â€œBrÃ¹naidh an Easain! Itâ€™s time you started living up to your name,â€ Peallaidh exclaimed.
â€œWhat?â€ BrÃ¹naidh moaned. â€œYou mean waterfall? And where am I to be finding a waterfall in this cursed place?â€
â€œSure and werenâ€™t you just bursting water pipes this winter past?â€ Peallaidh chortled.
â€œThat would make a bonny waterfall.â€
â€œAye, and a wet basement besides, with gads of giant folks traipsing through our domain to try and fix and clean the mess,â€ BrÃ¹naidh pointed out. â€œNow why would I be wanting to do that? Besides,â€ he paced the small space between the wall and the outer brickwork, his feet barely touching the floor as he walked. â€œI think this family may be our key. The little lass needs watching.â€
â€œThe one they call Mary?â€ Peallaidh queried. â€œI canâ€™t see how she can help. Sheâ€™s but a hen, and a wee one at that.â€
â€œBut a whole lot bigger than you and I put together,â€ BrÃ¹naidh noted. â€œAfter all, weâ€™re Brownies and, magic or not, thereâ€™s only so much we can do.â€
