Swamped Chapter 80 Page 1

You start by opening the door just enough to peek inside, only to hear an unfamiliar voice.

“You’re wasting your time, Marshguard. I already know you’re coming.”

It sounds a little similar to Carma’s accent, so it’s probably someone who works for the Master. Or used to. Either way, you’re probably not going to do too well in a straight-up fight.

You wonder if it’s worth calling back. Maybe they just overheard you yelling to Ash and guessed you were nearby. You certainly don’t see a need to get any closer. In fact, you pull away from the door in case you get attacked.

Well. Maybe from here it should be relatively safe to talk. If not… you’ll just run back through the strange corridor, you suppose.

“What do you want?” you call back. “I’m not looking for a fight if there’s no need, but I can’t be sure on that if I don’t know what you’re doing here.”

“You need not concern yourself. All you need to know is that Carma and I have conflicting plans, and I am merely sorting out the differences.”

Well, that doesn’t make anything clearer in the slightest.

“So why are you hanging out near the cells, then?”

“Someone sent my pawn here. I had one last task for him, and I’m waiting here for him to finish it. Don’t worry – unlike Carma, I can handle all the spellcasting myself, so I hardly need inferior wizards like these two.”

You really don’t know what to make of this. This whole conversation is unsettling, and you know nothing of his intentions – but he doesn’t seem to be looking for a fight.

What should you do?
