ingyi came to a stop in front of the building, her eyes scanning its name. Besides the name that displayed the name was a symbol of a staff and two snakes curling around it. Taking a deep breath, Jingyi walked up the front steps and quickly pushed open the front door.

While she wasn't unfamiliar with the wounded, seeing how it was part of her job description as a soldier to fight the enemies of her militia, it was still odd. This wasn't the first time Jingyi had volunteered to assist nurses with their chores, but it was the second time. Only, this time she was working in an actual building and not a campground of tents. And since her hours at the hospital wouldn't deal with fighting (unless she was asked to put down a pesky rat or help with a rowdy patient), Jingyi was for once, without Windcutter. Though, she could feel the weight of the the quiet reminder of a friend who she has, unfortunately, not seen in quite the while.

After getting through the small entrance hallway, Jingyi entered a cramped lobby area. There was a plain wooden desk, some sitting chairs, and doors leading to other sections. Stationed at the front desk was a plain-looking woman with brown hair and eyes. In her hands were several papers which seemed important.

It took the lobbyist a couple moments to realize that someone had walked into her "office" and over to her desk. Though, that didn't stop her sour facial expression as she pushed her glasses up her nose, peering up at Jingyi.

"Is there something I can help you with?" She inquired in a challenging tone, her eyebrows coming together as she fixed Jingyi with a hard stare. The woman simply smiled back and nodded her head.

"Oh, there is! I heard that you guys were looking for some volunteers, and I have some free time on my hands!" Jingyi exclaimed, blocking the lobbyist's cold exterior with her usual Jingyi Hou smile, known for its jubilance. With a quiet sigh of recognition, the brown-haired woman nodded to herself and sat down her papers. Looking through a different pile, she pulled out a sheet and asked Jingyi to fill it out before she went to the door on the left.

With a cheery thank you, the redhead took the document and crude pencil that was handed to her only to set it down on the side of the table. Grabbing one of the chairs, she lifted it completely so it wouldn't drag and creak along the floor and set it by the table.

If Jingyi realized that the other woman was glaring at her, she simply didn't acknowledge it as she sat down in her new spot. With obviously loud scribbling noises, the soldier went along her merry way filling out the document. One didn't even have to strain their ear to hear her hum a pleasant tune as she did so.

With a heavy punctuation to the paper, Jingyi signed her name and turned it in the now relieved lobbyist. In her eagerness to jump to her feet, the redhead set the chair skittering back, its legs scraping on the ground, which she ignored.

"Thank you, ma'am!" Jingyi cheered as she waved goodbye to the lobbyist, whose glasses has now slipped down her nose as she watched Jingyi with a look of reproach. A look that Jingyi didn't bother to notice as she walked into the left doorway, prepared for a hard day of helping nurses and whatever hospital volunteers did.

A reek scent of death filled the air, perhaps those who had been at war may be dulled to its scent, but to one who has carefully avoided the battlefields at every chance, it was stunning. The smell of necrosis, the condition of rotten flesh and those that were passed out and couldn’t help but soil themselves in their weakened conditions, and the spoiling blood from used bandages that couldn’t be washed and replaced fast enough. This was merely one cost of war, one that most of the people of Kou couldn’t even phathom. Aeschylus, now adorned in white leather with red trim, and a hood, was coming over as a chaplain, to bring peace of mind during these trying times for the soldiers.

Dylan had been trying to play both sides for as long as possible, but there was a turning point when he had helped Jingyi follow the right path for her. He could align himself with Gao’s ideals more readily and trust him more than he could Yoshiro. The fights would be close and deadlocked, so now one of the few people he trusted was with Gao. He would have to push himself and throw his own weight behind Gao as well now. Every person mattered.

Now he would be taking steps to secure his position within Kou for the future. As he provided spiritual support for Gao’s troops now, he could gain a large religious foothold once the war was over. This volunteering process was but the first step forward.

He had finally made it to the building, and was given common courtesy, a few would even bow to him as he passed, thanking him for his service as if he were a soldier, how little did they know, but it was of no concern. He would just replicate the behavior offering thanks from god.

Aeschylus proceeded down the hall. Something caught his eye, stopping him in the middle of the entryway. Was that…? He shook it off, it was unlikely that his friend would be here. He went to the receptionist, who seemed to change her tone a bit at the sight of Aeschylus.

“God bless you,” Aeschylus spoke, the woman ready with a document and writing instrument for him. “Is this what you needed?” His eyes glanced down to make sure it was the correct paperwork. He set the paper down on the lady’s desk and filled out only the most important information about his identity and purpose, leaving it half filled, returning it to the woman.

The receptionist nodded. “Thank you, I’ll just take care of the little details.” She wasn’t so happy now that she had to do more than the bare minimum, but she wouldn’t be rude to someone from the church, out of habit and social decency.

He followed the path of the woman before him.. And there she was.

“Jingyi!?”

He cried out, almost forgetting that his entire plan was to control her from a young age, due to her potential and use her as a general for his own army in the future. Aeschylus was simply overjoyed to see an old friendly face.

“How long has it been?”

ith each step Jingyi took, her red hair, which was tied back by a white ribbon into a loose pony-tail, swayed with each step she took. She has let her hair grow out a little, and while she has left behind her sword she didn't go without her armor. It was an upgrade than from what she started with: going from a tunic and a breastplate to quality gambeson and silver armor. Her climb in the ranks progressed rapidly, and Jingyi expected herself to grow even further.

“Jingyi!?”

The call caused her to come to a quick pause, her eyebrows furrowing together. It's been a long year since she had last seen him, but she doubted that Dylan's voice would ever become unfamiliar to her. He was the one who helped her more than she could ask for. He gave her a push in the right direction, and he was beyond gracious with his gift of the Skeleton Key.

Whirling on her heel, Jingyi lunged towards the man and pulled him into a tight bear hug, no undoubtedly forgetting about the hard armor she was wearing. Her arms squeezed him tightly as Jingyi took in the moment, her shoulders shaking from how happy she was to see the old friend. The embrace lasted for a mere moment, with the redhead quickly releasing him. Her hands slipped down to his elbows, grabbing them as she looked over Dylan. He was dressed out in leather, she wasn't sure where she had seen the outfit before, but she knew that she had seen somewhat important people wearing it.

"Dylan? God! It's been much too long!" She exclaimed shakily, her grip loosening on Dylan as she let go of him. Her words were quickly followed by one of her jubilant chuckles as she blinked happy tears out of her eyes.

It was such a rush to see Dylan after so long- to see him here in front of her. Parts of her wondered if she would ever meet the Magician again, and it would seem that the question was a yes. She wondered how much of him had changed and if he thought that she changed over their absence. But no, that wasn't important at the moment- catching up with Dylan was to be of focus at the moment.

"Oh, how long? Almost a year? Tah, it just matters that it's been too long! How are you? Where have you been? What have you seen? Oh! What kind of new magic have you learned?"

The seasons had come and gone since Dylan had last seen Jingyi. He couldn’t believe his eyes. It was also refreshing to see someone he recognized, especially one so excited to see him. His optics scanning her newer form. Besides heights, it had seemed that she had also grown as a woman. Unfortunately for him, he wouldn’t be able to take advantage of that without blowing his cover as a priest.

She was like a charging bull, coming straight for him. Aeschylus sensed the rukh inside of him welling up to form a borg to protect him. He quelled those feelings and braced himself with a wince. The impact and subsequent bear hug knocked the air from his lung and he could barely utter a sound other than a sort of exhausted gurgle.Once he was released, a grip still around his arms, he took a deep breath.”Yes, it’s been too long.” His tons dipped as he continue to a more somber subject. “This was has taken too long.”

He positioned himself at Jingyi’s side and put his arm over her shoulder. “I’ve been in Kou, helping the people who have been ravaged by the war… but I’ve realized, we must get to the heart of the problem, not simply treat the symptoms. I’ve also wanted to know about how things are going with you. Do you still have your gift? Has it come in handy yet?”

He nodded as he listened to the rest of her question, she was as excited and as lively as ever. Perhaps she had secretly drank water from the fountain of youth, because her spirit was the same as it always was. “You don’t seem injured,- God bless- so why are you here? Is it some form of rehabilitation?”

ingyi looked up at Dylan as he laid his arm over her shoulder, her brow pricking upwards as she tilted her head. There was an excited smile on her face despite his somber tone, she just couldn't help but be happy that she finally got to see her friend after such a long time. He was right about getting to the heart of the problem, though hopefully he too thought that the heart of it was defeating Yoshirou and his men. It would be exciting to see him fight once more and to show him how much she had improved since they had last met. At the mentions of the gift he had given her so long ago, Jingyi's face seemed to brighten as she eagerly nodded her head. Like she could ever lose something as important as the Skeleton Key. While Jingyi was strong on her own, and without Magic Weapons, the small dandy-handy key was such a use for her.

"Pshhh, me? Injured? Dylan, I don't think there's a force in the world that can put me in the hospital longer than a couple days," Jingyi taunted, her smile turning more proud as she chuckled and winked at her friend. "You don't have to worry about that~! I'm just here to volunteer. I had some free time, and I want to help the other soldiers, ya know? They're sacrificing a lot to fight for Kou, and it's important that we treat them right!" She continued after her laughter died down, her tone as somber as it can get for a woman like Jingyi. "Though, I probably should've brought Dullahan. He can heal people, which is cool and is one of the few things I can't exactly do. Though, I could always try to help the nurses and stuff!"

“Dullahan?”

Aeschylus was a bit confused, did he have a new ally? This could make it harder for him to influence her. IT had seemed as if perhaps it was another magician who was also intune with the life rukh, something he had only vaguely began to touch up on during his short time of training to improve as a mage. He had been negligent in his duties, but he would turn that around now that he had taken a step forward in his own life.

“You’ll have to introduce me, he seem like a wonderful man, but I do question why he isn’t here now.” Aeschylus was slowly putting some shade on this mystery man, while simultaneously forcing her to reveal more about Dullahan. “And as you may have noticed, I have become part of the clergy. I found that they are the back bone and support to a nationalist army. They support their troops behinds the scenes with as much zeal and fervor as the soldiers on the field. It seemed to be a good fit for me, so I went along and have been trying to help others ever since.”

OOC: Sorry for short reply, also not introducing the peeps. I got a sudden wave of sleepiness.

ecause goats can't go into hospitals, silly!" Jingyi giggled, stifling back laughter with an amused smile. "Though, I wouldn't expect you to know that Dullahan is a go- well, he's a Ferrum Carpa which is different from regular goats seeing how they produce static and have special saliva that speeds up the healing process or somethin'." She continued, shrugging her shoulders as she looked at Dylan.

She fell quiet as he talked about his newfound career as a priest in the clergy. It didn't really surprise her, seeing how helpful and kind he had been to her so far. Though, it was still an interesting choice to join an organization such as the clergy. But with no doubt about it, Jingyi had to agree that it was nice to see that Dylan has found a path for himself.

As the pair were chatting, a patrol of five soldiers sneaked up on the hospital. If anyone were to spot them, it would be obvious that they had nothing but an assault on their mind. The officer and his troops were assigned with killing some of the doctors, to ensure they didn't save more of Gao's troops, and to finish the job on the soldiers themselves.

Though, fortunately for the hospital and its occupants, they were heading straight towards a back entrance to the hall that Dylan and Jingyi were about to enter. When they reached the door, the officer had one of his men knock it in upon finding out that it was loud. The bang following the soldier kicking it down echoed in the hallway, and with a loud rush of feet, the patrol rushed inside.

The bang was easily heard in the hallway, with Jingyi jumping in her skin and pulling away from Dylan. Her hand reached down and groped for Windcutter, only it came back empty. Muttering under her breath, she reached into her pocket and pulled out the Skeleton Key, light flashing off its metal body.

Jingyi used her hand to push Dylan back, stepping in front of the priest as two of the opposing soldiers peered into the hallway. Their armor was marked my Yoshirou's enigma, and immediately they spotted the redhead and the clerk.

As one of the soldiers squeezed his way into the corridor, Jingyi half-closed her eyes, concentrating her Magoi into the key, the magic circle engraved on its tooth flashing in response. Fit Any Hand activated, causing the Skeleton Key to shimmer before taking the form of a Claymore. Jingyi quickly raised her newfound blade, her stance spreading slightly as her foe Charged towards her.


With what he hoped was an intimidating yell, the soldier rushed at Jingyi, his sword swinging towards the red-haired soldier. But before cold iron could sting her flesh, Jingyi used the claymore to block the attack with her Iron Guard. Metal clashed against metal only for Jingyi to shove back him back. The man stumbled back, though he quickly regained his footing and raised his sword once more in preparation to attack Jingyi. But the girl was faster, lunging forwards and swinging the transformed Skeleton Key, the blade piercing through his armor through ease.

The soldier's sword clanged against the ground as he let go of it, his hands groping at the hole Jingyi left as she pulled the Skeleton Key's blade away. The man quickly dropped down by his own weapon, and while the stab hadn't hit anything important enough to kill him, there was no doubt that he wouldn't resume the battle.

But, there was still another soldier left in the hallway, who after seeing what the redhead did to his comrade, was obviously not too pleased. Unsheathing his blade, he too began to head over to Jingyi and Dylan. Though, unlike his wounded partner, the soldier didn't rush forwards. Instead, he watched the pair through narrow eyes, ready to lunge at them.

Dylan was dumbfounded for a moment, his facial expression locked. After her chortling, he eased up once more. His head sank, shaking in disapproval. However, he was still smiling, amused the the lady’s whimsical ways. He could only assume that she had also become a tamer during this last year. Quite proficient in any task she was willing to undertake. This only made him more certain that having her by his side was a godsend.

Dylan was surprised that soldiers would come so deep into enemy territory to launch an attack, but a small raiding group to attack injured soldiers would destroy morale, while impeding future reinforcements, at the cost of a few of their soldiers, it would be well worth it. A shrewd move if he had ever seen one. As Dylan continued to analyze the situation, Jingyi sprung into action.

She was still reaching for her dominant weapon, but it had seemed as if the skeleton key would work in this pinch. Dylan stepped back to give her some room. As the illusory magic of the skeleton key came into focus, he was drawing out his staff on his back, tied at his waist.

Pulling out the staff nearly as tall as he, Jingyi, would reach out to push him to make certain there was a safe distance. Evidently, protecting Dylan was on her mind even during these circumstances. As he prepared to cast his magic items innate spell, he hesitated. He dare not allow Jingyi to see his callous side, by possibly killing, at the very least sending a soldier on the brink of death in such a manner.

Dylan raised his polearm into the air with his right. His eyes closed for a second as he channeled the rukh. The priest chanting to himself under his breath. By infusing extra magoi into the spell, he would make sure to knock out this soldier in one shot.

His left fist went up and he threw a pretty poor punch, from a physical stand point, but a nearly transparent image travelled across the hall… a fist? Pummeling the remaining soldier against the end of the hall. The fighter pancaked against the wall, fell forward like a slip of paper.

ingyi poured more of her Magoi into the Skeleton Key, extending the duration of the Magic Weapon's function as she prepared to attack the soldier. Though, it would have seemed that something else had beaten it to her; Jingyi wasn't quite sure what it was that rushed past her, but she could spot the distortion in the air as something almost transparent knocked into the soldier. The momentum of whatever it was flattened the man against the opposing wall, and in an almost comical way, he fell back down.

Looking back at Dylan, Jingyi rose a brow questionably as she smiled mischievously. It was always somewhat entertaining to watch magic, the redhead thought briefly to herself. Raising her blade, Jingyi pointed the tip of it at the Magician.

"Hey, Dylan, let's make it a challenge to see who beats the most enemies!" She challenged with a chipper voice, chuckling for a moment as she lowered the Skeleton Key again. With a wink that hopefully, Dylan would understand as "I'm not kidding about the match", Jingyi turned on her heel and rushed out of the hall.

There she spotted the remaining soldiers heading towards one hall, a sign marking it as the ICU infantry. Upon realizing that they were planning on attacking the most wounded of the hospital, her speed ramped up from that of an average soldier as she used her Exceptional Speed to charge forwards. One of the enemies heard her footsteps and turned around, eyes widening as he spotted the redhead running at him with easily the speed of a horse.

In an attempt to block her advancements, the grunt raised his sword in preparation to attack her. Only, Jingyi slid to a semi stop and flung out her free hand, her momentum adding even more force to her blow. The soldier cried out as the start of Hitoshirenu Kyoda nearly knocked him off his feet. The next strike, a slash of the Skeleton Key, fell him to the ground. Though, luckily for the man, all he suffered was some frightful wounds that would leave him out for the rest of the battle.

The now remaining two Yoshirou soldiers, a grunt and his officer, came to a halt. To them, it was obvious that if they wanted any chance of succeeding with the task handed to them, they would need to deal with Jingyi. With a flick of his hand, the better-equipped man sent his man rushing forwards who, at his order, began to launch a Lunge Attack at her.
