"I control the magic. The magic doesn't control me. Got it." Leona recited to Sol before he gave the exact number of enemies that they would have to deal with. According to Sol, there were four children and two adults heading their way. Leona's stomach turned when she heard that children were among the enemies.
The blonde was already regarded with a mixture of respect and fear. She did not want to descend into infamy by beating up children who just wanted candy, so she would really have to pull her punches with them. A simple Wind Blast should be enough to knock them out without doing too much harm. As for the adult enemy, she could use a greater degree of force as long as she did not kill him. Leona only wanted to escort the candy to its destination, not kill anyone.
Leona listened as Sol suggested that they split the enemies between them. Leona would deal with two children and one adult while her "husband" dealt with the other two children and the other adult. The blonde did not have any better ideas, so she would go with Sol's suggestion.
"OK. I'll handle the other enemies." Leona voiced her agreement with the plan. She then noticed that the children running towards them paid no heed to the danger posed by two powerful mages from two of the more prominent Independent guilds of Earthland. It was almost like they were possessed... that meant that Leona would have to be a lot more careful in dealing with them.
The children rushed towards her with their arms outstretched and their faces focused on the candy. Leona did not like what she was about to do, but she could not let them get the candy. The entire shipment had to be intact for the job to be considered a success. The blonde clenched her teeth and pushed out with a magic-infused palm, knocking the children down with a concussive blast. They went unconscious immediately.
Leona ran over to them and leaned down to make sure that they were OK. They still had a pulse... they were just unconscious. The relieved blonde picked them up and moved them out of the way, setting them off to the side at the front doorstep of someone's home. It was a raised stone doorstep with iron railings, so they were in no danger of being hurt unless they were deliberately targeted by an attack. Leona rushed back to Sol's side just in time to confront the love hater.
The love hater was a brown-haired man wearing a white t-shirt with a brown vest and blue jeans with tan work boots. In his hands were a pair of knives shaped like the halves of a broken heart. That was an interesting choice of weapon, but it would still not be enough to defeat the Silver Wolf mage. After fighting the Crimson Sashes time and time again, knives were not enough to frighten her anymore.
"I didn't expect YOU to be escorting the candy, but that doesn't matter! I'll deal with you and then destroy that shipment!" He said to Leona. The blonde frowned. It had not even been fifteen seconds and she already disliked the guy. However, just because she disliked the guy did not mean that she had license to kill him.
"You can try." Leona replied to him. The Venom God Slayer magic from Sol was calling to her, begging her to use it. It underestimated Leona's resolve... she was in control of the magic and not the other way around. With that in mind, Leona had the perfect answer to this particular problem.
He flung the knives at Leona, who deflected one with her left Argent Glove and was grazed across the right forearm where the glove did not cover by the other knife. She clenched her teeth and looked at the smirking man. He had just made a big mistake.
Leona's hand glowed black as she faced the man, who was now realizing the depth of his mistake. She simply snapped a finger and three tendrils of black venom lanced out from her body and grabbed the man, immobilizing him and dealing a bit of poison damage. It was not in a high enough dosage to be lethal, but he would definitely be sick for awhile. Leona rushed over to the immobilized man and used Hurricane Punch, hitting him with twelve rapid punches that left him dizzy and his head bobbing from side to side as the tendrils held him.
After that Leona simply used two normal punches to the face to finish knocking him out. The blonde worried that she might have gone overboard, but a quick check showed that the love hater still had a pulse. She eased him to the ground and let him lie on his back, then turned to Sol.
"We'd better get going, Sol." Leona suggested to her partner.

- Because the enemy is still attached to the tendrils they are still being harmed and the poison still stacks
