We have left behind the area affected by the earthquake and passed the village at the edge of the wilderness, which we note had been severely damaged. We should arrive above Sy’s old redoubt tomorrow.
I had to remind Tomas we needed to select a pathway just outside the village to obtain the heights above our destination. He had another in mind farther along, but agreed that this selection best met the intentions behind our plan.
I asked him if fatigue was overtaking him and if so suggested a halt.
He protested that we had not the time. That’s when Elijah broke in and ordered a halt.
We set him down and laid hands on him, praying for his strengthening.
