Of course, the path of violence had been the only outcome of this situation. Adjusting to the not all too sudden shift of the odds, Stella only let an amused chuckle escape her lips, before assuming a posture to invite in the vicious striker with open arms.

Truly a madwoman, or not?

«40-60~♫»

After swift dance of her right hand, the ground around Stella’s feet malformed the very moment the nun in red arrived and when it did it, the attacker immediately lost any stable groundwork, as though she was trapped in quick sand. However, unlike quick sand the mass surrounding her was far heavier, essentially weighing down upon her plenty fold.

«My my my. What a foolish girl you are. Attacking without understanding the attacked?»

However, a true artist did not dare to leave things like that.

«60-40~♫»

Even more sudden than it had initially malformed, the matter that had been the floor twisted and gathered explosively with Sasha at its core, launching the full brunt of it at her from all sides, left, right, front, back, below and above, as though crushing a can of coke.

It had only been a split second. Just a fraction of a moment, but the foreign stranger had managed to gain enough distance that he not only left Yomikawa's sight, but Gou's as well. The boy, who had no idea of the man's ability, had no reason to suspect the girl who helpfully pointed him in the direction of the fugitive. He doggedly pursued Heinrich, unaware that he had already passed him by.

And by the time Yomikawa arrived, that 'teenage girl' would be long gone...

***

Sasha's lunge had taken her onto the warping ground. It gave way beneath her and she faltered, her strike falling short by the narrowest of margins. The stoic girl frowned, gritting her teeth in a quiet snarl as the twisting ground rose up and enveloped her from all sides in a crushing grip.

But before that earth could bear down on her, three rapid swings carved the rock open as easily as if it had been made of paper.

"That was close, little Sasha. Try to be more careful next time, eh?" The blonde magician twirled a golden sword hilt in his hand from several meters away. "I won't always be around to save you."

It was truly an anticlimax. Those last moments of escape were something that still bored into Sara, like claws of dread from a cat.

And yet…

I’m out.

She didn’t make the mistake of saying that out loud as she had walked out of the arrivals lobby along with the evacuating crowd. She had merely walked apace with the rest of the crowd, simply blending in by looking like one of the many panicked evacuees.

From there, the crowd had split. Some had tried to grab taxis. Others had tried to move to more distant buildings. Taking a moment to keep an eye on the crowd, she moved herself into an alleyway, into a blind spot to the escaping crowd.

With all eyes off her, she used the walls of the buildings on either side of her to jump off of until she reached the top of the taller building. From the roof, she looked out upon the surroundings.

I’ve still got a decent amount of time left.

Taking a moment, she reset the choker and placed on her headdress. That should have been enough to add an extra fifteen minutes of effectiveness. There was no way she was letting her magic wear off just yet.

As she did, she caught sight of something in the distance.

A signal flare?

Things had already gone wrong, but they were lacking information. In that case, she needed to find out exactly what was going on. So, Sara took to the skies, hopping from building to building, trying to get as close to the source of the flare as she could without being seen. And there, she found...

Heinrich wandered through the city, away from the airport where he had been detained. As poor as it had been, his escape plan had worked, and he'd left the pursuers long behind in the airport. He had been separated from his group, but he wasn't worried- those kids should have been able to handle themselves both in escaping the pursuers and then finding a way to reunite. The only part of the equation was for him to rejoin them. He took out his cellphone, ready to see who answered him, when a thought crossed his mind. What if it was bugged or being tracked? He'd rather not smash it against the ground right then and there, so he simply put it away and thought of different ways to find the others. Looking up, Heinrich saw what appeared to be a signal flare in the distance. He wasn't sure if it had anything to do with his allies, but figured it was the best lead he had, so he began walking in the flare's direction. However, he was getting bored of walking around in the form he'd used to escape the airport. Plus, what if that esper freak boy realized he's been had and reported the mysterious girl to his superiors? Heinrich looked for a quiet location he could use to dispel transformation. It had to be somewhere hidden, as the spell left behind the body of whatever disguise Heinrich had been wearing, looking like something had burst out from inside it. As he kept walking, he noticed a quiet looking alley next to a convenience store. He'd rather there have been somewhere more abandoned, but the area didn't look like it had too many hidden corners. Additionally, things didn't seem too busy at that time of day. Odds were, if someone stumbled across the body, he'd be long gone. Walking into the alley, Heinrich began to pull at his flesh, emerging from the body of the girl. He stumbled a few steps forward as it took him a moment to readjust to his proper form, and then looked back at the aftermath. Even though it was his own spell, Heinrich still found it somewhat horrifying to look at what was left behind when the spell ended. But never mind the thought of staring at the body; he needed to find the others. Heinrich walked out from the alley, leaving behind the cast-off corpse of his disguise. As he walked, he kept on the lookout for any law enforcement, but encountered no one. Eventually, he arrived at the source of the flare, where he saw...

What greeted them upon reaching the site of the flare could be summed up in a single word.

Devastation.

The entire intersection of blocks had been torn apart. The ground was shattered by craters and long gouges as though struck by meteors or cut by some enormous blade. The walls of nearby buildings had melted like wax and reformed into jagged spears. Scorch marks still sizzled with steam, their glassy surfaces glowing a bright orange. One building had collapsed entirely, others looked close to doing the same.

A young, blonde man sat fallen against the melted wall, his arm stretched upwards where it was buried up to the elbow in the wall. He stirred, wincing in pain from the myriad injuries that covered his body.

Further down the street a pile of rubble budged, shaking loose fragments of brick and concrete. A girl in red emerged from the debris, throwing back her head as if breaking the surface of a swimming pool. Sasha Kreutzev reached down into the rubble and retrieved a long L-shaped metal bar and shook it clean of dust before clasping it back onto her belt. She turned her head slowly to scan for her enemy.

“This is quite the sight.” Sara muttered as she gazed down upon what was clearly the aftermath of what could almost be mistaken for a gas or steam pipe explosion. On one portion, she saw a young blond man who was clearly injured in the process.

Elsewhere, she saw…

Despite the chaos of the situation, she could smile as she saw a face that was all too familiar—one who she had remembered from a certain incident involving a vampire back in February.

If I remember correctly, her name was…

Grabbing a piece of paper from the notepad she kept in her pocket, she folded it in half and wrote a name on the outside of one half.

Sasha Kruezhev.

The folded paper would be functionally a booklet, a symbol representing the goddess Saraswati, creating a spell that would allow for two way communication with the owner of the name that was written on it—a quick and functional communication method that required minimal set-up.

“Looks like quite the mess, Sasha-chan.” From atop the building, she spoke while holding the book and looking down, even adding the unnecessary honorific that someone of her origin had no reason to be using. “What’s going on here? Do we need to become an unstoppable two-man cell again like we did in Whitby?”

While Atsa original plan had been to head to the hotel where they were supposed to be staying during this mission, this all changed when he saw a flare go off in the distance. For a mission all about stealth and staying under the radar using a signal flare to gather everyone together seemed like the worst option someone could choice. Then again, they had been caught the moment they stepped off the plan so maybe there just was no point in trying to remain hidden anymore. There was also always the possibility that the flare wasn't being sent by one of his allies and instead was an entirely different party trying to communicate with their group.

Regardless of what the purpose of the signal flare was there was no way Atsa wasn't going to investigate it. How could he resist? He was already in an strange new city and being chased by the law, what was there to lose by getting a look around and investigating? Best case scenario he runs into his allies and their target happens to to be there as well. Worst case scenario, it turns out to be a trap but unless their enemy knew about the mechanics of his invisibility spell he was fairly certain he'd be safe.

With that in mind he'd head off in the direction of the flare all the while still hidden beneath the invisibility of his Four Worlds spell. Unfortunately, while the spell was great at avoiding detection it was horrible when it came to moving through crowds of people. Even a slight tap for a person walking by would be enough to knock Atsa backward since at this point his body weighed less than even a piece of paper. While it was a pain though he'd eventually arrived at the area the flare had originated from.

Pure unadulterated destruction was the only description Atsa could think of to describe the seen in front of him. It was clear that fight had happen here and know he had to wonder if the flare was a signal or had just been part of an attack. Since they were in academy city he'd usually question whether the fight had been between espers or magicians but given the appearance of the two people he spotted amongst the rubble, it seemed clear what the answer was.

The fact that they were magicians still left the question of whether these two were friends or enemies though regardless of the answer to this question Atsa would still lift the mask off his face. Immediately he would materialize in front of Sasha and the blonde haired magician. If they were friends then maybe he could get some information from them, if they were enemies he had to at least keep them here long enough for his comrades to arrive. After all he doubted they hadn't noticed the flare.

And what Sasha spotted were a familiar face and voice.

Friend or an enemy?

Her skull was buzzing. She felt dizzy. Had been throughout the entire fight. An odd smell was stuck in her nose, not wearing off so easily. Her memory was as cloudy as her mind. What had happened?

Enemy or friend?

«Declaration Number One: All intruders are to be apprehended without exception.»

As she raised her monotone voice its, her cold gaze wandered across each of the three newcomers before fixating itself on Saravati. Then with a loud boom of earth shattering under the force of her step the red nun transformed herself into a human rocket and launched herself at her former comrade, fully intent on mercilessly unleashing the force of her L-shaped crowbar upon her now enemy’s head. What it hit, it’d shatter.

Post  Furuhashi Gou Yesterday at 10:56 am

The intruders had gotten away. By what could only be described a miraculous escape the larger portion of their group had slipped past Academy City’s supposedly water-tight security. The larger portion with a single exception. One girl had been taken prisoner in the wake of all that chaos. But so far they hadn’t talked.

And things hadn’t remained that easy in the first place.

Currently, Furuhashi Gou and Shirai Kuroko were zapping across the city, jumping from building to building, hurrying from one incident to another.

Shortly after the events in the airport, chaos had broken loose in the city. Naturally law enforcement drew the connection between that band of intruders and these strange happenings. And with the situation at the airport having calmed down significantly, additional forces had to be deployed into the city.

Namely, a few Judgement members and a couple of Anti-Skill cars were now headed to the new epicentre of the maelstrom.

«What the hell is going on?»

Furuhashi’s words upon stopping atop a building of a District 7 department store perfectly expressed the strange nature of the state of the world below. Windows were shattered, the nearby cafes’ furniture had been tossed all over the street, and elsewhere parked cars’ alarm sirens were blaring as some had been set ablaze. The sight was as though an angry mob had wreaked havoc. And indeed the root of it all was an angry mob.

But not a unified one.

Students, adults, any pedestrian around had engaged in what could only be described as mindless violence. People were actively attacking one another. Some were swinging their fists, others weapons, and a few even more dreadful means in the form of Esper abilities. Fireballs, wind blades, shockwaves, ice spears, lightning; the easily lethal phenomena you could find around any corner in this city were being used mindlessly to inflict violence upon each other.
