Vigilance

Posted on

“Malena led her troop along the high wind-scoured spine of the star-shaped dune. It stood slightly higher than its neighbours and afforded an ample view all around. The Sadusi, as always in the desert, walked in single file or “salamander” as they called it. Their numbers could thus be easily disguised from unwelcome pursuit as tracks were laid on top of each other, confusing any would-be trackers. Spying eyes would also not be able to make out numbers from vast and deceptive distances.”
