Rakshasa Of Wrath
The Rakshasa of Slaughter
Not even Ikari could have exactly expected what happened next. Sure, she had a bad feeling; but it was just that, a bad feeling. She had no indication of what would happen, just that her senses were giving her a big "GTFO" warning; and she wasn't going to question it. Not even the words "waht the hell" would bother her, not that they did anyways; they may be demons of hell, but it was still a very useful curse word. However, it appeared that Ikari, in her haste, had not noticed the ground they walked upon was just as odd as the way she felt about the area. By the time Ikari even took notice, could say something, or even drag her compatriots out of the way. Frankly speaking, it was Ikari who was dragged.
As Hana fell straight down, pulling on Ikari some, the demon had accidentally let go of her hand due to the sudden shock of the fall; but the damage had already been done. She was off her balance, and even Yuukinan seemed to be struggling with the ground below them. Soon, however, Ikari fell backwards and clung to Yuukinan's hand out of sheer fright; and then they fell. They plummeted through the darkness, with Ikari squeaking in complete terror. However, Yuukinan grabbed onto Ikari, turned around, and covered Ikari with her coat. No matter how much Ikari protested, Yuukinan soon fell to the ground with a dull thud that echoed across the cave; landing surprisingly close to Hana.
Yuukinan sighed softly in the aftermath of their landing. She wasn't the most durable being, and she could easily regenerate bruises, but even Yuukinan wasn't terribly hurt by the fall; Ikari, meanwhile, remained completely unharmed. She was flustered, her few tails were far more poofed up than normal, and her ears were folded down on her head. She wasn't scared of the dark, or of the weird cave they were in; she was more afraid if Yuukinan was injured. So, in a spur of movement, she shoved Yuukinan up to a sitting position and did a quick check to make sure she wasn't hurt; bruised, but fine. The fox sniffled into the back of Yuukinan's shoulder before her ears perked up at Hana's voice.
"We-We're here! Yuukinan broke my fall... not her own some. But, we're fine!"
She flinched at the sound, because it was a little loud thanks to the stone around them; but it was clearly Hana. And, if Ikari's ears didn't fool her, they were quite close. She gave the air a solid sniff, and then shook her head some; it all smelled so... ODD. Whatever this place was, it wasn't naturally made; at least not entirely. The ground may have been a trap constructed long ago; but for whom? That was when Ikari and Yuukinan noticed something acutely. They could sense each other, because they were linked so closely, but neither of them could focus on Hana's presence; like it had gone even though it was clear she was nearby. Ikari made the smallest whimper before digging into her pocket and yanking out a phone. Yes, she has a phone. She's a fox with varied interests and has to keep up with the latest trends and her favorite artists! And other things. Maaany other things. However, it was a good light source; had a flash light too.
With her phone out, Ikari turned on the flashlight function and held it up until she found Hanako; pulling Yuukinan over to her. Ikari walked right up to her and, without asking, sniffed and felt her up a bit; but she didn't touch anything she shouldn't. It may be embarrassing, and extremely invasive, but Ikari was in a 'I don't care, I'm checking if you're hurt' mood. Afterwards, ascertaining that Hanako was only a bit worse off than Yuukinan, she gave the girl a big hug.
After withdrawing from that, Ikari flopped into Yuukinan's arms; speaking of whom, Yuukinan wasn't watching Hana and Ikari, she was looking around the room. She was moving her arm and hand some as she held Ikari; as if she was judging something. Eventually, she pulled at her coat, as if to pull it off, and frowned at something. Afterwards, she tried to create a ball of fire in her hand; but got nothing more than a puff of smoke. Clearly, something had been suppressing their powers. Yuukinan could likely use very small things, but, her own abilities were being thwarted just as easily as Hana.
The demon frowned again, rubbing her back; letting out a very small grunt due to the dull pain that arced up her back. It was, indeed, quite annoying. However, nothing she couldn't deal with. Eventually, the demon looked towards Hanako, observing her state of being before finally speaking.
"Unless I'm mistaken... something is suppressing our powers; and likely energy as well. Which is incredibly annoying..."
Ikari sighed again, lighting up more of the area with her phone, leaning her back against Yuukinan as she surveyed the area; unsure of where exactly they were. Underground? Yes. Where or how far? Not even close. Whether they were in a trap or not? The safe answer was to assume it was a trap. Well, whatever it was, Ikari knew she did NOT want to stay here in this dank, dark cave; where she only had what sake was on her! So, she turned towards Yuukinan and Hanako and grinned at them.
"Whatever it is, I wanna leave! Soooo, lez find a way out together~?"
