"Monsters?" Yuki asked, uncertain as she ran alongside Momoko, slamming into a lamppost at one point but shaking it off due to Mr. Teddy and continuing regardless. She could beat monsters but it was dangerous and... one person wasn't good for aiming, it was easier with two people, one on either side of her.

Momoko winced when Yuki ran into the lamppost. She knew the child would be fine thanks to her teddy, but it was still unpleasant to see. She mentally chastised herself for not paying enough attention to where the blind girl was going. "Yes, but it's fine, I'm sure they've already sent everyone out to stop them." the white haired girl replied. After a short pause, she added, "Besides, if we run into anything, your onee-chan will protect you."
As the bullets, coins, magical spears and other attacks rained down on the spiders, their numbers began to thin. They were still coming, but they seemed more manageable. Shin and any others that entered the alleyway would notice a strange, unnatural humming noise from around a corner.
"Ah! H-hey, don't try to take me out of the-" Alex just stared at how easily the centipedes were taken down. Well, if it was that easy, they wouldn't have been worth his time anyway. As if the world had read the crossdresser's mind and agreed that the 'fight' was far too easy, two more of the monsters appeared. However, they were larger, faster and their carapaces seemed different somehow. Rather than waiting around to be told to stay out of the way, the Brit leapt from the roof, flapped his wings to gain some altitude and charged towards the monstrous arthropods. As he descended upon the head of the beast, his fist became shrouded in purple flames. The punch connected, cracking the monster's natural armour. In response, the creature whipped its head around, sending the boy careening through the window of a nearby building. It seemed these were tougher than the last two.
Shiro, now free of the kitsune, stepped to Sachiko's side, surveying the group. Or rather, the naked kitsune. Wasn't she wearing clothes, like, two seconds ago? Where did they go? Why was the kitsune shamelessly walking around like that? the zombie found it hard to focus on looking scary or intimidating in this situation. "...Sachi, since when did ATLAS employ nudists...?" Shiro asked, looking rather confused.
"...Can I ask why you want to know so badly?" Minato asked with a shrug. "You seem a bit too interested in my daily affairs. Would you believe me if I said I was looking for cute girls?" As if to prove this latest claim, Minato stepped a little closer to Maylene. And that was it. Proximity was clearly enough to prove that Minato was totally seeking cute girls for... reasons. If Alice weren't a little busy, she wouldn't have minded punching him on Rosalie's and Maylene's behalf.

"..." The next movements were very, very quick. Maylene suddenly had a knife in her hand, having withdrawn it from her uniform in and instant. In only a second more, the tip was just a hair's breadth away from Minato's throat. Maylene could easily just move it forward slightly and end his life. But her hand was steady. Her expression, however, had changed. From the calm and reserved look before, to one of anger. "You will leave now, and never look at my pure and innocent mistress again," she said, her voice remarkably calm, "Or I will puncture your windpipe and from there remove your esophagus, before severing your head entirely from your body." Rosalie stared a moment, before waving her hands and giving an apologetic smile. You could practically see the large sweatdrop dripping from her forehead. "Ah-hah, Maylene, I do not believe that was what he meant. Such actions will not be necessary."
"That's good," Yuki said happily, hoping they were close to home. She was beginning to run out of breath so... if they were lucky, they'd be able to get back to HQ without running into anything mean. Wanting to know how far it was, she once again started examining her 'sister's' thoughts.
Okay, we're almost there, just up here, past the pizza parlour and a right at the end of the street... "Yuki-chan, are you okay to keep going at this pace?" Momoko asked the younger girl, a hint of worry in her voice.
The blade bit deep into the centipede's flesh. The injured beast quickly whipped around, trying to use its massive bulk to send the dragon boy crashing towards the ground. Judging by how it looked at the moment, it probably wouldn't be able to survive another hit. Unleashing a string of profanities, Alex staggered to his feet. The now bloodied crossdresser took a moment to assess his injuries, his left arm was...broken? Or maybe it was just dislocated. Either way, it hurt like hell. The cuts from the glass weren't exactly pleasant either. Taking to the air again, he decided to find something to distract himself with. Namely, incinerating the filthy bug that was responsible for his injuries. A truly frightening grin appeared on his face as he approached his target. The monstrous centipede made its move, attempting to devour the recently tenderised Brit. "I'm not on the menu, you worthless piece of shit!" Alex yelled, flying out of the creature's reach, "Here's a good last meal for you though!" He launched a stream of purple flame into the creature's mouth. Sure, the carapace had been too much, but he doubted the monster's insides were as well protected. As the centipede fell to the ground, its insides slowly burning, Alex simply laughed at the creature's pain. "What's wrong?" he spat, "Not so fucking tough now, huh?"
"..." Minato didn't seem too bothered by the knife and accompanying threat. Mostly because he seemed to have difficulty changing expression. He was most definitely scared. And all he did was call the maid cute... hm, maybe she really, really hated perverts. Maybe he should not lie about that, then. "...I'm not a pervert." Minato pointed out. Meanwhile, Alice floated back to their location, with a thoughtful look. "Hey, Minato, we'd better-" Seeing the situation at hand, Alice sprung into action. Speeding to her human companion's side, she began aiming many punches at Maylene. All of them passing through the maid's body. "Don't you dare kill him you evil villainous demon I'll stop you right here Minato run!" Alice yelled, continuing her assault. Minato simply watched for a second, requesting, "Could you not hurt her? She's just confused, Miss."
