A New Mistake
He came into the clearing and stopped underneath a clear night sky. The tall grass stood still and pale in moonlight and as his breath slowed, the night’s sounds began to creep into the silence. His ears tickled with the movement and callings of unknown insects, noise he often hoped for, but not tonight, not when he was trying to find mark. Right now he hoped for voices where there were none. He was alone.
He could kick himself for having left behind a group of his companions; for having believed he recognized the wood; for having a moment of inspiration that only revealed itself to be folly when it was already too late (as such is often the case). Yet no matter- he was here now, and had to find mark, had to find trail.
He picked a direction across from where he came, hoping to head back towards his companions. He settled into a run and despite the worry, marveled at his senses attuning to the darkness. Darting in between trees, he began to lose concern and push his pace. He would find his companions- all would be well, so long as he kept running.
He clipped something in the dark, he knew not what, and suddenly connected with the ground. A flash of bright pain illuminated his shoulder as he lay on his side.
“What the hell?” he heard a voice cry out. “Who’s there?”
He said nothing, the wind still caught in his stomach, still stunned with the quick violence that broke his run. A torch illuminated a pixie face amongst the trees. She grinned.
“Thought you knew where you were going, didn’t you?” she asked. He held up his hand in response.
“Don’t worry,” she continued. “I’m on mark. Follow me.”
She set off in a run as if no collision had happened. After checking to make sure his legs worked, he slowly began to follow.
