The darkness that crept through the ruins was truly horrifying, the blood red of the runes surprising the girl, as the ancient stone around her cracked. This was not right, this was... Well, she was not sure what it was. As the being formed in the center of the circle, she could see that it looked like a man, and it could speak, but... This could not possibly be a guardian. No, she had made a very grave mistake.
Sliding down to the cold ground, the girl grabbed at her head, her fingers pulling on her golden hair in frustration, "No, no, no! Damnit!" Which rune had she gotten wrong, which spiral was curved the wrong way, what line was not complete? Had she spoken the words wrong? Why could nothing ever go right? She didn't have time for this, the glow of the runes had been so bright, someone must have surely seen them in the distance. The soldiers could be swarming the ruins any second now.
She took a deep breath, lifting her head as she studied the demon, relieved to see that he could not step out of the circle. He certainly looked angry, and that really was not a good sign. Maybe it was not a guardian, but it was still something. It was better than nothing, which is what she would have, if she ran away now.
"Okay, listen," Swallowing hard, the girl pulled herself back onto her feet, trying to regain some form of control. It was probably best not to let the creature realize that she was terribly frightened right now; first impressions were everything.
"I need you to stop yelling. You're going to give us away." Her voice a little calmer now, she took a step closer, certain of the barrier's protection, "You're going to help me." The spell was not complete yet, it was waiting. If she knew how to banish him now, she would. But it took so long to draw the summoning circle, and she had precious little time. And without scrutinizing the runes now, she would have no chance of finding the mistake. To re-do it in a safer place could end up with her summoning something much, much worse.
"We're going to make a delivery." The girl tapped her finger against the invisible barrier, causing it to shimmer and dissipate.
