Kladren: Who are you?

We were searching. Somehow, we got lost.

"Kladren?"

"What?"

"Think we'll ever finish this treasure hunt?"

"It's not a treasure hunt, it's a mystery. A treasure  hunt is different, because you know what you're looking for. We don't."

"Oh." This silenced Tora for a few moments.

We wandered around for a while longer, then i noticed that someone had made a camp in the exact spot where we had ended up. I hoped now one was there. . .

"Kladren?"

"What?"

"Think we'll get back to the Brightwood's Journey to make amends?"

"No. Now find a confortable spot, we'll rest here and find our way back to the beach in the morning." I managed to reignite the fire that the person had made.

"But-"

"Now, Tora. Go to sleep."

She sighed. "You haven't felt civil towards me ever since we left the ship. Jerk."

At least she settled down.

Just then, I looked up, and by the light of the fire, I saw a figure. A very pale one.

"Hey!" I jumped up. Good thing Tora falls asleep fast.

She looked at me with surprise.

"Who are you?" I demanded, realising that we had said it in unison just after I asked.

She didn't answer. Just turned and fled.

The End
