"They need ta' learn their lesson, " Wilma claimed. "These damned fools really thought they could take us all out…."

So, they continued, leaving the unconscious to wonder about their decisions; once they came to, of course. Silence persisted for a while. Then, whispers washed over the caravan.

"This is unbelievable, " some of the merchants were astonished. "Maybe Senior Gonzalo is right, " others questioned. "We must make a living, " more stated.

Larson's crew kept pace in silence, though. Glennmoor's outskirts were less than a day away, and the warrior's wondered about the state of the city. Under a clouding sky of dark gray, they trudged onwards to their destination. It was only once the fences corralling the livestock came into view that Cicatriz approached Garrett.

So, a dozen guards including Cicatriz, Larson, Garrett, Lyalla, and eight others escorted Gonzalo the next mile to the hewn posts surrounding the whole of Glennmoor. The closer they came, they heavier the rains fell; their surroundings grew dark, ominous, and chilly. Wiry trees and bushes danced in the winds, and two dozen citizens gathered on their side of the road.

"Turn back, " one of them called out.

"We come simply to discuss these troubled times with the mayor, " Gonzalo declared.
