Tracking Lessons

We’ll track them from where they left their horses.

First boots, then shirts strewn along the path. One pair of trews, and another; did you hear them laughing as they stumbled down the hill?

They stood by the river’s edge, bodies dappled golden by the gleam of sunlight on water. Did you see it, through the trees? One of them knelt; the other rested his hands on his companion’s shoulders. Slightly bent knees leave a different kind of footprint, see?

Afterwards, they swam; now they rest, lying close together in the shade.
We’ll not disturb them. This was good practice.
