Bellah came to inspect the skull Sean was holding. It looked very old. “Aamami...” she pointed out two tube-like protrusions on either side of the skull, where the ears would have once been.
“I know you just got here, but... we really need to go.” Genii said to Danivere as he got closer to her. He took hold of the Queen’s hand and pulled her back to the shimmering gateway.
“Let’s get back befor-“ as soon as Genii touched the portal it felt like he’d been struck by a bolt of lightning. The veil crackled and flickered in and out of existence and the Siren was thrown backwards towards the others.
The portal barrier settled, but perhaps returning to the lake wasn’t going to be so simple.
“Leaving so soon?” a honeyed male voice echoed out through the darkness, followed by a sinister raspy laugh.
((This was probably in the small print somewhere. Lol. The characters can still enter, but they’ll get a little shock (currently) if they try to leave.))
