Who Is On Which Side?Mature

The smell of damp earth was strong as they rounded the corner. Gabriel saw the Guide standing at the tunnel entrance buckets of earth lay at his feet.

“You seem a little lost” he smiled seeing Mason and Gabriel.

“No” Gabriel said peering into the dark tunnel “where does this lead?”

“One of the other sanctuaries” the Guide smiled “it’s called SycamoreTowers.” Gabriel just looked at him.

“Why?” he asked after a few seconds.

“Because it has fifty levels and they needed to make it sound nice.” The guide smiled.

“Fair enough” Gabriel shrugged. “Where do you want me?” the Guide looked surprised.

“I’m sorry?” he said politely.

“I'm here to help” Gabriel said the Guide’s surprised expression melted to gratitude.

“Thank you.” He grinned “we've been asking for help for weeks but the daemons are either to lazy or too drunk.” Gabriel nodded.

“Down the far end would be the most useful.” Gabriel nodded and quickly glanced at Mason who nodded back and Gabriel headed into the dark space. The Guide watched him go then turned to Mason a scowl on his face. “And you?”

“You know I wont help” Mason growled.

“Then piss off” the Guide snarled. 

The End
