Eve stormed through wall after wall until the waters stopped opening up to her and the hunter girl barreled down an alleyway all while dragging Elina with the strength of five men. Practically carrying her newly made friend until her body dried up taking her strength with it and the seas truly abandoned them, forcing the girl to put Elina down and slow down dramatically panting and wheezing now. The idea of something from the Sunken World coming up and walking around terrified something to her very core filling the entirety of her being with dread. For now, at least it seemed the danger had passed and their pursuer gave up for now, but that didn’t stop Eve’s charge down the alleyway to give to the main road no way could she go back to sleeping under the bridge to be an open target. Elsewhere, a barrier mage who strolled down the opposite end of that very same alleyway getting ready to ensnare a nightmare was taken by surprise when a wild looking female killed it without so much as a second though teeth biting through it like hot knives into butter. “E-Eve?!”
Soma yelled in shock“Soma, Help!”
The two of them came back up to the 'surface' of the real world again both mostly drenched. Luckily for Elina that her clothes were quite thick so there was no way of seeing through them when drenched. They did feel a tad heavy from the water. Eve somewhat carried her over the street towards a nearby alleyway. Eve put her down on the ground as she had to take a short breather from using so much power. Elina patted her back making sure she was okay before drying her off from the cold water if she wanted with her own hellish power. Elina used it on her own as well before she turned back to her former form. She took a deep breath before turning to Eve.
"I think we lost her."
Eve still scared from the scenario just now decided to continue trying to run away from the woman. Elina hurried after her thinking she must have had her reasons. It was not untill later that they were swiftly met by a nightmare that Eve just bit in half just like that. Elina somewhat shockingly stammered backwards. Eve could be a beast sometimes.
Behind it was another blonde hair female just like Eve. It was immediatly clear that the two of them knew each other already.
"Soma? You know this girl Eve?"“Y-yeah, she’s my older sister”
Soma explained tilting her head to the side, it was unlike Eve to have a friend or company and almost immediately without further introduction the girl began shouting about queer thoughts and things she smelled. From some creature or was it a woman the entire situation just puzzled Soma the way her elder sibling made it seem was that the two were attacked by some creature that smelled like her own magic which was strange to be sure. Anyone not used to her ramblings wouldn’t have gotten anything out of it but the cacophony of panic and fear a truly strange sight to anyone used to seeing Eve in her natural state. “Calm down Eve here, let me talk to Evelune”
Soma suggested clapping her hands ensnaring her sister in a shield away from the ground separating her body from the Sunken World.
The change took time to take place, but eventually, the caged ruthless girl started breaking down, throwing her body around like a woman possessed screaming in madness “It’s coming!”
the voice screamed, slamming her body against the walls of the shield, thankfully she wasn’t wet, normally it would be much harder to keep her caged. “Yog-Sothoth will bring them here from the depths and the deep ones with rule!”
she continued to scream. That name was an odd string of letters that just didn’t feel right, surely it was English, but those letters arranged in that way felt blasphemous down to her very soul.
A chill ran up Soma’s spine, causing her to release Eve from the cage returning the girl to normal “See?”
the wild child asked, completely unsure of the exchange that went through between her sister and whatever lived deep within her subconscious. “Umm, yeah… look both of you come back to my place for the night, whatever is after you might check where you live”
The new girl Soma did look somewhat confused by the presence of Elina. Much like Eve never had company with her, Elina expected at least.
"O-oh, nice to meet you. I'm sort of Eve her p-partner..."
Elina scratched her chin while looking off to the side quite awkwardly. Elina felt somewhat troubled by that fact for some reason after Eve had acted this way. As soon as Elina was introduced to Soma Eve continue with her odd behavior by yelling out thoughts and things she smelled which was definitly not a normal thing to do. Maybe she was excited to see her sister or something?
"I-is she alright? Normally she d-doesn't react t-this way."
Soma told Eve to calm down as well and nonchalantly locked her in some sort of force field making Eve hover over the ground. Elina even more awkwardly stepped away as she tried to ignore the situation as much as possible. She knew it wasn't normal for herself but maybe it was very ordinary for the sisters to be deactivating Eve her magical form like this. When Eve was transitioning Elina had decided to en-light Soma with the situation.
"L-look Soma-san, t-there was a woman that chased us and tried to hurt us inside Eve her dimension thing. We d-don't know what happened to her but we think she left."
The transformation of old Eve began, you could visibly see that Eve and her magical form were pulled apart. It was somewhat special that something like this was possible but Elina did not question it any longer just to keep her own sanity in tact. Eve yelled and screamed as she turned back and in the end the old girl Elina knew was back on her feet again. Elina scarcely helped the wild girl get up gently patting her back as she did.
"A-are you alright now E-eve?"
Elina gave an unsure stare towards the little sister of the wild one as she told the two to stay the night at her place. Elina thought she right but still wasn't sure what was up with these two at all. Elina gave a small nod at Soma not seeming entirely trusted by her yet. As they began walking towards Soma her place Elina brought up a question that had risen from her thoughts.
"S-say Soma-san, why doesn't Eve live with you if you are s-sisters and all..."“Me and my sister prefer our own space, but we’re family and we’ll always be there for one another”
Soma explained leading the two to the ghost house.
