Chapter 3

Part 1

Magnum woke up first – likely a fly woke him up, or a bad dream about monkeys which he hated above all – and neighed loud enough to also wake up James who then rubbed his eyes and sat up straight. He first looked over at Tom who was still fast asleep, then at the sky above. “Get up, son! No time to lose. We must’ve been out for a couple hours at least.”

Tom grunted and turned over, but at last opened his eyes and witnessed how low the sun had already gotten. “Ah shit. Three, four hours?”

“Judging by the sun, it appears so, yeah. Come on, get up and let’s get going. As much as I hated riding in the scorching sun, I sure as hell don’t want to be riding in pitch black.”

The two picked up all their stuff – placing their guns back into their holsters – and climbed into the saddles. Simultaneously, they kicked their horses under their ribs and before they knew it, they were back on their way toward the anti-magic dome, this time with the sun shining at their backs.

They were both full and feeling more tired than rested, so they remained quiet – each in his own tranquil state of mind.
