Remia was listenin to the ongoing conversation. Was the weather truly that bad? She had never minded cold too much. Of course, it was true it was much colder than the place where they came from anyway, but... she wasn't feeling as down as some of the others were. "I say they're not crazy nor foolish. Just desperate. If I knew I was going to lose, and there was only one way to escape, I would take it anyway, right? If your -A route- is to die, and your -B route- is to escape throguh this place, which one would you choose?"
She didn't want to make herself look smart, or anything like that. But she thought she was right. She would not want to underestimate their enemies. They were desperate, so they could make wrong decisions, but that didn't mean they couldn't make right decisions at some point as well... The waitress came back with their drinks, and Remia took a sip from her hot coffee, and politely asked for a little bit of milk and sugar, before she spoke, once the waitress wasn't there anymore. "What other options do we have? None, right?"
If that was the case, then it was not a case of deciding whether they had to do that or not. Rather, it was a matter of not wasting time and going for it. She looked at the rest of her partners, who remained rather quiet. She was worried about them, in a way. She wasn't the strongest person of the group, and even if she refused to accept maybe she was the weakest, she knew she would need the other's help.
Salia decided not to judge the man too harshly. She understood, after all, the obsession with the past. If the man was the way she thought he was, he basically wanted to understand the past. And a greater understanding of the past gives you a better understanding of the future as well. Soon, Allen joined the conversation, asking the man about the Golems. He questioned on what they were, and how they were to be defeated. Salia didn't hold a particularly high hope of having those questions answered.
And certainly, Dr. Valenci did not have much information on them. Golems that remained still, as if sleeping. Or rather... "Not -sleeping-, but rather... -unawakened-. There is a difference in that". Salia added to the conversation. Her words may not have been understood by all of them, but she was confident she was right. If they had been sleeping, that would mean they could awake at any moment. But they were unawakened, waiting for something specific that would retrieve them, from their deepest slumber.
"Thank you for the history comments, Dr. I can tell everyone in the group appreciates them" the rook stated. "But I believe these golems could be dangerous if they attacked unsuspecting victims, right? Their sheer size and endurance would be enough to startle the untrained inhabitants of a village. But people who know how to fight should be able to take them down. That is, in theory, right?
Salia remained quiet for a while, letting the others handle the questions. It was a reasonable thing to do. While they questioned the man, she could focus on thinking, and making her guesses about what was going on, or in what way they should continue their mission. It was during that time that she noticed there were runes in the room. Salia looked at Nuka, and saw something in his eyes. He had probably noticed as well.
"We will take on that offer, Dr. Rest assured what we see will not leave our mouths, and shall only be used for our report, and mission purposes. I hope you understand this is a very important issue, and any information we can gather will be welcome. Therefore, we prefer to see this today, as tomorrow, with all the crowd, would make our process really slow. Can we trust you will show us everything you have? I would hate for you to hide any item, saving it for tomorrow, knowing as you know the importance these items may hold on the golem situation."
"There can be various reasons why these golems are running wild. First" Salia rose one finger. "These golems may be controled by someone. If the golems had a control system back in the day, this could be likely. If they didn't, there is still a chance someone learnt a way to control them anyway. Second" the holder rose a second finger "they may have some pre-programmed orders, and the presence of the village may interfere with those orders, somehow. I know this is vague, but it's certainly an option.. and third" the rook rose a third finger "they could simply be running wild. I don't think it's the right option, but we shouldn't discard it..." she added to what Allen had said.
"In any case, if we are to see the items now, I suggest..." she wouldn't finish her sentence, as she saw Allen approaching Nuka. Yes, perhaps it was a good moment to check on the runes.
