Return to the Vloz'ress mines

Chi stifled a giggle. "In Chel, 'taking point' means going first," she told the top of Garrus' head. He vanished into the darkness and she followed a few seconds later, hovering a small ball of mana for light.

The place looked odd - was it older? She saw some crumbling remains... leave it to the Vloz to not even respect their dead. "This must be the mine shaft," she whispered. "Closed off years ago from the look of it. Tainted mana is that way," she pointed. "Let's go see how many we've got." The manic eye gleam was back.

She let him lead. Why not?

"This isn't the mine the stone is too well worked and I've been to the mine before the Volzz's took over." Garrus said as he re-equipped his shield and sword. "Its much rougher, and don't think the Volzzs cleaned it up that much."

Suddenly there was a shout from one of the hallways.

* * *

Mean while down that hall way. Mir'ova jumped in her boot from the sudden shout from one of her cohorts. Drawing her blade she turned to see what the noise was about. "What the fuck is wrong?" She stopped suddenly and gave a wide eye look to what she saw.

The cohort was in the middle of opening up a stubborn door, when a broken face appeared in the behind it. "Its a Golem!" Rett spoke out. "A leathery one to be exact." and she was right. It had to have been made out of three people. And as they pried the door open, showing the rest of the contents. It was a crude lab. "Lets see if we can get this thing working."

* * *

"That must be them." Garrus said with a bit of concern in his voice. Whatever the problem was, he hoped it was just a spider or something else small that would spook somebody. He would hate for it to be a problem.

Leading the way Garrus could hear heavy foot steps echoing from down the hall.

Chi shrugged about her misinterpretation of the mines. She was hardly an expert on the topic. Just then someone shouted.

Stupid corrupted. Seriously, had they even heard of discipline? Garrus sounded a little worried, and she gave him a comforting shoulder pat. He still wanted to lead, so she let him. "They're distracted, so they'll be easy to take," she whispered. "And don't worry. I've got your back."

Whatever treasure it was was starting to worry her, though. Ada was probably too simple. Was it something else? Some form of new corrupted mana arts tome or something?

Garrus turned his head and nodded back to Chi as she assured him she had his back. They ventured forward into the dark hallways, stepping over fallen rocks and other discarded left overs from the Volzzs.

The corrupted that were once down this hall, but have seemed to have moved to another location as their voices talked carelessly from down another hall. Garrus was beginning to wonder what would it take to catch up with these corrupted at this rate. But his thoughts were cut off as he raised his shield in time to block a giant meaty fist.

His shield gave off a loud rang from the impact and his arm went numb from shock. It hurt so hard, that he was seeing black spots from the pain, and without thinking he stabbed out to the large creature that hit him. The flesh Golem took a solid hit to the chest, but was other wise didn't seem to be affected much, as hit him back and knocked him into the wall.

The thing was taller then Garrus and about hundred pounds heavier, and it loomed over the pair with soulless eyes.

Oh abyss no.

About... what, 8 years ago now? Her memory was so fuzzy. The recruit was scared, but she was determined to not let her fear stop her from going down that alley. It made Chi wish she had an empath. Cute girl, lacked the family backing to be a high ranking warden, but determined to serve the goddess. The Vloz in question attacked from the side, just like this. Only the demon managed to taint the girl. Her name was Vauna Kyorl'souren, and she took her own life with such a regal acceptance.

She would be damned if this was going to happen again.

The golem knocked Garrus aside and Chi sprang, focusing on swinging her sword downward. It couldn't taint them, but it would be much easier to kill if it was immobilized. Her face showed nothing but concentration. Gone was the usual manic grin.

Her sword cut through about half the golem's leg. Snarling, she pulled it free. The golem didn't go down as she had hoped, but it did shudder violently. Unable to support its weight evenly, it leaned against the wall, still dangerous.

"I compromised its mobility, time to take out its-" she couldn't finish because all the air in her lungs was gone. Her back suddenly hurt. She realized a split second later that she had been flung against the wall. Her lungs struggled to remember how to breathe, and she struggled to find a plan. If the arms were as well built as the legs, her first thought of lopping them off was probably not going to work...

Garrus nodded to Chi, not that he needed to be told they were on real trouble and that golem wouldn't have a problem grinding their bones at this rate.

The monster limped and hoped heavily towards Garrus, clearly favouring the 'good' leg and the wall to help it move. The golem arms an arm like a sludge hammers ready to strike, when something happened. Garrus in that short time could make out something out of his mana vision, something he didn't notice it before. Some form of mana was sitting in the between the chest muscles.

Without thinking about it Garrus stuck the pool of mana and there was a noise of glass breaking as his black sword struck true and cracked the power source. The Golem fell to the side were his leg was damaged and landed with a heavy thud.


"What the fuck is that noise!" An angry voice echoed from down the hall.

...power source. Well, she was thinking take out the weaponry, but that worked. It wasn't tainted mana, so it didn't even need to be contained.

Chi focused. Block the pain. The breath will come back when the diaphragm relaxes. In the meantime, you can use your eyes, your mana, and your brain. The tainted mana was ahead and to the left.

"What the fuck is that noise?"

Chi grinned. That noise is us, your personal welcome-to-Raveran party. Her breath was starting to come back, and she managed to find her footing. She turned to Garrus and gave him a thumbs-up. Speaking was still a moment away, but she could walk. This time she led the way toward the tainted mana and the noise.

That was a lucky shot, Garrus thought to himself as he stood up. But luck saved their lives, so it was good enough for him. That golem would have torn him from limbs from limbs. His chest felt sore and so did his shield arm, and his shoulder and back to a an extent. But he could still move and fight... he could only hope Chi was alright once the adrenalin petered.

Following Chi now, he could see now the mana from the corrupted in another room, rummaging though things looking for something... well some of them were. It seemed that a pair were sent to check on the golem and almost walked right into Chi. "What the Fu-" was all the merc said before he realized who the pair were.

"We're you're personal Welcome-to-Raveran party," Chi said conversationally while inserting her sword into the nearest Merc's gut. The second merc gave a shout of warning and raised a mace.

Chi blocked the mace with her gauntleted arm, but it was a heavy hit. She barely had time to snap her sword out of the first merc and try it against the second. It didn't hit as deep as she expected, but it surprised the enemy. The first merc gave a death rattle and grabbed her arm. She was oddly touched by the corrupted's loyalty. It was going to die in just a few minutes, but it didn't want her to win.

She brought her sword up, slitting its throat. Mercy killing, out of respect. But this distraction had a price: the mace came down, hard, on the back of her head.

Chi reeled. She was conscious, but knocked forward across the brave merc's body. She cursed herself for being so stupid as to leave herself exposed...

Garrus's sword descended on the mercs head as he raised his mace to strike down Chi. The sword connected first, almost splitting the mercs skull in two, spilling all manner of gore and chips of bone every where. But it wasn't enough to stop the mace but the force behind was slowed, that only gravity was setting it in motion, saving Chi's life... Not that Garrus knew that.

When he saw his warden go down, it set him into a fit of rage. If only I was in faster, was all he thought to himself.

Garrus's black sword sank deep into another Mercs chest as he approached him. A spear lunged out from the darkness, glancing just off the back of his neck and chain mail as he stepped to the side, barely dodging the full blow. Another swords woman came forward and struck a blow on Garrus's sword arm. Dropping his sword and reeling from that strike, Garrus was pressed by the three remaining mercs.

The other shoe hadn't dropped. Chi realized that the mace-wielder was down. Pushing herself up, she turned to see three armed corrupteds closing in on Garrus. A swordswoman, a sloppy male wielding a metallic club, and a woman with a spear. What was with the Vloz and polearms, anyway?

Well, defending males' honor was what a lady did best. Particularly when the male in question had just taken out her attacker.

Idiots. They had their backs to her. She wanted to call some attention to herself, but decided to press her advantage another way. She grabbed Garrus' sword and used them both like a pair of oversized scissors, lopping the male's leg off. He was so much smaller than the golem, and his ill-fitting armor did nothing to protect him. He fell, screaming.

"Oh, you forgot about me?" Her lunatic grin was back. She kept Garrus' sword for another dual attack, enjoying the black blade and the white blade duality. Nice. She couldn't lop off the spearwoman's arm, but the weapon was snapped cleanly in two.

"Garrus, here!" She held his weapon to him and turned to the swordswoman. "I can take this one on myself."

Garrus was shocked and over joyed at Chi's sudden appeace and resuce he must add! "Thanks!" He said as he took his sword back and pressed back at his former attackers. Particularly that spear wielder bitch that almost took off his head. Too bad she lacking a serious weapon.


* * *

The Volzz cursed her luck. What were the odds of a pair greys finding them and getting this far. She glared at the warden in front of her, "I'm going to tare off your head and shit down your ---" Was all she said before Chi's sword cleanly sliced off her nose. "AHHH!" Mir'ova shouted and sputtered as she stepped back. Swinging her sword wildly, trying to keep the Warden off her.


Rett on the other hand wasn't doing well against the templar. She lost her footing on a pool of blood left behind from a pair of bloody stumps. Her last expression on her face, was a wide eyed gapped tooth look of surprise, as the top of her head was sliced off. Leaving it bouncing on the floor, like a spilt bowl of chunky paste.

* * *

In the room across from the fighting were the Volzz were, is a room that was messy from a search and in a courner of the room is a hole dug into the floor. And in the hole is a small chest. (I just put this here so you dont have to wait for the next post to wait and see.)
