“How should I handle them?” Brendel repeated the question to himself.
This was indeed a question. The sudden wealth made him feel that it was unsafe no matter where they were put. He had to lead his men further into to the forest to find Valhalla, but it was unsafe to leave the eggs here.
“Boy, I suggest for you to send these eggs back to Firburh,” Kodan said with a slow and grave voice.
“No, I can’t do that.” Brendel considered carefully. Valhalla’s worth could not be gauged and was worth more than the eggs.
Kodan stared incredulously at him: “Is there something else in the Dark Forest that has more value than these eggs?”
“I thought about this for a while. It’s best to leave some men behind.”
“Leave people behind?” The old swordsman shook his head repeatedly: “Who? This is the Dark Forest.”
“It’s precisely because it’s the Dark Forest that no outsiders would come here. Weaker monsters won’t approach this place because the Hydra’s nest foul smell makes it seem like the Hydra’s still here. The strong monsters have their own territory and would not easily change their locations. Furthermore, this is still the outer section of the Dark Forest. The Hydra is standing at the top of the food chain here.”
Kodan suddenly became alert: “Why are you explaining so much to me? Are you planning something?”
Kodan said exasperatedly: “I have never recognized myself to be part of your group. Are you not afraid that I would run away with these eggs? Certainly bringing all of them away isn’t possible, but I can simply take one or two away.”
“Well now, Grandmaster Kodan, this is the Dark Forest. Is it possible for you to find your way out without the Druids?” Brendel coughed.
The old man was immediately at a loss for words, and his eyebrows were raised: “What, are you threatening me again?”
Brendel hurriedly shook his head: “Of course not, it’s just a joke. I actually plan to leave a group of Fire Claw Lizardmen here. They should be sufficient to handle any beasts that come in by accident. Having them stay here is just a precaution.”
“Hmph. That sounds much better. Don’t joke with me if you have nothing better to do, boy!” Kodan said.
However, he found himself slightly disappointed when Brendel said that. It proved that the youth did not trust him.
The two of them continued to talk until a commotion stopped their conversation. Brendel found one of the youths rushing to him in a panic.
[This person is under Carglise’s group? Did they find something?]
Brendel had sent the youths to inspect the tunnels within the pit during his conversation with Kodan. Since this pit was the former waterfall basin, the tunnels were originally rivers. He sent them out to investigate if there were any other materials. If it was Firelight Moss, it might explain the scout’s astonishment, since they could grow as far as a football field.
