Zhu didn’t look back at Aiyana as she replied to the fox woman “Alright. I only need you for support however. This battle is mine, and mine alone. I have to be the one to kill it Otherwise the Scorekeeper will not grant me the lamia’s power.” She explained very easily to her companion. It took a bit of time to arrive at the ruins and what they arrived at was the great courtyard at the base of a ruined temple. The stones were sandstone construction, they were broken, rotting, and cracked in several places. The courtyard was also decorated with cracked, broken, and sometimes toppled columns, that seemed to be in some kind of image, or design, but there was no way to be certain of it anymore.
This seemed to intrigue Zhu and she moved towards one of the following columns that were toppled over. She knelt down and ran a finger along a rather large slash. It was from a weapon of course in fact, it was a rather large bladed weapon. She frowned as she sank a finger almost up to the base of the appendage, it was not a good sight to see it meant that this lamia was not just using its claws. She sighed as she spoke “This Lamia is wielding a weapon. I’d say it has some kind of heavy blade and large blade. Do be careful.” She warned before she slowly stood back up looking around to the temple “The foe is in there, but I am not going to fight on its terms. If we were to go in there, we would be at a great disadvantage. I am not about to go into that temple however.”
She pressed her hands together in front of herself. Slowly as she pulled them away and between her hands formed the shaft of her favorite spell weapon. It was the Kwan Dao known as Green Dragon. She tossed it up into the air and let it spin in the air before she deftly caught it in the air calling out as loudly as she could. “Come out here you pathetic worm! Come out with your ugly skin, and your hideous features to face your death!” Her voice echoed around the courtyard and into the ruins. It didn’t take long before the deafening hiss came from inside of the ruins. It was the clear sign of a Lamia and much to Zhu’s surprise her little plan had actually worked. She had never expected it to, but apparently Lamia were not the smartest creatures ever, or maybe this one was just hungry and wouldn’t pass up easy food.
