Richard

Off to see the Wizard (Richard, Tom)

"I hope I am too." Richard had a feeling he was but of course he couldn't know for sure. They continued walking. Richard looked at the ground in front of them and the area on either side of the path. So far there were no signs anyone had been this way recently. He had seen footprints near the shore but the ground changed near the jungle and he didn't think they would show up there. "I saw tracks near where we tied up the boat," he said. "I haven't seen any since though. That could be on account of the ground." He paused.
Nodding again, Tom hoped they picked up a trail soon.
"Or it's possible they didn't come this way."
Tom looked at Richard. "Then we might be going the wrong way."
Richard shook his head. "I don't think so," he said. He knew there was always the possibility that was the case but he didn't think it was likely. "The camp is the most logical place for them to have taken Ben." There were other places they could have gone but they were low on his list of options if the survivors were involved in this. "There are other ways they could have gone besides this." He looked at Tom. "It makes sense to at least check the camp to rule it out."
