Israk picks up the glassy shard carefully and places it in a pouch. He then stood and turned back to the group.

"Move quickly," he said more firmly than before. "We have to keep moving, I sense something has been disturbed...."

The Umbra guard would make sure some of the shards go home with them to Atrum, they were told to make sure all information about this cave and any magic within was brought back to atrum. Nicta nodded "I agree, lets move" They followed their comrades as they walked through the twisting winding caverns.

The caverns were silent and devoid of movement, aside from cracks in the stones dripping clear spring water from some underground stream and the gentle crunch of rocks and dirt under the feet of those who were traversing the tunnels. In the darkness, something rippled in the air - in the very energy of the cavern's atmosphere. It was faint and brief...just as if a small, chilling wave of wind crossed through the tunnel and then disappeared. It was then completely gone, without a trace. Perhaps it was just an anomaly...maybe even the result of the travelers' imaginations. It was impossible to tell. Most of them probably wouldn't even notice, and the ones that did might only detect a faint vibration. After a few moments of continuing down the rocky corridor, the little ripple around them had completely vanished. Everything was wickedly calm, quiet, and monotonously similar to the path they had already taken.

Except...they came to another waterfall at the end of the tunnel. It was the only way down. It was distinctly like the other that they had just crossed...shockingly similar, actually. Identical.

The umbra guard all stopped and looked around confused "Wait...did we go up at all? I didn't think we did...and we didn't turn all the way around. We couldn't have possibly gone in a circle." Nicta said, trying to explain what was happening. Aleax shook his head "We didn't....this just looks exactly the same as the last one." He walked to the ledge to look down and see if the bottom was identical too.

Israk's expression seemed uneasy by the familiar surroundings. As he approached the cliff he felt an increasing energy, one he knew far to well to be comfortable. He peered down for a moment then back to the way they came, he continued scanning the area as if he were being watched. The other blood guard had the same air about the the waterfall.

"Another waterfall?" Shanoa asked as she flickered a couple small blood spelled.

Everything was utterly identical, as if they had walked right around in a circle. Again, the only way was down. Perhaps there would be more clues down on the ledge below, which was hardly visible because of the water cascading down.

Aleax sighed and used his fire spells to send down small torch like tongues of flame "I want to see if there is anything new down there...i dont like this very much"

The flames hissed as they made contact with the water and scorched against the dirt in the crevice, but otherwise, nothing made any sound or movement. Everything seemed perfectly normal...at least, as normal as it could be. They would have to descend again, just as they had done before.

Aleax sighed and blinked down link last time along with the rest of the umbra guard, in the same battle ready formation, making sure no one was waiting for them down there.

Israk jumped down the waterfall as before and caught himself by the blade of his sword. Engraved in this sword was a blood red dragon, his armor resembled scales, and his cloak like laid back wings. The others went around the rock formations again as the Anima ran up to Aleax.

"Its the same," Israk said, still watching the surroundings nervously.

The same gems tumbled down from the rock wall, just like before. Deja vu. The tunnel leading down from the ledge was exactly identical to the other.

Aleax looked around "Something is very wrong here" Nicta nodded and said "These caverns aren't natural something made them...that is the only way to have two identical caverns like this." Another umbra guard looked at them and suggested "Maybe whatever we are trying to discover?" Nicta nodded, thinking whatever they were here to find was alive...was not a very comforting thought. "What would dwell in such a place..."

Israk stopped dead and looked back they way they came as a look of pure dread came over him. As he did, a roaring growl came from the distance, the deafening sound would cause even the most seasoned of warriors to tremble with fear. As they stood on the ledge a burning blaze of light grew large above them, and the roars continued. They would hear stones crashing, tunnels caving, and the thrashing of a enormous creature.

"run...you fools" Israk said calmly at first. "Move now! Down the tunnel, go!"

The Umbra guard looked at him and began to move just as the rest of them did Nicta looked at Israk and yelled "What in the 15 is that!!?"

The tunnel twisted down, just as it did before. Exactly as it did before. As they ran, the scenery would be identical, as if something had sculpted it exactly from the stone. As they ran, they would hear the gurgling of another waterfall in the distance.

The fiery inferno boomed as if hit the ledge below, smashing the upper ledge with its tail. It turned for the tunnel and smashed into it, It was huge, large than the tunnel itself. It continued whipping its tail and thrashing the opening until its shoulders fit underneath the roof then it surged forward, as the hooked horns of its back and shoulders carved the tunnel open.

Israk followed behind them, looking back to to keep an idea of where the beast was.

"An Aesua beast, and from the sound of it, an elder. Its hell fighting an infant beast, right now, our best defense are these small tunnels."

As they ran one of the umbra guards could be heard yelling one of the spells of binding "Even if it doesnt trap it, it should slow it down!" They continued to run as they followed the tunnel, hearing the other waterfall aleax sighed "What in the name of night is with this cave!?"

The beast thrashed its curved horns into the wall and pushed through the small tunnel. As it continued its speed increased and the roof of the tunnel caved behind it. It slowed when the spell was cast but it would not hold it back. They would have to move quickly to the next waterfall and down before the beast broke through the small tunnel.

Israk turned and saw the beast charging his men and reacted quickly. He cut his hand and ran in across the wall as he ran. When the beast reached the point where the blood was he ran his hand over his blade, his voice echoed in a language few would understand.

"Sos nornah rechan zahkrii kotin hokoron!" (Rough Translation: Blood may cast blades into our enemy) The blood pierced out into spires, swords that resembled his own only larger. The beast struggled to move forward and the first blades began to crack. They would not have long before it was free again.

As the beast was slowed by the blades each umbra guard shouted "Black dogs of hell, look upon yourselves with horror, and drown in your own blood!" The chant to the spell of binding they used earlier, this would make it stronger as well as the fact that all of them used it with the chant.

Aleax looked toward the next waterfall "Not enough time to check if this one is safe, everyone prepare for the worst!"

The fleeing travelers were greeted again by the same ominous waterfall, streaming down apathetically just a few meters away.

Deep below, the commotion stirred something ancient...something slumbering...something watching...there was another ripple, more noticeable this time.

The umbra guard skid to a halt right before the ledge of the waterfall and looked back then down then back again "Which threat do we want to deal with, the thing down there we cant see and have no idea about, or the thing that we have an idea about."

Israk stopped at the edge of the cliff and turned to watch the beast. It thrashed about in the tunnel, although it was too small to move about. The blades cracked and shattered as it pushed forward through the wounds and magik.

"We don't know if there is anything down there and if we fight here we won't have the room to maneuver." Israk said as he carved a small crevice into the edge of the tunnel's opening. He bled his hand into the crevice until the thin stream of blood trickled down the length of the opening. He rose and marked the top of the opening with a rune of his blood.

"I can hold it back with this long enough to get down..."

Aleax looked at him, rasing an eyebrow as Nicta said "You would die fighting that thing alone, it would just come after us again after it killed you. It would be a waste of time and your life."

Israk paused for a moment in utter shock.

"This sigil will activate on its own, it is not necessary for me to remain behind."

Nicta nodded "Oh, well then, lets move." Having completely moved past that awkward situation, Nicta and the rest of the umbra guard, quickly began blinking to the bottom of the water fall. Just as before, lighting it quickly.
