Overwhelmed with embarrassment, I hurriedly apologized, “I didn’t mean it like that!

This tournament is especially important to me, so I hope that you’ll all do your best.”
“If Jonathan gets a good score, then Horthorn Trading Firm will show you some appreciation as well,” Tamara added.

Surprised, I asked, “Everyone is going to rest in the middle of the night. Wouldn’t it be a good idea to do a sneak attack on them now?”
“We can’t do a sneak attack now. It’s so dark, and we can’t see anything at all,” Tamara said. “Let’s just find a spot to rest.”
