Hera had settled down now, and seemed to be trying to pretend nothing had happened. Dafydd smiled, patted Ilwion on the head, and looked up at the new arrivals. "So: Des, Dawn, and Dives, and I'm Dafydd; goodness, what a team. I should bring Daphne over, except I think she's busy trying to get her balloon to lay eggs."
