(This one took a while. I wanted to at least get this out there since everything is happening at once.)
Blaze, Reilly, Maya and Sylvie were fighting with all they had. Flames, aura, lasers, and Elven magic were being sent in all directions at the Taranai around them. In the center of the trio, Arashi pulled out the ring and looked down at it.
“Hey, if you’re going to put that on now,” Blaze suddenly spoke up as she kicked one of the Taranai away. “It’s now or never.”
“We’re part of the Azurblades too, y’know,” said Maya to him as she shot at the enemies around them. “We’ve got your back!”
“If I die from this,” said Arashi to them. “It’s been fun.”
“You won’t die,” Reilly assured. “Put it on already! We’re about to be overwhelmed!” He shouted as Lust’s forces surrounded them, slowly closing in.
Arashi closed his eyes and put on the ring of his ancestors. The light from his Regalia began to surge through his veins. In that moment, something happened within. On the outside, it was instant but inside the ring, it felt forever.
What took place within the Ring
Arashi looked around, he was within a space he has never seen nor experienced before. It was dark as a cool light was shining down on him from above. He was surrounded by thirteen thrones, each with their own armored Ruler of Rularis’s past. One of them was empty, which most likely belonged to the current Seraph Guardian, Serena Aeterna.
The former Kings and Queens stood from their thrones. They each pointed their weapons at Arashi, but all of the weapons were familiar. He held each one of them ever since his Regalia evolved. They former rulers spoke to him and as Arashi bargained for their permission.
It seemed lost... until he demanded like his father would before him. He knew the battle couldn’t be won with what they have now, but at the very least. He could buy time.
The late rulers turned to one another then back to the crown prince. They lowered their weapons and kneeled, they conceded.
“Azurblades!” Arashi shouted as he raised his hand with the ring on it and the light that surged through his veins faded. “Those with the fragments of my Regalia, come to me if you can!” He yelled.
A thick, heavy storm surrounded the battlefield. Nothing could be seen past it as Arashi’s Regalia surged once more throughout the field. It resonated within those who he has chosen: Rip, Male Flare, Fubuki, Shade, and the four already near him.
“If you can’t,” Arashi continued. “Take down your target first!”
Hail the Crown Prince of Rularis, Arashi Aeterna
Lust glared at them. “That accursed Ring!” She shouted in anger. She rushed toward them, but Xander flew in and kicked her.
“As if I’ll let you get anywhere near my kids,” Xander clutched his side.
“Damn Prophet,” Lust grit her teeth as she began a brutal assault of slashes at Xander, who countered and parried as best he could.
Blaise tried to support him.
