Before Dawn

Ezra hummed softly to himself as he moved through the trees. He shivered slightly and stooped to catch up a piece of wood. He added it to the bundle of sticks under his arm.

He felt so alone and frightened. Normally, humming to himself helped. Tonight, it didn’t seem to be helping at all. He sighed and then flinched when a hand touched his shoulder. “Morgan,” he said, when he saw who it was that had touched him.

She smiled faintly. “I’m beginning to wonder what you’re really running away from, Ezra,” she said. “Is it really Keller’s men anymore?”

“Maybe it’s just my past,” Ezra said, shrugging and shaking his head. “I don’t know anymore.”
