"Aaaand my calculations seem to have been a little off... Well fuck," The coffee mage grumbled out while peering over the shoulder of Madeleine. Yes, he was determined to stay hidden behind him, and no, he did [i not] wish to leave from there anytime soon, especially not seeing his taunt only seemed to [i help] boost Licorice's power. Do not taunt the dark mage with old threats about Clover, he mentally noted. That was no issue, though, Espresso just had to look for another opportunity for he and the holy knight to flee. Admittedly, that was easier said than done considering they were in mining caves and worrying about not getting injured, but Espresso did indeed manage to think of something. "Maddy, swing batter batter," He called out, briefly gesturing from his flaming coffee bean then to the stalactites above, hoping he'd understand the idea he had. Said idea could go two ways, the first of which being that the cave got closed off from the mildly violent explosion and cave in on itself, and the second of which being that the stalactites above came plummeting down. Either way, it served as a wonderful distraction to flee. He didn't want Madeleine to fight for him any further than he had been, after all, especially so if he got injured.
