Chapter 3 - Mammon - Underworld

"Claws and wings? Are you trying to kill me?" I raise my eyebrows at him. It was possible to make those things, but... "It would take a week of my training to get claws, Raike. Wings? More around two. I'm not a legendary trainer in magic arts. Bernkastel is as close as you can get to that. You don't have two weeks, Raike. You have two days at most for training." I understood his concern for Ryuu's strength. Even if his punches didn't hurt me, I could still feel the strength of each blow. Not to mention, he would be able to pin down Raike with that body of his. No wonder he was called the rhyno... If he could, he'd stomp you to death.

"Honestly, I think learning magic just to put him on fire would be enough. It seems to me that he's more into physical fighting, so why would he know much magic? I'd say, keep your distance from the freak, and throw fireballs at his butt." I grinned, even though Raike's tone was serious. "No, if you're with Bern, you won't survive. You'll thrive. Did you see the games last year? That proves it."

I approach Raike calmly, but what I do next, is unexpected. I take his chin, and lower it slightly so his eyes look at mine. "I will not help you with any fights, if that's what you think. You may be a friend, but even I wouldn't go that far." I laugh a little, before leaning forward. We're inches away from eachother now. "If you want my help. My power... You'll need to make a contract."


Chapter 3 - Bernkastel Vermillia - Demon District

The poor little girl is shivering now inside Kerin's grip. What was she seeing? Obviously something bad. My eyes lower calmly to her face, but she can't make eye contact. Not even with Kerin. She stares at her lap like she has a dead body there. She swallows roughly, and begins rubbing around her right wrist.

"I-I only see seven other people in the arena with me... In front of a clock tower..." She squeaks out. There were sixteen of us right now... Eight there? That's only half! From the corner of my eye, I see Vergil push his lips together. "I-I see... Two people I've never seen before... Two adults... Shiro and Shizuka...And Ryuu." Her voice his hoarse; as if she can't breathe. Wait... That meant me, Fang, and Kerin were not there. Where were we, then?

She continues to rub at her wrist, almost as if she's trying to take something off. Her golden eyes are wide in fear. "R-ryuu..." What she means, hits me full force. I stand up, move around the table, and kneel beside Kerin's chair. I stroke her head soothingly, as she speaks.

"....I'm chained to Ryuu."
