After hearing the rumors of the strange force lurking around in the shadows of the dungoeon, Helios refuses to allow his sister to walk alone to the common room. In the few days that he's been accompanying her when he can, they've had no encounters, and a small part of him is beginning to wonder if it's really just rumors gone wild.

Still, better safe than sorry, especially with Cassie. He bids her goodnight at the entrace of the common room and doesn't start heading back up the corridor toward the stairs until the wall seals shut behind him.

He can't help but feel that it's colder than usual tonight.

"Byyyye Mimi, have fun being boring!" Asher laughed at his friend's back as the prefect walked off to do whatever prefects did in times of tension at Hogwarts. Thank everything that wasn't his job. Asher would much rather go back to his room and snuggle with Diana for a while.

It's awesome how life doesn't do what you want sometimes though, isn't it?

A familiar stupid face pops up at the bottom of the stairs leading to the Common Rooms. Ugh. He promised Baer he'd be good. Apparently, fate thought it was hilarious to see his will tested.

"What are you doing down here?" Asher struggles to keep his voice level, because he can't not acknowledge Helios. Honestly... Of all fucking people...

"What are you doing down here?"

Clearly, Helios has more to worry about than some mysterious entity down here. He almost doesn't look at the source of the familiar voice toward the top of the staicase.

When he does, he wishes he could say that it's careless. But every muscle in his body is tense, his eyes like stone.

"None of your business," he snaps up at the boy.

Oh, how Asher wanted to snap back with something. An angry word or two and a fist preferably. But, he was being good and honestly these stairs always freaked him out, even before the whole... entity haunting the dungeons thing. Subtly, Asher flexes his index finger, still remembering how it snapped at a ninety degree angle the last time he fucked with that thing.

"Whatever. Just get out of my way. I have a date with a blanket I need to get to." He grumbles, avoiding eye contact as if that would be the thing that would cause another fight between them; instead of, you know, their general demeanors.

Fuck it was cold.

Helios stands, tense, waiting for Asher to snap something back. Try to start a fight. Something.

He doesn't, instead dismissively telling Helios to leave. Helios rolls his eyes, but takes a step to one side to give Asher as much space as possible go around him.

At the top of the staircase, the light flickers, then winks out. One at a time, the others in the corridor behind them follow, the only light coming from beyond the entryway at the top of the stairs.

Helios turns, looks into the darkness with a frown. Clearly, Asher's trying to scare him. He looks back up at the boy, "Are you trying to be funny?"

Asher stops hard in the middle of the stairway, staring up at the ceiling as the lights flicker out. Like they weren't supposed to.

"Bitch, do I look like I want to make you laugh. Ever." Asher snaps back, making his way down the stairs on quick feet. It was a good thing he knew this stairway like the back of his hand.

"I don't fucking care about you, but I need to get out of here." He will not get his stupid hand fucked up by this thing again. Was it following him? Shit. Asher felt his stomach in his throat.

Helios watches Asher's shadow hurry down the stairs, stepping further into the darkness. Every instinct tells him to leave -- get to the top of the stairs and as far away from the dungeon as possible.

He turns to look further down the dungeon hallway and the darkness feels far to thick. As Asher steps passed him Helios grasps him firmly by the arm. "Wait," he says, tense. "I don't think you should go down there,"

"Don't fucking touch me." Those words held more venom in them than a cobra. Asher yanked his arm roughly from Helios's grip, free hand rubbing at the place he touched like it was dirty and needed to be cleaned.

Asher rolls his eyes at his words. "My room is that way, genius. I have to go. I want to get out of this haunted ass hallway as fast as possible, thank you very much." With that, he straightens his cloak and starts his way back down the hallway again - not wanting to linger near Helios anymore than he had to.

Helios doesn't try to stop Asher as he rips his arm free from his grip. Maybe he's just freaking himself out, he thinks. Maybe there's a perfectly logical explanation for why the lights went out. It could be the Bloody Baron. Or Peeves.

Well, forget it then. Helios continues up the stairs. Behind him, the candlelight in front of Asher flickers back to light, pale blue flames. A cloud of darkness blocks the way to the common room entrance.

Asher jerks to a stop in front of that inky blackness. It had been fucking invisible the first time they met - or close to it in that dark ass room. "Oh, fuck no." Immediately, he back peddles, practically stumbling to get back to Helios. He'll take whatever fucking help he can get. The last time he met with this thing it broke his finger; who knows what it wanted to do next.

"Helios!" Asher snaps, jerking up the stairs and carefully not looking behind him. "Wait, just for a fuc--for a second." Please, I don't want to be here alone with that thing, please.

The sound of his name stops Helios in his tracks. He turns, surprised to hear it from Asher in anything other than a mocking tone, and is even more surprised to see the boy rushing back toward him.

"What now? I thought you wanted to be--" his words die in his throat as the shadow suddenly rushes toward them. Helios jerks to the side, pressing up against the wall and he can feel the rush of air as it shoots passed them, an inky dark haze blocking their exit.

Slowly, it begins to take some semblance of a shape. A long snout, erect ears, black teet razor sharp. Helios backs away, nearly stumbling down the steps into Asher as he raises his wand.

He lower sit seconds later, nudging Asher with an elbow, "Back down," he says. He's afraid to turn his back on this thing, but he's not going to try to run backwards down stairs. "Go!" He grips Asher's sleeve, bolts back down the stairs and deeper into the dungeon.

Asher might have looked like a sick gazelle flopping down the stairs, but he got there. The thing had a shape. Why the fuck did he think the thing would be cool those weeks ago?

With too much momentum, he smacks into the opposite wall of the hallway in his haste - but quickly starts to scuttle down the hallway. Helios was in front of him and a dangerous part of his mind wondered if he could just trip the guy and leave the thing to chew on him for a while. But. No. That was insane.

Tempting. But insane.

"M-Milo! Baer! Fucking--someone!" Asher choked out as they got closer to the wall that acted as the door to the dungeon.

Helios chances a glance over his shoulder as he runs. He doesn't hear footsteps as it chases after them, but it growls, low, vicious.

He faces forward again, scanning the walls for the entrance. Searching. They need to hide somewhere, do something.

He shoves the mandrake leaf in his mouth to the side of his cheek, careless, raises his wand over his shoulder. "Incendio!" he shouts. Flames burst from his wand, fill the floor behind them. The creature skids to a stop, shadows dispersing as it shys away from the light and disappears up into the shadows.

Helios stops, heart hammering in his chest as he searches for whatever it is. The flames quickly die into nothing. Helios lights the tip of his wand with a "Lumos".

The roar of flames makes Asher trip a little into the wall and look back. The thing... had stopped? Disappeared? Asher stares at the hall, heart racing a mile a minute. "It can't be fucking dead. Can't be that easy."

Shaking, he pulls out his own wand and casts his own Lumos with a shaking voice. The light itself flutters due to his panicked mind. "Shit," he hisses quietly, eyes flickering around as he continues to back up towards the Slytherin wall. "J-Just let me... get the door." He whispers, hands smacking into the wall and trying to find the proper bricks by feel.

"Shut up!" Helios hisses, a harsh whisper. He's on edge enough and hearing ASher panicking is doing nothing to help him think this through. He studies the shadows, searching for any unusual movements. Eyes dart back toward the staircase they'd just come down. If he makes a run for it, can he make it? Would it come after him or would it go for Asher?

A movement to his right makes him jump. The light in his wand disappears, replaced by a burst as he shouts, "Flipendo!". The spell hits one of the candle-holders and the candle snaps in half when it hits the ground. His eyes playing tricks on him?

The pat of Asher's hands against the wall, searching for the correct brick to allow them access, rings deafening in his ear. In there, they can hide. They can get away they can --

Helios's chest tightens. His sister's in there. "Wait!" he says, turning to Asher. He rips the boys hands off the wall, hopefully in time.
