    Damours in many ways might have been considered prolific in his equal treatment of the fairer sex. With one hand he pointed to Mehnua. “Push.” He grunted, laying both palms against the stony door and putting his back into the task with Verdun.

    Perhaps it was less about equality… and more about opening a door.

    The hellion raised her eyebrows. The two muscly men actually needed her help? A feeble female? She snorted at the demand, smirking with a cocked brow to the man hunter.
    “What? Little stone too heavy?” She prodded, though the two had barely said a word toward her prowess. She tossed the whetstone back at Damours’ feet and twisted her head and shoulders that let her body scream out sickening pops from the air escaping between the vertebrae and joints. Mehnua’s bardiche was held tight to her sternum as she began a full force run with the right shoulder aimed toward the door.

    The two men’s pushing were yielding a result as the door slowly began to open, inch by inch. And as Mehnua rammed against it, adding her force to the others, the door opened with a long winded squeal as the hinges were moved more quickly than they were supposed to. If Mehnua did not stop charging, as her momentum would’ve made her continue despite hitting the door and opening it, she would trip over a rope that was held tightly from a wall to her right, and to a wall on her left held by shackles.

    The hellion’s charge did continue through the now opened passage but as gravity, inertia and momentum of physics would have it, the lack of an unmovable object caused the woman to careen into the floor with her shoulder, body tumbling over her head as hard contact was made with the floor just three inches from the tripwire. Her bardiche, if it may, would snag on the rope as it was lost from her grip to avoid impaling the exposed flesh of her stomach.
    Through the uncomfortable contortionism she just experienced, she landed on all fours with her haunches bent and her head low. Blood came from the scrapes that dragged down her right shoulder and bicep, pebbles embedded in the flesh. The look she’d given the two men from her animistic stance could make blood run cold.

    Damours watched on as his companion performed an amazing feat of graceful athleticism… barely containing his excitement. Unfortunately, this was not a magical, happy world where good things happened to bold and brave adventurers, it was a place where foolhardiness was rewarded with a short drop and a sudden stop.

    It was too much, he could barely contain the desire to cause a commotion. Instead he stood vigilantly and slowly raised his hands. Mirthlessly, he clapped without rhythm, giving Mehnua the applause she had earned.

    “Whoa, that was impressive! Bravo!” Verdun applauded with a smile, approaching Mehnua from behind, “Still. I think I’ve still got a spring in my step.” Verdun grinned, crossing his arms and looking down the hallway.

    The Bardiche did snag on the Rope, cutting it a bit, But nothing happened. Almost as if the rope was put just so Mehnua or anyone charging through the door to trip, nothing more. The hallway was broad as it was tall, being the same height of the door at 9ft. Banners were up on the walls every so often, along with chandeliers in equal number yet more spaces were set between them. It seems this place was used to hold mass events most likely, or a home to a wealthy individual. If Verdun looked at the Map he would find it coincided with the layout so far. Three ways were appearant if they continued on, Left, right, and forward. All three ways held no markings on them on the map, which meant all of them were barren but that was always viable to change for this map could be outdated.

    Mehnua stood from the dusty grounds while dusting off the leather bound to her body. She gave her injured shoulder a roll while an eye was winked toward the other two.
    “It was not a performance.” she stated with that charismatic smile of hers stretching out her cheeks as she pulled her blade from the floor and stood it at her side like a staff.
    “You lead, map man.” She waved a dismissive hand while spitting over her shoulder. “These ruins do not like Mehnua.”

    “Heh.” Damours agreed that these Ruins probably didn’t care for her and was fully aware they would likely be less than hospitable to him as well. He wondered if the tigress might live? A roaring beast as powerful and physically imposing as she was… might be prone to attract the ire of dangerous game.

    The Man Hunter picked up his whetstone, pocketed it and gripped his axe firmly in his gloved palm. His dander was up, blood had stained the stone and earth… the hunt had begun.

    With a loud inhale Damours sucked air into his lungs, ready to cry forth a battle cry to inspire his comrades into action.

    “Charge.” He said monotonously and quietly before silently plodding into the gloom.

    “I do believe that this Gnashor is… in the centre… right here.” Verdun tapped the circular room twice, which was stationed in the middle according too the map, “So.. I believe we should head forward, but it may be more dangerous. Which I don’t mind obviously.” Verdun grinned, rolling up the map and slowly stepping ahead of the group partially toward the hallway that led forward, deeper into the ruins.

    Verdun would find the hallway extremely dark, even for him. In a few moments he would find himself back to where he began, facing his comrades. If he looked back he would find the hallway he tried to walk through, imposing and even darker than before.

    The hellion only let out a hard and singular bark of laughter, throwing her head back toward the ceiling as she crossed an arm over the opposing elbow.

    “See? Map is useless. This place is making fool.” Mehnua squinted an eye and peeled her lips back into a toothy, mocking grin. “Tigerblood does not have time for headgames. Let us kill something else. Beast is not worth effort.” she stated while tapping her free pointer finger against the strung muscle of her bicep, shifting her weight to one hip.

    Damours took a torch from his side and ignited it, axe in one hand, light in the other. “No.” He grunted, slowly and cautiously making his was down the corridor, scanning for anything that might present itself as another trip wire or pressure plate.

    “Gnashor dies.” No bounty, no money. The Man Hunter needed money but what was equally important, is that he had a reputation. You did not leave contracts unfulfilled, it was simply bad for business… he could pick and choose his jobs certainly but a lot of work came via recommendation.

    Verdun was shocked to find himself directly back at the same position where he stood before, but this time his face was covered in shock and confusion, “Wha! Ho-How am I… Fuck it, this shit don’t make no sense.” Verdun spat in confusion and fuming anger, before calming himself so his veins didn’t show and his bone claws didn’t extend suddenly, “Alright, so where we gonna go? Left, right or forward? If we go forward we are heading directly toward the Gnashor but it will fraut with enemy activity I presume the closer we get too the centre. But then again, we could scour the left and right hallways just to test our mettle and familiarize ourselves with our fighting capability before we delve head first in the jaws of the beast.” Verdun proposed bitterly, tucking in the map in his pants and planting both hands on both hips.

    The lit torch burned away the shadows allowing the trio to see an odd, spinning mechanism on the floor. It was going in a specific speed which would make anyone which stepped on it be turned around without alerting the person. Most presumably this was why Verdun had not gone foward but returned to the others. Ahead, were the hallway split into the three ways was a stone statue positioned in the very center of the four directions. It looked like a knight that would be stationed In Front of the heirs residence, along with readable lettering the on the podium the statue was standing upon nothing else was notable about it.
