Avalon had finally calmed down to the extent that he could talk again and said "Can we just get what we came in here for and leave?" He wanted to get out as soon as possible so as not to see more stuff like that.
"What did we even come for?" Finn asks with a frown, tears threatening to spill from his eyes, the poor frightened soul. He could've burned the demon to dust, but he didn't want to risk burning down Murry's house as well.
Finn felt so guilty and useless. Now that he thought about it, it was also his fault for playing in the mirror, and also his fault for leading his team into Murry's house in the first place. He felt like such an idiot! How stupid, how useless.
"Sin, what the hell, snap out of it!" Arwyn commanded harshly. She really wasn't good with children, so she has unconsciously reverted into a rude and closed off person. The sliver of care that Arwyn had for Sin and the team was gone now.
Murry picks up ax-Gineye and walks over to Sin. "It's okay, child. Follow me back to the living room," Murry says gently.
Arwyn picks up her knife shakily. Her eyes were suddenly dark and cloudy. She takes three steps, then promptly drops down into a squat position and holds her hands over her face.
Avalon could tell Finn was upset and held him close to him. He wanted to make him feel at least a little better cause he wasn't exactly sure why they were here at all. He rubbed Finn's shoulders to help him calm down.
Sin finally resumed control and followed Murray to the living room. They had a large burn on their left cheek. It looked demonic in origin. They were shaking with fear. Though they still felt an ungodly rage.
Finn wrapped both arms around Avalon silently. He wasn't the crying type, and he certainly didn't want his teammates to see how upset he was. ..Strange. He'd never had a dad before- and even though Avalon might be too young to be considered one, this was about as close as Finn could get.
Aspen kicks Arwyn's shin. "Get up. We get it, trauma or whatever. We still gotta get a move on, though. Don't make me carry you," Aspen says with a haughty expression. Arwyn surprisingly does as he says without even insulting him or hitting him.
Once everyone was back in the living room, Murry sits down criss cross on the floor and sets down ax-Gineye next to him. "Now, I suppose you're all wondering about what Rita told me to tell you. Unfortunately she couldn't be here herself, for she's a woman with many things to do."
Murry nods at Avalon. "This whole ordeal is quite peculiar. You see, Rita is in charge of directing groups to the wizard. She hasn't sent one for many months though. In fact, I think a year has already passed." Murry says. "At first, I was nothing but her familiar, but she had the power to give me sentience."
Though this would be a moment for Arwyn to cut in with something rude or snarky, she was dead silent. Aspen seizes this moment, though. "Quiet there, Arwyn? You were the one that was obssessed with Rita in the first place. Not to mention that knife you threw in the portal started this whole mess, and now the tension is so thick you could slice right though it," Aspen declares accusingly.
Arwyn ignores him.
Murry clears his throat. "Anyway, she wanted me to tell you all that at the halfway point, she'll be waiting for you. She seems to really believe that you guys can make it to-" Arwyn finally says something and cuts him off. "That it? Thanks for the info. Let's go now," Arwyn says, standing up.
Avalon said "It's rude to interrupt Arywn. Murry isn't done yet, we need to stay and listen until he is finished with what he was saying. Avalon found it pretty incredible that they were only traveling for two days and somehow they were already at the halfway point.
