While Jones and I explored the village, Hixon and Simmons went to investigate something interesting they saw. Simmons said that the multi-rooted tree looked like a structure with a statue in the middle. I laughed at Hixon’s description of a “sinuous man with outstretched arms, three sets of eyes and a long, pointed beard.”
Simmons and Hixon were long overdue, so, through the interpreters, we asked their whereabouts.
The interpreters must have misunderstood. It was just gibberish thanking us for the sacrifice and, since their god was satiated, for sparing one of their own.
Simmons and Hixon are still missing.
Word count = 100
My opinion, ones you hear “Hixon’s” description of the tree, you can’t un-see it ;)
