It was finally enough playing around. The girl was enough for them to finally make a move on the Shadow. Another arrow came bellowing down towards him. The only reason he had noticed was because of the subtle gestures that Crystal had made just before she ran up to make a move. He knew that he wouldn't have enough time to move out of the way of this arrow, so he moved the girl above him a a shield. He realised that the shield he was using probably wouldn't be enough though and he began to move so as not to get hit in the head. The arrow pierced right through the girls frail skin and came out the other end hitting the Shadow just bellow his chest. This was a spot where he knew from anatomy, would do little to nothing to his abilities and wouldn't kill him. Besides, he loved the feeling of pain.
The Shadow threw the girl to the side and braced himself for the next attack to come. Then he realised that he didn't see Evin anymore. He ducked to dodge the rope dart that flew just above his head. At that point, Crystal was close enough to be able to be hit by the dart, so she slid down the the ground to dodge it. Using this as an opportunity, the Shadow brought his foot into the air fora deadly kick to Crystal. Before he could bring it down though, a hot pain raced up his foot. Evin had managed to recoil his rope dart and throw it back into the Shadow's foot. The Shadow simply smiled at this feeble attack though. He grabbed the rope from out of his foot and yanked it forward pulling Evin towards the Shadow. Before Evin made it close to him though, Crystal had managed to to get up and attempted to strike him in the gut. The Shadow used his years of skillful training to black the few attacks that she managed to get in.
Evin pulled out his dagger and got ready for a fight as the rope quickly dragged himself towards the Shadow. Crystal had managed to use the time the Shadow was distracted with Evin to get up and throw a few attacks. When Evin got in range to attack, he swung his dagger towards the back of the Shadow. The Shadow had managed to get a punch in on Crystal and used the moment that she was stunned to grab her arm and use her sai to black Evin's attack. Crystal then attempted to use her other sai to get him to let go of her arm, but the Shadow used the leverage he had of her arm to move Evin's dagger to deflect the attack from the sai. Evin's dagger flew out if his hand and off just beside the girl.
