Moksha – p.13

October 4, 2012 at 3:54 pm 1 comment

The night did not reveal any secrets that the previous days of walking hadn’t, but Moksha never got tired, so she kept going. By the time she realized the sky was getting lighter, it was too late to make it back before the others woke up, so she slowed her pace a bit and kept looking behind her to watch for them, figuring they would catch up to her eventually.

She hadn’t passed any more skeletons, and wondered if she had finally come farther than any herd had ever been. As the sun rose and the day warmed up, she began to feel the ache in her feet and the stiffness in her legs, but she dared not stop. There was still no sign of anyone coming up behind her, and she hoped when they finally did that she wouldn’t be in too much trouble.

She was watching the edge of the land so intently that when she first heard the noise, she thought she was imagining it; then she happened to glance over across the trees below into the valley, and saw the silver flash of racing water. She stopped and stared: the river was narrower here, and filled with big rocks. Somehow, Moksha knew she was getting close to something important.
