We bid Tomas godspeed. He is on his way south to investigate the area towards the high mountains.
We traveled last night, and will wait here one full day, travel another night and wait again. That way it should be easier for Tomas to catch up.
Tomas plans to travel night and day, with only the minimum of rest time, for the same object.
We only had the stars and a brief appearance by the moon to light our way. No flitting lights troubled the sky.
I wanted to accompany Tomas. I truly did. But Elijah reminded me of our commitment never to part ways again.
We shall rest through the day, and pray for Tomas through the night tomorrow,
