And Liland's a good rider, sitting confidently on Cloud after he helps Kat up onto Bela.

Mat's not so bad himself, taking up one of his father's horses.

Permalink

Liland lets himself drift to nearer the rear of the line as they ride, keeping an eye on his friends.

The ride is mostly quiet.

They make the Taren river as dusk falls, catching the ferryman just before he retires.

Permalink

Lan seems anxious to hurry him along, applying liberal amounts of coin to speed his steps.

Permalink

No objections from the various teens (Kat's getting very tired - and Bela's clearly pretty tired still - but she's not going to be the first to admit that, so).

Permalink

They're a little more than halfway across when the howling begins. Not wolves, it's too angry to be wolves.

The sound is raw fury, hatred, crawling like thunder over the horizon.

Permalink

Yeah that's apparently panicking the horses!

Permalink

As well it might.

"Faster," Lan snaps at the ferryman, though he and his men hardly need the encouragement.

Permalink

When they reach the far side, Eloise herds everyone off the boat, and while Lan engages the ferrymen in conversation-


-the boat is sucked underwater by an abruptly-formed whirlpool.

Permalink

Outrage, when this is noticed!

Permalink

Lan passes over another pouch of money, then gets the teens back on their horses.

Permalink

Kat for one wouldn't wanna cross back with that howling going.

Bela's dancing under her, and she's anxious too - she's tense waiting for the signal to keep riding.

Permalink

Eloise goes around the group, placing a hand on everyone and their horses for a moment apiece. As she does so, they feel their tiredness wash away, ready and fresh to continue riding.

Permalink

On then, into the gathering night.
