Unfortunately, there were more monsters than they anticipated and were about to be eaten by one of them, but the trauma forced Naiz to awaken his spatial magic at the last moment and managed to kill it just in time to save everyone. Solda had Yogun and Naiz keep what happened a secret in order to protect his son from being taken by the Holy Church.
