You have made a mistake by going into the shrine and are now worried that you may have upset the goddess Ishtar. This would be far worse than a few desert ghosts. Realising that you have wasted enough time, you take one last look at the shrine, in case the priestess is chasing you, and run back towards the track to Mari. Coming along the track you see a line of carts.

Do you chase after Nabium-malik or return to Sippar by cart?
