As the pack and Sky arrive back home Sky keels over panting. Ari falls next to her on his front.
“We must head into the mountains” Ari says.
“What… now?” Sky asks still trying to catch her breath back.
“The sooner the better, come on”
“Aw” Sky scrambles to her feet as Ari starts off.
“We walk till dark, and then we rest”
“How long will that be?”
“Few hours, we should be halfway there by then”
“… Are you joking?”
“No, let’s go” Sky sets off behind Ari slowly, the pack with her. Now they are off to find the dagger. But how sure are they the dagger is up there? Is Rachel bluffing? Or does Rachel have the knife on her? Or is it still in the cabin? These answers will now be at the top of the mountain.
