you are travelling through a forest
to reach the next town and deliver the letter you are keeping under your breastplate.
The fauna thickens as you make it further until the slash of your blade is needed to advance. The night is already beginning to dawn
but soon a clearing begins to form as the trees begin to part from side to side revealing a cave,
you take a deep breath and venture forth at a steady pace into the cave,
sword raised hopefull that it will be safe to rest in.
