An alarm started going of inside the room. Evidently Valencia and Cysero's exit had notified the guards. Leila went on the defense, her left arm going into a light machine gun and her right into a shield. Ziedi started to draw his scythe before she told him no. "No, focus on getting her out. From what little I know and the Elder verified, she's important, extremely important. I'll take care of the guards." "You sure? Their weaponary is pretty advanced, way ahead of anything we've thought of, including you."
She shrugged. "You forget I've been around, kid. Just get her out!"
And she brought down the first incoming guard with a quick shot to the head. Ziedi nodded and examined the mechanism, consisting of three pillars and a few rune symbols he started to manipulate. "But I have no idea what I'm doing."
He said quietly to himself.
Xan and Noxus had felt the same shift Garm had, but Noxus was getting a message in his ear. "We have a problem in the chamber. It appears someone released the Elders."
"And? Old Codgers should have died."
"One survived and is currently on a escape path out with the two others."
Xan seemed to be thinking. "Any others?"
"Reports show two. One shape shifting type assassin, evidently Trixon from initial scans, and a clawed ruffian looking manipulating the control panel."
Xan eyes narrowed at control panel.
"They know. We need to move."
The two moved simultaneously, creating a solid wall of MAE in between them and their pursuers. It lasted long enough for them to be gone after it disappeared and was strong enough to eviscerate even Garrus if tried jumping through. Doors slamming and a window crashing indicated their flight path out.
Ziedi was still manipulating the tiles, trying to figure out the sequence. Each one he manged to to move correctly lit, but a misstep reset them. Even more so their were multiple steps to each tile, a total of ten and a serious number of combinations.
