Amaya and Peter looked into the cave's interior. It was gloomy, as per usual in any cavern. Cautiously, the pair of them stepped further into Skull Rock. Where was Tiger Lily? Also, what else might be guarding her other than those torrential winds that whipped about outside? Why did Reiko, if she cared to keep her alive, bother to keep her alive anyway? Many questions whirred through Amaya's head, as she was sure must have been running through the other youth's mind before they finally came out to where the rock really opened up.
At the center, below, they were on some rock outcropping that enabled them to see the cavern floor below. There was water inside here. Amaya wasn't surprised given the fact that the rock was located right in the midst of the sea and hadn't been that far for the water to not creep into it now and then.
There was a lone figure that just simply lay there. Reiko, it seemed, didn't care to add any type of guards to watch over the seemingly unconscious or dead Tiger Lily. Peter, without looking at Amaya, had already flew down to where the Indian Princess was. Amaya furrowed her brow, shaking her head at the kid's recklessness. She checked for anything, since Rieko was good at hiding things in plain sight. Nothing seemed to be happening so despite Peter's recklessness, it looked safe. Amaya, too, flew downward.
"We should get her out of here." Peter nodded as he lifted Tiger Lily up. The two flew out of the cavern and fought their way up through the center of the twisting winds.
Reiko, meanwhile, was focused on Arin. She would have gotten him if he hadn't used her own ability against her. Having charged for him, like an idiot, the twisters she had used before had hit her. Reiko grunted as she was sent flying a few feet. When she recovered, Arin had taken flight. It wasn't over though. Reiko gritted her teeth. Inside, the real one was reeling from all the pain and stupidity. The dark entity that controlled her wasn't as bright when it came to fighting. The real Reiko wouldn't have fallen for such a thing. On top of it, Reiko didn't want to die but it looked like that would be the only way for her to get out of this situation. The thing had too good of a grip on her. She sensed something though. Maybe the end was coming faster than she hoped?
The mind controlled Reiko, as soon as she had recovered, took flight to give chase. She didn't sense what the real Reiko did, however.
