I’ll Save You!
« on: Jul 14, 18, 12:54:48 PM »
It was a dark and stormy night. Okay, it wasn’t storming, but it was dark. Very dark, thanks to the clouds in the sky. Shizuri was shielded from sight and sound as she headed towards home, and she definitely was not skipping. There was just a… bounce to her step, that’s all. She had extra marks in her psychic cabinet and no more bundle of drugs on her person, and that made this a great night, even if it was dark and kind of gloomy. Since she had managed to get some extra marks out of the guy she was delivering a package to, it meant she could keep some of it without her grandmother finding out. It had also been great fun convincing him to agree to her extra fee. Hopefully her grandmother wouldn’t find out about that, either. Shizuri knew she wasn’t supposed to do that, but it was so fun to watch him squirm.

Besides, it wasn’t as though she had really done anything to him. Sure, his pants were wet when she left him, and he stunk, but neither of those things were something a shower wouldn’t fix. He was perfectly fine!

Grinning, Shizuri rounded a corner and heard a commotion coming from behind one of the buildings. She paused, trying to figure out what it was before ducking down an alley to get a look. She built shadows as she went, weaving them into her shield to try to hide herself better. The intended effect was to cause people’s eyes to slide away, even if they were Darker than she was.

There were some crates stacked against the building and she carefully climbed them so that she could see what was going on and hopefully not be noticed in the process.

Really, Akira should have figured this would happen. It was just his luck.

It was all Shiro's fault, as usual. Akira's older brother had sent him off on an errand to inform a small cadre of drug dealers that the Kagen Kumicho wanted his cut and that if they didn't deliver it, there'd be problems. He'd sent Akira because he was a visible member of the family and was generally seen as inoffensive. The Blood Opal Warlord had enough power to make himself a serious threat if he had to, and Akira'd been trained to fight, so it should have been easy. Nobody was going to try to mess with his pretty face given that it was so popular.

That was the idea, anyway.

Instead the drug dealers had friends, and friends of friends, and friends of friends of friends, and they all decided that Akira's proposal for giving money to the Kagen for their 'turf' had been thoroughly rejected.

He was in the process of getting rejected thoroughly against a wall when Shizuri found him. He'd managed to keep his shields up but they'd gotten some licks in on him and given that there were like ten or twelve or fucking twenty of them (he couldn't see) he couldn't get up to get a swing back as he was pinned down.

"Stop! Hey stop! Forget about it! You can keep the fucking money!" He yelled out as they rained down blows on his shields, but they didn't seem to care about anything he had to say and he was feeling his shields buckle as he tried to throw up another couple layers to protect himself from the unrelenting storm of fists, feet, and bats.

Fuck.

Oh, well this certainly did not look good. With a frown, Shizuri watched for a few moments as the group attempted to beat down one male. His voice was familiar somehow, but she couldn't immediately place it. He sounded kind of like... Akira no Kagen? What would he be doing out here? It seemed unlikely that it was him, but on the off-chance... Well, she would just have to do something. Besides, this was hardly a fair fight, and Shizuri loved a fair fight. Unfair ones were only fine when they were to her advantage and she did her best to always make sure that was the case.

With the shadow Craft still built around her, Shizuri climbed down off the crates and darted forwards. She inserted herself between the wall and the group as they gathered around the male on the ground and then...

BOOM!

With an explosion illusion, Shizuri dropped her shadow Craft and sight shield, appearing in the midst of everyone. At the same time, she shielded herself and the victim, and expanded it outwards as if it was the explosion attempting to throw the attackers back away from the wall. The fake explosion was followed by several more smaller, crackling explosions and bright, multicolored flashes, leaving fake smoke in their wake as she stood with her feet spread and her hands up. One last, delayed little explosion sounded with its own tiny puff of smoke.

Smoke and silence and a distinct lack of anyone running away. Crap. Shizuri slowly turned her head, eyeing the maybe-Akira.

"Run!" Shizuri whispered loudly.
