Yesterday morning, I noticed some tracks going off and away from the trail. I know I could send a message to the Sheik and he would track them. I would never rest easy not going myself though. The Old Goat would never forgive me if I didn't look myself either.
I have been following the tracks since yesterday morning and so far today. I have seen nothing to make me think they had been kidnapped by Nic and his friends. I think someone just lost their way and wandered off the trail. I will do my best to find them and guide them back. I hope nothing has happened to them. The tracks seem to be getting fresher though.
I think I can see someone far out in the distance. I must be catching up with the wanderer. I brought along a good supply of water in case I needed it.
I am closing my scroll for now to hurry onwards.
May your travels be safe and your trail smooth.
Keep them away from your face.
One step, and then another, will get you to where you want to be.
