For a long while, their progress was uneventful. They encountered no
person nor creature,
and no more enchantments came to trouble them. Fred was worried by how low
was burning, though. It had been dipped in a liquid that caused it to burn
very slowly, but
his mission was taking far longer than he had anticipated. He had not
how large and complex the cave system was, or he would have brought more
than one torch.
Also the food in his pack was beginning to run low. It had been intended
one person, not two people and a dog.
Eventually, his torch flickered and died.
