"Hey, I'm Ruth. Howdy. Nice to meet you." I looked wildly around. Just behind me, someone else stood. She saw me. Another human. She followed me, often looking down, to the forest floor that lay a ways down.
"I'm human." Ruth said. "I can read your mind." I stopped for a moment, but then kept creeping along the branches.
"You aren't scared. You don't care. You are rather a loner and the girl that you were following but now have lost is named Kirall."
"So, what's with your single word answers?"
"I like being short and consise, and I don't like having to say everything."
"Doesn't matter, anyway. I can tell what your thinking." I whirled around.
"There are Adepts taking Kirall. I want to find out where they are going, but first I have to find them. Yes, I lost them." She then was silent. I wasn't sure was to do with this new person that was following me. Should I let her come?
"Oh, and I can mimic your powers. I'll be stealthy too."
"Okay." I said. "As you already know, I don't care."
