Ash thought nothing of traveling through the night. He hadn’t been sleeping well anyway since Rowan’s death. With his sister still mad at him and his patience with Claes wearing more thin every day, when Relic had said he didn’t at all mind Ash taking a few days away, he had jumped at the opportunity for solitude.
The lake he padded towards now reminded him of Starshatter, though. The same sort of formation, rocky walls, but WAY bigger a lake. It reminded him of the beach, and that brought a fleeting thought of Arashi and how the Tribe girl was doing. A thought Ash didn’t dwell on, trying to get back to the notion of being on his own.
That was safest, for Ash. In the end he would always be alone.
He sniffed around the shore of the lake. There were a few repeated wolf scents here, but not more than three, he decided. That was three too many wolves than what he wanted to see, but since he didn’t see any of them around he began a perimeter scout of the edge of the lake.
