Where the water had spattered on her body, a thin set of streaks would glisten in the moisture, slightly turned dullish grey from years of built up oils and stains peeling away, even if just slightly. Kaisa heard the laughter, and seemed to just stare for a moment, confused. It wasn't funny, not to her at least, and it felt like a waste of time. But if Neeko found it funny...* *Perhaps she'd find it hilarious if the kindness was returned?* *Kaisa felt the dribblets pooling on the very tips of her fingers, and simply flicked back at the Vastayashai'Rei, precision splashes of liquid striking their cheeks. Strangely, Kaisa herself actually* smiled*, feeling... elation? Joy? She wasn't sure, but her half-laugh cough hybrid seemed to draw away more than a little bit of the dirt on her skin where the water fell.* *The little girl from long ago had shined through the shell of a monster, even if for only a short while, something that surprised Kaisa greatly. Something she thought lost to ages past fell back in where it once was.*

The mask of a monster was worn, seeing all things that she could not, and it stirred her awake. Outwardly, it would have looked like she had been awake the whole time.* *Kaisa turned her head to the side, looking at Neeko rather sleepily, still holding the three-eyed gaze.* *However, the mask seeped away as she blinked, using the rather flat edge of her knuckles to rub away the morning crust along her eyes. Kaisa sighed, clearly having caught less than a few hours of sleep.* "Right..." *Kai'Sa stretched their legs, causing a minor influx of adrenaline - just enough to wake up in a brief instant. They clawed into the tree, and crawled their way down the central trunk, launching off of it and landing on the ground when close enough to do so safely.* *They moved on, same as before, relatively silent in the march west. Kai'Sa rarely spoke, only staring onwards as the two moved.* *Hours into the walk, it had begun to rain, sunlight draining away to shade. Kai'Sa stared upwards, seeing streaks of dull blue dribble black, blops of cold striking their eyes. It was painful.* *Kaisa blinked, feeling the rain on her face and chest. The second skin absorbed the liquid, feeding her if only barely so. "It's not much," she figured, "but it'll have to do."* "What is this?"

The appearance was eerie and rather worrisome, the gaze being very unsettling for the brief moment it was on Neeko.* *They looked elsewhere, slipping off the rock after seeing something move nearby their point of observing.* *It was nothing more than minor shiver of the wind in the dense underbrush, a small being rolling along. Kaisa breathed for a moment, leaning against the base of a tree. She looked down at her hands, hardly able to see the taloned fingertips.* *They slowly traveled back to the tree where Neeko was sleeping, silently crawling back up the tree.

"It is a nothingness that isn't a true nothingness. It was there at the beginning, but do you really know if it going to last out to the end? Can it devour eternity?" "Or can I devour it?" Wolf asked, his toothy grin perhaps more unsettling than any voidborn Kai'Sa had met yet. The void wanted to consume the universe, but Wolf looked like he actually could at any moment and without warning. How could he, though? One spirit against all existence? "Sweet young Kai'Sa," Lamb continued, answering the girl's implied question directly, "we are always there. People do not see us because they don't want to. And we also do not always want to be seen." "We are hunters, stalking our prey," Wolf emphasized. "Everyone meets us at some point. Some even spend their lives trying to," the white spirit continued. The two stared at Kai'Sa as she carefully stepped around them. Their gazes remained blank and the eyes behind their masks were simply pale lights. Lamb was even more unsettling to look at than Wolf. At least Wolf had a mouth and some amount of facial expression. Lamb's face was entirely hidden behind a mask of the deepest black covered in dust and ashes. The Void itself couldn't possibly look as cold and uncaring. "Those ones are always fun to chase," the black spirit added.

"I don't want to find out." *Kaisa looked at Lamb, again shifting her weight from one leg to the other; her nerves were almost on end. The skin was crawling in her spine and torso, giving them a momentary shiver. Even that which was and was not her didn't like the Kindred, their presence, and their purpose.* *Instinctual fear from an organism so simple in nature yet unbearably complex that Wolf could smell it on them, but the skin did not know - not fully, at least. It did not think, but it felt everything.* "Hunters can become the hunted in places where day has no permission to shine, where night is all but reality." *Kai'Sa looked the two over again; whispy drafts of essence, yet the air was cold and still - no, this was* not *natural, and they knew it.* *They feared it. Hated it.* *Yet they stood and talked to it.* "But there is nothing that can hunt a world that hunts everything at once."

Kai'Sa slowly walked around, looking up towards the tree for a brief word.* "My eyes stay open, yours shut." *They moved on at this point, head constantly scanning about, the three violet eyes shimmering somewhat.* *They seemed to take stay up on top of a large boulder, staring around.*

One of their claw-like hands slowly reached down towards the water, touching it for a brief moment. The ripples sent through it would have made a few reeds wave and bob for an instant, wherein their head twitched upward upon seeing the motion. However, they recognized the cause and effect chain, and turned back to the water - it has an intellect to it.* > *However, they did seem quite lost in something in the water. They were making movements, hands near their head.* > > *Something nearby caused a slight crunch in the underbrush, off to the right; the form's head snapped in that direction, a strange flash of violet over the front of their face. They seemed to stand up, knees bent and seemingly ready to move if needed.* > *The small creature that did so seemed to hop forwards, staring around. Tiny, barely even visible.* > > *At that moment, the form seemed to straighten their back, standing up more. Their body was likely defined as a woman's, but they still looked... wrong. They seemed to take a step or two, which then cued the small amphibian to launch themselves into the pond. They took a moment, leaning over near where the creature entered, appearing to be staring down into the water, looking side to side for it.* Ah! What a strange, yet familiar shape. Both known yet alien, mixed together into one. Whatever this was, while not human entirely human, looked like human female form, with perhaps some additions. A few extra features, like fluffy ears, tails, feathers, scales... all of that wasn't so strange, so to see a humanoid shape with some added features wasn't so bizarre. Well, that was enough observing. While more may have been a better option, sometimes it's easier to just ask someone, or something what their reason for being here is, especially when they seem so out of place. And hostilities, if they couldn't be avoided, was something Ahri was well equipped to deal with. Though she rarely showed her fangs, alongside all of her magic, agility, and strength, was a trump card, the power to dominate a mind, to remove all free will. With a slow, and cautions motion, she stood from her place of hiding. From there, she made no attempt to advance, simply letting whoever this was know she was there. "Are you lost?" A harmless questions, something to draw attention, if they hadn't noticed. > [{quoted}](name=Unexisted,realm=NA,application-id=jxzFAe03,discussion-id=MAqkPZ4V,comment-id=01f0,timestamp=2019-11-03T16:16:04.250+0000) > > (( Ahri I have a server in discord that I need a mod, would you help me?

Two massive shoulder-growths seemed to be dimly alit with a somewhat eerie violet shade from within it's fleshy appearance, while the woman's body was covered almost entirely in an equally disturbing layer of rock-solid chitinous hide and flexible under-flesh.* *A good number of scars running through the second skin would have been made over years of fighting against Voidspawn; a great deal of these scars were old, somewhat irritated pink slashes and gashes across the body.* *Upon hearing the soft-spoken voice behind them, Kai'Sa instinctually spun around, began to run to the side and vanished in a flare of violet-red energy enveloping their form for a brief moment, before reappearing in a similar glistening of light roughly two meters to Ahri's direct right, a set of angry-looking crystal blades seething with energy aimed right at her.* *Their three eyes stared at the Vastaya, sensing their bodily warmth, and partially seeing into their flesh and thin organs. A moment or two would pass where they stared at Ahri, held perfectly still, only moving enough to breathe normally.* *However, after that, Kaisa showed herself. The mask vanished in a glow of violet light, revealing the unnaturally pale woman beneath the skin. She blinked two or three times, eyes adjusting to the direct sunlight that Kaisa was now in.* "Usually someone else is the one falling in to a place they can't get out of without help." *The blade-crystals slowly dissipated, as Kaisa began to walk forwards, her voice holding a slight delay at places and heavy Shuriman accent.* "Now it's my turn to play that part."

Just realize the fact that Kaisa has, in the past, out-and-out vaporized a man before in under a second. *The creature screeched for a moment, before blinking; the left eye blinked and seemed... to heal, within a second or two, though not without a scar. This time, however, it bit down on the man's arm, tearing into flesh and scraping the bone beneath. As it pulled their massive quad-mandibled jaw away, the ragged tears of meat coming off was disgustingly chewed as the jaws snapped and warped in and out, tearing apart the man's removed biomatter.* *As it consumed this small amount of flesh, the monster's head began shaking as it backed up, seemingly poisoned for a moment, before their damaged eye popped and flickered, and was healed over completely. It arched it's arm up, screeching and swiping downwards - just as a set of energy bolts struck it's side, causing the beast to become off-balance.* *Kaisa made her strike from a distance, a pair of energy spikes held near her fists, firing another set of energy bolts that seared the creature's hide. It clawed at the edge of the crossing-growth, managing to stay upright, if just barely so. It was wounded yet again, clearly vulnerable.*

It's probably the best lore story Riot has written. I love it. )) After Kai'Sa wandered away from the carnage, she'd begin to think she was hearing things. "Do you really think so?" an unexpected and soft voice asked. "I like this one," another, very dark, voice commented. "Wherever she goes, the hunting is good. I think she would make a good chase." "But look at her. She has hardly lived at all. The best hunts are the ones with determination, aren't they? She doesn't have the strength to run for you or the resolve to stand in front of me, don't you think?" the soft voice mused. "She can run fast. We've seen her." "Maybe we should stop playing with her and just ask her herself." What a strange conversation. Who was talking? How did they get here? How did they survive that particular mess? Maybe all the solitude was messing with Kai'Sa's head. A quick look around, however, would reveal a strange white creature wearing a black mask sitting on the soft, sandy ground and a black spirit wearing a complementary white mask floating in the air beside. The soft voice emanated from the white one. "Would you like to start running?" she asked. "Or do you have the resolve to stand and face us?"

They faced down the direction of the voices, almost firing off a set of bolts, their breathing rapid and deep. However, Kaisa slowly forced her arms downwards, aiming to the ground as she straightened out, staring at... staring at something. She blinked repeatedly, the mask of Kai'Sa falling, and stared at the Kindred, confused.* "Far better that my bolts find them than the chittering hordes below. They would have been torn to pieces, eaten alive... or worse." *Kaisa seemed to stop moving after a moment or two, unsure of what this mirage was, or its meaning.* *Their skin twitched, the right claw clenching shut.* *Her eyes snapped from Wolf to Lamb, still not understanding what they were.* *Kai'Sa knew that there was essence, but also knew it could not be absorbed. It was not food, but it smelled like it.* *The confusion made Kaisa nervous, but willing to stay.*
: If It Draws Breath... It Meets Us... (Ask Kindred)
>Welcome back. >Before you ask, I'm starting a new one and not trying to continue what was done in the past. >The intention is for the Kindred to make an appearance similar to that in the short story involving the masks. It might be that they appear from mass slaughter or death? Not 100% sure on that though. *[Wandering away from a burning waste of cinders and death,](https://leagueoflegends.fandom.com/wiki/Monstrous#VI) Kai'Sa found herself alone on the desert plains, tracks slowly being made in the endless sands. They were tired, but well and truly fed; the Voidborn provided all the energy they needed. Kaisa was deathly silent; yes, she would be their monster.* *But that didn't mean she wanted that.* *The man slain was a fool, a moron, and the sort that is dangerous to have lead others. He dared not heed the warnings and move, instead choosing to stand and fight - a noble thing, for certain.* *But a damned stupid choice.* *"But what about the people inside the structures?" She asked herself. "Did they deserve their deaths? Were there more than simple fools in there? Children who knew nothing of it?"* *"Children like me?"* *Sighing in guilt, Kaisa simply stared out from the guise of Kai'Sa, of the monster itself. She spoke aloud, to herself.* "Better they died than suffer the Void." *She eventually wandered far enough away from the fires to where they dimmed out, and knelt down.* *Kaisa exhaled, staring downwards.* *Nothing but the howling wind and the voices in her head.*

A few patches of dense moss near a fallen tree, as well as a small pond off a ways.* "We'll rest here." *Kai'Sa's face returned, eyes glowing in the dimness of twilight. She took to climbing up one of the nearby trees, and waited in the branches for anything to come forth and threaten herself or Neeko.* *Sighing, Kaisa stared at her own hand from above, wondering how much of* her *is left, where she ends and the creature begins. A common musing that she had, and just like normal, it was pushed aside.

There was a contemplative silence as the creature prodded the fire with the staff that was little more than a big stick, amused by the sound of a short throaty chuckle bouncing off their surroundings in response **" and are _you_ sure you are in the right place, child of sun and moon. Let me take a look at you."** With that said she looked up taking a proper look at the girl that came back, or so the rumours told. Razna preferred to judge a person in person, as a high priest of Shurima she had taken on more audiences and confessions than she could ever hope to remember. Gesturing at her with an open hand she spoke once more while resting her hands and chin on top of the staff. **"Strong Shuriman features. Marked by the Void. Though surprisingly uncorrupted I'll admit, else I suspect we would not have this conversation."** > *She stood before this... person, staring at them. Kaisa's back was straightened, and she simply waited. Kaisa took seemingly paranoid steps towards the fire, blinking more and more frequently with each of the few steps. However, she did not sit, merely standing a short distance from the dimmest part of the flames.* Caution. Expected, but not unwelcome. Faking an offended tone at her hesitation **"_oh_, fear of old defenceless ladies? Worry not, no harm shall come to you in this place child."** A unshakable confidence in her voice belonging more to a leader than the broken form before her. Leaning to the right and down grunting from a severe onset of back pain while grabbing something from a bag neatly tucked behind said rock, pulling out two medium-sized hard looking bread bits white in colour that could be mistaken for flat rocks. Holding two bits up she waved with her right hand, for Kai'sa to take it. **"I take it you are still familiar with our cusine sun and moon?"** Evidently it was rock bread usually carried by travellers or adventurers, decently flavorful when heated up by fire and smoke it tasted slightly sweet likely baked with a small pinch of sugar mixed in for flavour. Besides that, it was slightly monotone to eat but satisfied hunger unlike anything else. Well, either way, she set her bit of bread to rest against the flames, a minus of this bread type was that it was actually uneatable unless heated up by something very hot. Thus it's affectionate naming from many a tooth cracked on its hard surface. Some also said it taught patience from its long cooking time. Once heated up the rock bread became soft and cracked turning a brown to black colour depending on how charred you'd like it. Already Razna's piece started to heat up, still white but with black spots on its surface. Rolling her eyes at Kai's stubbornness **Sit- conserve your energy. The night is long after all, as capable as you likely are you aren't immune to exhaustion. Would it help if I told you my name?"** Hand on her chest she gently bowed her head. **"I am Razna. I gave up my family name once I took on my duties, but that was long ago. May I know yours, child of sun and moon?"**

Do you not understand?" *Kaisa didn't care much for talking. She simply glared at Razna, eyes slightly inked in violet shade, while there were clearly a set of odd growths along the edges of her skin - mostly where Kaisa ended and Kai'Sa began. To say that her expression was that of irritation would be an understatement.* *Their skin crawled under the thigh-chitin, and Kaisa's muscles twitched in response. It wants a feast.* *"Not again," she spoke inside her mind; "Not if I can make them run."* "If you don't leave, then this place will become your grave." *Kai'Sa's skin flexed in response to this phrase, causing them to shift their weight from one foot to the other. It* wanted *the bloodshed, it* needed *the splash of gore and the sensation of red seeping into purple. Its hunger was that of the Void, but Kaisa did not dare give in to it. Not easily.* *Not without choice.*
: [She had been watching.](https://docs.google.com/document/d/1WTVc7bUIoWLO73mBB_T5NRtXa_SOpi6KOYjCfdtRRkc/edit?usp=sharing) For a long time, Kai'sa had ran around fighting the Void in Shurima without neither support or any official faction allegiance besides humanity. Emperor Azir had not taken much notice, far too busy ruling an expanding empire. But the high priestess of the reborn capital a broken Baccai remade in the light of the sun had been watching her for a few months now. Not personally but through traders, soldiers, and scouts. They never interfered or bothered her, though the huntress might feel prying eyes upon her back during this time. Only a week ago this attention drawn to the Void woman came to a slow stop, by the end of the week none seemed to persist any longer, for reasons unknown. As Kai'sa passed through [mount-ever-pass](https://www.desertusa.com/anza_borrego/photos/IMG_0162_2.jpg) while evening had started to spread whether in search of shelter, food or just cause there was a creature there to greet her seated in shade under a natural rock formation leading into a cave. Clad in golden white robes with an old walking staff in hand this creature seemed not human but did not smell Void, a long and broken tail wrapped over her legs the rest of it resting on sand below. Hunched over her robes seemed to contain something heavy on her back, maybe wings but it was hard to say due to its bulk. A humble brown cowl covered her features where her hunched stature hid the rest. Before it laid a comforting crackling fire that was occasionally prodded by an oversized arm holding the stick. To Kai'sa approach she raised her head revealing what almost looked like a sickly version of a dragon, its features heavy and eyes glowing with a burnt orange colouration but nonetheless a welcoming warm smile on its features. Gesturing to the fire with her left arm that was heavily stumped in growth, "you've been quite busy, haven't you? Come, warm yourself." Its voice was a slightly feminine proud one despite its broken appearance, with a hint of it being a command and not a kind gesture out of goodwill. _It did not shy away from Kai'sa' outlandish appearance, not even an exaggerated gasp or a stare. But maybe the answer was a simple one in this case..._ ((I can send a letter if you wanna do it more formally, just throwing you a bone.))

A strange... person? Monster? Creature would have been squatting at the pond, seemingly lost in something lurking beneath the water. Or perhaps their own reflection?

While unnatural in some ways, like the purple plating that covered most of their body, their overall frame still appeared human. From her vantage point above in the trees, Ahri watched with cautious curiosity. Despite the odd noise before, and strange feeling that lingered, whatever it was didn't seem hostile, or at the very least, it wasn't the impression she got. Still, better safe than sorry, and spending a few more minutes concealed above to better understand whatever this was, was certainly a good idea. > [{quoted}](name=Pócki,realm=NA,application-id=jxzFAe03,discussion-id=MAqkPZ4V,comment-id=01eb0001,timestamp=2019-10-03T14:21:04.434+0000) > > "Um .." Kamilah stopped in her tracks, as she began to explain herself. "No .. I'm not lost, I was just out taking a walk through the forest and to my surprise, I saw you standing here. You're like one of my inspirations, you're so strong and independent and beautiful. Any Vastaya should look up to you." Kamilah smiled at her. "We're from different tribes and obviously aren't the same race but I still look up to you. I've heard amazing stories about you." Kamilah said to her as she began to twiddle her fingers, nervously. > > Kamilah took a deep breath before speaking again, afraid that Ahri would be weirded out by her. > > "Sooo .." Kamilah said biting her lip as she began to rock her body back and forth. "How's your day ..? What are you doing out here? Do you like listening to nature too?" She said, excited that they may have something in common. "Do you come out here often ..? Maybe we could walk together one day and you could tell me some more stories and other interesting stuff about you." Kamilah said to her, as she began to smile again .. this time about 3 times wider than before. Ahri listened, and waited, until Kamilah had finished speaking before she replied. "I'm an inspiration to you? An inspiration for what, exactly? And stories? What amazing stories have you heard, may I ask?" There was some instant distrust based on her words. Ahri couldn't recall any stories of her that were kind. Tales of a demon fox who lured people from their homes and feasted upon their souls, but nothing kind... Or so she thought she'd finished, when another barrage of question were thrown her way. "I often wander, though where and when is more of a whim than anything planned. And yes, I do enjoy being in nature, the sounds, smells, sights... it's relaxing. If you'd like to walk with me now, I'd like you to answer my questions first." She took in this woman's features for the first time, a quick glance from head to toe.

They were making movements, hands near their head.* *Something nearby caused a slight crunch in the underbrush, off to the right; the form's head snapped in that direction, a strange flash of violet over the front of their face. They seemed to stand up, knees bent and seemingly ready to move if needed.* *The small creature that did so seemed to hop forwards, staring around. Tiny, barely even visible.* *At that moment, the form seemed to straighten their back, standing up more. Their body was likely defined as a woman's, but they still looked... wrong. They seemed to take a step or two, which then cued the small amphibian to launch themselves into the pond. They took a moment, leaning over near where the creature entered, appearing to be staring down into the water, looking side to side for it.*

It was dark, at first, voices from a distance. Then I wandered in through what someone I met called a 'rupture.' I barely survived the first long while, had... this-" *She motioned to her own body, most likely meaning the external layer that served as her second skin, continuing on;* "-thing begin to grow on my arm. It helped protect me, let me feed from the creatures from below." *There seemed to be a moment or two where she looked to the ground, sliding her fingertips against her palms. The thin flesh there seemed to get minor gashes from the claw-like digits, which quickly sealed.* "Been hunting and running ever since. This place isn't where I remember coming out to in the past, though - it's green. Warm still, but the air here has a certain damp clingyness to it. Not like home, though. Too hot." *Kaisa sighed, taking slow steps towards neeko.* "I don't know what I am anymore. But you aren't a walking meal to me - just another hunter." *Kai'Sa inhaled sharply, seeing movement in a nearby brush; the three eyes glared down, talon opened and a small pool of energy beginning to form in the palm.* *Then, a moment later, a diminutive creature hopped out, staring upwards, an oddity that Kai'Sa deemed a probable non-threat.* *Kaisa, on the other hand, was curious as to what it was. Small, green with a lightly colored belly. Large legs... nothing that she's seen before, that much is certain. She would have stared at it from a distance, somewhat confused, leaning low to the ground and trying not to move very much, only observing.*

I meant her breasts. >*yah.* *The growing stopped after that, as Kaisa was left rather uneasy, as she looked at her now trembling hands. The moment she thought of control over them, they simply grew perfectly still, and snapped shut and open. A minute or two later, and her hand-eye coordination was back to what it once was - better, even.* *She sighed, closing her eyes, eventually looking back over to Neeko.* "I've not had that happen in... a long time. Not since it first took growth to my arm." *She stood up, and her bodily silhouette was somewhat different; standing slightly to the side, it was clear her ~~how to put it without getting flagged by mods...~~ upper torso ~~(?)~~ was noticeably more streamlined into her general form, the hardened carapace that had grown there dispensing the shape into her form far better than before. Aside from that, her lower back and abdomen seemed to have grown very small portions of chitin there as well, probably to prevent damage to vital organs and bone structures.* *Kai'Sa had become an efficient hunter through the twelve years or so she had spent inside the Void, but it was clear that the second skin wasn't just alive - it was reactive. So to counter the injuries sustained, it learned where best to stop itself and Kaisa from being injured.* *Kaisa, on the other hand, seemed wide-eyed and perfectly awake at this point.* "I... may need something to eat. I've not done so in a long while, but it might have been part of why this happened. Taking out that rift... I pushed myself beyond what I normally would have been able to do." *She sighed, and offered Neeko her hand - then closed it almost immediately, walking to a tree.* *Her hand was against the tree, but she seemed to have just been staring at her hand for the moment.*

"Either head westward until I can see the lifeblood of the world flow inwards, back to the golden symbol of the sky..." *Kaisa's voice seemed to have recovered at this point, probably due to movement and more active breathing.* "Or southwest, down to a place you should not follow." *Kaisa's movement would be best described as, again, a wounded dog crawling to it's hole to lick the wounds clean, but there was something else to them. She was sluggish, seemingly on the edge of collapsing again. Maybe... something to eat, some fresh water? Mortal-people tended to need those sorts of things, so that might be a decent start.* *However, Kai'Sa did not want or need to stop - they would have marched all year if it meant clawing their way back to the Void.* *Kaisa, on the other hand, was barely conscious for most of her walking. With the lack of mental strength and physical capabilities needed to move on her own, the external skin she wore was now a burden rather than a boon. It weighed a surprising amount, given how it had always felt in comparison.* *A few hours into the walking, Kaisa dropped in a shriek of pain, and began recoiling as the skin began to feed on the only thing it had avalible to it. Before, it was just a tingling sensation, a slow-burning sting. Now though?* *Now it was a white hot iron pressing in from all around as it was forced to feed on her to survive. After the first minute, Kaisa managed to simply grit her teeth, and kept the pain from showing as best she could. The sensations subsided almost twenty minutes after they started, and Kai'Sa had feasted all they need.* *Kaisa lay on the ground, twitching and gasping from the reeling aftershock of such pain and suffering.* *At this point, her body had begun to change; the fingers were far thinner, more needle-like than before, and her toes had begun to fuse into solid chitin spikes. Claws for fighting. Her chest had gained new growths, leading up to her clavicle bones; a solid chitin growth of bone across her upper torso had begun to form, while dark skin had grown over the pale human beneath.* *A forced evolution, in the flesh - quite literally.*

Don't... don't worry about it." *Kaisa seemed to take a moment, looking at her hands. She heard Neeko's momentary sound of pain, and put a hand onto their shoulder.* "Relax. I don't plan on finding the endless fountain here... and neither should you." *She stayed like that for a brief moment or two, before slowly getting up, their movements sluggish and seemingly inept. Almost like they hardly had control over their own body. Kaisa managed to take a few steps, but tripped over a small root or split in the ground, and fell to a knee, barely avoiding a faceplant. She simply stared back at the spot she'd failed to have noticed, and sighed.* *Something wasn't right with her, but it was clear that Kaisa was most* certainly *not giving up. With the rupture sealed and little else to do, she began walking in a direction she guessed was about where west should be. Though not very efficiently, or with any modicum of swiftness. The grace and poise of her movements gone, Kai'Sa simply traveled like a wounded dog limping back to it's home.* *The pace would have been easy to follow, and track, at the very least.*

There was also a sizeable welt on the side of her head from the strike, already turning a bruised violet-yellow. Her breaths may have been steady, stable, but they were labored.* *She slowly stirred awake hours later; first, a twitching of the hand. Moments later, Kaisa's eyes slowly peeled open, trying to sit up.* *As Kaisa began to push off the ground - almost got to her knees - Kaisa fell down onto her stomach, grunting in pain.* *She then looked up, and saw Neeko sitting there and staring back at her.* *Kaisa took a moment, trying to speak, but seemed to stop short of words. A moment or two later, she did manage to speak.* "Good to see... I'm not having to drag myself again." *She leaned over a fallen log, one arm over it. The color in the odd streaks and center of her massive shoulder-growths seemed dull, almost fading out.* "Is it... did it work?"

Saw what had happened to Neeko...* *She stood, for a moment, staring down at the other, levels of concern rising - but pushed aside the second she heard the howls from below.* *Kai'Sa strode forwards, phasing in and out of vision, before releasing a titanic wave of minute energy bolts; a swarm unlike any Kai'Sa had forced herself to summon before, nearly a hundred individual bolts of energy, began slashing into the soil around the twisted knots of flesh and sinew that had begun to grow and manifest near the rupture.* *Kai'Sa heard the screams from below, felt it in her own heart, but ignored both, expelling even more energy into the power itself. Over a few seconds, the two knots were decemated and macerated into a fine paste, wherein the rupture collapsed in on itself, leaving Kai'Sa stranded on Runeterra.* *Moments after this, Kaisa took a few steps back, extremely light-headed, and moved towards Neeko. She took around five or six paces before dropping to a knee, trying to get back to her feet and instead collapsing to the ground. Kai'Sa was exhausted, hardly able to even move their own limbs, while Kaisa clawed her way towards Neeko - barely concious and forcing herself to do so, eventually winding up eyes staring at Neeko's closed.* *Kaisa's own eyes soon followed as she fell unconscious, both from the blunt force trauma and the fact that her own body drew energy from both the second skin and her own flesh and blood.*

Kamilah wasn't saying "end this here" as in end the communication with Kaisa. She was saying put an end to that specific letter so Kaisa wouldn't have to take so much time off of her work to read a long letter. Apologies for the confusion, but I just felt kinda confused when you said "it was a pleasure" as if I ended the roleplay but if you're putting an end to the roleplay then that's fine too, Just clarifying ..))

What happened shortly after... wouldn't quite make sense.* *The ground rumbled for a moment, and a shriek of agony seemed to rise up from the rupture itself - ear-splitting in volume, it only lasted a brief moment or two. Something clawed outwards, a piece of itself pulling out of the rupture. Kai'Sa moved forwards, stepping past the rupture and readied to destroy the second growth.* *As Kaisa began to strike at the growth, the rupture moved again. Something was clawing it's way out - something big. It's howl was deep, loud and... pained? Angered?* *Regardless, a limb burst forth - lightning fast, far too fast for it's size - and struck Kai'Sa in the side, sending them rolling across the ground and grunting in pain. Kaisa started to get up, the mask having fallen away, but was dazed and out of breath, confused and barely able to focus. The limb retreated into the Void directly after, though there would have been an odd croaking-groan from the edges of the rupture itself.*

Better than her own voice, in fact, for singing.* > *So Kaisa began writing back.* ((It wasn't my creation, it was audio of someone singing on youtube that I cropped and adjusted. Simply only intended it to be used for RP purposes.)) Kamilah was sitting down in front of the mailbox as she nervously bit her nails, desperately awaiting feedback from Kaisa about her recording. _Does she like it ..? Does she not ..? Do I sound horrid? Do I sound horrific?_ Kamilah stressed herself out as her brain began to feel like it was being clenched tightly. Suddenly .. _**Thadump !**_ A letter arrived in the mail as Kamilah **lunged** herself into the mailbox as she reached deep inside to fish out the letter, pulling it open before ripping it open on the spot. The first thing she noticed was Kaisa saying she listened to the recording before she began to read the entire letter, >"Kamilah, >"I listened to that recording. Practice and hone that skill, if it's what you feel would bring you the most joy in the world. > "And I'm dead serious when I say this - you are absolutely gifted in that regard. > "Your singing voice is far better than my own, especially when it's raw. I absolutely needed the pitch corrections in post." > "As for stage performances, surprisingly, we only have a few planned out. It's not the number of performances that make tours troublesome - it's the locations, and the distances between them. > "Sure, we could do about five a week if we stayed in Valoran City, but then we'd be missing out on being elsewhere, >inspiring others. >"There's a lot of economical reasoning to not stay in one spot as well, but that's besides the point." > >"If we end up going near your area, send me a letter through corporate. I'll try my best to get you some tickets and extras." >"K/DA LLC, Kai/Sa" Kamilah's cheeks were blood-red as she blushed up from hearing Kaisa's extremely kind words and she even agreed to try to get her to one of K/Da's shows when they're in the area. Shrieking loudly, Kamilah raised up off the floor before bumrushing into the front door of her home. She ran into her room as she leaped into the air, spreading out across her bed. She was so happy .. Kaisa told her she was truly gifted. I guess this meant Kamilah couldn't give up, Kaisa sees something her apparently. She grabbed some pen and paper and began to write a letter back to Kaisa as her cheeks were still as red as ever, >Dear Kaisa, >Thank you so much for those kind words, they mean a lot to me. I'm really glad that you think highly of my singing voice, I promise I'll keep practicing. I won't give up . I'll have another recording for you sometime soon, I promise ! I'm going to start making another one right after I finish writing this. >Thank you a lot Kaisa, you've given me a lot of advice and insight in this short period of time that we've been talking to each other. I adore you and **your** talents even if you're not the best singer, there's no way I could ever top your insane dancing skills or your ridiculous amounts of bravery, being able to go out and perform those stunts like that day after day. >Well, I know you have a busy schedule so I'll go ahead and end this here, my next letter would have another recording attached to it. Don't stop being amazing. Lots of love, xoxo. >Love, >Kamilah ♥ . She folded the letter, putting it in the envelope before licking the seal and sealing it close. Then, running out of her room to run outside and drop it into the mailbox. Flipping her hair to the side, she looked up at the sky with a big smile displayed across her face.

Be well. *Kaisa was working on a pile of paperwork easily up to her eyes on the desk, slowly chewing through it with many typed files and forms. By the end of the night, her eyes were quite well bloodshot and the third dose of caffeine pills was laying used on the floor. She only got through about half of it before the mail-flap shuttered and clattered, to which Kaisa turned and stared at this newest letter.* *She walked over to it, picking the letter up and realizing who it was from - something to distract her from the mess of paperwork that was before her. Sighing, she began to hand-write out a letter for Kamilah.* >"Kamilah, > >"I'm writing this letter out by hand, both to give myself a break from typing and also so I can keep my writing skills up. ~~Hopefully you can actually re~~" *A momentary lapse of judgement, for sure, solved by a quick strikethrough of the text.* >"When this gets to you, just know that the only thing holding yourself back from doing anything at this point is you. If someone says you can't do that which you wish to do most in life, ignore them - prove them wrong. > >"Kaisa Adyn."

It's strength peeling away the few tangles off itself, shortly before being stunned into submission as it was struck by the popblossom and began to fall.* *It landed hard, in a very loud thud that would have caused the ground to shake for a brief instant. It was stirring awake, hissing and shrieking at the two before it.* *Kai'Sa, eyes wide, surged forwards for a brief instant. She would have faded out of vision from the right of Neeko, then suddenly reappear on their direct left, and unleash a barrage of energy missiles - easily two dozen of them - which collided into the creature's form, tearing through carapce and splitting it's shell.* *Even after this, it lived, even if just so. Kai'Sa continued their onslaught of destructive force, beginning to fire more and more of the traditional energy bolts Neeko had seen before. Eventually, it died, but the firing continued, ripping pieces off of it. Eventually, even those pieces began to be targeted as they seem to have lost their mind, attacking the corpse over and over and over.* *After almost ten minutes of desecration, Kaisa stopped. She was breathing heavily, slightly shaking. The mask was dropped, and Kaisa pushed past Neeko, blood still slowly pouring out of the wound. She took a slow walk back towards the rupture, and aimed downwards at the first of the three knots. She stood there for a moment, simply staring down at her hand, to the knot.*

If we don't close this rupture, this whole place will become exactly like it." *She continued on, the rather sharpened talons proving useful in uprooting smaller shrubs and the likes.* *It took her a few hours, but the ground showed to have signs of a large plant, unlike what would be considered natural. By the third, Kaisa stood and sighed.* *Three large knots of some kind of mangled material were poking up from the soil, slightly moving. Kaisa was staring at one of them, a general expression of disgust on her face.* "We destroy these growths, and it should collapse in on itself." *She sighed, closing her eyes for a moment. It was, at that moment, that something ripped out from the rupture itself. An alien-looking, corrupted avian ripped itself out, screeching before flapping it's four massive wings to try and take to the skies yet again.* *Kaisa, caught off guard by it's sudden appearance, was struck across the chest and neck, and felt the gash bleed. She fired off a trio of bolts after it, but missed.*

A slight twitch in Kai'Sa's shoulder, as her eyes shifted to the right for a brief moment before turning back towards the rupture. In the distance, something was moving in the underbrush, but Kai'Sa relaxed. Too small to be a Voidling - a mature one, at least.* > *Turning back to Neeko, Kaisa still was waiting on the answer.* > > "I've seen these ruptures closed with it before. That could be easy, with the timing." *She took a step or two towards the Voidling that lay slain on the ground, and summarily picked it up, walking towards the rupture, and threw it back to the Void.* > *Walking back to Neeko, Kaisa only said one thing on the subject;* "Cleaning up the mess I've made." Neeko watched Kai'Sa's body language as she studied every bodily movement, facial expression, and change in posture. Neeko's mind wandered off into nowhere, as her brain went blank before she snapped back to reality and remembered that Kai'Sa had asked her another question. "O-Oh ..! Y-Yes I do ..!" Neeko said to her, cheerfully. "All Vastayashai'rei or .. 'Vastaya' possess spiritual magical powers, there are multiple different tribes and races of Vastaya which come along with different styles of magic, attributes, appearances, heritage, and culture." Tilting her head a bit, Neeko's expression changed from cheerful to rather confused as she examined Kai'Sa some more. "I am- .." Neeko's expression fell blank as she lowered her head, before looking back up at Kai'Sa with a rather solemn expression. "I **was** of the Oovi-Kat but the Oovi-Kat is no more .. Neeko is her own tribe now ." She said before taking another look at Kai'Sa, reading her features as she looked her up and down paying close, precise attention to every detail. Taking a dive into Kai'Sa's mind, Neeko began to read her sho'ma, until she learned how to fully mimic her posture, personality, abilities, attributes, etc. Closing her eyes, Neeko tilted her head back as her arms rested against her hips. Suddenly, Neeko's physical form lit up in bright colors as her physical attributes slowly faded away until they were no longer visible and all that could be seen was a silhouette covered in a magical aura. Slowly, the magic faded as a physical body was revealed from underneath but it wasn't Neeko. It was **_Kai'Sa_** or what seemed to be Kai'Sa. Neeko-as-Kai'Sa stood across from what was seemingly a mirror image of her current physical form. Rolling her neck and shoulders, Neeko-as-Kai'Sa looked at Kai'Sa as she positioned herself exactly as Kai'Sa was standing, with the same bad-ass mentality. Neeko had a pretty good interpretation of Kai'Sa's mannerisms and tone of voice which allowed her to almost perfectly imitate Kai'Sa's voice. "And this is only one of my many abilities," Neeko-as-Kai'Sa said with a rather-intense tone of voice of which Kai'Sa frequently spoke with, looking her dead in the eyes as her eyebrows arched, weight shifting from one foot to the other. Neeko-as-Kai'Sa rolled her shoulders back as she cracked her neck before blasting the ground with a plasma bullet seemingly identical to the projectile Kai'sa had fired at the mini-creature earlier. Neeko wanted to smile but she had to maintain Kai'Sa personality so she simply gave an emotionless smirk as she awaited a response from Kai'Sa as strands of hair dangled in front of her eyelash wrapped up into a tangled mess, while the rest of her hair was either tangled up as it rested against her back or tangled up on the side of her face as it rested up against her cheek.

When it fell back, seemingly pulled away, Kaisa's face pierced back through the veiling, and continued doing what she felt was necessary.* "Keep an eye on that rupture, and destroy anything that comes out of it. Okay?"

Thanks for letting me know, lol .. totally didn't realize it until I read your post. I'm doing great though, thanks for asking.)) Neeko flinched as she clenched her eyes shut, quickly looking away from Kai'Sa as she ripped something out of the creature's corpse. However, she opened her eyes as she let out a gasp as Kai'Sa began to speak to her. She looked back over at Kai'Sa as she noticed that her fist was clenched and whatever it was that she had ripped from that alien creature thing was in her hand. It seemed to be shrinking as if she was draining it because the violet light that seemed to be energy slowly got dimmer and dimmer. "Neeko does know things about this place, Neeko can help you." Neeko said, as she pulled herself up onto her knees as she sat on with her hands on the ground in a doggy-style position. She noticed that Kai'Sa's suit had begun to light up as the object in her hand completely fizzled out. It seemed as if she was gaining power, getting stronger, absorbing whatever it was that the organ, intestine, thing had flowing through it. Neeko picked herself up onto her feet as she stood across from the woman, with her hands up in front of her as she twiddled her fingers nervously. Her knees were bent as they went inward touching one another and her ankles went outward as her feet were angled inward. "What should Neeko do?" Neeko asked the woman, wondering what she should do next.

Is only natural. *Kaisa turned back towards Neeko, looking them dead in the eyes.* "Can you use magics?" *Her eyes narrowed slightly, weight shifting from one foot to the other. A slight twitch in Kai'Sa's shoulder, as her eyes shifted to the right for a brief moment before turning back towards the rupture. In the distance, something was moving in the underbrush, but Kai'Sa relaxed. Too small to be a Voidling - a mature one, at least.* *Turning back to Neeko, Kaisa still was waiting on the answer.* "I've seen these ruptures closed with it before. That could be easy, with the timing." *She took a step or two towards the Voidling that lay slain on the ground, and summarily picked it up, walking towards the rupture, and threw it back to the Void.* *Walking back to Neeko, Kaisa only said one thing on the subject;* "Cleaning up the mess I've made."

Yet this woman just... kept going, digging in the corpse for something.* Neeko let out a high-pitch shriek in reaction to Kai'sa blasting the creature. It caught Neeko off-guard as her nerves were already worked up and on high-alert. She was surprised by the fact that the woman asked for her name, considering she stated her name in her previous statement. The woman must not have been paying much attention to Neeko's words as she seemed to be pre-occupied with digging through the corpse of this creature which Neeko found to be quite disgusting. Nonetheless, she answered the question that she was asked. "Neeko is my name." Neeko replied as she gave the woman a nervous smile. Regardless of the fact that the woman wasn't even facing her direction, Neeko still felt the need to smile at her as she answered the question. The fearlessness and bravery of this woman excited Neeko, she already earned Neeko's respect. She reminded her of a brave, strong, courageous huntress that Neeko had encountered in the jungle some time ago. **Nidalee** . Neeko still remembered her name. Unsure what was going to happen next, Neeko couldn't bring herself to watch what the woman was doing as the sight of the creature's body being practically dissected and examined brought nausea to her. Not to mention the horrible smell, it made Neeko sick. However, the woman seemed not to be bothered by it one bit. Neeko admired this woman's capabilities and independence. Neeko thought to herself, murmuring a bit; _"badass", yes .. that's what she is .."badass" ._ Neeko said before she snapped back into reality and fear settled back into her system.

An organ, some sort of aberrant growth perhaps? A parasite, even? Regardless, they pulled the small thing out from the Voidling, and held it firmly in her hand.* *It slowly began breaking down, growing smaller every second.* "You know this place better than me. The Void has only begun to spread here, so there might be time to stop it from growing further." *Kaisa, still draining away from the strange object, turned towards Neeko, the mask now dropped once again. Her skin was alien-levels of pale, colorless, and clotted with blotches of dirt and grime. What hair pushed over the front of her brow was lengthy and an absolutely tangled mess.* *The second skin was, by comparison, a strangeness surrounding Kaisa, something else entirely. It was taunt, sleek and very tightly forming to the woman beneath, but that was only what it conveyed on the exterior.* "What's the best way you can think of to make sure nothing ventures remotely close to this place again?" *At this point, the small object was maybe the size of a small coin, and the energy inside of it had flown through Kai'Sa's limb and into her second skin, which began to have organic lines light up and begin to glow for a brief moment as the last of the organ's power was drained, the second skin flexing and warping in response to the newfound energy.* *Kaisa's own expression went from neutral to a seeming sense of pleasure for the briefest of moments, before opening her eyes again. They now had a tinge of violet in them for the briefest of moments, before it was blinked away.*

She was completely unaware of what was going on around her in period of time that she was unable to awaken. A few moments passed, Neeko's eyes began to twitch as she began to blink her eyes slowly awakening. As she started to try to lift herself up, she noticed that one of her arms were being held. Neeko shrieked in fear as she kicked away from whatever was holding her. As she scrambled a few feet away from them, she looked up at them to see who or what it was. To her surprise, it seemed to be a woman. A human woman. But, she had weird looking clothing, I guess it was .. armor ..? It seemed to be attached to her body which made Neeko wonder if she was actually human or if she was some type of Alien. Neeko tried to gain enough courage to speak but she stammered over her words and felt her stomach begin to fill with butterflies. Human or Alien, this woman was beautiful .. and scary. Neeko began shaking her head side-to-side, frantically trying to see if she was dreaming. She then looked over to see if the violet light was still there but she couldn't really tell from on the ground as the brush was blocking her vision so instead she quickly re-directed her focus back onto the woman in front of her. "N--N .. H- .. Neeko is pleased to mee-et you !" Neeko finally pushed these words out, praying that this woman was friendly and wouldn't try to slash her throat. She felt like her heart was in her stomach as her gut felt like it was in a knot and her fists were clenched. She closed her legs as she squeezed them together tight, still looking up at the woman as she forced a smile across her face regardless of the fact she was scared out of her mind. Her tail laid flat on the ground behind her as she rolled her tail up tight behind her as she began to clench her tail as well.

The grass tickled the soles of her feet as her tail swayed happily behind her. Neeko felt a rather strange presence as her blood went cold and her body froze. Rotating her neck about a full 120° she noticed a violet light shining brightly in the distance. It gave Neeko butterflies as she felt extremely nervous. Even so, Neeko wouldn't let a little nervous feeling keep her from finding out what was going on. With that being said, she made her way closer and closer to the scene of the incident, quickly crawling from bush to bush. She eventually concealed herself inside of a bush that was about 150 feet away from where the violet light was coming from. She peeked through the bush to see what was going on as she saw a weird, freaky-looking little creature crawl out of the ground where the violet light was beaming out from. The energy that was surrounding this opening in the ground was so powerful, Neeko could feel it pressing down on her even from where she was watching from afar. Curious to see what else was down inside of this opening in the Earth's soil, she concealed her sho'ma sending to out to gather information and look down inside to uncover what laid down below. As her sho'ma got closer and closer to the opening in the ground, Neeko's physical body felt more and more pressure. Neeko was in pain, but she was determined to see what was down there so she kept on pushing her sho'ma towards the violet light. Her sho'ma made it to the opening as she began to yell out in pain, she hadn't felt pain like this in a long time. Taking one quick peek with her sho'ma, she pulled her sho'ma back to her as she fell back onto the ground, falling out of the bush. Her body had endured so much physical pain that she was physically unconscious. But, she had an instilled image in her mind of what she saw down in that opening in the ground.
