The only thing she had left that could bring any sort of joy, was her friends and family.
... But of course life had a way of kicking someone while they're down.
It began that morning with cooking, an activity she had to do a lot with the hungry mouths currently all living in her house. Shizuka, Lucius, Wolfgang. They could not feed themselves, either being too young or disabled somehow, and therefore the elf normally cooked for them.
The radio had been on, more so for the weather more than anything. It was always good to know the weather after all, especially if she was going to end up going on a job somehow. Dressing appropriately could make or break an entire quest. But while double tasking, Astrid had almost missed the sudden and terrifying news that would shake her and Lucius to their very cores.
She could have sworn she heard the man over the crackling speakers right. But the more she tried to recall what he said, the harder she found to listen. A slaughter, he said? Peace Village was...
The rhythmic sound of her chopping came to a halt, and violet eyes stared off at the wall in front of her, suddenly seeming numb to all of her surroundings.
Among the name of casualties, one stuck out the most.
Eustis Foss. Her grandfather.
One thing lead to another, and the slayer had seemed to blank out, even more so than usual. She did not even finish making the breakfast for her house residents. Even if she wanted to, right now, she had too much going on in her mind to concentrate on finishing. Instead, she dropped everything and exited the house in a blast of silver light.
They could never leave her alone, could they? It was as if traumatizing her back when she was first just starting this new life wasn't enough. It's like they had to take everything from her, it's like she had to take everything from her.
The elf had given her too many chances, and now she was paying for it. She should have just killed her back in that alleyway, back when she had the chance. Both her and that blasted guild would pay.
They would pay for crossing her.
Soon finding herself at Rose Garden the wizard saint approached the outside of the Silver Moon Inn casually, dressed in her enchanted cloak so she would not bring too much attention to herself despite underneath holding so much anguish and rage that the people around her couldn't help but at least glance in her direction. If they did, burning crimson eyes would simply glare in their direction from under the hood, causing them to become so frightened they would turn right around and walk the other way. It was a busy day at the in, from at least what she could see. It looked to be filled to the brim with people and the streets were littered, most likely due to the holiday season. Normally? Astrid would never dream of doing such a thing, otherwise being a pacifist and all. Even then, there were too many people around here, and therefore she had a much higher rate for casualties. But with so much rage, she was blinded, and did not care for them. Black Rose needed to pay. That was all. Nothing else mattered at this very moment.
Raising a slim arm up a silver circle formed around the outside of her hand before a beam of light blasted from it straight through the hall of the inn in a clean cut. The structure shook and crumbled under the power of such a mighty blast, causing the surrounding people who were not hit to begin running away in case another attack happened. Which they did. Astrid continued to fire at the inn, each one causing a massive, burning hole. By now Rose Garden, which had once been bustling with happy civilians, was suddenly eerie and quiet, nothing but the sound of crumbling structure and distant screams to fill it. At least, until the enraged slayer finally spoke.
"YOU COWARDS!" she yelled darkly, firing yet again another laser into the building. By now her hood had fallen off, allowing for her angered features to become visible. "YOU'LL ALL PAY FOR WHAT YOU HAVE DONE!"
WC: Let's finally get this war started, yo!
