It wasn’t dissatisfaction that Tesni felt when Camelot saved Tsubasa… that simple emotion couldn’t encompass this. It was a cavalcade of annoyance, frustration, a hint of joy as the Pageless scattered at the impact of her attack and a flutter of excitement when Camelot screamed out “Dynasty Queen”
It’s funny, everyone called her Dynasty Queen, but she never called herself that, even in her own head she never referred to herself as Dynasty Queen... did people really see her actions as those of a different person when she was in magical girl garb? Whatever the crackling of magical energy behind her was more important than some hero upset at her. It was as if she could see it, as if she were graffitiing the battlefield, disrupting their rhythm. She would swing her staff in an arc behind her, shrinking it as she did to limit collateral damage… and conveniently threaten the hands brimming with the beginings of a spell with pure blunt force trauma, then she would follow the momentum and leap up before following up with another swing down into the Pageless horde once more…
Then as she was about to retract her staff and spin… Tsubasa and that condescending tone of voice rung in her ear, absolutely ruining her mood. Saying that she had made a mistake, really? How? Normally she would ignore Tsubasa's words and continue with her assault, but Chinami acting as Tsubasa's shield would no doubt prevent that. So Tesni figured she would have to buy time with words and reposition herself, change the battlefield to her advantage if possible and if not possible, disrupt their formation.
“Lady… it’s bold of you to assume I never repeat mistakes. Especially when I don’t like a person and the mistake pisses them off, but fine. Please, please enlighten me. Why should I trust an enigmatic lady that the Pageless who we all have been let’s tactfully say ‘destroying’ are flocking to and seemingly obeying? Please give a good reason why any of us should take your words as anything more than a fart in the wind?” As if trying to prove her words true in some way, the Pageless ran from her and fled behind Tsubasa and her familiars.
“These better be the most convincing words of your fucking life, because right now, you’re looking like the General at the head of an army.” Slowly walking to keep both Tsubasa and the familiars in her field of vision, moving herself so all potential threats were in front of her. Tesni turned her eyes to the heroic armour-clad magical girl Tesni gave her the steeliest gaze she could manage.
“Chinami… how long are you going to stand there with your thumb up your ass? Do you believe that even for a second, she needed your help? I think I'm going to have to spell this out for you, since you got the heroics of King of Camelot and not the battlefield wisdom. If Miss Enigmatic blocked my attack, she would be protecting Pageless therefore she would be an enemy. Are you following so far? I hope so, because it's not difficult." Tesni couldn't afford to give Chinami the benefit of her full attention, not now anyway, so her vision began to roam the battlefield and her fingers rapped along her staff, daring anyone to make a move, as if looking for an excuse.
"If she had have dodged, on her own without someone swooping in to be a knight in shining armour, she would not be protecting Pageless therefore trustworthy enough to not be an immediate concern. It’s a simple equation. Now you have complicated things slightly, but even if you think Miss Enigmatic is not an enemy, right now she’s not a friend! So, until you can say for certain that she will cause no harm, would you please get your ass over here?!”
