Rog and the rest traveled back the way we came from before Bonnte lost his boot. He was travelling barefoot now so he didn’t walk so funny with only one shoe.

Derk took Rabble back and put him on his shoulder. Rabble was batting at a shell on a chain Derk wore around his neck. It was a necklace Grola had made for Derk last year. Rog didn’t even notice he had it until now. He scratched Rabble’s head without thinking about it and had sadness in his eyes.
