"Hey!" Herrik shouted as Ire was gaining quite a lead. "Don't you leave without me!" The heavy plated man then lurched himself to a surprisingly fast run, despite the weight of his armor. Albeit not being able to get in front of Ire, Herrik still somehow managed to keep somewhat close to Ire. "You won't get all the glory of felling any beast we might meet!" He exclaimed, still keeping a small smile on his face.
"Ha, I promise to leave some of them to you then... Hahaha!" Ire looks back at Herrik, then looks back forward and picks up his pace. "I used to know this temple like the back of my hand... And if I remember correctly... then the exit should be..." He stops in his tracks, marking an arrow on the ground, "EVERYONE, THIS WAY!!!" he yells back at the group as he began down this new path... slow enough to not leave Herrik too far behind him...
"Hahaha, you are all hilarious. I picked the perfect group." The admin said. "However, I don't like the idea of you being quite so omnipotent 'Miss Chief', I think I'll take away one of your many powers right now, you have to breath oxygen just like everyone else, and just like everyone else any exposure to harmful smoke or chemicals will be your downfall!"
The admin then went over to where John was. "You're disco is quite something, but how about we add something to it? Whenever you dance and disco I will grant you the ability to summon and control water at will, have fun with it!"
Herrik having no time to react, simply hit Ire while he froze, hitting him and effectively falling on his arse. He quickly got up, drawing his sword. "What in blazes, is happening?" He shouted, confused. "We have no time to waste!" The armored man shouted furiously at the group. "Fools! Will one of us have to perish in this foul place until you realize that dying here is a real possibility!" He turned to Ire once more and attempted to hoist him up on his shoulder to carry him towards the exit the frozen man had designated.
*Cough* *Wheeze* What the hell is this?! Suddenly I'm having a hard time breathing with all this soot and- wait, why am I breathing in the first place? Ohh, that's right. My memory is foggy, so I don't remember much the details. Some part of me tells me that I can put aside breathing altogether, because I'm special or something. Well, I do have a bunch of tails compared to everyone else... But I think I'm here because I wanted to understand humans better. Wait, humans? I'm not human, am I?
"Hey, mister uhhhhhhhhh.... Are you trying to make me *cough* less cute or something?! This is so unfair, how come those guys" I point to 14 and Ragnarok "are just fine while I'm having my freshness drained *cough cough* away?! Don't be so mean!" Guess I'll suck it up and breathe this crap for now, this guy seems to hate cute little girls!
I pick myself up, get some dust and ash off my dress, and proceed to float to where the exit is. I can float? Cool.
Why did they stop? Zander asked himself, upon noticing that Ire stopped and Herrik had fallen, but not being close enough to see why, Zander had no choice to press on further. It was slow going with all of this smoke, as he had to stop every few moments to gasp for air. He was getting closer to the two fighters, but it struck him as odd that he still wasn't moving. Unless... Zander glancing around, until he saw Ragnarok. That guy said something earlier as all the fire seemed to stop. Maybe he has a power that allows him to freeze things in place? Zander felt himself getting lost in thought, and slowing down. He cut all thoughts and continued to run towards the exit.
John looked at the admin incredulously. If this is true I shall dance a rain dance and ignore that mans request. He then turned up his music and proceed to dance and jiggle around spraying water everywhere.
Herrik was running, but was startled by Ire's sudden unfreezing and let out a girly scream. "I mean," He started, regaining his focus and kept on running keeping Ire on his shoulder. "The forest, or room, or whatever you want to call it, is burning. And I was running aw- I mean, relocating so we don't burn to a crisp." He stated, making it sound as if it was nothing worthy of note, trying to hide the fact that he had sounded more like a little girl than a noble.
Ire begins to get annoyed, "I knew that! I meant WHY ARE YOU CARRYING ME!!!" he broke away from Herrik's grasp, standing upon his own two feet. He turns to 'miss chief' who was also feeling the repercussions of the fire. He quickly runs to the fat man still dancing, and notices how it controlled water. "You! Dancing man! Keep that up! I'll help too!" Ire harnesses the light of the fire, using it to imbue his power into the man. This power has some unforseen effects on the man, not only giving him tons of energy but also changed his appearence. His belly disappeares, replaced with a 6-pack, his head topped with an afro, and his chest trimmed and styled. He looked like an entirely new man.
Getting bored with the current progress of things, I decide to blow a hole in the wall through the use of a spontaneous explosion, using the leftover oxygen in the room as a catalyst. Ready... Set...
Thus, a hole was blown into the wall giving us safe passage to the next room, along with a new supply of oxygen. Although, for the duration of my creating the explosion, I did steal everybody else's air momentarily. I wonder if anybody passed out? That would be funny. I giggle as I float my way into the next room.
Ragnarok blinked to Ire and stopped him in his tracks. He put a finger on his Ire's head.
...Ah, yes. So you are Nodney... The one who controls the mind of this second-class abomination, obsessed with a goddess that isn't even his. How pathetic. Don't try anything stupid like you have in the past with another man named "Wick" or you will suffer a terrible fate.
