Fueling The Hearth
You consider visiting the market, but the guards there will certainly recognize you, so you leave that for later.
Yes, Internet person. The mushminions spread spores that eventually grow into more mushminions.
They would be quite a hazard for the environment, if they weren’t so low in the food chain, that is.
Borrowing money from the commerce guild was what got you into this mess in the first place, you’d rather not repeat the process with air quotes around it this time. Especially since they’ll be looking for you.
Ophi: Well… Here it is, my old place… Or what’s left of it .
Hey cheer up, Boobs Bunny, you’ve got an even bigger place now.
Hm… You’re right, I guess. Let’s go, we have to find Lily before the guards find us.
… Of course that would happen. Well, it’ll have to do.
Wait… I can feel a large source of lust power nearby, we have to investigate! For… Reasons!
Of course that’s what you pervs would be after… Ahem… Putting on the cloak you found, you easily maneuver through the alleyways and find yourself in front of “the powerful source of lust energy” Which is…

Well, it all just seems a little….
What the hell is this now?
Shush, that’s for them! You’re not supposed to talk about it!
Holy crap you weren’t kidding when you said you owed them money!
“caution, loud alarm audio!”
Wait, what’s that?!
Oh shit, it’s the city’s alarm!
Ceres and the minions must’ve gotten the city’s attention at the gates, quick, let’s go and find Lily while they’re distracted!
