Tedashii kept on running forward and eliminating every guard that came his way. His spiritas was almost depleted from his battle against Sanji, but he was glad the fight was over.
“Alright, now time to give the signal.” He said.
However, Konami had already told Lady their plan, and she already had a contingency plan. Suzuki noticed that there was not enough people here to kill. This showed that other people were warned about this and hid away. He then noticed that Konami was no longer with him, so he ran around the castle to look for her.
Lady then asked Konami to help her find Sanji since she was the only person who knew where they fought. After a moment of searching, they finally found him. He was still unconscious on the ground.
“Wake up.” Lady ordered, but no response.
She exhaled then turned him around. There she held the second and third memory shard, and quickly stabbed him with it in his head. The shards shined right until they both went through. Spiritas began to flow back in his body, and he instantly took the form of his Immortal. His hair reached up to his spine, and his eyes were pitch black with a purple-red iris.
His heartbeat was heard across the entire land. Yuri and the others felt the impact.
“What was that?” She asked.
All the men began to tremble and drop their weapon.
“W-Why are you guys afraid all of a sudden?!”
Haruki walked forward, and then pointed to the castle. A huge cloud of thunder cloaked the Rooftops, with thunder raging all over the place. Sanji appeared to need the last quarter of Cheyzar’s memory in order to be complete.
“This…power. I can feel…power, but how?” He asked.
“You have been given the second and third shard, those are his hand-to-hand combat and flight guides. You are just one shard away from becoming a true God!” Lady said.
“What do I do to get the last one?!”
She then pointed to the watch tower. There he saw Tedashii climbing up with a torch in his hand.
“Tedashii is going to warn the people of Punk Knock for their raid. Why don’t you tell your SON to get down from there?”
Sanji wasted no time and flew towards the tower.
“While they are having fun, I’ll be taking you to a special place of mine…Konami!”
Lady then knocked her out and left the scene.
Tedashii finally reached the last bar of the ladder, but then felt gravity working against him. Sanji was pulling him from his shirt until he let go.
Tedashii was back onto ground level.
He then saw Sanji standing right across him, doing a beckoning gesture at him.
“Alright, ROUND TWO!”
Tedashii got up fast and rushed towards him. He ran for a punch, but Sanji grabbed his arm and snapped his shoulder.
Tedashii laid down in silence, until the pain kicked in.
He could not bare the pain. Then Sanji began to walk around him.
“Tedashii, do you remember four years ago? Our final semester of middle school. We just turned 11, our families came together for the first time ever. Your dad and mine were bragging over how you, me and Sasha were the only three students who passed Melee class. But then something came to their mind.”
Tedashii got up and went for a kick, but Sanji easily dislocated his knee with his index finger.
Tedashii fell down to the ground once more.
“They came up with this bet that I was the best fighter out of us three, so we were told to spar. In the end, you beat Sasha, but then you both…beat me. Your dad could not stop laughing at me. He even went to the point that he let Yuri fight me as well. Do you remember what happened?”
He picked Tedashii up with his foot, then kicked him in the face.
Then grabbed him on his shirt, and punched him in his gut.
Tedashii was sent through windows of the kitchen. He crawled away to take cover away from Sanji. He pulled one of the clothes out of the shelves and gripped his teeth on it.
“(Grieving)Come on….You can do this..”
He twisted his knee back in place.
He did the same to his shoulder and tried his best to hold in the pain. He kept breathing heavily while tears and sweat ran down his face. He slowly looked behind the counter, yet still no sign of Sanji yet.
“Still hiding?” Sanji was right behind him.
Tedashii was kicked right back outside. He began to cough out blood due to the critical blows he endured from Sanji.
“Do you remember now?! I LOST TO YURI AS WELL!! A TEN YEAR OLD, BEATEN ME!! I LOST TO ALL OF YOU, AND YET I STILL CONSIDER YOU MY FRIEND!! My dad left my family after that day. He said he didn’t want to waste his time and raise a weakling…AND THAT’S WHAT EVERYONE THINKS OF ME!! A JOKE!!!”
Sanji ran to Tedashii and kicked him up in the air.
“I ENDED UP FALLING IN LOVE WITH YURI…BUT I CAN’T EVEN BEAT MY OWN GIRLFRIEND!! WHAT KIND OF MAN DOES THAT MAKE ME??!!”
He jumped and laid a ferocious onslaught of punches to Tedashii’s chest. Sanji was being bathed in blood with every fist he threw.
“SHE CONSIDERS ME THE WEAKLING, AND THAT IS ALL BECAUSE OF YOU!!!!”
~FUSHIGIRI PROWESS: HURRICANE FLARE!!!
Sanji grabbed Tedashii on his waist and flew up with superb speed. And in a split second turned back for the ground, causing the main point of damage onto Tedashii’s neck.
Sanji got right back up. Then picked up a knocked out Tedashii from his shirt.
“But in this world, things are different. I am not being belittled; I’m a king; I’ve defeated Yuri and I am DESTROYING YOU! Why would I leave this place. I am loved…and I think that you should let me be. I know Yuri is waiting for the signal…so tell her I’m waiting for her to admit that I’M BETTER THAN YOU!!” A tear shed from his eye. “If you ever respected me in your entire life…don’t come back. But if you do, I’ll fight for blood! Goodbye…Fugin..”
Sanji used all of the spiritas in his body to send Tedashii away with one of his strongest punch. Tedashii went right through the steel walls and began descending to Punk Knock. This marked today’s victory to Sanji.
Yuri and the others were still patiently waiting for his signal.
“It has been far too long. What is he doing?” She asked.
“He's probably handing a beating to Sanji, hahaha!” Sasha said.
But Brianna sat the whole time, waiting for the signal. Out of everyone, she was worried the most. Haruki came and sit next to her.
“Young lady. If you keep sitting here with no shelter, you will catch a cold.” He said, while handing her an umbrella.
“Oh…thank you Mister Haruki. I just hope everything is alright with him.”
Haruki looked up to the tower, and smile.
“Well why don’t you take a look for yourself.”
Brianna turned around, and rejoiced when she saw the torch being lit on the tower.
“HE DID IT! YURI, SASHA! THE SIGNAL!!” She yelled while running towards them.
“Great!!!” They both said
All the men regained their confidence and picked up their weapons.
“ALRIGHT EVERYONE!! ITS TIME TO CHARGE!!!” Yuri commanded.
They all ran for the castle with full-fledged adrenaline. Yuri and Sasha led the army, and Haruki and Brianna followed them from behind.
“Don’t worry Tedashii. I’m coming to help you!” Brianna said.
They all stopped running. Silence travelled through everyone while the rain settled down. Yuri and Sasha both froze in place, and all the men turned back and ran to their houses. Brianna was traumatized to their reaction.
“W-What is…going on?” She asked.
But Yuri stayed on the ground and began to cry. Haruki ran to see what was up, and he could also not believe it.
He turned back to Brianna, who also made her way forward. And then she collapsed.
She saw Tedashii’s broken body in Yuri’s arms as they all cried. Haruki just looked at the map, and only then he saw that there was a red mark at the tower.
“He fully resurrected Cheymo? This…can’t be.”
But then his attention diverted to the fact that there was still five blue dots at their location.
“GIRLS MOVE!” He yelled.
He took Tedashii and ran to the doctor. “He is still visible on the map! Meaning he is still alive!”
They all had hope once more, and ran with him. Suzuki came as well from above to run with.
“Su, and Konami?” Sasha asked.
But he just shook his head when they reach the hospital.
“DAMMIT!! HOW DID THINGS GET THIS BAD??!!” Yuri shouted, as she slammed her fist onto the wall.
“Sanji…really did all this damage to us…?” Sasha asked.
Suzuki went to hug them both to console them, while Haruki and Brianna were waiting in front of the door.
A while later, the doctor finally walked out of the emergency room. They all got up and came closer.
“DOCTOR, HOW IS HE?!” Yuri asked.
The doctor took off his coat and his glasses.
“Well I have to give it to him. He is unnatural. He had multiple fractures on his head, some internal bleeding in his salivary glands, and a couple of broken bones too. His shoulder and knee were both dislocated, but I was shocked to see that he popped them back to place.I have given him some sedatives at the moment, so he is still sleeping at the moment.”
Everyone were relieved to hear the good news, except for Brianna, who was sobbing over this situation.
“Brianna, what seems to be the problem? You heard the doctor. Tedashii is fine.” Yuri said.
“This was not supposed to happened…He promised that everything would be fine-”
“ENOUGH WITH ALL YOUR MELLOWDRAMA!!” Sasha exclaimed. “Don’t make it look as if you’re worried the most about him! YOU don’t even KNOW HIM!! I don’t know what is going on in your head, but you are nothing to him!”
She then walked away to her room. Suzuki looked both sides, then followed her.
“(Exhales) Don’t listen to her. She is just driven by jealousy at the moment. But she has a point. We should all rest and prepare for the next day.” Yuri said, and also made her way to the rooms.
Haruki also began to walk away, but then noticed that Brianna was not moving at all.
“Aren’t you coming to rest? It won’t do you any good standing here.” He said.
“I…I’m nobody to Tedashii? But…am I not his…”
She stopped and looked down to the ground. Haruki sighed and handed her some keys.
“That is the key to his room. Lets just say…I got drunk and dropped them on the floor. They said he is sleeping, but that does not mean you can’t visit him.” He winked at her.
“B-But Sir! The doctor trusted you to keep theses?” She asked.
“W-WHAT?! ME…DRUNK MAN…CAN’T UNDERSTAND…WOOHOO!!”
He began to walk in circles then ran away. She frowned at him, but also laughed at his kind gesture. She then walked into his room, and saw his unconscious body on the bed. She then placed a chair next to his bed, then used her magic to speed up his recovery and give him spiritas.
“(I’ll help you out Tedashii. And I will show to everyone that I am not a nobody to you!)”
Sanji made his way to the church, where he opened the secret entrance and the rest of the population came out. Some of the ladies were panicking due to all the dead bodies around the castle. Mikoto quickly came to see if Sanji was alright.
“Cheymo! Is everything alright?!”
He just gave her a hug then walked up onto his throne with her.
“Everyone of the rooftops. This was a call for war. It is unfortunate that we lost a lot of people, all in the expense of my son…Fugin.”
The ladies were shocked.
“But…BUT THAT’S IMPOSSIBLE!! YOUNG FUGIN WOULD NEVER DO THAT!!” Doku came and denied what Sanji said.
“How would you know, Doku? You were inside the whole time. All you’d hear was his side of the story, but guess what? Suzuki also left for Punk Knock.”
Doku could not believe it. How the kingdom fell so low after the return of Cheyzar. Sanji then called out to Lady, as she walked in with Konami tied up in chains. Doku walked towards her and wanted to slap her.
“LADY!! WHAT IS THE MEANING OF THIS-”
“DOKU!!” Sanji exclaimed.
Doku stopped by her face, and slowly turned back.
“Lady helped me during the battle to capture one of the traitors. Why attack your allies?” He asked.
Doku just contain his anger and reverted away from her. She unchained her and pushed her closer to the stairs of the throne.
“Konami. Why did you betray us? Aren’t you the princess of the Rooftops?” Mikoto asked.
“I only left because I’m on the winning side!!”
All the ladies began to laugh at her. Mikoto just laughed even louder.
“The winning side you say?! You clearly are terrible at betting, because NOBODY can beat Cheymo!” She said, then walked down the stairs. “First my son, and now my supposed daughter the side of a B*TCH WE DON’T EVEN KNOW!!” Mikoto was now face to face with Konami.
“I always knew you were no daughter of mine, but that is just more reason to be glad you aren’t!”
Konami was running out of options, so she relied to the one way to try fix everything.
“Then I challenge you Mikoto!” She said.
Everyone went quiet. The Queen picked her up from her shirt, then threw her down again.
“Are you even hearing yourself?! Do you have a death wish you brat-”
“Fine with me.” Sanji said.
Mikoto turned back at him.
“She’s just a little girl honey. What is there to fear?”
Mikoto scuffed then grabbed one of the guard’s swords. Konami stood up and took her stance.
“I’m going to make you eat your words, you brat!” Mikoto said with a smile on her face.
The ladies settled in their seats and began to cheer their queen. But Konami was already one step ahead.
“(You can do this)”
She said to herself then took the same stance as Sanji when he transforms, which caught him and Lady off guard. And then she followed up with the sync call.
