And now you know why Emalia didn't appear in Chapter 2...
The next page will conclude the intermission - which means we'll get to chapter 3 soon and with it will come a surprise for you my dear readers :D (Let's just say being able to directly interact with you is the best thing of having a webcomic!)
Speaking of the next page: it's of course available on Patreon already, and it's definitely a nice counterweight for the bleakness here, if I may say so myself!
A new month also reset the voting statistics on Top Webcomics, for which I also wanted to all of you who voted for Soul's Journey last month! It was a blast seeing those numbers grow :D
