Chapter Seventy-Four: How Many Firearms Can You Store in Your Coat?!
Note: Well, I got my break due to several inches of snow. Although my internet got blown out for the day, so that was stupid. Anyways, here's today chapter. I'll try to finish it today, but it probably won't happen, so if not, I'll warp it up tomorrow, I guess. Also, I'm currently working on links to each chapter, but as you can clearly see in the first post, I haven't finished all of them, mainly the Nui Gaiden Arc. Please use the old method on that until I completely get all links. Another thing, I'm reworking on the character bios, as well as some of their ages will need to be changed as well for some things. A last note, thanks for supporting this fic for seventy+ chapters, and please continue doing so. This fic will last a while(At LEAST 360+ Chapters), so once again, thanks for having supporting it for this long.
P.S.: Anyways, let's begin this chapter.
P.P.S: What a surprise, I finished this chapter.
Miranda licked her fangs pleasantly as she gazed at Rose, whom was frozen in a pillar created entirely of ice. Her hand was frozen in the pillar as well, gripping Rose's throat. The pillar of ice was solid, suspending from the debris-filled floor a thousand or so meters below, continuing to reach pass the slowly-vanishing clouds and even the dark sky. The temperature in the sky was freezing cold from the sudden change in the atmosphere caused by the pillar of ice.
Miranda then promptly licked her blood-red lips as she, somehow, loosened the grasp on Rose's neck. Then, she began casually withdrawing her hand from the pillar of ice. Somehow, her hand managed to pulled pass the solid pillar of ice, and out of it. She sighed and then glanced at the other direction, far down below where debris hanged. Suddenly, the pillar of ice broke, as sections of the ice pillar began descending by the forces of gravity, along with separated segments of Rose.
Hidden by several feet broken stone and sharp glass, Rose crouched on the ground. It was covered with several sharp glass shards. Before Miranda somehow created the pillar of ice, she had replaced herself with a Shadow Clone and then promptly set to finding an area to hide and collect a proper battle analysis on her opponent while her clone had handled the last few minutes in the fight.
Rose's hiding area had offered her completely camouflaging from Miranda; she however could spot Miranda from the sky by glancing out of a small hole. She surprised me..I didn't though she could move faster than me, Rose thought, And that ice pillar, it appeared out of nowhere, that couldn't have been possible. Quickly, Rose skimmed through her memory of the other moments of the battle, pondering. It was just like that fire, it was instantly spontaneous, she thought. "Could it be," Rose pondered, "That I'm in a Genjutsu?"
Then she heard the sound of a falling object from above, as Rose in reply immediately rolled to the left by a few meters as the cluster of stone and glass which had shielded her from view abruptly rained down where she had been. From the impact, it released a cloud of dust which covered Rose.
Quickly, the cloud of dust passed, as it showed Rose in a defensive stance, now holding a total of eight throwing knives in her hands. She glanced at her attacker, knowing full well that the sudden collapsing of the debris hasn't been an accident.
"You're quite close dear," Miranda said with a hint of amused sweetness in her voice, "But not quite on the target."
"Who the **** are you?!" Waro asked, beginning to attempt to use his large scroll. "Isn't it obvious, I'm your debt collector," Patty said mockingly as Yosuke's hand quickly pulled out from his coat, unveiling a sleek black Gatling gun. "I hate debt collectors, and I believe you're a pirate, Patty Bianchi Nero." "I see you've heard of me," Patty said casually as he took a step forward the two Marines. "I'm so honored."
"I thought you got blown nigh-high by Shikiteru," Yosuke replied as his finger pressed against the Gatling firearm trigger. "Naw, I can't die that easily." Patty said as Yosuke pressed his Gatling gun trigger. Instantly, rounds of bullets were unleashed, flying at a rapid rate. "Geez, is this how you treat your debt collectors?" Patty asked, sidestepping effortlessly as the Gatling gun rounds punctured the cabin wall behind him, shooting through the wood.
"I don't have any debt collectors," Yosuke replied as he continued to shoot rapidly, his free hand now in his Marine coat. "They all died."
"Hey, Waro." he said as Waro silently nodded in return and set to his scroll. Meanwhile, Patty continued to effortlessly evade the rounds of bullets as Yosuke in return gritted his teeth in frustration. "Can you dodge this?" he asked as he suddenly pulled out his free hand from his coat, revealing an Anti-Tank Rifle. Patty's eyes narrowed at the sight of the firearm, as Yosuke grinned in return and effortlessly pressed the trigger, releasing the large bullet stored inside of the Anti-Tank Rifle.
"Aw, crud." Patty muttered to himself.
The sound came from above. The scene was complete darkness. Everything was dark, hiding any light. Then a thud came, from a soft punch.
Vatas opened his eyes, to see a dim figure. "A...pimp?" he asked weakly, as his vision promptly restored, as he found himself looking at an annoyed pimp, or more precisely, Menrui.
Vatas found himself leaning on a segment of a destroyed stone wall, next to an annoyed Menrui. Debris and broken glass were around the two. "Where am I?" he slowly questioned. "Don't ask me, I just found you here." Menrui asked, still annoyed. Slowly and weakly, Vatas stood up. His eyes almost immediately darted around him, as he saw only debris. Then he glanced upwards at the dark looming sky, seeing two small darts. Focusing his vision, he then saw two figures, both seemingly feminine, one with large sleek black wings and long claws. The two were both standing on a glass skyscraper, both gazing at each other.
"Who are they?" Vatas questioned as Menrui shrugged in return. The two members of Team Okami glanced at the figures standing on the skyscraper, as Menrui then said, "Do you smell something?"
Vatas nodded, and they suddenly, he found his vision distorted. His vision dizzied, as it then suddenly restored, and he found himself glancing at a ruin of skyscrapers, and Rose and Miranda in the midst of battle.
"What the hell..." he murmured.
"Genkaku Yochi?" Rose questioned, her eyes on Miranda, who maintained her amused smile. Miranda in turn licked her fangs.
"Yes, it's referred as the 'Illusionist's World'." she replied.
