On the road again

Well, there is nothing to stay for now, she thought as she turned to gaze at the bakery, now empty with widows boarded shut. Finneas had left the week before, having used the money from his paintings to purchase a mule that would carry his supplies and remaining artwork back to his family in Wainden. Something about the artist reminded her of a tale her mother Lydia had once told her; a story from the scriptures. She shook her head, Poor Finneas, I hope he finds what he’s looking for.
Gathering up her courage, along with her bundle, quiver, and bow, Daelia turned south and began to walk. She did not know where she was going, but felt certain she would know when she got there.

Finally, Chapter 5 of Daelia is available for reading!
