On top of a hill not more than a hundred yards away, the embers of a fire glowed. Alex’s stomach tightened. We were too close. She crept forward. Three men slept near the fire, but there were four horses. She couldn’t see the fourth man, but guessed he was on watch. Where was he? Slowly, she scanned the trees, looking through the branches and searching the darkness, when she heard him walking through the bushes to her left. She waited, bow and arrow at the ready until he got within range. He wore a red bandana around his neck, identifying him and his friends as Red Elves. If she captured one of them alive, maybe he could tell her where her grandmother was. But then again, Red Elves weren’t talkative and she’d lose valuable time. As he stepped into the clearing, Alex shot him. Before he fell, he screamed, waking his friends. They scrambled to their feet, drawing weapons before Alex had a chance to shoot again.
The men split up and hid behind the trees and bushes. Alex lost them in the darkness, but she waited patiently. One of them rambled by, not finding her in the underbrush. As the other two passed by her position, she followed. When one of them went to her left, she crept up behind him and dug her Elfin Blade into his back. His cry alerted the others, but by the time they got there, Alex had slipped back into the woods. She fired another arrow into the chest of one, but as she aimed at the fourth, Riv appeared next to him.
