We set up camp in the dark last night. It took us that long to reach the spot designated by Tomas.
It was a comfortable place in many respects. In fact we may have waited til sunup before rising if it had not been for Mei giving the alarm.
She rousted us all after waking from a dream in which drones were descending upon us. Her dream was reality.
Elijah calmed and held us in place. “Let them get a look at us,” he said.
When they ringed us, he raised his staff and they tumbled out of the sky.
With no sign of pursuit visible on the ground behind us, we broke camp and took to the trail again.
