«In virgin land everything can belong to you until the one who decides otherwise arrives, avoiding it will not be easy for any of you, but someone will have to take charge»The Messenger
By Ariadne Gallardo Figueroa
Dayami promptly and diligently made her know to Zila that they had help in their journey, an ally that exceeds the strength of an entire army and who at the same time could go unnoticed by some humans who were not aware of their presence.
Having supernatural beings as allies is a spectacular detail but the difficulties would come when the trees of the lush forest were discovered by the nearby inhabitants cut down without any permission … Even if no one needed their firewood, their fruits, food or their shade to shelter, all of them they would be upset if a group of strangers took the liberty of getting good wood for their own task.
They did not have adequate tools to cut them, that night while they were meditating under the cover of the fire they understood that what Patricio was proposing was a delusional idea of madmen.
Diego with despondency and scratching his head explained the complexity of everything that they proposed:
-We would have to make tools and hide the wood in some area not easily accessible to those who live in the nearest town, to avoid discover us; We cannot make a galéon, simply something simple that will take us to a port in the middle of the journey.
Jacobo pointed out confused:
-The wide sea is not the same as browsing the coastline, the only one who knows if there are islands from which to grab us is Dayami and the only one who can see what she has seen is Zila.
They all turned to see their partner who, shocked, did not respond and frowned as he replied:
-She spoke within me and told me that all of us will have a powerful ally when we find ourselves in marine waters; It is not much what she said and I do not know if I can invoke her to give me answers that perhaps even she does not know. If Patricio gave us the idea, he is the one who should tell us how to execute it.
With a demanding attitude, everyone’s gazes fell on Patricio, who opened his eyes very wide and put a hand to the back of his neck and moved his eyes from side to side under the glow of the campfire:
-The only thing I don’t want is getting on the boat of a bastard who enforces me to follow his rules and demands me clean the vomit from the deck of all the guys who don’t know how to sail.
They all laughed out loud, and Evaristo calmed their spirits by saying:
-Brothers if it is in our veins to be navigators we are going to achieve it, I agree, someone else’s boat will take the course that he proposes, ours never. When he said this he launched a handful of earth to the campfire and just at this moment, a forest slope cracked, it trembled and three mighty trees, without human help, dropped down, rumbling with force not far from where they were.
Zila got up enthusiastically and, beating his chest, shouted joyfully: «
Something superior to us is working in our favour!»
When someone tells you that forces are acting in your favour, don’t hesitate, just look for evidence around you and proceed.
