They didn’t get much time to wait for an answer from Obariyon, but considering how slow they’d ended up being they were lucky to have as much as they did. At the sound of the siren, Takemi bolted up the remaining stairs, practically dragging Megumi with her. It seemed like everyone else had already arrived. A rogue yōkai was terrorizing a nearby village, and they were being sent to fight it off. This would really be their first actual
Takemi froze. She liked to think that she knew a thing or two about chasing off yōkai, but really, everything she’d been up against until now must have been low tier to these people, people with actual training. With most of their experienced Mediums on other jobs, Takemi and the others were being shoved into Baptism by Fire. They all knew that something like this would happen sooner or later, but for it to be their first official day as Onmyouji was nothing short of catastrophe. All that broke Takemi out of her daze was the sudden mass that blocked out the sun, growling as it landed: Inugami.
Her hands had started shaking just at the sight of him. Just what sort of people had she gotten herself involved with? She shook her head a little. Now was not the time for questioning them. She’d hesitated long enough already. Questions could wait until their job was done and the people were safe. Even so, she approached Inugami with caution. She bowed, mumbling her thanks to him, before scrambling onto his back, sitting behind Niko. She practically jumped out of her skin when Yuudai smacked Inugami.
“You’re going to get cursed if you do crap like that,” she said.
It didn’t take them long to reach their destination, but she saw the smoke before she saw anything else. The fire itself was massive. Niko was the first one off Inugami’s back, and Takemi rushed after her. ‘Secure the area’ and ‘banish the miasma’; those were their tasks. @HeroicSociopath @Rice Porridge @Cherrywitch
