Another day was dawning and we had not yet found a suitable place to pass the day. Until Elijah spotted a hovel some distance off the beaten path.
We made our way to it, down a culvert and up the other side. It was one room with earthen walls and floor – deserted, and for quite some time.
Elijah stood watch while I slept. However, he judged there was nothing to fear, so he did not waken me to stand a watch, but turned in himself.
I awoke in a panic to a new night. And then anger with my friend for not letting me cover my watch.
He finally calmed me with assurances that we had nothing to fear.
