Derk poked the other elves to make sure they were still asleep. The biggest elf waited by the door of the rolling cage to be let out. Qatalya made sure to tie his hands together and attached him to a longer rope that Derk could hold. Rog shut the cage back up tight and Qatalya went through the elves’ bags to see if she could find anything useful. She found some maps and food and a small shiny stick.

“We need to get some distance from here before we look at these,” we all started walking down the path again. This time, the not-elf said we should stay closer to the trees so we could hide better.
