Clouds swirled overhead and drums beat in the dim light. Erasa’s hurried steps crunched compacting the snow further. She was late and her eyes were frozen on the trail cut previously.

The footprints in the snow suddenly ended. She rubbed her hands frowning. The drums echoed maddeningly off the valley’s walls. No help there.

“I know which way they went.” The voice whispered. Spinning, Erasa watched the snow spiral.

Great. A snow spirit. “Which way?”

The swirl of snow moved against the wind. “That way.”

“Thanks.” Erasa headed the opposite direction. Snow spirits. It should’ve known she wouldn’t trust it.
