Ties of Friendship? (Working Title) Ch04Today, there was a huge sandstorm.Ties of Friendship? (Working Title) Ch04 by JC303
Troll and I had no choice but to take shelter in some more ruins until the storm passes. It was blowing over pretty hard, and since it’s been quite a few hours that this went on, I had to assume this was probably gonna be going on for the rest of the day. We’d have to spend the night here.
So I set up the tent and Troll sat inside it so the sand wouldn’t get in his fur. The ruins did manage to block a good portion of the storm, but not all of it after all. I sat inside with him, so that the two of us could stay relatively untouched by the storm. The tent shook with the wind from the storm, but it stayed firmly on the ground, thankfully.
Troll was a little freaked out by the tent shaking, and I had to constantly comfort him and reassure him the tent wasn’t going to blow over with us in it. He even poked back at the tent when it shook. That seemed to amuse him for the time being while we sat there. I just laid on my back, and I w

Eventually I was able to get up and moving. It turns out that Troll managed to get us to a town, and more specifically, I had been resting at their hospital.
Troll was so relieved to see that I recovered completely, and he was back to his happy self finally. It was good to see him back to his old self after that scare. He’s actually grown on me a little bit, so it cheered me up to see him so happy again.
During my recovery, I kept thinking about his condition. I kept wondering if he really remembered what happened. He called them black outs, so he shouldn’t remember much…
Then at some point, I asked him, “Hey, how did you get me here in the first place?”
“Troll doesn’t remember much,” he said. “All Troll remembers is Pumpkin Girl getting hurt, and Troll wanting to help her. Then when Troll came back, Pumpkin Girl was safe in bed with bandages!”
“Really?” I said. “You mean, no one saw you ta

Troll marveled at how I was able to wrap up the tent and all my stuff and gather it all together to carry with my backpack. I even let him try to pick it up and he whined about how heavy it was. I just laughed and told him I was used to carrying it all the time and he wasn’t, so that’s why it probably felt really heavy to him.
Plus, he didn’t look like the strong type of monster to me. He was a bit scrawny looking, after all.
He looked well enough to start travelling, so we went ahead and got back on the dirt path to make our way through the desert. I hope the little guy didn’t overheat with all that fur. I started wondering why a creature would have fur out here in the desert. Then I wondered if maybe his kind traveled better at night when it was cold, so their fur keeps warm.
Y’know, I just might start keeping a journal and record everything I notice about Troll. If I get down all these observations and get to a town, I mig
