We had the wind in our faces all day. Few words passed between us while we were moving. The couple instances when talk was necessary we stopped and huddled on the ground.
The first time we discussed how long to keep going today. We decided to press on while it was light.
We halted the second time when the village at the edge of the wilderness came into view. I wanted to alter course to avoid it and the nosy villager. But Elijah was eager for news, even if it were more than likely hopelessly out of date.
He just had a sense that something important awaited us.
Thus we forged on in silence, retracing our path to the village.
