The new chapters have been sent to the Moderators for posting.
This weeks chapters open with Mike and Chanthra on the way to the next village, Sap Sahun. On arriving there, Mike pays to have the buffalo watched over night while they all stay at the small Wat there.
That night he and Chanthra discuss finding better transportation to Korat. Late on the third day they arrive in Muak Lek - a much larger town with a hotel where they leave Ute and his buffalo cart.
In the hotel that night, they have sex for the first time, as Chanthra felt that it was inappropriate at the Wats. Their showers later are taken more carefully since there are more people in the area, unlike at the Wats.
In the morning Chanthra explains why the Amulets brought them to that time period. Later that morning, they go to purchase horses for the remainder of the trip to Korat.
They purchase two horses and their tack after much bargaining, and the seller accepts their paper money in payment after thoroughly checking it. He is very surprised by Mikes two revolvers before they depart.
It is past noon before they set out for Pak Chong, the next large town. Chanthra explains how she joined the Amulets on the road that afternoon.
Enjoy these two chapters. More next week.
A special thanks to all of those who read the previous stories in this series over the last week.
