Shattered Minds: Smiles of the Dead
<i>So the Shed is still occupied, at the very least. Nanaka dreads having to speak to someone so eccentric they'd have to block out their windows. Still, it was time to put her special negotiation to use. Nanaka politely knocks on the door before asking</i> &quot;Is anyone here? Pardon the intrusion, I had a few questions about the graveyard.&quot;
Shattered Minds: Smiles of the Dead
&quot;Another one...&quot; <i>A familiar high-schooler notes as she approaches the graveyard, watching the silver ring on her hand closely. Nothing changed, just like before. A fact that only really meant anything to her. There wasn't anyone to greet her this time, likely intended for credit to be taken after the fact. All the better for Nanaka. First, Nanaka walks over to investigate the shed. It didn't seem to have much, which meant she could likely check it quickly before moving on. The mausoleum was much more suspicious, but likely meant a larger dive during which the cause could move to trap her if her guess was wrong.</i>

&quot;I suppose we're finished then. Best to be gone.' <i>Nanaka looks down at the former slug, before letting out a sigh. They weren't going to get paid, but at least the situation was resolved. She'd been in this kind of situation before, so she knew what to do. Remain in this form to make her escape, so she can change back to her casual wear and pretend it never happened.</i>

&quot;Its better to simply end it.&quot; <i>Nanaka remarks as she returns to the top of the staircase, looking down at the slug-like creature. She was well-familiar with formerly-human monsters after all, and nothing good came of leaving them be.</i> &quot;If neither of you have the stomach for it I won't be long. Then I suppose our job is over.&quot;

<i>Nanaka takes a step back, sphere in hand. She lets it form around her body, it felt natural, but strong. Like some kind of shell? It felt durable at least. As a test, Nanaka draws one of her blades against herself, it glancing off the armor, the wakizashi's cutting force turned into little more than a dull impact. One more tool in search of revenge. The girl withdraws the sphere with a sigh. While the armor was powerful, it didn't actually protect her most vulnerable point, the gem on her head. It was hideous too, to the point that the girl could barely stand to look at it. But when the time came. Perhaps. With everything settled, Nanaka hides away the sphere before leaving the basement once more.</i>

<i>Nanaka stares at the body for a while... It didn't seem familiar. It just had something she wanted. It was free too. I mean, it was just there. Its not like she killed them. They could easily sprout and blossom with what they had. It would be easiest to simply take what they need and disregard the individual. After all, revenge itself was the goal. The steps taken to get there.. What came after.. None of it really mattered. Yet something still bothered her. It was fastest and easiest to just take what I wanted. But doing so would be strangling them out. It was only weeds that grew off the sacrifices of others. And Nanaka is no weed. So we will not take anything from them. even if it means burning out and becoming like them, in the end.</i>

<i>It only took a few moments, but with the creature defeated, there was no need for Duplicity any longer. The field of flowers fade away as Duplicity's thorns retract themselves inside Nanaka's soul, leaving the girl entirely untouched and the basement back to normal. Save the puddle on the ground. It didn't seem to be alive anymore, if it ever was. Yet there was one object it... Devoured? Perhaps the real reason Nanaka was brought here. It was somewhat disgusting, but Nanaka would have to put her hand into the creature's remains in order to take out the object.</i>

<i>To an untrained eye Nanaka might have appeared to have the advantage. After all, she is completely unharmed and the creature has been beheaded. But analysis quickly shows this appearance to be little more than an illusion. Now that the weapon is busted, Nanaka finds herself unable to significantly harm the creature. Meanwhile it only needs only lucky strike to end her entirely. As things stand the fight is essentially over. Fleeing, of course, would throw away any image of trustworthiness and reliability that Nanaka had hoped to build and still doesn’t resolve the issue. Of course, all this was well within calculation. It is why Nanaka insisted on fighting the creature alone. So as to better keep her secrets. What was not expected, however, was for the entire job to be a setup. If not for her specifically, then someone like her. True, it was suspicious for such a powerful monster to be in such a mundane place, but there had been little chance to consider that. Despite all this, Nanaka cracks a grin</i> “It appears I have met my match. Very well. I trust you can keep a secret.” <i>The magenta stone in Nanaka’s ornament rapidly shifts to black. The change comes far from natural or gradually, more as if it had always been darkened and one could just now see it’s true colors. The girl’s body goes limp as woody brambles rapidly pour out of the stone, twisting and piercing the girl’s body. These barren weeds threaten to strangle out life itself, yet seem as if they could blossom at any moment. Speaking of blossoms, a field of flowers rapidly unfurls in the basement from the point where Duplicity’s feet touch the ground. Its will temporarily turning the basement around them into a prairie in which all beauty in existence, and some that can only be imagined, reside. With only Nothingness to mar it’s beauty. Finally, the twisting brambles climb over the girl’s head, forming Apple before finally unfurling into a darkened and dull curtain. The symbol of Duplicity. Within its field, Duplicity creates a lashing, writhing bramble to overtake Nothingness. It’s not nearly powerful enough to truly restrict a creature with as much strength as Nothingness, but it need only be a distraction, hampering Nothingness’s vision and movement long enough for Duplicity to drag itself forth and pull the curtain over Nothingness. For all who pass through Duplicity’s curtain are destined for the underworld.</i>

&quot;There there.&quot; <i>Now that Nanaka was alone downstairs, she finishes slicing through the barrier of ice and steps up onto the frozen brew. The girl picks up the small, gun-like object that Shadow had dropped, and calmly walks towards the creature. She gets well within arms reach, after all the weapon only had a range of about one foot. If that's even how its supposed to work.</i> &quot;May you find peace.&quot; <i>And fires the pistol-like gun at the monster while it struggles to free itself</i>
Shattered Minds: An Empty Hello
<i>Nanaka calmly closes her eyes to avoid the worst of the... Sight in the ice cage, before asking her companions</i> &quot;Have you seen enough yet?&quot; <i>The girl remains calm as she steps forward towards the barrier</i> &quot;Then I suggest you return upstairs like I requested before. I cannot guarantee anyone's safety should you choose to remain.&quot; <i>For now, Nanaka draws her blade to slice through the ice, opening an easy path to grab the weapon they received earlier.</i>

I don't know what you were expecting, or why you're here. But you are now. And that is a lovely thing.
