Hattori hesitated as he stood beside the Stone Steppe, ears flicked forward as he took in the sounds of muffled footsteps below ground. There was something down there, an entryway he hadn't noticed before, and from the sounds of it all sorts of creatures had found their way inside. The smell of rotting wood lingered heavy in his nose as Hattori raised a paw to creak open the cellar hatch. He hooked his talons around the edge, testing the weight of it before pushing it open wide enough for him to slip inside. If he wished.

He wrinkled his nose at the waft of must that spilled out, only to give way to the myriad of other scents he was unable to put a name too. Whatever was stored in there came from days long since passed and though he was not much of an explorer he did have an interest in old things...

Come down, come down sweet reverence

Jynn had ventured fearless underground a number of times and though the dark, damp caverns were not her favorite place to explore she found it hard to pass one up. She'd been nosing around the Stone Steppe when she spied a tunnel leading down into strange caverns that were clearly of human origin. She now found herself in a musty room full of wooden shelves. Some shelves were lined with old books, others with glass jars or a collection of oddities. She didn't know what many of these things were for and she reached out to sniff a book, the binding long covered in dust. It tickled her nose and she sneezed loudly, the sound echoing throughout the cavern. Her ears flicked back as she heard the creak of the cellar door. Was someone else around the steppe?

Carefully making his way down the stepladder-which wasn't an easy feat for a wolf of his size- Hattori's paws soon found their way to cobbled stone. There were so many scents in the air he wasn't at fault for not noticing the freshest one yet and instead took to looking about, the pale of his eyes quickly adjusting to the lack of light down there. Shelves upon shelves lined the walls, stocked with all manners of containers and cylinders, some empty and many not. At his appearance even more skittering was to be heard, rats scurried to the furthest corners as though that would be enough to stop Hattori if he wished them dead.

Perhaps he would catch himself something on the way out, but for now he intended to venture a little while longer.

It was then he noticed the outline of paw prints on the dusty floor, leading further into the wood lined darkness. Contrary to what he'd first assumed he wasn't alone. And as if to prove his suspicion true a sneeze could be heard, as though they'd been careless and inhaled some dust when sniffing.

"Who goes there?" He asked the darkness, feeling it fair that he announce himself.

Jynn took a few cautious steps toward where the opening was, now that the door was opened once more there was a column of light shining down into the darkness. She heard a voice call down into the darkness. She hesitated for a moment then decided she may as well answer rather than startle the stranger and get attacked as a result. "Jynn, an explorer, who are you?" Her ears flicked forward to catch an sound the man uttered though as she did she heard the noticeable sounds of mice. Peering into the dark she saw a couple rodents scurry across the floor and then disappear.
