Lung parted from our little band this morning. He made one last attempt to persuade Mei to return with him. But she was adamant about remaining with us.
Lung accepted her decision at the last, and even offered to report that she had perished back at the glacier.
I, however, suggested he merely report that they had been separated and that he had no knowledge where she was.
I believe he understood the gist of my comment, and hope to trust in his discretion. Though I have a nagging doubt where Lung is concerned.
Mei spent the day with the Captain. He had a lot to share about Tomas.
I went out with our young friend for a long conversation.
