The next day the Darkness God Corps party had left Rinwaal and headed towards Driadria. No one noticed when Reifold returned from the palace, but he joined the party for their breakfast and didn’t have any qualms when he was told that he was to join the Rudea mines party.
“By the way, what did you talk to the King about yesterday?”
