After tossing the fatally annoying, shrieking Bipsha into the deepest cave and shutting him away—Shooting Star had always used this place to confine the few animals that he had caught, but, on the rare occasion, couldn’t finish eating—he clapped his hands happily and skipped his way to the cave closer to the front.

This was the “home” Shooting Star had spoken of. He had found this series of caves by chance when he had arrived at Stella City, taken on the Adventurers’ Guild’s “Alligator Purse” mission, and come to the Metalligator Swamp to capture alligators. Several large caves connected with smaller ones, and it was rather spacious.

The caves were located behind a waterfall, and vines grew all around the waterfall, hiding the caves very well. If Bones, who liked to run around randomly, hadn’t swung inside using vines, Shooting Star most likely wouldn’t have discovered the place.

“Xiao Bai.”

Not long after entering the forest, Shooting Star lowered Bai Saya with a sense of urgency and hurriedly offered him the bottle of healing potion. Otherwise, he would really have saved him for nothing.

Although the injury on Bai Saya’s neck wasn’t deep, he had lost a lot of blood. Just entering the forest, a lot of time had been wasted. The blood loss alone could kill a man.

“Hurry up and drink it,” Shooting Star urged.

The moment he drank the potion, Bai Saya once more experienced having a bitter and sour feeling travel from his mouth throughout his entire body. So this is a healing potion?

Before he lost consciousness, the last image that Bai Saya had seen was Shooting Star’s shining, golden eyes, and he had the feeling that he would never wake up again.

When Bai Saya opened his eyes once more, before even figuring out his location he gazed up at the blue sky, incomparably thankful to the heavens. Being alive is great! Then, he once again saw that pair of shining, golden eyes, and it was even accompanied by a voice that really grated on the nerves at that moment.

“Have him drink some healing potions, then throw him into the same cell as the elf.”

Barely conscious, Bai Saya seemed to hear Mannen’s voice. Then, a bitter and sour liquid was forced into his mouth. If it weren’t that he knew that a single stab from Mannen could kill him if Mannen wanted to, Bai Saya really would have thought he was being fed poison.

Soon after, the potions forced down his throat began to take effect. The bitter and sour taste traveled from his mouth to his entire body. Coupled with the pain from his injuries, Bai Saya could only curl up and hug his stomach painfully. Cold sweat covered his entire body. In the midst of this, he could feel himself being carried to yet another place and then tossed onto a cold floor.

Finally, he could no longer stand the aching pain coursing through his entire body and lost consciousness once again.

When Bai Saya opened his eyes again, he found that the aching pain caused by the potions had disappeared. Even the injured parts of his body no longer felt painful.

He lay there unmoving, a bit dazed. He directed his gaze toward the ceiling, staring aimlessly. His act of revenge had failed, and he had gotten captured as well. From what Mannen had said earlier, it seemed that he wanted to sell Bai Saya as a slave. After suffering through countless hardships to find his foe, this was the result… The bitterness seeped into his heart, so bitter that his eyes grew moist.

“No, Shifu has told me that men must not let tears fall so easily.”

Bai Saya sat up and forcefully patted his cheeks. When he raised his head, his face was once again calm.

I can’t give up. I’ll take a look around first, and then make a plan.

He surveyed his surroundings, but he didn’t make it far before realizing with a shock that he wasn’t the only prisoner present. The other person had their back facing him. They were silent, sitting cross-legged in the corner, and had a head of long, blond hair that was so brilliant that even the dark prison room couldn’t hide it.

“Geez, this is pretty much a fort!” Shooting Star said despairingly.

What is up with this Mannen guy? Does he have enemies all over the world? Who else would construct a mini fort as a home! There’s even a moat. Excessive much?

The only entrance to the castle was a drawbridge. At the moment, the drawbridge was raised, and there were several pairs of warriors patrolling outside its walls.

Shooting Star brushed a sturdy branch aside and shifted his body a bit from where he was lying on the tree branch. He nimbly crawled closer to Bai Saya, who was on the opposite end of the branch. Shooting Star turned his head, about to ask Bai Saya what he thought of the castle, when he saw Bai Saya with an expression that was so grave, it was as if his shifu’s murderer was standing right in front of him.

Shooting Star’s heart leaped. He hurriedly shoved Bai Saya and reminded him, “Hey!”

Bai Saya slowly turned his head, his eyes filled with barely contained hatred.

“Don’t be so agitated!” Shooting Star widened his eyes and hurriedly said, “The security of this place is insanely tight. Don’t tell me that you plan to arrogantly walk over, get captured by the guards without even seeing a peep of Mannen, and get thrown straight into jail?”

Hearing that, Bai Saya froze, then shook his head.

After Shooting Star saw that he had calmed down, he nodded in satisfaction and called out, “Bones! Bones, come out.”

“Kiki—“

“Hurry up and eat! Why aren’t you eating? This chicken is fried so deliciously!”

Shooting Star was tearing into the chicken leg he held. He ate so fast that his mouth was filled with meat to the point that he couldn’t gulp it down. He could only grab a cup of ale from the side and gargle it, finally swallowing it all down. Then, he began attacking the meat patty that was off to the side.

Finally, he polished off the entire table—yes, the entire table—worth of dishes, and only then did Shooting Star pat his stomach in satisfaction.

Next to him, Bai Saya was nursing his cup of ale, almost forgetting to eat. From start to finish, he could only stare at Shooting Star, as his heart had filled with puzzlement ever since the dishes on the table had been reduced by half. Just where is Shooting Star, who looks so small and slim, putting all this food?

In one gulp, Shooting Star finished off his ale, and his expression suddenly became incomparably solemn. He turned to look at his companion and said sincerely and earnestly, “Bai Saya.”

“Yeah?”

“I know that you have difficulties speaking about it…”

Bai Saya was actually quite surprised. Shooting Star actually understands respecting other people’s privacy? He nodded as he said, “Yes. There are some things that I can’t speak about—”

“I knew it! Quick, tell me what those secret things are. I really want to know!” Shooting Star widened his eyes, like a child waiting to hear a story.

Y-you, do you really understand what it means to have difficulties speaking about it? It’s “difficult,” yet you want me to tell you quickly? Bai Saya didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.
