Little Grass-Tail suggests taking a shortcut to the Forest Navel that they have heard about, gesturing to a narrow tunnel through the thick underbrush.
An ordinary traveler would not know about such a passageway. However, as they had been living near the Hexnose Forest in the past, the Mole-Digger Tribe children have discovered useful routes such as this.
After having traversed through the hidden route, the trio emerge from the tunnel and find that they are now close to the Forest Navel. But their joy may be cut short, as Little Baldy suddenly begins to feel pain around their heart.
