She sighed unsure if she could trust his answer, but simply nodded

He bowed in thanks before continuing. The temple's ground floor was a tangled mess of corridors and chambers. Frescoes lined the walls depicting scenes from ancient texts such as the saint's communion with the god of death and the sacking of Mahara. Clutching hands and skeletal figures were elevated from the images and throughout the temple maintained a low level of light.

She sighed as she slowly followed him looking around. A strange feeling atarted to fulfill her, it was one she could not explain, but it slowed her down

After some time Shinya stopped. They seemed to have covered the entirety of the ground floor save the main hall where access was restricted.

"If we are to continue further a plan is in order."

Shinya considered his next move.

"I don't think we can do much here for the moment in any case." He sighed relucantly, making his way back outside the temple.

She sighed as she nodded her head slightly "yes sir" she said softly as she followed closely behind, unsure of what was going on

One of the bronze masked priests, presumably the same one to whom they had spoken earlier, nodded in recognition as they left, to which Shinya bowed slightly and made his way out onto the streets again.

"I imagine you all must be hungry." Shinya remarked with a smile. "There must be an inn or restaurant around here somewhere."

"Shall we adjourn for the moment to refresh ourselves?" Shinya said.

"I thought you'd never ask." Reejo replied, holding his stomach which rumbled angrily. He held a slightly pained expression which deteriorated into one of pitiable despair.

After a short while the group came to a large bar where even at this early hour many people were drinking merrily.

"It's only just gone midday." Shinya remarked as he noted the patrons mugs of ale. He moved through the crowded room and up onto the balcony that overlooked the lower floor before seating himself at a table.

A waiter arrived at the table shortly after the group had seated themeslves. He carried a frought expression and seemed rather stressed, constantly looking over his shoulder as howls and jeers came from a group of men at a table in the corner behind Shinya.

"What can I get you?" The man asked, wiping sweat from his brow with a handkercheif.

"Just some soup and a glass of water for me." Shinya smiled and the man scribbled down the order on a small tablet.

"And the rest of you?"

She slowly sat down and looked at the waiter shaking her head as if she did not want anything. She remained silent as she looked around
