We all gnew that revealing our Magical Vault to the humans was risky. We gnew it would reduce our protection against trolls. What we didn't realize was that, although we are more exposed to trolls now, we have humans helping us!
This week a blasted troll tried to break into the vault again. He was able to tear a small piece of the protection lock off it. But his attempt was THWARTED by a kind-hearted human, who appeared out of nowhere - startled the troll, who dropped the lock and bolted for the hills. The human picked up the broken piece of lock, brought it into the Cashmere Valley Bank lobby and the staff there was nice enough to get the piece back to us, the Gnomes of Cashmere!
Our experiment is working!! We love humans!!
