Feedback welcome. Thanks!
Still looking for more beta readers; if interested, email me at abehrhardt [at] gmail.
End of previous scene, followed by the link to the new scene:
She waved him off, forcing her voice light. “Haven’t had today’s hike.” Her eyes followed the black figure until it vanished around a curve. Can I promise a haven?

Her knees insisted she sit on a stump. Mount Fire had grown to twice as high.
