The dark arrow created a small cloud of dust when it landed.
The others were stunned by the sudden attack.
"What just happened?"
Mimi, Suzuka, Tatsuko, and Nanaki looked at the arrow.
"Someone fired an arrow!"
"It's an attack."
Miyu grabbed Sapphire while carefully scanning the horizon.
"Where did that attack come from?"
She triangulated the assailant's firing position from the position of the arrow.
However, nobody is on the roof except for a lazing cat.
Miyu narrowed her eyes.
Someone fired the attack at Illya.
And, the attacker had superhuman powers, the arrow created a crater in the rock-hard ground.
Miyu grabbed Sapphire.
Illya also turned tense as the situation caught up with her.
"What's going on?"
"I don't know."
"Someone just attacked Illya."
"Me? Attacked me?"
"But, I don't have an enemy."
She looked at the 4 bystanders near her.
"In any case, let us move back to the classroom, we are sitting ducks here."
The six of them got in while Miyu kept an eye on their six.
The clock chimed just in time. Class is about to start.
The arrow also shattered in a poof.
A silhouette blinked into existence near the lazing cat. The cat growled in fright before running away.
With a black bow, the figure clad in red sighed after looking at the distant hole.
"I failed, huh..."
The tanned Illya watched as her target retreated into the school.
"It's not going to be easy hitting her while she is in class.
"Plus, people cannot see her dying. Too many witnesses."
"Yet, I couldn't hold back from firing while Mimi and the others are near her."
"I would like to know why you're so eager to do her in though."
The sudden voice caused the tanned Illya to jolt and jump away.
Alas, this movement is useless.
"How about we stop moving around?"
The hand of the mysterious man grabbed her shoulder.
"Unless you can jump to the other side of the world, the distance between you and me is useless once I spot you."
The tanned Illya used a spatial warp to blink away.
He watched as Illya disappeared through the warp hole and appeared on top of another building.
Wu Yan mused out loud.
"Looks like you can teleport too?"
Tanned Illya said nothing. She grabbed a pair of white and black daggers.
She gasped in shock.
Wu Yan stopped her.
He shrugged when the girl greeted him.
"That was you, right? Furtively moving in the shadows like that. I didn't think you could teleport like that, I must say I am surprised.
"I've seen you using it."
"It's convenient so I copied it."
"Oh, you learned it with a single glance?"
He raised an eyebrow.
"No, I didn't learn it per see."
Tanned Illya said.
"I don't know how you did it and what are the requirements, but, I just wanted to 'warp' so I achieved the effect by taking a shortcut."
"What do you mean by that?"
Kuro (tanned Illya) smirked.
"Why don't you find out?"
"Why don't you tell me?"
"Ara, that would be boring."
She shrugged with Moye and Ganjiang still in her hands.
"Guess, you might get it right."
He smiled at her.
"Seems like you won't answer me."
"Nah, I will try to answer truthfully if you want to know."
"If I want to answer it, that is..."
Wu Yan sighed.
"Forget about it, I am taking you back."
"Oh? Getting rough with me, eh?"
Kuro turned serious.
"You're strong but aren't you looking down on me too much?"
"You are Installing the Archer Card. You're a heroic spirit."
He manifested a magic whirlwind near his palm.
"But, I've fought and defeated multiple Heroic Spirits."
Kuro taunted him.
"Come get me!"
She used a teleport to instantly close the distance. She appeared behind Wu Yan before unleashing a double overhead dagger stab.
She felt a dull thud near her stomach.
Wu Yan and Kuro stopped. The time turned still as Kuro slowly looked down.
Time froze once more as she was defeated in an instant.
