"Forgive me, miss! I really had no idea this would happen, all I was told was that this heap of snow wouldn't melt or deplete, and could've been used for a bonafide snowball fight. I just wanted to-" The man fell quiet in shame. The Sabertooth guildmaster felt her hands twitch, but managed to keep a straight face, albeit stern in expression. "And you didn't bother to check your 'merchandise' before putting it out here? Seriously… it's a good thing we were near, or god knows how this would've ended. You should be lucky nobody's gotten hurt as of yet!" she snapped, moving across the barrier to put the man down. "You stay here and don't move an inch. If I see you running I'll make sure you regret ever doing so." The cold undertone was all the more a threat to the man, and as her fiery wings flickered vividly as to accentuate her words, the man seemed to shrink all the more and nodded obediently. With a sigh, Kenna took flight again, over the barrier and dropped down in the middle of the square, looking for Itori.
Both had joined the people in Ace of Spades to enjoy the ongoing festival, but found themselves running into a crowd running amock on the square as the icey trigger-happy stingers made a run for their ankles. So instead of enjoying their day off they'd jumped right into containing the critters and bringing people to safety. Somehow the gigantic heap of snow kept on vomiting ice scorpions unto the square, to the point that most of the ground was now covered by them. Kenna's rather angry demeanor was partly to blame due to it; there wasn't much free time as is, so she'd been keen on spending the little free time they could muster together with her lover. Then, to top it off, it was all happening within Ace of Spades' boundaries, triggering her annoyance further because the city fell under her jurisdiction as well. Aside from the physical clean-up, she could already imagine the stack of complementary documents she'd be seeing on her desk in the morning. Lovely.
"Itori! How're things on your end? Are there any civilians still within the boundaries?" she asked the nine-tailed fox, bowling a few scorpions out of her way with a medium-sized, well-tossed fire ball. Swift were her movements as she closed the distance between herself and her favorite vixen, swiping as many icey insects out of her way as she went. If she couldn't get a proper date out of this day then she'd at least make sure to be close to her. Even though she should've gotten closer to the source that was still happily spreading its stingy joy across the square instead. But! Priorities.
That however also came to bite her in the ass. What had first been only a heap of snow and ice started growing spikes, that slowly but steadily found their way out in the open through the soft icey particles bundled atop of it. And then, the heap stood up, revealing itself to its onlookers with a most annoyed grimace on its face. Crap. A Snow Brute. It flashed its stalagmite fangs in a broad smile upon seeing only a handful of people were up against its large stature; it was hard to ignore the sudden cockiness in its form as it rose to full length. "Everyone, move out of the barrier at once!" Kenna demanded resolutely, gesturing at everyone to leave. Although she didn't say it out loud, the demoness was certain that Itori knew she meant everyone but her, and gave the spirit fox a look of understanding. "Let's clean this up real fast, shall we?" Kenna smiled deviously, allowing her horns to appear while undoing the unbridled fire raging within her veins. The poor ice creature would be her punching bag, for the princess to work her unwanted frustrations out on.
