✧ — DODGER
(( Please note the message beneath/near my profile picture! I'll be away from home during this weekend and next week, but that doesn't promise inactivity. Just a mild warning. Anyways, here's a post. I tried to push things along as much as possible. Also, Nobody Special , thank you for that Ichiro Suzuki reference. ))
Her head jerks up as Koiso finally approaches and easily mingles herself into the group. She makes a few jabs at Koji, and Dodger doesn’t restrain her snort when she practically bonds over both of them having an eyepatch. She seemed like an interesting girl to be around. Her short snicker is cut off when Koi turns her attention on the pink girl. "Well, Ichiro, anything you specifically need me to do?" The nickname sends her reeling. She stresses the word as she says it too, making it clear she said so on purpose. A fellow baseball fan? If not, she at least knew what she was talking about — enough so to dispose a reference towards her. Dodger’s grin is more of genuine surprise than the usual poison held within her toothy smile. An interesting girl indeed, she resolves. ”Bold of you to assume I’m in charge here.” She sneers, jerking her thumb towards Koji as he begins outlining his ideas in full as they develop further.
As an offensive pair, there’s no doubt she and Koiso would be able to hit their opponents hard. The combined strength of her concussive abilities and Dodger’s overwhelming raw power could easily trump the forces she’s seen so far. Koji as their core would possibly leave them open if the other team would choose to have Sam as an offender. She bites her lip as they come to a stand still. Their strategy seemed to follow an ambush hit-and-run style. It’d be easy for Dodger to get to the flag once she marks her bases, but… ”Ah, no use worrying about flaws now!” She says suddenly, her expression nonchalant but excited at the same time. ”We’ll face those roadblocks when we get there.”
She looks over her shoulder, back towards the forest. It seems all the more daunting, but the shiver down her spine only fuels the fire in her heart. She couldn’t wait to get out there and fight. Their time to plan was getting cut short, the time for action approaching. She stretches her arms in front of her, giving a thumbs up towards Koji with the hand without the baseball glove. ”For now, we’ll hit ‘em first — and hit ‘em hard.” She smirks, giving a knowing nod towards Koi as she squeezes Koji’s shoulder in reassurance. ”So, Leader,” she tugs the back of her hat down, lifting the brim from her eyes, ”let’s go on and show those guys what we’re made of, yeah?”
