    "Yup! Come on, vámonos," she says. "Let's go!"
    She goes in that direction towards it. "This way," she says.

    And, on the way, she adds, "I also saw a trail that goes farther into the island. Was thinking, from the top of the tower we could see if there's anything interesting in the island."

    Selekhael doesn't know what vamanos means. "That's a good idea. We could probably see a lot more from up high." Selekhael, you have wings. Why are you not flying around more? You could have already checked.

    The pair reach the tower. It's still there, black stone and rusty steel forming a column that rises from a bleak and forbidding rock in the bay. Selekhael spreads her wings. "Okay, uh, here I go." Does June have anything she wants to say or do before the angel takes off?

    June isn't really sure how easy it would be for her to get over there herself, but Selekhael flying would definitely be easy.

    There's only one thing she feels the need to say before Selekhael leaves: "Hey! If there's anything interesting up there, you need to come back and help me get there, okay?"

    And she waits.

    Selekhael flies up to the tower. She doesn't seem to be very good at flying, almost as if she's barely done it before. But she manages to land on the top of the tower. She shouts down to June. "Someone left a telescope up here! And there's a hatch leading into the tower!" She looks down. It's a long and dangerous swim and she's not sure if she can carry someone flying. "How do you want to get up here!?"

    The swordsman is committed to his endeavor, so he takes the time to drag the pews across the room and arrange them into a loose pile around the statues. Then he conjures a new ball of fire and keeps it close to the pews untill one of them catches flame. When it looks like the fire can keep going on its own, he starts backing away, retreating to the door he entered this place from the first time. From there, he watches the fire burn, not satisfied before he sees those ugly statues melt by his own eyes.

    She motions for Karasu to lead the way to the [Huntside Office] in town. Predictably, it's a bit of a hike, but it's a good cooldown considering what they both came here to do. Karasu will probably be the one to introduce the office itself, since she's presumably been there before.

    Karasu nods, and begins walking in the direction of The Hunting Grounds. "Never been there, but my big bro has, when he was a girl. I'll call him now." She says, as they leave the seaside.

    June cups her hands, to help her voice carry farther. "Are there any ropes there?" she shouts back. "Maybe we can make some kind of rope bridge, if it's long enough!" Long enough to span from the tower to the shore, at the very least. Plus, extra length to tie around something up there and to tie around...the nearest tree? So it'd have to be pretty long.

    "Or!" she adds. "Just look through it and then tell me what's in there afterwards!"

    Well, that will take a long time, hours at least, and probably more fuel. The swordsman might be able to use the obsidian skull to help the fire heat up or use its fuel slower, so it burns longer than it should.

    When the statues do start to melt, however, the orb of light between them flares, and then dims and finally explodes. Molten lead, shark's teeth and burning wood are hurled across the room, with enough force some of the flames are extinguished.

    Left in the centre where the orb once hovered is a cracked ball of clear glass.

    "No rope. Uh, what? No! That wouldn't be fair to you! You should get to explore this place too." Selekhael thinks for a little while. "Uh, this is going to be a bit strange, but I think I can get you up here with my powers. Uh hold on." She jumps and glides down to where June is. "I, uh, don't know what this will feel like, so, uh, just hold still, okay?" She holds out a paw to touch June, should she let her.

    June definitely wants to explore it, but "Sometimes, life just isn't fair," she replies.

    But.
    It seems Selekhael has even more special powers. Some kind of waypoint teleportation, maybe? she wonders. Yeah, sometimes it just really isn't fair. Flight and fast swimming and underwater breathing, waypoint teleports, quest log, quest compass...
    Yeah, character creation really just isn't fair.
    But!
    Just you wait, she vows. Eventually June will figure out what racial benefits humans have that 'angels' don't have. There's got to be some kind of benefit.

    "Um. Okay." She holds still, and gets touched.

    Selekhael touches June and nothing happens. June will probably be disappointed by the lack of effect. Wait, when did Selekhael get smaller? June now stands just over 20 feet tall. The swim and the climb are each much smaller by comparison now.. Selekhael calls up to her from a distance below. "Try to get up there quickly, uh, I don't know how long I can maintain this."

    When it starts to look like the pews might not be enough, the swordsman takes out the piece of obsidian and weighs it in his hand. He has little idea of its nature, but he figures it has at least a symbolic connection to those fiery creatures. So, he holds it in his hand and repeats his spell, fueling the flames with his magic again.

    When the orb between the statues flares, he instinctively dodges into the corridor, pressing himself flat against the wall. He's not sure what is happening, but figures that whatever that ball of light is, it's becoming unsteady due to the fire. He is hardly surprised when it finally explodes, a sharktooth flying into the corridor, narrowly missing him.

    He peeks back into the room. Seeing that the scattered embers of the fire are all that illuminate it anymore, he stuffs the piece of obsidian back into his shirt and considers his job here done. He resumes his journey back to the surface, walking all the way back into the chamber where watee covers the floor.

    June waits for something to happen.

    ...
    And she waits.
    And waits.

    !

    "Oh! Um. Yeah. Of course," she says, after realizing that something happened.

    She goes as fast as she can to cross the waters without stubbing her toes (oh no, her pajama bottoms are wet) and climb up to the top.

    The ghost turns as she feels her bones enter the room. "You found my bones! Oh, thank you. Carry them to the surface, please." If he does go up the stairs, the bones get heavier as they go up the stairs, and when he's at the top, the bundle is much heavier and has grown. Does he open it, or set it down and step back?

    June, thanks to her large size, can cross the water and climb the Tower. Selekhael was right. There is an old, grimy telescope up here, and a sealed steel hatch leading down into the tower. A few seconds later, everything gets back to normal size. Selekhael flaps her way up a moment later. "Are you alright? There aren't any side effects?"

    June goes over to the hatch and sees if she can try to open it.

    Once Selekhael's up here, she stands up and thinks.
    "Well..." Side effects, side effects. "I think I might be better at sports now. Does that count as a side-effect?" The experience of being so tall definitely made her want to be taller, too.
    She looks down at her feet. She stands on her toes. "Also, I want to wear heels now. Is that normal?"

    She stays on her toes for several moments, and then smiles.

    Selekhael laughs when June mentions wanting to wear heels. "I, uh, don't know. That's the first time I've, uh, ever done that."

    The hatch is rusty with age and the sea-spray, but its handle grinds round until it opens. A musty smell wafts up from the ladder leading down into the darkness of the structure below. Selekhael folds in on herself to human shape and peers down.

    The swordsman doesn't ascend the stairs quite yet. "I found your bones allright" , he says the ghost upon meeting her again, "but I found something else too. Was this yours?" He sets the sack of bones down for a moment and pulls out the knapsack from the folds of his shirt, presenting it to the ghost.

    June coughs from the smell.
    "Ugh, that's gross," she says when she notices the smell.

    She looks down to avoid watching Selekhael fold in on herself. "So, you got a flashlight?" she asks. Since it's still day, she should be able to see, she figures. Actually, though, it's nowhere near as dark as she expected it to be. This is, of course, from the increased night vision part of the blessing, but of course she still hasn't realized that.

    "Or maybe there's a light somewhere down there."
    She starts to climb down the ladder, looking down in case a rung is missing. Climbing ladders with missing runs is the worst.

    "A what?" That answers that. Selekhael follows June down, but seems unable to see. "Wow, it's dark in here." She draws her flaming sword, illuminating the room in dim, flickering light. June will be able to see pretty well, although Selekhael still needs to squint at things.

    The room is full of pipes and machinery. A workbench cluttered with parts and tools stands against one wall. The top half of an ominously human, rusted steel manikin rests in one corner, its mechanical guts trailing out beneath it. A water clock that has long ago run dry sits in another, with a rusted spigot and valve next to it. Another ladder leads deeper into the structure.
