Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust [Flashback]

Post by Ace on Mon Mar 02, 2015 11:08 pm

"You know Zoe, they say that all life originated from Dust..." Ace drew her Katana solemnly and steadied her footing on the massive aircraft beneath her. It was the dead of night when the two Faunus landed on the ship and half the crew was probably asleep, so Ace didn't even bother being quiet all the way on the other side of the thick walls of the cargo aircraft. "If we really believe that, then it's amazing how we just use the stuff and take it for granted like it's nothing. Perhaps we should teach those humans just how precious it really is. They say you never know how much something means to you until it's gone." She turned to her partner calmly. "Are you ready to take the lives of these bigot humans? You won't have the option to turn back once we're inside."

Zoe, though solemn and deep down unsure if this was the right thing to do, pulled on the secondary hilt of Storm Centurion, the railgun humming pleasantly and thunking at the action to signal the chambering of a round. "I'm ready, Ace..." She said softly, her pinkie finger itching over the trigger momentarily.

"Then let us begin!" The fox drew her mask on to her face and a storm of cherry blossom petals swam off into the sky. A red ring at the end of Kyubi's blade shattered, creating millions of tiny sparks. The sword turned and caught the red sparks on its metal before being swung up in the air. It's blade angled downward, Kyubi erupted in flames and was promptly driven into the hull of the ship. In time, a rectangular opening was carved out, and Ace calmly hopped through it. "Bury your grief and prepare yourself. We spare no soul aboard this vessel."

Zoe followed after placing her mask over her face, switching Storm Centurion to its zweihander form with a push of a button. She looked at Ace expectantly, waiting for her to lead.

"We need to get to the cargo hold. Make sure to keep your head low, and your footsteps quiet." Ace whispered. She sank into darkness and began moving towards the rear of the ship. Once there, Ace directed Zoe to the loading hatch at the very back of the ship. "Open it. You can break the lock mechanism with a well-placed shot. I'll get the Dust to the opening." The lack of guards was pleasent, if not unnerving, so Ace readily began shoving crates towards the hatch.

Zoe nodded at that, switching Storm Centurion back to its railgun form. She heft the weapon, left hand on the smaller hilt, right holding the weapon steady with the larger one. She locked around for the locking mechanism, finding it and waiting for the hum to reach a certain pitch. She closed her eyes for a moment, then opened them, pressing the trigger and blowing the locking mechanism to pieces.

Ace finished shoving the boxes around and drew her weapon, noting the eight remaining rings on the blade. "I'd say we have about 5 seconds before the guards get here. Ready for some real fun?" An alarm began to blare throughout the airship, obviously clarifying the presence of the two girls. "We're going for the cockpit, remember that." Just then, the doors to the cargo hold slid open, revealing several armed men.

"White Fang! Use lethal force!"

Zoe spun on her heels, at the same time pulling back the hilt to chamber another round. Her pinkie pulled down on the trigger, the round bursting out from the chamber and starting to accelerate down the rails. It left with a small shockwave, flying towards the group. It hit one of the Atlesian knights, the force of the impact blowing the robot apart and sending its remains scattering out towards the soldiers.

The confusion and panic among the soldiers and the recoil in the robots gave plenty of room for Ace to get in between the group. Her palm pressed roughly against the pommel of her sword and the end of its blade shot out, piercing the head of an Atlesian Knight. Using the weight of the machine, she pulled herself into the group by the chain of her sword. Still mid-air, Ace removed the tip from the robot, fixed it back in to the full blade, and spun in a violent yet elegant fashion, breaking an earth Dust ring. Gravel shrapnel and sand hailed upon the group, gruesomely battering anything without a helmet. The remaining Knights' vision was strongly obscured by the damage in their visors, making them easy targets for Zoe to mow down.

Zoe pulled started strafing the knights, moving right to left and alternating between firing and reloading. After 6 more shots, she pulled back on the hilt and there was no sound to follow. Rather than risk being a target while reloading, she switched the weapon's form, charging into the group with Storm Centurion in its sword mode, effortlessly wielding the large weapon with both one and two hands.

"Make your way to the cockpit, Zoe. I'm going to ensure that we tie up all our lose ends." Ace's expression was cold and sadistic as she plunged her blade into the heart of a fallen soldier. Using hand gestures, she urged Zoe off towards the front of the aircraft, reassuring her that she would follow behind soon enough. "Quickly."

Zoe took a glance at the soldier Ace had just killed, then nodded grimly, rushing through the door the soldiers had arrived through and making her way to the cockpit. She took the requisite time to swap magazines, slipping the empty next to several identical ones on her belt. She stopped in front of the door to the cockpit, readying herself to lunge forward and spear Storm Centurion through the door.

The door opened before Zoey could even take action, and a normal human wearing pilot gear was at his knees, begging for his life to be spared. Within the cockpit there was an additional chair, although no co-pilot was in sight, and a wide window that gave an open view of the Vale Hanger, which was, unfortunately, very close. The pilot was practically screaming with fear as he begged the Faunus to let him live.

Zoe froze, looking at the begging man in confusion. Should she spare him? Kill him and cover their tracks? Part of her was screaming that he was a filthy human who deserved what he got, but another part of her reasoned that he was just a soldier, doing his job. He hadn't done anything to her...

Before Zoe had made up her mind, a blade shot past her, impaling the man. The chain protruding from it said it belonged to Ace, and, as thus, the Temptress walked over to the man to retrieve her blade. She stepped over his body leisurely and headed to the controls. "I would hold on to something, Zoe."

Zoe nodded quickly, only momentarily fazed by the man's death. She grabbed on to a nearby support rail, digging the tip of Storm Centurion partways into the floor and waiting for Ace to do whatever it was she had planned.

A loud shot rang out across the sky, like the whistling of a mortar shell just before it hits, which is sort of what happened more-or-less, only it was Puca, not a bullet casing. They probably figured that out though, when he crashed through the windshield of the air-craft. Glass shot everywhere, as the tremendous wind from out-side depressurized the whole area. When he stood up, shaggy hair blowing every which way, and eyes shining yellow, he pointed his gun directly at Ace
"Hey guys! Hate to tell ya this, but what you are doing is illegal! That pretty much gives me free license to shoot you in the head!"

"Fly the ship up and stall it. I'll deal with our unexpected guest." Ace stared at the monstrous looking Hunter in front of her, hardly moving or making any sort of facial expression. Not that he could see her face through the mask even if she were making a face of some kind. A glowing white ring of Dust burst and whisked up into the air with several cherry blossom petals, and Ace made violent advance on Puca.

Zoe quickly took the controls, steadying the ship and hitting a few buttons to engage the autopilot. She swiveled in the seat, switching Storm Centurion to its railgun form and aiming out the door, watching as the two moved to fight one another.

Puca was momentarily blinded by the dust, but that meant she couldn't see either. He fired one hand canon into the cloud; if it didn't hit Ace, it would still rip through the hull easily, possibly damaging the fuselage. He quickly pulled off to the side like a bull fighter, flanking Ace. He swung the other canon like a mace made from two feet of solid steel, aiming for Ace's mid-riff. A medium height blow like that would be hard to jump over or dive beneath.

Both the bullet and the swing seemed to pass through Ace as though she weren't even there. Her body even seemed to be formed out of some kind of mist. She materialized shortly after the combo, and swung the pommel of her blade down at Puca's head, hoping to take advantage of the likely confusion and surprise at her uncanny abilities. Even if the attack missed, she had brought herself close enough to the man to speak to him directly. "Let's have a little bit of fun."

Zoe looked frightened at what appeared to be a matchup between two equally skilled fighters. She swung Storm Centurion back and forth, trying to get a clear shot out against the Hunter, but her hands were shaking so violently she didn't know if she'd be able to.

Puca luckily had enough agility to avoid the pommel swing, simply rolling under it, and coming back up on the opposite side of ace. He swung one canon again, while pointing the other towards her gut and firing.
"Could you have picked a more cliche thing to say before we fight? I mean, I can work with that, but it's not what I'd call witty banter."

Ace spun to her side, stepping between Puca's arms to avoid the canon fire. She brought up her sword and held it vertically against her back to block the melee all the while sending a violent jab directly towards the bottom of the Huntsman's jaw. He'd have to hop himself back with his gun's recoil to avoid the hit or pull some fancy acrobatics.

And fancy the acrobatics were, my friend. Puca pulled to the side at an incredibly sharp angle, using her out-stretched arm as leverage for him to swing under her and slam his canon towards her head in a vicious upwards-blow. Using the opposite one as a pendulum so he could maintain his balance after that maneuver.
