I continued to daydream as a loud explosion brought me back into the present, where the fight continued. Both combatants retrieved their swords and continued to cast their most powerful magic spells. The air filled itself with violent magic. After casting their spells, they charged each other, creating a sonic boom that knocked the debris away.
The human gained the upper hand and extensively damaged Lucifero as he cut one of his hands in one go. As I watched the ensuing death match, I returned to my memories. |___| and Lord could have come to an understanding, but the conflicting ideologies separated them. I thought of how they both met in that field of flowers, how I was speechless to see another entity like Lord and a copy of me, |___|.
The mortal yelled as an explosion appeared between them, ending the fight. I came out of hiding to check on both of them; Alpha, the mortal, was barely breathing, so I used this chance to take him.
"Coming out of hiding, Adam?" Lucifero called out to me from the smoke cloud. He cleared it out with a flick of his fingers, causing me to raise my arms and try to withstand the wind blast. I failed miserably and was sent flying.
Lucifero was standing over me, looming above me when I landed and threw me the mortal's body. "Take him and leave my sight. You need him for your plan, correct? If so, take him and flee. I wish to see what will become of him when my memories return in the next cycle."
I grabbed the mortal and flew far away towards my home without being told twice.
