"Like I said, when we're all rigged up." She didn't snap at Riesy or Doc. They were probably equally freaked out. She could hold it together and not snap at anyone. She was an adult! But they were burning daylight out there. It was edging closer to ten in the morning and they still had to pass the invisible monster and hunt down the damn book in the house. With the early winter sunsets they had maybe five hours of solid daylight left, another hour of uncomfortably dim twilight. They were running out of time.

Doc opted to ignore Riesy's comment about music, as him and music fell solidly into the category of 'none of their damn business'

Eve gave a soft little huff as she watched the group. <You know, I always expected my death would be about this unlucky,> she observed while they waited, knowing only Doc could hear her. <More normal, but about this unlucky. It's Fisher, you know. My last name. I've avoided going into the water so that particular irony couldn't take me out, and yet here I am... getting ready to possibly drown in sand. Linoleum sand.> She laid her head down on his shoulder and watched the others tying rope and getting read to set out. <Anyway, if I don't make it out of here, you can tell someone who I was.>

Doc put a large hand on her back, solid and warm and reassuring.  "Ain't no one gonna let you drown in the quicksand, Eve Fisher.  Gonna get you rigged up so even'f you fall in, we'll pull y'out."

Tanner blushed all the more brightly, but checked his harness as he was instructed.

“Think it’s fine,” he said, keeping his head down.

<Evarea,> she admitted, barely a thought. <No one calls me that, no one really knows, but that's it. Eve's just easier.>

Doc gently took Eve's tiny paw in two fingers, shaking hands.  "Daniel Little.  Nice to meet you, Evarea."

Eve extended her claws just enough to hold onto his thumb, not enough to latch on. <You too, Daniel.>

Riesy rocked back to full height once Tanner was secure, then cut him loose from the rest of the rope as well. S/he stretched it over shiz spread arms to measure and had to pause and stifle a laugh at Doc and Eve. S/he leaned in to Tanner to get his attention and pointed with shiz chin while she cut the rope and offered a section to Lilybeth to tie herself in while s/he did the same with a few quick flips of the rope. S/he sliced off a last section that s/he hoped would be long enough.

"Eve can you hop down again so I can rig you?" S/he asked. Once the cat was in front of shim, s/he knelt and started wrapping the rope around the barrel of her chest to measure.

Doc folded his huge arms over his barrel chest.  "Y'aint gonna rope her like that, are ya?" he growled menacingly.

"Sure am," Riesy chirped back, "mostly cause I don't think I can tie her to my belt loop by her tail."

S/he found s/he had plenty for what s/he wanted to tie, so s/he slid the rope free from around Eve's chest and sat back to cut it into two and tie it in a way that would not choke her. "Two seconds," S/he said to Eve.

<One. Two,> Eve counted to Doc, and then stepped forward with no intention of actually leaving, just to see Riesy squawk about it for ribbing Doc.

As Riesy finished tying him off, she bumped him with her hip; he glanced up, catching the upraised tilt of her chin and following her gaze to where Eve and Doc were apparently shaking hands.

Which was entirely, ridiculously cute, not that he thought either one of them would appreciate him saying so. He ducked his head again, mostly to hide a smile, and fussed with his harness, giving a few careful tugs just to make sure it was as secure as it looked.

He didn’t exactly want to count on luck, if any of them slipped again.

"Hey, Jesus! I'm trying to do this right, not rushed, c'mon, despite what some people may think, I am a professional. Look," S/he held out the harness so that the loops dangled. "All done and all for you." S/he jerked it back and held out a finger. "No claws."

Doc chuckled as Riesy protested, giving Eve an approving nod.

Eve held still for Riesy to apply the harness, keeping her claws in and feet on the ground unless directed otherwise. As soon as it was applied and tested, she stood there very stiffly before just kind of... falling over as her keen cat instincts told her it's over you're trapped this is how it ends can't move dying. Then it passed, and she scrabbled to her feet, still walking a little awkwardly. Rope did not make for an excellent cat harness. Cats did not belong in harnesses.

<Yeah... this is every bit as terrible as I expected. Cool.> She wriggled a little, trying to get comfortable, and then gave up and headed back to jump to Doc's shoulder again.

Riesy almost fell over laughing. "Can you do that little dance again? That was great." S/he giggled a little more, then popped up to shiz feet. "Thanks, Eve. Needed that. Let's get the fuck out of here." S/he shouldered shiz pack.

Once Eve was securely in place on his shoulder and attached to his own harness, Doc strode across the aisle, the center square close enough to either side that he barely had to stretch.

"Such a poet, Riesy," Isabelle said and aimed for the red tile and onward.

"Just like leapfrog," she called over her shoulder.

Please don't let this be how I die, she thought fervently. And leapt.

"See!" she called across the aisle, "easy!" She hoped they couldn't see how her knees were shaking and that Doc wouldn't comment on it and sell her out.

Lilybeth watched carefully as Doc and then Izzy lept out, took a deep breath, and jumped...

...she landed solidly in the center of the aisle and let out a deep breath. Maybe this wouldn't be so bad after all.
