Jadir wished he knew how to battle such beasts, but the strong, tall walls of his home prevented any practical training. All he could do was to follow this woman and trust his life to her. Who was she and where was she taking him?
Around the next bend in the path, the woman pulled him into a grove of twenty foot bamboo. The woman pulled back a makeshift door and they ducked inside. Once she pushed the door back there was no sign they were even there. She held her finger up to her lips to signify she wanted him to be silent.
