'Silas' turns around to face what the commotion is all about. "Strange..." he mutters. "The host recognizes the appearance of this Ei being. It is of no consequence." He returns to continue his work on the wall. "In time," he whispered to himself, almost like a ritual chant, "all shall be consumed."

Boris nods with Jack's attempt to comfort, but he wasn't truly feeling it. He really just wanted his bone back, but he didn't want to kill the dragon to get it either. He scratches his head, concentrating hard to try and think of other options.
Herman is disappointed by Bobs interruption and grimaces at him, looking his attire up and down as she does so. She crosses her arms stroppily and huffs. She listens to their conversation for a while then looks up at Boris with a cunning smirk.
"Hey there big boy... maybe I could help get your bone back."
Boris didn't pick up on the innuendo, but the tone of her voice told him enough. Distracted from his contemplation he raises his narrow glare at her.
"You a very naughty girl. Boris doesn't like you at all. You might be a pretty lady, but your words make you ugly! Ladies are meant to have discretion - even Boris knows that much, miss. Boris doesn't want help from a woman like you."
Herman seems genuinely surprised by Boris' reply. "Well damn.... Who saw that coming?" Twisting her nose up, she turns away, gives Jack a kiss on the cheek and starts walking down the hall. "Fine, boys, I'll find a real man somewhere else." She hardly even takes ten steps before stopping at Silas, approaching him in much the same as she had approached Jack a minute before.
"Well how you doing there, Sweetie Pie? Looks like you might be a man of experience." She runs her fingers down the bristly hair of his face. "I'm ready for my lesson."
Bob is slowly shaking his head, genuinely amazed at Herman's behavior. After watching her walk away, he looks back at Jack with a nod. "Takes all sorts, I guess. But yes, I'd like to take you up on that offer. As far as I can tell, Jane, that's her name, was responsible for sticking Herman's soul into the slug as well. Not that I might blame her in this case. But it's true, Jane needs to be stopped. I was married to her a number of years before I even found out she was a witch. She's a clever one, Jack, and she also has my two kids with her. I'd prefer they don't get hurt. Nonetheless, we have a plan, let's work out the issues of this god forsaken town first, then go on that hunt together."
He looks at Boris. "And don't worry, Boris, I've lived in this town for most of my life and know where we could get our hands on some weapons. That is if we can get out of this house first."
He looks back at Buttons with Annie, and calls out to the cat by name, but Buttons only responds with a frightened look before returning his skittish attention to Annie again, then starts analyzing the area with a frightened demeanor.
"Buttons was our household pet, and I'd prefer to take him with me." He tells Jack with a sigh while looking over his tattered evening long johns. "But I'm hardly in a condition to safely get close to that girl (Annie) right now. I don't feel safe around her. You wouldn't mind going to fetch him for me, would you?"
'Silas' growls at Herman, and not in a good way. "I'm busy," he grunted. "Important work," he continued, roughly shoving Herman out of the way before returning to what appears to be writing science and magic far too complicated for any of them to understand on the walls of the mansion.

At this time, 'Silas' had finally made his way to the exit of the mansion. Sure, Boris had set him on fire earlier, but he was nothing more than a bit peeved that his clothes were ruined, and ignored Boris' apology before getting back up and continuing on his way. Unable to escape the mansion entirely, he instead opened his suitcase, marvelling at the things within. "Looks like this host is hiding more than he claimed," he muttered to himself. Then he shut his eyes. "Jackpot!" Closing the suitcase, he starts planning a way to bypass the forcefield so he could get to the old church. "I gotta get outta here before anything bad happens!"

Leon looks at the additions Marion has made to the map, relieved that she appears to have understood what the different symbols indicated. After considering some of the new paths that have been revealed, Leon takes the map and the shard and stands up, turning and pointing towards the southern door, looking at Marion as he does so and waiting to see what she does.
Leon could tell already that traveling through this labyrinth with someone he couldn't communicate with aside from body language was going to complicate things, but he figured it was preferable to travelling alone.
Marion sighs. Should I go with the stranger who I can't understand, or should I forge my own path once again? After a moment of recollection, she eventually decides to go with Leon, walking in front of him and opening the door at the very end of the room.

As she replied, Leon just gives her a blank stare for a moment before stating, "Guess that means you don't speak English..." He looks around a bit before recalling the papers in his jacket; removing the one he had been folding, he sets it on the floor, kneeling down as he picks up the mirror shard he had previously used as a makeshift weapon. Having nothing better to write with, he rolls back his left sleeve, making a small cut on his arm with the shard; using it like a pen and his blood as ink, he begins filling in the lines he had folded onto the page, eventually producing a crude map. He used circles to indicate doorways, x'd out in places the doors would not open- only one thus far.
As he finishes marking the map, he shows it to Marion- that is, if the act of cutting his own arm and marking a paper with his blood hasn't scared her off again- under the assumption that even though she does not understand English she does understand the idea of a map and points to the room they're currently in.
Marion looks at the map for a moment, before nonchalantly using spare overflow blood to make a few additions.

Leon lowers his arms, slipping the mirror shard into his jacket pocket and releasing a breath of relief. "Well, good thing that's over..."
He looks at Marion's hand for a moment before grabbing it as he pushes himself up onto his feet with his other hand. He brushes some mirror shards off of the back of his jacket with his covered left arm, looking down at Marion- who, due to her being unusually short and him being fairly tall, is quite a bit smaller than he is- as he starts. "I take it you woke up here with no memory of how you got here as well. Name's Leon. You alright?"
As Leon talked with Marion, she clearly looked confused as his remarks, as if he suddenly grew two heads. "Túl en-? Mana tye eques?" she replied.

'Silas' is only slightly peeved at being stepped on (his foot had already healed), but he then slightly but visibly winces at being kicked between the legs. Unfortunately, it's not enough for Silas to be off guard, but however...
"You trying to escape me, girl? Fine, if you want it so bad, have it!" He shoves her off him roughly, forcing her to stumble forward and fall towards Annie, before running off, away from the others.

Marion wipes her head, a bit tired from the ordeal of fighting the monster. Once again getting off the ground, she extends a hand to Leon, hoping he'd grab it and get up too.

The creature's movements are faster than Leon is able to react to, and he is pinned to the ground. He pushes back at the creature's neck with his left arm to try keep it from being able to bite at him, while with his right he grabs a nearby shard of the mirror on the ground, slashing the creature's torso in an attempt to eviscerate it.
Marion finally gets up, a bit dizzy from falling flat on the ground, and once again takes the initative to leap onto the creature's back.

As Annie speaks, Jack turns, just staring at her for a moment in confusion while Sluggy and Buttons respond. He follows them up, still confused, "Sorry, girl, but I don't know who your lover is. So for obvious reasons I can't exactly tell you where they are..."
Jack looks at Silas as he responds to Annie, unsure what to think of his response. He glances back at Annie, raking his memories for any naked glowing pregnant teenage girls he may have seen at some point during the past two days, but nothing in particular comes to mind. He looks back at Silas as he asks, "You know her?"
"And you don't? You have met Annie before, unless your mind was tampered with as well!" 'Silas' groans, continuing to browse through the host's memories while keeping Ki captive.

Jack, Ezmond, Buttons & Co
Meanwhile, Annie, moving with amazing grace, descends the stairs from the attic, through the workings of the mansion, and arrives with her glare fixed on a group of people at the other end of a hallway.
Annie now has the physical development of a woman in her later teens. The skin of her body glows with a soft, white radiance. Her exposed belly shows early signs of being with child. Her eyes have a crimson aura. She speaks in a whisper-soft voice, and despite the distance between herself and the group, her words are eerily present with them, brushing at their ears;
“Where is my lover?”
Silas suddenly hears the familiar voice and breaks away from talking with Ki. (As if anything happened there :P)
Then he saw Annie. His blood froze as he went back through Silas' memories.
"No," he muttered. "It cannot be." He took a few steps back. "The one that you love is no longer here!" he yelled. "It's gone, and not even you can bring it back!" In a gesture of defiance, he grabbed the nearest person and forced Ki between Annie and him. "I've been wandering for so long and I intend to keep this body! Devour its very soul if I must!" he growled hungrily.

As Leon manages to successfully kick the creature off Marion, she remains lying on the ground, not quite motionless, but not getting up either. However, as the creature goes past Marion to attack Leon, she suddenly springs out from her position without warning or sound to leap onto the creature's back.

The mirror seems normal, albeit very fancily decorated. Marion can't help to look at the mirror.
Before she can react, a... thing leaps out of the mirror, shattering it as it leaps out. It's weight forces Marion to the ground as she simultaneously gets hit by several shards of mirror. The creature pins Marion to the ground, and growls at her. It has the appearance of a large, shadowy beast with razor-sharp claws and teeth.
As the creature pins her down, she is unable to fight back as her arms are stuck between the creature and the ground. So instead, she screams for help. Her shrill yells are loud enough to be heard from the room Leon is in.

Marion turns suddenly just before she would enter the next room. Her eyes blink a few times for a moment.
She goes back in her memory. What did the dead corpse say?"You must leave. It's not safe here. Get out, or you'll suffer the same fate I suffered. Stay away from-"
But who? Was this the person they were referring to? But I have nothing to defend myself!
Quickly and silently, she ran into the room she was planning to go into anyway, slamming the door and hiding behind it, her heart pounding, taking deep breaths.
