not all places we lay down our heads, are dangerous. sometimes, after a long day of wandering, we find one of the old places abandoned by another bolo, left behind by our ancestors. it often only needs careful check for traps, guarding against unwanted visitors and warming up… and we end up with the comfort of four walls.

it lifts the mood of everyone to find such shelters and to spend the night inside. the dimmed noises of rain or storm outside suddenly looses its threatening edge, the screams of those creatures trying to get at us during outdoor nights do scare me less and even my body feels better when awaking hungry after sleeping on these strange, springy constructs the elders call “a bed”. sometimes when i sleep on the ground, soaked by rain and freezing after the fire dimmed down, i even dream of “a bed”. cozy place i wish we had more often.

but then there are shelters which are infested, forbidden to enter, abandoned for good reason; those are the places to fall asleep only once. creepers do live here and dwell on their victims. a shelter they are for those only who die. i saw one of them once… and escaped it's wrath on a margin; to be scolded for weeks by me'tal who saved me.
