As we neared the desert crossroads we pushed ahead of the others with Jezer and Tomas. There Reuben patiently awaited our arrival.
He had just returned from a mission of mercy, for which he was seeking our approval, after the fact. And especially that of Jezer.
Jezer was aware of the particulars-Reuben was from the city along the road devastated by the explosion, and could understand why he would want to help.
When we assured him of our acceptance, he asked if he should refill the truck or not.
Elijah asked him to hold off. We would have to revisit our initial plans in light of the present circumstances.
I feel that everything will work out for the best.
