Shannon was definitely rushing now. The very slurred response she got and the image she last saw of Ray definitely worried her. The young seer was near the water sooner than she thought she would reach it. She was quick in seeing Ray, considering Tatsu was there was well, waving his little black wings like a flag. “Ray!” She called out, stepping on the ledge, coincidentally the very same ledge that the heiress had tried to reach earlier. It was still too far though and Shannon did not have that necessary upper body strength to haul in the injured and very wet summoner. Besides, she didn’t dare risk it because trying it might just hurt Ray more.
6+1 = 7
Although she had not tried it before, forming the earth into a shape she wanted it to take, Shannon felt that she can do it. Not perfectly, mind you but well enough. Keeping her hands in contact with the ledge, she began to extend it. Forming steps leading down and then part of it was submerged in the water. She would definitely use it to keep a better reach the other summoner. She hoped she won’t regret this but Shannon dispelled the energy chain she was holding on. She won’t be able to move Ray on her own; actually she was rather afraid to. She didn’t know just how injured her friend is.
Shannon tested the steps first, wanting to know if she had made them sturdy enough. Yup, they were stable enough so she made her way down. Tatsu, seeing his mistress coming down, made a considerable effort to stir him and Ray closer to the earthen steps. The water is freakin’ cold! Shannon could not help but shiver as she stood in the water. She wasn’t standing on the lowest step but low enough that the water reached her knees. She waited until Tatsu and Ray were close enough and then reach out, grabbing Ray by the upper arm and pulling her closer. “I got you. I got you Ray. It’s gonna be okay.” Shannon whispered like a mantra as she kept a tight hold on the other summoner.
9+1 = 10-5 = 5 First Aid
Spells really were not her forte, Shannon thought grimly. Ray needed more than just the first aid she could offer but she hoped, at the very least, she had done something to heal some of the other spark’s injuries. “Tatsu.” She called the little summon to her. “Go get help.” The little black head nodded and Tatsuhiko immediately fluttered his wings to carry him up. Shannon hoped Tatsu would find help soon. She watched her summon fly up for a few more seconds and then turned her attention to Ray. Water was still reaching around their legs, Shannon thought it would be better if they weren’t in the cold water. Her pulling Ray close to her drenched her own clothes. “Achoo! Achoo!” She sneezed. Brr… Cold but she held on.
Tatsuhiko flew faster than any time before. He was hoping to reach the rooftop in no time- THUNK! What in the world!?! He was so sure the sky had no ceiling!! His momentum broken, Tatsu took a second or two to regain his air balance and then looked up at what he hit. Oh! He recognized one of the riders! It was Shannon’s Kamiko!! “Kamiko!!!!” The little summon wailed and practically dived into the young woman’s arms. “Help! Help! They’re down there!!” He immediately announced as he wriggled around.
“It’s…” Marianne grappled to find the right words. “If you can think of a way to keep them here, then that would help a lot.” She was definitely acting against orders now. Hopefully, Vanessa and Jules’ conversation won’t end soon or else she would be heard. She didn’t care much about the other names; there were only two she was interested in.
“It’s definitely something you wouldn’t like to know.” The mage answered. “All that I can say is that we’ve been ordered to arrest a few individuals.” It was considerably easier than last night’s arrest order but for Marianne, she actually preferred last night’s events than this one. “And I’m pretty sure it’s on false charges.” The mage growled. "Damn it!" She couldn't help but curse. That's all that she could do really.
