Before you answer, you tap the ground. You bow your head low, then whisper to your friends, "She's moving. We should do the same… back this way, to the left…"
As you begin to back away, you hear a very sudden crackling ripple up the walls. In what seems an instant, Keszeem seems to have moved behind you. "We see your lack of confidence in the hallways… you four actually ventured in here by yourselves?"
She opens her hood again, casting a blinding light down on your team. The walls seem to be just as reflective as her scales.>>364819>>364824>>364826>>364827>>364828
"Hey, you might want to keep your distance."
"We shall. It's such a curiosity imagining how you four sleuths not only evaded my children, but managed to cross the Gardens without a bridge." She forces your team to start backing up down the path she was just on.
"Obviously, you must know how by now." You make sure your friends stay behind you, then put your hooves down. Keszeem moves a little closer, then stops. "I am a descendent of Queen Adanemzurai, the cursed… golem queen. Of the east. And I'm incredibly gifted with magic."
Your friends shake in place.
"Praise be!" Scootaloo squeaks, raising a hoof half-heartedly, trying to give more credit to your witty story.
"It's not oft we have a golem for company… the daughter of Queen Adanemzurai, no less? We're honored to make your acquaintance." She keeps the light shining brightly upon your team. "Those three are your escorts, are they not? One of them must be holding your magical crown for you, then?"
She begins slithering toward you again.
