Penny put a hand on the tube, feeling the soft thrumming of power surging through. “Does it ever feel strange, looking upon this and realizing it’s, well, you?”

"Not very often, but I do sometimes still find it weird. To think that all of this is designed to contain a human mind... it really is strange."

"Gentlemen, I can assure you that this will not be a repeat of the Opium Wars, but I do understand with your concerns. I do however believer that our combined prowess in the pharmaceutical industry can aid in mitigating the fatal effects of an otherwise beneficial drug that serves only to increase one's cognitive and physical abilities." Spyros said after sipping his wine. "I am however glad that you appear receptive to Cymiopolitan aid in your war, even it will be a secretive operation. As to how we even knew about your conflict, lets just say your embassy didn't do a good job looking for listening bugs."

It would appear that the Chinese delegation was tired from their journey and would need to sleep on it. After thanking everyone for their time, Prime Minister Metaxas requested Governor Barbaro guide the Crown Prince and his friends to their sleeping chambers in the Palace's Guest Wing. An agreement is to be made the following day.

The group slept the night away as they mulled over the offer some more. Once morning came, the delegations reconvened. The Crown Prince accepted their offers, and was once again happy with one of their longest lasting allies.

“It is strange, perhaps, but I’ve learned that we should make do with what we have...and I think you’re capable of doing much more than your human self could do...”

"Yep, I've made the best out of the situation I was put in, or at least I hope so. Oh, if those bastards could see me now..."

Penny put a hand on Heidrun’s shoulder. I have your back, just like you have mine.”

Ventus Prime wrote:Raphtalia managed to raise her shield just in time, blocking her blow. “You’re pretty good Hiei...you’d give my master a run for his money even in his younger years.”

Hiei stomped both of her high heeled feet into the ground and launched herself in a backflip behind Raph and swung her left sword once she landedd

Raphtalia sighed when she felt the sword near her neck. “Okay...I admit I wasn’t expecting that one...”

She puts her hands on her hips. “Well that won’t do. You are a proper lady and should be treated as such. Especially if you’re the leader of this nation.”

Kristian answered her inquiry as the excavation site came into view. It truly was quite the sight.

"...I don't feel like any part of me is missing, no. Why do you ask?"

By the time he had said that the both of them would already be standing at the base of the Excavation site, now beginning to be lead down towards the apparent object being carved out of the ground, to him it looked as if a Bunker of sorts military in origin based on the look of it's entrance alone and as they progressed further around them would be surrounded by several other forms and types of Aszaryin life.

With the most common of these being small insectoid type creatures seeming to be no taller than around three feet, preforming various tasks and actions without interruption or speech other than a few voice beyond their own the entire site would be strangely quite that was before Cezis would begin to speak, leading him down towards the entrance of the bunker as she would do so;

    | " I see now, perhaps it is just me, for a reason I still do not know it feels as if I have been here and yet I have no recollection, without me I don't think Xeosa might've found this thing.. it looks like a nest of sorts but I do not recall there being any other nests beyond the ones connected by the tunnels nor was it made by us." |

Hiei lowered her swords and walked back over to in front of Raph and bowed reverently. "It's interesting, dual swords at least. I usually use a staff myself." Hiei said. "You are not injured are you?" Hiei looked over Raph to make sure that she was not harmed or injured. "I suppose that duel didnt help much considering i didnt mimick Erwin's style much at all."

“Quite the contrary, it gave me things to consider the next time I do duel him. Honestly, I’m more impressed you can fight in those heels.”

Ventus Prime wrote:She puts her hands on her hips. “Well that won’t do. You are a proper lady and should be treated as such. Especially if you’re the leader of this nation.”

"Heh, alright then. Never thought of myself like that, but perhaps..."

Hiei looked down at her open toe red strappy heels and wiggled her toes. "what do you mean? I dont feel pain or discomfort." Hiei looked up again cocking her head slightly "Did you want them or something?" Hiei had likely misunderstood 'girl talk' for a moment. "Oh, this is what Momo calls 'girl talk' where girls talk about each others shoes or their hair or their outfit no?" Hiei had perhaps been overthinking this.

“Of course to be fair...I don’t have such lodgings but I am just a construct.”

“Uh...I just mean cause if they broke at the worst time you’d be off-balance. Though I don’t know if that even works with androids...”

"Id likely have taken them off or calibrated myself to compensate for the lack of heel. Though im glad they didnt break. Momo says i look elegant and ladylike" Hiei said

“I agree. I do admit there is a certain...elegance with fighting with heels, though I prefer to be flat-footed.”

Ventus Prime wrote:“I agree. I do admit there is a certain...elegance with fighting with heels, though I prefer to be flat-footed.”

"Heels are not my preferred footwear for fighting. I wear them because they seem to go well with my outfit. Im sure that if given the chance before hand i wouldve likely duelled you barefoot"

“Ah so that’s when you get serious.” Raphtalia then bowed in thanks. “In all seriousness, I thank you for taking the time to teach me all this, Hiei.”

*Hiei bowed reverently* "Of course Lady Iwatani. I hope that we can meet up more frequently so i can better teach you what youll need to fight and perhaps best Erwin in what i assume will be a third fight in the future.

Aszaryin wrote:As the new group of Scientists would begin to approach both the Leader and Asun the two of them would look over them, making sure in which they carried no weaponry of any sort, once confirmed to be cleared of weapons The leader would begin to motion for them to follow, heading through the clearing of the forest, in the direction of the closet and most tallest spire.

The trip itself wouldn't take long, and soon enough most of all of them would emerge on the otherside of the forest, from there the leader would motion to Asun seeming to send him off on his way down a dirt pathway before continuing to lead the group further towards and eventually into the spire, once inside the interior of the spire would he quite large and seeming to stretch on for several meters below the surface and above them, to much of their surprise the leader would lead them upwards, until eventually reaching a strange black door

    | From here the leader would point towards the door more specifically towards a series of pictographs detailing their actions they would he asked to do, many of these detailed them kneeling before something larger, this was clearly a different time as the humans seen held basic projectile weaponry |

    | When Prepared they would have to motion to the leader to open the door as he would stand there awaiting their signal, seeming to be on their own past that point. |

The Byzantines look at the door, and hesitate. They had no idea what they were getting themselves into here, and it might not have been good.
Then again, they'd come so far at this point, it was probably impossible to stop at this point.

After a moment of waiting, the Byzantines gesture for the leader to open the door.
