Lucius knew that the odds were against him, facing off against the two guards bearing down on him. He was outnumbered, and their weapons were deadlier than his, but he had one chance. If he could bring down one of them at the outset, it would be a more even fight. He lashed out with his blade at the guard on his right, but the guard simply took a step back, laughing.

Lucius completly miss his strike against the guard. He feared his time has come, but he was not about to give up. Has the guard leave him a bit of space after his knife strike Lucius try to locate the secret entrance of Scaevola that Caelia indicated him back at the egyptian palace. It could serve of an escape point or at least a way to fight one on one due to the tight space.
The guard that Lucius had not attacked struck him with one expert slash of his sword, slicing his side wide open. Blood gushed out, and the pain was overwhelming.
The shock and agony of Lucius's wound caused him to collapse and lose consciousness. The other guard, the one who hadn't struck Lucius, stepped over his prone and bleeding form as he slung his sword on his back and rushed down the narrow passage towards Elizabeth and Brook, who were now trapped against the rear wall. Brook crouched beside it with her hands cupped, and she tried to boost Elizabeth up when she stepped in them, but she just wasn't strong enough. Desperately, Elizabeth scrambled up the wall and grabbed onto the top of it, then hoisted herself up so that she straddled it. She could only watch in horror as the guard closed in on Brook, his arms outstretched to grab her...

The guard chasing Brook stopped short, and her knee connected with nothing but air. Then he lunged forward and effortlessly seized her about the waist. "I've got her," he told the guard who had just downed Lucius. "Get the other one!" That guard also stowed his sword and stepped over Lucius, soon reaching the base of the wall where Elizabeth was perched. From there she could see the estate's grounds beyond it, and another wall bordering the estate not far away.
