PostSubject: Hunters...Assassins... (Closed)   Fri Apr 25, 2014 3:22 pm

[Friday, Week 10]

"W-...why are we at a pool hall? Couldn't we have done this...you know...at your house? It seems much nicer and you have a pool table there too..."
"No' why woul' we do tha'? No place is better for a nigh' like this than a pool hall-any sensible guy knows that!
"I don't mind either, really."
Yes, it is a guy's night out for the three boys in the city of Vale. Spencer has talked to Sonny about his cousin, Raven, more than a few times. After a large amount of casual stories, Spencer finally set a Friday night aside for a guy's night to introduce his cousin to his friend. Since Spencer was the one leading the two others, because Sonny needed to ride with him and Raven had to hold onto the back while on his board, he was going to pick the place. So, he picked what he thought was the best place for the occasion. A place where the three can hang around, talk, exchange stories, and shoot some pool. Now the three stand around the on-going game of Sonny and Raven against 'Mr. Good-at Everything' as Sonny has taken to start calling Spencer.
"Why are you wearing that? I mean...seriously, man."
"Wha'-d'-you mean?" Raven takes his shot.
"What do you mean 'wha'-d'-you mean?' Look at yourself!" Raven connects the cue ball to one of Spencer's and finally sends the striped ball he has been hunting into the corner pocket. Spencer looks down at his grey trench coat. A matching fedora sits atop his head.
"Hey-don' talk bad 'bout no trench coat. This getup is sweet! Not to mention, 'round this time o' year, y'need a heavy jacket for a bike at night." Raven quietly walks around and takes aim at another one of Spencer's stripes.
"So, wear a leather jacket or something. You...look like your about to solve a mystery or something!" Raven shoots and misses.
"Hey-I'll go-go gadget-kick your ass!"
"I think it's nice..."
While the three men argued, they had no idea that trouble was going to wait outside for them for when they were done...

Cynthia sighed as she waited on the roof of the office building near the pool hall. She sat on the edge with Deathscythe behind her and Figure 8 in her hand, various ammo loaded in all eight slots. Her assassin armor covered her in the darkness of the night, revealing only her crimson eyes.
"Excuse me, Ms. Creed," one of her guild mates, Richard, asked. "Three targets entered the pool hall. But which one are we going for?"
Cynthia frowns, "The reason I brought you along was because you were one of the most qualified Angels I had available. If you can't identify the target from three other people, then was I wrong to bring you?"
Richard quickly shook his head, "No ma'am, I am qualified."
Cynthia returned her attention back to the pool hall. "Then sit down and shut up."
Blair, the other assassin she had brought along, quickly brought Richard aside. "We're going after the cute one in the trench coat alright?"
Richard nods as Cynthia remembers the contract left at the Guild, If you eliminate Spencer Rouge, you will be rewarded handsomely for your efforts. The only information we have on him are the description below and the knowledge that he has better than average eyesight. She sighed and impatiently tapped Figure 8 against her leg as she waited for the right moment. I wonder how much trouble you'll cause me Mr. Rouge

*Click* goes the cue against the eight ball.
*Boom* goes the dynamite.
It was a close game, one which Spencer actually should have lost, but both Sonny and Raven missed on their last shots. Raven's positioned the ball on a straight shot for the side pocket for Spencer and he took it, sinking it easily. "Tie-breaker won. Spencer is victorious. Everyone? A golf-clap, if you will." Spencer and Raven raise their hands by their faces and lightly clap with a nearly blank expression on their faces. Then Spencer suddenly stops and turns to put the pool stick away. "-'ight, common."
Sonny leans over and shoots the cue ball into the corner pocket and follows. The two cousins pass by the counter to the door with Sonny in tow.
"Aye-thanks again, Len!" Spencer lifts his chin to the man behind the bar with a grin right before opening the inner door and holding it for the boys. Raven walks past and opens the outer door for the others. Spencer walks out first with Sonny a yard and a half behind him. Nobody is around on street level. The only other signs of life are from the street lights and lights above the door to the hall, making for more than just a few shadows.

Show time Cynthia grins as she loads 8 normal rounds into Figure 8. Blair loads her sniper and takes aim at the group of boys while Richard holds both of his knives in his hand.
"Do you have a clear shot?" Cynthia asked the sniper as her breathing slowed down.
She didn't move her head. "No. Not yet."
"Wait for Richard and me to make our move. Once you have a shot, take it." Cynthia ordered in a hushed, almost silent tone. Then she picked up Deathscythe and scaled the side of the building, dropping into an alleyway next to the building. She landed silently as she readied her weapon. A second later, Richard followed her down.
"So, what do you need me to do?" Richard asked as the assassin scanned the area.
"Go out and tell them that your friend needs help changing a tire or something. Just get them into a line of sight for Blair. If the opportunity doesn't present itself, then I'll step in and finish the job. Got it?"
The Angel nodded and sheathed his weapons, took a deep breath, and turned to walk into the street. Cynthia took this as her advantage and took cover behind a dumpster, Deathscythe hidden in the shadows.
Richard is heard in the street gasping for breath, like he had just run a great distance. "Please anyone! Please someone help me!" He shouts acting like he's worried. Damsel in distress, just like him Cynthia smiles as Richard calls to anyone who'd listen.

Despite the fact that Sonny looks over to the man first, Spencer (like always) is quicker on the draw. "Aye, brother, what's the problem?" He walks closer to the man but naturally stays a distance of a few yards away from the man. It is not far enough for Blair but Spencer has so far bought the show. Sonny has also bought it. Raven, however, does not like the fact that someone is coming up to the three men in the middle of the night asking for help. But even he does not expect anything to happen. He and Spencer may have their fair share of enemies-way more so Spencer, as he works more openly-but there are not many out there that can handle two young-buck Rouges. Especially when one is a graduated huntsman.
Darkness fills the City of Vale like the tenth plague...but the moon shines like Heaven itself...

"Oh, please, you've got to help me!" Richard continues the act, assured that he's convinced them. "My sister, Juliana, was just in an accident. She's on the next street over. Please you've got to help me!"
Cynthia, hearing no sniper shots, waits patiently for Richard to hurry up. Don't keep me waiting now She sighs to herself.
The cross hairs never left Spencer's head. Blair followed the young man as he approached the pleading Richard. She had a shot and she knew it, but for some reason, she couldn't pull the trigger. Her index finger buzzed as it rested on the trigger, waiting to take the easy kill. But she couldn't bring herself to do it. Why does he have to be so cute?! She cried mentally.

Oh no!
Spencer walks closer to the guy and is about to respond but something catches his eye. Something that really makes him hesitate.
A bit of the moon's light reflects off of Blair's scope and it is then that Spencer notices a difference in shade among the dark. The outline of a smaller person with feminine build. The arms are either in front of her or behind her. Logic would say that her arms are in front. In that instant, Spencer's eyes widen as he connects the dots on the only reason why someone would be crouched down behind a bit of cover, staying silent, and facing a criminal public enemy with their left arm in front of their chest and their right arm out but bent inward. "What happened?"
Acting quickly-to Sonny's horror and Raven's surprise-Spencer sucker punches the assassin's partner right on the cheek hard enough to turn him around and then quickly wraps his left arm around the guy's neck while drawing Delilah through the front of her holster. Upon this movement, Raven enters back into the pool hall. He knows this is not something his cousin would do to someone unless he felt threatened and trusts him enough to make that judgement. "What the hell?!" Spencer fires a couple rounds up at the silhouette and then pauses briefly. "Sonny-the roof!" Finally getting what is happening (or, just knowing they are being attacked for some reason, at least), Sonny draws Luna and Licht Hecht and points the shield's rifle at the general area where Spencer shot. *Click*-goes the safety as it is unlocked. "SUPPRESSING FIRE!" The shield makes its loud, cannon-like sound as Sonny puts a few rounds down range at a quick pace while Spencer attempts to back up.
Meanwhile, by the time Spencer fired his two shots, Raven is inside the hall, looking for a way to flank whatever force is, wherever it may be. "Back door! Show me!" Lenny, behind the bar grabs a pump shotgun from behind the bar for his defense and starts to move to the back to show Raven the way. "The heck is going on out there?!"
"I've no idea." That is the truth. All Raven knows is that the three of them are under attack by at least two people, with one of them being in the area on the side of the building. His specialty is stealth so he was going to use it before letting people know of his exact position. Spencer can handle himself for now. It was a reality Raven understood ever since the king taijitu incident.

Richard was embarrassed. His face was red with regret and fear as he was quickly taken hostage. Although he was disoriented, he knew that he would rather be taken hostage and killed than be taken hostage and released. If he made it through this ordeal, he would have to face Cynthia.

Son of a bitch Cynthia barks to herself as the sounds of combat are heard. She remains sitting behind the dumpster as her grip on Deathscythe tightened. She tapped Figure 8's barrel against her crouched leg as her mind raced to figure out her next move. In reality, she had a feeling that Richard would be found out, she just didn't want to think one of her Archangels could be discovered so easily. She shook her head and quickly rushed out and up the building across from her, quickly sheathing Deathsycthe to her back and changing the ammo in Figure 8. She discarded 5 of the 8 normal bullets and filled it with 1 smoke shot, 1 armor piercing, 2 explosive rounds, and a fire shot in that order. She observed the battle field for a brief moment and picked her shots. She shot the smoke shot right inbetween Rouge and the other boy, causing a thick cloud of smoke to engulf them, causing them to choke and hopefully blind them. The next shot was placed at the boy with the shield rifle. Memorizing his position, she shot it straight at the shield and hopefully disabled it or the boy. While diving forward off the roof of the building, she shot an explosive round at the feet at each boy. She was aware that Richard was in the line of fire, but he was a big boy and could handle himself. Plus it was a sort of punishment for getting caught so easily. While the explosions were active, she managed to rush across the street and get into flanking position.

Blair was disturbed by the sudden change of the scene. Richard was quickly taken over by the Spencer boy and the other boy quickly adapted as well. It took Blair a second to refocus on the action when she realized that the other boy had gone into the bar. She focused on him until she heard the thunderous noise of gunshots. Her cover was quickly broken apart around her as she continued to change cover while explosions raged around her. She rushes runs back towards the middle of the building while she tries to collect her thoughts.

Sonny is the first to react. His tactical instincts cancel his suppressing fire since the smoke should protect Spencer from any ranged attacks and he dives out of the smoke. First priority was to cover Spencer in his tight spot, second priority is elimination of the fog of war. That objective is far from completion since he does not know where Spencer is, because he would have had to observe his speed of falling back and then compare it to the time elapsed, he only knows the general area of where someone else is, and someone else provided a smoke screen. The problem is he did not see any grenade canister for it so he cannot pin point where the other target is...And then she falls from the sky. So, now he does have one target pin pointed with who knows how many others lurking in the shadows. Just before Sonny can engage though, two large explosions on the surface rock his ability to aim. So, all he can do is form himself into a defensive stance. The surface of Luna faces the girl at his 12 o'clock while Sonny lowers his posture to be more defended and pokes his spear out from under the side of the shield. His eyes widen when he notices Spencer and the other man being thrown from the cloud while the little girl disappears into the smoke.
When the smoke hits, Spencer cannot do a thing. The smoke plays tricks with his vision and becomes as helpless as someone with normal vision in a smoke screen is. Coughing and wheezing, all he can do is keep backing up. Spencer quickly sees the problem with his mobility now.
This guy is not doing anything good for me, dammit! So, Spencer's arm constricts around the assassin's throat in an attempt to choke him out and bail. He would really like someone to interrogate after this event, if he makes it out.
But he does not get the chance. A mere second after he flexes his arm and an explosion erupts right in front of the too men. The combination of the man in front of him, and his outfit of thick clothing, keeps Spencer from taking any shrapnel from the asphalt. When he lands, he is outside of the cloud of smoke and Delilah has dropped out of his hand, landing by him. "AAAaagh! Son of a-!..." Acting quickly, Spencer removes the personal scroll from his pocket and presses a panic button to call the police. It was installed so he could let his uncle know if he was in trouble with a bounty. In this case, he does not know it yet, but it is being used for exactly what it was installed for. Ugh, somebody please come help us soon. Spencer puts his scroll back and picks up Delilah. Right then he sees a girl, dressed in black, standing among the carnage. Her shape strongly suggests a child but her apparel makes it clear that she is in on this too. Not yet pointing at the assassin, Delilah's hammer gets pulled back with her double click sound of death itself...
Raven exits the back entrance and Lenny shut the door behind him. He quietly peaks around the corner to find a small girl in dark clothing, peaking from behind the dumpster. SHHH~OOT! Raven retreats back behind the corner for a couple seconds and then, when ready, he peaks around the corner again with the intent on ambush but there is a problem.
...She's gone?.. Then, Raven notices a tracer round hit up on the roof of the adjacent building. He knows that Spencer does not use any tracers with his weapon.
Someone's up there. Someone Sonny wants neutralized... So, Raven makes his move. He runs and hops up next to the building around back, grabbing onto a ledge of the rear entrance of that place and climbing up. On the surface there, Raven finds a ladder to the roof of the second floor and takes it, hoping to get the jump on the only target he knows the position of.
Raven stops short of the top of the ladder and grabs hold of Bravoure. Opening Faire Taire could potentially alert his target even with it designed for minimal opening noise so he opts for the knife as it is already combat-ready. Now he sits on the ladder with one hand at the second-highest bar and the other hand holding Bravoure.
As it sits, nobody on either side knows the complete situation but the assassins currently know more and have the advantage of that. The group of boys have the advantage in their state of health.

Richard's head was spinning as he laid on the ground, lying outside the smoke cloud Cynthia had launched and still trying to recover from the explosive shot. He starred straight up and figured it would be easier to just stay there and not draw attention to himself. If I don't move, they won't notice me. Or at least Cynthia won't. He mumbles to himself.
Cynthia smiled as she observed her work. The smoke worked to her advantage and disoriented her target as she had planned. She watched from the top of the building next to the pool hall, Deathscythe  firmly gripped in her hands. The blade gleaming in the moonlight, she picks out Spencer from the confusion. She see's the gun in his hand and reacts justly. She rushes forward, Deathscythe scrapping across the pavement and cutting into the ground as she brings the blade full swing, confident that the job will soon be completed. Got you, Rouge
Blair quickly adapts to what she understands is happening. She loads the rifle and quickly pops back into cover. Her eyes snap back onto the boy next to Spencer. She fires off a few rounds to try and break his concentration. She keep focusing her aim, until she realizes something; she lost the third boy "Where did you go?" She mumbles to herself as she keeps looking

Raven, finishing his climb up the ladder, finally gets a fix on the enemy's location with those shots. He places his palm on the top of the ladder and hops up, swinging his legs over and planting them on the surface of the roof. *Plop*
Sonny, realizing that Spencer is in trouble goes to fire Luna but looses his aim when a couple bullets slam into the ground right by him. He fires a couple shots but they impact far from the target.
Looking at the scythe's blade and timing it to the best of his ability, Spencer moves his left leg to the right, brings it up ahead of the scythe while it scrapes the road, and kicks back left to get the scythe out of the way. *Tink!* I CAN' BELIEVE THA' WORKED. He then starts to lift Delilah to point it at the girl practically standing over him. Regardless of his counter of the scythe, it is clear that he needs immediate assistance.

Meanwhile, a certain Captain in the VPD has gotten word of a situation in North-Northeast Vale involving a lot of gun shots. A couple minutes later, his scroll vibrates. "Oh no.."

Richard took the confusion to his advantage and hopped to his feet, drawing his blades in the process. He looks around and instantly picks out his target, the boy opposite of Spencer. He rushes forward and swipes both of the arm length hunting knives at the young man, aiming to incapacitate him as it was the assassins code to not kill civilians. Only Spencer was supposed to die tonight.
Cynthia cursed as she saw the blade get knocked aside. She quickly adapted to the sudden change and used the scythe as a sort of pole vault and propelled herself up and over the gun aimed at her. She looked down and actually looked into the young man's eyes. They were red, just like hers. She smirked, "Like this guy is anything like me." She told herself. After completing the vault she ran towards the pool hall and burst through the door, running through to the back door. She noticed a closet in the back with the door creaked open slightly. Propane tanks were visible in the slight light. She whipped out Figure 8 and aimed at the tanks, the Fire shot still in the barrel. She shot the bullet and watched it fly, and as it made contact with the tank she rushed out the back door. That should cause some sort of response She laughed to herself
Blair somehow heard the slight footstep to her right. She looked over and saw the third boy. He had a knife in his hand and was starring straight at her. She quickly and carefully set down the rifle and reached for her waist. She slipped on a pair of combat gloves and took a stance. "Come on, let's see what you got." She punches her open palm and smiles evilly.

Raven is surprised at the rifle and the fact that the girl has no secondary weapon. When Raven sees her start to put on his gloves his first instinct is, No secondary weapon?....vs...Hmhmhmh-A powerful carbine with a bayonet. He was thinking of pulling out Faire Taire and simply ending the girl but...
Then a violent tendency bubbled in Raven. He had heard her challenge and decided it would be much more fun for him close range. After all, a huntsman specializing in combat against human targets should not have the slightest issue with this girl. Especially one that looked to be younger and less experienced than him. So, Raven does not speak but simply takes a very solid-looking marine corps stance with his knife. A second later he lunges forward at a quick pace to run over to the girl and clear the bit of distance. As he moves forward, he spins Bravoure around his index finger twice and catches it before he gets within striking distance. His left hand moves forward first in an attempt to get a hand on the girl to help manipulate a strike with his blade. He is startled by the explosion of propane tanks by the building the two are on but Raven does not seem to be effected by the tremors, balance-wise while the assassin will likely be effected. His semblance is not very useful in normal situations but when it is useful, it is very useful. 100/97
Noticing the man with the medium-length blades coming, Sonny takes his spartan-like stance and upon the boy's attack, throws the top of his shield toward his face while blocking his attacks at the same time, all the while slowing his attacks a little and heavily increasing Sonny's own attack (much more than it slows Richard's attacks since his shield is a large solid mass and forged with, what Sonny claims are, the tears of unicorns, babies, and baby unicorns) with his semblance. He cannot often do too much about blades but knives require much more arm movement and that is something Sonny can slow pretty nicely.
His style of tactics, being a sentinel style of forcing his will upon attacking enemies, is not something a man with 'puny knives'-compared to Luna at least-should challenge. If the shield bash connects, it should result in Richard being 'kronwalled' and wrecked a bit more than he was before with the explosion since the explosion did not apply a heavy alloy to the face. 100/91
Spencer mentally breathes a sigh of relief as the threat on his life dodges his weapon and ran to the pool hall. It gives him time to stand, draw candy, and watch as Richard charges Sonny-someone he has noticed had a really sturdy stance when firing Luna last Tuesday-with two knives.
Instead of raising his weapons he simply thinks Aw'-I feel li'e this gon' be inter'stin'...
As Cynthia closes the back door to the pool hall, the sound of a shotgun cocking practically slams into her with its chilling sound. "Y'all get THE HELL outta my hall b'fore somethin' bad happens t'ya-an'y'all do it quick 'cause I'm watchin' these doors!!" It is Lenny. To the right of Cynthia is a short hallway with a rather large gun, being held by a rather large, middle-aged  man. One that does not look like he kids around about his hall too often...

And, just like that, a mixture of heavy semblance-related advantages and a poor choice in opponent brings the advantage back to Spencer's group of boys.

Blair smiles as the boy rushes her. Gotcha She grins. She's about to counter his grab but a sudden explosion startles her and messes up her balance. She quickly regains her balance but not fast enough to do what she intended to do originally. Instead, she ducks out of the initial attack and rolls up behind Raven.
Richard quickly realizes that he's outmatched. He had put the shield into thought during his initial attack, but he was not expecting the amount of force behind the impact of the shield slam. The intense hit was almost to much for him to handle; he almost blacked out from the sudden pain. In reality, Richard had not reached the rank of Archangel like this. He was a lire and a cheater who rose through the ranks through sneakiness and stealth. In reality, he couldn't fight worth a damn. As he lay on his back with the savage standing near him, he feels around his back for one of his smoke pellets. He pinched the pellet and was fully engulfed in a thick cloud of smoke. I should have stayed down he groaned.
Cynthia froze. The large man with the shotgun wasn't messing around, she could tell that much from his tone and appearance. She had no intention of fighting him as Deathscythe wouldn't fit in the small corridor. Instead, she sheathed Deathscythe. "Keep your shirt on sir. This doesn't concern you." She said calmly and sternly. She starred at the man as she turned and started walking out. Before she walked out though, she grabbed a beer from behind the bar and cracked the top off. She chugged the drink and gripped the bottle. She reached into her jacket pocket and pulled out a few bucks. "Thanks for the drink." She grumbled as she slammed the money on the counter. She skulked outside and made eye contact with Spencer. You certainly live up to expectations Rouge; this is tougher than I had originally imagined She sighed to herself as her grip tightened on the bottle alone.

Flexible, little thing. Impressive that she could maneuver that quickly with those tremors. Raven throws Bravoure back, aiming to hit the threat with the weighted butt of the knife while he backs himself the opposite way from the girl.
Just as the top of Luna connects with Richard's face, the propane tanks explode and the ground tremors. Spencer's first instinct is, "Du'e-was tha' you?!"
"-I don't think it was me!" The coincidence is just too much. The sound of an explosion and a tremor in the ground seemed fitting for a hit like that but that could not be possible, no matter how much the two boys want to believe it.
Suddenly, Sonny finds himself engulfed in smoke again. Once more, his first instinct is to escape the cloud of smoke so he leaves the wrecked man when he moves backward. Once outside the smoke's vicinity, he begins to strafe around the screen, watching for the man inside.
When the smoke engulfs Sonny, Spencer runs forward and squeezes the grips on both of his weapons and make them show their teeth. "Sonny, d'yeh have'm?"
"I got the fool. You take care of the princess." Sonny has already given the three known adversaries code names for the sake of future tactical ability against the Op-For. There was Guillotine (named for his/her role as the likely planned executioner), Princess (named for her fancy moves), and Fool (he was originally 'Cloak' for his original role but recent...events...influenced the change in his code name). "A'ight!" Spencer moves backward toward the opposite side of the street to where the hall's entrance is. He turns, jogs to the spot and then turns to face the building as the door opens to reveal the small girl.
Lenny interrupts the girl he practically dwarfs in size (6'3). "I believe my own-damn-bar concerns me-no' I ain't gonna ask you again!" Frustrated, Lenny stands there, watching the girl while he points the weapon at her as she downs a beer. How old is this girl?! She looks a little older than her size but see's much smaller than a normal person. When the girl finally leaves, Lenny breathes a sigh of relief and moves to take cover behind the bar and point his shotgun at the entrance.
Spencer addresses the girl. "Those weapons o' yours! You wou'n' be the famed assassin everyone's been lookin' for, would ya?" Spencer already knows the answer. Nobody uses such unique weapons and such a unique style as the person from the wanted posters.
The posters tell of a young, female assassin with a Scythe and Revolver-pistol. Any other details on her description are inconsistent so an artist could not provide a sketch but the weapons she use seem to have a good description. The poster called for the young assassin's death or turning in and her trademark weapons as proof of her identity.
Spencer slips Candy into buffalo grip with the hand that holds her like it's nothing. All he does is do the trick for handing someone a pistol with one hand but slips his finger in the trigger guard. "The posters call for a shor', little thing with a large scythe and a revolver tha's abou' the size o' this 'ne here in my han' but ain' exac'ly like it. I see a scythe on yeh an' one helluvuh gun on your thigh-there." [OOC: I assume she holstered Figure 8 when she drank the beer.]
Spencer then slips Delilah in her holster after retracting her blade. "Woul'n't draw 'er if I was you, though. She'd be outta your han' 'fore she coul' fire a shot." The assassin was in Spencer's court now at the medium range-distance they stand at. He is confident in himself with the fact that his opponent has just as big of a pistol as him but does not look like she has a holster like his and likely does not practice a quick draw like he does. "But I wan' that money. An' I wanna keep my clean record..." Spencer smirks. In his mind he worries about going against a scythe with tiny blades and no training on disarming polearms but he would rather not kill someone today. He's about to get his butt handed to him and he knows it. Hurry up, uncle!...
Currently, the police are still a few minutes out.

As the blade flew towards Blair, she reacted quickly and snapped her body around in a sort of spinning motion. She turns to the right and as the knife passes in front of her face, she grabs the knife handle and Raven's hand in the process. She continued to spin and pulled Raven along. When Raven is in front of her, she lets go and attempts to throw him over the side. This is a heavy bastard! She groans as she yanks the large boy along.
Richard, feeling slightly better, manages to get to a kneel. He breathes slowly and carefully, making sure he doesn't breath in to much smoke. He watches as a shadow circles the cloud and Richard quickly figures out that it was the titan that knocked him out. "I don't plan on dying today." He told the shaded figure. "And I can guarantee that you feel the same. So how's this? We both just walk away from this, huh? Sound good to you?" He said, trying to mask his pain.
Cynthia glared at Spencer. Deathscythe was still strapped to her back and Figure 8 was at her side. The only weapon on hand was an empty beer bottle. She glanced down at it as she heard Spencer's words, not paying attention to the bottle, but to his tone. She had been taught how to understand people's intentions through their word choices and tone. Although Spencer was a little tough to read, she knew he wasn't going to shoot her. If anything, he would wait until she was close enough and then maybe knock her out. Her mind was focused but also fuzzy at the same time. She glanced over at Spencer and cocked her head to the side. Then halfheartedly tossed the empty bottle at him. Then she leisurely reached back and unsheathed Deathscythe. I'm calling your bluff Rouge She glares at him.

Raven grabs the ledge as he is shoved into it and stops himself short of falling back. Now with a stable surface to work with, he takes advantage of his body's size and starts to pull against Blair's grip. His arm slowly pulling hers' back over to her left, in front of her as as he seems to stare straight into Blair's eyes. I wont lose just as easily as that... It was clear by now just how good this girl was.
The man's large amount of vocal samples show Sonny where he is. Idiot! He didn't even try to move from his spot on the ground! Sonny lifts Licht Hecht over his shoulder without twirling it around, so the bottom end of it faces the smoke. The bottom tip may not be for killing but it could definitely break a rib, or two, and create a little bleeding when hitting something. Without saying anything, Sonny whips the spear into the smoke, where he last saw Richard, like a javelin. I don't think you're in any position TO BARGAIN!
Spencer walks forward, Candy in hand; her red blade contrasting the white grip she bares. Spencer speeds up to a kind of gallop as he draws closer to the girl. He is forced to slow down his pace momentarily when the bottle gets thrown at him. He dodges the bottle, letting it fly past his shoulder but his momentum, Spencer's only advantage, is severely damaged.

Blair quickly realizes that she is outmatched in the position she is in. The boy is larger with her and he has an advantage in upper body strength. She thinks quickly and, while he's facing her, she head butts him. While he's (Hopefully) stunned, she uses the confusion to plant both her feet on the ledge and propelling herself backwards so she can have a better advantage. Not planning to do that again. I need to rethink this.
Richard saw the spear for a brief second before it rammed into his shoulder. He collapsed back to the ground, clutching his shoulder but holding his tongue. Holy, mother of god! That bastard broke my shoulder! He fell to his knees and continued to clutch his wrecked limb. He stood up and looked down at the spear. It was nicely crafted and had an exquisite design to it. Wait, I can see it? Sure enough, Richard noticed that his smoke cloud was disappearing. He thought quickly and started to make his way towards the alleyway of the pool hall. Then he noticed something disturbing; the sound of police sirens in the distance.
Cynthia took notice of Spencer's fault and swung the large scythe to her left, bringing the blunt side of the massive weapon into Spencer's chest. If it hits, it should send him flying to the left, down the road or into the wall of one of the nearby buildings, depending on how unstable he is and how solid her hit is.

Raven does not expect the hit. Such a bold move from this girl with her duck and weave style. It is a move Raven himself prefers when he is in a situation like she was in.
As he reels back and nearly falls off the ledge again, he glares at the girl. The damage starts to be helped by Raven's aura. I should be able to take an opponent like you. She must be very experienced.
These people...they are not thugs, that's for sure. No-these are different from the assassins previously encountered...
On the other side of the conflict, Spencer thinks the same thing as he charges his target.
A league o' their own;
And one that mus'n't be taken lightly. Raven holds his forehead with his left hand while peaking under it at the girl, directly into her eyes. Change in strategy. Focus on overwhelming her and saturate her with it to keep her from moving much. Pin her. If one were to look into Raven's eyes, they would start seeing an awakening in him. He is starting to lose his fear and thinking more like a huntsman than the trainee he was just a year ago. 94/97
His left hand comes back down and he takes his strong stance back. Then, he starts to walk forward and spin his knife around his finger. Four times it rotates around before being caught. When caught, Raven does not hesitate to lunge forward. This time, he keeps his knife low and in front of his chest, aiming to gain more ground on his opponent before going in for an attack.
Sonny enters the dissipating smoke, in somewhat of a riot police stance with Luna, to find the man has retreated. Quickly, he picks up Licht Hecht and exits after the man, just in time to see Spencer get swatted like a fly. 100/93
Spencer can't help but acknowledge the fact that these three assassins are much better than the normal group of killers. A league o' their own; he thinks as the assassin swings her scythe.
Spencer is in no place to dodge. No matter what he does, his only defense with his .500's is his mentality of raw force and offensive tactics. And only one of those is acceptable to use right now. As the scythe is swung down toward him, Spencer brings up his right arm and holds Candy a little ahead of his right arm to prevent any broken bones while not completely blocking with the weapon as that would cause more damage to Candy than he would like. He was really hoping for a right-hand swing so he could appropriately attempt a counter with the blade on Candy. In this position, he can only take the hit.
Spencer flies farther than he is used to. Generally, people don't often hit him at all, let alone that hard. He's usually able to scare people out of it or use some trick to get out of a dead-on contact hit and the only time he usually ever gets hit that hard is by a grimm. A totally shoot-able-usually-has-their-head-blown-off-before-they-get-into-melee-range Creature of Grimm. When Spencer is hit, Candy is pulled from his grip and put out of reach. He spins around a time and a half and turns sideways in the air. When he hits the pavement though, he lands on his hands and knees in the street, a few yards away from the girl. An' one tha' mus'n' be taken ligh'ly. Right when he lands, Spencer gets on his feet in a crouch, grabs Lotus from his boot, and pushes off forward, holding Lotus upside down in his right hand for better defense. When he closes to Cynthia's range, he is wide open once again. 84/91
When Spencer gets hit, Sonny looks over to where Richard ran to and then looks back at Spencer, landing and taking off again. Mmmmh~! Dammit-Spencer! Frustrated, Sonny takes a defensive stance and advances toward Cynthia. Taking a source of information for Spencer to interrogate has no use if Spencer himself is dead.
Sonny moves toward Cynthia's backside (too slow to be in melee range when Spencer is) in a low stance. Luna's back end rests on Sonny's shoulder and its barrel points toward the ground. Licht Hecht is pointed lower and a little to the right to make Luna the front-most part of Sonny's stance. It creates a sort-of modern military/Spartan hybrid-stance. One geared more for the melee combat him and Spencer are partaking in with their common foe.

Blair quickly observed the changed Raven. She noticed the change in his eyes, the fire that had just ignited. She narrowed her vision and watched his body as he rushed her. He was trained for combat, that much was visible. He may have been stronger than her, but she was more agile and slightly faster. The assassin moved precisely and swiftly as she took one strong step forward and propelled herself up and over the large boy. She strained her body to clear the unbearable height. Too high, too high! Her brain screamed as she somehow managed to get over him. When she landed, she rolled to get back to her feet but her legs were still strained. She managed to kneel while still getting ready for Raven's inevitable countering move.
Richard looked around for cover while he administered first aid to his shoulder. He carefully managed to create a sort of sling out of his shirt and some pieces of trash. He braced himself against the wall and breathed quietly. Deep breaths Richard, you've been trained for this. He silently told himself. As he sat by himself, he became more and more aware of the incoming police officers. He leaned his head back against the wall and tried to think of a way out.
Cynthia noticed Spencer's quick recovery and his sudden move back into the fight. She grinned as she continued to swing Deathscythe around her body and bring it full circle for another hit, this time with the blade pointed towards Spencer. She braced the back of the weapon against her waist while holding it in her left hand and used her right hand to secure Figure 8. She remembered that she only had three normal shots left before she'd have to reload. She kept the gun low so it wouldn't draw attention as she continued to swing the massive blade in her hands, unaware of Sonny's approach behind her.

Following the girl's movements, Raven reverses his stance to face his opponent and, instead of leaning on his left leg and kicking with his right, leans on his right side to bring a stomping motion toward the center of the girl's back with Ravens weight on it. 95/95
This time, Spencer has a more maneuverable weapon. One that can counter a blow on his opposite arm's side. He could never directly parry weapon like this assassin's directly so he aims for another half-block. He brings up Lotus just over his left shoulder to parry the inner-side of the scythe's blade. The metallic pieces slide against each other, creating a spray of sparks, while Spencer starts to push the scythe's blade behind him and spins around counter clockwise so he can follow Cynthia's scythe with his knife. The pole of the assassin's scythe then slams into Spencer's back. It is a heavy blow but he does not stumble. His face winces and his upper body is pushed forward a little but his legs do not move from the spot. His eyes look down into the girl's. His smirk is that of a father who was just the victim of pain at the hands of his small child who did not know any better. His voice is a little shaky from the pain in his back and his arm from before. "...Th-that kinda hurt, y'know.." 78/87
Sonny watches as the scythe's shaft is brought down on Spencer's back and winces at how painful that looked. Euhw~... Now that Cynthia has Spencer to deal with, Sonny works quickly to relieve him. He enters close range with the girl's six o'clock position and brings the face of his shield into her back side. With the way his stance was, Sonny's bash was more of a harsh push with a slight bump-feeling to it than anything that would cause much more than discomfort but the nature of the move with the combination of the wall-like Luna is good for causing the small girl to stumble forward and release Spencer from his position. Sonny then presses the golden spear tip of Licht Hecht into the pavement between him and his friend and the opposition's weapon. Crossing his spear's shaft with her scythe's to prevent it from swinging back with a quick attack. Unlike Spencer, Sonny's choice in weapons make him an actual opponent for Cynthia in melee combat. He may not be a worthy opponent, but he should be able to hold out much longer than Spencer in balanced, one-on-one combat with her. 100/94
When Spencer is relieved, he steps back a couple yards to Sonny's right side and switches Lotus to his left hand.  79/84
"Wha'took yeh so long? D'ya get 'im?"
"Coming from the guy who is still dealing with his assigned target. And no, Fool got away."
"Really? Aw~wha' the heck, man."
"-Hey-I came here to save your sorry bum instead-and don't you forget it."

Blair felt the full weight of the kick and was forced forward, rolling towards the edge of the roof. She landed on the wall and sat up against it, her body sore from the sudden hit and her previous use of energy. As she propped herself up, she heard the sirens closing in and knew what was happening. Shit, cops! I gotta warn Cynthia and Richard. She said to herself as she saw Raven coming towards her. As she looked around, she saw her rifle still set up the way she left it. That's it. She smiled and once Raven was too close to change direction, she rushed towards the rifle. But instead of turning and shooting the large boy, she lept over the side of the building, rifle in hand. While free-falling, she quickly popped the grappling hook attachment into the barrel and aimed it at the building she had just jumped off off. She shot the metal cable at one of the concrete supports and swung back towards the building. She was coming in fast and slammed into the side of the building with a good amount of force. Fortunately, she managed to hit a window. Unfortunatly, she went right through the window. The force was too much and the cable snapped as she flew through the window and into the lower floor. She rolled for a few yards, knocking over a plant and a small garbage can. When she came to a stop, she checked herself for any injuries, and then she checked her rifle for any damage. It was a little scuffed but nothing she couldn't fix back at the guild. She stood up and stumbled over towards the fire escape.
Richard knew that Cynthia and Blair could handle themselves, so he became focused on getting back to the guildhall with a broken shoulder. He hadn't had the time to set up some sort of escape route that could be reached with his wounds. He looked around and realized that his luck had changed; there was a motorcycle parked in front of the pool hall. When he peaked around the corner, he saw that the boys were distracted with Cynthia. If he could manage to create a large enough smoke screen that he could sneak the bike away and maybe hotwire it. It would be tough, but he could manage it. And if not then at least he could mess up the bike and delay their inevitable pursue.
Cynthia wasn't sure what had just happened. At first, she was only aware of Spencer blocking her second strike, and then his cocky response. Then, almost a second later, she felt a massive blow against her back which caused her to flip over Spencer and roll away from him. When she popped to her feet, she looked back to see Spencer and the other boy who was kicking Richard's ass. Damn it Richard! I never should have taken you with me! She screamed mentally. She observed the two boys, waiting for their move. While they were occupied, she took out Figure 8 and loaded five more shots: 3 explosive rounds and 2 armor piercing. She aimed the gun at the boy with the shield and pulled the trigger, launching an explosive round at him.

Raven looks away for a second toward the sound of police cars driving this way and then looks back at the girl he was after. He could tell she heard the sirens too. Don't. You- But the girl lunges for her rifle and, before Raven can catch her, she leaps from the building. When he looks over the edge, the girl crashes through a window below.
Raven sheaths Bravoure and prepares to go after the girl but he sees Sonny and Spencer and the mess they are in. "Hmm~.." The man leaps over the ledge and turns to grab hold of it. For a quick way down, Raven lets go and grabs hold of the broken windowsill to slow his fall. He then rapidly lets go of it and lands in the alley way between the two buildings. 96/93
Spencer is not paying attention fully. That is a big mistake he has made. When Figure 8 is moved, Spencer reacts, quick-drawing his own gun while the enemy's is fired. His is aimed from his hip at the assassin's gun.
Sonny barely notices the gun raising to him in time to mentally prepare himself for getting hit.
The bullet connects with Luna and Sonny finds himself flying back from an explosion. He hits the pavement with his back and slides a short ways before his legs lift up and then extend back out when the slide stops. "Ugh~~..." He already knows Luna will need some work done on her when he gets back to his team's dorm. More than just the usual touch-up on the paint it needs after a fight like this. 93/89

As Blair made her escape, she knew that Cynthia would be fine for a while and Richard could always figure out a way to escape a jam. She ran behind the office building and made her way to a parked car. She quickly and silently broke into it and started to hotwire the van. She started up the SUV and began to make her way to the other side of the building. She heard the cops a few blocks down. She turned left twice and slowly turned onto the road where the combat was happening. She rolled down all the windows and honked the horn twice to get her team's attention. Then proceeded to speed down the road.
Richard couldn't believe his luck. When he saw Blair pull up in the SUV, he hurried over to her and opened the left back door. He hopped in the truck as she took off. When Blair took off, he adjusted himself to be in the passenger's seat. "Glad you showed up." He told her as they sped to pick up Cynthia. "No problem. Let's just get out of here." Blair responded.
Cynthia's body went into overdrive as she quickly realized what was happening. She saw the car coming towards her as she holstered Figure 8 and jumped over Spencer. As she jumped over him, she put her hand flat palmed on his head and used her Semblance to distort his memory of her. She changed his mind to remember her brilliant blue eyes. Then, while in mid-air, she spun her arm and jammed Deathscythe's blade into the truck of the truck. The design of the blade allowed her to remain attached to the car as it sped down the road, the backwards spikes digging into the truck. She gripped the handle of her weapon and brought herself to stand on the handle, her knees bent as she stabilized herself. As Blair drove to a safe distance, she growled, "Until next time Rouge. Until next time." A few seconds later, the red and blue flashes of police lights were visible on the street they had just left.

Raven draws Faire Taire and plants four rounds into the cab, hoping to hit someone as it passes by. When he gets around the corner of the building, he is able to get another round off at the vehicle but it misses the body. He does not say anything as he lowers the carbine and flips it to safety. He just eyes the corner that the vehicle passed in frustration as the first police car roles up. You'll regret trying again, if you do...
Spencer turns his body to the direction the SUV heads and raises Delilah, aiming for the tire but cannot get a fix on it before they turn out of sight. He waits another second before pulling it back and calmly pointing Delilah's barrel to the sky. *Click*
Spencer pulls the trigger while holding his thumb on the hammer to release the lock. He lets the hammer come down softly, as to not fire the gun, and then slips her into her respective holster.
"Better check on Sonny..." He says to himself as the first police car arrives.
