Chapter 23

Our luck doesn’t hold for long. As we get further and further from the ravine and the bridge we experience more tremors. The landscape keeps on shifting in the distance around us, I feel it in my bones now. Every single shake now is a violent, brutal assault to my senses. Does that mean something big is building up? Something we may not be able to survive?

I lead the way and the rest of the survivors follow me in a single file. I keep my doubts to myself. The harshness of the terrain has forced us to travel in a single file. It’s a formation that is not conducive to much talk. For once, I am grateful for that.

In the past few hours the wind has begun to pick up. It hits us mercilessly now. The wind is so strong it physically pushes us back. I’ve never experienced wind this strong in my entire life and I did not think it was possible and yet, as the entire world changes and reshapes itself in front of our eyes, I am no longer surprised by anything.

We have to keep on going or we risk being cut off from the mainland. As much as we want to stop and rest, until we reach a safer location, we cannot. We must push through.

Quest: Push against the wind.

Optional subquest: I need to get a clearer look at where we are and what is happening around us. There is a really tall rocky, lookout point I can climb. The rockface is smooth. Worn by rain, wind and water. There are no toeholds. But there is a tick vine hanging down from the top that looks strong enough to hold me. If I manage to get to the top it means I will have better bearings than before. But it is really hard work getting there and it has its own risks. I need to make up my mind.
