A few of the Lost of Savannah found themselves in The Hedge, not revealing their motives to each other but staying together for safety. Upon the Trod they met the Winter King, Mark Ledger, coming the other way. Before given a chance to truly converse about each others presence they were attacked by Blackgators from the brackish water that buffeted the right side of the Trod. Slenderman was almost eaten but the gators were dispatched between the two groups. The motley was sent back the way they came winding up near the water treatment plant, on E. President Street.
