Arm raised and ready to hurl another blast of power back at the advancing assassins (Something that hadn't quite settled in on him yet), Felix was close to being tackled out of the back door by Pandora. By close, his bulky frame was attempted to be shoved out the doorway by the slight form of Pandora. It wasn't successful in the way it was supposed to be but he got the message and turned tail to sprint out first, soon followed by his ex-student who conjured up a protective ward, ironically trapping the assailants inside the house. He did not doubt the charm's efficacy, Pandora had always been on the opposite end of both scales to him in terms of magic and even from a young age had been more adept than most at casting shields. But the time did not call for reminiscing, it called for running.

And as they started off she explained briefly that those people had come to kill her, without delving into any more detail, before suggesting they go to the guild for safety. His first thoughts was that she couldn't possibly mean 'The Guild' and must be referring to a lesser guild than that of the assassins that she had contacts with, but instantly he knew it not to be true. People just didn't make that mistake. And of course her reference to Sir Amon confirmed that she had in fact either gone insane or got wrapped up in something far over her head. Such was the shock that hit the man, he almost fell to the floor, stumbling on her words.

"The guild? Are you insane?! They're assassins! There's assassins trying... To kill you!"

Already he was running out of breath, Felix was not built for running. But he heard her well enough over his own heavy breathing, her guarantee that the guild would be safe. Considering he had just witnessed an attempt on her life and her quick thinking had likely saved his own, coupled with years of knowing each other, trust came only too easily to the large man and he nodded as he ran, silently agreeing to follow her, although cursing his own mind as he did. He could not see this ending well.

Soon enough they stopped outside a large building with no distinguishing marks. It was more well kept than most in Delta and clearly held some significance but he'd never really paid it much mind before. It was off his route most days and he had no reason to investigate why the guards stood sentinel outside. And they cast upon him disapproving glances as he followed Pandora inside, where she was met by perhaps one of the most well known men in the city. And he spoke to her as though this were a common occurance. From what he could tell by her reaction to it, it was. And her reaction affirmed this, she only told him where the attackers were and how they were held.

The circumstances now were far stranger than Felix had ever known and it was all he could really do to stand there in the entrance hall and look around as he tried to catch his breath while the gravity of it all settled in on him. He was inside the assassins guild, after just having run from ... Assassins. While escorted, and saved, by a former pupil who he had thought was nothing other than a healer who could not possibly harbour a grudge, let alone a nemesis who would send trained killers after her.

"Hmm hmm." Clearing his throat to be noticed.

"I don't suppose anyone could tell me now why I had a knife thrown at my head, could they?" His shock was subsiding, slowly being replaced by anger, yet he kept his voice calm and steady. Someone had tried to kill his friend, and he had very nearly got in the way. And he had no idea why. He wanted answers.
