Relief. Relief and peace filled our very beings with our first steps back into the hiding place.
Though we always carry peace with us, I do say I appreciated that these surroundings very much reinforced it. I could sense the stress falling off of me.
Soon we were surrounded by the well wishes of our brothers and sisters, led by Meesa and Quasimo.
Seeing our exhaustion they quickly prepared places for each of us. A good thing, for I could barely hold my head up.
A night of dreamless sleep seemed over in an instant.
We rose, gathered and took stock. Both Mei’s group and the Captain’s had made it safely from Babylon. Only Mawuli and Mr Kagi were absent.
