We had no sooner noticed that activity throughout the camp had increased, when Tomas brought word that orders were circulating for the army to advance.
At that juncture the Supreme Commander came to us with a request. He wanted us to assume a place with the advance units as they go through the next pass.
Or specifically Elijah, the Captain and myself. For he had decided to keep Tomas back in the rear of the army by his side.
(Obviously to keep us from wandering too far).
After a brief conference we acceded to his request.
I knew from my ongoing talks with Elijah that this fit exactly with our goals.
Even in the position that Tomas will find himself.
