The third day was over ast nd rainy.(NOT a good sort of day for traveling!) Yet the travelers pressed on. They were dressed in heavy cloaks that they had bought in the last town. "We're on the border of Talminia!" Nayrame shouted above the wind. Fairy did no answer, but kept walking. Suddenly, out of nowere it seamed, a group of slave traders on horse back burs ou! They formed a circle around the girls. The girls fought back to back and Nayrame warded them off bravely, but it was almost useless. Suddenly, Nayrame noticed that they were several yards further from the mountian pass than they ahd been 10 minutes ago. The slave traiders were herding them towards the Western wood, the resting place of all Talminian villains! They were almost there now, at the very entrance of the forest. Then Nayrame gave a desperate attempt of escape. She sheathed her sword, grabbed hold of Fairy, and darted under the nearest horse. The rider, taken completely by suprise, did not even see Nayrame's sword coming to knock him off his horse (which it did). And the two girls galloped away to safety. "That was way to close"! Nayrame said, breathing heavely. Fairy was shaking terribly. THe girls found a nce cavve (Talminia is the sort of place were you can find a cave) to sleep in. And continued there journey n the morning.
Part II will be posted tomorrow.
