[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 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.

Fish is exactly what Thomas is thinking, and some undisclosed, soggy amount of time later, he has a few fish speared on a stick and roasting over a small fire.

He remains calm as she jerks awake, offering a soft smile as she looks at him.

"Hey there," he says, then extends a skewered fish to her. "Hungry?"

"Careful, it's hot. Take the stick."

He watches some, but keeps his eye on the other fish roasting over the fire. The girl was like a skittish animal, and staring is likely to startle her even more, he thinks.

"Did you sleep okay?"

"I offered to, didn't I? You fell asleep pretty quickly."

"If I minded, I would have said so, or dunked you in the creek and refused to carry you further. S'fine."
