There was a heavy curtain at the back of the temple above the dais, which moved in small ripples as if to suggest a breeze behind it.

Conall winced, fighting down the instinct to clutch his head as it reverberated from the sound, and feeling it trigger a wave of nausea in his gut. "Don't know," he said tightly, using the toe of his boot to flip the corpse onto her back.

Despite appearing to only be in her thirties, her skin was greying, her eyelids almost translucent, and her hair looked brittle and dry. The gong continued to ring as she opened her eyes and lunged.

Art had already pressed her free hand-- the one not clutching her wand-- to her ear as if that would help block the sensation out, her teeth grinding as she glanced at Conall and drew up beside him and in front of the corpse. Her eyes were pinned on the fluttering curtain so she didn't notice the eyes opening but the lunge nabbed her attention.

"Ah-- fuck!" she tried to jump back and brandished her wand at the woman, "Stupefy!"

The red flash from Arty's wand seemed to absorb into the woman's skin and fade to nothing. It didn't slow her down.

Conall grunted, betraying his surprise with a sharp step backwards as he tried to put some distance between himself and the corpse by kicking her hard in the face.

Shit.

Art took another sharp step backward, hoping she didn't trip and land on her ass, this time flicking her wand toward the ground beneath the zombie woman's feet, "Confringo!"

Conall’s boot impacted hard with the woman’s face, caving her skull in like a soggy boiled egg, the same kind of black goo that was in his arm seeping down her front. "Ohhhh, I did not think that through," he cringed and stumbled back as Arty’s spell exploded into the floor and ignited the corpse with a loud WHOMPH of flame.

He turned to engage a another corpse that was heading their way, swirling it up in a thick rope of fire and tethering it to the wall where it could safely burn to a second death – as a third pair of arms grabbed Arty from behind.

She was distracted by the sickly black sludge and momentarily wondered what Conall would look like all zombified and then realized he'd probably beg to be burned to a crisp before he let his complexion get that grisly. Coff.

Then, of course, her eyes flicked to the fire, and Artemis was about to say something when it came out as a startled howl at the arms which she immediately began fighting against with sharp elbows.

The corpse was surprisingly strong despite its brittleness, and it squeezed her hard, exerting painful pressure on her ribs as it tried to drag her backwards and bite into her flesh. Her elbows smashed into paperthin bones, cracking them beneath the skin with dry snaps, but it didn’t seem to alleviate the force of its hold.

Conall glanced back from his battle against another assailant. He’d moved further away without realizing she hadn’t followed, and was now too far to help in time, without risking shooting her too. “Use your knife,” he said urgently. “Through the eyeball –“

Another corpse leapt at him and he was forced to focus on blasting it away with a roar of flame that lit up the inside of the temple, igniting the long, gauzy curtains that lined the walls.

Art had already been reaching for the knife by then, when the papery snaps hadn't had an effect and-- more to the point-- she was getting desperate. Getting the knife was a bit difficult considering their positions, but she managed to slip it free and twisted her head to the side to both avoid a bite and also aim the knife back somewhat blindly into her assailant's face (aiming in the general guesstimation of eyeball-range and hoping he wasn't some low or high-eyed freak in life.)

When she stabbed it backwards, she felt a slight give beneath the blade, then resistance as it scraped bone. The corpse tilted its head, trying to get to her, and that's when the knife slipped free and plunged into its eyeball.

It didn't stop moving though, and the hit felt shallow, a tugging at the blade as the creature tried to pull back.

Across the room, Conall had picked up a chair and was using it to smash one of the dead priests against the wall repeatedly, trying to crack open his skull without letting the fire die.

Fear surged up in her throat like burning bile as she gripped the hilt of the knife to haul it back out of the creature's face and attempted to sink it back in again-- not really caring to kill him this second but just to get free so she could use her wand properly from a distance that wouldn't also send herself up in flames.

She managed to yank it out, but as she did, she saw that there was very little left of the blade. It'd been eaten away like the sink enamel when Conall bled his arm the night before, little more than the hilt and a few stubborn, crumbling inches of steel remaining.

Oh fuck sakes. She stared at it for a moment of horror and disgust before she tried bashing what was left of it against the mangled eye socket and twisting, wrenching away in the same movement, reaching for her wand with her free hand.

A Wild Poltergeist Appears!


#TrollfaceMcGee



Trollface McGee appears laughing before dumping chocolate pudding all over Conall Macmillan. He then pours flour all over Artemis Weaver before saying, "Haha! You can't catch me! Trollface McGee strikes again! Two for one! Hahahahaha!" He disappears through the roof laughing as he leaves.

It wasn't the first time Conall had ended up covered in something unsavoury whilst in action, but it was just as inconvenient. He swiped the pudding from his face and swung the chair again - though this time it flew out of his slippery hand and smashed the priest against the wall, leaving a crater there splattered with brain matter.

Behind him, Artemis managed to get free, and the corpse lurched after her through a cloud of flour that had been deposited over both of them.

Art, of course, managed to inhale a lungfull of flour in her frenzied escape and coughed her way through a blasting spell (still managing, by some miracle, to pronounce all the syllables correctly) aimed at the zombie's feet before she cast a furtive glance over her shoulder to check on Conall's progress.

The corpse exploded into flame, managing to take two lurching steps forward before it collapsed.

With all the dead dealt with, Conall had slipped off his jacket and was pulling his t-shirt over his head when Arty looked back. His hair was spiky with pudding, and it was streaked down his face and his jeans.

"Good look for you." She coughed, trying to smack off some of the flour.

"This is the second time I've been covered in something disgusting by a poltergeist," he grumbled. "It's like they're angling to see me shirtless."

With no regard for their situation, he kicked off his boots and undid his jeans to shove them off.

"Yes I'm sure they're all gathered around watching the show." she grumbled and eyed him a little incredulously as she continued smacking and jostling her clothes to free the worst of the flour, "Are you changing right now?" then, more importantly, "What the fuck just happened?"

"Inferi just happened," he said simply, hanging his clothes in the air and blasting them with a firehose jet of water until it ran clear. "Looks like Fergus pissed off the wrong necromancer. I've a good mind to just fucking leave him to deal with it."

Conall, just dressed in his boxers, turned the water on himself next. It would've looked more like a sexy aftershave ad if he hadn't been furiously scrubbing pudding out of his hair.
