Alistair walked down the road, taking his time to get to the town. He stopped as the ground around him was starting to shake. "What the hell is going on? Is it an earthquake?" He said to himself as he fell and landed on his own butt. He sat there trembling, waiting for the quake to end.
"Finally decided to get serious huh?" Mona smirked wiping off the blood that trickled down the side of her mouth. She'd gotten a blow from the sword but managed to dodge most of the attack. "And you're still at ten per cent of your energy aren't you?"
Within a flash, Mona was in front of the girl about to deliver a punch. She knew that Teresa would try to dodge considering she had her Yoki concentrated at her fist. This was where her ability came to use. With a mere blink of her eye, her Yoki was more concentrated at her foot as she turned to deliver a blow with her limb. Her switch in Yoki concentration was too fast for most Claymores to tell. This was one of the reasons she was a number one once. Her movements were too unpredictable. She made her opponents think she was going to attack from one direction but almost instantly switched to another catching them off guard.
As the awakened girl swung, Teresa lowered her Yoki back below 10 percent, she readied herself to dodge the attack and strafe to the side, but suddenly the awakened's attack switched to her foot with high speed. Teresa first plan had been spoiled so instead she leaped back barely dodging the attack. "That was really unexpected, your attack patterns are very misleading, but I don't have time to waste my energy here, my job isn't to kill you. At-least not yet anyways.." Teresa said as she turned around and continued to walk away to the next town. "That was too close" Teresa thought to herself.
Alistair waited til finally the earthquake stopped. "Wow, what the heck was that? Probably just a random earthquake." He said as he got back up and began to bolt for the next village ahead, now fully awake.
Teresa cleared her distance with the awakened girl, after making it away from her she noticed her head above her right eyebrow was hurting. She touched her head and noticed some blood. That kick caught her off guard grazing her brow barely. Teresa noticed the man she keeps running into heading to the same town as her. She walked behind him slowly closing the distance to the man.
Alistair continued to head for the next town until he heard footsteps behind him. He quickly drew his sword and whipped around with his sword held forward, only to see it was the Claymore he continuously runs into. "Oh it's you. Sorry, thought it was a bandit or something." He said laughing lightly, keeping his sword to his side, just in case.
Mona sighed as the Claymore walked away from her. "Hm. Pity," she muttered before walking away and back towards the village. She knew that this was where the Claymore was heading but didn't pay any mind. She had never intended to start a fight but it just happened like that. She was here of her own accord which was to find out why so many awakened beings were being created for no pure purpose. Her eyes had reverted back to their original dark colour. No one could even tell that she used to be a 'silver-eyed witch.' It didn't take her long to reach the village she'd just now crossed. "Hello there kid. Are you lost?" And again, some old person had to ask her whether she was lost or something. Her child-like appearance was to blame for all this. With a fake pleasant smile she shook her head. "I'm fine good sir. Please carry on with your business." Basically, her statement was a (much) polite way of saying, ''don't come near me and mind your own business!'' She carried on making sure to place her hood back on again. If she were to run into the Claymore again, she didn't intend to fight. Mona needed some time to analyse her strength, something that would take time with the amount of Yoki release she'd received during their dual, and create a strategy to counter it. True that her Yoki abilities countered it anyway but it wasn't enough. For now though, she simply walked through the village hoping no one else would mistake her as a child.
