As the beast spoke it's injured tail began to stitch it self together. Kota could not take his eyes off of the demon it's claws and tail swinging back and forth.
(I have to take it out here if it eats anyone else it's power will be to great to kill and it will devour us all.)
"No in fact I know that my hatchet doesn't have to power to kill you I knew that as soon as I found out you were a demon. But the only way to kill a dark soul like yours is to drive the darkness completely from this plane."
Kota took the mage stone from his gauntlet and inserted the dark stone that Atlas had charged earlier.
Kota gulped as he engaged the trigger inside of his gauntlet and spoke these words. "Flamma foras voco salvatoris sanctus sordes tibi putei reptantem eicaint vos." <I summon forth the holy flame of the saviour to banish you to the pit of filth you crawled from.>
Kota's gauntlet shot out black lightening as the gears spun faster than Kota had ever seen them. Kota used his other arm to steady his gauntlet and take aim. As Kota's aim locked on at the beast's head the beast crashed into the labyrinth trying to reach him. At that moment the black lightening merged into Kota's palm and cast a spell circle and from the center of the circle a golden sword twice as long as Kota slowly emerged from the portal once the hilt had made it through the circle it ignited into a brilliant white flame. Kota reached out and grabbed the sword it was lighter than a pen in his hand. At sight of the new weapon Kota now brandished the beast stopped dead in it's tracks and began to flee. The crowd was silent as Kota dashed over the stone walls of the labyrinth until he reached the beast. He lept from the wall and cut into the beast like a eagle descending onto its prey. The flame from the sword spread like a mist over the entire form of the beast and as it did black blood darker than ink sprayed over Kota as he removed the golden sword.
"Go to hell" Kota spoke as he walked away the screams of the beast roared through the stadium as it erupted into blinding white flames once it did the golden sword in his hand began to atomize and blow away in the breeze. Once the final grain of the sword was out of sight the remaining husk of the beast exploded into ash.
The crowd collectively gasped and applauded as Kota walked back to Victor. Who was standing there slack jawed beside Azelf who steadily sat next to the wall of the battlefield scribbling in his journal.
Kota walked over and reached down snatching the book from Azelf's hands. Inside was a sketch of Kota wielding the golden sword raised high over his head half of his body was covered in black. Kota looked at his arm and legs realizing how much of the demon's blood was covering his clothes. Kota let out a hearty laugh and handed the book back to Azelf them he walked away still giggling.
As Kota walked off the field with Victor and Azelf following him the winged demonic announcer Eve spoke up. "Well everyone give it up for the challenger Team Kota, who just fought a man down with no injuries and an overwhelming victory over the manticore gang taking down a full powered Envy demon with single blow from an unnamed sword." All around the stadium the crowd erupted into a round of applause. "With five rounds left in the bloodbath I can personally say I can see this team making it out of this bloodbath alive. But who knows how this battle will end."
Later inside the boy's room Kota screams as he tries to remove his power gauntlet. The energy that he harvested from Atlas was more than enough for six A-Class spells but even with one spell used the stone stayed blacker than the darkest shadow. Worse than that the spell had basically torn every muscle in Kota's right arm.
"Kota this is really bad you'll have to sit out of tomorrows fight." Victor said as he helped Kota remove the gauntlet. Kota winced at the pain but his mind was set on winning every match from and he couldn't ask these two men to fight for his soul.
"No I will fight even if it kills me I will breath my last breath destroying my enemy that is a good death one that any man would be proud to have."
Kota clenched his jaw as he forced his right hand to form a fist.
"You'll be no help fighting one handed the enemies they throw at us from here on out will be tougher bigger more deadly than today. Especially now that they have seen your true strength." Azelf added as he walked over and held his hand out to Kota.
"Grip my wrist with everything you have if you can hurt me i'll let you battle if not you'll just be in our way." Kota snatched Azefls wrist but with all his strength he could barely grip it with a final cry he released his hand and the muscles in his arm screamed in pain.
"Can I some of your blood then Azelf ? We can't afford to fight a man down tomorrow."
Kota asked the question not thinking about what he was really asking. Vampires were very protective of their blood it was a precious commodity. It could heal practically any human wound. But if the human died with the vampire's blood in their system, there was a chance the human would be turned into a vampire and be sired to the vampire that gave them blood. That and the act itself was very sexual exchanging body fluids and such.
Azelf turned a rosy pink with blush it was so unlike his normal pale white skin Victor giggled slightly. Azelf turned and stared at Victor who in turn went stiff as a board then shied away with a whistle.
"Are you sure that's what you want Kota?" Azelf asked as he sat on the bed with Kota. Kota wasn't one hundred percent sure he wanted to be healed this way but it was better than Kota sitting out in the next fight and losing either of his comrades.
"Yes please just give me enough to fix me up though." Kota answered with a little uneasiness to his voice.
"Fine close your eyes and open your mouth then." Kota did as he was ordered. Azelf bit the inside of his lip and leaned in close taking Kota's face in both of his hands he kissed Kota long and deep. At first Kota was shocked then the blood began to mix with his saliva and he swallowed hard forcing the taste down. The feeling that came next starting like butterflies in his stomach and flowed out ward toward his extremities like a million little pin pricks flowing under his skin he could feel the muscles in his arm tighten and stretch then heal almost instantly. But there was a feeling that wasn't the blood, in Kota's pants he felt a stirring there he hadn't felt since the last time he lay with a woman. Azelf finally pulled away from Kota licking his lips. Kota stared up at him unsure of what to say so he focused on the fact he was able to use his arm.
"Holy crap that was amazing, Victor look my arms feeling better already!" Kota emphasized this by waving at Victor.
