"Is it just me... or does it seem like its taking longer than it should to find Eleanor?" Sakura asked.

Eleanor's secondary pupils dilated until they almost swallowed her iris and part of the whites of her eyes as she walked down the stairs. When she reached the bottom, where there was light, her eyes went back to normal.

She then realized that she was unable to see that trap door earlier, as it looked exactly like the floor, and only knew it was there because Tracy had told her and saw it open now.

Never the less, the darkness in the hole was not pierced by her flashlight.

Tracy wordlessly got up to go find one of the two missing girls.

Since it was possible that it was a super deep drop and Eleanor was unconscious or dead at the bottom, jumping right down was a tremendously bad idea. So instead she tied the flashlight to a long string and began lowering it down the hole.

Once it touched down ten feet below, Marissa decided that it wasn't that far to go down, so she grabbed the edges of the trap door, dangled herself down, then dropped to the floor and retrieved the light.

Eleanor was greeted by rows upon rows of machinery, all of it humming and connected with each-other, tanks of liquid of varying colors, some of them with biological specimens in them, solid blocks of various types of metals and ores, and artifacts from another time, including several charred, red/black pieces of machinery that were still humming despite being clearly broken. These were kept separate from the rest. This was all that was on the front rows, of course. There was a variety of things behind the front lines and beyond.

She heard a clink about 10 feet below.

"Eleanor...?" Marissa called out worriedly, aiming the flashlight about the room.

Eleanor stared at one of the broken machines, her secondary pupils contracting and dilating as she tried to see if there was magic on or in it.

There was indeed magic in it. It was broken and still functioning. Of course there was magic in it.

If she were to look past the first set of broken machinery, she would see a complete array of similar-looking tech. If she was clever enough to put them all together, she'd notice they all seemed to fit together, with a couple pieces still missing.

She'd also note that the place was full of magic. Everything seemed to have some aura of magical sense to it, from Light to Dark and everything in between.

Being inexperienced with different types of magic, Eleanor saw the auras but didn't know for sure what they meant. She was a bit more experienced with machinery though, and started fitting things together.

Sakura decided to get up and help Tracy look for Marissa.

Finding that she apparently didn't need the flashlight anymore, she turned it off and headed for the stairs.

Tracy discovered the trap door open a little quicker than Marissa had, since she had gotten into the habit of paranoidly looking down that hall over the last week. Running up to it, she leaned over the side and called down:

"Marissa? Eleanor? Anyone there?"

"Tracy?" Sakura asked as she poked her head around the corner of the hallway.

Marissa was already heading down the stairs.

Each individual part, being just small enough for a regular 7-year old to heave around, gradually found its place in what soon came to be a prism. Though without the missing pieces, all it was was a glorified mass of broken technology.

Until the wall behind the rest of it began to shift, revealing a passageway...

Sakura only saw a flash of purple vanish into the floor.

Tracy landed on her legs at the bottom, but fell and rolled slightly.

"My legs!" she growled to herself, shaking them slightly before getting up.

Eleanor entered the passageway, wondering why getting in was so complicated. It seemed ominous, so she proceeded with caution.

"What the..." Sakura trailed off as she approached where Tracy had disappeared, activating her Omni Tool in the process.

Jack and Kyle looked at each other.

Then both stood up in wordless agreement and went to find the missing ladies.

Tracy looked around, realizing she had just entered something rather creepy.

"Oh... drat... what have I gotten myself into?"

She realized at that point that it was probably her fault somebody else had found this hidden place.

"Oh... drat... what have I gotten those two into?"

Too worried about Marissa and Eleanor to think straight, Tracy started down the stairs, not thinking to maybe... you know... check to see if there was a way back up? Or maybe warn the others what was happening? Nah... too logical.

Trying to use her Omni Tool as a flashlight, Sakura looked down through the trap door.

Kyle and Jack entered the hallway behind Sakura. "What's going on?" Kyle asked.

"Not a clue..." Sakura replied, still trying to see something down there.

Sakura saw nothing.

***

After a short walk, the passage turned from metal to dirt, and Eleanor unwittingly found herself in a graveyard. Tombstones littered the ground, as the obvious transition from ship to earth biome became more apparent with each step. Grass had grown over some of the graves, and in the background a good distance away were giant monuments documenting some of the greats of the past. All of these had moss growing on them.

A nearby pond was stagnant and covered in lillypads. Any fish there had died long ago. No signs of life were found.

Some of the gravemarks read names like "Ludamigus Gatekeeper." "Kay-Six." "Kane." Among others.

But one tombstone had been overturned, and the grave disturbed. Something had broken out of the coffin, laying a few feet down in a hole. It looked like the tombstone had been struck by lightning. All that remained of the name of it was "ar."
