Amara looked stunned when Soyoka mentioned what happened. She couldnt understand how this happened, and it worried her. Gripping her bow and nodded. "Let's save Orion" she said before she looked at the others around her. "We will save him." She hoped in saying that, would make the others ready to help out. "Lead the way Soyoka." She had a small smile, showing she trusted the other female, though she knew the others still didnt trust her the best.
Sokoya nodded and everyone went into the cave, but something was off... none of the Veynoma were coming out to hold them off, but why? The group marched through the cave, with Leo acting as the guide to make sure that they weren't lost. Occasionally they would hear a noise coming from a connecting part of the cave, but nothing would come of it and they would continue after that brief pause. Eventually the entire group made it to the center, where Orion was being held in a cocoon by the acting Venoma queen. "Oh... I'm sorry. Were you looking for him?" She pointed a leg in his direction before shaking her head. "That's not going to happen. He's an ally of the Endazi, so he must die. But be comforted... his corpse will feed our children, so he won't be a complete waste." Orion was able to hear this and mumbled something incoherent in response. "Give him back or we'll flood this entire cave system with undead!" Sokoya commanded, and the queen only laughed. "He'll be dead long before that ever happens!" Sokoya was silent after this, trying to think of something to do.
Amara narrowed her eyes as she walked forward. "We arent allies with anyone but ourselves. All we wanted was to find a new home and to find peace. Nothing more" she told the creature. "If you even dare try to kill him, you all will be dead. Please just listen. You could find other ways to feed your offspring for one. The humans that attack around here, they would be perfect for this. There are too many horrible humans out there for you to be fighting other creatures when you should be working together to keep your homes safe. I've seen the humans be horrible to one another, and many have been horrible to me. Use your anger towards the Endazi towards the humans instead." She gave a small sigh. "What made you hate the Endazi" she asked. "What happened between you guys? I want to know, to understand." She hoped doing this would get them to lower their guards to help save Orion.
The queen of the Veynoma stayed quiet, looking at Orion as he struggled and tried to get out of his webbing. She ignored him for the time being and turned her attention towards Amara. "You really want to know so badly?" She crossed her arms. "Very well. The Veynoma and the Endazi were created by a devil named Il'kaalaski, and we originally were able to get along while our creator lived amongst us. But once he was killed, we... fell apart with each other and began to fight." Leo grumbled a few words under his breath. "Unless you are able to bring him back, there is no way you can make us come to peace with them." Orion continued to mumble and struggle, trying to give his thoughts but he couldn't.
Amara looked at the queen before glanced at Orion. She glanced back at the queen before she spoke again. "We might be able to. But you have to let him go. He has powers, and of I recall, one is dealing with the undead." Amara hoped this would help settle any issues that could happen, but she wasn't sure if the queen would even allow the chance to let Orion go for this. She tried to hold confidence onto her face as she waited for an answer.
Both Leo and the spider queen were horrified by this gesture. "Absolutely not!" The queen yelled. "We will not let our creator be tainted and ruined by the corrupting powers of necromancy!" She crossed her arms, not impressed. "She's right." Leo said, backing up the statement. "Unless Orion can truly revive him, then he will continue to rest in peace." A few of the Endazi and Lizardmen were starting to get restless. All of the stares from the Veynoma were wearing their patience thin.
Amara watched them before she spoke again. "Then what do you suggest? All we came here for was for peace and a new home. Nobody told us anything about a fight that didnt involve us" she said with a small sigh. "And apparently plenty of humans know about you all as well. If you all cannot get along, the humans will attack again, and Orion is not one of your enemies." She looked towards the Endazi before she looked back at the queen. "What if we can find a way for you to work together" she asked. "Killing the humans who attack you all, creating a stronger place to live." She was running out of ideas to help Orion, and she grew more and more worried about him.
Orion mumbled and strained once again, trying to free himself but it was hopeless, so he stopped and simply lied there. "I think we can agree that the humans are dangerous towards us, but still..." The queen shot a glare at Leo. "I don't think I can trust them." She crossed her arms, but one of her underlings whispered something in her ear and her face changed slightly. She sighed and looked over at Orion, before returning the gaze to Amara. "You said you wanted to come here to live... is there a place where you are living in right now? I... wouldn't be against seeing your home."
Amara looked at the queen before she looked at Orion. "That's not my decision. It's Orion's" she said. "You would need to let him free in order to even think about discussing that." Her eyes showed Orion she was worried about him before she looked back at the queen. "We won't leave here without him. Even if you don't let him go, we wouldn't leave without him."
With a flick of the wrist Orion was taken down and freed of his webbed bindings. After wiping away a few of hanging threads, he gave the queen a look before walking over and stood by Amara. "Thank you." He whispered to her before looking up at the queen of the Veynoma. "I do indeed have a place where we... and a lot more... live in right now. We were originally here to try to achieve a second home in case the humans overran the dungeon we lived in, but..." He looked at Leo. "Now I feel like my negotiating skills are going to be strained to its breaking point with this situation."
