Cali's body wailed and screamed with pain, a sensation she wasn't presently familiar with. It was like being thrown into skydiving, with how sudden and strong this came on. She felt like a small child, vulnerable, scared, wanting to back out before it truly began. It was impulse, the golden tears that rolled down her cheeks, a representation of the part of her mind that wished to blot out violence. Though this was responded to with a swift, hard, horribly damaging kick to the gut. Her flesh screamed again, far louder than it had ever before, the sensation of liquid leaving her lips in a high volume in response to the attack, a small puddle of blue, splattered liquid forming between the two girls, as Algos caught her chin.
The look in Cali's eyes was one of a terrified animal, labored breathing as the entirety of her stomach was a mass of squirming darkness, her body trying to keep up with healing but was largely unfocused from it's master's mental distress. It felt like her sibling's words were delayed from her point of view, seeing her lips moving but the correct words to match the movement only coming out seconds later. She was still coherent enough to understand what the hell she was talking about, however, her body hanging helplessly from that one finger keeping her from becoming a miserable puddle. Gold constantly flickered her vision as her eyes were pouring tears like there was no tomorrow.
Her mind didn't have time to contemplate her words, til she was suddenly flying, flying and burning. The world felt as if it slowed once more.
Algos was correct. If this was a true battle, she would be dead by now. The stinging of her flesh was trivial to what a true enemy out for blood would do to her. She had no choice in the matter of the cruelties of the world crawling in and wishing to consume her with the goals she wished to achieve. Why did this hurt so badly? Why did she feel fear in seeing other's injuries? Would she cringe too, at the enemy's injuries?
Her vision darkened, everything felt cold, as she smashed into the cliff. She knew she shouldn't be this damaged so quickly. She was more than this, she felt more than this, then why was she still holding back? Why did everything feel so scary in this moment?I don't want to hurt anyone.. I don't want anyone to hurt me...
I want to protect everyone.. If I can't hurt one person, they'll hurt everyone..
But pain is scary...
It is scary. But i'm scarier.
In the confused, adrenaline-fueled space of mind this conversation was occuring in, a major reminder of her body's nature showed itself, a collage of eyes, arms, tendrils, mouths, all you can name, appeared in a black writhing mass.Pain... Shouldn't... Stop... Me... From... Making... People... Smile...
I can't... Give up... Because...
Calypso's body flickered black, as she pulled herself weakly out of the small crater she created in the cliff, labored breaths, but having managed to get back onto her feet. Even if it hurts... It would hurt more to do nothing... And watch everyone suffer from my non-action..
A small smile formed on her wounded face, "..And absolute nothingness, sounds scarier than me..."
Her voice was small as that thought was communicated aloud, her emotions from how shitty her body felt at the moment welling up in her throat, til she suddenly readied her stance. Eyes slowly opened up all over her body, of varying shapes, her fingers digging into her palms as the eyes formed mouths, taking in air.
Her head lifted up a bit, taking in a breath as well, as her emotions were fit to burst. She never used this ability, she simply only knew she could do this, and use for release was likely the most fitting first usage. If not stopped from performing her attack, Calypso would then scream,
scream so horribly loud, the eyes on her body following in this performance in catharsis. It wasn't a scream of a damsel in distress, her own scream was an ugly, vocal chord shredding one, of getting it all out in the open, pouring all that stress out of her body like some disgusting muck. However, this disgusting muck took the form of ear shattering screeches and cries akin to the voices of pain Algos likely called music. However, even this wouldn't be music to the most sadistic of beings, it was a painful noise, so painful that the sheer presence of it blew away anything within 20 meters that wasn't prepared for it.
Her energy was emitted through this display, shredding the area around her apart. Any plant life was uprooted, dirt flying, even the cliff behind her's base became brittle from the energy brutally smashing against it.
