When Elen read the letter, she remained silence and even when Tigre tried to speak with her, she could only gave a weak answer. The next day, Elen invited Tigre for a horse ride around Territoire, much to Tigre's surprise and yet complied anyway. Behind her usual cherish-self, Elen was actually serious and looked tensed. In the meantime, there were no news about Roland's return to Nice and nobody knew the truth about his cruel death.

Lim told Tigre that they would return to the Orange Plains after their rescue towards Legnica and he had to refrain from doing something reckless, which Tigre complied as he understood Elen's fear and pain for him. With Lim's last words, Elen and the Leitmeritz Army left for Leginas except Rurick, who decided to stay due to Zhcted's colder winter than Brune. Leitmeritz's other 1000 soldiers were also decided to stay with Tigre and the army also added with Mashas's led 1000 Brune Army.
