Chapter 9 Struggle: A Fight To the Finish
"The big event is about to begin. All people who bought tickets to watch should better get to their seats before the ceremony begins. Lady Tenshi, renowning champion for 3 years straight, will be singing the ceremonial song for this year. Don't forget that this year is the year a Valkyrie of the great Valhalla comes to participate in this tournament as well. This is Terra from the planet Vanguard signingoff."
Fayt, Albel, and Kitsune were wandering around Ciltz, trying to find the arena. But Ciltz was so crowded, they were having a hard time finding it.
"We're gonna be late!" Fayt exclaimed.
"I know, I know! I have to put up with this every single year! That's it, I'm using that Teleport symbology I recently learned! Fayt, Albel, get your asses over here!" Kitsune ordered.
Fayt and Albel got near Kitsune, and so she began chanting in the midst of the crowd. Before they knew it, all 3 were at the arena.
"Come on, let's go!" Kitsune sugguested.
Fayt and Albel nodded, and they all ran into the arena. Once in the arena, both Fayt and Albel became in shock as they saw all the others who've joined in this tournament as well.
"You've gotta be kidding me! All these people are here to participate?" Fayt asked.
"Damn..." Albel said as he snarled.
"Tch, too many people this year. We have a challenge on our hands." Kitsune said biting her lip.
Fayt looked at her. "'We?' Wait, you're still gonna fight with us?"
"Duh. Even when we got Nox I never said I still wasn't fighting. Besides, I haven't fought in this tournament since I was 7 years old!" Kitsune replied.
Fayt stared in astonishment and then all 3 went into the arena with the others. As the ceremony got finished, Tenshi announced the beginning battles, and go fig, Fayt's group was first. Awaiting their opponents, people were making fun of Albel for the way he looked. Boy did Albel blow off steam.
"Hey, look, a cross-dresser's battling."
"Is that person male or female?"
"No you stupid maggots, I'm a male!! And shut up or else I'll come up there and beat the hell out of all of you!!" Albel angrily stated.
Kitsune and Fayt sighed. Finally their opponents arrived. 2 people from the Klaus System entered the battle arena, and soon the fight began. With Kitsune on their team, the battle only 5 minutes. After that they left the arena and awaited their group to be called to battle again.
When their group entered onto the arena, it was darker than a deep, moist cave. But the battle itself wasn't a problem. Night fighting was Kitsune's specialty, but Albel was throwing a fit about it. He tried fighting Kitsune, but
Fayt intervened and stopped him.
Battle after battle, victory after victory, the night seemed to prolong into the morning until the minor battles were finished. Tenshi and the others in charge of the tournament decided not to tire the competitors to the bone, so they saved the final rounds until later in the next day. Everyone was sleeping either in the 10 inns in Ciltz, or outside and inside the arena. The inn where Fayt and Albel stayed was crowded, but Tenshi allowed 3 rooms to be reserved for them and Kitsune.
Fayt couldn't sleep, so all he did was stare out the window. Albel on the other hand, slept very easily as well as Kitsune. Until Fayt's eyes were ready to close all the way, he kept wondering if he was going to have to face Tenshi, cause he knew all the way in his heart, that she was the Valkyrie from Valhalla.
