"Er... No. I mean, I could ask someone else to open it but that'd kind of cost more than you're willing to give. But I'll try to scout in there so we won't spend to much time on a diversion when there might be simplier ways in. Please take care of my body"
With that he left the body by using his tempting tounge spell. With this he could slip by the door without opening it and take a look inside. He walked up to the door and entered.
"Use your head fellow student. If there is a basement and it is no other ways than this. How could there passable be any light there if I might ask if there aren't any windows or such? We need someone to open this door for us or we must figure it out how to open it ourself. don't you agree?"
Nikias looked at the chains as he spoke and try to find something unique about it.
Since Ketsuki was on the other side of a thick door and on his way down the stairs he couldn't hear his fellow student. Instead he concentrated on finding whatever was down here, and to see what he could do for whatever or whoever it was. The only thing that bothered him was wether the moron upstairs could take care of his body or if his little cat would eat it.
