Babatunde “Akashi” Washington

From the high mounted viewpoint in the shadows, I become aware of the precarious situation. This boat is obviously sinking. Despite my expert swimming ability, there is no land in sight. Rushing through the shadows, building up a head of steam, I leap upwards into the air, but before I do, I manifest a makeshift gliding device, much like the wings of a bird to sail through the night. Sadly, my device fails to work as well I intended, and I am quickly dropping to the sea.

Managing to keep my cool, I, the hand of God, transform the imperfect flying machine into a simple boat, of canoe like structure as I hit the water. Shrugging off the cold embrace of the open sea through cool nerves and a surplus of adrenaline, I quickly Climbing aboard the boat, I morph some of the unneeded hull into a paddle ,and do my best to paddle away from the disaster that struck. A sharp scream pierces through my ears, as I see a woman drowning in the distance. Empathy is a sensation I felt at this moment. Drowning would be a fate that should only be left to those of truly evil nature. Acting on the premise that I would want someone to do the same for me, I paddle towards the distressed woman, and help them aboard my humble vessel.

Turning to better inspect the pour soul, I realize that is the woman who I fought with earlier. They seemed different than the others. Most discernible by their clear detest towards the others. Now might not be the time to pry into the situation, so I silently begin to paddle in the direction the cruise liner was heading, after I make them a paddle.

Babatunde “Akashi” Washington

I observe, one with the shadows as she creates a body double of ice to occupy the many armed beast. With grace, she jumps from atop the mast. As she is suspended in air, my mind quickly prepares to seize the opportunity. Quickly, to preserve energy, I dissipate the beast of many arms, and divert my focus towards conjuring a row of arms along the deck, in organized military fashion. These arms however, are not unarmed like those before, but instead they each hold a javelin.

As Lauren descends to the ground, they throw the javelins in unison with each other with murderous intention towards her body. As soon as they relinquish their grasp on their projectiles, they scurry to form three separate entities, all similar to the one that pursued the woman up the mast. Naturally, they rush her upon forming up, as Babatunde orchestrates the battle from the shadows of darkness.

If Count Dorkula drew Rickard, could the Rickard drawing nullify Rickard?

Remaining cloaked in the shadows like a worm beneath the soil, I maneuver to better view my new found target. The parasol toting woman of earlier moments. I stop channeling the arms that focus upon the other inhabitants, and place more of my focus on Miss Idella. I morph the arms that pursue her into conglomerations of arms that move in spider like fashion, effectively sacrificing quantity for speed and power, as they pursue her up the mast. If they can grasp her from such a vulnerable location, they could overpower her, and possibly slam her into the deck from atop the mast. That would certainly prove unfortunate for her petite frame.

This is an inquiry of pure curiosity, but do bats normally have capes? I mean, I suppose their wings might have a slight cape-like appearance, but I don’t know. Not really a bat man myself. Now if we’re talking bird law, I can go toe to toe with the best of them.

Its fine. It is fine. I just wasn’t expecting for “bat man” to be typed. Normally, as made evident by Louis CK, people when referencing people who do dealings with bats, go well out of their way to avoid saying batman.

Babatunde “Akashi” Washington

As the flurry of action surrounds the ship, I skip away into a nearby shadow from which I have a solid vantage point, and relative safety. I then take the chaos caused by Heart of Glass as the cue to launch an attack at those on the deck while they remain focused on him. From the shadows of those who stood on the deck, including the eyeless woman was rushing away from the battleground, I summon monstrous, though this and nimble arms by the plenty to surround those who I can identify as members of the group selected by Ms Applebottom.

Long, dark arms with grotesque, clawed fingers lunge out towards the ankles of those who attempt to fight or flee, With about 10 or so hands, per person, I hope at least one member of the group will be tripped up, and possibly even immobilized by the summons of which i have produced.

Babatunde “Akashi” Washington

The air rushes past me in a rush as I feel frozen in time despite my intense speed. It must be the adrenaline filling my body, occupying my mind. Either that, or the regret for the actions I took. Sometimes in the flurry of events that exist within this world, you can get caught up in the moment and fail to think through what you are doing. In all reality, this scenario is very similar to a dialogue miscue sparked by nerves or strong feelings. We have all been there. We have not all been flying through the air towards the top of a ship. Yet how is it I found myself sailing skywards towards a mysterious opponent?

I, along with many of the others in the meeting room, reached the sight of the gunshot at about the same time. Quickly, I try to stare down all of them, hoping that Heart of Glass would notice my focus on them, whilst they are all in the same spot. However, I cannot help but wonder if the shot man is the other agent he referenced. As this thought crossed my mind, he teleported away. I certainly do not recall him informing me of the ability to teleport, or vanish. Uncertain as of whether or not that man was an ally, or an enemy, I ponder my next actions. As the thoughts cloud my mind, the ship is assaulted but what must certainly be drawn entities of the Count, considering one’s origin being a nearby painting. I ready myself for a fight, but a water manipulator from our group quickly deals with them.

Now, I am angry due to my soaked status, considering I finally dried off after the hotel escapade. Not to mention I was already itching for a fight after the summoning of ink monsters. Then I hear Heart of Glass shout something about the terrorist being on the top level of the ship. That was it. The ultimate catalyst that put me in this precarious position. After hearing the confirmation that they were not on my team, I went into action.

Dashing into the shadows, I sprint towards the edge of the starboard port at top speed. Fluidly, a large,human slingshot is created along the rail of the ship out of the darkness of night. Leaping, I crash into the slingshot, which I re-position so that it aims upwards towards the terrorist atop of the ship. Silently, my body is flung at an intense speed, aimed directly at the man [Lawrence Traverse]. My body, near invisible is flung, fist first, without any form of contingency plan if I miss.

They seem skeptical, but with alright reason. I am lying after all. So perhaps I am not the most successful liar; I never have been one for telling stories. As they respond, a gunshot echoes across the boat. Was the other agent exposed? If that is the case, perhaps I would be better off turning and attempting to strike this man where he stands. No…that would be foolish. My thoughts are cut short by Kania’s interjection. Accusingly, she asks if I know anything about the gunshot.

With sincerity, I respond, “I know it came from the other side of the ship. We should all check it out. It seems like a rather notable event.”

Normally I would have been surprised by the bluntness, but it seems rather par for course with them, and I can relate with it. They ask who my “friend” was. Quite entertaining how my closest company as of late are those who make threats upon my life. They seem sharp enough to prevent any form of stalling, and determined enough to prevent me from changing the subject. Quickly I attempt to conjure up a believable lie.

“He was simply astounded by my presence on the ship, and thought it would be best to speak with me. Some people have never seen a negro on a boat before. I would not be particularly surprised if it was the last time for quite a few of the inhabitants of this boat.”

Hm. Things certainly seem to be well orchestrated by the Germans. They are certainly more organized than our rinky-dink squadron of anti-Germans. My code name given is just a tad bit lacking in flair, but I find that rather fitting for someone such as myself. I am informed better of the situation, and much to my delight of a bomb set to detonate in about an hour. They have already found Rickard, and Richard. If recollection serves correctly, those were the two talking among each other in the meeting room. They claim Rickard is quite the power to be reckoned with. I wouldn’t of guessed, he looks like quite the pushover. Although this man is clearly more educated on all of us than I myself am. I cannot directly inform them of who my teammates are, but I can certainly point them in the right direction.

Turning towards my right, I cannot help but notice my former adversary off in the distance. I could take Heart of Glass to her near immediately, at which point they could be easily dispatched due to their battered state, and from the looks of thins, their lack of weapon. I truly hate to do such a thing, but considering it is truly inevitable, I may as well get it out of the way. Urging for him to follow me, I stroll towards the eyeless woman, but she quickly begins to stroll away. Following her, I see that she meets up with another member of the crew, the one with the obnoxious umbrella. With a sincere politeness and insincere intentions, I approach them, “Sorry for earlier. I didn’t mean to cause you any lasting inconvenience with the events that transpired earlier. I should properly introduce myself, Babatunde Washington.”

I suppose I have a struck a deal with the devil with my back against the wall. In the long run, I may have made the right decision, but I was hoping to not resort to such treacherous acts, especially after developing a slight respect for one of the members of our party. Regardless, this will have to be water under the bridge, and move forward I must.

Solemnly accepting of my new allegiance, despite my strong distaste for such the dishonesty I must purvey, I ask the man, “So what is next?”

The man quickly turns to a more aggressive state. “I am sorry, but I wasn’t declining your offer as much as I was trying to better find what path was more favorable for me. I’ll be frank; I am fairly certain you are not a lesser evil as much as a newer evil. You could offer me asylum in Germany, but I can assure you that I would not care much for it. That being said, if you lower your feelings and aggression, a counter-proposal may be fitting?”

I stare coldly into his eyes, body tense and ready if he were to strike, but ultimately a conflict against somebody who knows about me, and I know nothing about them would prove less than profitable. “I would be interested in turning coat if I was offered something worth fighting for. I would reluctantly do so, if I was sponsored and supported by the rising German empire to further remove the British from foreign lands. Africa, Caribbean, and Asia. This would be mutually beneficial.”

The truth of the matter is I did not want to turn on those who went about this mission with me, but rather I am not in a condition in which I could fight him and win. My body is sore, and my arm movement is less than fluid. This mysterious man seems to have a dossier of everybody on the ship, and I do not even know his name. The only way I can justify going against my convictions of honesty and decency is by getting him to sweeten the pot. Worst case scenario, he says no, and I subsequently die.

Upon hearing the information and proposition, I cannot help but smile at the similarity between this proposition and the one that got me upon this boat in the first place. However, my face quickly turns to a grimace. I feel this man takes me to be more easy to manipulate than I am.

“You never told me how you know of me, and the rest of us. That, and you seem rather confident in your ability eliminate everyone on this boat. I would rather you scrap your ‘holier than thou’ attitude and just give me the details.”

I hear a sudden clapping and congratulations cutting through the air from behind me. At first I wish to pay it no mind and avoid further interruption from this scenic night, but that plan is immediately broken by a sound that cut through the night like a sharp blade through warm butter. This man knows my name. Quickly, I turn around, shocked by the fact that I do not recognize them in any way. They pose a question, asking me how life is going. Quite the anti-climatic thing to ask. A tad bit of politeness may get me further than my usual presentation of thoughts.

“How is life going? People are born, people die. Earth gives, and people take. Same as always, same as it always will be. Now, on a more important note, who are you and how do you know me? Forgive my bluntness, but I am not in a very chatty mood.”

This ship, this cruise liner is absolutely stunning. The sheer size alone is enough to declare it a marvel of modern engineering. This feeling that embraces me as I gaze upon one of the many toys of the high class of the isles is not rage or anger, but rather a profound sense of pain. These barbaric people own fleets of these luxurious vessels, and yet nothing of compensation has been given. This is not a feeling stemming from a desire for retribution, but rather a dream of equality. These feeling of longing for a cooperative union are certainly strange, foreign, and likely inspired by a lack of sleep, and a surplus of stress.

Shaking these thoughts from my head, I stroll from the bow of the ship, along the port side of the Quickcarriage. I look on towards the loud night. A constant sloshing of wave upon wave upon boat create a soothing noise. Despite standing upon a creation as artificial as a common conversation, I feel at one with the world around me. In this state of relaxation, I could always practice my art. I take to a proper, balanced stance, feet shoulder length apart, hands out at an angle towards the ground. Slowly, I mold the shadows at my feet, attempting to create an incredibly complex being. I work at this molding of shadows for many of minutes before I feel satisfied with what I have manifested. Before me rests a small bird, a pigeon, made from my hands. Daintily I lift it into the air, urging for it to fly away, and fly away it does. Proudly, I watch as it sails away on the sea winds, turning, and circling the ship for a couple minutes before it fades away into the shadows from which it came.

I generally consider a lack of major body parts, whether it is an arm or a pair of eyes to be rather weird. Whereas I would classify batshit as having a name like “Count Dorkula”, or pleasantly napping with major shrapnel wounds.
