Alnoa, sector 14, ??:?? ?M

-Xenos-

Now, Xenos wasn't really known for his impulse control, so after a minute of gazing around and finding nothing interesting to mess with, he started making his way to the entrance of the structure. 

"Are you insane?!" Zera snatched his wrist, stopping him in his tracks. "That place could be full of booby traps." 

The platinum blonde only gave a disbelieving guffaw. 
"You're telling me that the second greatest saboteur in school -after yours truly, of course- can't disarm some primitive ass tripwires? No wonder you got caught with that toilet paper prank today..."

At hearing this, a dark look passed Zera's face. 

"Mags? Hold my robot, will you?" She asked, handing the limp drone to the tallest of the group, without breaking Xenos' gaze. 
Cracking her knuckles, she quickly strode to the front, and entered the building, the platinum blonde following closely behind. 

Entering, he found himself in a long hallway, seemingly leading to a single room at the end, with the occasional doorways scattered left and right along the hallway. Seeing Zera already ahead made him quicken his pace. 

 

The girl, probably hearing the scrape of his soles on stone, quickly turned around to face him with an urgent expression. "Watch your step! There's a-" 

*click* 

 "trap" she finished, her face displaying panic as they both looked at his foot on a sunken tile in the floor. 

Before he could step back, Xenos felt multiple pricks in all along his left arm. Turning to look at it, he gave a mental scream as he saw the multitude of darts sticking out of it. Zera was by his side in moments, shakily pulling them out, making him grit his teeth in pain.

"We need to get you to 'Ra. She always has some first aid stuff on her." She spoke hurriedly, already pulling him up, and helping him towards the exit.
