“The South road,” another replies gruffly. “Nothing down that way but the old farmsteads.”

The second person, undoubtedly an older gentleman, spits crudely before making his reply. “Not really,” he said. “We hear of squatters holing up there sometimes when the weather is foul.”
“Clear skies today,” the young person points out, perhaps unnecessarily.
