With the monsters defeated, the group begins to celebrate. Remi catches sight of someone standing behind shrubbery in the distance. At first she’s worried that the figure was a victim of the explosion, but her concern quickly vanishes when the silhouette darts into the nearby forest.
Realizing the figure might be the culprit, Remi dashes forward, hoping to catch the figure before they can escape.
After a short chase, Remi is able to use her natural ability to fly to catch the man with a tackle. The two tumble to the ground and Remi freezes when she hears the click of a gun.
The man forces her back at gunpoint. While being held with her hands up, Remi is able to see the man’s striking facial features and scars.
Luckily, Nightingale, Rook, and Zeke arrive just in time and force the man to retreat.
The unknown assailant escapes, but Remi is left unscathed and with a description to give her father.
For the second time in two days Remi finds herself back in her father’s study.
Remi excitedly explains what happened. Admitting to her father that they didn’t go to the guards for help but they were able to handle it by themselves.
Remi gives Malik the description of the man that they saw, describing his strikingly unique features and long scar on his face.
Malik’s expression darkens at the description of the man. He admits that he knows who was behind the attack but refuses to let them get caught up any further in his personal issues. Malik’s temper is withheld so much that he has to tell Remi that he isn’t angry at her. Instead, he’s angry at the man who pointed a gun at his daughter. Regardless, Malik is happy that his daughter is okay. Malik hugs Remi and thanks the others for watching her back before sending them away with a promise that he’ll contact them as soon as he knows more about the whereabouts of a Theodotion Mage.
