Orphen felt all sorts of things bursting inside his skull, but he endured that too. He crept closer to the two, cracking his knuckles. “R-Right, so, since there’s danger, and the danger is dangerous, and in order for you to have a life to live, you need to not die...”

The two of them didn’t seem to be hearing a word he said, however.

“This sucks. I’m bored, my feet hurt, it’s all dark and moldy down here. What are we even doing here, anyway?”

“Sheesh. What, indeed? I’m paying a hefty tuition, too. How many days do you think it’d take to get back to Tafurem if I turned around now?”

Orphen quietly, and with all his strength, gripped Majic by his lapel and shook him back and forth, screaming, “I AM RESTRAINING MYSEEEEELF!”

“...You really aren’t,” Mädchen calmly pointed out.

Orphen froze and closed his eyes (though he didn’t let go of Majic’s lapels). He sucked a deep breath in, paused, and let it out. After doing that three times, he said quietly, “I’m sure you understand, but this is just my lot in life.”

“I think I’m starting to...” Mädchen groaned, an uneasy smile on her face. That look quickly turned serious, however. “Wasn’t that dangerous, though? Attacking without looking, I mean. Some of my men are still in here; they could have been in between you.”

“...I wouldn’t say so.” Orphen let go of Majic. He looked down the passageway, now empty of any presence, just a monotonous black, and closed his eyes. It wasn’t like he could see through the darkness, but he kind of gave off that image.

“No?” Mädchen asked dubiously.

He opened his eyes again and shook his head. “I shot at a height of three meters. It wouldn’t have hit a human.”

“Three... meters?” This time it was Majic who replied, startled. “It was that big?”

“Dunno. But...” Orphen put a hand on his hip and went on, calmly and slowly, as if saying the words to himself as well, “It’s not its size that you should be afraid of. It’s not like ones made for combat are gonna be bigger necessarily. I just keep coming back to this. This is a theater. It’s not a fortress. But why would the Celestials feel the need to make an underground theater below the theater proper? If we just knew that...”

“If we knew that?” Claiomh looked a little anxious.

Orphen looked at her and answered calmly, “If we knew that, we’d probably know the nature of the danger we’re in.”

The hall was a straight shot. No matter how far they went, there were no changes in the walls, floor, or elevation. Orphen had counted up to his 87th step, but then the earlier incident had occurred and he’d found it too much trouble to continue. It didn’t really matter.

He proceeded carefully... for a time, at least. They’d already been attacked once. Now he was just making sure to walk quickly, with long strides.

He signaled the three behind him to stop with his hand, then he stopped as well.
