Indiana moved closer to get a better look at the tablet. He had seen plenty like it, but there was just something different about this one. He knew what it felt like to reclaim something that was once his. He looked around confused. "What's it doing here?" he asked. He knew what the answer would probably be, though. No one seemed to know anything about anything that was going on around the mansion. Not that it was their fault...it was just annoying.
Indiana looked up, shocked, when he heard Pegasus thank him. "You're welcome...," he said, still staring at Pegasus, in shock. Not only had Pegasus indicated that he was thankful, he actually said it! Now this was definitely a first.
A severe pain shot through Indiana's arm again. He looked down and realized that his arm was bleeding. "damn...," he said, kneeling down. He got out some bandages and tried to wrap his arm one handed. After a few minutes, he finally got it.

"I fear.... that it was taken by the servants of Anubis, selling wise, this would not be particularly valuable, I have many more possession in my home that would be, monetary wise anyway," Pegasus commented.
He was amazed at Indiana's suprise, and shock at being thanked. For him that was something second nature. Had it been a rival he may have only given the nod. But Indy-boy wasn't just a rival to him.
He'd noticed Indiana's arm was bleeding as well as feeling some of the pain. "I'd say you should get that looked at but I'm not sure if there's any doctors here," he said with a sigh.

"Oh...,"said Indiana slowly. Great. More people to keep some artifacts from. First the Nazis, who were bad enough, but now these people. And unlike the Nazis, he knew nothing of their tactics, their power. He knew pretty much nothing about them, which did not make him feel any better. "Oh!" he said, as he remembered something. He reached into his side bag and pulled out the dagger. "Here's the dagger," he said, handing it to Pegasus.
Indiana grinned and laughed, slightly. "Yeah, but I doubt if there are any doctors in this place. Besides," he said, cringing from pain,"it barely hurts."

"The fact that I think its safe to assume Anubis or one of his servants gave it back means he feels that me having this is no longer a threat," Pegasus sighed. He slowly took the dagger carefully examining it.
Suddenly he felt it again the feeling of being watched. "Indiana...tell me is there a pair of shining red eyes behind me watching me?" he asked. He knew looking around himself would be no good. If Anubis was watching him then..... he'd move.
Because he knew Anubis would not want to be seen too much by Pegasus. By asking Indiana though, although it was possible he'd not see anything he might just catch Anubis off guard and see him. It depended on just how much the seals had loosened.

As soon as Pegasus grabbed the dagger, Indiana let go of it and used his right arm to grab onto his left arm. It really didn't hurt that bad. He'd had things like this happen before, so he was always prepared for them to happen again. He bent down and undid the latch on his side bag. He pulled out a large sized piece of cloth and tied it around his neck, using it as a sling.
When he heard Pegasus asking him a question, he looked up at him, squinting his eyes. At first, he thought that Pegasus was just joking around, but then he thought about how Pegasus wasn't really the joking around type of guy. He stood up and looked behind Pegasus. "No...I don't see anything," he said. At least, at the time he didn't see any red glowing eyes. They could have disappeared by the time that he looked up.

Pegasus nodded. He would just have to assume, and hope and pray then that Anubis was still that bound. He debated as to whether or not to explain to Indiana why he'd asked that question, deciding against it, for now at least. Maybe later.
It also meant he had a theory forming as to why the spirit of Anubis seemed to be so volatile, here at least. If he was that firmly bound still that he couldn't manifest himself that well here. Then this could be close to Anubis' tomb. A frown marred his face at that thought.
