CONNEMARA FEENEY & TAYLOR DAVIES
THE HEART STONE OF AFRICA
The start of this adventure can be found here. http://ifitwasntforone.blogspot.ie/2017/03/connemara-feeney-taylor-davies-prelude.html
A half days hike brought them to the banks of the river, with the plan been to follow it downstream.
Boswel:"Now that we have our bearings it would be wise to stay back about a half a mile or so from the river as it turns & twists a lot in this section & there no point in adding miles on to our journey & beside river edges are always dangerous places"
Weber:"Then why in hell did you bring us down here sir ? & would it not be quicker & easier for everyone if say yourself & the co-pilot pushed on while the rest of us remained for a few days till you returned for us in boats, as I really don't think Maud is up to hiking for a couple of days in this heat & terrain.
Boswel:" An't none of you experienced enough to survive out here on your own for that length of time, this place isn't like a Sunday afternoon stroll in the Black-forest you know, it will be much safer for us all to stay together even if a bit slower"
Weber:" Well of all the ....
Dufour:" Hold your horse's there sir, Boswel know's more about this land then the rest of us put together & as I'm in charge of getting us all back in one piece I'm doing what ever Mr Boswel thinks is best so were all hiking out together"
"This is going to be a very interesting few days" Connie whispered to Taylor giggling
Taylor:" I agree, I think Herr Weber is more use to barking out orders then having to follow them & while he keeps saying he doesn't think Maud is up to the journey I've the feeling he doesn't fancy it himself"
Connie:" Look over there Taylor aren't they magnificent ? I think I'm starting to fall in love with Africa"
Connie:" That reminds me, if you'll excuse me Taylor"
As Connie rounded a bush something twinkling in the sunlight caught her eye, as she moved towards it she noticed it was coming from a skeleton of a person that was lying on the ground mostly covered by the undergrowth
Connie:" Hey you guys over here I've found something" she called out.
Boswel:" See what I mean about this been a dangerous place ? I wonder what happen to this poor soul ?"
Taylor:"Best see if there's anything that can tells us who he was, looking under the bush they find an old leather carry pouch.
Dufour:" Well at least we know who he was" he says putting them them back into that pouch with the other stuff.
Defouf" We'll hand it over to the authorities when we get back, now if everyone is ready I think it time to push on"
Maud:" Surly we're not going to leave here without burying the poor man ?"
Later on after they set up camp.
Connie:" Taylor I've something to tell you that I didn't want to say in front of the others"
Taylor:" I thought as much you've not been yourself since you found Peeters, come spit it out "
Taylor:" You done right, keep it out of sight & we'll report it when we get back"
Connie:" Don't you want to see it?"
Taylor:" I'll see it when it's safe to do so but for now you just keep it out of sight, it's getting dark we best get back to the camp"
