Alpha Ursa was confused. He wanted to move his head, but it was not complying. Must be defective. Still, it tried to move a whole bunch of times but was trapped with no way to escape. It made a puppy bear face as Akel's Aura strike cut cleanly into its arm, inflicting much more damage than anticipated. The arm was still attached but was quite useless. The creature roared in rage as it struggled to free itself.




The creep struck by the butterfly knife made a squeaking sound, staggering slightly in confusion. It kept its footing and kept running, however. Right into the wall of flames that appeared a few moments later. The knife was unharmed, laying on the ground about fifteen feet away from the firewall.

The appearance of the wall of flames immediately incinerated a pair of the creeps and caught two more a moment later, including the squeaky one. Poor guy. That left only three creeps left out of the twenty originally. They managed to slow down enough to get around the flames. Just a few feet past the flames, they stopped and burrowed rapidly into the ground and out of sight. Looking around, only the Alpha Ursa was visible on the battlefield. There could be more on the outskirts of the area, but visibility was too poor in the dense patches of trees. The sun was definitely out, and it was officially morning, so it would only be a few more minutes before that was no longer an issue.

The wall of flames began to dissipate rapidly, having served its purpose.

Akel underestimated the armour of the Ursa. Still she wasn't going to waste this oppourtunity that was still in play. Dropping her sword and pulling out her scythe, its position showed that she planned to swing the scythe blade up. The blade glowed with aura and she did an arx based attack, the condensed aura manifesting itself along the same arc as Blood Ignition was going on. The idea was to strike the Ursa's neck and avoid most if not all of the armoured plating that was present on the top.

Slightly embarrassed at that crappy attempt of a knife throw, Graham sauntered over to his fallen weapon and picked it up, shielding his face from the fading flames. Not much else for him to do but observe the fight, for neither his sword nor his semblance would be much use in a team fight. So, he simply just stood at a safe distance and watched, his left hand self-consciously performing tricks with the tanto.

Seeing the Grimm successfully flee Fallow turned to deal with the only remaining threat. That being the paralyzed Ursa. He confidently strode towards it as Akel was winding up. As she swung Fallow prepared another shockwave spell and placed his hand on the ursa's chest just in case Akel's attack failed. Only for Fallow's spell to fail. Shit. "Look out!" was all Fallow managed to get out before rather than blasting out the ursa's chest his palm exploded catching himself in the blast as well as Akel if she couldn't move in time.

OOC: Basically a skip post, because I have nothing to add so you can all go again. Ursa can be auto-hit if you want, he is still trapped.



Meanwhile, on the Bus.

"Waffle! No! Put that down!" Kirkka frantically ran toward the back of the Bus, convinced that the students were not in danger having dispatched most all of the grimm.

Waffle, on the other hand, saw a lone tiny Nevermore fly past the Bus on the opposite window. His predatory instincts kicked in, and he was now awkwardly holding the crate over his head, ready to smash someone's face in with it. You know, the one that says "DANGER: EXPLOSIVES"? It'll probably work out though. What could go wrong?

Akel had to cancel her attack last moment. Slightly annoyed that her very own teammate would make such a stupid move when he knew her semblance. The momentum of the scythe sent her into the air slightly and allowed her to land on her feet after a flip due to Fallow's blast. She dashed to the still trapped Ursa and planned to bring the raw blade of her scythe into its head. The dust disc turning red and fire coming off of the scythe to boost the attack that would be done to it.

"Stay away Fallow!" Akel said before she plunged the scythe into the Ursa's body. The area around the puncture erupting eith fire.

Fallow was skittering back along the dirt and had come to rest when he heard Akel's command. he pushed himself up slightly with a sour expression as he responded. 'No problem there." With a grunt Fallow got his legs beneath him and pushed on one of them to get himself to his feet. He then begun brushing all the dirt off his clothes from his ignoble faceplants into the dirt.

Today was a good day. I won a bet against my fellows to see who could roll down the hill the fastest. Naturally, I won. I've practiced for a long time, and am really good at curling into a ball. After all, it gets really boring around here sometimes. I also got to listen to the "birds" singing for nearly 17 seconds! It was glorious.

Then came the hunters. They came for us. For me. They came and slaughtered my fellows one by one until I was the only one left. And then...

Flames erupted from the alpha Ursa's scythe wound, engulfing him in a bright light. It took only a few moments for the flames to consume him completely, and thanks to the other injuries, he fell motionless after only one roar of agony. Poor guy didn't stand a chance.



The battlefield appeared quite clear now, aside from the smoking remnants of several grimm. The team was largely uninjured, though there were some accidental explosions. On the ground, mind you. There have been no explosions in, on, or around the Bus. Thankfully.

A few minutes passed and the Bus was landed in the now purified clearing. There was a dirt road heading to the town through this clearing, but it was barely visible thanks to all the grass and other weeds taking over as the years went by. Kirkka was on the ground now, staff in hand. Waffle was sitting next to the main door like a sentry, and Mia was unloading a few boxes. Explosives, yay!

"Nice work. Our scrolls are already synced and we will be able to communicate anywhere in the town since it is not that large. Any last questions before you four head out?" Kirkka's voice was very calm, but it was easy to tell that she was very alert, watching for any signs of approaching grimm. There was no doubt they would have some fighting to do while the students were away, though the worst thing will probably just be those Creeps that escaped. Strange that they ran like they did, but Kirkka didn't seem to mention it.

"Yeah, I got one." Graham spoke up. "Might I be allowed to restock up on Dust supplies? Got a couple of cartridges for my weapon, any kind of standardised Ice, Electric and Kinetic Dust will do." In case something tougher than that Ursa showed up, like a Death Stalker or something, he wanted to not run out of Dust mid-fight. Better safe than sorry. He had 6 cartridges for his sword and 5 for his sheath, totalling 6 each for Ice and Electric, 10 for Kinetic if Kirkka approved his request.

Before Kirkka could reply, a loud thump came from behind her as Mia practically dropped a crate onto the ground, flipping the latch on the top and opening the crate. Inside was a large supply of dust cartridges of various varieties. Certainly, some of them would be useful for everyone. Mia spoke while she opened the crate. "Everything in here is for you guys. I brought tons. Maybe too much! That was a joke. There can never be too many explosives."

Kirkka merely motioned toward Mia and the crate after Mia's satisfactory answer.

By now, Airi had exited her self-imposed stasis.  She dropped to the ground, quickly surveying her surroundings.  From her point of view, the stasis was but a millisecond, since her perception of things was if someone turned on a tape recorder, let it run, stop recording for a bit, and then resumed recording.  Apart from the slight, instantaneous gap, you wouldn't have been able to notice anything happened at all.  Of course, Airi had experienced this many times, so it the whole experience was nothing exciting to her.  Examining the Ursa Major's wounds as its lifeless body slowly disintegrated, Airi was quite satisfied that everything turned out well.  "Good hit," she said to Akel.  Airi then walked up to group with the rest of the students and Kirkka and Mia.  Listening in, she didn't have anything further to say.

"Thanks." accepting the compliment from her upperclassewomen. With the ursa finally disentegrated Akel was able to pick her scythe up, examining the edge for amy chips off of the blade. Satasified that the blade didn't have anything of the sorts she let the weapon fold up and carried it in her hand to the rest of them of her teammates.

"Should we have designated times to meet up? Just to make sure nothing happens to anyone." Akel glanced over to her teammate, sighing at Fallow over his overconfidence.
 "Fallow, we're in the same team. You know what my semblance is, I should hope that I don't have to remind you everytime I'm about to use it."

Hearing that the supplies were for them Fallow strode over and drew a vial of fire and kinetic dust so that he could replace his used spells while on the move without having to delve into the dust he was carrying when he heard the admittedly valid criticism he received from Akel. "I misjudged what you were going for. My mistake." Was the only response he gave with a shrug to go along with it before withdrawing a quill and opening the Russet Grimoire.

Graham grabbed what he needed, slotting the cartridges into his shoulder bandolier, and pocketing the Kinetic dust clip for his blade, before nodding. "Ready to go." He slipped on a pair of headphones, but kept it off in case anyone had something else to say, while sliding the tachi in and out of the sheath in an act of slight impatience. His face showed none of it, though.

"Remember. The plan is to contact us when you find the entrance, and not go in until I arrive. Do not forget." Kirkka reminded them of what she wanted but didn't reiterate the potential for danger. She's learned that danger usually entices people to go for things anyway so mentioning it again would not really change anything.

With that, Kirkka turned and left the students to their own devices.




Daylight illuminated the area very well now. The four students were standing a short distance away from the Air Bus, while Kirkka patrolled around and Mia did various things like play with explosives. Waffle looked the most serious as he sat near the door like a gargoyle. Nobody is getting through this door. Except for Mia. And Kirkka. And those other human-things. Waffle nodded to himself, satisfied at his duty.

The area was a large clearing, split down the middle by a barely visible road. Grass and other weeds had grown all over it, concealing it almost entirely. What remained of it was made of cobblestone, making the road quite rough. The dirt along the side of it would be easier on the feet.

There were scattered trees and rocks in the direction of the town, but they were far too sparse to hide much. The town's wall was visible from where they were, so it would only be a short walk there. No Grimm were in sight for the moment. In fact, it was eerily silent compared to just a few moments ago.
