He kept the tree and the rise it had created between himself and the camp, quietly buckling his sword and shield back in place and slinging his quiver over his shoulder. His cloak was caked with dirt all along one side, but that didn't stop him from pulling his hood down low over his face once more, simply grabbing the hunk of mud that pulled one side of his mantle down farther than the other and tossing it as he again started to walk, moving at a diagonal to the campsite to keep himself screened as best he could be. He caught sight of Saphira and the other girl with the wheelbarrow striking off from the opposite side of camp and angled his trek to match theirs; he had no idea where he was in relation to where he had started and counted on using them to get back to that bridge and the road it was on. 

Their paths naturally intersected near the river bank but they would end up farther down it than he; he did not adjust his pace to match, letting them choose whether to wait up for him (in which case he would catch up so they would not wait long) or to travel separately but within the same direction.

The words from the larger man grumbled and cracked, but still held a certain weight that left Cassandra with goosebumps. She filed that parting comment along with everything else the men had said throughout this, but did not slow her movements. It felt too meaningful to ignore.

There would be time to dissect everything later. For now, they needed to get away as quickly as possible.

Still, she couldn't help but to glance to Saphira at her side as the two of them kept moving as quick as their steps could carry them. "What... what was all that about?" She didn't expect an answer, the question more of a release of tension than anything else. The fact that they had escaped with their lives was still a surprise, like a delicate flower she didn't dare to prod at too much in case she ruined it.

She lowered her voice as she continued. "What were you doing over there? Was that other Starcatcher even still... alive?"

When thunder roars without clouds and dust is on the horizon? Was he giving them a warning? Saphira got the feeling that despite the fact they'd killed someone in cold blood for no good reason at all, and stealing from children besides, they were genuinely thinking they were helping the Star Catchers, in their own twisted ways.

Once they were far enough away from the camp, she told Cassandra, "I was helping free the Star Catcher they had caught. And yes, he was still alive. I needed your friend's cloak so he can camouflage items as himself and get away. And he managed to get away, I think. I hope. I will wait for him, but you can go on if you want." She paused where she was, though she knew she couldn't wait long.

She wasn't sure where Cassandra was planning on taking the body of the dead boy. That was definitely a question she wasn't looking forward to asking.

As he cleared a little group of trees by the water's edge, he saw them and gratefully made his way in that direction, reasonably sure that the road then was that way. Saphira had paused, as though waiting, and while he walked, he considered the idea of joining with her, if she offered it. Honestly he would have preferred no one undertook this but himself, just judging by what he was going to do with the star once he had it, but, obviously, doing it alone had some massive disadvantages. He kept his approach steady rather than increase his speed as he had originally thought he would when he saw that she was waiting; he heard their voices on the wind - unable to actually decipher anything they were saying, but he didn't want to interrupt them in case they were figuring out what they wanted to do.

Cassandra continued to look at Saphira, impressed all over again with the skill she showed. Saving a helpless and captured victim against all odds... she truly was a heroine to be admired.

She wondered what happened in this girl's life to make her so competent in everything she did. She wondered if she could learn to be similarly effective someday.

"That was quick thinking, and even quicker action." Cassandra couldn't keep the praise from her voice. "We're going the same way though, right? To the next town? Might as well stick together until then."

She didn't know if she should mention that part of her hesitation to leave was the fact that she no longer had any kind of weapon in which to protect herself. Though she supposed that even with a weapon, she'd done a poor job in protecting anyone.

The wheelbarrow suddenly felt a whole lot heavier at that thought.

"Unless you prefer to part ways," Cassandra added, a feeling of inadequacy pooling in the pit of her stomach. She shrugged it away, accepting the fact that the emotion was there before dismissing it before it could take hold. "The choice is yours. The least I can do is to not burden you after you've done so much for us all." She paused, glancing towards Saphira's face. "Thank you, for that. I don't know what would have happened without you there."

She decidedly kept herself from looking down towards the contents of the wheelbarrow and focused instead on the fact that so many people were spared the same fate.

Admiration was something she was used to seeing on people's faces, but this was the first time she'd seen it from someone so far removed from Shadeslake. It felt... like she had earned it more, somehow. Even if impressing peasants wasn't hard.

"Thanks. Dealing with people all the time kind of forces me to be able to think on my feet. I have to say I've never negotiated with robbers or murderers before, though." She leaned against the nearest tree, suddenly feeling exhausted. She'd stuffed down all the fear and trauma in an effort to stay focused and save their skins before, and now that the adrenaline rush was finally over, looking at the dead body made her nauseous.

"And you're welcome. I don't mind if you tag along. You're pretty strong, though I don't know how well you'd fare without a weapon. Maybe we can return to the spot we left them and see if they're still there and pick them up? I'm going to need my spear, too."

She stood up and took a deep breath. She didn't want to think about what had happened had the group been ambushed without her there. There would have probably been a bloodbath.

"Just... try to remember that violence doesn't always solve everything. Usually, it just brings more violence."

She turned towards the camp again, anxious to put more distance between them and the highwaymen, and that was when she saw him.

William. The boy she'd met in Shadeslake one fine summer day so many years ago. The boy that had been in her mind for the past few years as she prepared for this journey.

She waved at him to come join them, and began moving slowly again, wondering how best to tell Cassandra about who he was. She suspected he didn't want her to know, so she'd play along with whatever introduction he offered.

She turned back towards Cassandra and gestured at the wheelbarrow, "What are you planning to do with him?"

The advice settled itself over her, at once both welcomed and rejected. It was rather ironic seeing as she'd never before used violence to solve anything until that moment. She didn't regret the fact that she'd done it—an action fueled by desperation, fear, and grief—but she knew that Saphira had a point. After all, Saphira's quick-witted words had been far more effective.

"I will try to keep that in mind," she said, before glancing away, forward up the path that they needed to take. She wondered, then, what had happened with Kitty and the other girl. Had they continued on without troubles? Were they in even greater danger than the situation they'd left?

Would she ever even know?

The idea of never seeing Kitty again sat poorly with her, and Cassandra pushed the thoughts away. She had to believe that Kitty could keep going on, could find the star.

Saphira's next question stuttered all other thoughts. Cassandra couldn't help but to look down, towards the wheelbarrow she tried to avoid seeing, tears stinging at her eyes at the sight. But this was not a safe place to break down, so she blinked them away, saving those crumbling emotions for a time where she could afford to acknowledge them.

"I don't... know," she answered, voice soft. She cleared her throat, continuing in a stronger tone. "I could see if someone in the town would be willing to send him to his family. But without the coins to pay, I suppose that's a shot in the dark. Otherwise... maybe I could steal a shovel or something, and bury him somewhere nice. Somewhere with a large view of the sky. Charles... I think he would have liked that."

With her signal, he lengthened his stride back towards his normal pace and fell into step behind them in no time, just catching the end of the other girl's plans for the body in the wheelbarrow - Charles must have been his name. 
DM wrote:
Ahead two figures materialized over the horizon from the north, following the makeshift path from the bridge back towards the robber's hideout. They lazily carried signs with them.
Leon pulled his hood farther down and bent his head, walking behind the pair of girls as though defeated or mourning the loss of the Catcher that didn't make it. The men were armed, but were not at the ready - it was reasonable to believe then that they were part of the group - they walked with confidence as though knowing where they were going but without signs of searching aggression, as any other citizen would have if they hunted bandits. He didn't quite understand the meaning behind the signs, but if they were positioned right they could read them. "Try not to engage them," he suggested, his voice just loud enough to be heard by the girls ahead of him.

She felt sympathetic towards Cassandra, but could not offer a solution. The best she could offer was maybe sweet-talking a villager to do the first option, and she suspected they might be willing to help anyway since the Star Catcher was already dead.

Before she could say anything, however, she saw more people in the distance. She wanted to take off her cloak, but William had no choice but to use it to keep his face hidden, and she'd be found out anyway if she continued walking with him, or else be suspected of aiding him with no coin to prove it. Might as well keep it on.

She continued walking, veering a little off the two figures' path in the hope they'd simply pass by, heading for the spot she had left the spear, hoping it was still there with Cassandra's axe.

Shashka tensed, then relaxed. She had stuck her foot in her mouth again, but at least this time things seemed to turn out all right. This cart driver was like some kind of reckless hero. Why does he care so much about us anyway? He obviously carries some sort of sway in this village. I mean, look at all the people who went with him. Maybe he can save those two Star Catchers... maybe they're already dead. She shuddered - cold despite the temperature, and redirected her thoughts to the bar woman. 

"Tamara... we're hungry and tired," she stated simply. She felt too drained to stir up whatever lacking charm she possessed. For some reason, the earlier attention and loudness of the bar had left her feeling raw and vulnerable. She wanted to get some food and some rest, preferably in a quiet room.

If her companion was willing to stay awake long enough to eat something, so was Kitty. The thought of being alone did not sit well with her right now. She felt an irrational concern that if Shashka left her sight, she might never seen the tanned girl again. There were already too many people she might never seen again—she wasn't willing to add to that list. She had thought it was difficult enough to endure solitude just because it was so different from what she knew back home. Now that seemed almost impossible to handle.

"Thank you," Kitty stated first to the tavern-keeper, still feeling guilty about being offered this favor even as she willingly took it. "Food would be wonderful."

Cassandra felt her muscles tense as she spotted the two forms ahead of them, her lack of weapon all the more alarming at the prospect of potentially dangerous strangers.

The order to not engage being the first words she'd heard from the boy with the blonde hair somehow felt unsurprising. The boy had almost materialized in silence behind them, quiet and unassuming, and he seemed content in keeping a low profile even now.

Saphira began to give the two strangers a wide berth and Cassandra took her lead. Her hands grasped the wheelbarrow in an achingly tight grip, but followed without saying a word, keeping her face in a neutral expression.

Though as the figures came closer, she couldn't help but to keep them in her line of sight so that she could be ready if they decided to attack. She was curious, too, about the signs they carried.

But at least they were signs, and not weapons.

Tamara the Tavern Keep wrote:
"That's to be expected, isn't it?" she said, the tease warm. She wedged the cloth between herself and her apron and turned away, leaving the tavern to enter the tiny kitchen area in the next room. 

She returned a moment later with wooden bowls filled with hot, vegetable-filled stew. "Eat up; when you're finished I'll show you your room," she stated as she put the bowls in front of them and stepped away, near enough to be within earshot if they asked something of her but not near enough to eavesdrop.

He scowled upon reading the sign, the last piece of their plan falling into place. It was no wonder they did not seem to fear being discovered while harassing them - they had orchestrated the whole event to be sure they were not disturbed. Farther ahead he could see the tree they had hidden behind, and the bridge across the water, and -- 

His brows furrowed, eyes alighting on the Star Catchers cloak caught upon a stone in the brook, the cape fluttering off into the downstream water. Without further consideration he carefully stepped down off the bank and made his way towards it, heaving the great blue cape out of the water and wringing it out a few times before rejoining the girls up on the bank, the heavy material draped across his arms, intending to fold it into his pack once it fully dried.

It tasted like the most miraculous thing she had ever eaten. It was only when the first spoonful was in her mouth that Kitty actually understood that she was hungry. She closed her eyes, savoring it, feeling slightly more human that she had all day. In a way, it reminded her of her mother's cooking. She couldn't have pinned the connection to any particular taste or ingredient—it really had to do with how she felt in the moment. This place was nothing like home, but knowing she could finally relax, knowing that they were not under attack or being hunted, was good enough.

"He's so nice," she said in-between bites, determined to enjoy this meal as best she could, to wipe out the unpleasant memories with this one. "So is she."

Kitty just assumed that Shashka would know she spoke of the traveler and the tavern owner. She was still too used to everyone around her knowing her well enough to pick up on her commentary.

So these were more of those highwaymen's gang, then. And if they were heading to camp... they might all realize William had disappeared and gone after the group. And these two had passed them. They needed to get out of there and fast. She was surprised, however, that they'd simply attempted to scare them instead of more robbery, though there was nothing left to give. Maybe it just wasn't on their job description. Saphira wanted to take that sign away, but... by her count, there was no more Star Catchers behind them, unless Shashka's partner had been left behind somehow. She still had no idea what had happened to her.

Either way, it was good that they managed to pass without incident, but they needed to hurry.

William went into the water and, at first she thought he was getting a drink, but then she saw him picking up a Star Catcher cloak. Whose...? Was it one of the girls' that had ran off first?

...They had better not be dead.

She made it back to the spot where they'd left all their weapons, and picked up her spear as well as the flail that belonged to the dead boy. Cassandra's axe, however, seemed to be missing, along with the blonde's machete. She handed the flail to Cassandra.

"This was your friend's, I believe. Let's hurry and cross the bridge. They can still catch up once they realize their captive is gone."

He paused as Saphira gathered their things, his eye catching on something silvery on one of the panels of the bridge. Brows narrowing, he moved forward to investigate, bending easily despite his pack to pick up the silver Star Catcher Coin. How was this left behind? It was what they were after, wasn't it? While crouched, he found one more, and shifted to pick it up, too. The back had an identical mark to the first. "Do these belong to either of you?" he asked, standing offering the coins, sigil-side-up, on the palm of one of his hands for them to see as they stepped onto the bridge.

The sign and the men holding it were not even worth the effort to look their way. Just more monsters mixed up in terrible deeds. Cassandra quelled the urge to do something, to save anyone else from the same treatment she and the others had suffered, but without a plan and without a weapon, there wasn't much to be done.

She'd have to hope they'd get what was coming to them eventually. Maybe an unknown hero would happen upon that group of highwaymen and bring them to justice in one fell swoop, saving the nearby town and any passing travelers the danger.

They made their way back to where all of this began. The boy went off to retrieve a cloak, but Cassandra forced herself to not think about who might have owned that cloak. Kitty was away from this place by now, she was safe. She had to believe that.

Saphira gave her the flail, its weight heavy in more ways than one, and it seemed a poor fit—how did one even use this strange thing?—but it was better than nothing at all and so she took it with a smile. "Thank you," she said, gripping the weapon in her hands. She liked to think that perhaps Charles was protecting through the flail.

But reminiscing wasn't something they could afford right now. She nodded at Saphira's comment and began to head towards the bridge, wheelbarrow in tow and the flail hooked on her side where her axe once sat. The more distance they put between their path and the highwaymen, the better.

She was distracted by the boy picking up something from the ground, but as soon as that silvery glint caught the light, Cassandra's eyes widened as hope flared in her chest. "Those belong to Kitty!" she said automatically.  She had tried so hard to keep those special coins in Kitty's possession. The idea that there were still a few to be saved... She made to reach for them, to protect them until she found Kitty once more—the need to see Kitty alive and well rang strong in her chest—but she hesitated after the first step.

Those coins were valuable and she knew nothing about this boy. Would he be the type to return them to their rightful owner? Would he keep them for himself or give them to Saphira, the girl who saved him from a terrible fate? Would he even believe her when she said that she did not want them for herself?

She looked towards him, gaze steady, but his hood obscured his face and she was left without any visual cues. "Can I have them? I want to return them to her."

The girl's sudden exclamation nearly knocked him off guard. He didn't flinch, but rather stiffened with how quickly she responded, his fingers slightly curling around the coins in his palm, his mind racing. She had responded quickly and assuredly, without even looking at the mark, but surely she knew how the coins worked? If she was bluffing about them belonging to "Kitty" she wouldn't be able to use them anyway. There was no harm in it; his intention was to try to see if they were connected to the dead fellow - Charles - and bury them with him if they were; but if they belonged to someone yet still alive, they deserved to have them back. 

At her request, he held out the coins for her to take. "By all means."

Cassandra took the coins, watching the silver catch the brightness of the sun on its polished surface. "Thank you," she said, and she meant it.

She looked upon the little mark that indicated that these were Kitty's coins, and she ran her fingers over it. She smiled, thankful that something had been salvaged from the terrible things that had happened in this very spot. It didn't make up for any of it, but it helped to soften the blow.

Tucking the coins safely into a pocket, Cassandra glanced once more towards the boy and then to Saphira. The urgency from before came back in full force now that the coins were in her possession, and so she took the initiative to begin walking towards the bridge, confident the others would follow.

As she walked passed the boy with the blonde hair, she added, "Thank you again. I'm Cassandra by the way."

He followed her up the arced bridge, glancing back once to be sure Saphira was following, and considered her introduction. He committed her name to memory - Cassandra wasn't all that difficult a name to remember as it also belonged to a cousin - but what gave him pause was whether she was asking for his name in return. He had no idea whether Saphira had explained him to her or how she had explained him if she had. Offering a contradictory name would only invite questions that would lead to trouble, and then there was the chance that she had been told his name and wasn't asking for one in return, simply giving hers; but then if she was requesting a name and he offered none it would be rude. ... There were ways to make that up. 

"Think nothing of it, Cassandra," he said as they reached the top and started down the slight incline to the solid ground on the other side of the brook, "May I help you?" he offered, motioning to the wheelbarrow and its unfortunate occupant, "You must be growing weary; I'm sure he wouldn't want you tiring yourself out on his account."

She turned when William posed his question, squinting at the coins he offered. The sigil did not look like hers, and Cassandra was quick to exclaim that it belonged to, presumably, her blonde friend. William handed it to her and they continued moving, up onto the bridge and hopefully past this area soon.

Cassandra introduced herself, but William notably did not offer his name. Saphira glanced at him, knowing he must have another name to go by during this trial. At the very least she assumed he would, if he was protecting his identity.

"And I'm Saphira," she offered, even though she knew - well, she hoped, he remembered. "What's your name, Highwall boy?" she asked, pointedly emphasizing the last part. He knew she remembered him - she'd commented as much when they'd met, and so he must know this was for the benefit of Cassandra.

The moment the bowl hit her hands Shashka tipped it to her lips and sucked in the heady, seasoned broth. It was rich and warming as it slid into her growling belly, and she felt soothed by the comforting and familiar meal.

"Nice? Yeah... they are." She spoke the words suspiciously. She was grateful, yes, but still on her guard and she wondered absently if she would always be this alert, though the thought seemed silly, even now. "They could have turned us out, but they didn't. That driver seemed particularly sweet on you." She couldn't help it. Seeing the man comfort Kitty had made her jealous for a whole host of reasons, one of which was that he hadn't bothered to do the same for her.

Her instinct was to deny the offer of help. This was her burden to bear and she wouldn't give it up so easily just because she grew tired. But he had a point in the fact that Charles wouldn't expect her to expend all of her energy in this, not with how long of a journey they had yet to go. Not with countless dangers lurking in every corner.

Now that she had a weapon in which to defend herself, she would need to ensure she had the energy to actually use it when the time came. A hero without any energy to complete her task was no hero at all.

But she hesitated, her sorrow and guilt an ever-present weight in her chest, a crystalline-sharp ache she didn't dare look at too closely for fear of breaking. She owed it to Charles to not leave him with a stranger. He deserved that much, didn't he?

She pushed her emotions to the side and focused on the practical side of things. She needed the rest, to give her body a break. She might be strong, but even the strong had limits. Rending herself to the point of total exhaustion out of a sense of guilt helped no one at all.

"Thank you," she said, though the words were hesitant. She stopped and set the wheelbarrow secure on the ground. "Help would be appreciated. Just for a few moments. It's... he's..." she stumbled with the words, before landing on the bare truth of the matter. "It's my fault."  

Feeling as though that were explanation enough, and not feeling any great desire to delve further on that line of conversation, Cassandra moved to the side of the wheelbarrow, remaining close, her eyes focused on the road stretched out ahead of them. She'd share the burden with blond boy, but she wouldn't forget who the burden truly belonged to. She would rest, but she wouldn't leave Charles's side until she was confident he'd get the burial he deserved.

Cassandra relented, though it obviously pained her to do so. Almost hesitantly she relinquished her hold on the handles of the wheelbarrow once they had left the bridge for hard-packed earth; he stepped over to take her place, only then realizing an oversight on his part, and deftly unfurled the spare cloak, shook it out once, and draped it over the body. If it had been her fault he died, staring at his corpse wouldn't be good for anyone. And in either case, whether true or false, he wanted to reassure her that it wasn't her fault, that it had bound to be the fault of the ruffians that had so mishandled them, but Saphira's question served as a much-needed reminder of where he was and what he was supposed to be doing, whether Saphira herself realized it or not. 

At first her reintroduction gave him pause, double checking his own memory - he had called her by name, had he not? - but then he understood what she was doing: she was giving him a chance to use his alias, which meant she hadn't told Cassandra about him. Furthermore, by using his "home city", she reminded him of who he was supposed to be and whom he was not. "Thank you for all your help back there, Saphira," he stated as he lifted the handles of the wheelbarrow and started off down the road again. "The name's Leon," he grimaced at how awkward the words sounded, grateful his expression was hidden under his hood. "Are you both continuing after the star, then?"

He was still as much the kind gentleman as the boy she had met so long ago. The whole reason she had liked him. How, despite everything he had, he was still just a nice person who was trying to achieve his dream like everyone else. Why he had to do it this way, she wasn't sure, but there must be time to talk about it later. Her wish, however, might surprise him when he found out. She hoped it wouldn't be awkward.

He introduced himself as Leon, and she committed this name to memory, trying to think of him as Leon instead of William so that she would not accidentally blurt his actual name.

"I am continuing," she answered his question simply. "I didn't go through all that mess with those highwaymen just to turn back and go home."

The tone of Shashka's voice stirred mixed feelings of shame and guilt. Kitty wasn't proud of her reaction in front of the stranger—bawling like a baby, making an absolute fool of herself. He had to know her age, given that he had spotted the flap of her Star Catcher cloak protruding from her bag, but maybe he had been so gentle her because she was acting like a scared little girl. Kitty didn't have grand visions of adventure and heroism when she made her choice to go down this path, but she felt like an abject failure. Her only success was merely that she was still alive—and that had much more to do with Cassandra and the other girl than Kitty's own actions.

She also felt guilty to have been coddled. Kitty hadn't realized it until the other girl mentioned the merchant's focus. Maybe it was simply a reaction to tears versus frustration? After all, she didn't know him. She had never left Lorham before the trip to Mount Everlast.

"I don't know," she said, after an awkward pause, her spoon lingering in the cooling stew. "But it helped us both."

The gentle admonishment about the time of day didn't bother Kitty at all. She knew how she felt—too tired to be of much use otherwise. Her bowl of stew now empty, her stomach temporarily full, and her thirst satisfied with clear, fresh water. Maybe on some other day, before she started the Star Catcher journey, she might have wanted something more. Right now, she couldn't think of anything to complain about.

Once in the room, unloading her belongings felt like a huge weight was lifted not only physically, but metaphorically. She kept the axe and machete without close reach, rubbing her shoulders now that her bag no longer strained those muscles. Her eyes stayed open long enough to take a bath, although she nearly fell asleep in the warm water. When Kitty finally collapsed into bed, she thought it was the softest, nicest bed she'd ever slept in. Strange to think that only a few days in the woods would add that kind of perspective. The girl was too sleepy to mull over it.

She was glad, too, that Shashka shared the room with her. The sounds of another human being added a layer of comfort. For now, she focused on that sensation, knowing she would be unlikely to experience it again soon once she got moving.
