Setting: Dirt Hallway, The Mother's Study
Time: Day 003, afternoon, after The Devil's Entrance, but before In which siblings meet.
Summary: Jonouchi and Mio meet up in the dirt hallway.
Warnings: Contains Jonouchi and Mio in the same thread. We had to put them somewhere dark and scary to keep the cute from killing everyone.
Mio knew Zetsu'd said there was nothing down here and she believed him, but she'd decided to take a look anyway. Her flashlight way off for now, she was relying on her other senses. It was strange, the way it went from stone to soft dirt to hard and dry. If it were a little more spacious she would have tried investing in digging up the area. Maybe if there happened to be a little more damp earth in the future she would invest in that after all. For the moment, however, she settled for walking down it with one hand on the wall.
It was so dark...she shuddered, she would never come down here at night, especially not without a light as she was now. She was a little hesitant doing so now, but she wanted to preserve her flashlight's batteries for as long as she could. Tasks such as this, only for her own amusement and satisfaction, didn't warrant it. As she reached the end she could only stare, trying to make out anything usual in the darkness, wondering would appear here next and where. On the wall to her right, or perhaps off to her left? Was a torture chamber next in line? Or perhaps a dungeon? Maybe even a waiting room. Wouldn't that be funny? She let out a sigh, this place certainly wasn't pleasant, in fact, it was unsettling enough to where she didn't want to explore most of it independently, even during the day.
But at least there were no butterflies here. That much she didn't mind.
