Sora and Tarble
Tarble had found the window necessary to make it inside and offered his hands to boot her up. Placing her feet in his hands, she was shot up towards the windowsill and pulled herself inside. As she dusted herself off and Tarble joined her, the sound of someone clearing their throat was heard and caught their attention. There a boy stood, his arms crossed as he prepared to talk down to like, addressing them as commoners. Sora narrowed her eyes, her fists pressing onto her hips as her motherly side was prepared to come to the surface and teach this brat a lesson. Tarble was quick to begin speaking, finding an opening that would keep the boy from telling the guard about intruders. He began stating that the boy's father stole the Dragon Ball from them and Sora opened her bag, letting the other one glimmer out of it as apparent proof. The boy didn't really care, but he also didn't care about his father much either. He was going to let them go -- but then he said that he wanted a peep show.
Sora's eyes widened at the sound of it, her hands finding her hips again as she prepared to lay into the kid, until he stated that he meant Tarble
. A blush found Sora's cheeks as she became rendered speechless, but Tarble was quick to move and knock the kid out, causing a sigh to escape the demoness and then brief laughter to follow. "My.. this is really turning into a trip."
Sora began to move towards the door, pressing herself up against it as she began to listen for any signs of people being out there. As she was welcomed with silence, the palm of her hand pressed against the side of the wall and the other against the door itself, slowly propping it open and attempting to make the squeaking as quiet as possible. Golden irises peered out of the room, glancing about as she took notice of a guard leaving the room and traversing a hallway just to the right of them. "C'mon, they have patrol around here, we gotta move fast."
She whispered and made her way out of the room and towards the hall on their left, glancing down it before heading towards the door beside the entryway.
Like before, she listened in at first before pulling the door open, making sure that she wasn't tripping any wire as she made her way inside. The door closed behind them and Sora let out a breath of air, her heart pumping in her chest. "This is right thrill."
She jested, her lips curling into a smile as she held back a soft chuckle. "We should make our way around, check all the rooms to see where it could be locked up at. If it's treasured, it's either being displayed in a room with high security.. or possibly hidden in a safe someplace."
A flush soon found her cheeks then as she shot her gaze to the side with mild embarrassment. "...I watched a lot of shows like this."
Crushing the Past
Don, Rufus, Yamato
Lucifer stated that he respected his courage, but his decision was apparently something of low self worth and was weak cowardice. A frown etched onto the demon's face as he prepared to say something back, but Frank chimed in, causing the demon's eyes to widen a bit. Despite how ill fitting his words may have been, it did make sense ever the same. Yamato wanted freedom, he didn't sign a contract that stated that he'd belong to a Thrall or Lucifer. He signed a contract that clearly stated that he would serve Don, to devote his life in working for him. Nothing about killing for souls or anything of the like. He was tricked, due to Prael and because of that, it just wasn't right
that they expected him to stay in servitude. Yamato felt surprised then as Don spoke up, clearly taking his side, despite the fact that he served Lucifer. Was he technically going against the man as well? Rufus chimed in as well, not willing to let Yamato be taken to the depths of Hell whenever it was deemed necessary by the Demon King.
And so, the world around them began to shake as the ceiling practically burst off and threw into the crimson skies. Lucifer grew in size, large wings spreading out from their place against his back as his arms crossed over his chest. Those red eyes glared down at them, as if they had been mere insects ready to be squashed. A shot of Frank's gun went off, but the bullet bounced right off the demon's chin, no mark in sight nor sign of injury. As Frank cursed, Yamato let out a cry as he powered himself up, that crimson aura flaring to life around him as it flickered in the gushing winds that started to swirl about the room. The crimson demon pushed off the balls of his feet and launched himself into the air, his speed unlike any other as he sped his way up towards Lucifer's face. Blades of air started to spin straight towards him, trying to keep him away, while lasers started to shoot out of what appeared to be ruby spheres hovering in the air around them. Yamato managed to weave past them as he arrived within eyesight of the other demon.
His fist came forward, slamming right towards the bridge of the demon's nose, only for the palm of Lucifer's hand to meet him right in the middle within a split second. Yamato's eyes widened at the speed of the demon, only to be pushed right back. Yamato spun in place in midair before fixing himself and shooting an arm outward, blasts of ki beginning to fly towards him. But they all exploded before they even touched Lucifer himself, causing Yamato to curse at the major difference in power between them. That's when Yamato realized just what he needed to do -- it would be dangerous, but with his friends here to watch out for him, he had a feeling he'd be able to control it enough. Yamato moved in again, his fists slamming into the demon King, but he was easily flicked way as if he had been a mere flea. "Alright, that's it!
Yamato's head was now thrown back, a roar sounding from the back of his throat as his body started to shift within the crimson light around him.
Cracks in his skin started to appear, as if his skin was ready to slip right off his bones within a given second. His eyes had all become pitch black, with two ruby circles within them that began glowing brightly, as if the light within was brighter than any light in existence. That crimson aura shifted, becoming somewhat black and murky, those the red ki ignited around its frame, looking as if they had been black flames on the verge of becoming magma itself. Those canines from within Yamato's mouth had grown longer, two poking out past his lip, no matter how neutral his expression had been and his hands had resorted into claws as he began breathing a bit heavily. It was a sight that Rufus had seen before, one that he feared
, but knowing that it scared Rufus, he hoped to be able to control it better this time around. Those glowing eyes landed on their target as he rushed inward, his body crashing straight into Lucifer, like a meteor colliding into Earth's soil.
Smoke flooded the room from the impact and once it cleared, clear cracks had formed in what appeared to be a sort of barrier that surrounded the demon lord. Yamato slowly rose back up again, his head hanging low as he let out a few panted breaths of air, his fingers twitching inwardly. When he looked back up again, Lucifer had resorted back to the same size as before, now standing on even ground with those he was fighting with. Why, he wasn't sure, but all that mattered now was that hitting him would be a bit easier than before. Yamato darted straight back in again, his claw striking straight down across Lucifer's body and just as the demon dodged out of the way, Yamato pushed himself even further in. His head had reached the barrier from before, his teeth clamping straight down upon it as black electricity began zapping into the crimson demon, as a means to make him let go. Yamato didn't release his grasp, if anything, he tightened his teeth upon it as he heaved out a breath of air, his eyes narrowing into a glare.
With a final push, his teeth completely closed around the barrier, shattering it within mere seconds. Yamato pushed off his feet again, letting out an excited laugh as he swiped his claw straight for Lucifer's throat, who seemed to be dancing around the room in order to avoid the blows now that were coming from different angles. "I didn't think you'd let me take control, Yamato..."
The demon slowly shook his head then, closing his eyes before returning the beast's gaze. "You're apart of me. You are me and I need to accept that. But keep one thing straight, I will not be in the backseat of this."
The demon lowly chuckled at that, something flashing in its left eye. "Yes, we'll... work together for now.."
A duck of the head was given from a blow that came from Lucifer, only for Yamato to dive straight in, his claws hand penetrating right through Lucifer's chest.
Yamato's eyes met with the other demon's in that moment, but it was as if some unspoken words were being passed between them.
