“But still, how come you tried to defeat Medusa?” Alisa asked.
The group exited the cave and wandered into a forest.
“Well, word has it that Medusa has an all-powerful legendary ax in her possession, so naturally I had to have it. But I screwed up, and now she’s left the area. I doubt she’ll be coming back to that cave any time soon.”
“Well, there are plenty of other weapons out there. Anyway, there should be a village nearby here called Eppi. I can just get myself something from their Armor Shop.”
Off they went to find Eppi, or so they tried, but it seemed that the woods were endless. There wasn’t a trace of any village or even the remains of a village.
“Hey, I’m getting the feeling that we’ve been walking around in circles…” said Alisa.
“Oh, yeah. That’s right, this is the ‘The Lost Woods’! No wonder. You need a special compass to pass through here or you’ll be lost forever,” said Tyrone matter-of-factly, pulling a compass out from his pocket.
“Really?! You mean to tell me you’ve been carrying that around the whole time and you didn’t say anything?? My legs are about to fall off from all this walking!”
<Tyrone is a trouble maker,> said Myau giggling.
— Finally they made their arrival to the village of Eppi.
“Hey, Alisa. When we’re done shopping, let’s try hopping over to Paseo on the planet Motavia. I’ve heard that the governor there is really anti-La Shiec. He might be able to help us.”
“Good idea,” Alisa nodded.
