Everest and I decided to go exploring around the Valley of Frozen Mist. I still lack one location on my map, (the description is “Not everything hidden is bones“, if anyone wants to help out) and wanted to see if I could discover it. We entered the dead forest, which is one of my favourite places now, and started to trot around.
While examining a bit of cloth on a tree, I heard a snap. Everest had trotted away, sniffing. I ran after him, yelling HALT over and over, but he wouldn’t cease snorting or frolicking. He eventually slowed and I grabbed his reins, but turned around and what I saw was a bit frightening.
There was a woman, blue with cold, leaning against the tree. She tried to talk, but was so cold all that came out was a faint “Brrr…”. The woman was dressed as a doctor, and after further examination I noticed she was a veterinarian from Jorvik City.
Being the saintly Soul Rider and horse we are, Everest and I gently carried the vet back to Nic’s camp… after falling and being sent home due to injuries numerous times.
I was a bit cranky as we reached the elevator after our last fall… a bit of dry humour spilled out of me. The girl took no offence.
Apparently, the woman had travelled with Profess. Einstein, and when their helicopter crashed Einstein took no notice of her. I was a bit irritated with her, but hurried about making a fire for the poor soul.
The next day the vet, Ms. Precari, told me that after the crash she had wandered the wilderness for a while before getting mild hypothermia… apparently it wasn’t so mild. However, she asked if a veterinarian practice was a possibility and I conversed with Nic. He agreed, and now she stands near the path waiting for any injured and cold patients.
It was a quite exciting, irritating, and confusing mission, however Everest and I believe we did a good deed and it benefits us in case we ever get hurt! If you need the coordinates, here they are: X: 388 Y: 87 in the Valley of Frozen Mist, which can be accessed by taking the Frozen Road, crossing the bridge, going on, and veering off into Icenwood and going forward until you reach the dead forest.
