The green-robed woman nodded in agreement.
The two spirits continued their discussion for a moment more and their lights flickered before they disappeared from the tree.
At that same moment in a hidden room in Setting Sun City, there were several people of unordinary bearing sitting around a table.
A skinny monk wearing a necklace of black prayer beads turned to the white-robed middle-aged man and asked, “City Lord Lan. You say that these spirit clan men are trapped in the Setting Sun Tomb and that we must recuse them?”
The white-robed man sullenly said, “That’s right. I just received this information. As they fled, they were heavily injured by pursuers from the spirit clan. With more spirit clan pursuers close on their tail and their grave injuries, they won’t be able to make it to the city. We will need to receive them.”
