    One For All, All for Some [Job]

    Post by Mao on 9th July 2015, 9:09 pm

    Spoiler:
    Job Title: The Fourth Musketeer

    Rank: C

    Player Requirements: C-Ranked Wizard(s) or Two D-Ranked Wizards. Light Guild / Alignment ONLY. No Wizard above C-Rank will receive the bonus XP reward.

    Job Requirements: Thread must be 30 posts long. 250 Words per post. Must Defeat at Least Three Groups of Enemies and the Boss. After defeating three groups of enemies "STEALTH" becomes optional, and you may keep rolling; and avoiding the enemies that appear by hiding and using espionage within Townsend Mansion until the Boss appears.

    Job Location: Earthland (Minstrel), LeBuque Town

    Job Description: 'Musketeers' that's what wizards are called in Minstrel. Charged with keeping the peace in the entire nation, the Musketeers are an ancient organization that accept only wizards into their Ranks. Unlike Fiore; they do not have an organization charged with keeping their Musketeers in check; rather, the Musketeers, protect the civilians of Minstrel and are the official lawkeepers of the nation.

    However, there is trouble afoot in the elegant town of Lebuque. It seems; some Dark Wizards from Fiore have managed to break into the house of one of the most famous nobles in all of Minstrel. Sir Townsend. They have taken him, and his entire family hostage; and have laid demands of 1 million jewels down or it will mean their death.

    The Musketeers are all to familiar with Dark Wizards, but felt it was best to contact the Guilds of Fiore for help against their own natives.

    Your mission is simple; infiltrate the Mansion and free the Townsend family from the grasp of the Dark Wizards from Fiore.

    The Musketeers have assigned three of their very finest Musketeers to make sure it goes smoothly.

    Their names are Atha, Atma, and Portha. Blonde, Red-Head, and Brunette; respectively. These girls are REAL lookers; but don't let that fool you. All of them are extremely skilled wizards, fem fatales; and use both Gun Magic and Sword Magic at levels that far exceed this Jobs requirements.

    However, they are personal friends of Sir Townsend and his family; and will stop at nothing to help you free him.

    Meet up with the Three Musketeers at the location that the Musketeers organization has told you they'll be waiting for you.

    Enemies:

    Weak: Wind-Make Wizard x2 - Goes down in one hit of C-Ranked damage, or two hits of D-Ranked damage. Will target Lightning, Water, and Projectile Users first.  

    Normal: Earth-Make Wizard x2 - Goes down in two hits of C-Ranked damage, or four hits of D-Ranked damage. Will target Water and Wind type opponents first.

    Strong: Summoner Wizard x2 - Goes down in four hits of C-Ranked damage. Or eight hits of D-Ranked damage. Will target Darkness or Light type opponents first.  

    Boss: Teleportation Wizard - Goes down in 10 hits of C-Ranked damage. Or twenty hits of D-Ranked damage. Will avoid anything less than a C-Ranked attack with an instant teleport without even trying. Will teleport behind you and attempt to use melee (hands and feet) strikes in combination with his teleportaton magics. Also may grab an item and warp it above your head to fall on you; or other tricky surprises.

    Reward: A Green "Musketeer" outfit to wear when you're in Minstrel, showing that you are always welcome in Minstrel and are considered an official wizard there, just like you are in Fiore. 15k Jewels. Equivalent EXP of THREE Jobs of your Rank. May only complete this Job once.

    ”Passport!”

    The voice rang out, somewhat startling the cloaked woman as she turned to stare at the man by the gate. Wearing a military uniform with two rows of buttons on his jacket, the entire thing looked more befitting of someone of a higher station than a man standing on the borders of a country asking for one’s papers. ”Passport?” she blinked, mind catching up with his exotic style of dress.

    ”Indeed madam,” he slightly bowed, an arm curling around his stomach as he did so yet his eyes remain trained on her, ”I am sorry madam, for I am Frederik, the Checker of Passports. None may enter our beloved country of Minstrel until we know who it is. It is my so sworn duty! I-“

    Call it rude, but the man appeared ready to go on a long tirade so she merely forked the thing over with an expectant yet blank look. It seemed this time she caught the man unawares as he didn’t quite know how to respond to the action. ”You…wanted to check it?” she prodded, ushering her hand forward another inch.

    [color=gray}”Ah…yes,”[/color] the man coughed and took the proffered item. He “mhmm”d a couple of times as he slowly read over the thing, apparently checking it at his leisure. The actions hardly bothered the feminine mage as she continued to stare at the man, failing to realize it was making him somewhat uncomfortable. Finally he closed it with a small ‘snap’ and handed it back, ”All right my lady, everything appears in order: welcome to the wonderful country of Minstrel!”

    A small smile and a bit of gratitude was all he received before she tucked the item back into her bag. Dipping her head slightly, Mao murmured, ”Hope you have a lovely day, Frederik: Checker of Passports,” before going on her way as he returned the gesture.

    The country certainly built with a certain sense of splendor, the sheer size of some of the buildings alarming Mao as the traveler craned her head back just to stare at some of them. Banners zig-zagged down the streets between some of the luxurious buildings and shops almost as if they had a festival waiting just around the corner. Mao could just about see the confetti falling now in droves, matching the ferocity of a blizzard. Yet for as lively as the buildings and scenery looked the people turned out to be far more subdued than she initially imagined.

    Whereas the Checker of Passports turned out to be jovial even if a bit lofty about his position, those who dared walk the streets currently peered around as if something or someone might jump out at them at any moment. Some strutted with the utmost confidence, though their clothing didn’t match the more extravagant, lord-and-lady style that a lot of townspeople donned. ’No, they appear far more like back home.’ They paid her little mind, though Mao had also taken to standing at the entrance of an alleyway like some bum getting their taste of the rich life via fantasies and visuals.

    The long cloak she wore for the sake of traveling covered her ears and stretched to incorporate most of her tail, though with the buildings at her sides the thing went largely unnoticed behind her. Fabric obscured her even as it set her apart, the loose pants tucked into the boots that didn’t quite reach her knees, a scarf woven around her body partially hiding the long sleeved shirt that clung to her body beneath it, and face ultimately hidden by the combination of hood and shadows. Compared to the nobles running about – if they were nobles or normal citizens – she looked like a ragamuffin that just wandered in from the deserts.

    ”Psst.”

    Ears twitched at the sound of the air spontaneously leaving someone’s balloon…somewhere. Mao continued to watch as some goons walked down the main street, shoving aside one of the locals in their path.

    ”Psst!”

    There it was again, ears swiveling as they caught the same noise only with a hint of urgency.

    ”Oh for Pete’s sake!” A hand latched onto her upper arm, Mao’s head twisting around until her neck made the smallest of crack noises and caused her to wince. A slightly annoyed blond woman huffed at her, peering down a little with the few inches she had on Mao’s height. Blue eyes judged her silently, Mao meanwhile noting the odd white diamonds adoring her cheeks before the girl sighed, ”Yeh, must be you, huh? The Fiore wizard? You smell a little like the visitors, but if you’re with them I’ll take you out now and be done with it.”

    ’I couldn’t escape this grip without incurring some serious attention.’ The wiser of the two moves appeared to be going along with this strange, mysterious woman, though her connection to everything couldn’t yet be placed. ”I am from there, though no ally of their’s,” she motioned her head towards a pair walking the streets, ”you smell of here…who are you?”

    The girl smirked before dragging Mao along, merely tossing over her shoulder, ”I’ll explain in a bit, just hold yer horses.”

    Down through the winding roads they went until she all but shoved the confused Sabertooth mage through a door, slamming it shut and setting the bolt in place with a solid ‘thunk.’ Two more cloaked figures inhabited the room, standing from their chairs the moment the other two arrived. ’Judging by their positions…they have their weapons at the ready. An unfavorable stance for me by far.’ Something about the first girl struck Mao as strong to say the least, an unwavering power easily overshadowing the crystal mage’s abilities. These two, alongside their air of mystery, only furthered the threatening air around her as the girl could feel the onset of fight-or-flight mode. She held it off though, instead making her brave inquiry.

    ”Who are you three?”

    One of the hooded figures barked in laughter, startling even their companions with the suddenness and volume, ”HA! I like you, pretty bold there. For all you know we’re about to have our wicked way with you and you’re demanding names!” Flipping back the hood vivid crimson hair unwound from the light bun held only by the hood, a pair of chopsticks jutting out from the base of her ponytail. Bangs framed her face, eyes easily visible though a pair of orange shades kept the color hidden as she grinned widely, ”You can call me Portha. It’s a…family name, if you will.”

    Resigned to her fate the third and final one pulled back the cloth hiding her identity, luscious dark brown locks falling in a wave – the only one of the three with unbound hair as a pale, crystalline blue set of eyes stared back. The mask of seriousness broke as she offered a small smile, ”I am Atma, and you’ve already met Atha. We are but a few of the musketeers of Minstrel. Think of us not unlike your guild mages, except we are all for one, and one for all. We are bound only by our code to protect our country, and require little more than that.” It almost sounded like she might be hinting at, “We’re better than you,” though Mao couldn’t quite say for certain. Her tone didn’t convey it, so in the end Mao let it slide, not particularly concerned anyways.

    ”Simply put: a few a yer baddies slipped over the borders n’ decided to try n’ set up shop here,” the blond one dubbed Atha chimed in, cutting off her colleague in order to cut-to-the-chase, ”but we don’t take too kindly to strangers comin’ in, taking good folk hostage and demanding money for lives…I mean, not like you guys do either, but we figured since they’re from your neck of the woods it’s only fair you come ta help out. Fair’s fair after all, right? Buuuut we wouldn’t let a single gal like yerself go it alone – and no offense, we’ve never heard a ya so prolly fer the better we tag along n’ make sure it all goes smoothly. We’re not too keen on watching a friend’s head roll if we can do somethin’ about it.”

    From what Mao could tell of their power – from merely standing in the same room – they oozed competence and capability, as well as simple magical prowess. In all likelihood they didn’t really require her assistance beyond a fourth set of eyes and distraction for the enemies…’As Atha said: fair’s fair. It wouldn’t do well to let another country deal with our problematic citizens, so I should at least strive to pull my weight.' They all awaited her answer in silence as she in turn sized each one up visually, Portha offering her a wink when it was her turn. Opting to ignore that as she didn’t know what it meant, Mao nodded, ”Fair’s fair, and I did already accept the job so it’d be silly to come here and not lift a finger. I wouldn’t want to invalidate Frederik the Check of Passport’s efforts either.”

    Portha snorted behind her hand, waving away the questioning glance, ”Ignore that…pffft…can’t believe he still calls himself that.” She murmured the last part before devolving into giggles and then hidden from view by the unbearably tall brunette woman.

    ”Excellent, I hope you’ve brought whatever you need as things will get a bit dicey. Getting to the mansion alone will take a bit of foot work as it resides upon the hill and the man’s cronies roam the streets as you’ve likely noticed. No offense, but you’re not exactly subtle,” those eyes that looked as though they could pierce the soul shot towards the extra limb jutting from Mao’s backside, her tail curling as if suddenly shy or nervous around the Amazonian woman. Just as quickly they returned to lock onto Mao’s as she motioned towards Portha, ”For now you’ll travel with Portha while Atha and I take a different route. Hopefully by traveling in smaller formations the enemy won’t catch on as quickly to our intentions and if one party should fall we’ll still have the other continue onwards. It’s likely you’ll still run into some of his henchmen, so try to take them out as quietly as possible or risk fighting more allies. I’d suggest avoiding any particularly noisy or destructive spells.”

    Finally quiet settled upon them again, all three girls regarding Mao curiously as she simply stared back. It seemed they wanted an answer? ”Sounds good to me. Shall we begin then?”

    Ready to disperse, those plans flew right out the nonexistent windows of the room as a strong force blew down the door. All four immediately put up a hand to block out the slight wind and dust that came with it, though none were prepared for the secondary gusts that blew through the now open doorway, knocking back both the tall Atma and bubbly Portha thanks to their proximity. Atha shoved Mao to the side, the girl already ducking beneath a table even as the blond musketeer threw herself towards the opposite wall, eager to hide behind a book case near the door. ”C’mout, c’mout wherever you are, my little pets,” a voice purred from the dust cloud as two dark figures appeared through the brown haze.

    The groans of the other two women gave him reason to laugh, the noise sharp and tailed with an unpleasant squeak noise as if his lungs refused air entry to further the action. ”Beautiful, simply beautiful. I suppose we should report that we already found the hapless heroes! Who’s have thought that the musketeers were really so eas-“ A solid one-two punch combo to the face shut him up right quick, the man’s body flying up into the air and crashing hard onto the table. Rather than break the furniture proved very sturdy, the legs merely scraping against the ground as the air whooshed right out. He’d be bruised in the morning, but it’d be nothing compared to the man’s head thanks to Atha’s quick fists.

    ”Oh gods, Bob, what-“ A figure shot out at the man and interrupted any further questions as his body was forced forward onto a knee. Small crack noises could be heard and even Mao winced, albeit partially from the exuberant force she’d applied to the joint, but mostly the pained and somewhat breathless elongated squeak the man exuded before falling limply to the ground with an even weaker groan.

    ’Perhaps too much?’

    The men lay knocked out cold and lathered with layers of ropes, binding them together and without the full usage of arms nor legs. The sheer length and quality of the job left the short Saber girl impressed, ’I wonder if knot tying is something taught to all musketeers or a qualifying skill?’ After ensuring neither man would awaken any time soon the pair checked on the briefly winded musketeers, both relieved to find that neither woman suffered more than a minor daze from the sudden attack. From there the quartet ensured that neither gentleman would be following them even once they came back from their concussion-induced slumber.

    ”That should hold them, though I’ll contact a few friends to come pick them up. Certainly don’t want them getting free and wasting our time again,” Atma decreed, a hand gingerly prodding her head for any sensitive spots. Nothing she couldn’t handle she decided, not so much as wincing as she pulled the black glove back onto her hand, ”Nothing else has changed. Atha and I shall head out this entrance and head toward Lord Townsend’s residence a few streets down, and Portha and the Fiorian newcomer shall circle around the building and travel down the winding side streets. If possible don’t attract too much attention, but if you do…well, I suppose take out as many as you can and provide a decent enough distraction so that the other group may continue less hindered.”

    Each pulled their hoods back over, Mao’s light one standing out against their dark ones, but such couldn’t be helped at this time as the quartet split into their pairs with silent well-wishes of success to their companions. Lives were on the line after all.

    She had to know though, the details a little vague from the initial request. ”How many are hostage? The request mentioned Townsend and his family: how many are they holding hostage?”

    ”There’s him, his wife, and two children. Some of the staff are also currently held hostage, but many of them were able to escape alongside the eldest child – who contacted us in the first place. As far as we know they’re holding the staff in a storage room as they’re not particularly concerned with them, but those friends Atma’s calling will be able to help the staff: our priority will be Townsend and his family, and taking down the asshole who dared to think he could waltz in here without any repercussions.”

    A full family basically, meaning that at any time one or more could be used against the lot. What were the chances they could free a few members before the group realized what was going on? ’Then again I wouldn’t be surprised if they kept them all together as well…keeping Townsend’s family before him with danger visibly prominent could work just as well as stashing them in another room and letting his imagination go wild. Guess we won’t know until we arrive.’ Given a chance though she’d prefer to save the family and get them out of harm’s way before going after the primary target. It would ensure less potential casualties.

    They dashed down a few roads before their pace slowed, trying to avoid various stationed guards. ”Damn, feels like there’s more of these rats wandering about. Gotta give the guy credit: he’s either got a hell of a following or has some decent funds. Probably not the first time he’s pulled this kind of stunt.” Portah gritted her teeth in frustration, Mao just barely making out a hint of the pearly whites. It reminded her of the leader’s demands: one million jewels. Either this ‘Sir Townsend’ was an influential person worthy of such a price or the perpetrator was confident in his ability to repel any rebels.

    ’Then again he could simply be underestimating the musketeers.’ She wouldn’t be surprised as sometimes Minstrel’s eccentric ways went under criticism in Fiore. Frederik the “Checker of Passports” title alone would be chuckle worthy, and their fashion was certainly different. ’But appearances aren’t everything. Just because they’re different doesn’t mean they’re not just as strong if not more so…’ An unfamiliar feeling bubbled up, one Mao suspected to be sympathy since she often suffered scrutiny in the midst of crowds.

    ”Oh please! Don’t hurt me!”

    The cry caught both girl’s attention, steps halting before they could round the corner to the next street.

    ”Cough it up lady, we haven’t got all day, y’hear?”

    ”Yeah, be a real shame if somethin’ happened to that pretty mug o’ yours.”

    The sickeningly crooning voices all but forced them to turn back around, Portha peering around the corner. There sat a woman, freshly pushed to the ground with her shopping basket splayed across the ground. Fruit and veggies laid in various states from completely mashed and ruined to a little scuffed, one poor apple kicked by a hooligan wizard and smashed into the side of a nearby residence. The victimized woman laid there, supporting her body with one arm as the other stayed close to her chest, fist clutched in fright before her chin as the voluminous skirt very slowly deflated. Frightened, glassy eyes stared up at the two, tall foreign men as they likely leered down at the beautiful blond trembling before them.

    About to speak, Mao felt alarm as she watched Portha proceed to draw her sword before a single word could be uttered, ”Wai-“

    ”No time!” she whispered harshly, already charging around the corner.

    The sudden footsteps caught their attention, both men turning on the spot to see the red head almost upon them. Both grinned, eager for another “pretty little thing” that approached, ready to add her to their collection. They never noticed the arrow until it flew past their new prey, exploding before the trio.

    ”Please run while you’re safe,” Mao called to the woman, helping her up as the three rubbed at their eyes, the spell taking over, ”and please stay inside for the day. I promise you by the morning all will be well again.”

    Spoiler:
    Name: Moonstone: Doubt
    Rank: D
    Type: Illusion/AoE
    Duration: 2 posts
    Cooldown: 4 posts
    Description: Meant purely for enemies, a moonstone crystal the size of a tennis ball will be chucked towards an enemy or small group of enemies. Up to three people within a 5 meter radius of the cast crystal will fall prey to the illusion. The crystal picks up on an unresolved regret the person has (IF they have one) and creates a replica of either the involved person or one of them. From there the illusion will try to create further regret and dark feelings towards the event. Works on people equal or lower than Mao’s rank.
    Strengths:

    • Can cause a temporary distraction.
    • Works on multiple targets.
    • Mao cannot be affected by it.

    Weaknesses:

    • The illusion disappears if attacked.
    • Allies might get caught in it as well.
    • Heat-based magic can destroy the crystal before it even activates.
    • Can be knocked away.

    Her vision swam, everything becoming hazy as if she had to gaze through water to see the world. Every little action caused it to tremble and shimmer though, causing a slight dizzying sensation as something formed through the fog. ’No…it can’t be…you’re….you’re…’ her mind started screaming, voice lodged securely in her throat as the visage became clearer with every passing second. Dread filled her as the ghost of her past smiled gently before her, tears stinging the corners of the musketeer’s eyes at the nostalgic sight.

    ”Portha…”

    Even the voice matched, the girl choking on a sob that burst out unwillingly. Strength kept her hands at her side, sword still in hand, eager to avoid a weak display of bringing them to her face. She couldn’t let this moment bring her down and everything she’d worked for, couldn’t return to being that weak girl who’d cried endlessly at this man’s death.

    ”Portha…” He spoke again, uncertainty plaguing him despite the constant smile. It pained her to see him so unsure of what to say, grasping at the words as he momentarily looked to the ground for solace and strength. The haunting gaze returned to meet her’s, the smile turning even more gentle as he spoke again, ”you need to stop beating yourself up. I never held a grudge against you. We are siblings: we’re doomed to fight at least once in a while, but I still loved you despite our squabble. You need to let go of the anger though because it won’t help you. You weren’t at fault because I’m human, and I’m doomed to make mistakes. I’m not perfect like you believed.” He laughed a little, the sound echoing around her as she caught slight movement beyond her veil of vision. ”So please, move on from my death and live for yourself. You don’t need to become me, besides I’ll always be the more charming one.”

    Seeing that smile again warmed her heart, missing it for these past few years. It was as if a knot finally released its hold on her chest even as things faded away, a figure dashing away the illusion.

    ”Are you all right Portha?”

    There she went, charging in blindly when all Mao wanted to do was lure them away from their target. Instead they could’ve taken her hostage, and with things botched, well, Mao felt like she had little options right now. More than anything she wanted to secure the woman’s safety, so summoning one of those gemstone arrows and with the flick of her wrist the mage took aim and fired. ’It’d have been nice to avoid pulling anybody else needlessly into it, but I guess it can’t be helped. I hope she can forgive me.’ The deed was done, the arrow “detonating” once it came between the three targets. Soothing looking light washed over the three almost akin to water, dousing them in the illusionistic power of moonstone.

    Her opportunity couldn’t be lost right now as she placed the bow down atop some nearby crates and rushed towards the quartet. First she had to get the woman to safety, urging her away from the scene. As the relieved woman made her break for it Mao dawned her gauntlets with practiced ease and immediately socked one of the dazed mages with a quick one-two punch. The fact that he caught a bit of air time and landed in a trash can eased some of the minor annoyance she felt over this small debacle, and slamming the lid on his posterior became the icing on the cake.

    Whatever the other fellow was seeing must’ve been rather haunting as he’d backed up against the wall of the building, begging the figure not to hurt him. ’Sorry, but your wish is not my command I’m afraid,’ she thought with a small, wry twist of her lips, and proceeded to slam a fist into his gut before clocking him in the jaw with another solid blow with her right hook. Down he went, drooling into the cobblestone streets, peaceful compared to mere moments ago. They hadn’t been too bad, locked in their little bad-to-horrible visions.

    However her ally stood locked in one, tears streaming in tiny rivulets down her face and concerning Mao. Purposefully she stepped in front of Portha, looking to banish the illusion as she asked, ”Are you all right Portha?”

    Mao continued to stare with increasing worry until her partner finally snapped out of it. Her gaze was then returned with one of confusion, wonderment, and a little hurt as the woman shakily asked, ”Did…did you do that? Why?

    Ears fell backwards like a chastised animal, eyes sliding off to the side, ”I’m sorry to subject you to that, I’m afraid I can only somewhat control the targets for that spell. It’d been my hope to lure them away and use it solely on them, but then you charged in, and I wanted to make sure they didn’t harm the woman…I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have doubted your ability as you three definitely exceed my abilities.” It’d been wrong now that she thought about it, and should’ve trusted that the busty red-head could handle the situation with almost laughable ease. After all they didn’t really seem to need her there, they just wanted to make sure Fiore took responsibility in a manner of speaking.

    As Portha watched the girl’s confidence all but vanish she oddly felt a smile slowly slip into place. It’d been uncomfortable, but in an indescribable way it’d been cathartic too. ”Well…it’s not the way I would’ve liked it, or the timing…but, I think you might’ve helped me with something regardless. But…what was that spell anyway? I…I saw someone whose been dead for some time.”

    ”It was a moonstone spell of mine,” a hand scratched at the back of her head, tail swishing as Mao’s eyes darted around before finally settling back on Portha’s face, ”It’s not generally intended to be a nice spell though, despite the usually positive purposes behind crystals. One of the possible ways to use moonstone is for personal reflection, but I twisted it to evoke an image of someone’s doubt – usually involving some regret they have tied to another person. I suppose it could still be used for reflection, but generally the onset is sudden and jarring that the person shouldn’t have time to really deal with it themselves. Plus…it provides an opening anyways. I’m sorry, I should’ve freed you first then we could’ve dealt with the two together.”

    ”No, I needed it,” Portha reassured her, tone gentle as she placed a hand on Mao’s shoulder, ”Thank you.”

    Just when both thought they could move along Mao disappeared before Portha’s eyes, though not without a yelp of pain. The chunk of cobblestone tossed into her shoulder left the joint in pain even as the other side pinged her pain sensors as the girl’s body crashed into the ground. Voices quickly gave away the approaching group, each of them yelling something and obscuring one another’s words in the process. Regardless of the confusion their intent was clear: they wouldn’t be letting either woman go without a fight. A gun was in her hand faster than most of the guys could duck out of the way, two shots piercing the unlucky fellow in the back who failed to catch on fast enough. Firing a few false shots she managed to drag Mao into the general safety of an alley before a rock clipped her on the shoulder and a few created new dents in the other residence.

    ”Mao?!” the concerned girl pulled her back to the present.

    ”I’m fine,” she mumbled, a bit annoyed at the sudden attack, ”Mostly bruising. If it gets bad I can heal it later.” It would certainly be stiff, but it still worked even if begrudgingly and it hadn’t begun to swell yet. A simple cooling patch could probably hold off the process to a degree, but only after they weren’t under fire from the streets. Another man fell when he veered out of cover too long, trying to skim along the building to catch them unaware and instead facing a couple of shots. Mao couldn’t see where, just heard Portha mutter “Nailed ‘im” and accepted that. Hasty footsteps caught her attention, and with a groan the rabbit-eared mage hauled herself to her feet and sped up her steps towards the other end. Breath caught in her throat as the woman bided her time.

    ’Not yet…not yet…not…yet…’ her mind chanted until the sound became impossible to ignore, ’NOW!’ Out her fist went, kept low so metal-clad fist slammed right in the family jewels and the figure hunched over. She didn’t think he managed to push out a breathe before the impact, the air locked currently in his lungs, but right now she didn’t particularly care either. Slamming her fist on the back of his neck the man passed out, a pained groan finally slipping out as his mind drifted off.

    The last one met a most unfortunate end, trying to escape to warn his compatriots of the impending attack. It left him woefully open as they simultaneously threw rocks at his head, the clunky cobblestones hitting him near simultaneously and downing the man. It might’ve been comedic even if he were merely a crook stealing a purse or attempting to skip out on the bill of a restaurant. He followed the way of one of his earlier allies as they stuffed him in a trash can, making sure to tightly tuck his arms in so he couldn’t wiggle his way back out.

    Clapping her hands to clear off any dust or dirt, Portha nodded, ”That ought a keep him until the backup arrives and take these bastards into custody. You tied up the guy around the corner right?”

    ”Yes, while you were tying up the other two. It’s all a bit tangled, but I promise that was on purpose.” She couldn’t match the three’s skills when it came to roping up the bad guys and leaving them in a knot, but she could make it overly convoluted and confusing so when he woke up he wouldn’t know where to cut if there’d be any good places to start.

    ”Good, we just have another street to go so we’ll have to be careful about being spotted, c’mon!” Portha pulled on Mao’s good arm, the girl already applying the patch to keep the swelling down as they raced back towards the opposing alleyway. On the way the Sabertooth mage grabbed her bow, snapping the arms back into place and fitting it on her back once they stopped at the exit of their last alley. ”We’re here, stay low though there’s a patrol passing by.”

    For guards the guys weren’t quite taking the job seriously as they passed by the two women shared a look: they were talking about their favorite idols. They must’ve believed they had everything in the bag to not realize, though this might’ve also signaled the arrival of back up cleaning up some of the street patrols. ’Surely security would be a little tighter once they realized some of them had been taken out. It might increase though once they realize nobody’s returned in a good while.’ It offered them a window of opportunity to take advantage of as the pair raced to the tall, iron fence and gave a quick jump to scale most of it. By the time the two turned around at some of the clanging noises neither were in sight.

    ”Must’ve been a dumb pair of squirrels fighting again. Stupid things are nuts.”

    They slipped in through a servant’s entrance by the kitchen, the place relatively empty. Just beyond in a dining area for the staff however a fellow precariously perched on two chair legs sat with his feet kicked up on a table, half eaten apple in hand. He hummed a tune off key as he crunched at the perfectly crisp fruit, none the wiser as they crept up behind him and promptly kicked the legs out from under him. ”Wah?!” he cried out, hands waving about to seek some sort of hold or balance, both dodging out of the way as he hit the ground with a harsh thud and head hitting the ground. In his daze they tied him to the chair, arms crossed and hands tied to the opposite sides while ankles were treated much the same, one leg looped over the other so the opposing ankle sat tied uncomfortable to the other leg. He’d certainly have fun wiggling for the next while as they got down to business.

    Hurried steps scuffed against the long rugs of the hallways as they made mad dashes in the hopes of avoiding people. So far only one door opened in their wake and the duet already vanished around a corner before they heard the confused voice call out, ”What’s goin’ on?” He’d sounded more curious, likely thinking colleagues were on the move, but not enough to give chase after they called out in unison, “Bathroom!” They hadn’t honestly expected it to work, but they wouldn’t look a gift horse in the mouth either.

    Shortly after tying down the fellow near the kitchen they’d received information from the other group, Atma passing on from some mages they’d encountered and questioned that the family were currently held hostage in a separate room from their husband/father – who was being kept in his office – in the living room. ”Be careful, their guards will be stronger than the rabble wandering the streets and some of those guarding the outside of the estate,” she cautioned, voice stern, ”and don’t forget to take care with your actions: they do have hostages after all. If anything happens to his family then it’ll bring shame upon the musketeers, Fiore mages, and failure regardless if we save Sir Townsend.”

    ”Of course,” Portha nodded despite it being only an audial lacrima, tone serious, ”We’ll save everyone damn it.”

    ”And…don’t forget to come out of it alive as well. I trust you, but I don’t trust them.” Mao didn’t see an ounce of annoyance, shame, or exasperation flicker in Portha’s face at the remark. She could probably name three people who might’ve scoffed at such a statement, taking it as an insult rather than the concern it was meant to be. Regardless of how strong these musketeers were, they could still fall at any moment.

    The red head’s long ponytail whipped through the air as she immediately turned to Mao, expression serious before a smile broke through and transformed it into one of determination, ”Let’s go!”

    ”Right!”

    Unlike last time they measured their steps more carefully, eager to avoid trouble this time rather than trick it with a drive by. They stuck to whispering back and forth, unsure of what the setup inside the room might be. Sure they knew who was in there, but not where – placement could be detrimental to everything and they had to fully utilize their element of surprise this time. Mao was a little pushy on this matter, silencing Portha’s protests with a reminder of the illusion incident and how some things could’ve been avoided even if they had been helpful. She begrudgingly acquiesced, grumbling a little unintelligibly under her breath.

    ”-it won’t completely steal visibility, but between the surprise and effects it’ll help with cover so you can try to secure the hostages and I can provide aid.”

    ”I’ve actually got a smokescreen shot too, so if we combine them the guards will be completely blind,” Portha quickly interjected, ”I’ll wait a second before firing it off so we can get an idea of where they are, but afterward things’ll get hard for everyone to see. At least we’ll have the advantage though with the initial activation of your spell.”

    The partners slowed their slightly quickened pace, the slight adrenaline rush pushing them forward even as they had to slow down. They’d neared the door to the living room, the thing looming almost ominously as the unknown challenge on the other side attempted to unnerve them. But they didn’t have time for that, tiptoeing quietly as Portha pulled the hood back over her head to obscure her identity. Earlier they’d stolen the cloak off of the counter in the kitchen from the poor sap they’d blindsided, allowing her a few seconds of impersonating one of them before the spell went off. Her eyes asked the silent question, ’Ready?’

    Mao nodded, and Portha opened the door while she stood out of sight.

    Gently and casually the cloaked woman opened the door, garnering the attention of those in the room. With fear the family looked on before the mother slowly realized the woman’s identity, everyone else in the room far slower to grasp whether she was friend or foe. Something rolled into the room from between her legs, the blue orb shining with a remarkable beauty they all recognized as an unnaturally large gemstone. Greed momentarily filled the two guards’ eyes, though one of the women realized the rather obvious trap, trying to call out to her partner, ”Wait-“

    Dark blue mist swarmed the room, obscuring their vision as both shielded their eyes in preparation for the explosion like reactions of the gemstone. They’d been prepared for pain and possibly shrapnel, figuring they didn’t care about small fry such as the family when the hurried footsteps cautioned them. Portha was already upon one of them, more smoke filling the room as she fired off the shot that would ensure nobody could see.

    Mao charged in, failing to notice one of them silently summoned something as she got in an easy pot shot at the tall brunette woman guarding the family. The momentum caused her to tumble away, something she immediately took advantage of to roll away from her attacker in the hopes they couldn’t see her either. Ears pricked as the escaping target accidentally bumped into a chair in her haste, about to zero in on it when something chomped down into her leg. ”Guh…” The teeth hurt as it sunk in, the girl just able to make out fox before it dashed back into the cover of smoke.

    ”Jokes on you: he can use smell and hearing to find you! He doesn’t need his eyes!”

    Spoiler:
    Name: Sapphire: Gentle Breeze
    Rank: D
    Type: Utility
    Duration: 3
    Cooldown: 5
    Description: Creating a baseball-sized orb or an arrow, once the projectile hits something it explodes in an expanding cloud of glittering blue dust/mist that reaches up to 15m. Something of a calming agent to magical energies and biological ones, the power behind attacks is reduced by ½ if they pass through the field. To foes the mist appears as a dark blue, but to allies it appears as a light, pale sky blue hardly hindering their vision.
    Strengths:

    • Doesn’t affect allies due to her affinity towards the person
    • Weakens foes’ attacks/spells
    • Mildly reduces enemy visibility, the glittering/glowing might distract a little

    Weaknesses:

    • Deals no damage
    • Can be blown away
    • Doesn’t affect heat-based magic: they just plow right through
    • Doesn’t affect celestial/holy magic

    An unfortunate circumstance, the spell not particularly affecting summons in most regards, though animal senses also posed a problem. Listening hard she managed to sweep it aside with a powerful slap of her tail, the thing yipping as it collided with unseen furniture, ’Hopefully this Sir Townsend can forgive a bit of property damage.’ It became a more prominent thought as a chair slammed down at her, knocking the woman to the floor in a temporary stun. Vaguely she heard someone call out what sounded like her name, but the woman’s louder war cry blocked it out. Halfway through the call turned into a scream, and something clattered harshly to the ground next to Mao as she realized the woman had been gearing up to beat her to death with the chair.

    The momentarily downed mage had been granted a second chance thanks to her partner, Portha sparing a shot before returning to her scuffle with the other mage, though not without a small cost herself as the blond woman landed a solid punch before the resumed wrestling match. ’I need to be careful,’ she thought with a pant, wincing as her head stung from the hit, ’I can’t hold them back like this.’ As the woman got to her feet, she tried to fire a spell at Mao as she charged, the tail-clad mage letting her already hurt shoulder take the brunt of the hit. It was pleasing to see the shock on the woman’s face however as the water spell lacked a certain oomph it normally held.

    ”Your little ‘pet’ might be unaffected,” she muttered loud enough for the woman to hear, ”but you’re fully susceptible.” The charge allowed Mao to slam into the woman, effectively knocking the breath out of her. She hadn’t planned on taking the woman out with the vase behind her, the woman’s head thoroughly plowing through the thing as they tumbled to the floor and also destroyed some of the legs on the small table. As the little fox made a leap for Mao however, with its master unconscious the thing vanished just before it could sink those obnoxious fangs into her arm.

    Finally the smoke was starting to clear, though the blue haze remained completely intact. One down, one to go, Mao turned to help her comrade only to find she went completely unneeded…like usual. ’These Musketeers are something else,’ she thought with a hint of awe as the red-head dusted herself off. She flashed Mao a grin before moving to untie the family, starting with the missus of the household, inspiring the Sabertooth mage to help the children as she canceled the spell.

    ”I hope they weren’t too rough with ya, Lady Townsend.”

    ”Not too rough blessedly,” she assured them, though sighed in relief all the same now that she was free, ”they were starting to become a little antsy though, and they almost separated me from my children! I had to beg to stay with them, as much as I also wanted to stay with my husband.” Rubbing her wrists, the woman barely held back a whimper as she continued to stay strong in front of her children. It impressed Mao as she studied the woman, sure that she’d been doing so since the beginning all for their sake. ’The strength of a parent’s love?’ she questioned.

    ”I’m glad you guys are all right, but I need you to carefully leave the residence,” Portha started ushering them towards the door and then checked to make sure the coast was clear. Assured that no one was traipsing down the hall towards them at that moment, she turned back, ”We’ll escort you part of the way, but head towards the servants’ house. By now Atha and Atma should’ve been able to take it back from the intruders and the freed staff will be hiding there. Don’t worry about your husband: leave everything to us!” What could be called a cocky smile held too much strength for it to be all bluster, the action a little entrancing even as the group left the room and Mao brought up the rearguard.
