A weight Lifted as Li eventually watch the pair leave.
They left hurriedly past where he could see them.
Only after a few minutes had passed had he felt that he could relax.
Were they truly gone and not just out of sight?
He didn’t know but he couldn’t stay hulled up at the thought.
His mind drifted to the first human beast being.
He himself had forgotten that he also held beast-like traits until triggered by the encounter.
But apart from this, he remained distracted for more than just a few minutes.
He just couldn’t forget that girl’s face.
Something about it held sway over his mind…
Soon darkness fell over the hut…
And Li, he recalled his own worse darkness…
But would she be the same?
Are rather was she the same as him?
“Why am I bothered about this…?”
Li had been trying to sleep for the last few moments. However, his mind would drift over to his past.
He rose from the straight bench.
He had never been a heavy sleeper.
He sluggishly looked towards some light that had been pouring into the holes in the hut.
The greater part of the night had past but more light shone from the crystal.
It had been the first night since he had entered the forest own his own.
He had first noticed a dim glow as the amount of ambient light fell.
The outpouring of light from these stones appeared to change over time.
It held “clarity” for the lack of a better word.
Unlike outside of the radius there was stability, he could see that surreal symbols stretched out across the land and everything within it.
Li felt it was best to keep the fact that he could see these symbols to himself.
Why did he not tell wolf?
His himself was not entirely sure himself.
The short spear and knife was next to him.
Li, now outside the hut, gazed at the crystal immersed within the sounds of the night.
He watched as the saw the light on symbols dimmed and brighten periodically.
He felt as if he had overlooked something about them.
He pulled out a book, a copy of the book he was made to read from.
As he couldn’t sleep, he decided to examine its exterior.
It was created with precision.
There were faint writing on the surface.
He had not see it before.
The space around these symbols on the book were different than the areas without them.
They held a sort of order or structure…
But after examining it for a few more minutes, Li exhaustion made him so that he could no longer couldn’t concentrate.
Even after a few hours resting, he again felt weak.
His breathing also became more rapid.
He placed the book back into a sac which was on the floor.
Li then went back into the hut in which he pull his back towards the wall.
He felt tired…
