Downtown Area - Court of Miracles
"Kitsune has the softest tushie. I'm going to ask Ciara to let me ride on her too next time," she pouted. Lace sat down on her heels, approaching the bottom of a steep hill at a dangerous speed. She didn't need to blink much.
She had turned off from the rest of the group after they left the field gates. The street lights were out and nothing but the roars from Lace’s shoes sounded downtown. Lace stopped every couple blocks after getting downtown. She stopped skating and kicked one of the street lamps and fell on her butt rubbing the now bent shoe. Lace clenched her teeth and waved the flames away. The Star arcana card appeared and shattered in the smoke. The orange glow dissipated and Lace looked up.
" What's going on? Why'd you stop?"
Guilty. She crossed her legs and pointed to a small cafe across the street. "Can't we...," she lowered her finger and shot back at Saturnus. "Can't we get something to drink first? Please?" Saturnus' white eyes went to the roofed, probably abandoned store. His stripes grew hotter looking back to Lace who disappeared from her seat.
CLOSED. WE'RE SORRY.
"What!" she smacked the window and ran around the corner sending Saturnus away as her skates blew her down the next block. Every sign and door had the same hospitality. No burgers. No doughnuts. Not even juice. All the world's treasures snatched out. With nothing to quench her greed Lace, waving her arms with no attachment to her mortal body, now, could only shake the few Skittles from her pocket lint. Out the corner of her eye she spotted two dark figures turning into the next block. Her skates had taken her to another street intersection as she stopped and looked. "Student President?" Lace turned and skated back up the hill and turned to face the block below those figures had taken.
Lace leaned down and was inching down when she heard what sounded like a plane taking off. She flew up the hill and a man riding a surfboard disappeared into the street. Lace turned and skated toward JP, almost whipping her head against the corner lamp. She was a little over twenty feet behind him and ducked her head at the man. "Hey, where's your shirt?" she yelled, but over her shoes and his board no one was hearing anything. She cursed and started looking about the street for a clue. Lace slide to the right side of the street and picked up speed. Sliding a dagger out drew a huge smile. "Sorry guys, but the first Shadow's all me!" Goosebumps waved down her back and she was now on the same block as the man.
Lace was now inside of five yards behind her target at a comfortable speed when she spotted a lamppost at the next block's corner. Randy flashed in her head. Lace slowed down never taking her eyes off the target. As soon as JP passed the crosswalk of the next block, Lace stretched out her hand and shot up the pole. Just as her hand felt the light bulb she let go and had the block behind her shooting through the air. It was all inside three seconds and Lace's right shoe lit up as she spun around into a kick aimed for his back two yards away. "Let's do this!" she yelled, loud enough for the whole block to come and see. Shadows ain't fire-proof.
