Couple dozens of steps back, there was Ramza approaching the lobby to the Library. His head hung low and he's wearing a frown over his features. He'd been serious and quiet throughout the journey back. Maxwell was trailing a few steps back. Still limping from his earlier injury. Silent as well. Unable to bring himself to utter a single word to the newborn Rook for fear of angering the man further than he already seemed to be. The Holder was deep in his thoughts then. His mind simply wandered off to the next task. To the next lead. Valenci. The man he believed to have known more about the ruined temple where the golems resided than he appeared to be. The man whom he believed to be the root of the problem.
Upon reaching the counter, both of them were greeted by a couple of Holders from the Medical Department. Ramza nodded in acknowledgement as they suggested he first make a visit to the medical bay before proceeding anywhere else. But before he followed, he managed to drop a message to the Holder at the reception.
"Inform Liaison that I've brought a non-Librarian into the premises. He's Maxwell from Bihar. A contact and a guide we had for the mission. He'll be helping the Researchers with the golem and the ruin. And especially at deciphering some of the carvings that was seen on the walls of the labyrinth. I'll personally bring him over to the department once we're done with the check-up. Just let the man know of his presence."
With that said, he gestured Maxwell to follow the escorts. Unaware that Allen too was among his team and that the Pawn was assigned to them, Ramza resumed with what he was doing earlier. Which would be to indulge himself in his own thoughts. Soon, he was sitting beside a lady Holder who seemed to either be the nurse or the doctor. She was taking his temperature and doing some checks on him. His eyes stared blankly on the floor ahead. Thinking. Wondering. Hoping that bringing the guide here would at least aid and hasten the research on the golems and it's home. Hoping that the next source would bring the mission to a conclusion instead of it being stalled. Or somewhat abandoned. Ramza didn't take it to well. He knew that neither of his companion had taken the outcome fairly either. Well, at least beside the fact that they'd managed to get out of there with their lives. That should've been enough to say that they haven't actually failed the mission. Yet, it just doesn't feel that way.
So, he waited until the medic was satisfied with the results. Until he was deemed fit to resume with his duty.
