Whoops! you woke up a sleeping bear. (I warned you about that, didn't I?)
It appears to be a friendly bear, so you escape with your lives. Then you get a text from Taryd.
"Suckers! I can't believe you went the wrong way, following the crowd like a couple of sheep. It's like you don't know anything about dragons. Fear is a greater motivator than thirst, dummies. There's no way the dragon went towards a crowd of people."
Rema shrugs. "At least the dragon is safe."
"But at what cost, Rema? At what cost."
You get points for not giving up. Yay you! And the dragon was saved. Still, going into a dark cave was pretty stupid.
Also your arch-nemesis won.
