    -Outside Sombras Manor, midnight-

    Wearing her green, white, and gold outfit with bike shorts underneath the skirt, Argent Gloves on her hands, and Silver Longsword on her left hip, Leona walked down a path surrounded by woods. As she walked towards Sombras Manor she could not help but to feel that the imposing four-floor structure was staring her down as she approached it. Leona looked up towards one of the windows and could have sworn that she saw a spectral figure gazing at her through the window, but it vanished before her eyes could fully focus on it. Leona shrugged it off and looked at the front double doors to the manor. They were made of solid wood and seemed to be in rather good shape considering the age of the place, which looked to be much older than the Wizard Saint.

    Leona walked until she was within five meters of the front door, then paused to catch her breath and stretch her legs. It had been a long walk from Silver Wolf Guild Hall to Sombras Manor and the Wizard Saint was winded. She did not think to hitch a ride on Winged Lion until she was already here... oh well. She had been called here by the Order of Lightbringers mage Amberlin, who had specifically requested Leona's help in investigating the manor. Having worked with Amberlin at least once before and wanting to do something to take her mind off of her last job, the Wizard Saint decided to answer the call.

    Leona had gotten here as fast as she could. However, she did not see Amberlin anywhere in the immediate area... maybe the cleric had already gone inside to start her investigation. The Wizard Saint would go in soon, but first she really needed to take a break.

    Once she had taken a five-minute break and stretched her legs, Leona looked at the doors. She took a deep breath to focus, then began to approach them. She had only taken four steps towards them when they creaked open of their own accord, causing her to pause in place. It was like someone had been expecting her. Leona was debating whether to go inside or not without her job partner when she was interrupted.

    "LEONAAAAAA! LEONA, WAIT FOR ME!" A female voice called out to the Wizard Saint. The blonde remained in place and turned around to see Amberlin running towards her from about four meters away. Leona turned around and waved at the pink and white-clad cleric to show that she had heard her shouting and was acknowledging it.

    "Oh hey Amberlin! I was just about to go inside when you showed up!" Leona greeted the pink-haired Order cleric once the latter reached her. Amberlin exhaled loudly and looked at Leona with blue eyes, then backed away a half-meter and began to breathe deeply.

    "I'm glad... that I caught up. With you in... in time. Leona." Amberlin said between deep breaths. While Leona waited for her partner to recover from the exertion of running to get here she looked towards the open doors. The Wizard Saint thought that she heard a female child laughing from somewhere within the manor.

    "Did... did you hear that?" Amberlin asked Leona, recovering from her exertion almost instantly. Leona looked towards the pink-haired mage and nodded.

    "Yeah, I heard it. It sounded like a young girl laughing." Leona replied in the affirmative. Amberlin looked towards the Wizard Saint, then towards the open doors that were patiently waiting on the pair to enter Sombras Manor.

    "Well, the manor won't investigate itself..." Amberlin said to Leona with a voice full of apprehension. Leona could tell that the cleric was not exactly thrilled to be going into a place infamous for paranormal activity, but she would do it because it was her duty as a member of the Order of Lightbringers.

    "I'm here to help you, Amberlin. Let's do this." Leona said in an effort to bolster her colleague's confidence. Together the pair walked towards the open double doors and passed through them. Once they had walked through the doors creaked shut behind them.

    -Inside Sombras Manor-

    Leona and Amberlin looked at their surroundings and noticed that they had a choice of direction. They could either take the large hallway to their left or go down the one that led straight ahead. The pair also noticed that there were a lot of lacrima lanterns hanging from the walls around them. The lanterns were casting an eerie orange light on their surroundings, but that was not the creepiest thing about the place. Both mages felt like they were being watched by many pairs of invisible eyes.

    Leona and Amberlin were busy trying to decide which hallway to go down first when they heard a young girl's laughter coming from what sounded like everywhere. The lanterns began to glow blood red, then emerald green. The Wizard Saint and the Order cleric observed the changes with great concern.

    "I'm soooooo bored! It's been such a long time since I've had any guests... I know what we can do! We can play a game!" The young girl's voice told them. When they heard that Leona and Amberlin braced for the worst.

    Red Light, Green Light Empty Re: Red Light, Green Light

    Post by Leona Jarnefeldt 17th February 2021, 12:33 am

    "A game? What kind of game?" Leona blurted out a question as the lanterns continued to shift between blood red and emerald green. The voice giggled at her as if making fun of her for asking the question. Leona frowned. Leona did not have the best childhood while growing up, so she had very little knowledge of popular childhood games and how they worked.

    "You funny old lady! It's an old game called Red Light, Green Light! An adult like you should know what that game is!" The voice answered while Leona bristled at being called an "old lady." She was not that old. She was only twenty years old, for Ishgar's sake!

    Once Leona calmed down she remembered that she had never heard of that game before. She looked at Amberlin for an explanation. The pink-haired mage gave a pained smile to the blonde and then gave her a summary of how the game worked.

    "Red Light, Green Light's a game where you move towards a person when the light's green, kinda like you do at traffic lights. When the light's green you move as fast as you can towards the person, but don't go too fast because they can call for a red light at any time. If you're caught moving on a red light you're out of the game." Amberlin explained how the game worked to Leona. The voice giggled again.

    "The small girl's right! Only in this game you guys want to get to the third floor of the manor! When the light's green run for it as fast as you can, but don't get caught moving on a red light or you'll be sorry!" The voice told them. Leona did not like the sound of that. It sounded like the stakes for getting caught moving during a red light were much higher than just being unable to play a game any longer.

    Amberlin turned to the Wizard Saint and made a suggestion.

    "OK, let's try the hallway to our left first. I've been here before, but it's been almost two years ago since I was last here, so I might get us turned around. I think left is the way we need to go." Amberlin suggested to Leona. Lacking any better ideas of her own, the blonde agreed to the cleric's idea. The lights began to flicker faster and that put the two mages on edge.

    "Watching you two talk is soooooo boring! The game's about to start, so you'd better get ready to run if you know what's good for you!" The young girl warned them. The lights flickered faster and faster until they stopped on green.

    "GO NOW!" Amberlin shouted to Leona. Both mages sprinted forward as fast as they could go to cover ground before the light turned red and they had to stop. However, Leona was taller and had longer legs than Amberlin, so the former covered more ground than the latter. Both of them kept running until the light began to flicker red, than screeched to a halt with mere seconds to spare; Leona stopped at the corner while Amberlin was about six meters behind her

    "Hey Amberlin, are you sure we're going the right way? I'm not seeing anything but more hallway up ahead!" Leona shouted a question to Amberlin, who was standing six meters away.

    "I don't know, Leona. Like I said, it's been awhile since I was last here!" Amberlin shouted back. Leona blushed a little when she heard that. Open mouth, insert foot. She quickly recovered from the mishap and called back her plan to Amberlin.

    "The next light I'm gonna walk so that you can catch up with me because I don't know where I'm going!" Leona called back. Amberlin nodded. Leona turned back around and once the lights flashed green she began to walk slowly around the corner while Amberlin scrambled to catch up with the taller blonde. The scene would be kind of funny if it were not for the unknown consequences of being caught in motion on a red light.

    Amberlin caught up to Leona just before the lanterns turned red. The pair stopped where they were and took a deep breath, then looked at each other. They were doing well so far, but they should not get complacent. The Wizard Saint doubted that the second floor would be so easy to traverse.

    "I might be wrong, but I think that this hall bends to the right and leads to a staircase that'll take us to the second floor. If I'm right we just took the long way around, but we'll get to the staircase as long as we pay attention to the color of the lanterns." Amberlin chimed in. Leona gave a thumbs-up.

    "I don't know the way around, so your guess is as good as mine." Leona replied calmly. The Wizard Saint of Courage had learned long ago to swallow her pride and defer to others when she did not know something. Now she was deferring to the Order cleric who had been to this place once before. Even though Amberlin was unsure of which way to go, being able to borrow her knowledge of the manor was better than having no knowledge at all.

    "OK then. Once the light turns green, follow me." Amberlin instructed Leona. The blonde nodded and waited for the lanterns to turn green before moving again. She did not want to find out the consequences of moving on a red light, so she would wait right where she was until it was safe for them to move.

    After moments of waiting the lanterns turned green and the mages went into motion to cover as much distance as they could before they had to stop again. Leona jogged to avoid outrunning her partner as Amberlin ran around the corner and disappeared for a moment. The Wizard Saint picked up the pace and caught up with Amberlin, who had stopped in place as the lanterns began to flicker.

    "STOP!" Amberlin shouted a warning to the blonde. Leona obediently put on the brakes and screeched to a halt at Amberlin's left with only a second to spare and held her breath. Had she waited too long to stop jogging? Seconds passed and nothing happened to them. Leona exhaled in relief.

    "Looks like I'm in the clear this time." Leona remarked to Amberlin. The pink-haired cleric looked to her left and gave Leona a small smile.

    "Yeah. We've got a few seconds before we can move again, so let me point out the stairs." Amberlin said. She raised a gloved hand and pointed to the corner in front of them.

    "Around that corner and down the hall on the left side is a stairway that leads to the second floor. Hopefully there aren't any lanterns on the way up to the second floor because it's kinda hard to make any meaningful progress up the stairs." Amberin informed Leona of where the stairs leading to the second floor would be. Leona nodded in understanding.

    "OK. As soon as the lights turn green we're going for it." Leona said.

    "Right!" Amberlin replied in a bold voice in an effort to boost her confidence. She knew that she was at a bit of a disadvantage because of her shorter legs, so she had to work harder to keep up with the Wizard Saint who was almost as fast as the wind. The cleric looked down the halls and noticed that the lights were flickering from red to green. She pointed them out to Leona and the blonde took notice and prepared to jog. Once the lanterns flickered green and stayed green the pair took off towards the stairs.

    Again Leona jogged so that Amberlin could keep up with her and the pair was making good progress when they had to stop halfway to their goal. The pair screeched to a halt just in time to avoid the penalty for moving on a red light. They took an enforced break while keeping their eyes peeled for both the signal to move and for any unpleasant surprises that their ghostly hostess had sent their way like ghosts or zombies. So far the coast was clear, so they only had to focus on playing the "game" their hostess had set up.

    Once the light turned green they jogged the rest of the way and reached the stairs without incident. Leona went up first followed by Amberlin, who carefully looked down at the stairs in order to avoid looking up the Wizard Saint's skirt even though the blonde had on bike shorts. Leona happened to look back and blushed when she noticed her partner looking down... next time she would let Amberlin go up the stairs first.

    -On the second floor-

    Leona and Amberlin reached the top of the stairs and took a look around. In front of them loomed a wide hallway lined with doors and dusty old furniture ending at a window that overlooked the woods. To their right was a wide hallway lined with oil paintings that looked liked they had been cleaned only yesterday. Leona found that odd but shrugged it off in favor of paying attention to the lanterns hanging around the area, which were currently on red.

    "Which way do we go?" Leona asked Amberlin. The cleric silently pointed down the hallway to their right.

    "OK. I'll follow your lead." Leona told Amberlin. The pair heard ghostly laughter again and braced themselves for an unpleasant surprise. They were probably about to get hit with a new stipulation to make the game more "interesting" to their invisible hostess. And by "interesting" that meant "dangerous" like a wave of zombies, ghosts, or some other beings hostile to the living. Oh well. No one ever said being a Wizard Saint was easy.

    "This game's kinda boring, so I'm gonna add a surprise!" Their hostess told Leona and Amberlin. Leona grimaced. Amberlin looked at Leona with an expression of dread on her face. They waited to hear what that surprise was and soon got their answer. The lights at first glowed a ghostly blue, then they began to flicker faster than they had on the first floor, meaning that there was a lot less room for error.

    "This should be a lot more fun to watch now!" The voice congratulated herself for the new addition and started giggling. Leona and Amberlin remained silent. This new twist was going to make things tough, but they would have to find a way through it.

    Red Light, Green Light Empty Re: Red Light, Green Light

    Post by Leona Jarnefeldt 28th February 2021, 1:13 am

    After their hostess changed the speed of the lanterns the pair remained silent and watched them flicker to determine exactly how fast the new speed was. They watched them flicker from green to red in about five seconds, which was half the time they had on the first floor. Leona did not have any problem with it because she was fast on her feet, but the shorter time limit would work against Amberlin because of her shorter legs.

    "Well, that was unexpected, but I'm ready to move when you're ready." Leona said to Amberlin, who did not like the look of this. She looked up at Leona. She looked like she had an idea.

    "I'm ready too, but before we move, I had an idea for this floor that I'd like to share with you. I go ahead on the first red light, green light sequence and you follow me on the second." Amberlin suggested to the Wizard Saint. Leona looked at the pink-haired cleric and then at the lights. That was a sensible idea... it would make sure that Leona would not leave her behind by accident, but then the blonde thought of a downside to that plan.

    What if Leona caught up with her on the second red light, green light and accidentally ran into Amberlin just as the light changed red?

    "That's a good idea, Amberlin. But what if I run into you and knock us down when the light's about to turn red?" Leona asked her smaller companion. Amberlin blinked and gave Leona's reservation some thought.

    "I would say to just let you go first since you're a lot faster than I am, but I don't want us to get separated." Amberlin offered up another suggestion and then shot it down in the same sentence. Leona found that to be a reasonable concern and did not protest when the cleric nixed the idea. Amberlin then offered another suggestion to the Wizard Saint.

    "I suggest that we go only two meters at a time so that you don't outpace me. I also think that as long as we keep moving forward we're good. It'll be slow going, but I don't want to risk getting caught on a red light for getting greedy." Amberlin suggested to Leona. The blonde nodded.

    "Good idea. As soon as it goes green I'm going only two meters." Leona informed her. Amblerin gave a small smile and looked forward so that she could judge when the light would turn green. Leona followed suit.

    The two mages would play it safe and only go two meters at a time instead of getting greedy and trying to steal three meters in a single dash and risk getting caught on red. In this manner they would slowly but surely advance down the hallway at a pace the pink-haired cleric could easily keep up with. Leona would do a two-meter sprint and Amberlin would follow behind. It seemed that they were going with the nixed plan to let Leona go first, but that was out of necessity rather than it being a good idea.

    With that being decided, the next time it turned green the pair made a dash for it. Leona raced down the hall first while Amberlin did her best to follow the Wizard Saint. The pair made it to two meters and stopped with a second to spare. The light flashed red, but by then both mages were safely stopped.

    While on an enforced break Leona looked around at the hallway they were running down and noticed that all of the decorations  in this hallway were paintings. The paintings on display had a definite "farm" theme: the painting just to her right was a painting of a man cutting down wheat with a scythe and the one to her left was another man sowing seeds in a field. That was all Leona had time to look at before she had to get moving again. Once the light turned green the blonde began to run another two meters with Amberlin following close behind.

    Amberlin was so quiet that aside from the sound of footsteps coming from behind Leona barely knew that the cleric was there. When Leona stopped at the two-meter mark she felt obliged to ask if the pink-haired mage was still with her.

    "Hey Amberlin, are you still with me?" Leona asked the cleric standing to her right while looking forward.

    "Yeah, I'm OK!" Amberlin replied confidently while looking forward. This was a slow way to get down the hallway, but as far as the blonde knew they were not under a strict time limit to get to the third floor. All they had to do was advance down the hallway and not get caught moving on a red light.

    As soon as the light turned green they did another two-meter dash and stopped in the nick of time in front of a painting of a log cabin sitting in the middle of a prairie with grass that was waving in the wind. Leona turned her head left to look at it and felt an odd sense of peace coming from the painting, but she did not have time for art appreciation. She had to get ready to move again shortly and needed to be focused so that she did not mess up the timing and find out what the penalty was for moving on a red light. She turned her head toward the hall and waited for the next green light to flicker on before she dared to move forward.

    -On the second floor, ten minutes later-

    After a slow and steady progression down the hallway Leona and Amberlin were so close to the stairs that they could almost reach out and touch the doorframe, but now was not the time to get careless. They had made it this far by playing it safe and they were not going to throw that away and get greedy when their goal was within sight. Resisting the impulse to steal another few meters and make it to the stairs before the red light came on, Leona stayed where she was, which was about five meters from the stairs that led up. The light flashed green and it was time to go.

    "IT'S GREEN! GO!" Amberlin shouted. Leona faced forward and rushed forward two meters, then paused in place and waited for Amberlin to catch up. The pink-haired mage did and the pair patiently waited through the red light. They were three meters from their goal and patience was more important now than it had been earlier. Once the light turned green they sprinted forward another two meters and paused, resisting the urge to complete the dash and jump on the stairs.

    "We're so close! The stairs are right there!" Amberlin said to Leona, pointing to the stairs that were in front of them and only a meter away to the right. The pink-haired cleric looked towards the stairs and clearly wanted to throw caution to the wind and risk a dash to the stairs. Leona would be lying if she said that she did not feel the same urge, but she managed to resist it. Leona took a deep breath and faced the cleric.

    "We're almost there, Amberlin. Just be patient a little longer." Leona advised her companion. It was a sad day when Leona was the one counseling patience to someone. The Wizard Saint had learned patience the hard way and she was determined not to let her impatience get her into trouble like it had several times in the past. Leona took another deep breath and faced forward.

    "We're gonna have to decide who goes for the stairs first, Amberlin. Both of us won't be able to squeeze through the doorframe at the same time. But we don't need to split up because who knows what's waiting for us on the third floor." Leona raised a point to her companion. Amberlin sighed.

    "You're right, Leona. We can't both fit through the doorframe at the same time, but we're gonna have to split up anyway in order for both of us to get through. I say that you go first. You're faster than I am and can fight if there's anything waiting for us on the third floor." Amberlin suggested. Leona looked towards the stairs and decided that Amberlin was right. She would go first and see if it was safe for Amberlin to join her. If it was, she would call down to the cleric. If not, she would fight whatever was waiting for them and clear the way for the cleric.

    "OK. I'm going now. Wait for my signal!" Leona said. Amberlin nodded. The moment the light turned green Leona sprinted for the stairwell and made it with a second or two to spare. She hurriedly climbed the stairs and reached the third floor.

    -On the third floor-

    Leona stepped onto the third floor and carefully looked around for anything hostile like zombies or ghosts but did not see either of those. She also did not see the young ghost that was their hostess, but she was obviously a ghost, so Leona would not see her without special glasses, a special spell, or some other item. Furthermore, Leona did not see any lanterns here, which meant that there was no more Red Light, Green Light... she hoped. The Wizard Saint looked around a little more before she walked back to the stairs to give Amberlin the all-clear.

    "IT'S CLEAR, AMBERLIN! RUN FOR THE STAIRS WHEN YOU'RE READY!" Leona shouted down the stairs with her hands cupped over her mouth.

    "OK!" Amberlin called out. At the next green light Leona heard the rapid thumping of footsteps on the floor and saw Amberlin scramble up the stairs until she reached the top. Leona backed out of the way to give the pink-haired cleric room to stand up because it looked like the latter had overexerted herself during the hurried climb.

    "I... I made it." Amberlin panted. Leona looked around the area and noticed that its layout was exactly like the second floor. It had a hallway that led straight ahead and had a window on the end and a hallway that led right. The Wizard Saint was not sure which way they should go, which was why she was waiting on Amberlin to recover before she made a move.

    "When I was younger I hated Red Light, Green Light. I wasn't a very good runner, so I couldn't cover much ground before I had to stop. I was even worse at sudden stops because sometimes I'd stop too hard and fall on my face." Amberlin groused a bit about the game they had just played. Leona did not blame her at all. If that was a childhood game, Leona was glad that she had missed out on it. Even though she was faster than Amberlin, Leona was not very good with sudden stops either. She was just glad that she had not fallen onto the ground face-first during one of her many sudden stops during the run down the hallway.

    "Well, we're on the third floor. Now where do we go from here?" Amberlin asked Leona. They heard the giggling again and looked at each other with expressions of dread. Whatever happened next was probably not going to be good.
