Denis chose a spell from his HUD, uploaded it to his brain and after a moment a faint ball of light appeared before his body.
It made him more visible in the night, but it was still better than stumbling and falling. He silently cursed his ignorance as he ran through dirty alleys of Chicago slums.
A gun in his hand felt more like a water pistol than an actual weapon, but he was reluctant to throw it away.
It would be equal to surrendering here, to admitting that he was at the mercy of his pursuer. A neon lamp, which he just passed by moment ago, exploded hit by an invisible bullet.
She was getting closer.
All because of his rape fetish and a bad habbit of not really focusing on what he reads. Mainly because of the latter one.
When experiences Virtual Reality has to offer became insufficient for him, Denis started to yearn for something genuine.
For a true rape, in which a real, living girl (or a boy, as he wasn't very picky) resists his urges. That's how he found in the Stream a web article about people, who "want to be raped".
Though if he would actually read entire thing, he wouldn't end up in his current situation.
The article was about a social phenomenon known as Yuushakakushi or Killbait,
where young successful people baited and killed potential muggers or rapists just to kill them a moment later to relieve some stress.
Needless to say he wasn't going to get himself killed over blowing some steam after a stressful day, however it seemed, that it wont depend solenly on him.
A loud explosion and a sound of something crashing with wall could be heard. It was 100% her doing. Denis found the girl and arranged meeting in these damn slums rather quickly.
Way too quickly considering, how pretty she was.
No normal girl would agree for something like that, but he was too excited to think about it, as his thoughts were occupied with the presumed softness of her body and screams she would make.
Another explosion occured behind him and the girl crashed with a dumpster in front of him like a fucking ragdoll. Though when she stood up, she didn't seem hurt but just slightly dizzy.
Denis wasn't going to waste time and he emptied entire clip in her direction.
As he expected it didn't do a thing to her, so most likely none of commonly accessible self-defence spells could help him here.
The girl slowly folded her lips to whistle, while the soon-to-be rapist leaped sideways to dodge.
There was no sound, but instead another invisible bullet passed through space he occupied earlier making a considerable hole in the wall.
To his terror the young woman and his would-be rape victim approached him slowly taking her time.
And then she whistled and the last thing Denis felt was something like a massive hammer being driven into his trunk.
