Against Boss’s caution, Stella decided to sneak out in the middle of the night, not really having any idea what she was doing or where she was going. As she neared Smoke’s territory, she felt a growing sense of discomfort. Their boss seemed to have the security extra high tonight.
Was Aella there?
Stupid question. Where else would she be? She wasn’t in the Mist territory, so even if she didn’t want to, Smoke would have caught her.
Climbing onto the nearest tree, Stella snapped a twig off and threw it at a Smoke subject. She observed the people’s movements as their guard went up. It didn’t take too long for her to figure out where the leader’s cave was. She advanced towards it, swinging from branch to branch.
