    "Don't tell me what to do!" Rika spat out along with poopy soil(gross), digging himself partially out of the muck he had found himself driven in. Eve had a point, though- that girl seemed to be much more of a threat than the fodder mindlessly charging them. Aimlessly setting her ablaze could prove to be a dangerous tactic for the forest, however. Instead, after pulling himself out of the swamp, Rika held his palm forward at the slow moving Lucia. It seemed almost unresponsive to the glowing circle that had formed underneath, and in moments, moss was torn asunder by the spiked pillar erupting from its feet. Its body seemed to wail, but no noise came out. Countless vines shot out aimlessly, looking to strike something- anything. Trees, Koroks, and Kokiri alike were impaled or ensnared by the vines.

    So much for avoiding a fire. With little option left, Rika launched at Lucia its harbinger of death; the Fire spell. A direct hit on its body sent it immediately bursting into flames, which shot out across the many vines sticking out of its body. Such contact with the marsh fumes sent it sparking through the air and setting the area itself ablaze.

    It was definitely time to get out of there. Rika had already begun trailing after Eve before the Fire spell was shot, but the two of them were not completely in the clear just yet. Rika had to slide and leap to avoid flaming, plant tendons violently lashing around while they roasted Korok and Kokiri like shish kabobs. Yet, the burning vines were unable to support such weight- especially that of the Kokiri,- and after a couple swings began to break and brittle away. It was only a matter of time before Lucia burned away entirely, along with the zombies in its path. The only question was if Rika and Eve could escape its reach unscathed.

    Having a great head start outrunning the onslaught of vines, Eve took regular looks behind to make sure the mage was still coming. She smirked petulantly in spite of him, ultra smug about not still being back there. Some of the undead Koroks were fast enough to catch up to her. On their little shriveled Korok Copters, they were surprisingly swift. Eve unbagged some Deku Nuts and pitched them at the oncoming crowd. The small flashes and snaps actually didn't seem to be enough to stop them.

    Eve ran a decent way away from the swamp clearing. Swatting and flailing at the floral zombies seemed to be ineffective. Eve lost her breath, stopped, and then started to jump up and down. She windmilled her arms and screamed as the dirty little tree boys encroached on her. Whips of flame flashed in the air-- the trails of light coming from her now red-hot fists. Sparks danced as she made the twirling Korok leaves black and crisp with heat.

    What was immediately strange was that after the Koroks turned to dust on the ground, Eve noticed she was on a cleared path of some sort. There was some kind of trail this far out in the woods? This must have been proof that they were nearing the place that everyone was talking about. Although, that wasn't close to what Eve was thinking about. She was jumping up and down on the blackened dust of the Koroks. She was really going at it. Bouncing and cramming her heels into the soil. She pounded the charred bits of Korok into the deepest depths of the earth. Then she started to twist her hips. Eve broke into a dance, an excited childish jig, right there in the open.

    Torched vines seared against decrepit wood, igniting them on contact. That was at least the second forest fire they had caused that day. Why did everything Rika and Eve do together end in fire? It was as if they had some sort of curse, some whimsical angel of pyromancy lingering over their heads and influencing any sparks. At least this time, it was burning through evil and corruption, though Rika hoped it would not spread beyond the corruption's domain.

    Rika quickly escaped the vine's reach, though it continued to thrash for several seconds, taking Korok and Kokiri pursuing after the duo alike down. Eventually, its thrashing came to a halt, and its movements ceased entirely. Lucia Verde was dead. Again.

    The Kokiri had essentially been left in their dust, but the zombified Korok were still in hot pursuit- though, they seemed more interested in catching Eve, who had charged out first and was a decent distance ahead. Rika had no issue slicing and dicing apart the rare Korok that dared to flutter by him aggressively. Luckily, Eve decided to stop and have a hot-blooded temper tantrum, leaving Rika plenty of time to catch up.

    Eve shredded the undead Korok into an unrecognizable pile of wood and mush in an over the top and unnecessary display of violence. "I can tell you're having fun, but we should keep moving before any stragglers catch up with us- or any new threats appear." Rika interrupted her stomp-y dance while he examined the pathway ahead of them. While it was far from a hiking path, it was clear this trail had been purposefully cleared to make it easier to traverse. It certainly wasn't the braindead zombies that did this, right? Did that mean there was some kind of person behind this, with enough intelligence to do something so deliberate? Then it was possible that this corruption- and the monstrosities they had faced- were not simply leftovers from Ganon's onslaught some time ago. At the very least, it was not the result of a natural denizen of the forest; no creature that lives in Kokiri Forest would have any need for a trail specifically carved out for them.

    With these thoughts in mind, Rika glanced back over to Eve. "It's likely there will be more for you to stomp on further ahead." He encouraged? her, before continuing down the trail they had found.

    The trail led onward for a good handful of paces, and though they caught glimpses of the occasional zombified Kokiri or Korok, the low numbers on both sides made it simple to simply keep moving and avoid an altercation all-together. The path quickly reached its end, and lead to a makeshift structure of sorts. Large stone boulders of various sizes stacked against and on each other to form rudimentary walls and ceilings, set unnaturally but seemingly impractically. The fact it was not collapsing on itself could only be the result of some magical binding holding the stone in place, particularly in the makeup of the ceiling. From a glance to the side, Rika could see this stone extend for some short distance- it had, at the very least, a few small rooms to it. A wide opening in the stone was met at the tip of the trail, and a dim light could be seen flickering from its opening. Was this a home of some kind? There was no doubt to be had- someone lived here, and it was not a normal creature. No normal creature could live in this kind of inhospitable environment- not even Eve could.

    "Before we enter, let us hold the slightest bit of awareness- inside here is possibly the source of this outbreak. Should it be an intelligent creature, there is no doubt they possess powerful, evil magic, so we should be on our guard." He warned Eve, before moving to peek in the structure, then enter should it seem empty.

    As they made their way down the trail, Eve's mood slowly crawled back down to how she felt after that Gerudo berating. Her attention turned back to her arms. The dark interior of the boulder-enclave might not be so hard to navigate, she thought. Small flames emanated off of her arms, providing a glow to the surroundings.

    The interior seemed a lot larger on the inside than it had seemed from outdoors. Something wasn't right about how quiet and empty it was. . . at first at least. Eve waved her arms to thwart off a small cloud of moths that had appeared. Luckily the flames were too much for their frail little bodies. The winding pathways were hard to navigate, at first. To negate those two "at firsts" things slowly began to straighten out and fill with decorum. She noticed a chest of drawers, some banners. . . including several flasks and beakers on top of the various furniture. They were entering some kind of old laboratory.

    "Who's there?!" shouted a voice from deep down the hallway.

    Something told Eve that the central laboratory was right down that hallway, and that they were in some big trouble. Eve stepped out into a large torch-lit chamber. The voice had come from much deeper into the facility, so this must have been some kind of obstacle room. Walls were stacked high, with short gateways in between. These gateways were blocked by large green glass-like bubbles of transparent material. Eve pushed her skeletal hands into the green bubbles. It was hard like steel, they would have to find a way to turn them off.(or learn how to fly) Eve searched the whole area for some kind of switch or locking mechanism.

    "Cherries, we need to find the shut-off for these stupid wall machines." Eve pointed out.

    "Who IS THERE?!" shouted the voice again from deeper in the hallway.
