“How many barrows of this stuff are there, Dulap?” pants Silhouine, who is starting to get a bit cross.
“Just a few more!” says Dulap. “Oh, and then the barrels on the cart. Do you have a pack animal we could hitch up to–”
“No,” says Silhouine flatly.
“Um,” says Dulap.
“It’s getting dark,” says Yael. “Look, Dulap and I can pull the cart together if Silhouine can manage the barrow, but we don’t want to do it by starlight.”
“I’ve got a lantern,” says Dulap.
“Good,” says Silhouine, brushing red-brown powder off her nose. “I’ll get some candles, too.”
