You decide to see if there are any other cave entrances around. If you can find a secure enough place, you might be able to get some rest. At the least, though, it’s a hiding spot that shouldn’t draw the attention of the wagon thieves.
You find one soon enough. It doesn’t seem to extend very far, but that’s all the better for you; you don’t have to worry about people crawling in from the cave depths.
You lie down on the cavern floor and just let your strength slowly return. You don’t dare go to sleep, but at least you’re not exerting yourself too much now.
Suddenly, you hear a loud noise outside. About a minute later, you hear something unmistakable.
It’s the sounds of battle.
What are you going to do?
Why would there be a battle? The village was so secluded, and there’s no way your comrades knew where to find you. This fight doesn’t involve you so keep it that way.
Doesn’t mean you can’t evesdrop and try to pick out how many are fighting and what language they speak.
