Whatever the reason the rider was in such a hurry to get to the District for, they had to find that key. Cinnamon walked along the wall, searching, but it was the warrior who spotted something first. The Reploid got closer and saw what he had found. A nail? In a place that a nail like it wouldn't normally be. Attached to it was a string, and on that string...

"Is that the key?" If so, then they found it! There shouldn't be any other kinds of keys dangling in strange places like this. Nobody would leave a key out in a place where it would easily get lost or stolen. So this had to be the key that they were looking for.

"If the key's here..." Cinnamon paused as she processed her thoughts. "...then the chest shouldn't be too far away." The Goddess was mean sometimes, but she always seemed to give people a fighting chance. There wouldn't be much fun in putting the chest somewhere really, really far away, where anyone who found the key wouldn't be able to travel to it in time. The chest had to be somewhere the person with the key could reach it.

The chest should be near; Cinnamon was right. They had found the key, so now the priority was to get the chest as quickly as possible.

"Cinnamon, locate the chest while I pull the key up," he ordered. It would be a lot better for them if one of them did one task and the other did the second task. It would move things a lot faster.

The string that held up the key was thin and light. That was worrisome to Dovahkiin as he could feel the weight of the key readily on the string. It was heavier than the string should have been allowed to carry. If he dropped it, it would mean having to go to the other side of the wall to try and find it.

He took it gingerly in his fingers, a task that was only comfortable to him as he had spent his share of time lockpicking, which was a delicate procedure. Very carefully, he started to haul the key up.

There was a shout from below, causing Dovahkiin to look over his shoulder. Something was moving on the horizon.

The titan was approaching.

"Okay..." It had to be nearby. Cinnamon was sure of that. She looked around, peering over the wall a few times in case it was located somewhere over the edge and had to be climbed to. If it was, then she had no idea if she could reach it. Cinnamon didn't think she would be a very good climber.

Fortunately, she didn't have to do any climbing at all.

Cinnamon spotted a piece of the wall that didn't look quite right to her. As she got closer, she realized it wasn't part of the wall at all, but some kind of camouflage. She got her fingers around the edges and pulled it up, and hiding underneath was a chest. There would be only one reason why a chest was up here.

"Mister!" she called, waving to him. "I found it!" And not a moment too soon - a large being appeared on the horizon.

Dovahkiin pulled the string carefully, moving it slowly inch by inch. It seemed like it was going very slowly, and time was passing by in just the same way. He didn't like it, but he still didn't want to risk dropping the key at any point. He would have to climb over the wall and use one of his Shouts to stop the drop from being damaging.

Dovahkiin made a quick glance over his shoulder. That titan.... it was a lot closer to the District than it had been a moment before. It was jogging now.

Shit.

"Faster, dammit," he muttered to himself as he continued to pull the key up. In a moment - a moment that felt too long - Dovahkiin had the key in his hand.

He dropped the string and stood away from the wall. "Catch!" he said, tossing the key Cinnamon's way. He was already turning back to look at the titan. He was drawing his sword, ready to head that way, just in case he needed to book it over that way as quickly as possible.

The titan already looked like it was picking up speed...

Cinnamon was surprised that something of that size could move so quickly. To her, it didn't look like it should move that quickly at all... maybe she had read too many stories of giants slowly lumbering around. The people down below were really starting to move now, either in panic or preparing for battle.

She instantly moved when the warrior called to her, catching the key he had thrown.

Cinnamon turned and knelt in front of the chest, pushing the key into the lock. She turned it and heard a click. As soon as she did, she put both hands on the lid of the chest and swung it open, just as the giant creature was reaching the wall.

Suddenly, the titan was gone.

"Is it over...?" Cinnamon asked as she rose to her feet, staring at where danger once was, as if she couldn't quite believe that her optical sensors were working right. Something that large and scary shouldn't just vanish into thin air. But if the Goddess wanted it to...

Would Whirlwind Sprint be helpful in getting him across from the side of the district to the next. He would have to sprint and jump along the tops of the houses as well, and make it to the other side. He might need to keep his shield away for that; it was more difficult to do the running motion he needed to do when he was using Whirlwind Sprint.

He didn't bother putting his shield away. The titan was getting closer by the second.

Instead, he used his Shout, sending him straight off the wall and onto the building past the next. He crouched down, needing to gather up the strength in his legs to make the leap to the next building - there was a good distance between them.

He looked up though and saw that the titan was gone. Instantly, he looked back around to see Cinnamon. He wasn't sure if she had unlocked the chest, but he used Whirlwind Sprint to get himself back onto the wall, sheathing the sword in the process. He was only able to catch a glimpse of the chest before it disappeared from sight.

"I guess that means we've accomplished our mission," Dovahkiin said, turning to look back out across to where the titan had been only moments before.

Where did... oh, there he was. Cinnamon wasn't sure how the man was doing that. She thought she heard... shouting? But she couldn't decipher the words.

She heard the words he then spoke normally, though. "Yes," she nodded. "I think so." The titan had disappeared, and even the chest was gone now. If they haven't done what they had set out to do, then the titan should still be here, everyone should still be yelling and running around, and the chest wouldn't have disappeared like it had. Cinnamon turned to look out at where the titan once stood, and she smiled.

"We did good." She said it with certainty. This District was one of many areas on this planet, and there were many more keys to find and chests to open. But they had accomplished their goal, taken one small step towards completing this new set of challenges. That was important, and Cinnamon felt like she did something to help everyone.

So, they had accomplished the task that had been set out before them, and they had done so before the titan had even made it towards the wall. He felt relieved over it, more so than he normally did in situations like this one. There had been too many people in the district for him to be able to feel at ease. If the titan had made it to the wall, death would have surely followed.

But, they had stopped that from happening, probably from completing the challenge in record time. For that, they needed to feel lucky.

"I'm going to go check the area outside of the District," he said. He wanted to check it, just in case this had all been some trick. "Go out and make sure no one got hurt in that scramble." Some people might have been too... excited in their search for the key and chest. Cinnamon had healing capabilities; it would be a good use of her time to go and make sure no one had gotten hurt.

With that, he Shouted himself back the way he had originally been planning on going. Time to make sure that titan was truly dead.
