Two Months Ago
"So... You're saying it just appeared. In your bed. Whilst you were sleeping."
"...Lyna. Lyna, Lyna, Lyna, that just won't
Lyna yelped in shock as her friend gave her a hearty slap on the back. She was just telling Romana how it was. She'd had some weird dream, and when she woke up she'd found some weird wand thingy clutched in her hands.
"Um... Why won't it do, Ro?" she asked.
"It's. Too. BORING.
" Romana propped back her glasses, and wrapped an arm around her friend's shoulders. "C'mon Lyna, we've got a lot
of work to do..."
"Um... Wh-what kind of work are y-you talking about?" Lyna was hesitant to ask. She just knew this was going to end in something exploding. Just like last time.
"Isn't it obvious?" Her bespectacled friend smirked conspiratorially. "We're gonna make a superhero out of you!"
...Yep. Explosions are inevitable.
Two Months Later
The first month had been pretty neat, all things considered. Beating up thugs, saving the day, regular hero stuff really, but to her it was something brand new and wonderful. Like something out of one of her comic books. Sure, it wasn't like she as making much of an impact, or that she'd ever make it to the big leagues, but as long as she was helping someone everything would be okay, right?
And then... It
The damage left by The Sentinel Striker and Ragnarok was unbelievable. To think that two people between themselves could cause such catastrophic devestation... And the backlash towards heroes afterwards was something she'd never once thought could be possible. Things started to go downhill for a while afterwards. But still, it seemed like the people still trusted her. Whenever she went out in costume, she could... She could feel
the hope she gave them. Maybe she wasn't the most prolific hero of all time, but at least she knew her neighbourhood would always be safe as long as she was around.
Lyna Lovejoy crawled out of bed to greet another beautiful morning. After taking a few moments taking in the scenery (she loved the view from her room, it was one of those things that made everyday so worthwhile!), she quickly got dressed and rushed downstairs, to be greeted to that most wonderous of all morning smells: bacon.
"Good morning, honey." her mother said habitually, dishing out Lyna's breakfast as the girl parked herself at the table.
"Hey, mom!" she pipped back cheerfully, before quickly demolishing her meal. "Mmmm, delicious as always! How about sec-" She was cut off as the doorbell rang.
"...Could you get that for me, honey?"
"Alright, mom!" Lyna marched her way to the door, and upon opening it was greeted by the bushy haired, bespectacled ball of insanity she knew as Romana, her best (really, only) friend.
"Lyna. Bank robbery. You up for it?" she whispered gleefully between breathes.
"...Why would I rob a bank, Ro." Lyna deadpanned in response. "That's, um, kinda illegal.
"Oh, you~ Look, I know it's a bit of a leap to go from muggers to bank robbers, but..." Romana wrapped an arm around Lyna's shoulder. "I think our Magical Girl Lovely Anima Spiritia is up for it, don't you?"
"...Ro, for the last time, that name is dumb. It's just "Anima"
, okay?" She slipped out from under her friend's arm. "Look, give me... Five minutes to get ready, okay?"
"Right-oh, Lyna! Let's knock 'em dead! Uh... Well, unconscious. Dead would be going too far, ahah!"
Geez... Remind me why we're friends again?
