"I suggest you get off, Veronica..." Red Eye warned her, revealing that he somehow knew her name. Moments later, while she was stuck in confusion, the robber extended his arm out behind him, and pushed Veronica off. Then, he used that arm to roll to the side, and end up on top of her, holding her hands out. "You don't want to do this, girl..." he threatened Veronica, squeezing her wrists so that she was forced to let go of the pistol.
"Oh, so you are a stalker as well?" Veronica glared up at him, refusing to let go of the pistol for a while.. but in the end she dropped it. "Get off of me!" She screamed as she started kneeling him in the stomach over, and over again till he would loosen up. "You are the one who doesn't want to do this!"
"By future you mean whatever the heck those boys are right there? Really, what has this world come to?"
"Don't talk to me like you're above me. They're DEAD. Yet they're standing right there all mutated and not human. WHAT DID YOU DO!?" Emile shouted, stepping foward but of course Phil stood in his way of getting to Setsuna. "Tch..."
"Father just made a few adjustments to their bodies. I was surprised he was able to do that, but I guess that serum I made them all drink helped keep their bodies intact...Brother, remember mother? I looked at the file, she wanted to walk you home from the academy, knowing full well*of the dangers." Setsuna stopped as Brother stood up.
"What are you playing at...?" Brother was rather fragile of the incident, so he wasn't too happy about this whole meeting.
"...Tell me, do you feel guilty for her death? Do you go on each day with the ghosts of your pasts? I think I know why you left, because YOU COULDN'T GO ON- SHUT UP! LIVING WITH THE FACT YOU HID AND WATCHED OUR- I SWEAR, SETSUNA... MOTHER GET BRUTALLY MURDERED!" Setsuna shouted loudly, flinging his arms back in anger.
Brother jumped on the table and ran at Setsuna, throwing a punch at his face but was blocked, so he grabbed his arm and threw him into a nearby table. "THERE WAS NOTHING I COULD DO!" Brother cried, waiting for him to get up.
Emile watched, but Phil and the others turned to him as if seeing their 'leader' engage sparked some kinda order to attack any others. "Whoa, Phil it's me! Emile!" They spread out, circling him. "Gah, this is gonna be hard..."
Setsuna got up quickly, flexing his fingers. "I won't have any problems killing you, you and your little pals. Upon my inspection of them, they're now convicted of treason..." His fingers turned into the metalic slime, hardened and molded to be lethal claws. "Even you!" Sprinting ahead, he lunged at Brother but was able to dodge it and jump away. Distance was gonna be key.
"Oh, but yes, I really do..." Red Eye countered, snatching the pistol and swiftly standing back up. "Although, I'm not like you. So instead, I leave you with a gift." he told her, pointing the pistol at Veronica, prepared to shoot her. Pulling the trigger, the man took aim, but didn't hit her. He just had the bullet strike the ground, beside her head. "I could have brought your life to a close, just now. Do you think you would have been missed? Perhaps, your death would have set off some unwanted sorrow, and depression? Or maybe lead to more deaths, that could have been prevented?" Throwing out the possibilities, Red Eye hid the pistol in his cloak, walking away, calmly. "A lot can be wagered on a single life. So maybe you shouldn't take them away, so carelessly..." It was strange, indeed, coming from a robber. But soon, Red Eye was out of Veronica's sight, and had entered a different ally. "That was too close..." he sighed, placing his hand on his mask.
Kaji stared up at the dress that hung before her; it was in an apple type design before she could say anything though Vivian had already grabbed the dressed and pushed her off into a nearby dressing room. *
Kaji put it on and it was apparently an exact fit for her, it felt a little uncomfortable to her since it actually showed off her body, and wasn’t the baggy clothing she was used to. *“Uhm? Don’t you think this is a little too revealing?” *She asked pushing the door open
Vivian was standing right in front of it and let out a fan-girlish squeal. “I love it!” She giggled “You look soo adorable!”*
The girl just blushed at being called adorable “T-Thank you.” She said looking away.
“You have to get that! I will NOT let you out of the store without it!”
“Uh, Okay…” Kaji said not exactly knowing what to do in this situation.
After a while Vivian had got her a few more clothes and offered dying Kaji’s hair. There was a fury of things being thrown around before Kaji had finally paid the woman and left the store in the apple type dress and accessories, including the hat. *
Veronica lied there, not moving an inch, just staring up at the gloomy sky. She could just have been killed. She couldn't quite understand or relate some things Red Eye just said, or found those words ironic for a thief.. but still came to a realization how careless she was. Exhaling, she turned her head to the side where the bullet was shot. Closing her eyes, she slowly sat up, looking around. She was completely alone now, just a couple of cats feasting in the trashcans.
Realizing what was going on inside, Kimiko slammed the window open jumping in and soon reaching the main room. She grabbed two of the five boys surrounding Emile and just threw them away to the completely opposite side of the room. "What the heck is going on here!?" She shouted, glaring at Setsuna. Soon enough she bolted towards him, knocking two more boys off balance and wrapping her arms around Setsuna holding him back from Brother. "You are so pathetic, going after your own brother..." Of course, her arms were now claws, and she was tightly holding onto Setsuna so it would be rather hard to break free.
"You? No. Your presence? Yes." Poison answered, closing his eyes and letting his body cool down. "Where are your other little beginner friends?" he asked, curiously. Only because he wanted to know the whereabouts of Kaji, though. Turning his head back to face Tara, he smirked, and glared at her.
Tara looked away from his awkward glare and just shrugged "Home.. I don't know..." After a short pause Tara spoke up again, as that well known blush of hers colored her cheeks. "I have a feeling you look down on us, or doubt our abilities because we are beginners.. Let me just tell you we aren't helpless nor weak."
"Even if I wanted help, I don't want YOURS...!" Emile shouted at Kimiko, but that was cut short as Phil ran at Emile and gave him a powerful blow to the guy. "Hoooo...!" Countering, Emile grabbed his hand...too bad Phil COUNTERED THAT and split open like last time. "Naaaah!!" Letting go, Emile ducked the vice snap of Phil's mutated body-mouth thing. "Gah, that is SO WRONG!" He ben his knee back and kicked him away, making him stumble back and trip over one of the other mutants that fell.
"Don't intervene in these affairs, stupid girl." Setsuna ejected one of his claws into her knee. That pierced through her and then the floor, ultimately pinning her to the floor. While the missing clawregenerated on his finger, Brother tackled Emile to the floor and then the two rolled around for dominence until Brother got the upper hand.
"This world will be free of you..." Brother mouthed those words, both hands choking the life out of his younger brother. "....!? Grrr..." Through his stomach, five claws pierced his flesh. But he kept up his heartless act until he looked at Setsuna's face. In his mind, he felt like he was staring at forever...seeing the young boy's innocent face from all those years ago. His grip loosened, the claws came out and he fell over.
"Haaaah....hah....hah..." Setsuna gasped for air, then looked down at his Brother. He pondered why he didn't kill him...mercy? "...Stupid...lets go." Setsuna ran away, heading for the back exit of the casino.
"Not again!" Emile screamed, inside Phil's mouth again. But he was spit out upon hearing Setsuna's order.
Brother heard it, but he was too terrified to even move. Even some tears fell from his eyes...whether it was the pain in his heart or the pain from those aweful wounds Setsuna gave him.
"Honestly, I highly doubt that. I saw how the candy man pummeled that pathetic yeti. And you didn't even have any mercy on that poor little girlfriend of yours. You're like a bunch of newborn sharks... all eating each other up." Poison went on, walking away and letting his arms drop by his sides. "Not to mention, since you all came in a group, you probably know each others weaknesses, all-too-well. It's just not equal. None of you are fit for this dojo, or anything else alike."
