"Great job, you left us beat." Summer panted exhaustedly, pulling out a potion to regenerate on health. Then she used a mana crystal, restoring her energy.
Archer also gulped down a remedy, coughing and gagging afterwards. "God who knew something so good for you could taste like total crap?" She complained before jumping up on her feet.
"Congratulations, we are now ready to continue our journey." Summer smiled again, and with that they were off.
Now the Sterling Youth was missing the beauty of the grassy meadows as they now enter the badlands. Dry, malnourished soil wherever they walked. The wind also kicked up dust as it made it harder to see past a certain distance.
"Damn, this hurts my eyes." Ken squinted at his map as they noticed there was something

There were also quite a few trees around, long vines hanging from them.Sterling Youth Chapter 4 by Wolfblade-Numbs
Our heroes were trudging along, but Summer didn't seem too bothered by the ecosystem. In fact, she felt a bit of a connection here. Either way, it was starting to get dark in the swamp and because of the thick fog it was hard to see anything from far away.

Summer nodded and suddenly they were surrounded by dim light. "Alright, but we may have to move quickly so my mana doesn't deplete again." She focused on the light, making sure it doesn't die out.
