Meat felt their fear with an intimacy that was all too common in this new age. Stirring memories of his own early childhood, of panicked flight through dark passages that led to a lone house decaying at the edge of an overgrown field that had overwhelmed a once manicured lawn. He moaned as the image of that house flashed through his thoughts and he knelt down to disguise the sudden weakness in his knees. He couldn’t let the others see his fear. He slipped off his battered felt hat and wiped his brow, the sun warm against his closely cropped scalp.
On the ground all around him were the signs of their passage. An overturned rock here, the shaft of a weed bent at an unnatural angle there, a pile of decaying leaves disturbed by hurried steps. Small signs that taken alone meant very little, but when added to the others scattered about wrote a tale of hurried desperation.
His shadow stretched out before him as the sun continued its daily trek to the west, his shadow pointing East, into an unknown world. There were a few hours left before the night forced them to stop and make camp, time better spent closing the distance between them and their quarry.
To his left a riotous explosion of green overwhelmed the chill of winters past with springs promise of rebirth. Confirmation that life would go on no matter what, following the cycles of the seasons that had taken the place of the calendars of old. The days were no longer measured in weeks, or months, but by the coming and going of the sun and moon, and the passing of the seasons.
