 She watches his transformation, then gathers energy to create blue-white, phantom angel wings, her hair returning to its silver color as the sun finishes setting and the moon rises, her blood-mark glittering brightly in the silver glow.

His transformation luckily starts from his extremities to his chest, going inward. Once his arms and legs have changed, he lands on his paws. He notices her getting her wings, and so he smirks mentally. He unleashes a haunting howl. “ARROOOOOOOOOOOOOO!” He starts to run as fast as he can towards their destination.

 she watches as he begins to run, then jumps into the air, flying overheard on her glittering wings.

 ”Anyways, if you want to avoid fights, then the best thing to do would be to not stop until we reach Espherlan. Once we get there, though, we’ll be heading straight for Hell’s Gate,”

He nods. Espherlan is pretty far away… He decides to turn into a wolf, to increase his speed, so he starts to transform.

 ”They were irritating me. Although that one with the back wound MIGHT survive. I hope he does. That way, others will know not to mess with me. Besides, I’m known as the blood-stained angel for a reason. I have a reputation to keep.” Dark jumps off the tree branch, her form glittering red before returning to its more human version, the red light circling above before gathering together and returning to its previous scythe form before falling to the ground to be caught neatly by Dark. “And… I honestly couldn’t care less how many paladin we fight, and it doesn’t matter how many they send after us. I’ll still win.”

“Hmph. I merely meant it would be a pain if we would have to fight all of them.” He starts walking back to the main road ahead of her. The smell of blood was burning his nostrils, and a slight throbbing was starting in his head. He sets his jaw and combats this feeling with all his strength, keeping it from controlling him.

 ”This isn’t even a complete shift, you know. See that shadow,” she points to her own shadow, drawing attention to the glittering marks on the ground. “That’s my form. This is an incomplete version, particularly for when I’m irritated.”

“You think that’s enough? We’ll still win!” The man’s voice was shaking now. Dark couldn’t help but wonder how terrified he’d be if her aura were at full strength, as opposed to the fraction of the original that it was even then.

“…. fool.” She vanished, reappearing in front of him, although he couldn’t react before she tore a large hole in his throat with a back handed strike before impaling another through the remainder of the man’s neck. She jumped over a poorly managed sword strike, landing neatly on the man’s blade before slashing his back open, leaving deep furrows in the flesh and cleanly severing the spine. One more attempted to swipe at her, but all three remaining men paused when she caught his blade, stopping it barehanded before crushing it with ease. She ripped out a portion of his ribcage before ripping his heart from his flesh, holding a bloody mass of crushed organ for the others to view. She stretched her wings, flying towards the remaining two, cutting both in half with her wings before landing on a branch, licking blood off one claw.

She kills them all, and Kibero sighs, his mind slightly freaking out at all the power she has.

He stands up. “You really had to be THIS messy?” There were body parts littered all around, and there was a large pool of blood weaving it’s way through the bodies.”Well, we should get going before someone finds us. I’d rather not have to fight the whole of the Kings Corp on our way to Mag Mal.”

 ”Nonsense! No light show’s gonna make us run! Prepare to fight!”

“You really know nothing… Troublesome.” She raised one hand, calling shadows towards her. “Those are the words of someone who has no idea just who they’re up against. It annoys me when I hear those words…. I’ll make sure you never underestimate me again.” The darkness enters the two slits on the back of her shirt as she holds her scythe out over her shadow.

“I will give you a mere taste… of the true meaning of despair.”

Dark drops the scythe, the weapon turning transparent before disappearing altogether when it hits her shadow, the dark shape on the ground blazing out before changing into… something… with glowing red markings here and there, just as the darkness blazes outwards before taking the form of black angel’s wings. Black aura cloaks her hands before both are revealed as, not the smoky shape of devil claws, but the real thing. Her black hair glitters in the light before turning silver, while her visiable blood-mark changes shape to match that of the one on her demonic shadow’s cheek.

Kibero’s eyes widen, but only slightly. So the difference in our power is that great…? He just watches as she goes under this transformation.

 ”Yep! You’ve been hiding for quite a while, but we’ve found ya now! you’re under arrest. We have you surrounded, and—”

“And in doing so, you disturbed my sleep.” The paladin look up, and see Dark. Her kimono had been returned to her usual outfit— the sleeves unchanged, while her neck down to her ribcage was wrapped in bandages, a blue-black shirt with slits in the back halting just above it. Her pants had returned to the usual coloration, the ends of the legs tattered. Her shoes were solid black with white markings on them. Her eyes and one visiable blood-mark glittered ominously in the setting sunlight, her scythe in a casual grip. “You really are noisy, you know.” She yawned, her slight fangs causing no loss of intimidation.

She jumped to the ground, causing three of the six to jump back, her scythe resting on her shoulder. “My turn. Get out of here, or you will die.”

He sighs, annoyed that he couldn’t take care of them on his own. “I would do as she says, you know.” He knew they won’t, but he said it for added effect. He doesn’t move, though.

 ”Nonsense! No light show’s gonna make us run! Prepare to fight!”

 Sometime during the afternoon, a group of paladin walk through the path, only to see a dozing man lying against a tree. “Hey, do you think we should wake him up?” one asks quietly.

“Nah. He must have been travelling through the night. Let ‘im sleep.”

“Are you nuts? That’s the ex-captain of the Night Raiders—a werewolf. As courtesy, we’ll wait ‘til he wakes up.”

“How long?”

“Sunset. At least. Then, if he doesn’t come quietly, we’ll kill him, and take his treacherous head to the king!”

He doesn’t notice them, as he has been really tired.

When it finally reaches sunset, they start shaking him to wake him up, and he stirs. He groans and sniffs automatically. The smell was off. It wasn’t Dark’s scent. He slowly opens his eyes. “…Of course.” Paladins were around him, swords ready. Kibero’s face doesn’t change. “You’ve found me, then.”

 ”Yep! You’ve been hiding for quite a while, but we’ve found ya now! you’re under arrest. We have you surrounded, and—”

 With a yawn, she snaps her fingers, her clothing changing into a blue-black kimono with ruby trim. She places her scythe against a tree before lying down against it, casting another blood spell to create another transparent veil to block the sunlight before quickly falling asleep.

She is suddenly wearing a Kimono, and a thought momentarily pops into his head. She looks cute in a Kimono… Wait, what I am I thinking?! He shakes his head a bit, and sits down against a tree, and can’t go to sleep.

 She merely shrugs in answer. “We’re going to have to travel with a group of them anyways. In the end, it’s really their own decision.

“Anyways, it’ll be sunrise soon. Let’s get off the main road and make camp.”

He nods, and they start walking into the woods nearby. This sleeping change was fine with him since he barely slept to begin with.

 ”I guess so. Hey, maybe I could even get a member of the Templar to vouch for ya. I’m pretty sure we have a couple of werewolves in there…”

He shakes his head. “…Don’t bother.”
