Introduction

For a period of time the Gods and Goddesses of Egypt reigned over the ancient land, living prosperously and watching over those who worshiped them every day. However like most Gods and Goddess of ancient civilizations, the belief in their existence fell through the cracks of a modern day society and sent them to lie dormant for years upon end. Unnoticed, and un-worshiped by those who would've given their lives up for everything the Gods provided.

Some Gods, took the shift of humans' minds as a blessing to a final resting place, others were infuriated by the lack of respect humans offered and tried various methods to get them to fall back in line. However, in the end, mankind shifted away from the ancient mythology of Egypt, and the Gods were lost within the ancient texts.

However, as thousands of years passed by, humans began to poke and prod among the ruins of ancient Egypt. Uncovering the mummified remains of Pharaohs and sacred tablets and artifacts, that once belonged to those of hundreds of years before. The nature of humans disrupting the natural order of life is uncanny, and disrupting so many souls from their final resting places, ultimately comes with a hefty price.

Our story follows a group of young, soon to be graduating college students on a month long study abroad trip in Egypt. Accompanied by their quirky, and often times escentric History Professor, the students happen upon an undiscovered tomb. Inside it? A dark and ancient power that has been waiting years to arise. They have gone too far into something that was meant to be untouched by human hands, and in doing so awoken the ancient Gods of Egypt.

Unfortunately, not every God is so forgiving regarding the ignorance of humanity. Each student, with finds themselves gifted by a sleeping God or Goddess, and will be given a task unlike any other. To stop the God of Chaos, Set, before he brings an end to all of the mortal realm. Suddenly faced with a destiny that is almost too big to handle the students must decide whether or not to accept their divine rights or abandon all hope as we know it.

But will a ragtag group of college co-eds, be enough to stop an all out war from starting between ancient gods?

In Greek mythology, Mount Olympus was regarded as the abode of all the Gods, and the site of the throne of Zeus. The name Olympus was used for several other mountains as well as hills, villages, and mythical personages in Greece and Asia Minor. Nearly identical to that of its counterpart on Earth, the Gods, Goddesses, and event Titans and Pantheons had painstakingly recreated this home for the gods in the Northern mountain range of mainland Olympia. All of the Olympians and those among their bloodline, as well as chosen vessels are welcome here, but mortals rarely witness the marble perfection of its halls.

This realm was once a brave and impenatrable stronghold for all Gods that reigned over the world, and the immortals that served below them. It was only when an imposing figure, by the name of Set, God of Chaos and Storms had passed through their borders, that the land fell to ruin. Dozens of Gods, Immortals, Titans, and Pantheons and those who were chosen by the Gods themselves, had fallen and failed in the harrowing combat.

The scattered remaining Hosts of the Greek Gods and fellow Immortals had fought long and hard, but their fate was encroaching quickly. In a last ditch attempt at saving those few that remained, and hadn't been corrupted by Set, were sent through a portal to somewhere safe. Somewhere, they'd be able to recollect themselves, and come to terms with what had happened in their own timeline, as Set had become victorious once more, and saw the world and timeline fall to ruin. Alongside those who had once called the Greek Hosts and Gods friends and allies, had turned on the others, aiding Set in his uspur of the Gods.

Hoping and praying, they'd find some form of help to right the wrongs that had been opposed on them, and another timeline that has been chosen by Set...

Just some quick rules to get out of the way, and then we can get to the fun part, reservations!
Quick disclosure, if you've actually read everything, in your reservation, please state that you're fully aware that this RP will contain mature themes, and that you're okay with moving forward. Here's your first chance to leave.

Mature Content - Due to the premise of this story, this shouldn't be a shock. But I am going to preface this straight away. **TRIGGER WARNING NOW**. In this role play, your characters will be subjected to mature content and if you don't think you'll be comfortable with anything along the lines of what is hinted at in the above sections, I can only advise you to leave now. This RP in short, will contain Strong language, violence, and gore. Possible mentions of drug use, abuse, possible self harm and even suicide. Your characters will be in intense and adult situations so be prepared now. If you think you can handle these subject matters, then I am more than happy to welcome you aboard.

Character Interaction - Just because your character(s) do not like each other doesn't mean they can't interact with others. If anything that's more reason to put them together and see how they interact. This role play is very character relationship driven, but I will provide direction to advance the plot. I want everyone to be included, so if you have an idea for your character and another, do it! Just because your character is a loner type doesn't mean they have to constantly be by themselves. While there is a supernatural element to this role play, it is realistic fiction so keep that in mind when writing your character's responses.

Post Expectancy - Due to this being both a story driven and character driven role play, this won't be a fast paced RP in terms of posting and getting responses up. I get that life happens, people work, and have lives outside of online. As long as literally like, one person can get a single post up just once a month, I'm not too hard pressed. But, if you think you won't be able to respond for long bursts of time, just message me and I'm sure we'll be able to make a way to narratively progress until you're able to come back without removing your character from the over all narrative.

Ghosting - I think everyone can understand the annoyance that comes with this. While we do get life happens and you may need to step away, as mentioned above. But what is not tolerated, is either sending in a CS and never completing it because one dips without a word, someone reserves a spot and never submits a CS and someone else loses out on that spot due to waiting for that CS submission. Or, when it comes to posting and someone just disapears into thin air. If you feel like you cannot respond to a post, make a character, or even just spare the time for an RP, you can always bow out whether temporarily or permanently with a simple "Hey, I don't think I can carry on with this RP because 'insert reason here', and everyone will be understanding. But dissapearing without a word is not the way to do it, and you'll be immediately removed from the RP if I need to get into contact with you more than three times and never receive a response from you for long periods of time. Plenty of my RP's in the past have died because people have ghosted. Someone ghosts for more than a month without responding to my message? Well, you'll be removed and we'll carry on without said character(s).

Reservations: This is a fixed slot/character amount RP. Meaning, the remaining students are the only characters available. Please make sure your reservations are split evenly between genders/sexes. As long as you have one male or one female character, I don't care if the other in Non-binary or what have you. As long as we make things somewhat even between each writer, I don't mind.

Charlie seemed a little overwhelmed, staring at the floor, after her interaction with Sol and Adam couldn't blame her, he knew just how effective Sol's words could be. She could sweetly and softly raise your admiration of her or violently crush your spirit, depending on her mood. He would've tried to comfort Charlie more, through some form of embrace or touch, but was slightly worried it would have the opposite effect.

A sigh came from Charlie before she nodded in response and said, “Sure. If we make it out of here alive, we’ll talk about it.” Adam smiled at her response and was a little more happier than he would like to admit. Charlie was someone he could easily relax with, something that he couldn't always do with someone else. He didn't want to lose that but he didn't know if he could provide Charlie with what she might need or want from him.

Before Adam could reply to her, his attention was drawn away by Fletcher. “It’s okay, It was my fault, I wasn’t paying attention . . .” He then turned towards Charlie and said, “. . . Sorry.” Adam then raised his eyebrows, wondering what Fletcher was apologizing for. He hadn't seen what transpired before Sol began to berate both Charlie and Fletcher but he didn't believe they would've done anything that bad. Maybe he had misjudged the situation.

Looking back towards Charlie he noticed her hand was being held by someone, it was Nancy. She seemed to be comforting her, something Adam wasn't capable of. He was frustrated with the situation between Adam and Charlie, not being able to be there for her just because of his relationship. The earlier they sorted things between them, the earlier he could give everyone what he could without worrying about the ramifications.

When tears began to fall from Charlie's eyes he became that much more annoyed at himself, for not being able to act. At this moment he wanted to forget about their issues and just hold her tight. He didn't want to see someone that meant so much to him hurting but she was hurt because of him. If he hadn't had dragged her into his mess she wouldn't be crying.

Without thought, almost instinctively, Adam approached Charlie and was about to try and comfort her when suddenly he felt a huge pressure. The pressure was focused primarily on his head but he could feel his body also growing weaker. A large ringing sound then started echoing in Adam's ears. It wasn't painful but he could feel himself slipping into unconsciousness. He tried to fight against the pressure and stay awake but he couldn't. Collapsing to the ground and losing all of his senses as he faded into darkness.


Adam slowly began to open his eyes, the pressure and feeling of weakness having now subsided. He sat up and checked himself, no injuries and his bag was still on him. Afterwards he checked his surroundings and saw that he was now in an unfamiliar room with sand covering most of the floor and symbols carved into the walls. There was some similar symbols but Adam couldn't decipher them. The room seemed to be fairly lit with natural lighting, which would mean either they had been out until morning or there was another light source.

Curiously Adam stood up and inspected the room, discovering that there was only one other person with him, Nova Morrison. They had a friendly enough relationship but you couldn't really consider them friends, more like colleagues or coworkers. He checked her to make sure she was fine, she was still unconscious but seemed to be healthy. Adam placed his bag next to her that was filled with food, water, and other supplies.

While there was sufficient lighting in the immediate area the further he travelled from the center of the room the less visible it became. Adam found a couple old torches nearby, taking one he wrapped it with some spare fabric in his bag doused with lighter fluid. He lit the makeshift torch and looked around the room to locate an exit.

After walking towards the nearest stone wall Adam walked alongside it into the darkness, trying to find an exit. He found that there were several corridors leading out of the room after walking alongside its edge. The room they were in was elliptical in shape and there were two corridors leading out on opposite ends of the longest axis. Adam considered going through one of them but didn't because he didn't want to leave Nova behind.

He soon knelt down on the ground, thinking about what to do when he suddenly heard Nova stir. She turned towards him and asked, “Fucking hell, what happened? Where are we?” Unfortunately for both of them, Adam couldn't answer her questions confidently.

Adam approached Nova, sitting next to her. He handed her the makeshift torch while he began to outline the shape of the room they were in with the sand underneath them. Explaining as best he could he began by saying, “I don't know exactly where we are but we're probably still within the tomb. How we ended up in here and separated from the others I have no idea.” He then started trying to remember what occurred right before he woke up. “Last thing I recall was feeling some pressure and then hearing a ringing in my ear. Did you experience something similar?”

Adam was worried about getting himself and Nova out of here safely but he also was worried about some of the others, specifically Sol and Charlie. He had already said earlier that he didn't want to lose Sol in here but it happened anyway. Adam knew that she was capable enough to take care of herself but on the off chance she couldn't he didn't want what he last said to her to be the final words between the two. Charlie on the other hand may actually have a harder time in the tombs and there was still things left unsaid between them.

He tried to push those thoughts out of his mind and focus on getting him and Nova out of the tomb safely and hopefully find others along the way. Motioning towards his bag he suggested to Nova, “Don't know what you're carrying but I've got enough water and food for two people. Was supposed to be for Sol but due to the circumstances I'm sure she wouldn't mind . . . I think.” Adam tried to lighten the atmosphere with a joke. He then continued saying, “Once you're ready we can look towards traveling through one of those corridors or if you wish you can inspect this room further . . . It is possible I missed something.”

“What are you doing?” Tarren heard Sol question, seeing that she was finally conscious enough to talk, but clearly still disorientated due to her having ignored their question. must have still been suffering from the side effects of, whatever it was that happened, Tarren thought to themself.

”Making sure that you’re okay.” Tarren rattled off, before finally standing back up, taking another look around the room they were in. Shining the flashlight across the walls, trying to figure out what the carvings meant. If there was any meaning.

From what Tarren knew, these carvings and images didn’t look like any Ancient Egyptian scripts they had ever seen. Almost like it was something untold nor recorded.

“Hello?” Tarren heard Sol call out, they would have done the same but, something just didn’t seem right with all of this. Tarren had found themself intently looking at a few of the indentations in the wall, letting their fingertips dip into the stone cut grooves. Only blinking back to reality when Tarren had heard Sol speak up again, ”What do you remember last?”

Tarren blinked a few more times before finally looking over at Sol, taking a few moments to think. ”Well…” Tarren started, walking around slowly to examine the room more as they continued to talk, ”I was talking to Eden as we were looking at one of the walls. It just had some imagery of some Egyptian Gods and...Then there was a ringing? And my head hurt? Then I blacked out...And then woke up here. What do you remember?” they asked as they turned back to face Sol, and walked a few steps closer to her, but kept shining the flashlight around the room. Further trying to gather their general bearings of where they were, and maybe what was going on.

Instinctively Sol stepped back from Ren. Immediately she tensed, her body conflicted between the conditioning of having avoided Ren at all costs and realizing their dire circumstances. If she were to be stranded with anyone in the tombs, she supposed she lucked out with Ren. She was always prepared, probably had an entire survival kit on hand.

Rifling around in her bag, Sol found a hair tie pulling her hair up into a messy bun at the base of her neck. Pushing the strands that framed her face, too short to be wrapped into the bun, behind her ears. Following Ren’s light she looked around their surroundings trying to find a glimmer of a way out.

“Last thing I remember I was leaving. . .” Sol started, her mind already hazy while trying to recollect. “I was in the mural room and I saw - I don’t even know. It was just this drawing and I liked. . .walked towards it?”

She shrugged, confused by whatever compulsion drew her to the strange creature in the mural. “Then I heard this ringing and. . . and Romeo - I heard Romeo he said something right before I blacked out. Next thing I knew I was here.”

Tarren silently listened as Sol spoke, but kept their eyes trailing along the artwork on the wall. Trying to decode it if at all possible. They have some basic understanding of Ancient Egyptian texts, but not as much as they would have liked. “So same thing as me then….” Ren glanced at Sol for a moment before looking at the wall once more. “I don’t suppose you’re secretly able to read any of this, right?” Tarren joked dryly. Sol gave her a blank expression, shrugging. Sure she had taken a couple anthropology classes, it was why she was on this trip - but hieroglyphics was hardly on the syllabus.

The longer they were in this place, their nerves and anxiety only grew by the second. The sinking pit of anxiety was only getting worse, and Tarren was trying to not let it show. Especially because right now, if they panicked, Sol would then also begin to panic. And that wasn’t going to happen if they could help it. Not now anyway, they had to find a way out of here. And fast.

“Hellooo!!! Romeo?? Adam?!” Sol tried yelling out again, louder this time. Her voice began to strain. It was no use, they might as well have been buried alive. Running both hands through her hair, holding her head between her hands trying to make sure it was screwed on right.

“Is this some sick escape room or something?” Sol’s voice began to have an edge of panic, looking at Ren accustorily. “Do you have anything to do with this?”

Tarren’s face entirely fell flat at the accusation suddenly thrown their way. How in the hell would I have anything to do with this?

Their eyes scanned over her for a moment before turning, “Oh yeah, totally. I somehow managed to get us both stuck in a crypt in a goddamn tomb-No I didn’t. Why the fuck would I?” Ren snapped, their voice was once again holding a tone that Sol would recognize. The somewhat confrontational one where they were already tired before anything even began.

Taking a few deep breaths as Tarren just shrugged their shoulders and walked over to the wall, placing their back against it before sliding down. Leaning the back of their head against it. “I’m not your enemy, ya know? I know we give each other shit, but right now? We need to not do this shit.” they said as Ren glanced up at Sol.

Soledad watched as Tarren sunk into the ground, recognizing that feeling of defeat. Immediately she felt a surge of guilt. It was so easy to make Ren out to be the bad guy, or at least it was easier for Sol. In reality Ren had shown Soledad much more kindness than she deserved sometimes.

“I’m sorry,” Sol said, shoulders slumping. “I know. . . I do - I’m just freaking out.”

Despite how Tarren was feeling, a small chuckle managed to escape their lips. “And you think I’m not freaking out?” Tarren said as they shook their head.

“Just cuz I don’t show it, doesn’t mean that every single part of me is okay with any of this.” Tarren looked around the room as they spoke. Trying to find something to focus on. Something to keep them grounded.

Coming over beside Ren and sliding down to sit beside her, she gave Ren a look that hopefully would read as apologetic. Ren was right. If they were going to get out they couldn’t waste any precious time or energy squabbling. “I don’t know what to do.”

With a small glance, Tarren knew the look on Sol’s face, and gave a similar look in return. “All I know is that I’m not dying in this god-damn tomb. I can’t be stuck here and just...Give up.” Tarren started, glancing at Sol for a moment again. “And neither are you. We’re gonna find a way out of here we just...We just have to..” their hands shook a bit as they spoke.

Sol gave her an expectant look, expecting Ren to spit out the answer. She knew that Ren was just as lost as she was but she still expected Ren to be the one to figure things out. Never in any situation would Sol be considered the brains of any operation. Fiddling her hands together, looking around - there was no obvious way out.

They could try digging with their hands, but she wasn’t sure how much good that would do. Besides what if the walls just ended up crumbling around them. She took Ren’s flashlight, shining it on the drawings.

“Maybe the drawings are a clue?” Sol asked, though her tone didn’t make it seem like she even believed it.

Tarren let Sol take the flashlight, eyeing her suspiciously for a moment. Looking around the chamber for a moment. “Maybe but...I don’t remember seeing any of these...Hm..” Ren pulled their backpack closer beside them, and rifled through it for a moment, retrieving a small book from one of the compartments. Tarren knew they’d need to brush up on some things, and had taken a hieroglyph book and had been studying since the trip had been announced.

Ren mindlessly flipped through a few of the pages, taking a few minutes to read as they did have difficulty with it. Mouthing out the words very softly, a technique that helped whenever they read. If they said the words aloud, it’d help them understand better. Not caring if Sol was going to mock them. Tarren had dealt with bullies for their reading impairment for years, it was nothing new.

“None of these look familiar…” Tarren finally mumbled out, looking up for a moment. “Some are close but, it’s almost like...These are...new or undocumented ‘glyph’s. Which doesn’t make any sense. I can translate some of them with this book but it's only partial. It’s weird.”

Ren looked at Sol for a moment, “It’s almost like someone took two different cultures and languages and just...Put them together. Or maybe it’s just how my brain is reading things...Since...Ya know..” Tarren said as they gestured to their head.

Sol looked over to Ren, “I literally understand none of that.”

Leaning over Ren’s shoulder to look at the book, shining the light on the walls as Ren attempted to translate - Sol felt her gaze shift occasionally to Ren as she read the passages, her lips occasionally mouthing the words. Quickly looking back away, she took a step back suddenly aware of how close she was to Ren.

“Maybe it’s some undiscovered history.” Sol sputtered, her need to stick to the topic at hand fueling her ability to theorize.

Tarren had barely noticed when Sol backed away, too absorbed in trying to read from the book, finally taking a small break when Sol spoke up. “Maybe…” they said with a shrug. Resting their head against the wall again. Looking over at Sol again for a moment, finally realizing that this was the first time, in a long time that they had actually just talked and weren’t at each other’s throat.

Ever since coming back from Spring Break, and everything that happened after that. There was a brief time where Sol had suddenly gone back to her older ways with how she treated Tarren. Sol was distanced and even at times, a bit colder. And Tarren had no idea why. Sure, certain things did happen since coming back to school. But it didn’t explain why such a shift had happened. Tarren was just left wondering what they did that had that shift in Sol again.

“I...Can…” Tarren paused for a moment, trying to figure out the right way to go about this. It was like a mutual rule that the two followed. They just wouldn’t acknowledge or talk about what happened after coming back from Brisbane. Tarren swallowed the lump in their throat, “I just want to know why, Sol.” there was another pause, “I know we refused to talk about it but...All I wanna know is why? Or more so what did I do that...That pushed you away…?”

If Sol hadn’t been just suddenly flooded with a sense of purpose and adrenaline, she would have started panicking that much she was certain of. The two of them had expertly avoided the subject and while Sol knew it hadn’t been fair to Ren, she still ended up at her door after yet another argument left Sol feeling abandoned and alone. She couldn’t talk about it because she didn’t know what to say, or how she even felt.

“Is right now really the time to talk about this?” Sol asked, squirming uncomfortably.

“And what? Keep avoiding it? Cuz you know damn well the longer we go without talking about it, the worse it will be in the end.” Tarren said with a sigh. “And now we’re here, stuck in a room with nothing to do but talk...So what’s the point in trying to avoid it any longer?” Tarren’s tone wasn’t confrontational, but more so of them genuinely asking. This wasn’t any easier for them than it could have been for Sol, and Ren knew damn well neither one wanted to do this.

She wasn’t sure what she’d been expecting, but it wasn’t that. It was ironic in a way, the only thing that could have forced Sol into discussing this with Ren would be this exact scenario and still Sol couldn’t get a word out. She didn’t know where to begin; an explanation? An apology?

“I don’t know what to say,” Sol said with a pained expression, one hand massaging her temples as she felt an incoming headache. “You know why.”

“Do I?” Tarren asked as they looked up, “Cuz the next thing I knew, you were gone and...Then it went right back to how things used to be. There’s a lot of things I could take from that, but I’ve been giving you the benefit of the doubt, and I still am.”

Tarren’s words stung, but only because Sol knew them to be true. She had shown Soledad kindness and understanding that Soledad had never experienced before, and then she discarded Ren the moment they were back. At the moment it had seemed like the only thing she could do, the only way Soledad could forget.

“Think what you will about me, I don’t care.” Was all Sol could manage. It was practically a default answer for her at this point. She was so used to people assuming things about her she’d grown to prefer it that way and as much as Ren deserved an answer there was no neat bow to tie their loose ends into.

Tarren’s eyes scanned her over again for a moment, “If you think I hate you, I don’t. I don’t think I ever can…” their voice dipped as Tarren looked back down. “As much as I would like to say that things can just go back to normal for us...What would that even be at this point? Acting like we hate each other when we don’t? Fake shit so people don’t know? It’s just exhausting..”

“I don’t act like I hate you,” Sol defended herself. “That’s just how I act.”

Tarren’s eyebrows raised on instinct, ‘Well you could have fooled me’ was all the look said.

She knew what Tarren was referring to. Sol took every opportunity to snipe at Tarren, it was innate at this point. She wasn’t the only one, she probably wasn’t even the one who deserved it the least - but regardless she didn’t deserve it. Right now though all Sol wanted to do was runaway and there was nowhere to go.

“Ugh,” She groaned, walking away from Ren even with nowhere to go. Suddenly she felt restless, pacing in what little space they had. Tarren just stayed sitting in place, their head against the wall as Sol paced, their eyes glued to the floor. They didn’t know what to say or do, if there even anything they could have done. They doubted it, they’d only make things worse than they had.

“I’m sorry - okay? I just. . .I don’t know. I freaked out. . . I needed something familiar and safe and I just didn’t know how to, or what to -” Soledad could feel herself begin to ramble, a dozen disjointed thoughts all spilling out at once.

There was a small break of silence before the sound of a sigh escaped Tarren’s lips. “I don’t want you to think that I’m angry that we hooked up last time, okay? Cuz I’m not…” there was a bit of a defeated tone in Ren’s voice. Clearly no longer in the mood for arguing. “There’s just a lot of things going on, hell, they’ve been going on for years and...It’s all just getting to be a lot, ya know?” their eyes drifted over to Sol, taking a moment to think of what they were going to say next carefully.

“I’m sorry...Okay? For just about everything. Especially for not telling you the truth…” the guilt they had been feeling for the past for months had been eating away at them, for countless reasons. But there was one thing Tarren hadn’t told Sol, and if things were to end like this, and if they were to die here, Tarren figured they may as well tell her. At this point, at least someone else would know.

“What do you mean?” Sol asked, unsure what Ren was referring to.

Tarren looked down as they took a deep breath, their hands trembling slightly. "You know how I said my mum's been sick for a really long time..?" shifting slightly where they were sitting, "...She's not just sick, Sol. I don't..." Tarren brought both of their hands to their face, as they tried to compose themself.

"If I die here...She'll spend however short she has left, wondering what happened to me. And why I wasn't there when she..." their voice broke, shoulders entirely fell forward as Tarren hugged their legs tightly to their chest as Tarren entirely broke down. There was only one other person that Tarren had ever told this to, and wherever he was now, he could be in the same position as them. Not knowing what's going on, or if they'd ever even get out of here. Tarren finally felt the smallest they had ever been, and whatever hope of getting out of here alive was slowly shrinking. They just wanted to disappear for a little while and pretend this was all a dream.

Immediately Soledad’s hardened shell crumbled, rushing to Tarren’s side as she fell into sobs. She had known that Tarren’s mother had been sick, though they never went into details and Sol wasn’t one to pry. Even then, Soledad could tell that there was more to the story - could see the way Tarren and their family looked at each other when the topic came up.

Any petty emotions were immediately pushed aside, Soledad wrapping her arms around Tarren. “I’m so sorry, Ren.”

She knew the last thing Tarren wanted was pity, but Soledad really didn’t pity her. She just wanted to protect Ren, to stop her from having to feel this pain. All she could do in that moment though was just hold Ren, and let her know that Soledad saw her pain.

"It's not your fault.." Tarren whispers softly, clearing their throat after taking a shaky breath. "I know it was an asshole move of me to not be upfront and honest with you from the start. I should have told you about her before we went there. I just...I didn't want you to feel like you owed me anything, or felt bad or if it changed your perspective on things." Tarren took a few more deep breaths, not moving from where they were.

"I just know how people can change their view of things like that...That and...There's reasons why I didn't let you meet her, cuz..." Tarren paused again. "Seeing someone like that?" Ren shook their head, "That's not the person I knew my whole life, to a point. She was the strong one for so long and then...Then she was diagnosed with ALS, and then another day everything fell on my shoulders. Even before then, I was practically raising myself. And then everything just...Went to shit five years ago and I don't know what I can do to stop it from getting worse..." Tarren finally managed to be able to glance over to Sol. "The worst part of it all? She would have adored you. You two have a lot in common and...You would have gotten along well if things were different..." their voice softened.

Tarren's eyes looked back down at the ground, "Hell, they all did...I just know if things weren't so fucked, I...I don't know. Just for once, I would like to have control of something...Ya know? Instead I'm just sitting here, watching as it all crashes and burns and I can't do shit to stop or change anything."

It was nice that Ren had so much to say because Sol was at a complete loss for words. There was nothing that Sol could say that would change their circumstances. The ironic part was how much she could relate.

"I'm sorry you've been dealing with this alone." Soledad wiped some of the lingering tears from Ren's face. "I might have a fucked up relationship with my mom but if I had to deal with losing her . . . I honestly don't know how you're holding it together."

Tarren gave a small shrug, “Because I had to.” they stated rather calmly. “For the longest time it was me and my mom...I had to be the strong one for the both of us, before things went to shit…” Tarren glanced over when they felt Sol’s hand on their face, giving it a moment, before giving a faint smile.

A look of resolution transformed Sol's face, the tears that had been fighting their way to the surface now making her eyes glimmer with hope. "We are going to get out of here. You are going to see your mom again. I promise."

Tarren looked over at Sol, and pulled her into a hug, “I’m sorry…” they managed to get out before they pulled away from the hug. “Besides...We’re both smart right? We can figure a way out of here...I think.” Tarren flashed Sol a small, genuine smile before looking around the room again.

“Well, at least one of us is.” Soledad teased, letting the implication of who she meant be unclear.

Tarren simply chuckled at the reply, shaking their head but also gave a small shrug in response.

She turned on the light of her phone, there wasn’t much battery left but she still had the backup charger so there was that. Shining the light among the walls, she began feeling at the walls trying to find a weak point or a soft spot or some give or something - anything.

“There’s got to be a way out - I mean how did we get in here? Has to be something.” Sol grumbled, unsure what she was even looking for.

Tarren had started to inspect one or the walls, their left hand gliding over the stone, "Maybe...I just-Fuck!" Tarren suddenly exclaimed, taking their hand away from the wall. Soledad jumped, shining her light over onto Ren. Looking at the walls they hadn't realized a small sharpened piece until it was too late. A small trickle of blood had slid down the wall.

"Hey uh...Mind getting the gauze out of my backpack for me?" Tarren asked, holding their hand tightly, "It should be in the main compartment, close to the top for easy access…"' looking back down, there was a small cut on their finger, it wasn't terribly deep but it would need to be bandaged to help stop the blood flow.

“Yeah - uh…” Soledad took the bag, using her flashlight to look around as she rifled inside pulling out some gauze. Setting the bag down between them she reached for Ren’s hand. “Here, you shine the light I’ll wrap you up.”

Tarren blinked a few times, having been distracted by looking at their hand. Inspecting the wound. It couldn’t have been more than a few centimeters deep, as it turned out to be a little worse than Ren initially assumed. It’d heal within a few days, maybe a week at most.

“Huh, wha-?” Tarren looked back at Sol, they were gonna take care of it themself. They had bandaged their own wounds a plethora of times before. They didn’t expect Sol to offer.

Swallowing the lump in their throat, Tarren shifted slightly, letting their hand extend to Sol as they shone the flashlight so she could see properly. “Thank you...You didn’t...You didn’t have to. But thank you..” Tarren said softly, glancing down at Sol, the faintest of a smile creeped over for a moment. “I know I can be an asshole a lot of the time, so...I don’t know what I’m trying to say..” Tarren could feel their face flush the longer they tried to keep silence from filling the air.

Sol kept her gaze lowered as she wrapped Tarren’s hand, her touch so gentle she barely let her fingers brush against Ren. It made her stomach do too many flips. She could feel Ren’s gaze on her, it made her squirm. “You’re not an asshole.”

Tarren gave a small shrug, grinning a bit for a moment before their expression fell flat.

She looked back up to Tarren, her hand now wrapped but still holding it in hers. They might have things to figure out but she was glad to be trapped with Ren, if nothing else but to have had another chance to talk. They both deserved that much.

“I’m the asshole.” Sol joked, giving Ren a soft smile.

Tarren could feel their heart beating heavily in their chest, but managed to stay composed. Simply giving Sol’s hand a gentle squeeze with their other hand. Looking back around the chamber, “We’re both assholes..” they managed to say with a small chuckle.

Looking back at the wall, Tarren’s eyebrows furrowed tightly together, retracting their hand from Sol’s as they passed by her, but not before gently squeezing her shoulder. Tarren inspected the wall where they had cut their hand, noticing the blood had slowly trailed off into what looked like a small pocket in the wall and pooled into a small basin-looking crevice, which was etched into a carving along the ‘glyphs. “You don’t think…” they began, glancing at Sol.

Tarren took their right pointer finger, dipping it into the small amount of blood and traced along the carving of the figure. Noticing how it seemed to trail off somewhere. After a few moments, Tarren retracted their hand once more, noticing the wall had started to vibrate under their hand.

There was a low rumble that shook the ground below both of their feet, and the wall seemed to almost collapse in on itself before it entirely was pulled aside by some unseen force. Sol grabbed Ren’s arm, looking around expecting the walls to come down around them.

Tarren’s eyes widened as all that was left was a small passageway, enough space for two people to walk side by side down. “You wanna continue wallowing in this room until we go mad, or do you wanna do something stupid and see where this goes?” Ren aked with a small grin, shining the flashlight down the hallway that awaited them.

Soledad stood there stunned, everything telling her whatever the fuck was going on was weird as hell and was only going to get weird from here. As much as the panic told her to stay put, that wasn’t an option. Taking a deep breath, she gripped Ren’s arm tighter. “Alright. . . let’s do this.”

Tarren grinned slightly, giving Sol a reassuring look, “Don’t worry, whatever’s awaiting us, I got you…” their eyes lingering on her a little longer than they probably should have, before Tarren turned their head back to look down the hallway, and began to to make their way forward. Wherever this led to, Tarren couldn’t help but be anxious. But there had to be a way out, right?
