Although Shale can no longer sense the magic directly, when he opens his senses he can feel exactly where the inimincal intelligence is glowering at him from - and that will certainly be helpful!

Lilli tries to help Shale, using Gil's advice and help. She pictures her family in her mind in happier times and it seems to be working until the memory of the Fomorians that took her family away intrudes...
Lilli sat by the lake’s edge dangling her feet in the water, enjoying the last of setting sun’s warmth on her face. She sensed movement nearby her and looked up in to the smiling face of her father.
“I’m so very proud of you Lilli. You did everything right today. Uncle Seebo says that you surpassed any of his previous students at that level. You’ve formally finished your apprenticeship, Uncle Seebo’s gone off to get drink a bottle and celebrate and now you need to think about what you’re going to do next.”
Lilli stood up, smiled and embraced her father.
“I think I’ll stay here for a bit first. Plenty of time to see this world or the next; everybody else is just going to have wait for me to grace them with my presence at the moment. Speaking of Master Seebo’s bottles…”
She pulled on the nearby line and the bottle swung up out of the lake’s depths where it had been cooling for the last hour.
“Hey Presto! Just like magic!"
Dhenni clambered up on Lilli’s back.
“By the Stars, I think you’re getting too big for this, little brother.”
“Take me around the big tree again! Twice! Thrice!”
“Just the once I think, or else I think you’ll be carrying me home. How many of those scones did you eat at Aunt May’s? I feel like I’m carrying a load of those dwarven bricks Father brought home last week.”
“What, like this one?”
Dhenni waved the half stone brick in front of her face and giggled until he suddenly hit the grass, whereupon he laughed all the harder.
She sat in the cramped confines of the passage, barely daring to breathe. The sounds of the screaming were still ringing in her ears along with her father’s warning,“Run Lilli, run! Stay in the cubby-hole until they’ve gone! Stay!”
There she stayed, all through the crashing and smashing of the family home as the tree that the house was built into was cracked open by the giant purple hands. Even when the secret door sheltering her shuddered as something was thrown against it, Lilli still stayed quieter than the dormouse that she was sharing her refuge with.
“No; that won't do girl," Lilli says to herself. “You're playing into the creature's hands (or claws or whatever it has)."
The young girl twirled in the sky-blue dress before her feminine audience, who made appreciative "oohs" and "ahs" of approval.
“Thank-you, Mother," said Lilli, hugging her mother's waist. “I love the flying bird motif, but I love you more."
"I knew you'd like it; birds were always your favourite. I love you too Lilli, dear."
“Can't wait to see Cousin Cally's face go green with envy, though," Lilli said, winking up at her.
Her mother returned the embrace and kissed Lilli's forehead. "Truth is, I can't wait either," and the others in the room laughed.

Karma still paranoid that the maze was built for a purpose see's that one of the support beams is weakened not sure if it's deliberate or not he rushes to support it managing with his less than strong body to stop it calapsing.
