"Cethin! Let go of my arm!" Emzara protested, digging her heels into the cobblestone ground as if that was help. If anything, it made things worse. Her bare feet scraped against the stone and left a trail of light red. "Cethin, my feet are bleeding! Stop!" More silence followed her commands and statement as Cethin seemed to expertly manuever his way through dark alleys. He was tangible for the time being, able to keep a strong grip on the lesser demon's arm.
"Can you atleast tell me why we're in the Celestial City?" She asked quietly, stopping her struggling as she stumbled along after him. "Or tell me why I couldn't bring Camarin?" She glanced down at Tran, Cethin's soul stealing companion, and gave him a questioning look as well.
After a few more minutes of nothing, Emzara was starting to think that Cethin wasn't going to talk to her at all. However, he finally stopped infront of a shop with black curtains blocking the view inside. "Well, I just thought that you could use some time out of that stuffy house. I know how much you just love being around people. But, I forgot that I needed to pick up something here really quick, so we'll be in and out. Hopefully. I like gambling and so does one of the shop keepers."
Without hesitation, he pulled her inside with him. The inside smelled havily of smoke and was dimly lit with small candles. Emzara instantly found herself not liking the place at all and as soon as she still wanted Cethin's hand to be around her wrist, he disappeared, literally leaving her in the dark. He only left her with "welcome to the black market".
Very quietly, she started to walk around, not sure where she was going. She ran into a couple people who did not look friendly, so she kept her mouth shut and backed away as swift as possible.
