"Not a half bad ride am I?"
"Thank you." Keres responded, her voice low. She was glad to be off of the boy now. His scales felt strange under her hands. She glanced around as she stood up straight. The paralysis seemed to be fading away enough that she can at least stay up now.
The strange swordsman and Ryia were standing near each other. Had they been talking? Plotting? Romancing? She was curious, she couldn't deny, but she doubted she'd get anything out of either of them. She'd just have to watch their interactions from now on.
She glance over as Hob walked up to Gilly...with her boot. The girl glanced down and only just realized she was missing one. That explained why her foot hurt so much...Keres walked over to the two and bent down, picking up her boot. "Thank you Hob." She said and patted the sheep's head.
"um, I apologize for, well...that you had to go through that, and I couldn't do anything about it..."
"Wasn't needed." Keres said as the girl approached. She didn't want Ryia to feel guilty. It all turned out fine in the end. Though she couldn't help but feel a bit of disappointment. That was wrong, she knew, these people barely knew her and that some of them came down to get her was big on its own. Still, she couldn't help but wonder what they thought of her, herself. She had to assume they came to get her because they were already down three and couldn't afford more. It was a lonely thought.
But Keres was used to lonely.
Damien, for his part, was much more animated. "Well look here, the damsel has been rescued, good job out there team." There was a sarcastic edge to his voice and it seemed that he was teasing them when he followed with, "Took the scenic route I see." He glanced at the newly made hole in the wall.
He stepped back towards the wall, eyes on the two silent members of the group. Anis and Lindow had arrived last. So even the trusting Ryia felt something off about that guy. What could this unnatural feeling be?
Just then Flux reappeared next to Keres. "Well that was uncomfortable!" It said. "Boy was that weird. That thing's venom made the connection between us all slimy feeling...Hey, how's everyone else doing? The snake didn't get to you too did it?" Flux darted around towards the other Chosen, speaking to the Spirits themselves to check up on them.
