β˜… Personality β˜†
Guardian | | Quiet | | Detached | | Observant
To put Rei in words, one would see that Rei tends to stay away from people. That's not to say she avoids at all costs, but more she'd rather sit afar from others and watch them, and learn about them through watching rather than having a conversation with them, which she's not the best at, she can talk, but often comes off cold and cynical, which isn't quite intended but happens anyway, what doesn't help is that she's rather detached emotionally. Though when one gets to know her, the kindness that resides shows, because of her observant nature, she knows and remembers nearly everything about the people around her, ranging from their strengths, weaknesses, and what have you and she plays on their strengths herself to cover their weaknesses. On combat missions, Rei is intelligent and gauges her surroundings, remembering details, and guiding those around her to ensure safety, although, if danger is present, Rei becomes the guardian of everyone, with bullets going everywhere at the foes. Though she does beat on herself more than most expect, as her failures and mistakes tend to get her annoyed, and often she misreads the emotions of her companions, which tends to lead to callous mistakes on her part. Despite these flaws, Rei tries her hardest to ensure the protection of everyone, noting that under the snow of Rei's emotions, lies a kind heart.

β˜… Bio β˜†
Born from a single mother, Rei's life started out rocky from day one. Though while she was very young, she was raised at least to the best her mother could do. That is, with her job being less than virtuous, it was obvious the ship was to sink, and eventually it did when her mother abandoned Rei, at age four, in the Slums. Having now no parental guidance, Rei wandered, lost and rather confused, though was picked up by someone whom was more like her father to her, a man by the name of Derrick. In the three years that Rei was with Derrick, she had learned, especially how to fire a gun, the slums are rather dangerous, and Rei needed protection, thus, she was given a small handgun to help. Though once those three years were gone, "tragedy" struck. Derrick was killed right in front of Rei, of course, Rei was next on the chopping block, and while everything in her body said run, she detached, emotion had left and she went back at the assailants. While she didn't kill them, they were pretty well beat, thus, Rei began truly living in the slums, fighting when needed and using the force she needed to use.

Though the days often blurred for Rei, there was something that she remembered, when the war had broken out, she had noticed these things walking around, attacking people, but that was put aside as she was one of thirteen people, all of which were poor like her. Though it felt like home to the young Rei, most had been refugees escaping from the war, and Rei was the one they looked to for aid in getting around the city. They admittedly had their fair share of run-ins with the police and government, with one incident involving a police dog, which chased Rei down and began biting, according to Rei it hurt like hell, and soon she beat the dog off. Sparing it, but made sure it'd run back. Returning on point, this group and her remained together for some time, protecting each other until Rei was about sixteen, in which the outbreak occurred and the thirteen members soon had dwindled down to one, ranging from the people dying of natural causes, monsters killing them, them killing eachother, and so on. Rei was in the middle of it, and soon she was alone once more, fighting for her life as she tries to find herself a home once more.

β˜… Thoughts on Last President and Current Situation β˜†
If you have to know, I personally didn't care about the politics and the president. He was an idiot, and because of his idiotic actions, these monsters roam the streets. If I had a care in the world about him I would have been more miserable that he was in power than not. And the monsters on the streets? Nothing but mindless creatures that humans should be able to outsmart.

β˜…Likes β˜†
β˜† The Rain || "It's relaxing, as if all the blood is washed away"
β˜† Weapons in general || "A weapon is the extension of one's personality, thus I try to take care of them to the best I can"
β˜† Anime (especially Romances) || "W-who told you?! T-tell me now!"
β˜† Napping after a meal || "Hey, it's nice to have a warm meal in your stomach and then relaxing. Is that a problem?"
β˜† Running || "It helps me think."
β˜† Fire || "It's normal to gather around one where I'm from"

β˜… Dislikes β˜†
β˜† Cold || "Most of you have slept in beds. Imagine sleeping with but a coat on the ground."
β˜† Entitled people || "You and your silver spoons."
β˜† Large animals || "Bad history with them.... Don't remind me." (It's more a fear)
β˜† Watching anyone die || "I've seen it far too many times. I won't let it happen again"
β˜† Thieves || "Touch my stuff. And You'll be shot. Survive? You'll be shot again."
β˜† Wasting anything || "Wasting is stupid. Someone could actually use that."





So begins...

Morning as usual; or so he believed. I was extremely rare to see the morning sun beyond the greenish grey smoke clouds in the sky. Blade sat up from his sofa mound of scattered blanket sheets and pillows. He looked over to his sister who he insisted to sleep in the bed. She looked so peaceful. It was nice to know that at least in her dreams she could live the happy life she wanted. After a long deep breath, he stood up and began to prepare himself for the day.

After washing up and getting dressed, he began to prepare a small breakfast. Everyone underground had food rationed every week and what they were given had to last them that week exactly. If they ran out, unfortunately, more couldn't be provided from The Walkers. However, the remaining survivors were quite friendly and were not against sharing among others. It's nice to know spirits could be so lifted and greed couldn't consume their lives. Blade always secretly gave his sister a large portion of his food. He would prefer if she ate properly and if he had to skip a meal or two, it's for the best. After placing the place of breakfast on the table for her, he grabbed a small snack and took his bag of supplies.

Today would be as usual. The team would gather near the entrance of the underground civilization, discuss their tasks and depart until the signal to return would be given in a few hours. Depending on what group was doing what, the task was often split between three squadrons. Most of the time the task of riding the undead was given to the strongest team, followed by the job of scavenging any supplies and food to the most observant and the search for survivors to the team that was lacking the previous day.

He placed the cigarette into his mouth letting out a small sigh. Since he couldn't just go out and buy them, he often made one last an entire day. It took a lot of control to do that but he would surly keep an eye out for any smokes along the way. Blade approached the iron gates. The groans could be heard above and each time he heard that, it gave him chills. He placed down his bag looking over everything. Inside everyone's pack was a gas mask if a cloud were to pass by, water, small snacks, flare guns for the signal to leave, communicator, matches, compass, map of the city and small containers if they were to find fresh water that wasn't bottled.

He lit his cigarette and sat down on a large stone as he waited for the team to assemble.

The morning started dark, before slowly the light filtered in from presumably the sun, and it was nice, to see the sun rise through the smoke that poisoned the city into the way that it is now. Just reality one may guess. Of course, Rei was already awake, having been on watch half-way through the night before, Rei had already been at the meeting point, though up a little higher, ensuring that she could both see the area, and remain hidden from those pesky bandits. Though as she sat, yawning slightly, she noticed Blade, with his normal supplies for the others whom would roam the world above, where humanity both died, and walk again, remaining quiet she watched, as the normal routine had taken place, packs thrown down, cigarette lit, and bum on a large rock, just like any morning for Blade. As the stillness choked the air, a little fire-starter had shown up, Sera, or as Rei called her; "Hellion", whom had been annoyed already, spouting something about hard candy, knowing Sera liked them, Rei tended to get hard candies for her, anything that'd make the girl settle down for a bit. The next one to enter, was Rei's teammate most often, Youta, or, as Rei calls him, "You", whom just came up grinning, talking about a lazy morning of some sort, Rei, being as observant as she is, honestly couldn't care about what he said after that.

While she almost secretly prepared to move out, Rei noticed another of her allies, Anders, someone whom she admittedly looked up to for his skills, and especially his weapon, she thought that his weapon was interesting, and flat out awesome when in combat, since as far as she knew, it often didn't need silencers like hers do. Though finally wrapping up the party was, surprisingly Kasumi, whom had acknowledged her lateness. And at this point, Rei nodded to herself, dropping gracefully from her perch and looking at the others, even speaking a little, to especially Blade, whom she deemed would care about a little report, "Outside of Hellion over there, quiet night, no disturbances" she said before taking her pack, and taking a breath, no good morning or any other greeting that could be heard, but Rei stood, watching her allies ready to handle anything that she may come across during the scavenge.

Youta kicks a rock impatiently, the stone doesn't budge, and neither will us survivors Youta thinks. If anyone believes in the power of the humans and the walkers it' s Youta, he has hope and faith that something good is right around the corner. It might be a false hope but Youta doesn't think that's an option. The Blonde decides to check on his own supplies and takes out the piece of bread to finish noshing on it.
Youta turns from blade as the others join, Kasumi, Anders, Sera, and Rei. Youta flashes a toothy grin towards his silent partner. "Hey Rei, good morning to you. Are you ready with those guns of yours? I think we'll see some action today, I mean if Blade gives us the chance." Youta shields his words from the strong leader though speaks loud enough so everyone can hear purposely. Youta is definently the least combative or strong member but he definently has his perks and personality. The blonde bounces around as the others get everything in order, Youta may seem like he doesn't take anything seriously but he does, it's his antics get in the way. He already has everything in order including his saber, a gas mask, and some utility items that should help should their passage be blocked and they need to camp out. He sets his rather heavy pack near the seat of the gate. Walking over to Blade with another toothy grin displayed, he gives a mock salute. "So what can we do today sir?" Youta and Rei are new but they are very capable, Rei can kill Youta can talk like they make up for eachothers weaknesses. In waiting for a response the blonde shoots a look at Kasumi, a soft and brief look but a rather obvious one. Youta breaks the gaze before Kasumi catches on, returning to look at Blade with an eager puppy face.

As the group began too gather, he smiled lightly. Sure they weren't the most punctual but they were like a second family to him. He took a final huff before rubbing the bub of the cigarette against the rock. He let out a soft yawn before placing it into his pocket. As he listened to Rei, he couldn't help but feel confused. She didn't really have to do this but she insisted and he couldn't tell if this was some sort of tactic to get on his good side and get some sort of promotion. He wouldn't worked. "Why thank you Rei." He said in his usual swave voice. Most women got that.

He hopped off his rock and grabbed a hold of his bag and sword before smiling at Youta's question. "Well as you all know we divide the daily duties depending how the teams did previously. Now it seemed pretty even really so not a lot of flaws. Which I like to see. So for today, I'll assign differently. Squad 3, I'd like for you to be on Kill duty today in down town. Subordinates say they have been a massive increase in the sworms there and this seems like the perfect test for our newbies. Of course, that just means you have to be all the more careful."

He wasn't against trying new things or assigning tough jobs to new people.

"Squad 2, today we have a special mission for you. We have been getting strange signals from the business district. People believe it may be survivors trying to contact us but they might be trapped at the top. I'm sure those damn zombies had them cornered up there and they had to barricade them out. So, your on rescue duty." He smiled. "Coming from you two, I don't expect failure."

He then cleared his throat and looked to Sera. "As for you and me Sera, were heading back into the suburbs to try and find anything we can get our hands on. Medicine, water, food; whatever. But, as you may know, the clouds over there are pretty dense. So it will be hard to spot any of those damn zombies around there." He smiled and playfully poked her head. "But if we do spot them, I'll be sure to let you burn them to a crisp."

He gave a small nod before looking to everyone. "Alright everyone. I'll give the signal in 2 hours tops. Be sure to keep an eye out for the white flare. Remember, if your in danger, just call on the communicator and we'll come for ya. Got it people?" He then approached the gate and reached for the key around his neck opening the lock. "Alright let's get to work."

❝I'm so ready to burn some zombies up, so let's go and fight already!❞


【ɗιαƖσgΟ…Ρ” cσƖσя:#d62e28】







Sera stared angrily at Youta, deciding to ignore the slime for the time being. She found him annoying,a pest - Kasumi was her best friend, no one else's! He didn't have the right to go and butt his head in like that. It only got worse when Anders came and taunted her about what she did to Yuka. What? Yuka deserved it for trying to steal her candy - for always trying to steal her candy. The pyromaniac glowered at the robo tech guy, regarding him with a sour expression. "Keep that up and I won't let you examine my Combustion Module later." Sera said with a scowl. She was interrupted from her bad mood when Kasumi-chan arrived and Sera spontaneously thanked her for the candy with a nice big mix between a hug and a tackle, running and wrapping her arms around her lavender-haired best friend.

"Suuuumi!" Sera giggled, enjoying Kasumi's warmth. Yeah, she'd never let anyone take her away, never ever! "Don't be late next time, it makes me worry, got it?" She tried to make a stern voice at the end, but it was hard to sound menacing when your voice was muffled by candy. Sera shrugged, figuring her message got across when Rei approached, giving her another candy. Sera grinned at the usually quiet girl, tossing her a friendly thumbs up. Hopefully Rei would talk to people more, Sera really wanted to see the woman get along with everyone and -

Oh no. Oh hell no. Kasumi might not have noticed, but Sera certainly saw Youta's over friendly glance aimed at the lavender-haired girl. She hugged Kasumi again, possessively, and shot Youta a dirty look. There was no way he was taking her best friend from her. The game was interrupted when Blade made his proclamation of the team set up - Sera was a little sad she wasn't on kill duty, but shrugged. Scavenging through the suburbs was fine too, that way she could ensure the candy stockpile went back to full.

"Gotcha, Hendrix." Sera said with an eager, excited grin. She was ready to go - and hell, if some zombies wanted to crash the party, she was more than willing to burn them up! "Oi, Anders! If Kasumi comes back with a scratch, I'll burn your electronics, okay? Keep her safe!"

With that, Sera pushed open the gates, heading in the direction of the suburbs. She tested her Combustion Module, enjoying the heat emitting from it. She waved her arm a little, making a tiny flame that danced as she moved, with a delighted little smile. She stuck her tongue out at Blade as she walked slightly ahead of the leader. "The elders say we're in need of more meat, and some of them are getting sick, so medicine's a priority. Just in case you wanted to know, boss."

"Okay, I wont be late again." Kasumi smiled at her friend.

Kasumi acknowledged Rei's appearance with a polite nod as the girl descended from somewhere along the ceiling. She often saw Rei here when she came by, but could never figure out exactly how she got up there, or where she went once she was up there. Kasumi couldn't help feeling a very slight twinge of jealousy every time she saw Rei, bitter at the fact that she could go somewhere Kasumi couldn't, but was careful not to let the feeling become anything more than a passing thought. Kasumi thought of everyone as her friend, after all. She turned her attention to Blade as he broke down the days work and told each team where they would be heading for their mission.

"A signal from the business district...?" She said mostly to herself. She had some vague memories of that district but never had a reason to venture any deeper than the outskirts, let alone memorize the city layout there. It was a blank slate to her, and an excited feeling tingled in her chest. She could finally go somewhere new, fill in one of the blanks in her mind about the city's layout. She turned her gaze to Anders, wondering if he knew the area.
"Do you think one of your machines could pick up the signal inside the district?" She asked, knowing how much he loved his machines, and how much she loved to watch his machines work. She blushed slightly as Sera threatened to burn his electronics if she came back with a scratch.

"Come on, Sera. Have I ever come back with so much as a wrinkle in my clothes?" She crossed her arms.
"But I appreciate you caring for me. We'll both come back without a scratch, right?" She grinned to her friend once more before hearing the beautiful sound of a lock clicking open. Kasumi looked to Anders expectantly before moving. Even though they were technically equals, she respected his decisions as an adult with two more years of experience than she had.
"I know the safest route there, but once were inside we cant rely on my sense of direction." She stated. She pulled her bag up, over her shoulders and glanced back inside the underground sanctuary, mentally checking things off to make sure she didn't forget anything.
"Oh, and one more thing." She held out a single finger to Anders as a thought popped into her mind.
"If we so much as even glimpse a silencer, I'm going for it. No way am I going to let you show me up as the better marksman on this squad." She declared with a small laugh.

Rei listened, as Youta tried to be, well, himself first. As she listened she noticed his long glance at Kasumi, it was obvious now, that Youta had interest on Kasumi, and the way he went about it in Rei's opinion, was like he was in a romance anime at the start. Yet, Rei wasn't the only one whom noticed, Sera did as well, whom as per normal from what Rei's seen, acted possessively with Kasumi, as if she were shooting down the poor fool. Moving along Blade had spoken, with the day's duties, Blade and Sera were on scavenging Duty in the suburbs, while Kasumi and Anders investigating in the business district, and her and Youta were off to try and lessen the numbers of the dead. Taking note of what Rei was doing, she switched out her munition supplies, taking up Silencers rather than gleamers and a few normal bullets. Though she looked at Sera again, whom threatened for Kasumi's safety at the cost of Anders' electronics, while Kasumi wanted a silencer for some reason, Anders was more or less skirting around their attacks, though Rei looked at Youta, her sharp, crimson, eyes looking at Youta, and spoke, a little quieter, since she wasn't a loud person in general, "To get Downtown, we'll take alleys and side streets. They're less populated than taking the main streets, and less destroyed, since there were less people there at the time." she then turned to Sera, and spoke to her, her volume not being loud again, "Sera. If I find any candy machines of some sort, I'll go on and loot it for you. I doubt I'll find anything, but, worth a shot."

Youta nods thoughtfully at the duties of others, rescue, salvage.. And to his surprise third squad on kill duty. One of the other squads usually handle the task, still Youta is confident that they will do well. An opportunity to prove themselves. Youta notices Rei noticing Sera noticing Youta notice Kasumi, God is everybody against me going after Kasumi. And the. The gates creak , sera and Blade leave, but before Kasumi leaves Youta calls out to her. "Good luck Lue, you to Anders." He waves them off with a grin and turns to Rei as she speaks. Rei os right, avoiding trouble until they reach the destination is probably for the best. "That's totally right, so we should get going I've got all I'll need. Third squad move out." Youta is still as playful but he is speaking more at Rei's level now. The blonde walks a bit ahead of Rei as they near their destination, skirting allies and navigating backstreets as was agreed upon. Youta stops walking in one of the allies. "Hey Rei I know you probably don't like me that much, I mean I'm just so loud. Anyway what do you think of Kasumi and I? I've known her from school and I know you saw me looking at her this morning. God Youta stop rambling, what I mean to ask is if I'm doing alright in pursuing her under the circumstances." The blonde fiddles with his blade nervously looking at the ground, not used to talking like this with his partner.

Quietly Rei had moved out, it was a normal thing for her to keep the pace moderately fast, and especially stealthy, checking corners before moving around them, and even silently engaging single zombies from behind and bloodying them up with often an ice pick she just so happened to find in the city. Though as she stopped briefly, checking around a corner, Youta spoke, saying something about not liking him much because he's loud, which wasn't all true. Rei, to be clearly honest, was alright with Youta, since he never really did much that would anger her, she's just distant to everyone rather than a few. However, the second part, more or less confirmed what Rei already knew, that Youta liked Kasumi, as she peered around the corner, she saw nothing, but spoke, quietly and calmly,

"In my honest opinion. You wouldn't get far with Sera there. She protects Kasumi more than anyone else. So you have little chance of getting the girl." her words were sharp, but not cruel, he wanted honesty and Rei doesn't sugarcoat anything. Though upon realization she was good, she spoke again, "We're clear. We'll follow Gold Street to downtown. Then. We just pick off what we can." soon moving from the cover, she looked back at Youta, taking out a small handgun with pink on the grip, it look weathered, but Rei knew it could fire, she looked at Youta, crimson eyes and all, the small caliber handgun in hand, grip facing her ally, "If worst comes to worst. Use this. And save a bullet for yourself." A remark that he's going into more melee range of the infected, which meant he could get grabbed at any point. So she wanted to make sure that no ally will have to be shot by her, and soon proceeded down Gold Street, towards what could be a hell for her.

Youta looks at the ground somewhat solemnly, taking in what Rei has to say. Youta figured as much, if he wanted anything to do he would have to figure out what Sera was all about. Youta looks up and into Rei's eyes, his own orbs projecting an unusual seriousness. "Thanks Rei, that might have not been what I wanted to hear but it was what I needed to hear. I do appreciate you're quiet ways. Anyway we have some killing to do. How about we get to it then?" Youta smiles a toothy grin again only to give Rei a thumbs up, returning to his goofy antics. He stops in place when Rei offers the blonde a small nun, her words are morbid but realistic. Youta's smile only slightly dips, "How macabre, I seriously don't hope it comes to that. I have people that I need to make smile." Even though the statement sounded arrogant Youta meant it, and he takes the gun eyeing the piece before pocketing it.

The two walked in silence for a while, making their way through less populated streets until they take Gold Street until they reached the downtown area. Youta unsheathed the sword putting on a brave smile. "So I hack and slash and you go pew-pew bang-bang?" Youta puts the idea of slaying the undead into the context of a bad joke, he looks down the street starting to see more and more of the undead. He knows it's about to begin. "Ready when you are my lady." Youta proclaims in a mix gentleman voice.

Rei listened to her ally, as per normal, it wasn't that shocking that she'd listen to what others had said. Though as she looked about the city, looking at the carnage, and especially the dead, how could one even imagine to survive the mess that was caused? Yet as she watched, something caught her eye, and surprised her as it did, since it was some sort of suitcase falling from the sky, with the way it tumbled, it was apparant that it was knocked from a floor of some sort, so it came from a building, as Rei scanned the ground, she saw something else, instead of the dead she noticed bandits, whom swarmed around the bag like a pack of hyenas, cackling and everything, unaware of the hidden walkers. As the bag hit the ground, with a loud thud and soon it's contents flew, from what Rei could see, it was food, this easily got weapons drawn as Rei looked to her partner, her eyes, showing her cut-throat nature when it came to food. Being where she was from, one would fight to the death for their next meal, and while the bandits almost scrambled to collect the food, Rei spoke quietly, "Those looters have food. And from the sound and how the food burst out, they have a lot of it. I don't care what Blade said we are to do, nor do I give a damn what you do. I'm going for that to ensure we have a meal." her words were quiet as normal, while she moved, going for a flank, not caring for what Youta did, so long as he stayed out of her way. Guns drawn she peered around a corner, though stealth was not something Rei was good at, and one of the bandits shot up, yelling do his allies,

"Hey, guys! We got a little rat here!" he yelled, with the other two looking up, with weapons in hand, on a quick analysis, Rei was outgunned, as they had automatic fire, though at a glance, they had no idea how to even so much as fire the weapon properly, a gun like that as Rei remembered, was best fired two handed, while it can be fired with one, it would be horribly inaccurate, and it was likely that they'd miss, that is, if it weren't for the fact that there was three of them, each with one of these now buzzing weapons as they ripped into the wall briefly. Admittedly Rei was spooked, having never been in a fight where she was outgunned like this. With a sigh, Rei picked up the communicator, and spoke into it, to hopefully awaken the hornet's nest that were her friends, something she knew over the time that was spent, Blade would come running to any woman in distress.

"This is Rei." That was the first transmission through the cackling radio, "I'm currently in a gunfight against possibly five enemies. I could use aid on Gold Street towards downtown." soon her eyes turned to Youta, whom she knew was at a disadvantage, and soon shouted at him, "Stay down or you'll get shot! Let me handle this mess!" and soon after the buzzing sound had echoed into the air, and bullets flew by Rei, whom laughed, They're better with them than I thought. she thought snickering, this was something she knew, gunfights. With that, she moved, firing at the three, causing them to duck into cover, and thus the fight began.

It happened quick, the tag team had been minding their own buisness and then a thud caught Rei's attention. Youta hadn't noticed and turned around when he noticed the woman had stopped following. He then saw the raiders, the food, and the look on Rei's face. Knowing a fight was about to ensue Youta readied his blade, nodding seriously at what Rei had to say. There had to be enough food to last them at least a while longer, people needed that food. Youta assessed the weaponry of the bandits, Youta exhaled audibly. Automatic weapons, always with guns, Youta hates guns they are so boring. Though his sword would be of little help Youta came prepared for situations like these. Rei with her guns was surely outgunned and and couldn't do this alon and for some reason Youta doubted his ability to kill with the toy pistol he had been given by Rei. Youta ran to cover as the gunfight began, not waiting to be joined by Rei who he knew to be self-sufficient. Then he heard her voice, calling out for help. It stung Youta's Pride a bit that his partner had so little faith in him and would do this without consulting him first. "Remember this isn't my first gun fight Rei, it's like my second or third." He corrected her with a classic cheesy smile. He spoke as rummaging through his bag of equipment. "I have tricks up my sleeve for when this piece of junk becomes useless fast." He tapped the hilt of his saber before grinning at what he has in hand. Remember before this we were send on raids a lot, I've picked up a few toys that I thought might come in handy later." Rei held one of the devices in his right hand and offered the one in his right hand to Rei. "Yeah Rei I know awesome I'm packin friggin grenades! Three to be exact, can't be sure what kind they are. I'm not Anders or anything and I though he'd confiscate them. So want to take one for a throw?"

❝Grr, I wanna team up with Sumi one day...❞


【ɗιαƖσgΟ…Ρ” cσƖσя:#d62e28】







Sera was about to enter the apartment, grinding her teeth in frustration at how Blade always seemed to be super nice with everyone, even bandits that clearly meant more harm than good. It pissed her off that he could be so naive to want to offer them a spot in their safe area - food was already hard enough to get as it is. The only way to survive is by protecting those around you, and getting rid of any possible threats! Why didn't Blade understand this? "What if one day food became a real problem?" Sera asked, suddenly annoyed, staring at the boss. "And the bandits wouldn't make things any easier. Some of that food could go to your sister, or to Kasumi, do you really want to waste it on trash like bandits?" Before the argument could continue, however, Sera suddenly received a message from Rei - something about a fight? It seemed a fire was lit in Serafina's eyes and she grinned eagerly, full of excitement. Before Blade could say anything, Sera responded to Rei's call for help. "Sera here, I'm on my way!" She aimed her Combustion Module behind her, ready to start it up. "Hold out until I get there!" The fire girl snatched up one of the candies into her mouth, sucking on it and smiling at Blade before boosting herself, using her own lifespan as an engine to speed towards Gold Street, near the downtown and the larger buildings and corporate skyscrapers.

With the fire burning behind her, Sera shot like a rocket through the familiar streets, dodging a zombie entirely as she moved, nearing Rei's location on the radar device. She was almost there, and it was almost time. Sera's eyes burned with a deep hunger for fighting and for killing - what else was she even good at, if not this? Five enemies? If Sera could get close enough, that wouldn't even almost be a problem! And at last, Sera made her announcement of her joining the battle with a burst of fire, creating smoke to ruin everyone's vision. "Rei, Youta, fall back to a better position while the smoke has them distracted!" Hoping they would listen, Sera slipped through the smoke, following the sounds of gunfire and yells. Like a predator the girl stalked, finding her first target, one to the left of the looter's formation. She burnt him alive, enjoying his screams of pain and fear - a fried human corpse was all that remained. More yells - the others were going to investigate what had happened. Another burst of flame and another looter caught alight. Unfortunately, the smoke chose that time to disperse, revealing Sera's location to the remaining three enemies, and they all decided to focus her.

"Alright, I've got their attention!" Sera announced as she ran - trying to stay ahead to avoid their bullets, feeling the blood pumping through her heart with excitement. An incredibly happy smile was on the fire girl's face. Sera dipped and dodged through the alleys and streets, three enemies on the pursuit, shooting and shouting. She had a headache, she'd used up too much fire, but it was fine. Because this was the only thing Sera could ever hope to be good for.

Blade glared to Sera but before he could answer, the communicator began to go off. He paused hearing that Rei was in some sort of gun fight with bandits. He hoped nothing would go wrong. He paused seeing Sera begin to leave. "Dammit Sera! Wait!" He said before clutching his fist. He knew they were going to kill them and take whatever they had on person or in camp. He didn't understand how they could so easily become the very savages that they were fighting. He quickly began to speak on the communicator. "Sera will be there shortly. Keep casualties to as minimal as possible and don't you DARE touch anything of theirs. That is an order." He said in an abnormally stern voice. "I will not allow any of you to become the very savages that we are supposedly protecting the civilization from. I don't give a damn if they have food or gold up their ass, you do not touch a thing. Apprehend them and avoid killing them as much as possible. Were suppose to be killing zombies people not each other!" He took a deep breath before looking away in the distance. "You have your orders."

He slowly stepped out of the vehicle and began to explore the store himself. His head was a bit hazy still concerned about if they would listen or not. "Sure there is a possible chance that food could be a problem but were making so much progress. We can produce food at any moment. Dammit those bandits are as much in hell as we are. So why fight about it?" He slowly leaned his head against the wall before hearing a small noise. It was a voice for sure but it seemed timider than usual. Maybe a bit too soft.

Rei had moved, from where she took cover, firing three times per gun, six bullets in total. All six had hit centre mass on another bandit, having been distracted by Sera and his ally's spontaneous combustion. Though a matter of minutes ago, Rei was pinned with Youta, whom had handed a grenade to her. With a swift decline Rei had fired a few rounds, blindly to put a couple of heads down, to little avail. Though Sera came blitzing in with her fire. Rei and Sera alone was a fair enough fight in Rei's eyes. Not to say Youta was weak, but Rei wanted to protect her partner more than most others. Although Rei's face soon became colder as Blade chimed in, which angered Rei, She knew the first part, though the next bit he said was what got Rei angry

"...Keep casualties to as minimal as possible and don't you DARE touch anything of theirs. That is an order. I will not allow any of you to become the very savages that we are supposedly protecting the civilization from. I don't give a damn if they have food or gold up their ass, you do not touch a thing. Apprehend them and avoid killing them as much as possible. Were suppose to be killing zombies people not each other!"

'Who in the hell does he think he is?' she yelled in her head, picking up her communicator, and replying with her tone sounding about as mad as she is, "I don't give a DAMN about letting them live, know why? They shot at me first, with the intent to kill me." she paused, to make sure the connection was stable, "I couldn't give more of a damn if you want to save everyone in the city from the dead and these mongrels. It's for food, and that's something we NEED. Thus I'll take it from them if they don't die first" as Rei put her communicator back, she was sure to switch it off, 'can't have the battery dying now.' She thought, knowing she just probably angered Blade, though her eyes went to Sera, "Sera, move! I'll cover you!" she yelled firing at the last man, missing intentionally just to get his head down, feeling the heat of the battle move through her body, Rei may not admit it, but fighting was thrilling, the adrenaline was easily going through her body and mind, no longer caring for if she had angered Blade.

❝Grr, I wanna team up with Sumi one day...❞


【ɗιαƖσgΟ…Ρ” cσƖσя:#d62e28】







"Anything for you, Kasumi!" Sera said cheerfully, dodging another bullet and ducking as she continued her dash.

Honestly, even though she heard Rei and Blade arguing on the radio, Sera wasn't really listening. When three men are chasing you and shooting at you and you have a headache and your head feels dizzy because you've strained yourself and are overusing your fire abilities, there are more important things to worry about than listening to your boss and the new girl fight and bicker like a married couple. She wasn't too worried, whatever it was about - what Sera needed to do was keep sprinting as fast as she possibly could. She heard gunshots from another direction - Rei was coming to help now, covering the fire girl for an advantage. Though to be fair, Sera was having way too much fun with this - adrenaline was coursing through her and every nerve was primed for action. Even if the head pain was real, this was way too fun. Hells yes, this is what she lived for, even more than candy lollies in her mouth!

With Rei's covering fire, Sera managed to zip around a corner and jump up on the fire escape, panting lightly to catch her breath. One of the men stopped the chase to fire at Rei - hopefully missing - and Sera jumped from her vantage point at the last two, knocking one out with a kick and dodging a sudden knife from the other in order to shoot a burst of flames to his clothing. Screams of pain and the smell of burning flesh filled the air and Sera took out her small hand gun to finish the job, ending the man's suffering. Now it was just Rei and the last one and when Sera aimed her gun at him he suddenly spun around, fired and -

Pain exploded somewhere in Sera's torso region and she buckled to her knees letting out a grunt. The last bandit moved to escape but Sera still managed to aim and fire, hitting him in the back of the knee, toppling him over, crippled. With the battle over, Serafina examined her wound, feeling dizzy from the exertion. Her palm was bloody but it turned out the bullet hit a window and it was just glass shards in her side. She smiled slightly to herself, feeling stupid for getting hit in the first place. "Mi-mission accomplished, Rei.." The girl groaned. She knew instinctively it wasn't fatal - heck, after some bandages and a few hours she'd be completely fine, minus some pain.

Though the wound itself wasn't bad, that in conjunction with overusing her fire really took the stamina out of the girl. Her legs felt rubbery, unable to sustain her weight. With a grimace, she picked up the radio. "All hostiles down, two survivors. I'm - I probably need medical aid..."

Blade slowly began to approach the small whispering pile under the blankets. He was cautious and hand his hand on his sword ready to strike if it were a zombie. However, the whispers were almost human. Maybe even human. He quickly grabbed the blanket and pulled it back only to gasp slightly. "W.... Huh? What's.... What are you doing here?" He didn't expect to see two children cowarding in fear. The youngest seemed to at least be 5 and the older one no older than 7. The oldest one grabbed a large stick and began to flail it around at an attempt to hurt Blade. "Get away! Blade paused and backed up a bit. "Hey hey. It's ok. I won't hurt you I promise." He smiled. "I'm a walker. We protect humans. Now calm down." Soon the child began to calm down but the youngest began to whine. "Where's daddy?" He said. His brother pouted and looked to Blade. " Can.. You help us find our dad?" Blade smiled and nodded as he picked up his bag of loot. "Of course. And you know it's a bit dangerous for you all to be staying out in this place. I'll even take you to the base so you can be safe. Alright? Now come on. My rides outside." The two quickly latched onto Blades legs in fear. He smiled and happily escorted them outside.

Once they were all seated in the cart, he looked to them. "So, about your dad. Can you tell me a little about him so I can have a good idea of where to find him?" The oldest one pouted. "I... The last time I saw him he was heading down town with his group of people. He said that they would be able to find some food and when they were done they would come back. They had a lot of guns though..." Blade's eyes widened. This couldn't be the children of one of the bandits, could it? He bit his lip hoping that wasn't possible but if it were, the truth was inevitable. "Ok... I'll take you there and... We can look." He said in a gloomy tone
