the loud and lively sounds of the pub had transitioned into the eerie silence that enveloped the tunnel hook hand showed them. normally, it would have sent shivers down honey's spine but the adrenaline was still rushing through her veins from the excitement she just experienced with the ruffians and thugs mother had previously warned her about, but with most things, she soon realized there was more than what you saw on the surface and they were actually delightful.

there was a small skip in her step as she walked alongside lysander, looking down at monet as she weaved through honey's legs with each step she took which made her let a small giggle. eventually monet climbed up her leg and side to her shoulder before going behind her neck some and rested on her shoulders. honey finally looked over to her guide and smiled. "soooo, lysander. where ya from?" apparently the trip took more than one day, so she figured she might as well get to know him, right?

Lysander was having one hell of a week, and he wasn't even close to being done. The bruise on his jaw was evidence of the weirdest assault that had happened to him (and that was counting the incident in Italy), a reminder of how he'd completely let down his guard and lost the most expensive object he'd ever stolen to a hermit. So here he was now, playing tour guide and trying to nurse his wounded pride.

Oh yeah, and he was blind now, too. Lets not forget about that fun tidbit.

The whole pub thing was supposed to work, and yet.. it hadn't. Instead, it was almost like everyone was drawn to Honeysuckle (who named their kid Honeysuckle?), and it was really goddamn irritating. At her words, Lysander shrugged non-noncommittally. "Unimportant. Much like the hair questions." The blaring elephant in the room that he was told to not ask about was getting annoying. "Lets say I know lots of places." As he stepped, he noticed with vague interest that the pebbles sounded like they were moving beneath his feat. Funny, it sounded just like it was vibrating. In fact... "Shiii-oot." Lysander began, looking over at the general direction Honeysuckle's voice had been last, then at the tunnel from which they came. "I think we have company."

she listened as he told her it was unimportant, her eyebrows started to furrow together until he connected it to the questions about her hair, which she couldn't argue with. if he wasn't allowed to ask about her hair then it made sense he got to have some closed off topics as well. honey was about to switch the topic to something else but her curiosity jumped out again when he said he had seen a lot of passes, which was naturally intriguing to the girl that spent her whole life locked away in a tower.

"really!? wow!" an amazed expression found its way onto her face as she looked up at him, eyes wide. "what places have you been to? i've always wanted to travel and see new places but mother always told me it wasn't a good idea to the tower so i always listened to her, up until now, of course! how any places have you been to? have you been to france bef-" she quickly stopped talking when the pebbles started shaking on the ground, her breath catching in her throat as she began to try and gather all of her hair into her arms as lights from torches began to grow closer.

"what are we gonna do?!" she frantically asked, starting to run.

Here's the thing: if Lysander had known that stealing a crown would've resulted in this, he definitely would've rather taken a loss than come to the realization that he was gonna have to hide himself, Honeysuckle, and the 70 surplus feet of hair that he still had no clue about. Honestly, his first instinct was to dig in his heels and not look back - cut his losses, admit defeat, add another person on his list of "people I have backstabbed," but there was something in the pit of his stomach that made him feel... bad. Honeysuckle was so impossibly new to this world that it made him feel sick, potentially leaving her with a bunch of guards. God, he was going against his better judgement, wasn't he?

"Run!" Lysander responded to her question by scooping up an armful of her hair and her hand, booking it down the tunnel in the desperate hope that those idiots back at the pub weren't just pulling his hair on this one. "There should be an exit of some kind soon, shiny..." Lysander said, trying to make sense of how far they'd gone, trying to get a grip on where they might be. If he remembered right, the exit looked like some kind of trap door, and it was just too tall to get a grip on. Oh, great. Where'd he see this scenario before? "You're gonna have to climb on my shoulders to reach that exit. You'll need to pull me out after." Lysander would just have to hope that Honeysuckle wasn't anything like him, when it came to potentially betraying partners.

of course, when honey went to go stand on lysander's shoulders to push open the trap door, monet took this as a free pass to climb on top of her head and get out first. stretching out her arms, she was able to pull herself out, including the extra seventy feet of hair. without a second thought, she reached back down into the tunnel and grabbed his hand with her own, using all of her strength to help pull him out. after shutting the trap door, she rested against the tree to catch her breath, listening as the guards ran beneath them, straight past the trap door they had escaped from.

honey sat on the ground besides lysander, falling backwards onto the pile of her hair as she stared up at the leaves and sky. "we did it!" she said, her mind racing a mile a minute. if only mother could see her now! meeting a bunch of ruffians and thugs and now this?! it had been a day full of new experiences for honeysuckle and even though it was best mother didn't know about any of this, there was still a small part of her that wanted to be praised by the woman who raised her for getting through all of it.

"we make quite the team, huh?" her attention was now on lysander again, a smile on her face and though he wouldn't be able to see it, no one needed eyes to catch the happiness in her voice.

Thankfully, Honeysuckle wasn't quite ready to abandon her guide yet. As Lysander felt her feet leave her shoulders, there was a moment of vague nervousness. The man was currently in the middle of redefining how useful his senses were - and he doubted the four he had left wouldn't do much running away from a bunch of angry guards. If he was left in a tunnel.. But his worries were for nothing. She was surprisingly strong - something that Lysander wasn't expecting out of a woman who'd apparently spent her entire life in a tower. As he pushed off the ground, he scrabbled at dirt, kicking wildly in the air as he heard the shout of guards coming way too close. He was up on sweet, sweet ground, and he heard the sound of the trap door shutting before he even had the chance to sit up.

He laid there, panting for a few moments, grass and dirt flooding his senses as he tried to listen - tried to make sure that they were safe. There was muffled shouting, but Honeysuckle's breath was louder - she must've been close by. Finally, gingerly, Lysander sat up, adjusting the cloth he'd been using as a blindfold (who knew, light was painful to him now), wondering if it was adrenaline or the nausea of all that had just happened that was making him shake. "We did it." His tone was distinctly less excited than Honeysuckle's - but it felt like Lysander was the only one in the duo that had a real grasp on their situation.

Team. Were they a team? Lysander supposed they were, after this stint. Despite it all.. he supposed she was someone to trust. At least, for now. Now, while he was taking her somewhere she wanted. "I suppose." Lysander responded, picking at blades of grass under his fingers. "Okay... now describe where we are. We're gonna want to go east." Go east, that was the best directions Lysander could give at the moment. God, this is really frustrating.
