It was still quite early in the morning so the festival seemed to be a bit dull, but it was the only times that Lacie would allow herself to get out and walk across the terrain, it would be easier to spot another ginger and her sister with her good heart would never suspect it was her while she could savely run away before they bumped into each other, all was good. She wore a long summer dress, specked with flowers and made up of light blue and white. Her hair was tight up in a ponytail and she wore wedges, so she could walk easier on the grass patches and in this case she walked to the river where the festival was next to. She had been here before, met a couple of interesting people that seemed to have disappeared of the earth surface.

She wrapped her arms around her, or actually it was that she disappeared of the earth as she had to hide, she needed to figure out where her sister was so it would be a lot easier to live. But how to track her down without using her cousin, who she had lost contact with as well, she thought Selena so called, cared for her but no. She had to find someone that did, perhaps that was a good new thing to do.

Another all night patrol. The girl sipped on a warm drink that was infused with substances that helped her stay awake. A vague smile was sent in the direction of the stall owner who had whipped this up for her, before even setting his stall up. The poor dedicated man now worked to construct his stall in the wee hours of the morning. In the short conversation she held with him, he explained much like she had already deduced, the reasons for his early arrival. He was hoping he could be among the first to open and attract all the customers, the competition at the festival was quite brutal.

Her nightly patrols weren't even duty or habit based anymore. She just didn't sleep to avoid the nightmares that ensued after the two lives she had taken, reality was definitely better than the alternatives her traumatized created. This was probably the quietest time of the festival, the drunkards had passed out, the eager ones were still in bed... Akira sat on a make shift bench. The benches were made of the trees that were probably cut to clear out the area. They were just thick trunks that were cut down in half, longitudinally. One half made the low seat and the other half rested on wedges and served as a backrest. Lazily, her eyes scoured the area for the faces that would soon start emerging.

Lacie picked up a little pebble and wanted to throw it so cool into the river but it didn't skip it just simply sunk with a loud sound. She shook her head and decided that it might be better to get something to drink, a coffee or something to get a little warmer at this hour. It might be very early and there was barely anyone around and well cold to be fair. She also kept a bit on her toes as she was still a bit afraid, with all the bad luck and good luck she had before, she could bump into her sister at any minute now. Better hide herself behind a newspaper.

So she stumbled back towards the festival or where normal people would stay and be if it was more crowded. At this point there was barely anyone. She brushed her red hair out of her face and leaned onto the counter where she soon ended up, the only place that seemed to be open, a life saver. And later well a coffee would warm her up again. She perhaps should just walk, wait for most people to wake up and than leave again before she would go back to the hotel and wait for the day to end and see the firework show from her balcony, that sure did sound boring but it was the way it worked. She checked out everyone that was at the stand but she didn't recognize anyone nor see a uniform, so she was okay.

Since her night patrol wasn't official, she didn't really bother with the uniform. Having sat herself a little distance away from the man who was still working on his beverage stall, she had a pretty clear view of the expanse. Somewhere beyond the tents and the clearing, the soft gurgle of the water, lilted in the air, a gentle cool breeze carried it to Akira. The caress from the scent-laced current, caused a host of goosebump to erupt over the girl's fair skin. The Shimada sighed, while she'd grown used to the beauty, it still was a welcome change from the concrete jungles in the cities she'd visited one after another.

Finally, the man had finished his stall and offered Akira another polite and weary smile. Was that a silent offer to get her another one of these magical beverages? she wondered. Maybe he was just grateful for the silent and distant company the girl had provided. She noticed a lone figure walk towards the newly minted stall, just as he finished nailing up his board, advertising all sorts of exotic and simple drinks. Upon narrowing her eyes, she recognized her immediately... It was Alice. Akira averted her gaze, but not for too long, she should probably face-up to the woman, despite their differences. Considering, now Akira had also taken lives, she understood just a little better what it meant and the circumstances that might push one in such directions.

Sighing, she slowly got off her seat and ambled towards the stall owner, who looked rather hopeful with two possible customers approaching. Akira simply cleared her throat as she neared Alice, to garner her attention. An apology and another heart to heart should probably cut it, but Akira was hardly good at those...

She walked towards the stand, the man seemed to be eager to get an order in. Probably waiting for jewels, perhaps the life of a festival couldn't be all about flowers and happy faces. She didn't care, she was glad someone was open at this hour and she simply placed an order for a coffee, she would rather have it extra strong as she would probably fall asleep later today if she would be stuck in the inn again where she stayed. Lacie pouted a bit by her own track of thoughts, it wasn't always about flowers and happy faces indeed.

She wasn't very sure if the person that showed up next to her meant her, it would be another discussion about her lovely twinsister again and she wasn't ready for that, she wasn't ready to hear if Alice was in Orchidia or whatsoever and not ready to play the game of lieutenant. So she would simply turn her face, her brown eyes looking at a girl that she didn't know and at this point didn't want to know. "Hi." she simply said before turning her face away again and accepting the paper cup of coffee and handed over the jewels. This person could either not be too familiar with her and now chatter to her as if she was Alice or apologize and saying she had the wrong person, she would wait, it would all be fine and she could make a last stroll, think some more about why someone else wouldn't get out of her head and move back to the inn.

It was a bit odd, for Alice not to provide anything more than a mere greeting Akira's brows furrowed together as she awkwardly returned the monosyllabic recognition of existence. 'Hi!' she tried to pump her response with something that resembled brightness and keenness. There was just enough of a somber note to lilting in her tone, to highlight the fact that she was guilty about the harsh judgement she'd bestowed upon the woman the last time they'd met. Then there was silence again, the woman had ordered a simple coffee and Akira was tempted to tell her about the elixir she was having, which was so much richer than the banal coffee... But she bit her tongue.

The stall owner asked Akira what she'd like and she merely pointed to the container he'd offered her last time before saying. 'Some more of this, its brilliant!' she exclaimed, beaming at the man quite gratefully, hoping the praise might draw Alice into changing her choice too. After serving the orange-haired woman her drink, he slipped back into the depths of the stall to make Aki her beverage. The young Shimada cleared her throat again as awkward silence enveloped them. 'Sorry about leaving so abruptly last time... I had to be somewhere.' she mumbled, finally giving words to her feelings and still lying about the reason, which Alice had probably predicted. She tapped her palms on the counter of the stall. 'Er... How're you doing anyways?' she asked, her voice was still soft and unsure and she kept her eyes peeled for the man.

Right so it was again a day to pretend she was Alice, she wasn't very good at that. She had not seen her sister recently and the lies were only more impossible to continue. All she knew was that she was a lieutenant. If that was even still the case, so she had to be more vague but this conversation seemed to be more personal than she was ready for and she looked at the girl from the corner of her eyes. What had happened was beyond her, but it at least was a satisfying feeling that Alice wasn't perfect either. So she took a sip of the burning hot coffee even if she didn't really noticed that and looked at the girl a bit more. She gave a small smile, "I'm not fully awake yet, sorry."

How would her sister react, she wasn't exactly sure if she was a morning person or not. "Been a busy few days." She answered as the girl asked her how she had been doing, that couldn't be difficult to predict. She simply eyed the girl, no name, no idea, never met her before. She bet she was a knight and hopefully she could trick her like she did with that Xandra Queen. "Let's forget what happened before, a fresh start might be a good thing." Because she had the idea that she was lying as she mumbled that she 'had to be somewhere'. It had taken her a few seconds before she said it as well as mumble, which made her think that Alice wasn't perfect, they must have had a fight or so and this girl had stormed off, something like that?

'Oh, yeah... I get that. To be honest though, I didn't even sleep.' Akira responded, just as she stifled a yawn. She didn't mean to try one-up her mentor or anything, but it just sort of slipped out in her dazed state. Finally, the stall-man arrived with her magic infused drink, it was thick liquid, that had a glimmering quality about it. Its color vastly more extravagant than the brown liquid Alice consumed, Aki's drink was composed of a lush, royal purple. Aki absently watched the tendrils of steam that billowed from her cup, before wrapping her digits around it.

When the woman spoke of how she'd been busy, Aki simply nodded in an empathetic manner. 'Tell me about it...' she said, rhetorically. Surely Alice knew about what had transpired in all the time since Aki left Crocus. Being higher ranking and all, someone must've told her what happened... right? Akira frowned, lost in her own thoughts momentarily, wondering if her boss had been in the loop or not. 'You heard what happened right?' she asked, vaguely, wondering if the woman would pick up on it and respond accordingly. Based on how she reacted, Akira could either tactically evade the topic of the operation or try to glean more understanding on if the Knights always worked this way.

Alice forgave Akira for her little outburst, or so it seemed, perhaps that maturity was why she'd risen in the ranks, apart from the undoubted help she had given her associations... Akira resorted to mumbling again. 'Yeah... probably best, thanks for understanding.' It was just then that Aki recalled what exactly could've been keeping Alice busy. 'Oh! Damn, almost forgot! You ready for the big day and all?' she said, steering the conversation into more jovial territory as she referred to the ceremony that was supposed to happen soon.

She made a clicking sound with her voice, didn't even sleep, how did people survive that, "Didn't sleep, my my my, you would need more coffee than I do." she tried to say lightly, she had no idea how her sister would react to all this, bonding stuff. "Anything that's bothering you?" She looked at her cup of coffee and took another sip, better turn the conversation to this stranger instead of to Alice because that would make it very difficult. But the thing was that that didn't go so easy.

She leaned on the counter, quite curious about the purple beverage that she was drinking, but she couldn't simply ask what it was or anything, how long had it been that she had seen Alice, when was she in Baska, heavily pregnant, right.. she got the kids right? Well she had to, because no comment on her missing pregnancy stomach, thank god. She could do this, hopefully, but another private vague question, so she had to play this right. "Heard what happened? There is a lot of things happening, you would need to be a bit more specific, I'm afraid." Best way to avoid this, she could say she was busy with something else and be just as vague, she shouldh ave done that, something about children, how long would she be a mom, oh boy, this was getting more difficult by the minute, especially with the question after that.

She was very enthusiastic, big day? What big day.... labour must have happened but what, christening? Or well mostly people refered to a big birthday party, but they weren't having their birthday soon it wasn't august and second of all.. a wedding. Alice was never the material for a wedding, "When can you be ever ready for such a big happening." she said smoothly but she was starting to get difficult things, was she getting married... how dare Alice getting married. She clenched her fist too harshly around the cup, she felt anger again, jealousy of her own sister.

Strange. Alice usually wasn't all that sympathetic towards Akira, given the slightly prickly state of their relationship. Maybe the whole having children thing... and the impending marriage had softened her up. 'Yeah, I've got something stronger than coffee, you should try it.' she said sliding her cup towards the woman so she could take a peek. She'd been waiting for this opportunity for quite a while. The man behind the counter looked mighty pleased to be getting some advertisement for his special concoction. 'Oh, so many things... A lot has happened.' Aki responded, with a long sigh.

There were definitely certain things that the woman had to already have heard about, but looks like she wasn't quite aware of the whole deal with Phantom Lord. If Alice had been aware, she wouldn't need to hide the details from Aki, considering she'd have known that the Knight had been among the people that undertook that task. She could just be avoiding the uncomfortable questions around it, by feigning lack of knowledge, considering she was quite aware of the Shimada's skeptical tendencies. But Akira wasn't going to let yet another encounter sour between them, so she didn't press the matter.

'I don't know how far the news traveled about that vampyre, for one...' Aki said, staring into her cup as she reminded herself of the uncomfortable moments of that night. 'The one that stirred up trouble here, and was killed by a Knight...' she elaborated just a little bit, then punctuated her words with an elaborate sigh. She took a sip of her drink, almost like it would bolster her spirit and courage somehow. 'I was the Knight that dealt with her...' she muttered, shuddering rather gently, which could pass off as a shiver considering the gentle breeze that swept over the deserted area. She cleared her throat, hoping this was a fair enough answer for specificity and that they could avoid, or at least delay the awkwardness that the topic of the council might stir.

'Really?' Aki retorted with a hint of just a little skepticism and surprise. She smiled however as she took another sip. 'I thought you'd been planning this for ages, still all nervous?' she prodded playfully. The two already had kids together, at this point in Akira's head the entire concept of marriage for them seemed more like a formality. Perhaps it was just something to indulge the church, considering Konstantin seemed to have strong ties with that whole system, at least from what the Shimada had deduced.

It was too early to keep thinking about Alice while there was another person in her mind and she wanted to get out of here but as that was even more suspicious, she wasn't entirely sure what she should do at all. She tried to figure out how a friendly open person would behave, something she could do as well if the anxiety wouldn't hit her in the stomach every five seconds because people seemed to like Alice a lot more than her and she stared at the purple brew and pulled up her nose, it didn't smell bad but she was a bit afraid of it, "Who knows another morning." she tried to say friendly, after all she had already bought her coffee, was it healthy for young people to drink something like that, because this girl looked even younger than herself, with her doll like aura, so what would her age be.

Her brown eyes looked at Akira, she didn't know a vampyre so what would Alice know about that and what kind of reaction did this girl expected? She nodded, well at least the knight took care of it, she moved up the cup to take a sip of the coffee but she stopped as the girl (whose name Lacie still didn't know) admitted that she was the knight, shit, this thing was powerful too. She swallowed with difficulty and thought about what to say, "Sorry, I don't really know what to say. How are you holding up?" She thought was the best to say, it was true as well and most people like to be comforted right, especially when they considered they were good.

After that she tried to get her way out of this concept of the big day, for she had no what it could be. Planning for ages? Still nervous, she couldn't help but slam the cup on the bar, "That bitch..." she said out loud, realizing she did, she turned towards Akira, opening her mouth to say something but she didn't know what, talk about unfair, now she was getting married!

The entire encounter was rather awkward. Aki had always expected her meeting with Alice to be that way, except she'd hoped it'd be at the wedding, where the details of the ceremony and the various guests would take away the edge. Now here she was, meeting the woman much earlier than anticipated. Woman... mother... boss... Many labels attached to the poor soul, the least Aki could do was empathize with that. The woman wasn't too taken in by the strange brew Aki had bravely tried, the Knight was swift to retrieve her cup and continue sipping amidst the strange conversation and the tall pauses both the women took.

It really felt off... Alice was not someone too shy of words. Even the last time they'd met, she wasn't as hesitant as she was today, perhaps the wedding was stressing her out more than Akira could comprehend. Her words felt a little empty, maybe it was just Akira's perception, but she'd always seen Alice to be someone who was rather upfront and honest about her emotions. While the Shimada hadn't really thought there would be some crazy empathy, owing to the fact that Akira rarely cut the solar mage any slack, she had never thought she'd be on this end of such a practiced response. 'Er... I'll be- I mean I'm fine I guess...' she said, now reflecting the carefully measured words as she eyed the woman.

Akira rubbed her eyes, as though it would miraculously help her take the dark circles off. And suddenly the woman swore. 'That bitch?' Akira repeated, confused. 'The vampyre?' she asked quizzically as she put her fingers through her hair and raised an eyebrow. 'What're you on about, Alice?' she prodded, now letting her brows knit together in a frown.

She had a slight moment of panic and to not fiddle with her hands, hair or pout or do something other crazy, she hid herself by drinking coffee, perhaps she should buy the brewery and get this girl to shut up, or something. She wasn't even sure if she made up in her mind that she and Alice, this girl and Alice that she meant, had a difficult whatever you wanted to call it relationship and now Lacie had to knit the ends together to figure out what she would do or more like: what her sister would do. She looked at the girl, where she had thought that this one was an easy page to pay off and let her go and running, it only turned out to be more difficult, was Alice her mentor or something!

That woman couldn't be a mentor for anyone she was probably just the lieutenant that people liked to rant about, wait was she still the lieutenant with that baby?! There was a baby right or was there a joy of a miscarriage and people were now so tender and caring around her to talk about nothing else.. no wait this girl had talked about killing, which was a very big probably if Lacie was busted and she didn't plan to die yet! Alice was first!

But than she slipped and the panic only grew more, that bitch, great calling Lacie, she had to figure something out, did Alice talk as much about her as she did about Alice because than.. "Oh ehm I mean.." yet the stuttering and stammering didn't stop, "You see, as I told you a lot, my sister.. Lacie." it was strange to say her own name, "I forgot I had to make sure she is ehm.. far away eh from me of course with the eh, wedding." Please let it be a wedding! Because else she had now made up a huge mistake and had to fix it and run off before this girl found out that there was no wedding, but what else could be a big day!

Crap. Akira finally put all the clues together. It took her so much longer than it would've if she wasn't sleepy. She rubbed her eyes more vigorously once again, now trying her best to get rid of the dark bags underneath them and sort of comically allowing for a cartoonish display of disbelief. Oh it couldn't be! she thought as she dropped her hands and curled her fingers around her warm cup again. It was only when the woman mentioned Lacie, that all the information that Akira had subconsciously taken in fell into place.

The young girl shuffled, she wasn't very good at pretending, but the easiest way to play this out, was to use the woman's tricks back at her. Akira's breathing got just a little shallower. As her focus returned, she took her cues from the twin, hiding her own face behind the mouth of her large cup as she considered her options. 'Oh yeah! I remember, Lacie...' she said, trying to sound as even as she could. Her words were a echoing mumble as she talking into her cup, before finally setting it down on the counter again and offering the woman a very small unsure smile, an attempt at faking reassurance.

'Are you worried that she's going to be here?' Akira said, staring straight into the brown eyes of the woman in front of her. She wanted to drop her gaze to the feet, the presence of heels would make this much easier to confirm, but she was afraid of betraying her deductions. 'Do you think she knows about the wedding? What do you think she'd do if she found out?' Akira asked, narrowing her eyes just a little bit as she proceeded to lift her cup for yet another sip, at this rate, she'd need a refill faster than she'd anticipated.

The first thing she had to do, was keep this woman talking and buy herself time to figure out a way to neutralize the situation, hopefully without violence. 'I mean, you did say you would have loved your sister to be there, happy for you... Did something happen after we last met?' Akira added, speaking into her drink again, as she smirked, somehow gleaning pleasure into making it difficult for the woman to keep up appearances. The Shimada didn't want to push it too much, plus she tried to seed the idea that Alice wasn't really out to hurt the woman that stood before Akira right now, maybe reconciliation was a distant option too?

It was a short moment of relieve when this girl mentioned that she knew her name. That did mean that Alice was as obsessed with her as she wanted to call herself obsessed with Alice, so perhaps it wasn't an obsession, it was perhaps that; a twin thing. A normal thing as they hated each other and the fact that made it a bit more of a relieve, of course it would be all better if Alice didn't exist but that was a step too far to go right now and she had to see how politically correct Alice would answer those questions always, because Lacie bet she did.

As the girl stared into her eyes, Lacie was oblivious to the idea that they had two different eyes, she nodded slowly, "Never ask for the odds that make it possible." she muttered because if she heard, she would sure as hell... wait what would she do? She wanted to ruin it, if it was the best day ever, why would she would not, but would she, there would be tons of people and as she wouldn't wear a wedding gown it would be easy to spot that she wasn't Alice and Kon always knew immediately. Until the point he was badly hurt but that didn't matter now thatwas once and he wasn't her issue, she was afraid of him that was true but her issue was Alice, the demon spawn after all.

But than she stared surprised at Akira when she said that she aka Alice had said she would love to see Lacie there, "I did say that hmm." How to answer, "It would perhaps indeed be wonderful if there was family around on such a big day." But we can't have all that we want and she would definitely want the unhappiest moment of Alice achieved.

'Oh...' Akira said, now faking sadness as Lacie made her first response. I guess reconciliation is not an option. she thought as she finished slurping up her drink and set it down on the stall dramatically. 'Another.' she said with a small smile towards the stall owner. It was said in a manner that it wasn't exactly an order, still a request, but almost a friendly one, where she didn't need to rely on overt politeness and could assume that the beverage maker would be ok with it. Luckily for her, he was, the man played along seamlessly as if Akira was downing liquor instead of this special brew that basically worked as the opposite, keeping her alert, awake and now focused.

The Shimada ran her fingers through her hair and bit her lower lip to prevent herself from smirking as the woman seemingly recalled what she had said. It really was a little funny, first because Alice didn't quite say that and second this confirmed Aki's suspicion even more clearly than a peek at her feet would've. Brown eyes and then all this pretentious chatter, it was definitely good enough. The issue still remained, what was Akira going to do about it. This was the woman who had taken away the eye of the churchman, Kon... Clearly, she could be quite a mage to handle if Akira outright challenged her.

'So, I take it, nothing happened then and you've just been on the lookout for her? You think she is here?' Akira asked again, as another cup of the steaming purplish liquid was poured into the container beside her. She lifted it and blew the surface of the shimmering fluid to cool it. 'Who knows, maybe Lacie has changed and is just here to be that family for you...' the Shimada added, in an attempt to get more information and see if Lacie betrayed her side of the story while pretending to be Alice.

Panic only grew more with the red head, the thing was that she couldn't imagine Alice to actually want her around but than again perhaps she had to consider to rekindle their bond that they never had, not even as children. Something Alice seemed to be not able to fully remember but that might give Lacie hope that she wouldn't be outright arrested and killed or whatsoever for attacking her.. fiance. Oh for god sake this woman had everything, was it to simply stir her into more anger, she destroyed everything. Left Lacie with the weaker body and a dead mother and here she was having a child and getting married to a quite fancy man. Or perhaps she found another because of that eye that her spell had hit.

She fumbled with her fingers, her magic, that Dragon Slayer magic, was very dangerous. Her coffee was by this time empty but unfortunately her mind wasn't yet. For at first she had wondered about someone else, a new obsession, something she didn't want but something more positive than her well she realized she was obsessed with Alice because it was damn well right to know where her was and get in no danger because of that at all. This however meant: she was in Orchidia.

So many questions and many that Lacie couldn't answer, "I have no idea where she is, that makes it quite difficult and on one hand, I should be glad on the other it makes me nervous." Because that was exactly how she felt herself. Where she was afraid of what her sister could do to her, she was sure that Alice was afraid about what she could possibly do to others, shame it only worked once, how could she have been so stupid, it was probably because he looked weakened and the predator or winner side inside her wanted to take that chance.

Lacie laughed, she wanted to say how stupid that was, but she was pretending to be Alice, her laugh was hollow and not of fun but because of pain or something that was the matter. So she had to form it differently, "She told me I destroyed everything, apparently she has the weaker body, my mom died because of me." this girl didn't need to know it was a ritual that their mother did herself. "And that I was getting a baby made it not much better. I get everything but leave the world into defistation, I take everything, I believe that's what I-... did." She almost said I said, out of frustration, out of a lot of things, she didn't want to think about it.

The woman seemed to be slipping up, it was evident in the choice of her words, the tone she used and the flitting expressions she betrayed. Akira continued to pretend like she was lapping up all these details much like she was slurping her magic infused drink. She nodded sagely, refusing to offer voice and words in fear that it would betray the knowledge she had gathered. All in all, this had been educational and so far, Akira had managed to keep things non-violent. As she narrowed in on her plan, she reflected on the things Lacie had offered. The obsession with her sister was apparent as was her bitterness at Alice's happiness.

She set the cup down and held the gaze of the woman. It was strange, Akira had hoped there would be a more nuanced tale between the sisters, but it seemed Alice's explanations were bang on, there was nothing more to it. This wasn't even rivalry or misunderstandings, the issues seemed to have spawned from a blatant pool of envy and jealousy, it was rather despicable. Aki's guilt about judging Alice too soon grew... It seemed fate had offered her a chance to at least try and make amends.

'So, I'm assuming its still bad enough and Lacie is still out to get you and Kon...' Aki said softly, dropping her gaze one more time as she wondered if the woman would confirm her own intentions, not that it was required. The cloudy details around the woman were getting more and more clear every passing second that she continued to be Alice. Perhaps, there was a chance if she'd just been honest and explained her side of the story, the pretention definitely made her a culprit, identity theft was a criminal offence after all.

The clincher, of course, was when she referred to the baby as singular. Aki was well aware that Alice had given birth to twins. It was time, if the woman dropped any more hints, it'd eventually become obvious that the Shimada had made her deductions, it may cause her to defend herself with magic. At least if it did come to that, no one except the poor stall owner was at risk of being in the crossfire, there was a small mercy right there. 'If only she understood your guilt and turmoil over all this...' Akira mentioned, still sticking to her mediator role.

Following this, she did something which Alice would've definitely found supremely fishy and uncharacteristic, the Knight leaned in for an empathetic hug. It was a ruse of course, while on hand reached around the woman the other snaked to the handcuffs.

~

Only upon securing the woman in an embrace did Aki swiftly snap on the magic-nullifying handcuffs onto the identity thief. 'You know, it's illegal to pretend to be someone else, for that and the countless other things you have been accused of, I have no option but to arrest you, Ms. Lacie.' her words were spoken loud and clear, she maintained a certain aura of professionalism, even though it was difficult.

The best was for Lacie to simply shut her mouth but she had never really been a star of a show in that case unless she pretended to be Alice. A very dangerous game and yet she couldn't help but simply talk on and on and on. It was time to shut it, as she tried before, forcing herself to drink her coffee, until it was empty. And to simply dodge the questions mostly. So when the girl asked for a confirmation she simply nodded, that was the best way to say it or in this case say nothing at all.

She should order that drink that Akira seemed to like, only already to be doing something else now that her coffee was gone. What she didn't undersand and why she frowned at her empty cup was that there was mentioning of guilt and turmoil. What? What was Alice her guilt? Wasn't she perfect? Oh wait, what had she said before? Lacie wondered, she had no idea how to restore this but thank god it would be over in a minute, she could talk about something else, she could say she rather talk about something pleasant, push the direction towards this girl instead of at Alice. The hug would give an end to that, it would be done after that, this pathetic conversation.

What she didn't notice, or noticed far too late was the handcuff, she stared at it as Akira spoke. Right this one seemed to know Alice far better than the Queen girl and she should have gotten away as soon as she could but no.. she had to do this apparently and look at her now. "That's new information for me. But you would have done the same if your sister pictures you off like some sort of criminal." she said with a now cynical tone in her voice. Of course, Alice had raised her stupid pupils or whatever the knights were very well, that damn Lieutenant. She didn't know if she could talk her way out of this, there was no Selena to save her this time.

Akira clicked her tongue and shook her head at the handcuffed woman, betraying her dismay and disagreement with the words she spoke. 'No. Firstly, I wouldn't have done the same.' she said, with a slightly bitter note in her voice. It came from a place of sorrow and angst, something she hadn't quite yet resolved. For Akira it wasn't just a sister, growing up she had an entire town paint her off to be something devilish, demonic... evil. While she couldn't deny urges to want to retaliate, she hadn't and that was the difference between her and people like Lacie. 'And secondly, she doesn't paint you as a criminal, you are one. Like I said.' the Shimada added huffily.

She narrowed her eyes, wondering how to proceed, there was no way she'd just leave Lacie to her own devices. Yet, Akira didn't have the time or the patience to deliver her all the way back to Era. She placed her hands on her hips and tapped her feet. Her eyes snapped to the stall owner in front of him. 'I don't know if the business I brought to you this early will make up for it or not... But I need your help.' she said, rather curtly. The stall owner who had been avidly watching this interaction from the corner of his eyes, while he pretended to work, had gone rather pale. It wasn't everyday that one saw someone being arrested this way. 'Down that way and to your right, there is a cluster of tents for the Rune Knight squads.' she explained, indicating the make-shift road through the outgrowth with her finger. 'Marco, Luca and Rosa are scheduled to leave for Era later today, tell them they've been ordered by Akira Shimada to leave earlier and escort a renowned criminal to the prison and bring them with you.' Akira said, her words were clear and simple. The man nodded earnestly and scurried towards the designated direction.

'You may keep silent, anything more you say or do can and will be used against you.' Akira said, with a bite in her words as her gaze flitting back to the brown eyed woman. Finally, as the Shimada got to scan her form, she did in fact notice the sandals. She was glad Alice and she had spoken about this, some good had come off of it. The wait for the Knights was a little longer than she had expected, but finally when the bewildered, slightly drowsy people got there, Aki was quite sharp with them. 'Each of you will order the beverage to wake the hell up and they you'll will march to Era with this woman, I don't want any mishaps.' she declared. She'd expected to be challenged, but perhaps words about some of her exploits had filled their ears. Lucky for her, they hadn't directly worked under Alice, otherwise this whole ordeal would require much more information.

The stall owner smiled gratefully at Akira at the extra business, she returned the small smile politely. Once the burden of responsibility had been transferred, she offered Lacie nothing more than a last scathing look, before turning to leave, while the Knights promised to get this job done properly. A pessimistic pit in Aki's stomach told her otherwise, but it was the best she could do. She'd put three people on the job, wasting any more man power on a single person would raise too many questions... Hopefully, they were up to the task. If it all went well, Akira was rather proud of the way she'd handled this.

So there was another victim that fell for her sister innocent talk, the handcuffs felt pressing, she had no idea how it made her feel so empty but realized that it blocked her magic and right at that point she realized that she had wanted to use it but wouldn't be able to. She had not used it for ages as she had been sort of afraid for it and now she couldn't and she wanted to. Ridiculous of her own mind. "I think you are highly exaggerating, what more have I done than imposing as my sister to you." But it didn't matter, this woman knew more, else she wouldn't have seen through her probably. She should have gone after a simple greeting, saying she as the lieutenant was busy.

She was still pushed against the bar of the stall and stared fierce at the man, who was now commanded to get some people. "You and my sister might have think you would get away with this, but don't worry, Akira. You will be, Illumin is always watching." and so is the devil. She didn't care about words that would be used against her if she said them herself, she would get out, with or without Selena her help. As she would think so herself, she managed to get out without much of a problem when they were on their way to Era, it was a shame how easy it was to set these three up against each other and to get out of this messy situation, all she needed was someone to undo these nullification cuffs but she would have her own people for that.

Exit.
