The level of exhaustion he felt was like no other, and yet… even still, satisfaction painted itself across his face. The babbling creek was like a welcoming invitation to the land, to a degree that as Tzu bent himself to drink he offered the creek itself a small bow of his head in silent thanks. His salmony tongue left and returned to his jaws in rhythmic strokes, quenching his thirst little by little until - at last - he felt refreshed enough to raise his head and acknowledge his immediate surroundings. While he wasn’t aware of where it was he’d found himself, Tzu felt at peace with it regardless; his tired muscles and tired mind could rest now, knowing that this would be the end of his journey even if it hadn’t been his intended destination. With his thoughts on his parents and the life he’d left behind, Tzu welcomed a rest and reclined to his haunches creek-side, rocking his weight to one hip and lifting his eyes to watch the burgeoning sunset that had only started to paint the sky in hues of brilliant pink and orange.
