Turning, Alicia couldn't help but frown as she was verbally assaulted by some girl dressed up like a stereotypical gumshoe detective. Maybe it was just the way that she was talking or the way she acted and carried herself, but Alicia couldn't help but find herself a bit offended by the accusations, and the general attitude. Just who did she think she was, making demands like this? Sure, Summer had messed up, but in the face of external pressure she found herself coming to the defense of her subordinate. She certainly wasn't going to 'discipline' her, or bend to this will simple because they could talk fast.
"Of course not. I'm sure she'll take us back when she can. But as you can see we're a bit preoccupied at the moment so have some patience," she responded with a glare. More people could carry the virtue she had chosen to uphold, in her opinion.
Fortunately they had a stroke of luck, the scary looking being chasing after the departing witches rather than engaging those in the cathedral. She breathed a sigh of relief, since she really hadn't been looking forward to fighting that thing while civilians were around. Not only that, but the witch carried out its end of the deal, returning the girls who had been transformed to their normal states. With Summer sending them back to the real world, it seemed like a successful conclusion all around.
"No," she replied to the question from the priest, shaking her head. "Beacon is the group that I serve with, whose purpose is to serve as a guiding light for the rest of mankind,an example of what they can be at their best. Even if we aren't appreciated by most." Not that she wanted to grumble, but in recent months it seemed like the truth.
Once asked by the witch, Alicia turned to face them as she lifted Star Seraph, aiming it towards the duo for a moment before nodding. "My word is my word. Get out of here as fast as you can. If I catch you again, don't expect to find yourselves as fortunate as you are now." Alicia could have put them down, but she didn't want to have to worry about that when she had other things to do.
She made sure she left before turning to the rest of her team, flashing them a smile and a nod of approval. "Good job guys." They'd talk about certain things back at HQ, but for now she wasn't going to embarrass them like that in front of the general populace and other magical girls. Speaking of which....
Assuming the detective hadn't run off yet, she would find herself confronted by the Beacon member, hands resting on her hips in annoyance. "So who's this crime lord you're after and what have they done?" If she was going to get chewed out by some egotistical magical girl for an accident, then she wanted to know the reason for it. Though she had the sneaking suspicion that she wouldn't get the time of day at the pace the other girl was going. What a headache.
