I’ve been riding hard for days now. I’m not sure how much longer the mare will last. She is a kind gentle thing and I’ve pushed her to her limits. I feel bad but there is more at stake here. I know with Lilith’s determination she would stop at nothing if the roles were reversed. That’s why I have to push harder. I’ve only stopped now because I’m afraid that if I don’t let the horse rest she’ll collapse. If that happens I won’t catch up to Lilith, so I’m letting the mare rest just for a bit.
