    He moved stealthily through the lush jungle surrounding the tall, narrow structure. Years of tracking his quarry from one place to another had kept Meys lithe and quick of wit, traits Adolar, his apprentice, could have used at that moment. Of course, if Meys wished to be fair, Adolar was also hampered by the fact that he carried the most precious piece of equipment they had. The key, in fact, to success or failure after all this time.
