Mai's expression quickly shifted from mildly curious to mildly annoyed as she failed to comprehend the language the note was written in.

Please tell me she didn't send us here just to retrieve this thing, she thought to herself, rubbing her temples with one hand while grabbing and placing the "Gem of Gods and Demons" onto her forehead in place of her familiar headband, which she stuffed into a pocket for the time being. Only then did she make a second attempt to read the note.
