She kneels down and places both hands on the ground. ‘I see the tunnels and…,’ it stays quiet: ‘There he is. A hundred and fifty miles down,’ Victoria says, looking defeated.
‘How are we going to get down there?’ Ezra asks in desperation and Viang cracks his knuckles.
‘My turn!’ Viang says excitingly and licks his lips. He reaches for his bow which appears on his back and draws it. An arrow forms and Viang aims down.
‘You’d better close your eyes and cover your noses and mouths,’ he shouts and everyone does as he says. ‘Fire in the hole!’ Viang shouts triumphantly and lets go of the arrow sending it straight through the ground. A huge dust cloud appears and Larimar uses his powers to open the glass doors and windows in the ballroom guiding the dust cloud outside.
‘There is your tunnel!’ Viang says looking proudly at the hole he made.
‘How are we not going to fall to our deaths?’ Janus asks, looking astonished.
Viang shrugs: ‘Not my job.’
‘I’ve got this,’ Ezra says and grabs a small orb from his pocket. He drops it down. ‘It will expand when it reaches the ground,’ Ezra says and jumps down after it. ‘Woohoo!’ he yells out in excitement and everyone stares at the whole scene in front of them, baffled.
‘Let’s finish this,’ Lowell says and everyone nods in agreement.
‘Geronimo!’ Janus exclaims when he jumps down. Victoria shakes her head and jumps down with a backflip.
‘I deserve a raise!’ Lowell’s bodyguard yells while jumping down after her.
‘After you,’ Lowell says jokingly toward Viang while bowing deeply as if politely beckoning one to come in. Viang chuckles and grabs Lowell’s hand pulling him down with him.
