Rowan stopped when the knight said he would catch up. He turned his horse to see the knight head towards one of his kind sitting near a tree. He urged his stallion to a gallop after the knight. He couldn't take any chances even if the knight gave his word. That was how his best friend had been caught by a soldier and then turned over to the Inquistors. He had to make sure.
Darlene knew what was on Rowan's mind. She had seen first hand his concern for his people and knew he would fight for them. He was the one who found their refuge. Knowing he would be annoyed if she didn't continue on, she turned to follow him back to where the elf was.
