    After the surprise factor of her Wind Blast having no effect on the maid wore off Leona listened to Armina's latest verbal barb and watched the dark-haired mage find a comfortable seat from which to watch the fight between Wizard Saint and ax-wielding maid. The carefree nature of the gesture made Leona halfway expect the mage to go get some popcorn to eat while watching the show. That brazen display made Leona more irritated than it should have because it appeared that she did not take the blonde seriously. Leona was going to make her pay for it... later.

    The Wizard Saint wanted to quit wasting time with Armina and attack the maid's mistress directly, but that was not a feasible option. At least not right now, anyway. The maid had to go before she could even entertain the idea of fighting the mistress.

    "Do you kiss your mistress with that mouth?" Leona made an attempt to verbally retaliate after all of the barbs she had been on the receiving end of. Since the blonde did not usually engage in banter with her enemies the attempt might fall flat on its face. She had had enough of the maid and mistress pair and the best way to stop the flow of insults and taunts was to beat them into submission. That was easier said than done, though. Armina had been hard enough to beat down the first time and she had been healed and granted some help from her mistress for the second round.

    Armina made a leaping attack and slashed at the blonde with the ax. Leona managed to dodge it with a timely backflip, then performed two more backflips to put a bit of distance between her and the murderous maid before she used her next spell. She was going to use her Forceful Tempest spell to give herself a boost before taking the fight to close quarters.

    Leona began to channel silver magic throughout her entire body and a thin and visible silver column of air formed around her and began to swirl. When the spell was cast the column expanded outward, but Armina would not take any damage from it because it was just an effect of the spell activating, not a form of attack in itself. Leona now had a faint silver aura surrounding her hands and feet if the maid and mistress looked close enough to see it.

    Leona let the dark-haired mage's "advice" pass without comment. It would suit her just fine if Leona destroyed part of Hargeon Town with some of her most powerful spells and killed some people in the process of stopping her. That way blame for the whole fiasco could be pinned on the Wizard Saint and not the true culprits. Leona was not going to level the town in order to stop the dark-haired mage and Leona would give her some serious feedback on her "advice" once the maid was dealt with for a second time.

    After the Forceful Tempest spell had been cast it was time to get up close and personal with to the maid. Leona sprinted towards the maid, then paused in place when she was close enough to use the technique she was planning to use. With no further delay she performed her Tornado Kick technique, which started with a spinning jump. She spun in the air and when she was at the height of the jump thrust her right leg outwards with her right foot extended, launching a kick aimed at the maid's face. It was a risky move because the maid's face was a smaller target than the maid's torso, but landing the kick to the face would be the most appropriate rebuke for all the trash talking the maid had been doing up until this point.

    Since it was a close-range technique the Tornado Kick could be avoided by ducking, sidestepping, or other forms of dodging. It could also be blocked if the maid was fast enough to block it. Whether the Tornado Kick hit Armina or not Leona would be dangerously close to her enemy once the technique had been performed. That close proximity would give Armina a chance to retaliate against the blonde.

    “Yes and we both enjoy it a great deal.” Armina replied to the blonde’s question, much to both her own and the dark haired mage’s amusement. The blonde woman was clearly not the greatest when it came to verbal sparring and the maid could not help but smile, despite her anger, knowing that her Mistress would easily drive the woman mad, given her skills in the field. It was obvious that Leona was struggling when it came to control, her body language and facial expressions were screaming with anger and adrenaline. The busty purple haired warrior was under no illusions that the Guild Mistress wanted to beat both her and Medeia up, which was perfectly fine, precisely what the dark duo wanted. The more unstable that Leona became, the more effective her Mistresses own powers would be. As for Armina, it just gave the fight a little more vigour and urgency. The blood was certainly pumping now and she loved it.

    Leona again dodged the leaping attack of the maid, which was not a surprise in truth. The blonde had already shown on numerous occasions that she was an agile fighter. It was a bit of a pain for the axe wielder, who much preferred to be up close and personal but she was not going to simply give up because she was at a disadvantage. Oh no, such thoughts had long been purged by the words of her Mistress and the lust for blood that was pulsing through her body. She wanted this woman helpless at her feet and begging for her life. Death would not follow, as Armina knew that Medeia would desire the blonde for another purpose, a trophy to be kept in the dungeons of Errings Rising. A Wizard Saint would be an excellent prize and one that would help to bolster not only the Warlord’s reputation but that of the guild as well.

    It appeared that her enemy was up to something as the maid picked up on a slight change within the wind mage. There was a thin column of air that began to burst forth from her although it did not deal any damage to either Armina or from what she could tell, her Mistress. No, it seemed to be a support spell of some kind and the woman’s grip on her axe tightened, preparing for whatever Leona had in store for her next. An increase to the woman’s already potent power would be a bit of an issue but Armina trusted her Mistresses defensive spell and knew that she was there, supporting her. Any lingering fear was burnt away by the rage that had replaced it.

    Soon enough. Leona moved forwards quickly and jumped into the air, performing a powerful spinning kick that caught the maid off guard. It caught her in the temple, resulting in an angry snarl and knocking her back a touch, her expression briefly becoming one of surprise. Medeia’s armour did a good job of keeping her upright and somewhat limited the damage but it was a good strike nonetheless.

    Embarrassed by being caught off guard by such a simple manoeuvre, Armina would angrily send another Bleeding Slice in Leona’s direction once she recovered, her opponent now well and truly in her ideal range. Each attack that the maid was hit by would only anger her more and the thought of looking weak in the eyes of Medeia was unacceptable. It was the maid who had insisted on fighting, despite Medeia’s assurances and so it was down to her to do well. There were no excuses.

    Medeia watched from the barrel that she was sitting on, her purple orbs easily able to keep up with what was going on. For the moment, she did not attack herself and allowed her maid to keep Leona busy but the honest truth was that the result was obvious. Her maid could not defeat this woman and sooner or later, Armina would fall to her. Still, the dark haired mage did not intervene and try to save her beloved axe wielder. She had already done so once and it appeared that Armina was desperate to go out on her shield. The Warlord sighed at the thought.

    Putting up with Armina’s post regeneration mood swings was going to be such a pain later.

    Leona was visibly satisfied when the Tornado Kick connected with Armina's temple, giving a wolfish grin that exposed her teeth once she landed. The kick to the head was a fitting rebuke for all the trash talk up until this point, but the blonde had not won the second round just yet. She would not win until Armina had been beaten into submission a second time. That would not be easy because the maid was out for blood and had seen a few of Leona's strongest spells during the first round, so she would not be so easily surprised during the second round. Leona should have saved her Silver Blade spell for later, but hindsight was always better than foresight.

    Armina's retaliation came on the fast track... Leona was planning her next move when the ax came down towards her chest. Leona stepped to the right to avoid her chest being split but was too slow to avoid the weapon strike entirely. The ax blade cut down the front of her left shoulder and caused both a good bit of pain and created another bleeding wound. Leona made her anger known to maid and mistress when she glared emerald daggers at Armina.

    The adrenaline was starting to flow beyond Leona's ability to control. It was starting to seep through and she was not sure if she could control it enough to keep a level head. At this point she was not sure if she wanted to hold it back any longer. She wanted to beat maid and mistress into the dirt so badly that it was painfully obvious what she was thinking because it was written all over her face.

    If Armina wanted her face punched in so badly Leona would be happy to oblige.

    Pairing actions to thoughts, Leona made eye contact with the maid. She remained in her opponent's range and maneuvered until she had Armina directly in front of her, then stepped forward one pace and stopped. When she was within range she formed her right hand into a fist and channeled silver magic into it, then performed her Mach Straight technique, which took the form of a straight punch directed towards Armina's torso. As satisfying as attacking the purple-haired maid's face a second time would be, Leona needed to go for attacks to areas that were somewhat easier to hit. Besides, Armina was likely anticipating another attack aimed at her face and Leona was going to make herself slightly more difficult to predict by changing up the target zone a bit.

    The Mach Straight was a simple and straightforward technique that would be equally as easy to dodge if the maid reacted quickly enough to it. It was a straight punch headed in a straight line, so where it was going would be fairly easy to predict if her opponent paid close enough attention. Whether the punch connected or not Leona would still be within ax range when Armina reacted to the Wizard Saint's attack.

    Leona was taking a big risk by staying in her enemy's effective range. However, it had to be done if she was going to beat Armina into submission a second time quickly enough to have energy for the main event. She was not going to let the maid hang around and distract her when it came time to deal with the mistress... Leona's intent was to defeat Armina here and now while she was in good condition. The Wizard Saint needed to stay aware of what was going on and avoid taking any unnecessary hits, but right now any kind of strategy other than "rearrange Armina's face with her fists" was off the table.

    That was because the adrenaline was flowing more freely than it had at the start of the fight. Combat brought her to life in a way almost nothing else could and when that was paired with the flowing adrenaline Leona was feeling so good that her wounds barely bothered her. That good feeling was dangerous to have because it could lead to a whole lot of stupid mistakes, but right now the blonde was feeling like she could take on anyone and win.

    A smile emerged on Armina’s face as her axe made contact with the blonde, her expression becoming incredibly smug and confident. To strike the powerful mage directly brought such elation to the maid and her self belief started to rise more quickly. If she could cut her enemy then she could kill her and that was the realisation that dawned on the purple haired warrior. To defeat a mage of Leona’s class was a notion that should have never passed the woman’s mind but she could not help but think it now. She could defeat the Guild Mistress for Medeia and prove just how far she had come. Oh, she knew that her partner believed in her but there was that desire that perhaps one day, she could defeat someone powerful on her own, without Medeia being there to hold her hand.

    There was definitely a change in the blonde’s body language after Armina’s successful attack and it was obvious that the powerful mage was struggling to control herself. Exactly as planned. Another attack soon came and the maid brought her axe up to try and defend herself from the blow. It looked like a standard punch and the maid was good enough in terms of reaction speed to block it with her axe although the force of the blow did knock her back a fair bit. It appeared that even Leona’s most basic attacks were powerful and Armina knew that she would have to be wary, even with Medeia’s defensive spell. It could negate and protect the mage from most attacks but even it had its limits and would only last so long. Hopefully, it would last long enough for Armina to achieve what she wished to achieve and make her mark on the fight.

    “That look suits you.” The maid laughed, complimenting the blonde in her own way. “I am glad that you are finally getting into the spirit of things.”

    Recovering quickly enough from the knockback, Armina would step back in quickly and try to counter the blonde’s spell with a mighty swing of her axe. She had a target now and the maid was honed in on that wounded shoulder. The purple haired woman would aim to keep battering that area of her foe's body until it was nothing more than a useless stump of meat. The smell of blood was in the air and it was clearly having an effect on the maid, her eyes dilating due to the scent.

    It was also affecting Medeia, who had an affinity for blood of course due to her slayer magic. Her eyes were locked on to the blonde as well and the temptation to interfere in the fight would start to increase. The witch had access to many elements due to her magic and once she caught the scent of one of them, the effect it had on her was startling. Her smile, which had been rather soft and gentle up until that point, would change, becoming more feral and animal like. The anger that was stemming from the blonde only intensified that sensation and the dark haired woman was now fully invested in the Guild Mistress before her. The woman had just been a nuisance who needed to be dealt with but that opinion had changed. She wanted the blonde for herself and would do whatever was necessary to have her. Leona was beautiful and Medeia found herself becoming almost infatuated with her, which meant only one thing, the Silver Wolf mage could not be killed. No, she needed to be taken alive.

    “You are beautiful when you are angry.”
    The witch called out, admiring the Guild Mistress from her position. “I am glad that it was you who we ran into.”

    After the Mach Straight slammed into Armina's torso the Wizard Saint fell deeper into the adrenaline rush. She was currently unable to come up with a sophisticated strategy to defeat her opponent, so close-range fighting would have to do. That was fine with Leona. While she did not excel in close-range combat like her purple-haired opponent, she could hold her own in that range. She still needed to be careful because the ax conferred a reach advantage to her opponent and Leona could underestimate that advantage at her own peril.

    Leona heard her adversaries cheer her on as she edged closer to the precipice. She wondered what their angle was. Maybe they were trying to goad her into using her most destructive spells so that she would wreck Hargeon Town along with her enemies. Armina's laughing certainly did not help Leona's mood. It threatened to send her to a dark place, one full of anger that made her want to reach out and hurt someone.

    Leona's self-esteem had taken a serious blow after the Ishgar Symposium. There she had performed dismally and did not look worthy of being a Wizard Saint. She had made so many stupid mistakes that it would take half a day to write them all down. Just thinking about the humiliation was enough to drive Leona to depths of self-loathing and anger that was directed at herself.

    While most of her anger was directed at herself, sometimes that anger threatened to boil over and affect other people, especially when she was humiliated. Several people had treated her like an idiot in the past. Dr. Harrison of Motor City was one of the worst examples... he had treated her like a thief with no justification and had repeatedly insulted her intelligence. He had even literally kicked her out of his house via a foot to her backside.

    Dr. Reid of Motor City was another example. While she and Leona got along pretty well, Leona could not forget the resentment she felt when Dr. Reid shut down her request to be taught robotics. While the reasoning behind the refusal was sound, Leona felt like the doctor wanted to keep the knowledge to herself and stop a potential rival before they could get started. In her opinion Dr. Reid had wanted to forcibly keep Leona in her place as a "gofer" and the Wizard Saint burned with resentment whenever she thought about it.

    Leona had to shift gears when she saw the ax descend towards her left shoulder. She rose to the challenge and quickly jumped to the right to avoid the weapon. The blade cut the side of her left shoulder but missed her flesh, which was good for her because the timing was so close that only by being under the effects of adrenaline was the Wizard Saint able to react fast enough to avoid the cut. She needed to end this fight quickly before she was too far gone to try to dodge attacks. Getting into a battle of attrition with the ax-wielding adversary was the last thing she needed to do when the fight with the mistress was looming.

    The Wizard Saint jumped backwards three leaps to get some space for her next attack. That was probably a giveaway that the blonde was up to something, but she did not care. She was going to reuse one of her more powerful spells in an effort to end this fight before it bogged down into a fight of attrition. The spell might not hit, but Leona was going to show her adversaries that she meant business. The maid and mistress pair had come here looking for violence and Leona was going to give them what they wanted.

    Leona quickly performed a "flash step" that would send her speeding towards Armina. At the end of it the blonde would reappear and slash at Armina's midsection in a right-to-left horizontal slash with her right hand coated in a sharp blade of wind. Sonic Slash was one of Leona's more powerful spells, one she hoped would bring her closer to ending the fight in her favor.

    However, Armina had seen the spell once before, so chances were good that she might be able to dodge it in time. It could also be endured if defensive spells or armor were strong enough. Another downside was that whether the Sonic Slash hit or not she was going to be standing close to her adversary once the spell was finished. That was not a problem for Leona, though. If she was in striking distance so was her enemy.

    Again, Leona was quick enough to evade the busty maid’s attack and Armina began chasing the blonde down as soon as she jumped away, wanting to keep the distance between them as short as possible. Long range was simply no good for the purple haired warrior, as so few of her attacks had much reach. Sure, she could launch her chains towards Leona or use her allure spell but her opponent had already seen them so would know what was coming. The maid simply had no further tricks and would have to rely on her physical might which was honestly how she liked it anyway. Armina was as true a warrior as any other and had been born and trained to fight face to face and blow for blow. It appeared that Leona was capable of it as well although to the frustration of the axe wielder, she did not stay in that state. All of the backflips and sudden movements were irritating and bothered the maid just a bit.

    All of a sudden, her opponent would move forward at great speed and deliver what appeared to be a slashing attack of some sort. The maid had already seen a similar attack or perhaps it had been this one? Either way, she made no effort to move and trusted Medeia’s defensive spell to keep her up. As it turned out, that half worked, with the slash piercing through the blood armour but because of that, only dealing a portion of the damage. Oh, it most definitely hurt and the maid grit her teeth as fresh blood burst from the maid. Rather than cause her to fear though, it just added to the immense amount of adrenaline and anger that was already bursting through her veins. Pain was just a part of combat like any other and a tool that if used correctly, could be a great asset. Being struck only caused her desire to slaughter the blonde to increase in intensity. Before, she may have become desperate but not now. She was too fully into the rush to let such emotions take control. Her smirk widened, her eyes became a deeper crimson and already she was preparing a counter attack.

    Leona was so close that Armina reacted on instinct, her head leaning forwards in an attempt to deliver a nasty headbutt to her opponent. Hardly an ability but with Armina’s hard head and physical strength, it could cause a great deal of pain and potentially daze her opponent. Whether she was successful or not, the purple haired maid would then spin around, using the momentum to launch a powerful strike with her axe that could cleave the blonde in half if she was not careful. Every move she made now was fuelled by blood lust and rage, blocking out her more rational side and giving herself fully to the hatred that she felt. She knew that her own anger could be used by her Mistress too, which was another reason why she made no effort to contain herself.

    “It is hard to tell who is angrier out of you two.”
    The witch amusedly quipped from her position. “You are both radiating with such delightful hatred and adrenaline. I can hardly contain myself in truth and I so badly desire both of you right now.” There was something new to her tone of voice, a sense of longing that had been missing thus far. “Keep fighting, my dears, fight until there is no strength left in your bodies. There is no greater joy than watching two beautiful ladies fighting for their lives.”

    Well, that was not entirely true and Medeia could think of several other activities that would bring even more joy to her heart but she was not going to utter them aloud.

    Leona was pleased to see that the Sonic Slash had hit a second time but was caught by surprise when Armina attempted to headbutt her. The maid's unexpected attack was successful and Leona was hit in the face by the maid. Armina took the old advice to "use one's head" a bit too literally, but the Wizard Saint had to concede that doing that was a clever move. Unfortunately for Armina the Wizard Saint would not be defeated by a headbutt. It would take a lot more than that to stop the blonde mage from stomping the maid and mistress duo into the dirt.

    Even though she was a bit dazed from the impact of Armina's head meeting her face the blonde noticed what her opponent was doing and took evasive action. Leona ducked under the incoming ax, dropping to her right knee. She leaned forward a little bit and balanced herself with her right hand to keep herself from falling over because she was still a bit dazed from the headbutt and had suddenly dropped to one knee, which was a bad combination for her sense of balance. The ax passed overhead and Leona felt the wind rushing over her head... if she had been standing she would have had a lot more to worry about than a loss of equilibrium.

    With the powerful ax swing successfully dodged Leona quickly stood up and faced her opponent. Leona then formed her right hand into a fist and channeled silver magic into it. When the technique was ready Leona took a single step forward and used her Mach Uppercut technique to throw an uppercut punch aimed under Armina's chin.

    The Mach Uppercut was not guaranteed to hit because it targeted a small area on Armina's body. Armina might be able to see it coming and dodge the punch. It might also miss on its own because the blonde was dazed from receiving the headbutt earlier and was under the effects of a potent cocktail of adrenaline and anger, which made her prioritize hurting Armina over being precise. Just like with all the other close-range techniques and the Sonic Slash spell Leona would be left in her enemy's strike zone whether the Mach Uppercut hit or not. Again Leona did not care too much about that small detail.

    She wanted to hurt Armina badly. She wanted to stomp Armina into the dirt and show the purple-haired nuisance what it was like to fight a Wizard Saint who was angry and not holding very much back. The dark-haired mage had better take note of what was happening to her maid because once the maid had been beaten down she was next. Then she would get to be part of the show that she was currently enjoying. Leona wondered how the dark-haired mage would enjoy going from being a spectator to being a participant.

    The clash of heads was not all that pleasant for Armina either but the satisfaction that she took from it was enough to make up for any pain that she was feeling. Any blow that she scored on her foe was worth it and the maid was more than prepared to put everything on the line in order to harm the blonde. The honest truth was that she had nothing to lose. A defeat would only force her to regenerate, nothing more and that knowledge did so much to erode any fear that she felt. A week or so of depression after was a smile price to pay for the elation that she was feeling at that moment and to fight in front of her Mistress always brought her so much joy. She would remember this fight and regardless of the result, she would use the pain and hatred for the blonde to push herself further in the future. The purple haired woman would be back, butchering all those in Medeia’s path forever. It was the perfect life for her.

    Once more, Leona dodged her axe attack although this time she moved underneath, before rising up with an attack of her own. There was not enough room to get out of the way and she ended up taking the blow directly, the force of the uppercut sending her head upwards and causing her to see stars for a few seconds. It was another powerful blow which did some damage and the maid was briefly dazed but the anger and rage that was pumping through her brought her back into the fight. All the punch did was annoy her even more, inspiring her to fight even harder. She was not going to go down to an uppercut and she could feel the supportive properties of the armour spell that Medeia had used on her to regenerate some of her health.

    “I felt that one for sure.” The maid laughed, before she would use her chain spell in order to try and keep the blonde still, the purple coloured metal attempting to ensnare and lock her enemy down. The reason why would be obvious as successful or not, the purple haired woman would retaliate soon enough with yet another axe attack although this time, she swung low, in an attempt to damage the blonde’s legs, which would, with any luck, hinder Leona’s movement. There was not doubt that the blonde was faster than her and so Armina would attempt to nullify that advantage.

    Truth be told, Medeia was becoming just a little restless by just sitting on the sidelines. Allowing Armina to fight for her was hardly new but there was something about the passion and anger in Leona’s style that was so intoxicating to the witch. She desired to fight the woman herself, in a way that she rarely did with her opposition, especially those who were female.

    “You have been holding back for a long time.”
    Medeia mused aloud as she watched. “The anger I feel from you is not something that comes from simply being insulted. Yours is like a volcano which has finally erupted after an age of building up. Why is it that you have carried this resentment and hatred around for so long? Is it even us that you despise? Come on. Tell us.” She did not expect an answer but it was amusing to probe the blonde nonetheless.

    “Must you make things worse, Mistress?”
    Armina complained although her tone of voice made it clear that it was meant in a humorous way.

    The Mach Uppercut found its target and Leona expressed visible pleasure with another wolfish grin. Her joy was fleeting when Armina brought out the purple chains for another attempt to ensnare her and fired them directly at her. Fueled by adrenaline and instinct, Leona managed to evade the chains with a very closely timed jump to the right despite her close proximity to the maid, but what she did not count on was a quick ax swing following the chains being fired at her. If Armina was watching closely she could see the surprise on Leona's face as the latter sailed right, unable to change her trajectory.

    Leona felt the ax slice her left leg just below the knee and when her feet touched the ground she visibly wobbled and then took several wobbling steps backwards. When she stopped wobbling and regained her balance she glanced down at her left leg. The cut was not too deep but it was deep enough to cause a good deal of bleeding. More importantly it caused the blonde no small amount of pain, but she would have to get through it to win this fight before it dragged on too long.

    At least she did not lose her leg to the ax.

    Leona finally steadied herself and listened to the dark-haired mage make an observation. Most of the observation was true. Leona had been holding on to a lot of feelings that she should not have even developed to begin with. She was a Wizard Saint and she was supposed to be above things like anger and resentment.

    Leona's anger had had years to build and had many reasons to accumulate. She hated Dr. Harrison's brusque treatment of her. She hated Dr. Reid's shutting her down when she expressed an interest in learning about robotics. She hated Mr. Bank's condescending remarks towards her. It felt like everyone wanted to use her as a "gofer" and no one took her seriously.

    Then again, why would they take her seriously when she was too afraid to make a stand when it mattered?

    Time and time again she had tried to be an ideal Wizard Saint. She tried to avoid making a scene and tried to avoid making enemies out of the people she was supposed to protect and serve by not being too forceful with her actions. All of that effort had gotten her nowhere and had resulted in tragedy at the Ishgar Symposium. That day she was virtually useless and had to rely on Kyran, Maven, and Lehanna to get anything done.

    She had been so stupid and a lot of people had died because of her stupidity.

    "I despise both of you." Leona started her response after facing the dark-haired mage.

    "You think people are just playthings. You don't care how many lives you ruin, how many families you destroy when you go looking for some fun." Leona continued to rail against the maid and mistress pair as she found herself slipping deeper and deeper into anger. Coming to Hargeon Town and mindless killing its residents was fun to them. They did not care how many people died as long as they had their fun.

    Leona began to remember her childhood in Desierto and the aftermath of each bandit or slaver raid into her home village. She remembered all of the corpses lying on the sand and all of the tears shed by survivors who had lost family members to death or slavery. She remembered it all and how she wanted revenge on them for using her home village as their playground.

    Leona finished her words as abruptly as she had started them. She was not big on moralizing speeches or speeches of any kind and trying to talk them down would be a waste of time. The only thing they understood was violence and she would gladly give them all the violence they wanted.

    Leona looked towards Armina and raised her right hand, aimed it at Armina, and channeled silver magic into her palm. When it was glowing silver she thrust her palm forward, firing a visible horizontal column of air at the maid. It was Leona's physical response to the observation from the dark-haired mage and it was directed at the maid.

    The Air Pressure spell could be avoided if Armina was fast enough to dodge it. It could also be endured if the armor or magical shield was strong enough to withstand it. Leona was not sure if the Air Pressure spell would hit or not, but it might buy her a little time for her leg to recover enough to handle the speed at which she moved and the acrobatics she tended to do.

    All of Leona's words and the spell she had cast at Armina were meant to conceal the fact that the dark-haired mage was right... from a certain point of view. Leona did despise them for what they had done to Hargeon Town and what they planned to do, but there was someone Leona hated more than the maid and mistress pair. The blonde was going to let the dark-haired mage figure that one out... if she could.

    Leona was not the only one grinning after the latest exchange, as Armina had also managed to catch the Guild Mistress in the leg with her axe. It did not appear to be a deep wound but that did not matter to the maid, a hit was a hit and her grin matched her opponents. This was so much fun and the purple haired warrior could not remember the last time that she had enjoyed herself quite so much. The thoughts regarding victory and defeat were beginning to slip away, replaced by her desire to just enjoy and embrace what was happening right now. The fact that she was against a far more powerful mage than herself meant nothing anymore and Armina would fight until she was well and truly defeated. She would come back all the stronger for it and one day, the maid would smash this woman into a bloody pulp and that would be the end of it. Revenge was a constant companion of both herself and her Mistress. It had been that way since the beginning and would never change. Leona would regret ever crossing blades with them. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow but one day, the two dark mages would strike a personal blow that this woman would not recover from. If they could not strike her directly, then they would find another way.

    It was apparent that Leona was incredibly close to losing her composure completely and both the maid and Mistress began to smile in the same way. Knowing smiles that would probably annoy the Wizard Saint even more. This was precisely what they had been hoping for and it seemed that the blonde haired woman was a font of anger and rage that could be tapped into. Medeia was almost vampire-like in her ability to devour anger and with the affinity for blood that she possessed as well, the Guild Mistress was almost the perfect target for the dark mage to feed upon. Her slayer senses were becoming wild and even the usually calm witch was struggling to maintain control over herself. The temptation to join the fight was becoming almost overwhelming and yet still she forced herself to remain still, allowing the desire and want to churn inside her well endowed and shapely frame. When she did decide to get involved again, the odds of the town around them being blasted to bits would rise immensely, for a bloodlust fuelled Medeia was a force of nature and one that could only be rivalled by the most powerful of mages.

    To the slight surprise of both women, Leona actually replied to Medeia’s musings although it was about as standard as one would expect from a holier than thou do gooder. Neither maid nor Mistress were impressed by it and their expressions became rather blank. The Guild Mistress’s words were partly true although there was one particular point that she had missed, which the dark haired mage was more than willing to make perfectly clear. “Play things? You overestimate the value of those who live here, Leona, they are just sheep to us. They blindly walk around these lands, living their dull and uninteresting lives, never wanting anything more than they are given. We have no interest in them and the only reason that we attack them is because we know that a superhero like you will sooner or later appear and try to stop us. It works every single time. They are not playthings, they are the bait and you took it hook, line and sinker. The only ones that we truly wish to play with are mages and the stronger they are, the better.”

    Leona was already on the attack again and as she unleashed another powerful burst of wind, Armina felt a jarring pain as she was struck directly by the spell. The armour did well to protect her but the attacks from the Guild Mistress were becoming stronger and the purple haired maid was starting to feel overwhelmed, even with the armour. What was worse was the secondary effect, as just as Armina was about to launch a counter strike, her movement suddenly became slower, as though she was being weighed down by something. It caused her to briefly panic and she shouted. “Cheap trick! Are you scared of me or what?!” She would try and launch another attack with her axe but she was moving so slowly that it would not be hard for the blonde woman to dodge.

    Medeia would try to aid her maid by continuing her verbal musings, attempting to probe at the mental state of the Silver Wolf member once again. “Why are you so desperate to save the people who live in this town anyway? Surely a Wizard Saint such as yourself should be tackling the larger issues. What about the war between Pergrande and Bellum? I am surprised that I have not heard of any of your heroic deeds during the conflict so far. Where were you when half of Joya got blasted to pieces.” She paused and then added. “I confess that I have a modicum of respect for whoever launched that attack.”

    Leona was somewhat surprised to learn that the whole point of the attack of Hargeon Town was to lure heroic mages out for a fight. It had certainly worked in luring out Leona, but she had come here for a break from her trip to Haunted Guild. She had not come here just to take on the maid and mistress pair... she did not even know they were here until the commotion from earlier had drawn her attention and she had encountered them at the source of the commotion. The fact that the encounter with the pair had been a matter of luck made the Wizard Saint feel a bit ashamed.

    Had the maid and mistress not caused such a commotion she would have likely walked around the town for a bit, grabbed some coffee, and then moved onto Haunted Guild for her personal errand, leaving Hargeon Town completely defenseless.

    Leona was not proud of the fact that her battle with the pair was almost entirely by accident instead of a heroic decision to take on a Warlord and her servant. She quickly got over it when she heard Armina's criticism of her strategy, such as it was. Leona called herself being flexible and playing to Wind Strike Magic's strengths, one of its greatest being flexibility due to its mix of close-range techniques and long-range spells. Armina was obviously used to "fighting" people who had no chance of defeating her, so whenever she encountered someone who could fight back and possibly win she did not handle it well.

    "I'm not afraid of you, Armina. You seem to be having a bit of trouble against me, so I just thought I'd give you a fighting chance by backing off a bit." Leona answered the maid's attempt at a cheap shot by slinging one of her own in a casual tone that had an undercurrent of anger. The verbal barb probably did not come off as very casual, so it might not have its full effect. It was also obvious that the Wizard Saint was bleeding from the cuts Armina had managed to land on her, so the taunt might lose more of its potential impact because of that.

    Armina had been hit by the Air Pressure spell and had lost some of her speed because of an effect of the spell, but that did not keep her from trying to take another swing at the blonde. Thanks to the maid being slowed down Leona had enough room to dodge the ax swing by doing a sidestep to the right. If the maid looked closely she could see the blonde wince when she put her left foot down, which would show her that the cut just below the blonde's left knee had done something beyond just drawing blood.

    Leona took a moment to think of her next attack on the maid and was almost ready to make it when she heard the dark-haired mage talk to her. The question about why she put so much effort into trying to defend Hargeon Town was followed by a reference to the ongoing war. The big punch came when the lowest moment in Leona's life was mentioned... the outcome of the Ishgar Symposium.

    Leona felt the familiar emotions of shame and humiliation wash over her and temporarily dampen her anger as she recalled all the things she could had done differently. She recalled the humiliation of having to rely on Kyran, Maven, and Lehanna to get anything done because she was stupid enough to not pack a ranged weapon for possible combat. She recalled everything she did wrong and wanted to disappear to her personal space station or somewhere where no one could find her.

    Maybe this world would be better off without her.

    Then her anger came back in full force. She was so angry that she bit her bottom lip hard enough to draw blood. Leona quickly spun around to face the dark-haired mage before delivering her response.

    "SHUT UP! WHEN I TAKE CARE OF YOUR MAID YOU'RE NEXT!" Leona shouted, jabbing her right index finger at the mage. It was painfully obvious that the Ishgar Symposium was a sore point with the blonde. There was no hiding it and Leona did not even try to hide how she felt.

    She then turned back to the maid and extended her right arm, aiming her right index finger at the purple-haired nuisance before channeling silver magic onto her fingertip. When the spell was ready Leona fired the Wind Bullet at the maid.

    Armina had already seen the spell, so she might be able to dodge it if she were fast enough. Wind Bullet could also be endured with strong enough armor or magical shields. The spell also had a chance of missing on its own because of Leona's fury possibly throwing off her aim. Leona had her teeth clenched in anger as she watched Armina to see if the Wind Bullet would hit or not.
