Elijah called for Tomas and tasked him to scout a new position for us on the route back to Sy’s old redoubt. He set up a camp with Mawuli a day’s march away.
It was late in the evening before Mr. Kagi, the Captain and Elijah and I caught up with them.
Yesterday the army of the East was stopped and held at bay by the elite forces of the world government. And it was clear today that Stan was sacrificing that group because the troops supporting them were being withdrawn.
They did so in perfect order and easily outpaced us.
The din from the opposing forces increased even as they dropped from view.
All was left to our imagination.
