    Perhaps staring intensely during an active battle where there was only one other person to cover for her -- and that person was currently writing in pain some distance away -- wasn't the best idea. If she wasn't sure, the pain in her side certainly confirmed it. "Aaagh!" She managed to stay airborne, and narrowed her eyes. "All the grains of sand are infused with its energy," she told Sarada when she recovered and joined her in the air. "I should be able to drain it by touching the ground."

    "Then do that. I'll cover you." With only a nod of confirmation from Parsley, Sarada charged ahead to face the sand elemental head on. Fists charged with ki, she let her finger glide across the ground before moving to unleash an unrelenting volley of punches and kicks on the elemental.

    The Masamune.


    "IT SEEMS YOU WERE RIGHT, OLD FRIEND..." The sword spoke, it's voice booming and ancient. "IT SEEMS NONE LEFT HERE POSSESSES THE SOUL OF SWORD, THE HEART OF STEEL, NOR THE STRENGTH OF MINE TO RECEIVE MY BLESSING AND TUTELAGE!"

    Durive, surprisingly respectful for once, bowed his head regretfully, tears streaming from his tiny eyes as a vortex opened up above in the sky, The Masamune slowly ascending into it, where it led, was anyone's guess.

    "TAKE HEED HOWEVER, MY FRIEND. THE BLESSING OF THE SWORD WILL BE PASSED DOWN. AND THE LINEAGE OF THE ULTIMATE BUSHIDO WILL BE RESTORED! IF NOT THIS DAY, THAN ANOTHER..."
    As Praxat notices the sword and hears it's voice, something inside her sparks. She turns back towards the stand and approaches it. Praxat then gets on one knee as if to bow." I beg you, please mentor me in Swordsmanship," Praxat said.

    When I raise it, fire and light stream forth

    ...and the moment the rake met the strike and stopped moving, the ability activated, engulfing his foe in a twisting maelstrom of magic... ki?... magicki fire!



    The rake was a pretty cumbersome weapon, all-in-all, and he hadn't mastered it by any stretch of the imagination, but one could pull off some pretty deadly trick (like this) with its fire and ice abilities.
    "HUUURAAAAGGGGGHHH!" was Ohknee's last cry of agony as he was hit point blank by the fire spiral. The gap in their power meant he was in no way able to withstand a magically enhanced ability like that. His ashes and dual swords fell to the ground, the latter landing on the beach with soft, barely audible thuds.

    Just then, Skullos, Lord of the Edge emerged from the ocean to face Totoma. "You fashion yourself a hero? The weak are anxious for justice and equality!" He beat his chest with his fist. "The strong pay no heed to either. And if I somehow fall in battle this day, I shall face the gods and walk backwards into hell!"

    Durive, making noises akin to unintelligible angry chirping, began to lash around, hoping to poke Inanna in the eye with his stick arms.

    But alas a mishap has gone afoot! The Masamune had been grabbed by the Lookout' resident Oni. But no pact was made! Perhaps if the frog could communicate with the Oni this matter could be solved post haste.

    As for the Masamune.

    "ONE SUPPOSES ONE DAY COULD EASILY TAKE A MILLENIA..." it pondered in a tired tone of voice. "WHAT IS TIME TO ONE SUCH AS I...?"

    Successful, Durive would find that Inanna barely cared, opting instead to squeeze the... thing, tighter and pull hold it slightly father away.

    "What... even are you?"

    For all the grandstanding, Shōchū was uncertain about what action to take. Rex's power level had grown since the mountain incident, which meant that he had fully recovered and there was no telling if what he presented now was even the full capacity. Then there was the case of Charo's presence within. He, or rather, something resembling her cousin, had taken hold of Rex before, which left her initial plan of killing the beast on shaky grounds. Unfortunately, what she did know was that she could not let him do as he pleased, especially now that he was in prime condition to grown his power through consumption.

    The naginata blade popped out of the head of her weapon and once more did she point it at the saurian, "What does matter is that I can not allow you to progress any further."

    "Good. I was hoping it wouldn't take me long to find my next meal. Will it be a two-course meal?" Rex replied, glancing over Shōchū, then Lantro.

    At once, Durive stopped fidgeting and displayed two badges. One identifying him as chief of the GP, the other identifying him as chief of the Time Patrol. The diminutive creature looked rather proud of himself.

    "I mean I'm immortal, so..." Inanna replied, turning the shiny thing over in her hand. "You a spirit sword?"
    "A SPIRIT OF THE SWORD WOULD BE MORE PRECISE!" The Masamune answered. "I AM TIRED OF BATTLE MYSELF, BUT I SEEK TO PASS ON MY GREAT KNOWLEDGE TO OTHERS SO THAT THE LEGACY OF ULTIMATE BUSHIDO MAY CONTINUE!"

    Just then, Skullos, Lord of the Edge emerged from the ocean to face Totoma. "You fashion yourself a hero? The weak are anxious for justice and equality!" He beat his chest with his fist. "The strong pay no heed to either. And if I somehow fall in battle this day, I shall face the gods and walk backwards into hell!"
    The nine-toothed rake returned to its bangle form, and Totoma turned to face Skullos. It seems he really did live up to his title 'lord of edge', but in a way that was, uh... metaphorical or whatever. More importantly, it seems like he'd overestimated these three.

    "I do fashion myself a hero," he said, crossing his arms. "This universe is one where the strong do what they will and the weak suffer what they must. I may not be the strongest there is, but I'm sure as hell stronger than you. And what I will is to strike down those would inflict pain and suffering upon those just trying to live their lives in peace!"

    With that, his aura flared, and Totoma shot at Skullos, aiming a vicious kick at the edgelord's stomach.

    "Meal...heh," Lantro smirked. "Hadn't you heard, Mon-star? Concession stand's closed. But a pick-up game isn't out of the question!" Lantro grinned, beginning to power up.

    After all... of all the Oni that had resurfaced this side of Otherworld. Three were dead beyond salvaging, and the last remaining- Nunlil- wasn't pure of heart. Hell, neither was Inanna.

    "Not seeing the Oni requirement being met anytime soon. Hell, I'm technically not even an Oni, anymore." A mix of Demon, Arcosian, and Namekian had seen to that... all thanks to her innate Oni curiosity. With another sigh, the Oni had one final question to ask before leaving and while it was a longshot... it'd worked once before.

    "Would a catalyst circumvent the requirement. More specifically, concentrated Creation."
    ďLampton thinks pure-hearted is more in the beholderís mind, personally.Ē

    He taps his chin again.

    ďA significant dose of Creational energy could circumvent some of the needed requirements, Lampton thinks.Ē

    Shekiíhinah raises a hand.

    ďI would volunteer for the ritual. As her mother, would I qualify?Ē

    Lampton nods.

    ďA significant enough connection, yes. That would work.Ē

    Shekiíhinah looks at Inanna.

    ďEreshkigal would also be willing to volunteer. Myself, Eresh, Nunlil perhaps and maybe...what about your older brother?Ē

    "So tell me where you got the sword, buddy."

    Inanna snaps her fingers, and a bullet manifests between then, and with a smile the golden-eyed woman says. "A bullet of creation, from Sihn's revolver. Got enough?"

    Lampton gingerly floats the bullet over to get a better look at it.

    “Lampton sees it is from a Goddess of Creation herself. Potent. No wonder old Sihn is so dangerous.”

    He glances at Inanna.

    “Possibly. It is a close thing, Lampton thinks. For the ritual it would suffice presuming you got at least three or four other Oni. Mind you the ritual power-up only lasts about ten to fifteen minutes at most before you’ll burn through the power. Though......Lampton could possibly delay the true activation to when you confront Auroc.”

    He floats it back to her.

    “As to naturally getting to that level.....after Auroc is dealt with, after you been exposed to the ritualistic version, Lampton thinks he could possibly train you to that level. Though to be honest....Lampton isn’t sure what you will be once you achieve that level. Not an Oni. Not whatever hybrid you are now. Something......better, Lampton thinks.”

    Praxat gets up and swiftly turns towards Inanna's direction and points at her." Stop that right now, and drop the sword and the officer. That sword is not yours to have, So you can not do with it as you please. The Spirit of that sword's words resonate with me," Praxat said.

    " Its words sparked something inside me. Spirit of this sword, I seek your mentoring in swordsmanship," Praxat said.
