In Which Sorey Says Goodbye
“Are you kidding? There’s another area? I thought we were done,” Zaveid groused. Mikleo shared the sentiment, but he wasn’t about to complain. Securing the area around the place Sorey would wait with Maotelus was of the utmost importance, and they weren’t going to slack off.
“Well, we’d better get started,” he said shortly. Zaveid sighed, but acquiesced. Mikleo knew he was tired; he was, too. Rose, Lailah, and Edna had left after Rose made her pact with Lailah. Mikleo had tried to hide his emotion at the idea of having a new Shepherd so soon, but he was pretty sure that Lailah had seen, because she was the one who suggested he and Zaveid stay behind to take care of Sorey.
