Scylla peeked back at the apparition, it seemed the crossbow bolts had gone straight through him. As if he was some sort of ghost, his laugh sent shivers down her spine, and made her take a step back. “Uh.. h-he’s not d-dead.” She stuttered her statement, before Dahak’s shade began to speak. A bit shocked, but quickly determined this was some kind of projection.
Upon the necromancers explanation of various details when referring to Kalina, Scylla looked on with a blank expression as she scratched her head, her bubblegum mind trying to make sense of everything that Dahak spoke, “Family reunion? What does he mean by that Chand-“ Her eyes widening with surprise all of a sudden, “..wait! you’re a vampire!?” She had already suspected it, definitely a giveaway when she didn’t want any cake. Like. Who doesn’t love cake?
Then the shade moved in between her and Kalina which made the witch jump back, resisting to shake out of fear in her shoes. “Eek! T-too close, sir! Much, much too close!” Trying to bring up a lecturing finger to the necromancers face but obviously afraid. What really creeped her out however was his attempt to flirt, mixing her intimidated expression with red from embarrassment. Covering her face, “I.. that’s.. uhm..” before she could continue to flail however, the witch felt the vampires cold hand pull her back in, yelping at the sudden tug, her feet following behind her frantically.
Scylla looked at Kalina with wonder when she revealed aggression towards the shade for coming onto her. Not really having much time to think about it, she turned look at her, and nodded as Dahak continued to speak. “Okay..” suddenly covering her mouth with a giggle, “..Dahak, Hey! Not another word out of you! How about instead of laughing at us you help us out? How do we find the other witch with the tome you mentioned earlier huh?” Her confidence returning. Besides his flirtation this Dahak seemed fairly harmless. At least for now.
Just as she had started making her way forward, looking to explore their surroundings, Dahak brought the slithering abomination to their attention. What little sense of safety she was starting to feel vanished once again. This time turning as pale just as her vampire partner when the horrible sounds emitted from behind them. “Uhh.. Chandra? I think my tummy literally just said, ‘food’.” She said as the disgusting slithering got closer and emitted yet another grumbling roar. She quickly snapped out of it however, when Kalina made her distaste known by firing a few bolts at the creature.
For an instant she went through her mind figuring out what kind of spell to follow up with, quickly turning to look at Dahak, "Did you say an 'everlasting source of magic?!" but before the intrigue could set in she suddenly had a change of heart, and wasn’t about to attempt to deal with that thing after all. It was simply much too creepy for her. “WAAAHH!! I CANT!!” Grabbing hold of Kalina’s arm she pulled her away, snapping her fingers frantically, emitting sparks for a few moments until the way was lit before them through the fiery ember in her palm. “No way! No way! Nope! We’re not fighting that thing! Renee!! Renee!! Can you hear me?!?!” She called out to her teacher within the echoing caverns.
