He was afraid for two different reasons. One, it was one of those inhuman things luring him into a trap.  That actually would have been expected, and he would deal with it. It was what he had come to expect from this world.

The other was much more scary, and had actual facts behind it. Bast had not been hurt when she went down the tunnel, she had been helped. Which could only mean...what? That was Emily's ghost waiting for him?

He moved forward, feeling his eyes water for the first time in years. For reasons other than a sand storm. He nearly dropped his weapons, but managed to put them away with shaky hands.

As he walked, as in a trance, he wondered if she knew what he had become. A monster in human form, someone who killed for profit. He could make some sort of excuse about what sort of people he killed...but they where still people.

He tired to say something to her, but the words would not come. He shut mouth tight, lest the horrors spill out and never stop. His cheeks where soaked, and he heard a sob burst from him before he caught himself.

Despite all that, he followed her...

It appears there is no other way out of this room, the tunnel just lead to this specific hideyhole. There are stacks of boxes,packing pellets are strewn all of the floor and there are mountains of popped bubblewrap surrounding the piles of stolen things.

Rage moves deeper in,struggling through tunnels that are to small for him when suddenly the tunnel opens up into a giant room or what was once several rooms.Many of the walls appear to be knocked down and there are several holes in the ceiling.Crude slides have been fitted to allow transit between levels. Rage can't help but notice the whole place is on a slight slant,nothing that would effect movement but kinda disorienting.  Mats,toys and an assortment of other junk, He even spies a massive TV hooked up on a wall...somehow still working.

The walls and floors are all decorated with various art,skill ranging from simple fingerpainting and graffiti to massive murals and frescoes stretching across the walls and ceiling.

It is completely empty and completely silent apart from a slight dripping sound that cracks like thunder in the silence of the room.

Hmm. Maybe there was a reason, or maybe the idea was just to separate Rage and her. Well, time would tell. Bast gathered up the stuff just in case, then headed back to the main complex.

As Bast moves back down the tunnel a bright flash envelopes her, her ears pop as if the pressure just changed sharply and a ferocious array of colours seems to melt off the walls either side of her.

A girl,not much younger than Bast appears to be,stands in front of her. It is not a girl she recognizes.

Rage hears a noise above him,accompanied by a fine trickle of rock dust.

Rage reflexively steps back, thinking the rock roof above him might collapse. Was this ghost trying to cut him off from Bast? It knew his real name...why would Emily do that?

Rage steps back.
It probably saves his life.

A gangly shape slams down from above Ezekiel,a serrated piece of metal scything through the air that just a few seconds earlier was occupied by Rage's head.

The child rushes forward slashing forward with the shiv.

Back in the tunnel the girl shakes her head and gestures behind Bast.

He quickly heads back to where he came from. This was a trap, and he had to get Bast out of it somehow.

Bast turned, stepping back so that she could see both the 'new' girl and look behind her.

A pile of boxes rocks dangerously before blasting forth as if drawn by a magnet.

They go wide,barely missing Bast and exploding into a pile if splinters and packing foam against the cave wall.

Nat stands there,obviously hiding amongst the junk of the room. He scowls at the fact that Bast is still standing.

He always was lousy shot.

To much brute force, not enough finesse.

His scowl becomes a grin as several of the wooden splinters rise and aim at Bast.

The girl looks worried,helpless.

As Rage backtracks he catches a quick glimpse of the Child looking slightly nonplussed,as if surprised Rage didn't try to kick the fuck out of him.

"CHILL THE FUCK OUT!" He roars, moving to the other child and pinning them against the wall. He did not want to hurt a kid, but he could put girl in a sleeper hold and knock them out without causing any lasting harm.

OOC-
14:42, Today: Ezekiel Rage rolled 11 using 2d6+3.  Go aggro-threat.

Rage turns and plows into the child,swamping her up using his superior size.
Suprisingy enough she seems to match his strength and even surpass his anger.
She defiantly has the edge when it comes to foul language.

She wriggles,squirms,spits,bites in sensitive and attempts to kick in even more delicate spots.

"Geroff me you wolf shithead! I'll show kick your balls so hard they'll fly through your head and kill you!"

She continues to scrabble enthusiastically but ineffectually before starting to black out due to Rage's sleeper hold.

"Nat you idiot! You think you can take a Protector?"

13:28, Today: Bast rolled 10 using 2d6+1.  Single combat.
Reduced Harm to Bast.
Awe oppo.

Bast dashed forward, grabbing Nat in a headlock. "Can't hit what you can't see" she taunted him. "Now what the hell have you lot been up to? The Mother has shown me some things that I didn't like."

OOC-You're still a way aways from eachother. There are currently three children. The girl that dived down on Rage,Nat,who is a boy and is attacking Bast in the room that is to small for Rage to get into and the girl who is standing at the mouth of that tunnel. I read it as Rage still in the larger room grappling with girl who ambushed him while Bast fights Nat and the tunnel girl stares.

Nat falters slightly and another pile of junk flies wide as he snaps off a rushed throw. Bast dodges the majority,moving around the projectiles like water before plowing into Nat. A flicker of metal appears in his hand and he flails slightly with it,taking a chunk of Bast's thumb off.

<Orange>"Get off Bast you HRK!"
he yells as Bast cinches the headlock tighter.
He flais the blade ineffectually in your direction,unable to get a good angle.

Ooc-got it. Just making sure I am not going after an innocent kid.

Rage makes sure to use the hold until the kid stops struggling. He is careful not to maintain it long enough where it will do any long term damage. Once she passes out he could tie the kid up and go to help Bast soemhow.

Bast locked her elbow and clenched the other fist, rubbing it back and forth on Nat's skull, noogying him firmly. "Talk you!"

"OW OW OW,STOP! When Hey get's here you'll be sorry!,Just like Scab!" His struggles seem to have worn him out and now he's attempting to pry out of Bast's headlock ineffectually while gasping. The girl stares,eyes wide as Bast wrestles with Nat. "UNCLE UNCLE! It was Hey's idea!" Nat bawls out,Snot and Spit leaking down on his face as he tears up.

Rage attempts to squeeze through the gap but can't make it very far. He sees Bast struggling with another child and see's a girl in a tattered a and burnt dress,stare onward with fear in her eyes,her eyes lock onto yours and Rage smells the familiar and unmistakable smell of burning. Probably from the smoldering pile of wood that Nat had used to attack Bast.

Rage notices,stenciled on the side of the smashed crate "Property of Ragtown:Parts for Spring"

Zek was shocked to see the parts he needed just sitting there. He almost went to look at them...but Bast came first. "Bast! Are you ok!?" He yelled, withdrawing from the tight squeeze after realizing he was just too big. It sure sounded like she had the situation well in hand.

He proceeded to bind up the girl he had choked out, feeling a twinge of guilt about it. She was a child...and very dangerous and strong child, but still. "Bast, we need to get out of here!" He calls back. Once Bast gives him the all clear, he will grab the box of parts and drape the KO'd girl over it. Then he will try to drag both out of the tunnels.

"What was Hey's idea?" Bast demanded.

"Hang on a minute will you" she said to Rage. "I want to know what is going on here."

Rage, the only way you are getting out of here is via Portal. The physical exits are just too small.

"He said no one would notice! We need the stuff more than the bigguns anyway!" He writhes again, tiny arcs of lightning travel up Bast's arm as she noogies Nat again.

The pounding of tiny feet sound behind Rage,coming from the tunnel he just came from.

Rage turns, preparing to go for weapons-but he really did not want to shoot a child. Even one that tried to kill him just moments ago.
