The Gnome King is angry. He sends his gnomes after them. Billina gets frightend ( hiding in Jack's Head, she cant see.)She proceeds to lay an egg. Jack tilts his head to see what it is and the egg rolls out. When it does it starts rolling down the stairs at the surging Gnomes. The Gnomes ee the egg and turn tail and run ( eggs are poisonous to Gnomes). Learning this Billina starts laying more. They blind the Gnome King with them and disarm him of his Magic Belt.
