And just like that, they were victorious in this small encounter. Though the way Arete ultimately dealth with the hounds was quite... well, Leila decided to ignore it and try to not think about it too much. They were not humans after all. And she had slayed them in the past herself, so what was the problem? Perhaps she just learned to value life little bit more after everything she had lived thrugh. In any case, they were both ready to proceed and so they did. And as they moved through more, this time perfectly empty, halls of stone, the girl heard something strange. As if a chatter between men with the same voice? Rushing ahead, she spotted thing most curious.
Somehow, they managed to find a way towards the end of this tomb that was shorther than the one she herself took in the past. For right now, they were at the end where the grave of famed pirate lied. And next to it, a man somewhat crazed looking muttering to himself. So that was why, he talked to himself out loud. "If I just return it all, they won't be mad, no no... ooooh, it's you! You did it all, you brought about the curse! Perish!"
But as one would have it, he noticed the girl midway his own sentence. Grabbing the long weapon sitting beside him, he would jump forth and start spinning around. In the last moment, Leila managed to block the blow with her bow at the cost of being knocked back into a wall.
Unfortunately for her partner, she wished to end this as soon as possisble, seeing how this individual somehow had a thing against her. So as he slowly stopped spinning and tried to regain his balance, she was already prepared to strike him back. Wind quickly started embracing her arrow, almost forming a small tornado around it. "I have no idea who you are, but I'll have you sleep for a bit! Wolf Shot!"
And with that, she fired. The shot itself was so fast that one could barely see it with naked eye, only noticing the line that it left behind. A ine that went straight through the man. It did not actually penetrate his body, as the arrow seemingly phased through him via some unknown means. But it was enough damage to put him down.
With a sigh, the girl would nod towards her partner who most likely witnessed it all, hoping he would not mind. Now, what exactly was this guy doing her? The tomb should be empty from the last time she was here. Curious, she went to the grave itself and looked into it, only to be surprised once more. "Oh, for the- those are my things!"
The pirate's garp and inscribed stone. They were both in there. Recollecting what he said, the girl figured out what was probalby going on here. After her own death, this one managed to find some of her old equipment and knowing what it was, he tried to return it her for a fear of being cursed by the dead pirate... or something to that effect, probably. "Well, I'm taking this back. There's probably something for you as well, but... seems like we cleared this place. Good job~"
