Long before the sun rose, the Lord of Arms woke Shade by screaming into his head. The Lord of Arms screamed for Shade too awaken. Shade asked what was wrong and the Lord of Arms replied that the gem that they were closest to was being moved south, toward Tyr.
Shade groaned and rose. He woke the rest of the group, except for Alaxander who was keeping watch, and told them what the Lord of Arms had told him. They were upset and did not want to abandon the slaves. The Lord of Arms said that the Ogre Doom kills more slaves everyday than live in the village. In addition, the gem was now in someone's possession who could track the group.

Kalino and Jessel used their giant lizard hide to drag everyone, and their equipment, away from the battlefield. They traveled on top of the canyon walls, so their movement was slow going and they often ran into deep canyons that were impassable. Jessel led them to a dead end canyon with a large rocky overhang to hide from the sun and scouts.
They laid everyone out and set up a temporary triage, with Jessel serving as their healer. Kalino nervously kept watch. When camp was set up and secure, Kalino laid down and fell asleep. Jessel barely managed to stay awake to keep watch.
