"Ashe, I'm trying to engage!" Leona cried desperately as her blade bounced off Taric's shield.
"I know, I'm sorry," Ashe called out from the turret, sniping yet another minion with a glassy arrow, "For some reason my summoner keeps telling me to farm. Get out of there!"
Leona sighed, wishing that their summoners would communicate with each other before giving their champions directions, and retreated to the bush, taking more damage from the encounter than necessary.
She sat in the bush as time passed uneventfully, occasionally jabbing the enemy's Varus for some extra gold if he came too close. He took little notice, relying on Taric to deal with her as he focused on controlling the flow of the minion waves.
"Teemo has left mid lane," came a message from Xerath, "Be aware... Never mind, he has been sitting here this whole time."
Leona sighed and continued to wave her blade in Varus's direction whenever he thought about advancing. Normally she would be trying a bit harder than this, trying to make a good play early on in order to give her partner a nice lead, but she felt as though her summoner were a bit... lacking in effort today.
"Teemo has left mid lane," Xerath intoned again. "He may have gone to gank top lane. Be aware, Jax... Never mind, he was just sitting still for six seconds... How could I have missed..."
It was going to be a long match.
-65 minutes later-
It had been a dreadfully long match, thought Leona, as she helped Xerath secure the Blessing of the Ancient Golem yet again.
"Please don't lose it again," she implored, before heading off to ward the river in front of Dragon. To her surprise, she found Taric standing there. He turned and spotted her, but instead of attacking her, he shrugged.
"We're surrendering," he said, "Something's up with Renekton's and Xin Zhao's summoners, so we might as well wrap this up."
"Oh," said Leona, lowering her blade, "Sorry about that."
Taric shrugged. "It's alright. It happens to all of us."
As they stood there, waiting, the Dragon stirred from the ashes of its pit. It made no move, but stared balefully at them as Taric's team's nexus exploded.
"Good game," Leona offered, before the summoners could spirit them all to the Institute. She said this purely out of courtesy, knowing that she hadn't performed her best at all. She had hardly had enough gold to complete her fourth item. Heck, she even had the biscuit she hadn't used all gam-
All thought was cut off at the sight of the ground rushing up at her.
