So Ned was given leave to rejoin his family in Sabrán,
“Bub Green Feather band have pelts.” Ned felt a chill. Their band had encountered the Green Feather band once before, long ago, when they were traveling. Bub had raped Flo and then driven them away. But he did not reveal his recognition. He and Jes were unlikely to be recognized, because the episode had been brief, and the two of them had grown since then.

It was too late to go back to work, but they would do so the next day.
