Willem nodded. "Which means, if I am not mistaken, that you, as Isaac's closest living relative...are now the leader of the League of Forestmen."
Location: Dark Forest Trail
It was the following day. The group walked along the trail in clumps; Bjarn in the lead, followed by Willem and Graygon who were muttering to each other, then Rodurik, Marcus and Rosa, followed by Shainya and Dale, who were talking, and lastly, Reno, Aros, Alex and Luxus.
They had traveled a several more miles in this manner before they came to a clearing. Willem peered up at the patch of sky visible through the trees and said "It's about midday. Let's stop for a bite to eat."
A 'bite to eat' was about all everyone got. Marcus chewed a chunk of stale bread, looking worried.
"We won't last long on this grub..." he muttered to Rodurik.
The blacksmith shrugged his broad shoulders, saying nothing. He was not hungry and had given his share to Rosa who had swallowed it whole gratefully.
Dale was playing some chords on his battered guitar and humming and tune; Shainya smiled and began to hum as well. Reno left where Luxus was chatting with Aros and Alex and plumped himself down by Bjarn, who was sitting alone away from the group.
"That Dale fellowed...he seems an untrustworthy type to me...don't you think...?" he asked the old Forestman.
Bjarn pushed aside the thoughts of leading the League of Forestmen and grinned at Reno.
"I wound't say that...he saved Shainya you know..."
"No, YOU saved her." replied Reno, peeved.
Bjarn did not argue the point. He grinned.
