She is bleeding, she can see it running from her hairline, in her enemies shining silver sword.
She wants to back away, find her Diamond, and hug her while the gem strokes her hair and shushes her crying.
But she can't. The rebel Pearl was /right there/, and she swings her sword. Spectrolite only has the enegry to step back and yell in shock.
The blue gem is shaking. Her tired, little arms can't hold up her scythes.
"Come on! Fight!" The Pearl yells, and thats when she falters.
She falls to her knees, unclutching her hands, scythes spinning twice before disappearing in sparkles and her head falls at the Pearl's feet.
"I give." Her voice is smaller than her body. Pearl steps back, sword held close to her chest.
Spectrolite closes her eyes, expecting death or something worse. But the Pearl surprises her.
She takes her sword, and places it to Spectrolite's back. Where her ribbon holds her Homeworld shirt on.
She cuts it off, whispers "Get out of here." And then, she runs.
/Her shoes are noisy./ Spectrolite thinks, then almost laughs at the unimportance of that observation.
