“Stop!” Kodan shouted.
He realized there was something wrong at the gathering site. Not a few seconds after his yell, the place suddenly shook violently.
Brendel, Medissa and Scarlett’s expressions immediately changed. Thunderous splitting sounds followed as the walls repeatedly cracked until it reached the ceiling. Dust and pebbles quickly rained on their heads.
“Leave this room now!” Brendel’s yell woke everyone up from their shock. He had naturally assumed that the area collapsed because of their fight.
He quickly retreated to one of the exit tunnels, but Scarlett’s urgent voice rang out behind him:

She threw her robe onto her table, causing several parchments to fly off lightly, and she laughed a little before changing into her formal attire.
