Jenso nodded at Jeff, his eyes glowing fiercely with blue lightning for a moment before going back to blue flames. The beam of blue energy began to become more violent at it's very end, as a mixture of blue flames and blue lightning began to lash out from the dragon's head, slamming and digging itself into Yzeira's beam with a good deal of force behind it to dissipate and overcome Yzeira's energies.

It was working. Yzeira's beam did not falter, but the distance between the center of the energy and where he stood was shrinking gradually. His smile faded, shrinking to a scowl.

"What do you know of Rage? What pain could you have born through such trivial trials in such a short lifespan? They are infinitesimal, insignificant, immutable scrapes!" Yzeira's beam grew wider, and more chaotic, bringing Jenso's advance to a halt with a far less dignified form that resembled smoke more than raw light.

Jenso felt something pushing at his back.

"Do not fear it Jenso. He is desperate. Use that. Push harder, now!" Bruce shouted over the noise that engulfed them.

Jenso felt Bruce's encouragement, the will to push on. He was right. They'd come this far, and now was the final moment. The last struggle. "IT'S OVER NOW, YZEIRA!" He roared, pushing back with all his might as the energy within his beam began to glow a whiter, brighter blue and began to intensify in sheer strength.

Jenso's energy rushed through the chaotic swirling mess like a knife through butter, growing closer and closer until it ground to a halt merely a few feet from Yzeira, stopped only by a sudden burst of power that he'd been saving for just this moment. His smile returned while he slid one foot back and pulled away from the beam, suppressing it with a barrier of energy.

"It just might be."

With a thrust of his arms, a sudden rush of hyper-focused energy tore down the center of Jenso's attack, pushing away his energy as it quickly cleared the distance between the two of them. It looked as if there was no chance of stopping it. For a moment, hope was not enough to keep the heroes safe.

A large hand clasped around Jenso's other shoulder and imbued him with a sudden surge of power. Zios stepped up once again, and empowered Jenso's energy so that it was just barely able to stop the oncoming surge of power. But his Meta energy wouldn't hold for long. Zios felt his soul being torn apart as the seconds slipped away.

"You must defend it all, you mustn't fall!" He roared.

All of Jenso's friends stood at his back while Yzeira's beam continued to grow and grow, quickly becoming too powerful to overcome through raw might or precise control, too strong to trick or avoid. It looked like this was the end.

"Do you see it now!? Staring helplessly into the abyss that will force the very fabric of this pathetic little world into tatters, a torrent of malice and pain that will allow the void to flood inwards?! Tell me, Jenso, tell me in your simple way!" Yzeira's beam pulsed again and again every few seconds, matching a ferocious rhythm that fueled his passionate anger. Tears welled down Yzeira's bare face, and the tattoo below his eye hummed with inner might. "Tell me what you SEE!"

"I see..." He mumbled, sliding back as the beam was about to overpower him. "CHAOS." He added, struggling to stop the power from overwhelming him completely. "The last obstacle." He added, gritting his teeth as some of Yzeira's energies began to lash out right beside him.

"The obstacle that threatens all life. But one that WE SHALL OVERCOME!!"

"Heh.. Ha...Hahaha!"

Yzeira's beam began to break through Jenso's final defenses.

"HAHAHAHA!"

Yards turned to feet; Feet shrank to inches, Jenso's beam was being pushed back, until torrents of blue energy were surrounding him and his allies from all sides, his energy being deflected away by the superior power before him.

"YOU CANNOT OVERCOME CHAOS! IT IS A NECESSITY FOR ALL REALITY! AN IDIOT, TO THE VERY END!"

He's... ri..ght...

Jenso felt one last hand, balled into a fist, strike him right in the gut. It made him flinch, but there was nothing there. The voice resounded through his entire body like a fleeting echo. Reality was bending. Red splotches of energy were starting to bleed past his beam, directly into his hands, but he wouldn't fall here.

"You cannot defeat chaos."

"It is necessary for all life."

"But you can push for peace."

"You can push for balance."

The voice flickered in and out of reality, a familiar presence placed its hand against his chest and straightened Jenso's posture.

"You cannot defeat chaos, Jenso."

Suddenly it became clear to him. Yzeira was tainted by the very emotions that he had repressed this entire time. His energy was more powerful than Jenso's now because he'd unleashed the wild, unkempt maelstrom of feelings in his soul. Yzeira knew more pain, more torture, more love, and more loss than Jenso could ever know. It was all true. But the way he handled it all up until this point, it all had one crucial weakness.

"You cannot defeat it like this. You cannot defeat it merely by shouting. You must understand fully, and embrace it."

Jenso could not overpower Yzeira's energy. But he wouldn't have to.

"I was wrong."

He wouldn't have to.

"You can attain peace, your way."

He wouldn't have to!

"You know what you must do. End it! Jenso!"

"A loss is only a loss if you let it consume you, kid!"

Jenso smiled at Nexus and Lark's words. He felt the crimson energy overtake him and burn his skin. But at that very moment, he understood it all. This was it, his choice to make. "I see it now..." Jenso muttered, clenching his fists firmly. "The root of all of this pain." With that, the chaotic energy around him stopped burning him. It was not under his control, but it was no longer harming him for that brief instance. Chaos was not his enemy. It was part of all life.

The blue energy that originated from his beam began to focus around his feet, allowing him to dash at lightning speeds towards his foe as his left hand began to glow a brighter and brighter white. He zipped straight through the center of Yzeira's beam as the pain returned, but he wasn't about to falter now. The white energy around his hand focused around his finger tips, which he aimed to slam into Yzeira's forehead. He was looking to infiltrate his enemy's mind with his energy and permanently remove the very thing that corrupted Yzeira, sacrifising his own energy to do so and threatening his own life. The Void within. He felt the emotions of all of his friends, all of the positive feelings. He chose to use that as his weapon, to overcome Yzeira's chaotic feelings.

The very fabric of the world itself shook as the occurence took place. The two figures of Jenso and Yzeira were enveloped in a massive bright white light, blinding all of the heroes and illuminating the whole tower.

"Dragonic Providence!!!"

The beam did not part, but it could not pass through Jenso's body. Every shred of energy that Yzeira fired halted, attacking Jenso's soul down to its very core. But it did not harm him. Jenso's soul stood resolute, growing even more powerful than before. He rushed through the torrent of energy, accepting all of Yzeira's feelings as he leaped over the gap in the tower that separated them. Yzeira narrowed his eyes and his smile disappeared. He looked confused. He didn't know what was happening. That ignorance made him falter. He took a step back.

"H...How?"

Another step back.

"I'm striking you straight to the core!"

Another.

"My energy.. It's.. My.."

Jenso's figure appeared in front of him as he ceased his beam. Yzeira looked up at him, eyes wide. He didn't know what was going on. All of his power, all of his intelligence, all of his determination. When pitted against Jenso, he should have won. And in truth, he did. Jenso's soul could not take the full brunt of his energy. As he sacrificed it to the brunt force of Yzeira's attack, his powers rapidly dwindled. But that was his plan. That was what he needed to do to end it all. Jenso accepted it, understood the pain with every step that he took towards his goal. Every Millennia of torturous agony that Yzeira had gone through, it seeped into his body like a poison, and with his last step, and final thrust, he aimed to purge the wickedness from the man's mind with the last of his power.

"Prov..idence?" Yzeira whispered as light surged through his body and engulfed the entirety of his tower. He felt it burn him from head to toe. He couldn't react... No, he could have. But then and there, a silhouette of his family assailed in in a flash flood of healing memories. Jenso's power finally reached down to the pits of his soul, and within seconds, the red in his hair began to fade. It faded to orange, then to purple. His eyes began to gain a clarity that hadn't been present before. Crimson streams of void were ripped from his soul one after the other. When his hair and eyes finally reached full clarity, he stood there with a pristine crystalline blue gaze, silent, and un-moving as Jenso stood before him, battered and bruised, his power robbed of him by his own hand, or rather, granted to Yzeira in one final act of kindness.

~ Chapter 218 ~

Providence


Yzeira stood mere inches from the edge of his tower. After the flash of light, all became calm. The darkness of space slowly began to fade away as the tower of chaos, now in pieces, fell back towards the earth. Its dimensional coating began to fade away, and the rock that comprised it slowly faded to gray, turning into normal stone bricks. Yzeira's eyes looked around, taking in the surroundings one detail at a time. He saw it all, clearly. His vision was not stained by blood. It all looked as it should have. Then his eyes snapped on to Jenso.

"What... Did you do?"

Jenso looked up at Yzeira, with a smile. But it wasn't a malicious one. It was a peaceful smile, as relief began to sink into his body. "No more pain." Jenso said calmly to him, looking over his shoulder to his friends before looking back at Yzeira. "No more suffering. Everything is as it should be, now. Chaos has been returned to where it belongs, in it's rightful place." He spoke. The power in his stance crumbled, and Jenso began to wheeze and breathe deeply as the adrenaline of the battle vanished. His pupils turned back to a normal blue, but he no longer felt the energy he once had. He now had the strength of a regular human.

Yzeira's surprise didn't fade. He took a step forward, but fell to his knees before Jenso as well, clasping his forehead as pangs of agony assaulted his senses one after another. He closed his eyes for a moment to think. As the tower re-entered the atmosphere, winds blew upwards, pushing him and Jenso back to their feet again, holding them upright with a gentle, yet sturdy breeze. Yzeira looked at Jenso through saddened eyes. A pain he had not felt in millennia. It was as if he'd awoken from a very long dream. A dream encased in ruby crystals and bathed in blood.

"What have I..." He took a step back, shakily maintaining his balance.

"Jenso!" Jeff yelled, flying over with what little energy he had. The man held his gauntlet up to Yzeira's head while all of his other friends stayed back.

Jenso rose his arm with the remaining strength he had, just barely pushing Jeff's fist out of the way before it would reach Yzeira. "Jeff, stop...it's over. No more fighting. Please." He wheezed to his friend, looking over at his other friends. "It's finally over, guys." He said with a wide grin. He fell down on one knee after his statement, not able to move from his current spot.

Jeff's eyes widened. He opened his mouth to protest, but stopped himself as Jenso smiled, lowering his gauntlet and looking at Yzeira. "Yeah, ok. There's no fight left in him anyways," he quipped, dropping down to lift Jenso up, supporting him with his shoulder. "Good fight." Yzeira looked down at his hands in awe. Tears welled up in each corner of his eyes before streaming down his face. They melted away the tattoo that still remained smudged below his right eye, and he took another step back.

"This isn't right," he muttered, "I don't deserve this."

Jenso looked up at Yzeira and frowned. "Everybody makes mistakes, that's just how people are." He spoke calmly. "But I believe that everyone deserves a second chance. Especially those people that made mistakes because they were in pain and felt tormented." He added.

Yzeira took another step back. His foot slipped, forced a chunk of rubble to fall from the ledge into the massive drop below. He re-balanced himself and looked behind him at the wide open ocean expanse that seemed to go on forever.

Jenso overlooked the ocean as well, not saying a word. He'd made the decision to do this all on his own, and he just hoped that his friends would have peace with it. But right now, he didn't want to talk about anything. He simply wanted to think, and rest. Did he make the right choice? Or did he simply doom his universe, now or after a certain period of time? Nobody would be able to answer that for certain now.

Yzeira looked at Jenso again, staring at the man who had just spared his life, and even more, cleansed him of the void, something he thought impossible without killing the host. But what did he have to live for now? The weight of his sins was too much to bear. He slowly backed away from Jenso, inching his heel towards the edge of the tower.

"Even in victory you are naive..." His foot slipped again, but he didn't step away from the ledge. "After everything I've done, I don't deserve this. Not one bit."

"Then...are you just going to give up?" Jenso asked, looking over at Yzeira. "You caused a lot of pain and suffering, yeah. And it's important to remember that, but you can't let your past control you." Jenso said. "You can live your life doing whatever you want. I know that you're a very driven individual, and also someone who has the ability to do a lot of good in the world." He added, walking slowly towards Yzeira. "You're not one to give up easily. If your past sucks, just do better. Be the best person you can be."

Yzeira's eyes softened, glossed over, but filled with a profound resolution that remained separate from Jenso's whims. "I can be whatever I want," He mumbled, "had you not purged me of my power successfully, I would have killed you. Still now, I wonder what it is that I want." Yzeira turned around, creeping his toes over the ledge of crumbling stone. "Alexis may as well be dead, again. Her body remains nothing more than a carcass, her mind destroyed by the very essence that provided it life. Without my connection with the void, all returns to impossibility while I stand on the precipice of my failures."

Jenso continued gazing into the ocean, giving a small smile at Jeff who was still supporting him. "Not all is lost. When people make mistakes, they learn from them. That's just how it goes." Jenso spoke calmly. "I'm sorry about Alexis, but at least now she doesn't have to suffer anymore." He added, turning to look over at Yzeira. "You've gained a great deal of knowledge after living for so long. Surely, someone as wise as you should be able to achieve great things without relying on the void. Things that can be both powerful and reliable, and that can do a great deal of good in this world."
