The sudden change in the fastrunner’s tone caught Rinen off guard, the threehorn not expecting him or his companion to agree to his proposition at all. At first, he was even disappointed by it as he had partially wished that he should never again to meet those two for as long as he lived. His face turned into a frown but as he saw the look in Aquarius’ eyes, he realized that he had no real reason to complain. With any luck, he wouldn’t have to face the world again at least yet. And even better, those child killers would probably stay a good distance away from him. And if the bright-colored male was right, the search for green food wouldn’t have to be a long one and then, he’d get rid of those bastards forever. He took a brief sigh before raising his gaze at the other boy.

“That sounds good enough to me, if you stay far enough ahead of me, that is. Hopefully we’ll find some better lands soon as I doubt either us agrees to this willingly.” The threehorn said extremely dryly, seeing that the omnivores shared at least this sentiment with him. He then turned at Aquarius and let his eyebrows fall a bit as he spoke to the swimmer.

“Well, it seems they were at least somewhat willing to listen to reason. I’m ready to go if you are.” He said as he prepared mentally for what was to come. He wouldn’t forget the fastrunners’ antics or their reference to him as a “thing” easily and inside, the threehorn knew it wasn’t a given he could restrain himself in the days to come. But for his own and for Aquarius’ sake, Rinen hoped those two wouldn’t test his nerves anytime soon.

Aquarius couldn't have been more glad at the moment that everyone was willing to co-operate, they had all been fighting for to long and after Aquarius's initial run in with Rinen he was not in the mood for more battles. He gave a smile but as he took his foot step forward he almost fell, he gave a grimace as he looked at all the wounds he still had. Though he hated to admit it, he was hardly in a condition to walk at the moment with his legs bruised and scratched and his more serious wounds in his abdomen. However the thing that terrified Aquarius the most was the fact that some of his wounds was starting to show signs of infection.

Without some kind of treatment Aquarius would have a very hard time just staying alive. Most kinds his age didn't even know what the signs of an infection were but thanks to his two scars Aquarius not only knew the signs but had felt them to and he was not keen on reliving the pain but without his mother and father to treat him he didn't know what to do. "Well I can't walk well, I could ride Buko again?" He thought to himself. Normally he'd not want to show that he was a puny little Swimmer but this was an exception. Aquarius would not get far on his two feet and he knew it.


Once again Aquarius swallowed his reply. "Can I ride on one of you!?" he called out. "I can barely walk!" His question was for everyone but he was hoping that one of the Fast Runners would let him ride on their backs not out of spite for Rinen but simply cause they were much faster then Rinen and would have a better chance of escaping danger should it arise while Rinen was dare Aquarius think it "A bit to chubby to run fast" However if he was rejected by Buko and Wyoh he would make do riding on Rinen's back. 
What's the point in being mad if you don't do mad things now and again?

Buko sighed inwardly as he looked between the swimmer and the threehorn, hoping beyond hope that leaving the threehorn off to himself in the back of their little makeshift herd would not lead to a repeat of today's drama. And as the swimmer seemed to be a moderating influence...

"Perhaps, um, we can take turns carrying you?  That way no one gets a sore back."  He glanced back and forth at the still miffed Wyoh and the (from his point of view anyway) always antagonistic threehorn, "...but I don't mind doing it!" He added just in case.

He then leaned down to let the swimmer up, deciding to keep any misgivings to himself. I'm giving back rides to food and making truces to angry, boneheaded threehorns.  Dad, I bet you are watching this from somewhere and laughing.  Or calling me an idiot.  Probably both.

Lizzie had long since ceased to cry when the Night Circle had reached its highest position on the night sky but as expected she had not been able to find any rest nor had her crying and thinking improved her mood any. The only thing that made her feel a little less terrible than usual was the fact that she was no longer alone.

"It's my time to sleep now huh?"

Slowly, she trotted back to where the flyer was sleeping. She didn't even have to wake her up since the flyer jolted up from her slumber the moment she had arrived at their designated sleeping spot for the night, barren and unprotected as it was.

"It's been quiet... good night," was all Lizzie managed to say in a downcast voice before she curled herself up as best as possible on the hard ground while the flyer reached for a perch high up on the nearby, dead tree, hoping that sleep would overcome her sooner than later. Since she hadn't been sleeping at all the night before, and since she'd been walking a long distance, it was a lot easier than usual that night... Soon, only the slow rhythm of her chest rising and falling and the quiet sound of her breath escaping from her nostrils indicated that Lizzie was alive. She had fallen asleep.

Samara looked up to the sky, sleep was far from her mind right now as she pondered the last few days. Everything changed and not for the better. Who would remember her if she became weak and got eaten by a sharptooth, no one except for the longneck peacefully sleeping below her. She was not made for this, she realized, not made for the horrors of this world that was driven by primordial instincts. Why should she try, sure, if this mysterious place that she and the longneck were looking for actually existed, what then? What would become of her? She saw no future for herself besides the nightmare that they were in now.

The nearby creaking of dead trees brought her out of her depressive thoughts and adrenaline coursed through her body, her live-or-die instincts were still very much active, despite not wanting to continue. There was no sound except for the creaking of nearby dead trees and the soft, almost non-hearable sounds of the longneck sleeping below her.

It would not be bad, she realized, if this was the last thing I see, to experience. But she had made a promise, one that she wanted to keep, she was growing tired though, not of her lack of sleep, but of life. Yes, she thought while leaning back against the tree and growing a sad smile, this would not be so bad at all.

Drowsily, Lizzie opened her eyes. The first rays of the Bright Circle were tickling her nose, the cold of the night fast on the retreat to make way for the unbearable heat of the day. Lizzie couldn't say that she'd slept enough nor that she felt like she'd rested at all but she was used to this insomniac feeling. Frankly, this had been one of the better nights; at least she did get to sleep at night and not during the day when the heat made most attempts to sleep futile ones.

Reluctantly, she stretched her stiff extremities and got to her feet. She would have to get moving while the temperature was still nice. Lizzie was about to get moving when she remembered that her journey was no longer a solitary one. Above her on the dead tree, the longneck spotted her flyer comrade, looking in the opposite direction, apparently fixated on a point far beyond her field of vision. Awkwardly, she cleared her throat to get the flyer's attention.

"Uhm, I am awake. Sh-should we get going?"

A look of slight suspicion formed on the threehorn’s face as he heard the fastrunner’s words but in the end, he wasn’t too badly taken back by them. The omnivore could well carry Aquarius for a while as that would give the threehorn finally some time alone, something he knew he needed desperately. And later on, he’d likely earn another chance to find common understanding with the swimmer. The expression on his round face relaxed a bit as he looked at the fastrunner and spoke in a cold but not outright hostile voice.

“Fine. We’ll take turns, fastrunner. But now, let’s get on the move. The sooner we find any place better than this, the sooner I’ll finally get rid of you for good.” The threehorn said, gesturing for the omnivore to start walking. He soon headed after the halftooth, giving a brief snort in the process. This meeting had been one big disaster from the beginning and he would regret meeting the omnivores for the rest of this long march. But for now, he had avoided being left all alone out here, a fact that even after everything created a flicker of warmth deep within the boy. Maybe there was hope for him to survive in this world after all.

Several days later:

Well, crap.

If Buko were to be honest he had no idea what to expect exactly with his latest turn at the vanguard of the group.  They had traveled for several days against the harsh scenery of the barrens around them, often tasting dust liberated from the desolate surroundings by the harsh winds that seemed to take no notice of their sufferings.  The small stream, however, provided them with water and, with difficulty enough food for their needs.  The limited greenery by the welcome water source was more than enough for the swimmer, but only enough to keep the threehorn at an acceptable level of grumbling.  The few fish that could be found, on the other hand, was only enough to keep the hunger pains away from Buko and Wyoh.  In any case though it was enough.  All four of them were alive which, considering what they had been facing, was saying a lot.

But staring into the depths of a massive chasm was not something that Buko thought that they would ever face.  The fact that the small stream now emptied via a tall waterfall into the darkness was only confirmed by his ears.  Their only source of food, water, and hope ended here. 

Or did it?

Buko followed the massive crack in the Earth with curious eyes as he stared to the west.  There was something not quite right here.  If the water in the stream was now entering this massive chasm then he should smell moisture from an unseen lake down below.  But that was not what he was smelling.  No, rather it was what he heard that interested him: the water down below was still flowing.

He scurried to his right and then to his left to determine the direction.  As the sound disappeared when he moved right and grew stronger when he moved left, he had only one clear conclusion - the water was flowing to the west so the crevice was deeper in that direction.  But if they moved east...

He sighed at the realization of what this meant.

The unhappy duty of informing them of their situation now fell upon him, as did the sad fact that they had only two choices.  They could either go east and follow the crevice in the hope that it finally ended as the declining depth indicated, risking starvation if he was wrong, or they could go back the way that they came with all of the risks that entailed.

It was then that he heard the familiar clicking of Wyoh's footsteps.  He held up a hand to let her know not to sprint forward lest the cusp of the crevice be too unstable.

"The water down there is flowing west, which means the crevice is deeper that way.  You think we should head east to see if this crap ends at some point?" he turned around to see her face to face, "The other option is to go back and hope nothing has been following us."

The sound of the Longneck's voice below her snapped Samara out of her thoughts and she rapidly looked around just to see that the sun was already rising. Luckily nothing happened while she was not paying attention to her surroundings, which was a first. She never could really remove the tension that her body has had since the night her parents were-

Samara shook her head, now was not the time pondering on things long gone. She had a task to do, she had promised so she could not break that now. Looking down to the longneck below her she noticed that the longneck was looking at her and that the longneck was quite tired. She knew that the longneck asked if she was ready to continue with their journey but the thoughts during last night came back to her. Would there be anything out there? Would she live long enough for her to see it, or would she be crushed with despair when they realized that there was nothing out there anymore. The more she thought about it, the less she wanted to find out.

Shifting her focus back to the longneck below her, she prepared a reply, but hesitated, why does she continue, what is keeping her here and not somewhere in a ditch where she would meet the same lonely end? She shook her head.

"Yeah, let's go."
