Shade stood back as her teammates took charge of the fight. If they wanted to charge in head-first, she wouldn't stop them. These Vs didn't seem to be too much of a threat, anyway. But that didn't mean she wouldn't take them seriously; Rey took every battle seriously. Right now it was just a matter of waiting for the right moment to strike.
The enemies hovering in front of her looked like – as Sasha had pointed out – mosquitoes, which bothered Rey. She hated bugs. To her, they were pointless, annoying distractions, and seeing three giant ones in front of her didn’t put her in the best mood. Vs irked her enough in the first place – they were contaminating the beautiful Digital World. And Rey certainly considered it beautiful, because it was her escape from a harsh reality. The DgtWld was the perfect haven for an orphan girl and her younger brother, a paradise beyond the computer screen. She loved its crisp cleanness and it’s blue streams of data, despite the fact that the new digital age was the reason for her brother’s death. However, she didn’t blame technology – she blamed the hackers. And someone was trying to wreck the digital world with these Vs.
The thought of a hacker sitting behind a computer screen or typing on their cell phone as they programmed the Vs made Rey scowl. Raising her swords again, she sized up the situation. Devon and Nicholas had started off the attack, while Nathan finished off the already-battered first V.
"Shade...not that it's much of a bother but if your going to attack can you do so soon? I don't think these guys like team-killers..."
But Shade was already moving, narrowing her eyes at the Vs who had just hostilely turned towards Nathan. She had had enough waiting around; now was the time for action. “I’ll get the one on the right,” she called to Nathan as she passed him. Gaining speed as she ran, she launched herself into the air and brought one of her crimson blades down in an aerial strike at the V. The bug evaded it, but Shade wasn’t surprised. Instead she brought her other blade around in a follow up slash that cut it cleanly across the middle. The mosquito was obviously aware of the threat Shade posed to him and was now attempting to fight back, jabbing at her with its long nose. Shade dodged each jab, trying to stay as close as possible to the bug. If she backed away, she would only be leaving more room for it to continue attacking.
After a few more deft sword strikes, Shade finally slashed the bug down the middle, causing it to dissipate into a stream of data. She breathed a sigh of relief, resting for a moment before checking up on the situation with the other V. She had come out victorious, but she was out of breath from dodging and had a few scratches from the V’s pointy nose.
