    Seigi Nomikata
    Location: New Fuyuki – Shinto District
    Phase: Evening
    Condition: Critically Injured



    I’m racing. My heart can’t stop racing, eyes constantly looking for a threat. Saber and Justice? Gone. Lancer? Fine, keeping her distance. Risa? Still not here.

    Where?

    -Roof!


    The light I saw earlier, an Archer would have picked us off easily, whatever it is knows where Risa must be. It’s the only reason I can think of. Staying here only makes us an even bigger target and given that Lancer just dominated Saber and her master is in a state, staying still is a death sentence.

    It would be too easy to go home and relax, maybe get one of my arms semi-functional but we’d get picked off and in no state to fight back.

    I can see Lancer moving her lips but I can’t/refuse to hear her. Perhaps my mind is coming up with excuses, probably right, but I can’t leave Risa. This is the choice I’m making. I’m running.

    After two seconds, it becomes clear that calling it running is a stretch. My arms – most likely broken beyond belief now – flail like ragdolls behind me as I move; each clumsy step is a new fresh pain through my system, over, and over, and over, and over-

    But running is the only thing I can do.

    Making my way to the building, I throw myself into the door and it falls to the side with minimal effort, and no sound. Convenient but I can’t stop, I charge to the central elevator and…


    Out of order.


    Frustrated at my predicament, I give the door a resentful kick, ignoring the dullness growing in my toes. I turn back outside and after a glance of the environment of this strange office space that comes off in equal parts; minimalist, desolate and pretentious; I take the only option my brain can think of.


    50 floors up the fire escape later and I am utterly drained, each step felt steeper than the last and the coldness of the night made each steeper step a greater risk of a slip and falling to my death. Every inch of my body is in a different kind of agony, broken bones, exhaustion, dryness, a burning from inside out which I expect are my magical circuits overexerted to the point of run dry.

    So… tirrreedd…

    As I’m certain of whatever adrenaline I had evaporates from my body – I become increasingly aware of my state and that I have nothing to fall back on.

    -The wind is strong.

    The scenery of the night surrounds me, the cold air threatens to blow me over into the city… the city… looks so small from up here. But in the centre-

    No.

    No, no, no-

    The last person I wanted to see appears out of the blue in the centre of the rooftop

    She is evil incarnate, a foe I have no chance of ever defeating, someone who knows my every strength and weakness and how to exploit them. The most powerful magus I’ve ever met and one who is best suited to destroy me.


    "Took you long enough Seigi!"

    My ex girlfriend.

    Before my brain can process, in a shimmer of light beside her appears another girl, standing, yet immobile, asleep, bound, defeated.

    “Risa!”

    The moment I take a step, York moves behind her, holding her like a human shield but a hand to Risa’s throat. A knife. Where did that come from?! The woman merely gives an exasperated shrug.

    “Ah-ah-ah naughty boy. Now, as much as I’ve thought about what I want to say to you after what you did to us,”
    a flash of silver and the knife is a hair’s breadth from Risa.

    No.

    “I get to keep you for that later, a little bonus payment. But right now though, no games, just work.”


    No.


    “This is part of a bigger plan, turn yourself in to me and the side-piece gets to walk, we all know I’m the real heroine of this route.”


    No.


    I refuse, my body convulses at the thought of being with that bitch again spouting that stupid incomprehensible crap from her mouth bu-

    “Oh, in case you’re thinking of doing something stupid, my accomplices are keeping her busy.”


    Lan-

    Accomplices?!

    Wait, I couldn’t hear… could n’t fe ee ll.

    Ah!

    The mo I tr an’t fo-cccccccc kus.

    T

    r
    p
    A


    And she’s gone. Her presence is cut off.

    I open my mouth but I realise something that hits me hard. Yorkie will kill Risa if I screw up. She always was the worst. I want to scream, I want to shout, I want to move but all I can do is swallow.

    In her eyes, in Yorkie’s eyes, I see… affection, I see anger, I see… amusement. Whatever she’s doing, why she’s doing it, I don’t know. But I do know this. She’s toying with me, she’s in control just like she was when we first met and I can’t do anything other than march along to her tune.

    I take a bated breath through gritted teeth, grinding away as I fight against my helpless and decide.

    DANGER! Choice time!

    1. Turn yourself in to Yorkie and these unknown individuals to save Risa. You won't risk getting her killed.
    2. Refuse to turn yourself in, you have your pride as a magus and Yorkie wouldn't do something so...
    3. Try and summon Lancer (Warning, may cost a Command Seal)
    4. Fight Yorkie and rescue Risa by force, it's worked out every single time. (Warning, Seigi has already sustained dangerous injuries, including two broken arms. Due to overuse of magecraft in previous encounter. and draining Seigi's supply.. unknown results may occur if he tries to invoke Nigredo once more.
    5. Bail, leap off the roof and hope for the best
    6. "Do something stupid" (Write in!)


    2 Command spells remain!

    What kind of flirting?

    6. Flirt, this date's comparatively pretty good compared to the other ones

    - - - Updated - - -

    Compliment her blush maybe? Yuno Gasai Pink's all the rage.

    Also lol at Risa being her natural enemy. I wanted to have him Play Dead, but Yorkie's long-distance spells don't make that feasible.

    I planned for Yorkie to be here since before that contest, Risa being the natural enemy was my first clue. Corrin Charisk just happened to work for his scene.

    I will admit that I wasn’t expecting people to pick flirting.

    I'll second Rafflesiac's flirting option. And I can't believe I called Yorkie showing up as an enemy Master without even meaning to (as I thought all the relevant slots had been already used up).

    All 5 Master slots are taken though: Seigi, Reiner, Justice, Slaine, Wizard OC. And Bird's a hack if Daddy Dearest doesn't have the ROKUNIN NO SAHVANTO.

    How else are we supposed to stall for time while Lancer busts through Yorkie's goons/magic traps

    That's what I thought. Weird. I guess Yorkie is just a mercenary then (either independent or hired by one of the Masters). Also if that thing with Sr. comes true, it'll be another thing I totally called a while back.

    6, we need to stall time for Lancer -- but we need to tread lightly, for accidentally pissing Yorkie off will end badly​ for us.
    The Act of dozing off in the afternoon is a luxury indeed.
    Coffee would be nice, though.
