Relationships in the homestead were becoming more and more strained. Atra and Jodoque were still angry at Kel for putting the baby at risk again. Kel was irritated by Atra's long silences, and the older woman's refusal to be drawn about the events in the castle, or why she loathed the Fire Elf so much.
Jodoque thought his latest attempt at building a mechanical dragon had been sabotaged, whereas Jake was angry at Jodoque for using parts from his bear trap without asking.
