With a loud, rusty screech the door moved as Lesina's blade cut through the darkness. On the other side, the Knight found signs of the guard's last stand. A total of three bodies were scattered across the walkway, each wearing armor identical to the last dead man. The way the guards had died made it plain that they were fighting the guard with the map. If not for the fresh corpses, the rain water would have washed away all traces of the battle.
Aside from the corpses, the passage went three different directions. If someone checked the map that The Drifter had recovered, it would show that the path going straight would lead directly to the castle. The other two paths seemed to connect to different secret entrances and exits. Strangely, the stone pathway leading to the castle ended after a few yards. To go forward, everyone would have to brave the waist-high waters.
It was cold and wet, even in the tunnel. The heroes couldn't help shake the feeling that they were being watched. As water drained into the passage from the streets above, it sounded as though footsteps were wadding through the waters in every direction. In the darkness, Lesina's blade continued to shine with fire.
Hyrule Castle Town - Green District
Telma sat in silence while she processed Nadijah's words. The king was a tested warrior and commander. Would such a simple plan even work? This could be the only chance to catch him in the streets, but would the two Gerudo be able to best him and his bodyguards? Would this even be something the Queen and Impa would approve, or were they starting more trouble? Telma rubbed the side of her head at the foolishness she was considering.
"Have you cleared the Training Ground back home, sister" Telma said after a long silence. "I'm a good shot with my crossbow. If you can engage Rolo while the crowd distracts his men, then just maybe this will work, but we'll need to move quick."
Standing up, Telma moved to a cabinet and produced a black cloak and quiver. "The King will come through the South Gate. He'll have to pass the slums to reach the castle. Find a spot to ambush the King while I get the riot started. We'll meet back here in half an hour."
