The quincy led her impromptu companion to the mouth of the cave she had spotted with haste. Flying veritably on the wings of her hirenkyaku, she fired several more missiles into the beasts that came close or impeded their path. Already, she could feel the strain of their prolonged battle beginning to set in, and her hand had started to ache as a result of drawing so much reishi so rapidly.
At the mouth of the cave, they paused briefly to catch their breath and formulate a plan of action. The shinigami, however, seemed more interested in speed than strategy.
"If ve are not careful, ve vill be oferrun from zee back." Sylvia warned, and her golden eyes brimmed with energy as her himmelsblick searched the cave system quickly. It was small, and freshly dug out from the earth. This was planned, she thought. "Nein hexblozions, und be careful of zee cave falling in."
On another pathway of reishi, she glided further into the cave at speed, but only so far as to disappear into the darkness and out of sight of those peering in from outside. "Vu go kill it! I'll handle zee others." As though to further reinforce her plan to the other woman, an arrow shot past Yoriko and into the head of a hollow that had come charging at them both. More would come, and with the natural bottleneck of the cave, Sylvia was sure she could handle them all.
Deep within the cool darkness, however, something stirred. It could feel that its lair had been disturbed, and its mouth watered at the taste of a meal in the air. It opened its jaw, and a great, howling roar echoed off the soft walls of the cave.
