A beam of blinding white light shot down from a sky thick with clouds, centering on Kym and bathing her in a gentle warmth. Under the intense brightness of the light her sweatpants and rumpled hoodie seemed to lose their color before fragmenting into pieces that disintegrated fully.

Slowly, the light from the sky shrunk down to the earth, smaller and smaller, until only a sliver remained, a sliver that became a slender sword in her hand.

"W-what are you?" her attacker cried.
