As the group oh-so-bravely ran away, and old enemies got reacquainted, the skeletons tried their best to kill the group, hurling bones at them. Spectacularly bad aim, of course, what with being dead and all. In front of the group was a large church they could easily get to, and had easily defendable doors, and to the left was an alleyway that led to who-knows-where. To the right, another alleyway that ended in a dead-end, though it was a suburban area. Bound to be doors. Decisions, decisions...
The skeleton looked up at Cerr, still chanting a bit, and then going back to hugging the mage's clothing as hard as she could. "C-Celine...'m Celine..." she managed to mutter after a while, then went back to incomprehensible mumbling.
(For now, a much paraphrased version of what happened to Terra, Ethra, and Tiffi)
The 'other team' of the two girls and Ethra managed to finally pick up their weapons and kick Gojo's ass. Hardcore. I mean, seriously, they mopped the floor with him, and in no time flat. He mentioned that he was the Kitchen God, a friend of Sorune's, and quickly obliged the others with the custom items, as they were promised.
The first of which was Tiffi's Flyswatter, a weapon designed to smite bugkind, and enhance her fire magic! It even levels up with her.
The second, given with some weight...was the summoner's pendant. It had been cleared for use by the God, and was given to Ethra, who could use it to summon certain low-leveled monsters.
The third, and with the least thought on the part of the recipient, was something to keep the amulet's power in check. Terra received a special bracelet that would allow her to destroy any summons that came out.
As another sort of prize, the three also received the member addresses of both the gods, along with the invitation to call them anytime.
Gojo then made mention of some sort of problem that had arose with 'sentient skeletons' and rushed off, teleporting the three back to town. When they got back, Tiffi, eager to test out her new weapon, ran directly for the outskirts of town.
And there they found the army of skeletons. And ran right back. Doublequick. Not that this stopped Terra from being swarmed, but she was rescued, quick, and the three of them bolted for the church. And Saori would have to be pretty slow to not catch the pendant on Ethra's chest.
