Hoxton took his own route. He sprinted, jumping onto a broken, old car, then to some debris from a fallen building, shooting any Masked in his way as he ran. He soon got to a building support beam, made out of cement. He ran across it, but the building shook, causing him to lose his balance and slip. He hung on to the support beam, looking down at the Masked beneath him. "For god's sake!"

"Hoxton!" Aria squeaked in panic, jumping down to the support beam in a matter of seconds. "Uh, uh, grab my hand!"

Hoxton grabbed Aria's hand, pulling himself up with her help. "Thanks, mate. Now, let's get the hell outta here." He picked up his guns again, running across the beam more carefully, checking behind him to see if Aria was following.

Amethyst stared into the crowd of Masked, trying to find the others. "Damn, I can't see any of 'em." 

"And they called us slow." Lawrence laughed, though it was laced with nervousness. Where was Lance?

Aria was indeed following with ease, her quick-paced nature convenient for such a quick-paced issue. "Look over there! I think I see the fountain from up here!"

"We're on the right track. Bloody brilliant!" Hoxton shouted, jumping from the beam to more debris, to another broken car, and finally, the floor, next to Amethyst. "Why are you still 'ere? We need to go!"

"The fountain's right over there." Amethyst replied, gesturing to an old, broken contraption which held a muddy liquid that could have once been water. "It was shaking a few minutes ago, and then stopped."

Lawrence had taken perch atop it, gazing into the crowd.

"It's not open, though. I tried pushing it and eve-" Lawrence was cut off at the fountain began to shake again. He jumped off, hovering above it. "Besides, Lance still hasn't...."

There was an unnatural, scratching sound of stone-on-stone as the fountain began to move. Beneath it was darkness.

Aria leaped down and stopped at the edge of the dropoff. "It's dark," she stated blankly, peering into the depths.

"Oi, society people. You fuhkin down there?" Hoxton called, looking into the dark. He turned, shooting some Masked that were getting closer.

"Hello?" Aria called into the void, her voice echoing though the vast chamber below.

As though in response, a light could be seen. It went up towards the group, making the passage visible. 

It was a stairway, of old, ancient steps, made of old, cracked stone. Old Christmas lights were strung along the sides of the eerie, spiral staircase, and many were burned out. It didn't look exactly professional, but very few people could get their hands on working electricity these days.

"Guess you could say it's delightful," Aria snickered as she descended.

"Suppose you could, yeah. Where's the bloody christmas tree?" Hoxton chuckled.

"What about Lance?" Lawrence asked, panic audible in his voice.

Amethyst was already heading down. "He'll show up when he gets here." 

At the bottom of the staircase was a rather secure-looking iron door. It had a bent handle, but otherwise was in alright shape. Taped onto it was a rapidly scrawled down sign.

"Attention!!!

In order to avoid letting in Masked, we request you knock on the door three times. No more, no less." 

"Oh, he's probably dead..." Lawrence mumbled, anxiously glancing up throuh the passage.

"I wish you'd die instead." Hoxton muttered. He knocked on the door. "One. Two. And mothaf***in' three."

The door almost instantly opened, and the scientist was there, grinning. "A-HA! Er, uh... come in, come in. Welcome to the Anti-Masked Society!" He stepped aside, letting the others enter, than shouted, "ALTAIR, I TOLD YOU PEOPLE WOULD COME!"

The off-screen voice, which now came from down a corridor, replied with a muttered "dammit".

"Can we do some introductions when we're actually safe, mate?" Hoxton asked, turning back to see if there were any Masked nearby. "And someone doesn't sound so happy to see us, lads."
