This time Elijah wasn’t the only one to notice. When the young woman overtook and passed us by on the road, I saw that she bore a mark, and I could tell it was very much like that of Jezer. Phony.
For her part when she looked back at us, shock registered in her face. And I knew that her surprise was due to the absence of the mark on either of us.
She stopped in her tracks, not knowing what to do.
Elijah rushed forward to reassure her. The fact that she was alone on the road, I believe, made her even more apprehensive, so I held back.
Elijah was able to calm her.
It was a propitious meeting.
