“I’d be happy to lead, if that’s what you’d like,” Kessicia responded without waiting a beat, smiling genuinely at the woman. She could see the slight amusement in the Voidwalker’s eyes, showing that the rather bold offer hadn’t been immediately turned down. It helped that the succubus wasn’t pouring innuendos or insinuations between her words; speaking authentically and honestly with her partner for the day. It seemed Serilda wasn’t the kind that was against a little mixed mingling, which spoke volumes to how comfortable the rest of the evening would certainly go. As she enhanced Serilda’s abilities, she got a flash of the woman’s leg when she reached in and pulled out her small blade, cocking her head to admire the toned limb.
As the group of seven men came running in, their mission to crash the wedding and cause all kinds of chaos, they found themselves blocked by the two women. Their stares were shared between the two of them, though she could feel them linger on her a bit longer due to her magic. She gave them a small wave as the six ruffian friends looked to their leader, the ex-boyfriend. He ordered them to keep them busy while he went on ahead but it was only a moment later that they were all stuck in their spots, their hands reaching for their necks. Kessicia cocked a brow as she glanced over at Serilda, her magic apparently already taking effect. She watched as the Voidwalker darted into the fray, instantly taking down three of the thugs in a single, lightning-flash strike. Three of the others attempted to spray her with their elemental magic but they were quickly swallowed down by the woman before they, too, were flattened onto the ground.
All that was left was the ex-boyfriend and watching his friends apparently filled him with a great rage. He growled and began to pump himself up, preparing a spell to launch at the Rune Knight. But before he could even begin thinking about it, he was backhanded and instantly knocked to the ground. Kessicia was impressed, to say the least. She blinked slowly as she looked between the three parties knocked out before her, easily handled by the Rune Knight before her. She continued to watch as Serilda summoned a local lacrimobile for the Knights to come and address the group, most likely to haul them off to jail. She smirked as she looked up at the white-haired beauty, waggling her eyebrows a bit. “You certainly have~ Talk about impressive,” she said as she jerked her hand and sent her dagger back into her pocket realm. She placed a hand on her hip and took a moment to look Serilda up and down before she chuckled. “Well, I suppose with all the time you’ve saved us, we can go and witness those two proclaim their loves.” She turned and held out her arm, offering to ‘escort’ Serilda into the church, in an almost cheeky fashion.
A few hours later, the wedding banquet was in full swing. The ceremony had been a beautiful and uninterrupted one. The bride and groom had said their vows and the applause that had echoed throughout the church upon their declaration of wedlock seemed to come from the entire city. The large garden area in the center of Rose Garden had been cordoned off for the reception, with almost the entirety of the city invited to take part. A full orchestra had offered to play the reception free of charge – so long as their families could attend. There were people everywhere and the air was alive with excitement and relief.
Kessicia found herself seated at one of the tables near the large dance floor, leaning back against the chair and watching the few couples that had gone to the flattened-out grass patch already. The music had just really begun and many of the guests were still finishing up their dinners. The bar had been open before the arrival of the bride and groom then closed after the food was served, once more open now that the festivities were heading towards more active and jovial areas. Kessicia sat there with a small, honest smile as she watched several men and women laughing, talking, joking and thoroughly enjoying their time among one another. There had been a few that had stopped to look at her, more so that had asked her for a dance or two later on but in overall, her latent succubi abilities seemed to be overpowered by the celebration. Honestly, she wouldn’t have had it any other way.
