"I offered to help." Akane replied to Nate.


The Showdown

Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
Caelum arrived at the scheduled meeting place a bit earlier than the others and began looking for Nate who stated he'd be at the palace gates. He checked his watch before glancing around.


NateWb
Nathaniel Edan
It was pitch black but soon he materialized from the shadows, strolling across the gravel, a joint, or a cigarette who knew, dangled from his lips. His hands were shoved into pockets and he grinned at the group, "howdy," he said.
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
"Howdy?" he replied in a questioning tone. "Are you.... high...?"


NateWb
Nathaniel Edan
He clicked his fingers at Caelum, "always," he said, "I was actually sober for like the past three days. It was terrible. Anyways, the parentals are aware of what's happening, next thing to do is confront her, I suppose."
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
"I suppose it is." He glanced at his watch again anxiously. "Where are the rest? Akane and Erraline aren't usually late. Seojun does his own thing, so I don't know nor care where he is."


NateWb
Nathaniel Edan
"How would I know? I told you to be here in an hour."
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
"We have to wait for them?"
NateWb
Nathaniel Edan
He shrugged, "doesn't bother me," he said, taking a drag, blowing it out through his nose, trying to direct it away from Caelum.
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
He rolled his eyes and took out his phone, just when Seojun decided to show up.
SE36
Seojun Edan
Seojun appeared in front of the Palace gates in a burst of flames. He took one glance around the place and raised an eyebrow. "Where's everyone else? I thought I would arrive last."
NateWb
Nathaniel Edan
"DOn't ask me," he said.
SE36
Seojun Edan
"Didn't ask you," Seojun said, jutting his thumb at Caelum. "Was asking him."
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
He shrugged, "I don't know. I'm starting to get worried. Let me text Erraline."
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"No need for that." Erraline said, walking up to the gates. "Sorry I'm late, I had to make sure that my significant other was okay before I left."
Akane Igarashi QB
Akane Igarashi
Akane was behind Erraline.
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
He put his phone away. "Mmph, finally. Did you at least check up on Grace before you came? I checked earlier after we went to the cafe, but she was still unconscious."
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"Yes. She was unconscious when I checked up on her."
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
He scowled, more infuriated than before. "Damn Victoria. I personally want to send her to hell," he seethed.


NateWb
Nathaniel Edan
"I don't think she'd be too unhappy there," he mused, "see, most people believe hell is all hot and boiling and since she's immune to it..." he trailed off with a shrug, "unless you believe hell's just ice. Then she'd be in trouble."
SE36
Seojun Edan
Seojun rolled his eyes at Nate and tsked. "How unsympathetic of you, cousin." He held up his palm and created two figures made of fire, facing each other. The figures bowed and then entwined hands, beginning in a simple waltz. The waltz slowly developed into a battle, one figure's light was dim and the other was bright. "Remind you of anything, Ky?"
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
"Yin and Yang..." he mumbled. "The dance of darkness and light. Wait, what are you...?"
SE36
Seojun Edan
He extinguished the dancing flames and patted Caelum's shoulder. "Metaphorically speaking," he said with a small smile.
Akane Igarashi QB
Akane Igarashi
Akane remained quiet.
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"So, are we ready to proceed... Nate?"


NateWb
Nathaniel Edan
He shrugged, "I was ready when I came, my parents are on their way. Now all we need to do is confront her."
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
He remained silent since Seojun spoke to him and simply waited for a signal to begin the confrontation.
SE36
Seojun Edan
He yawned and stretched, "Then what are we waiting for? As nice as this is, I didn't come to pose in front of the castle gates. I'm sure there are surveillance cameras somewhere, and if someone finds us they'll be a bit suspicious we're just standing here."
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"I'm ready to go in."
Akane Igarashi QB
Akane Igarashi
Akane shifted a little closer towards Seojun.
SE36
Seojun Edan
He glanced at Nate. "Well?" He also grabbed Akane's hand and intertwined his fingers with hers.


NateWb
Nathaniel Edan
He shrugged before turning to walk up the driveway, expecting them to follow.
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
Erraline picked up her pace and ended up becoming the second fastest-walker in the group.
Akane Igarashi QB
Akane Igarashi
Akane didn't mind that she was holding hands with Seojun, so she continued to stay by him.
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
Caelum lagged behind Seojun and Akane as he thought. He rarely spared them a glance, however, and was more focused on the floor.
SE36
Seojun Edan
Seojun followed Erraline, keeping his pace casual, yet still happened to be walking faster than Caelum. Still holding Akane's hand, he lightly swung it as they walked and smiled at her.
Akane Igarashi QB
Akane Igarashi
Akane tried to hide her blushing.
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
Erraline was the first to reach the gate.


NateWb
Nathaniel Edan
He pushed the doors open, "come on, it's the switch over so we have a free path straight to her room."
SE36
Seojun Edan
"Makes everything easier and less of a pain in the ass."
NateWb
Nathaniel Edan
His lips tugged, "exactly!"
SE36
Seojun Edan
"There's actually something we both agree on. I think this is a sign that Victoria might actually succeed. Quick, stop being reasonable!"
NateWb
Nathaniel Edan
He laughed despite himself, "come on, don't have much time."
SE36
Seojun Edan
He nodded, "I almost forget we're supposed to stop the Fire Kingdom from collapsing by defeating Victoria who also conveniently wants to take over the world. Must be the scenery. Very pretty. Very distracting." Seojun like added a more humorous spin to the situation, despite the fact that it was life and death here. And also the fate of the Fire Kingdom. But it comforted him in the fact that he could joke around about the end of the world. "Well, you heard him. The switch in shifts is going to end soon."
Akane Igarashi QB
Akane Igarashi
Akane stayed by Seojun's side.
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
Erraline was now behind everyone except Caelum.
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
"Hey Erraline," he whispered, speeding up a little so that he was walking besides her but still behind the rest of them.
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
Erraline turned to Caelum. "What's up, Caelum?" She asked quietly.
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
"What do we do after this? It would just be weird to pretend we don't know each other at all."
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"I don't know. I guess, we could come together when it comes to Victoria-related issues? I doubt this will be the actual end of Victoria, since she's probably got many affiliates."
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
"But who's actually loyal to Victoria? I mean, Seojun was but for some reason he's working with us, most likely for his own motives but he's still here. How many of Victoria's allies will still fight for her cause when she's gone?"
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"That's a good question."
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
"I wish we had more time. All of this just came so suddenly."
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"Yeah. But then again, she more or likely had this planned for potentially years."
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
"Couldn't she do this during the summer? During a more convenient time?"
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"I don't know."
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
"Sorry if I'm bothering you. I'm just... really overwhelmed right now."
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"It's okay. Everything is confusing right now. All we need to remember though is that Victoria is going to get taken down."
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
"I'm glad someone else understands."
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
She gave a half-hearted smile.
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
He shared a little smile of his own with Erraline before looking back up to the front, the smile gone. "So, where are we Nate?"
Akane Igarashi QB
Akane Igarashi
Akane was still by Seojun's side. She didn't say much, because she was focused on what was ahead.
NateWb
Nathaniel Edan
"We're in a castle," he replied moving through the halls lit only by fire. "We're going to her private quarters, where she's usually hiding out in."
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
"Wow, that was literally so helpful," he deadpanned. "Where in the castle are we currently?"
NateWb
Nathaniel Edan
"We're currently heading to the basement where I shoot you all in the head," he drawled, patting his left chest where there actually was a handgun hidden underneath his jacket, "we're in the hallways if that's anything, about to hit a staircase."
SE36
Seojun Edan
"Fun!" Seojun chimed. "I want a gun too. Not to shoot any of you in the head, I just like the satisfaction of shooting it. It's fun."
Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
He grimaced. "Seojun no one is going to give you a gun. We're not insane and you're trigger happy anyway."
Akane Igarashi QB
Akane Igarashi
Akane nudged Seojun twice, as if to say that she was watching him.
SE36
Seojun Edan
Seojun pouted at Akane in return and then laughed quietly. "Chill, I'm kidding," he whispered to her, squeezing her hand.
Akane Igarashi QB
Akane Igarashi
Akane gave a sneaky smile.
SE36
Seojun Edan
"You're so quiet," he murmured. "And short. Stop being quiet and short."
Akane Igarashi QB
Akane Igarashi
"You charming green-haired man." She remarked.
SE36
Seojun Edan
He chuckled, his brown eyes sparkling as he laughed. "Touché."
Akane Igarashi QB
Akane Igarashi
She smiled genuinely as she saw how happy he was.
SE36
Seojun Edan
"Hey Igarashi-san, when's your birthday?"
Akane Igarashi QB
Akane Igarashi
"April 23rd, Seojun."
SE36
Seojun Edan
"Well then, happy late birthday. I'd give you a present but we're in the middle of a life-death situation here and I don't exactly have time to go back to the Academy and come back."

Akane Igarashi
"Thank you. Let's just focus on the task at hand first."


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
Erraline just wanted to confront Victoria already.


NateWb
Nathaniel Edan
"Here we go," he muttered, reaching the section, pushing the doors open. "She should be in here somewhere..."


Caelum Hio 2
Jeong Yi Caelum
Caelum's blank face kept back the wave of emotions overwhelming him from being physically displayed as he stood, waiting for Nate to verify if she was there.


Victoria GIF
Victoria Edan
Victoria was sat on the Fire Kingdom's throne.


NateWb
Nathaniel Edan
He finally reached her and frowned, "aren't we getting a little bit ahead of ourselves?"


Victoria GIF
Victoria Edan
Victoria laughed. "This has been my vision for almost 20 years. Oh, I see you brought along the rest of the Scooby-Doo gang."


NateWb
Nathaniel Edan
"I want to think I'm Fred but I might be Shaggy. Seojun's the dog," he mused, "and you know you actually have to kill mum and dad to actually achieve it...right?"
SE36
Seojun Edan
Unamused by Nate's joke and uninterested in being the good guy anymore—for now, he let go of Akane's hand and stepped forward passed Nate and walked ahead to stand beside a guard. He whispered something to the guard, gestured to Akane and then pointed to Victoria before he dropped his hand and the guard nodded. "Well, can you... I don't know, hurry up? Fight her or something. This is going to take forever if you are going to sit down and have a family reunion. I didn't come here for that."
Victoria GIF
Victoria Edan
Victoria used her powers to create two huge fire hell hounds, whilst still sitting down on the throne.


NateWb
Nathaniel Edan
He sighed, "can't you just get down from there quietly? It's such a drag to fight," he said, rubbing his chin and glanced to the guards, frowning, "the king and queen are on their way along with the army. Give it up, Vic...you know you've lost. No one will accept you as queen. They'll give you mercy."


SE36
Seojun Edan
He cracked his neck and grinned, the anticipation of a fight fueling him with adrenaline. Something about violence just made him happy. Maybe it had to do something with all those murder fantasies...
Akane Igarashi QB
Akane Igarashi
Akane got her powers ready, in preparation.

Victoria Edan
"Their form of "mercy" will probably be forcing me to become a normal "princess" and have me married off to some idiot prince or duke from another Kingdom. I don't want that. Like I've said before, they've never liked me. So I have to fight until the end. Besides, you don't have to fight me. You can just go and walk away from all of this."

In the background, a hooded individual quietly snuck around the corner. They were able to destroy the hell hounds that Victoria had created.

"What the?"
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
Erraline stood in shock.

The hooded person came out from the dark, and faced Victoria. They reached out their arm, as if they were going to use their powers.
NateWb
Nathaniel Edan
He blinked as he saw them before leaping into action, using fireballs to distract them. Moving closer he said, "let her go, I'll kill you both if you don't."
Hooded-hacker-dark-malicious-figure-hood-lurking-69423550
???
The hooded person was not affected by the fireballs, meaning that they were of the Fire element. "I'm on your side." The person used a voice changer.

Victoria Edan
"I think I know who you are, hooded person." She smirked.
Akane Igarashi QB
Akane Igarashi
Akane was very desperate to join in the fight.


NateWb
Nathaniel Edan
"Jesus, it's Grace, isn't it?" He sighed, "I thought you were locked up? Whatever...come on Victoria, you're outnumbered and the knights aren't exactly under your jurisdiction either."
SE36
Seojun Edan
"He does have a point," Seojun commented, speaking up. "But the depends on how skilled the people defending him are. I mean, if we're going to be fair, no offense to Caelum or Erraline, your psyches aren't made for fighting. Which leaves Nate and Grace, and then the rest of these questionable guards." He smirked as he pulled the gun out of the holster from the guard beside him and pointed it at Victoria. "I could shoot you, end this and we could all leave. But that's not fun, is it?" Then he turned it on Erraline. "Or I could shoot one of you and see what happens."
Akane Igarashi QB
Akane Igarashi
Akane used her powers to disarm Seojun. "Shut up."
Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
Erraline, having had experience being shot, did not care. She watched what was happening in shock and helplessness - as the hooded person was doing her fighting for her.
