Schrecken showed up early, ready to go. He had decided to leave Zombie Joe back at the dorm, as he doubted that even a very strong wrestler zombie would be able to fight very well against a tree. He had plenty of techniques he could use that did not involve zombies, both from Necromancy and Magical Linguistics. Of course, he would probably have a lot more abilities if he actually bothered to pass his classes all the time instead of getting bored or distracted and going off to do something else, but it was still clear that he had grown stronger since the last time he fought Apple.
Apple, however, was nowhere to be found. “Hey!” Schrecken called out, looking wildly around at the audience. “Hey! Hey! Apple! Where are you, Apple? I think we are going to have to have the big fight soon! I want to talk to you before we have the big fight! I want to tell you about Batman! There is a cool plant lady who fights Batman and she looks like you grown up! Hoo hoo hoo! Hello?
