Help the Humans Escape
Yuri had arrived at the bakery before the others had, and he left his Monarch to handle the confections that attacked the city. When he arrived at the bakery, he noticed the windows covered in thick layers of frosting. His initial thought was that no one could possibly be inside, but when he heard the captive scream out as if they knew he was there, his mission became one of extraction rather than destruction. Elegantly he moved to find the perfect infiltration spot. He had to be stealthy as to not draw attention that he was there. The muffin men seemed preoccupied with the Monarchs that swooped down and crushed them before swooping away.
He noticed something out of the corner of his eye and turned his head. A rather odd-looking female with what looked to be a weirdly designed dress had stepped out of the bakery to make her presence known. Yuri watched as she performed spectacular feats of sugary mastery by upgrading her army of Muffin Men to now carry exploding imploding Soufflé. He watched in surprise as the Soufflé consumed the shadows that belonged to his rival Lorenzo. The woman seemed to ooze some sort of chocolate sauce from her mouth and it was disturbing to watch. If that weren't disturbing enough, her laugh could disrupt the spiritual peace of anyone who could hear it, and Yuri was no exception. He watched as a few of his Monarchs came crashing to the ground, covered in the sticky web. They burst into flame.
Without hesitation, Yuri flipped elegantly off of the roof of the bakery where he'd been observing everything and proceeded to slash the door of the bakery open with the power of his fan. The sickle energy struck the door, but instead of the door exploding inward, it shot outward towards Yuri who deflected it with a quick twist of his wrist. The door slid to the side as the captive humans stood in awe at first, not knowing if Yuri was a friend or foe.
"Quickly, this way," Yuri said ushering them to get out while they could. The Duchess of Confections would soon return but without any captives. The humans ran away from the bakery, putting as much distance as they could between them and their old prison.
