    "We're being watched." He scanned the halls one last time. "From the corners of the halls."

    He stepped back inside the room, and brought Nora in as well. He closed the door slowly and locked it thereafter. "For now," he opened his mouth for the first time since they've established this telepathic connection, "It can't see or hear into rooms.. We're safe."

    It was strangely difficult coming to this conclusion as the answers to its behaviour were laid out before them in a noneuclidean way. But Hachi didn't really care about whatever nefarious feeding patterns this looming threat posed. All he cared about was the mere fact that they can finally breathe. It had been nonstop action from the moment they left this place. He definitely needed a break...

    He found his place sitting down at one of the chairs near the desk, dropping into it with a sigh. He looked back at Nora before looking over at the desk she was digging through. "Well, since we can't exactly move around freely... We can forget about the others for a moment. If they're smart, they would've boarded up a room somewhere in the mansion." He disliked how he had to let go of the idea of ensuring their safety, but he was also highly aware of the threat outside. He didn't want to risk safety against an unknown, unseen, enemy.

    "As for what those Imperials may have to do with what we saw down there and are now dealing with..." He took a breath as the images of those events very fresh in his mind. He felt as though he was still there, pinned to the floor. And he shivered, a cold, dejected, sensation sweeping from him to Nora. "My guess is that it would have to be somewhere far more private.. This room is far too trafficked to just have that lying around.. Perhaps her private quarters.. Where that is, well.. We'd have to pray that we find it before it decides to show its face.."

    Default Watched?

    "Watched?" Nora was almost surprised to hear the sound of her own voice as it escaped her lips, and was quickly shuffled back into the office space. That wasn't surprising, there were all manner of creatures out there, and after what they had just seen, the notion that something was lurking in the shadows and watching them from the corners of the hallways was plausible. If not probable. Nora nodded silently. Taking a moment to compose herself, to quiet her mind down from all of the questions that had boiled up.

    "Let's take a breather." Nora smiled softly and made her way to Hachi, kneeling down beside him as he sat in the chair. Her porcelain face and piercing eyes staring up at him, just watching him. A ginger hand moving up to take his into her own and hold it ever so gently. "If there's one thing we know about your sister, she's smart as they come." Nora was attempting to be reassuring, fully acknowledging that he wasn't just concerned for strangers, but for his own family, regardless of how complicated and difficult those relationships could be.

    Nora slowly stood up, and carefully, with all of the grace in the world moved to set herself upon his lap, arms wrapping around his neck, she stared into his eyes, she was unflinching, as though nothing at all was bothering her, or terrifying her. "It's been you and me, since the beginning." She leaned forward, and pressed her forehead to his. "Unknown creatures or not. Mysteries or not. We can handle this." She seemed so sure, so certain. It wasn't a lie.

    "To find a woman's bedroom?" Nora smirked. And leaned back a bit, creating a space between their torso's. "Well surely you must know how to find that." Men seemed drawn to such places. Another lean in, her lips pressed to his briefly before shaking her head. "Okay, don't you worry. In a house like this... high up, not too high, in a corner likely, lots of space."
    I loved you completely. And you loved me the same. That's all. The rest is confetti.

    Nora's assurance was a welcoming sensation. And he took that time to admire her continued persistance. If it were anyone else, he might as well had perished. There was no mistaking how invaluable she became to him. She was now a part of him, and him a part of her. They were in lock-step. And her rather playful teasing was enough to cool any real doubt from his mind. She was like an antidote to a mental sickness plaguing his frontal cortex.

    "Yeah.. I suppose we do, don't we?" He gave a small smile and rolled his eyes. "But good to know you have an idea." His small smile grew into a smirk as his playful demeanor came forth with a bit of a sparkle.

    "And while we have this time," he came close to Nora but did not connect, "What of that thing the Giantess gave you? I've been thinking about it. It's...innocuous at first, but if I stare at it for too long my eyes get..fuzzy. I don't know what's causing that." He rested back in his place and glanced over at where she had placed the object.

    He did not move, and instead remained still. Her energy was coursing through his, intertwining like ribbons. He did not wish to disturb what was delicately made, and thus only really thought about their few series of steps. Since this beast, these eyes in the dark, attack via hallways, they would need to keep their time there short; crossing room to room. Yes. This was a suitable plan, but the dogmen became a quick outlier.

    He didn't feel multiple sets of eyes. He only felt one. Where did those dogmen go? Were they subsumed, and conjoined to make the creature stronger? Or do they have a different part to play in this hunt? He didn't know, and the fact that he didn't know really irked him. His face scrunched at the idea that the dogmen operate differently than the watcher.

    Nora had gotten somewhat comfortable, given their situation. Perhaps too comfortable and when Hachi had inquired about the object, her mind began to wander to it, as her eyes slowly drifted over it. "I don't know it is... or what to do with it." Nora shook her head, it was an intriguing proposition, this object was clearly worth something, it was meant to do something. But what could it possibly have been meant to do? Perhaps the Giantess had misplaced her faith in the recipient of this object.

    "It's an old manor house, right?" Nora asked aloud, not necessarily looking for Hachi to provide an answer. "That must be mean there are servant passageways. Hidden doors, things like that. Servants were meant to be unobtrusive, not to disturb the residents any more than necessary." There was something of a cute noise that escaped her lips as she thought a little further. "It would keep us out of the central hallways, and more importantly, we wouldn't need to touch the grand staircase to ascend if we can find the servant's ones."

    Nora begrudgingly stood, departing from Hachi's lap she made her way over the nearest wall and rested her ear against it, as well as the flats of her palms. Her palms were roaming along the wall, knocking every so often as she slowly moved her way along. "If this was designed as Yoriko's office... she must...have one...." Nora continued around the room until she knocked and it was hollow behind. A hollow ring was exactly what she was looking for.

    "Right... here." Nora pushed on the wall slightly, but there seemed not to be a pressure switch. Her hand was comfortable, and with a single psionic push, the door opened gently, opening inward toward the hidden hallway. They were narrow and certainly dark, but the wear on the wooden floor that was illuminated from the lights in the room indicated that it was certainly well used.
