While running through the thicket and the woods, the quadruplet came across a glade with a stream.
After the leader sat on a log, he realized how despondent his fellow siblings were.
"Let's rest for five minutes only, then we shall be on our way." the leader said looking at his feet
The other children stared at their leader, unsure if they had the temerity to speak against his word.
"Maybe we won't have to go through this humiliation in our new state." the tallest quadruplet said.
They knew that this was only a slight possibility of happening, but they would take their chances. They had been previously running from the mob.
A mob that threatened their family that they would be lynched.
In the bushes, south to the group, they heard the loud cracking sound of a fire.
"Don your robes and bags again, now we must set out into the woods." the leader declared putting on his leather bag.
When they set out again, they would need to endure the heat of the approaching flame and the threat of a mod.
