A momentous day. Advance motorized units of the army came roaring into town at dawn. The townspeople, those who had not fled, stayed inside. Only a few were brave enough to venture out.
Seeing that these soldiers were non-threatening, more denizens, their curiosity whetted, joined those already out gawking.
The main body of the army came through at noon, and for the next six hours filled up the plain towards the mountains.
For most of that time, Tomas and I were out and about, looking for the Captain. Elijah wanted us to stop him from arranging our truck transport. His only explanation being that we cannot yet leave the area.
We were successful in both objects.
Now to wait.
