    Virgil had looked like a bell had just rang in his head as he makes a fist and slaps in it down to his open hand.

    Virgil - "Ahh that's right I completely forgot. Remi would kill us if we forgot. Actually we do have a reason as to being here. To meet with the Oracle. It just so happens Shinji here saw that they were holding a tournament and wanted us to enter." Virgil began to get excited again as he talked about the tourney.

    Shinji - "Heh" he smirked. "Naturally we'd enter. We were the two best back in our village." Shinji was brimming in confidence. "But that Grey-Hawk guy, he's nothing. I hope I get to fight him real soon. I'll make him pay for insulting me. And ehh.. umm.. you're name was what again?" Shinji had forgotten the young man's name before him.

    So they wished to speak with the Oracle. It must be business they have with her. If that was the case, then it would be a valid reason to enter in the tourney. Nir nodded his head, "Understood. It'll be tough." He then turned to Shinji, "If what you say is true, that you two were the strongest in your village, then you'll fit right in. But I warn you, most of the men here are very powerful." Nir smirked and closed his eyes, "It'll be difficult. If my memory serves me correct, there are four battle royales. Which means you'll have to fight multiple warriors at once. It'll be fun. Oh, and my name's Nir."

    Shocked both Virgil and Shinji had screamed out, "A BATTLE ROYALE!!" As they were both unaware of the terms of the tournament. In fact they just overheard the people of Galatia talking about it. Now things were getting interesting because this tournament no longer was about a 1 on 1 bout. It now involves strategy and experience. How will the boys be able to face this new challenge?

    The warriors in the cell all turned to the two young men when they simultaneously yelled out. Nir couldn't help but giggle. They were definitely new to this, he could tell. "Yes, a battle royale. Haha. There will be four sectors that warriors will be sent to at random." Nir walked past the both of them and took a seat on one of the columns. "Four victors will be decided. Then the tourney will become one-on-one matches. That'll be the semifinals. It's going to be fun! I hope you're ready to defend yourself on multiple angles. My advice is to allow some of the warriors to take themselves out. Try to evade and observe."

    The boys had just looked at each in awe. Soon their surprised looks turned to great big smiles. The two were even more excited!

    Shinji - "A battle royale you say! Haha! This is going to be real exciting. I've never been in a battle royale." Virgil is nodding his head in agreement. "You better not be in my group otherwise it'd be no fun if I'm in the finals without you."

    Although it brought Nir much happiness and joy , to see that these two friends were very passionate about battling, there were three of them. They talked about reaching the finals to face each other. But that would imply that Nir wouldn't be in. And there was no way he was going to lose this tourney. He wouldn't let his dear friend down. "It'd be amazing to watch you two battle in the Finals, but don't count out some of these warriors. I'm also going to be giving my all in this tourney, so don't count me out either! Haha! I look forward to meeting you in the arena. Even if you do happen to lose, if that does happen, you will gain much experience." Nir smiled awkwardly, hopefully they didn't take that offensive.

    The boys would face Nir once again. They both had a grin on their face. It was a grin that showed they were both accepting of his resolve and were ready to face him in battle.

    Shinji - "Hey, get this Nir. If we can't even imagine ourselves at the top, we will only stay at the level we're at now. And we can't afford to stay at this level. I'm sure you have your reasons why you can't lose but we won't be losing either." Shinji had just declared his own battle against Nir. "You're strong but I'll take you down." He then walks off.

    Virgil - Virgil starts to chuckle a little. "Hehehe, that's just like you Shinji. Ahh don't mind him but don't think he's you're only competition. See ya later Nir. Don't lose." Virgil then follows after Shinji waving back at Nir.

    "Likewise. I know you're strong. I have a strong feeling that the pressure in this room was your doing." Nir closed his eyes. Shinji had explained that he knew that Nir had his reasons to win, as they had theirs. That he would defeat Nir. If that was he believed, so be it. Nir appreciated the spirit that Shinji carried! That, he believed, would make him a good fighter and worthy opponent. "I look forward to fighting you Shinji. Promise me you guys get to the Semi-Finals." He waved as they walked off.

    At that moment a loud horn was blown. Glowing runes began burning through the wall in the room, showing four large squares. Each square contained fifteen names. Sixty in total. The names of the warriors who'd be competing in the tourney. The first sector contained two prominent names: Shinji and Grey-Hawk. The second sector: Virgil. Third Sector: Nir. As for the fourth, names of warriors who had not made their presence known in the holding cell. Outside the cries of the crowd could be heard. A tourney speaker stood at the center of the arena, waving at everyone and then bowing before the spectating king, Palidos. "PEOPLE OF GALATIA! WE PRESENT THE TOURNEY OF CHAMPIONS! WHERE WARRIORS OF PALEIDES COME TO BATTLE AND BECOME THE GUARDIAN OF THE ORACLE!" The people grew much louder as he spoke! "WE BEGIN WITH SECTOR ONE'S BATTLE ROYALE! FIFTEEN CHOSEN AT RANDOM WILL FIGHT UNTIL THE LAST MAN IS STANDING!"

    The speaker was loud enough for the warriors within the cell to hear. So they were also being filled in on the rules. "THE RULES ARE: NO KILLING. IF YOU EXIT THE ARENA, OR ARE KNOCKED OUT, YOU ARE ELIMINATED!" The arena itself was a massive circular stage, floating about ten feet from the ground. So those knocked off would find themselves falling a decent height. "WE HAVE KEPT YOU WAITING LONG ENOUGH MY PEOPLE! LET US BEGIN!!! WILL THE FIRST SECTOR CONTESTANTS PLEASE MAKE THEIR WAY TO THE ARENA!" It was time to set it off! Warriors who found their names on the sector one list began making their way through the opened gates, heading to the arena. Grey-Hawk smirked evily, knowing he'd have a chance to harm Shinji. He slowly walked through the hall, eyeing down Shinji as he did.

    As the fighters had finally started coming out from the gates, the crowd roared ever so loudly. Among the crowd there was a group consisting of a burly man, a young woman, a little girl and a wolf pup, that was pointing out a warrior they recognized.

    "Hey guys look it's Shinji!" A young woman had just pointed out Shinji who she seems familiar with. "Haha you seem awfully excited about Shinji appearing don't ya!" A huge burly man had be chuckling at the sight of the young woman pointing out Shinji. "Hey Anna don't you think she likes Shinji." He says smiling as he looks down to the little girl beside him. "Umm.. well.. you see I uhh.." the little girl named Anna was at a loss for words for she was too young to understand the true concept of relationships. "Ahh Anna don't you dare think about the two of us ever being together. I mean who could ever love an arrogant jerk like him." The young lass had crossed her arms and huffed as she grew red in the face. "Ahh Remi I'm only teasing you." The man said. "Well it was a really bad joke!" Remi said. The wolf pup had been sitting on Anna's lap the whole time.

    Shinji - "It's a good thing I wasn't stuck with Virgil or that guy Nir. It wouldn't have been fun if we fought so early." Shinji had begun to walk out through the gate. As he walked through he noticed that Grey-Hawk was eyeing him the whole way. He would stare back as to show he wasn't intimidated at all. He looked Grey-Hawk in the eye gave him a thumbs up, then quickly changed to a thumbs down as he smirked and radiated an unnatural amount of confidence. For the other. Warriors who aren't in the first block, they sat in a waiting room that looked into the stadium. They wanted to see their potential opponent. Virgil had stay behind in the holding cell. He sat near a corner as he readied himself for the next fight. A man had noticed Virgil was there and asked if he'd go watch his friend fight. Virgil's response was, "the others will watch him for me." Noting the four companions they brought along.

    The stage was set! Each warrior was on the arena stage, holding their blunt wooden weapons. In compliance with the rules, fighters could not use lethal arms. Instead thay had been given the wooden weapon of choice. They wouldn't kill, but they still packed a punch. Fifteen warriors spread apart! It'd be foolish to begin the battle close up. The speaker, who was at the center of the arena, walked off, greeting some warriors that were on the stage. The man dropped down and exited through a small wooden door. In his place was a female speaker who was stationed with the crowd. "OOOOOKAY! READY FIGHTERS!? BEGIN!!!!" The crowd went wild at the start! They were ready to see what the warriors of Paleides had to offer!

    Immediately at the start of the battle, Grey-Hawk slammed his right arm onto the stage floor. He instantly channeled his elemental magic of Earth, to slide the floor around him. The floor would violently shift, sending those who had no footing or balance flying off the edge! Six unfortunate men were eliminated at the beginning, which made things easier for Grey-Hawk. He scanned the stage to see if Shinji was still footed, tightly gripping his wooden hammer.

    In an undignified manner Shinji had lost his footing in Grey-Hawk's assault. Barely able to catch himself he nearly lost in the first 15 seconds of the match. Remi had slapped her hand to her face from embarrassment after watching Shinji. The burly man had been laughing at how pathetic Shinji looked while Anna and the wolf pup looked on. Just as Shinji recovered he was attacked by a very tall man that would easily tower over Shinji. On sight, Shinji got hyped as his battle would finally begin. He clashed with the tall man. Going strike for strike as neither of them would connect but before long Shinji had gained the upper hand. He threw a feint for the man up high then quickly swept at his feet knocking him off balance. "Sorry but you were just so wide open." Shinji said. He proceeds to then prop the man with his wooden spear and launched him outside the ring. Shinji then looks around to notice some fighters fighting while Grey-Hawk was staring him down. There were now 8 warriors left.

    "Alright Shinji!!" The burly man jumps with excitement as he cheers on his friend. "And here I thought you didn't like fighting Biggs." Remi had said. "I really don't but this fight has gotten me really excited!" Biggs replies

    Grey-Hawk managed to lock onto Shinji, who almost fell victim to his ability. The young man managed to eliminate a warrior after his recovery, which was impressive. But Grey-Hawk wouldn't be that same warrior! He was much stronger and hungry! Hungry to eliminate Shinji! Grey-Hawk charged at the young men, until another warrior intercepted his track. They lunged in with a wooden spear, hoping to strike him in his chest. "I'll be the one to eliminate you Grey-Hawk!!!"

    With a single hand, Grey-Hawk caught onto the end of the wooden weapon, snatching it from the warrior. Using his other hand, he swung the wooden hammer against the warrior's helmet. The blow was strong enough to send him rolling off the edge. "Out of my way fool!!!!" The crowd grew much louder at the violence! Two warriors decided to take on Grey-Hawk. One with a wooden sword and the other with club. "So you're teaming up against me!? Pathetic!" They both charged Grey-Hawk! One would veer to the right and attempt to swipe at him horizontally. The other went to the left and jumped above to slam the club down on him.

    Grey-Hawk jumped backwards, slightly avoiding the sword swipe. Instead, the wooden sword would hit the other warrior on his ankles while in mid-air. In a quick move, Grey-Hawk jolted forward, swinging his hammer and smacking dead into the warrior in air. He was sent into the other warrior and both flew right off the stage. Such sheer power amazed the crowds!

    Shinji had prepared himself, as Grey-Hawk had charged him. But was intercepted by another warrior. While Grey-Hawk was busy, a man had come to sneak attack the unsuspecting Shinji. He was struck in the back of the head rolling forward. He quickly turns to face the man but he had vanished. Then again from his back he was attacked. Again he looks back but the man was no where. Shinji had begun to focus his sense and felt the presence of magic right behind him. He quickly turns and faces the man. This man had a wooden sword in his hand and charged at Shinji claiming that he would end him. Just as he is about to be attacked Shinji is hit from the side. Shinji caught a glimpse and saw it was the same exact man. There were two of them. It was clear this man could use magic. "I didn't want to have to do this so early but I guess you leave me no choice." Shinji says. He breathes in and then out. He charges at the man with the presence of magic radiantjng from his body and strikes down with his lance with a force powerful enough that it broke pieces of the stage and caused a small smoke screen. The man who had the double had them both jump in different directions. Quickly, Shinji runs down one of them and takes him out only to reveal it was a clone. He then sprints back towards the other at a very fast pace and strikes him down with one swing. Knocking him out of the ring. 4 fighters remained.

    The battle was growing in intensity! One of the warriors managed to make a clone of himself, messing with Shinji! This had thrown off Grey-Hawk, causing him to stop in his tracks. "What-" The young warrior was being toyed with until he tapped into his own magic, which boosted his speed and strength greatly. One attack from Shinji happened to crater the arena on one edge! Smokescreening the area. The crowd gasped, trying to see what they could spot in the thick smoke. As it cleared they could see Shinji eliminating the warrior. Instantly they cheered! It appeared as if they had their favorite! It all angered Grey-Hawk! "No! No! No!!!! I will not let this little shit outshine me!!!"

    Grey-Hawk charged in with his hammer. Reaching Shinji! He didn't even care about the ofher two warriors, he wanted Shinji now! The man raised his hammer and brought it down, hoping to smash Shinji's head in! "I will destroy you!!!" The Oracle, who was beside the king, turned to her Lord with a worried look. The battle may get ugly, and she didn't want anything bad happening.

    The announcer had just been shouting how this battle was heating up and it was only the first round! "WOW!! CAN THIS GET ANY MORE EXCITING!" As he said that, Grey-Hawk had answered his question with a quick strike to Shinji. The latter was able to counter his attack but was being push back. "Damn you, how are you this strong?" Shinji had thought to himself because he was still using his magic to increase his strength. Eventually they finally broke off and Shinji had smirked. "I guess you aren't just all bark. So as a special treat I'll take you on with half my strength." He says arrogantly. He focused his magic increasing his strength further. He charged at Grey-Hawk and swung straight down at him.

    The little wolf pup that was on Anna's lap had become agitated. He stood up and leapt from Anna's lap and ran up the seating area as if he were looking for something. Anna had been startled by this and ran after him. "Ahh.. Koji wait!" She cries. Remi had noticed Anna was leaving and she stopped her, "where are you going Anna?" She said. Anna replied, "Koji is acting weird and ran this way, I'm going to go get him." "Do you want me to come with you?" Remi says. "No it's ok I'll only be a few." Anna smiles. "Alright hurry up back then," Remi smiles back and Anna scurries off looking for Koji.

    At this time, two men had appeared covered in all black outside of Galatia. They had walked off an airship. Every inch of their body was covered. A crew member had walked off as well. "You guys have 3 hours before we are ready to fly again. So you can take your time." The two had said nothing and walked towards Galatia.

    Things were getting heated!!! As Grey-Hawk slammed down, Shinji managed to counter. But he'd feel the raw strength of Grey-Hawk! Everyone in the crowd was out of their seat, cheering and waiting to see what would happen. The other two warriors were engaged in combat themselves, until they caught sight of what was going on between Shinji and Grey-Hawk. "These guys are strong! We should just attack them while they're focused on each other!!" The other warrior nodded in agreement. They broke off and ran towards the two! Meanwhile, Shinji was charging Grey-Hawk with much more power, after stating he was using only half. This only pissed Grey-Hawk off even more. "You little shit!!!! You dare use only half power against me!? I am Grey-Hawk! The Mountain of Sansah!!!"

    Grey-Hawk swung his wooden hammer with much force, clashing with Shinji's lance. The impact caused a shockwave that was strong enough to send the attacking warriors flying back and off the arena stage. Everyone watched in awe as the two last warriors dueled it out! "AMAZING!!!!!! SUCH POWER!!!" Said the female speaker as she jumped out of her seat. Some of the male watchers around her googled at her behind once she stood up. Such perverts they were. Nir watched on with a smile, entertained with the battle so far. Perhaps Shinji would be a good opponent afterall.

    Returning to the battle, Grey-Hawk's wooden hammer shattered. He was sent a bit back from the clash, but managed to regain balance. "Dammit!!" After noticing that they were the last warriors left, he'd begin his sadistic plan. The man would slam his palm on the ground. From the edge of the circular platform, a rock wall would rise and move towards the center, creating a dome of rock! The crowd gasped, and some of them began booing because they could no longer see. The Oracle would even turn to the king again to see if he would approve of this, in which he did. "IS THIS EVEN LEGAL!? WE DON'T KNOW WHAT'S GOING?" Said the speaker. Boos grew much louder, until the king had no choice but to act. "Desmond, show us what goes on!" A small man in robes stepped forward and raised his arms. His eyes would begin glowing, creating four large circular mirrors. They'd hover above the rock dome formed on the arena and would begin displaying everything going on within the dome.

    The crowd would begin calming themselves, now able to see the battle again. The king would nod towards Desmond with a smile, "Good work my friend." Chaos had been averted. "WOW! WE CAN NOW SEE WHAT'S GOING ON BETWEEN THE TWO! ISN'T THIS MAGIC AMAZING!?"

    Inside of the dark dome, Grey-Hawk grinned evily. He tossed the broken end of his hammer and reached into his pants, pulling out a small dagger. "Today, you die boy!" The crowd outside could not make out the small weapon, mainly because of the darkness within the dome. But if one had a skillful eye, perhaps they could spot something.....

    Now is the time for the real battle. During the clash Shinji's wooden spear had broke in two. He wasn't familiar with using dual weapons so he abandoned them both. Analyzing the situation Shinji thought to himself. It was impossible to take him only with these pieces of wood since the reach wouldn't allow it. Just as he went in to attack Grey-Hawk, the area surrounding them had enclosed creating a rock dome. Unfortunately for Shinji he wasn't accustomed to this new setting and couldn't see what was in front of him. He was literally fighting blind. "Damn you Grey-Hawk!! Resorting to a cheap trick like this huh!?! Show yourself and fight me !!!!" Shinji had shouted looking around since he could be longer see or feel Grey-Hawk's presence.

    "What a dirty trick! How is that even allowed!" Remi had cried out. "Do you think he'll be ok?" Biggs asked. "He better be or else he'll have to face me next!" Remi proclaimed just as the the crowd was getting more and more riled up the King had sent a man by the name of Desmond out to reveal what was going on inside the dome. Straight above the dome was a thought projection that showed exactly what was going in inside. However dim they could still see the fighters. "HEY LOOK IN THE SKY EVERYBODY!!" One fan had pointed it out that the fight was still on. "WE CAN SEE!" "THIS FIGHT IS TOO GOOD NOT TO SEE!" The people were now calmed and continued to cheer on. Meanwhile, Anna had actually left the arena while going after Koji.

    There was darkness within the dome. Silence. Grey-Hawk had Shinji where he wanted him. The young man couldn't see with the low visability. Grey-Hawk, however, could feel his opponent out using his Earth magic. Everything was beginning to look in his favor. "Let me ask you boy, how do you want me to kill you?" The man walked towards Shinji slowly, holding his dagger close. "Should I slit your throat? Puncture your heart?" Using Shinji's voice from what he yelled out, and the Earth sensory, he was able to pinpoint his location.

    Grey-Hawk would quickly dart at Shinji in the darkness, slashing at his arm with the dagger. He was going to play with him before finishing him off. The crowd outside could only make out two figures in the pitch dark. Such a low move had changed Nir's smile into a serious look. How could a warrior like Grey-Hawk resort to something like that? It was absolutely pathetic.
