Mariah: Argh...what IS that!
Leeta: There. Lets go there.
Ben: Can't be good.
Mariah: It's coming from this room! Mariah peers inside the door.
Jazz adjusts his grip on his sword
Mariah: Wait here.
Leeta readies her fists. Wait here?
Jazz walks up to Mariah Shhhh!
Leeta peers over Jazz & Mariah's shoulders
Mariah: This is way odd...Hey! Look!
Jazz: Hmm... kinda short for human, they look like mystics.
Mariah: Who's that?
Jazz: Who is that?
Mariah: I said it first!
Leeta: We gotta help!
Mariah peers in closer... Wait...look...
A guy in a gold robe walks up to the body, and chants. "Jaha...kjam…ia…!" The man then takes out long, silver knife....
Mariah: Oh no!
Mariah: They're gonna sacrifice him!
Leeta tries to get out into the room!
Mariah pulls out her weapon...then...she sees it!
The cultists stand back, and you see two people tied to a wall, awake. It's Keli and George! But the body on the table...it's...
Mariah: Derek! Mariah runs in without thinking!
Leeta: George...Keli...Leeta also dashes in
Jazz runs after Mariah.
Mariah: STOP! Oooohh...boy...

Ben: Nice Mekare, nice!
George falls weakly on his knees
Keli falls onto the floor
Leeta growls and rushes into the fray, her fist glowing bright blue with thunder. She drives it into a dark person's stomach in a fury, swearing her head off. It hits a cultist for 159 Damage!

George rips out a piece of his tunic (Armor is somewhere long the wall) and bandages Leeta's arm as well as he can without falling over
Leeta: Ah.....thanks tiger.
The cultist falls over, dead and bleedin!
Leeta flashes him a smile

The cultist counterattacks! 20 hp damage to Leeta!
Leeta: AH! Leeta collapses from the pain Urgh......this has been a bad day.
George 's hand goes instinctively to his beslt- but he finds it's no longer there!
George helps Leeta to a sitting position. Scum... bag...!
Jazz runs over to Leeta
The Main cultist is almost ready to cut out Derek's Heart! Hurry!

Jazz throws his sword straight at the main cultist
Mekare grins We fight now?
Ben: Hmm hmm. That’s the plan Mekare!
Mekare: Wee :D
Leeta: Yes. Let's get him.
The main cultist dodges, and starts to chant.. "Give me power...power..to crush the opposers!."
George wheezes and puffs as a wave of dizziness passes over him and kneels
Leeta helps George up
Jazz dives over the alter and grabs his sword
The cultist starts to glow...
Mariah: What's going on...?
George tells Leeta he'll be all right... take care of the cultist...
Mariah: Derek! Derek! Can you hear me?
Leeta: Uh oh..
Derek doesn't move.

George smiles Why not?
Mariah: Snow white theory?: What the hell do you mean?? Mariah shakes him again.

Ben: Look! In there!
Jazz: Well, if you get scared you can just hang on to me
Mariah: Not this again. Mariah kicks Jazz. WHATEVER!
Jazz: Ow! :)
Leeta kicks Jazz also. "Flirt! Heh!"
Keli: But after that, we leave?
Leeta: In where?
Jazz kicks Leeta, "Oh and you don't?"
Leeta: Not with people who have already got their sights on someone else!!!
Mariah sees a couple of people in the room. One of them is Akira, the other is a woman, she sounds familiar...
Jazz: Have you ever heard of being nice?
Woman: The plan is working wonderfully, sir. I'm surprised at it's success myself..
Leeta: Have you ever heard of getting bent?
Leeta: Er. Leeta quiets down
Jazz: SHHH yerself!
Ben looks confused.
Akira: That’s good. Why are you surprised?
Keli glances at Akira
Woman: It was really easy to make those fools trust me. Just help some boy on a dirt road and make it look like I was kidnapped, and I know all their dirty secrets. I'm surprised at how stupid they are!
Mariah: I know that voice...Where have I heard it?
Jazz draws his sword
Akira: Iris will be very pleased when I report the information.
Jazz: I'll give you 3 guesses
George looks at the couple with a poker face
Leeta: Poker? you play poker?
Woman: Yes, very pleased.
George: Stupid yourself... That's what I call, "charity"
Ben: No...can't be.
George: Yes… Sometimes, when I'm bored...
Leeta grins at George
Akira: Hey did you hear something?
Woman: And my stupid fiancee. What a joke that was!
Leeta: .....Is that...? Leeta recognizes the woman! Ack!
Mariah: Leeta, are you thinking what I'M thinking?!
Leeta: Yeah, I am.
Jazz: Well you two can think!
Leeta 's eyes narrow
Jazz: I prefer to take action
Leeta: Liza? Or whatever her name is?
Mariah grrs too.
Akira: Well you better see if you can find some more info.
Mariah: Yeah, Liza! What a load of shit!
Jazz: Doesn’t sound like they are gonna let any more info leak
Akira: Say you managed to escape. Ok?
Jazz: lets get them!
Ben: No way, this is all a lie! In total denial
Mariah runs in, pissed!
Leeta glances at Ben.
Jazz: Dude look at them! You heard her! Fiancee?
Akira turns around "What the??"
Leeta: Come on!
Mariah: YOU! You tricked us!
Akira: Hi Mariah.
Mariah points to Liza. You used us!
George looks sourly at Akira
Akira: I see you've met one of my spies.
Liza giggles I've been using you all along! Don’t feel too bad! In fact, you should be honored!
Leeta: Using?...Leeta growls more
Jazz: Use this!
George: Why bother with her? Akira's the big cheese...
Jazz raises his sword
George cracks his knuckles
Leeta: And you find that amusing, bitch?!
Liza: Iris knows all about you, cuz I TOLD her everything!
George puts on his armor and his sword
Liza: Oh, very! Very amusing!
Leeta throws a punch at Liza
Ben now looks beyond pissed. I don't believe this...Can’t trust a woman these days…
Akira stands back and watches
Liza: Believe it hunnie! You sucked in bed, you know...ahahah.
Mariah: Uh. Too much information. Ick.
Jazz flips over and lands behind Akira. Not so fast flyboy!
Liza is punched!
Ben: Bitch...I don't beleive this
Mariah: Well, believe it Ben!
Leeta draws back her leg to kick Liza
Akira pushes Jazz back
George considers and thinks that Jazz would be the flyboy, not Akira... as regards to abilities...
Jazz holds his sword to Akira’s throat!
Liza: That's enough!
Keli pulls Jazz away
Jazz: Don't touch me!!
Akira kicks Jazz back
Liza tries to strangle Jazz!
Jazz laughs as Akira kicks air
Jazz: Thanks Keli!
Mariah tries to pull Liza off!
Jazz kicks Liza in the gut
George's eyes narrow
Akira is distracted
Leeta frowns and grabs Akira in a hold while he's distracted STAY BOY.
Jazz dives at Akira
Liza: We should escape while we can!
Leeta holds him and kicks Jazz away BACK!
Ben: I don't think so.
Ben walks up to Akira
Ben: You'll BOTH pay...
Akira gets out of the hold
Leeta blinks Erk.
Akira: Old man you'd best stay back
Ben: Old man? What the hell are you talking about?
Akira: Don't make me hurt you.
Ben shoves Akira down!
Akira: Hey! Eternal Flame!
Ben then shoves Liza down! Liza then screams, she's fallen on Akira's sword!
George turns around
Ben just stares.
Jazz sits safely out of range of the whole fight since they can apparently handle it themselves
Leeta winces and hauls Akira's sword out of Liza and stares at the blood on the blade
Keli shudders, then turns away
Akira: Uhhh.... get off my sword
Liza makes a couple of choking noises...then dies.
Mariah: Asshole! Mariah starts to chant a spell
Leeta growls and slices at Akira with his own sword
Ben stays behind, staring at Liza's body
Akira dodges and gets his sword back and prepares to slice at Leeta
Leeta: Uh oh.
Keli stands on front of Leeta STOP!!!!!!
Keli flames out! AKIRA! You gotta remember!
Keli grabs Akira's shoulders
Mariah blinks.. Get away from him! He'll kill you!
Keli: Do you remember me?
Keli: NO MARIAH! I gotta do this...
Mariah steps back.
Keli looks into Akira's eyes
Jazz grabs some popcorn
Leeta remains silent.
Keli: Yes... *nods*
Mariah watches, on edge.
Akira falls to one knee
Keli: Don't forget us... I'm always gonna be here... for you...
Akira: What is happening..... I uh...
Leeta raises her eyebrows
Keli 's grins
Mariah can't believe it...
Akira: What have I done.....?
Keli hugs Akira close.
Mariah walks up to Akira. What happened? Did Iris do this?
Akira: I remember her kidnapping me and I was strapped to a chair...
Leeta: Ergh...that female dog!
Akira: Then she stuck some needles into by head and I passed out...
Mariah: But you're ok now...and this cult. What the hell was that about?
Keli: What else can you remember?
George thinks all this is fine... but- we'd better save the hellos for later, get out of here and HELP DEREK!
Leeta: Oh crap. Where is Derek?
Jazz: Amen George!
Ben: Mekare took him back to my cabin
Ben is silent, and walks off
Leeta puts on an afro. "Amen my brotha!"
George waves to everyone to follow down. George chuckles
Mariah: He must really be crushed about Liza..
Akira: Cult?? I only remember bits and pieces... I think they
were going to be used for some
experiments or something like that.
George: Who wouldn't, Mariah...? George sighs
Akira: The victims that is...
Leeta bops George with her afro!!
Mariah: It's not fair..
George: Let's talk all this over- later George rubs his head
Mariah raises an eyebrow.
Akira: Does anyone have a tonic. I'm kinda dizzy......
George tosses one over to Akira
Akira takes it and drinks it and then hugs Keli
Keli: It's nice to have you back, Akira...
Akira: Its nice to be back... I'm sorry for what I've done. Will you forgive me?
Mariah: I wish he would wake up...
Leeta finishes eating. "Man, that stuff was good!" Leeta decides to do the dishes
George is still feeling a little- dizzy
Leeta: Wanna help, George? Leeta grins at him
Jazz: does he have a choice?
Akira eats very slowly
Keli smiles warmly "Of course it's all right."
George: Let's go!
Leeta packs the dishes up and heads into the kitchen with George..
Akira: Thank-you Keli.
Mariah giggles, then looks at Derek and is somber again.
George: I'm turning gray with the smell of all this food...
Jazz walks over to Mariah and Derek
Leeta: Awww....poor George.
Keli grabs some grub.
George picks up the rest of the food and carries them over to the kitchen
Jazz looks down at him. He'll be fine
Mariah: I wish he would wake up...why isn't he waking up?
Mekare watches George and Leeta.
Jazz: Geez, he just got stabbed through the heart. It could be some time
Leeta smiles at George..."So....uhm...ehh..."
Mariah: He was stabbed?! Mariah looks.
George: Umm... yes..?
Mariah: No, he's not.
Leeta: You're pretty great with a sword!!!
George smiles awkwardly
Leeta: Better then I am anyway....
George: Er... thanks!
Keli glances at Leeta and George
George: You're good too...
Mariah goes back and dabs his forehead with a washcloth
Leeta hugs George suddenly, on impulse
George umms, and blushes a deep crimson. Umm.. thank you...
Akira looks at Keli and smiles then holds his hand out toward Keli.
Jazz pukes at the smell
Mariah: What smell is that?
George kisses Leeta's cheek shyly
Mariah just boggles at all of this.. Mariah stares down at Derek and smiles
Keli holds Akira's hand and smiles
George walks off quickly
Mekare: Ooooh yes! Yes! Love is in the air...haa haa haa! Now I just need to find a boyfriend.
Akira is happier than he has been in along time
Leeta gets a bit of a strange look........well.
Leeta cleans the dishes, silent.
Mariah looks down at Derek...I...No...nevermind...you can't hear me anyway...and you wouldn't understand..
Jazz glances at Mariah
Mariah sighs Maybe someday....
Jazz smiles I get the point
Jazz walks off and hops up a tree
