Ox was inside the room carrying his axe with him. He glares at the man who was taking the crystal. “So, the council sent him to get rid of me, huh.” said Tristan. He put away the crystal in his pocket. “I’ve no other choice then.” Fire unleashes in his hands. “Come at me, you beast.”
Ox wasn’t intimidated by this man. To him saying the word “beast” to him. He would take that as a complement before his opponent bleeds and dies. He grips on his axe and starts to swing at him. Tristan had a smile on his face. He had tendency to know a person strengths and weakness. He looks at Ox, he sees that his magic is great and offensive powers are at high standards.
However, Ox was sorely focusing on getting rid of the opponent unware his surroundings making his defenses open for an attack. And that’s what Tristan did, he dodges his attack and comes behind him and hit him with a fireball to the back. It bruised him, but that didn’t stop him from destroying him. He swirls his axe around causing a whirlwind. Tristan use his flames and two the elements clash with each other.
Lucy could feel the sudden impact from that attack. However, she can’t just run away. This man was stealing the crystal and she needs to stop them. She grabs a gate key.
“Open, Gate of the Crab, Cancer!!!”</I> she yells.
A spirit that looks like human appears before her. Cancer had shard claws on his back and Crab arms as arms. “Go!! Stop that Thief!!” she ordered. He obeyed and went after Tristan. Lucy grabs her whip and joins the battle.
Meanwhile up surface, security was getting everyone to evacuate. Gajeel and Levey were searching for Lucy.
“Have you found her?” Levy asks Gajeel. “No I can’t find her scent anywhere. There just too many people.” He replies. Levy was getting awfully worried for her.
Just then another explosion erupts causing the ground to shake. Citizens scream and ran from the port. A security guard came behind them and he grabs their shoulder. “I’m sorry. But, I need you to evacuate.” He said to them.
“Our friend is inside somewhere. We’re not leaving without her.” Levy responded. “It’s too dangerous for you to go.” He said to her. “Even so, we’re going to help her.” Just then the guard grabs her right arm. Gajeel tries to fight; but, he was hit with a stun gun by another security officer.
“Gajeel!!” She yells. The guard tires to restrain her. But that’s when the bookworm decides to make a move.
“Solid Script: Gravity!!”</I> The force of the gravity pushes both security guards to the ground. Gajeel went to check on her. “Are you okay?” he asks. “No need to concern yourself.” She responds. “What matter is to find our friend.”
“Gajeel suddenly pick up a familiar scent. “What’s wrong?” said Levy. He points to that door that was open. “You think Lucy went in there.” She asks.
“There’s only one way to find out.” Gajeel and Levy in there to find the celestial mage.
Natsu was in the real room just walking around when he feel something tingling in his heart. “What do I get the feeling something bad is going to happen?” He thought. He turns and runs to find the bad aura he is feeling.
Meanwhile, Ox was taking to Tristan. He throws his axe like a boomerang at him. Tristan moves his body backwards and avoids being sliced the axe went and destroyed four pillars that were supporting the room. Tristan got back up and moves to the side before he was cut by Cancer’s blades. Lucy came from behind and uses her whip. He quickly moves out of the away and grabs her whip and throws her back in the ground.
She maintains her balance as she landed on her feet. “You quite the interesting one.” He said to her. “Your magic seems so different. Just who are…”
Before he could even utter a sentence, Ox comes and in and tries to crush him with his fist. He move back to avoid being hit. He was getting irritated of this. He needs to deliver this to his master immediately. He made a fire symbol come out of his fingers.
“I call upon Argar, the Fire beast.”</I> He yells.
As the symbol began to glow, hand crept inside the mark. Then another hand emerged then head and finally the entire body. It had animal eyes and razor sharp teeth. It made a loud battle cry and attacks Ox. Ox grabs it arms and tried to rip it apart with his strength.
Tristan decides to make a break for it. Lucy tries to stop him. But, fire arm appear out of nowhere and grabs and pushes her to the ground. “It shame to see a woman like die in here. But, duty calls. Next time, doesn’t meddle into things that you don’t belong. That’s’ if there is a next time for you.” He snaps his fingers and Argar started to glow brightly.
Ox wonders if his was another one of his tricks. However, he couldn’t act because Argar exploded causing the room to shake.
Lucy couldn’t see anything with this thick smoke she covers her mouth to prevent her from inhale the smoke. Then, she felt something wet on her knees. She touches it.
“Water.” She said. She looks up and water was staring to coming in the room.
“This bad I didn’t realize I was underneath the water.” She said. “I have to get out.” She got up to her feet and headed for the exit. She heard a moan coming from the room.
As the smoke clears, she saw Ox and his left leg was trap within the rubble. “Help me!” he said. She looks at him. He was desperate to get out. And the water levels were rising quickly. She quickly acted once more.
“Cancer, help him.” she said. And he did just so by cutting the rocks in small pieces. Ox was finally free. “Thank you, Cancer.” She said. Cancer went back into the spirit world.
Ox acted quickly as he grabs the blond and ran out of here as the room began to collapse on itself. They ran out to Level 3. But as they did, water began rushing through the door. OX and Lucy ran as they could. But, the kept moving faster and faster until it catches up to them and swallows them up.
Gajeel and Levy went inside further and further down the hallway. Gajeel could hear something rushing down the hallway. It was coming really fast.
“Gajeel, what’s wrong?” Levy asks. Gajeel quickly grabs her and put her over his shoulder. And darts out of the hallway.
“Gajeel, what are you…?”
“I’m sorry.” He interrupts her. “But, we need to leave now.” Gajeel spouted out giant wings out of his back and, with Levy, he flew all the way to the outside. Levy saw the oncoming water rushing outside. But, Lucy was nowhere in sight.
“Lucy!!” she yells.
Meanwhile, Tristan was further away from the port. He was about to deliver the crystal to his master when flames came at him. He moves out of the away from them.
“It’s look like we meet again, Salamander.” He said . As he senses Natsu behind him. Natsu had a disgust look on his face. He knew that bad aura had to be Tristan.
