Adalinda wiped the back of her mouth as she takes a deep breath, nodding to Amalie’s statement of Slayers having heightened senses. “Yeah. I can smell maybe better than a dog. Can hear better too.”
She points to her ears as she looks over to Kyran again. She got he was trying to be slightly formal or whatever with her, but she didn’t need him to be. Especially not with her. “I’ll beat you to a pulp if the plants don’t eat you first after we’re done here.”
She chuckles at him before he questioned her and irritated her a bit with it. When Amalie begun to speak up again after Adalinda’s initial comment of their tasks at hand, she paused and looked back to the other woman. She listened to the other woman as she spoke, smirking slightly as she nodded to her. “Yes. Our removing the creatures will be helpful to the other groups, but our success also determines the other teams success, technically.”
Ada points out. A smirk was on her lips as she pointed to her. “We fail to thin the ranks, they have a high chance to fail to get a sample or whatever. I dunno.”
She waited for Amalie to get done with her spiel before she snorts. “I’ll make sure we last that long.”
She tells her with a small nod.
Before she continued on, the dragon slayer looked back to her long time guild mate as he had started flashing between the various demons within him. Her eyes glaring at him through slits for a moment. She wanted to make sure he wasn’t losing his mind or whatever. She rolls her eyes at Kyran once he was back to normal and commented to Amalie. “Don’t make me get in contact with your girlfriend.”
Ada snorts at him. She gives him a ‘I’m sorry’ glance when he mentioned losing someone close to him recently, and felt she had a pretty good guess of what it was. She shakes her head and went on forward. Like hell was it not important though. She was grumbling things to herself about not liking having to deal with these ‘stupid plant creatures’ and about how they just had
to come to life. With all her grumblings, she didn’t notice Kyran had gone off on his own at first. She blinked and looked around them. “I swear… if he ditched for home… I’m going to kick his ass to oblivion and drown him under the waters of Tolgalen!”
She hissed aloud, not caring about Amalie hearing her threat.
She looked over as she sensed the huge monsters not too far, and takes a deep breath. “Yo ho and a bottle of rum.”
She mumbles as she quickly lifts the refilling horned flask, that Kyran had gotten her once upon a time, and drank from it. A grin was on her face as she felt rejuvenated from simply sipping the contents. If one had a strong nose, they’d smell the alcohol within the horn. It was one of the stronger alcohols her mate created for her to have. Instead of hindering her, the alcohol was helping her instead, and it showed as she focused on the creatures in front of her. “Hey Tam…”
The black haired slayer smirks as she looks over to her purple companion. Tamaria raises an eyebrow to Ada, and crosses her arms. “Yes…?” “Have any Iron for me in that bag of yours?”
She questions before the exceed reached into her bag and chucked a bar of iron at her. “Eat up.” “With pleasure…”
The girl lifts the bar to her mouth and took a rather huge bite out of the metal, leaving a chunk missing. Then, she just stuck it in her mouth, holding it very much like a cigar as she cracks her knuckles. It was time to stop slacking and get to work. She felt her mana just slightly come back, as well as her necklace pull some from some iron that was apparently nearby.
Amalie went on ahead of her and had thrown out some fire once again at both of the creatures they had to go after. As she had done so though, she apparently had taken care of a couple of the creatures that were in the swampy area, falling prey rather easily to her fires once more. She wasn’t going to stop her from doing that. If anything, that helped her, or more Tammy. Let them both know that fire was the best thing for there, and it only made Tammy happy as she was the one with the sword that used fire. This would be easier on her. She let Amalie go after the giant trees, going to go and help her while staying out of the way of her fire and shards, till she flew herself up. Adalinda wasn’t exactly expecting that, but she was impressed none the less that her magic allowed her to fly. Her going between two of the creatures made Adalinda feel a bit worried for a moment. “Ama-”
She was cut off as she created two whips, in which Ada just threw her arms up. “Guess you got this.”
She chuckles quietly. Tamaria came up from behind Ada and grabbed her. This was Adalinda’s way of flight out of her dragon form.“Throw me at one of them!”
She chuckles to the purple cat. Tamaria lets up a groan, but does as her crazy dragon slayer asked of her. She threw her at one of the giant tree demon things, and Adalinda landed on it’s shoulder. “Hi there, bud!”
She chuckles as she slams her hands into its shoulder. “I think you may have some iron snakes in you, best watch out.”
Usually these six meter long iron snakes would wrap around their enemies, but in this case, she figured they could simply snap the wood that are within the tree demons. And if that would work… best go to the bottom. To their legs. She chuckles as she begins to climb over the beast like it was nothing. Shaking her arms, she felt the strength come to her hands. As her snakes traveled down to the legs, Adalinda was going over the back of the tree demon, trying to distract it from the snakes within it. She managed to scramble herself onto its head, and snickers to herself as she puts her hands on her hips. So far, this thing was being rather slow for her. It wasn’t too much fun to mess around with. “Ey! Wake up sleepy head!”
She cries out as she raised her hand up and balled it into a fist. She then brought it down and smashed it into his head rather hard, chuckling to herself as she felt it rumble in pain. Or was it hunger? She wasn’t going to find out as she quickly moved once more.
As she was messing around with her tree demon, she felt the ground shake as Amalie had taken down the other two demons. “Woo! Awesome! Keep it up, Amalie!”
She couldn’t help but call out to her with a grin on her face. As she was cheering her though, the slayer had gotten smacked from behind by another tree demon. The smack was enough to make her face plant on the demon's head, and start to slide down a bit. Ada had managed to grab hold of some the hanging moss off of its face and starts to grin. She lets out a rather excited howl as she kicked her legs, starting to swing as she hung on the moss. Maybe she could do some damage like this. She felt her snakes getting closer to the legs, and snickers as she kicks her legs more. The demons weren’t able to keep up with her as she was swinging too much. Actually, with how she was swinging, the second demon managed to swing its arm at the face of the one she was on. Adalinda let out a rather excited laugh as she jumped off of it to scale the arm of the second one. She was letting out an excited cackle as she ran up the arm rather happily. The first tree demon was trying to step forward towards the second, but as it set its foot down, it begun to shake. A rather devilish grin was on Ada’s face. She managed to snap the insides of the legs just right by having her iron snakes coil tightly together around the joints, like she planned. With the first one shaking and trying to balance itself, the second was trying to walk away to avoid being hit. “I~ don’t think so~!”
Ada sung out. It wasn’t too great of singing, but she also didn’t care. She had ran towards the other side and grabs hold of a moss on its head. She jumps off of the side of its head before she went in to punch the side of its face. The punch managed to direct the tree demon the other way.
Despite her moaning and groaning of hating plants, Adalinda was enjoying being able to beat these things up and killing them. These plants were trying to harm, they had no feelings, well maybe hunger… but not feelings of compassion or anything good. She could use that for why she didn’t care about hurting these ‘plants’ if someone was going to complain to her about destroying them. Not including that they were in an infected area. The tree demons were tumbling down together as Adalinda’s snakes were making their way up the body once again to start severing more joints on the inside. Ada had let up a groan as she had gotten herself caught in a tangle of leaves as the two fell to the forests floor. She holds her head and takes a deep breath. “Ouch…”
She mumbles as she twists her body, punching the tree to get the bark away from her foot. It didn’t take her long to get her foot free, kicking herself from the tree and slowly getting to her feet. With one of the plants unable to walk properly, as well as them both laying on the ground, Adalinda chuckles. “Now it should be easier to work with you guys.”
She cracks her knuckles as she runs towards the second tree demon that was on its back. She grabbed some moss that hung by its head, and quickly jumps up onto its chest before she launches herself to the other side, twisting the head rather violently to the other side. She did struggle a bit with yanking the head, but she managed to get it, that’s all she cared about.
That second tree demon now… The snakes were making their way up its body, going to the leg joints at the hip, snapping those, and going up to the arms from there. She runs over to the other one, and grab some more hanging moss again. “While it was fun to swing on you like some jungle person, time for you to go bye bye.”
She growls as she yanks it the other direction. Two limp tree demons, and Adalinda was shivering as she honestly wasn’t taking a liking to having touched them now that they were defeated. “Hate plants…”
She mumbles to herself as She noticed Kyran had taken down one of his own with his demon dog. “Next ones of these tree things, lets all yank them to the ground or something… Get ourselves a massive exploding lacrima… bah…”
She growls as she looks over to where Kyran had gone, making her way over to there on foot.
While Adalinda had been fighting the tree demons, Tammy had zipped off to fight some of the vine chargers. As she got over to them, Kyran was working on his own charger, and Tammy takes out the blade to Ihai Agneya Talizar
. The exceed takes a deep breath as she closes her eyes for a moment. She quite liked using the sword, and it could come in handy when in flight. Like right now. Tamaria holds the sword up and quickly charges towards one of the swamp vine things, aiming the blade towards the chest. She slams herself into the chest, and grins as she presses a button on the hilt of the sword, and suddenly it was lit aflame. The vine charger let out a shriek as Tammy flew up and over the vine charger, yanking the sword with her through the bone before flying in a circle around it to attempt to cut it in half diagonally. The charger was trying to heal itself up again, breaking the diagonal she created. The exceed clearly wasn’t happy and quickly threw the sword at its neck, letting the flames burn through the moss and lighting it up more on fire before the head was lopped off by it. “Thank you Ada… I don’t know where I’d be without your beautiful sword.”
The cat says as she starts to fly over to a small portion of the forestry area not too far from the swamp that seemed like it was just a hill. She could have sworn there was another of those ones… she landed on the ground, tapping her chin while still holding Talizar. The fire on the blade out temporarily. As she was thinking, something was starting to come up from behind her, and Ada was coming from her left. Adalinda spotted the vine creature coming up on Tammy, and quickly sprints. “Tammy!”
She shouts as she uses a rock to launch herself after her companion, wrapping her arms around her as she rolled into a ball, her back taking a hit from the claws of the creature before she kicked her foot out and knocked it away. Ada still had her scales on, so this was nothing to her, or at least it was less damaging to her… Slowly, she uncurled from her companion, and smiles. “You good?” “Yeah.” “Go kick its ass.”
She chuckles as Tammy snickers and turns the fire on the blade, right back on before she uses her wings to throw herself right at the charger again.
The dragon slayer stands up as she watches Tammy shove the sword into her current enemies chest, and makes a motion like she was wiping way an imaginary tear away. “Oh, she grows up so fast.”
She chuckles to herself. ‘Yeah, you’re just happy she’s the one dealing with the thing, not you.’
Veles snorts at her. Ada can’t help but snort as well. She wasn’t denying that at all. She was about to take a step when suddenly the ground began to shake again. She stops and looks to Tammy, who just burnt the second vine charger to a crisp with the blade after being hit by one of its claws. Of course Tammy wasn’t too happy her outfit was ruined… she liked her little uniform she wore… She’d have to deal though… this wasn’t over yet. Tammy didn’t feel the ground shaking since she was fluttering in the air, but she looked over to Ada as she seemed to be vibrating, and quickly flew up a bit to see what was around them. She didn’t see anything? Ada suddenly let out a rather girly shriek as the ground moved under her feet. The little hill that Tammy had been on, wasn’t a hill. It was another tree demon that apparently had been sleeping.
Adalinda was about to jump off when she stepped just right on a spot and her foot sunk into the wood of the creature, making her fall flat on her face. Not so graceful of her as she was about to kick her foot out, the ground shifted from horizontal, to vertical, and she was now dangling at an awkward angle. Her foot was stuck in the arm of the creature. “Just my luck!”
She cries out as the thing was slowly getting to its full fifty meter height. She wanted to kick herself out of the creature, but she didn’t think the fall would be too great. She turned slightly, and noticed that a second hill was moving to do the same now. “Fuuuuuuck man!”
She shouts in a rather annoyed voice. Tammy comes flying up to Ada, and grabs her arms, attempting to yank her out of the tree demon, but Ada shakes her head. “Nope! My foot is twisted in there and stuck pretty good… Thought third time's the charm, not second?!”
She hisses. She tried to spy Amalie and Kyran from where she was at now. “Hey! You two! Do me a huge favor and make sure this freaking tree doesn't crush me, m’kay?”
She was literally hanging upside down from the arm of this tree demon, feeling the blood rush to her head. ‘Some leader you are… getting stuck and all…’
Veles chastised her. Ada hisses as she glances towards the tree that didn’t notice her on him.
