Luke stared at the boy for a long moment before he started to laugh. "You're insane... Aren't you?" He managed to get the words out between breaths and laughs. "How in the name of the heaven and stars did that happen?"
Luke shook his head again with another small chuckle, he picked up the saddle and tossed it up onto Bria's back. He made very perfectly practiced moves to cinch up the saddle quickly. "You know how to saddle a horse? Ambi isn't used to being ridden without one, even if you are."
Luke pulled on his saddle and then tightened the cinch once more, all horses had a habit of sucking in a lot of extra air when the cinch was wrapped around their waist to try and keep it from being a tight fit when they exhaled. "I'll put out the fire then we can move on." He said tugging his beautiful mare's forlock out from under the bridle. He let her mane stay long, he'd never cut it or shaved a bridle path in her long locks.
Luke moved from Bria running his fingers through his own unruly hair now, as he moved toward the fire. He picked up a pretty good sized rock and after kicking some dirt over the low flames he dropped the large stone on top of it to hide that there had been a fire there at all. "Mount up, time to go." He said with a quick wave of his hand, then moved up beside Bria and with a quick hop he pulled himself up into the saddle and pulled up on the reigns turn his mare towards a narrow and overgrown path.
Luke gentle nudged Bria into a slow walk, careful of the overgrown trail they were having to take. Low branches and large bushes reached over the once paved path, not it was broken stones with roots and weeds growing up through them. As they went deeper into the woods there was a small, once beautifully white temple to the right cut into the mountain side. The white marble was now covered with over grown weeds and greens and browns of moss.
Luke barely spared a glance at the old temple as he and Bria made their way over the broken road head down the mountain side.
