    Blow. It literally spins his head around multiple times, his neck twisting.

    And has little effect other than to make him frown at her.

    Seeing Nevalinna however, makes him frown even more.

    ďArmor? So, that traitor Knight showed you the secret craft. You are unfit to wear such a prize. Your insolence is matches my your motherís, though at least she had the power to back her words up.Ē

    He grins, head still twisted around multiple times.

    ďShe fought hard, little princess, but what is a Queen compared to a God? Little and less it seems.Ē

    His eyes track to Inanna.

    ďAnd you. A pretender to godhood. Fancy powers wonít save you from me, little Oni, and whatever that barrier is wonít save your wife.Ē

    He gestures and a portion of his black vomit still on Sarada turns into an actual portal that swiftly swallows Sarada whole before dissipating.

    ďAnd now sheís all mine.Ē

    His head snap spins back around and he swiftly grabs Inanna and prepares to vomit all over her face this time, readying to convert her.
    The barb, if it could be considered such, meant absolutely nothing to Inanna, the moment Sarada and their child were subsumed and whisked away. The fact that Auroc intended to vomit on her and attempt however futilely, meant even less.

    He'd taken her Little Love ... their child. Meant to corrupt them and make them unwilling slaves.

    Why ?

    A little more power ... nothing more.

    And for all her hard work, and the hell she'd undergone to find her happiness ? She wasn't strong enough. He was going to get away with it ... and she'd lose them.

    No ...

    Inanna's arm dropped down to her side, and she hung suspended above Vocado's battered landscape. Not again ... And when Neva knocked Auroc away, the golden-eyed woman she didn't notice.

    What was she to do, when the Universe considered to take away from her what she loved, and cared for ? Kept building her up only to just as quickly attempt tearing her down, in some sort of perverted attempt to balance the scales if for no other reason than 'because the Gods will it' ?

    Give up ?

    No ... she'd promised, and though she was not forced into it; she wouldn't simply cave and quit. But was it worth fighting ? Playing the game ?

    Inanna clenched her fists. "No ..."

    And yet ... her love was gone, and would die if she didn't do something. Because a God however false, willed it.

    So what then did that leave her ? To kill him, and get her back. Whatever it took.

    "..."

    The golden-eyed woman dropped down to the planet's surface. She needed energy. Power ... and the planet was already dying. So what was a few drops more siphoned from it ?

    Nothing.

    ... so she spread her palms.

    Yeah, but if you... man, we're getting into weird analogy territory, like if you disintegrated Superman's arms he wouldn't be able to go "fool! Little did you know that my arms and I are one and can be remade from me!" and will his arms back into being from pure nothingness. - Pendaran

With him distracted by Inanna and disoriented by his absent senses, she could rush in, capture Sarada in a capsule, and use Tasure's instant transmission technique to whisk her away to Otherworld. She was fairly confident that Shek'hinah wouldn't allow anything to happen to her daughter-in-law and would do all she could to remove whatever that sludge was. She was also banking on Auroc not so much as being ignorant of Otherworld, but being completely incapable of traveling there himself.

    Okay. The window to escape and saving Sarada was wide open. She wasn't going to fail her again.

    She reached into her belt and pulled out a capsule, then...







    She was gone. Disappeared before her very eyes. Snatched away before Parsley even had a chance to try and save her.

    "...no..."

    Again.

    She let her get taken away again! Parsley was right there and she was too slow! Just like eleven years ago, when she was too weak to hold onto her and let her get swallowed up by that crowd. And then too weak to push past the weaker officers and get her back before it was too late.

    Again...



    Her hands trembled as her breathing grew heavy. It was getting harder and harder to keep the lid on her emotions screwed on.

    Why did she waste so much time? Why could she... Why did she...

    Why?

    Why?

    Parsley would never forget what she saw when she eventually found Sarada in that monster's apartment. The screams from her sister were permanently seared into her brain. When she heard the details of those three days and the nightmare Sarada endured, it made her hate herself even more because she could have prevented that. Slow... weak... all this power and for what?! I can't even protect the people I love the most!

    Auroc's voice taunted her, rubbing her failure in her face.

    It was starting to slip.





    With one single harrowing roar, all of her self-hatred, anger, pain, and frustration exploded out like a bursting dam. There was no analysis, no observation, no patience, and forethought. Only hatred and a single, overriding desire to kill Auroc and everyone associated with him.

    Like a wild animal, she erupted toward the reeling Auroc, joining Nevanlinna in a merciless assault on the "god".
    A silver lance of energy rains downward, piercing through Parsleyís foot as a figure floats above, hand extended in attack.

    One of Aurocís Knights.

    It all seems sealed up, but Dash notices that the external security system is not working.

    She does find an open window oddly enough.

    One of Auroc’s Knights.

    [snip]

    “Mi’lord, I shall deal with this trash!”
    Parsley hissed in pain and stumbled back. The pain that shot through her injured foot every time she put any pressure on it near made her fall to the ground. Through her grief-stricken, guilt enhanced rage, she cast her gaze upward to find the source.

    A knight blindly loyal to Auroc.

    There was no time for this nonsense! With every second that passed, it was another second for whatever was on the other side of that portal of Auroc's to cut Sarada open and turn her child into another slave. She wasn't going to stand for it!

    Even if the wrathful haze was a thick as a cloud of black smoke, she could still think clearly. She knew that with this knight and another one accosting Inanna, there was no way either of them were going to be able to get to Auroc.

    She bared her fangs and snarled. "Fine." Piecemaker in hand, she exploded forward, barreling toward the knight. Hoisting the ax above her head, she swung downward, intent on cutting into his neck.

    He parries the blow, spinning artfully on one foot and attempts to slash her across her back.

    Parsley had been training constantly with her ax and had gotten to the point where it felt like an extension of her arm. But, an ax wasn't a sword. With a much larger blade, this knight's range was greater than hers. Yet, that was just as much a disadvantage as it was an advantage. If she could get inside his guard, his life would be coming to an end.

    She blocked the sword with her ax by quickly spinning and hastily throwing it up while off-balance. Regaining her composure, she slid forward and fired a blast at point-blank range.

    It strikes the armor, but the magic of the Silver Knight armor holds up. He steps back, channels energy, and grey aura surrounds the blade.

    “Phantom strike!”

    He lashes out, a ribbon of grey energy slicing towards Pasrsley.

    The moment the armor ate her blast, she could sense the magic permeating through it. From that moment, she knew what she needed to do. As long as the magic remained, the knight would be essentially untouchable.

    She flew up quickly to avoid the Phantom Strike, then closed in on the knight. A pure white energy cascaded from her and into the knight, filling the runic symbols on the blade until they also glowed with that same white energy. She found out a long time ago that she -- and only she -- could channel energy through the ax. While some of her training was spent channeling the bog standard ki through it to add some extra oomph into her strikes, she spent much of her time channeling anti-magic through the blade. Through training with Inanna, she found out that using anti-magic in this way -- through her ax instead of from her directly -- had a far greater effect. That effect, she hoped, would carry over to now.

    Using Tasure's Instant Transmission technique, she teleported into the knight's blindside and swung, hoping to bury the ax's blade into his side. While in this close proximity, she began to drain the magic from the armor.

    The blow lands, burying into the armor. The Knight grunts, staggers, and you can feel the magic being taken away. However, his blade snakes back around, the Threshling physiology allowing the arm to bend and stretch slightly, and he makes a sweeping blade attack against Parsley’s arm holding the ax.

    The armor's magic was draining thanks to her enchanted ax, but she couldn't hold it for long, not with his sword bearing down on her. She didn't want to risk losing an arm and having to get a mechanical arm like Sarada. She released the ax and retreated to the opposite side of the knight.

    Once released from her grip, the ax lost its anti-magic charge. She smirked and called the ax back to her hand. Because the knight was between the ax and her, it had no choice but to go through him. Blade first.

    Inanna barely notices. More focused on stripping Vocado of energy it would never use. Though ... she did open her mouth to speak ... "No."

    He grunts as it starts to tear deeper, but he quickly turns and lets it get ripped out instead. He staggers, but raises the blade in defiance.

    The Knight blocks with his blade and is pushed backwards twenty feet, digging into the ground as he does so. However, he maintains the block, holding her blast at bay.

    Three years had passed her arrival and yet the Beast still lived. Having lost track of Rex during the chaotic events that occurred up north in the mountain of a forgotten kingdom. Since then, she had attempted to hunt him down, only to find tracks made long in his passing. The price the beast had paid to gain the power left there had no doubt not been enough for whatever destructive plans he had. In the end, she could only wait and prepare for the time he would reemerge.

    She knew of them mostly through her databases, having encountered only one of them among the numbers of the M-Fighters, the one known as Nevanlinna. Their kinda no doubt wiped out in her timeline and the conflicts involving them here had taken place before her arrival, Shōchū could have been forgiven in overlooking any potential threats from their kind. Reading through the battle reports from Quila that had documented the threshling hybrid, Jagam, during her hurried flight to Captial City, the machine mutant felt properly prepared as she descended to Capsule Corps.

    Data-poured into the peripherals of her vision as she scanned the building, hope to find signs of what to expect from within.
