"There's an old train yard..."

Permalink

Nod. "Let us go."

Permalink

"Okay. Do you wanna call your brother first or something? - I'll need to let my parents know I'm staying late..."

Permalink

"Mm. I told him I would return late today. Do you want to borrow the teacher's phone?"

Permalink

"Eh, my house isn't really out of the way too much, I don't think..." Shrug. "But the teacher's phone works too."

Permalink

"- I did not mean you shouldn't see your family first, if you wish. That is fine." 

Permalink

"Cool!" And onward to tell her dad they're going to walk around the city some!

Permalink

Homura can make some conversation about their school project while they walk. She keeps an eye out for terrifying magical sharks.

Permalink

No sharks! But there is a bouncy cheery Madoka.

Permalink

That's much better.

Permalink

They get to the train yard without any problems.

Permalink

How is Madoka going to try to en-magic a baseball bat? Will it involve playing her flute again. Will it involve changing back into that red and black outfit.

Permalink

She does, in fact, need to change back into that outfit! Though the only magic this involves is waving her hand over the bat, which turns into a gothic and somewhat demonic version of itself, with red and black swirls on it and little thorns.

Permalink

That's - astonishing, and very impressive, and very attractive.

Homura reaches out a hand for it.

Permalink

She hands it over, with a "Tada!"

Permalink

"Impressive." She lifts it up and down, getting the feel of its weight. It isn't heavy.

Hmm.

There are some large cylindric containers lying around the train yard. Homura isn't sure if whatever magic the bat now possesses will affect random objects the way it hopefully will a witch, but it's worth trying. She walks up to the nearest empty can and takes a swing at it.

Permalink

It crumples around the bat in a way it really, really shouldn't have with her strength.

Permalink

!!!

Homura wasn't actually prepared for that to be so effective! It's a little exhilarating. She recovers from the surprise and looks back at Madoka. "Satisfactory."

Permalink

She laughs. "I'd say!"

Permalink

"It will be enough to damage a witch?"

Permalink

"I think so?"

Permalink

Hm. Well, they'll find out.

She should obviously practice more first, but it's difficult to know how. "If you throw something, I will try to hit it correctly," she suggests, testing the swing of the bat again.

Permalink

"Okay..." She looks around, finding an old can, and tosses it Homura's way.

Permalink

Homura swings at it and misses by about an inch. 

This is SO EMBARRASSING and she is VERY DISPLEASED, but Homura at least avoids looking visibly upset. She grits her teeth and jerks her head to indicate that Madoka should try again.

Permalink

She throws a bigger can, a bit closer to where Homura's swinging.
