Adonis followed Yume and pocketed her sharpie. "Ughh I hope we don't run into a nest of rats," Adonis says as she shivers from the cold. She tries to breath as little as possible to avoid smelling putrid air.
After walking around the seemingly endless labyrinth that was full of gross unspeakable sludge, Danny noticed marks on the wall, and they weren't the "X" Mark's they had left behind. They reminded Danny of lashes, like that of a whip on a person's body. Or like that of someone aggressively swinging a blade at it. The thought of the ambiguity of the marks gave Danny chills. "You guys see these? Maybe were getting closer. Be on high alert. We don't want to get ambushed by this guy." Ironic. Danny thought to himself. After all, they were down there to pretty much ambush the tentacle guy. But he tried to focus on the actual reason behind it, which was to gain information on NEST, more so than just randomly attacking someone. Especially this guy. Although he threw Danny, this guy had some sort of innocence to him...
So sense we are going to running into naydren soon, have this art that i spent a week on just for this
Yume shivered slightly and his glow flickered. When it did, he noticed something and stopped. "Uh. One second guys." He then turned his light off, only to find out the water had taken on a blue green glow. "Yeah that cant be good.
(That's so cool pheonix!!)
"Ohhhh boy. So either the water is so dirty that it's become radioactive.. or that string guy is close," Adonis says, lowering her voice to a whisper on that last part as she looked around cautiously.
Danny did as Adonis did and lowered his voice. "Keep moving forward, quietly." Danny slowed his pace, but not too much that it would be obvious and water would be sloshing around everywhere. He kept it to slow, quiet plunks. Then he felt something around his ankles. He froze and grew white. He slowly lifted his right leg to find random garbage and waste tangled up around it. He let out a quiet sigh of relief and untangled it and set it back away from everyone else. He struggled to get his other ankle up. "oh s---." Danny mumbled to himself
(That is really good. Hey, would you like for me to make an artist tribute of you on YouTube using your art? I'll give you full credit.)
Alice whispered "I guess the glow will make seeing him easier. Unless he can turn it off." She then saw a group of rats opposite of them and whispered to them "Have you guys seen a glowing tentacled person anywhere?" One rat answered "Yeah, he went that way." and pointed left.
If you want to, go ahead!)
Thank you mini for giving naydren an opportunity to pull some horror movie s---.)
The thing wrapped around dannts left ankle turned out to be one of naydrens tendrils, which then tightened and quickly pulled danny off his feet and though the water down the tunnel at top speed. Akumu quickly shifted to his avian form to follow while yume became a flood light
Danny just disappeared, it all happened so fast that Adonis would've probably missed it if she blinked. "Ohhh, that's not good!" She says as she tries to quickly maneuver her way through the mucky water and follow them. Adonis wasn't confident enough in her teleportation powers to do it in a dark tunnel, if she made a wrong move she could end up in the dirt rather than in the tunnel, then she'd panic.
Danny sputtered at coughed. He was under water for a bit, and the tentacle dragged him at a fast speed. His vision was blurry, and dripping with sewer water. "I can't wait to shower after this." Danny said to himself, as his vision finally came to. He was upside down, face to face with Naydren. "Hi remember me? I'm just as shocked to see you as I was last time!" Danny said as he leaned forward, grabbed the tentacle around his ankle and delivered a small shock to Naydren. He was proud of himself for the quip he had come up with. Too bad no one was around to hear it though.
Naydern yelped when he was shocked and flung danny into a wall. "Your not very nice!" Naydren said, sounding upset as he started unraveling his threads from around himself, turning himself rightside up
Adonis moved a lot quicker with Alice guiding her. She made sure to stick close to Yume, since he was their only light source. Eventually she could make out voices, not that far away from them. "Okay, we're catching up! Danny, hold on!" Adonis shouts. She hoped he could look after himself for a bit longer until they could reach him.
"Oh boy." Danny said as he took a battle stance. When his friends eventually caught up to him, he stood next to them side by side. "We need to get him to the surface." Danny's eyes darted around the location. There were openings from runoffs with water pouring in all around them. They weren't big enough though..
