In the first fight, Mikoyu finds herself in combat against Urusei. Mikoyu glides forward towards her opponent, moving faster than the other woman and striking her hard in the gut. She moves for another strike towards the neck, then screams in pain, feeling pressure on her mind. Urusei SHALL win, and this test SHALL proceed as planned! comes Longinus' mental command. No! I won't let Aisha get hurt! Mikoyu replies, gritting her teeth. Urusei lands a punch on Mikoyu's jaw that crunches two of her teeth and sends her flying to the edge of the arena. Mikoyu lands on her head with a sickening crack, but forces herself to her feet, cracking her neck as she does so. She lunges forward again, and the left half of her head explodes, sending her to the ground. The referee gulps, and looks to Urusei. "Um...I dunno what just happened, but the winner is Miss Urusei!" the ref declares. Mikoyu's head regenerates, and she staggers to her feet, eyeing Urusei. "I know that wasn't you," she assures the woman, walking out of the ring and sitting down next to where Aisha is and pulling her legs up so that her chin is on her knees.
"We could go in there and say we have more of the stuff he's addicted to," says Shadow with a shrug. "We could then filter out the rest of them and get him...but wait, we're not sure what he looks like," she recalls.
"I'll say it one last time, Saito...I do not wish to fight you, but I will do so if you continue along this course of action," Kenshin remarks.
Miho stares up at Guan Yu, eyeing her sword, which is resting just beneath Guan Yu's sternum. "You could kill me with a mere shift in position, but I would have had to thrust myself onto your Naginata in order to slay you...you did indeed defeat me," she accepts with a sigh as she pushes herself to her feet.
Henry smirks, and looks over to Selphie, stroking her thigh with his hand. "Luckily for me, you don't particularly care to be running things in bed, do you?" he asks.
"You will work for me as mercenaries...honest work, compared to this bandit bullshit," Tanori says. She turns to the slave caravan, and rips the sides off of it, setting the chunks of wood down. "You guys are free now, we'll escort you to Bowerstone," she tells the ex-captives.
Celene rushes to Helena as she stops breathing, and kneels down, twisting the woman's head back around. "You...I'm not even gonna bother, you wouldn't care," she mutters to Christie, letting her life energies flow through the girl before her. She lifts Helena up, and shakes her gently. "Hey, you awake?" she whispers softly.
Jasper chuckles, and nods to Christie as she reaches him. "I had intended to assist you in your fight, but I hadn't anticipated the distance the arena transports you to get to the battleground...obviously, the tournament directors planned for outside interference," he says apologetically.
Anita rests her hand on Kasumi's shoulder, and eyes the man. "...Why not just go on over and talk to him?" she asks, raising an eyebrow. "It's obvious you want to say something to him, and he's like forty feet away, so...y'know, just go over there and say it," she suggests.
Midnight nods his head, and eyes Kasumi and Celene. "But as long as the net effect is positive in the end, I think that's all I can ask for," he says.
"Well, we had to put parts of our limbs on various colored spots," explains Rue, trying to describe the game. "Unfortunately, I can't bend my body as well as she can, so she won most of the matches," he recalls.
Lina shrugs her shoulders at the thought, and Yuffie's eyes narrow. "It's not gonna be another prick like that guy we just saw, is it? My boots are already clean," she warns.
Alexandria shakes her head. "No, it's just...look, I'm like fourth in line for the throne, so I've got to seem like I'm tough, even if I don't feel like it, you know?" she explains.
"I wouldn't know, I have not experienced sexual pleasure, so I cannot describe the happy endings," Christine says. Sarah smirks at this one, and steps out with the towel wrapped around herself. "Now, TRY to control yourselves, boys," she says. "As for the location of my office, it is next to Nasu's," Christine confirms, ignoring Sarah's comment. Vikari steps out from behind the Plague Angel as well, the towel around her body clinging to barely-there curves as she takes a seat.
"I wouldn't know about how the others controlled their powers, but we all manifested different powers. Dean's allowed him to deliver three punches, each with the power capable of collapsing a large building," Ilharess says. 'That was what it was at first...later, his arm was upgraded so that he could deliver strikes of even more power, an unlimited number of times," she explains.
"That would be best, I think," says Geo, nodding his head. "Cockatrice meat...who do you hire to hunt the Cockatrices?" he chuckles.
"Which is why I like hanging out with you," Atlantea says with a giggle. "Speaking of which...hey, is that the town?" she asks, pointing down.
Tina sighs, and shakes her head. "LOTS of fuckup in there, so I had to try and fix it," she says. 'Good, and Tina? Don't say Fuck anymore, you're not old enough," Eve says. "Meanie," Tina says with a pout, crossing her arms.
"Yes, you break it back in your world," Glasya remarks, returning to her throne and taking her seat. :I really should go speak with Fierna...arrange a meeting," she tells one of the Erinyes at her side, who bows and vanishes.
Irene sighs, and looks to the sky. "Hopefully, killing Quarion will remove this curse and allow me to rejoin the proper cycle," she mutters to herself.
"Be happy with being sad? You are truly insane," remarks Clarissa. Jarlaxle coughs into his hand, and smiles. "Well, at any rate, should I show you to your tent?" he asks, bowing. "I will not need to rest. I shall be planning the death of the traitor-queen," Clarissa says.
Anderson raises an eyebrow, but keeps riding. "So, Wilson, wha' else do they call me behind me back?" he asks.
"Being less capable than myself hardly makes them weak, Cartwright," Alucard says. The armored suit that is Alphonse Elric comes into view, and Alucard smirks. "You just won't stop keeping souls here whose times have come, will you, Edward?" the monster asks.
"Hey, Tharivol's after her, and even though I know how loose Elves and dragons are about the whole "sleeping around" thing, I'm not comfortable trying to sleep with his girl," says Melchior.
"He still doesn't understand I was holding back when he tested the Red Queen in combat against me...I've been allowing him to think he is growing close to me in power, but that is cruel," Sky says. "I shall teach him how to defeat a demon of your caliber, but I shall not teach him everything I know until I am certain what ends he will use that power for," she remarks.
Erost looks at Ryu, and sighs. "Okay, sorry," she mutters, lowering her hands to her sides and turning her attention from Ryu. "Story of my life, you'd think I'd be used to it by now," she says to herself with a weak chuckle.
"Actually, I think I might be able to help with that," suggests Mika, stepping behind Emily and activating her fire aura. Cynthia looks up, and blinks a couple of times. "What happened to it?" she asks. "Pheremones are like tiny spores, right? Well, I'm burning them with my fire, so they can't get into people's noses," Mika explains.
