Lerna was not really the type to go shopping all that often, but as it were her little journey across Japan was turning out to be a bit more enjoyable than she had thought it would be. Years of having spent most of her time wandering from place to place meant that there was never really a 'home' she could claim for herself, but as she walked through the shopping district and let her gaze meander through the crowds she couldn't help but feel something of an affinity for the place. That 'home'-like feeling was rare, and maybe that was a reason she tried not to spend too much time in asia. Those faint, distant echoes of a life so very far behind and not quite her own resonated in both pleasant and unnerving tones.
And for just a moment, her eyes drifted to a convenience store, and she saw a man gaily traipsing out and walking past her. The reek of Sake caught in her nose and she grimace, speeding up and focusing on what looked like a larger department-style store.
She felt like a damn tourist... but she couldn't help but feel a tinge of curiosity. Hell she practically WAS a tourist, the last time she'd lived around here was several thousand years ago. Thousand? She wrinkled her nose, closing her eyes and reaching up to tub her eyes. No, that was a past life, don't think about that shit. She relaxed, putting on a calm smile as she took a moment to start browsing. Eyes scanning as she found her way through the separate departments. All the while, she kept her guard slightly up. Even if there was almost no chance of being attacked here, she couldn't help but feel apprehensive. Almost as if she sensed danger nearby.

KAGAYAKU NO MURASAKI
It'd been a while since Murasaki had had any time to come down to Earth and actually relax a little, and it was nice being around these parts again. Naturally the first thing she'd done was make sure everything was still nice and peaceful over in Mongolia, but thankfully that part of the world was always real quiet. Even when people came down to Earth and started problems, they never hit that peaceful little corner of the planet.
Of course, now that she was here in Japan, she had to wonder if this wasn't most of the reason Mongolia stayed safe. Shadin Yuudeshi did sort of just hang around here and loom ominously, so that probably kept most people from wanting to actually invade anywhere nearby. Especially since K-World had sorta gone quiet lately... Weird. Real weird.
Either way, today was a day off, so Murasaki wasn't worrying about politics or whatever. Just her shopping trip and-- and whatever it was that felt a whole lot like a Hollow hanging around. Maaaan... Well, better get to it, then.

The far-off tingle of spiritual pressure made Lerna pause her shopping, stopping in the street and turning her head in the direction of that sensation. Hollows? Well that was annoying, and close by as well. The distant rumble of the sky peeling open caused her to tense. A glance to the sky made her tense up. A slight distortion, a telltale sign of gargantas. She sighed, taking one last look at the rack she'd been eyeing. Well she'd have to worry about shopping later.
She began to move out into the streets, briskly making her way toward the spiritual pressures she could sense. And she could already see the hollows themselves slithering out of yawning cracks in the air itself. The hollows were the usual assortment of seemingly random beasts. However, something caught her eye among their number. One which seemed to be hanging back, circling in the air overhead in a long grotesque length. Looking like some sort of bony caiman skeleton with glowing green eyes. From it's mouth a sickly green energy seemed to be spilling out, hanging in dense clouds which seemed to refuse gravity and hang in the air rather than drifting down or dispersing, creating a slow sort of winding line in the sky. Almost as if it were drawing something.
That said, it was the furthest from the actual people, and immediately a yell began to draw her attention. Already some of the nearby civillians had taken notice of the monstrous hollows and had begun running for shelter. Down the block she could see one of the hollows charging after a small group and she promptly broke into a run herself. A steady increase in speed before for just a fraction of a second, the air around her compressed and she sped straight toward the beast, catching it halfway towards it's prey and planting both palms into it's big armored shoulders! The Rhino-like hollow suddenly halted! a crunching noise sounding as it was suddenly stopped! OW!
The sheer bulk of the big thing was suddenly straining her wrists and she wound up TWISTING, yanking on those big bony spikes protruding from it's armored shoulders and then using it's own momentum to throw the beast straight across the street! The beast SLAMMING into a car with a loud CRUNCH, before she sped after it, dragging her fingers along the ground. Her roots ripping up the pavement and dragging in reishi from the air, hardening her skin before she barreled her open hand into the underside of it's chin, plowing clean through the unarmored flesh and stabbing up into the skull with that blade-like hand.
The beast's body thrashed but once before slumping against the ground, Lerna ripping her hand from it's corpse and beginning to peer about. Not too much damage... but the hollow was dead at least. She'd have to hurry if she was going to deal with the other small fry. She didn't want any little fuckers stabbing her in the back when she went to deal with....whatever that thing up there was doing. "I really need a proper weapon."
She murmured irritably to herself, honing in on the next closest hollow reiatsu and sprinting off at a brisk pace.
