    Stella turned her head to R-17, who was beside her. There was still a bit of hatred in his heart, and stubborness as well. That, however, didn’t change the way Stella looked at him. She didn’t expect him to thank her, because of the feelings he harbored for Galatians. ”R-17.....I don’t expect you to thank me at all. Currently, you are the only one down here who can help me. I know that somewhere inside, no matter how far in, there is reason and good.” She turned to Koji, who was the closest to them both, and finally Biggs. ”Without our help, they’ll surely die. I need you right now R-17.” Stella looked up at the soldier as she knelt down, picking Koji up in her arms. ”That demon has wronged your allies, who abandoned you. Do not let it wrong those who care about you. Please.”

    In the airship, Kira and Anna continued to speak while the latter healed both Benkai and Nir. Kira smirked when Anna had stated her name, in response to Kira saying, ’”Little girl.”’ She closed her eyes and scratched her head, ”Sorry about that!” In her embarrassment, Kira dropped down on her bottom, smiling at the young girl. ”Anna...? Such a pretty name! My name’s Kira!” Benkai’d suddenly awaken from his unconscious state, questioning those who were there. Kira had been startled at first but Anna was quick to tell him that he needed rest. ”Anna’s right Benkai! You’re in no condition to go back down there! You’ll be killed! Stella is the one who brought you up here. She’s grabbing R—I forgot his number already, jeez. But you know who I’m talking about! Oh, and some of Anna’s friends too.” She rubbed her chin as she pondered on R-17’s title.

    Things weren’t going to well below on the battlefield! Before Van could even land the hit on the regenerating demon, Miranda had sandwiched herself between them, casting out a magical orb that she’d place above the demon. Unable to veer from his original path, Van’s attack had hit Miranda instead! ”What are you doing!?!?” As both attacks had hit, there was suddenly a powerful explosion within the crater! Both Van and Kuro had been sent out of the even larger crater! They’d land outside, skidding across the ground. Kuro’s armor that had covered Van, was torn at many areas. ”OW! OW! THAT REALLY HURT!” Van sat himself up, looking towards the crater. ”Why would she do that!? That fool!” The shockwave had shook the airship above, causing Kira to panic a bit. ”Oh my goodness!!!! What was that!?” Stella’d also be alarmed. ”Oh no! We need to hurry!!”

    Benkei had stood there as the girls came to the rescue of koji and biggs while anna was healing his wounds. She would tell him to rest but he would tell her off a bit "Resting is the least of my worries dear friends, that demon needs to die!". Benkei would also hear as kira would try to mention R-17 "You dare try to rescue that traitor! if it not for him i might have been able to beat that bastard of a superior of his or even worse how he tried to get us both killed". Benkei was furious with what was going on but his injuries were to much for his body to handle as he just collapse back down on the floor. Outside the battle could be heard as R-17 and stella were still on the battle ground trying to get back to the ship "your main priority should be saving yourselves not all these people, whatever that monster is your other friends seem to be entertaining it".

    Van and Kuro where now outside of the crater. When Shinji appeared before them, holding his arm. ”You shouldn’t interfere with Miranda. She’s far more capable of handling herself against that demon. She’s done it be-“ Shinji almost nearly slipped up and revealed to much information on the demon. ”She’s one of the most powerful women I know.” He’d continue with speaking on her strength.

    The demon would emerge from the walls unscathed. He’d continued to reattach his arms. Miranda had struggled to get up after taking such a large impact. She’d use for the time being self healing. “Tch, if only I was a better medic.” She’d suck her teeth complaining about the minimal healing she could do for herself.

    Virgil’s Inner Mind

    Darkness would surround Virgil once again. ”Noo!!” “Virgil my boy!!” Both Nostradamus and Remi would shout as Virgil was losing the battle. ”It was only a matter of time... The boy truly is remarkable.” The demon would watch as it finally was seeing the results it wanted.

    Gadile

    The demon had finally reattached it’s arms. “Dammit that healing was way too quick!” Miranda would be visibly upset with the healing prowess of the demon. Shinji would notice as the demon emerged from the crater. He clenched his fists. The demon would jump scaling the wall. Leaping outside of the crater the demon would scream in anger. It’s voice could be heard all over and the winds it created, where devastating. Debris would fly everywhere, including the bodies of soldiers. Shinji would brace himself so he wouldn’t be thrown with the wind. Anna would hold on to the air ship trying not to get thrown off.  Biggs’ bodybwould start to move little by little. Eventually his body would fly off as well if not held down by someone. After it’s big screech, the demon had noticed the air ship Kira, Anna, Benkei and Nir were on, which was fairly close by. It would cross its arms taking in a slow great deep breathe. Now facing the airship. ”The hell is it doing?” Shinji would ask under his breathe. Uncrossing it’s arms the demon opened it mouth wide. An enormous blast of dark energy would fire from its mouth shooting straight towards the airship. It was large enough to cover the entire ship and then some. The speed at which it came, would anyone from interfering with its target, in fact if someone were to try to block this attack, there defense would be penetrated with ease. Anna had used her holy magic to erect a shield protecting the four but the shield was crushed with little resistance. The entire airship was engulfed as the wave of the blast had continued its path to a much further location.

    Van sat there, his hand resting on his knee. There wasn’t much he could do against this demon. As he watched over the giant crater, Shinji appeared before him, confirming his thought. But there was a sudden pause in Shinji’s statement. There was something that he withheld from Van. ”I already know that the demon is your friend.” The dark matter forming Van’s armor began seeping off of his body, forming into the spectral being that Kuro was. ”I heard when the chubby friend of yours called out to the demon. What was his name again? Oh, yeah, Virgil!” Kuro snickered. ”I can see why you’ve all tried so desperately to protect the demon. That woman must know you all as well.” Van slowly turned towards Shinji. ”She must have dealt with this in the past.”

    Back on the airship, Kira faced a Benkai who awakened with the same hatred he held earlier. Even with his wounds, he wanted to go down and face the creature one more. But it was pointless, he had succumbed to his wounds and collapsed. ”He did do us wrong....You’re right...But he was abandoned by his own men! I just feel bad...” She looked down in Stella and R-17’s direction. ”He deserves another chance. And you should just rest up Benkai. Your wounds will never heal.”

    Stella walked alongside R-17, with Koji still rested in her arms. The soldier was clearly upset, having been left behind. ”Those people must have a good reason. We can’t just leave them to die.” As she spoke, the demon was beginning to exit the crater, having regenerated completely. It had released another screech, conjuring up powerful gusts! Bodies were lifted from the ground, having been taken up in the wind. ”Oh no!” Stella’d raised her arm, sending an orb from her hand towards Biggs. It’d trap him inside its bubble, where Stella’d now have control. ”I’ve got you Biggs!” On the airship Kira pressed down on Nir to hold him down. ”Where’d this come from!?”

    At the crater’s edge, Van continued to watch the demon. Although he didn’t agree with Shinji, he had no choice but to trust Miranda. Unfortunately, he wasn’t prepared for what was to come next. The demon had fired off a blast of darkness in the airship’s direction. ”No....” Van whispered to himself as he turned in the airship’s direction. Within seconds, the beam had completely shot through the ship, destroying the hull and causing it to descend rapidly! It’d crash onto the ground, creating a fierce blaze! ”NO!” There was a look of horror on Stella’s face, as tears would begin forming in her eyes.

    The battle raged on with the demon as he completely regenerated his wounds. He screeched and began to send powerful shock waves across the field, causing the winds to send dead bodies flying. The winds began to scoop up the warriors in the air. stella had created a barrier around biggs while holding onto koji. R-17 held onto a tree that was close by while he had wrapped stella with his galatian  belt so she would not escape him "I am not saving you because i have to but i am doing it to survive! What is that dam beast!". As the storms raged on the beast had begun to rise from the crater and glared at the ship. "WHAT IS THAT CREATURE DOING NOW!". As R-17 yelled through the storm the demon had opened its mouth wide and shot a devastating  beam at the air ship carrying benkei and the crew. The ship came crashing down  with the hall completely destroyed. "what in bloody hell is happening now urgh" Benkei with the little energy he had left was left with no choice but to create a pillar of stone from underneath them to stab the center of ship to ease the fall. The ship was engulfed in flames as they had to evacuate

    Shinzo and Van would have there moment to converse. Van had mentioned that he knew the identity of the demon. This had Shinji ok edge now. ”It’s not.. it’s not his fault he became that thing...” Shinji would speak quietly but loud enough for Van and Kuro to hear. ”It happened so long ago, it..” Shinji paused for a moment. ”I really don’t have to explain anything to you. So you found out that that demon is really Virgil, big deal. We still won’t let you people touch him.” The tension quickley rose between Van and Shinji rose quickly. Just before Van could get a word out the demon had shrieked and sent the beam of darkened at the airship.

    The beam had completely destroyed the airship. It had been sent crashing down into the ground with a loud thud. Although Benkei was able to create an escape route to exit the shop it wasn’t nearly fast enough for them to escape unscathed. The impact of the blast had shot the Galatians onboard in different directions. Nir being unconscious still had no way of defending himself. Even if he were conscious it would be difficult to protect yourself between the blast, impact and the fall. Benkei and Kira would also be thrown around. Anna had lost all concentration and couldn’t properly form a barrier. She get slammed into the ground rolling a decent distance from her initial landing spot. She looked completely beaten as she finally stopped rolling. Literally with no strength left she had laid their motionless.

    Shinji would drop to his knees as he witnessed the airship being destroyed. He’d punch the ground. And again. And again. And again. And again until he started bleeding. He wouldn’t stop even with the blood dripping from his hand. ”Dammit! Dammit! Dammit!” He would be saying repeatedly.

    Virgil’s Inner Mind

    The demon in the mist would laugh meniaclly. ”That was quiet refreshing. You humans shall now know despair.” Remi would have tears running down her face as she and Nostradamus were forced to look upon this sight. Nostradamus would use his magic to shoot at the mist. ”You are an old fool. Those attacks cannot harm me, for I do not have a physical body yet.” “I shall deal with you myself, come out and face me.” Nostradamus was adamant in fighting this demon and ending this farce. Of course old one. But in due time. Until I am able to transfer my full consciousness into this body I will unfortunately have to wait to kill you.” Remi would walk over to Virgil. The mist would continue to burn her skin much like before. She’d flinch from the pain but would slowly continue on to Virgil. “Remi!! No it’s dangerous!!” Nostradamus would shout at her but she continued on. Favoring Virgil now she would breathe heavy. She’s raise her right hand. Without much more hesitation she swung her hand across Virgil’s face slapping him with intense force. It would be a moment before she spoke but Remi was breathing very heavy with the tears still running down her face. ”How...? How could you be so pathetic? How could you.. the man we look to as a leader... the man who we look to as a brother.. the man who we look to for strength when we need it.. how could you be so pathetic?” Nostradamus would be more calm as he looked onto the young lass. He would start reaching for her hand slowly. ”NOO! Do not listen to her! She is only saying that because it’s convenient for her. You see how much power you have now with my help. With me you can utilize you maximum strength. Come back with me and you can get even stronger.” ”Whatt?? No Virgil don’t believe him! That’s not true! I-“ Virgil had retracted his hand and started to hold his head. He was in a vulnerable state in which he did know who to trust.

    Gadile

    The demon would start acting strange. It would be holding its head squirming about as if it was in pain. It would start attacking randomly. Whether it be a magic attack or physical attack, the demon would attack indiscriminately. It would jump from place to place destroying everything in sight. ”What the hell is going on?” The demon would move about reaching Anna’s General Location where she finally starts to regain consciousness. The demon would stare her down as she is now at the mercy of this killing machine.

    Van quietly stood beside Shinji. He’d absorb everything that Shinji said like a sponge, with the intention to bring it up at a later time. For now, however, they’d have to deal with the turmoil they were presented with. From his peripheral, Van could see Shinji drop to his knees, beginning to hammer down on the ground in frustration. It was evident that Virgil’s, no, whatever it was that was inhabiting his body, has done something like this before. Quite a toxic relationship they had with the young man because of that. ”.....” Kuro’d hover before Van, ”That bastard got them!!! What should we do!?” The spectral fiend appeared disturbed, and although he could convey an emotion, somehow you could tell that he was worried. ”Split. Scan the crash site and save anyone you can. Make it the priority to recover the young girl first.” Kuro’d give a subtle nod, splitting into four bodies. They’d all fly out towards the downed airship. ”If you’re going to be doing that, I suggest you stay here.” With that said, he’d run out behind Kuro.

    Stella was still in shock. She couldn’t believe what had transpired. So many negative thoughts were beginning to run through her head, images of charred bodies and finally Nir. They were taking too much on her. The young woman would suddenly drop to her knees, releasing her hold on Koji. Unfortunately, her magic wouldn’t be sustained because of current state, causing the bubble around Biggs to dissipate. Tears ran down her cheeks, falling to the ground. ”Nir......Kira......Benkai........” Stella looked up at the site, ”....Anna.....” Her eyes widened as she slowly turned towards R-17. ”They were all—all on the ship....”

    The four bodies of Kuro had arrived at the crash site. It was a mess. There were fires, and collapsed sections of the airship. Things were looking very grim for those who were on board. ”This isn’t good...SPREAD OUT!” All four bodies quickl dispersed, each covering a different area of the ship. One had come across Benkai, who appeared to be sapped of energy. Judging by the pillar that punctured the ship, Kuro assumed that it was his doing. ”Monk! You’re still alive! Don’t move, I’ve come to save you!” The spectral body descended upon Benkai, forming an armor across his body. He’d begin supplying him with energy. It wasn’t long until the other Kuro spotted Nir, who was trapped beneath rubble. He had been impaled through his side by some of the piping. ”SHIT! Not good!!!” Kuro quickly hovered down, growing out large arms that’d push the debris off of Nir. It’d then cover Nir in his entirety, acting as a life support. ”Don’t die on me!” At the same time, the third Kuro had found Kira. She was unconscious, her arm deeply cut by some metal. There was also a small wound above her left eye. ”Please....please don’t take me....” The young girl appeared to be mumbling something. Kuro didn’t mind it and quickly covered her as well. Finally, the last had arrived at Anna. The poor girl was unconscious as well, having sustained some cuts. ”I’ve got you little one!” Kuro had done the same with her, forming as a protective coating over her. Each Kuro, having found someone, would then pull out from the crash site. Meeting at an area that was far from the demon, who seemed to be attacking haphazardly. Van rush towards the location, having a shared mind with Kuro, but on his path he’d stumble upon Stella, Koji, Biggs and R-17.

    ”Stella. You weren’t on the sh-“ He’d notice her sobbing on her knees. ”We have to move out of here. That demon is losing control. R-17, grab the big guy.” Van quickly moved forward, grabbing Stella and helping her up to her feet. With his other arm, he’d wrap around Koji, raising him up.

    The demon had brought upon the warriors pure destruction. He had broken their wills as well as their very spirits. It would seem as if all was lost but the demon began to act strangely as he would have a inner battle with himself. The demon before hand had destroyed the ship scattering all the warriors aboard. Benkei was thrown away from the rest of the group trying to get up with little energy he had. He would collapse from the wounds he sustained from earlier. Just then a piece of kuro would envelope benkei in a instant creating a armor of sorts to heal him and give him energy. Benkei would look in surprise "Hey little rat, i am glad to see you here" Benkei would appreciate kuro help. Benkei would walk around searching for the others "You have a lock on the others if any are alive and wounded" Benkei would pray that the others were safe and alive, that no more lives should be taken by this demon. In the distance R-17 with stella would stand and watch as the ship was destroyed and her friends were presumably dead "Well luckily we were not on that ship then your friends were fools for trying to save others, they should have ran away from here". With little care for what happened to the others or the fact that she was heartbroken he glared at her "Stop crying only the strong and righteous survi..."As he spoke van had appeared before them as R-17 looked upon his enemy. He had eased stella pain and carried her as well as koji telling him to help biggs up as they have the location to the others "The hell with that! do i look like your lackey! I am only here to live and survive so i can cast revenge upon you and those that betrayed me" . R-17 was very angry at what had happened to him in general from his own comrades leaving him to die and van killing his friends. He was weak and broken but knew van could kill him in a instant so he walked towards biggs and began to help him up. Meanwhile Benkei and kuro began the search for the injured so he could help heal them and save them "Kuro you fought the demon up close like i have what did you learn? anyway weakness or something we can exploit" Benkei still did not know the true identity of the sad virgil

    With the many Kuros running around helping the Galatians, things had not been in their favor. Most of the Galatians were knocking on death’s door. Anna while regaining consciousness had been helped by one of the four split Kuros. ”Th thank you..” She would struggle to get up but her injuries would begin healing. Her fatigue however would not be recovered and she would breath heavy. She would turn to see the airship or all that’s left of it. She’d gasp. ”How could he.. how could he do this..? This.. this can’t be right.” Anna was sad and confused. The man she adored like an older brother was no longer the same person. Loud crashes and explosions could be heard in the distance as Anna would turn in that direction. She would watch as the demon would thrash around. It got progressively closer and closer to her. She was so frightened, she could no longer move. The demon had finally stopped its thrashing as it set its eyes on Anna. It blitzed all the way to her in a flash. This young girl could keep her composure and would fall to the ground in fear. The demon would notice this spectral like armor encasing Anna and it had confused the demon a bit. The demon would look up and down Anna, inspecting her. Eventually it would appear angered and let off another loud screech. This was the same screech that disrupted Kuro’s spectral form earlier. The screech was even more devastating, so much that it would completely repel Kuro’s armor from Anna leaving her without defense. After it’s screech the demon would bark at Anna as if it was trying to eat her. Something was off though. As close as the demon got it never did touch her.

    Virgil’s Inner Mind

    Virgil had been in a state where he could no control himself. Between the demon and Remi battling with words, Virgil wasn’t sure what to believe. ”You are different from the rest of them. You are special. I know just how special you are and if you let it happen, I can show you just how special you are.” ”No don’t listen to him! Yes of course you are special! Especially to us! We can’t lose you too!” ”You see this boy! She does admit it! You are special! But her idea is much different. She intends to use you for her own gain. She was never really your friend.” “Damn you!” Nostradamus would get angered and fire out at the mist. ”The old one tried to silence me. That’s proof they don’t want you to know something.” ”Virgil please don’t listen to him! He’s lying to you!” Virgil would start to hold his head even tighter. He’d start wailing as if he was in excruciating pain. This was when the demon on the outside world would appear in front of Anna. Remi and Nostradamus would notice immediately. ”Virgil.. you’re still you. Please don’t do this. We are only here to help.” “Virgil my boy...” Nostradamus would say. Virgil would remove his hands slowly from his head. The demon on the outside would begin barking at Anna. Remi and Nostradamus both knew what is about to happen now. Remi rushed over to Virgil ignoring the pain. ”Stop it Virgil! This isn’t like you!” ”The little girl has to go boy. She is the biggest obstacle in your path. When she dies you will be able to gain immense power. Kill her now.” ”Please don’t!” ”Kill her.” ”Don’t do it!” Virgil would begin to raise his hand. Just like the demon on the outside, it’s hand would raise too. Virgil was preparing to strike Anna down. Remi and the demon would continue going back and forth. Virgil would then violently throw his arm down as if trying to pierce something in front of him.”STOOOPP!!”

    Gadile

    The demon mimicking Virgil would have its arm raised. ”please don’t hurt me.. please don’t.. please..” Anna would more and more scared as her life was now in danger. Tears rolled down her face. She was still frozen in fear. She tried to utter words but nothing would come out. She had heavy breathing and her chest felt tight. Her bodies trembling. The demon’s claws were inches away from Anna. The demon would then reraise it’s arm and violently throw it down at Anna. She shut her eyes. Blood would splatter all over the field. The demon had hit its mark.

    The demon was busy rampaging during Kuro’s evacuation. Benkai had been secured, and was safe, asking Kuro about what he had learned in his battle with the demon. ”What I learned? Oh right! Well, besides the fact that we’re outmatched against that creature, I learned that it happens to be a friend of that group. His name’s Virgil. This isn’t the first time he’s done this Benkai.” The Kuro clone safeguarding Benkai led him straight to the meeting location. Nir was also found there, still being replenished by Kuro’s clone. ”You seem capable of moving yourself. I’m going to add more to Nir’s recovery.” The clone dettached itself from Benkai, fusing with the one covering Nir. Clone number three, which encased Kira, would soon reach the location, gently laying her on the ground. ”We’re just missing the little girl!”

    It didn’t take Van long to also arrive. There was a bit of a delay, where Van had stared down R-17, but the Duran soldier came to his senses and aided them in carrying Biggs. He walked towards Benkai and co., carrying Stella with his left arm and Koji with his right. ”As long as she’s safe. That’s all that matters as of now.” Stella had looked up at everyone, realizing that they had indeed survived the crash. ”Nir! Is he okay!? And Kira!?” She stepped forward, running over to Nir’s unconscious body. ”What’s happening to him?” Van followed behind her, ”Kuro is supplying him with energy...and healing the wound on his side. He’ll be alright Stella.” Van then turned to Benkai, who regained his consciousness, ”Do you know the truth about that thing?” Kuro snickered, ”Of course he’ll be alright! I’m healing—Shit! Bad news!! That demon’s got my other body!!!”

    The clone that had helped Anna was intercepted by the demon. It was no face to face with the young girl, screeching into her terrified face. The force was strong enough to disrupt the clone’s hold on the girl, tearing Kuro off of her frail frame. ”Dammit!!!!” Kuro’s clone was helpless as the demon raised its arm, striking it’s target! ”!!!!”
