    "Aw. Well maybe if I'm lucky they'll be up while I'm there." Sakura replies. Only if they're not screaming of course. She knows how hard that can be, and it can only be worse with twins.

    The sorceress shakes her head, "You were really the one that was supposed to have twins of us." She states with a faint smile.

    [Red Zone - Dodgy Blind Alley]

    Her day had been terrible. The store she was employed at was robbed. Her school was shut down due to a mutant infestation. She had to skip lunch because someone had burned down the restaurant she always fed at.

    And to top it all off, now she was late!

    A panting, young girl sprints round a corner into a sketchy back-alley in a particularly run-down neighborhood of the Red Zone. She's late. The sun is beginning to set. As it slowly rolls over the horizon, there's only one thing on her mind.

    She must reach her home. Her little flat with eight locks and barred windows. It's late. And when the light is vanquished the criminals come out to play and the monsters openly hunt whatever luckless victim stirs on the streets. The stars don't even shine on this section of the city. Or the moon. Every night the sky promises eternal darkness until the sun overthrows the treacherous shade and reclaims its throne, sending the monsters back to the hell they crawled out of.

    For twelve hours at the most.

    The girl is a fair-skinned maiden, no older than sixteen. Her body hasn't quite reached maturation as of yet. It is slightly underdeveloped. Her figure is lean. It is obvious that she will grow to be quite a gorgeous woman. Her hair is of a chocolate tone. It is as soft as velvet, as is her skin. Her eyes, clouded glades of muddy water, and her gaze appear to be boring straight though the objects she beholds rather than only capturing one of their faces at time. Her lips are redder and more intense than blood.

    Hanging from her work bag, a patchwork rabbit is tied by the arm. It sways to and fro, black button eyes sewn onto its battered, dirty face by a mere thread. There's an abnormally...alien...look to it.

    She constantly has a very...depressed...air about her. She drowns in melancholy. She is not at all as merry as a girl her age should rightly be.

    She's a hybrid. She once was human. Now she's something more. Something much, much more.

    And that's when she identifies it.

    A brick wall blocking the road forward. This detour wasted more time than it saved! Maybe she can blast through it! But if that fails, she'll be that much closer to her demise...

    "Dang!"

    She sighs as she takes a moment to breathe and think. She could scale the wall! Yes! That's how she'll pull this off!

    In a flash, she's hopping atop garbage cans, bounding up walls and vaulting over the railing of a fire escape. With a running start, she leaps off of the fire escape, aiming for a point high above the wall she is determined to overcome. She clears the wall, crashing to the ground, her tumble cushioned by bags of shredded paper below her.

    Outstanding! She's that much closer to her flat. That much closer to her salva-

    "Hello? What have we here?"

    Oh gods. Oh gods. She's out of the frying pan and into the fire.

    She's landed in the middle of five gang members. Their shirts are of the same hue. They've baggy pants. Two of them are armed with assault rifles and one with an rpg.

    This... This is bad!

    "Please don't hurt me!"

    "Haha! Why'd we run around doing anythin' like that fer? Undamaged goods of fine quality fetch a high price in the slave market."

    As if tonight couldn't get any worse...

    With a mighty CLONK the robot takes a sonic kick to the chest, pounding a foot shaped dent into it's metal hide and causing sparks to burst from it's joints. In counter-attack the droid flails at the doctor, swinging it's stretchy metal arm about like a whip and trying to smack him across the room. Only it's left arm though. Whatever delicate machinery the doc crunched must have controlled it's right, which now trails uselessly on the ground.

    And on the other side of the corridor, Divebomb's bombing dive might be interrupted! The ghostly bandit has finally regained control of his puppet, using the possessed bank director to activate one of the vault's many defenses! In front of Gelley, glowing blue lines leap from wall to wall, forming a net of solid light right in her path!

    If Divebomb is quick and agile she might be able to get through without touching the lines, but if she does, they'll cling like death itself and give her a nasty electric shock to boot, the voltage starting out fairly low but continuously ramping up until she ceases to move or somehow disables them.

    Before POW! happens cause the Doctor wasn't paying attention to the flailing arm. It's his own fault for having tunnel vision when it comes to these things really. Whoosh, clang! Fortunately the nature of smacking into a metal bank wall creates strong sonic vibrations that the Doctor uses through pseudo not even science to create a shield to soften the blow. Not that it keeps it from hurting, but it keeps it from being overly lethal. It'd be a grimdark comic indeed if he died from a single room toss.

    Doctor Decibel chooses to spend this turn getting back on his feet, head ringing.
    Decibel's warning not only serves to annoy Gelley, it likely saves her life. The heroine's eyes widen as the light forms, and her thrusters flip to reverse position. In a blast of blue fire, she loses all momentum, grinding on the metal floor before stopping just inches from the barrier.

    Too slow. She'd been too slow. Can't hesitate like that again. For now, she contents herself with picking up a nearby robot corpse and tossing it at the hardlight grid.

There's the compass and telescopes, but no gunpowder although some of the large frigates closely resemble those from the Golden Age of Piracy. Meanwhile, some cultures use iron, bronze or even stone weaponry, whilst others use glass.
    "We really oughta organize one of these things," Tina says to the girls, smirking. "Not like I haven't got money to burn. You think the Council would mind if we turned GloG's lake chocolate for a day? Y'know, without killin' everything in it?" There's gotta be magic for that.

    Sakura laughs. "Think of it this way. Since you only want a couple kids anyway, it saves you the trouble of having to be pregnant more. I guess it woulda been a time saver for me too, but something tells me I don't mind being pregnant as much as you."

    Alder watched the scene from a safe distance, his grizzled features hardened into a scowl and he drew one of his many pistols and leveled it at the first gang member who was armed.

    I dunno if you boys want to keep that up. Might not be healthy.

    His voice was calm, but the intimidating aspect of it was his eyes, they said that he could and would shoot each and every one of them before any one of the gang members could fire a shot.

    "I'm supposed to save this for the show, but here's something for you in advance."

    Clarissa whispers into Becky's ear, attempting to reciprocate Becky's affections in full by kissing Becky once more and attempting to trace little circles on the other side of Becky's neck.

    She'll attempt to break off from the romantic displays seconds later, strolling up to the door of the Sitar's Strings and attempting to hold it open for Becky to pass through. Because seeing Becky strut through the door will make holding the door totally worth it.

    The shadowmancer shivers in telight at the soft caresses, nearly tackling Clarissa then and there and completely forgetting their goal. But she manages to contain herself (Yes, Becky did contain herself. Try not to faint.) and, with a wink to Clarissa, does indeed strut through the door.

    The image of her stepping inside, with her raven-black hair, red eyes, pale skin, barely-there bodysuit (especially barely-there in the lower back) and incongruous knee-high stomping boots is one that no doubt makes an impression...

    "That thought have actually hit me." Cessie replies cheerfully, Sakura's laugh managing to distract her from her distress. "Though I doubt it will stop Harnel from asking me of another child in a year or two anyway."

The one hit by the grenade is blown away and down to the ground, and it quickly starts to get up. The one hit by rifle fire isn't hurt, but turns to the source and screams at the soldier before starting a new approach

    For Gniewomir, tearing off the Chrysalid's jaw will be just as hard as tearing his helmet off is for the Chrysalid. It keeps struggling and screaming, but it seems to be finally getting a bit weaker.

    The SMG and handgun fire does nothing to any of the new Chrysalids, even though they're hit. The grenade is a bit more effective, but it doesn't severely wound any of the creatures. The witch's fire, fortunately, does cause one of them to cringe and scream in pain, as the magic essentially goes right through their armor.

    Of the three Chrysalids who remain unharmed, one of them tries to get to Gniewomir and Anatolij, while the other two remain moving around the other bikers to flank them.
    The bikers use their communicators to call for support. Those things will need heavy weapons to bring them down.

    Two of them rush towards the Chrysalids approaching Sophia. They try to draw their attention and give her time to retreat.

    Gniewomir, sensing his enemy's weakness, redoubles his efforts as a surge of divine power goes through him. His whole body is sheathed in Svarog's fire.

    Anatolij drives towards the approaching Chrysalid, only to retreat at the last moment. Right now, they need to keep them occupied until support arrives.

    [Red Zone - Dodgy Blind Alley]

    Skittering is generally a quieter sound effect, pretty easy to miss when there's so much action already going on centerstage! And screaming? That's not out of the ordinary in this neighborhood.

    When Alder intervenes, a seemingly unarmed gangsta points at him.

    "This ain't none of yo business, old man. Why don't ya holster your weapon, limp home, and eat your bran flakes 'n watch yourself some black-and-white tv. Now go on before you're old and cripple. Scram!"

    The gang laughs at Alder as the two riflemen raise their guns in response to the leveling of his pistol. They don't train their guns on him just yet. They think he's a funny-man with no spine.

    And so they underestimate their enemy...

    Alder fires his pistol once at each of the armed gang members, each shot aimed at their center body masses. Before the sound of the final shot ends Alder has pointed his pistol at the remaining unarmed men.

    I figure your day will end a whole lot better if you let the young lady go.

    Sakura grins at Cessie. "I don't know about mother of the year, but I do my best." Even so, it sure feels good to hear Cessie say that. "We still don't really know how many kids we want. I just know I want more. We'll just figure it out as we go."

    When 'Ekkehard' sees Emily, he smiles. If she looks his way, he'll give a small wave to acknowledge that he's seen her.

    Also, I thought that Clarissa and Becky were both visually identical to a normal human- no funny coloured skin, extraneous appendages, overly large dentures, strangely shaped ears or any similar differences.

Besides, they're already shells, sort of- each has the next generation of larvae in suspended development within their abdomen. When one is killed, the larvae awaken and eat their way out.

Regardless, I must suggest we use another lake or pond- I live there too, after all, and I can't see how you'll take everything out without killing it and that's my food." Myrim's surprised about the discovery of the mermaid, as she was completely unaware of her presence.

    "Well someone finnallly tracked me down to give me my grandpa's fortune. Which I didn't know he had when I was a kid. He was an adventurer for years. Apparently some friends of his had been taking care of it, helping it grow for years."

    Anige shrugs. She had been happy to hear she was getting an inhertiance from her grandfather, but disspaointed when it turned out to be only money. She had hoped for something with more sentimental value.

    [Sitar's Strings]

    The couple doesn't strike me as physically inhuman, yes. The existence of eye color-altering contacts and vehement gothic flair would lead me to hypothesize that Becky is human with stylistic preferences matching those of a goth. And Clarissa is disguised, with theatrical verve, as a human policewoman. Her tails are cloaked and a simple illusion has been cast that restores a quasi-human quality to her mouth. Granted, their auras may speak volumes for their true natures, if Becky has one or someone is acutely sensitive to Clarissa's.

    But nevermind that! The play must go on!

    A smiling Clarissa sways into the restaurant, blowing a bubble with her gum as she advances. She attempts to hug Becky and run her hands down to the base of Becky's spine as she pauses beside her friend. Clarissa additionally attempts to greet her with a devoted kiss. An impassioned kiss that might transfer the minty wad of gum she was chewing into Becky's ownership.

    "I apologize for my tardiness, my love. They held me up with a debriefing, and you know how merciless and monotonous those are. So here I am, so late I haven't even had time to change into an evening dress! I just...I couldn't wait to see you, y'know."

    Latalla blinks a few times.

    Did anyone else just notice the universe blink off for a few days? Anyone?

    She turns to the waitress.

    I mean, surely you felt that, right?
    Not really here. Just an illusion.

    Sakura gives Cessie a sad look and shakes her head. "I wouldn't let that happen. I just look at Laela's little, smiling face, and I know I want..." She pauses, looking for the words. "More of that. I love her more than anything, and I guess I have a lot more love to give." She smiles to herself, looking off down the street.

    Gniewomir, sensing his enemy's weakness, redoubles his efforts as a surge of divine power goes through him. His whole body is sheathed in Svarog's fire.

    Anatolij drives towards the approaching Chrysalid, only to retreat at the last moment. Right now, they need to keep them occupied until support arrives.

    [Red Zone - Just a Park]

    The Chrysalids near Sophia are successfully distracted by the two bikers. They turn their heads, and then the rest of their bodies and let out a scream before starting their approach.

    The Chrysalid grappling Gniewomir is engulfed in flame. It screams in pain, and in a last ditch effort to cause damage, vomits up its poisonous spit, trying to get it on him. His power armor will more than likely protect him.

    The other Chrysalids stay with a cautious approach, unsure why some of the bikers are riding away now. A couple of them break off, trying to get into the rest of the Red Zone.

Besides, they're already shells, sort of- each has the next generation of larvae in suspended development within their abdomen. When one is killed, the larvae awaken and eat their way out.
    The Chrysalid crouches low and growls again, before moving away from the alley to join the rest of its group.

    [Dodgy Blind Alley]

    If they can't hear the skittering, then the people in the alley may hear the low hiss of a Chrysalid slowly moving in front of the alley's entrance. A viscous fluid drips from its jaws as it eyes each of its prey.

    [An Alley]

    The man may hear a pittering noise on the rooftops above him.

    "Yeah that's the only place to have such a view."

    Zefir takes a look around. The woman coming first act's strange. Even thought he only heard part of the story. Maybe she is insane? Well the nexus itself is insane so maybe this is ok.

    And then Becky and Clarissa entered. At first Zefir wasn't aware who they are, but as Clarissa spoke up he remembers the voice. He tries to stay calm and may obviously avoid looking at Clarissa.

    An Alleyway


    At the entrance stands a giant stone scorpion, looking into the alley. He can't make out what happens there he just hears the panting.

    "All right?" he asks into the alley.

    "Yes, I understand what you mean." Cessie replies with an literary invisible nod. "For me Cora and Bastion feel enough however. I'm not sure I could have time for many more with my new position at watch and everything else I have planned."

    "Yeah, I gotcha. I wouldn't expect you to to be as crazy as me at least." The dryad giggles. "Taking care of just Laela is a lot of work, and I bet two is even more, huh? And three or four even more than that." Not that Sakura seems to mind one bit. "Adir wants to find someone to hire to help take care of the kids. I said we could talk about it more, but I'm still not sure."

    The man ignores any and all sounds as he goes to work on the body.
    Taking the blade in hand he stabs it deep into the man's chest, causing the man to start to shrivel and wrinkle.
    "Yes my lord...drink...drink!"

    When the boarding ramp opens down, a girl comes out. Ram-like spiral horns in orange and flat-gold eyes contrast with her dull black hair and concrete-grey skin; similarly dull are her black top and pants, her umber jacket and kama (it's a Star Wars EU term but it sounds better than "buttcape", which it is).
    She glances back up the ramp into the hold of the craft.

    Ayakan, a Alternian girl with short horns, a black shirt, and clown pants comes down the ramp.
    The pants are new.
    Oh, and by coming down I mean she has tripped and is tumbling down.
    Rubbing her head she stood back up.
    "Ow..."
    She blinked at her friend.
    "So...yeah, we need more supplies, man. Specifically more supor slime. I'm down to my last pie." she said with a smile, looking at her friend with glazed over eyes.
