The person coming after Rina was a girl with a ponytail. She had a tank top that contained the mark of the Flame's Heart. Along with her tank top, she wore shorts that seemed like they were easy to move in. She seemed to have no weapons but Rina could sense a strong magic within the girl. Rina was ready to fight and got in her combat form with the staff. The girl ran at Rina as though she was going to punch her so Rina lifted her staff up as she was about to parry her attack, but then to her surprise, the girl blasted out a fist of fire. It burned through Rina's shirt and she screamed in pain as 2 more hit her in the side. Rina clasped onto to it and groaned in pain. She lifted her hand from the wound and saw blood coming out of it. She felt a little light headed but that wasn't going to stop her from defeating this gang. She was determined to defend the homeless and she wasn't going to back down from the challenge. She ground her teeth and got prepared for the next dose of attacks from the girl called Jane.
The girl's gang members cheered for her and said, "Go, Jane, destroy that loser people call a guild member." As Rina looked to her left she saw the girl and felt the magic power within her subtle down. Rina realized this was her chance and charged at the female. She hit once but missed as the girl dodged it but then hit her on the side of her stomach. The girl grabbed onto the wound and said: "You'll pay for that, just you wait." As the girl was talking Rina went up to her and jabbed her with the top of the staff. The girl got knocked into the wall and Rina then hit the girl in the head with her staff. She drooped down onto the ground, stunned. She was dazed and Rina decided that she had to completely knock her out before she got back up and attacked her later. She didn't want to hurt the defenseless person but she had to defend the homeless people. As she looked down she jabbed the girl in the stomach once more and she became limp. Rina checked the pulse and saw that she still had one. She made a breath of relief and yelled out to the other gang members and said "So, who wants to go next. Your friend isn't dead but she'll be locked up like the rest of y'all. You guys probably don't underestimate me now, do you?
With a clap one of the girls walked forward and laughed at the comment from Rina. She said to her "If you thought Jane was hard just wait until you fight me. My underlings are trash so if they can hurt you that easily then I guess I will win." The other girl known as an underlying looked at her master in fear and said to Rina, "Look what you've done. now you're in real trouble." Rina got prepared by putting her staff away. She then put a hand on her heart and took out a sword. This sword was called the Gladiolus Sword. It was a sword created within Rina that spreads off toxins that poison the enemy. Rina knew this wasn't going to be too easy so she brought out her best weapon. The girl who was talking to Rina was the girl with a bat and the bandana. Her outfit was tied together with the badass leather jacket and the dark blue jeans. Rina wasn't that scared though because this girl didn't seem to smart. Rina didn't assume it though and she was right not to because after a few seconds of the stalemate Rina sensed a huge source of power coming from the female.
As Rina noticed this the female farmed a ball of flames on her hand. Rina was surprised because she could feel the heat from the distance she was standing. Rina was a good length away from the female gang leader and the immense heat she was feeling was insane. Rina watched the movements of the girl as the leader threw the ball in the air and hit it with a bat. Rina dodged it and saw it zoom right past her leaving a dent in the wall near the body of the girl she defeated earlier. Rina yelled out and said "Don't you care about your people? You almost hit your member and you don't even seem to care." The girl then says back to Rina and says "She's just a stray I found a year ago begging for money. I only brought her in because I needed more people in my gang and she was disposable. The leader's underling looked at her with an awful look but then received a slap as the leader turned to see the face of the underling. The underling grasped her face and let a tear roll down her face. She put a hand over her mouth and began to keep quiet.
In anger, Rina then slashed towards the leader of the gang and saw spores in the form of a scythe go towards the leader. Since the leader was distracted she got hit in the gut and cried out in pain. Rina saw the poison spreading through the body of the gang leader as she became weaker. Rina started to sense the decrease in power of the leader which gave Rina a good amount of confidence and she stood triumphantly. Rina thought that the leader wouldn't be able to move from the pain but she was wrong. The leader zoomed towards Rina and bashed her stomach with the bat. Rina was too slow to block it and felt the air knocked out of her. Right as this happened the leader whispered in the ear of Rina and said, "Bitch!" Rina smirked and then slashed at the side of the leader and inflicted poison on the arm with her bat. The leader then dropped it and grasped her hand in pain. Rina then slashed once more at the leader's arm and yelled "Don't," then she hit the leader again and said "You," then with one more slash she yelled more fiercely, "Call me bitch!" The leader yelled in pain and felt herself growing weaker and weaker. The last gang member looked at her master in fear as she passed out. Rina knew the poison wasn't going to kill the leader but that underling didn't.
The underling yelped in terror but she knew she had to go after Rina or else her master would kill her. Rina felt sorry for the little girl who Rina didn't know the name of yet. She decided to put her sword away and formed to peony knuckles on her hands. Rina wanted to play fair since she saw the beating the girl took from her master. The girl ran towards Rina with her fist and Rina dodged it. She had to admit the girl was fast with her fist but she was not fast enough for Rina. Rina was able to predict every move the girl made and blocked or dodged it. Rina felt sorry for the girl but she knew this would go on for too long if Rina didn't stop it. Rina then hit the girl in the gut and Rina saw the breath go out of her the same way the breath got knocked out of Rina when the bat hit her in the gut. Rina said to the girl "Sorry, for that." It was surprising when Rina saw the girl get up. Rina got close to her and tried to get her up but then she began to charge at Rina again. With a lot of grunts and shouts, the girl said to Rina "Master picked me when I was young. I was always picked on when I was little but she saw something in me. She trained me with my fists for 2 years, so now its time to repay her and defeat you. I will not let master down!" Rina then felt a jab to her side as the girl made contact with her. It didn't hurt as much as the other wounds but Rina could still feel the power in the punch. Rina quickly recovered and began dodging and blocking once more. She knew she was going to feel so bad for this but she knew it was time. A tear rolled down Rina's face as she picked up her fist once more and hit the underling in the face. The girl seemed to be knocked out and Rina cried over the girl and said repeatedly "Sorry, sorry, sorry..."
As she looked around she noticed something. She couldn't find the homeless people the girls were fighting from before. Rina searched around but still couldn't find them. She wanted to make sure those people were okay but she couldn't find out until she found them. She then heard a creak coming from the dumpster as 2 people came out of it. They were a guy and a girl between the ages of 15-17. They wore torn up and dirty clothes as though they were wearing the same clothes for months, maybe even years. Rina couldn't figure it out and she wasn't going to ask them anyways so she just decided to simply greet them. Rina waved at them and decided to move closer to them. Just then the boy seemed to get in front of the girl as if he was defending her. Rina then said to them gently "No please don't be scared I'm a good person. I know I just beat up those 3 girls but it was to defend you two. I swear I don't want to hurt you. I just get so mad whenever people hurt the homeless because I was homeless too believe it or not." The boy looked over at the girl and she nodded as if she was accepting Rina.
She then walked over to the two and said to them "Hello." The girl then greeted Rina back and said to her, "Hello my name is Riley and this is my little brother Jack. We were so scared earlier but then you saved us like a superhero. How can we repay you?" Rina then said to them "You don't have to I promise. I know you two don't have the money for it so please just be more careful from now on." They then looked at each other and nodded. The guy then spoke and said to Rina "We are indebted to you so now we have to give you something. The other day we found this item in the alleyway. It was a beautiful flower that seemed to glow as though there was a ghost. My sister didn't want to touch it because she was scared it was haunted so I did it. As I took it out from the wall of the building it became a necklace. My sister wore it every single day admiring its beauty until that gang came and tried to take it. We believe it has mystical powers and we think you can use it." Rina picked it up and inspected it with great disbelief. It was a beautiful flower but Rina didn't know if it was magical. As she put it around her neck she felt some sort of tingle. It was as though the flower was made for her. It then began to grow into the skin of Rina and it invigorated her with a strange sensation. She felt stronger and more powerful but yet somehow still in control of the power. She wasn't sure how useful this will be later on but she was sure she was going to master the powers of this for the sake of the homeless.
