Cyla vs Viktoria
The battle was nearing its end. Perhaps already been decided. When Cyla plunged the blunt edge of her scythe against Viktoria, the latter was sent ramming against the earth. Losing control of the climate above, the lightning streamed into the battlefield with such ferocity it would consume anything in its path. Viktoria's eyes, tired and contained, beamed as the flashes of light cast down upon her. It was the end for her. The long wait is over. But as the saviour from the North Blue once said, "Not Today."
She recalled the father who adopted them three before the battle 35 years ago sparked. He said to them as they all headed to a cave to hide. "You won't die. Not Here. And Not Today. Go and find shelter. I will retrieve you here in the cave. And if I didn't manage to come back. There's a boat about 2 kilometres northeast. There's a log pose in there. Find the Blacksmith."
Back to the battle, 2 seconds before she was struck by the storm. Crackling intensifies. As she closes her eyes, the word Blacksmith resonated in her memory. Something they were not able to search for back then due to the World Government interfering with the civil war on that certain island. 1 second remaining. She smiled, knowing that she'd finally meet her saviour. Though guilt is present, for an unfinished business is yet to be closed. Enter Cyla.
Strong crackling. Rolling and deafening echoed in the entirety of her. But much to her surprise, no contact was made with her. She opened her eyes, and she was shocked at who was upon her. Shielding herself with her own body. "!?!"
"W- w- why?!"
, she expressed. Her eyes trembling at the madness. She tried to grab the woman but the intensity of the lightning is on another level. She needed to use something else to pacify the situation. "You fool. I was prepared to die here. I already lost. And it's my will to rejoin my (adopted) father. You won't survive those lightning. All along, they are only limited to stinging at a moderate level. But without my control, it doubles that."
That said, Viktoria has no other choice. Her still functioning right arm beamed with energy. Glowing endlessly before raising it up against the sky, redirecting all the lightning to another region for a brief period. They have 30 secs. As the streams of bolts shot westward, Viktoria places her palm against Cyla's chest, seemingly pulling something from deep within. "I will drain all the shocks from your body. This will hurt a bit. But if left inside yours, it will explode like an energy grenade twice the size of what you tanked earlier. Get ready."
Cyla would most likely scream in pain in the process but she has to thrive. After all, she's from the proud race of the Lunarians. Alas, as Viktoria fully drained the remnants of the shock, she raised her palm further eastward, more specifically the coastal area where the seamen would typically dock. Suddenly, a compressed beam of lightning shot to that location. Ear piercing, radiant, and mad. Within 5 seconds, the beam reached the dock and explode like an energy bomb, bombarding a 5-kilometre radius.
PORT of East Raijin
Vice-Admiral Stainless and his 200 men finally reached the coast and were about to dock. "Alright, boys! We're here."
. However, even without his mantra active, the extraordinary flash of light coming their way is not something to ignore for it rivals the light of the day as it swiftly advanced to their location. He turned right away. "Huh?!"
Soldiers: "It's coming this way."
When they called for the Stainless, he was already gone from his prior post. When they look above, they saw the beam already almost within their grasp until an 8-foot tall handsome man appeared in the sky, a minuscule compared to the compressed lightning. With his long katana in tow, he swung from the right and diagonally upwards, unleashing a concentrated air slash a dozen times bigger that an ordinary one. Employed by Haki, its strength is magnified. "Man of Steel!"
And with that, the beam roared further skywards. Thanks to the heavens and it did not harm any of his men. They continued to dock while Stainless Skywalked back to the ground as his goons hailed in unison, shouting his name.
"That came from that location."
, he said, pointing at the Mansion. "Let's hurry."
Inside the Mansion
Gabriel and Camilla seemed to have both decided to go out and deal with the incoming marines. A force led by a Vice-Admiral and 200 strong soldiers. The front might be easy to deal with but the Vice-Admiral? It is still a puzzle. And two more batches are coming.
"Alright, my Gabriel. Let's go."
, Camille responded. She rushed outside the main door. And as she opens it up. The Mechas are there, watching as the battle between the two women has just been decided. "V- Viktoria?!",
she said, looking at the two bodies. But before her body could even react, her younger sibling already harnessed the energy off Cyla's body and fired the secret technique off the Eastern Port.
"That's the Final Flash! She won't survive that!"
. In a matter of seconds, she raced with time and space to reach her location but it was already too late to stop her. There must have been a reason why she did it.
"Viktoria! Answer me."
, she shook the body of her sister. Cyla is already partly unconscious. "She must have lost control of the weather. But why did you comrade?"
"No! Don't tell me she uses herself as a shield against the thunderbolts? If that's right, then we only have a little over 10 seconds left to hide before the sky fires it all back at full charge."
She then turned to Gabriel who she expects to have followed her way. "Gabriel, I will leave the marines to you. I need to treat both of them. Hurry! They already docked the port. One of them is as strong as you are. Maybe even stronger. Careful."
, she said before giving the Lunarian heartthrob a kiss on his forehead, like what an older sister would to his younger cub.
"Assist me. We need to take them inside."
, she ordered the Mechas.
Sephiroth vs Orianna
Orianna summoned orbs of lightning and blitzed Sephiroth. Without any form of calculation, she headed her way to a definite sleeping volcano. It's magma just being held. Compressed and composed. But it appears that her last words would do something to make the Lunarian get fired up. And she launched forward her fists with her ice orbs to freeze the Lunarian's source of firepower, the other would clash against them, his flame power igniting by the miles, overpowering the woman of cyborg enhancement.
There was no struggle on the Lunarian's part. At least in terms of physicality. But emotionally, there was enough. Sephiroth, after the clash grabbed her by the neck, almost choking her. But the grip was just enough for her to still breathe. Then she was pinned onto the ground. The other would speak his heart out.
I'm no hero - nor do I intend to be.
I simply intend to carve out a cave for me and my people to live in peacefully. A place where no one can reach us.
No one will stop me.
The next turn of events would shock the woman in her entirety as the man above her, staring her down to her very core, subconsciously unloosed his willpower. Ever daring and bold. Hateful, sorrowful, vengeful. But deep inside it, longing for his home. She felt it. She felt everything this man desires. And she might not admit it even on her deathbed. But a part of her desires what this man desires.
When her body was touched by his Haki of the Supreme King, her eyes were wet. Tears fell down her ears. Remembering their tragic past. Longing for someone to save them once more. It was at this moment, she knew, she could not beat this man's willpower. Not even better him with her tricks. For a long, he has already decided to take everything with his own hands. At last, she turned to Sephiroth's eyes. Her emotion flowing. "Fine. You can use this place as your stronghold. But."
There's a condition. Of course, there is. "Let us sail with you."
An offer he couldn't refuse.
