Flames: First Fight

by teghan62

Untitled Document I was sleeping peacefully on my bed, twisting and turning in time to Ruby's soft feet padding around on the floor. Ruby, my red Anubis, started whining and scratching at the door. She stepped to the side, and the door burst open. There sat a speckled grass Aisha, one of a kind.

     "Jade," she shook me awake. She noticed that she wasn't getting a reaction from me, so she shook harder and started screaming. "JADE!"

     "Unk…" I groaned, rolling out of bed. I looked up to see the panicked Aisha. "Oh, hi Dot. What's up?"

     "Jade," Dot calmly said, "Where's Mira?"

     "In Tyrannia. She lives there. You should know that," I told the speckled Aisha.

     "Well," she said, "I won't tell you what's wrong until she gets here! So get her!"

     You see, J.C. had given us two cell-phones, one for each of us. I called up Mira, and reluctantly, she agreed to come. Finally, I saw her out of the window. I opened the window, and she flew in. "What is it?" she demanded.

     "Okay," Dot began calmly, but then broke into a hysterical fit, "THE PANT DEVIL STOLE MY GREEN SHORT HAIRBRUSH! YOU HAVE TO GET IT BACK!"

     Mira and I blinked at each other. "So, you woke us up, in the middle of a night, because of a GREEN SHORT HAIRBRUSH? You turkey brain! You could go get another one for only 50 NP! Is that so hard?" I asked.

     "But," she started, "It's my special brush."

     Mira sighed. "Okay, okay, we'll get it…"

     "Thank you so much! Bye!" Dot turned and left. "Let me know when you get it back, and get it back!"

     I turned and looked at Mira. "Back to bed?"

     She nodded in agreement. "Back to bed."

     The next morning, we went to the Battledome. We found the Pant Devil wandering around the Battledome. Mira looked at me, and said, "I've got a plan. Let's do it this time."

     "Ya, what is it?" I asked, not intending to follow it at all.

     "Okay, I'll go around and tap him on the shoulder, and start talking to him. Then you grab him with your ear stalks. Got it?" she told me.

     "Fine… whatever."

     Mira grinned at my 'approval' genius plan, and rushed off to the Pant Devil. She casually tapped his shoulder. "Pant Devil," she asked, "I was wondering, how can you steal items so perfectly?"

     "Ah, well…" the Pant Devil beamed, and rambled on and on about his 'greatness.'

     I smiled to myself. Her plan actually worked, well, at least so far. I took a deep breath, and stretched out my ear stalks. Well, it worked. They wrapped around the Pant Devil, and he came straight back at me. I jumped out of the way, and he stopped flying back.

     With my ear stalks still around him, the Pant Devil tried to get away, but ended up choking himself, so he stopped. Mira ran up to me. "We're in the actual arena! That means this counts as a real fight!"

     "What?!" I asked. "But… it's a one-against-one thing…" my voice trailed off.

     "I know," she grimly told me. "I can't fight. You have to beat him. By yourself."

     I gulped. By then, the Pant Devil had freed himself. "Haha!" He shouted, and pulled out a desert dagger. He threw it at me, and nicked my paw. I cried out in pain.

     "Ow!" I said, after the eighth time he hurt me. I finally snapped out of it and whacked him straight in the face with one of my jade-ears. That was his turn to cry out in pain.

     So, I kept on whacking him, but it wasn't even doing nay damage with his hp! When he dragged me down to only have 1 hit point left, I go so mad. When he threw the dagger at me, I grabbed it with a silver-flamed paw and snapped it in half. Grinning maliciously, I leapt and kicked him. He slammed down against the floor.

     There was my big chance. I grabbed him, and threw him across the arena. He slammed right into the wall, and his hp went down to 15. Finally, I thought. I leaped and jumped on him. He grabbed me and threw me, but I bent down my ear stalks on the floor and caught myself just in time.

     Finally, I delivered the final blow. I grabbed the Pant Devil by the arm, and spun around. He got so dizzy and confused that he hit himself until he had 1 hit point left. I dropped him, took out a mallet and whacked him really hard. He groaned and fainted. I had won.

     When the Pant Devil recovered, he was pretty angry. "Okay, what do you want back?" he snapped.

     "Dot's green short hair brush," replied Mira. He grumbled and gave it to her.

     "Turkey head!" I called after him. He grumbled and ran away from me as fast as he could.

     Just then, Dot walked up to us. "Thanks!" the speckled grass Aisha thanked us. She took it, and ran off. Mira and I looked at each other and blinked.

     "Turkey head," I rolled my eyes. Mira just laughed.
