Haven’s group had rejoined the rest of the team, Casey jumping off the board while Haven moved closer to Callie. “Hey Callie, how are you holding up?” He asked, trying to make his skittish sister a little more comfortable. This little adventure seemed fun, but now they were dealing with death, something that affects Callie’s senses more than him or Martha’s.
Meanwhile, Casey listened to the explanation and nodded her head. “So it’s someone not from this island. Do you know if there are people with these feet on any nearby islands?” She asked the lizard in charge. Perhaps someone else had come here similar to them, but it was still good to rule out any nearby tribes before expanding out to the entire world’s population for suspects.
Walking next to Akabane and Daisuke, Sid casually looked around the scene. “Sooo...four toes, huh? So the person was barefoot I guess. Or wearing one of those plastic shoes.” Sid mused. “You dudes know of any criminal who had one of their toes cut off?” He asked, trying to let the others with more detective knowledge solve this case. He was here to kick stuff and have fun, and this kind of stuff wasn’t in his wheelhouse.
"This is a surprisingly spacious board. I have to wonder where you got it." Aimi commented now that Casey climbed aboard. Though it still wasn't quite spacious enough to prevent Aimi's floofy tail from ticking Casey's nose.
They got out of the treeline just to see the rest of the party leaving the beach and going back into it. "Oh, they must have found something, too! After them!" Aimi propped up on her toes to lean over Haven and point commandingly. --- "So we now have physical confirmation to go alongside out speculation. Something else is or was here. But the track doesn't tell me much about who or what it is." Another species resembling animals, sure. But there were plenty of animals with four toes.
"Maybe it's a kobold!" Leslie suggested. "Or a gnoll!" Those were the only mystical humanoid species she could think of on the spot so she might well have been far off.
"Indeed, those aren't impossible." Maya smiled at her encouragingly. "But I don't think we can confirm or deny those just yet, unless someone is familiar with their habits?"
"I don't..." Leslie said, wishing she'd paid more attention in class. Then she looked at the group that joined back up with them. "Oh, maybe it's a fox person, too. They have 4 toes. Do you think it could be one?" She asked Aimi.
"A fox person? I don't know. It's certainly not a kitsune like myself. But a humanoid with foxy features, maybe. There are many species of such creatures around."
"We could speculate wildly until the sun sets and rises thrice more." Maya interrupted. "We need to look elsewhere for more info. Is there anyone here who could track this print?"
“Plastic?” Scalag tilted his head. The word didn’t translate. “Shoes?” That one didn’t either. Was that all one word? “Shoes are garments, as alien to your kind as any other it appears.” Eustace explained. “Plastic is an inferior but inexpensive material used for various goods.” Those words weren’t translating either, so Scalag didn’t push the issue. It seemed that these were things that he simply had no words for. The concepts were just too alien. “Hold on, Scalag said it doesn’t look like anything on this on the island. That’s really weird, right? He’d know.”
“I would. A lizardfolk must learn all tracks to effectively hunt and survive on this island. As such, yes, I likely could track these prints, should we stay here instead of searching the island.” Scalag nodded. “It could be somebody from the dragon island, or a monster in their command. If the raiders came by boat, it could have been them. But things still seem strange.” “...hey Haven, Callie, team chat.” Martha said, waving to her sisters and gathering them in a huddle.
“I think we’re gonna be checking out the other island, but I know you really hate water and that’s gonna be a boat ride. There’s stuff to look at here, like the spirits and maybe these footprints, so I think we should suggest we split up and you can stay here. Does that sound okay?” Not far away, Eustace wasn’t so concerned with others. “It seems likely that they are to blame. You claimed they were savages by your standards, so aggression is likely enough reason for them to do this. You, girl, make a boat." He pointed at Haven. "If you are incapable, somebody begin to gather wood. You, fast one, get on it." He commanded, pointing at Martha. She glared, but didn't move from her group huddle.
"Eh, this is not telling us enough, or anything at all. We are gonna have to make the stupid boat and go after it"-Daisuke told Sid, already examining some trees.
"Well that's a shame, we could have used the heli that girl came in!"-Akabane pointed at Casey, to which daisuke just brushed it off
"Don't worry too much about it, I might be the black sheep of the Yoshihara, but I'm still a craftsman at heart. a boat should be easy enough. now, why don't you cut down some of those trees for me"
Daisuke then turned around and looked at Sid.
"If you aren't looking for clues, i'm fixin to build a boat here. go get me some fibers, we need them to make rope"
Before even starting, he paused once more and walked all the way toawrds Eustace and the dolls, Akabane followed right along. As Daisuke set his hand on Eustace's shoulder, he moved past him.
"Hey, I got this, dude, I'll make the boat. Now what was I gonna say...oh yeah, thanks lass, you really saved my skin back there."
"I um...think splitting is a bad idea" - Callie replied, not exactly in a powerful voice, but perhaps audible if Martha was listening. when Dasisuke and Akabane arrived, she nearly ran for it, but she was quickly thanked by Daisuke, to which Callie simply nodded.
"Pretty good job, Callie! have I told you that's a pretty name?"-Akabane said as she extended her hand towards the doll. Callie shyly took it while blushing and let go after a somewhat uncomfortable ammount of time.
"Um, right...So what are you guys doing? are you not coming? I'm sure Daisuke is making a boat big enough for all of us (oi...)"
Haven excused himself to join the group huddle with Martha and Callie, listening to the muscular doll and nodding his head. But before he could respond, he was called out by a strange man who had berated Martha before. He narrowed his eyes at the man, staring at him over his purple-tinted sunglasses.
“I guess you never learned how to say please?” Haven snipped, waving his hand and summoning a long neon purple platform with raised sides to keep the contents in. “But yes, I can make a boat. But I kinda want to see what you can make, chief.” Haven gave a wave at Daisuke, Sid having already returned with a bundle of plant fibers he had simply taken off the ground. “Here you go, dude.” Sid said, plopping them down onto the ground. While they worked, Haven turned back to his sisters and lowered his voice.
“If you’re not comfortable splitting up, perhaps I can stay here with you? Martha could probably run away from anything dangerous, even across the water! And I probably won’t even need to use mana on a boat.” He stated, making his voice audible again as he addressed Akabane. “We do have some tracks here, so my sisters and I are deciding the best thing to do. We don’t need this giant group doing everything at once, you know?” He joked, flicking his finger and sending the boat further across the sand, halfway in the water now.
Meanwhile, Casey largely stood by, looking at everyone nearby. Seeing that people were discussing how to get a boat, she decided to wander over to an interesting-looking fox person and stop next to the seamstress. “Hey there! I’m Casey, I’m sure you saw my grand introduction a little while ago.” She said in a joking tone. “Any chance you can like, track these footprints? Or should I just shift gears into complementing that hair?” She asked, motioning to Aimi’s head and showing off her own.
"Ah, we're going to explore the other islands? In that case, let's split up, gang!" Maya always wanted to say that! But usually, she'd be working alone or with police officers and she thought they wouldn't appreciate her love of Scooby Doo. "Ah, wait, I probably said that too early. We need a boat and to figure out who's going where..." She murmured.
Meanwhile, Leslie heard that weird asshole guy being an asshole again. Compared to everyone else, he seemed like the biggest creep here, so who gave him the right to order them around! "If you're so capable, why don't you make it yourself!" The weirdo that came with the white-haired girl seemed to be more of a peacekeeper though and he offered to make the boat himself.
"W-well, he should still help you! I'll even do a coin toss with him! If I win, he has to help you, if he wins, I'll help out!" She wasn't exactly enthusiastic about working on the boat, but she trusted her luck would get her through it as always!
Nearby, Aimi was approached by the idol she just shared a board with. It seemed she didn't mind being tickled under her nose earlier, or maybe she didn't even notice it. Weird. She certainly had good taste though. "Oh, darling, you can compliment me regardless. But we foxes don't rely on sight for hunting. Our noses are way better for that. I couldn't smell anything when I tried a while ago though. Still, now I can smell your sweet perfume. Chanel, if I'm not mistaken? Maybe that means I'd have better luck now."
“Not splitting up the family, obviously. We’ll stick with you. Hold up, looks like stuff’s happening.” Martha backed out of her chat with Callie. “Need some wood, guy?” Martha asked, not waiting for an answer before she became a blur. A couple seconds and a lot of noise later, she was back, tottering under the weight of the wood she held, mostly consisting of trees she had kicked over. She dropped the pile at his feet and gave him a thumb’s up.
She took interest when Leslie took the fight to Eustace. She had been working on ignoring him, but if a kid was getting involved, she would have to take her side. “Do I look like a carpenter?” Eustace huffed. “I’m not here to indulge in gambling. Find something else to do while I ascertain who should travel with which party.” “You aren’t… ass-certaining anything! People will go where they want!” She said. “Everybody will just go with their friends if you let them pick. We need to ensure actual efficiency.” “People work best with their friends, dumbass! Maybe you don’t know that cause you don’t have any!”
Martha and Eustace continued to argue while Aimi sniffed around the footprints. The scents were odd here. Mixed in with the natural smells of plants and animals, there was something unmistakably unnatural. The footprints smelled like plastic. The smell was coming very faintly from the few hairs Aimi would find caught in the thorns just a little ways up the hill. If she dug closer looking for more evidence, she would find it; near the fur were three little holes in the soft dirt, evenly spaced. It wasn’t clear what they were, but it was clear enough that something else strange was happening on the island.
"See? this girl gets it, works fast too. just one sec!"- Daisuke thanked Martha and Akabane pulled one of her guns out of her holster, with one swift movement she sliced the trunks into fine planks
"How do you even do that with a gun?"-Daisuked looked at the planks slightly baffled.
"Like your stuff is any more credible"-Akabane replied as she holstered it back. At that moment, Daisuke began to work on the boat at lightning pace. Akabane began to talk to Jane while her partner finished everything up
"Well if you want, you could all come with us, you guys seem reliable enough!"
"There, all done. Not bad for the time and resources at hand"- Daisuke said as he pointed at the boat, which looked like a solid middle size vessel
"Hey, not half bad, wait it has an engine?! How?"- Akabane said as she looked at the back of it, for a moment she was thoroughly impressed, then frowned upon closer inspection
"Are you trying to get us killed? you bolted space oddity to the back of the boat!"
"Chill! It's all under control, made some tweaks to the rocket systems, i'm sure it will sail smoothly. crazy fast too."
“Oooooo.” Casey sang, surprised at Aimi’s nose. “Spot on, actually! Maybe it’ll help you pick up some other scents.” Truthfully, Casey had no idea how that’d work. But she followed Aimi during her investigation. When they came upon the three holes, Casey began to look at it. “A triangle...OH!” Her eyes lit up with excitement. “Maybe it was a tripod? See, that’s where the legs would have been.” She pointed to them. “I’ve seen plenty in my time, so I recognize the shape. What do you think?”
Seeing the situation between Martha, Leslie and Eustace, Haven walked over and tried to put his hands between them. “Now now, let’s hold on a second. I do plan to stay with my sisters, but we should all have a say on the teams. So can we work together please?” He asked, trying to diffuse the situation.
Meanwhile, Sid was paying attention to how fast Daisuke had made the boat. “Whoa, you a wizard, dude?” He asked, tapping the boat with his boot. “But you said something about a rocket? Doesn’t that seem kinda overkill? Unless you want us all sent into the stratosphere.” He joked, seeing what teams would be made for this group.
"Ooh, a tripod could explain the plastic-y smell. Good thinking, little songbird." Aimi complimented Casey. "So does that mean someone was recording the whole scene?" she sniffed around some more, trying to discern if the person was here recently or if the smell was faint enough they were only around during the eggsnatching.
Meanwhile, Leslie was cheering on Martha. "Yeah, you tell him!" But Haven walked in to try and diffuse the situation. If they were splitting up into groups, she knew one thing for sure "I'm not going with him, that's for sure!" Leslie pointed at Eustace dramatically.
Nearby, Maya observed Daisuke's work. "Wow, this masterful craftsmanship considering the circumstances. And... Is that your sword on the end? I imagine you made that yourself, as well?" She wasn't sure why a sword would have rockets attached to it, but from his general vibe, she got the feeling he just thought it was cool. And he was a musashi warrior, so he must have had some practice with such nonstandard weaponry.
“No.” Klazil muttered as he realized where he was going. His crest was up and his tail was low. “No, no, no…” “Frightened of the island?” Eustace asked. “Yes. The blood of the dragon has made them cruel. If we anger them they will wear our skins.” Klazil whimpered. “Hm. Anything else?” “I don’t understand.” “Well surely you know more stories of horrible things they do. Ah well, I’ll come up with them.” Eustace sketched ideas down in his notebook. “I still don’t understand. Why do you want to know something horrible?”
“It’s good inspiration. Gore and pain, they sell more than anything. People back in civilized lands love a taste of the savage.” Eustace frowned at Klazil’s clear confusion and fear. “Look, I’ve lived nearly two centuries, I don’t plan on being killed by some lizards. We’ll handle these brutes in short order and get your eggs back, don’t you worry. Gentleman’s promise.” Eustace had never been a gentleman, but the moderns didn’t need to know that. “That makes me feel better. You seem like fearsome warriors.” Klazil nodded. “We should move. Day does not last forever.”
“We shouldn’t let Eustace go with poor Klazil all alone. But I need to stay with Callie, so I’m staying here.” Martha shrugged. “Oh, I got one. Leg guy!” She waved to Sid. “Hey leg guy, you look like you’re fast like me. If something went wrong on the island, could you run over the water back here?” She smiled up at him, proud of her good idea.
“I mean, maybe. But who would record something sick like that massacre…?” Casey’s face scrunched up in disgust. Over by the others, Sid looked over to see that Martha was waving at him. He glanced out toward the sea, and shrugged his shoulders. “Sure. Running across water is pretty simple long as it’s not like, some crazy distance. Why?” He asked, looking at the doll.
Haven nodded his head. “Well, I plan to stay with my sisters as well. So he should go with Eustace and our lizard friend.” He suggested. “And I suppose we will have myself, my sisters, Leslie, and whomever else would like to join our merry little band.” Haven gave a dramatic hair toss, getting it out of his sunglasses and adjusting them. Casey piped up from the back. “I honestly don’t care where I end up, so if nobody says anything, I’ll just help whatever team needs it!”
"Relax pal! If I say it's under control, it is! Also, don't worry about the lizardman, I'll take one for the team and go with Eustace, maybe pop girl over there will also get to join me"-He told sid and the dolls.
Akabane sighed but ultimately smiled.
"Well there you go. I guess we will split, I'll go with the dolls, you go with the rest. Any objection, ladies?"- She told the dolls, to which Callie simply shook her head.
"Running across the water?" Maya asked. "That sounds like a fun ability to have. It means we can reinforce each other if either group needs help. But you're both forgetting something, aren't you?" She pulled out her phone. "We should share our phone numbers so we can communicate if we need to."
Nearby, Leslie was just glad she didn't have to go with the asshole, especially not to the spooky ghost island. Plus, she got to be with the cool blue-haired girl. She stood up to Eustace, so she must have been trustworthy. And she trusted her sisters, so they were probably cool, too. "Alright, I don't mind being in the group with... Um... What's your name again?" She asked Martha.
Aimi shrugged her shoulders at Casey's question. "Humans are weird. I'm sure someone would buy a violent recording. Or maybe they plan to use it for blackmail somehow." Meanwhile, the groups were being split up. Casey didn't care what team she was going with, so Aimi linked her arm with Casey's and said "In that case, the two of us should go to the ghost island. We've got experience exterminating the ghosts already." She was referring to the ghost they destroyed at the tree. If there were more creatures like that, Aimi's spiritual flames should come in really handy.
“You can run back over here if anything goes wrong!” Martha exclaimed to Sid. “We’ve got a plan then!” “Come on, we don’t have all day, those who are going, go!” Eustace kicked Daisuke’s boat into the water and jumped aboard. “I don’t think he wants to share phone numbers…” Martha looked at him and shrugged. She quickly gave Maya the numbers of all the dolls present and waved her off as the boat floated out of the little inlet, Klazil nervously perched at the fore.
The group left behind was now left with a strange environment to work with, now minus their guide. They had also lost the sniffer who had found the smells on the prints, leaving them blind in that sense as well. Luckily, it seemed they hadn’t made much of an attempt to hide their tracks. Just down the hill, there was more mud, and more prints within it. There were no more monstrous tracks. Instead, there were boot treads imprinted in the ground, more or less visible along a clear path. They didn’t go far, but taken slowly, there were snapped twigs and partial prints aplenty to follow.
Out in the ocean, there was a similar period of quiet during travel. As they approached the other island, there was a distinctly ominous presence. Waves of hot mist rose off the water, thicker and hotter as they got closer. “The dragon’s fire heats the water… there are monsters that live in the hot water.” Klazil nervously mumbled to the group, head crests sticking straight up. His head darted every direction, but at no angle could he see the water. “I’m sure the noise of the engine will keep the balmy beasts at bay.” Eustace chuckled, tugging on Klazil’s tail. “Sit down, man, you’re rocking the boat.” Klazil only jumped and became more nervous at the unexpected contact. Eustace didn’t know how close he had come to getting bitten, Klazil staring down and opening his mouth as wide as it went, showing off a good dozen knife-like little teeth in each jaw.
"Well, off you go, Daisuke, don't go dying out there alright? I'm keeping your share if you do"-Akabane told her partner as she winked at him. Daisuke shook his head and hopped on the boat as well.
It wasn't long before Daisuke's party began to make trouble, he sighed and called out both.
"knock it off already both of you, do sit down though, I wanna kick this boat into gear"-He told Klazil as he revved the sword grip much like a motorcyle handle. the boat began to accelerate as his sword began to make odd noises
"Eh, It probably won't blow up" He stated as he cranked up even more speed.
Meanwhile on land, Akabane was following the trail right at the front, Callie held Haven's hand. To Akabane, things were just getting more and more weird, what happened to the previous footprints?
"So um, I think I don't need to say this, but we have to catch anyone who looks suspicious, especially if they aren't lizards. Just don't try to go soft on them, alright? understimating our opponents might get us killed"
Akabane was quite aware of her surroundings, and so was her blade. It never talked to others, but she could always hear it loud and clear.
Casey was taken aback by Aimi suddenly linking arms with her, but shrugged and went along with it anyway. “Sure, let’s exchange numbers. I’m sure we’ll find out what these ghosts are before the sun goes down!” Casey said optimistically. Sid, meanwhile, hopped into the boat along with everyone else and took off toward the other island.
When he heard Klazil mention dragons warming the sea, Sid couldn’t help but lower an eyebrow in confusion. How could a dragon heat this much water if he couldn’t even see it? And what sorts of creatures were in these waters? However, he didn’t get the chance to speak, as Eustace decided to grab their guide’s tail and nearly get bit for it. Casey frowned and pointed at the Victorian.
“Ok, yeah! Knock it off right now! I don’t feel like seeing someone get their head bitten off for being an inconsiderate jerk!” Casey declared, eyeing the two involved. Daisuke then decided to gun the engine, forcing her to hang onto the side of the boat. Sid looked over at the idol, who was clearly unhappy this wind was messing up her hair. “Wow, you told them. Think you can gel with this team?” Sid asked.
Casey looked over at the martial artist and rolled her eyes. “I have dealt with far more pig-headed people than this in the industry. You just need to have some social skills, and know when to break up a dumb argument, thank you very much.” And with that, Casey confidently looked up, keeping her head lowered to keep the wind out of her eyes as they sped along.
Haven followed Akabane, holding Callie’s hand reassuringly. “Don’t worry, I’m sure we’ll find who did this. You already protected us from them once, right?” Haven gave Callie a confident smile. He heard Akabane’s warning and nodded his head. “Don’t worry, we know we aren’t dealing with easy people. But I think we have a pretty neat team with us.” He motioned toward the group.
“So, Akabane was it? What sorts of fun stuff can you do? Looks like your friend’s big into guns, and well,” Haven snapped his fingers, summoning a neon purple puppy into his arms. “-I can make stuff. So how about you?” He asked, making the ‘dog’ open its mouth while he made an impression of its bark with his mouth.
Leslie followed behind Martha, or at least she tried, but she found herself struggling to keep pace even though Martha didn't seem to be moving faster than walking pace. She was definitely faster than she seemed. The group soon ran across bootprints in some mud. "Wait, boots? So there really are other people around here. But wait, does that mean the monster prints we saw earlier were fakes or something?"
"Eh? Monsters in the water?" Aimi looked over the side, curious if she could see anything. But the steamy waters were too hard to peer into. But now she was really curious what they looked like, and if they tasted good or not.
"Ah, I sure would like to see one of those. I wonder if there are any brave boys around who'd help a girl out. There might even be a reward in it for them." She said, adjusting her top seductively while looking at Sid and Daisuke. They seemed like they would be either easy marks or too dumb to notice, and she sure hoped it was the former.
Maya meanwhile was doing her best to stay in the rocking boat. She could feel herself getting sea sick, but if there were monsters in the water, she didn't want to attract them, especially not in a disgusting manner like that. The best she could do was try to distract herself with conversation.
"So, ulp, Klazil, have you ever seen any of these sea monsters. Or are they just stories your shamans share?"
“Wait, do you want to not go soft on them or catch them? Cause I think most of us could totally kill people if we don’t hold back a little.” Martha asked Akabane for clarity. “Fakes? Who would put fake monster footprints out here? Wait, that girl said that there was a camera, what if-oh hey the trail stopped.” Martha was right. The tracks led into a large damp space with no trees, then simply stopped. The entire space was formed of pale mud, with puddles of standing water scattered here and there.
The mosquitos and other biting bugs swarmed especially thick around the puddles, and Martha’s hands became a blur as she swatted them away. “Hm… oh hey, there’s more over there!” She pointed and rushed out to check on more tracks on the other side of the muddy field, but only made it a few steps over the mud before she found her feet sticking. She pulled harder and lost a shoe, putting her foot down too hard and finding herself sunk up to her knee. “Ewwww!” She groaned, pulling as hard as she could. She only sank further, and quickly she realized there was something wrong here. “Uh hey… I might need some help.”
“Head bitten off?” Eustace turned and scowled at Klazil. “Oh sit down. You can’t kill me.” He glared until Klazil, cowed by Eustace and Casey, closed his mouth and stepped back. “In such poor visibility, maybe-” Eustace didn’t have time to finish his thought before the boat truly took off, blasting across the water at breakneck speeds. Klazil made an awkward croak when he was thrown flat.
The fog became a whipping tide of clouds around them as they erupted forth, moving so fast that they skipped across the water’s surface. Then they came down on something that wasn’t water. The boat violently spun and bounced, each crash tearing chunks off of it. With a horrific noise of rending, the boat split down the middle and its riders were thrown onto a beach of sharp black stone. Eustace rolled to a stop and shut his eyes tight, focusing on blocking out the pain. The ground beneath him was pleasantly warm, like stone that had been soaking up the sun all day, only to gently release it in the cool evening. He focused on that until he had tuned out enough agony to open his eyes and sit up.
The damage wasn’t as extensive as he had thought, really, mostly surface level. The sharp rocks had ripped up parts of his safari outfit, and the wounds were more ugly and painful than actually life-threatening. Drapes of skin were peeled back, combined with a few longer, shallow cuts. Squinting until he could just barely see from one eye, he summoned up his sword and cut away the loose skin, lest it catch on something and cause him further hurt. God, why couldn’t immortality have come with a resistance to pain!? He stifled it this time by looking to the ground and trying to study it. Scenery. Mark it down. Write about it. It took only a few seconds for him to find the most interesting thing about it. What he had thought were rocks very clearly were not. They were neat, intricate rows of scales. They were on the deceased dragon. “Are the rest of you alive?” He called out, replacing sword with scythe to use as a lever for standing.
"Well, i'm a gunslinger too, so that's that,just a couple of rebels in the Musashi, guess that's the reason they paired us together. interesting ability by the way, I'm sure that is gonna be quite handy"-Akabane told Haven as she showed her the pair of holstered guns she was carrying. it was barely a half truth, but Akabane would not trust a doll right away with that kind of intel.
Musashi then stopped to explain further to Martha, who apparently did not understand what she wanted.
"I mean to say it's better for us to not try to hold back. you saw what the enemy did to the locals. You, me, or your sisters could be next, do you really want to live knowing you could have saved them?"-Akabane told Martha while she pointed at Callie, who hid behind Haven almost immediately.
"we can do our best to try and capture them, but if I kill them, so be it. I plan to get out of this island alive"
Akabane gave sincere advice, talking to Martha made her feel weird, there really was no way around it. even weirder was her asking for help, was she really gonna do something about that?
"Um, I think you are better suited for this one"-She told haven while she moved next to Callie.
"You wait with me, don't want you running off to some death trap like this"-She told Callie which shyly took Akabane's hand.
"D-don't worry, Haven will get you out fast...just don't move"-Callie told Martha from a safe distance.
Daisuke was sent flying as the boat smashed into pieces, Space oddity disappeared as he brought out Los Ageless, he shot it right in front of him and the gun slowed down his momentum. Daisuke fell safely but felt completely dizzy.
"Ugh...I guess that's not the intended use"-Daisuke said as he sat down, trying not to puke, looking at Eustace nearly got him to actually puke though.
"Jeez pal, that's straight out of a horror movie... Sorry everyone! hopefully y'all are still kicking, i didn't account for the terrain"
Daisuke admitted , wether the rest were fine or not, his attention was completely shifted to the terrain...
