[with Thomas]

[A day or two after this.]

There are five of the liveried guardsmen in the inn now, and two in the stables.

Kaya hid the night in a storeroom bin that used to hold apples, and is now peering through a crack in the wall into the common room and trying to find a way past them.

He arches a brow in return.

"Yes?"

He shrugs easily and begins to move. Otherwise the soldiers will be on their asses.

"I wouldn't have said I would if I wasn't going to follow through."

"Of course," he says, canting his head in a direction. "They'll come from that way, but they'll likely follow the horses for a time. That'll allow us some distance."

Thomas lifts a hand towards the horses as he moves, as if in farewell, and the horses take off once more, leaving them.

Thomas follows, walking next to her and remaining alert for any extra sounds in the underbrush. The creek is welcome, though, because it should make the going a little easier, especially when he guides Kaya down a narrow deer trail.

Thomas gulps down several mouthfuls of water for himself before splashing some on his face and the back of his neck.

"We should go down river, maybe even stay in the water. We'd be a little exposed, though."

He nods as well and sets to walking downriver.

"Onwards, then."

For a good while, Thomas is mostly silent, wading his way through the water and listening carefully over the sound of water in case they're followed.

It's sometime later, that he notices Kaya drooping notably more than she has been.

"Here, would you like me to carry you?"

He reaches out quickly to steady her, stopping them for a moment.

"There's no shame in needing help, Kaya."

"
I
, didn't try a daring escape on foot from armed guards,
and
I'm also wearing boots."

Beat.

"The size difference helps, too."

He smiles at her, taking a drink for himself before crouching low so she can climb onto his back.

It's not hard to figure out that she's fallen asleep, and once Thomas does, he moves as smoothly as posible, the only sounds coming from his breathing and the slight splashing as he wades through the water.

Once the sun begins to dip low, though, and lengthen his shadow, he moves out of the creek in search of a place to camp for the night.

The clearing looks good. It even has some wood on the ground to make a small fire.

As carefully as he can, he eases Kaya to the ground until she's laying in a soft patch of grass, then lays his coat over her.

Thomas feels that it's safe enough to leave Kaya there for the moment while he goes off to search for some firewood and some food for them. It seems like she's going to be out for a while, so it should give him enough time to gather things and there should be food for when she wakes.
