This was the notification that Engel recieved sunday morning when he was looking for Adrian.
Now, we’re going to move onto the third week of the 1 on 1. To Engel’s second match. He was in the F group.
He had already overwhilmingly defeated another participant, and now he was facing Brookelle.
“I never thought I’d face Master Engel this soon.” Said Brookelle. They both were now in the arena. They had full house because of Engel fighting.
Needless to say, it was being broadcasted in the whole world.
“From the instant you saw the group you were, you knew this was unavoidable.” Replied Engel in his serious modo. Nrookelle was too in a serious mood.
“We both knew, Master Engel.” She added.
The academy system’s mechanical voice sounded and the match started.
“Yotse Skill – [Antimagic Slayer]!!” Shouted Brookelle.
In that very moment, Engel was alrealy in fron of her, but she didn’t flinched and released her skill. A grat shockwave was created and Engel’s attack was repeled.
He had [Phobos] and [Demos] in his hands. A.k.a. Seara and Avalon twin shortswords.
(FUUUUUCK That was close! He sure is fast…. If I hadn’t seen it coming, I wouldn’t have made it in time….) Thought Brookelle.
There, She released the bandages in her right hand.
Then, a technological-like tatoo with bright red color could be seen from the tips of her fingers to her shoulder.
“Now I see… It’s the Imagine Bre-”
“DON’T SAY IIIITT!!!!!”
All the audience could hear Lene’s complaint. from the seats
(Going super easy on her will be troublesome because her two abilities…. Do I go seriously?) Asked himself Engel.
Then Brookelle closed in distance and started to attack Engel barehanded. She used her right hand simmilar to a blade and tried to pierce Engel’s heart and head.
He easely avoided her attacks but more and more she was closing in.
(If I get piercced by that my HP will drop considerably… What a bother are her [Foresight Eyes]…..) Thought Engel.
As he had pointed, Brookelle’s two aces were her [Yotse Skill] and her [Demonic Eyes].
(I should get a little serious then…) Said Engel as he let out a half-smile.
Then as Brookelle closed in-
She suddenly lost her balance. Engel used that opening and held her arm and broke it with his knee. Then he kicked her gut and sent her flying.
With that, she ended in the edge of the arena. She was stopped by the barrier made to contain the fight.
Then as fast as a lightning, a black trail was seen hitting her torso.
It was [Demos] piercing her heart.
Shouted the system.
Cires of victory and loud cheers could be heard.
“It is unfair! Why did you used [Gravity Magic]?” Exclaimed Brookelle after the match.
Because they were using [Avatars] to fight, all the damage they recieved was null.
“Sorry, sorry.” Said Engel while being comically hit by Brookelle.
“But look at it this way; You were enough of a threat that he would use his magic to win.” Said Lene, who was with them.
“We-Well… If you put it like tha-that… Ehehehe….” She said while laughing like Leslie.
“Even so, where did you leaned such martial arts? It was enough for me to think there was no way out.” Said Engel.
“Well, all my life I’ve been practicing [Martial Arts] since I was little. I learned Kenpo, Tai-Chi, Ba-Gua, Hapkido, Aikido, Judo, Snake Fist, Karate, Tae-Kwon-Do and Muai-Thai.” Said Brookelle a little bashful.
“What? Brookelle you’re awesome!! I never thought you could do something like that!” Said Engel.
“I don’t know why but I felt insulted admist all that praise…..” Said Brookelle.
“And… Did you already figured out how to beat her?” Asked Lene.
“Isold? Well… I’ve got an idea but it’s most likely a reckless hunch.” Said Engel.
As Lene said, Engel’s next oponent was Isold Ähnlich. her match was just before Engel’s and she won with overwhilming power.
“When is the fight?” Asked Brookelle.
“Next friday.” Said Engel.
“I see… Good luck then.” Said Lene with honest feelings.
The place was full. Even more full when Engel fought Brookelle.
People had camped there in order to have good seats. The barriers were reinfoced by tenfolds.
Only the VIP seat were in peace. There, Yozora, Lilya, Adrian, Brookelle, Lene, Krestin, Patricia, Brunnhildr were waiting for the match to start. The others that weren’t there were in the general seats. It was because the VIP seats were full with Isold’s party too.
By the way, because it was troublesome, they let Clive, the manager of the party, tied in his room.
“When Engel wins this match, He’s going to fight me, huh…” Said Brunnhild.
“Are you in your mind? The one that is going to win is Isold obviously.” Replied Michelle, [Mountain Destroyer]’s leader.
“What?! My little brother is stronger that you friend! He’s ten time stronger!” Reacted Brunnhildr.
“And Isold is twenty times stronger!”
“Engel is 100 times stronger!!”
“Isold is 1000 times stronger!!”
“My little brother’s strength rises to the infinite!!”
“Sh-shoul I tell them Engel and Isold are already in the arena?” Asked Patricia.
Lene just put her hand in Patricia’s shoulder and denied with her head.
And moving towards the two participants….
They were not exchanging words.
(Thi-This is awkward… I knew she was stoic and short with words….. But this much?!?) Shouted Engel in his insides.
Suddenly Isold stared at him and-
“Have nice fight.” She said.
“Oh! Yeah, Let’s have a nice match” Said Engel with his half-smile.
Engel in the blink of an eye had already unsheated his twin shortswords and attacked Isold. But-
She was passed through like a ghost.
(I see… She’s fast with the casting…) Said Engel.
He was talking about Isold’s [Arcana].
“I’ll start acting then.” Said Engel as slight sparks were produced in [Phobos] and [Demos].
“[Absolute Zero].” Said Engel as all the arena started to drop in temperature. It dropped to the lowest temperature possible.
Isold noticed something wrong and-
“[Ice Rain]!!” Shouted Engel.
Then several ice spears fell towards Isol with great momentum and-
“Hoow?!!” Shouted Michelle as she knew nothing could damage her in state.
“I see… But I don’t think it’s reckless though.” Said Lene.
“Do you know what happened?” Asked Michelle.
“Yeah… Because what Isold does is to move her corporal molecules at a unbelivable speed, what Engel did is to stop them with low temperature.” Explained Lene.
“I-I see…” Replied Michelle.
Then Engel attacked with some [Ice Cannos].
But they were easily crushed in Isold’s body.
“Now she decelereted…” Thought Engel as he cheked his twin shortswords.
Isold then slowly started to walk towards Engel. She prepared her sledgehammer and started to run at full force.
“[Divine Lightning Strike]!”
Said Engel as he shot his spell from both his shortswords.
He had used [Divine Element] to attack Isold. She didn’t even flinch.
Engel then, while aviding her attacks kept his attacking with the [Divine Lightning Strike]. Needless to say, the spell was in a scale no one would resist.
If a person would recive the spell, nothing would last. Not even cinders.
But Isold wistood them.
“It’s futile! That’ alone won’t ever defeat her!” Shouted Michelle in proud.
“….. What is he trying to do?” Muttered Lene to herself as she intensely watched the match.
Isold wasn’t able to land even one hit, and every one of Engel’s spells landed head on.
(Is it ready?…) He thought to himself as he retreated some steps.
“[Dämonisch Auge] Activate!!” Shouted Engel, then he analized Isold, then his swords and-
“It is!!” He shouted and an enormous grin was formed in his face.
Then he sprinted towards Isold and-
He cut straight Isold’s arm with [Phobos].
Everyone shouted in surprise because the impenetrable wall had been easily cut as a hot knife cutting through butter.
Isold stared in suprise to the fact that she was cut, but…
*SLASH SLASH SLASH SLASH!!*
The merciless Engel kept cutting her with [Phobos] and in an instant-
Isold’s heart was pierced, then she was cut in half and all her HP was depleted.
“YEAAAAHHHH!!!! WOAAAHH!! IN YOUR FACEEEE!!”
“Stop it.” Said Engel as he gently chopped her sister’s head.
“Nice fight. I never thougth I’d see Isold lose.” Said Michelle.
“It’s okay. Even I wasn’s sho sure I was going to win.” Said Engel.
“Say… How did you do it?” Asked Michelle.
“Yeah! I want to know too!” Butted in Lene.
“Really?…. Well… It was Ionization.” Said Engel.
“”Ioni-what?”” Replied both Brunnhildr and Michelle.
“Ionization…. Ha-Haha-AHahahaha! That sure was reckeless of you! Using science to beat magic!… I-diot! Hahaha” Said Lene as she the dissapeared. Most likeñy, she used her [Arcana].
(Don’t just leave like that in a cool way!! At the end, it’s me the one who explains everything!!) Complained Engel in his mind to his comrade.
“Hey hey Engel!! What do you mean by Ionizashione?” Asked Brunnhildr.
“Haaa…. Ionization is when you give an electric charge to molecules and atoms. To beat Isold, all I did was charge her molecules with a positive charge using an electron beam and then use my charged swords to separate her molecules.”
“Wha?! I don’t understand at all!” Exclaimed Brunnhildr.
“Sorry but neither I did understand.” Added Michelle.
“Hmph! Research it youselves! I’m leaving!” Said Tsundere Engel as he teleported back to his dorm.
