I puzzled over the meaning of Mei’s dream. Even after Elijah pronounced it sound advice. Right up until the time that Jordan led the last group out of the way station. It was then that understanding dawned in a rush.
Our small group will remain behind to cover the tracks of Jordan and his people, and hold off any pursuit.
I couldn’t say for sure from what quarter they will come at us. Yet I strongly suspected that we needed to watch the skies.
When silence fell over the camp after Jordan’s departure, Elijah put us to work dismantling all the rigid structures.
By day’s end we had progressed markedly in making the way station disappear. Mei proved very helpful.
