“Um, if it helps, I don’t have any weapons on me,” you say. “I lost the only one I had.”

For the moment, you don’t care to explain¬†how you lost it. Or that you only really need something to throw. And bringing up the magic seems especially ill-advised.

They continue talking to each other. There must be some kind of argument. After a few minutes, the smaller one produces a length of rope.

“Um, we’re walking? What about the wagon?” you ask.

The one-armed woman glares at you. You’re pretty sure she’s wondering how you know about that.

“I was in it when I arrived. I, um, followed you for a bit. I don’t mean any harm, I just want to know what’s going on.”

This seems to start the discussion between the two again. You get the distinct feeling they’re arguing with each other, but you already gave yourself up. What’s even left to argue about? You don’t have any idea.

You wonder if you should call their attention to that. You’re certainly curious about it yourself.
