"I don't have anything like that. I'll wait here and you should go get a wagon," Jill said.

"Got it," said Tom.  "Be careful out here, though."

He hurried back towards town, flickering as he took shortcuts through reality.

"Ah, finally!" Jill said. "I had to chase off some weird dog-like things."

"Sorry to keep you waiting," said Tom.  "Now, let's get the dragon loaded."

After some effort and spells, the drake was loaded onto the wagon.

"Okay!" said Tom.  "Back into town, then, and hope we get paid for this!"

...They surely would, wouldn't they?

"Okay," said Tom.  "So... that way, according to our directions, right?"

"Right," Jill said.

A cold wind suddenly blew through the forest making the leaves rustle.

Tom didn't like that.  He drew his blade and looked around.

"...Huh," said Tom.  "Well, that way, I guess..."

It was in the back of his head that they might want to find more party members one of these days... but they might get called crazy, if they were the only ones who knew about the world they'd come from.  Or whatever this was.

As you walk for a bit, the leaves suddenly fall silent.

It wasn't just the wind, everything and gone silent. Something was clearly wrong.

"...Something bad is coming," said Tom, standing with blade drawn, his back against Jill's.  "Get ready..."

"Now what are you doing in my new home?" a woman's voice asked, but you can't see her.

Politeness seemed the order of the day.

"Well, ma'am," said Tom, "we came here to locate the remains of some fallen explorers and bring them back home.  We aren't looking for trouble, but we need to bring them back."

"But the dared to enter without my permission...a lot like you two have," the voice said, it seemed to be shifting around as it spoke.

"Well, that's all well and good," said Tom, "but you haven't exactly marked your territory, have you?  Just attacking people who wandered in isn't being a good neighbor.  Good neighbors talk things through first..."

"Well, ma'am," said Tom, "you tried talking instead of just fighting, so I had this idea that maybe we could be reasonable about this instead of violent."

"Well, while we're just talking, there's no point in violence," said Tom.  "And I'll just go on forward and get the people we came here to get.  And then if you try and stop us, well..."

He shrugged.

"You'll find out, I guess.  Sorry.  Got reasons to be confident; not going to explain them to someone who's being hostile."
