So, maybe she had not burned all of her bridges, yet. Sailor Aegle kissed her palm and blew healing energy toward the senshi of death and disease. Sailor Xibalba visibly relaxed and closed her eyes as the energy washed over her and made her feel stronger. After the feeling had passed, she opened her eyes and nodded her head in appreciation, "thanks." Sailor Xibalba was surprised that Sailor Aegle went through with the healing, but she wasn't about to voice that surprise and appear ungrateful. She'd probably need to be healed again if recent events were any indication of what the future might hold. 

And then, the group followed Sailor Baster further into the village. The heat increased, but Sailor Xibalba felt moderately comfortable. It was the smell and the general feeling of the air that bothered her. She knew that smell. It was the smell of death. 

As they neared the pile, it became plainly obvious to the senshi of death and disease exactly what made the pile. She stopped with the group and looked at the pile from the bottom to the top, or at least the furthest up she could reasonably see. Death she was familiar with, and she was not unfamiliar with the task of gathering and burying fallen warriors. But, never on this scale. She looked to the others in the group and knew that none would be comfortable with what she was about to do next, but someone probably needed to take a peek. 

She covered her mouth with a bit of her uniform and cautiously approached the pile to take a closer look. She didn't mind, too much, standing right next to it if they could get more information. 

"I don't know if it or they are still here, but something gathered these bodies." She paused a moment and actively resisted the urge to gag. Ugh, you never got used to the smell and trying, but failing to burn the bodies like this only made it worse. "The fire is still burning strong in the village. I'd hazard a guess whatever did this isn't far off, but is obviously out of range of your equipment."

Or... maybe something was really close and couldn't be picked up by the equipment? Like... She looked upwards. Well, she assumed something alive at the top of the pile was making that noise.

As they got closer to the dark mound, she slowly realized what it was from the shape of corpses and attempted to shield Nocturnus, but it was too late. The smaller senshi had seen it. Andromeda tightened her grip on the girl's hand, staying close to her. This wasn't an image that anyone as young as her should ever see. This wasn't an image that anyone should ever see in their lives. She had to look away, the sight and the smell and the heat almost overwhelming her.

She wanted to get out of here.

The sound was coming from atop the pile, and when Chalybs asked if they should go up there, she knew there was no way they were going to climb this.

She attempted to summon her Sailor Wings, and, if successful, she would let Nocturnus go briefly to fly up to the top of the pile and find the source of the sound.

Bodies. Cadavers. Corpses.

If it weren't for Xibalba's observation, Tartarus would not have learned the origin of the unpleasant odor. She covered her mouth, silently willing herself to stay strong and retain her composure. If she could just bite back the nausea, there could be a reason to find for this horrific sight.

Chalybs had been kind enough to enumerate the differences in Dorothea's appearance. At the conference, she was a pale young lady with blue eyes and flowing hair of a metallic, silvery coloration. That kind of sudden physical change was impossible! What SAM had just described to Tartarus was her original flesh and blood body, which had been interred to cryostasis by her guardians. It should have been the android form that appeared in this bizarre land!

Tartarus drew closer to Xibalba, readying her phase rifle. "I don't know if I can trust what we are seeing.. not anymore."

As she looked up, all she could was was seemingly endless bodies stacked so high whatever was wailing could not be seen from ground level. As the others approached, they came to the same realization as she and hearing Nocturnus's tiny voice made her stomach churn even more. How horrible for her to have to see this, for all of them for that matter.

"I'm not sure..." answering SAM's question, "The magic energy I'm sensing, it continues on through the town past here. Do you think what gathered the bodies is up there?"

Just what was this energy she was feeling and where was it leading them too? Ari closed her eyes, concentrating once again on the source she felt, even harder than the first time. Maybe she could make sense of what she was feeling. Though, she felt little confidence in that. Since all this began she had been unable to study her Druid magic as much as she would have liked, only brief periods of time where she was able to meditate and practice her own knowledge. It had helped that Hadley had been around for her to explain the magic too. It helped to keep the knowledge she had fresh.

As she concentrating, she could hear Tartarus's concern. What did she mean by not trusting? Was she suggesting this was an illusion? While, it wouldn't be the first time an enemy caused her to see things that were there was it even possible to do for an entire group of in such a realistic world. Just what sort of chaotic enemy were they facing?

Bodies.

Her blood ran ice cold at Xibalba's words, and Bellatrix slowly, carefully, turned her eyes away from the blackened and impossibly high mountain. Suddenly the unbearable odor in the air became a lot heavier.

Bellatrix clenched her fist and tried to not to gag anew. Her discomfort at simply being in this burning town became nearly intolerable. To think, this whole town... destroyed. So much senseless loss of life.

Her clenched fist became tighter, almost painful, as heated anger filled her veins. So many people, just dead. Who could do such a thing? What kind of absolute monster...

Red tinged the corners of her sight, and Bellatrix quickly drew in a deep breath. She forced herself to walk through her meditation techniques, and she shifted her position to ground herself. Stance wide, she slowly began to relax her taut muscles. Slowly began to reign in her emotions.

It had been several months since she last lost herself to the rage. Going berserk would not help this situation at all.

Control yourself.

It looked as though the others were still capable of acting despite their own emotions, and Bellatrix focused on giving herself something to do. Some were already investigating the black mountain, and so she would stand guard, ready to react if something happened.

 Xibalba would not notice much more than what was presented: it was a bile of burned bodies, flesh blackened and burned and dehydrated. 

 Bastet  felt the energy racing away from the pile in a steady pull towards the road in front of them that branched left, following the street out of the small village. Beyond it, the cave-mouthed tunnel she remembered from Destore loomed... it was the same city.

They looked. 

Aegle stayed quiet, keeping pace with everyone else but avoiding getting closer to the grotesque scene, apparently content not to have a second look, let alone a closer one. She bit her lip as Chalybs asked after what was yelling, hoping someone would reply no, we don't have to have a look even as Xibalba's voice sounded from nearer where it was, commenting on whatever.... whatever had gathered all of those people up like that. She heard more than saw someone take off, the air rushing around them as Sailor Wings bore their bearer higher; she crossed her arms, trying not to breathe in, glancing to the side street as though wishing they could go anywhere but deal with what they were dealing with. The new girl - Tartarus - said something about trusting what they were seeing, but Aegle didn't take the bait to investigate whether it was some sort of illusion; it looked like a pile of burning bodies, it smelled like a pile of burning bodies, she wasn't about to offer to see if it felt like a pile of burning bodies. 

Bastet wondered aloud if what had piled the bodies had left the trail she was following; Aegle had the gnawing idea that it had and would just love to make a burning pile of bodies out of them and wasn't keen on any of this and --

Feet flashed in her sight, and as she looked up the red boots to Vulkan, brows furrowing in disbelief, the explosive senshi disappeared in plain sight. "... Vulkan?" she called, waiting for the other to answer. If she could turn invisible, maybe she should announce it before doing so - it was freaky to just... see her disappear like that.

She squinted at the top of the pile, swearing that she saw them move... was something under there? Was someone buried under there?

"Hello?" she cried out, flying closer to the pile but making sure she wasn't within reach of anything that could be in there. "Is someone in there?"

She looked down at the group. "I think there's someone alive in here!"

The question was, how would they move away all these bodies from on top of them?

So, great, that had proved most unfruitful. Yes, it was indeed a pile of dead, burned bodies. For as much as she could see, there was no more information to be gained. Sailor Xibalba stifled a disappointed sigh, because she didn't really want to have to breathe in more of the smell than she had to after exhaling. And then, Sailor Tartarus drew closer with her phase rifle and commented on what was in front of them. Sailor Xibalba shrugged, "whether it is real or not, it feels real enough."

Stepping away from the pile, Sailor Xibalba turned to hear what Sailor Baster said. Oh, that's weird, another person was missing, the one that had given her the nickname. "If the magic energy is what gathered the bodies, then yeah, but it could be something else. Either way, that magical energy is the only thing we've really sensed so far. In my opinion we should check it out." 

Well, hopefully the magic energy hadn't gathered the bodies, because it also meant it may have killed them to begin with, and that wouldn't bode well for their group. Although Sailor Xibalba loved a battle, she wasn't stupid. She knew none of what was in front of them meant nice and cuddly things would happen to the senshi if they checked out the magical energy. 

And then, Sailor Andromeda flew upwards to check out the top of the pile, particularly the wailing noise. 

"Wait!" Sailor Xibalba called out hastily once Sailor Andromeda reported what she saw at the top. "Sailor Chalybs picked up nothing with her energy scanner and Sailor Nocturnus' thing found no evil and whatever Sailor Bastet is picking up isn't here." She jerked a thumb up toward the top of the pile, "So... what does that mean the wailing is coming from?" 

She didn't have the answer, but the main point was 'what options were left? A trap?'

The cry from Andromeda made the small girl freeze, horrified at the thought. She couldn't stop herself from imagining what it might feel like to be trapped under there, with the smells and heat closing in around you, slowly suffocating, trying to cry out for aid with no one to hear you...

"We have to help!" she blurted out, dark eyes wide.

The comment from Sailor Xibalba only served to convince the child that whatever cried or screamed inside that terrifying sight could not be evil, since the Asturlab indicated no location for an evil force. It didn't point to the pile. If the sailor soldier in the armor didn't find energy, maybe this entity was too buried by the dead, energy-less forms of others—probably former friends and neighbors. She shuddered again, then tried to summon her own sailor wings, hoping to join Andromeda.

She disappeared.

Aegle, eyes wide, involuntarily took a step back as the group was suddenly rushed by an unknown stranger that appeared from within one of the burned buildings, her back bumping into Chalybs's metal armor as she tried to understand what was going on, but just as the new arrival shouted out what sounded like a warning, she disappeared even more abruptly than Vulkan had. Shaken, she reached back and held onto Chalybs's metal arm as she stepped farther from the building, mind racing - 

"What was that?!" she exclaimed, "Was she the planet's senshi?! Did she live here?! Did she just die?! What did she mean?!" Should they be touching the pile?! It's a d-?? D-what?? Trap didn't start with 'D' but with what Xibalba had just said that

Ari opened her eyes, realization dawning upon her. The energy flowed past the town into the same cave from their first journey to Destore.  This was the exact same village they had arrived at before. The exact same scenario...the worm! Oh goddess how did that horrific monster retun! They had killed it. Standing stunned, she found herself unable to grasp what all was going on around her. She looked to SAM and Crysdal, reaching for SAM's arm as she was closest to her.

"It's the same..." but no one heard her as right as she spoke, Vulkan disappeared and Andromeda discovered there was something still alive in the pile of bodies. Had there still been someone alive when they first arrived? Had they failed to save someone the first time around?

Then someone new...another Senshi!? Crysdal's outburst unnerved her even more. Taking a deep breath to settle herself, trying to think of Hadley, using the hope of finding her to calm herself, she turned to Crysdal.

"I don't know who that was but this is the same town!" she cried out, loud enough for everyone to hear, "It's all the same! The village, the burning buildings... The energy that I sense...it goes into a cave! Just like the first time we came to this cursed planet!  The girl was warning us. Something is not right here."

Wait, there was something under that pile of bodies? How were they even alive? Well, if they needed to dig someone out, her armor had a level of protection to it. It was creepy and gross, but possible for her to shift things around.

As SAM contemplated whether she should start moving bodies around, an unfamiliar senshi rushed out of a building, started to say something, and then just as abruptly vanished. Crysdal and Bastet grabbing her was even more startling, but she didn't say anything until Bastet gave her own thoughts. She did however, deliberately place herself between Crysdal and the pile.


"I..I really don't think that senshi was dead. She disappeared too fast. But there may definitely be something going on here." It started with D, whatever it was. Distraction? Decoy? Duplicate? Double cross? And the energy from the cave... This was weird. "Maybe some of us should check the cave while the rest check whatever is under these bodies?"

She didn't know what it was down there, but she didn't think they should leave it alone even if Chalybs didn't sense an energy from it. What if it was someone dying? She couldn't imagine the horror of someone being buried in a pile of burned corpses. And it seemed to have heard her. The pile was shifting faster. Someone or something was definitely trying to get out.

Nocturnus joined her then, which did make her worry a little in case this was a trap, but they couldn't just not help because they thought it might be dangerous, right?

Her attention was soon drawn to movement from one of the buildings - another senshi? - but before any of them could say anything, she had disappeared again, cut off mid-sentence. It's a what?

Bastet was saying that the energy she felt was flowing into a cave. But that could be a trap too.

"I don't think splitting up is a good idea - we have no way to communicate. I think we should check out what's here first, then go to the cave."

She didn't like any of this. Staring at the pile and hoping she wasn't making a big mistake, she released her chains to grab the body at the top of the pile and began moving it away to reveal what was beneath. If it succeeded without incident, she would continue until whatever was below appeared.

Whatever was making those pitiful sounds was getting louder. Bellatrix shifted position, on edge. She worried for her allies so close to such an unknown entity and she played with the idea of joining them up there.

But Aegle was still on the ground, and if something suddenly attacked down here, Bellatrix wanted to be close by in order to protect the group's healer.

And, if she was being completely honest with herself, she wanted to keep as much distance possible between herself and that horrifying mountain.

A sudden new voice caused Bellatrix to whip around, ready to defend and attack, but she only caught a quick sight of the speaker -- a senshi? -- before the girl disappeared, only a cut off sentence left in her wake.

What just happened?

Bellatrix looked around, nearly expecting even more senshi to come and go. First Soul, Vulcan, and now whoever that senshi had been. Bellatrix didn't even recognize her. Just what kind of trickery was going on in this place?

She didn't know. Couldn't possibly figure it out. She hated this, that's all she really knew at the moment.

She heard Chalybs and Andromeda discussing the idea of splitting up. Bellatrix didn't speak up with her own opinion, but she was more inclined to agree with Andromeda. Both because she generally didn't like the idea of being split up, and because her previous experiences with Andromeda lead her to trust more in her judgment.

Remaining where she was, mind still reeling at all of the strangeness going on around them in this sickening place, Bellatrix continued to provide some kind of guard for those who still stood on solid ground.

Tartarus grimaced, shuffling back a bit from the gross pile of corpses. Xibalba had withdrawn after her own appraisal, and to her credit, she didn't move to disturb them as of yet. While someone could have been trapped in there and required help, Tartarus had precious few methods of acutely assessing whether this desecration of the dead was actually what it appeared to be.

Clinging fast to Teeth's shadow, Tartarus looked up and gasped when it was noted that Sailor Vulkan had also vanished. First the feylike blonde lady had disappeared, and now the lively guardian with the dark, rough skin had been plucked away from their group. "Rocky Red is gone.." Something was hunting for the senshi, and it would not tire or relent. They had to escape this place, and if possible, find their missing fellows!

A new voice spoke again, causing the auburn-haired medic to hurriedly spin around and prepare to raise her gun. Was she trying to warn them? Before Tartarus could fully shoulder her phase rifle, the image of another - a senshi? - flickered briefly and then winked out of existence. That manner of strangeness provoked a sharp reaction from Blondie, driving the pretty healer to seek her own refuge by Sailor Chalybs. Meanwhile, Chains had started to sift through the collection of cadavers for more information. If it was a staged trap, as suggested by the magical signatures that Kitty related to them, they'd need to be on guard.

"I don't know what she said, but.. there is something wrong, and I think Chalybs gave me a vital clue." Tartarus sniffled as she spoke up to her nearby friends, brushing a tear from the corner of her eye. In any other circumstance, she would have been overjoyed to see her deep red hair and tanned skin.

"When I went to the conference, I had silvery hair, blue eyes, and pale skin. If you see that I'm a tan, hazel-eyed redhead, then.. I'm not in the 'right' body."

Its black beak breathed the free air quickly and desperately, the cries, for the moment, stopped.

Oh, well, of course all of these senshi wanted to help whatever was inside the pile of rotting, burned corpses. Sailor Xibalba sighed loudly in exasperation, folded her arms across her chest with an eye roll, but said nothing to dissuade them further. Sailor Tartarus commented on Rocky Red's disappearance. "Who?" Sailor Xibalba queried.

Sailor Nocturnus leapt to the cause and flew up to join Sailor Andromeda near the top of the pile. Sailor Xibalba followed the younger senshi's form as she flew up, but then the senshi of death and disease looked away when she heard yelling from further off. She wasn't fast enough to see who or what had been yelling. 

She turned her head to look back at Sailor Tartarus. "What was that?" She asked. And then, Sailor Aegle went into a flurry of questions that were thought-provoking, but did nothing to shed light on the what had just happened. So, no one else really knew either. But, Sailor Bastet did confirm that they knew where they were, Destore. "Wait, so once again we just so happen to be in a place that you lot have visited before?" Two times didn't really make a pattern and Sailor Xibalba knew coincidence could be at play. Their group was large, so it wasn't too unsurprising that between the lot of them that at least one person had been to Destore and that other place with the vicious ankle-biters. But, still... 

Sailor Andromeda warned that splitting up to check out the various events going on would be a bad idea, and Sailor Xibalba agreed with her. She didn't necessarily agree with checking out what was in the pile, but Sailor Andromeda was already taking action. And, Sailor Tartarus also commented on her strange change in appearance. The Lord of Death shrugged her shoulders at that one. She hadn't paid close enough attention to what Sailor Tartarus had looked like during the conference and had assumed that she had always been a red-head. 

She might have asked how the other senshi could have changed bodies at all, but then the wailing stopped. And then, the wailing stopped. Sailor Xibalba tried to use her Sailor Wings to see what was going on at the top of the mound.

Sailor Andromeda found what had been wailing, a baby bird-thing. That was interesting. But, it probably would look more attractive if it wasn't covered in pieces of rotting, burned flesh and bodily fluids. God, it must smell horrendous. Sailor Xibalba considered this for a moment, and then concluded she had a soft spot for bird-thing babies that spent their free time wallowing in death and destruction. Cooing softly in her native language, she tried to cautiously approach the creature using her Sailor Wings, but held back a few paces until she got a sign that it wouldn't bite her finger off if she got too close. It was best to approach nature thinking it wanted to kill or maim you.

Ari shuddered at the thought of going towards the cave. It just brought back too many memories of their first then subsequent encounter with the worm. But what if they had to defeat it once again in order to escape this..whatever was going on. She wasn't sure if she should say yes or no to the cave, opting rather to give advice.

"Yes, this is the exact same as our first visit here. Same town, same burning buildings, same cave. And it shouldn't be burning, we cleansed this planet of Chaos! It should be under Queen Zhi's protection again." she replied to Xilbalba's questioning.

"If we decide to go towards the cave, we should stay airborne." There was just too much danger in walking on the sands once they were outside the town.


Tartarus's mentioned of her difference in appearance between the conference and now was an interesting additional of information. Having bringing it up, Ari now recalled seeing the silvery haired girl briefly at the conference before they separated for their panels.  Before she could question Tartarus even further, the wailing from above had stopped. Ari looked up once again to see what Andromeda had discovered but still could not see anything.

Curious and feeling the need to be in the air, Ari summoned her Sailor Wings flying up to get a closer look.

Alongside Andromeda, she braced herself for whatever might happen when the teal sailor soldier used her chains to move some of the horrifying damaged corpses. When nothing leaped out to fight them, the child soldier cautiously moved a bit closer. The creature she saw instantly lowered any of her other defenses. It was so small. So dark. It was so completely adorable. She wanted to pick it up and comfort it, but worried that it would think she might be threatening it instead. Sailor Xibalba moved closer, possibly following a similar drive.

Her small wings fluttered as Nocturnus edged near to the bird, trying to keep her body language non-threatening.

"We're here to help," she said softly, trying to avoid the urge to reach out. "Are you alright?"

The incessant wailing suddenly ended. Bellatrix stopped her intent guarding for a moment to chance a look up. From her position on the ground, she couldn't make out much.

What was going on up there?

She heard Bastet's suggestion that it might be best to remain airborne. Bellatrix wasn't entirely keen on giving up the advantage from the ground, but she had to concede the fact that Bastet knew more about what to expect in this hellish place.

Well, perhaps it was for the best then.

Besides, she was rather curious about what had been causing that keening sound.

Bellatrix summoned her wings, but waited to see if the remaining members of the group would join those in the air as well. She didn't want to leave their healer with too few protectors. Her gold wings fluttered in anticipation. Flying had been strange at first, but she had grown to love it. She was surprised to find eagerness within her, despite the horrible situation all around them. A hint of guilt soon followed, and she pushed away both emotions with a small intake of calming breath.

"Shall we join them?" Bellatrix prompted, gesturing upwards towards the others.

Aegle wasn't thinking straight, her grey-blue eyes searching the buildings surrounding them as though trying to spot out any other surprises before they jumped out at them again. As Chalybs positioned herself between Aegle and the pile, the blonde put her back fully to the taller senshi. Breathing in the hot air quickly but steadily, pupils dilating in a barely controlled panic, Aegle jerked slightly at every raised voice as the group decided what to do but offered nothing by way of decision for some time, clearly shaken by the sudden disappearance and reappearance of companions, the pile of bodies, Tartarus's body-swapping, the town, the tunnel - all of it - until she stepped only slightly away from Chalybs and summoned her pink-feathered Sailor Wings, prepared to follow wherever they chose to go, very obviously ready to be out of this place.

DM wrote:

The bird, breathing quickly, eyes blinking open to reveal red irises, looked at its rescuers with a mix of curiosity and weariness, as though afraid of the strangers even while instinctively wanting to know more about them. It clicked its little black beak, gaze wandering from Xibalba to Nocturnus. It did not make the call again, quiet now as it watched, it's down-covered baby-arms fidgeting like any normal infant would... just, unfortunately, grabbing at corpse parts instead of the typical baby blanket or toys. While its down was the same color as its unfortunate blackened surroundings, it did not seem like the thing that would be comfortable there...

Bastet recognizes that the infant would be of the Cawthian race.

It was a... bird? She squinted at the tiny creature, looking weak and confused and so lost. How had it gotten up here all on its own? Had someone accidentally picked it up and threw it into the pile with the corpses? How had no one heard its cries? To be stuck in such a horrible place alone, thinking it would die... Her mind flashed to her own experience, chained to that rock in the middle of the ocean, offered up as a sacrifice. How terrified she'd been. That must be what this little creature felt.

She felt torn for a moment; instinct told her to pick it up and help, but what exactly could they do with it? It needed its mother, and they had no idea where that mother was. One thing was for sure, though, the bird needed a better spot than this one.

"I don't suppose anyone knows how to rescue a baby bird?"

The wailing had stopped after Andromeda moved a body near the top of the pile, and now SAM was curious as to what had grabbed their group's attention up there. What were they talking to? Crysdal summoned her wings to meet up with them, and SAM hurried to call on her own green energy based ones and lifted off towards the top of the pile. Resting on the pile was a very small, under-grown Cawthian. That was... a baby, right? She'd never seen a baby anything that wasn't safely kept behind a protective glass, but this one was stuck in a pile of bodies. That couldn't be healthy for it at all. Weren't babies pretty helpless by themselves?

"...Can we not take it with us? This place isn't safe," SAM asked Andromeda, getting a little closer to see it better. Anywhere was an improvement from this burnt stack of dead people.

The wailing had come to an end, and no new cries of anguish had replaced them. It looked like Chains had uncovered something that wasn't a trap, but from the bottom of the corpse heap it wasn't at all possible to see what the senshi discovered.

Well, if they weren't in any immediate danger, there was no harm with indulging her curiosity.

Calling forth her wings, Tartarus ascended towards her fellow senshi to learn of their discovery. Her eyes fell towards Andromeda, then the young Nocturnus, and finally to the subject of their attention. She clapped one hand over her mouth, gasping at the surprising turn of events. What manner of vile creature would consign a youngling to such a disgusting and tragic fate? Probably some manner of hideous, vile monster with a lump of scar tissue for a heart. The only cure for such appaling disregard of innoncent life was a bolt of purifying plasma.

Tartarus maneuvered herself closer to the pile of bodies, floating near Nocturnus as she looked for signs of physical trauma upon the birdlike creature's body. "I can heal the child if it is injured," Tartarus offered a moment later, following a necessary pause to recompose herself. Her anger was slow to build, but it was the infant's plight that lit a fire in the heart of the auburn-haired senshi. It could not defend itself; the child required their intervention if it was to see another sunrise.

"I don't know where we would take them, but Chalybs is right; any place is better than this one."

The baby bird-thing did not seem too worried about Sailor Xibalba and Sailor Nocturnus approaching closer. Sailor Nocturnus spoke softly and reassuringly to the baby while Sailor Xibalba cooed softly in her native language. When it fidgeted and grabbed at the body parts surrounding it, Sailor Xibalba's heart melted. Look at how cute it was playing in its pile of death and destruction! As it idly picked up a finger here and a small mound of disfigured flesh there, Sailor Xibalba gathered the courage to touch it. "My little Yum Cimil used to play like that," she said softly, only loud enough for Sailor Nocturnus, and maybe Sailor Andromeda, to hear. 

She looked to Sailor Andromeda and failed miserably to hide how taken the Lord of Death was by the baby bird. "No, not really, but I figure the first step is to get it down from here. At least, I assume this isn't its typical nest." 

And then, Sailor Chalybs spoke of the current danger the bird faced. Sailor Xibalba frowned, "Yeah, it might not be safe with us given everything we've faced so far, but it probably won't be safe here, either. But, we probably don't want to move it very far, in the off-case the parents left it here."

She looked to Sailor Tartarus, who offered to heal the infant. "Healing is a good start. Let me see if I can get it," she said. "Sailor Nocturnus and I are the closest." Sailor Xibalba continued approaching slowly and cautiously until she was next to the infant. While she cooed reassuringly, she reached to pick up the baby bird-thing and kept her movements in line of sight of the infant.

The infant allowed itself to be picked up, turning its long-beaked, bird-like head to look at the others with those red eyes as its hands grabbed at the front of Xibalba's shirt and bone necklaces, its wings fitting above her supporting arm, jerking once or twice as though attempting to balance the rest of it as it was now "airborne". 

It looked healthy - there was no sign of trauma or injuries, and now that it wasn't being crushed or slowly suffocated underneath the blackened carnage it would occasionally make a sound like a mix of a baby's coo and a bird's inquisitive chirp.

It was a... bird.

Bellatrix had to look again to make certain she was seeing the little creature correctly. Truthfully, it wasn't exactly what she would call a bird. Not completely, anyway. But it was close enough that she felt confused by its presence.

How had such a tiny creature created that ear-piercing wail? They had heard it the very moment they stepped on this planet... place.. thing.

She frowned, sorrow for the little bird pulling at her heart.

It must have been terrified.

Despite its pitiful appearance, she had trained herself to be suspicious of most anything she didn't outright know. She watched carefully as Xibalba picked it up, but the creature didn't appear to have any desire to attack. Instead it contented itself by making cute chirping noises.

Frown still in place, uncertain what to make of all this, Bellatrix turned her attention elsewhere, trusting the care of the tiny bird to better and more interested hands. Instead, she took this time to survey their surroundings, her golden metallic wings twitching in small movements as she tried to keep an eye on all areas around them.

She still felt uncomfortable here, in this place. The sooner they left, the better.

She gasped as she realized what she was seeing. Was that a baby Cawthian? How horrible!

Her heart clenched as a dark thought raced through her mind. Had they failed a little one just like this the first time? She shuddered at the thought. The others questioned what they should do with it. "Clearly not find its family" she thought as her eyes drifted to the pile of smoldering corpses.

Surprisingly and unexpectedly, Xilbalba approached it with the care and gentleness of a mother. However, something felt off when it looked at them. It was awfully calm for complete strangers to pick it up, not to mention that the group probably looked horribly alien to the child. And it's eyes...red eyes. Red eye. Why did that seem familiar to her? She thought back to when they first met Feather Storm and Ebony Cascade, being sure to forget the circumstances that led to that meeting. Redeyes... Right! The ones that had become pawns of the worm. Was this little one a redeye? She couldn't recall seeing Redeyes that were that young...

She looked to SAM and Crysdal, who still seemed quite shaken about the strange senshi and Vulkan's disappearance. Should she mention it? It would be best, but, she eyed the young Cawthian carefully, it didn't seem evil.

"Don't you find it's red eyes strange? It reminds me of the Redeyes we had to fight off before, back when we fought alongside Feather Storm and Ebony Cascade." she spoke to SAM and Crysdal in a lowered voice. They had to have noticed as well.
