Ashlei stood perfectly still, receiving two shots from him at first that both pelted into her body: one into her right shoulder and another into her left breast. She shuddered and took a step backwards as the bullets engraved themselves into her body, then she took a step forward and lowered her arms. Kid however was taking no chances as he span around her and rammed his gun into her back, firing yet another bullet that would tear through her body as if she was made of water. Rapidly, Ashleis body began to react badly and she lost her footing. Falling forwards relatively fast, she crashed 3 metres in front of kid and lay there on the floor. She didn’t do anything at first, but then she began to chuckle. Her body was leaking blood all over the floor and joining with the blood already littered there. Her head turned she that she could look towards kid, and then a tongue wriggled from her mouth and stroked the bloody floor. Tasting the blood, she began to do something rather dangerous even for her standards. All of a sudden, the blood on the walls began to shift. The red detached itself from the wall and splashed over into Ashleis direction. Landing all over her body, she lay there in a sort of cocoon of red.
This red mass was churning, as if something inside the bloody mess was sucking the blood in. In the blink of an eye, the blood instantly vanished into her mouth. Her body weirdly, began to move. Kid wouldn’t expect her to keep moving after three successful shots but she was indeed moving. Her legs stood firmly and her body rose up from the floor without her hands to help. She stumbled slightly, then stared right into Kids eyes.
That felts good… Please…do it again…
She grinned, the holes where the bullets had thudded into began to close up and stop bleeding. her eyes, were much more vibrant with a sort of glowing crimson colour. her hair started to flow behind her in an invisible wind and then without any warning…
… she vanished…
Kid froze as the girl was enveloped in the putrid entrails of her last victim. He considered firing shots into the cocoon-like mound of blood, but something had him frozen in his place, unable to move and almost unable to think. As the blood began to move, he managed to take a step back in confused horror. As the girl stood before him, he stared as the last trickle of blood made it’s way down her throat.
Her eyes locked with Kid’s. Every nerve in his body was ablaze with fear and his hands shook violently. A whimper formed in his throat but died before it left his quivering lips. What was this creature that stood before him? Nothing could invoke fear in a reaper, but this girl had done it. She had done it well.
It took a few seconds for her words to register with Kid’s conciousness. He raised his guns, hands still shaking, and pointed them at the girl. He had already assessed the fight, and the way it had played out so far had left him with no other choice. Through the resonance link with his weapons, he began to pass a message through.
Before he got the chance, the girl vanished. The sight of her disappearing took the breath out of Kid’s body and his mind lost focus.
She could be anywhere
