went for the finishing blow but Lisia
had one last trick up her sleeve, also a finishing blow. The audience watched intently as the Dark Elf and the Princess clashed one last time.Lisianthus
summoned a bolt of lightning directly at her, hoping to lessen the effects of the dark orb as well as to hit Seleth
with it. Dark clouds quickly formed in the sky, crackling as a quick strike of hot lightning hit the Princess, yet she was not harmed. It was her element, after all. The Dark Elf, on the other hand, was not so lucky. Seleth
was blown away from the lightning blast and crashed into the rocky surface of the arena.
However, fortune was not entirely with Lisianthus
. Not at all, in fact. Seleth's
multitude of Dark Javelins hit the Princess also, her lightning blessing hitting too late to dispel it. Lisianthus
, too was sent flying into the ground from the dark attack. The clash had no victor as both fighters lie motionless on the stone-themed arena.
The lightning blast from the Princess had sent you flying from her. It was all darkness for you from that. But consciousness soon returned to you. You stirred from your dirt nap and you opened your eyes. Your body was sore and hurting from the hits you took from your opponent but you had enough strength to at least raise your upper body.
You hear the audience gasp in tandem and soon see why. Your opponent, Princess Lisianthus of Razelia, still lied on the ground unconscious. You realize what this meant. You both may have been knocked out but you rose first, making you the winner of this match. The audience was quiet, in disbelief that their beloved Princess was defeated. Perhaps there were some that wanted to cheer for you but they did not want to break the air.
The match's referee confirmed Lisia's condition and confirmed it. "Princess Lisianthus is unconsious! Seleth Thenri is the winner!
" One of the audience began clapping, he was distant but you could swear he looked like Raviel. Then another followed. Then another. Then another. Soon, you were a given a round of applause from the audience. Not a thunderous one, but more of a solemn acceptance that you were the victor.
Lisia was soon escorted out of the arena and the audience followed. You were free to do what you wish, but the pains from the fight was still there so you should probably not exert yourself in anything.
You had cast your lightning blessing upon you as Seleth closed in with her Dark Javelins. You hoped it would blow away the Dark Elf and dispel her dark magic but it was not to be, you see the multitude of Javelins launch at you and darkness overwhelmed you. You briefly felt a small surge of power after but it was too late, you drifted into unconsciousness from the hit.
You soon stirred, slowly opening your eyes to a white ceiling. You rise and see that you were in a bed of sorts and surveying your surroundings, you realize you were in the Academy Infirmary. The implications may have troubled you but nothing was certain for now. Did you even want to know, though?
A figure appeared from the side. A Beastkin of long orange hair with a pair of canine ears, short of stature, wearing a white coat
greeted you as she noticed you were awake. "Ah, Princess!
" You knew her as Doctor Elma. One of the many accomplished doctors within Razelia. This one in particular chose to practice her medical expertise in Seraph Academy.
"Princess, are you alright? Does anything hurt?
" She concernedly asked you. "The fight sure was something, you and Miss Thenri were evenly-matched.
" The Beastkin remarked. "But ultimately, the winner was...
" She trailed off as her ears drooped. You knew what that meant.
and Ecthel approached Juan's carriage. The boy opened the wagon and found the target cowering in the corner. Ecthel tossed some strange dust at Juan and in moments, Juan fell unconscious. The rogue boy threw Juan over his shoulder and exited the carriage. "Alright, I've got him. Let's go!
But then a few razor-sharp cards were hurled their way. None hit Kazudain
but two hit Ecthel on his shoulder, making him drop Juan. "Agh!
" Ecthel fell to the ground as his shoulder bled from the cards buried in the flesh.
The knight braced for impact from Hisana's
attack but it never came for Enishi
had frozen the sticky magic Hisana
While that was a failure, Hisana's
other attack fared better. The cards she hurled at Kazudain missed the intended target but they did hit a brown-haired boy in rogue-ish attire who was in the middle of carrying an unconscious Juan. It appeared you were almost about to fail your objective.
Meanwhile, you see Keith drop his sword and surrender to the Beastkin girl and the hooded man Keith mistook as Enishi. With the fight going downhill fast and finding yourself quickly getting surrounded, it might be a good idea to make yourself scarce for now. Annabelle may not be happy but you doubt she would lash out. She did not seem the type.
Also, you may find the opportunity to finally murder Keith.Rimlian
deflected the shield back to Keith, who did not see it coming. The shield hits the mercenary on the torso causing him to flinch and allow Lumina
to sweep him off his feet. With the staff pinning him down, Lumina
continued the interrogation.
"You can't just leave me with an omen like that and expect me not to bite. C'mon, now, you gotta tell me."
"It's always the same! Every time!
" Keith, surprisingly, answered. "Great magical kingdom! Too big to fail! Then it does, then hell breaks loose. Next thing you know, no more Humans or Dwarves.
" The mercenary continued, only making sense to himself. "But hey, at least the Elves and you Beasties get to inherit the world right?
Keith slapped the staff away and got up, intending to retaliate with his sword. "And I'm not staying to see all of it. I'm only here because Belle bailed me out. I should really just throw her--
" The mercenary stopped, as if he realized something. He wordlessly dropped his sword and raised his hands. A gesture of surrender, ice suddenly forming around to entrap him. The fight was over.
" Keith whispered to himself. "Why didn't I think of that?
