    Those wolves still bared their teeth in growls. The wolves did not move toward the men still as they backed up, most of them yelling and waving their arms, the one big one holding the spread out structure and waving it, while Fazibar went facing forward in that direction. Some way further after the wolves were left dozens of feet further back, Fazibar said, "We are coming up to the edge over that canyon. I think we can manage the slope here, but you should all face forward to do so."

    Jorald said, "Then let us go quickly. I do not think we should wait facing the wolves still. But there will be a messy battle if they come at us from behind as we go down that way."

    Eldubar said, "I will still look back as you go down before me, and I would say so if those wolves move still toward us."

    The others looked down over the edge of this oddly shaped canyon, which went around, with that lake in the middle at the bottom. It was at a slant here, just barely manageable at the top, but more manageable a little way further down.

    Jorald and Parbesald went first, and found the first couple of steps steep enough that they had to run there so as not to skid that way and go uncontrollably further. The steepness decreased after that and they managed to slow down and stop. Once they did they looked back. Two others were coming right after them and then Fazibar and Eldubar came. As Jorald watched, he saw the heads of the two wolves peer over the ledge of the cliff above.

    The others came to where Jorald and Parbesald stood. Jorald said, "Be ready with your blades. The wolves are there watching us." The others turned and looked up, then seeing them.

    As they watched, the two wolves looked down towards them for a while from the top of that slanted cliff that went around this canyon. Then they turned and moved out of sight from those men watching from below. Jorald and those with him watched in that direction for some while still, but wolves or any other creature did not show up there anymore.

    Fazibar said, "How are we going to return that way with the metal we would return with, I wonder."

    Parbesald said, "You and Eldubar are lighter and could go up again ahead of us. Two of the rest would go up, one at a time, and you would be up there to help the first one, who would help up the second one. The other two here could lift the carrying structure with the metal so that those up there who are carrying it too would reach it and pull it up the rest of the way. Then the last two could climb out."

    Jorald said, "Even if the snakes we encountered would move and no longer be where we found them, how can we avoid going through the area where wolves such as the ones we saw would go after us?"

    Parbesald said, "I do not know. It may be that we need to turn up there to go another way around their grounds."

    They turned shortly to look down they would need to go, toward the small lake in the middle of that canyon. Jorald said then, "Look! I did not notice that it was so cloudy. Those are thick dark clouds that can bring rain. And the wind is picking up. Could it not be that we may have a storm coming?"

    Parbesald said, "And where could we go? We are out in this canyon to get something, let us go on and get it now."

    Jorald saw there was nothing else they could do. So they all went on further down the slope, until they were at the bottom where the ground, dry and dusty, with some of the dust being blown about now, leveled off. They went on toward the lake.

    Fazibar said, "It was described as being by the edge of this lake. It had been seen, so we should see it if we look."

    Meanwhile, in the area by the river beyond the gardening grounds of the Primary Vorrongan settlement Benorken told Mehlika. "Begin mornings with nettle tea from what you can gather here. When brewed as a tea it is medicinal and helps with comforting oneself. Nettle stimulates an internal system in us and we gain futher immunity. Nettle relieves arthritis. I found it strengthens the unborn in pregnant women and promotes milk production in the new mothers. And it gives relief to those with periods and helps with their cramps and bloating. It reduces inflammation, and constipation. It lessens nausea. It destroys parasites. It helps with breathing problems. It can be used in rituals for more effect. And here you will see other herbaceous growth that can also be used in rituals effectively. This here is nightshade, which we will handle carefully. But first do you have questions yet?"
