With his eyes casted towards the woman, Xeelov suddenly spotted movements behind her. He tilted his head slightly to get a better view at the attendant who'd just walked past the entrance and heading towards the combatants' room. Unmistakenly, there were envelopes in the man's hand. His smile slowly vanished as his curiosity on the activity beyond the cafeteria beckoned him. Was it another task like the one he'd gotten when he first entered? Not too long after, the man returned empty handed followed closely by one of the participants who seemed rather hasty in his walk. Something was definitely happening, something different than the usual. Disturbed, Xeelov immediately stood and grabbed his weapon.
"It seemed that fate have got plans for us.. Perhaps it was saving our conversation for later.."
Or simply to not make your condition worse when you hear about my death...
"I've got to go.." with that said, the Lieutenant left without taking another glance over his shoulder.
As soon as he exitted the cafeteria, he shifted his gaze towards where the Necroloth was headed to; the portal. His steps turned briskly. Wondering just where did the participant just went. Was it the letter? Or was he abandoning the tournament? Finally standing by his doorway with the letter in hand, he understood. It was a silent activation this time. Indeed it was something that hadn't happened at least for the first two rounds.
Xeelov tossed the note before making his own way towards the teleportation chamber. So his fight this time round would be the same man who'd rescued the slave-woman from attempting at taking her own life. Admittedly, he wasn't as surprised as he thought he should be at the accomplishments achieved by his opponent.
-Expect the unexpected!-
A phrase imprinted into his head since his recruiting years as a Soldier.
-Underestimate not your enemy, especially those who seemed feeble!-
Just like how he'd treated Arcana despite his confidence. Sadly, these words weren't said by his direct superior, instead it was mentioned by Zeth Havoc. So with that couple of advice from his memory banks, Xeelov stepped into the portal and headed for Mao Temple Grounds as stated in the letter.
