Condition: Bemused, more than anything else
Lee had been around (the block, the world, this life, and any number of other things) far too long and far too many times to be surprised at Ran's sudden summoning of 'elemental water', or that extra octave she'd apparently just added to the bottom of her vocal range. Moderately curious perhaps, but not surprised. Ran collapsing after quenching the elemental's fire was a little more worrying but, yeah, she'd seen that sort of thing a few times as well. It happened sometimes in their line of work.
Heroes got over it - everyone else retired. Or died. Lee had witnessed that plenty of times before too...
Much more interesting to Lee was the speed at which Ran had abandoned her stance on killing monsters as a last resort. Apparently it was only a last resort until someone started shouting and cursing, after which all bets were off. Lee shrugged mentally as she watched Cerulean rush to the water-controller's aid and, satisfied that 'Big Blue' had the impressionable young giantess well in hand, she turned her attention to other matters.
Leaving the still-steaming hole in the wall that 'Sparky' had so recently called its temporary home behind her, Machine Girl walked over to join Lady Freedom and Sterling. As she did, she went fishing in one of her back pockets with a weathered steel hand and, a moment later, withdrew a battered pack of Zhongnanhai Liushuiyin cigarettes. Zhongnanhai, or ZNH for short, were the most popular brand of cigarettes in China, with nearly sixty million addicts smoking around a pack of their cigarettes every single day.The name meant 'Flowing Water Music', though Lee had no idea why, nor did she care as she stuck the carton up to her pretty mouth and pulled a cigarette out of it with her lips. The pack of cigs was back in her pocket and she was lighting up the one in her mouth with a lighter pulled from a different pocket by the time she'd come to a stop next to LF and the Armani suit named Sterling.
"According to our employers", Lee said, seeing that Lady Freedom hadn't yet answered Sterling's question, "it was some kind of creature of living flame, summoned from the elemental realm of fire - or of Phall Curry. I'm a little unclear on that last point."
The Machine Girl took a drag from her cigarette of 'Flowing Water Music' and, exhaling, waved one cybernetic hand dismissively while adding, "One of the youngsters who tried to take the Professionals on before we arrived was a mage - or a mage's apprentice, more like - and it seems like he had access to a spell or two that he shouldn't have." She arched one eyebrow at Sterling and shrugged one of her shoulders, as if to say 'Kids these days, huh?', before taking another drag of the ZNH and adding, "Thanks for the offer of help, by the way."
