text: When we returned to Chingmei, the camp was bubbling with news. Matche and the men with the heads had brought back word that a strong armed force to Kalyo Kengyu warriors from Noklak had stalked us that morning up to Yimpang. They had moved parallel with us on the hillside, and had walked into Yimpang as soon as we had left, explaining to the inhabitants that they had been ready to help if we had dared to do them any harm.
