The tanker truck was still a good way off when we saw it halt at nightfall.
We settled in ourselves, and then arose early to cut across the land to meet it lower down.

We were watching from our perch when it rumbled by. At the sight of the driver, Elijah jumped to his feet and seemingly flew down the hillside.
There behind the wheel in the cab of the tanker truck was the former madman from the great city, Elam.
