Hunter tugged Annabelle closer as they made their way to the button. He was trying not to fall on his behind and look like a total fool. It was difficult using each other as balance, but they slowly and steadily made progress.
Annabelle moved with Hunter as they moved. She looked at their progress and said "Almost there." Once there, she pressed the button and the floor changed to brown and non-slippery. At the same time, a door opened up.
Hunter followed Annabelle. He was a bit wary of more traps that might make the ground open beneath them so he kept his eyes peeled on his surroundings rather than making much conversation. He eyed every crack and crevice with suspicion.
They walked through the chambered hall for a little bit until they came to a room with tiles that had different symbols on them. Some had skulls, some had leaves, some had fire and some had Xs. Annabelle blocked Hunter in case he accidentally wasn't paying attention.
Hunter didn't need the block, but he appreciated that she was trying to look out for him. "What do you think the tiles mean? Should we push them in a certain order?" Hunter asked, knowing that it was probably in vain since Annabelle most likely knew as much as he did, which was nothing.
Annabelle said "I don't know. Let's see." She used her trident and tapped some of the tiles. The skull and leaf tiles did nothing, but the fire tiles showed flamethrowers in the walls and flames shot out. the X tiles were too far out of range to test. Annabelle said "There's a path. Just stay off the fire tiles."
"Nice observation! Okay, let's do this," Hunter said as he started to carefully walk on the leaf and skull tiles. He tried to avoid X as well as fire, since they didn't know what the X tile would do. It was difficult to maneuver.
As they walked, Annabelle used her trident to check the X tiles, but nothing happened. This was suspicious so Annabelle didn't investigate further. For all she knows, it could trigger if they actually step on it.
"Alright, easy-peasy," Hunter said to Annabelle with a smirk. This reminded him of when they were kids and they'd hop over rocks to cross a small river to see he'd make it to the other side first. A lot of things reminded him of when they were kids, they probably spent an unhealthy amount of time together.
