They ditched the skiff a little way from the port, not wishing to draw attention to themselves. The skiff would surely not only mark them as outsiders, but possibly fugitives. Which, technically, they were, at least until they knew the outcome of the power struggle back in Themiscyra.
“We should find shelter,” David said, looking up at the sky. Dark ominous clouds gathered overhead, a storm was coming in from the Aegean. “We can look for passage tomorrow.”
Emma held tight to Killian’s hand. “I do not know this place,” she said regretfully. “But I agree.”
Killian said nothing, frustrated that their delay was his doing. Between tending his fever and trying to sate his hunger with meager game and berries, they lost a whole day. On the surface, it did not seem like much but the fall season brought storms to the Aegean and they had a long journey ahead to Porphyris. No one spoke of how precisely they would book passage on a ship or if David was coming with them. Killian sometimes caught his friend staring into space, torment in his blue eyes. Elsa? None of them knew if their benefactor was alive or dead; Killian could see the guilt of that weighing on his friend.
