It didn't take many seconds for the courtyard to be filled with guards, monks and nuns. They had been alarmed by the scream, but aside from that, they didn't have the slightest clue, as to what was going on. Ash quickly decided to use that to his advantage, and left the scene.

He ran, and he ran as the sun was slowly setting. He didn't know how long Evitagen had sat there, under the tree, in Ash's body, but he knew it had been a long time, since it was a little past noon, when he left Angela's lab.

He arrived at the door, and knocked on it, desperately hoping for Angela to answer. Luckily for Ash, she did so very quickly.

Ash couldn't help but be a little happy that she was showing concern for him. He also knew, that he couldn't stay for long, since Angela would most likely not let him leave if she found out what Evitagen had done, using his body.

Ash then proceeded to stack five gold coins on Angela's table. Evitagen wanted Ash to 'clean up', but it seemed as if that would be near impossible. Instead, getting as far away from the church, thus not getting caught seemed like the more realistic plan.

"Angela, Wilfred was the one who fainted, so could you do the paperwork, and then work the rest out with him later?" Ash was shaking visibly at this point.

Trees, bushes, the roses he used to tend to. All of it was flying by, as Ash was speeding towards the gate. Commotion could be heard in the distance. Word of Wilfred's death had probably reached everyone now. The gate was drawing closer and closer.

There were two guards standing at the gate. They didn't seem to be on alert, since they seemed to be on break. Ash highly doubted they would get break-time, if they knew there was a murderer on the loose. He decided to head toward the guards.

The guards at the church never got to see any action, since no crimes were ever committed there. It was a place of peace, and even criminals respected that. The guards would often have to start fights themselves, unless they wanted to die from boredom.

"No, I went to gather power. I don't exactly belong in this world, so I borrow a bit of life force from here and there. I hope that answers your question, Mr. Tsuga" Evitagen said, once again proving himself to be able to read Ash's mind, like an open book.
