With eyes unimpressed You're sealing the conversations. And are you wondering how things could be? Just staring at the surface, When all the walls have tendencies. But it's not your fault when no one taught you how.

how quick to forget, we are
Leto was much too busy reveling in her own power to notice what the human was doing. It had been decades since she had slipped into her true state, and the surge she was feeling now was more than a little overwhelming. As a silhouette of dark wings appeared behind the sin, she looked up to the hole in the roof with unnerving black and red eyes, seeing the orange light. Already, the sky was hers. In a few seconds, the humans were going to witness true Hell. And to top it all off, the wires binding her would be burned away shortly after. She had never bothered to deactivate Stella Crinita, after all.
Although it was hard to detect within the storm of swirling energy, Leto still felt another arrive. She hadn't noticed it before because really, none of the other humans were any of her concern until after she killed the leader. But the fact that someone that weak was coming into the battle now of all times... did they want to die? She had to see this. Leto looked away from the ceiling, catching sight of another human with blue hair - did they all dye their hair such ridiculous colours nowadays? Not only was his hair strange, so were his mannerisms. He was just standing there staring at the Sin. Not quite understanding what was going on, Leto stared back. She debated on killing him right there for daring to give her such a look, but then let go of the idea. They were all going to die soon enough, anyway.
Wanting to instill some well-deserved fear into the human, Leto looked him right in the eye, giving him a smug expression. She didn't even need to say anything. They all knew what was going to happen; how hopeless everything was. That had to be the reason they were all offering themselves up like this.
When she looked into the human's eyes, Leto suddenly got a bad feeling. She drew a huge blank, enough that she forgot what exactly she was doing at the Vatican. She mentally chased the thought, trying to remember what was going on. She had felt so good about something she had been about to do, but now it was gone. "What..." Before the Sin could say anything else, her mind went totally blank. Her eyes reverted to their normal golden colour and she stared blankly into space for a few seconds as the orange light, static, and even most of her Reiatsu faded. By that point, the golden light from Comet had burned through most of the wires before fading, leaving Leto to drop to the ground with a yelp of surprise.
"What was I doing up there...?" she whined very uncharacteristically before looking around quizzically. She was in what looked like ruins. There were a few people there with her, and they were all holding weapons and some of them, staring at her with weird expressions. She had no idea why. She didn't know anything. Did I hit my head...? Whatever had happened, she felt like it was somehow her fault. And seeing as she had no big fancy weapons like the rest of these people, she didn't want to stick around.
Hoping that they would just continue to stand around looking at her, Leto slowly got to her feet, giving them all pointed expressions that would let them know that she had no part in this and didn't want any part in it. Having spotted a nearby - homemade - door earlier, she tip-toed over to it, as if being quiet would help in any way at that point. After that, Leto took off running. She had no reason to believe that she possessed such freakish speed beforehand. But when the world suddenly turned into a blur, she couldn't help but shriek of astonishment. She was going so fast! The weird people would never be able to catch her. Not to mention, it was fun. However, the fun abruptly ended when Leto caught her foot on a rock. There was a distinct snapping sound and she went flying forward much faster than what should have been possible. She didn't have any time to register what had happened before she went shooting straight through a white wall that was made of some particularly hard material. She shot straight through what looked to be an empty building before hitting the other wall and bouncing back a few feet. She landed on her back, dazed, and stared up at the ceiling. The dull ache in her foot told her something was wrong with it, and because of that, she was too afraid to try and get up. Really, it was a wonder that she wasn't dead after plowing into two cement walls. She didn't feel that bad at all, really. That, coupled with the insane speed seemed really fishy. She obviously wasn't a normal person... but what else could she be?
Leto knew that she would have to get up eventually in case the people had chased her. No doubt, the ruckus she had caused would draw significant attention. So she got up into a sitting position and backed up against the wall she had so recently collided with, only using her uninjured right foot to push herself along. After that, she guardedly eyed the hole in the wall opposite her, hoping that no one would come through it before she formulated a plan of action that didn't involve screeching and running into things.
