    These so called Prinny penguins were particularly gifted in the stupidity department. Not to mention the volume department, as these far off caves in the middle of bleeding nowhere were abruptly filled with screams of panic and wails of distress that the majority of the company did not react to at all. In Crowley's case, they were met with a wince and a fervent wish that they came with a volume slider attached to the voicebox. In their dead-end situation, people began walking around the room, some in confusion and some in a purposeful meander, trying to find the way forward. The angel was at least as loud as some of the Prinnies, but at least she had useful wings.

    Aradia Megido was an expert at finding things but she was more than perplexed that she didn't find anything this time, or tried to at least. Maybe it was because it was too late. Two switches had been found and honestly, that was enough, judging by the appearance of a switch upon the wall. One more button pressed by Crowley and the energy field around it was dissipated. Success was success, even if they did lose some Prinnies in the process. Oh well, there was plenty more somewhere else safe from their stupidity which the reincarnation unfortunately could not get rid of. None of her worries though. She watched Laharl practically beg for a free meal under a tuff looking disguise and internally rolled her eyes. Time was wasting though and she was pumped up for some real excitement.

    That's why she, of all people, was the most ready for some fun! She leaped right into the portal like Doc Scratch was hot on her heels and for once, she was anticipating what would come next quite thoroughly. The ram troll said not a word but she had no need to, now that all the tedious parts were done and over with! She just grinned widely and made bets on what they were going to run into next, hoping she'd get into some juicy drama or something! Or help Laharl drive off some dumbass usurper before everything basically goes to hell (which it will).

    In the lighting of the room, Bun-Bun's eyes easily were face-to-face with a wall switch. The marshmallow bunny blinked, and stumbled back, but smiled smugly and crossed his arms when Flonne had given him praise. And she said that it was going to be hard to find! HAH! What could he say? He was a boss at finding things.

    Upon Flonne pressing the switch, a room unfolded before them. Just beyond the hallway facing him from where he stood, his eyes targeted on the white circle laying on the floor. A vortex, he assumed. In his world, portals were a swirling green color. Why they were different here must be because it must come from a different world; the Netherworld.

    Laharl boasted about destroying the energy field that stood in their way, but as if nonchalantly, Crowley casually pressed the switch that faded it away. The marshmallow bunny smirked. Kudos to Crowley, then. Well played.

    Familiar with magic, Bun-Bun soon enough began to detect the energy's presence. However, he noted that it wasn't very much. That's stupid, though. Since it was a portal he had no idea why there wouldn't be more.

    On Laharl's mark, Bun-Bun sprinted down the hall after the prinnies and Aradia, hopping into the portal as if it were a swimming pool. To home, sweet home!

    BOING!

    Okay then. Found a switch but didn't touch it until after a hole opened in the wall because someone else found something else, which probably meant this switch was a dud or a trap or something equally unfortunate. While the others exclaimed over the new hole in the wall, Crowley pressed his own switch while Laharl babbled about some kind of energy field that Crowley couldn't see, given that he was facing a stone wall with an inset activation device of some kind. When Laharl cut his usual prattle off, Crowley assumed they'd either all died or his switch had actually done something, and when the diminutive demon's voice started right back up again less than a second later, he realized it was the latter.

    Turning, he saw what everyone else had already absorbed, that there was a passage opened in what had before been a round wall that opened into another room with what appeared to be a smallish glowing circle in the floor, obviously the portal Laharl was prattling about. Extinguishing his flaming hand, he watched in disbelief as the majority of the party leaped with abandon into the glow, going through it in such a way that it could pass as a glowing hole in the floor, except he didn't hear any screams. Normally, Crowley was far too cautious to follow a group of people he had no confidence in into a hole in the floor that glowed a suspicious color, but if he didn't he'd have to trek all the way back through the bloody middle of nowhere and the whole trip would be for nothing. Not to mention he'd have to dismiss the majority of the party as dead until he saw them again, if he did.

    Thus thinking, he took a far more reserved pace, walking into the room, glancing back at the last member of the party and giving them a short nod before pitching over into the unknown, having not the faintest idea what would be through the other side. If whatever he landed in got his shoes dirty, he was going to kill something.

    After few moments of searching the bluenette muttered to herself the words of, "Are you kidding me?", as her shoulders descended. True she had the credits to pay for everyone that wanted to jump on for the ride for free food, it was just money that she was lucky enough to even have. This was Laharl we were talking about, however. He could have thought up of a punishment much worse if he had enough time to do so if it weren't for the search at hand. That or there was the other option of an argument taking place right then and there in the cave. Selecting the better option - going along with it - the bluenette just kept to her search until a cheer from Flonne was heard.

    Following the sounds that echoed through the cave, the group all gathered in front of an entrance that opened at the push of a finger (courtesy of Flonne). Walking through a hallway each pair of eyes were greeted to a vast room with a softly lit portal that was in the middle of the room. As Laharl mused Aqua could feel that there was something off, and just like that whatever slight force that was felt moments ago disappeared. Turning to Crowley it seemed he had pressed a switch of his own. With the trademark laughter that belonged to the overlord, creating a soft echo, he jumped through. Shortly after Flonne followed with a smile, then Aradia, and Bun-Bun.

    It surprised Aqua in the slightest how they all jumped through so quickly. Without giving a second glance at Rainfell the light provided by the Keyblade faded into nothing, a hefty sigh escaping her lips she glanced Crowley's way questioning what was going through his own mind. True that it was strange how the portal gave off a feeling of uncertainty, and one needed to tread lightly in these situations, but there wasn't any other way around this. Laharl needed help finding the Netherworld, and with their help. Glancing to Crowley who have her a nod, he jumped through. At the sight Aqua breathed, nodding her own head as if to reassure herself, before running and jumping through. The dangers on the other side could be ranging from any amount, but at the very least they had a team that would be willing to cooperate to finish this quest.

    Oh, how the thought brought back memories...
