Raphael continued on his way as silently as possible, though it was more out of habit than any real desire to avoid detection. Despite the few people in the main hallway, the stairwell itself was silent and empty; anyone who'd been here had likely already left, if he wasn't the first person to come this way at all. He took the stairs two at a time, impatient with losing any more time, but with each footfall, he had to wonder what the hell he was doing. Any idiot could see that the whole training thing was just another way of wasting time here. A way to pretend like they were doing something worthwhile and that any day now they'd all be out of here and home free. Hell, he didn't think he'd seen a single good plan on how to get out of here, even though it seemed like everyone talked about having one. Even Pinky had been on like her team had some way out they were working on, and then what? They get sent picking up goddamn books on medicine. He could get it was important, but that kind of stuff? It wasn't what you did if you didn't think you were going to be around for a while.

His mind still caught up in these thoughts, Raphael left the stairwell on autopilot, pausing only long enough to flick his flashlight off again and allow his eyes to readjust before moving out into the hallway.

Entering the stairwell, Edgar shined his light up the passage, keeping his eyes peeled for anything that might have been waiting for them. The bulb in his light flickered oddly, returning to its full brightness after a second. The machinist gave it a shake, wondering if the power cells were giving out. He had another set in his drawer- he'd be sure to change them before his next outing.

"A temple, huh?" he asked. "What was it used for?"

"For...praying?" Yuna answered as she followed him up. "It's where the fayth are, and the statues of previous High Summoners—is something wrong with your light?"

Yuna supposed, if Edgar's light went out, that they could make do with one light tube. Though that...depended on what was causing it. For all she knew, Yuna's might go out at any time, too. That wouldn't be good. For now though, it didn't look like it was.... Yuna looked at the beam warily as they stepped out of the stairwell.
