The major looked on horrified as the young girl dove right into the bursting ice creatures, and was just as impressed as she seemed to anticipate the next one bursting up from underneath where she had been. Tanaka was still alarmed at how things were starting out, drawing out his sword. “What're you doing?!”
Arcadia growled back over her shoulder, ”You brought me out here to use this guy's own magic against him, right? Well... that's what I'm doing. Just hang tight.”
Her dress was scuffed, and she was looking some worse for the wear. Arcadia felt ready for anything this monster could throw at her. Ahead she finally saw the wizard who'd fed her so nicely so far. Seeing a pair of mages step up alongside the ice make assassin, she recast her refraction spell, pushing her displaced image a few meters to her left.
Ellie and the rest of the Rune Knights were slowly gaining the upper hand against the underling mages that had been sent to distract them. Arcadia figured, she just had to hold out long enough for them to come back. Truthfully though, for once she was feeling like she had a shot to end this before Ellie and the others were finished mopping up across the plaza.
The wolf charged ahead first, falling for the same trick the ice make wizard did. It pounced right on Arcadia's refracted image, leaving it open to three icy darts, she had grown from her fingers and whipped away as she sped by. Each one struck deep and true, dropping the take over mage to the ground back in his normal human form.
The second underling mage blasted a freezing ray from a ring. The young slayer had been laying off her own ice magic much as possible, not wishing to give her adversaries reason to stop feeding her their ice magic. This time she threw in a little play acting to hide that she was eating the ice ray. Arcadia cried out, and rolled back on the ground. Having consumed the magic of the ray, she pretended to be slow in getting up in hopes of inviting a couple more blasts.
The underling mage obliged with a wide-angle cold blast, and the ice make assassin unleashed an ice panther to finish off the young girl who had dared rush at him. Arcadia consumed the wide-angle cold blast, and rose to meet the panther. The two assassins' delight in impending victory was instantly turned to dread.
As the panther's icy body crumbled from being consumed, an aura of raging, freezing mist erupted all around Arcadia. Her deep green eyes frosted over into the palest, purest blue, as did her long pale blonde locks. The girl's little canines growing more prominent with the predatory grin that grew across the slayer's face. Dragon Force achieved.
