Tjruna rolled her eyes and turned to look out at the courtyard. Through the bars of the carriage, she could make out the sight of Cristus and another figure approaching the carriages. The other figure was wearing a silver robe with a hood that covered their face, and was speaking softly to Cristus. Once they got close to the carriages, Cristus stopped. The other figure continued to on, getting into the other carriage.
She nodded. The two carriages pulled out of the fortress, first the expensively one then the barred one. Once they had reached the main road they turned in the direction that the two had not yet traveled. In the distance Tjruna could see the tree line of another stretch of forest.
"We need to wait until we have the cover of trees."
Tjruna nodded. "Good." She peered into the trees as they grew nearer. "It looks like there's plenty of underbrush. That's going to make things harder for us, but it'll also make it harder for them." By now the carriages had entered the forest path. Tjruna waited until they'd gotten a good distance in. Then, taking a deep breath, she kicked open the cart door and jumped out, landing in the brush. She quickly caught herself and pushed herself up and the cart slowed down.
