Seika glanced in Asami's direction as she heard words float through the air. Ah- she was going to talk to them? "Mhm, okay!" She nodded and gave a verbal sign of agreement, just in case the other mage had already turned away to go and attempt to directly address them. Judging by the way that thug had tossed her around before, she felt like it might not work out so well. But she had already shielded Asami, and preemptively cast a spell that would heal in the case of any damage, so... that was about all she could do right now. That, and hope that Asami wouldn't get hurt or anything because of her fault and not stopping her. However, it would be nice if they agreed to leave the Black Cat Lounge alone just because of a conversation. After all, Agil wasn't paying for the vandalizers to be killed. He just wanted his establishment protected. A promise to stop would do, since they could return again, Seika supposed, if the promise was broken. Scaring them off would be the best option, since they wouldn't want to return in that case, of their own will. Seika pulled herself out of her thoughts and watched carefully, preparing a spell in case anything went wrong. At her side, Aphelia slunk through the fence and began to flank the group of men, unwilling to wait for either of the mages to make a move. The feline was already sure of how this would go, and for those reasons, she began to lay down invisible spells that were traps and could easily be sprung should fighting ensue. And boy, Aphelia felt sure it would. The two did pay close attention to the conversation as Asami suddenly began to move a bit differently, losing the caution that she had so far displayed.
Oh! Apparently, she had spotted the man who had thrown Seika into the wall. It was painful to watch when he ignored her, but as soon as she grabbed him, Seika made a move to go forwards. She began to move quietly, but swiftly, towards the scene, her hands glowing ever so slightly with magic. When Asami asked them to stop with their messing around of the Black Cat Lounge, the mage and her bond mate listened keenly for the response. It wasn't a positive one. Seika threw out her hands, a golden light flying out as the man pushed Asami away. Obviously, a great many of the thugs were drunk, but a few seemed to be on high alert, immediately getting to their feet and beginning to surround Asami. Seika's spell fell around the other mage, colliding with the guys who had drawn too close and knocking them away with a pulse of energy. Anyone who touched it was dazed, their energy drawn out of them and their bodies dealt a solid knock of force. From what she could see, only three were unconscious from that, but most of them had backed away, unsure of getting near. Within a minute, though, the golden light dispersed, leaving only the invisible shields and spells Seika had cast on the mage earlier- still, there was no visible deterrent for the opponents to feel intimidated by. Some were aiming weapons, now, and Seika raised her voice. "Look out!" Behind Asami, a man had a lead pipe raised and was about to try and bring it down on top of the girl in a heavy blow.
Suddenly, Aphelia's voice echoed through their link, breaking Seika's attention away from the human thugs. We have a problem, the feline informed her, and Seika slipped through the fence, phasing through by turning her body momentarily to light and energy. Now on the side of the thugs, her body shimmered lightly before dimming and nearly dissolving into the shadows, courtesy of the illusions she had cast earlier that adapted to the amount of light in the area. Once Seika was fully to the side of the group, she found a horrifying sight. There were three orcs, hulking around in the corner. Even though none had made a move to act yet, they seemed to be intrigued by the fight that was taking place. Aphelia showed Seika in a sudden flash of images that apparently, she had caught sight of giant clubs earlier that leaned against a nearby wall and were presumably their weapons. These weren't anywhere to be seen now, but Seika believed in the presence of them. It was good to be cautious. She decided to deal with them preemptively, since once the human thugs were all down, they would have to make sure the orcs weren't an issue. It would be nice to make certain they couldn't intervene in the middle and cause problems for Asami, as well. With a flash of golden light, Seika blinded the orcs. Two of them immediately began to move, in a slow, fumbling manner, grabbing their clubs. The other didn't budge whatsoever and instead looked to be either thinking or sensing the area. She hadn't heard of orcs ever having magic, but just in case, she inhaled a breath and then sent a stream of bubbles flying from between her lips, contacting that orc in the head. When it didn't seem to take at first, she sent another flurry of bubbles to assault him around the eyes, finally resulting in a slumped over orc. Usually enemies were immobilized from just one attack, but even though it had taken longer for the orc to go down, it seemed like it would be unconscious for a while.
