[Ruqqayah x Edo]

Image

...is the width of a thread from a spider's web. Wataru, when they found him, was only partially wrapped; he lay over the carcass of a dead spider. He must have shot it when they had fallen falling, or the spider had fallen unfortunately. It didn't make much difference because Wataru looked... dead. Being still a relatively young boy, with a peaceful expression, he reminded her of...

"Gusai-san..." his voice was little more than a whisper. Carefully, the Miya moved closer.

"No... N-no, you can't-" Unlike the Miya, she ran over and took a knife out to cut the young man loose from the threads with a slightly shaking hand, feeling his neck for a heartbeat. The spider he was over didn't enter her mind at all. No, her mind was thousands of miles away, in the sands, praying to Shinjo as she tried to find a sign of life from Bashiri. "Please breathe..."

Fortunately, despite reliving the worst event in her life in her mind, she was still able to focus enough to assess the man before her accurately.

He was alive... just barely, by the thinnest hairsbreadth... Ruqqayah thought that if she tried a certain method of taking him off the precipice...

[Ritual: Intelligence/Spellcraft (Khadi) vs. TN40]

[If it succeeds, I'll discuss with Wataru what exactly it has caused, but it's not heart removal, but another trick from the Book of the Dead. The experience might give Ruqqayah an idea where she is with her research; and Edogawa is watching...]

Edogawa was watching, knowing there was very little he could do. At some point, he had drawn his sword and pointed it at the spider carcass.

Just in case.

Ruqqayah took a breath and steadied her hands... trying to steady her heart. It didn't matter. The Miya didn't matter. Nothing else mattered. She could save him. Maybe... Maybe.

She went to work... She was so close. It was so close! But just out of her gasp. It wasn't enough. It was never enough. She couldn't help the hot tears that started to fall. Why was it always just out of her grasp...?

EM10 Line Between Intelligence/Spellcraft (Khadi) TN 40, Spending Void for +1k1: 8d10ro1o10k5 36

[Burning Dark Fate for this session for a Free Raise. +5 is 41 - just hit.]

"No... no, no, no, this cannot fail... not this close... What am I missing...?" She muttered to herself through gritted teeth as she worked. Then she saw it. What she missed. And it came together. The heart beat.

Whatever she did with the darker registers of the Seal... it worked. She could notice how his breathing became observable and was slowly stabilising. Now regular healing would be able to bring him back.

[Ruqqayah pulls Wataru out of clinical death with dark gaijin magicks! He is now considered having all Wound Ranks just full.]

A pained chuckle rose from the girl's chest as she performed normal first aid on Watary and then rose, sounding like she was restraining further emotion. "Alive." She swallowed and turned toward Edogawa with a pained smile, looking exhausted. "He's alive. We should get him out of here."

"You're right." With some effort, Edogawa lifted the Mantis and prepared to carry him out.

Ruqqayah helped him with Wataru, and together, they made their way out.

"Let's get him back to the Yamato for more treatment." Edogawa said and led them out.

Ruqqayah's treatment would eventually restore his consciousness, and ability to move with support.

[Wataru is at Crippled]
[Edo & Ruq receive 10 VIP each for saving a PC.]
[RP can continue if Wataru joins this thread once he gets back online; page him maybe?]

Wataru was drifting in blackness, he could not move, his body was unable to react to his minds commands. He was just laying there, floating over calmness in complete darkness. The samurai could feel the water around him, yet it's density was different, like non he had felt before. The water seemed to come in and through him, and then out again. He thought that his lack of senses was due to the state in which he remembered to be before shutting his eyes. The samurai recalled falling, and going down pulled by the many legs, and trying to be released from the hold with his gun. He then felt there was no gun in his hand. Am I even alive? He thought to himself.

As a reaction to his though the waters surrounding the water started to move, starting to overlapping him, and he was barely able to spit it out when more water rushed over his face and into his mouth. Faster and faster the water moved, and the samurai felt going into the depths of the water, in a still darkness, and then a horrible pain in his body shotting through him, warning him that his time in Ningen-Do was still not over. The pain was growing, becoming unbearable, as he opened his mouth and tried to cry out, though it was muffled from the water that poured into him. His death was soon upon him, when he was pulled out of it all and his eyes shot open drastically.

His vision was blurry at the beginning, and then slowly it came to two forms over him. His breathing, he could feel, had started to be very rapid, as much as his heartbeat, which he felt throbbing on his forehead, pressing against his cranium. The images became two persons over him, one he recognized, the other he did not. "Edo" he forced himself to say, yet he was unable to continue the name as his body got used to breathing once more.

"Hey, hold on... He's regaining consciousness," a gentle, accented female voice said. He could see her moving through his blurry vision, and then felt cool, soft skin on his forehead - a hand. "Careful, there. You almost left us."

Soothing energy suffused him as his body quickly started knitting itself back together.

"It's alright, Wataru-san." the Miya assured the man as Ruqqayah's magic helped him further. "You'll recover soon, with some rest."
