The decisions have been made. We parted. The Purser took his family up to the escarpment eastward. Elijah and I took the harder climb to the north, our immediate destination the riverfront town.
We are all comfortable with our decisions. Each party discerns the hand of the One upon them. Before parting, Elijah took the Purser aside. In particular he entrusted to him a message that is to be passed on to any followers of Hamashiach they may come across.
Meridian had come and gone by the time we bid each other God speed. We were atop the escarpment with the city still in view when night fell.
Far below a large party exited the city.
Are they in pursuit?
