The animal stops right on the other side of the door. A few seconds pass and the party can now hear some scratching. Slowly but surely, the door opens and reveals the same carbuncle that has followed the party all the way to Narrowfist. He looks back and forth between Steve, Mihai and Konrad, and then tilts his head.

There's another sound coming from outside the room. As if someone was trying to stealthily go down a set of stairs.

Mihai's eyes widen, and it seems as if a piece of him is about to collapse. He drops to a knee and stares at the Carbuncle. Eyes pleading.

Konrad whispers to whoever's sneaking around. "...Hello? There's no one in here but us."

Steve quietly watches Florolf. He doesn't want to scare it away.

Amber steps into the room and once she sets her eyes on Mihai and his companions, her expression changes from apprehension to extreme relief.

"Mihai!" She forces herself to whisper and rushes at her brother to get hold of him through the bars and hug him.

Florolf is now sitting down on the floor, but even he seems a little anxious. He glances at the door from time to time.

Mihai rushes at Amber, and hugs her through the bars. Something in him seems to melt away as he does. He doesn't let go for a while.

Finally, something is going right. Steve whispers, "Amber! You're a sight for sore eyes."

"Damn it's good to see a friendly face. Can you break us out?" He doesn't raise his voice above Steve's.

Amber doesn't let go of Mihai when she notices how shaken he seems to be.

"What the fuck happened?" she asks the party. "Where's Fedler?"

"They..." - he trails off almost in a sigh, as he forces himself to stop short of choking and regain his composure - "...they took her. The Coins put foreign Orbs in our head, trying to turn us into more of them. We're holding so far, but Fedler... she wasn't so lucky. There's something else in her mind now, trying to take control."

"Breeze is gone too. I-I'd almost forgotten. Where are we?"

"Wh-what?" Amber finds this difficult to process. She tries to say something else, but can only stammer. When she hears Konrad's revelation, she frowns. "Fuckers."

She lets go of Mihai and takes a set of keys out of her pocket. "We're still on the coast, but I've been walking all day yesterday to get here." She chooses one of the keys. "I... I've been following Florolf for all this time. He was freaking out for some reason, and he led me here."

With shaking hands, she puts the first key in the lock. It doesn't work, so she tries the next one.

"No kidding? Guess I should be thankful he took a shine to us. Any idea where our stuff might be?"

The black mage waits patiently for Amber to open the cell doors. He doesn't want to overwhelm her with questions.

Amber noticeably calms down at Mihai's encouragement.

"I'm not sure," she responds to Konrad. "I saw weapons upstairs. Loads of them. Maybe it's there?"

The next key goes in, and unlocks the door to her brother's cell.

He opens the door, steps out and hugs her again - "You saved me, kiddo."

Then gently takes the keys "Let me see..." and proceeds to try to open the rest of the doors.

"We'll go there first. They have things we can't afford to leave behind."

"Good work, Amber. Is there a key to these shackles too?"

Mihai checks the rest of the keys, and notices a different shape to some of them. - "Hold on..."

He proceeds to open the shackles on Steve and Konrad, then his own. Then he turns to his sister again - "Ok Amber, what are we looking at out there?"

The teenager feels more confident seeing how the party members are immediately focused on the next step.

"Okay, okay..." She chooses her words carefully. "There are a lot of doors, but there's almost nobody in this place. I heard a few people speaking in one room; I think they were playing cards or something."

"We'll get geared up and storm that room. Steve, you'll be key. We need them alive."

Konrad rubs his sore wrists. In addition to the manacles, he keeps the toilet paper from his cell, running it out and folding it up. "That's about the only useful thing in these cells that we can take with us. I wonder if we can use the chains..."

"I don't think we'll need a chain if we can get weapons from the armory. Which we should head to immediately. Let's go."
