Amamiya picked his way through the mud as best he could, with tree branches scratching at him and his bag feeling about twice as heavy as it was. Good thing this other man had a light; his own had guttered out in the storm.

But it was the horse who caught his attention first. Half of it was already in the muck; the other half was panicked and thrashing. Amamiya hoped this fellow simply needed help getting his bags off his horse, because things were not looking hopeful for the animal itself.

"I don't know anything about horses," was what he said as he dropped his bag. Although it might have seemed a bit of a non sequitur, it was what Amamiya deemed to be the most relevant piece of information to convey to the stranger. Whatever the stranger wanted to salvage, it was best that he take the lead in deciding how to proceed; Amamiya was just as likely to spook the animal further as he was to calm it down.
