The ruins are the kind of old that you really only see in fiction: overgrowth and moss covering most of everything, decay that suggests hundreds if not thousands of years of disuse, and the overall structure and carvings on the stone seem something straight out of some Indiana Jones movie. Except instead of the racist tropes of native peoples you gotta insert racist tropes involving the occasional band of apes that walk a little bit too-upright and are a bit too proficient with stone tools and fire for comfort. It's downright uncanny.

Thomas is finding himself a bit too busy keeping a low profile, but the part of his brain that detects tropes and story elements is sure noticing the similarities and pattern-matching things. It's a rather creepy situation, yes. He will try to not make it worse. His eyes are open and attentive, ready to dash to cover and avoid being noticed at all.

It is almost an inevitability that one of them - it is unclear who - accidentally steps on something that cracks and makes a noise. Taharqi immediately freezes and shrinks into shadow and stillness as much as he can as the nearest group of apes all look up and around, trying to find the source of the noise.

Thomas follows, or rather, finds another nearby shadow to stay statue-still, his eyes darting between the ground and the group of apes.

The apes eventually decide it was nothing and settle back down, but Taharqi still waits a minute before relaxing and motioning for Thomas to keep following.

Onwards.

Onwards, Thomas follows. Paying more attention to the ground as they move along.
