"Uh... well, maybe..." Ooqi stuttered, "Maybe it was victory! Yes, victory!"

"Victory over what, though?" Al wondered, continuing to examine the items.

"Uh... well... how am i supposed to know!" he snapped.

As Al was looking through the items, he might have stumbled upon a shield with the writting on the back:

"Our efforts were in vain,
     Our endeavors have been corrupted,
     Who were once our allies, now our conquerors,
     leaving with us the guilt of their massacre.
"So be it known, that we hide out of fear not of guilt,
     That we run out of horror, not of shame,
     And that one day we shall return, and cleanse the name of our people,
     Restoring to glory a society rich with peace, and prosperity,
     We will return our people of Vensia!"

Once he had found it, he read it out-loud so that Ooqi could hear.

"Vensia." Al repeated the last word again, "Vensia... So this belonged to Vensian rebels."

"No, couldn't be." Ooqi replied, still pondering the meaning of 'V'.

Al just glared at Ooqi, given he'd just read the entire contents of writing on the shield aloud. He then shoved the shield into Ooqi's hands so he could read it himself, presuming he could read.

Just then some figures emerged from the shadows.

"You'll regret coming here." One said in a sinister voice.

"What? Oh great, we're being captured!" Ooqi whined.

"No, you're about to be killed!" Another responded.

"Neh, I'm sure they'll negotiate." Al remarked, setting his bag on the table and sticking a hand inside.

"What! Don't try anything!" One of the figures yelled, before another decided to take matters into his own hands, and lunge at the two with his sword. Another though, decided to stop him.

"Just hold it! They could be useful!"

"Useful?" Ooqi asked, "You obviously haven't talked to Gort..."

***

Meanwhile, Gort sighed as they finished searching the entire building.

"We're going to have to wait til morning; finding them in the dark will be near impossible."

Naeleen yawned as she leaned up against some crates.

"Shish!" Cranky complained, "All that looking around the entire building for those three guys was for nothing!"

"Well they can't just leave this building and us just like that." replied Doodles.

"Well, considering you are all in imminent danger of a slow and painful death, I believe it would be in your best interest to negotiation." Al suggested with a hint of menace... that sounded very unmenacing given what his voice sounded like.

***

Summer was randomly looking in the must ridiculous places to hide, like in cupboards and buckets... and barrels...

The men just stared at Al, with puzzled expressions on their faces.

"Um..." Ooqi stuttered, "Al, maybe we shouldn't get them mad..."

***

It was highly likely that Summer would soon stumble upon the barrel attached to the tunnels.

"Let's just call it a day then." Gort sighed as he headed toward the door.

"Aha, there we go!" Al declared, pulling out a vile of slightly-glowing green-colored liquid and holding it up for the other men to see.

***

Naturally, it happened to be the last barrel Summer checked.

"Hey! Look at this!"

The men glanced at one another, then back at Al.

"What is it?" They asked, clearly not amused.

***

Gort hesitated to turn around, while Naeleen perked up and ran toward Summer.

"Woah!" She smiled, "Can we go in? Please, pleeeeease!"

"This, my friends, is a deadly magical neurotoxin that once exposed to air will evaporate into gaseous form. In a matter of seconds, your brain will begin to melt in a mush of greyish soup that will begin to ooze out of your nose and drip into a puddle on the floor at your feet. Your bodies will then crumble lifelessly to the floor as they no longer have a central nerve center to direct their actions. It is indeed a most slow and painful process..." Al explained, twirling the glowing vile around in his hands.

***

"Gort!" Summer yelled over at him, then tried to wave him over.

Cranky and Doodles arrived and were completely surprised when they looked at the barrel.

"Hey! Where did that room showed up?" asked Doodles.

The men stared at Al, before one started to nervously back away. One of the others seemed unimpressed. And for the record, there are four men.

"So if this substance is a gas, won't it affect you as much as it will affect us?"

***
 
"Let's see!" Naeleen shrieked as she jumped down the shaft, which probably wasn't the smartest idea.

Gort reluctantly walked towards the group.

"You are there, we are here, the lake is behind us. It would take us less than 3.2 seconds to turn and jump into the lake, where we will be safe until the gas disperses. However, your distance to the lake will require you at least 7.9 seconds, by which time the gas will have had enough time to begin its work. Simple mathematics really." Al replied confidently.

***

"Naeleen! NO!" Summer shouted in horror, before quickly getting into the barrel herself and following... without a light source naturally.

Three of the four men were now quite nervous, though the one who had been doing most of the talking was still... unimpressed.

Just then, Gort, Summer, Naeleen, and presumably the birds came up behind them.

"Looks like you guys have made some friends." Gort remarked, before drawing his sword.

"Gortonias?" They questioned before Gort started to lift his sword.

"What the... Ahhhh!" They screamed as Gort chased them into the lake.

Al didn't move his arm, which was still holding the vile, but his head turned to watch the men run right past him and Ooqi and dive into the lake. He then looked back at the vile.

"Hmph, oh well..." he muttered, then tossed it over his shoulder, where it landed on the edge of the rock, shattered, and most of the contents spilled out into the water.

"Oh no!" Ooqi screamed before curling up into a ball, and trying to cover his nose and mouth with his hands.

"Ooqi, what are you doing?" Naeleen asked as she limped towards him.

"I don't know. I've never understood this fellow." Al shrugged.

Summer rushed over and hugged her brother, lifting him off his feet with her muscular arms (not that any common person couldn't do it, given Al's small stature).

Ooqi then looked up,

"I'm alive!" He screamed.

Summer glanced over at Ooqi.

"What's wrong with him?"

"Oh, he's just recovering from a near-death-non-experience." Al replied, "Now can you put me down?"

"Whoops, sorry."

Summer set Al down.
