The Professor sighed for himself, looking at the paints that were decorating the corridor, which was closed off by a heavy stone door after several meters. Was the key to their opening in the art around them? It was possible, but if it was some kind of puzzle, Gabriel couldn't see the solution right away.
He muttered while looking at the paintings
"You are a very beautiful girl and from what I can see also a good person, but it won't do you much good if you won't mind your manners. I mean look at us right now."
He took one of these paintings from its place and put it back almost immediately.
"I know that you are a treasure hunter and that you are planning to steal and sell the amulet. Yet I am still helping you because I believe that you are a genuinely good person who really needs that money."
He didn't add the part where he was planning to send some people to retrieve it afterward.
"But how am I supposed to trust you now, when you are threatening me after I saved you from that spider? I mean a simple thank you would take you a long way…”
He paused, taking another painting, before smiling victoriously.
“But of course…they are in the wrong order, chronologically they should be like this…”
For another few minutes the Professor was running back and forth through the corridor, switching the position of different paintings, until he finally put down the last one. As the frame got to its place a silent clicking sound echoed through the place, followed by a loud rumbling announcing that the doors leading to the next chamber finally opened.
“Not to mention…”
“I am a real gentleman. I would never betray you like that. After you…”
He gestured towards the doors.
