Bonus Round 5: Clue

Clue


This round is CLOSED as of 7PM EDT on 5 August. Late comments are screened and will not receive points.


Sometimes, all you need are a few little details to imagine something bigger. This round is inspired by a classic board game with a cast of colorful characters, but for SASO your only limits on "who", "where", and "with what" are what you can imagine (and the SASO fandom list, of course)!

This round closes on 5 August @ 7PM EDT. (Countdown Timer.)


Please read this whole post before commenting to ensure that your team gets the most points possible. (There are changes from last year!)


RULES
  • Submit prompts by commenting to this post with the format of a Clue mystery - "[character] in the [location] with [item]", along with any ship/ot3/etc. from one of our nominated fandoms.
    • Example: Sawamura Daichi in the teachers' lounge with the Hello Kitty! lunchbox
    • The person in your prompt MAY be a member of your ship, but is not REQUIRED to be part of your ship. They must still be a named character from a SASO-nominated fandom.
    • Your place must be a physical location, not a state of being or a state of being. However, this location is not required to be real, nor must it be from the same setting as the characters.
    • The "item" used must be a physical object that the character can hold or manipulate.
    • Unlike the board game, your prompt is NOT required to imply murder. The scenario implied can be anything at all! (As always, please tag properly!)
    • Your prompt MUST include some kind of relationship. Platonic relationships are indicated by an "&" between the names (e.g., Natsuo & Yuzuko). Non-platonic relationships use "/" (e.g., Natsuo/Yuzuko). Please don't say "Any pairing," either!
  • Fill prompts by replying to the prompt with your Clue-inspired fanwork.
  • Remember to follow the general bonus round rules, outlined here.
  • Here is a prompt/fill index for your convenience.

Uh this is ridiculous, I'm sorry.

***

It wasn't out of character for Kenma to refuse to go along with Kuroo to Karasuno's cultural festival, even though it would have meant hanging out with Hinata, but Lev didn't mind being Kuroo's plus one for the day. A field trip sounded like a good way to kill a Saturday, and he liked the train anyway.

Things became a little more clear when they made it to the first years' hallway and found out that Tsukishima's class was apparently doing a maid cafe, and Tsukishima was their incredibly grumpy greeter at the door.

"I'm going on break," Tsukishima snapped to Yamaguchi as soon as he caught sight of Kuroo.

"Perfect," Kuroo grinned, undeterred. "Lev, I'll text you in a bit, yeah?"

"Uh-huh," Lev said, exchanging a knowing eyebrow waggled with Yamaguchi.

"Hinata's class is just down there?" Yamaguchi pointed down the hall. "I hear they're doing a circus and it's pretty good."

Sure enough, Hinata's class was doing a makeshift circus, a couple of guys in clown outfits doing gags when Lev wandered in. It wasn't hard to spot Hinata, in the corner having a whispered argument with Kageyama. Hinata was wearing some kind of footy lion costume, and Kageyama was apparently supposed to be the lion tamer, not that that seemed to be going particularly well.

"Lev?" Hinata broke off arguing when he spotted Lev, then grinned and waved wildly. "HI, LEV! What are you doing here? You're just in time for our act!"

The chair and the fake whip were a little over the top, but Kageyama got Hinata to jump through a hula hoop in the end. Flush with success, Hinata dragged Lev out to find some food during his own break. They ended up sharing yakisoba and takoyaki, Hinata offering to show Lev their gym and club room when Kageyama deserted them to find his favorite vending machine.

"Not bad," Lev said when they were standing in the club room's door way. "And you make a surprisingly decent lion, for a crow."

He reached over to tug on the lion's mane, but Hinata chose that exact moment to finally yank his hood down, and Lev's hand landed in Hinata's hair instead. There was an awkward pause were they stared at each other, but Lev didn't move his hand, the tufts of Hinata's hair sticking out every which way, warm and soft under his palm.

Hinata grinned, and it reminded Lev of the grin Kuroo had given Tsukki, keen and full of trouble. He butted his head up into Lev's hand. "Wanna hear me purr?"

They're probably in a drugstore or combini but it's all the same. Also my dad is super tall so I never lost him in Japan for this exact reason.

***

Lev's eyebrows climb into his hairline, higher and higher as Hinata tips quite a pile of condom packages into his shopping basket. Lev has a lot of questions, but the most pressing one falls out of his mouth first.

"How were you holding all of those?" he asks. He looks at the pile of slick wrappers and more questions arise. "There's like ten kinds here, man. What do you think we're gonna do?"

"I don't know what kind does what!" Hinata hisses, cheeks going pink. He keeps glancing left and right in the store aisle as if they're going to get caught by their moms or something. "You know so much, you should have come with me!"

"Everyone can see my head above the store shelves," Lev answers reasonably. Meanwhile, Hinata doesn't have that problem at all, and maybe he's not as flustered as Hinata is acting, but they are in Tokyo and the odds of Lev running into a person he knows in the drugstore isn't zero. He reaches into the basket and rifles through the condoms. "This is flattering, Shoyo, but I'm probably not as big as these sound." One of them is labelled Mega Big Boy with a picture of an elephant.

"You're super tall, though!" Hinata makes an exasperated noise and really, if he blushes any harder, he might pass out. It's adorable. "Can we just get out of here, please!"

Lev really wants to agree, but they have to get some actually useable condoms. "Come on, let's go figure out it. I'll come with you this time, ok?"

It goes a little smoother with both of them, although there's an awkward conversation about whether it matters whether there's a flavor or not and what that flavor might optimally be, and an even longer awkward pause when they discover the box of Rilakkuma condoms.

"They're so…happy," Lev says. "And there's only one? Must be a popular item, I guess." Lev tries to restrain himself, but he just can't. "Wrap your bear before you enter the lair, right?"

"Lev," Hinata insists, eyes pleading, and Lev chuckles at himself as he puts the box down and chooses something much more nondescript (but strawberry flavored). "Thank god, let's go already."

As it turns out, there is actually something worse than running into their moms here, because at the end of the aisle is Kuroo and Yaku, Yaku with his eyebrow raised and Kuroo with his hands on his hips.

"Oh ho ho," Kuroo says. "And what brings you cute little kouhai to this particular aisle, hm?"

Lev can feel his cheeks flushing - stupid half Russian complexion - but even as Hinata is melting down beside him, Lev manages to meet Kuroo's eyes. "Couldn't I ask you two the same thing, senpai?"

When Tatsuya wakes up the thermostat’s set way down to freezing, though he supposes considering it’s Arizona that it’s probably refreshing for Atsushi (and, unlike in his house, he doesn’t have to pay for it). It’s cold and he doesn’t want to move out from under the covers, but ideally Atsushi would still be here. He’s in the shower; at least the water’s running, and Tatsuya struggles into a sitting position, wrapping the blankets tighter around him. His suitcase is all the way across the room (and all the clothes in there are probably colder than the center of a carton of ice cream) but Atsushi’s shirt is next to him on the bed, and when Tatsuya touches it it’s still warm.

He puts it on, rolling up the sleeves until they don’t dangle off the ends of his wrists, pulling it closed across his chest rather than buttoning it. He’s still a little cold, but the shirt helps, warming and covering him, and it smells like Atsushi. It’s nice, Tatsuya thinks, burrowing back under the covers and dozing back off.

“Tatsuya, hey.”

Atsushi’s hair is still wet, dripping on the towel around his shoulders; he’s wearing his suit pants and nothing else and that’s a lovely sight to wake up to, especially now that this time around Tatsuya’s a little more actually, well, awake.

“That’s the only shirt I brought.”

So maybe it wouldn’t do to have the Suns’ star player leaving his room with a suit and no shirt in the morning, but, well.

“I’d take one of yours, but.” Atsushi shrugs; they both know that’s essentially impossible.

Tatsuya sighs, taking off the shirt, exposing his bare chest to the air before he pulls the covers back up. It seems a little bit warmer in the room (though the sound of the air conditioner running cuts through the background), especially when Atsushi eases back into bed with him, practically radiating warmth like a space heater. He unrolls the cuffs of the shirt, but doesn’t put it on right away, draping it over the bedside lamp.

“Got other plans?”

“For now, maybe,” says Atsushi. “But I want breakfast.”

Whether he means that literally or not is unclear, from the way he keeps one foot dangling off the bed and then the way he kisses Tatsuya, rough and wanting with his mouth open and hand cupping Tatsuya’s chin, fingers sweeping back over Tatsuya’s jawline. But that’s fine; Tatsuya’s okay with either option.

Normally, Atsushi wouldn’t let anyone catch him. He’s been swimming through these waters his whole life, knows how to navigate them up and down, avoid humans with their nets and rods and hooks, stay out of the territories of aggressive schools of fish. He was born for the saltwater but he can live in rivers, so long as he lets them drain him out to sea once in a while and get his fill there. There are fish that do that, salmon who swim upstream to breed; Atsushi’s pretty sure there’s no inborn cycle forcing this on him. It’s just the way he prefers it, the quiet of the river, swimming through the middle of fields and cities and highways.

He’s seen this human before from his vantage point in the reeds, where his hair blends in enough with the green of the plants and the water that he’s not seen unless you’re really looking for him. The human is always sitting on the edge of the river with a net, always waiting for something, patient. He’s very pretty, posing as if he knows someone’s watching, mole on the side of his face, beautiful mouth. He is still a human though, behind all that beauty is probably the same human entitlement to the entire earth that leads them to destroy it, wanton cruelty that they don’t even realize.

Atsushi lets this human catch him anyway. At the very least, he’ll figure out how to free himself; at the most he’ll get to talk to him. Get to see his face make some other expression, figure out who he is and why he’s here. (Not like Atsushi cares, but he’s kind of bored right now.) He lets the current carry him, catches his fingers on the netting, and tugs until the human hauls him out.

He’s strong enough to lift Atsushi all the way out, even though he’s small (large for a human, perhaps, but noticeably smaller than Atsushi, so small). He looks disappointed almost, as if this net, big enough for merfolk, does not contain what he’s looking for. He masks that with polite questions and introductions, apologies and an acknowledgement that he’d been hoping to catch something else. He says trout, but it’s an obvious lie, one that Atsushi isn’t going to call him on just yet. Better for this human not to know he knows.

He lets Atsushi go without asking for anything, demanding a wish (as if Atsushi could grant it) or trying to tag him like those so-called conservators do. Atsushi doesn’t say as much, but he might come back. To talk with the human a little more, dig a little deeper.

There's something incredibly satisfying about summoning a god onto the field.

It feels as if the clouds themselves part as he summons The Winged Dragon of Ra, and the heavens shake with its cry, spreading its golden wings and standing on the field, waiting to fight for Atsushi, ready to take any command that he gives it.

He smiles at his opponent from across the field, some other contestant that he'd never bothered to learn the name of, whose name won't be important after this duel, after all. Atsushi will make sure of that, in one way or another.

There's a darkness that simmers just under the surface, and he can feel it responding to some sort of call. It's always the strongest when he has The Winged Dragon of Ra on the field, or when he's noticed that one of the other two god cards have been summoned during a duel between other people. Like he's being drawn towards the very gods themselves. It's a nice thought, to have that sort of power notice him and seek him out. He'll go soon, he thinks. He just needs to crush this opponent first.



He doesn't realise that he's changing until he pairs up with Tatsuya later. They've both been successful on their own but they've always been more successful together, Atsushi knows this from experience. They crush everyone who stands in their way, collecting ante and locator cards as they go.

"I was worried for you," Tatsuya says casually, as they walk beside each other.

"I don't need you to," Atsushi replies, even though he knows that's not going to change a thing. "Just worry about yourself."

Tatsuya looks at him, and he's smiling when Atsushi meets his eyes, but there's something troubled in his expression. "I feel like you've changed, Atsushi."

"In a good or bad way?"

Tatsuya presses his lips together into a thin line. "I'm not sure yet."



As it turns out, Atsushi is changing for the worse. He feels it himself, whenever he's reaching the tail end of a duel; the desire to not only beat his opponents but to crush them entirely, to make them feel so insignificant that none of their efforts matter at all.

He manages to push the feeling down, until Tatsuya ends up getting hurt. Atsushi sees him drop and immediately rages.

When he comes to, he's not the same person any more. He has the kind of headache that typically comes from his hair being pulled in the wrong direction, but it won't go away no matter what he does. More than that, he feels an overwhelming amount of anger.

He'll show everyone just how futile it is to struggle, when their loss is already guaranteed.

They can fight against Atsushi all they want, but there's no point in fighting a god.

“Why’d he go to a Christian high school, anyway?” says Atsushi.

Alex sighs. Tatsuya’s soul is swirling around in its jar; she’s going to need to reconstruct his body now and that takes fucking work. It’s not like demons can automatically create physical forms, especially not when they’ve inhabited one for so long the way Tatsuya has that it’s become part of the way they view themselves, part of the way others view them. Tatsuya had made it through two years of Christian high school, yes, but he’d aroused the suspicion of a certain priest who’d chased him across the ocean in an attempt to exorcize the body. The damn fool hadn’t realized that the body was Tatsuya’s creation; there had never been some pure original Tatsuya Himuro who would awaken once Tatsuya’s soul had been taken out.

Demons aren’t so forgiving; until someone has wronged them or unless they’re under orders from a human master they can’t harm humans, but now Tatsuya’s got full range to exact his revenge, no longer bound by a certain section of magical restrictions. If they can restore him, which. Alex hasn’t done anything like this in a very long time.

“Tatsuya likes a challenge,” Alex says, glancing pointedly at his soul in the jar.

Without concrete form, it can’t show the fake contrition that Tatsuya loves so much, and fuck. They need him back.

“Did his physical form leave anything?”

Atsushi sighs and reaches into his pocket. The finger, the original finger grafted to the magic, the closest to a real Tatsuya Himuro that there ever would be. The ring, its protections not enough for whatever nasty spell the priest had come up with. She’s probably going to need Taiga for this, too. And a lot of water.

“Is it,” says Atsushi, and then he bites his lip.

Alex has never seen Atsushi truly worried before, but she can tell the emotion when she sees it, the way he sets down the soul jar so tenderly. Tatsuya can say all he want about how demons shouldn’t be loved, but the counterpoint continues to be proven every day, and not just by her. She pats Atsushi’s shoulder.

“Don’t worry. We’ll have Tatsuya back in no time.”

Atsushi nods, halting but determined and sure. Alex fishes out her phone to text Taiga; the explanation can wait until he’s here. Until now, they can watch Tatsuya on the table and gather everything they need (thankfully, spellbooks are all on the internet now so she doesn’t have to wait; the longer between the destruction and reconstruction, the less effective it is). And then they’ll have him back, physical form and all.

Tatsuya’s always pushing at the limits, smuggling in things that he shouldn't have, especially as a member of the student council (he claims to not hold himself above the law, and it’s not like he doesn’t overlook other students’ transgressions when he’s feeling generous or like the school rules are dumb; so far he hasn’t been caught or if he has his pretty face and excuses about being a foreigner can get him by). Atsushi’s pretty sure he’d be baking pot brownies if he knew the right kind of dealer, even considering his fairly deep understanding of the differences between American and Japanese weed culture.

But he’s got most of a handle of expensive vodka in the trunk under his bed and he’s drinking some from a bottle in the common room right now, giving no indication of being drunk. No flushed face, no loose words, no large gestures, no reticence. He just is, sipping his vodka like it’s the water that’s supposed to be there.

“Thirsty, Atsushi?”

Atsushi shrugs; he doesn’t like any of the liquor he's tried. A sweet cocktail might be nice, but he’s never had one, or a chocolate beer; but he’ll reserve his opinion until he tries one. Still, this is more of a dare and Atsushi’s no chicken. He takes a sip from the bottle.

The vodka goes down easier than he’d been expecting, smooth in his throat but still burning and numbing at the inside of his mouth. He doesn’t visibly wince, at which Tatsuya seems pleased.

He’s had half the bottle by the time they go to bed and still seems no worse for wear; his breath is disgusting, lips numb; his kisses are a little bit looser and he’s dropping a little bit more of his facade, but Atsushi’s more in line with the idea that he’s using alcohol as an excuse to be more open. He’s still in control; he wouldn’t cede it to the vodka like this. And he’s still the same guy pushing Atsushi to the bed, still the same exacting touches on Atsushi’s skin. Who’s he fooling? It’s not even himself, but that’s not Atsushi's problem. If it takes some alcohol for Tatsuya to pretend he’s getting through his issues, maybe that will translate to really getting through them. Atsushi’s not going to wait around forever for that, but if Tatsuya smiles at him like this more, it might be worth it to conjure up some more patience.

“Come here, Atsushi,” Tatsuya says.

Atsushi obeys, gathering his skirt and standing up from where he’s sitting on the edge of the bathtub, and God he is a vision. The dress, long on anyone, that had to be let out to make foot-length on him, nearly dragging on the ground; the spaghetti straps revealing his tanned shoulders from spending all that time shirtless on the beach; the gigantic wingspan; the dress’s high waist. His hair’s still tangled and let out, brushing his shoulder blades (Tatsuya wants to see how long he’ll go without cutting it, how long the nuisance of actually getting up and cutting his hair outweighs the nuisance of his hair getting everywhere; so far it’s held a good deal).

And he’s got no makeup on, either. Tatsuya doesn’t have much experience with it himself, but putting on lipstick can’t be that hard; he’s seen his mother do it often enough, and the salespeople at Sephora hadn’t looked at him too curiously when he’d bought several different shades of eggplant purple lipstick. It’s darker than Atsushi’s hair and eyes, and Tatsuya doesn’t know much about matching skin undertones or any of that but it’ll look good with his summer tan, and something that matched him exactly (other than, like, eye makeup) would look too weird, like something out of some kids’ cartoon.

He uncaps the first lipstick, staring at the color.

“What do you think?”

Atsushi shrugs. “Looks good to me.”

Tatsuya twists it, enough for the color to poke out farther from the end, and then applies it, brushing over Atsushi’s lip. Atsushi nearly jerks back.

“That tickles.”

“Sorry.”

His hand hadn’t slipped too much; it’s all still within the bounds of Atsushi’s soft lips, their usual shade of pink covered with the dark purple, and it really does look good with the hair, the eyes, the skin, the dress. Tatsuya wants to stop and kiss him, but that would just ruin the lipstick. He carefully paints around the edges, filling them in with purple until they’re totally covered. It’s not that much in terms of faces full of makeup, but Atsushi looks different. In a good way, a pretty way.

“Let me see.”

Tatsuya ducks out of the way, watching Atsushi stare at himself in the mirror. He squints, and then gathers his hair back, pulling it away from his face and neck. A ponytail isn’t going to cut it here, but they have pins and clips to put it in some sort of updo, but Tatsuya will let Atsushi handle that. He’ll just watch.

“You’re a decent hitter. For a pitcher,” Liu allows, leaning over the dugout railing.

Himuro raises an eyebrow. If this is Liu’s attempt at teasing, it’s—okay, he supposes, better than picking on his pitching, which does need some work, the fastball he can’t quite inch up above ninety still, the knuckleball that flattens out too quickly sometimes. But he leads the team in average; he’s no power hitter but he can execute a bunt, lay down a line drive double in the gap. Maybe he’s only first in average because Atsushi doesn’t try that hard, but someone has to score the runs. You can’t win a game with a score of 0-0, after all.

“Is that a challenge?”

“Maybe,” says Liu, taking off his cap and running a hand through his sweaty hair.

Fukui walks; Himuro strides out to the on-deck circle to take some practice cuts. It’s an exhibition game; they’re using metal bats, a challenge Coach has made to the pitchers—don’t give up any long fly balls. Himuro hadn’t in his two innings of work; the knuckleball isn’t particularly prone to that when it’s working, and today it is well enough. The next batter pops up; it’s Himuro’s turn. He looks back to Liu in the dugout; he’s leaning forward and smirking. So it is a challenge.

It’s not like Himuro can’t hit home runs, but it’s not like he’s going to fuck up his stance swinging for the fences, either.

The first pitch comes in fast, higher than he likes and high enough (or badly-framed enough) that the umpire calls ball one. Himuro prefers facing off against righty pitchers; whether because it’s something in his lefty batting stance or the fact that he’s a righty pitcher himself he doesn’t know, and the why of it doesn’t really matter. Still, that doesn’t mean he’s not going to try harder to hit lefties, and, well, the second pitch comes in slow, a little movement just toward the outside corner, right where Himuro likes it. He’s got to swing a little harder to make it carry, but, well.

It lands on the other side of the fence; Fukui and Atsushi high-five Himuro at the plate and the smirk is gone, replaced with an unsurprised smile. Liu grabs Himuro’s ass just as Himuro’s about to grab his, and Himuro lets his hand graze the small of Liu’s back instead, right under his jersey number.

“Like I said,” Liu says. “You’re decent for a pitcher.”

“Babe,” says Aomine. “I know you got this.”

“Then why are you here?” says Midorima.

There’s one out and a runner at first, the perfect situation to induce a ground ball and be done with it. Midorima doesn’t trust his fielders as much as he trusts himself (especially when it’s not Aomine out there at third), but still. A routine play, one that they’ve made a million times. They can handle it; Midorima doesn’t need to waste time trying to pick off the runner. Unless he’s going to try and steal on Aomine's rifle of an arm, which would be stupid—but that doesn’t mean he won’t do it. Midorima sighs.

“Just strike him out, Ace.”

“You’re the power pitcher.”

“Eh, true, but it’s not like you can’t,” says Aomine, that cheeky grin of his splitting his face. “You got this."

The umpire’s starting to walk out; Aomine squeezes Midorima’s ass (definitely not the normal buddy-buddy ass slap that the other catchers give him, and probably not appropriate for the middle of the game, but whatever). Midorima’s cheeks are flaming with more than the usual sunburn. He waits for Aomine to pull on his mask and crouch behind the plate; he checks the runner and looks in for the sign. Changeup, okay. He fires from the stretch; the batter’s looking for a fastball and seizes up; Aomine frames the pitch perfectly. Strike one.

Midorima checks the runner again; he’s not going. Aomine calls for the curve and Midorima shakes his head. Another changeup, and he nods, fires. The batter makes contact, but his swing is early and pulls the ball foul. Two strikes, the runner taking a bigger lead but not worth throwing over. Midorima could get him like that, but he knows exactly what Aomine wants now. He’s ready for the fastball before Aomine even signs it.

The batter swings over it; Midorima doesn’t have to look to know the runner’s going. Aomine’s throw is sharp, sizzling, a perfect strike from nearly twice the length of a pitch, straight into Sakurai’s glove where he smacks the tag on the runner’s leg with plenty of time left. Three out.

“Nice throw,” Midorima says, catching up with Aomine on their way back to the dugout.

Aomine beams (are compliments from him that rare?) before launching into a flowery description of Midorima’s pitching that leaves him blushing furiously and almost wishing the game was over sooner.

“What the hell was the oven up to?”

“450,” says Alex. “That’s what it said.”

“It says 250,” says Masako. “See?”

Alex squints at the paper, holding it up to her face. “I guess it does. Shit.”

Oh. Masako’s stomach drops; she’d known there had to have been some kind of reason. Alex is a good cook, not prone to making mistakes like this, turning the oven on two hundred degrees too hot and leaving a charred mess in the casserole dish, especially because this is her oven and her apartment. She knows how to use it.

“Are your eyes—”

“It’s fine; I knew I needed to update my prescription,” says Alex. “I’ve just been putting it off; shit’s been getting in the way. It’s been headed this way for a while, but it’s not, like, getting to that kind of point, you know?”

(They talk around it, always; maybe it’s less than they used to, but the road to where Alex is comfortable with it, to where Masako’s comfortable with raising the subject to her, is rocky and uneven, subject to sudden pitfalls.)

“I’m sorry,” says Masako. “I didn’t even think about it.”

“It’s okay,” says Alex. “If we soak the dish it should be fine. And I’ll ask for something printed larger if I need it.”

She pushes up her glasses on her nose. “What about your prescription?”

“Ill call the eye doctor. Tonight, if you want me to.”

(Masako doesn’t want to push it, but she doesn’t want anything to happen; she doesn’t want to hover and Alex knows how to get around with her eyesight as it is but still.)

“Hey,” says Alex, her hand cool on Masako’s shoulder. “I know. I’m kind of difficult and stubborn.”

“Not like I’m not,” says Masako, giving her a half smile.

They leave the casserole dish full of warm, soapy water in the sink, the window open to let out what’s left of the smoke, the oven double checked that it’s off, before they retire to the living room. They both kind of smell like burnt vegetables; they both need showers but first it’s nice to just not be freaking out about the smoke alarm, or about each other, to just lie on the couch with their eyes closed for a bit.

“We still need dinner,” Alex mumbles.

“Takeout?” says Masako. “I’ll buy.”

“You don’t have to,” Alex says, kissing Masako’s jaw.

“I know,” says Masako.

"It's not going to work," Alex says, kicking up off the ground and hovering cross-legged.

Masako frowns and reaches into her bag, taking out a can of salt. She stands up, walking in a circle around Alex, spilling it on the grass below. Alex lowers herself closer to the ground and studies the salt. She extends her hand towards it before snatching it away as if burned. She laughs, shaking her hand out, and hovers her way out of the circle.

"It's iodized. I'm not a chemist, but I do know that it's got to be pure sodium chloride to trap a demon."

Masako shrugs. "It was worth a shot."

She rummages through her bag again and brings out a box full of white tealights. She counts out thirteen before laying them around Alex again. She take a lighter out of her pocket and lights seven. She's about to start chanting an incantation when Alex clears her throat.

"You... do know that there is an easier way to get rid of a succubus, right?"

Masako grimaces. "I'd rather not."

Alex laughs and combs her fingers through her long blonde hair. "It's not like I'd eat you or anything. Just a wham, bam, thank you ma'am. Am I not your type or something?"

Masako shakes her head, letting her eyes rove up and down Alex's body. "That's not the issue here."

"I could show you a good time."

"I could show you right out of here."

"Ooh," Alex says, winking, "sassy."

Masako sighs. "Shouldn't it be obvious to you? I'm a sister. It wouldn't be becoming of me to just fuck demons out of existence. It would be a poor example for all of the acolytes, and god knows I already have enough trouble keeping them in line."

"Oh, it's too late for you if that's what you were going for." Alex unfolds her legs and stands in the middle of the candlelit circle. "I haven't been here before, but I have met one of your acolytes somewhere before. The cute one with the mole. He took the straightforward way out. Maybe you could learn from your students."

Masako feels a vein in her forehead pulse. She wishes she had her sword on her. The demon would probably like that, though. Damn. "Well, I'll just have to teach him a lesson later."

Alex raises an eyebrow. "But now?"

Masako sighs and blows the candles out one by one. "I'm going to perform your exorcism the tried-and-true way."

Alex grins.
