Jade had been overcome with a million emotions as she stood in her spot and blocked the world out. Her eyes stared at those whom she believed were her friends, yet she felt nothing anymore. No ties to them, no emotional connection. It was as if, due to everything that she was feeling, her body had shut down and gone numb. She tried to grab on to every word that Lauren said to her, but it was as if everything was just slipping out of her grasp. It wasn’t until a familiar voice rang in the petite girl’s ears that had her turn slightly to focus on Mora’s face. Jade still felt nothing as Mora threw demands at Jade, in which she did not respond to. After a while of Jade just staring at the two, she finally seemed to get a grip on reality and shook her head, which seemed to take more muscles than she ever imagined. “I…. I think you should tell one of the other little medic cadets to do that, Mora.” With that being said, Jade motioned for another fool nearby to help out the two girls, hoping that they could get something done while she went out and found a way to take out her anger that had slowly began to rise up inside of her.
She had barely began to turn around when she her her name come from a voice behind her. It was Grant, who seemed to be unraveling at the seams. He always kept such a cool and collected demeanor, but as Jade looked at his face she could see something was more than bothering him. “Hey Grant,” she was able to find her voice and was thoroughly surprised that she didn’t sound like the completely mess that she felt she was, “Is everything okay?”
As Grant spoke, Jade couldn’t help but to feel slightly guilty for not having backed up Grant back when he was telling everyone what the plan was. She watched as he dusted himself off with trembling hands and offered the young man a warm smile as she reached up and took his hands with hers. “Grant, we signed up for this. Each and every one of us knows exactly what we were doing when we made our decision. If anyone dies, it won’t be because of you. They will be sacrificing their lives because they want to help our people. Please don’t let that distract you… If it makes you feel any better, I’ll stay by your side the whole time… We’re in this together.” Even though the young woman felt as if she were about to run off screaming, she had to keep herself together in order for her peers to not lose it.
At that point, all Jade could do was hope that Grant took every word she said to him and it helped him gain some sort of comfort. Unfortunately, though, he still seemed distracted. With that observation in mind, Jade gathered her thoughts and prepared herself before going after Grant and keeping up with him. He was distracted, and a distracted fighter was a liability. Jade would make sure that Grant carried out his master plan without a flaw and lived to tell the tale. She got on the lift and readied herself in case she needed to use her blades. She had enough gas in her tanks to take to the air, but she refused to leave Grant’s side just in case. The brunette followed suit as soon as the lift was low enough, keeping up with ease as she kept an eye on the surroundings. Her attention was quickly grabbed by a 7-meter titan, a look of disgust falling on Jade’s face as she made eye contact with it. Grant was the first to respond, heading after the monster without thinking twice. Jade was the next, taking to the air with a sudden jolt, seeing as how her body responded much quicker than her actual mind. “Grant! Like before, I’ll take the knees out and you hit the nape!”
With her hair flinging back as she flew with an incredible speed, a sense of satisfaction grew inside of Jade as she imagined taking out the titan. Her eyes had been so focused on the back of the knees that she hadn’t seen that the giant had begun to reach over to her. A single scream escaped her lips as she tried to react quicker than the titan. She had merely escaped the titan’s grasp before the other hand reached for the young woman. She had not calculated her speed and had reached the titan faster than she had anticipated, and to add on to her failure, she had not expected for the brainless cannibal to react to her. “Fuck! No!” Another quick miss on behalf of the titan which threw off Jade from her plan, and sent her rolling through the air and onto the ground, skidding to a stop.
A small groan could be heard emanating from Jade, but she didn’t let the fall stop her. Disoriented, she stood up as quickly as she could before making herself a bit more steady and getting away from the 7-meter before it could step on her.
