Chapter 2.15 is the eighteenth chapter of Volume 2.
Ryoka has decided to become a Courier, and does some deliveries while Octavia brews her potions for Ryoka's delivery south, among them pepper potions and other nasty surprises that Ryoka entrusted her with.
As she and Fals are verbally sparring in the Runner's Guild, Garia stumbles into the room, having been intercepted by Bandits and nearly murdered. She was rescued by a Courier and then ran away to the Guild.
Ryoka talks to Octavia and returns to the Guild. Now the mysterious Courier has also arrived, and tells them that the [Bandits] are dead and his reports to the local [Guards] have been made. After quickly introducing himself and checking a local map, he moves out again, with Ryoka as a local guide to show him the right way. Soon after finding that path, Valceif leaves Ryoka in the dust.
