I slept like a baby that night. I woke up feeling rested and rejuvenated.
There was still a task to perform, the Devon goods still needed to be delivered to Slateport and I had two paths before me.
The first path led me back to the tunnel, where I would have to find a way through until I reached the cities on the other side and made my way to Slateport. The second one depended on the kindness of strangers. The kindness of one in particular, Mr. Briney, and if he would be willing to ferry me to my destination.
