Akiko gasped as suddenly the small cat form of Bynxis fell off the bright icy blue crystal to land in a heap on the floor. Akiko tried to stand and rush to his aid, but her legs wouldn’t respond, in fact most of her body was numb, but not nearly as bad as her mind was. Blinking and giving her head a shake as if to clear the fog she tried again to stand. Her body felt ungodly weak as if she’d been laying still for so very long, tingles shot up and down her hands and feet into there limbs giving her a sensation most unwelcome! She shook her head once again and looked down at herself as a flare of fire from the Mar’s Crystal flared once more. Light from the fire helped her to see she was wearing her ceremonial dress! And she was on the floor, mother would be displeased. But why would she need to put this damn thing on anyways? Small Lady wasn’t getting married anytime soon that she was aware of.. Hell Pegasus was still back in Andromeda - last she'd heard … So why was Bynxis here and not their normal flying Celestial Guardian!? All this and more were piling up in Aki’s mind as finally the crystal beside her fractured and she could see Shakau’s face finally. She squeaked “Shakaku!” And once again tried to stand, why was she in crystal…? Then suddenly the pieces started to slide into one another, and just as suddenly her body started to regain its motion it seemed. Slowly she hauled herself up to heeled feet and took a teetering moment to stabilize her slender form. “Shakaku Wake up!” She yelled over her shoulder while moving to the crystal Bynxis has last been on. She hit the crystal and nothing happened. “Oh no… Come on! What the hell is happening!?” She was close to tears, something Aki NEVER did, in complete and absolute opposition to her mother, she’d learned at a young age just how much of a cry baby her mother had been and swore Never to be like That… She would follow her father’s footsteps. So for her to be close to them now was a sign of the brevity to their situation. Bynxis seemed to be motionless for the moment and Aki moved to him her legs already hurting, weakness throbbed through her body. “Bynx… Bynx… Please wake up… Please tell me what to do what is going on?” Sitting there trembling another fracture rippled across Mar’s shard until finally freeing her body to drop her unceremoniously onto the ground amongst the crystal dust.
