Rebel was grazing on greener grass like crazy.  He was still saddled and I was on his back.  My head was not stuffed with cotton.  

“Sylva,” I called.

No answer.

I shifted my weight and slid off of Rebel.

My feet caught me.  I leaned on Rebel.  He seemed to understand this and let me, even leaning into me for support.  “Thanks buddy,” I said to the horse.  I scanned the horizon.  It would mace sense if Sylva had seen berries that she would head towards them.  No, but there was a manor.  I would bet anything that she was there.  Another though immediately nagged me, why was I here if she was there.

Something twitched on the ground and got my attention.  It was Sylva.  I was already tired enough to have my head spinning.  Her lips were parched.  I felt mine.  They were not as bad.  She had been giving me all the water, and not taken any for herself.  I stumbled over to her.

“Time to get to the manor,” I whispered to myself.  I wrapped my arms under her.  My strength was failing me.  I reached in and found a flame.  I let it spread through me.  With a grunt I lifted her on to Rebels back.  My legs buckled immediately after.

I waited for my breathing to steady before I got up with the help of Rebel.  Then we started walking to the manor.  One step every half minute, it was slow going.  Each step was an act of will.  Will to survive, will to save Sylva, and will for a chance at a new life.  Even with this and Rebel nugging me in the right direction when we got to the gate, I lost it.  I just could not keep going.  No warning, I just dropped.  But we were at the manor, with a high chance of being helped.  Even my pride admitted that we needed it desperately.
