It’d only been five minutes since the start of the operation, yet it felt like hours. The worst part was the loud bangs of gunfire in the distance rather than silent plasma going pew pew. There was only one reason why the soldiers had to revert to good old lead bullets. Time was ticking, and there wasn’t much sand left.
Blaze propelled himself through the air with fire from his feet like a rocket in order to keep up with Cecilia. At one point, he suddenly stopped and tumbled through the ground; groaning and taking heavy breaths while he clutched his head and crotch. Such strange and sudden behavior meant only one thing. At the speed Cecilia ran, she skidded across the ground a bit before she could stop and go help Blaze.
“You okay?” She dragged him a few meters back the way they came and dropped him on the ground.
No longer clutching his head or crotch, but still breathing heavily; he raised his finger and said, “That...So that’s what Lust's pheromones feel like...”
Heavy footsteps shook the ground, tiny rocks bounced, low guttural growls grew louder and louder, and the environment got hotter and hotter by the second.
“She’s the Sin of Lust, what else did you expect it to do?” Cecilia drew a line with her foot where she thinks is the extent of Lust’s pheromones for Blaze. “So you’re going to deal with these guys, right?” She looked up at the thoughtful demon and balrogs that came to greet them.
Blaze picked himself up, still calming down from the massive sex drive that overcame him instantly, “Wouldn’t it be faster for you to just kill them now, and I head back to help Ren and others?” He stared at these creatures whose heads touched the skies; three stories tall minimum. One balrog had had a mace in hand, while the other had a hammer. The demon this time, was an ugly amalgamation of an anglerfish and some sort of reptile; a salamander perhaps. If there was one thing these three creatures had in common, is that they were in constant immolation.
“Time’s ticking, every second counts” Cecilia stepped forward, the demon and balrogs stood aside, allowing her to proceed unobstructed.
“I know what she’s thinking,’” Cecilia accepted the invitation.
“I’ve never faced a balrog and demon before! Any advice!?”
“Punch them!” She clapped her hands together, drawing out the full potential of her Ki powers, a burst of wind pulsed from where she stood and pushed away any light objects around her.
“I meant advice for me!” Blazed shouted before she could get away.
“Punch them really hard!” Just like that, Cecilia was gone, splitting the ashes on the ground apart from her speed alone.
The balrogs and demons converged on Blaze, drooling fire from their mouths at the small snack before them.
“I guess now is as good a time as any.” Fire ignited in a circle around Blaze and combusted all over his body. Fiery wings sprouted from his back and he floated into the air and above the monsters. A scythe of fire burst in Blaze’s hands and with a haughty snort, his flames changed from orange to blue. “Don’t disappoint me now.”
