(This is a good time to have Skylar try to prove her fighting prowess against a powerful enemy without the help of others. A good way to create tension in a story in my opinion is to stack the odds against the protagonists, A.K.A. blasting Kai out of commission for most of the fight.)

Skyra risked a quick glance toward the school to see if Shinryu was all right. All she could see was the hole in the wall of the school. She could see a pile of desks and chairs with his sword sticking out of it, but that was it. There was no sign of movement in the classroom. As much as she wanted to see if he was all right she couldn't. It was up to her to keep the Tsurekin Agent busy until Shinryu could get back into the fight.

The wyvren opened its mouth again and red light began to gather from its throat. Skyra reacted almost immediatly, running into the forest to use the trees as cover. The Agent let loose its blast at the last spot it saw Skyra before she disappeared from its sight. The impact of the explosion tore up the ground, trees were thrown into the air in all directions. The Wyvren then proceeded to trample the forest in an attempt to find its target.

Skyra got out of the forest while the Tsurekin Agent had its back turned. She used this as a chance to sneak up on the huge lumbering beast and attack it from behind. She got to running speed and charged at the creature. When its tail came close to the ground she jumped on it and used it as a boost to proppel her onto its back.

She used the metal claws on her hands and feet to clutch onto the Agent's back. The wyvren let out a roar of frustration as it tried to shake her off its back. It tried to reach her with its arms and tail, but Skyra had landed on the one spot it couldn't reach. She jerked her right claw loose from its back before turning on its lazer function. "Let's see how you like this!" she shouted before slashing away at its metal skin with her blue lazer claws.

The Agent screamed in pain and shook violently. Skylar held on though as she slashed at it again. She felt it's tail flash past her in another attempt to get her off it's back. Another failed attempt. She felt it start to move and slashed at it again. It's knees buckled, but she could tell it wasn't cause she had harmed it.

It's going to roll! She thought she took a few more good slashes before she let go just in time to keep from the giant Agent from rolling on top of her. She used the chance to run across it's stomach and make a few good slashes there before she had to take cover.

The Agent rolled around on the ground for a few moments before getting back onto its feet. It hissed angerly at Skyra as it prepared to attack again. She quickly glanced toward the school to see how the evacuation was going. The parking lot was about half-way empty, but it was still moving too slowly. Even with her Soul Fusion Skyra couldn't hold off this giant all on her own for much longer. She looked back toward the hole Shinryu made in the wall to see if he was up yet. She caught a little movement from the rubble, which was a good sign. Just a little longer, she needed to hold off the Tsurekin Agent just a little longer until Shinryu could get back into the fight.

The wyvren took a few steps toward Skyra when it suddenly did something peculiar. It looked straight up toward the sky and stood deathly still, as though it was listening intently to a sound only it could hear. A few moments later it suddenly whipped its head toward the school. It opened its mouth and red light began to shine from its throat once again.

"NO!" Skyra cried as she rushed toward the beast to try and stop it. Even as she ran she knew she wouldn't make it in time to stop its next attack. Time seemed to slow down as the Agent began to let loose its attack on the school.

The sound of discharging energy blasted from the direction of the parking lot just before five small bolts of blue light arked up and hit the wyvren under its chin. The force of the hit caused it to lifted its head up a bit just before it let loose its attack, which managed to just skim the edge of the roof and fly off harmlessly into the sky. Skyra looked toward the source of the blue energy attack and saw something walking between the mess of cars toward the battle. It looked like a girl clad from head to toe in a strange suit of armour. As she got closer Skyra realised the armour was actually pieces of Lavos' body. The Tsurekin's head, along with its four smaller heads, stuck out of the back of the suit like snakes. Their mouths were still glowing blue from the aftershock of the attack. It didn't take long for Skyra to put two and two together and figure out the girl was Katherine. The girl had somehow performed Soul Fusion with her Tsurekin.

Skyra was glad for the help though and she quickly continued to banter and tease the Agent trying to refocus it on her and not the school. They needed to get the school cleared before that would be allowed.

"Thanks!" She hollered as the other girl started to help.

**Brain dead, I'm really sorry. What is Lavos and Katherine's name?

(Sorry for the huge delay. I guess with the end of the semester and a 3D animation competition right after I got distracted. By the way, me and my partner won bronze medals for that competition. :D

I guess we could name Lavos and Katherine's Soul Fusion form Amymone. I believe Amymone is the name of the cave where the hydra that Heracles killed lived in. Isn't wikipedia a wonderful thing?)

Skyra continued to antagonize the creature, but no matter what she just couldn't get it to focus on her as intently as it had been before. As lifeless as its red eyes were it seemed intellegent enough to know which threat was bigger, which right now was Katherine. It opened its mouth once again to fire, but Lavos' heads immediatly straightened and fired their own attack again. Blue energy bolts shot out of their mouths and hit the giant in the face. Its attack was still charging, but the constant onslaught from Katherine forced its mouth to shut. Its mouth was still closed when it finally let loose its attack, and the resulting blast tore off its entire lower jaw and all its teeth. The Agent cried out in pain as it started backing away from the parking lot and back into the forest.

Katherine ran up to Skyra to join her in the battle. She seemed a little surprised when she got close enough to recognize Skylar's face. "Lavos was right, you do have a Tsurekin."

"We'll talk about it later," Skyra told her. "Right now we need to keep this thing away from the school while everyone evacuates."

Katherine looked up at the creature as it tried to regain its posture. "That thing's armour is thick, taking it down isn't going to be easy."

"Kai's sword is the only thing strong enough to take it down right now," Skyra explained. "As long as we keep it busy until he comes back we should be fine" She started looking around to see if there was anything they could use against the Agent. That's when she noticed the giant crater it left behind after digging itself out of the ground. "Let's try pushing it into the crater. That should buy us some time."

Skyra and Katherine tag teamed it keeping it from fighting around them to get back to the school. They helped each other as they battled the huge Tsurekin, both getting knocked around a bit but coming to each other's aid when that would happen.

"We almost got it!" Skyra said as they kept pushing the angry Tsurekin fighting back with a ferocity that Skyra wasn't sure that they were going to succeed in this plan. They had to though, just until Kai got there, he had to! He was the only one that would be able to defeat it and they had to defeat it, there was not an option what so ever.

"It's gaining! Katherine yelled back at her.

"We have to hold it at bay, we have to hold it back or everyone will die!" Skyra growled back assessing the situation and then going in for it's legs moving just as it swung at her.

(It may be a little wait until I can post. Now it seems I'm the one who's getting the writer's block. :lol: Pretty much all of the storybooks I've been participating in have slown down drastically since around the time you eloped, and I'm a little out of practice when it comes to thinking of a reply post on the spot. Sorry.)

They kept trying to force the Agent back toward the crater. If they could make it trip over the edge and into the hole it would buy them more than enough time. Unfortunately, the wyvren seemed to realise this. It did everything in its power not to take even a single voluntary step back. They managed to force him back a step every now and then, but most of the time the giant creature simply side stepped to avoid their onslaught.

In a move that caught both of them off guard the Agent suddenly jumped straight up. When it came back down the impact of its feet hitting the ground sent a violent tremour throughout the entire area that tripped the two girls up. Before they could regain their balance the wyvren spun its body and whipped both of them with its tail. They went flying, their bodies crashing into trees before they could tumble to a stop. Skyra and Katherine struggled to regain their breath after having the wind knocked out of their lungs so violently. When Skyra rolled onto her back she could see the Tsurekin Agent staring at them and the school behind it. She knew what was going to happen as soon as the inside of its jawless mouth began to glow red, and there was nothing she could do to stop it.

For an instant she caught the glint of metal from the hole in the side of the school before a silver figure shot out. It happened so fast that she could barely follow it with her eyes. The figure crashed into the side of the Agent with such force that caused the metal titan to become airborne for a split second, before crashing into the giant crater in the forest. It let out a pain filled roar as the sound of its metal body screeching against itself filled the air. The impact of its fall caused every tree in the forest to rustle. And there, floating in the air where the wyvren had once been standing, was Shinryu.

He's back in the fight, Skyra thought with a smile.

Skyra slowly stood up rolling her neck and then shaking the debris off herself.

It's about time. She smiled at Shinryu. Katherine stood up and looked at Shinryu weary. He is with us, trust me you can trust him. She smiled at the girl.

***Is the agent dead?***

Skyra froze and got ready to fight again as she heard metal scrapping in the crater. The creature roared back up out of the hole with a noise that nearly knocked Skyra off balance. She crouched low watching it spring up into the air fire flashing in it's eyes.

Whats the plan? Katherine asked watching the creature as it hovered for a second sizing them up.

Skyra knew right away what the plan was the moment Shinryu's sword lit up with fire. "We keep it still while Shinryu delivers the final strike," she said before making her way toward the Agent. The impact did more damage to the Agent than Skyra had thought. It still had the strength to get back on its feet, but it seemed to waver a bit as it lifted one foot onto the rim of the crater as it tried to step out. If they could keep it in the crater when Shinryu made his move they could minimize the resulting damage from debris. She knew how strong Shinryu's attack would be, she had seen it before. They needed to make sure that the wyvren was well away from the parking lot so no stray pieces of its body would fly off and hit someone's car.

She immediately went for the foot it placed on the crater rim and slashed ferociously at it with her lazer claws. Her incessant attacks managed to slice off a large plate of its armour, revealing the gears and ligaments inside. Without wasting any time she went to work on destroying anything she could reach. The Agent let out another roar as the inner workings were slashed to pieces and its foot went limp. Skyra managed to leap back just as the beast's footing slipped and it went down on one knee. A moment later a bombardment of Katherine's energy bolts slammed into its chest, knocking it back into the pit.

Skyra looked up and shouted, "You're all clear, Shinryu!"

Shinryu nodded as he got into position above the crater. He lifted his flaming sword over his head, let out a battle cry, and plummeted toward the enemy. The impact caused the ground to shake, and the wyvren let out one last shriek of agony as fire and bits of metal shot up from the pit like a geyser. Skyra had to shield her eyes with her hand to protect them from the heat and brightness of the flames. When everything went quiet Skyra looked down and saw Shinryu standing on the Agent's torn open chest. The beast's eyes which had once help a lifeless crimson glow were now pitch black.

Skyra sighed when she saw it was dead. She shook herself and looked over at Katherine.

You ok? She asked as the girl looked down at the agent.

W-what exactly was that? Katherine asked. Cause it's not one of us.

Actually it is, just a god one of us. Skyra replied with a small smile. You just helped kill the first agent.

Agent? Katherine asked frowning.

They are Tsurekin that are trying to destroy the earth. Shinryu said standing at the edge of the pit. That is why so many of us have been brought together here. We are here to defeat them so this world can continue on.

"Look!" Someone yelled from near the school. Skyra looked over and saw a crowd of reporters and police.

We better leave. Skyra replied. I don't think they are going to care that we just saved them.

(Sorry for the wait, got caught up in some other things.)

"We'll meet back up at the mansion," Shinryu said before grabbing Katherine's hand. Skyra nodded and ran off while Shinryu flew off with their new friend.

Skyra made her way through the forest to lose anyone that might be chasing her before coming out the other side and sneaking around the back roads. She could hear the distance whir of a helicopter and could only assume it was a police chopper. She knew Shinryu could fly faster than any helicopter, but it still made her worry.

She made her way toward the mansion, careful to avoid any major streets. She came around the back from the forest behind the premises to help mask her approach. She jumped over the back wall and landed in the spacious backyard. The jump would have been impossible for any normal person, but thankfully that wasn't the case for Skyra. She could already see Kai and Katherine standing at the back doors, they had already changed back to normal. As Skyra approached them she shifted back to normal as well. The metal pieces of armour around her body disconnected and floated off before coming back together beside her. When Tala was in her normal form she got into step beside her master.

"Were you followed?" Kai asked as Skylar and Tala approached.
