She narrowed her eyes at him. "What's that supposed to mean?"

He laughed. "We already established that you're completely nuts," he said with a wink. And finally they had reached the fifth floor.

"Not completely..." She stopped suddenly as she heard footsteps and the murmur of voices coming from the corridor opposite of the statue. These were obviously not students.

Instead of speaking she grabbed Cade's hand and pulled him quickly onto the other side of a suit of armor.

It had all sort of been abstract to him until that moment when he realized they actually could be caught sneaking around. And then, with the shot of adrenaline that followed the footsteps, and Emily's hand pulling him along, he was suddenly thrilled. He pressed himself flat to the wall behind the armor, peeking around the metal when he thought he could, trying to get a glimpse of whatever or whoever it was.

She pressed herself into the wall close to Cade and tried to control her breathing. Adrenaline made her giddy and she almost laughed before she clasped her hands over her mouth to stop it.

The professors passed, deep in conversation, but she wasn't listening to their words. She couldn't hear them over the mantra in her own head: 'Pleasedon'tseeus. Pleasedon't see us. Pleeeeeeeasedon'tseeus!'

He held his breath as they passed, too absorbed in their own conversation to think much about anything else. And when the coast was clear he stepped out from against the wall and grinned.

"Piece of cake."

She made her best effort to glare at his flippancy, but it came out looking like a grin and a giggle. Taking his hand she turned and urged him toward the statue a few meters away.

"C'Mon daredevil."

"What are we looking for again?" he asked.

"Gregory the Smarmy," she pointed at the statue in front of them and let go of his hand as they approached it. "I think the twins said there's a passage out of the castle from here."

"I don't know. That's what we have to figure out." She stopped in front of the statue giving it a once over with her eyes.

Cade went to work on the walls surrounding it. Wrapping his knuckles against the wall, haphazardly. There was a clear indication that he didn't think they were going to find anything.

Emily went forward and started groping the statue for any triggers. Using the goblet in the statue's hand for leverage she stepped onto the pedestal and lifted herself higher. Before she could gain a steady position the goblet turned, twisting the fisted stone hand at the wrist and triggering some sort of switch. She scrambled off the statue as it slid with a whisper of stone against stone sideways along the wall revealing a narrow staircase leading down in a spiral.

"Yes..." She whispered to herself and looked at Cade with a brilliant triumphant smile.

He looked over at her in disbelief. "You knew that was there, right? This is just some rouse to prove to me how clever you are?" he asked, voice low, save they get caught.

She put up her hands defensively and shook her head, but her grin was still as present as ever. "I promise!" She whispered to him and went to the opening.

"C'mon, daredevil. Let's see where this leads!" She didn't wait for him to answer, instead she started down the stone stairs and took out her wand for light.

He shrugged and stepped into the tunnels behind her, because what else was he going to do. "Maybe you should be an investigator or something. That was wicked quick."

She glanced back and him and waved the comment off, "It was blind luck. Lumos."

The tip of her wand lit the stairs before her as she descended, but before too long she arrived at a landing in a corridor. The corridor was bare of portraits or tapestries, but otherwise was much like the others in the castle. As her feet touched the floor torches lit on the sconces in the walls.

He snorted. "Yeah, that or you're taking me down here to feed me to the monsters." And there were monsters. That was the worst part. "What's the point of secret passages that nobody knows about? Who needed to sneak around back in the day?" he asked, mostly just to fill the silence. He was kind of creeped out.

The corridor went on for what looked like forever. He wasn't daunted, but he did wonder what exactly it was that they were doing.

"Well if everyone knew about them they wouldn't be secret, would they?" She grinned nervously at him as they fell in step side by side.

"I wonder how long this goes." she said as she tucked her wand away. She stopped suddenly and looked at him mischievously. "We could fly..."

"You mean you could fly," he laughed. "I don't have a broom."
