Aside : Alright, I know that, at the start of this entry, I’ve got a grand total of 1 Endurance left, and I lost all my equipment.
But then I attended this today. My mood is on the ‘awesome’ setting, at least until Friday 9 September.
Back to Avenger-in-training and his (badly wounded) progress.
I leave Suma, travelling west and dressed as a ‘simple traveller’. As we near the ‘River of Peace’ I see a red kite (!) above the treeline, with a picture of a ninja (!!) drawn upon it.
This can be a threat, a warning or the result of a child who read too many Eric Van Lustbader novels.
(Hey, when you’re fifteen, that sort of sex / violence / martial arts / faux philosophy combo can be intoxicating).
In either event, I think leaving the road for the cover of the forest is an excellent idea.
In the corner of my vision, I see dark shapes approaching me. Unfortunately, since I no longer have my equipment, the option of swimming downstream while using my breathing tube isn’t open to me. I guess I just have to ‘race deeper into the forest’.
And…..Shuriken fly from all directions, and a figure ends my life from behind with a sword blade.
I guess I have a new movie to star in :
Mood : Still good.
