With her head pounding in immense pain and half of her face charred to a crisp, the lightning demon fell fast towards the earth. She couldn't focus enough to work her wings and the Myth knew she was going to crash, and crash hard. Bracing herself as best as she could for the impact, her body slammed through the water of the park's center pond, surrounding the demon and forcing the remaining lightning that hadn't been neutralized from Heikou's power ball to vanish.
Suddenly unable to breathe she furiously flung out her arms and managed to get her head above the water to inhale the damp Tokyo springtime air. It was late April and the weather where they were was still chilly, which made the water frigid. Shivering and still a little disoriented from the fall, the Myth looked around angrily for the Balancer that had dared attack her.

There's a storm rolling in?
A hoodied figure laying on a blanket underneath a remote bridge put down the book she was reading and inhaled the musty scent of the coming thunderstorm from the east. The weather forecaster she'd overheard on the radio earlier that morning hadn't said anything about the possibility of storms for the day, making it a highly suspect event. Nonetheless, she felt prepared. She'd been waiting for that potential moment for a few months.
Well. That wasn't entirely true.

Every member of age in her family had followed the same path before her, and it was finally her turn to show them what she had learned and put her skills to use.

Just let me die,
because it's easier than living,
just let me slip away,
because life is less forgiving.
Don't try to console me,
because I already left you,
don't try to change my mind,
because I warned you, you knew.
Stop the finger pointing,
because you're the reason I tried,
stop throwing around the blame,
because you encouraged my suicide.
Leave me alone,
because you only bring pain,
leave my life,
because it's for my gain.
I'm sick of you pretending,
because I know you coudln't care less,
I'm sick of you hating me,
because you created your own mess.
Forget the apologies,
because they weren't sincere,
forget the excuses,
because they aren't even near,
compensating for the pain you instigated,
compensating for the monster you've created,
compensating for all the lies that've faded,
into the backround, the tears that cascaded,
down my face as I realized,
that you weren't my friend,
you were just trying to use me again.
