Mendeli walked along one of the maintained roads of Bakara that stretched from Epicrin to Sylvan. He wasn't in a too much of a hurry, although he did seem to avoid crossing anyone's path that he saw coming towards him.
Having purchased some much needed goods in Ash, Laelaps and Streep made their way through the lowest parts of the mountains until they were back into the Sekoran Forest. If nothing interrupted their travels, the boy and coatl continued onward until they were back on the open roads of Bakara, from which they entered the Southern Forest. If they were again able to move without distraction, the duo exited the forest and made their way into Sylvan.
Since the deer was close to death, Laelaps waited for its final breath. After the animal had passed on, the boy loaded it into his void pack and then continued onward to Ash with Streep flying behind him.
