It was time for Fox's next match. While practicing spells in the training gym, he saw that Emma Agne lady walking through the halls, repeatedly looking around with an angry look on her face. Fox wanted to see what was up, so he decided to sneak behind her.
Emma kept walking at a steady pace, Fox following right behind. Emma went into the woman's restroom and started talking to someone. Fox, still questioning the situation, cast a spell to amplify the sound of Emma's voice.
"We have a situation," Emma started, "The Contestant, Alexandria, she has another relic. No doubt you've seen it in action on the channel broadcasting the tournament."
Emma sighed and continued, "Her blade can unleash devastating blasts. She's attempting to kill people who did nothing wrong. She could be a threat to the mission."
Fox heard another voice, but it was a guy! "Agne, I know your sense of justice is strong, but nothing is preventing her from killing others. The rules are as loose as a laceless shoe."
"But, sir!" Emma retaliated.
"No buts. Just finish the mission." After a few seconds, everything was silent, until Emma started walking to the door.
"Oh, crap! Gotta get outta here..." Fox teleports back to the training gym and reflects on what he had learned. Another relic? A mission? Before Fox could ask himself any more questions, it was his turn to go and fight.
said Hank. Fox had been preparing much more heavy duty spells. Fox was a master of the elements and was very excited to test himself this time, but he thought to himself, What could this 'Gemini' person possibly do?
The two fighters reached the center of the arena. In front of Fox was a blonde American. He seemed to only have nunchucks as a primary offensive option, but there was a strange device on his arm.
Hank projected. "A temple, huh? Looks like I could have the upper hand," Gemini said.
"How so?" Fox asked him, as it seemed Fox had the advantage.
"That will be a surprise..."
The Temple started forming around the fighters, and it seemed Gemini was instantly gone! Fox scanned the area and saw him peeking from behind a pillar. He was pointing behind Fox, and Fox turned around, only to be greeted by a solid hit to the face.
"Hold on... you were over there!" Fox exclaimed.
"Was I now? Take another look."
Fox looked back to where Gemini was and saw he was still there. Suddenly, Fox was surrounded by Geminis. "What the?" Fox questioned.
"If you haven't figured it out yet, I can repeatedly make clones of myself. I am very clever, aren't I?" Gemini boasted. 'Good luck, beating me. This fight's already over."
Fox had the perfect spell for this moment. "Meteor Crash!" Fox was engulfed in flames and launched upwards. All the Geminis stared at him as he slammed back down, destroying all of them.
"You're the magic guy! Oh, this just got much more fun!" Gemini shouted. Fox rushed right at Gemini, but Gemini grabbed Fox and flipped him back into the ground, making the whole floor collapse causing the fighters to fall.
"Icicle Glide!" With a wave of Fox's hand, he created an ice slide he could use to get down safely. Gliding down, he saw Gemini riding an obelisk made of his clones.
"Mess him up, clones!" Gemini ordered. Suddenly, clones appeared behind Fox on the slide. Fox made the slide flatter, allowing him to stand and cast spells. "Come at me!" Fox yelled.
Fox started to look around to see what he could use to easily take the clones out. "Earthen Control!" Two boulders made of the broken floor formed, "And smash!" The boulders crushed the clones and the portion of the slide they were on.
Both competitors had just reached the floor, a dark, dank hidden room soaked in water. Gemini already had tons of clones prepared and ordered them, "Trap him in a clone prison!"
Fox had become trapped in a dome of mimics. "Exploding Charge!" Fox conjured a fireball that exploded, causing all the clones to get blasted into oblivion.
Fox started to plan. How is he spawning those clones?
The televisions in the gyms played the fight. Xandria watched the fight and focused on one person. That Gemini guy looks fierce, huh, Xandria? Dracula Siphon asked, telepathically.
That's not who I'm focusing on. That Spellcaster, Fox, looks strong. Xandria replied.
He could be a roadblock too. You should study that one, chances are he could be on your level. Dracula Siphon said.
Fox thought back to the device on Gemini's arm, That device must be how he does it! How can I get to it though... Fox looked at the ground, covered in water. I'll electrocute the floor! I need an opening.
"Hey, Gemini!" Fox shouted.
"What is it?" Gemini replied.
"Now you see me! Now..." Fox transformed into a shadow, "You don't!"
Gemini was worried. Where could he have gone? Panicking, he surrounded himself in clones.
Out of nowhere, Fox reappeared next to Gemini, electrocuted the floor, and launched himself upwards off Gemini. Gemini got shocked and his cloning device short-circuited, and all clones were destroyed, as well as the device itself.
The electricity cleared, and Fox landed back down.
"Uh, oh," Gemini said.
"You better believe it," Fox responded.
Conjuring his giant gauntlets, Fox proceeded to pound Gemini's face in. Three good punches to the face and Gemini was down.
Fox thrust his fist towards the sky in triumph. "Who's next?" He shouted bravely.
Next time, Ricardo fights a hunter named Jax the Champion. Who will win? Found out next chapter...
