I do not own the concepts of Fire Emblem nor Final Fantasy Tactics.
We were now on a mission. A mission to find information on Sarine's father. I was among the party that was led by Michy. Miranda kept complaining along the damn way.
"STOP TOUCHING ME, YOU FUCKING PERVERT!"
"I CANNOT HELP IT! MY HANDS ARE CURSED!"
Once again, Raul was trying to hit on Miranda. It wasn't working. I looked back to Rennelle, who was wiping the sweat off her forehead. Looks like the sun wasn't doing any wonders for her…
Bort was being his usual grumpy self and Gile was being stoic as usual.
"Kasumi?" Sarine asked me.
"Are you sure about this? I don't want you getting hurt on my account."
"Are you kidding? I've been doing this since I was in my teens." I boasted. "Bandits are nothing to me!"
"Says the girl who kept running from that perverted thief on our-" I silenced Bort by hurling a rock at his face.
Michy sighed. "Can you please stop with the childish nonsense?" He shook his head.
Soon, we arrived at the town of Nilburgh. There was an old man who had lots of info.
Michy told us to wait outside while he spoke with the informant. Like he didn't need to tell us twice.
As soon as he left, Miranda went off to shop, and Raul went off to find some sweet women to woo.
Gile had gone off to buy us some weapons, and Bort and Rennelle went off to the magic shop.
I was alone with Sarine, not like I could do any lewd thing to her, since I was a girl. She was staring off into space, her eyes glazed.
"Sarine? You ok?" I tapped her shoulder gently. She snapped out of it and looked at me. "Yes?"
"Are you ok? You were staring out into space there."
"I'm fine. I was just thinking about my father…" Her face fell at the mention of her father. "I'm worried… What if he's hurt… or worse?"
"Don't worry, Sarine." I comforted her. "I'm sure he's fine. Besides, If anything happens, we've got your back!"
Just then, a loud scream pierced the air. "What was that?" Sarine stood up.
"Trouble." I clenched my teeth and pulled out my blades. "Stay here." I ran off towards the direction of the scream.
I stopped to see a group of bandits ganging up on a young woman. "C'mon, baby." He grinned lecherously at her. "We just want a little fun!"
"I doubt she wants to play with scum like you," I growled out, getting their attention. "Let her go, now."
"You and what army, babe?" The leader snorted.
He got his answer by a jeweled knife landing in his shoulder, causing him to scream out in pain. "FUCK!"
"Dammit, I missed." Miranda cursed as she walked beside me. "I was aiming for his crotch."
"HALT, FOUL VILLAIN!" Raul emerged from my right as he brandished his new sword. "I will not allow you to taint this woman with your evil!"
"Are you all right, Kasumi?" Rennelle asked as she ran up behind, Bort and Gile following behind.
"I'm fine. The lady, on the other hand, needs help." I pointed to the trembling young woman, whose clothes were in disarray.
"Enough of this! Let's kill them all!" Roared a bandit.
"Listen up, boys! We will kill the men, but LEAVE the girls in one piece." The leader pulled out the knife from his shoulder and licked the blood off. "ATTACK!"
"IN YOUR DREAMS, YOU ASSHOLE!" Miranda screamed at him.
With that, the battle began.
Bort began casting a Fire-2 spell, covering the enemies with a blanket of flames. Gile was hacking and slashing at the bandits around him.
Meanwhile, Raul was doing a damn good job with his opponents. He dodged a swipe from the first bandit and swung his sword across his abdomen, leaving a deep gash. The bandit groaned in pain and fell to the ground.
The second bandit rushed at him, axe raised to cut his head clean off. Raul, however, anticipated the attack and slashed his neck, slicing his head off.
Miranda was being chased by a lecherous bandit. "C'mere, babe! I just wanna sniff your dress!" He chuckled.
"GET AWAY FROM ME!" Miranda turned around and kicked him in the groin, causing him to double over. She grabbed her knife and stabbed him in the butt. "AAAAARGH!" The bandit yelped in pain and stumbled off.
Miranda then spun around and began to dance in such a sensual way that it caught most of the bandits' attention.
Rennelle began to cast Cure on Gile and Protect on the rest of us. She looked at the leader, who was too busy watching Miranda's dance.
I gripped my blades and ran head on towards them. Not even bothering to look, I swung and swung, blood hitting my face as they fell down dead.
Miranda stopped dancing and hurled her other knife at the leader's eye. "GAAAAAH!" The leader held his face in pain as he thrashed around on the ground.
Michy ran out onto the battlefield, with Sarine in tow. "Kasumi! What happened?" He called out.
I told him about the situation with the nearly raped woman and the bandits. Michy nodded as he rushed towards the woman, who was hiding behind a pile of boxes.
Sarine ran towards me and hugged me. "Oh, Kasumi! I was worried about you!"
"Hey, I'm fine! Those losers weren't nothing!" I was reluctant to return the hug, but Sarine felt so warm, so soft…
What the hell was I thinking? I don't like her THAT way! I shoved those thoughts away as Michy began to escort the woman away from the scene of carnage.
I looked around as Miranda grabbed her knives and adjusted her skirt. Gile and Raul were polishing their weapons, Rennelle was cleaning the blood off of her robes, Boyt was taking some gold from their bodies.
I sighed. Today was a long day. Sleep would be welcoming right now. I headed back towards the inn, with Sarine on my arm.
