” A lone wolf never survives on his own.”
They would have prepared for a longer search if they had specific details of his whereabouts. But for the last week, he kept talking about the Abyss. Something in here had his attention. Whatever the rumor or the mystery, their friend did not share. Surely, he would not travel many miles on his own to find out. Nor would he leave his trusted companions. A lone wolf never survives on his own.
One day was all they allotted for this rescue mission. Unless fortune did indeed favor the foolish, they prepared only the essentials for this journey. Food and gear for a week, with one of those days being in the Abyss. Now, as they sat huddled at the crossroads of the underground maze, they thought that a day would be both too long and not long enough to complete their mission. Each of them had already given up hope of finding their friend. But they would not admit it openly.
