Raneld walked purposefully through the wood, collecting bag slung over her left shoulder, and bow over her right, pausing now and then to enjoy the sights and smell of the woods. She checked the base of the trees carefully; “Nothing here, nothing here. Ah there's one”. Removing a trowel from her collecting bag, Raneld carefully began to dig up the plant, taking care not to damage the roots as she did so. She had spent around an hour in this fashion when she though she heard a voice calling out for help. “Is anyone there?” she called. The voice answered her, calling out again, “HELP ME”. “Hold on I'm coming” Raneld shouted back, hurrying towards what she though was the source of the sound. As she drew near the clearing she realised the voice was getting louder and she started running. A moment later she dashed through the trees and emerged in the middle of the clearing, gasping at the sight that met her eyes. Moving carefully she hurried to the woman's side and lifted the strange weight from on top of her. Realising she would need help, she fled back to the village as fast as her legs could carry her and dashed into the healer's hut. “Come quickly Radqua there's an injured woman in the forest.“
Radqua Isloth got up from her seat at the bench where she had been preparing medicines, opened a nearby cupboard and took her medical bag from it. “How was she injured Raneld?” It looks as though she fell. When I arrived she was trapped under the remains of something. I have never seen anything like it before, but it looked like a large basket. It looks as though she hit her head when she fell, also. Radqua stared and then shrugged , there was no point arguing with Raneld about how likely it was, she need Raneld was not prone to exaggerating and anyway she would find out for herself soon enough. “How big is it?” Raneld shrugged her shoulders “Big enough for a person to fit in I'd guess. “Well no sense speculating, lead on”. Raneld nodded, and the two woman hurried away into the woods.
