“It can’t even keep out lessers?”
“This isn’t a divine barrier. Dark wraiths are made of magic energy, and it’s easy for a barrier to stop them. But it’s different for enemies made of matter…”
Luchila looked quite disappointed by my answer.
That being said, the beastkin wolves were capable of catching people who were Charmed or other enemies that weren’t dark wraiths.
So it had the bare minimum required features, as it could catch what they could not.
“We just need to strengthen the walls of the mansion. Then we can stop most enemies with physical bodies.”
“Yes! Just like you did in the secret passage in your house, Mister Locke.”
While we were engrossed in our work, there was a knock on the door.
“Yes, please come in.”
“I’m sorry to bother you.”
It was Shia who had entered.
“What is it?”
“I’m really sorry about this but… But I think you should eat dinner soon.”
“Oh, it’s already that time then.”
“No, it’s actually way past that time.”
In fact, it was already midnight.
It had been snack time when we finished the first prototype.
Then we had taken a late lunch and then fought the dark wraith.
After that, we had repaired the wall and returned to working on the magic tools. The sun had already started to set by then.
So it wasn’t all that surprising actually.
While it may not hurt for some of us to miss a meal, it was quite different for Luchila.
And we needed sleep as well.
“If you insist. Let’s go eat dinner then.”
“Yes, you should!”
“Now that I think of it, I am quite hungry!”
Kathe wagged her tail happily.
“While it is true that we should hurry… Hunger and drowsiness have a way of affecting quality!”
Mors said with a nod.
And so we had our dinner, took a bath, and then went to bed.
