Quent gave a nod to Drix’s suggestion, but Joshua’s orders were not welcomed in the slightest because of his demanding tone. Quent could take suggestions when necessary, and he often followed the words of his higher ups, but to have a random elf give orders to the prince? Even so, this was absolutely no time to engage the dark elf, for clearly there were bigger matters at hand. The stench of the troll was already overwhelming, but he stood his ground and made sure to keep Kaleo well within his sights. He at the very least though, he gave a nod to Drix, because his tone of voice was not so demanding.
“My lord, find cover. Don’t engage the troll. Take to the trees if you must,” he said sternly, deliberately ignoring the elf’s words.
“I can stay on the ground!” Basil spoke up. “I can climb fast, but I can be a main distraction while the others try to sneak around.” She took to her battle stance, then foolishly ran straight for the troll, hoping that the others would assume their positions as she threw herself forward.
