"Why give away money?" Smiles asked back cryptically. He paused for a moment, his arms crossed defiantly, then he rolled his eyes before staring directly at Emerald's. A few seconds passed before suddenly Emerald felt as if water was being poured into his head for a brief moment.

Somehow in his mind he now has a clear understanding that so long as they two parties are in eye contact, one merely needs to concentrate on the info and the exchange can be made. Also, he had some rice sludge on his chin.

Once getting the message, Emerald swipes the stuff off his chin thinking, Ugh, messy eater. Hey! Afterwards, Emerald smirks and says, "Perfect. Thanks for the answer." Stepping away, Emerald walks back to the wall he had been sitting at before, and sits down once again. He goes back to his plan of escape.

"How are you liking the new home?" a voice came from outside of the cell. Beyond the bars, three people were standing. One was another guard like the one that escorted Smiles out earlier except he had five spades on his rank patch. It looked like he is escorting two other inmates.

One was a female faunus woman. She had ash colored hair and long ears. Her attire was an open vest over a dress shirt and skirt with nylon stockings and a pair of low cut boots. She had a cool beauty sort of face and piercing sapphire eyes.

The other was a tall human man. He wore an old style tuxedo set with striped pants and long sparrow tails. In his hand he was carrying a walking cane with an ornament crystal chess piece on top in the shape of a king. His top hat was festive to say the least, with a royal flush of cards stuck to one side and two flowers, white roses, sprouting festive ribbons that hang limply off to the side with bumblebees hanging on each end.

The man was tipping his hat to the people inside with a pleasant smile on his face as if greeting neighbors.

"Get going!"the guard snapped at him, prodding him in the back with the point of his short sword.

"Oh come now, can't we kill some time?" the man smiled, turning his head back to the guard.

"We don't have time," the guard growled.

"Don't have time for what?" the man asked.

"For you to talk to some new kids," the guard answered.

"What about it?"

"We don't have time!"

"Don't have time for what?"

While the comedic tuxedo man distracted the guard, his eyes glanced over at the woman before proceeding to annoy and confuse the guard. The faunus woman nodded and looked into the cell. Her expression was blank, but you can tell that her eyes were looking closely at each and every one of them.

"It'll be alright," she whispered softly to them. "Just keep strong. Don't lose your way."

"Who's distracting you?" the man asked.

"You!" the guard screamed.

"What about me?"

"You're distracting me!"

"From what?"

"The match!"

"What about it?"

"You have to be there!"

"Be where?"

"The arena!"

"What about it?"

Tiru rolled his eyes, sighing. On any other day, I would find this amusing. Seriously, they're like those two comedians. Abisus and Costarelli? Wait... That can't be right... Tiru chuckled as he thought back to one of the comedic duo's acts, snapping back into reality as he heard the faunus offer a few encouraging words. It will be alright... "I need to get into that arena..." Tiru thought aloud, only realizing that he had spoken a few seconds after he did so. Oh... Shit. I hope the guard didn't hear that.

Having finished the bowl of whatever, Aurelia found a spot on a wall, set herself down, and relaxed. Her cellmates seemed to have finally calmed down and now she was able to think. So first, let's look through the information we have. We are in the Death Arena, nobody has yet to escape, and information is a currency that is pretty valuable. Smiles did say that the precautions were flawless which could imply that they aren't perfect. Flawless and perfect are similar enough that people use them interchangeably, though. While it would be good to keep an eye on things, this probably won't be too helpful. Next is the information market. By linking eyes, the devices on our temples allow us to trade information. A filter in the device prevents false information from being transferred. Could we perhaps send information that is technically true but not necessarily true? Her thoughts froze for a second. If that's the case, then couldn't we-. Aurelia paused again, an interesting idea having popped into her head.

It was then that a small group of people stopped in front of the cell. A man in the tuxedo seemed to be playing around with the guard when the woman was with them whispered to the group. Does she...know of our situation? Could she possibly be an ally? Aurelia said nothing and was instead looking at the woman with curious eyes. She wondered if the rest of the prisoners knew of their existence as well.

Alicia listened carefully to Jacob's group -whom she had personally dubbed 'The Pack' at this point- and their observations of their surroundings. Interesting how acute their sense of smell was, as Alicia had no such ability. However, the same could be said about her acute hearing and silent navigation in the dark, but comparisons didn't really matter much in the current situation. She doubted that stealth would be much use in a closed arena, after all.

The coming of another pair of prisoners, however, was surprising enough for her to lift her eyes from her preening and look the faunus woman straight in the eyes as she gave them a few words of encuragement. Alicia nodded once to the woman, a curt, yet respectful inclination of the head, and her sharp eyes watched the pair until they were out of sight and earshot.

Once they were gone, she looked back to her feathers once more, listening to everything she could now, instead of solely focusing on 'The Pack'. Knowledge was important, after all, even when it wasn't currency.

Matthias watched with amusement as Tiru and Jacob showcased their acute smelling. Now is that sharp sense of smell a blessing or a curse? The thought caused him to smirk. However, he snapped back into reality as the new prisoners passed by. The act these two put on was even more entertaining. Looks like the basic guards here aren't too bright, he observed. The message relayed by the woman meant little to Matthias. It was either cryptic or simply just encouragement; either way it was useless to him.

"Well, you two," he finally whispered, looking at Tiru and Jacob. "I'm not exactly worth your time here. My nose isn't as, uh, 'gifted.'" If information is truly important, then it might be best to keep my hearing a secret. With that, he made his way over towards Nero and plopped down beside him. "So, Popeye, were you always this huge or do you just eat your vegetables?" he asked in a smart-ass tone, hardly expecting a response.

Nero broke away from his intense concentration and mental combat analysis when Matthias asked him why he was so large. Nero frowned a little bit and debated whether or not to grace that insolent question with an answer. He wasn't really that big. Well, maybe he was, compared to other students, but where he came from, he was merely average in size. "When for the overwhelming majority of your life, you rot in a prison with nothing to do but lift weights and fight other inmates in gladiator matches, it's hard not to get large," he answered. With that, he returned his concentration to his previous task.

Tiru let out an audible sigh of relief as the guard passed, then leaned against the wall closest to him (which would have been to the woman's right), reflecting on what the woman said. Hmm... Nobody in their right mind would go through that much trouble just to offer words of encouragement. Maybe it's a riddle of some sort? A riddle hidden beneath what seems to be words of encouragement? It'll be alright... Just keep strong... Don't lose your way... Tiru shook his head, pounding a fist on the wall he was leaning on. Riddle or not, I can't drain the collar without my semblance. I need to get into that arena.

Jacob sighed, apparently these wolves weren't as in depth with their animal side, domesticated, a shame but beyond their control. He gritted his teeth and set himself down against one of the cell walls, silently brooding, he almost completely ignored the two warriors as they were led past the cell. His ears twitched as they received a few brief words of encouragement before the pair were forced to move on.

Emerald watches the comedic act with little humor. He was understanding that the prisoner creating the act was distracting for something, but wasn't sure what until the woman spoke up. When hearing her words of encouragement he thought, A possible ally? Two? They could be just trying to use us. Really, what will they gain from encouraging people that aren't even in their cell. Trusting people is what got us in trouble back in Wonderland. Let's avoid them! May I remind you who signed us up for that damn experiment? Uh, um, uh, cough, uh, excuse me. Who cares! They're just more people to fight! I love this place! The food isn't too good. Wait. You're actually dissing food? I said it wasn't too good. I didn't say it was awful. Which it is. Stop it. All of you. You're rambling in my head. Emerald continued pondering his (and possibly the others') escape while wondering if they'd get a view of the next fight like they did for Smile's fight.

"She probably has good reason..." said Tiru, turning his head to Smiles. "I get the feeling that most wouldn't expect any of us to last very long out there." he stated, shaking his head. "Of course, we just have to prove them wrong." Okay. I get into the arena, and start draining the collar. I need to be discreet... Can't tip anyone off to what I am doing. But where is all that excess power going to go? If I don't get rid of it, I'm in a world of hurt... And how will I disable the others' collars? I can't just expel the energy into the ground. Almost everything that I have seen of this compound is made of conductive metals. I don't want to end up killing someone on accident... Tiru sighed as he continued thinking, trying to think of a way to escape.

Some time has passed and the panels in the back wall slid apart and revealed the tv screen again. It turned on by itself and once again everybody saw the arena and a similar intro to the last one.

Jacob snarled and punched the wall, the impact echoing around the cell
"I hate all this waiting" he growled " I'd rather get into the arena and have done with it!" He gritted his teeth, deciding on perusing his plan from earlier, and draining the collar's power cell in an effort to escape. He drew Jernulv and propped the axe up against the wall he had previously been leaning on, before walking over towards the bars. "Let's see how much juice I can take" he grunted, lifting his boot off the ground and planting a hard kick on the bars, the heat from the metal singed the rubber on the sole of his boot, small whisps of steam curled around the toecap as he threw another hard kick.

Tiru patiently watched the fight, analyzing the arena as well as the combatants. Okay... That hatter guy is unkillable. Kinda gives an outlying advantage in a death battle. I know nothing of the Hare... Other than her being the Hatter's partner and having somewhat of a kind soul... or the closest one could get in a house of death. I really hope I never have to go against any of them. he thought as the match ended. Then Jacob started yelling. Tiru turned toward the Alpha wolf as he kicked the bars, attempting to prompt the organizers to shock him. Rubber soled boots. Discharging electricity into the ground might not affect him. "Alpha, that ain't the best move. You saw what happened to the others." he said, debating with himself whether or not to pull him away from the bars. He didn't want to incur the wrath of the directors until after he had disabled his own collar.

"I know what I'm doing" Jacob said, in a hushed tone and an accompanying wink, before pounding the bars with his boot, striking it again every few seconds, trying to draw the attention of their captors. What sort of game were they playing here?

The bars were seering hot, enough to starts melting the rubber on Jacob's boots as he kicked at it, filling the room with a disgusting smell.

"Ugh! Burning rubber," Smiles gagged, lurching over, covering his nose. "Stop that you idiot! By god, you kids are just stupid!"

"If you're so clever then why haven't you escaped?" Jacob growled, switching foot and recommencing his assault on the bars. Another impact caused them to judder slightly under the impact, an improvement over his first strike. Not the intention of his tactic, but a present side effect. Why wasn't he being shocked? He was doing worse than Alicia or Matthias and yet the organizers were leaving him unharmed.

The bars didn't actually jutter, it was just the clanging of a boot against metal.

"Because it is impossible you idiot!" Smile stated. "You think you're the first bunch who want to escape this hell hole? What are you trying to do? Get shocked on purpose? First off, kicking the bars isn't provoking anybody to do anything and second you're an idiot. What did I just tell you all about assuming? Information is power here, not assumption. So why don't you just stop and take a moment to actually think!"

Jacob ceased his assault, wiping a few beads of sweat from his brow, his proximity to the bars was not ideal based on his heat tolerance, he preferred the cold. He ran a hand through his hair before turning to Smiles
"A trade then, information about myself in exchange for knowledge on the others who tried to escape and what they attempted."

Jacob shrugged
"The most valuable info I have, my weaknesses, plus the guy a few cells down has a leg injury that he's not fully recovered from." There was a pause as Jacob folded his arms across his chest "so will information on my weakness buy the information I'm after?"

Jacob could suddenly hear a small beep.

"Alright," Smiles murmured. "I'll exchange that for what I know of past attempts to escape."

A beep sounded from Smile's temple.

"The devices have registered the agreement," Smile stated. "Once we lock eyes, then it'll be considered a finalization and the agreed trade will commence without fail. Think carefully on this now kid. There's no going back."

Jacob gestured to their cellmates
"If it helps to get them out of here, it's worth it" he fixed his eyes on Smiles. This was probably going to be his death sentence, he didn't know Smiles, and didn't completely trust him. For all Jacob knew he could sell the information to all of the other prisoners and then he'd be left wide open in the arena. He knew what he was doing was stupid, he only really knew one of his cellmates, and she was a White Fang. Yet here he was, painting a target on his back for the world to see, in the hopes that he might help a group of strangers escape this sick game. "Do it" Jacob grunted.

The two locked eyes and the information was shared between them instantly. Now Smiles new Jacob's every weakness.

At the same time, Jacob now knew all at once multiple attempts to escapes and how they all failed.

Aurelia would have stepped in to stop the trade, but she had been busy processing what information they had and only caught the exchange right as it ended. Past methods of escape attempts for all your weaknesses? What are you, crazy? She said nothing aloud as it was his own information and she really had no right to tell him how he should use it, but Aurelia was still upset about the whole matter.

With a sigh, Aurelia simply said, "Remember that all the attempts that you now know of ended in failure." Though I suppose it would be worth it to see how close some got to freedom.
