PostSubject: Grass growing on rocks.   Wed Mar 21, 2018 9:37 pm

How did it come to this? Senah was just wandering near one of the ruins of what was once a wizard tower but apparently its destruction was not thorough enough that when she approached it, 3 golems suddenly circled the ruins and begin to chase after her. Senah's only defense were words and natural herbs towards the 5 senses, none of which is effective against animated beings. She thought that by getting some distance that she would be outside of their designated area. She was mostly right as 2 of them golem stopped and returned but one of them was continuing to pursue her for reasons unknown.

Senah weaves and ducks under various low lying branches and leaping over bushes in sheer panic as the sound of branches cracking and bushes being trampled being her, a metal golem pursing her. While golems are generally not very fast, Senah herself wasn't exactly the fastest runner either and is also slowed down by navigating the native floras in which the golem plows haphazardly through. It was then that the chase through her to arc shaped formation that restricted her mobility except turning back- CRACK! the sound of splintering wood makes that endeavor a bad idea. She was trapped!

Except she found a small opening that she would barely squeeze through and even a sturdy golem would have trouble smashing through it...hopefully. She grits her teeth as the edge of the rocks was scraping scrape her skin from how fast she was forced to squeeze through but she was able to make it through with only a minor wound to show for it. However she continues backwards for a bit in the case the golem does try to break through. It does step towards the opening and stopped. That answered the questions on which is would win a war of attrition.

However, she had a problem, the golem is now blocking the only exit out and the other way to going deeper into whatever this rock formation is. Senah decided that wait out a bit while tending to her wounds. She reaches to her belt into her satchel to pull out her Aloe Vera salve mixed with honey and smear a very light layer over it but not too much to delay the healing, while ignoring the initial cold sting while her eyes remains watchful of the exit...

--2 hours later--

The golem still has not moved and when she made motions of wanting to exit, the golem stirred and grabbed at her, though unsuccessful due to still being too far in the cave. Apparently it would be impossible for her to exit through the opening and the golem can literally wait forever for her. Her only option now is to go deep into the cave into unknown territory. She shudders. While she is very much home to the outdoor nature, caves are another thing altogether. While she is not terribly claustrophobic, she still feels uncomfortable going deeper into the earth. With a heavy sigh, she steels herself and heads inward, leaving the opening and the golem behind.

Her finger reached into her backpack into the smaller opening and take out what appears to be a seed before clasping it with both of her hands. After about 5 minutes of standing still, a small flower seems to be sprouting seemingly to possess a bit of a light of its own in a strange form of bright bio-luminescent light...well bright for bio-luminescent anyways which only grants her about several feet of visual range.

--Unknown amount of time later--

She has no idea how long has she been treading inside here for at least an opening but she was rather disheartened. Her trail of luminescent seeds "bread crumb trails" was running out and though the flow of air does seems to suggest an opening to freedom it actually seems to be tilting downward instead of upwards as she wanted. Well if her trail leads to a false exit or dead end she can always back-track. However, her eyes caught in the sight of light up ahead. An exit?! Actually it seems more orange and brown rather than the blue, yellow, and white that she was expected.

Unfortunate, Senah should have watched where she was stepping towards and not be distracted by the light as her foot rest in air and a sharp inclination downward. With a shriek, her body tilted downward and started tumbled down along the side of a rock formation before finally coming to a harsh stop on a more flatter surface. However, she was heavily battered on the way down and she isn't laying down, still sitting up, but her body was fatigued and numb from the fall. She was fortunate that the formation was a slope and not a straight vertical drop or she wouln't have survived. On the other hand, she wasn't sure the extend of how badly injured she is and if she broke anything. She justs sits there in front of an opening with her eyes closed as she moves each part of her body slowly to try to access her body's state.

Meanwhile, a very happy oni was singing a jaunty tune as she effortlessly navigated the rocky tunnel's treacherous terrain, having done so many times before.

"Saa, hi no sode tamagushi, suzu uchinarashi! Omae ni hare no hi, tada mau taraba!"

A big burlap sack was slung over her shoulder, the handle of her trusty club sticking out the top as it clattered noisily against the various trinkets and baubles she'd accumulated from her adventures on the surface. It was an impressive haul, even if it wasn't her biggest—it seemed there was never a shortage of cool stuff to take from people who happened to want her extremely dead.

"Kagoyama, yasaka ki, no eda nigikake! Yooouuu, yooouuu, hi-bi-ke! Tomo ni asobaseeeee...!"

She continued to sing in her strong voice as she practically skipped through the tunnel, easily jumping down from overhanging stone to land on the path below. She took in another breath and was about to sing the next verse when a shriek pierced her ears.

Toushiko froze on the spot, her mind racing to figure out where it had come from. It didn't sound like it was behind her, so it must've been further down the tunnel system. Her loose run turned into a sprint, her feet pounding into the rock with every step. She had no idea who'd be dumb enough to be this far down the tunnels—this close to the goddamned Underworld—without being strong enough to deal with its hazards, but it didn't matter.

She didn't hear anything else from the mystery voice, which could've been either a good sign, or a very bad one. Either they weren't too seriously hurt, or... Toushiko grimaced. She wasn't here to play hero, but she wasn't just gonna let someone die in here if she could help it.

Eventually, the tunnel opened up into a much wider space, a giant hollowed-out area that served as the convergence point for some of the countless tunnel exits.

And sitting against the rock below one of the tunnel exits was none other than a human girl, cradling one of her arms with the other, her eyes shut in pain.

Toushiko's eyes snapped wide. "Hey! HEY!" She leaped out of the tunnel, and landed hard against the floor of the converging area. Without missing a beat, she ran toward the girl and quickly knelt down next to her. "Y'alright, girl?! C'mon, say something!" Her eyes trailed down the girl's body, noting various cuts and bruises along her skin, some more serious than others. She drew a sharp breath when she saw the girl's leg.

Her foot...was not supposed to bend like that.

"Shit," she hissed. This complicated things; whatever happened, there was no way this girl was getting out of here under her own power. Toushiko looked back up at her. "Can y'hear me? How do you feel?" she asked. Probably better to make sure she's still conscious first, she decided.

After that motion testing and some winces, she determined that she had badly twisted her ankle, perhaps broke it.  Even at the best case scenario, she would not be able to get back up the way she can up the first place.  To further exasperate her problem, she cannot even sprout any herbs here due to being almost all rocks and no soil and can only use whatever she has to fashion a wooden board so not to aggravate it further.  The various wounds on her body was less of an issue and needs to be disinfected when she at least deal with the foot.

A very loud thud  and very fast motion shakes her out of her assessment as she looks up, her eyes widen at the large red woman with horns adorn her head.  She felt a chill at the intimidating figure and instinctively scoots back- and crumples as the sudden movement alone was enough to send a jab of hot pain on her foot and ankle.  It was then that she realize that it was a rather foolish move that only made things worse for her especially now that she can hear the words and that the woman initially mean no harm to her seeing that she is still alive.

She takes a deep breath and tries to still her turbulent emotion of fear and distaught along with the constant pain and numbness that surrounds her, trying to form some semblance of thought to words.  "Ankle is swollen, maybe broken."  She then pointed upward from where she fell from and did a double take.  That is quite a height that would incapacitate most beings tumbling down.  While she felt fortunate she suffered less than she thought, he sheer distance of climbing it would take to get back is beyond her mean even healthy!  It was then that she felt her vision blur.  "What is...What is wro-"  It was then that she collapse from sheer fatigue and pain

Toushiko looked up at the girl's face when she spoke in a halting voice. The oni nodded at her words. "Yeah, I can see that," she muttered. "How'd you get here, anyway?" The girl weakly pointed up, and Toushiko's gaze followed until she saw the tunnel exit the girl likely fell out of. Her eyes widened in surprise. "All the way up there?" She let out a chuckle. "Well, you're hardier than ya look, kid. I'm sure you'll be just..." Her voice trailed off as she looked back at the girl.

She was slumped over.

"Kid? Hey, kid!" Toushiko grabbed the girl's shoulders and shook them around. "C'mon, stay with me!" Her efforts had no effect, though, and she soon relented for fear of causing even more damage to the poor girl. She gave a frustrated sigh, and stood back up as she considered her options.

If she walked away, this girl was dead. No buts about it. Starvation, dehydration, hungry animals, or if she was really unlucky, another demon coming through the tunnels and whisking her away for their own purposes. No, she couldn't just leave her here.

Toushiko looked back up at the tunnel exit above, and cursed under her breath. Getting up there with the girl wouldn't be impossible, but if she made a single misstep and fell, the girl would have a lot more than a broken ankle to worry about. Even then, the journey back up from here was a long one, and would have much more climbing than Toushiko was comfortable with if she had to safely carry an injured girl the whole time.

Toushiko glanced over to the other side of the room, opposite all the various tunnel exits. There was only one path that way, a cavernous passage that extended further down. She knew well where it led: the Underworld itself. With the tunnel exits being a no-go, she was only left with one option: instead of taking the girl up, she would take her down.

Toushiko bit her lip. In theory, it shouldn't be too much of a problem (aside from having to abandon her sack of loot in order to safely carry the girl, which would be painful, but manageable). Her home wasn't too far, and it wasn't like she hadn't carried countless opponents back to her home before anyway. But this was different; the girl wasn't some hardened warrior who'd earned the oni's respect (and insatiable lust) through combat, she was someone who'd probably wandered down this far by sheer dumb luck and almost gotten themselves killed! Was someone like that really ready to face the dangers lurking within the Underworld?

Hmph. With any luck, she won't have to, Toushiko thought. She's got me, after all. With that in mind, she walked back to the unconscious girl and knelt down next to her, eyeing her belongings. She knew she didn't have any medical supplies left in her own pack, but maybe this girl had something with her that could help. Toushiko reached over and opened the girl's backpack, peering inside. Her brow furrowed in confusion when she saw the contents.

...Seeds?

Yep, and lots of them. Toushiko had no idea why the girl had so many (and so many different kinds!) of them filling up her backpack, but she wasn't going to accomplish anything by pondering that question, so she resumed looking through the other compartments. She soon found some basic medical supplies, which were quickly used to somewhat haphazardly bandage up most of the girl's major cuts. She was also lucky enough to find some wood and string within the girl's multitude of belongings, using them as a makeshift ankle brace to try and keep her foot straight as she moved.

Toushiko knew that this was all only a temporary solution (as well as a major breach of privacy, but she had a feeling the girl wasn't going to care). What she needed to do was get her to a healer, and fast. She took the rope from her burlap sack and used it to sling her club behind her back, then turned and gingerly scooped up the unconscious girl in her arms. Making sure to keep her hold on the girl as steady as possible, she started making her way toward the other side of the area, where the wide path slowly dipped down further into the earth.

Toward Toushiko's home...the Underworld.

——

When Senah came to, the first thing that hit her was the heat. Stuffy and uncomfortable, she'd already begun to sweat.

The second, far more intense, was the smell.

The potent scent of alcohol hit her nostrils as soon as she was conscious again, making her wish she wasn't. Instinctively recoiling from the sensation, she winced as a sharp pain emanated from her foot from the movement. Was it still broken? With the pain came her sense of touch, and she realized she was laying in a surprisingly huge bed, with soft sheets below her and a thick blanket draped over her. She looked around her through bleary-eyed vision, and saw countless knickknacks and items she couldn't possibly identify strewn about the room and on the walls before her eyes eventually fell to her backpack, sitting faithfully beside the bed.

Two indistinct female voices drifted into her ears. She didn't recognize them, nor could she make out the words they were speaking—in fact, it sounded like a different language altogether.

What the hell was going on?

Fire...heat...light...lavender, she could not make much of the dream.  It was so blurry and her condition did not help with a coherent thought especially within a dream.  She was one of the better lucid dreamer but not at this state as it was so hot and the smell of alcohol was cau- alcohol?  

The dream ended.  Senah's eyes open.  Wait, where was she and why was it so hot?  It was these these condition that causes her to stiffly sit up from her position, her effect hampered by her being still very sore for some reason.  It was then that she decided look around to see where she was.  

The first thing Senah notices that she had a blanked draped over her that was part of a bed.  A rather big bed actually.  At first she thought that she was in a bed make for two before she realize that the height of the bed is also big as well.  That means whoever was sleeping here had considerable height  It was then that she was able to gather some sense of what happened that occurred...oh right that large red woman; perhaps this bed belong to her.  Senah did make a note of asking what is she as it would be impolite to call her that, even mentally.

The next two things she notice is of two things that, she realized, brought her out of her dream state.  It was quite hot, not hot enough to be harmful but enough that it makes her a rather uncomfortable.  The second is rather distinct, the smell of alcohol and very strongly, it is was if her uncle and his friend decided to go on a celebratory binge.  Her nose wrinkle from the strength of the aroma of the alcohol which was probably enough to lay him out for an hour.

Now that she was able to partly parse her environment, she then tried to recall everything before, albeit in reverse chronological...the big red woman, the fall, the evasive of the indigenous creatures, the trek downward for an exit, the golem she was chased into the cave.  That would explain why she was feeling so sore all over.  She slid the blanket from her body a bit and notices that her foot was swollen from the injury, yet curiously reinforce from aggravating it further by a wooden brace.  It was then that she also realized that her other wounds has been treated, albeit a bit hastily done but Senah can forgive her for doing what was needed for her.

Does that mean that the woman had to use some of Senah's supplies?  Carefully she scooted towards the edge and immediately saw her backpack laid to the side and gave a sigh of relief as her backpack was mostly intact with some minor tears in the woven fabric.  Unwinding the strap, she saw that some of the seeds has been crushed but was not numerically lost that she could generate more, her other supplies was able to withstand the impact much better thanks to being in containers of polymer rubber of a sort that her mother made.

It was near the edge of he bed that she clearly was able to make out two voices conversing with each other but they were not spoken neither her people's dialect or the common tongue here (which she is not entire fluent with). The first one, she presumes, was the voice of her host but the second one was unfamiliar. Unfortunate she could not look into it any further as she was still limited in mobility due to her injuries.

After some time, the two voices stopped talking, and Senah heard footsteps approaching. A large red hand emerged from between the two thick door-sized drapes that presumably served as the room's entrance, pulling one aside to allow a vaguely familiar face to poke in. The red woman gave Senah only the briefest of glances before turning around and pulling her hand back.

Which was suddenly followed by her zooming back in, much faster than before. "Oh, shit, you're awake!" She laughed as she lifted the drape further to allow more of her body through. "Sorry 'bout that, didn't think you'd be up so soon."

She turned around and said something excitedly to the owner of the other voice, presumably reporting that their wayward traveler was awake. They exchanged a few more words before the red woman walked further into the room and let the drape fall back down. Now that Senah was able to get a good look at her, she realized just how big this woman was. Not only was she much taller than Senah was, she also had thick muscles running through her entire body, filling out her figure.

Senah was rather more uncomfortable from the sight of the woman's...developed chest, which certainly wasn't helped by the fact that the woman was barely wearing enough fabric to cover her most sensitive areas. The woman didn't seem to notice her discomfort, though, instead stepping over all the items strewn about the floor to kneel down beside the edge of the bed.

"So, uh...I know ya probably have a lotta questions, an' you're probably wonderin' where you are, 'n' all that." She sheepishly ran a hand over the back of her neck. "Only makes sense. You passed out in a cave, and now you're in some stranger's bed? I'd sure as hell be confused. But first things first..." She pointed her thumb at herself. "I'm Toushiko, an oni from the Underworld." She gave a chuckle. "If that sounds scary, don't worry. I'm just here to help ya."

Toushiko looked over Senah's injuries, wincing slightly when she saw her foot. The ankle brace certainly seemed to be helping, but in the end, it was only a stopgap measure to keep it from getting worse. "Sorry about the brace," she said, gesturing toward Senah's foot. "It was all I could do myself, and the healer ain't around." She looked back up at Senah. "But we'll get to that later. For now, how're ya feelin'?"

It wasn't until that she was in the middle of sorting something near her backpack that  she hear the sound of someone approaching the room that her attention was brought towards the door where someone was coming.  It was the same red woman that she had seen before.

Even when she saw her once and even when she was her savior, Senah still felt a little intimidated seeing her, even moreso when she can see how well toned her body is through the more lack of coverage.  Then again this area is quite hot so Senah felt that the lack of coverage may be justified.   She was also aware of how much larger Toushiko is overall.  Senah was a fairly small person as it is and the size different is distinct between the two.  At least she wasn't instinctively backing off (and making her foot worse) this time.

Senah gesturing to herself briefly before she introduces herself almost seemingly to mimick Toushiko's sentence structure while being oddly methodical and a lot more quieter.  "I'm Senah, a human from the forest."  A brief pause was given in her words before she speaks again, more slowly.  "I thank you for helping me.  But what is an oni, and where is the Underworld?"  This was followed by a confused tone and expression as it was the first time she even heard of those.

In the midst of this, she decided to very carefully move her fingers to the ankle and foot, biting her lips briefly from the pain as she applied some minimal pressure before she closes her eyes briefly but still upright so not to alarm Toushiko as she feel the other injuries through the sensation all over her body alone before she open her eyes and speak.  "I feel tired and sore.   Ankle and foot is fractured but fortunate not out of place.  There are many cuts and scrapes that I need to disinfect.  I think I have or had a minor concussion."  

It was then that she breaks out a fairly unexpected small smile before she gestures to her backpack.  "I should have the medical supplies for most of them, the ankle and the foot is what needs the most time though."  She wipes the sweat from her forehead from the heat and takes her shirt by a small part of the front and tugs to create a bit of air circulation through her body to cool herself off a bit.

Toushiko opened her mouth to answer Senah's question, then paused. What...how was she supposed to answer that question, exactly? 'What's an oni'? Well, to her, they were just people. But to this Senah, they'd probably be something to be feared if she hadn't been saved by one.

After a moment, Toushiko just shrugged. "I dunno. What's a human?" She snorted. "Well, I guess I could be a little more helpful," she said. "We're pretty similar to you guys, actually. Only difference is, we're usually stronger, tougher, bigger, pretty much immune to alcohol poisoning, and apparently our skin color's weird." She smirked and gestured toward herself. "As you can see."

Her eyes drifted upward, toward the two horns curving out of her forehead. "Oh, yeah, we got these, too," she said, flicking one of them with her finger. "But, uh, other than that, there ain't much to note. As for your other question..." Toushiko trailed off as she considered how to answer it.

It was...probably wise to cut a bit from the full answer, she decided. If there was one thing Senah probably didn't need to hear right now, it was "you've been carried down to Hell, congratulations". Even if she didn't know what the Underworld was, Toushiko was pretty sure she knew what that was. No need to frighten the poor girl, now.

"The Underworld's...kinda what it sounds like," she said, giving another shrug. "This big ol' place deep underground where all kinds of different people live. Beasts, spirits, magi, demons...pretty much anything goes." She flashed a reassuring grin. "But don't worry yourself about any of 'em. Right here is where the oni live, and none of us would ever think to hurt'cha."

Another little white lie; there were certainly still some oni around who bore a grudge against humanity for forcing them underground in the first place, so many centuries ago. But what Senah didn't know couldn't hurt her—as long as Toushiko beat it to the ground first.

The oni listened to Senah's report of her health. "Yeesh, a concussion?" She shook her head. "Well, you're still awake and talkin' sense, so it probably ain't too bad." She edged forward on her knees to get a better look at Senah's backpack. "More supplies in there, huh?" She nodded. "Well, no harm in using 'em now, then. Our resident healer ain't around at the moment, but I'm sure I can get ya some more stuff when he gets back."

Before she could start treating Senah's injuries, she noticed the girl's visible discomfort from the heat. "Oh, yeah," she muttered. "Sorry, it's probably a little too hot down here. That's just the Underworld for ya, I'm afraid," she said with a rueful shrug. "I can get ya some drinks to cool ya down, though." She stood up and started for the door, then stopped. "Oh, but, uh, they're alcoholic." She coughed. "Like...really alcoholic. I have some lighter stuff, but I dunno if I'd even trust that, given your injuries...I can get somethin' clean, but it'll take a little while to prepare." She pointed her thumb toward the drapes. "You want me to go get that? Think you'll be okay on your own for a little bit?"

Senah looks a bit sheepish at asking the question of what is an oni, cheeks turning red from embarrassment at the potential rudeness of her inquiry but fortunately her host seems to be nonchalant about it.  In summary, what Toushiko is describing oni as just simply larger, stronger, technicolor skin beings with a tolerance for alcohol, probably loves it judging from the smell.

As for location, the description doesn't really paint much to give her any familiarity or comparison other than the fact that there is a large region under the earth that is quite hot in here, another pull on the collar of her shirt to cool herself down reaffirms this.  She also does not know of or who or what would be dangerous to her.  Dejected, it seems that she is going to need to rely on the physical protection of Toushiko, not that she didn't want to as the oni seems to be amiable but she does feel like she is imposing herself as a burden.  She would at least try to adapt to Toushiko's culture, at least to alcohol since it seems that is the more dominant part of her culture, and her liquid supply, though not until she feels more healthy.  

"Yes please.  I do not think I can drink alcohol yet."  Then Senah pauses for a moment.  "If you do not mind me asking.  Where do you go for food and drink?  I am not well verse in the Underworld and I feel like..what is the phase...fish out of water."  She gestures to her backpack "Many of the plants I grow will have trouble surviving here and only being of some druidic magic."  It was then that she held her hand to her forehead briefly trying to endure a dizzy spell.

Toushiko nodded. "Right, I'll go prepare some water, then," she said, standing up off the bed. "Got anymore questions before I take care a' that?"

The oni grinned at Senah's question. "Ohoho, don't even get me started. Y'see, oni are known around here for havin' pretty big appetites." She gestured to either side of her. "So demons are always comin' by and settin' up shop to sell their wares, and a lot of it is food." She shrugged. "Drinks, not so much, but only 'cause everyone knows they can't beat an oni brewmaster at their own game."

Toushiko gestured toward Senah's backpack. "So, in other words, I know we'll be able to find somethin' you like when ya get hungry. Y'know, so you can save your supplies for when ya need 'em...not that you'll be able to use most of 'em, down here." The oni's smile faded. "Since, uh, I think you're right about your plants. Most of the ground here's just stone or ash, and the soil we do have is pretty hostile to anything that wasn't made for it." She shrugged. "So, sorry. Not much we can do there, I don't think."

Senah's curiosity satisfied for the moment, Toushiko moved toward the hanging drapes that separated this room from the next one. "All right, I'm gonna go get that water for ya. Just hang on tight, I'll be back in a bit." She stepped through the drapes, leaving Senah alone in the room once more. She heard the oni have a short conversation with her presumed friend in that foreign language again, and it was only a few seconds before Senah heard more footsteps approaching her room.

This time, the visitor stepped through the drapes without poking her head in first. Senah could only assume that this was the owner of the voice she'd heard talking to Toushiko: a blue-skinned oni with softer features, long black hair that flowed past her shoulders, and a single horn protruding straight out from her forehead. She stood just as tall as Toushiko did, though she wasn't quite as muscular, looking a little thinner overall. She was also dressed just as loosely as Toushiko, to Senah's continuing discomfort, though at least her breasts were significantly smaller.

The newcomer eyed Senah for a moment, then said something to her in that foreign language of hers. After it was obvious that Senah couldn't understand her, she set her mouth in a thin line and narrowed her yellow eyes. Then, in a halting voice, she slowly said, "Is...English, okay?" She gestured toward herself. "I...Akane." She pointed toward Senah. "You...?"

"Setting up shop..."  As Toushiko is leaving, she mulled at the possibility of a new civilization which does pique her interest.  Although trying to get back to the surface is still her goal, should that become impossible or at least in progress, she could look into try to learn about everything here as she  accompany Toushiko.  Her gaze land woefully to her injured foot.  Eventually...

It was a disappointment to her that plants in generally have problems surviving down here but she is interested in looking into how the native ones do manage to here.  Perhaps she can grow a new generation of plants that are more resilient and adaptive for herself, though she should make sure they are not too prolific outside her influence.

It was then that she heard someone coming into the room.  Thinking it was either Toushiko or perhaps the other person she was speaking to a while ago.  Her question was answered when an entire different face (and color) peeks in before coming in.  She did take a moment to note that this other oni isn't as toned (or shapely) as Toushiko though.  Senah is curious of what profession both of them are that makes a fairly big difference in how their body developed.

The foreign oni language spoken to her only result in a slightly confused look on Senah's face with a sad shake of the head before the familiar words of the outside language, apparently called English, was spoken as her eyes lit up in reocgnition.  "Yes, I speak English."  She slows down her pronunciation and sentence while using more basic words seeing how the oni didn't had as firm grasp of the language.  "I am Senah, it is nice to meet you." Senah mentally notes to ask Toushiko about learning the oni language both to speak with Akane better and to others within the Underworld.
