Seraph continued to watch as more rocks fell to the ground, the room around them cracking "What's taking her so long!" he wondered, the more seconds that ticked by the more they would either be crushed or burned to death.
"I'm sorry Seraph but it's time we go, we stay any longer and we're dead" Fear said
He sighed "your right.....Alright Colta lets-" He stopped as he looked down, not seeing him "Colta?" He said looking seeing him run to find Phonorius "COLTA GET BACK HERE!!!" He said running after him "Fear! Keep the barrier up!"
"I will! Just get the child!" She said
He then lunged and grabbed Colta by his tail, pulling him into the safety of the barrier "Have you lost your mind!? You could've been killed!" He said
"But momma?" He said looking to him
He had growled but sighed as he took in a deep breath "Alright, Let's find Phonorius, but PLEASE Stay within the safety of this barrier okay?"
"Okay, Follow" He said
Seraph did so, following colta down into the volcano "He sure knows his way around" He thought
"This is his home Seraph, would you expect anything less of one who knows the ways around the place he was raised and born in?" Fear said
"Good point" he said following Colta down till he stopped, seeing Zirra and Phonorius at the bottom of where Colta lead him to "There they are" He said gently grabbing colta's tail "Now colta, go to Phonorius and tell her we have to go before the volcano erupts or very bad things will happen ok? We have to get to safety"
"Okay" He said turning, Smiling as he saw his mother, the little pitter patter of feet running across the rocks as he ran up to Phonorius, Seraph slipping into his shadow form, as to not be seen.
"Momma! Mam! Mama, peas can I have some fuut?" Colta asked
Seraph putting his paw over his face "You have got to be kidding me..." he said as Fear chuckled "He's a child Seraph, they want whatever comes to their mind and if he's hungry? he's hungry."
"Mama? I'm...I'm not...Your mother?" Phonorius said, confused
Seraph's eyes went wide, hearing what Phonorius said "Did....did you hear that?" He said shocked "She doesn't know......She doesn't even know Colta is her son!"
Fear growled "That means the hermit was in control the entire time, that was all part of his plan, The child, Mullison, the volcano, this whole thing was a trap for Zirra, he just needed time for everything to be set in motion" She said
Soon rumbling and cracking was heard as he saw the ground beneath him start to crack and break as he took flight "The eruption is spreading!"
"Oh! Oh Dear! What's going on?! Watch out little one! Hurry, go, go!" Phonorius said pushing colta to move "Let's get-"
"Finally! We can get out of here!" Seraph said but stopped seeing Phonorius stopped in her tracks, looking at Zirra, Zirra looking right back at her "What's wrong? Why isn't she going?" He said but remembered how phonorius had watched zirra kill mesphito and knew those memories were haunting her at this very moment "Come on Phonorius Move!" He thought
Then the floor had cracked open, Phonorius foot slipping through as crystal started to encase it "AAH!" She yelled as rocks gave way from above, smashing the floor below, Phonorius grabbing onto the rock as the crystal encased more of her
Colta gasping as then the rock he was on lifted as he grasped onto it
Seraph then looked to Zirra who was not doing anything "Zirra...." he said watching "Please you can't let this happen! I know what happened was rough but please! This is your mother we're talking about, the one who raised you! Save her!" He thought as he closed his eyes "ZIRRA!" He said then heard claws scraping against rock as both Colta and Phonorius struggled to stay on the rocks
"EEH! AH! MAM! M-MAMA!" Colta yelled Struggling to keep himself on the rock as it tilted, Phonorius gasping as Zirra's tail came up to her "Grab on." Zirra said
"Oh Thank goodness" Seraph said relieved to see Zirra taking action as he moved his claws, pain still shooting through but not as bad "Thank you for the heals Fear" He said
"Z-Zirra! Th-That baby! He's going to fall! P-Please! Catch him! Please save him! Please!" Phonorius pleaded to Zirra
Zirra looked over to Colta who was flapping his wings, strugging with all his might, panting "MAMA! MAMA!" She looked between the two of who to save, an innocent child or the one who had raised her
Seraph watched as he got ready, the pain stinging him from protecting colta earlier from the rocks, but he could care less about that "Fear listen to me, whoever Zirra chooses, we go for the other" he said coming out of his shadow form
"Of course" She said then noticed the ground shaking below them as her eyes widened "Below! BLOCK!"
Seraph braced himself as a rock emerged from the ground, knocking him through the wall, into another area of the volcano as he slammed onto the floor "Aaahhhh...What in all of.....was that....the eruption?"
"Quite the opposite cursed dragon....ehehehehehehe.....Me...with the elemental power of earth at my command with this dragon, So many different abilities come in so handy hmhmhmhm" The hermit said, using an earth dragon as his puppet
"YOU!!!!!!!!!" Seraph hissed, spreading his wings, growling "Out of my way" he said, his eyes glowing "You've ruined our lives enough"
"Oh I don't think so, you see I can't have you interfering in my plans, I still have so much for Zirra but it's time I wrap up a loose end, you see Phonorius has served her purpose well but her usefulness has ended and if she is of no use to me anymore well...ehehehehehehe" He said chuckling
Seraph eyes widened as he flew at him "DON'T YOU DAAARRREE!!!!!!!!!!!" He said snarling
The hermit smiled as he looked to the left, using the elemental power of the dragon he had control of, flinging a boulder at him
"RAAAAHH!!!" Seraph roared, blasting it into bits
The hermit then used the dragon to hit the ground as rocks lifted up right in Seraph's path
"HNNGGGG GRAAAHHHH!!!" Seraph grunted fling his wings forward and propelling the rocks against the wall as he came up and grabbed his neck "Evil will never return! You have lost!"
"Have I now?" He chuckled, looking up and firing a blast as massive rocks fell from the ceiling, then digging his claws into Seraph's arms "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!!!!!" He yelled in pain, trying to pull away as the hermit held onto his arms tightly as then the rocks piled onto him
The hermit letting go as he laughed "You see Cursed dragon, everything goes as planned for what I have in store for Zirra. Phonorius like you are just obstacles then need to be eliminated" He said walking around Seraph
"F-Fear...H..Help..." He said struggling "I'm trying!" Fear said trying to heal the deep claw wounds in his arms "Curse that Hermit, He drove the claws deep on purpose so it would take more time to heal" She thought
"Once then there will be nothing in my way to complete what I have long since tried do with the Adalisk, of course....hmhmhmhm....it was only a matter of time"
He growled as then he heard a loud SNAP "GYYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH!!!!!" He heard Phonorius Yell and scream in pain
"NOOOO!!!!!PHONORIUS!!!!!!!!!!!!" He yelled, Struggling beneath the weight of the rocks as he reached out, his arms soaked in blood, holes in them from where the hermit had stabbed the claws into.
The Hermit laughed as he used the earth dragon to step on his wounded claws "AAAAAAAAAHHHHH!!!!" He yelled in pain "Yeeess....Hear her cries of pain, it's the last thing you'll ever hear, This day...Phonorius....will...DIE" He whispered
"NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" He roared as a Massive blast knocked all the rocks off him, Seraph's shadow power consuming him, his eyes glowing red as he grabbed the dragon, slamming him into the wall and striking his claws into the heart of the dragon "MURDERER!!!!!!!!!!!" He said as his wounds healed in an instant
"GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!" The hermit laughed "Nggghhhh...Such a slow learner you are cursed dragon.....I feel nothing! You are only hurting this dragon EHEHEHEAHAHAHAHAHA!!!"
"I will Hunt you Down and I will make you Suffer" He hissed as his tail swiped back and forth as it too glowed, the blade glowing as it aimed right at the dragon
"EHEHEHEHEHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Oh I look forward to our meeting...NGGHHH!!!" He said as Seraph tightened his grip on the dragon's neck "Aaahhhh....You cannot....save her cursed dragon....You are too late!"
Seraph then opened his mouth, A Shadow blast charged instantly as he fired "RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!" Disintegrating the dragon completely, the blast opening giant hole to the outside as he hissed
"Instant Regeneration.....and he's gathering energy for the blasts faster than I've ever seen before" Fear said never in her life seeing something like this "and his power is unlike anything I've ever felt, even malefor didn't have power of this magnitude"
Seraph turned back "Phonorius!" He thought, using this new awakened power to speed back down to where they were as to his horror the damage to Phonorius was unbelievable as he saw a boulder wobbling
Phonorius was wheezing and losing alot of blood as she looked over to Zirra for what she assumed would be the last time.
Fear saw how Zirra had Colta in her mouth, but each time she had gotten up, more rocks that fell kept keeping zirra to the ground "Seraph She can't get to her in time! We have to go! NOW!"
"NO! I MUST SAVE HER!!!" He thought, taking flight in his shadow form as he went against the wall and propelled himself off "Fear....In case I don't survive this....Tell Zirra.....I love her."
"I will Seraph, I Promise" Fear said
He then launched himself over Phonorius as he appeared over her, coming out of his Shadow form "Goodbye Zirra...I Love you..." He said watching the rock fall at him and closed his eyes as a Giant Splat sound filled and echoed throughout the room
