Sleep

A fatiuge has crept up on you, and you feel compelled to sleep. You never did like the dark, and being in an unknown place only accentuates your fear. Whilst it is still light, you bring your coat around you and curl up to drift off to sleep. The warmth as you do so is wonderful, and you cannot help but smile. You can get to the towns tomorrow, but for now, the sleep is precious to you.

You know, deep down, that it would be best to keep on walking - the towns do not seem very far from your current location, and you would be safe there. However, you are comfortable under this tree, and you do not want to walk alone in the dark, in such an unknown environment.

Do you...

Walk on, to try to get to a town?

Sleep?

The End
