OOC: Sorry for the late posting, and also I’m a bit confused. Are we fighting the basilisks or nah?
Eiji watched the headmaster and the guild’s ace do their thing. He heard Famine say, “We are gonna move, with or without our stealth, See that no one stops Sol and I." Eiji looked at her, and responded, “all right”. Eiji felt as if this whole thing was sort of like being in a boyband, two lead vocalists doing all the vocal work, whilst the remaining members doing the backup vocals - no light for them to shine. When they go outside, it’s only these two guys that get recognized, and not the backup vocals. Yeah, he felt like that. But, he isn't complaining though. Those two really seemed to know what they were doing. In this scenario, Eiji on the other hand, didn't really know what he’s doing, which is pretty rare, and because of this, made him just go with the flow. Besides, he had no choice but to go with the flow, like a surfer going against the wave, there’s always the chance of drowning, in this case, Eiji could literally die.
He watched Famine set her magic spell. "See that they get silenced along with the others!” Eiji looked at her again, and responded, “all right” again, this time, actually smiling. His time to shine. But there was a big problem though, his magic skills weren’t up to par, and if he was to fight an entire crew, he would be screwed. But, he had faith. Faith, because Feitian would accompany him. Feitian is, after all, a stronger mage than him, and in times of peril, you could always rely on a stronger member. Regardless of being in a dark guild, Eiji had faith that these people weren’t so bad and had some sort of fundamental understanding of what loyalty is, and is willing to help their friends. After all, isn’t this good? Killing people is always a dark mage’s wet dream.
This level of loyalty was question after this happened. “Sorry I’ll eat you guys later“ He heard the ace say. Eiji shuddered, but he somehow felt like the ace was joking or something. The cannibalistic behaviour didn’t bother Eiji too much, he had always felt like people could always do what they wanted to do, but just how freely the ace said to him. Somehow, this thought entertained Eiji as well, and had a lot to say about liberation with this sentence alone. He was reminded how this world was a jungle, and someday, Eiji would die because stronger people liked picking on the weak. That’s how the world works. Somehow, Eiji felt motivated to work harder, and be in the same position as the ace. This thought entertained Eiji.
Eiji’s thoughts were interrupted when he heard someone say, “You handle any that are trying to run away. The deck is the best I would think. I’ll follow the mistress and clear the rest of these cabins and hallways. Should someone get by me you should be able to handle them.” Eiji looked around to see that this belonged to Feitan. Eiji’s heart sank, Feitan was supposed to be the person that would support him if he was ever in trouble. He really wanted to respond back to Feitan, “BUT YOU KNOW, I am only a D-rank. There’s no what that I can stop all these people with how I am now. You are truly naive and a fool to put this much faith to a weakling like me”, but all that was said out of his mouth was “All right”. He kept saying “all right” because he didn’t really know how to respond. Yet, regardless of him worrying, his heart was beating faster and faster. Excitement grew on him like a forest catching on fire, and soon enough all of his worries went away, masked by his excitement.
Eiji went to the docks, and everyone was scrambling away. It was, as he had guessed, like gaseous particles running away. This was what true despair looked like. And with true despair came with true freedom. Eiji chuckled to himself, and closed his eyes, took a deep breath to calm himself. He looked around to see where these people were the most abundant, which he noticed was on the right of him. He focused deep within himself, opening up his right palm, setting up to cast the spell, and said “Fire”, a magic circle appears, and a small violet ball appeared. He threw it at that location, slowing down the group. As they all slowed down, Eiji approached the group and engaged in hand-to-hand combat, just because he felt like these people didn’t really deserve to experience his magical spells, but also because he knew that his spells wouldn’t do much in terms of spells.
Thud. Thud. The sound of his fists being in contact with their skulls. A kick to their groins. One by one, they fell, moaning, as Eiji laughed. “Praise the gods that be!” He said out loud. He looked at the other people that were running away, running after them, wanting to do the same as he did with the cohort. He felt alive. The most alive he had ever been. Perhaps, this will teach them a lesson to "balls up" and actually fight Eiji back, for if total freedom was achieved, then for all they knew, they would have to fight continuously for the rest of their life.
Yet the thought of him being all alone on the deck with no one to help had yet to cross his mind. All worries dissipated. This had made Eiji a fool. If only Eiji could see the gods, he would see them shaking their heads from left to right, right to left, screaming “You fool!” then Eiji might’ve been more self-aware. But for now, leave him be - he was having the time of his life.
