Katalina saw Sumi and Astrid arrive before Kade, Hannah, and Alex returned with another young man. Alex and the young man were singing some kind of tune about... lying? Dear nereids, chanteys were weird in other worlds. She remembered the ones that she had learned in her world but of course, she couldn't sing any of them. It would hurt everyone's ears, and she didn't have the right vocal chords anymore.
"So, you found an old friend of Alexander's and the guards are... stubborn. Well then, I'm happy to say I have some good news. We found a ladder, and it has some kind of magic in it. It will get us to the roof of the tower, I promise. It is behind the castle, where there are no guards." Katalina smiled a bit and looked at them. "However we will have to go one at a time up the ladder. It might not hold the weight of all of us at the same time."
"Christopher and I know where it is, so we can show you."
Astrid shyly hid behind Sumi when the new boy approached. She was still unsure of how to approach boys sometimes, even while they were in another world. She had found it easy in Valhalla, but here... the boys were handsome and now, there were more of them. She looked over at the rest of the group, and listened to Katalina as she spoke.
"So, a ladder? That's our ticket up? Sounds good to me."
