ADAM
Adam did not have his horse in Caido, and he sorely missed the old idiot. Flash had been with him for a lot of years, through a lot of trials and adventures and raids; he could only hope he had been looked after since Adam had been taken to the Hollowed Grounds. Most of all he missed riding, doing all the stupid tricks he'd learnt to show off; missed the thrill of going as fast as they could then taking a leap.

To keep his muscles active and his skills alive, he took to sometimes climbing and wandering about in the ruins, flipping and running as often as he could, using his long fingers to grasp to ancient stone.

On this day he was up on a high beam resting between two pillars, walking on his hands. His brow was creased in frustration but his form was neat, his feet pressed close above him and legs lined up. His shirt was puffed uo down to his chin, something he would care about if he thought anyone was looking. With a grunt of effort, he flipped himself around, his legs coming down until he was stood on the beam, smiling with his hands on his hips.
good evening, misadventure.
farewell morality.
it's time for another risky venture,
into the depths of depravity.
Please note Adam has 5 large scars across his neck and chin.

Lucas
clever as the devil and twice as pretty
"Oh bravo, bravo indeed!" Lucas might have drawled the compliment, and his applause might have been slow and deliberately sarcastic, but he was actually pretty impressed with this would-be highwayman and his tricks. He strolled casually beneath where Adam had been walking (on his hands, then his feet), drawing to a halt and gazing up at him with a tilt of his head.

"Now, it's hardly any fun unless there's a little danger, eh? Though I'm sure you would know all about that." Glancing sideways, Lucas spotted a good deal of very throwable looking pebbles. Would Adam mind if he used him as target practice while he did his balancing act?

They might well find out.

ADAM
The sudden voice surprised Adam but he determinedly didn't jump, just crossed his arms and smirked as Lucas came into view. His...coworker..? Boss..? Was not an unwelcome sight; Adam found the man to be deliciously dangerous in the way that promised a whole load of fun and adventure. Though a part of him didn't trust the devil; probably because Adam very rarely trusted anyone.

And also he was, you know, self-admittedly the devil.

"Well, depends on what the danger is. If it's cool sexy danger that'll rip my clothes off and get me sweaty, sure. If it's danger that'll break my leg, less so." He moved to sit down on the beam, legs dangling. "How about we make it a competition instead? Get up here with half the style I did and I'll...do something for you, I dunno. We'll start at a compliment and end at sucking your dick. Your choice."

A competition? As if Lucas could even hope to resist. "Cool, sexy danger? You know, Adam, I think I would have thoroughly enjoyed meeting you in your own world," he said with a wry smile, tilting his head and hearing the other man out about his challenge. Could he walk on his hands up to where Adam was currently perched? Probably not. But he could put on a show, at least.

As Lucas moved, his shadows exploded out and around him, all three dancing and cartwheeling and rushing at the other man in an attempt to startle him at best. In the meantime, whilst he wasn't able to use his enhanced speed, exactly, Lucas still made it up to join the ex-highwayman in good time. Once there, of course, one of his shadows tried to nudge Adam off the beam.

"Ta da." He shrugged.

ADAM
"You can thoroughly enjoy me in this one too. I'm still good shit." Adam insisted with a little laugh, puffing his chest out and putting a hand to his heart proudly.

There was no more quips when Lucas suddenly exploded out three shadows and rushed towards him, the shock of the sudden magic dulling his senses that would have helped him to move out of the way. He swayed when he was shoved, his mind only coming back to him in that moment.

"..Ho...how did you do that?" He asked, then without an answer turned to Lucas excitedly. "If I teach you how to climb properly, can you teach me how to do that?"

"Oh I don't doubt it for a second," Lucas teased, though given their shared history so far, the Ascended really had no reason not to believe it. Impressed by the fact that Adam was impressed (perhaps they were more alike than he had initially thought), if Lucas had been wearing a tie, he'd have straightened it for effectiveness.

"Hm... teach you...? I don't think it is something that it can be taught, sorry. It's a gift from a goddess." He shrugged.

"How about, though, I test my shadows against your ability to climb, and we can see how good you really are." If Adam thought a little shove was all Lucas could do, he'd be very mistaken.

ADAM
A gift from a Goddess..? Adam was jealous. He'd had his own gift from a God but it had hardly been as cool as independant shadows, and he'd had it stolen by a well-meaning friend lost it. He wondered if going to pray at a shrine with a specific thing in mind would get him it. Next time he prayed, he would try and think very hard about the ability to appear in any room with a sick guitar riff.

"A challenge, huh? Hell yeah." He jumped up to his feet, remarkable balance on the beam with his feet squarely on it. "Gimme the rules." Whatever it was, he knew he was good at climbing and speed. Even with Lucas' magical shadows, he thought he stood a chance.

A fanged grin flashed across Lucas's face as he watched Adam spring to his feet, and he folded his arms across his chest even as his three shadows danced and twisted of their own volition. "Very well. Rules are: I can't touch you myself, I can only use my shadows. And you can only avoid them - no throwing stuff at me, got it?" He winked.

"I'll try and stay at least ten feet behind you, too. That way I'll always have to fight to be in reach of you. Nothing like a little creativity to get the blood pumping, eh?" With a dark laugh, Lucas stepped back and gestured elegantly for Adam to begin whenever he felt ready.

ADAM
Adam accepted the rules with a nod; it was a challenge of speed and agility, not strength. He was gifted with long legs and a wiry frame and liked to think he had a decent chance to win, even if Lucas had magical shadows on his side.

To begin with he took a moment to idle and look across the ruins, see a path - then he was off, jumping from the beam to a roof nearby, across that and up a pillar, swinging off a beam; pretending he was escaping from a crowd of guards like he had many times before, not daring to look behind him in case he saw the wrong side of a blade coming down towards his head.

"C'mon then!" He yelled, dropping down a level and sliding along a smooth stone surface to hug a wall, trying to hide for a moment and see where Lucas was.

Adam saw a path and Lucas saw Adam, the Ascended flashing a fanged grin that was, for once, pure enjoyment as the other man hopped away over the rooftops. He was quick, agile and had no fear of falling - a perfect partner in something like this.

Giving him a moment or so for a headstart, Lucas wasn't long in following. Adam might have been foolhardy, but his pursuor did not feel pain or need to breathe, so it was a rather good match if you asked him. Still, eventually Lucas did break into a run, dropping down the level after Adam and letting his shadows dart out ahead. He couldn't see through them, so the one that skittered above the other man's head would not catch him out - but it was an early warning that the Ascended was very much on his tail.
