Hitting the ground far more gracefully this time Saffron rolled just before impact, minimising any further damage to her knees Saffron quickly made her way through the crowds. The action made her quills to stand up, causing old prejudices to resurface and Saffron found herself stonewalled a few times but made good progress once she got to the side of the street. Her console beeped as Avery's message played and Saffron replied breathlessly 'Understood. He's right by.....FUCK'

Distracted Saffron almost lost her target, only making Aurum out of the crowd as he moved against the flow of people towards a light-post. Not immediately grasping Aurum's plan Saffron still knew she had to stop him rushing forward Saffron hoped to reach her team mate before whatever he planned would eventuate and rip the frozen fish from his hands.

As Topaz lied on the ground she heard her scroll buzz with a new message from Avery. Whipping it out of her pocket she read his instructions regarding the kill switch, but at first had no idea what he was on about before remembering what it was. Since she can't smell any banana-ish smell she assumed the battery/kill switch that she shoved in there to absorb any charge hadn't punctured or exploded yet so it should work. In order to make doubly sure that it hadn't fallen out she turned her head to get a visual on the fish, in the process noticing it was very much frozen. Meaning the battery was frozen. Meaning if Aurum found a way to quickly unfreeze the fish and battery it would not end well for the fish.

Topaz sent a reply back to Avery,"Might not work if the fish is quickly heated up. One way to find out."At the moment of hitting send she saw Aurums boot cross over her head and as he began tinkering with the lamp post. "Please don't do this."She said standing up and stretching out,"Itd be nice not to spend all weekend in detention."

"Don't you worry one bit, Topaz. I'm a genius at covering my tracks." He replied, unscrewing the first screw in the panel. A larger crowd was gathering and one guy even seemed to be poking the fish with his spear. "Ooh, juicy. Now there goes screw number two."

Dropping the screws on the ground Aurum also began pulling out two wires and gnawed off the rubber with his teeth near the ends to make contact points. Third screw down and he carefully pulled out two nails that he planned on jamming steaight to the lamp circuitry to connect his battery to. Unscrewing with one hand and twisting copper wires over a nail with the other, he managed to save time and get the panel off just as he prepped his dust canister for the surge.

"Well. wish me luck!" Aurum said, slamming the nail into the circuitry and activating the dust canister.

The lamp post flickered violently for a few seconds, sizzling and sparking here and there around the frozen fish  and even started to thaw it out, unfortunately the damned thing short circuited and popped the bulb just as Aurum exhausted his dust.

"What! That was supposed to work! and...is that banana i smell?" Aurum cried, hands pulling at his spiky hair. "Oh screw it guess I'll just shoot the damned thing."

Finally realising Aurum's plan with the light post Saffron redoubled her speed, it wasn't enough but luckily the light post didn't seem to work. Closing fast Saffron had to leap over the crowd which was gathering around her problematic team mate to maintain her speed. Now aiming to crash Aurum into the exposed wiring of the light post as a little bit of payback as well as pinning the troublesome boy down. Talking over the exclamations of the crowd and more than a few racial comments which Saffron ignored she spoke breathlessly from her sprint. 'Aurum, give me that fish or I'll use your face to replace that covering.' Regardless of her team mates responce Saffron will continue running forward for her crash tackle, she was due some catharsis she reasoned.
