That was the plan anyway but as usual with her, they always seemed to unravel kind of fast although at least this time, it wasn’t her doing.
The blue sky would suddenly become hidden by a horribly dark cloud and the atmosphere would change completely. The happy seaside town would revert to a living nightmare and no sooner had the sky clouded, bolts of lightning would start to strike at regular intervals, damaging buildings and causing the locals to scream and take cover. Menka was naturally used to storms and merely looked upwards, noticing a strange kind of vortex among the dark sky. It was for sure no ordinary storm and with a twitch of her nine tails, a bemused expression crossed her features. It didn’t feel natural to her and she couldn’t help but ponder if this was the work of someone dastardly After her first meeting with Mura and having been attacked by the summoning maniac who’d thought she was a spirit, Menka had begun to realise just how nutty some humans could be and her mind had been opened to the idea of those who used magic for evil. It wasn’t something that she’d ever considered of course but she was at least aware of it.
Brought back to herself by the sound of screaming, the vixen would turn to see that the roof of one of the buildings had caved in and in a surprisingly selfless act from her, she’d quickly sprint over to it and start to burrow through the wreckage. Her sensitive ears could at least pick up a couple of voices which only caused her speed to increase and she was soon easily hauling up bits of wood and building materials, tossing them aside out of harm’s way. She could hear the thunder roar above her which only caused those around her to scream more but all she could do for the moment was to get those trapped out. Just what was going on?
Using her slayer enhanced strength, she would bodily throw the largest and final piece of debris which had trapped the innocent folks but what happened next was truly baffling. For rather than look up at her thankfully, their expressions were clouded, much like the storm clouds above. Their screams stopped all of a sudden and without any hesitation they lunged for her, much to the vixen’s disbelief. The kitsune had to react fast and jumped backwards, giving herself space, while the group of what turned out to be three trapped people would stand up too. They almost had a zombified look to them and given that they were soon darting towards her again, she sadly assumed that they weren’t just frightened.
“Hey! I’m one of the good girls here! No need to be scared!” She pleaded with the trio, in the slim hopes that she could get through their addled minds.
Needless to say, it didn’t have much effect and they were soon throwing punches and kicks in her direction. So much for gratitude although perhaps that was a bit unfair. They did truly seem out of their minds.
Dodging punches and kicks from the confused men and women, Menka would quite easily be able to handle the danger that they posed. Striking firmly but not enough to hurt them in order to handle them. She didn’t even use her magic and merely used her natural strength to knock them out. In all, there was one middle aged male and two younger women. Fortunately, the fight did not last all that long and none of them stood a chance against the slayer in all honesty. A couple of well aimed blows were enough to each and they were soon laid out on the ground. She wasn’t all that happy about having to do it but what choice had she? Using her magic would have been far worse for them. All she could do then was drag the trio to a safe spot so that they could rest and hopefully recover, before turning backwards and sprinting back into the storm.
So much for a nice day of relaxation.
