Aisha and Shaheed were left above ground as Vermeer, Fonke, Isotta and Yuusuke started descending into the basement. A rope ladder was used due to it’s reliability.
The pit hole was about 1 meter wide, surrounded by thick cobblestone. Under the ground it looked like a buried old mansion’s room’s ceiling.
“Apparently, this hole seems to be man-made.”(Vermeer)
Vermeer led the way so as to ensure that there was enough light around where we were walking and he pointed out the places where there were potholes on the stone pavements. Unexpectedly, the hole looked like it was naturally caved-in, but somehow there was parts of a rope ladder around the place, and one could speculate that this hole was probably made in this location.
Although the town is made up of stones reinforced through earth arts, it is not difficult to drill by force using the same kind of earth arts. Of course, it is against the law to drill a hole without prior notification to the department that manages the city.
“Maybe a Blue garden’s spy who was lurking around had dropped into it?”(Fonke)
“….indeed, it doesn’t seem impossible.”(Yuusuke)
“Hiii….., the second coming of Gearhawk Fortress….”(Isotta)
The place where Yuusuke and his gang landed looked like a corridor of the filled up part of an old mansion. A stairs leading down was visible ahead of them, as it seemed like they were on the corridor that was either the 2nd or higher floor. As a matter of fact, since Vermeer’s flame arts was the only light source, the light could not reach places that were in total darkness.
