We all saw them last night. Lights in the sky over the high mountains.
I was making my way out to the meditation cave when I spotted them. I ran to tell the Captain, but he had already noticed them and stood there gaping.
Before we could go out to notify Elijah, he was by our side.
Our immediate concern was for Tomas. The Captain wanted to set out and retrace our steps.
Elijah dismissed his wishes out of hand and refused to let him depart. We did reach a compromise instead. We agreed to wait another day in our present position.
We won’t decide until then our course of action, whether or not to allow the Captain to return.
