As he led the party through the halls of the caverns, he began to doubt his choice but let show only confidence in his steps and his demeanor to the situation. He seemed like a leader and a skilled warrior and he hoped that for the benefit of all that he could carry it to the end. He ignored the light pain of his mostly healed shoulder and kept tabs on those behind him and also said nothing as they progressed through the darkness, only glancing at the crow when it expressed its unease. He could relate but he said nothing still.
zero follows close behind knowing exactly wat thier feeling but keeps trekking through the cavern looking at the stalagmites and the small bugs that dweeled within the place. looking to blair not saying a word but keeps close behind her looking around for any danger
While the other's kept quiet, Senna did the same.
She didn't know what else to do other than follow along and keep tense; her slender shoulders hunching forwards as her knees started to lower themselves to the ground as she took on more of a predatory stalk. Her movements becoming lithe and fluid as she trailed behind the other beings - loose strands of jumbled platinum blonde and ivory fell around her pale, albino frame.
Slender fingers curling around the bamboo stick more firmly as a sudden paranoia threatened to overwhelm her usually quiet, laid back memo, she let her eyes close for a second as she moved forwards daintily.
A light whisper passed my lips involuntarily and it was soft and nigh almost unheard. I don't think we'll make it...
A sadness had entered my eyes though no one could see them as all of the four stalked through the caverns at a tight unease it seemed. Dread was next then and from there further silence.
The air became colder as we seemed to descend and things seemed to be lesser and lesser the farther they went down.
Bugs did not crawl, plants did not grow, no light could penetrate its darkness.
It almost seemed to be an end.
"Do not say that milady," replied Vaeriil a little to harshly. He refused to think that it was any sort of end for them and knew, simply knew, that the four would prevail in their escape from his twin brother Scythe. None knew of this connection, and he was glad, but that would not stop him from protected his lady or the other two that followed him as he guided them to safety.
His grip tightened on his bow but he said nothing else as he chose carefully where they were going.
hears a crack behind us as an axxe comes swigning and i grab balir and senna and pulls them down missing us just inches and i spin to see a big guy with a huge battle axe glareing at us* dammit knew it was a trap RUN! *grabs balir and senna and looksa t veriil
Things were going way too fast for Senna to comprehend, so she was unprepared when she was roughly taken hold of and dragged away as an opponent attacked out of nowhere.
Now shrugging off Halo's grip almost instantaneously, she let her hands tighten around her bamboo stick but she kept it as her side, and forced herself not to retract the blade unless necessary.
Turning heel, she made sure that Blair went first as she exaggerated to move quickly with her hand that was open, her fingers curling into a familiar fist of annoyance as her fangs slipped from their hibernation and showed their full extent.
He acted the moment Zero turned to deflect the ax that had attempted to make it's mark on him. He bared four extended fangs and his eyes lit with the whitest of fires as he pushed Blair behind him then motioned for Senna to get behind him as well.
"Take care of this! We do not have time to linger. Escape when we're far away if you must but hold it off for at least ten minutes so we can make a good distance."
His eyes narrowed at a being that had approached Zero from the side and knocked and launched an arrow before anyone could blink and turned to disappear into the caverns, only going slow enough for the women to catch up as he wove the paths to freedom.
When I noticed the first attack from the very large monster, Senna's battle stance, Zero's retaliation, and Vaeriil's disappearance to guide, I took off after my white haired ally after allowing my eyes to linger on Zero not but a few more seconds than necessary. I too disappeared into the darkness, only glancing back to see if Senna had decided to follow and drew a weapon of my own, making a feather from my white crow into a white feather blade the cast a soft silver glow into the darkness. Soft and warm magics emanated from the blade and myself as our trek into the caverns became worse and worse.
"OH YEA SURE LEAVE ME HERE TO FEND IT OFF NICE GOING!" i yelled as i dodges another swing of the guys ax ane drew my blade and chants in an old tounge known in my family adn the blade glows and swings with quickly and swiftly blowing the monster backwards intot he cave walls and runs after the group, hearing the monster roar and the thuds of its larg feet bashing agiaisnt the helpless cave floor knockign some stalagmites off the celing crashing around me as i ran eventually one hits me int he shoudler the pointed tip penetrates into my flesh as i grunt and hold my shoulder
