Luther had set out on foot after leaving the arena, positing that while that hitching a ride with one of the merchants would be easier and quicker that it would also bring unwanted attention. After many days and nights in the rocky desert he was beginning to question that decision, arguments for and against causing a schism in his mind.
His nostrils twitched as he caught the mawkish scent of slurry carried on the wind. Looking up he saw that he was now very close to the hills which marked the edge of the desert, knew that he was approaching farmland, which meant civilisation wasn’t too far off.
Thoughts of stew, bread, ale and a soft bed formed in his mind’s eye; he would also be able to garner information and supplies before moving on to his destination.
Decision made, he continued on his steady march in the shimmering heat.
