Homunculus Part 2Bookmark here

<Flash Back: before Five's first release of his mana wave>Bookmark here

In another part of the labyrinth, a yellow-haired boy named Lucas and his group were in the middle of fighting a small army of monsters. Lucas's group consisted of Drew, Eldrin, Julz, and Kalen the chubby panda that was last to pass the first test on Zeless. Bookmark here

"Man...all of this hungry!" Kalen panted as he fended off the monsters trying to attack him Bookmark here

"How can you think of eating at a time like this?" Julz asked as she casted multiple ward spells Bookmark here

"I'm sick of all these Goddamn fodders! Where are the strong ones!" Eldrin shouted as he physically held back multiple monsters with his handsBookmark here

"Let's hurry up with these monster and move on to finding our next orb," Lucas said as he sliced through multiple monsters with one slash of his broadsword Bookmark here

"Right! So far we only have one orb, we need to hurry" Drew replied Bookmark here

Lucas's group continued to fight the monsters and in no time they were done with them. The monsters themselves were not so tough but they were a bit of a problem due to them being in a large number. Bookmark here

"If I keep going like this without body is going to give in…" Kalen complained Bookmark here

"Didn't you eat like, ten minutes before our fight earlier?" Drew said looking at Kalen Bookmark here

"Right but my magic requires me to eat, for me to keep going…" Kalen replied in a sluggish tone Bookmark here

"Well then you should have carried more food with you" Julz added on Bookmark here

"I could only carry so much...I wish I knew space magic, then I could store food in a pocket space and eat whenever I want" Kalen whined "I wonder if those monster we killed earlier were edible" Kalen added on as he licked his lips Bookmark here

Before anyone else could say anything, the ground beneath them started to shake, as if an earthquake was happening and the air around them thickened a little. This was caused by the pressure of Five first releasing his mana.Bookmark here

Everyone stopped and looked around trying to figure out what was causing this, as soon as Eldrin sensed my mana wave clash with Fives, he smirked with excitement as he had finally found an interesting opponent. Bookmark here

"Finally!" Eldrin said with a grinBookmark here

Before anyone else could say anything Eldrins entire body lit up in blazing flames before he suddenly ran off towards where he sensed my mana, leaving his team behind. Bookmark here

<Flash Back Over> Bookmark here

Right now Lucas and his group are fighting a homunculus that they stumbled across after Eldrin bolted off. Bookmark here

"I still can't believe that bastard ditched us!" Drew said greeting his teeth Bookmark here

"Yeah...that was so rude of him…" Julz added on disappointed Bookmark here

"You two, focus on the battle, it's going to attack us again," Lucas said holding onto his broad sword with one handBookmark here

"I have enough energy for only one attack before my body gives in…" Kalen panted as sweat ran down his body Bookmark here

"Then let's make it count!" Drew said with a grin Bookmark here

"But it just keeps on won't stay down…" Kalen added on Bookmark here

"Leave that to me, I've figured how to kill it, for good" Lucas said "Drew and Kalen you both attack the homunculus with a high damage spell, Julz when I give the signal trap it in a ward spell that'll restrict its movements," Lucas said giving everyone ordersBookmark here

Everyone nodded and got ready, the homunculus raised its right hand towards the group and fired a beam of fire towards them. Lucas stood in front of the group with his sword held tight in his hand and as the spell came close, Lucas cleaved through it in one go. Kalen mustered up every last bit of his energy before jumping in the air, Kalen raised his right hand in the air. Bookmark here

"Expansion magic: Right Arm of the Giant!" Kalen casted Bookmark here

Kalen's right arm suddenly grew in size and length till it was big enough to dwarf the homunculus under him, Kalen brought down his right hand smashing the homunculus into the ground making a giant crater in the same size and shape as his handprint. The homunculus was still able to move but before it could do anything Kalen grabbed it with his right hand and threw him into the sky. Bookmark here

"Alright, I'm...d-done…" Kalen said before his hand shrunk back to normal size. Bookmark here

Kalen fell to the ground and immediately passed out. "Now it's my turn! Earth Magic: Six Point Piercing Pillars!" Drew shouted as he raised both his hands up towards the Homunculus in the airBookmark here

Six brown magic circles appeared on the ground, underneath the homunculus. One by one sharp pillars of earth ejected out of the ground and pierced the homunculus from every point, holding the homunculus in the air. Bookmark here

"Now for the finishing touch" Drew Smirked Bookmark here

Drew leapt into the air towards the homunculus "Earth Magic: 100 Ton crushing impact!". A giant war hammer made completely out of rocks formed in Drew's hand,Bookmark here

Drew held the war hammer with both hands and once he reached the homunculus pinned by the sharp pillars, he swung his hammer downwards with full force smashing the homunculus back into the ground, creating an even bigger crater than Kalen. Bookmark here

"Julz Now!" Lucas said looking at JulzBookmark here

Julz quickly put both her palms together "Binding Magic: Binding Prism!" Julz enchanted before separating her hands and pointing them towards the homunculus on the ground.Bookmark here

A green magic circle appeared underneath the homunculus and from the magic circle, a prism folded open before closing again and trapping the homunculus within it.Bookmark here

"Whatever your going to do, hurry because I won't be able to hold it in there for long" Julz called out to Luca Bookmark here

"Form 4: St.Zacharias" Lucas mumbled to himself Bookmark here

Lucas's broadsword morphed into a completely new sword. The broad sword was now completely different in both design and shape. Lucas pointed his blade at the homunculus trapped in the prism.Bookmark here

"Vanquish Thy, Foe!...". Two giant white magic circles appeared in front of Lucas's blade, from the magic circle a highly concentrated beam of light fired out of the magic circles and raced towards the homunculus.Bookmark here

The light completely vaporized the land in its tracks, once the light hit the prism, it completely vaporized it then proceeded to strike the homunculus and engulf it.Bookmark here

After a few seconds the light disappeared, there was nothing left but black goo. Lucas's light spell completely vaporizes the homunculus, killing it for good. Bookmark here

"Is that a holy blade?..." Drew said to himself as he looked at LucasBookmark here

"That's enough of that nuisance," Lucas said as his sword morphed back to normal before vanishing Bookmark here

"Finally...I was just ready to give in…" Julz said panting Bookmark here

MeanwhileBookmark here

Alice and her group are still fighting their homunculus and have yet to find a way to put it down for good.Bookmark here

"Why won't this stupid thing stay down for good!" Tai said with frustration Bookmark here

"I'm kinda enjoying myself here, I can cut it down as much as I want without having to worry about it dying quick" Alice giggled as she held her cleaver knife next to her faceBookmark here

"This whole thing is bothersome" Rex sighed Bookmark here

"Definitely" Krow nodded Bookmark here

"I'm so, running out of mana," Catherine said pantingBookmark here

The dust explosion that was caused by previous attacks cleared out and out came the homunculus still intact. The homunculus stood in front of Alice and her group, it stood there motionless just staring at them with its faceless head.Bookmark here

"What now…!" Catherine mumbled to herself looking at the homunculus with a crept out expression Bookmark here

The crystal on the homunculus's head, as well as the two in its hands, slowly disappeared into its body, once the crystals disappeared a larger crystal appeared out of its chest. The crystal shined bright displaying all the colours it's previous crystals displayed.Bookmark here

"This is certainly new," Alice said looking at the crystalBookmark here

"We should most definitely move out the way, of whatever is coming," Tai said with his guard upBookmark here

A blue, red, and yellow magic circle appeared in front of the crystal on the homunculus chest. From the magic circle, a destructive blast of a highly concentrated beam containing Ice, Fire, and Lightning blasted out of the magic.Bookmark here

The beam raced towards Alice and her group at high speed emitting a lot of destructive energy. Everyone quickly jumped out of the way but Catherine was physically too tired to move out of the way, before the beam could strike Catherine, Krow quickly dashed in front of the beam and grabbed Catherine before quickly jumping out of the way, the beam missing him by just an inch.Bookmark here

"You okay Catherine?" Krow asked as he held Catherine safely in his arms, not worried about the fact that the attack could have done some serious damage to himBookmark here

"Thank you for the save...Krow" Catherine said with a smileBookmark here

"No worries, can't let a fellow dorm friend get hurt," Krow replied with a soft smile. "Take a rest, we will handle it from here on out" Krow added onBookmark here

Krow pointed his hand at Catherine, which created a yellow bubble around Catherine, protecting her as well as healing her. "This is one of the only healing spells I know, I hope it helps," Krow added. The bubble floated high into the air with Catherine in it. Bookmark here

"Alright let's move on to the final dish, and we have just the right amount of people to cook it!" Alice smirked as the knives in her hand disappeared "as the leader of this group, I command the three of you to protect me while I get the right utensils to do the final dish" Alice demanded Bookmark here

The homunculus stretched both its arms and whipped them towards Alice, but just before they were about to hit her, Rex appeared in front of Alice and quickly grabbed both of the homunculus arms, stopping them from hitting Alice. Bookmark here

"This plan of yours better work," Rex said before he tightened his grip around the homunculus arm and setting it on fire, both the homunculus arm fell off, but it wasn't bothered by it as it just grew new onesBookmark here

"This final dish of yours, better be one hell of a meal," Tai said as he stood in front of Alice Bookmark here

"Leave it to us," Krow said also standing in front of AliceBookmark here

The three boys charged at the homunculus and kept it busy while Alice could do whatever it is, she was planning. Bookmark here

"Gourmai Utensils No.14: il miscelatore" Alice casted as she placed her hand on the ground. A red magic circle appeared on the ground, and from the ground out came a giant red mixer with a silver bowl.Bookmark here

"Those three are strong, so they should be able to make a killer meal" Alice mumbled to herself. "Alright, boy's preparation is complete!" Alice shouted as she placed her hand on the mixer, which caused it to turn on. Bookmark here

"Your plan was to summon a giant mixer? is that going to help in a battle?" Tai repliedBookmark here

"Well since none of us are emotionally in sync and we can't get our mana in sync, this mixer right here will help us use a synchronized spell without actually being in sync with each other" Alice explained "the three of you fall back and strike the mixer with a high-level spell, I'll keep the homunculus busy while you three do that" Alice continued to explain Bookmark here

"And why didn't you think of this earlier?" Krow asked Bookmark here

"Because I was having fun cutting up the homunculus of course" Alice replied with an obvious look Bookmark here

"I hope I'm never teamed up with her again" Tai mumbled to himselfBookmark here

"Alright enough talk, let's switch!" Alice shoutedBookmark here

The three boys jumped back while Alice charged the homunculus by herself, wielding a giant kitchen knife. Bookmark here

"Well I'll go first," Tai saidBookmark here

Tai raised his right hand up, aiming it at the mixer, a green and yellow magic circle appeared in front of Tai's right hand, from the magic circle a wind like a drill imbued with lightning, shot out of the magic circle, revolving at very high speed and struck the mixer with full force. Once the spell hit the mixer, the mixer immediately absorbed it into the bowl and started mixingBookmark here

"I'll go next," Krow said as he stood in front of the mixer Bookmark here

"Dark Magic: Black Crow descend" Krow raised his hand in the air, creating a black magic circle above the mixer. Krow dropped his hand down and from the black magic circle came a giant beastly crow made completely out of magic. The Krow struck the mixer and just like before the Mixer immediately absorbed the spell and continued to mix it with Tai's spell Bookmark here

"Acid Magic: Melting Canon" Rex raised his hand towards the Mixer, a purple magic circle appeared in front of Rex's hand. From the magic circle, a big ball of acid shot out of it like a cannonball, the ball of acid hit the mixer, and once it did the mixer once again immediately absorbed it and mixed it with the other two spells. Bookmark here

"Alright, you guys are done!" Alice said before she smacked the homunculus with a giant spatula, sending it flying across the labyrinth. Bookmark here

Alice quickly made her way back to the mixer and stood there waiting for it to finish mixing the three spells together. A couple of minutes passed and the mixer was finally done but the homunculus was back, and ready to strike again.Bookmark here

Before the homunculus could cast one of its spells towards Alice and her group, green chains sprung out of the ground underneath it and restricted its movements as well as forcing its hand and head towards the sky, making sure none of its attack can be fired at them.Bookmark here

"I'll hold it down, whatever you're planning you best do it now!" Catherine shouted from within the bubbleBookmark here

The mixer vanished leaving only the bowl behind "enjoy the meal!" Alice grinned before she kicked the bowl making it fall facing the homunculus. Bookmark here

A gigantic magic circle appeared in front of the bowl and from the magic circle a giant blast containing Tai, Krow, and Rex's spell blasted out, in the form of a single synchronized spellBookmark here

The spell struck the homunculus completely devouring it and obliterating everything else in its way. After a few seconds, the blast vanished and the homunculus was nowhere to be seen, it had been vaporized by the synchronized spell. Bookmark here

"I guess it won't be having dessert" Alice giggled Bookmark here

"Color me impressed, that was amazing," Tai said with a smile Bookmark here

"Yes it truly was" Krow nodded Bookmark here

"So that's what the Gourmai Clan is capable of," Rex said Bookmark here

"So amazing!.." Catherine said to herself looking at Alice and the othersBookmark here
