v) Shyan gives the order to make camp

Shyan gives the order to make camp, and begins staking out the two patchwork canvas tents. Cang butchers the nightpig after cleaning his hammer, and Abia stokes a cookfire. Fassn sits nearby, flaking fragments from the nightpig’s tusks and secreting them into a small pouch.
After their dinner, Shyan takes first watch. Her shift is uneventful, though she hears many strange noises. Fassn is next, but she lets him sleep, instead, fearing what he might do with the tusks when he was alone.
When dawn comes, and her friends stretch lazily awake, Shyan blinks away the lure of rest, and breaks camp, leading the way to the dome.
