Even though the old swordsman grumbled in his mind, he regarded Brendel carefully from the corner of his eyes.
Brendel smirked a little when he caught Kodan’s admonishing stare. The reason why he sought Kodan was quite simple. He wanted to use this opportunity on his adventure to train the youths. The Dark Forest was filled with danger at every corner and it was the best place to train.
There was also the fact where it would be easier to impart his ideals to them by having the youths around him.
The problem with this strategy was the unpredictable dangers within the Dark Forest. It was a difficult task to protect these youths alone, and he could not spend all his time to do just that, so he needed more people to help him.
Ciel, Medissa, and Scarlett were powerful Gold-rankers, while the Mercenaries of Lopes were Silver-rankers. However, the current Firburh could hardly allow Brendel to bring out too many of his forces. If it were not for the fact that Scarlett still could not leave his side for too long, he was not even willing to choose to bring her along.
Therefore Brendel claimed that it was a short trip and used it as an excuse to bring Kodan along to help him. Even though the latter grumbled about it, Brendel believed that he would still lend a hand in the end.

The mercenaries hurriedly descended from the carriages when they recognized Brendel’s figure, bending their bodies slightly as they greeted him:
“Is everyone here?” Brendel asked.
“Yes, my lord.”
“How about Scarlett?”
“Miss Scarlett is here along with Lady Amandina.”
Brendel looked up and his eyes landed on the final carriage that was black in color. Amandina and Scarlett alighted from the carriage, but what surprised him was the two Wild Elf sisters in the carriage.
The younger sister Dia even waved at him.
“My lord!” She called out.
The Mercenaries of Lopes were busy with their missions for an extended period of time, and she had not seen Brendel for a while. She seemed particularly excited.
“Why are they here?” Brendel walked over and nodded at the little girl, but his eyes went to Amandina with this question.
Amandina seemed to have predicted Brendel’s question, but she suddenly glanced at the four carriages as if to confirm something subconsciously, before
