Darwin repeated his previous words in hopes that it would finally calm him down. Still he dreamt of his past, his near death experience, and his failure.

When Nicolaos had awoken and gave the command to enter the cave, Darwin pulled himself up and got ready as he followed the others underground.

With the damp air underneath and no visible sky above was making Darwin feel uneasy. Being an Avian it was unnatural for him to step into caves, let alone walk through a long tunnel.

Suddenly he heard the click and saw the trap. He noticed the bolt that scratched Jimmy's cheek was heading straight towards Darwin. In an instant, Darwin sprouted his wings. In the cramped tunnels he only managed to create a small gust, just enough to curve the bolt away from Darwin and into a wall. As fast as the Darwin's wings appeared, so did they disappear in same way. The only evidence left were a few feathers.

He looked around at the aftermath the trap did to the group yet showed no concern.

<scrape>... <scrape>... <scrapescrapescrapescrape>... <press>... <pull>... <untangle>... ... [?] <unravel [!] - scrape>

... ... <CLICK!> [twitch- ]... <~elth glother-!> ...   [?] ...


For time uncounted (by it, at least) it had simply been in the eternal moment before a sound breaks the silence. There was no self, nor language... just silence. Now, there came...sounds... sensations... an unravelling...[!]...perception of movements. They held no real significance save as a difference from before them... except the click. THAT was...drawing, pulling... What had no thoughts...felt. The trap was an old, and simple one, most likely set to slay those that would use the long passage to escape a battle they should have fought to the death, to allow those who knew where and how to...pacify the traps- to escape...the reason for it's being set was unimportant, and long forgotten... but for the silence...it was change.

Perceptions of wards...triggers...passages... began to link together. Not through action...more as normal sequence of interaction between ancient spell, created space...change...and the silence. No more intended than the slow accumulation of physical cues as one begins to stir from a deep slumber, but perhaps will still not waken from...

Without a cascade of sensation following the one...two anomalies [!], the silence eased back to null...but something was definitely changing... but not truly percieved...

Maria

Really, she hadn't believed in such irony. One moment, Nicolas is saying to watch for such traps, the next he's setting one off.

Maria was pushed harshly to the ground, only to notice that a bolt had been in the same spot she had been mere seconds ago. Looking at her savior, who was also on the ground, she could only quickly send her thanks.

She looked over the group, finding mostly everyone safe.

Her attention soon turned to Lissa and her leg.

"Alright, let's get going."

Hearing that, Ishman's eyes opened, and he "woke" from his trance. He took a deep breath, and let his Ki flow through his body, accelerating it slowly, but surely. It was the most basic of Ki-techniques. They called it Teikan Dou over here. At the temple it was called "Unsheathing the Sword", or atleast that was the most literal translation of it.

After the monk was comfortable that he had fully awakaned the ability, he stood up, and stretched out his back, arms and legs, feeling the good pain of muscles and tendons finding their limits. As he was doing that, the ki in his body flowed to his muscles, infusing them with strenght and hardening them. Ganshuu En to some, to Ishman it was "Wielding the Sword", though again the translation didn't quite match the original name.

Feeling the new ki-infused strenght in his muscles, Ishman readied himself for a fight, and followed Nicolaos, who was talking about something or other, to the tunnel. He considered waking up the Yok Dou ability, but it seemed unnecessary at this point. He'd use it when the fight would start.

Walking behind Cathair, who had a shield and thus a good person to have in front of you, the monk kept himself ready in case of traps.

"Any questions or suggestions?"

Apparently the enemy had some, as five bolts flew from a trap towards the group. But as Ishman had predicted, Cathair's shield came in use, and the monk didn't have to twitch a muscle to escape unharmed. Though he had spied a few interesting things. Like how the one bolt that had passed him had headed straight towards Nex, but by the time Ishman turned around, it was on the ground bloodied, though Nex seemed unfazed. Interesting.

Fiona kept watch through the hours that others spent digging or sleeping. She herself was too restless to sleep, her mind too active. She missed the sway of a ship's deck beneath her feet, the comforting groan of wood as it flexed with the tides, the warm fleece-lined hammock that had been made specially for her. Though she could be considered a combat veteran, Fiona always felt the pre-battle jitters that kept her awake. Her body could relax now with experience, but her mind remained aflutter. But, she reasoned, with everyone asleep or otherwise occupied, the group required at least one sentry. One never knows when the enemy might send the odd patrol.

The tunnel entrance was revealed eventually, and Fiona prodded Aidan with her foot to wake him. She strung her bow and rose to her feet, testing the draw and finding it satisfactory. Her dagger was loose in its sheath, secure, but easy to draw. The archer stretched a bit, warming up before the trek into the tunnel, and releasing some of the pent-up energy coiled inside her. She recalled that some warriors could harness their inner energies to enhance their abilities, and wondered if this was a similar sensation. I shall ask later, she decided as they entered the tunnel.

"Once we do find the guards, our primary plan is to attempt to kill them before they can trigger any defense mechanisms. We'll need bows and magic. Acan targets the mage, of course, if there is one. Estia, an explosive fire enchantment on your arrow, please. Fiona, you take care of anyone reaching for a switch or anything else that looks like a trigger. I can shoot an energy arrow, but only once, I can't cast that spell in rapid succession. Nex, you're our last resort. Hopefully you won't have to do anything, but be ready for anything. If they manage to trigger a collapse, we may need some heavy magic."

"If we fail, we'll try try to get out of the way when the tunnel collapses, and once it calms down, Harold will dig us through. Any questions or suggestions?" He finally looked over his shoulder as he said these last words.

Fiona merely nodded at her instructions, opening her mouth to ask whether she should try to scale the walls to open the gate (As a ship's hand, she was quite an agile climber) when she heard a <click> followed by the sharp hiss of projectiles in the air. She hit dirt, rolling to the corner where wall met floor and losing a couple of arrows in the process. She pushed herself to her feet, hissing at a sharp pain in the heel of her hand, and looked to find a cut from a stone from the floor. "It seems the enemy has first blood."

Slowly woken from her rest by the quiet bustling of the camp, Estia blinked, looking around the still dark encampment. She squinted as Nicolaos lit a torch, then stretched, feeling a tad bit sore after sleeping on the ground. After his briefing, she notched her bow with practiced grace and unconsciously slung the magical quiver over her shoulder. She made sure to note which of her arrows were enchanted with explosive capabilities, positioning them higher in the quiver for later.

The hole that Harold had dug was rather deep, indicating that this backdoor hadn't been used for centuries. The temperature seemed to drop a few degrees as she descended into the tunnel and she shivered a bit as she trotted along behind Setsuna and Maria. Nicolaos' torchlight felt dim up ahead, so she took out an arrow enchanted with a light spell, holding it out in front of her. It's enchantment radiated a small amount of heat and had a similar glow to the torchlight, without its customary wavering randomness.

They walked through the tunnel for a few minutes, listening to Nicolaos' briefing of the situation. Just as he had finished up, the click of a pressure plate echoed through the narrow tunnel. Estia immediately crouched down, hearing a bolt whistle past where her shoulder had been moments before. After a few agonizing seconds of silence, everyone sighed in relief, and Estia moved up towards the front of the group to check on Lissa, who had been hit in the leg. She called Maria up too, and they checked out how bad the wound was.

Acan stood near the entrance to the tunnel as everyone woke up and waited until most people had walked past. He joined on the tail of the group, pretty much alongside Nex. He didn't pay much attention to Nicolaos as the man gave his instructions. Acan knew exactly what was expected of him in just about any situation, and he had become very good at doing exactly as expected through the last dozen years.

Instead, Acan focused on the small stone in his, hand which would reveal any magical ward or trap on the way of the group. The rest hopefully would take care of the less familiar kind of traps, he thought... Just as someone's warning and a series of other noises reached his ears. Cursing the man set his back against the wall on his side and looked up from the stone, to see almost everyone take cover in a similar manner.

At first he thought that no bolts had come so far, but then he realized he'd heard a thud slightly behind himself and turned his eyes just in time to see Nex throw the bolt away. Acan frowned at this, but decided to say nothing in the end, knowing that Nex might not exactly appreciate any attempts to help. This wound would hardly be worse than all the others before it. The man sighed sadly at these thoughts coursing through his head as he looked at the old mage.

Nicolaos heard the clicking sound and felt something give in under his right foot. Instinctively he knew he was in trouble, but not knowing where the danger would come from, he froze, heart beating in his chest like crazy. The next moment Lissa reached her hand and pulled him behind her with that amazing strength of hers. Ungracefully he fell on his bottom and witnessed close-up how one of the bolts burrowed in in the unarmoured part of the half-dragon girl's leg. Luckily she had her natural scale armour, so it didn't seem to go in deep.

He turned to look behind, raising his torch higher. Two of the bolts were nowhere to be seen, hopefully flown past them all and into the darkness. One was stuck in Cathair's shield, another one lying on the floor nearby. Some of the group had thrown themselves down on the ground, but Nex, Jimmy, Darwin and Ishman were standing, Cathair and Aidan were crouched behind their shields, and Harold and Acan were flat against the walls. Everyone was moving, no one apart from Lissa seemed to be equipped with a bolt, and no one was groaning in pain.

He spotted Maria on the ground, slowly getting up and looking around. "Maria! Lissa needs a healer." Nicolaos was a decent healer himself, but Maria was much better, and so the job usually fell to her. "Anyone else injured?" he asked, standing up and looking over the group one more time.

When no one piped up, Nicolaos turned his attention back to Lissa. "Are you alright? You probably saved my life just now. Thank you. And... I'm sorry." He dared not look her in the eyes. He feared what he might see in them. This was hardly the first time someone had got hurt, but it was rarely this directly his fault. Frustrated, he shut his eyes, squeezed his free hand into a fist and hit the wall close by, cursing his carelessness. Sharp pain made him vince, but he'd not hit hard enough to risk breaking bones.

Lissa reached for the bolt that had burrowed itself a bit into her leg to pull it out. She muttered a few words to ease the pain while pulling it out. It didn't burrow itself deep into the leg so it was fairly easy to pull it out. Once it was out she answered to Nicolaos. "Yes, i'm alright. The bolt didn't burrow itself deep into my leg, so don't worry about it." She took her sword of from her back so she could sit down, to make it easier for Maria to heal the wound. After she had laid down the sword, Lissa sat down on the ground and started to hum a bit on a song from her childhood.

Nex was not pleased with the outcome. As the group went out to attend the wounds and listen to Nicolaos, Nex's focus was somewhere else. It was weird but with each step Nex had taken, his pain had grown stronger at a faster rate than it usually has. Being underground didn't help but he still felt an ominous presence. Maybe it was something in the castle or something but there was definitely a great source of black magic and Nex was walking towards it.

"Interesting" Nex thought. A presence such as this could only mean two things, both of which interested old Nex. Maybe it wasn't such a bad idea after all to join this fight.

"I feel a disturbance in the force" Nex said.

Jimmy reached up to touch the cut on his cheek with a wry smile on his face while musing to himself "Maybe next time i should use Teikan Dou at the first sign of danger".  After a quick look around to make sure everyone was OK Jimmy's eyes came to rest on Nicolaos.

After watching Nicolaos punch the wall in frustration Jimmy walked over and laid a hand on his shoulder.  "Don't worry about it to much" he said. "Its not your fault. Anyone of us could of triggered that trap".  After those words Jimmy moved away and started to lean nonchalantly against the wall while Lissa's wound was healed.

Maria

"Please hold still Lissa," Maria said quietly. "This may hurt a bit."

She slowly began to heal the marred skin, watching carefully for any changes in the skin. Slowly, the wound began to scar over.

"It'll scar for a while," Maria informed her.

"Thank you," Lissa replied. She smiled slightly to Maria and got up towards the front of the group. Maria bit her tongue.

She had forgotten to tell her the scar might not go away.

Setsuna

((Sorry for delay between the two posts.))

Setsuna looked around at the group. Only Lissa had been hurt severely, yet she shook off the pain as if it was nothing once Maria had healed it. He did notice it left a nasty scar though.

'Shame...' he thought placidly. He'd keep an extra eye out for her this battle. Not that'd she actually need it.

“Another day... in hell...” Luna sighed as she walked through the fortress of Beil, so many eyes watching her as she just walked past but those looks were not of admiration but of fear, distrust and malice. Luna looked around carefully as she walked forward not letting on that she was watching them, watching them talk but not only that she could hear every venomous word they said as she walked through this hall aligned with pillars adorned with strange runic markings.

“These... are my allies...” Luna sighed under her breath as she had begun to think of what would happen with those distrustful and weak minded... allies of hers and that was when the thoughts flooded her mind all she could do then was let out a faint and forced smile. “I’m supposed to... protect them...” Luna thought to herself wondering why she did this just because someone had told her they needed her abilities. So as Luna leaned against one of the pillars and stood in the darkness that the pillar’s shadow had produced, she considered what she should do.

Darwin lost his breath for a second. He created the gust too quickly; his breath was short for such a small gust.

He walked towards the bolt as his breathing evened out.

He looked over the group, watching some run over to the injured. Almost like the war. Woman screaming, children crying, the wounded being healed as quickly as possible; death, corpses, and agony lined the streets.

He froze at the sudden thought. He shook his head as Nicolas spoke.
