“Ah… Promises, promises…” I sigh with a careless shrug, letting my arms drop to my sides.

Hm. Close enough. I’ll admit it – There’s a big part of me that would love to stick around and wear Lex down until he begs for my help… but, uh… Time. Place. Gotta be logical about this and, besides… I’m one of the good guys now… remember? I’ve tormented him long enough and it’s about time I did… ahem… The Right ThingTM

“Hey, look, man – Just relax. I’ll have you out of there in no time!” Good! Now don’t laugh. Don’t laugh. Don’t laugh. “Hahaha!” … What?! It’s like a reflex!

Okay, Ram… How are you gonna play this…? It’s a pretty deep hole… Close to fifteen feet, I’d estimate. I run my thumb over my lip as I contemplate how the hell I’m going to go about pulling poor Lexy out of his non-metaphorical pit of despair. I crouch once more, wondering if I could lower a branch down to him. There are certainly enough trees around to be able to find one of the required dimensions.

"Think you can stand, Lex?" I ask, getting up myself to indicate that I’ve devised a solution to his predicament. It’s not exactly neuroscience but, like I say – Sometimes a simple solution… is the best solution.

OOC - Okie dokie! Fixed it! Here we go! :v::sunglasses: Lemme just repeat the stuff I said in my old post’s OOC comments as well:
Yesssss! Really, really pleased to see this roleplay moving along again! Oh, and welcome, welcome, welcome, @Eagle! Glad to have you on board! :grin:

I turn towards Salene with a sympathetic smile. “Let’'s try and keep their minds off it at the moment” I say putting Baby Bray on my hip.

I cast my eyes over the beach and and see Trudy gathering up her items and turn back to Salene

"Come on let’s get the kids inside then see what we can do about some food"
With a bag on my back I start leading the children up to the building.

((OCC Hopefully this is okay! Let me know if I’m clashing or confusing anything ))

I’m half expecting more of Ram’s games, he’s got no reason to help me, and at this point I’ve been down here for a while. I prop myself against one of the walls of the hole.

Except the wall gives way, causing me to now land on my back half inside a tunnel I guess? I awkwardly get myself up to a sitting position, at least this discovery has given me another surge of adrenaline.

”Ram…” my voice calls out shakily. ”Get down here.”

Salene

I nod at Amber " Then let’s go" i answer her and change a look with ruby and the little ones, pointing them to follow us. Thank god the building isn’t that far away and we made it there in no time.
Inside i lay down our bags and watch arround " wow this is huge, you should check it out step by step" i turn to Amber

As we walk inside the building I gaze in awe at how big and empty it is in the inside.

I turn around to listen to what Salene is saying to me. “Sounds like good idea. Maybe there’s some food somewhere. Let’s set our things down here”, I point to a spot on the concrete floor near the door. "

I stare around the big room. There must have been someone living here at some point but I just can’t see any sign of it.

’'Salene stay here with Ruby and the children. Play tag or something like that to keep the children’s mind off food"
