The little red devil turned about, that childish face bathed in a calm smile that defied all logic, even as the ground beneath her feet was bathed in the blood she had just shed. However, in an instant, that smile turned to a look of concern, and of fear, for when she turned about, her eyes were met by the crumpled, fallen form of her newfound friend, whose mind she had inadvertently assailed with visions of an eternity of pain no Human being was meant to know.

"Mister Paper?" She asked nervously, approaching him quickly and leaning over him, the gleam in her bright red eyes replaced by the fearful, tentative darkness of worry. "A-are you okay?"

No answer.

"Mister Paper?" She repeated, dread filling her voice as she shook his unconscious form. Had she done this? Deep down, that thought made her feel something - a sensation she could remember from long, long ago, but could never hope to define. Foolish, innocent child, who had cast aside fear and pain along with the fetters of morality that had bound her, becoming the unwitting pawn of a monstrous being of her own creation all to escape the hellish reality that had consumed and nearly extinguished her precious life. The feeling she could not understand was guilt. She, whose hidden rage at being imprisoned had driven her to kill countless innocents as well as those innumerable tormentors who had plagued her every waking hour, yet could somehow feel remorse for the pain she had accidentally brought upon one being such as herself - the first entity she had dared call a "friend."

But even she, whose mind had been twisted and warped by endless suffering, could yet realize one thing: Rei needed help, and, while she herself could not give it to him, there were other people who could. And so, mustering her resolve, Marisenne determinedly took her new friend's limp wrists in her hands, and, fighting through the sorrow she felt at the anguish she must have caused him, desperately began to pull. He was bigger than her, and her childish body could not soon muster the strength to move him. Despite this realization, however, she refused to accept such a fact, and continued to pull with all her might, desperately trying to drag her friend to get help until she was too exhausted to continue pulling. Over the course of her efforts, she had barely moved him more than a few inches.

Then there was no escaping it. To get him to help, she would have to use her powers, which meant someone was sure to see her once she left the alley, which in turn meant that the bad men following her would realize where she was. But this was the only option left to her. She had to save her new friend. And so, she knelt beside the blind magus, wrapping her tiny arms around Rei as best she could and supplementing her grip by painfully generating crystals to fasten the boy to herself. Then, she rose, forcing out a burst of energy to pick her up off the ground and lift her into the air. Multicolored light danced off of her, tiny, gleaming particles spiraling out around her like a glistening pair of seraphic wings. Then, with a single flap, she surged her power and launched herself upward, clumsily shooting off like a rocket and into the air.

Now she just had to find someone who could help Rei.
