The Great Escape Ch6 bit – Villain Reveal

“How do you forget that?” Kagari yelled across the roof, obviously fed up with the ice queen, the Sekirei, and sapient stupidity in general. “Doesn’t anybody know the meaning of modesty anymore? The girls I know walk around half-naked. Another doesn’t wear underwear-!”

“My ears are burning, Kagari.”

For a moment, the flame Sekirei went deathly still. Turned, as if against his will, to look up and left.

White silk draped over tanned skin, a wide ribbon of white wafting over the brunette’s head as if gravity were optional. Skimpy white shorter-than-short-shorts and a breastband just barely kept her legal as she stood on a higher roof edge, veils blowing in the wind. “Or should I say Number 06, Homura?”

Oh, not good, Tony thought, spotting that smirk. When people figure out your secret identity? Never ends well.

And maybe Fury was actually right, and all the Sekirei were younger than twenty, because Kagari blinked as if he hadn’t realized yet just how screwed he was. “What’s going on?”

“Pull back, Number 07.” The brunette’s voice was colder than her rival’s ice. “This one is my prey.”

Shards floating near her, the ice Sekirei said nothing.

“What are you doing here?” Kagari still sounded bewildered, and terribly young. “Uzume?”

“I told you before.” The voice was still cold, but Tony could hear hidden cracks in it. “Uzume’s gone for good.”

Oh joy, Tony thought wryly. We have a Villain Reveal.

  1. -Digs through wiki-
    Right I think this was the point when Uzume was acting as Higa’s attack dog because he was holding her Ashikabi (Hidaka Chiho) hostage due to her health condition.

        “I will have a complete list of legal, semi-legal, dodgy, suspect and methods that will require Director’s Fury’s aid/resources for review by you and Miss Potts within the hour sir.”

    Yes, he was rather at the end of his tether.

    To be fair, I think most people would be at that point.

    And maybe Fury was actually right, and all the Sekirei were younger than twenty,

    They pretty much have to be since Minaka only discovered the ship twenty years ago.

    Granted, they might have pulled some odd stuff to have the Sekirei PHYSICALLY age faster – pretty sure that they did to get the first discpline squad off and running from what looks like pretty early in the timeline.

    And who knows how the Sekirei age under normal, non-super-tech and mad scientist circumstances.

    Miya doesn’t look any older than she looked twenty years ago . . .

    Oh joy, Tony thought wryly. We have a Villain Reveal.

    More like forced villain reveal as there is a hostage precious to said villain involved.

    But Tony doesn’t know that.

    Through I imagine he and the rest will be so angry that steam will be shooting out of their ears when they learn HOW Higa got her to do his bidding.
