"Alright I agree but remember that if anything happens the security of the civilians will be my first and utmost priority ." A fury built up within Silvaetus as the girl said that very sentence. This concern for human life other than his own was slowly getting on his nerves and emphasizing on it was not helping. “Listen Adelheid” his voice now forceful rather than his usual friendly tone “It WILL work. And besides, if they are alerted to our intet while separated the chances of more civilians being harmed increases! That’s why we have to draw them in, away from the innocents!” Fate truly was cruel having him of all people giving a lecture on how to SAVE lives…

So Fred here will take me to your main base and YOU” he pointed at the bandit “Will gather the other men.”
