Luna didn't know where they were going, but they carried on. She hoped that they would eventually come to the border with Videnien and with luck there would be no imperial soldiers in that country. They went on and on; the road seemed to be endless and Midar was tired.


Suddenly they heard the sound of horse's hooves. Luna grasped Midar's hand and rushed into the forest. They hid behind the spiny branches of a big tree while a wagon loaded with wood went slowly past. Luna held her breath when she saw that the driver was wearing imperial uniform, but she instantly ran out and jumped on the back of the wagon and motioned to Midar to do the same. He had no choice and they hid among the piles of wood. They were worried that the driver would find them, but he hadn't noticed anything. Luna squeezed her amber stone and hoped it would protect them.
