((I'm gonna have Karela continue on home.))
Karela was continuing at a normal pace back to the village when she suddenly had a thought concerning specter.
Is it possible the eight tailed beast attacked his village? The nine-tailed demon fox and the eight-tailed ox are nearly matched in strength...and during an attack it is possible that he somehow confused whatever attacked his village for another of the tailed beasts. Ah well, another question for another time.
Karela whistled a cheery tune and picked up the pace back toward the village.
