Aestus knew this was a dangerous situation, this girls were dangerous, and for what he saw just now, they were the textbook example of a demon, and scared the shit out the young knight, who sepnt most of his years as a knight and a squire fighting against magical beast or berserker golems, he never fought against a demon, but most of the information about them indicated that they were bad news, real bad news. He didnt knew what to do, he hoped that Celatus was here, his mentor would tell him what to do, but that was only a stupid wish, as he was exiled, and he wont ever put a step on Terra Magus again. In this mental struggle he was having, a small sparkle of light appeared, and ignited an idea, the amulet was a holy object, blessed by Lucel himself, part of the Sacra Alba Corona, the three more powerful artifacts left by Lucel in this world, if he could get to the chamber, the amulet sheer aura would surely weaken the twins, and maybe he could defeat them there, and as that was the best idea he had he would bet on it.
Okay you got me there, he said in a feigned cheerful voice as he raised his hands, I could never deceive girls so beautiful as you, I'm terrbile sorry for that lie, I was sent to protect the amulet, but I decided not to take orders anymore, could you forgive me if I show you the way to the amulet? he tried to look as joyful as possible to erradicate any suspiction that the demon twins could have
Aestus was shocked by the words of the girls, he stood with a surpised expression for a moment, and his surprise increased as he saw them walking throught the flames, as if the bonfire wasnt there. He had a bad feeling about this, he was facing two girls with an apparent inmunity to the heat and they were searching for the amulet too. He tried to deceive the pair, I dont know what you're talking about, I'm only making a camp to stay this night here and the I will keep traveling, I've never heard of any amulet or anything like it. He hoped that the demoniac twins didnt discover that he was lying, he wasnt a good liar, and being nervous for the surprising words of the girls wasnt helping him too much to keep his cool. As he hoped he also started on a tactic or a strategy to beat them in case of a confrontation, since it seemed they could withstand his Magic attacks with ease.
