"Cammy... You're right." He started trying to pull out a healing crystal with his nonexistent hand, only to let out a weak sigh and use his good hand. "You did try your best... And you did a good job, you beat Carmen by yourself..
"I didn't mean to lose it like that, you didn't deserve it... I just... my hand," he sighed, "just.. you just need to... learn from what happened, okay?"
He was still upset, his hand was gone and it wasn't coming back despite the healing the crystal was doing. But it wouldn't do to be mad at Cammy.
"I guess I missed the memo saying we're only allowed to save the world if we're nice about it."
"Goddammit, what the hell is wrong with these people," Ramilia mutters to herself.
'Rivia, can you hear me? Have you guys met up with any trouble?'
This definitely didn't feel right, but for the sake of Cammy's fragile state of mind, Rosemary chose to keep her thoughts quiet for the time being. It was only reasonable to feel so cautious after sensing the power behind Carmen's portals and to know just how skilled she was. What made her the most uneasy was the thought of what Carmen might be planning during this facade.

"The part about it being her domain, or bragging how far her portals could reach? Doesn't matter, she's most likely dead anyway. If that's not her splattered all over, then she had to flee for her life, meaning we were to much for her. I can live with that."
'If Cammy hit her with the same attack that vaporized his hand, and the fact that the better part of her body had, there shouldn't even be a bloody pile of body mass.' He thought silently.
Her words to Rosemary echoed in his head as he went over the possibles.
Sloane staggered back yet another step. Damn, Sergei wasn't going down easy.
He wondered briefly how the other group was doing, but decided that they were probably beating Carmen down already. Fuck, why did most of the people he really cared for have to get shunted over? If they got hurt when he could've done something to stave off injury, that would weigh on him later.
'You'll never be good enough. You'll always just be a fool who hurts those close to you. Well, you would be if you survive this.'
Yellow disks of energy appeared around Cammy's shoulders and knees, lifting her up into the air.
Carmen reappears, unharmed and smiling.
"Object lesson, class. What happens when a portal that can teleport things throgh dimensions appears in the middle of your body? This."
One of the portals closed, the one on Cammy's right knee, and the entire bottom of her leg vanished. The portal cut it off so surgically and with such energy, there was no blood spillage and the wound was cauterized perfectly.
"Object lesson 2. What goes around, comes around."
A portal channeled all of Cammy's power she had tossed at Carmen back into the faces of the cadets, with Takeshi taking the brunt as most is released ight at him. The power blowing off his right leg up to the knee and flinging him backwads, shattering most of his bones.
The others are all thrown backwards violently.
