Lyudmila ZimaShe nodded her head to acknowledge Aimi's leave after blasting a wave against the 'cyborg ninja'. It was not the course of action that Lyudmila would have taken but there was not much she could do about it. Even if you were the only one here. You should be prepared to face this gheist alone. At least that was what she thought of it.
"My bad. I owe you one." Lyudmila shook her head as she heard Cleo say that.
"No. We all owe that much to each other. Your injury would have put everyone else in more risk, in this situation we cannot afford that. If I thought that your injury would have had no impact then. Well... That is better off left unsaid Cleo." If it would have had no impact then she couldn't have afforded pushing her out the way. Is what she meant. 'Do what is best for the mission'.
There was excitement again when Lyudmila handed over the 'cyborg ninjas' sword to Cleo. She was unaware if Cleo even knew how to use a sword but she was the one who was in charge for the now and so she would follow orders. She is able to smile in life or death situations. That is good. Her opinion of Cleo had been growing and growing over the course of this day, she had no qualms at this point about putting her trust behind her.
Lyudmila unconsciously flinched backwards as Cleo used her explosive powers. Luckily Cleo's plan had worked out and she managed to take out the 'cyborg ninja' before he was able to recover. Skewering him with his own sword right through his hand and neck. She shook her head, I cannot allow myself to do that every time she uses her powers. Even though I see them in training I still. Her mind always went back to her sister and the fire. Her teeth grated against each other.
Squad B, now down to just the 2 people advanced further towards the waters where the looming giant drew itself more and more out of the waters. When Lyudmila reached the docks she made note of all the men that had been stationed in order to kill Civilians who got too close. If possible we should keep those men around. I don't want to start killing the civilians myself if I don't have to. She thought although the decision on what to do with them was ultimately Cleo's.
A loud whirring noise erupted through the air as the gheist prepared it's attack. She felt the force of it vibrate through everything around her, even herself. Death. That is what that is.
There was no time to think. Lyudmila did not worry about conserving her energy right now, she had to act. And so quickly she formed two objects made out of bone, they were in the form of tower shields, although with a pointed edge at the bottom. She dug them into the ground, one behind the other.
"Get behind them Cleo." It was the second time she had ordered her superior today, however both times she had deemed that it was the only way.
She stood in front of the shields and pressed both of her hands on the ground, in front of her erupted a thick wall of bone like material that was the same that had made the tower shields. This has to be enough... No. I cannot be complacent. From below her arose a second wall of bone like material, even thicker than the first. Four layers of this stuff, she hadn't known anything to break through a single one never mind four.
"I will be back in a moment." Was all that Lyudmila said as she shifted all of the power she could to her legs. All of her leg muscles bulged with power as she crouched down and two large spears were formed in her hands. "RAAAH!" She let out a cry as she jumped upwards. Her legs practically exploding out from underneath her as they were torn apart from the force she used to propel herself upwards out of the range of the attack that was to come. But that was not the end of it.
She could not stop this attack but if there was even a chance to stop the next then she would take it. The spears in her hands enlarged to a rather ridiculous size for her to hold. Next she transferred the power that she had left to her arms, first to her right. As she threw the spear at full force towards the weapon on the gheist's arm, her right arm followed the example of her legs and tore apart. So did her left. Hopefully the two spears would be enough to disable that weapon although she was doubtful. Lyudmila formed a bone like orb around her own body with as much energy as she could spare. It was at times like these she wished that she had Mays resistance to falling. But she was forced to make due with the methods that she had available to her and this bone would at least lessen the impact a little.
