Darlana hears a fluttering sound.
"It is a pigeon," Pratima exclaims.
"What does the message say," Darlana is breathless.
"The royal army is at Bhind," she says excitedly.
"Bhind!" Darlana is shocked. "That's only 40 kilometers away!"
"We only have to hold out until they travel 40 kilometers," Pratima is crying with frustration. "How long will it take?"
"If the train is running," Darlana thinks out loud, "They could be here in one hour."
There is one more attack about thirty minutes later.
"They are inside the breastwork!" someone screams.
