Amaya didn't want to be a burden and didn't want to show vulnerability right now. She knew that she was being stubborn but she couldn't help it. It wouldn't do them any good if she kept trying to run away from what must be done. Also, she didn't want to make Arin worry so she went on ahead and waited for them at the doorway. She guessed that what she said hadn't fooled Arin. He didn't challenge her about it though. Instead, he had followed her with his hands in his pockets. As he urged them to go, Arin stated that they might need some time to rest after this.
As Meg planted a kiss on Hercules's cheek, Amaya could see the broad shouldered hero turn red before a goofy smile appeared on his face then. He didn't quite seem to realize where it was that he was going since he kept going straight, passing Arin and Amaya and the doorway altogether. Amaya, surprised, grabbed hold of the cape or whatever it was that Hercules was wearing and tugged him back on track.
"Er, we're going this way."
Hercules looked surprised before realizing it and immediately headed toward the doorway with them, snapping out of his stupor. Amaya followed after Arin and Hercules, after she was sure their taller friend made it through alright. She gave a wave in Meg's and Phil's direction before entering the portal. When she entered the Underworld, she hadn't expected to see it in the state it was in. Although it was eerie, it wasn't all that bad. She had half expected everything to look diminished and dead looking.
"Huh, not what I expected."
It gave an eerie feel. Ahead, Amaya could see what looked to be a Coliseum. As they stood there, Amaya felt a sudden wave of nausea. It felt like the life was getting sucked out of her. In reality, it was. Hence why Hercules and his friends had made it clear that they shouldn't go down here without the Olympus Stone. Upon hearing Arin, Herclues took out the stone. The stone shown brightly around them.
"Whew, that feels loads better. I thought I was going to puke or something."
"That's why we didn't want you two to go without this."
There was a river of something in front of them. A boat was moored there. "I guess we take this to get there?"
