Fade In…

Of course the walk couldn't be uneventful. That'd simply be too easy. They'd been most of the way clear of the valley when a bolt of fire literally sailed over Amy's head and she was pulling Misfit down and off the path and into the bushes. "Shhh shhh!" She hisses. Above them people are shouting variations on 'They went that way! Find them!"

"Dark ones. And here I was hoping they'd leave us alone for once."

***

Charlie is a bit distracted by faerie because it is amazing and then of course by the sheer headache she is developing staring at her homeland without realizing it. She squeeks in alarm as a bolt of fire flies by and she ends up pulled into the bushes. She does go bat-ninja quiet thouh and blinks behind her goggles, waiting to see if they are found or for a clue about it being dark vengeancing time. Something about dark ones is making her blood boil though.. she really wants some dark vengeancing as the moments tick by

***

Amy is staring up at them. Watching. Counting. "Five… six… seven…" She sighs. "And they'll have soldiers with them. What are they doing this far out from the Opal Empire though?" Not like Charlie knows the answer to that. "Getting through there might be… a bit tough. Should we go around?"

***

Well all said having both Amethyst and whateverCharlie'sRealNameIs, her luck it is something like Star Ruby or something, in the realm and within reach probably tripped some sort of omen magic for all the two of them know. Charlie squints up at them through her goggles really angry. "I want to punch their stupid faces in… do you think we can take them… I want to take them…" eyes a bit red once more. Maybe she can be whispered into going around.

***

"It'll be a really big fight." Amy whispers back. "Not sure how many mo-" Before she can say anything else two of them start down toward the very bush in which Charlie and Amy are hiding. Just their luck indeed.

***

Charlie stares with intensity now "hm stay here unless it looks like I need help… this should confuse the hell out of them" is whispered. Then Charlie leaves Amy in the bushes bouncing out >pinkurple> and appears behind the one farthest from the bush and punches him right where his neck meets his skull right in the spine with her weighted gloves. Her free hand flings a slew of bat-smoke-pellets out at the others "Bastards!" not sure where that slipped from, then she is gone with a bounce >pinkurple> and appears much further down the road away form Amy.

***

Well that gets their attention. Seven, well, six Dark Ones now and a dozen or so soldiers all turn on Charlie. The Soldiers only have swords and such but the dark ones? It's not long at all before there's a lot of heat coming Charlie's way. A lot of it. Fire. Ice. Lightning. Everything but the kitchen sink.

***

Charlie isn't really planning on fighting all of them. She vanishes with a flash of smoke.. it looks a little redder in the afternoon light. She does something she has nigh perfected in Gotham. She reappears above one, kicking down with steel toed batgirl boots right to the temple with her own weight then slashes out and appears still with her forward motion to nail the next right in the back of the knees. She is trying to really get them spinning and hopefully cross firing. CHAOS.

***

That works for about a minute. And then one of them just tosses up a ward. "It's a Ruby Rebel!" No one's seen anything like this in years. Not since the House… well, it's been years. "Trap her! We need to interrogate her!"

***

Charlie finds herself unable to bounce in close to them again and sighs "Wards." she mutters and then she flings a field of bat-caltrops onto the road between her and them before appearing well above them and dropping … not a smoke pellet. No she drops two flashbangs … and then she is back in the bush with Amy to watch them go off in the midst of the guards. "Ok I feel better… we should probably make a break for it though….. they have chaos wards."

***

"Oh that won't do them any good against this!" The guards are still disoriented from Misfits Flashbanging of them (flash wihtout magic?!) and Amy rises up to send bolts of order toward them. It puts them down, their wards no good against Amathyst magic. Then Amy's grabbing her hand and just running. "Quick. They may have others lurking nearby."

***

Charlie does a Muttley worthy snicker when the flashbangs go off, team SCIENCE…. and thne she is grabbed and dragged "Right" she hisses and dashes with Amy letting her lead once more. She is in great shape.

***

It's about ten minutes or so before Amy slows again. She's in pretty good shape too it seems. "Okay, really, Misfit. Where are you from? You can drop the act with me. I'm a friend."

***

Charlie pushes her goggles up onto her forehead. "Gotham." her eyes are back to the normal crystal blue "Earth.. well Metropolis really…" she trails off "And well.. yeah I mean you are obviously the good guy not those jerkfaces…" her eyes narrow just thinking about them. "I really do not like them."

***

"They said you were using ruby magic. And you kind of were. How did you learn that in Gotham?" She seems a bit suspicious. Well okay. Really suspicious. Which makes sense given all that's gone on.

***

Charlie eyes the rise over yonder that was their destination for her attempt to get home and then looks back to Amy. This whole thing is putting some strain on her mind. "Is that a kind of chaos magic?" she asks brow furrowed. She is either a really good actor or she has no clue. "And well.. the bouncing is just something I've always known how to do.. and the unluck stones well Fenris Wolf taught me how to make runestones."

***

"The w- never mind. It's yes, it's a very specific kind of chaos magic." Amy shakes her head. "Well… there's your exit there, anyway. If you come back… just be care of the Lords of Chaos. Oh and Lord Opal."

***

There is that tick again at the Lord Opal reference, unmissable. "Right… " she shakes her head as if clearing it "I should really go save Fenris now… I'll ask him about Ruby Chaos Magic though… everyone is always trying to figure out how I work so that might help." she offers a cheerful grin there "I may bring him back wiht me here, he likes Faerie to give you a hand with those jerkfaces though okay?"

***

"Any help would be welcome." Amy replies. It'll just have to be a mystery for now. "Good luck Misfit. With your… boyfriend." She wonders how much help he could really be, though.

***

Charlie nods to that "Thanks.. I really don't know what could have kidnapped the Wolf God and warded me out of it…. but I aim to find out and kick their asses hard!" she steps away with a smile. Who knows though, maybe Amy will figure out more after Misfit leaves. "Thanks for the guiding…" she then vanishes with a slash of reddish pink/purple smoke to the rise… and concentrates very hard on home before bouncing right out of Faerie >redPinkurple>
