"WHITE LOTUS!!!" Sally casted
Ezra pulled out his Katana and imbued it with his Violet Lightning. Leviathan could barely dodge the sword leaving him with a scar.
("The ritual is almost over, I need to kill this two before it took place.")
Ezra and Sally attacked Leviathan from side by side, Leviathan jumped and dodged their attacks. He kicked the two's faces while mid-air and landed.
"You two did well on facing me head on, but I know you guys are at your limit very soon." Leviathan spoked
("Just one more 'White Lotus' my bones will break into pieces, we need to end this quick.") Sally on her mind
"Its quite impressive 7th Seraph, you managed to build a strong High Class Array around here preventing me from fleeing." Leviathan speaked while clapping.
Sally charged with an incredible speed and let out a very strong kick, but Leviathan catched Sally's legs and wreck her down. Being pinned down, Sally twisted her legs and used her right leg to kick once again. Leviathan backed off, with Ezra's speed he managed to sneak up behind Leviathan and let out a Lightning Flash while slashing him down.
Leviathan received a wound on his back but it eventually healed up.
"I'm done playing around with you, my turn then."
Sally jumped from high-up aiming to Leviathan with a flying kick, Leviathan on a incredible speed, appeared in Sally's back mid-air, with an immense mana cultivation, he kicked her down.
Leviathan's aura became more and more intimidating.
"I'll just have to kill you two then I can proceed freely, Father will be very proud of me."
Sally still managed to stand up but Leviathan dashed towards her and slapped Sally mouth with a 'Mana Locking Spell'. Sally couldn't stand up anymore nor can use her own mana against him.
Ezra neared Sally and assisted her.
"I'll u-use m-my—"
"You know if you use your White Lotus once more, you'll die."
"It's okay, it's my turn now...
...live a long life, Sally."
"No! Ezra n—"
Ezra let out a smile on Sally, he casted a teleporting spell sending Sally away from the spot and concealing her mana away.
Ezra stand up and looked upon Leviathan.
"Hmmm?? You send her away, how lame was that, HAHAHAHAHAHA!!"
Ezra get on her katana pose and closed his eyes. Huge mana started to flow inside his body, even Leviathan is so shocked upon the sudden change of his nature.
"If I'm going to die...you'll die with me!"
Violet Lightning started to flow not only on Ezra's Katana but all over his body. Ezra started to do the chant—
"Thy who rules the sky, thy who successfully flashed upon the never ending Horizons, heed my call for the very last time...
Huge amount of Lightning Flashes came out from her sword and body imitating a very Supreme mana cultivation. The wind became more stronger and stronger as if everything's being slapped by a typhoon.
"I just want you to know...YOU ARE STRONGEST LIGHTING USER I'VE EVER FOUGHT!!!"
"I see, then prepare yourself."
Leviathan imbued his hands with immense amount of mana.
"COME!!!! EMPEROR OF LIGHTNINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Ezra opened his eyes and with his one step he managed to let out a very intimidating amount of Lightning. Just like the thunder in the middle of the storm, his speed became very impressive. At once they attacked each other like soaring dragons.
After a very intense duel, the two ended up striking each other. Leviathan managed to punch a hole in Ezra's stomach and Ezra—inflicted a huge amount of damage in Leviathan's Left part limbs.
Leviathan's skin was mostly fried making it really hard to heal even with massive Healing mana it will take almost days to completely recover. Left torso of Leviathan were all crushed, his arms are removed, his fleshs are all burned and mostly of his lungs is incinerated.
After all of the damage he's still moving and barely alive, very enraged, he proceeded to the last desination: The Tree Of Erebus
Ezra sacrificed his life just to stop him, now...its Minoru and the others' turn.
—Tree Of Erebus | Last Resort
Ashley started to feel the huge mana coming towards them, she yelled to warn the others about what's coming.
Leviathan very enraged reveals himself, using Ezra's Katana who almost killed him earlier, he attacked Nehl precisely. Nehl managed to block the weakend Leviathan's attack with his reaction speed. Upon seeing what's happening, Minoru and the others knew there's no much time.
Heva yelled on an intrigued voice.
I casted my Enhancement A skill on my lower body and used the tree itself to launch myself up. I taken off my glasses once more and the Death Points Started to come out, the strongest death point of the tree is in the higher altitude, that's where i need to decapitate this crap.
Leviathan yelled in a joyous voice
"JUST A LITTLE MORE WHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!"
Suddenly, we felt the ground's shaking, the Tree trunks opened up in a very large scale. The roots started to form a very huge arc as if its a gateway to something.
The Tree's Trunks opened on my foot, no where to climb, I fell in a very high altitude. Heva managed to catch me and bring me down.
"Nehl and Ashley's trying to stop Leviathan for now, what's your plan? How can we decapitate it?"
"The most effective point to cut it is in the middle, mostly 550m above the roots, I can only use my Enhancement Spell just one more time."
"I'll help you then! Lets go!!!"
Nehl and Ashley's trying to distract Leviathan as long as they could. Nehl used his bow to shot Leviathan in the distance and Ashley used the spells she learned on the tome to stop Leviathan's movements.
"Your Angels won't save you!!"
Leviathan can only use his right arms to combat them the two can see they're in a huge advantage. Leviathan rushed to Nehl and Ashley's direction and swinged the katana he's wielding.
"Why do you even wanted to incinerate the whole humanity? What will you even get???" Nehl asked in a loud voice
"We...WE ARE THE SUPREME BEINGS MOLDED BY GOD!!!!! RAAAAAAAH!!!!" Leviathan answered
"BULLSHIT!! Look how much you've fallen!!!" Ashley shouted
"YOU'RE JUST MEAR HUMAN KIDS!!! DON'T ACT TOO HIGH!!!!"
Tree roots started to grow from Leviathan's left arm substituting his left arms.
"NOW LETS FIGHT!! GAAAAAH!!!"
Leviathan extended his left arm to Nehl, Tree roots started to sprout from it attacking Nehl. Nehl draw his bow and cultivated the mana to Materialize a Sharp Sword. He slashed and slashed and slashed the roots but didn't run out, the roots pinned Nehl to the Tree of Erebus'.
("I CAN'T MOVE!!!")
"THE FACT THAT YOU ARE THE HANDLER OF THE ANGEL URIEL IN YOUR AGE IS QUITE IMPRESSIVE, YOU MANAGE TO WOUND ME VERY WELL. NOW IF I ABSORB YOU, THEN I CAN HAVE THE POWER I WANTED FOR A VERY LONG TIME NOW! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAA."
"That will never going to happen!!!"
Nehl spitted blood on Leviathan's Face.
"I WILL KILL YOU KID!!!!"
The roots binding Nehl Became more tight and tight. Nehl started to puke blood.
"I-I wont let Nehl die!!!! RAGUEL! JUST THIS TIME!"
A voice echoed upon Ashley's head.
[???]: "I accept thy resolve, I'll be here."
Nehl spoked to Leviathan on a teasing smils.
"You're forgetting someone! Idiot! (cough)"
"SPEAR OF LONGINUS!!!!!!!!"
A red tinted glass like spear appeared in Ashley's hands and smacked Leviathan away sending him flying almost 80meters from the spot.
"Nehl! You alright?"
"Yeah, I'm good! How did you pull out your Angel?!"
"I didn't know either but I know—Raguel is watching me."
They walked to Leviathan's not moving body from the distance.
"Something feels odd."
Ashley pulled the body and discovered its just a crap full of roots. They glanced back and see Leviathan climbing the tree to Minoru's Direction!
"MINORU!!!! HEVA!!!! WATCH OUT!!!"
"YOU'RE TRYING TO CUT THE TREE DIDN'T YOU? LUMBERJACK RAMIEL!!!!!!!"
Minoru and Heva flinched for a second, Leviathan jumped towards Minoru and Heva like a hungry lion ready to eat their prey. Heva pulled out her Blood Scythe and smacked it to the tree making it a Stepping ground for Minoru.
"Minoru!!! It's on you now!!!!!!!!"
I casted my Enhancement A spell once more to launch myself up, if I fail...nothing awaits us but death. I used Heva's Weapon as a Launching Stick and jumped high, Levithan kicked Heva off the tree making her fall from a very high altitude.
Ashley catched Heva with her spell, its not a pleasant landing but she managed to save Heva from sure death.
I used the tree to launch myself up even higher.
"JUST A LITTLE MORE!!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHH!!!"
"I WON'T LET YOU!!!!" Leviathan while chasing ms shouted
Just a little more jump and I'll be able to reach the point. But with my last step my foot fractured causing me to stop mid air. I fell towards Leviathan, he's ready to kill me in just seconds.
Nehl used his Materializing Spell to create many Spear Copies and struck it to the tree's trunk to launch his self up. With his strength and the assistance of his Enhancement Spell, he managed to reach Leviathan and kicked him away while focused on me.
"NEVER LOOK AWAY FROM YOUR OPPONENT!!!!" (kick)
Nehl flipped his body with the spear and posed upside down. I landed on his feet.
"ENHANCEMENT!!!!! MINORU, IT'S ALL ON YOU NOW!!!!
Using his legs imbued with Enhancement B spell he launched me upwards. Upon launching me upwards, bones on Nehl's right leg got fractured causing immense pain.
I pulled my sword and Imbued all my Mana to cultivate my Blue Fire to my sword.
But unfortunately, while mid-air I passed out. All my mana was drained out of my body. My nose starts to bleed severely and my eyes blurred and sticked up.
"Is this how it feels to die?"
I suddenly found myself in a very vast sea of grass.
I saw three people on the grass having a picnic. A person called my name and asked me to sit down, I get a better view of their faces...
...they're my family.
"Minoru, you faught well enough...You can now rest with us." Dad spoked with a smile
"Brother!!! Have a taste of Mom's homemade sandwiches, it's so tasty!" My Sister said.
"It's been a long day son, sit with us and relax!" Mom said.
I can't hold back my tears anymore and cried infront of them.
"I'm sorry Mom, Dad, Sister...
...Let's have a pic nic together next time.
Upon saying that my family dissappeared from my eyes.
[???]: "Are you sure?"
I glanced back and saw my self standing behind. We're really identical from bottom to top.
"Hmm (smile) I'm not."
[???]: "You really sure you don't want to be with them?"
"I want it...I want it badly, but not for now..."
"I will never leave them!"
[???]: "Leave who?"
"Don't play dumb, Ramiel. I know you're watching."
[Ramiel]: "So you knew huh..."
"Please, help me, I'm begging you!""
[Ramiel]: "Know your place, a Fake, a Vessel!"
"I may be a fake, but no one said a fake can't rival the real thing!"
[Ramiel]: "You're not worthy of my power!"
Ramiel turned away from me.
"I WILL DO EVERYTHING JUST TO SAVE THEM ALL!!! EVEN IF I GIVE MY LIFE IN RETURN!!! THIS REQUEST IS NOT FOR ME, BUT FOR THEM!!"
Ramiel fell silent for a second after I said those things.
[Ramiel]: "I will lend you my power just this once, but...there is a huge chance that your body wont be able to keep up, for short...there will be a huge chance that you'll d—"
"I'll do it!!!"
[Ramiel]: "(sigh) Very well, then I'll lend you the Power of the Sword forged by the gods.
Ramiel dissapeared from where he's standing and reappeared behind me, he given me a small push forward and said...
[Ramiel]: "Then, Go."
Upon his push, my senses came back.
Minoru opened his eyes and it turned into golden jewel-like eyes. The 'Death Points' that his eyes see turned into a Huge RED Line in the Tree's Center.
"I can see it well now."
"YOU'RE NOT GETTING AWAY!"
[Ramiel (Flashback)]: "Say this words—
On Minoru's mind he recalled what Ramiel ordered him to say.
(Along with Ramiel's Echoing voice)
"THE LIGHT WHO SHINES TO THE ENDS OF THE WORLD..."
A yellow blazing sword rose from Minoru's Hands.
"THE SWORD WHO EMITS THE TOWER OF GODS!!!"
The blazing sword started to shine so bright blinding Leviathan mid'air
"HONOR THY NAME!!!!!!!"
"WHAT IS THAT!!! AAAAAAHHHHHH!!!" Leviathan shouted
"NO WAIT!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!"
Levithan was catched up by the Excalibur's Light and desolved left nothing but ashes in his body. Minoru swinged the sword on the Tree Of Erebus' Magic Circuits and cutted it in Half In Just One Swing.
One swing of Excalibur emitted 8 equivalent slashes simultaneously in the tree making it surely due in one single blow,
"The—The Tree is Decapitated!!!!!!" Nehl shouted while being assisted by Ashley.
"LETS GET OUT OF HERE!!! THE TREE'S ABOUT TO COLLAPSE!!!" Ashley yelled.
"Go on you two!!! I'll get Mark!!!" Heva said
Upon cutting the Tree of Erebus, the Holy Sword Excalibur dissapeared from Minoru's Hands and Minoru's consciousness slowly faded.
"Mom, Dad, Sister...we'll be having our pic nic soon (smile)."
Heva catched Minoru and run away to a safe spot, after a while the tree made its impact, a huge bang was heard all over the place. Heva run and runned while carrying Minoru's body.
Minoru spoked on a exaggerated voice.
"Heva, you should've left me there."
"NO WAY I'LL DO THAT!! (jumps)"
Heva managed to dodge all the projectiles from the impact. Due to fatigue, Heva dropped on a Flower Field.
"I can't move my legs anymore!!"
Heva crawled to where he dropped Minoru.
"Minoru!!! Please, hold your self together!"
The sun started to rise from the east, Minoru's eyes started close slowly.
"I never thought...
...I'll see the sun before I die."
"No! Minoru! Don't sleep! MINORU!!! MINORU ALBREICHT!!!!"
Military Air Ships arrived too late and witnessed the aftermath of the battle.
[Gab]: "So they managed to decapitate the Tree Of Erebus, we arrived to late. "
Gab signed of the cross infront of the air ship's window.
"Sir, a report!"
[Gab]: "Go ahead!"
"We detected four life signatures!"
"Lands to the nearest one, rescue who's still alive, and investigate the area!"
Upon the airship's arrival, Minoru's eyes closed as the sun rises.
