Are was interrupted by a sudden chill from the presence of a demon. Not that he need it to know about it as the demon made its presence easily detected by its entrance. He turned around as he heard Mulberry shouted and confirmed the demonic entity. Grotesque face, check. Oversized muscles, check. Optional pair of horns, check. The demon growled before started to charge towards him and the Sentinel. Are saw as the demon's stunted hind legs clawed on the wooden surface as its huge upper-body trashed the corridor to fit itself in.
Not willing to get so up close with the demon, Are made some more distance between it and him by going backwards and towards the stair, following Mulberry. He bent his legs a little before leaping to the second floor, narrowly missing the ceiling and leaving a gust of wind behind him. He then turned to face the demon as it made another loud growl as its prey went out of reach and doubled its effort to reach them. It wouldn't be long until it reach them where they are.
Are glanced at Mulberry as he drew his sword with one hand, "I guess it's not too late to say that whatever happened here has to be because of the book?" After all, the timing was far too much of a coincidence to be a random attack.
