"We should..." Swallowing hard, you look between the two attackers. "...We should both go after the cat girl. She's controlling the maid, afterall."
Hikari, or "Theta", nods as you she says that one word. A familiar grin spreads over her face as she points her wand at Chen, and it takes a moment for you to realize it's the same as Renko's.
A small light gathers at the end of the wand and spreads out, making a curtain between you and Chen. The curtain quickly fades, but Chen is left on the ground rubbing her eyes, now motionless. Eliza has also been temporarily stopped, if only because her current master can't see.
A small blast hits the maid and shatters one of her knees, crippling her. At the same time Chen stands up, having made a quick recovery, and flies at you once again. You panic and swing the wand at her, hearing a "thud" as it turns her away.
"...Ah!" Pointing at your wand, Theta laughs. "I've never seen that before!"
...The end of the wand has transformed into some sort of mallet. It looks almost exactly the same as before, only that two of the spikes have become the heads of the mallet. A little red covers the end of it and trails from below the mallet over towards Chen.
"I did that?" Not really asking anybody that question, you twirl the mallet in one hand and watch as a little blood falls onto the ground. "...I really did that?"
Theta ignores your question and flies towards Chen, trying to strike her once more. The cat girl manages to dodge while clutching her forehead and lunges back, drawing a red line across the magical girl's arm. The nekomata then rushes back at you once more, mad as ever, and you repeat your previous motion.
WHAM. Another blow, this time to the ribs. The girl falls to the ground and curls up into a ball, her mouth ajar from the pain. Guilt starts to take hold of you, making you feel sorry for doing this to the girl who's now at your feet. As you stand there feeling sorry for yourself, Hikari has made another lunge at the girl. A second blow to the ribs and she's reverted to her cat form.
The black cat lets out a couple low mews and hisses before turning tail and running off into the streets. "It was probably meant to be a threat", you think to yourself. With her gone, you start to relax, and the wand in your hand returns to normal.
"We... phew, we got rid of her." Theta grabs her scratches and heals them a little, though the lines of the wound can still be seen. "I think we were lucky to hit her like that. She seemed like she was ready to... Um, kill..."
She falls silent and sighs. You still feel as if you're in a daze or some kind of dream, though you know what's happening is arguably "real". Trying to sit reveals that you earned a few scratches on your legs, and in turn makes you realize that your arms have also been hit. They aren't too serious, but they aren't subtle either.
Theta puts one hand over the cuts on one leg and makes them a little less apparent, then does the same for your other leg and your arms. You thank her and then sigh once more, feeling somehow defeated by the whole experience.
"...Anyway, what are you going to do about those clothes?"
She points at your shirt, and you realize that, in addition to a few stains on the shirt, your skirt is almost entirely coated in the nekomata's blood. You try to wipe it off only to get your hands soaked.
"...I don't know. Maybe I'll sneak in and find some other clothes, or something like that."
Gripping the wand in one hand, you wonder if it could make you invisible. Nyom presses against your arm and shakes its head, as if reading your thoughts.
"Well, before you do that-" Theta points over at the injured maid, sprawled out on the ground. "We still have her to deal with."
You stand up and walk over towards Eliza. Without the nekomata around her, her body has started to fall apart again. She's really starting to look like a corpse, but her eyes make it obvious that she's still in there. She starts to cry and tries to move one hand, only to have the skin rip against the ground.
[ ] Leave her here.
[ ] Put her out of her misery.
[ ] See if one of the maids in the mansion can do anything.
