Urga eyed the dark-haired young hunter.
"Well, you may stay for a while, but you must be on your way before we move out to complete the patrol."
He thought for a few moments.
"Or... if you are interested in joining the Army, I could see what I could do about that."
Urga recognized a good fighter when he saw one, and it wasn't every day that lone rangers presented themselves like this.
Kesari got up with a sigh and looked towards the sea, behind her. A member of the Resistance stood at the foot of the dune, looking up at her.
She slid down the dune on her feet swiftly- something that took much practice to do correctly. It was useful in this treacherous terrain.
"Yes?" She looked inquisitively at the young boy standing there. He shyly held out a few strips of dried fruit. Kesa received them gladly and patted the boy on the head. He grinned and ran off to his tent.
Kesari smiled faintly and continued on. As came to her tent, she whispered a few words to one of the Resistance members standing nearby. He nodded and set off to collect all the other Resistance members for a meeting. Some of the people living in the dunes were simply there for the protection, and wanted nothing to do with the Resistance. The ones in the Resistance should be collected within a half-hour or so. Meanwhile, Kesari unrolled the map of Ahkia and looked over the plans.
If this didn't work...
Well, Kesari didn't want to think about that.
