"Not until after sunset, " Garrett replied, his chin in the palm of his hand.

"He's right, " Fortha grunted, struggling to right himself.

"You see?" Larson pointed at him. "You can barely move."

"What are you suggesting, I stay behind?"

"There's nothing wrong with that, you know?"

"I agree, Fortha, " Lyalla said.

"You're all daft! I can't sit back while my friends risk life and limb, " the elf disputed.

"And we can't afford to have someone in your condition hold us back, and before someone bites my head off, consider the circumstances, " Larson demanded.

"Look, " Garrett jumped in, "there's only four of us without Fortha; we don't know how long Charlotte will take if she shows up at all, we have no idea where Mathew is, and there isn't anyone else to aid us…unless…."

"What is it, " Lyalla asked.

While Fortha muttered under his breath, Garrett's eyes widened, and he answered her. "We've a few hours left before nightfall. Let me run to the Temple of Tarielle and see if Magister Saren will lend us a hand. If we can get just a few mages to join us, we may not need Fortha's help, and they may even keep him safe until our return."

"I can take care of myself, " he shouted. "Stop acting like I'm broken, I was simply winged, that's all. I'm fine now."

He stood and twisted his body, but the strain of injury was yet evident. He winced, turned red from embarrassment, and plunked back down, despondent.

"Tug your bow,

s our plan then, " Fortha asked.

"We don't have one, " Garrett answered. "All we can do is march over to their building, kick the door down, and start hacking away."

"That's a terrible plan, " Lyalla cried out.

Garrett shrugged, knowingly. "I am aware, but their building sits amidst other homes, so we can't set it ablaze in the hopes of flushing them out without accidentally setting other houses on fire. If we're doing this now, this is all we can do."

"Maybe we should wait, " Fortha fretted.

"For what?" Larson scrutinized him.

"Charlotte…if she gets everyone cleared, I'm certain we can also add Wilma and Yoris to the team, and perhaps Mathew may yet find his way here by then."

"Charlotte might not get anyone cleared, " Larson rebutted, "and I doubt if Mathew is coming by anytime soon. I'm game; we go now."

Garrett winced as he rapped his fingers against the cot's frame. He glanced at Lyalla, who returned a sympathizing look and smiled.
