The next morning, Alisa and her comrades bid their farewell to Suelo and departed.
The hills of Baya Malay were located roughly 10 kilometers north of the port city of Scion. Since La Shiec has come into power, the entire area had been sealed off with huge castle walls. Alisa and the group forced their way through a checkpoint and entered the foothills. Then, they stared up at the giant tower that stood on the summit.
Baya Malay Tower. It was much taller than any other tower they had entered before. Surely this is what the Ice Man meant when he said “far above the hills”, there was no mistaking it.
As soon as the group entered the tower, they could hear the sound of shutters dropping behind them.
“Always the same old scare tactics. As if that’ll work on us!”
