“It seems that Grulf can sense the dark wraiths…but how is it with all of you?”
“They don’t have a scent or make any sound? Then it’s impossible to sense them.”
“That’s too bad…”
The chiefs looked very worried now.
But then Danton said cheerfully,
“But at least we know how the information has been leaking.”
It seemed like he was forcing it, so the room wouldn’t feel too oppressive.
“That’s true. In that case, it’s important that we don’t allow any more of them inside the mansion.”
I said. Kathe nodded.
“Hmm. Mors. We should go to the other mansions immediately and cast magic on them. Could you create water dragon barriers?”
“Let me see… I don’t have enough materials to create the same kind of barrier as we have around our settlement… But if we only needed to stop dark wraiths…”
“Well…it may be difficult…but we’ll have to try.”
I said. Mors and Kathe agreed.
Danton looked surprised.
“It’s difficult for even you, Locke? I didn’t know that there was anything that would be difficult for you!”
“Of course there is. It would be impossible without Kathe and Mors’s help. And it’s still hard with it.”
It was likely not impossible. But it would be difficult for sure.
“Yes. It’s difficult.”
“Indeed. But we will do it somehow.”
Kathe and Mors were optimistic. If they were confident, then things would surely turn out all right.
“In any case, we should prioritize these barriers.”
And so we decided to prepare to make the barriers. The magic tools could come later.
Dark wraiths were dangerous, but they were not that strong in terms of combat.
“As long as we can see them the moment before they unleash their magic, we should be able to deal with them.”
The chiefs agreed.
Aside from Shia, they were all A-Rank, which meant they were first-rate Adventurers. And they also had magic weapons.
So the chiefs would have no trouble killing dark wraiths.
As for the others, it was decided that they should run if they encountered a dark wraith.
Once all that was decided, the chiefs returned to their mansions.
