It has been four days since Henry had last seen a village, and it would have been a longer seven days if he didn't manage to come across a family with a caravan, making their way through the road as well. It was convenient, but either way, Henry was used to it. He'd been on the road by himself many times, moving from village to village, town to town, looking for job opportunities so he can have spending money for a place to sleep and food to eat, all the while being on the lookout for his younger brother.
It has been more than half a decade since he last saw Sol. Henry didn't even know if his brother was still alive. Although it was a thought that had entered his mind multiple times before, he always brushed it aside. He promised Sol he would find him, and so he shall. It probably would have been easier and faster if he put up notices about a lost Solaedin Galad, but Henry preferred a more discreet approach. Besides, if his brother was indeed alive somewhere, it might endanger his life.
Despite it being more comfortable traveling with a family with a caravan, Henry had parted ways with them this morning, primarily because they were headed in different ways. He stood on a small hill overlooking the few more kilometers he would have to walk to get to Greenville, wondering a little of what he would find there. Henry honestly would have chosen a smaller town, some other place where the chance of meeting people he might have known or crossed paths before in his old life was lesser. But a bigger town also meant a lot more opportunities, and also hopefully a lot more information that could tell him of his brother's whereabouts.
Traveling had made him weary though, and with just a few coins in his pocket, Henry wasn't sure if it would be enough to purchase a meal and a bed for the night. He was at least still quite full from the breakfast he had shared with the nomad family, but walking the entire morning and until late in the afternoon had taken some of his energy. A quick decision was made, and Henry chose to take a few hours to sleep under the safety and shade of a big tree, before entering Greenville where he figures he might have to do a bit of drudge work to earn a few more coins for a place in a tavern.
