Infinitum, City Streets
Alex and Meihou would have a less than pleasant surprise when their escape was suddenly halted by... something. All of sudden it seemed like an invisible wall cut their extraction route (very likely having one, or the the two of them smashing their face against it), making a dash for freedom all the more hard.
"That's as far as any of you two will get," The source of the invisible wall of crystal revealed herself to be none other than Farris Arran, who had been waiting for anyone who attempted to escape the building, along with a small patrol she managed to gather in the meantime. "You are under arrest for resisting Imperial authority and property damage. Don't try to resist, or I'll be forced to act in self-defense."
After giving her ultimatum, Farris approached the duo, forcing them further against the wall (which was shaped in a semi-spherical shape, to avoid aerial escapes), while the other half a dozen guards pointed weapons at them. In the Royal Guard's hands she had a pair of tome negating handcuffs, like the ones the Imperial forces use to restrain the Librarians and other criminals until they can take more... permanent measures.
Fei's party would find that the word fast wasn't enough to describe the mounts provided by the feline enchanter. The hippogryphs were a true lightning, as fast as a thought once in flight and— probably not to their surprise — Si had tricked them once more. The Phantasmal Beasts didn't needed to be guided by hand, they would follow the mental commands of whoever was holding their reins. That was very convenient, indeed.
The encounter with Titania was not out of the realm of expectancy as well. Si was prepared to get back to action and rendezvous with the main group as soon as they were back in the capital, it was only natural they do so now. "You can take us, then. We may not have much time left," Si said as they got off the hippogryps before she dismissed them back to the ether where they first came from.
"Oneesama, take care!" Linea yelled desperately as the Giga Slime lunged at her sister.
Despite her sister's best efforts, there was only so much room in this sewer for someone to avoid the attacks of a foe as massive as the Giga Slime, obviously Sienna's luck would ran out some time. "Gah!" And so it was that the older of the Aquarian Twins was captured in the filthy mass of the Giga Slime's body, cutting off the frigid air that restrained both the humongous mass of decay and Antonia.
Despite the odds, Sienna's grin was as wide as ever as she turned to her sister and shouted, "I— I'm ok. Get ready to do your part on my signal, Linea. And don't you dare to miss!"
"Oneesama what are yo—"
"God, I know I'll had myself for this later and likely never get a husband, but—" Sienna muttered to herself before taking a deep breath, "It's all or nothing, damn it!" The older twin yelled before diving inside the Giga Slime, intent on getting to its core and defeat the putrid enemy from within.
"So— Sol? What—" Eleonor forced herself to say amid some vigorous coughing as Solanne took her out of Antonia's slimy grasp.
After that much time, even the Crimson Guardian was disoriented, especially while being deprived of her power source. The damage from the previous fights was mostly healed by now, though Eleonor couldn't really be called well, yet. The amount of slime she coughed and the fact that she was stripped of even the least piece to safeguard her modesty should be more than enough proof of that.
At least now, with Eleonor away from Antonia, they could try to end the Fallen Priestess once and for all, right?
