((From Curious Minds on a Hazy Night))

As the group descended to the forest below the cliff, the night seemed to grow eerily dark for a couple of minutes before returning to normal. A full moon was struggling to break through the cloudy sky. If they were to look back at the cliff, they would still be able to see the light of the campfire. Around them, all was quiet and all was still besides them, or so it seemed. Even the wind as ceased for the time being as if giving them it were also giving them a moment of silence. Who are people to judge the actions of the wind?

-----

Mao strutted through the forest with no care in the world. He was still carrying the backpack which had a few spare drinks in it as well as a torch he had taken from the campfire that was made before. "I wonder how far into the forest this thing is. Hopefully this doesn't take too long." Under his breath, he said "I really need to plan things better...".

Pad walked faster to catch up to Mao, looking into the bushes as he did so. "Don't you think something's wrong. I mean, it might just be a feeling, but at this time of night I would guess that a couple of Grimm would come out".

Silus remained in a less than optimal state of mind as the quest party marched on to the forest. It had been only a few days since he arrived at Beacon and he still struggled to get used to air so far from shore. His insomnia due to coffee did not help matters either, as far he is concerned.

"So how far are we walkin' into the forest?" he asked while flexing his arm joints. "Because I've been breathin' air that tastes funny to a seadog like me."

Right after speaking his mind, Silus wondered if he just spoke without tact, inconsiderate whether his words might offend. He then hoped that none would be too irritated.

Pulling his sword out from a Beowolf, a quick flick of his wrist saw the blood staining the metal transferring to the ground. With a quick sheath, he was about to start walking away, when he heard faint noises in the distance. "Hm?" he questioned the air, looking around to determine where the sounds were coming from. Voices. Children's voices. Well, not necessarily children, but certainly young enough that being out this late in this forest was not the brightest of ideas. Instantly slinking up to a tree, concealing his sound and any sight of him, Tsuteto perked his ears and began to eavesdrop.

Mao was unable to decipher was the latter part of Silus' message meant as he didn't hang around fishermen, or whatever he was, too often. "I, for one, think you guys are letting the night get to you or something. Listening in on the forest again, he added "But I will agree that it is strange that we haven't seen any yet. Maybe they are more afraid of the dark than people are". The second part was said in jest. "And I don't actually know how far we are walking, Silus. We are supposed to be looking for the thing, after all, though I hope it doesn't take too terribly long." He moved the torch side to side for a moment to see into the brush on their sides, but he didn't catch any glimpses of anything so he continued straight.

Kalmora downed the last of the contents of the jar he had been given. Wiping his lips with the back of his left hand. He had put his weapon back into his coat for the journey.

"You know, Maybe my chainsaw-bit scared all the Grimm away from the general area? That baby is pretty nasty." Kalmora joked. He knew that Grimm couldn't possibly be afraid of a little Ol' chainsaw.

Getting himself serious. Kalmora made a comment. "Living near the Grimm is pretty risky...I mean, If this Manor is around, We'll be able to see clues of its presence...Even if no ones been in it for years theres going to be signs of humans living in the area...Piles of cut wood left abandoned...marked trees, old paths...Just depends on the owners too....I know my family cleared large chunks of trees away from the area's they lived in..." Kalmora found himself talking about his family...Not something he wanted so he pulled back from the conversation and looked off to the side.

"That little chainsaw, scaring grimm away, it's more likely that whacking them with a stick would send them running". Pad smiled at the thought of kalmora chasing a creature of Grimm, brandishing a stick and running after it.

"How much talking can distract you from your original task" pad thought, trudging forwards into the ever depressing night in the emerald forest.

Devlin follows the group, trailing many feet behind the main group. He still sips slowly from his jar.
"I don't think anyone will make it out alive."
At the thought, a disturbing grin casts itself over Devlin's face.

Mao chuckled at Pad's comment while ignoring Devlin's. "If only if it were the case that that was all it did take." While his voice sounded like he was having fun, his face said otherwise. He continued swaying the torch back and forth, occasionally tapping it onto a tree to get rid of the white tip that was beginning to form. Ash dropped to the ground, still glowing somewhat brightly.

-----

The overcast grew thicker, the forest floor growing ever darker. Had it not been for the torch, they would probably be a good as dead. Off in the far distance, the howling of a beowolf could be heard which was followed by another one, but as the second one neared its end, it was suddenly cut off. Even to the untrained ear, the difference between the two was noticeable. To those with sharp ears and to those that were experienced with regards to animal calls, they would know that the beowolf had been interrupted. Following the sudden cut off of the howl, a ever so slight cracking sounds, that of wood breaking, could be heard ahead of the party.

Tsuteto continued to follow from the side, keeping his presence hidden. The beowolf howls startled him none, just more or less why they kept moving forward. Especially their leader, who's face seemed to be becoming more and more distorted as they journeyed on. "Just turn back," he hardly whispered, more or less just mouthing the words to himself.

Hiawatha trudged on silently, drinking from the jar deeply. The new one seemed reckless, almost idiotic. He would make good bait. He slowed down his pace and slipped to the back of the group. "What is this stuff anyway?". As the fog thickened, Hiawatha noticed an extra presence. Was he being paranoid? The Beowolf howls weren't helping... What were killing beowolves in the middle of the night?

The howls were nothing Silus had ever heard in his life thus far. He had heard of stray dogs howling, but nothing like this. Whatever let out that howl, it was certainly a sign for him to start staying his guard up.

"What in the Deep Locker was that?" he blurted while raising his harpoon arm at the ready as his knee-jerk reaction. "That was certainly no stray dog!"

Silus may had bagged a handful of marine Grimm back in Ahab's Bay, but he had yet to claim a land dweller as a trophy. And he certainly couldn't botch his first now, of all times.

Kalmora looked ahead at the sound of wood breaking. He placed the empty jar away in his coat and began to walk abit faster. " Hey, Mao? Why are we looking at night, and not the day time anyway? Wouldn't it be easier to spot the place in the day? I mean, if its abandoned it's not like theres going to be a lit-fire waiting for us...and it's alot easier to fight Grimm in the daylight...We could be out here all night, and still not find the place..."

Granted, It wasn't fun in the daylight. Night time shenanigans was alot more fun sounding! But it meant it was going to take a long time to find what they are looking for...Which for an impatient person like Kalmora wasn't exactly exciting to think about the length of time they'd be searching...

If anyone were watching Mao, they would have noticed that his only reaction to the noises was the squinting of his eyes."This stuff is just red sap with some stuff to decrease its viscosity. Only learned how to do it recently!" He smirked slightly. "Just the usual stuff that happens at night, Silus. And we are searching at night to keep our whereabouts hidden. We would probably get in quite a bit of trouble if the school found out this, especially considering how deep we may go. I'd rather not take the risk."

-----

Despite the seemingly short amount of time they have been travelling, they were actually quite a ways away from the Cliffs. After a few more minutes, the tree density would drop noticeably until they came upon a clearing. The clearing was relatively narrow compared to its length (a little over half a mile), and at the far end of the clearing was what appeared to be a large building. Probably the manor.

-----

"Quite a bit of distance out, ain't it." He began walking into the clearing towards the building.

Silus's eyes widened upon the party's discovery of the building at the clearing and muttered "Well...would ya look at that..."

He lightly snorted and remarked "I didn't think we'd find this manor so easily. Well, the howling aside."

"Let's have a look inside," he continued, feeling a small sense of accomplishment. "We can have a drink after this quest, on me."

As they came to the clearing, Tsuteto stopped at the edge of the forest as well, keeping his cover and being quite a few paces from them to the right. "They're stupid if they're going to-" he began to think, watching them, and then watching Mao walk out, "... walk out there. They're open to any amount of Beowolves!"

Thinking for a quick second, he then had an idea. "Alright, they want something spooky? Here it is!" With a kick of his leg, and a small grimace from a tinge of pain of a wound the night previous, he booked it at his teleporting like speeds behind the group, keeping cover behind a tree. Lowering his voice and adding some crackle to it, giving a demonic impression, he then called out, loud enough for the forward most person to it, "Geeet awaaaaay!" He then kicked with his speed again, booking it this time onwards, ending several paces to their left, so that no one would see him, and wouldn't find him if they looked.

Hiawatha walked on...

"Geeet awaayyyyyyyy!"

Tensed, Hiawatha halted, trying to source out the location of the voice. It seemed to originate from the trees rather than the mansion. "Who goes there?" Hiawatha shouted, drawing his blade. Could this mansion really be haunted? Or is some punk trying to mess with the quest? Probably. Hiawatha slowly crept back into the mist. He would have to out-scare the punks

Caught off guard, Mao jumped forward, tossing away the torch in the process. "Who what that?!" At best, he could tell that it wasn't someone from his group. He looked around, but it was much more difficult to see now that the torch was on the ground. Under his breath, his swore seeing as someone else was out here with them now.

-----

If the group was paying attention, they would notice that the torch was burning slightly brighter now as it had landed on some tinder. However, even that wouldn't have helped much. The shadows of the trees now seemed much larger, much more imposing. It was almost as if the trees were closing in on them. They could no longer see as deep in the forest, after all, their light source currently on the ground.

Again, another howl would echo through from the left of the forest (facing the manor) followed by a few more scattered to the right and behind them. Again, a couple of them were silenced prematurely. Following the silence, the faint thudding could be felt through the ground. However, from where would be incredibly difficult to determine.

"Geeet awaaaaay!"

Silus jolted upon hearing the haunting voice. Wait, he thought as he recomposed himself. did that voice even originate from the building's direction?

Regardless, the voice startled most of, if not the whole party that Mao unintentionally tossed the torch to the ground. A chill ran down Silus's spine as he watched the party's sole light source fall, risking them to darkness.

Oh no! he thought. I'll be night blind in these woods without that torch!

Fortunately for him, the drop didn't extinguish the torch. The area illuminated had shrunk to perhaps two thirds, granted, but the torch still gave light.

Watching the torch hit the ground, Tsuteto slapped his hand to his face, silently, and shook his head. "I swear, if they burn this place down," he thought begrudgingly, with an imagination of fire everywhere, them in the midst of it, and the leader saying, "Woe is us for our stupidity!"

Looking across the clearing, he noticed the building that they had originally seen, and seemingly were about to approach. It looked like it was once quite a beautiful building, but was probably run down now with Grimm everywhere. Before he could inspect it more, he heard the short cuttings of Beowolf screams in the distance, only confirmed by an even fainter thud against the ground. "Hmm," he softly mummed to himself, putting his hand to his chin, lowering his head, which brought up the bottom of silver hair ever so slightly. "A hunter? At this time of night?" Shaking his head for a second time, observed the children again, wondering what might they do next. He wouldn't be able to do a voice thing again; they'd catch on quick. That torch though....

Thinking again, he started plotting ways of possibly putting it out, thus forcing them to trek back. Then again, they might just run on to the building like scared dogs if that happened.
