Chapter 15 – Shortcut or no Shortcut?

 

The group then stops for a second after learning of a possible shortcut through the dungeon and then determines what they want to do with this shortcut, “Hmm, do we wish to take this shortcut as we do currently have the golden key for it?” Asked Rheill.
“I would say no, but let’s open it anyway to be merely safe in case we have to quickly backtrack to the water source on level two of this dungeon. Also, If we skip stuff, we may probably miss several armour upgrades like Weapons and food that we will eventually need!” Replied Karna.
“Good Idea, Karna!” Replied Isai.
“Okay Karna, place the gold key in the lock to see what type of short-cut it is!” Suggested Sana.
“Well, let’s get our weapons out ready first before I place this key inside of the golden lock,” declared Karna.
Next, Karna takes out the last and final remaining golden key that they currently possessed. She deliberately puts it inside of the lock it clicks and turns and is locked in place; suddenly, a swirling blue-hazed Vortex appeared much like the dungeon puzzles they had solved earlier.
“Ah, it is a teleportation Vortex!” Explained Sana.
“I will go quickly through and come right back!” Said Rheill.
“No, you will not go alone… I have said it too many times already. We should never split up unless there is no other choice. I hope you are hearing me nice and clear, Rheill!” Demanded Karna to Rheill in a forceful tone.
“Karna, let’s all go together to check what is on the other side then. We have activated a vortex. We could get back-stabbed or even ambushed by stuff?” Replied Rheill back at Karna.
“Yes, you are right, Rheill!” Replied Karna.

After their little discussion, they decided to all go together; suddenly, they vanish into thin air and then appear at an exclusively different location. What powerful magic this dungeon possesses. The party now stands within a new corridor, which they face a wooden door with a semi-circular window on carved flawlessly again into it; it is much like all of the gateways the champions had encountered on the current level. The pathway also leads off to their right, and there is some writing carved cleanly into the grey-coloured dungeon wall that is situated directly to the right of the blue-hazed vortex.
Sana reads it out loudly, “Shortcut back!”
“Can we please go and check the remaining area that leads off towards the right just past the encrypted text, which Sana read to us!” Suggested Isai.
“Agreed, Isai!” Replied Karna.
Karna then takes the point and leads the group onwards. The champions follow the passage that it takes a ninety-degree turn to the left and again to the right; the dungeon then continued into an extensive tunnel towards the north. Slightly further up this underground-corridor, which extended out to the right causing the passageway to form into a broader path for the adventurers to traverse but alas there was nothing there. However, further, there is another rectangular-shaped empty alcove on the right before it came to another wooden door. All of them headed towards the door and visualised it was of the same design again and was operated by a button, “Okay we know we are safe and as discussed we do not want to miss out on possible armour and weapon upgrades. We should ignore using this shortcut then,” declared Rheill.
“Yes, honeybuns, you are one hundred per cent right on this!” Replied Karna.
The adventurers decided to head back through the vortex, “We are back where we started now before taking the shortcut. So let’s press on!” Stated Isai using his memory to know his surroundings for the rest of the party.

The group leisurely pushes onwards as they head in a northerly direction; this was shown by the compass, which is possessed by Karna on her shield arm that is still wrapped around it tightly. The passageway appears more spacious than usual; Additionally, the corridor suddenly develops into a narrower pathway, which went on for several paces forwards. It then extends into a cramped oblong-shaped room that turns to the left. The champions tread cautiously as they now know what they have seen so far on this level; they have encountered three unknown creatures, the Magenta Worms, being the most deadly so far due to their extremely toxic venom. The party follows the passage out of the rectangular-shaped room, which leads into another vaster chamber. The area looks to branch off towards the left again. The room gets grander in certain places, especially near the southern side; suddenly, they see two more gigantic Magenta Worms.
“Worms get ready, be ready to drink the anti-venom potions if you get hit immediately!” Stressed Isai as he handed two flasks to both Rheill and Karna.
They both grab the anti-venom flasks quickly.
“We will place them far away from the battle, I think you know why, Isai,” said Karna as she prepares herself for combat after placing the serum far behind, where they planned on fighting the evil Megenta Worms.
Rheill joins her as well armed with his two-handed axe; Karna closes in first to capture their attention as one of the Magenta Worms strikes almost Immediately as she moved in. Karna was ready for it and quickly blocks it with her shield knowing these are quicker than they look; the force knocks her backwards, but her balance is unmatched by anyone in the, whole land of Crom.
“Phew, that was too close again. Be careful, Rheill! I will try to turn them, so they face me, and then you can flank them!” Stressed Karna.
Karna strikes at one of the worms knowing she probably will not strike it. Shockingly Karna is surprised as she strikes a glancing blow on the head of one of the magenta poisonous worms. The worm that was hit by Karna’s sword then turns quicker than the speed of light as it enrages and attempts to strike at Karna. She hastily sidesteps to the left, and it misses her; Rheill then chops off its head with his two-handed axe with one swift strike. Suddenly, the other Magenta Worm tries to bite Rheill, but not this time as Karna jumps in the way of its attack. She was swifter than a cat and blocks it with her shield. Karna’s new protective-guard appeared sturdier. Even though it was not a full bulwark, it is not in any danger of shattering. The material that constructed the shield was metal rather than wood. Suddenly, she counterattacks with a quick thrust which landed in its mouth, the worm shrieks out loudly; without hesitation, both Sana and Isai throw their projectile weapons in the form of their daggers and shurikens, which both land in the head of the worm and it then dies instantly.
Isai quickly picks up the Anti-venom, glassed-flasks and puts them back inside of his backpacks for future usage.
“Rheill and Karna, please cut the worms up as we need more food to eat… The screamer-slices are running out and will only last a few more days. Luckily though we do have some more drumsticks, and some cheese and apples to eat. Although we need all the provisions, we can feast our eyes on!” Explained Sana.
Both Rheill and Karna chop up the worms creating some more worm rounds, they both then pass them to Sana to store inside of her backpack. The remaining screamer slices did not take up much room, and the worm rounds took up the remaining space.

After they had packed all of the food away; they then notice a steel portcullis on the northern side of the chamber, “Look, there is a door here!” Said Rheill.
“It is button operated like the rest, shall we take a peek inside?” Replied Isai.
Yes, and we need somewhere else to rest as well. We do not know what lurks ahead beyond this chamber. We should be ready for anything inside this area beyond the locked door!” Explained Sana.
Karna uncovers her sword from her sheath and raises her shield as Rheill pushes the button on the metal-portcullis, which forces it to open automatically. Karna moves in first to scout the area for signs of life and hostiles; however, she finds that is just a vacant room. There are no objects on the floor or any creatures or monsters. Although, in a small corridor that leads to a dead-end to the far left of the room had a small-brown grating much like what they had seen before. Inside of a narrow niche directly to the left, which was off of a ninety-degree left was another one of those scary looking faces on the wall. It suddenly startles Karna, but she shakes it off and realises it’s just a face on the wall, “Anything Wrong, Karna?” asked Rheill as he noticed Karna was shaken up by something.
“Nothing, just another stupid face on the wall… that is all!” Answered Karna.
“Shall we rest here?” queried Sana.
“Yes, this sounds a good spot, Sana!” Replied Isai.
“I agree too… I am getting a little bit tired myself, but would like to eat first before we go to sleep!” Said, Karna.
“Good Idea, Karna,” responded Rheill.
“I will prepare us, the last of my Screamer slices, Isai, has more in his backpack, but we need to use these up first!” Explained Sana.
Sana finishes preparing the Screamer slices and hands them out to everyone. They also take a few sips from their water-bottles before they get ready for sleep.
“Still no water either, our bottles are running out. We can probably only go on for a few more days before we are completely out of our water to drink!” Stressed Karna worryingly.
“Do not worry everything will be fine… the water I am not too worried about as we can always head all the way back. Nonetheless, the food must get replaced by finding new creatures to feast on!” Stated Sana.
“Let’s not lose hope and sleep over worrying about such things, until we truly get to that stage!” Replied Isai.
“Agreed!” said all of them as the couple of Karna and Rheill sleep together as Karna lays her head down on Rheill’s chest. He strokes her silky-long black hair until she drifted off into her deep haze.
“Isai could you do what Rheill is doing to Karna’s hair. I know we are not officially together yet, but I love it as much as Karna does?” Asked Sana as she thinks to herself again, ‘I honestly like Isai a lot, maybe I should tell him soon. I would like to date him after the quest. I want to see how he treats me throughout our journey!’
Isai then starts to play with Sana’s long radiating and shiny golden-coloured locks. He twirls her hair around his fingers and then fumbles with her scalp as both of them then fall into a light-slumber together.
Suddenly, Karna quickly gets up, “Karna what is wrong?” Asked Rheill.
“Nothing, the door is wide open, just going to close it, sorry if I wake you Sana and Isai!” Replied Karna.
The door slams shut and awakens, Isai and Sana, which startled both of them, “Sorry you two, the door still open. Please go back to sleep!” Said Karna gently.
Karna then goes back to lie on top of Rheill’s chest as the entourage then sleeps for about eight more hours before they finally awaken again.

Sana lights up the area again once she is fully awake and all of them stretch their bodies out, which are getting worn out from sleeping on the floor all the time, but they do not have much choice in the matter.
“Let’s continue exploring now we are awake after we grab our equipment!” mentioned Karna as she grabs her round-metal shield and her sword. Rheill collects his axe, and both Sana and Isai grab their stuff; Karna then opens the door using the button and the door automatically re-opened. The adventurers were then able to leave the small room where they had just rested.
“Close the door please, Rheill!” Asked Karna nicely.
“Sure, sweetie!” Answered Rheill as he presses the button again and the door closes shut tightly once again.
Karna moves to the front line again and keeps her sword out of her sheath, so she is armed for combat, “Rheill, please watch the rear as we did not explore here yet. Foul creatures could have wandered to the places where we have already been while we slept inside of that small room!” Suggested Karna.
“Good idea!” Replied Rheill.
Rheill moved towards the rear-guard of the party. He then watches closely behind the group as Karna lead the group onwards; they then come to a corner that turned left and lead into a small rectangular room and then heads forwards on the outside. The party follows the corridor to the right, which leads to another long-shaped room and at the end is a closed wooden door with no means of opening it.
“Rheill, use your, Axe!” Suggested Sana.
Rheill takes Sana’s advice, and he swings at the door several times until he cuts through it with his axe. Finally, he chops a massive hole through both sides of the wooden door so they can slip through it.
The Champions then step through the door and notice that the passageway winds around two more right turns; which they tread lightly, being careful not to make noise as they have yet to encounter anything for a while. There are a few hooks on the dungeon wall; Rheill hastily touches one of them as he loves to see what things do, “Rheill do not just touch things, how many times do I have to tell you!” said Karna raising her voice with anger written all over her face.
“Gosh, I never have seen you this mad before, Karna!” He shudders after feeling Karna’s wrath for the first time.
Sana and Isai look at each other in shock as they witness Karna’s short outburst, “Remember not to make Karna mad!” Whispered Sana into Isai’s ear.
The party continues after Rheill had learned his lesson about touching stuff and hopefully this time he will learn to listen to Karna; they then come to an intersection to their left and semi-circular wooden door bars their way ahead. However, there is a button on the right side of the door, but they first decide to check the intersection to their left; Alas, it leads only to a dead end after traversing around a left turn. There is a horrible face again on the right wall of the turning, which looked the same as the ones that frightened Sana and Karna previously.
“Another face!” Said Rheill.
“Why is your face on this wall!” Said Karna jokingly, which made everyone laugh.
“You are mean, Karna, I will get you!” He said and then laughs at Karna evilly.
‘Hmm, I wonder how he will get me!’ thought Karna to herself.
Inside the dead end, there is another empty alcove carved into one of the right walls; nothing was concealed inside of the niche though.
“Looks like we have to go through the door, keep your weapons out!” Said Isai.
“Good Idea, Isai!” Replied Karna.
The entourage moves out of the dead-end and towards the semi-circular, wooden door ready to open it up.
“Ready?” Said Rheill.
“Yes!” Answered, Sana, Isai and Karna.

Rheill pushes the button, and the door opens, “Charge into the room as there is a narrow part here,” declared Karna.
The other three heed her advice and rush into the chamber around the small turning. Additionally, Sana casts her (ZO) Rune to close the door from a distance.
“Oh wow, the (ZO) Rune closes and opens doors too. That is good to know!” Said Sana as she did not expect it to close it, as the scroll only explained that the spell would open specific doors.
“Look out!” shouted Rheill as he sees two Magenta Worms approaching them.
“Now we must fight and use what we have learned from our previous battles with these creatures, and we will be fine. I still have two anti-venom potions as both Karna and Rheill didn’t get bitten in the last battle. It is to be safe, in case either of you gets caught this time or even Sana and I get attacked from the flank!” Explained Isai.
The pretty large room has several columns of walls in the middle; Both Rheill and Karna lunge towards the incoming Magenta Worms that are near one of the columns of a wall. The narrow dimension to the south that separated part of the chamber in two. Karna lunges her sword at the worm to capture its attention; she fumbles it, though. The leech roars at her, but Karna shows no fear.
Karna then evades and blocks the attempted bite and manages to separate evil-worms from each other.
Rheill decides to take the other on its own, “Assist Rheill please! I can take care of myself, no way this is going to land a hit on me while I fight defensively!” shouted Karna in the heat of battle.
“Sure Karna, we know how good you are! I will use ranged weapons as my poison clouds will probably be ineffective against these, they are poisonous after all!” said Sana.
“Sure, Karna, we know how good you are, I will use ranged weapons as poison clouds will be ineffective against these, they are poisonous after all,” said Sana.
Rheill evades the attacks by jumping from side to side and slashes at the purple-leeches but is unable to get any hits on it; however, Sana and Isai aid him by throwing their throwing stars and daggers at the worm, which pierce its body and draw blood; this slows down one of Magenta Worms. Rheill sees the opening and then dissect it in half with his two-handed axe, and the worm dies instantly. Simultaneously, Karna was keeping the other Magenta Worm at bay. Rheill moves in behind the second worm and slices it in half again with his axe; he is so dominant when armed with a two-handed weapon as he is proficient in the art.
“Great work you three!” praised Karna.
“You did wonderful too Karna, keeping that worm at bay for so long!” replied Rheill, stating how good of a defensive fighter Karna naturally is.
Theill then says, “Let’s check this room in case there are more of the worms here and if any objects are here waiting for us!”
They all look around the room and find in a dead end in the north-eastern section of the room a basinet helmet. The head-piece offered even more protection than the full helmet that Karna is currently wearing; the holes are smaller around the eyes and nose. It is a light coloured grey as well as the other helmets they found in upper levels of the dungeon.
“Rheill, take my old Helmet,” as she removes it and her long and black hair drifts down her back, as she hands it to Rheill.
“Yes a good idea, Karna! You should use this helmet, even though it is almost the same. It appears a bit sturdier!” Explained Rheill.
Rheill then removes his old protective head-piece and places it on the ground as it is too heavy for Isai and Sana to wear. His brown hair is now visible for a short moment before wearing Karna’s old full-plated helmet over his head and eyes. Now Rheill’s whole face is now covered minus the eyes and nose. Rheill then breathes in Karan’s lovely scent as it was still present inside of helm, where she wore it previously, ‘mmm, she always smells so divine!’ he thought to himself.
They explore more to the central area, just west of where they found the helmet and see another pair of leather armour; it is the top and pants; it looked identical to one Rheill and Isai is currently wearing, but it is too heavy for Sana.
“I will take the leather chest-piece, and replace my old leather armour as it got burnt!”
Karna removes her basinet helmet so that she can take off her brown leather jerkin. The top had parts of it burned by the rock-pile on the floor above on her whole right arm offering little to any protection at all. Karna is now only wearing her corset top. Karna shows off her beautiful upper body with her curves and assets hidden under her bra. Rheill examines her body more firmly as she smiles at Rheill and she softly says, “If I find plate armour that is more suitable for myself… my figure will remain hidden from you until after our quest. However, here is a treat for you!”
She then decides to remove her leather bottoms to the shock of the others, but most importantly Rheill.
‘Oh my god, Kana is a Goddess, but why the hell is she stripping. Even though that was a damn nice treat, I wish she did it in private though, don’t want Isai Looking at my Lady!” were the thoughts Rheill was thinking at the time. She then answers Rheill’s thoughts in his mind, “Could all of you leave the room for a second I want to remove this underwear as its very dirty now and it’s making me feel uncomfortable. You can stand there in the corridor we enter the chamber in as it is quite safe now!”
“Karna, sure I respect your privacy, and you will show me when you are ready to show me that body of yours!” Explained Rheill.
‘Aww, he is truly the best, and Isai better not try and peek on me, I know what he did to Sana. It still eats me alive every day that I cannot say anything about it to the others, especially poor, Sana!’
“Sana you can stay if you like!” Said Karna, teasing Rheill.
“No Karna, that is just mean to the guys, ha, ha!” She laughed knowing what Karna was exactly going to do to Isai and Rheill by making them both jealous, being another lady.
‘Damn I love Karna so much… she is so funny, witty and powerful too,’ thought Rheill to himself silently.
‘What is wrong with Karna? She is such a tease for a lady. I bet she is a right dirty slut in bed!” Thought Isai to himself shocked at how flirty and open Karna seemed to be.
All three of them then leave the room and allow Karna to remove her skimpy clothes alone. Karna then leaves the corset and warrior-hide on the stony-floor; she then dresses in the new leather armour with no underwear on, “You can come back in now!”
Karna’s astonishing curves became concealed inside of the leather armoured suit, and they fitted flawlessly; she then places her Basinet helmet back over her head hiding her beautiful face and long obsidian-coloured hair.
“Karna, I can imagine your beautiful curves under the armour design and what lies underneath it!” Replied Rheill quietly, but Sana heard him.
“Stop being a pervert, Rheill!” Said Sana, mockingly.
“Can you both stop wasting more time, already! Our food is limited, and we have not found much other than these horrid Magenta Worm, Slices!” Shouted Isai going back into serious mode, most likely disappointed not getting to look at Karna’s fully exposed body.
Karna merely ignored Isai’s too-serious attitude as the party continued to walk left and came to another door with a semi-circular window. Additionally, to the left of the exit on the ground rested another empty flask made out of glass.
Isai decides to take the empty flask, so he now has four liquid-containers. Two of the bottles now contained the anti-venom liquid while the other two bottles are empty.
“Wait before we leave, we should cut up those two worms. Like we did before for extra food. Also, you left your throwing weapons inside one of them as I do not remember picking them up, we should do this straight away before trying to get any forms of treasure/items, and this was Rheill’s fault, as He suggested we search the room!” Explained Karna.
“Yes Karna, we forgot to do that earlier, and it’s not Rheill fault we should have all remembered!” Answered Sana.
Rheill Smiles at Sana defending him. They then pack the Worm rounds, Karna takes them as they are light and she had loads of room in her backpack; also, Isai and Sana take their projectile weapons that are now laying on the floor.
“Let’s open this door and move forwards!” Said Rheill.
Karna draws her sword out as she opens the door using the button on the right of the door. The party then enters through the archway, and they then close the door from the other side. They follow the passage past an empty alcove to the right just next to the door. The passage winds around two left turns and then they notice they are in the same corridor as where the shortcut took them to as they could see the blue-haze vortex in the distance.
“We are back at the short-cut, and we were right to explore as we found another flask and a better helmet. Both you and Rheill now have better head protection, which is most critical to our success,” explained Isai to Karna.
“Don’t forget I got a new chest piece as well!” Replied Karna.
They move towards the other door, which seems to be a constant theme on this floor with semi-circular window on the doors.
“Get ready all. Anything could lie ahead!” Said Sana as they prepare to open the door.
