Tomoe tried to keep her calm as she walked through the water to Shinosuke. Even though invisible she noticed Naomi helping him and found herself actually smiling. Tomoe quietly took hold of Shin's legs to help Naomi carry him out of the water. While still holding her rifle it was an awkward hold but she had no intention of losing any of the weapons she carried. Dino was in the most immediate danger but she trusted him to get out of it. There was a part of her that wanted to see Dino near death simply so he would snap out of the state of indifference he had been in due to losing his wife.

She tossed her rifle onto the bank of the canal when she was close enough and placed Shin's legs there soon afterward and turned to Naomi with the same smile.
"I...I'm proud of you, Naomi. You could have just let him die and you didn't. That takes strength." It occured to Tomoe that she got the same feeling from saving someone as she did with killing somone, only there was no slight feeling of guilt behind it.
She climbed back onto dry land and stood by to see what Dino's reaction to being attacked would be.
That was when she noticed the alien mask on Dino's face and gaped. "Dino..."
Tomoe left her rifle sitting on the edge of the canal bank and extended her sword. Attacking the mask held the chance that Dino would die but not attacking meant possibly inflicting Dino's fate on the others. She closed her eyes and opened them again after she made her decision. In the last mission she decided that her place in the team was to be the one to do the things that straddled or even crossed the line into evil like sacrificing teammates and friends to save a greater number of people. Tomoe decided that she would carry the burden of being the team monster.
"I'm sorry, Dino" Deciding that no matter what she was hellbound anyway Tomoe once more jumped back into the canal and tapped into the suit's strength to swing her sword directly at the mask on Dino's face. She apologized silently again as she attacked.

Koi Knew he missed, and only was able to watch as the events around him transpired. Somone yelling for help from the canal, the mask planting itself on Dino, Tomoe swinging her sword, an action he himself thought he would have done had he not just saw what Tomoe's shot did, barely seeing is more like. The only thing he could truely muster to say is, "How could we be so stupid!" Grabbing a hold of his x-gun better Koi barks as loudly as he can "Tomoe Back off, Chiv run in front of me, I know whats wrong here. Its the damn mist, it's shortening our range of fire. Tomoe's blast showed me that, why I didn't notice sooner is because of how the difference in mist density messed up our shots. It probably has a layer of shielding as close to it as possible, but even that shouldn't be able to hold up against a point blank range shot with one of our guns." Then grabbing chiv to place in front of him he starts running Towards Dino to try a point blank range shot on the mask.

Most people seeing what Sean has witness would immediately throw them into a panic; but not Sean. But still the guy yelling for help and the mask immediately attaching itself to the drunk guy made Sean a little nervous. Something is up with that mist. Its dissolving our shots before it can reach the target. But how is it doing this?? Hearing the kid barking orders snapped Sean out of thought mode. "Ok no problem. If we die I would rather we die fighting then on the side lines. But you better hope to hell this works". Taking a deep breath Sean shuts outs all sounds, all distractions and once again psyches himself up to the point he only sees the drunk guy and runs full speed to hold him down while the kid tries his point blank shot plan. Sean can't help once again thinking about Tomoe. I have to survive for her, I have so much to say. I have to survive for her.....

Spreading his hands and legs out to get from one foot hold to the other, if you were to see Takezo from far you'd have thought he was like spiderman, but he finally pulled himself out of the canal. His school uniform was covered in mud but thanks to the black suit that he was wearing, we was still warm and dry. He pushed himself forward towards the nearest house. The plan was to use the houses as cover to get to the alien. Takezo engaged his invisibility again (it disengaged when he used his X-gun) and moved.
As he moved, Takezo suddenly felt nervous. He had never used guns against anyone before. What would a school kid be doing with a gun anyway? He didn't feel very comfortable using a gun especially in a life/death situation. Takezo made a decision to make a pit stop at the house he was heading for. Maybe i can find a bat or nice long pipe in there. Perhaps some kerosene or liquor? Takezo wanted some weapons that he was more comfortable with.

Dino started panting heavily once the mask was on his face. He could feel the thing's grip on his face tightening and his fear start to climb.
He stopped. The fear, the panting, the panicking. His mind became clear. He grabbed the edges of the mask, pulled with all of his might and started a roar, quiet at first, but grew into an immense cacophony. He was going to get that thing off if it killed him.

Another fast-spinning cloud of moisture ran all along the blade and up her arm, directing the energy of the sword upward so it missed Dino and the mask.

In the house, Takezo finds a baseball bat, some golf clubs, and a cricket bat in the garage of the house

Dino, using all of the suit's and his might, rips off the mask, as well as a fair bit of flesh. The force of his pull sends the mask flying forward, spinning. Ironically, right onto Tomoe's face. It again fits snugly on her.

Mist once again floods into the cracks between Tomoe's face and the mask.
Tomoe has 1 update cycle to attempt to get the mask off of herself.
Delic, your post won't be counted until you edit.
Sorry guys, I again don't have the time to post the player statuses. Next time for sure, along with an updated map.

Tomoe flailed around in a momentary panic before regaining her composure enough to withdraw the blade of her sword and place the hilt so that the blade would extend in the area where the alien mask began to fuse with her skin.
She took a deep breathed and imagined the horrible pain to come as she extended the blade of her sword and attempted to pry it off.

Koi saw it, but as it appeared for all of his major injuries, couldn't process it as fast as he percieved it. Only this time he was scared as it seemed, even after his mind processed it he still couldn't feel it, like the other injuries he recieved. Maybe I just got us...oh nope here it goes. AS the thought entered his head the rest of his body reached up with him, and with it the loudest scream he ever heard himself scream "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGGGGG GGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG."
He felt weak in his legs, clutching his wound with his other hand. Putting as much preasure on it as possible hoping he could gain some sort of super strength and crush the wound close. After what seemed like decades, Koi finally snapped. It was like everything that had happened ran through his head all at once, and what would probably be a dangerous berserker frenzy to all turned into a dangerous death wish on himself. He had been losing it before, he knew that, but he coudn't stop himself this time.
He picked up his hand and gun, at the same time taking the gun off the hand he then dropped the x-gun, and kind of used his severed hand to wave, to what he didn't know, in fact he wasn't thinking much at this point. Throwing the arm away, he picked up the x-gun and leaving the rifle he looks around to find the mask if possible, and fire a couple of shots at it when found. Then runs towards the canal, trying to get across(somehow) to look for something else thats tasty.

Dino cringed at the terrible pain all over his face. Most of the flesh had been taken off with the mask. Speaking of that...
He wiped the blood out of his eyes and looked around wildly. His eyes landed on Tomoe flailing about with the mask on, a scene he momentarily smiled at. His smile turned into a grimace once he remembered the pain and the fact that the girl would momentarily be turned into a human shell. He couldn't let that happen to her. He scrambled over to her, put his fingers on the edges of the mask, put his foot in between her breasts, and pulled with the same urgency he had done a few moments prior.

Sean couldn't believe that a mere block of ice could do so much; to send him sprialling to the nearest fence like that simply amazed him but at the same time scared him. Sean could only get up in a dazed like state. What the hell happened?!? where did that block of ice come from?!? and why am i not hurt?!? i mean i feel fine. my face hurts a little but i'm fine. Sean collects himself only to witness a gruesome scene; the drunk guy got the mask off but now it was on Tomoe. Meanwhile, the kid he was supposed to be protecting has somehow lost half his arm and was in a berserk state. For the first time ever Sean didn't know what to do; he felt that he had failed. Basically Sean had for the first time in his life lost his cool. He could only fall to his knees and pound the ground with his fists as he feels tears stream down his face. "DAMMIT!!!!!......" ok Sean think.......think.........THINK!!!!!! I honestly don't know what to do.....
