    Re: In Cold Storage (River and Genevieve)

    Gen regarded the chains and the non-existent ceiling they hung from. Just darkness up there. Nothing visible. Suddenly, Genevieve had a strange thought. It was a feeling as though she had once had wings, and had been able to soar to grand heights, and now she felt the loss of those wings. It must have been a dream she once had, for there was no other explanation for it.

    "I can climb, yeah, but I don't know for how long. I'm game for it if you are though." She nodded to River.

      "Well alright then." River says, chuckling at her companion's unintentional pun before hoisting herself up on one of the chains and starting to climb upwards. She was more confident of her ability, and hoped to find the top of these chains, to see how high they can get to avoid anything that may be below. She was also curious how closely this place followed the laws of common sense, once again. Surely anybody to have built this wouldn't make it too high, the costs to keep it cold would be that much greater...

        Choosing a chain within arm's length of River, Genevieve catapulted herself up onto the large chunk of meat, griping the chain and then tightly clinging to it. She crisscrossed her legs beneath her for more support and began to pull herself upwards into the darkness.

          Scaling the chains, to see where they lead in the obscuring darkness about them, the athletic duo would find that...although suspended far higher than normal, perhaps...eight feet, ten feet or so roughly, the chains don't seem to lead anywhere really, save for a concrete ceiling... in which the chains seem to be "melted into", oddly enough. Though as the two spend time hanging from the metallic bindings by which slabs of meat were suspended...they notice another candle extinguishing, the one to the right of the first that had been inexplicably blown out.

            River spent a few seconds examining the tops on the chains. It looked to her like the cement had dried with the chain already embedded in it, which made sense to her, but still seemed off. "At least we know they should hold our weight." She commented, turning to where Gen was climbing and noticing the second candle sputtering out. "Look." She said, nodding her head back in that direction. "Must be something in that direction. Keep close to the tops of the chains, that will keep them from swaying as much and giving us away." §he advised, and doing the same herself, moving fairly slowly to make sure she didn't rattle the chains as well.

              Gen was unsure about this. They were high up, and moving from chain to chain up here would be difficult and slow-going. Still, if it was difficult for their light forms to get up here to the top, it would be even more difficult for heavier, bulkier enemies to climb up here. Gen was also certain that there must be some sort of ventilation system installed to keep this room so cool, if indeed it was kept this temperature by a real system and not the devilish witchery that seemed to abound in this so-called reality.

              Picking east has her direction, Gen began to grip her way between chains, in the same manner as River, hoping thing this wouldn't get too difficult.

                Sticking to the chains as they made their way across the chilling room towards the direction of faded light, doing their best to keep the noise they made minimal, the two bare maidens would find the light from the candles becoming dimmer and dimmer as they proceeded...such that their surroundings became vague. As the light diminished, and the darkness intensified however...their other senses becoming more honed so as to account for such, they would become privy to a sound best described as heavy breathing coming from the direction they were heading towards...Panting, accompanied by nonsensical mumbling, as if there was perhaps someone, or something in the direction they were headed towards. Was the path of faded light truly the best decision?...

                  River stopped when she heard the breathing, waving silently to get Genevieve's attention. She then proceeded to put her finger to her lips to indicate silence, then started pantomiming her side of the conversation. She went through motions of breathing heavily, then pointed down where the sound was coming from. Then she pointed in the direction they were moving, towards the sound, then back the way they had came, ending with a shrug. it was hopefully apparent river wanted to know if gen thought they should head back, or try to sneak around whatever was making the breathing and muttering sounds.

                    Gen heard it as well. It didn't sound good, whatever it was. The darkness closing around them was making it difficult to see the chains in front of them. She nodded her head, motioning to River that yes, she did want to choose another direction.

                    ((Can I do an intuition roll of some sort, to see if Gen notices or has a gut instinct about what to do in this situation?))
