“You can’t even see the end of it,” Kai pleaded with Talia. “How do you even know something’s out there?”
“The only way really is to just go,” Talia hefted her rucksack over one shoulder. She packed food, water, spare clothes, and a blanket.
“There is no record of anyone returning after attempting a crossing,” Kai tugged at Talia’s sleeve.
“If Moksha is on the other side, why would I return?” Talia hugged Kai with her free arm. “All I have is hope that the legends are true. Just wish me luck, Kai.”
“I can’t, I’ll say, ‘see you later’.”
