Still without internet. Looks like it’ll be that way until we move and I still don’t know when that’ll be.. love you guys, and thanks to everyone still following me.
My internet’s been shut off because we couldn’t pay them an extra 50 dollars, so until further notice you probably won’t see me that often. Right now I’m only on because I’m connected to my neighbors wifi, but that rarely reached down here for long enough for me to actually get anything done.
I need sleep. Can’t stay up any longer x.x
Anyway I have two prompts in my ask that I’ll get to later, but idk if I can write the one. I just have no muse for Graves lately. Maybe watching the movie again later will help. HOPEFULLY I’ll still have internet by tonight. Wish me luck.
Fuck this damn hard to run in cloak, fuck leather and god damn it fuck running. Axel was fit, but running at the speed he was running, in a leather cloak no less, well, it was a little difficult.
A yelp of pain escaped his lips as he felt a burning pain in his leg, which sent him to the ground. Looking down, he noticed the knife lodged in his calf. Realizing he’d be as good as dead if he didn’t get going again, he yanked the knife out of the muscle, a grunt escaping him as he did so. He melted the blade, making sure Ami couldn’t use it again before getting up and running again.
He was slower now, the wound in his calf slowing him down a little bit, but that was the least of his worries. He was more worried about how close Ami was getting.
Finally making it to the other side of the fire wall Ami took off after him, seeing the knife on the ground. She pouted slightly as she ran past it. It had been one of her favorites. Ah well, it wasn’t like she didn’t have more.
She was lucky the girl had chosen something light to wear that day, easy to run in. The girl was nothing if not practical. One of the reasons she hadn’t gone insane while waiting. She didn’t try as hard to catch up to him now. She had known the blade had hit him the moment he yelped. Which means she had hit him, probably making it hard for him to keep pace.
"You can’t run from me forever dear. It’s just a matter of time before I catch you." What she would do to him once she caught him, that she would leave to his imagination for now. She couldn’t imagine it would be easy for him, seeing one of his loved ones hurt him. All the more fun for her!
Technically, it shouldn’t burn him, after all, fire was his element. But he’d never actually tested the theory, so for all he knew, it could burn him badly. But he wasn’t going to stick around long enough to find out.
"Well ya see, I’d love to find out, really I would.. But I’m gonna have to politely decline and run for my fucking life." He said almost nervously before stepping backwards, "Gimme a call when you’re not a crazy bitch anymore, kay?" He exclaimed before running again.
"Oh but Axel, you’re forgetting one thing!" She pulled the knife out from the fire and tested it on the tip of her finger. Yeah, it was ready. "Throwing knives is my specialty!" She threw the knife after him, aiming for his leg before looking for a way around the fire. She could go over it, but that would take work. Guess she would just have to go around it then.
There was just enough of a gap in the flames for her to wiggle through by the edge. Perfect. It cost her time to figure out how to get past the flames but she wasn’t worried. It wouldn’t be hard to find him again. Specially if she was smart, which she was.
That was the part that got him. Here he was, a damned fighter and assassin for the Organization, and he was running away. Well that just wouldn’t do. Granted, he wasn’t going to just stop in his tracks and try and fight her, he wasn’t stupid after all, but he could at least slow her down.
"Afraid? Me? Only a little bit.” He mumbled the last part under his breath before holding his hands out and summoning a wall of fire, Ami on one side, and Axel on the other. He wasn’t even sure if it would protect him for long, but damn it, he wasn’t going down without a fight.
The girl pouted slightly, stopping just short of the wall. Damn him and his fire abilities. She crossed her arms over her chest. “Well, looks like you do have some fight in you after all. We’ll take care of that.” Lucky for her that wasn’t the end of her knives. The fire would stop her for a moment, until she found a way around it, but until then.
She twirled one of the knives in her hand, staring at the redhead. “I wonder. Would it hurt more if this knife was red hot before it bit into your skin?” With another smirk she reached out, holding the blade in the fire. “Let’s find out shall we?”
The minute he saw the first knife fly past him, he knew he was in trouble. It wasn’t like he hadn’t been in danger before, but this time it felt different, worse even. He wasn’t sure what the outcome of this would be and a part of him really didn’t want to find out.
Another knife flew past. Closer than the last one, so close he flinched. The knives just kept coming until finally one hit him. Granted, it was barely a scratch, but knowing that if she really wanted, she would have killed him by now, only served to tell him that she was playing. She thought this was a damn game. She was the cat, he was the mouse.
There was no way out.
"What’s the matter Axel? Afraid of a little girl?" She taunted as they ran, slowly gaining distance, closing the gap between the two. Soon she would have him within her reach, and then the real fun would begin. But for now, it was enough to taunt the nobody.
She could tell he was afraid, and that only excited her all the more. She had been waiting for the right moment to take control. A monster waiting just beneath the skin for the perfect moment to take over the girls body. 20 years she had waited, and now that she was finally free, she would have some fun.
