Under the influence of the tea I slept soundly and was up early. I had a scheme in mind but it would require another trip to the friendly local alchemist, I need to plan more carefully to avoid this kind of back-tracking. This time I hired two guards and a guide. They gave me some curious looks about my request given my simple clothing but I gave them a story about needing help with “female issues” and they quickly lost interest. I didn’t want to waste time arguing about borrowing another dress and it was a poor disguise at best, I need to work on getting some better tools for that sort of thing.
I think I spotted the worg at one point watching from afar but nothing harassed us on the way out. Eedraxis was even more cantankerous than the last time, he seemed disturbed by the presence of my escort, but he calmed down enough to sell me fire jackal saliva. My three new friends and I hustled back to town before nightfall and realizing that I hadn’t eaten all day and feeling magnanimous I treated the four of us to a fine meal which wiped out the last of my funds.
Turning in I cursed myself for wasting a day going back to buy what I could have gotten the first time. Tomorrow is make or break. I used another dose to tea to ensure a good, and short, night’s sleep.
