SIDE KL2 FIRE ANGEL With a blasting punch, I dislodge the skull in front of me, finally destroying one of the archers with my flaming uppercut. Its skull does melts with fire intensity. But... Oh no! Cuts along my side and my leg itch, my back aches from being singed. But not time for that! Elijah is back, but protecting Aria from trouble has put him in a pinch. Ki smashing furiously, but no uses, against the other shield skeleton in the way. Arry is hurting bad and Rish is already glowing with light to help her. Kae is still attempting to attack the lord, and keep it distracted from vaporising us with its flames. Seri is incanting her spells, but can she make it? No... It must be Kali. I need to get there. But a charge alones... even with flames boost... too far... Kali runs anyway. Must try. Muchly foolish. Back is wide open to the remaining Archer, and sword edges closer to Aniki's neck. Must be something! Mother. That time she... Kali stops with a screech, instantly crouching so tightly and quickly, that chest slams my greaves. Does actually save me from an arrow to the back. Falling into a runners’ start, only compressed, smaller. Tighter. Almost a ball. Is working though. My adrenaline hits an obscene level. Heart beats like never before. Eyes bulge from intensity of how slow things suddenly appear. The stone behind me buckles and throws up dust. Haven't moved, but the force behind my legs builds by the microsecond, and the power of the compressed energy sets my legs almost on fire. It can't last. My body will explode if storing any more. Will die for surely's. Uncoil! My limbs scream. The heat of the air passing by me soars in temperature. Dozens of joyous Fire Spirits appear suddenly, riding with me like furious S'tavi Megarum riders. Will my movement be as fast as the weird creatures? No. But not just a flash-step either. The Meenaora's Shot-Peck! Everything goes by so quickly, blood explodes from my nose and eyes. But my leg manages to get in front of me. The skeleton knight... its torso and head disappear as my steel-clad foot impacts it. Of course, foolish moves speed keeps going. Wall approaches rapidly. But somehow, this time, Kali just makes it. Release the energy! My hand grabs at the ground. It hurts. Broke it for sure. It's an instant snap, feels it. But it lets me attempt a cartwheel to a stop. Barely. Ignoring the agony, smashing my buttocks into the wall, dislodging some masonry, all stops finally. Thinking that does something muchly bad to my spine as well. But at least... didn't turn into paste. Small gifts of favour, eh? Mother said... wasn't strong enough yet. She was right. Gushes of blood eject from my mouth, and it feels like Kali broke everything, collapsing from the wall into a heap. But manage to squint with one eye free from the blood. Certainly, did it, though. Haha... what a foolish tortoise. Have probably killed myself. As grand as the Little Yuuzu is... don't think she can... Foolish Kali... Stay awake... Some regret. Aniki saved, but never got all love. Very sad. Even though muchly dry from such fire... still manage tear from bloody face. Such foolish. Everything goes towards black, then white. This being in dead book? Yes... likely so... Remembering silly girl times... remembering mother training hard... remembering father's amazing blue glass... remembering foolish scorpions in desert... Yuuzu's prettyness... many fun times... silly Kuro-chan slapped... Hope Kuro gets Big Yuuzu in the end. Aniki saving Kali... Big hand reaching... First man kiss... strangely salty... ... ... ... But the white suddenly goes... everything... sucks away from me. Can't help but out choke a scream because wanted it go on. Being taken from me? Why!? But then realising... actually did scream... Scream so hard from the pain. Kali still lives? Foolish tortoise. Cannot even read dead book properly. No, maybe still dead. After all, light-angel looks like Aniki. Very silly. Look very silly for angel. Kali stupid, thinking... not looking very sexy right now. But even though everything is ringing and my entire body is smashed, the pain won't let me go. Pain... Is the big clue that something is keeping me alive? Aniki has grey eyes, right? Like smoke. Very handsome. Much deepness. So why are they now red? Like Little Yuuzu. Glowing with Light... like Little Yuuzu. Normally not that blonde either. Is secret Little Yuuzu brother after all? Much silly. Can't be so. Strange Angel Aniki kisses me. My spine snaps, and makes me cry in pain. A sending off kiss? But no. Won't be let go? Probably blush like stupid maiden. What is going on? Light is around me. Am... being healed? The pain is still stupid. I pass out. Whatever is going on? ------- Nooo! Kali! Don't sacrifice yourself! You idiot! Still, it appears to trigger something very strange in Elijah. I wonder what that's about?
