The smoke seemed to of cleared out on its own, reduced to a haze. Chikane had engaged in a fight herself and it didn't surprise Rita that she was holding up just fine. As for Lance he would have to snap himself out of it without her help this time, Rita was a bit caught up herself. She found herself in a little bit of a predicament. She was surrounded by four of them, all of them pointed their guns at her. It was only a matter of seconds before they all would pull the trigger......and just as they did Rita acted. In the crossfire, the mage dove to the floor and slid between the two to her left. The bullets missed her, Instead each of the treasure hunters were fooled into taking each other down via gunfire, all while she slipped out of the way.
Rita stood back up ad dusted herself off. Something caught Rita's eyes, on the wall: were those hieroglyphics?... They had to be, Rita had seen this style of writing before and it was far from modern. Rita glanced down the passage quickly noticed that as the tunnel continued, parts of the wall with the writings seemed to of been cut off in areas or crumbled in on itself.
She examined the floor of the passage and sitting against the wall out of view she spotted TNT pumps. A light went off in Rita's head, she knew what was going on now. Those explosions from earlier...The ones that caused all of noise and smoke and the scent of gunpowder. These treasure hunters must of been setting off these explosives. It made some sense now. The ruff man made passageways, The damaged hieroglyphics, The Gem Brothers, The Old Wizard Saints Trove.
How stupid. Did they really think it was a good idea to blow shit up until they found where the trove was, even if that meant destroying the original temple passage ways in the process? Things would of been easier for them if they had elected to explore it first instead of set up their explosives!
Rita had dozed off again and completely forgot that she was still on the battlefield, she just barely dove out of the way of gunfire, but failed to evade the enemies next move-
Unfortunately, the wizard was caught in the bast of one of the treasure hunters explosives. She was thrown back into the wall-no through the wall and ended up crashing into a passage on the other side. The wall had crumbled in the explosions wake, opening up into another room completely. Before Rita hit the ground she slammed back first into something and knocked whatever it was over in the process.
Ouch what a headache she had...Rita failed to comprehend what had just happened in that split second. It was strange...The Shadow mage felt as if she was laying in a pile of gravel of all things, perhaps that explosion had messed up her senses in the process? She reached for the ground to push herself up to her feet, but instead her hand sunk into the pile of various stones she had landed in. Rita began to regain some sense and when she looked down, she saw that she was not sitting in gravel but instead she was surrounded by an assortment of gems.
To Rita's convenience, When she had been thrown through the wall and into the trove itself she had knocked over a chest, spilling out all of its contents and landed into the pile of treasures. Rita never thought she would say it but she was glad that she was such a klutz sometimes. Because with it came allot of dumb luck.
This had to of been that trove thing that they were looking for. The place looked nothing like the grungy tunnel ways they had been battling out in. It was allot more spacious than she had initially imagined and filled with various chests. Rita's sight met with row upon row of tall marble pillars that rose overhead, Supporting the high risen ceiling. The room was well lit with millions of gold torches bracketed into the walls.
It hurt like a bitch but Rita made it back up to to her feet and saw that the floor was in scribbled with the same type of patterns she saw crumbling away in the tunnel minutes before. Unlike in the tunnel, the walls here were not stone, they had been bricked in with striped blocks of onyx, jasper, and jade.
They found what they were looking for now they just had to weed out the rest of her foes.
