Kit lunged forward as Dinohumon froze. This was a dangerous move by far. However, she couldn't really depend on Artemis too much. She had to protect Dontae. The girl acknowledged that had to be the absolute top priority. So she dove close to the Dinohumon and stabbed the hilt of a baton towards its jaw. It had tough scales, no doubt about that.
Paopao yowled her dismay. "Kit get away from there!" Her human did not listen for a moment, scrambling to roll to the side. Whether the attack hit or not, she was sure of one thing: he was a swordsman. And he was one who faced forward.
"Kit!" Kit paused for only a second to grin. Then she ducked to the ground as Paopao charged, leaping towards Dinohumon with a snarl. She lunged toward the Champion's legs. Kit smiled to herself as Artemis moved, nodding firmly to herself. She stepped back for a few seconds before ducking under a violent swing. Paopao grabbed her by the scruff of her neck and yanked her aside, throwing the girl up on her back without a second thought. Paopao was not a particularly fast individual, but she made up for it by being a ridiculous tank. She let out a particularly fierce howl of Retribark.
Kit hoped that the other two could get out of the way. From watching earlier, Retribark seemed not to discriminate who to hit. "Wait a second Paopao," she murmured gently.
"Kit," she protested as the blade loomed closer. "What are you thinking?"
Lark smiled shyly. "Don't worry. It's going to be okay. Just wait and see. Now go for it!" Paopao lunged forward, leaving Kit to duck into her partner's back, avoiding a painful sword strike. "Phew," she murmured. "Aim for the legs again, kay Paopao?"
Kit raised an eyebrow and nodded slowly. "Got it then." Putting two fingers in her mouth, she let out a high-pitched whistle. Then she knelt carefully. "If we go with your strategy Dontae..., try to watch my back, kay?" She smiled at him and winked. "I can hit a bit rough, but if one of those swords gets me, I'm a goner you know? Your shovel could take a better hit than these" She gestured to her batons. "I'm counting on you guys."
"You," she informed the Dinohumon with a smile. "Talk too much."
Meanwhile, Paopao whipped her head around. She had heard that clear as day. "Kit!" Without hesitation, she bolted down the building steps, rushing back to her partner's side as quickly as physically possible.
Kit glanced at Dontae. She spun a nightstick in one hand. "Well... yeah, I can. Probably... but..." She hesitated to do it. Her face tightened with dismay. "What about your friend? Will he last that long?" She steadied her footing and took a few deep breaths, trying to calm the adrenaline in her blood. If she had too much or it came all of a sudden, it might trip her up. She couldn't risk that with Dontae and Artemis' lives on the line. Not to mention if Carlos saw...
There's not a thing to worry about, she reminded herself. You're a small target and that's a big blade. It can cause a lot of damage, but it's unlikely he's as flexible. I just have to make sure he doesn't hit. She glanced at Dontae. Does he know that? "Artemis," she suddenly said, her voice oddly calm. "Can this guy move all that fast when he's attacking?" She wasn't too worried about him listening and interrupting. The Digimon, if he was as smart as he looked, would already know this. It wouldn't mean he could counter it though. Not that easily against more than one opponent.
Hahaha, Paopao is a little bit less trusting than Kit.So she pretty much doesn't like any of them right now. Plus, unlike Kit, she is probably a lot more aware that the two of them are hiding something. Kit however, probably does not care if they are. xD
