“What’s wrong?” Amandina, who was nearby, felt there was an odd atmosphere in the air and asked.
Brendel turned to her and saw that she was wearing an additional robe to keep herself warm.
“The arbor near one of the Green Tower’s watch towers; it is also the hometown of many Centaurs. But the Fire Seed there did not activate.”
“Ah—” She looked at the Centaur Elder’s back with a little sympathy: “But how did you know that, my lord?”
“Do you not remember the words from our Tree Elf guide from the Blackthorn Council? He just told us yesterday morning.”
“T-that’s……” Amandina’s eyes widened a little as she recalled: “But it was just a fleeting moment and we got interrupted by the wolves. You remembered it so easily?”
Brendel hurriedly faked inspecting his sword to avoid laughing at the earnest girl’s admiration. In truth, he already knew where it was in the game. It might be just as likely that he did not remember what their guide said.

The interlaced mountains looked like soldiers standing on opposite sides, with the geography of the area steep and difficult to traverse.
