"You know what the plan is!"
"No, I mean, what's the Seer going to do? Can we trust him?"
"It's a bit late to raise this now! He won't let us down."
"You better be right about that," the scout says. Both of them are ignoring Inric, who is sitting less than five feet away, well within earshot.
On the road, Wil trudges along beside his guard. All ten of them are tense now.
