Rai’s elven ears twitch as she visibly tries to relax. Ever realize TRYING to relax is an oxymoron? She slowly takes in a deep breath before laying back in the beach chair. “Is it normal for there to be ‘weirdos’?” She asks, trying to burying the demon-killing itch.

The topic of her age struck her as strange, she realized to humans age meant a bit more than to her. For reavers there were only two mile stones that mattered, 25 and 100. None really kept track of their own age until one day you’d be called to Cappella Sistina and be given a black cloak and then a while later you’d be called again for your white cloak. “I’ve been killing demons since I was spawned but I don’t really know how long ago that was exactly. Reavers consider age differently than humans do.” Rai crosses her arms, drumming her fingertips along the wooden armrests. “Our lifespan tends to be rather short, most of us die within two or three years. However that black cloak I wear, that means I’ve been in service for at least twenty five years. If you ever get the chance to see one of us with a white cloak, they’re at least a hundred”

Rai perks at the slow, lumbering souls in the water, perking as if she’d seen some strange alien creature… too bad she didn’t get to examine it closer as the whales immediately turned tail and fled. “I am considered very old for a reaver. Only about a fourth make it to twenty five and one of about a hundred make it to one hundred. I don’t have as much…” Rai has to think on a word for a moment but the word never comes to her. “Humans do not like me as much as they like a white cloak, however if there were a siege I would likely be put at the head of a unit of fresh reavers as a commander.” Rai tries to convey what she means, not really knowing how to describe that she had almost zero social respect but a fair amount of responsibility.

Rai begins trying to put the pieces of the place together. Animals flee, the people are no alright and the place reeks of demonic energy. “I think we’re on a giant demon nest. Like a moving lair, except instead of dragging people in, whatever is here is just enticing them in. Like fishermen use bait to lure fish into their nets.” Rai sits up, narrowing her eyes as a particularly dazed man stumbles by.

“We won’t find what we want by enjoying the bait. Can you help me sneak down to the lower levels of the place later?” Her voice dips into a whisper, trying to dodge prying ears.

Aria looked at Rai and wondered just how long her natural life span was, if it was the same as other humans. Aria was quite old in human terms but she also had no idea how long her body would last. She had memories of being in psycho-stasis, being able to hear, see, touch, smell and taste but having no control. She vividly remembered one of the bio engineers saying she could theoretically repair and replace cells and DNA forever. Aria sometimes forgot she was in her 80's now technically, hard to really pinpoint age when you've been artificially grown to a certain age then just stop.

Aria was a bit shocked as she cocked her eyebrow and turned to Rai, her hushed tone a little more urgent and hiss like. "The whole fucking ship? Is the ship like... Listening to us?" As she leans right into Rai's ear. "I got um... Hold on." From a small bag Aria pulls out a plastic tube filled with some liquid. "I got this from one of the shops on the pier, some weird trinket selling shop. It says it's holy water... I have doubts but maybe?" Her tone less than confident. Aria paused a moment when Rai mentioned sneaking down inside the ship, I suppose there was no time like the present to poke around. It's not like there was any reason for the entity to be suspicious of Rai and Aria, though it did strike Aria as curious that Rai was so resilient to the ships effect, inside even she could feel something weird with her thoughts. But being close to Rai and talking with her somehow gave her clarity, was this some evil magic? Was Rai naturally repelling it? Aria didn't know what to think or say.

"Ok then Rai we can go below and try to get into the lower decks, shouldn't be hard to navigate a cruise ship. Been on enough boats to know my way around." Aria closed her eyes for a moment and thought of a way to try and get past security. "Alright then I'm gonna need a bottle of booze first for this to work."

“Possibly they could be listening. But what are we going to do about it? We’re in their nest in the middle of the ocean. The better question is what are they going to do about it? They’re also trapped in their own nest with us.” Rai leans back in the seat for a moment, watching people go by and occasionally keeping an eye on the ceiling. A little too calm for someone who just admitted that in all likelihood they were in a bunch of demon’s kitchens.

Rai perks as Aria mentions something called ‘holy water’ and hands her a tiny plastic bottle. Much to her confusion she pops the top off the tube trying to figure out what was in it, only for a small drop to drip off the lid and onto her wrist. She jumps as smoke rises from her skin as it seems to bubble up like hydrogen peroxide in an open wound and a small bit of black dust spills off from the spot. In the process she drops the bottle onto the deck out of shock and the spilled water only seems to burn into the wood of the deck much like it did on her hand.

“Ah. You mean consecrated water. So that’s why we’re not allowed to touch it.” She realizes out loud, examining the burn on her wrist. Luckily the holy water had stopped bubbling but had left one gnarly burn along the ridge of her thumb down to her wrist where parts of the skin seem to have eroded away into dust. She looks down at the smoking puddle on the deck. “That isn’t good. This place isn’t just a little desecrated. I’d say it’s bordering on… cursed.” Rai thinks out loud, not realizing she’d used the wrong word. There wasn’t a word in english for what she was trying to say as English doesn’t have a step above desecrated. Probably due to this world’s considerably rare encounters with such desecrated areas. Haunted might would be the closest word she could have used, but even that wasn’t quite right.

“Booze? I mean…” Rai looks to the other side of the chairs to find an unattended bottle of fireball sitting on the cooler of some drunken college kids… She stands, doing her best to copy Aria’s “I own the place” attitude, and nonchalantly going over to pick up the bottle as if it was hers and much to her shock, no one seemed to notice her taking their liquor. She sits back on the chair, handing Aria the liquor. “I have no idea what it’s for, but here.”

Aria was a little less than alright knowing that this entire ship was infested in some way. It was a shock when the holy water burned Rai, Aria made an effort to conceal what was happening from the other people nearby. "Whoops, gonna have to make a mental note of this." The entire ship being cursed or some kind of monster in itself gave Aria an ironic sinking feeling, having her powers dulled also made her very uneasy and uncomfortable, but she didn't want Rai to worry about her like a liability. Despite her lackadaisical attitude when she was around Rai, Aria came to like this woman quite a bit.

Aria took the bottle a little impressed by the confidence Rai showed "Might be some hope for you yet sweety, anywho right the plan. So..." A shift in her body and gaze followed her uneasy voice "There's something you need to know, in order to get these tickets I may have had tooooo Iunno... Make up some lies maybe, nothing big really. I may have said that you and I were a couple, a romantic couple, this may be a cruise for lovers. Don't get upset it all fits into the plan." Aria gets up and gives one last look for prying eyes before scampering off down a hallway, she stops near a doorway leading down into the crew area.

Further down in the bowels of the ship crewmen load cloth sacks of God knows what, the sacks have squishy contents that are quite audible as they are moved along. This deck looks nothing like the rest of the ship, it's rusted and worn down aged and outdated in design. Blood stains trail the walls and blood drips from every sack as well. The crew in the depths of the vessel reveal their form as rotting corpses of sailors long since dead, the magic veil that allows everything above to appear pleasant doesn't stretch to below.

Rai shakes her scorched hand, the dust from the burn falling to the ground in a fine dark powder. “I’m alright, just burned the skin.” She shows her hand to reassure Aria she’d be alright. The burn didn’t look normal, instead of being red and irritated it looked more like lightly singed paper with the affected flesh having been turned to ash.

“Lovers?” Rai repeats, as if processing what that word meant. Did Aria just call them losers? Last she checked a loser had bad connotations so why would that get them free cruise tickets? Then she suddenly remembers that there was a difference in consonants between the two words. “Two women can be lovers publically?” She asks incredulously, was it a concept she’d never heard of. In Dis men and women could be somewhat public, although public displays of affection were very frowned upon by polite society. Any of that between two people of the same gender could bring some bad social consequences.

None of this really mattered to a reaver though. Reavers weren’t supposed to feel anything at all, so any public display of emotion at all would bring problems, as well as the fact Rai couldn’t really tell the physical difference between a male and female. “I won’t be upset. I just don’t understand what that entails.” The reaver honestly admits. Romance was the major social norm she just couldn’t understand. Going from a very repressive social climate to a touchy feely and emotionally accepting culture was a major shock so far.

Rai keep’s her voice down to sneak along with Aria. She stops at the door, taking in a breath before reaching out a hand to her friend. “Wait, Aria. I smell blood. And decay. We should go back to our room and get my scythes first. The magic in them is diminished for some reason, but they are still useful against anything undead.” Rai suggests, not necessarily wanting to get into a possible undead situation unarmed. Seeing undead was already hard enough due to lack of souls, being forced into unarmed combat could be much worse. “Unless you can be sneak.” She mumbles, botching the pronunciation as her voice trails, scanning around for any souls below deck.

As they were talking two security guards came strolling down the hallway, it would be seconds before they came around the corner and found Rai and Aria sneaking around where they shouldn't be. It was now when Aria put her ruse into effect. She takes some of the liquor for the bottle on her finger and rubs it on Rai's neck and her own, the smell gently wafted off of the both of them. To any passer by they might just appear as two drunks. Aria then grabs Rai by her hips and pins her to the wall "Just go with it." she whispers before locking lips with Rai in a rather deep and passionate embrace. She giggles drunkenly as she leans into Rai being quite intimate with their limited space, the guard eyes them both as he comes down the hall.

"Excuse me ladies, this is a uh... "He pauses for a moment when spotting the two clearly drunk couple that wandered over here for some private fun. His orders are to keep any nosey people or threats away from the lower deck, but the ruse had worked in that he didn't consider some drunk young girls to be any sort of issue. "Listen just... Dont let me catch you here on my way back." Aria lifts her head from its place on Rai's neck, a pink blushing hue on her cheeks and lude stare. "Our mistake sir, we'll be outta here in a second I promise." With that the guard strolled along his route going downstairs and Aria broke off the guise. "Well that was a little tense but I think he bought it, I think we can make our way downstairs now as long as we're quiet."

Aria thought about what just happened and a thought occurred to her "Hey... If you tell Cebra this story, maybe leave out this part." Aria uses here telekinesis to unlock the heavy steel door and slowly open it.

Rai hadn’t really noticed the lumbering guards drawing near, she was far more interested in the smell of rot and decay. She’d never paid much attention to the noises humans made, they were never of any concern to her, however only then did she realize they were actually a bit of a problem. She didn’t have much time to think before Aria was rubbing liquor on her.

“Uh, wh-” She starts to protest, not even really hearing what Aria said about going with it. Stumbling back into the wall of the ship and stiffening as she was rather abruptly kissed. The amount of thoughts running through Rai’s mind was beginning to get wild, never really finishing one thought before rolling right on to the trailing thought of another. On the outside she was way more stiff than normal. Sure her body was naturally a bit more solid than the normal flesh and blood person, but at the moment she felt like feeling up a marble statue, and she was about as warm as one too. Even the inside of her mouth gave off no heat and didn’t have the usual taste either. It was a more metallic taste, similar to blood. Her hands timidly draped over Aria’s back, claws threatening her skin with the stress.

She was still frozen even as Aria came off her for a minute , averting her eyes from the guard just as he walks away and Aria peels herself off her. She had no color to her cheeks, despite how much Rai felt what should have been heat there. “Ah, right. I- um.” Rai was out of words to use, having momentarily forgotten how English worked. “Won’t tell Cebra.” She confirms, choosing to not look Aria in the eyes after that.

Aria can vaguely pick up on the images going through Rai's mind, they're not completely clear but they're clear enough to see how shocked she was. She should probably tell Rai this isn't common and that she's just a little less wary of personal barriers, but later maybe. "Also I dont think we'd be able to sneak bac here with your weapons in hand, we gotta go it as we are, but you'll be fine just fight hand to hand. Not really waiting to hear her response for that with the security now gone it's safe to descend to the crew area, it's a twisted series of hallways below that seems impossible in its design. Perhaps years of magical augmentation warped the very space the ship was in. Navigating the halls was hard as they grew narrow and wide randomly, shot out dangerous heated steam and every so often crewmen needed to be evaded and hid from. The only guiding force down in those metal and pipe halls was Rai's instincts and abilities.

The stench of spoiled blood mixed with the rusting iron hallways to provide a less than pleasant smell, the floor had a light layer of water that looked tainted with blood and iron a deep burgundy. Every once in a while there was the sound of metallic screeching like steel gears grinding together. Through the grotesque maze there was a room that had heavily reinforced doors guarded closely by two very odd looking crewmates. They were unnaturally tall for a human if that's what they were, bones under their flesh seemed a little more bulky and even pressed against the bare skin in some places. Their faces were gaunt looking and the jawline was a little stretched.

Aria takes a hidden position behind what looks like some kind of generator or other device and peers over to get a good look at the guards. She whispers to Rai "Ok we made it this far on stealth, we need some distraction to get by these two."
