Reina flinched back, away from the rush of violence that swept from the alleyway and into the street.

Her three would-be rescuers were fighting valiantly, and doing well despite the odds. She had hoped to outrun the pack of predators chasing her because she was certain that no one confronted by them would seriously entertain the idea of resisting. Not for her sake. Not for the sake of a total stranger. But these three were proving her wrong. They were fighting.

So the least she could do was fight, too.

A pair of hands gripped her shoulder, yanking her back towards one of the vans. Reina span with the helmet in her hands and the hardened plastic cracked against the skull of her attacker. She was small and exhausted and not particularly strong, so she doubted she could do much to turn the tide of the fight but at least she could make life harder for their enemies.

Tsubasa's opponent fell beneath her hail of blows only for another to take his place with a wild swipe of a metal bat. The leather-clad thug charging Saito let out a growl of pain and tumbled, still swinging with the wicked-looking club in his hand. The pain only seemed to spur him on because he limped forward despite his crippled foot, glaring with a wild-eyed look of utter fury.

They were putting up a strong resistance, but Reina was sure it would only be a matter of time before they were overwhelmed and worn down by the sheer volume of assailants falling upon them. It was only in movies where the plucky underdogs came out on top.

She barely understood Aiko's warning, but out of shock more than anything else she screwed her eyes shut and braced herself. Perhaps this girl possessed some extremely destructive esper power that could save them? She had heard one of the Level 5s could do something with lasers? Maybe this girl was her? Had she been lucky enough to run across the legendary Meltdowner in her time of need?

The flash of blinding light might not have lived up to Reina's desperate hopes, but it served its purpose well enough. The Skill Outs surrounding them were ill prepared for the surprise and the majority of them staggered, dazzled for that brief moment.

A window of opportunity had opened, however slight.

While Tsubasa was fighting, she noticed that the Tokiwadai girl was slowly but steadily approaching them.

"When I say 'Now', close your eyes for 1 second"

‘Huh, does she have some kind of plan?’, she wondered.

When the dancing girl stood up again after her previous acrobatics, a Skill-Out was already swinging his bat at her, but she managed to dodge it on time as she leaned backwards. The bat did scratch her jacket, though.

‘Woops, that was close!!’

Meanwhile, a scream reached her ears from a close distance:

"NOW!"

Tsubasa thankfully registered what that was signaling, and she quickly shut her eyes, praying inside that the girl acted quickly and did whatever trick she had on her sleeves before the guy in front of her smashed her head in pieces while she was not looking.

Just a second later, she could hear the surprised screams. She slowly opened her eyes, and upon seeing the scene in front of her, a bunch of people staggering, she realised that they couldn’t see. She whistled in amazement.

"Heeeh~ Nicely done~"

This was their chance to escape. They had little time to act, so they had to make the most of it if they wanted to leave this place in one piece.

“Quick! We need to get the hell out of here!”, she yelled as she reached out to hold Reina’s hand. She run to the bike while dragging the other girl.

She remembered however that it would be kind of cowardly to leave the other two behind. But unfortunately her bike only had place for two people. It was impossible to carry any more than that…  

“Sorry! You two gotta find some other way! Dunno! Steal a van or something!”, she apologized awkwardly.

“And you”, she spoke to Reina,”Put that helmet on your head and hold on tightly. Do not let go. Really, don't. Unless you want to fall down.”

Knowing that their lives depended on it, she accelerated and drove away as fast as she humanly could. The bike was creating its escape path by jumping off the roof of a van to gain some distance and momentum and then swiftly navigating between the tight spaces the last vans had created against each other. Tsubasa kept her manoeuvers at full speed until the previous view was all left behind.

Post  Hujisaka Natsumi on Thu Dec 26, 2019 3:48 pm

August 20th, 10:47 A.M, District "??"

Long strands of brown hair fluttered along with the occasional breezes of wind. The fairly petite girl to whom it belonged was quietly strolling in the streets of Academy City, no longer able to distinguish what district she wandered in as she continually lost herself in her thoughts.

Last she had been here, she had been involved in a massive incident and had almost been found out by the person she absolutely did not want to cross for the time being. As such, she had left Academy City for a little over two weeks, while the situation blew over.

The most curious part was the ease with which she had managed to return; after all, the likes of her were scarcely welcomed in Academy City given that she wasn’t a student, much less an Esper. Had there been a use for her planned that justified the tolerance of her presence, or did the higher-ups simply not care?

Yes, as a magician, Hujisaka Natsume was what you would usually consider a persona non grata, rather than the guest she seemed to be. She didn’t want to attract ill will by being overly suspicious, but it was quite odd that there were periods where entry to Academy City seemed to be highly restricted, and others were like open doors.

She sighed, coming at a halt as she finally decided to put the matter aside for now.

There was a much pressing one, anyway, she figured as she confusedly turned her head about.

Where was she, anyway?

Post  Saito Hirashi on Fri Dec 27, 2019 8:39 am

“Now!”

No More Hoodie Girl played her card in the form of a blinding flash, even through closed eyelids, Hirashi’s saw stars after the blast. The thugs, who were caught face-first, were expectedly worse off, they were blinded and disoriented. If they were to make a move, now would be the time.

Sorry! You two gotta find some other way! Dunno! Steal a van or something!”

And the moves were made, the Mad Biker stayed true to their namesake and nabbed Gown Girl whilst performing some truly impressive maneuvers on her motorcycle to make their getaway. Hirashi did not even have the time to be annoyed before their silhouette disappeared in a cloud of dust.

“Well, there they go. I thought Mad Biker was supposed to be the “Justice for All” type…” Hirashi mumbled as he thought of his next step.

With Gown Girl out of the picture, Hirashi had no more reasons to continue making a stand, and neither do the Skill Outs. These thugs must be under the employment of someone, it would be highly improbable for this many thugs to risk death just to capture one girl. This means he might be able to talk his way out of this.

“Hey you.” Hirashi called out to the thug he just injured, who at this point was still blinded. “Surely you heard that motorcycle driving away. You may not be able to see, but that Mad Biker and your mark had just left us in the dust. I do not want to fight you over nothing, and surely your employer would not be happy to hear you lost your mark because you were fighting over nothing. If you agree to this, I’ll even give you the cash I have on me as compensation for your foot, do we have a deal?”

Post  Aoki Aiko on Fri Dec 27, 2019 4:05 pm

It worked. Her flash of light had left the skill outs temporarily blinded and dazed but the effect wouldn't last long.

"Heeeh~ Nicely done~" The biked said seeming somewhat amused. Aiko was relieved that it looked like the small group seemed to all have heard her warning and heeded her signal.

“Sorry! You two gotta find some other way! Dunno! Steal a van or something!”

With that the biker pulled the girl in the hospital gown onto their motorcycle and started to make their escape.

“Surely you heard that motorcycle driving away. You may not be able to see, but that Mad Biker and your mark had just left us in the dust. I do not want to fight you over nothing, and surely your employer would not be happy to hear you lost your mark because you were fighting over nothing. If you agree to this, I’ll even give you the cash I have on me as compensation for your foot, do we have a deal?”


It seemed like the her impound lot buddy was trying to negotiate with the Skill Outs to let them go. Aiko could only imagine that going one way. There were enough of them that they could still go after the girl and fight the two of the them to get rid of witnesses. From their brief scuffle before, Aiko could tell that the only one of them that was probably good in a brawl was the biker who had just escaped. Another strategy would be needed here... maybe just what the biker had suggested.

"I doubt negotiation will work, there's more then enough of them to take us out and follow the girl," Aiko whispered to her ally. "I have an idea, follow me if you can."

Without waiting for a response, Aiko shifted her shell again while shrinking it so just her and the boy fit inside. All light trying to leave would now be blocked from doing so. From the outside, just a dome of darkness. Aiko sprinted forward in the direction the biker had driven off to where the vans were blocking the road. They had to move quick before the skill outs recovered. The dome was just there to add more confusion once the blindness wore off. With some luck, the boy had followed her and the skill out morons had left the vans idling.

Aiko could here the screams of the skill outs as she jumped into the drivers seat and threw the vehicle into drive. Flooring the gas, she took off after the biker.

"Hey you can shoot things right?" Aiko inquired of the boy now in the passenger's seat. "Can you take out the tires of the vans still there. We should be able to stop them from following us."

With that, Aiko was in full concentration mode. She was a middle school student. At Tokiwadai sure, but still a middle school student. She had never driven a car before in her life. Her driving experience could easily be summed up as watching it done in movies and the occasional video game. If they didn't crash by the end of this, she swore her licence would be her next goal. Her heart was beating faster and faster in her chest as she attempted to catch up to the biker. Luckily she could still see them a ways ahead. Aiko managed to keep the vehicle going in a straight line, although not without wiggles and shakes. Hopefully no turns came too quickly in this escape.

"W-wait!" Reina staggered behind Tsubasa before being pulled onto the motorcycle. She could only stare, bewildered and a little concerned at the other two quickly vanishing into the distance behind them. "Aren't we going to save them?" She could barely gasp out against the wind as she clung to the biker's waist with all her strength.

Hirashi's pleas had fallen on deaf ears, however, and the Skill Out blinked against the spots of white filling his sight, rubbing his eyes with one hand while he brandished his weapon in wild, feral swings in the direction of the voice that grated in his ears. He clearly was not in the mood for negotiations.

The gathered thugs were on the edge of regaining their vision when Aiko sent the van squealing off in a wheelspin. Against common sense and self-preservation, the half-blind delinquents tumbled into the remaining vehicles which sped off after Aiko and Hirashi. Several didn't make it in time, stumbling and cursing as they ran after the vehicles.

"Fuck. If we don't get her back Kurama's gonna have our heads." The driver of the first van clutched the wheel with a white-knuckled grip. He heard something approaching like the distant roar of a jet engine.

The blur shook the van as it ripped past. Like a streak of lightning, it tore past Aiko and Hirashi, speeding towards the motorcycle and the two girls riding it. It was difficult to see at that speed, but it appeared to be shaped like a person...

***

Though she had no way of knowing it, Natsume's legendary sense of direction had led her to District 19, a virtual ghost town within the otherwise bustling metropolis.

"E-excuse me, miss?" A small, timid voice called out to Natsume. With the streets being so empty, it could only have been directed at her. After a little searching, she would have been able to pinpoint the owner of that voice as a small boy who looked no more than 9. The boy was wearing what appeared to be a private school's uniform, with neatly pressed shorts and blazer that looked out of place amongst his run down surroundings. "I'm lost." He was very obviously trying to suppress his sniffling sobs. "Can you..." His voice became quieter, as though he was struggling to find the courage to speak.

"Aren't we going to save them?", the girl clinging to her questioned her decision.

Tsubasa was in no place to argue, for she knew that what she did was cowardly. The other two have also risked their lives to help. Yet here she was, leaving them to their own destiny.

However...

"Don't worry. They're smart. They'll find a way out safely."

That's right. Even though she has just met them, she could feel that they had experience with this kind of situation before. Especially that Tokiwadai girl. She had the eyes of someone whose life is danger itself.

'They can make it out alive. Definitely.', she tried reassuring herself.

Barely a few seconds later, she noticed that they're being followed by a van, and a certain girl was sitting in the driver seat, while a certain boy was next to her. Watabe could only burst in laughter, expressing her relief.

"Hahaha! Look who's behind us! See?! I told ya!", she told Reina. But in reality, those words were also meant for herself.

Although there were a couple of other Skill-Out vans following them, she had confidence that they could lose those quite easily.

But then, suddenly, she heard something approaching from behind with a strong roar. At first she dismissed it as another vehicule, but when she turned around, she was shocked to see a human silhouette approaching them with superhuman speed.

'W-what the fuck is that?!'

It was all a blur at this speed so she couldn't tell if it was a humanoid machine or an esper. But she knew one thing:

This was bad news for everyone involved.

Ba-dump ba-dump ba-dump...

Her heart started beating furiously, her face paled, her forehead became sweaty and her hands shaky. She was terrified. Her instincts screamed for her to run away.

'Faster! Faster!!', she tried accelerating even more...

But it was all in vain, her bike's maximum speed seemed to be a joke compared to the one approaching...

Hirashi narrowly avoided the weapon and took a step back, it looked like No More Hoodie Girl was correct in assuming the thugs would not be interested in settling their differences over tea.

With no better plan of his own, Hirashi winded up taking the girl’s lead and soon found himself beside her in one of the thugs’ vans.

"Hey you can shoot things right? Can you take out the tires of the vans still there. We should be able to stop them from following us."

After issuing his task, No More Hoodie Girl proceeded to launch the vehicle violently towards the rapidly disappearing Mad Biker and Gown Girl.

Hirashi took a quick inventory, he had five nails initially, but fired one as a warning and one more to avoid the thug’s attack. This means he had more targets then he had ammunition.

“I can only hit three of them,” Hirashi responded over the tortured roaring of the van’s engine, “I can make do with these coins but there will be no guarantee these will pierce the tires. I believe I should hold on to these until we are certain we will need to use them.”

Hirashi was barely able to finish his sentence before something blitzed past the van, shaking it. Hirashi tried to make sense of what just happened, it appeared to be a  humanoid silhouette, very fast, and headed towards the motorbike in front of them.

Hirashi groaned inwardly, he has had just about enough with all these anomalies appearing all around him lately. For a moment he wished everything would just go to plan for once.

After mentally yelling and rolling around his seat, Hirashi decided not to engage the newcomer. Its allegiances was still unknown and he doubted he’s be able to damage it anyway, but he readied a nail just in case.

The human-shaped blur easily reached the motorcycle, pulling ahead for a second before drifting back to match its pace with the vehicle. The long streak of golden light that followed it shortened as if finally catching up to itself, revealing the youthful, handsome face of a boy with honey-colored hair and brightly glowing red eyes.

The one racing alongside Tsubasa and Reina turned to look at the two girls with an easy smile. The affectionless smile was less disconcerting than the fact that he did not even appear to be exerting any effort to keep pace with them. In fact his long, charging steps resembled the smooth glide of an ice skater.

Though they likely couldn't hear him over the roar of the wind whipping past their heads, he opened his mouth to speak.

"I'll be taking that back." He reached for Reina's arm with an open hand.
