It was pretty impressive to watch the other girl at work, even if Charlotte wasn’t exactly internally happy about the fact that those crows had to be killed. Obviously there was not much else they could do when under attack, it was just a flock of dangerous birds. But it was during times like this that her undying pacifism showed.
At least she managed to keep her ally safe. Even if there was something powerful enough to get through the barrier, it was constantly renewing itself so it could come back up even after being broken. But the white witch definitely did not count with the crows suddenly becoming one single horrific creature that was still very much hostile.
Even if Katsumi was guarding her along with the barrier, she couldn’t help but yelp rather girlishly, forcing her own pupil-less eyes to look away from the appalling creature. And even in such a heated moment, her partner still managed to give the girl’s mind something to focus on instead of the enemy. Truly she had all the respect in the world for the other girl.
To give her anything at all… focusing on all her available magic spells, she even completely missed the second enemy coming from around the corner. Her own body started glowing in a dazzling white light which slowly started expanding as a large magical circle formed beneath her feet, easily expanding below Katsumi as well.
“I call down the carrier of good news and will - Euangelion!
Suddenly the magic circle duplicated, its copy flying high above them as two different chains emerged from it. One pure white while the other black, the spiraled around both girls and eventually connected with the circle on the ground, enhancing all that was between the two chains - Katsumi and Charlotte. Both of them could feel their strength returning and bodies growing resistant to attacks.
“The warm winds of Spring, come early and help us!
A sudden warmth that would spread throughout their bodies, relaxing them and yet making their muscles stronger. While Charlotte was pretty bad when it came to physical activity, the other girl could surely feel her ability to move and overall speed rising quite a bit in the process.
“And the card of the Wishing well, let us drink from thee!
And finally, one more spell that seemed to create a tarot card of sorts above the white witch’s head, pulsating out energy that started recovering magical supply of everyone in range. Something that she hoped would allow her partner to go all out without having to worry about running out of steam. But all of the spells she used put quite a strain on her body…
She shivered as something opposite to the white she was using until now manifested. A darkness of sorts, from within Charlotte. It flew out in an instant, like a wave of visible plague. And it spread to both the crow and the strange scarecrow reaper. The moment they made contact, numerous black crystals pierced their bodies, making them brittle and much more susceptible to attack.
Katsumi wasn’t affected by it at all, but Charlotte quickly fell to her knees and started coughing uncontrollably, her staff falling next to her as she covered her mouth with her hands. But that didn’t seem to help as a strange pure black viscous liquid flew between her fingers the moment she coughed it out. Almost like as if she was coughing out blood, but even more unnerving.
