The holy mage felt a cold presence as she seemingly floated on air. The atmosphere was bright and felt very bubbly. It may have been cold but it didn't match the really light presence that the environment surrounding the girl gave out. After floating around for a little bit, she heard a thunderous crack. It shocked the girl as it was the loudest thing in this space and it reverberated within the area, hearing it echo as if Hikari was in a large corridor. She held her head in her hands as the environment started cracking, each crack letting out a stream of water. The wooden background was being broken and water was flooding in. Hikari was no longer floating, and she felt panic as the water continually rose. She was powerless to stop it, she couldn't use her magic and she couldn't move. She was useless. With one final crack from the apparent ceiling to this horrible scene, the water flood in, causing the mage to gasp underwater as her final breath left her body.
Jolting up from her slumber, Hikari took a moment, letting out each shuddering breath one after another. She was badly shaken up, and it was clear. The girl has had minimal sleep and eaten very little to avoid becoming sea sick. She wasn't sure if she was going to be able to prevent the latter from happening at this point too. Rubbing her eyes, she looked at the chart on the navigation system and saw that the ship was still a long way away from the island. Hikari sighed as she looked at this aquatic torture device surrounding her and decided that she needed some air. Stumbling after getting up for a second, the girl shakily made her way to the door. She opened it, only to be greeted with intense sunlight, causing a temporary squint as her eyes adjusted to the harsh light. She sighed as she walked over to the railing of the boat. Leaning against the side, the girl's pink locks flew in the wind as she watched as the boat traveled across the blue ocean. It wasn't bad from here. It almost felt like she was off the boat entirely, which honestly wouldn't be a bad thing in this case.
Sighing for the umpteenth time today, the girl decided that she should eat. After all, they were holding a girl hostage so, there definitely was going to be some fighting today. It's just a matter of when. When she walked around the boat earlier, she saw a mess hall and had saw a door that probably lead to the kitchen there. She made her way over to the mess hall and headed over to the open double door-ed room. She peeked her head in and saw that there was a kitchen. Master had said that the food had been restocked for this trip. So, when she scavenged the area for potential ingredients, she saw a surplus of high quality ingredients. The girl was shocked as she stepped back. She had never seen more expensive ingredients. Hikari was very tempted to make so many things with these ingredients and if she got in trouble, then preserve them for her master to try the food but despite every bone in her body, decided against it. She had to think about what kind of meal she needed to eat first. She need to make sure her body was properly fueled for battles ahead. With the wide array of ingredients, the safest option was a hearty stew. The girl made quick work of preparing the ingredients and placing them in the pot, with chicken broth. She set the burner of the stove on high and decided to sit in the mess hall while she waited. While walking, she heard the sound of metal hit the deck.
Deciding to be careful, she had prepared herself. She opened her palm, with glowed with a holy aura before dulling. She was ready for this. Hikari didn't want to beat around the bush and hide, so the minute she got the chance, she kicked the door to the main deck open. She was greeted by seeing 5 men, presumably pirates. They were very burly men and Hikari was a little bit intimidated. She scowled slightly when they attempted cat-calling her, asking her who else was on the ship, and very crude things. She smiled at them, menacingly, as she snapped her fingers with a ball of light appearing around her. The pirates sensed the magic and all charged at her. All brute? You heathens should learn how to fight
. When they all leaped to get onto her, she disappeared in a flash of light. As the pirates ended up colliding into her, she reappeared in a flash above them, More importantly, how to properly approach a lady of my standing.
She points downwards and five orbs of light materialize, launching themselves at blinding speeds at the enemy. They collided with the pirates as the other ball of light beside Hikari fired multiple orbs at the enemies hit. She smirked as she gracefully landed away from them. They were injured but were still eager to fight. As they charged once again, Hikari rolled her eyes at them. The holy mage held out her hand and a rapier materialized itself within her hand. She parried the first pirate's hit by hitting him with the hilt in the fist as he threw a straight punch. You really need to work on your form. It's quite sloppy.
Smiling, the pink haired girl twirls with the sword fading into light and a shield materializing on her fore arm, blocking a punch from another pirate. The pirate winced as the punch made contact and Hikari kissed her teeth, similar to a mother calling out her son on poor table manners. This is fun and all, but I really have somewhere to be.
She needed to get rid of these brutes soon so she intended to get rid of them now.
The girl sighed as she placed her hand forward and a rather large magical circle appeared. After a couple of seconds, she stretched her hand and a flock of birds appeared. The birds exploded upon making contact with the enemy. She smiled as some jumped off the boat to avoid the onslaught of birds. There was one pirate who managed to stand his ground but this one wasn't doing so hot as he was panting and was clearly struggling to stand. Hikari sighed as she summoned a lance and leaped at the pirate, twirling whilst in the air. When she reached him, she ended up piercing through his arm, missing her mark only slightly. Waving goodbye at the pirate as he stumbled to the railing, she kicked him off the ship when he reached the edge of the boat. She peeked over the edge as she saw the pirates, far behind the ship as it hadn't stopped once during that entire fight. She got rid of the hooks that enabled the pirates to scale the side of the ship. Good riddance. Now, I wonder if my stew is done.
The girl happily walked her way over to the kitchen, eager to eat after a draining fight after dealing with people like that. Still time left until she gets to the island after all.Words:2075/2500
