They just needed to follow the river east and then continue with it as it curved south. That's what he remembered and kept telling himself. Only, he was still a little confused about east and west, and for the first few hours, he hadn't been completely sure they were going in the right direction. He didn't want to worry Spook or let him down, so he just kept leading them farther and farther from home, hoping they were actually travelling east. Relief coursed through him when he noticed the water turn a gross, brown color. He definitely remembered this from the last time he had gone this way. He laughed a little nervously and turned to his friend. I need to confess that I wasn't sure we were going to right way until just now. He looked away and laughed nervously again. But the brown water means we are, he continued. Hopefully, Spook wouldn't be upset and would be too distracted by the fact that they were now for sure going the right way. He stopped and looked down at the river. I wonder why it's so brown? he asked. Maybe someone had filled Spook in on it at some point.

And so here they were, out adventuring at last! Let's be real, for the first hour or so, Spook was probably more on edge than was reasonable. He wasn't sure if something bad was going to happen or if Arbiter was gonna change her mind or what. But nothing did happen, so eventually he started feeling better.

Spook didn't seem to mind too much that Pheiros hadn't been sure. He wagged his tail, just glad that they were on the track to start, Better than I would have done, still! I think I came here once before too -- but I didn't stay very long, I went right back home. It was sort of a vague memory, but maybe he dreamed it up. Nobody had bugged him that day. He had been here, right? He looked around, but some time had passed so it all seemed weird now.

Spook wandered to the water's edge, looking down at the water too, I dunno. It looks pretty gross though. His nose wrinkled, Is it even safe to drink? I never tried it. It had seemed fine when they were wandered by it a while ago... But maybe just this section was unsafe. It wasn't like Spook had a great idea of what was normal for it. Before he didn't care, he just headed back to the forest and all was good there.
