Kali was clear of the fire from Yani's hands, and was ready to throw his blue lance of magic, when he was spooked by a portal opening directly in front of him. He turned sharply when he saw what appeared to be a boa constrictor with red wings, spitting fire. Kali screamed and veered off course sharply, throwing the lance haphazardly. Kali panicked and sped away from the snake, but every time he looked back to see if it were a good enough distance, it would gain on him. He weaved through the air erratically, his only plan of escape to keep weaving through the air. Once, Kali looked back to see how far back it might have been, but he lost his lead in the shock of watching the snake fly.

The snake bit the leg of his pants, and he screamed again, flying close to the ground, finding that there were very few obstacles he could put between himself and the flying snake. A tongue of fire flew past his face and Kali screamed, barrel rolling sharply to one side, almost hitting the stadium wall in his blind fear. He took to the air, fighting for every inch of space, a far more arduous task than he thought it should be.

(snakes don't fly!!! snakes don't fly!!!)

A second tongue of flame shot close past his face, singeing his hair, snatching the air from his nose. "What in Odin's name! Snake!!"

Yani saw when the portal opened, but he didn't see the creature the same time Kali did. Yani heard a scream, and knew that it could only be one beast: a snake. He knew Kali to have one irrational fear in the world, and that is of snakes. Yani banked tightly, spiraling around to stand on the ground some 50 feet in front of the guy. Still engulfed in flames, Yani looked upon his twin with horror as he weaved through the air, pursued by a snake with wings and flaming breath. Kali panicked, screaming with every tongue of fire coming from it. Yani felt for Kali at that moment, he knew this must be a special kind of hell for his twin.

His anger and his power rise at the same time, to towering heights. Yani's muscles trembled with it, and the skies darkened with red clouds that quickly rolled in. "You filthy human," Yani spat, each word a pronouncement of contempt. His fire all over his body flashed brighter with each word as well, and calling him human elicited a reactive red glow from the clouds. "You sicced a snake on my twin? I will burn you!" Twice the clouds flashed brightly, and the third time, meteors rained from the sky, the ground ten feet behind the guy exploded, and Yani reached into the guy's mind, filling every corner of his mind with the feeling of fire--that a fire was licking every square inch of his skin--while he walked ominously toward the man.

Yani kept an unblinking gaze on the man as he tried to torture him with the illusion of being burned alive, and he thrust his hands out to each side, creating a ring of fire around the man and himself, trapping them together. Yani threw several fireballs at him, trying to anticipate where he would dodge to, then released a continuous stream of fire in sweeping form. He threw several more fireballs at him, intent on keeping him off balance, if he could. Yani remained on the ground, despite having wings, and a good reason to use them, but he was pissed now. This was personal.

Nobody looses an animal on his twin.

Ivan continued to chase the blue kid, always right on his tail. He wouldn't give up until he'd wrapped himself around his neck. The blue kid was fast when it came to flying, but Ivan was fast too. They were flying all around the arena, and Ivan almost caught the blue kid a few times, but he fell short by just a few feet.

"You filthy human,"said the red kid to Rhesal. Rhesal looked up and saw dark red clouds covering the skies. The red kid was glowing brighter, and when he seemingly spat out the word 'human' the red clouds flashed more violently.

"You sicced a snake on my twin? I will burn you!" As far as Rhesal could tell, as the red kid spoke the red clouds starting flashing more brightly. They flashed two times in a row, and then on the third time meteors started raining down from the sky. Rhesal started to back up, but behind him the ground exploded.

Rhesal took a step forward towards the red kid, when suddenly his skin started to itch. Then the itch started to burn. Within a matter of moments he felt as though his entire body was covered in flames. Rhesal threw off his tunic, and kept patting at his chest, trying to put out the flames he couldn't see. He looked up and saw the red kid advancing on him.

The kid used his hands to create a ring of fire, encompassing the two of them. Then, the red kid threw several fire balls at Rhesal. The first two connected right on his chest, burning him and knocking him to the ground. Luckily, he was on the ground and missed the stream of fire that the kid shot out at Rhesal.

Rhesal was trying not to lose his mind to the fire. He pulled one of his knives and made a long incision down the length of his left arm. He could feel his blessing start to heal the cut already. Rhesal focused on the cut, and the healing that was working there. He got to his knees and threw the knife he had in his hand at the red kid's lower stomach.

With a great feat of will, and still focusing on the pain from the knife and the healing that was at work there, Rhesal got to his feet and ran to just about where the red kid was. Rhesal jumped in the air and threw a superman punch with his right hand. He might burn his hand from touching the kid, but he knew the pain he would deal would be worth it.

Kali weaved through the air in complete panic, the snake getting closer every time he looked back. The snake shot a thin line of fire at Kali every few seconds, most only getting close, others singeing his hair. Kali couldn't think of a solution, for he didn't have very much offensive magic as he had defensive magic.

The best defense is a good offense, Riku said in the back of his mind...

On a desperate idea, Kali spun around after a long while of weaving through the air, and he threw his whole mind into creating a crystal ball, the same that would protect him from an incoming attack, around the snake. The crystal grew around the snake with surprising quickness, encapsulating it in seconds. The snake, devoid of the air that lifts its wings, fell to the ground inside the crystal ball, and Kali threw a magic lance at it, adding luck to its flight. The crystal ball shattered when it hit the ground, and the lance was there at its neck in the next moment, severing it.

Kali slowly stopped shaking in paralyzing fear and sought his twin. He saw that Yani had formed a fire ring around himself and the guy, and the guy was bleeding from his forearm, an injury that looked self-inflicted. The wound was healing quickly, and the man burst into a run and jump towards Yani. The punch landed exactly, and suddenly there was no fire on Yani's body. Yani himself had flown back to where the fire ring was, and the ring had disappeared. The red clouds in the sky dissipated quickly, and the meteors that were already falling hit the ground, but no more appeared from the sky, no others fell.

"Yani!"

Kali tucked his wings and descended from the sky at almost a free fall. At the last moment Kali opened his wings, and with a lot of effort, landed with a heavy thud without too much pain. He rushed to his twin and felt for a pulse and found one. Kali jumped up and threw several magic lances at the man, hoping for all the world he would be able to pin him to the wall with a few of them. Kali needed to attend to his twin, and he would stop at nothing to do so.

The last thing he remembered is the man he and his twin was fighting was leaping at him, one arm cocked back to deliver the most vicious blow, then a flash of white, the sound of thunder, his whole face exploding into a web of pain, then nothing. No sound reached his ears, no light crossed his eyes. He floated in a listless limbo, unaware, completely removed from the fight. His whole body tingled with numbness; he felt cold on his back; the air smelled of burning dirt.

"Yani!"

His name echoed infinitely, as if it came from everywhere and nowhere, around him and within him. He knew he should recognize the voice, but he was not sure if he could trust the memory. They were all fuzzy, jumbled together, moving too quickly to pin down.

"Come on, Yani, please!"

He felt a cool spot on his jaw, and it spread across his face, slow and strong. It tingled with how deep it penetrated, and the bone itself felt hot under cold skin.

"Don't die on me!"

He still couldn't recall the name of the kid that was helping him, and the memory was getting harder to reach, further away...

"Come back, Yani, come back!"

The voice was fading further away, the heat of his bones in his jaw and head subsided, the cool on his skin abated later. He couldn't hear the boy's voice for a long time, and he started to worry that he actually died. That couldn't be true, Yani thought, I couldn't have died. I can still draw breath, feel my heart beat.

Beyond knowing how to live, he couldn't think of anything else that tied him to the other kid's voice, or where he was. He only faintly remembered who he was. He knew his name, his power, and his familiar.

He began to feel cool dots on his face. He wondered if it had started raining, wherever his body lay.

"Yani? Yani?!"

He wished he knew the poor kid, could tell him that he would be alright. He wished he believed that himself, that his health was secure.

Rhesal stood over the red kid, sure that he had knocked him unconscious. After he had hit him the clouds had parted and no more meteors had fallen from the sky. The ring of fire and the column of fire had dissipated, and Rhesal no longer felt as though he were on fire. Now all I have to do is join Ivan in bringing down the blue kid and we can call this a win and go home.

He looked up to the sky in time to see the blue kid sever Ivan's neck. Rhesal watched in horror as his faithful companion fell to the dirt, where it hit the ground and laid there motionless.

"Oh you are going to PAY for that!" Rhesal roared at the blue kid.

The blue kid did a free fall from the sky, and managed to land on his feet a few meters from where Rhesal and the red kid were. The blue kid started to advance, and he threw those energy javelins that Rhesal hated so much. Rhesal managed to dodge most of them, but one pined him in the shoulder, and it threw him all the way back to the wall of the arena, where it stuck him into the side of the wall.

Luckily the blue kid was too concerned with the red kid to finish Rhesal off, so Rhesal had plenty of time to get himself off the javelin and back on the ground. He wouldn't be able to use his left arm, but he figured he'd been in worse binds.

Rhesal reached for his last two knives with his right hand, and he started to run towards the blue kid. When he got close, he threw the knives at the kid's throat. He knew that while the blue kid took care of the knives that Rhesal would be within striking distance, so he readied himself and when he was near enough he threw his right knee into the blue kid's face.
