Xing Caverns

Post by admin on Sun Jan 30, 2011 11:37 pm

Dark caves on the outskirts of Xing. Though Xingese have lit up posts of fire every so often in them, there are many places where no light is seen and the traveler must use torches. Deep inside these caves is a temple left from an ancient civilization.

Ace waved his torch around the mouth of the cave. "Boy, it is very dark," Ace frowned. "I am not a fan of the dark."

Rei glared at Ace ahead of her, arms crossed. "Then why did you decide to come over here?"

"Perhaps he's hoping we came prepared after being snatched up off the streets," Dwyrin suggested innocently.

Caves. Why did I think he meant something else?? Like, a tunnel?? Or a mine?? No. Caves. Dark, cold, cramped caves. Wonderful.

"Because this is the way," Ace smiled. "Let's go, ladies first, please! Plus if Rei goes in last she'll run away when we're not looking."

"Kidnapping," Rei muttered to herself, going into the cave ahead of Ace. "That's a new one."

She looked as far down into the cave as she could, but the light did not travel very far. "He'll be bored in no time. I hope."

Following Rei into the cave, she felt like she was being encased in some tomb. There was no quick way out of a cave if you needed one.
Time to put on my big girl face and get over it, she thought, trying to relax the tension in her muscles.

"Do you know anything about this ancient race we're looking for??" she called back to Ace.

"Yes, I do!" Ace said as they walked through the cave. "They're apparently one of the oldest races on Earth. They're language is not easy to translate, but is similar to Xingese. So Rei can't read it."

Ace threw his hands in the air. "I'm so not bored!"

"I can read Xingese!" Rei retorted, spinning to face the man. "Just because I can't speak it doesn't mean I can't read it."

Dwyrin - who had been behind Rei - stopped short as Rei spun angrily towards Ace, and almost crashed into her.

"Whether you can read it, isn't the question," she said hoping to quell the incipient argument, "but whether or not we can all follow any direction it might give."

"Dwyrin is right," Ace said. "It could be complete rubbish. But I was told that this may also be the key to big things. Or it may be filled with treasure."

"Like I care," Rei said, turning again and stalking into the darkness. She listened, hearing three sets of footsteps echoing off the walls and ceiling. The air was still and damp, just as a cave normally was. She sighed, then gritted her teeth. "How far in is this place supposed to be?"

In the silence after Rei's question there was a rhythmic pounding noise coming from somewhere deep in the tunnels, and Dwyrin put her hand on the wall to see if it was vibrating the walls at all. Or to see if there even was a noise - she was quite possibly just paranoid.

"I have no clue, Rei," Ace laughed. "I don't even know if any of this exists. But following legends is what I do! Turning legend, into fact~" Ace began singing to himself.

"Hard to turn this legend into fact if it isn't fact already," Rei quietly. She could have sworn she heard something other than their footsteps, but the echos made it difficult to listen for much more.

Dwyrin started down the tunnel again, assuming they would follow. She was running her fingertips lightly over the abrasive rock wall as she walked and was listening, still, for that sound. Suddenly the wall felt different. Smoother, somehow. She halted, abruptly and turned to tell her companions of this detail, when there was a loud rumble behind them.

Ace followed behind Dwyrin and dragged Rei with him. "What's that noise?" Ace asked. "It's um, getting louder, yeah?"

Ace suddenly started running. "Is it a cave-in? Will I be locked forever with you two honeys?"

Rei slapped Ace in the back of the head. "No, we'd just use alchemy to get back out. So, do we run in or out?" she shouted, trying to be heard over the rumbling.

A small chunk of rock had dislodged itself from the ceiling and fallen to hit her on the shoulder. She could faintly hear other such pieces hitting the floor around them. As a shield for her head, she thrust her arm over the top of it.

"We can't go out! I'm pretty sure that's where the noise started!"

Ace dug his finger into the ground and drew up a circle. He pressed his hands down and a moment later a wall had been created behind them to protect them from the cave in.

"Keep running!" Ace yelled. "That should slow the cave in a little."

"Forward, then," Rei said, running farther into the cave. "Well, we'll get wherever we're going faster, I guess."

She ran on down the unnel and came to a fork. She took a left. AFter a bit more running the rumbling seemed to subside and she slowed but somethign was off... She didn't hear the footfalls of Rei and Ace. Indeed, when she turned around, there was no sign of them.

Of course

{Dwyrin out for now}

Ace stopped running after the rumbling finally ceased. "Where are we?" Ace asked Rei. "Where's Dwyrin?"

Rei looked around, panting. She could not find the woman anywhere. She frowned, concerned for Dwyrin's safety and for her own safety. "We lost her while we were running. I didn't hear her scream or anything, so I can only assume she must have gone down a side tunnel or something."

She crossed her arms and looked at Ace. "Do we go back and look for her?"

Ace sighed. "I am saddened. A poor maiden is in distress. But I built a wall over there, so there's nothing to go back to. We need to find her, though."

"You built a wall?" Rei repeated in confusion, then shrugged it off. "Believe me, I want to find her, but if we can't get over there, then I suppose the best we can do is continue forward."
