((I'm still here I think we were forgotten though...))
((I kjnew we shouldn't have separated. They must've gotten eaten by Irjarq. :P)))
(I forgot this existed. Sorry.)
Sharina frowns, crouching in front of Pantasma. "Go with Sam, okay? I'll be alright." With that, she gets to her feet, watching the wolf lope off after the boy. She glances at Rai, brushing her hair out of her eyes. "I'll take the path down the middle."
((Do you want me to power play Pantasma, Hearts?))
Sam glanced behind him as he heard pawsteps. He saw the wolf lope to him and come to a stop by his side. Sam smiled.
"You're coming with me? Okay. I guess Sharina could take care of anything in her way. She's pretty tough. All right. Let's go."
Sam started walking again, heading down the cave.
(Yeah. Go ahead. And someone can powerplay Sharina if I'm not on and you guys need her.)
Rai nodded and headed down the last of the unentered tunnels. Seriously, wasn't there any other way? She thought to Achi. "No, there wasn't. The tunnels needed to be searched so that we could find a way out." He said to her.
Juste sat down and crossed his legs, when his friends cme he wa sgoing to explore the vents more, he was going to wait here though until they did come.
"Why ya frien's ain't 'ere yet?" the African American boy asked,
"Cause they haven't found us yet." Juste said quietly,
"I bet 'ey ain't comin'! I bet ya a liar an' 'at ya jus' made i' all up!" the boy retorted, "But I my da's gonna come an' 'e's gonna git me outa 'ere. "e's gonna take me 'ome. An' 'e's gonna shoot an' bea' up any'ing 'at gits in 'is way!' the boy bragged. Juste slouched his shoulders, wishing he had a dad to come,
"See 'at's why I 'ink a liar, cuase ya ain't got no frien's 'at's comin', ya jus crawl 'rough a ven' ya prolly a spy fer it." the boy accused.
"I am not!" Juste insisted.
Sam limped along. So far all he could see was solid ice walls for a long ways. He and thw wolf silently walked on.
"Juste?" Sam whisper yelled after a ways. "Juste? Can you hear me?"
Sharina disappears down the corridor, her footsteps echoing faintly. "Juste?" she calls softly. She pauses, listening for a reply and shaking her head slightly.
"He's down one of these... At least he's not lost," she murmurs, running a hand through her hair before continuing down the tunnel.
Rai shivered but continued down the tunnel. "He's here somewhere," she said to Achi. "Juste!" she called. "Up there. What's up there?" Achi thought. "I don't know, I can't see that well." Thought Rai. "It's a door or a cage, I don't know which." He responded.
((THIS is the real Saving Christmas))
"Juste, are you down here?" Sharina calls softly, shaking her head. She was beginning to doubt it, beginning to wonder if she'd made the right decision in taking this tunnel. She could almost imagine the creature stalking her, waiting to pounce.
Sam continued forward until he reached a door. He peered inside through the bars on the window and gasped.
"Santa!" he shouted.
Santa was inside with his hands chained together and to a wall. He looked up as Sam called to him.
"Are you coming to torment me again, Irijraq?"
"No! I'm a kid, my name is Sam." Sam said. "Mrs. Clause sent us here to find you. Me and my friends."
Santa looked uncertain.
Rai followed Achi toward the door or cage, reaching out blindly, she was able to determine that it was a door. She jiggles the handle, only to find it locked. Taking a few steps back, she summons a 9mil to her hand and fires three shots until that door opens. Slowly she opened the door and called out, "Juste! Can you hear me? Où êtes-vous?"
"Just a minute sir and I'll get you out." Sam looked around, trying to find something that would help him. He was a boyscout, but none of his badges had been over lock picking or something useful like that. "I sure wish the girls were here," he muttered. " I bet they would know what to do...."
