Drabble Challenge #82 [Alternate]

Prompt: water

part 5 of the series: Encountering Ophelia

Thinking more of the swift-moving woman hed only barely seen than his task at hand, Jonathan Willoway made his way toward a small hill surrounded by trees. He had only picked up a few fallen branches when he heard the trickling of a stream, and the louder cascade of a waterfall.

He patted his hip. I still have my canteen, so Ill be able to fetch us some water, as well as the wood.

He continued slowly toward the musical tones, listening carefully for the tell-tale sounds of moving water, yet hoping he might hear her soft footfall as well.
