryads that finally forced me
to sneak over...what I encountered then was almost beyond
belief...there, in the middle of a normally hidden glade, I saw a
huge egg suspended, unbelievably, in a glowing atmosphere...the
egg was translucent and throbbing with various shades of gold and
purple...I could make out the right side of a face
with one eye open, deep within the egg.
I certainly could ask no one what it was I was seeing and could
only surmise that this, finally, was Samhain's Egg...growing to
hatch, to break open when Samhain came to bear.
