It didn't take long for the party to become submerged in the thick jungle overgrowth. Gladius was not a hard guide to follow, as his movements over fallen logs and through thick foliage were slow and cumbersome.
For some reason Gladius turned towards Hitora as they marched. "I heard several rumours about you. Exactly how old are you?"
Bramble gave no verbal response, only a very mild shrug as he followed after him. Have I really been walking all night?
If she saw, on the well-lit camp in the region of jungle, as dawn had finally broken through fully, she would find it... Deserted.
No smoke trailed up from the campfire. The ground where they had slept was beginning to moisten with dew. The line of trees and foliage where they made their entrance was almost invisible along the row of trees.
And the only direction they could have gone? somewhere through the line of trees, towards the heart of the region of Jungle.
That's when she heard the call, booming through the jungle, bellowing across the entirety of Okoto.
Frog scraped himself together after another horrible nightmare shook every bone in his body. This time it was a small family crushed underneath rubble, crying out for help. It apparently didn't stop dream him, as he had driven a mace through the head of one and strangled the others.
Stepping up to the edge of his cavern, Frog reeled in a massive gulp of air into his tiny lungs ad let an ear-splitting call across all of Okoto. The folks in the jungle region must've heard it the loudest.
Halmos growled to himself as he forced himself to move faster, then-
A sudden booming sound, clearly from an animal, rippled through the air. With panicked eyes he lowered his altitude in an attempt to avoid detection should one of them turn around in curiosity.
