They start walking after defeating the Toad.
They sit under a tree to get some rest.
"So, where are guys from?" Nanao asks.
"I am from-" Before Takagi finishes what he is saying all of a sudden 'three snakes' surround them from three sides.
The snakes are massive. Almost bigger than the toad that they fought earlier.
"Well, we have more things to welcome now." Takagi says
"In this case, I am going to the left one." Nanao says with a smile
"I am going for the right one." Takagi says and starts running
"Sigh. I guess I have to take care of this one." Takahiro says
Nanao runs toward the Snake. White smoke starts coming out of her hand; leaving a white trail behind her while running.
When she comes close to the Snake, she jumps and touches the Snake.
"Crystal Magic: Clear Prison!"
Immediately the snake's body gets covered in a clear crystal! The crystal is diamond-shaped and it is fully see-through.
"Crystal Magic: Crystal Arm"
She covers her right fist with crystal then she punches the diamond-shaped crystal that trapped the snake inside.
The crystal breaks into hundreds of pieces like glass.
"Hardening Magic: Iron Arm!"
Takahiro's arms become Iron fists. He then jumps and punches the snake in its eye. Blood splatters everyone.
The snake screams in pain while moving its head left to right.
Takahiro jumps again and hits the snake in the jaw. The snake then falls to the ground and becomes unconscious.
"Wind Magic: Wind Bow!"
Takagi makes a bow out of the wind and shoots an arrow towards the last snake. The arrow pierces the snake's head and the snake falls to the ground.
"Are you guys done as well?" Takagi asks
"Yeah." Both Takahiro and Nanao says
"Great Work!" Takagi says.
They start walking again; Roy is walking in front of them while Renjii and Mio are following him from behind.
They come to a rocky area and sit near those rocks to get some rest.
For some reason, Roy is feeling uneasy but he doesn't think much of it.
At night, the atmosphere is very chilly and quiet.
A Lion all of a sudden appears. It has blue eyes that give out an intimidating look. Any beast will shake in fear in front of him. The Lion's body is white and has black stripes.
The Lion's presence is so great that no one can ignore its presence!
Roy instantly wakes up from his sleep when The Lion approaches them.
Roy takes his sword out and takes a defensive position. Then he quietly wakes Mio and Renjii up from their sleep.
After waking up they both get shocked when they sense danger.
"What is that?" Mio says quietly and Renjii is just frozen in place.
"What should we do, Roy?" Mio asks.
"I don't know. Just stay quiet and get ready to escape. At the count of three, run separate ways." Roy says with a quiet voice.
"One…Two..Three! RUN!" Roy screams.
Mio and Roy run in a different direction as The Lion approaches them. But When Roy looks back, he sees Renjii frozen in the same place and The Lion jumps in front of him.
Roy then thinks to himself, 'What is he doing! Why isn't he running?!'
Roy then runs back toward Renjii. The Lion uses its claws to attack Renjii and at that moment Roy appears between Renjii and The Lion. He blocks The Lion's attack with his sword that is covered in flames.
Roy is struggling to block the attack, so, he tries to push Renjii away and in the process, Roy gets hurt by The Lion's claw. But the wound is not deep.
"Ughh! Damn that hurt." Roy says in pain.
After all this, Renjii gets himself together. Then The Lion gets closer to Roy, at that moment Renjii uses his magic to pick up a medium-sized rock and tries to get The Lion's attention by throwing it.
The Lion then focuses his gaze on Renjii. Taking advantage of this, Roy gets up from the ground and gets away from The Lion.
One of The Lion's abilities is the 'Beast Roar'.
Both of their bodies get frozen in place because of the roar.
'Why isn't my body moving?' Renjii thinks to himself
'Move damn it, move!' Roy says to himself but he is unable to move his body
The Lion jumps towards Roy but Roy can't do anything to defend himself from The Lion.
'NO!' Renjii screams inwardly.
'So, this is how it ends, huh.' Roy thinks to himself
