"Oi lass!" Angus called out to Najila. "I think I might have found yer--"
Before Angus could even finish that sentence, let alone step away from the book, Najila swiftly sprinted over and grabbed the book, as if her life depended on that very tome. The veils flew behind her like they were her own version of clouds. Once the tome was in her hands again, she felt a great weight lift itself off of her shoulders. The relief can be seen on her face, as she genuinely smiles at Angus, "You have my gratitude, Ironbane. I shudder to think that elf almost escaped with my tome in hand,"
After saying that, she immediately started to inspect her tome. The thought that the elf might have done something to the Book of Clouds did concern her. She first checked the bookmark to see if she received any new messages during her time apart from the Tome. If the clouds in the bookmark are roiling, she would immediately open the book to the bookmarked page. If not, then she would quickly flip through the pages to make sure that there wasn't any damage or additional marks made by that Sarfyr character.
Once that was done, she would notice that Angus took the Cloak of Protection. As much as she wanted it, she knew now wasn't really the time to discuss it. She wondered if she could persuade the barbarian, and how she could. She started mentally recalling the novels where characters tried to persuade people stronger than them...
She muttered as she recognized one of the corpses, "Tenkern..." Had he been working with these people? Was the reason why she was hired was so that she and the rest of the caravan could be kidnapped?
Regardless of the answer, Najila decided to take his pouch of gold. The group could certainly use that money in the future.
She listened as Aron and Nadir spoke. After Angus gave his answer, Najila answers, "I have no preference either. I suspect that all of us will be staying with each other for quite some time,"
She then cleared her throat and she asks, "Since we'll be resting here, it looks like I have some work. I shall set up an alarm here...unless anyone else has a better idea as to where an alarm should be placed? It would be good to have should any enemies come after us while we rest,"
