“Good work.” Jack studied the marks in the thin ribbon of dirt. “There are plenty of other footprints too.”
“It’s a game trail,” Nessa said. “But not the same one we started out following.”
“More animals use this one,” Tenspot said. “Maybe it leads to water.”
“You mean Harey really does know where a spring is?” Jack asked.
“I wouldn’t be surprised,” Nessa said. “Animals can smell water.”
She took Tenspot’s sandwich wrapping. She walked across the clearing, retrieved the knapsack, and scooped up her uneaten sandwich, then Jack’s, and put both inside, along with the two cans of soda. When she came back, she handed the knapsack to Jack.
“I wish the little stinker hadn’t run off,” she said.
Jack shouldered the knapsack. “We will find him.”
