Plot : This Sora girl that Ryuuga was taking care of turned out to be the villain's former subordinate. She was hiding in Fortuna Island and she was found by her former Ally, Yue Beatrix, who was ordered to execute her. After a intense battle, Sora wins and Yue flees, vowing to come back and destroy her for good. She also says that no matter how much she tries to hide the truth from her friends, eventually they'll find out. And Ryuuga lives in a house by the Fortuna Woods instead of the dorms. This is what happens afterwards.
Yue's words where still echoing in the Sora's head.
"You can't deny who you are. When your true identity is discovered, what will your friends think of you? In the end, you're as bad as the rest of us!"
She arrived at his front door. Her former ally's words never leaving her head. She was frozen on the spot. "Is it really OK to let things like this?" She thought. "Is it really ok…to not tell him anything?" Her trail of thoughts was interrupted by his voice from inside the house." So none of you saw her? Ok, thanks Yu."
Inside, Ryuuga talking to Yumi and Jin through his PC asking any of his friends if they've seen Sora. He cut the connection and put the PC on the table.
"Screw this shit, I'll look for her myself." He then opened the door and saw Sora standing right there. "Oh… Hey." He said awkwardly. " Hey…" She muttered.
"You gonna stand there all night or are you going to come in?" He asked. She promptly came in.
"Where were you?" He asked. He then noticed her clothes where dirty and she had wounds all over her body. "What happened to you?" He asked, concerned. " I…I was flying….and I hit a tree." She answered. He noticed her voice was hesitating.
"You're always like this.*sigh* Wait here. I'll get something to take care of those wounds and prepare you a bath. Oh, and Sora…"
He flicked her forehead. "Don't do this again." She put her hands on her forehead around the spot where he hit her. "W...what?" she thought, dazed at what he just said. "We were worried sick about you. I asked Jin and Yumi to keep and eye for you and they couldn't find you. You left us really worried here." Sora lowered her head. "Sorry…" Sora said weakly.
"I know there's something bothering you. We don't know how your life was back at Ciela, and I don't wanna put any pressure on you, but just remember: Yumi, Jin, and Me, we're all here to support you." He said before going to his room. Her eyes widened at hearing this. It was true, wasn't it? They barely knew anything about her and still, they treated her as part of their Nakama. Then, tears started to form in her eyes.
Ryuuga was sitting on the floor searching his medical aid kit for something that'd treat her wounds. He felt something hold him from behind. He turned his head to see Sora grabbing his shoulders and resting her head on his back. "Uh… what's wrong So…" he heard sobbing."…ra?" Then he noticed: She was crying. He didn't say anything. He just hugged her and let her cry her heart out.
"It's ok…just let it out…" He whispered before he started to caress her head.
Later that night…
Sora was watching Ryuuga sleeping in his bed with a sad expression on her face. I'm sorry…I have to leave you like this… She whispered. But I love you too much to let you get caught up in all of this… . She leaned forward until her face was close to his. Thanks…for everything you did for me…
When I settle this…I promise I'll come back to you… Was all she said before kissing the boy's lips. She then left a note on his drawer and left the house. Once outside, Sora took flight to Celia.
Sora was flying through the skies, thinking if she was doing the right thing leaving Ryuuga and her friends like this. Then a purple energy sphere hit her and she plummeted to the ground. She slowly got up to see Yue back and she had reinforcements. Two of Sora's former allies, Tsukasa and Carol.
"You can't escape this time."
Ryuuga was sleeping soundly, but someone was shaking him rather frantically. He opened one eye to see Yumi and Jin standing there. "What…" He said grumpy as he put on his glasses. "Read this." Yumi said handing him a note. "What's this?" He asked.
"This was on your drawer. We came here to see if Sora was ok but we couldn't find her." Yumi said as Ryuuga read the note.
I'm really sorry I had to leave you guys like this…but I'm caught up in something that I can't let you get involved. I really enjoyed being with you guys. Especially you, Ryuuga. I'm really glad I met all of you. I was…really happy. Once I make things right, I'll come back…But if I don't…I just want to say that…this time I spent with you…was the best thing that ever happened to me…
I'll never forget you guys…
In the mix of anger and sadness that were Ryuuga's current emotional state, he noticed there were stains all over the note. Presumably from tears. Ryuuga them seemed to think for a moment. He then hastily got up. "Where are you going!?" Jin shouted. "Where else!? I'm gonna look for that idiot!" Ryuuga said angrily as he put his black longcoat on. "We'll go with you!" Yumi said. "No. You guys stay here in case she comes back." Ryuuga said running to the door. Jin and Yumi chased after him. By the time the got outside, Ryuuga already took flight to chase Sora. "WAIT!" Yumi called. But he already was gone.
Sora was fallen on the ground, heavily injured. As strong as she was, she couldn't defeat the three of them. Tsukasa had her foot pressed against the fallen Celeste's back. "Not looking so though now, are you, Commander?". Sora tried to get up, only to get instantly kicked away by Tsukasa. "You've really mellowed out in this time you spent her…But that doesn't matter. It's to finish this!" Tsukasa said, raising her sword. preparing to end Sora's life. "Now…DIE!"
Sora waited for the final blow. But it never came. All she heard was the noise of metal clashing. She opened her eyes and saw him. Right there. The silver-haired boy who she cared about so much. Ryuuga came to her aid and he was blocking Tsukasa's blade.
"R-ryu...ga?" Sora whispered, surprised
"W..who is that?"
"YOU FOOL! GET OUT OF THERE TSUKASA!" Yue screamed. But she was too late. With a swift motion, Ryuuga swiped his hand at Tsukasa's throat, slitting it open, blood spraying out of it.
Sora looked at the wounds on the dead Celeste's neck. They looked like claw marks.
"Next." He said, resting his sword on his shoulder.
She was overwhelmed with joy. He came to her rescue and all she could feel was happiness. A tear started to form in her eyes. But she remembered he wasn't supposed to be there and shook her head.
"YOU IDIOT! WHY DID YOU COME!? YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE COME HERE! YOU CAN'T WIN AGAINST THE TWO OF TH- " She shouted, but was cut mid-sentence by a headbutt. She groaned in pain. "WHAT WAS THAT FOR!?" She shouted, rubbing the spot where he hit her.
"I told you not to do it again." He answered calmly. " Don't you ever wo-" He was about to finish when Carol shot a magic bullet in his direction. He easily deflected it with a swat of his wing. "Hey, that was impolite. I was talking to Sora." He said." Well, your punishment will have to be postponed to after I take care of those two bitches." He told Sora. "So you be a good girl and stay there until I'm done with them."
"But you-" She was about to say something when he turned his head to her." Just watch. Trust me. I'll be fine." She noticed his eyes weren't the regular blue ones he had. They were now blood red and his pupils were slitted like a reptile's.
She simply nodded positively
"I never…saw him like this…" she thought.."
Now then… which one of you would like to be next?" He asked tauntingly at the Celeste duo. He looked at Carol. " Since you seemed eager to have a go, I'll start with you." He said calmly before vanishing. Carol began to look around frantically.
"Where is he? SHOW YOURSELF!" She demanded.
He reappeared right in front of her and elbowed her away. Ryuuga followed by attacking Carol with a barrage of kicks and finished it by kicking the winged redhead into the air. Before she could react, he vanished and reappeared behind her again and heel-kicked her to the ground.
He quickly landed on the floor and caught Carol with his right fist before she landed. The impact on her stomach caused her to puke.
"Draco Ars Magi…" He chanted, lightning beginning to form on his right hand.
"Shiroraishou!" He shouted as white lightning shot out of his fists and pierced Carol's body.
He then tossed the dying Celeste aside. Yue watched horrified her comrades getting killed, one by one.
Ryuuga then turned his head to Yue, glaring at her.
"I didn't have mercy to them, and I'll be having less on you." He said menacingly.
"What…is this…monster!?" She thought. "YOU... YOU WILL PAY FOR THIS!" She snarled. They then rushed at each other with the intent to kill each other. Yue furiously attacked Ryuuga with her spear. The silver-haired teen blocked every attack with his sword. He parried Luna's spear and punched her away. She recovered instantly and dashed after him again. They were exchanging blows at an impressive speed.
But Ryuuga got careless and slipped for one moment.
He got slashed in the chest by Yue's spear. She followed by kicking him away. "destructiva lux sagittia magicae" She chanted, summoning multiple spheres of light that chased Ryuuga as he was recovering from the kick. The spheres hit him, knocking him down.
"That... should take care of that…" She said. "Now to finish what I started." She finished, pointing her open palm at Sora. "That's it?" Said the silver-haired male. Yue widened her eyes and turned her head to the boy.
"I must say… this is a bigger challenge that those previous wimps." He taunted dusting himself off clothes.
"You…" Yue growled. She then started to chuckle.
"What's so funny?" He asked.
"I believe it's time to stop playing around." She answered.
"You won't be acting all confident after this…" Yue raised her arms and started to float. An aura of light surrounded her. Moments later, the Black-haired celeste was fully covered in light. "RUN!" Sora shouted. "What? Why?" He asked back. "YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO BEAT HER NOW! ONCE SHE 'S USED THAT THERE'S NO CHANCE TO BEAT HER ANYMORE!" She warned desperately.
"It's too late now…" Said Yue. The light dissipated, revealing the Celeste's new form. Her formely white wings turned black and were now four. Her spear turned into a scythe with a Black wing-shaped blade and a purple rod. Her white robes became black.
"Angel Awakening- Soul Reaping Angel"
"!" Ryuuga sensed the change in her power and got into battle stance.
"Now, DIE!" Yue charged at Ryuuga faster than he could see her, catching him off-guard. She was attacking him mercilessly. He couldn't manage to keep up with this new powered form. She slashed him multiple times before smacking him away. He fell to his knees, wounds all over his body. He started to cough up blood. "Shit…that bitch is tough…" He thought. "That might be the first time my life was in such danger…" . Yue laughed.
" YOU HAD ENOUGH YET YOU THRASH!?" She asked mockingly. " HOW DOES IT FEEL LIKE, HUH!? HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE THIS CLOSE TO DEATH, YOU INSIGNIFICANT BUG!?"
" Kuhuhu…." He laughed as he got up.
Ryuuga gave a psychotic smile.
"HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!" Ryuuga laughed manically.
"PERFECT! THIS IS JUST WHAT I NEEDED! THIS IS THE BEST BATTLE I'VE HAD IN A LONG TIME!"
"That guy has definitely gone batshit insane." Yue muttered. Sora saw her companion wounded and in that state… and she started to cry.
"RYUUGA PLEASE! STOP THIS! I TOLD YOU! YOU CAN'T WIN AGAINST YUE!"
Ryuuga sighed in annoyance.
"And I told you to trust me and watch. That bitch isn't the only one with a ace up her sleeve."
"Just watch…" He said as he grabbed his sword.
He carved his sword on the ground. Moments later, a Magic Seal formed underneath him. He started chanting. "Great Dragon God, lend me your strength." Suddenly, energy chains appeared around him.
"Sigillum Magicae - Draco Animam Dimittere"
As he chanted the spell, the chains broke. Afterwards, he was engulfed in mana. He roared as he released his true power. The mana engulfing him exploded, revealing his new form. Black marks covered a good portion of his body. His longcoat was gone, His legs and arms were covered in black scales. His fingers now had claw-like extensions. His wounds were gone.
Sora watched in awe her friend's new form
"Let's get started, Yue." She glared at him. "I'll finish this in a blink of an eye."
The true battle was about to begin.
