Chapter 7, Pt. 1

They were approaching another intersection between the main road and their path when Silay pulled on her horse's reigns, and was momentarily surprised when he actually stopped. “Did you hear that?” She asked.

Jarlen and Riya circled back to her. “Hear what?”

“It sounded like…” a shout came from the direction of the main road. “…that.”

Riya turned towards the road. “That sounded like a call for help.”

There was a another cry, this one higher pitched. Jarlen frowned. “It sounds like a child.” He looked at Silay. “What should we do?”

Silay was startled. “Why are you asking me?”

“Because this is your unquest. Your mission. You decide what we do. Go on our way or investigate.”

Silay looked back and forth between him and Riya, who were both looking at her expectantly. She wasn't sure she liked this sudden feeling of being in charge. She sighed. “We investigate.”

Silay tried to point her horse towards the main road, but only succeeded in making it take a few steps sideways. Riya had galloped off as soon as Silay had spoken. Jarlen waited to make sure she got her horse pointed in the right direction, then raced after Riya. Silay followed them at a slower pace. She was still nervous about riding the horse at faster speeds.

When Silay reached the intersection, she didn't see anyone. “Riya? Jarlen?” There wasn't an answer. Unable to get the horse to circle around so she could look down the rest road, she dismounted. She couldn't see anyone in any direction. “Hello?” Still no answer. Silay turned to get back on the horse when she heard a noise behind her. She whirled around. “Riya?”

“Guess again.”

From the bushes beside the road, two figures emerged. Talis and Kade. 
Yay! Some old faces are back (less exiting, perhaps, for Silay)
So, I had this post and the next all written, when *poof!* they vanished from my tablet :(. So this is my second version of it. I liked the first better, but it appears to have completely vanished from every location I can think it might have saved to. Also... some insight to my writing environment. While I as planning for Kade's encounter with the group (yes, I do plan...a little), my husband found my list of possible results of the meeting and added his own suggestion: "Kade makes them go fishing and they all eat fish. Fish, fish, fish!" This will not be happening.
