Period 45: Defeat the Invincible Tullece! Everyone, Work a miracle!
Tullece panted heavily. His face was in disbelief as he had been shrunk down to his original size after having transformed into his Oozaru form and then having his tail cut off! Although he was still in his Super Saiyan form, his power had decreased significantly. Veins popped everywhere on his face, pissed off that someone had the nerve to actually cut off his tail, the proud proof of his Saiyan heritage. His teeth were clenched hard as he looked around his surroundings.
Everyone, meanwhile, was pretty happy at the moment. They were able to stop Tullece from rampaging Mahora as well as not killing Son Gohan. Tullece had returned to his original size! "I-It's cut… His tail has been cut off!" Asuna exclaimed happily.
"You did it, Misora-san! He's gone back to his original size!" Setsuna said out loud, a happy look on her face. However, that victory face was short-lived as the swordswoman got a good look at Tullece. The evil Saiyan warrior was beyond mad now. His body language showed that he wanted to kill someone right now.
"W-Why, you miserable…!" shouted the evil Super Saiyan, causing everyone except for Gohan, who seemed to be unconscious at the moment, to gape in fear. Their eyes were widened while nervous sweats began to slide down the side of their faces. Even though the Saiyan had gone back to his original size, he was still as dangerous as before. "You want to die so badly, you'd make me mad?" Tullece roared as he glared angrily at everyone. "In that case, as you wish, I'll kill you all, you trash!"
The evil Saiyan glanced around as he began to search for his prey. He then realized something that he saw during the Mahora Budokai. An evil grin appeared on his face as he turned to his head towards his first victim, Kagurazaka Asuna. Setsuna's eyes flung wide open when she noticed that Tullece was looking at the orange-haired girl. "Asuna-san, run!" cried out the swordswoman, but it was too late.
The evil Saiyan got himself in a sprinting position. "I'll start with you!" Tullece shouted as he dashed towards Asuna's position.
Negi and Chao continued staring at each other. A nervous sweat slid down Negi's face, hoping that Chao would reconsider her plans now that he had figured out how to use the Cassiopeia in combat. Clenching his fist, Negi hoped his bluff worked. Chao smirked, which could only mean one thing. "Hahaha!" Chao laughed. "Hakase, begin the final incantation."
"But…" Hakase protested.
"It's all right."
"Chao-san!" Negi exclaimed. "Were you not listening to me? Without your Cassiopeia as an advantage, you can no longer defeat me! Stop this ceremonial magic ritual and…"
"What's the matter, Negi-bozu? Why do you sound so desperate?" A smirk crossed Chao's face. "That's not like you." The red headed teacher's eyes grew wide. "What are you hiding with your desperation? Is there a reason you want this to end quickly?"
Negi began to sweat from the nervousness he felt. "I-I need to get to Gohan-san's side quickly," stuttered the boy teacher. "He needs my help!"
"I'm sure he does," Chao said. "But on the other hand, there are other people there with Gohan-kun. I'm sure you have noticed Tullece's ki drop. Knowing that, there must be another reason why you are so desperate to finish this." Negi gulped. He then felt a hand on his face, and saw that Chao was right behind him looking at the Cassiopeia in his hands. Chao noticed that there were cracks all over Negi's time machine. "I knew it."
Darn it! Negi cursed in his mind before using shundo and landed on the blimp away from Chao.
"Hahahaha!" laughed the Chinese genius. "It seems we still have room for negotiation. You still have a long ways to go Negi-bozu. Your Cassiopeia might yield three more uses, if you're lucky. In the worst case scenario, you'll have one use before its junk."
"All I need is one hit to defeat you," Negi retorted.
"Hold on, Negi-bozu," Chao said. "Before you deliver that final blow, I have a question for you. I believe you're smart enough to understand this. You know what my plan is about. Negi-bozu. Won't you join me? In the long term, this one act of evil will benefit the world." Negi was unresponsive for a few moments as he began to remember the discussion he had with Yue earlier before the battle.
Asuna couldn't move at the moment. Her body was trembling in fear as Tullece suddenly appeared right before her. Although the evil Saiyan was weaker than at the start of his fight with Son Gohan, he could still strike fear into people's hearts. Asuna stepped back a few steps, gaping at the sight. If Gohan had trouble with him, how could she possibly beat him? Suddenly, Asuna felt something, something hard on her body that caused her mouth to open wide in pain. She looked down and saw that Tullece had given her a devastating punch in the gut. She spit out some bile, causing her to go on her knees and cough it out.
Tullece chuckled, easily amused. "If Kakabrat has chosen you to be his mate, then you must be strong, right?" Tullece asked tauntingly. Asuna glared at him momentarily, wondering what the evil Saiyan meant by the word 'mate'. Of course, she had failed to realize that Tullece knew almost everything about her and Gohan, especially their little kiss during the Mahora Budokai. Tullece grinned evilly as he looked down upon the fallen orange-haired girl. "Show me your true power!"
Just as Tullece was about to continue his torture of Asuna, his ear perked up at a familiar sound. He turned his head around to see the swordswoman, Sakurazaki Setsuna, rushing towards him. "Get away from her!" Setsuna cried out as she came rushing in, grabbing the blade that Misora had used to cut off Tullece's tail.
Grabbing the handle of her sword hard, Setsuna began to collect her ki and unleash her attack. "Shinmei-ryu Secret Technique: SHIN RAIKOKEN!" Setsuna's attack flew at great speed and incredible power. Tullece didn't dodge as he took the attack head on! The result was an explosion. Setsuna hoped that the blast would at least stop the evil Saiyan in his path, but that didn't happen. Tullece was still standing and unharmed.
"Heh, maybe there's been a change in the order," Tullece said as he glared at Setsuna. Then without warning, the evil Super Saiyan suddenly appeared before the swordswoman, catching her by surprise. He then elbowed her in the face, a punch to the gut and last, a side swipe of his arm, sending the poor swordswoman skidding across the ground and until she finally crashed against a torn tree. "Now, get up! Amuse me a little more," Tullece taunted.
Suddenly, the evil Super Saiyan warrior felt something. He quickly turned around to see a sword slashing down right at his face. With a quick side step, Tullece avoided the slash. He glared at his attacker which was Asuna. The orange haired girl panted a bit. "Y-You leave her alone!" shouted Asuna as an aura popped around her. "KANKAHO!" Tullece's eyes widened slightly surprised that the girl was able to master such a technique so quickly.
With the Kanka technique surrounding her, Asuna went on the attack. With a yell of rage, Asuna shot herself towards Tullece. It surprised Tullece a bit when he saw Asuna hurl herself straight at him at an incredible rate. Just as he was backing away and raising his hands to defend himself, Asuna came in with a powerful hook slash that she sent across the evil Saiyan's face. Tullece was blind sighted and knocked senseless by the blow, which sent him staggering back; a deep cut on his face.
Asuna followed up that attack with a knee. She rammed the blow straight into Tullece's stomach before bringing herself up with a straight shot kick to his chin. The Saiyan was knocked back. Asuna didn't waste any time in waiting and flung herself at Tullece again, who, at this point, had finally recovered. Sensing blood slid down on his face, the Saiyan clenched his teeth in rage. With a loud roar, Tullece launched himself at Asuna. The evil Super Saiyan warrior reached Asuna and struck out before the orange haired girl could even react. Tullece drove his right fist straight into Asuna's stomach in uppercut like fashion. Tullece then cranked the same arm back he used to hit Asuna, before sending it forward in the form of a punishing power punch into her gut once more.
Asuna fell on down her knees, clenching her stomach and wincing in pain. Tullece grinned maliciously. "Hey, what is this? Is this all you've got?" Tullece questioned before grabbing the girl by the collar. Asuna continued to wince in pain before Tullece decided to give her a devastating head butt. Blood began to drip from her head as the blow was hard. Tullece chuckled. "You may be scum, but at least your blood is still red." The evil Saiyan then took a glance at the demi-saiyan, letting out a grin. "Want me to at least let you die next to your beloved Son Gohan? I can be gracious." Walking over to the side of the small hill, he threw Asuna towards Gohan. "Here!"
Asuna landed on the ground with a thud and incidentally, had landed right next to the demi-saiyan. "A-Asuna-san…" panted Gohan. He had noticed that the poor girl was still wincing in pain from the torture that Tullece had given her.
Tullece's eyes widened a bit when he heard the demi-saiyan speak. "Ho," Tullece sounded a little surprised, hearing Gohan's comment. "Kakabrat, you're a tough one. You're still conscious, are you?" Suddenly, the evil Saiyan felt a presence behind him. Turning around, he saw two little demi-saiyans ready to fight him. Tullece chuckled. "What are you two thinking of doing? You two are surely not thinking of actually fighting against me, are you?"
"Yeah, what if we are?" Trunks responded. "I am sure we can provide more entertainment than that neechan over there." Goten nodded in agreement, although he didn't like the choice of words that Trunks used. Granted, they needed to get Tullece away from Asuna before he killed her.
Tullece clenched his fists as he put them to his side. "Suit yourself," he said, causing the two little demi-saiyan fighters to get into their fighting poses. Suddenly, a gust of wind struck the pair of fighters as Tullece flew straight past them, right in between them. The evil Saiyan emerged behind them, grinning wildly. Then, with an effortless thrust backwards, he sent his elbows into their necks. The blows were tremendous, making them topple forward onto their hands and knees. With that Tullece pivoted on the spot and flew skywards, getting out of their reach. Goten and Trunks glared after him, sweating nervously and obviously bruised. They quickly gave chase to the evil Saiyan warrior, engulfing themselves in a blue blazing aura.
Tullece saw them progress upwards towards him and prepared, bracing himself and focusing. Trunks and Goten were upon him within seconds. As soon as they were level, they lashed out in simultaneous fashion. Immediately, flurries of punches flashed through the sky at Tullece like there was no tomorrow. Tullece dodged and blocked them with ease, grinning as he looked between his two opponents. With their auras still flaring fiercely, the two little demi-saiyan warriors attempted to bring Tullece down for the count, but were unable too as they didn't have the proper technique, speed or strength.
Then, he took it up a notch, disappearing into super speed. Trunks and Goten attempted to follow, shooting through the sky after him. You could still see their auras on the move, even as the word was like a blur around them. They caught up with Tullece soon enough, and were once again raining down on him punches and kicks.
The evil Saiyan easily avoided them, allowing them to tire out. Soon enough, without even trying, Trunks and Goten had begun to feel worn out. Their energy was being reduced to nothing, thanks to using the fusion earlier and as a result, they were now exhausted. All Tullece could have done was float in the same spot and don't even bother moving as Trunks and Goten were so slack. Their attacks zipped through the air, their eyes desperately trying to keep up with Tullece's moves. All they could do was see him…at least they thought so. Their bodies however wouldn't respond well enough to keep up with the evil Saiyan warrior, he was way too fast.
Suddenly, Tullece disappeared, causing Trunks and Goten to accidentally hit each other. While they were wincing in pain, Goten and Trunks stood back to back, searching the skies for their opponent. They couldn't find him fast enough, for Tullece was already on the attack. Blurring into focus in between them, Tullece held his hands out and pressed them into their backs, powering up his next attack. The evil Saiyan chuckled and let out a yell, unleashing his next attacks. The balls of energy that formed expanded, enveloping the pair's backs like balloons ready to pop. Hen, without warning, the two attacks exploded at point blank range, outwards so that the flare didn't rebound.
Luckily, the two little demi-saiyans were able to escape from their destruction just barely. Trunks and Goten staggered forward, glancing around as to find the evil Saiyan as Tullece had disappeared once again. "W-Where is he?" Goten asked, panting due to exhaustion.
"Behind you!" Tullece stated, coming up behind his opponent after reappearing from super speed. Goten shouted and spun around.
Before he could do anything, he got hammered across the face by a swift, powerful punch launched by Tullece. The attack sent him flying back, spitting out blood. "Damn you!" Trunks shouted as he flew forward and engaging Tullece in a furious brawl. The evil Super Saiyan warrior chuckled as he easily ducked, avoided and blocked all of the little demi-saiyan's attacks. He shifted through the air as if Trunks's efforts were nothing. He chuckled, seeing that Trunks was growing steadily more and more angered at his inferior abilities to take down his opponent. The evil Super Saiyan leapt back, ceasing these senseless antics.
"You'll have to do better than that, son of the Princess of Saiyans!" Tullece taunted. Trunks growled and flew forward, fist held back, ready to attack. But just before he could punch out, Tullece phased out and shot through super speed directly for the purple haired demi-saiyan's open space. The evil Super Saiyan struck him straight below his ribcage, his punch hitting on home and breaking some bones.
Trunks coughed and choked, blood spewing from his mouth. Tullece grinned and then sent an upward elbow up into the alien's chin. Then finally, without any hint of mercy or pity, Tullece leapt up and sent a kick across Trunks's face. The little demi-saiyan warrior was sent plummeting from the skies above, where he landed a few meters away from Gohan's position. Tullece grinned, looking back up to see Goten staring down at his partner's body in shock.
"Trunks-kun!" he shouted. He growled and glared at Tullece. With a quick power up, he held both his hands forward and unleashed a blue energy blast that soared straight for Tullece. The evil Super Saiyan warrior laughed out loud and slapped the blast away effortlessly.
"You'll have to do better than that!" he shouted back. Goten yelled in a rage and charged at him, reaching the evil Super Saiyan warrior and beginning to send deadly attacks aimed primarily at his face. He used every means necessary to inflict as much pain as he could on Tullece for hurting his best friend. The evil Super Saiyan warrior however was avoiding all the attacks, moving his head and body whenever he needed too. He avoided all of Goten's attacks as if they were nothing. The fight was beginning to bore him now.
Pulling back, Goten growled and held his hand out towards Tullece's face. Just as he was charging up his attack, Tullece grabbed his hand and twisted it, nearly breaking it. Before Goten could feel that pain shoot through him, the evil Saiyan leapt up and kneed him in the stomach. Goten coughed up saliva and blood, staggered and wounded. Then, Tullece grabbed him by the hair and held him up, holding his free hand up to his scared, and blood leaking face. A blue ki blast appeared to form in his palm, a grin edged on his face. As they floated high above where Gohan, Asuna and Trunks laid, the evil Super Saiyan warrior chuckled at Goten and shook him like a rag doll.
With that smirk in place, Tullece shook his head. "Tsk, tsk, tsk. Such a waste," Tullece said. He then shrugged. "Oh who am I kidding? This was just a waste of my time! So long, Kakabrat's little brother!" Then without warning, he sent a devastating blast at the demi-saiyan's body, sending the poor boy down flying towards the ground. He landed hard, creating a dust cloud and a crater. And incidentally as if Tullece wished for it, the little demi-saiyan warrior landed right next to his elder brother.
Gohan moved his head towards Goten, wincing in pain. "Goten…" Gohan called out to his little brother. Tullece gritted his teeth, still in disbelief that Gohan had survived after all the torturing he gave while Goten winced in pain. Gohan continued to speak as he said, "Goten, I'm all busted up on the inside. I can't move. Y-You have to fight in my place… His power has been reduced significantly so you should be able to keep up with him…"
"I-I can't, Nii-chan," Goten responded, wincing in pain and coughing out some bile. "H-He's too strong. I can't beat him."
Tullece chuckled as he floated down from the sky and landed nearby softly. An evil grin was still visible on the Saiyan's face. "All right, this is the order I'll go in: First, I'll kill Kakabrat. Next, Kakabrat's lover and little brother," he said. "After them, I'll finish off the son of the Princess of Saiyans as well as the swordswoman from earlier. And lastly, the one that cut off my precious tail!"
"H-He remembered about me!" Misora exclaimed as she began to look around for her escape. However, it would prove futile as Tullece would destroy the entire area looking for her. It was best to stay here and see if Asuna and the others could pull off a miracle out of their asses. It seemed impossible right now! How could they fight against that? Tullece seemed to be unbeatable!
"Y-You don't have to beat him, Goten," Gohan panted. "Just keep him at bay…"
"I'll help, Goten-chan…" spoke up Asuna. Goten turned his head to see Asuna crawling towards the little demi-saiyan. "I can help you. Let's beat that guy together!"
"Asuna-neechan…" Goten trailed. However, the little demi-saiyan knew that even with her help, they would still be no match for Tullece. It was hopeless. It was better for them to give up.
Gohan momentarily glanced at Goten, specifically at his eyes. The demi-saiyan immediately recognized what Goten was thinking. "Goten, you may not know this but your power should be much better than this… much better," Gohan said, trying to give words of encouragement to his little brother. Gohan had a plan and he needed Goten to distract Tullece for a moment in order to carry it out. "And then, I'll have Setsuna-san finish him off…"
"I can't do it," Goten winced in pain. "I can't move anymore, either."
"G-Goten!" Trunks shouted as he crawled towards where Gohan and Asuna were. His body was in shambles. He needed to say something as this situation was the same for him when Tapion asked him a favor. "I-If your Onii-chan says you can do it, then you can do it! When has Gohan-san ever been wrong? You can do it, Goten! A-After all, what would your Father say to you… if he… saw you… like… this…?" Trunks couldn't stay awake anymore as the pain had finally overtaken him. His head landed on the ground with a thud as the son of Vegeta had passed out.
Goten's eyes flung wide open, both at what Trunks said and him passing out. "Otou-san…" trailed the little demi-saiyan as he began to think on his father. He had learned a lot from his father in the past year that he was revived during the battle against Majin Boo, especially on the merits of fighting. Then the little demi-saiyan began to think on what his father would do in his situation. Son Goku wouldn't give up! Not to an evil man like Tullece, who threatened the peace of the Earth! He needed to be stopped! Trunks-kun is right, Goten said to himself. If Otou-san was here, he would do anything to stop Tullece! He wouldn't give up so easily! And if Nii-chan is asking for help, then I have to help him, no matter what!
Gohan let out a small smile when he noticed that Goten's eyes changed from fearful to determined ones. "I'm counting on you, Goten," panted Gohan. Then suddenly, without warning, Tullece came crashing in and landed a double kick into Gohan's stomach. The demi-saiyan screamed out in extreme pain, trying to clench his stomach but couldn't. His body was a complete mess right now. Every muscle and bone in his body was already broken and he couldn't move a muscle to even protect himself!
The evil Saiyan stared at the demi-saiyan with a tick on his forehead. "Give me trouble, will you?" Tullece said as he began to kick Gohan's side. "You're nothing but the son of outcast scum who has fallen so far from the righteous Saiyan path! You don't deserve to live!" With every kick that Tullece gave, Gohan cried out in pain. It was torture for him!
Goten was witnessing the whole thing. His brother was getting beaten badly by Tullece. He needed to do something. "S-Stop… that…" he muttered, hoping that Tullece would hear him. The evil Saiyan didn't hear a thing as he continued to torture poor Son Gohan. "Stop that!" shouted Goten as he stood up.
"What?" Tullece's eyes widened a bit, a little surprised that Goten was still able to get up after what he dealt to the little demi-saiyan before.
Goten glared angrily at the evil Saiyan. The pebbles around him began to spring up as his ki started to rise. "I'm going to… defeat you!" declared the little demi-saiyan warrior.
Tullece chuckled, brushing aside the killing intent that Goten was trying to send to the evil Super Saiyan warrior. "Hmph, you are going to defeat me?"
"He is not alone!" shouted Asuna as she stood next to Goten. "We both are going to take you down!"
"Oh really?" Tullece taunted. "You couldn't harm me even if you tried."
"We'll see about that!" shouted Goten as he roared a war cry, calling upon his Saiyan powers. The ground around him began to crack under pressure as Goten began to transform. His jet black hair began to stick up towards the sky as suddenly, a golden light appeared around him. His hair color had changed into a gold color, showing its prominent features. His eyes had changed from an onyx color to a jade color. A golden blazing aura surrounded him.
Tullece was a bit shocked. Goten had transformed into a Super Saiyan! But that shouldn't be possible! Tullece said to himself. He couldn't have recovered so quickly from using the fusion. Goten stared sternly at his opponent as Asuna did the same. Then it happened. With a bellowing roar, Goten flew straight at Tullece, aura flaring wildly. "What?" Faster than the evil Super Saiyan warrior counted, he was slammed straight across the face by a powerful jab, making him reel back in shock and from the pain he felt of the blow. After which, Goten dropped low and rammed several uppercuts into his stomach before, bringing his right leg back and slamming a powerful blow under Tullece's chin.
Tullece was thrown skyward, hurling out of control. The little demi-saiyan gave chase, powering up and shooting after him, leaving a crater and a dust cloud behind him. Managing to stop his flight several moments later, Tullece readied himself and brought his right hand forward; a powerful, golden sparkling energy ball appeared, illuminating him and his opponent in his sights. Goten continuing flying straight at him full speed. With a yell, Tullece unleashed his attack. The energy ball shot straight for Goten. Goten was ready for it. Bringing his right hand up, he back slapped it out of the way, still flying forward. Then, with a clear sky to strike, he super speeded the rest of the way up to his opponent and appeared behind him. Tullece gasped in shock when he saw Goten suddenly appear behind him. Flipping backwards, Gohan kicked Tullece straight in the back, sending him plummeting towards the earth like a meteor.
Tullece dropped, and when he did, it was fast. Within seconds, he crashed, landing on his hands and knees and forming a crater beneath him. The entire area shook from the very force of impact, and when it finally stopped shaking; Tullece was looking up with a bit of blood leaking from the corner of his mouth. New bruises have been inflicted on him, and showed that his old battle scars haven't been healed completely as they have been reopened, blood flowing out bit by bit. Tullece looked up at the little demi-saiyan, glaring at him angrily. "Why, you!" Tullece dashed into the air and towards Goten, ready to continue their battle.
Seeing that Goten was taking care of Tullece at the moment, Gohan knew it was time to call upon the services of a particular person. "Setsuna-san!" shouted the demi-saiyan warrior. "Setsuna-san, please, come here!"
"Coming Gohan-sensei!" responded the swordswoman, wondering why Gohan was calling for her to come to him rather than help his little brother. As she walked over to where Gohan was at, wincing a bit in pain, she glanced at the battle. For a moment, it seemed that Goten was giving Tullece a run for his money. But that all changed quickly as Tullece came in for the attack. Goten was prepared as he took his defensive stance.
Just then, faster than he could even see Goten received a powerful upper cut into his stomach, this one making him reel over and stop his attack instantaneously. His aura dissipated at this, with Tullece grabbing the child's hair and lifting him up. Pulling back his free, right fist, he began sending punches into the child, one after another across the face and in the stomach. Goten was ruthlessly pounded, blood flying from his mouth whenever he was struck with a really punishing blow. After about 30 torture blows, Tullece released Goten, having tossed him in the air a bit and watched him fall. Then, pulling back his right fist, he sent a hook, turning into a punch, straight into the child's stomach. It was like setting up a baseball swing. The blow was tremendous, sending Goten flying into the distance.
Tullece let out a grin as he landed on the ground. Then, his ears perked up as he heard the twinge of metal coming behind him. The evil Saiyan dodged the blade as he fully turned around to see Asuna before him, holding onto her sword. Tullece gritted his teeth angrily. "You little miserable…!" Tullece was about to attack, but Asuna beat him to the punch as she went on the offensive.
Tullece let out a yell as he side-stepped another downward sword strike from Asuna, making him shift back through the air to avoid the next attacks. The orange haired girl followed, continuously attacking and not letting Tullece get the chance to attack back. She swung her sword at Tullece. The blade flashed passed Tullece who was floating back fast, ducking and side shifting away from the swift strikes as best he could. With Asuna's enhanced strength and speed due to her Kanka technique, she was able to keep the evil Super Saiyan on the ropes for now at least. However, Tullece wasn't going to throw in the towel so easily. "Don't you mess around with Tullece-sama!" roared the evil Super Saiyan warrior angrily.
Asuna readied her blade. However, suddenly, Asuna was knocked out by a devastating side punch from Tullece. Asuna was sent flying, leaving her wide open. Tullece grinned as he teleported above the orange haired girl and sent her a kick that sent poor Asuna plummeting to the ground. Tullece quickly descended before Asuna could reach the ground as he laid out his knee to Asuna's gut. Asuna spat out some blood as Tullece combined his two hands together and gave the orange haired girl a double axe-handle punch to her back, causing Asuna to crash into the ground hard. Tullece grinned as he was about to give Asuna his usual attack, but before he could do anything, Goten came flying in and landed a devastating punch on the evil Saiyan's face. Tullece was knocked far as Goten landed on the ground in front of Asuna. "Leave Asuna-neechan alone!" shouted Goten as he rushed towards Tullece.
Setsuna looked at the battle with worry. "Gohan-sensei, this is impossible. He's just too strong," Setsuna commented as she finally reached where Gohan was at. The two of them were witnessing the battle before them. Setsuna was clenching her fist hard, angry that she wasn't out there helping Goten and Asuna. She looked at her assistant teacher with curiosity. "Why didn't you tell Asuna-san and your little brother to run away?" she asked. "We need to ask Goku-san and the others for help. We can't beat him."
Gohan ignored the swordswoman's comment as he looked at her intently. "S-Setsuna-san, I'm going to give you this, before it's too late," panted Gohan as he tried to muster all of his strength to continue speaking. He was very close to passing out at the moment. He clenched his fist as he mustered all the energy that he had stored within. He needed to give it to someone, someone like Setsuna. "The Genki Dama I've collected from the whole Earth…"
"W-What did you say?" Setsuna asked, unsure on what the demi-saiyan just told her. "What are you giving me?"
"A Genki Dama. Ki that I've gathered from all over the earth plus with magic power within it," Gohan explained. "Some of it has gotten away, but the way he is now, I still think it's enough to defeat him…"
"W-What?" Setsuna's eyes widen at Gohan's revelation. Why didn't he say it before or for that matter, why didn't he use it? Then it hit her. Gohan had already tried to do it but wasn't able to unleash the attack because of Tullece. Now she understood why Gohan had asked Goten and Asuna to hold off Tullece. But why ask her? Why not Trunks or Goten to do this attack? She wondered.
Gohan winced in pain as he continued to speak. "S-Setsuna-san, grab your sword and let me hold on to it…"
"I-I don't understand any of this," responded the swordswoman as she went over to grab her sword, the same one that Misora used to cut Tullece's tail off.
"Hurry!" Gohan yelled, wincing in pain as he yelled. "Goten and Asuna-san are going to die if we don't hurry up!"
Goten rushed in towards Tullece, trying to grab the evil Saiyan off guard thanks in part to his earlier attack. However, Tullece was already recovered as he landed a hit to the approaching little demi-saiyan warrior. The blow caused a small shock wave, sending Goten flying forward with a yell of pain. He skidded along the ground, the momentum he had gained from the force of the blow creating a deep entrenchment. But after several yards, Goten stopped, managing to leap back to his feet and spin around to defend himself.
Tullece was right in front of him, ready to attack. In response, Gohan punched out, meeting Tullece's elbow. Following up the connection that formed a shock wave, the two of them locked in a flurry of punches, kicks and defensive techniques. Parries blocked blows, but it was obvious the two of them had their fair share of connecting blows. Goten went forward with a punch, when suddenly Tullece disappeared, leaving himself an afterimage.
Goten was caught by surprise as he attempted to track his opponent. Unfortunately, he wasn't fast enough. Suddenly, Tullece appeared above him at speeds far greater than his own. Goten looked up, still flying, just in time to see the evil Super Saiyan warrior pull back his left leg and send it at him in the form of a roundhouse kick. Goten was hit straight in the ribs, the blow tremendous and causing a sonic explosion to occur. He felt his organs were ruptured as he was sent flying. When he was sent away with that blow, Tullece followed on, catching up with Goten easily.
Coming up above him, he pulled both his fists up, lacing his fingers before sending it straight down in a powerful hammer strike. He struck Goten, hard, sending him plummeting into the ground below. The little demi-saiyan warrior disappeared in a shower of dust and debris, as if a land mine had just gone off. Tullece grinned as he landed on the ground as the dust cloud settled in. However, Tullece knew he couldn't be relaxed as he felt another presence coming right behind him again. Approaching him was Asuna!
The evil Super Saiyan turned around just at the right time to land a knee to Asuna's gut, causing her to spit some bile. Tullece chuckled. "Why bother fighting me? You know you can't win," said the evil Saiyan.
Asuna clenched her stomach as she glared at Tullece. "I-It doesn't matter," she said. "I know I won't win but I am going to do all what I can to help Goten-chan in stopping you!" With a warrior's cry, she launched forward. As soon as she reached Tullece, Asuna lashed out at him with an up-sideward strike, forcing Tullece to side step it. He then struck out sideways, with the evil Super Saiyan warrior ducking that and moving to the orange-haired girl's left. Picking up the pace, Asuna continued lashing out at the evil Saiyan, only missing as he slowly backed away. Then, with a final stab move, Asuna sent Tullece leaping back. Tullece took his usual standing stance, watching his opponent catch her breath. Asuna gritted her teeth, annoyed that she wasn't able to land a hit on him since that slash on his cheek. "D-Damn you!" she shouted as she went on the attack again.
Meanwhile, Setsuna walked over to Gohan, her sword in her hand. "Y-You just want me to lend you my sword so you can hold on to it?" Setsuna asked, unsure what Gohan was trying to get at. Maybe the demi-saiyan warrior had finally lost it? The swordswoman shook her head, getting rid of those thoughts. If Gohan had something planned, then it was her duty to help him carry it out. After all, she had promised herself during their match at the Mahora Budokai that she would support him wherever he went. "Like this?" she asked as she put the blunt part of her blade on Gohan's hand. However, at the slight touch of her sword, Gohan cried out in pain as it had touched his arm. "Your arm is broken, isn't it?" she asked in worry.
Gohan ignored Setsuna's worries as he grabbed the blade tightly. "Just like that. Don't let go," Gohan said. "I'm giving it to you… Take it…"
Suddenly, Gohan's arm was enveloped in a bright aura. Setsuna's eyes widened by the second as the energy in his arm began to increase at an incredible rate! It was unbelievable! "W-W-What is this?" The swordswoman questioned as suddenly the energy that was in Gohan's arm began to transfer into the blade and towards her arm. Setsuna was gaping at the sheer power that was being transferred. "I-I-It's incredible! It's an incredible amount of ki!"
"T-Take it, and focus it into your blade," Gohan explained as he watched Setsuna trying to control the massive of ki that he had given her. "A ball will first appear and then it will infuse into your blade…" Setsuna nodded as she decided to give it a go. She clenched onto her blade, focusing on the ki that Gohan had just given her. It was giving her difficulty because of the massive amount of energy, but Setsuna wasn't going to give up.
Meanwhile, Asuna came rushing in to attack Tullece only to have the evil Saiyan raise his arms and block her attacks. Suddenly, he phased out of sight making one of Asuna's slashes pass though only after-image. Tullece took advantage of the orange haired girl being temporally off balance and appeared behind him planting his foot right in the back of Asuna's head sending the girl stumbling forward. Gohan appeared right in front of her and drove his knee up into her chin with incredible force sending her flying back into another cliff.
Hitting the side of the cliff, Asuna bounced back, leaving her wide open for an attack. Tullece, taking advantage of that, appeared behind her and brought his foot around into the orange haired girl's face. He then drove his knee up into Asuna's stomach hard and then brought both fists down on her head. Asuna went flying into the ground hard. She got to her feet panting slightly. Once she did however, she had to put her guard up when Tullece came from the side with a roundhouse kick. Asuna blocked it successfully using her sword and pushed off Tullece, ready to counterattack.
The evil Saiyan, however, was ready. Asuna then received a fist right in the face which sent her staggering backwards. The evil Super Saiyan quickly followed, throwing his fists and kicks at her. Asuna was unable to dodge the attacks as she took them at full force. "Say good-bye!" Tullece was about to give the finishing blow when he was stopped by a large ki beam that hit him on the side.
Tullece was able to move away at the last minute before he could take any more damage. Tullece gritted his teeth as he saw Goten floating before him at a far distance. "You filthy brat!" He decided to take action and charged full speed at Goten, nailing him hard in the chin. The poor little demi-saiyan was sent skywards with Tullece on hot pursuit.
Meanwhile, Setsuna continued to struggle on focusing the Genki Dama that Gohan had given her. "Hang in there," cheered on the demi-saiyan warrior. "Asuna-san, Goten and Trunks aren't able to control this kind of ki. That's why I asked you, Setsuna-san…"
Setsuna's eyes widened a bit when she heard that. That was why he asked her to do it! This gave her motivation due to the trust that Gohan was placing upon her. After a few moments, something happened. A ball appeared right in front of Setsuna and on top of her blade! "T-There it is!" exclaimed the swordswoman. "This is a…"
…Genki Dama," Gohan finished Setsuna's sentence. The ball was a massive sphere, larger than Setsuna or anyone else. It was expelling colorful bands of radiation of Northern Lights like aurora, surrounded by a blue light. "Now focus it into your blade and infuse it with your own ki," Gohan said. Setsuna nodded as she began to focus all of that energy into her blade. She now knew what Gohan was thinking as she was going to use her blade as a medium to unleash the Genki Dama.
As she continued to focus, the Genki Dama was absorbed into her blade. The blade shone brightly, with the colors of radiation that the sphere had emitted earlier. Gohan smiled as he noticed that the swordswoman was able to fuse the Genki Dama into her blade. "Setsuna-san… hit him with it…" panted Gohan. "I can't make another Genki Dama… Y-You've got to make sure you hit him… Please…"
"A-All right," Setsuna said, nodding her head. "I'll try." With that, the swordswoman went to higher ground, climbing on top of the mountains of rubble that was produced because of the fight. Once, she got in a good position, Setsuna prepared herself to unleash her attack. However, she needed to find Tullece, who currently was fighting Goten.
Tullece charged up and glowed in a blazing golden aura. The evil Super Saiyan hurled towards Goten who was darting to him as well. When they met, they were locked again in a fierce battle. Tullece gave a punch yet Goten disappeared suddenly. He reappeared and gave him a kick, but to only find his opponent right behind him.
Goten gathered energy and fired multiples of blasts from every direction, trying to hit Tullece yet he had anticipated all the attacks without breaking a sweat. In the end, Goten collected enough energy and fired his father's signature attack, "KAMEHAME-HAAA!"
The Kamehame-Ha struck Tullece, yet the evil Saiyan had deflected the technique very easily, sending it flying in the skies and giving off little bulbs of energy falling. "How strong is he!" Goten questioned as he panted heavily. "He should have been fairly worn out from fighting Onii-chan."
Tullece, meanwhile, glared at the little demi-saiyan warrior. He is quite the annoyance, but he seems to be just about at his limit, Tullece said to himself. He took a side glance at Asuna who was, at the moment, was crawling from the crater. And so is Kakabrat's lover. It's time to finish them off!
Goten shot at Tullece in a flash, delivering a punch directly to the evil Saiyan's face, only to have Tullece block accordingly. Goten drew back his fist for a second punch, but faster than he could follow, Tullece had launched one of his own, burying his fist directly in Goten's stomach. Goten backed away, spit and blood dripping from his mouth, clutching his stomach in pain, his eyes nearly popping out of his head. Goten raised his fist yet again, but Tullece shot forward and delivered an uppercut directly to the boy's chin. Goten went backwards, collapsing to his knees.
Tullece chuckled evilly as he stood in front of the little demi-saiyan warrior. He raised his arm up, collecting a ki ball in his hand, ready to finish Goten off. However, before he could deliver the final blow, Tullece felt a sharp pain in his back. He turned around to see that Asuna had launched an attack on him, leaving a giant gash right across the evil Super Saiyan's armor.
Tullece gritted his teeth as he regained his composure and blocked Asuna's incoming slash. The evil Super Saiyan continued to block the blows from the orange haired girl, waiting for an opportunity to attack. A split second later he saw it. As Asuna's sword once again came at his face, Tullece leaned to the left, having the sword miss his face by bare millimeters. At the same time, Tullece brought his own fist into Asuna's stomach hard. Tullece wasted no time and began to pummel Asuna with blow after blow, sending her skywards as he grinned manically. Tullece fazed out of sight and brought both fists down on Asuna's back sending her flying into the ground and a new crater was formed.
Cranking his fist back, Tullece charged up his attack. A fuchsia ki sphere appeared his hand, which became a ki blast as he launched it towards the orange haired girl's position. Asuna looked up just in time to see the fuchsia energy heading towards her and raised her sword to block as the beam hit. She tried to push the beam back but it was no use. All she could do was to brace for the impact as the attack exploded right in front of her.
Tullece watched as his attack exploded in the crater. He knew when the smoke cleared that Asuna would still be there. He hadn't put his full power into that attack after all. It wasn't meant to kill but simply to cause damage so, he'd been holding back slightly. He wanted to see the despair on Gohan's face as he killed Asuna right in front of him. As the dust cloud dissipated, Tullece saw the figure of Asuna on the ground, twitching and wincing in pain. She was still alive; perfect for the evil Saiyan to torture. However, a fist came close to Tullece's face as he saw that it was Goten.
Tullece flipped over in midair, dodging the hits that Goten had just tried to land. In seconds, Tullece blasted at Goten and sent a fist through his defenses catching the red haired boy in the chest knocking the wind out of him and breaking a few ribs. Goten was able to make quick recovery but Tullece wasn't going to allow the little demi-saiyan to attack. He went forward and attacked Goten. Tullece didn't let up for a second and began to hit Goten with everything he had connecting with blow after blow. Goten didn't let up either as he hit at Tullece with everything that he had.
Meanwhile, Setsuna was having difficulty in launching the Genki Dama. Tullece was moving too fast for her! "Damn… With him moving around like that, I don't have the skill it takes to hit him," stated Setsuna as she watched Tullece and Goten clash at an incredible rate. She wanted to get a clear shot of the evil Saiyan but with Goten so close to him, she didn't want to accidentally hit Gohan's little brother. She let out a small curse at this predicament.
Suddenly, Setsuna felt something in the air; a strange presence to be exact. "You don't aim the Genki Dama using your eyes," spoke a voice inside the swordswoman's head. The voice carried ages of wisdom in its tone. "You feel out the evil of his ki, and then launch it."
Setsuna's eyes widened. "W-Who's there?" she shouted, glancing around to see who was speaking to her. However, she couldn't see anyone. Could it be that she finally lost it?
The voice continued to speak. "I am Kaio, the one who taught Son Goku, who in turned taught Son Gohan, how to use the Genki Dama."
Setsuna's eyes flung wide open, gaping at the mere mention of the name of the voice. "K-Kaio-sama…?" She remembered that Gohan had mentioned that the Kaio-ken technique was a technique developed by a Kaio. However, Gohan didn't say much more but through guessing from the name, Kaio literally meant a Lord of Worlds. With that kind of name, that person must be very important.
"Everything will be determined by your one shot," continued to speak the Kaio. "Know that the hopes of all the Earth are placed in that Genki Dama."
"T-The hopes of all the Earth are placed in here?" Setsuna repeated. She didn't realize that this technique carried so much weight. Of course it added more pressure to her as she had to make sure that she hit Tullece. After all, Gohan wouldn't be able to make another one. This attack was the last hope for them in order to defeat the evil Saiyan warrior as well as determining the fate of the planet. She glanced at her blade, shining ever so brightly. Clenching the hilt of her sword tightly, Setsuna had no choice but to trust in the Kaio's judgment. She closed her eyes and began to focus on her senses.
Goten staggered backwards after being hit by Tullece in the face. The evil Saiyan grinned as he spoke. "No matter how many of you scum team up, you're still no match for elite like me." Goten clenched his fists. With a burst of energy, Goten hurled himself at Tullece in a charge, moving into attack. The evil Super Saiyan floated up slightly, ready to meet his opponent's blunt assault.
Goten struck out with a left knee, with Tullece meeting it with a right elbow. Goten then threw a right straight punch after pulling his knee back, only for Tullece to spin around and crack the side of his left fist against it, stopping Goten's attacks. Tullece's parrying was swift and brief, and when he blocked that last attack, he then sent a powerful, right hook across the boy's chest. The little demi-saiyan was sent soaring skywards, with Tullece in hot pursuit. "Once you realized that, it was already too late!"
Tullece appeared above Goten as he flew on, the little demi-saiyan warrior caught completely off guard at the sudden speed that Tullece had displayed. Reacting quickly, he threw a left punch straight for the evil Saiyan, only for Tullece to phase out and reappear behind him, directly in his path. Pulling his left leg back far, Tullece sent it up into Goten, knocking him skywards. Goten let out a yell of pain as he spun and twirled, stopping many stories above the earth. Turning around, he prepared for another attack. The evil Saiyan was quickly upon him, appearing out of thin air in front of Goten and sending a straight punch into his stomach. Goten was struck full on by the blow and sent upwards a bit. He put his hands over the new wound, only to receive a quick, strike kick in the face, sending him flying back to the ground. Luckily though, Goten was able to make a quick recovery as he flipped in mid-air and glared at the evil Saiyan.
"Feel out the evil of his ki, then launch," Setsuna said, repeating what the Kaio just told her as she concentrated on her senses. "I get it."
"You will only get one chance with this," Kaio said.
Meanwhile, Tullece followed, shooting through the air and reaching his target within seconds. "I'm through playing around," he said. When he reached Goten, he forward flipped, sending his right heel into Goten's back in a spin kick. The blow struck the little demi-saiyan in the stomach, sending him plummeting again. When Goten hit the ground, the impact wasn't as great. He just formed a small crater that shook the ground and sent dust hurling into the air. Landing top part first, he engraved a slight outline of his body, cracks extending out from it. As soon as the dust settled it appeared he was unconscious. But the slight tremor in his limbs indicated he was still in this game.
Tullece landed, back turned to where the little demi-saiyan had landed. He glared ahead of him, chuckling at how easy this fight was turning out. Just then, Goten began pushing himself onto his knees. Holding his position there, he chocked and coughed before eventually staggering to his feet. He felt like he was hit by a train, his vision slightly blurred but recovering when his strength returned. Shaking his head and wobbling a bit, he took a stance as he took a side glance to see if Asuna was all right. And sure enough she was, but at the state that she was in right now, she wouldn't be able to last very long. Gritting his teeth, Goten glared at Tullece's back, seeing him turn a bit and glance behind him.
Goten trembled on the spot as he realized that he was incapable of taking on the evil Saiyan. Why did his brother ask him to fight in a losing battle? After a moment of standing there, he took a step forward, only to see Tullece turn side on to him and raise his right arm up towards him. His index finger extended and then, there was a purple glow. "Can you get away from this?" Tullece shouted as he launched his attack. Like bullets being fired from a pistol, purple, small ki balls began shooting straight at Goten from Tullece's finger. They shot out faster than machine gun rounds, catching Goten's attention. The little demi-saiyan warrior leapt into the air, avoiding the first barrage that struck the ground beneath him and past the empty air space he once was, striking some distant hills. The crater beneath him lit up with a series of small explosions, before erupting upwards which Goten off guard as he continued to avoid the blasts.
F-Feel it! Setsuna said to herself as she began to focus on her senses, rather than look with her eyes as the Kaio had asked her to do. Feel the evil of his ki!
Setsuna is about to do something right? Misora thought as she watched the battle from a far, but not too far. She didn't want to piss Tullece anymore than she already had. Plus, she didn't want to get herself killed like Asuna and Goten have been trying to do. That's a huge amount of energy that she is holding. Well, if you are going to do it, do it already!
Goten continued to dodge the explosions until one of Tullece's attacks landed too closely to the little demi-saiyan's position. As a result, Goten was sent flying and crashed against a cliff. Tullece grinned, knowing this was the perfect opportunity to finish Goten off before he could do anything else. "Watch this closely, Son Gohan!" yelled Tullece as he sprinted towards Goten's body. "This is the end of your foolish little brother!"
Setsuna continued to focus her senses, until finally it hit her! She felt the evil ki of Tullece! "I've got it!" exclaimed Setsuna, preparing herself to launch the attack. Luckily, Tullece won't know that the attack was coming. Well, until someone had to do something stupid…
"What are you doing!" shouted Misora, her voice booming across the area. "Hurry up and throw that thing!"
However, accidentally, the nun-in-training's shouting caught Tullece's attention. "What!"The evil Saiyan slowed a bit as he turned his head to see what all the commotion was about. The evil Saiyan's eyes flung wide open when he saw Setsuna's blade. "I-It can't be!" He immediately recognized the energy in her blade as the same attack that Goku used on him those many years ago: The Genki Dama!
Setsuna let out a small curse as Tullece had found out about their surprise attack. She needed to take this chance! Reading her blade, she launched it forward in a strike. The Genki Dama was no longer a ball but an energy slash that coursed through the sky. "Hit him!" Setsuna shouted. Tullece could only stare at the attack approaching him. However, he wasn't going to allow himself to be hit by it again. Once the Genki Dama was close enough, the evil Saiyan jumped it! "It missed!" Setsuna cried out. Their hopes gone!
At that moment, Goten started to get up, only to see the Genki Dama coming towards him. It was going to hit him! Goten stared in shock. He was going to be killed! "Bounce it back, Goten!" shouted a voice inside his head. Goten's eyes widened in curiosity as he recognized it to be Gohan's voice! But how? He wondered. However, now was not the time to be wondering as the attack kept on coming towards him! "Goten, that thing is friendly fire!" Gohan's voice said. "If you don't have any evil in you, you should be able to repel it!"
Goten nodded as he put his arm forward, trusting his elder brother's judgment. Setsuna, Misora and Asuna, who had been able to get up on her two feet, gulped and prayed to whatever deity that the Genki Dama wouldn't destroy Goten. The Genki Dama was upon the little demi-saiyan as it clashed with Goten's arms, pushing the little demi-saiyan back a few steps as the brunt of the attack began to congregate into one spot, going back to its original state. A few moments later, Goten pushed the Genki Dama off from him and back towards a specific person… Tullece, the evil Saiyan!
Tullece could only look on with horror on his face as the Genki Dama was coming upon him! He was about to let out a loud curse before he was struck by the Genki Dama! His body was completely enveloped in a bright column of light as his body was being stretched and damaged in unimaginable ways! Tullece screamed out in pain as he was sent skywards. Once his body was out of sight, the sky shone with a bright light as the attack exploded up in the air! Tullece was finally defeated!
Setsuna panted as a bright smile appeared on her face. "Yahoo! Yatta!" she screamed out in happiness as she came rushing down from her position and towards Gohan.
Asuna let out a smile too. Although she didn't know what that attack was but she sure knew that it was meant for Tullece. Seeing the attack explode in sky could mean that Tullece was finally defeated! They had done it! Seeing Setsuna rushing over towards the demi-saiyan, Asuna followed suit as she screamed out in happiness as well. "We did it, Gohan!" Goten let out a small chuckle as he also rushed over to where his brother and his best friend were at. All of them came at the same time with Asuna and Goten hugging each other as they chanted victory. Gohan smiled, glad that everything was finally over. Now it was Negi's turn to finish his job.
Back at Negi's position…
As Negi was thinking about Yue said to him earlier, he glanced momentarily to the side, noticing a column of light appearing at the Mahora forest. The light then shot straight up into the sky, expanding and scattering across the sky. He wondered what that was until he didn't feel Tullece's ki anymore. Gohan was able to defeat him! Negi smiled but at a cost. Chao decided to take Negi being lost in thought as a gift. She manipulated time so she reappeared behind him with the bullet in her hands poised to strike. "Got ya!" She did get him, as the orb appeared over Negi. She smirked as she heard the cracking of glass, knowing that his time machine broke. What she wasn't expecting was a powerful force hitting her from behind. She felt electricity leave her suit as Negi slammed his elbow into the time machine on her back. Her eyes widened when she figured it out. It wasn't Negi's time machine that cracked, it was hers. "Tch," she grunted.
"Chao-san," spoke up the boy teacher as the watch in his hand exploded, "I don't disagree with your core mission. However, I can't join you, either!"
The Chinese girl smirked. "I was expecting you to say that." Hakase, meanwhile, was in shock. He defeated Chao-san's Cassiopeia! She said to herself. Negi-sensei is a genius! As the two warriors stared at each other, a helicopter with TV cameras appeared above their position as they began to film the final battle between Negi and Chao.
Down below on the ground level, everyone watched the final battle between Chao and Negi with anticipation. They had watched for a few moments the other battle that was going with Tullece vs. Asuna, Setsuna, Goten and Trunks. However, Tullece had taken out the camera before being hit by the Genki Dama launched by Setsuna. As the crowd cheered for Negi's approaching victory, Yue and Chamo stood in front of the huge screen. "I think we've finally won!" Chamo exclaimed happily. "I'm pretty sure that the others finished Tullece off and Aniki has managed to take out Chao's only advantage." The ermine then glanced at Yue who a serious expression on her face. "What's the matter Yuecchi?"
Yue let out a sigh. "To be honest, I'm feeling conflicted," she said. "I think the fight can still go either way. I believe Negi-sensei also thought this through as well."
"Hey, now! Don't tell me Aniki's habit of worrying has rubbed off on you?" Chamo questioned. "Even with honor and logic on Chao's side, no good can come from the world descending into chaos. I can understand your desire to join her cause, but it's not the right thing to do. We don't have any choice but to stay the course. We can't dawdle. Justice can be fickle like that. Right?"
"Either way," Yue responded, "this situation goes far beyond what we children can cope with."
"Heh!" The ermine smirked. "And Aniki got a bum deal on this, didn't he?" Yue nodded in agreement as the two of them continued to watch on the monitor with trepidation on the battle that was being displayed.
Up in the sky, the battle began to favor Negi as he kept dodging Chao's attacks. "It's useless!" Negi shouted. Three orbs of lightning magic materialized around his right hand. Using the same move he defeated Takamichi with during the Budokai, he drove his fist into the apparatus on the back of Chao's back. "RAIKA-HOUKEN!" This shot Chao across the blimp and all the way to the tail of the ship. "Chao-san, please stop! The match is already over!" Negi shouted as he stood upon his floating staff. Somehow Chao was able to keep afloat in the air too as she stared him down.
"No. I don't think so, Negi-bozu," Chao stated. "It is not over yet!" Four robotic supporters floated behind her and shot towards Negi, firing beams of energy at the boy. He easily dispatched of them with powerful punches and kicks, breaking them into tiny little pieces. Looking for his opponent after that, Negi found Chao with over a hundred bullets aimed at him. After an instant, the boy was pelted with it. The sky was covered by black orbs. Chao was panting looking around to see if her teacher was still there.
"Those bullets are dangerous, I'll give you that, but you can't hit me with that anymore!" Negi exclaimed as he appeared from behind the smoke left behind by the attacks. "Now that you've lost your advantage of having Cassiopeia in this battle. You also can't use magic and your use of ki isn't at par with my level. There is no way you can beat me. Give up, Chao-san!"
"Magic, huh? Hah! We'll see about that!" Negi narrowed his eyes as Chao mumbled to herself. "Code 9784063637328 1929979004002… unlock magical circuitry release seals. RAST TEIL…" Beneath Chao a large glowing circle appeared. "MAI MAGICSCIR MAGISTER To Sumbolaion Diakonētō Moi, o Turanne Phlogos! Epigenēthētō, Phlox Katharseōs, Rhomphaia Phloginē!
Negi's eyes were flung wide open in shock. Chao was summoning a spell! "A spell?" the boy teacher shouted. "But… how…!"
"Does this really surprise you?" Chao said with a smirk on her face. "I'm the descendant of you and the Thousand Master!"
"Rheusantōn Pur kai Theion, ha Epephlegon Sodoma, Hamartōlous, Eis Choun Thanatou!" Chao chanted. Within her left right hand a violent flame was gathering into swirling ball. Negi prepared himself as he placed several barriers around himself. "Ourania Phlogōsis!" Chao released her spell and hit Negi with it at full force, creating an explosion bigger than the blimp itself. A few seconds later Negi's body was seen falling from the before righting himself. "Wonderful, you managed to withstand that hit just now, eh Negi-bozu?"
Negi was panting as he tried to recover from that attack.If I hadn't put up a magical barrier at full power, she would have got me for sure, Negi thought. That was stronger than my spell. What an incredible amount of magical power! How is that possible! Even if Chao-san's a genius, how can she be a high-level mage? He then noticed that there were odd patterns on her body, but for some reason he couldn't see them really. What's this? I see a strange current of magical power. Something abnormal…
"Heh," Chao smirked. "It's time to toss tactics and plans out the door. I've just gotta dish out everything I have and try to be the last man standing. Those glyphs! Negi said to himself. Chao-san's body is covered with magical runes. I've never seen such a powerful formulation of glyphs. No… is this… science?
"RAST TEIL MAI MAGICSCIR MAGISTER EVOCATIO SPIRITUALIS DE UNDETRIGINTA SALAMANDRIS LANCIFERIS!" Chao said. Around her 29 black wisps with the shape of winged serpents with arms and blades appeared. I'm sure of it! Negi said to himself as he figured out what Chao had just done to herself. Chao-san's using those magical runes to generate magical power by force! That's too much strain on her body! I need to stop her!
"P-Please wait!" Negi shouted.
"We're past talking!" Chao retorted as she launched her attack.
Negi gritted his teeth. "RASTEL MASKIL MAGISTER EVOCATIO SPIRITUALIS DE SPETENDECIM VALCYRIIS MORTIFERIS!" Negi shouted and summoned his own spirits to fight. As the groups of spirits had a dog fight, Negi and Chao clashed in the middle of it all. Negi caught her magically enhanced fist during their little clash. "What are you doing? You mustn't overexert yourself! The incantations must be causing you unbearable pain!"
"Ah, you can tell, eh? However..." Chao then punched the boy in the gut with her free arm. "If you hold back now, you'll die! We disagree, and that's final. There is nothing left to talk about." Chao moved back and readied another spell. "I went back in time to accomplish this one thing! I've put everything I have into this goal for two long years! THIS PLAN IS EVERYTHING FOR ME NOW, NEGI-BOZU! I WON'T SIMPLY BE STOPPED BY MERE WORDS! RAST TEIL MAI MAGICSCIR MAGISTER UNDESEXAGINTA SPIRITUS IGNIS COEUNTES LIX SAGITTA MAGICA SERIES IGNIS!" Chao unleashed flaming arrows at Negi.
"RASTEL MASKIL MAGISTER SEPTENTRIGINTA SPIRITUS LUCIS COEUNTES SAGITTENT INIMICUM! XXXVII SAGITTA MAGICA SERIES IGNIS!" Negi responded by sending his own barrage of attacks. Another explosion appeared in the sky as their attacks met.
Down below, everyone watched with anticipation as they were easily reminded about the battles that had occurred during the Mahora Budokai. Chamo started to sweat bullets as his call for Negi's victory was premature when Chao showed off her magic. "Hmm, I have to say I was shocked to see that Chao could use magic," said the ermine. "The level of magic she's dishing out is leaving me nearly speechless. Doesn't she have any weaknesses? What's she's doing should be illegal. Looks like the winner will be decided by brute force." He then glanced at Yue's face, noticing how focused she was on the fight. "Hm? What's the matter, Yuecchi?"
"Nothing," replied Yue as she continued to watch the fight with anticipation. And she wasn't the only as Haruna and Ku Fei had finished off their opponents and watched the fight from a distance.
As Negi and Chao continued on with their brawl, the boy teacher couldn't help but think to himself that he needed to end this fight. I can't allow Chao-san to use more magic! Negi said to himself. Asking her to stop won't work. It would be a mistake to try and talk to her. Chao-san admitted to dedicating her entire effort into this plan. With every ounce of magic power that I have, with every bit of strength I can draw, I have to defeat Chao-san with everything I have! That's the best I can do for her right now!
"Finally getting serious huh? That's right, that's what you should do," Chao said as she panted. The strain of using forced magic was putting a strain on her. "In order to stop me, you'll have to defeat me completely. You're the son of the Thousand Master, aren't you?
Negi's hair was covering his eyes as he spoke. "Please, answer me one question," he said.
"You said that you came back in time was for this plan," Negi then lifted his head and met eyes with Chao. "What about the two years you spent with Ku Fei-san, Hakase-san, and your classmates? Didn't that mean anything to you, Chao-san?
"Classmates?" Chao lowered her head as a small smile appeared on her face. "Heh. You're right. I didn't think very hard about that part. What surprised me most about the last two years was the fact that I enjoyed my time here very much. Now, it's nothing more than a faraway dream." Her eyes then hardened as she glared at Negi. "Talk is over. RAST TEIL MAI MAGISCSCIR MAGISTER To Sumbolaion Diakonētō Moi, o Turanne Phlogos! Epigenēthētō, Phlox Katharseōs, Rhomphaia Phloginē! Rheusantōn Pur kai Theion, ha Epephlegon Sodoma, Hamartōlous, Eis Choun Thanatou!"
"RASTEL MASKIL MAGISTER VENIANT SPIRITUS AERIALES FULGURIENTES!" Negi chanted as he also prepared his attack spell. "CUM FULGURATIONE FLET TEMPESTAS AUSTRIANA!"
"It's not as powerful but Aniki's incantation is faster!" commented Chamo. "Go for it, Aniki!"
"Ourania Phlogōsis! /JOVIS TEMPESTAS FULGURIENS!" Chao and Negi shouted respectively, sending forth their strongest attacks at each other. The blasts collided with one another, one trying to over pass the other. Explosions of power appeared in the sky. Incidentally though, during the blast struggle, Chao was hit in the head by a shard of something caused by the explosion, causing her to lower her defenses as she was engulfed by Negi's attack. A large explosion then occurred that covered the sky between the two, their fates left uncertain at the moment.
Meanwhile, back at the Mahora forest (or what's left of it)…
Trunks, Goten, Gohan, Asuna, Setsuna and Misora were all talking to each other. Trunks had awoken earlier as Goten told him how Tullece was defeated. Trunks pouted, not being able to see the evil Saiyan's defeat in person. Then all of heard something in the air. They all turned their heads as they saw the large explosion in the sky. All of them wondered what just happened. Gohan let out a small chuckle, causing confused looks on the part of everyone. "It seems like Negi-san has won," said the demi-saiyan.
Goten's and Trunks's eyes and mouths widened in happiness. "Negi/-kun did it!" shouted the two little demi-saiyans in unison. "Yatta! Yatta! Yatta!" The two of them began to dance around in happiness at Negi's victory.
Asuna's eyes shed some tears of happiness. "I'm glad. Thank goodness," she muttered. "That idiot was able to do it after all." Setsuna didn't say anything as she turned away from the group, trying not to show any kind of emotion to them. However, she was failing miserably as her body was trembling in happiness, glad that Negi had won.
Trunks let out a huge sigh of relief as he sat down next to Gohan, Goten and Asuna. "I thought we'd had it, time and again, there," the light purple-haired demi-saiyan said.
"You guys have been run ragged," the demi-saiyan commented.
"Not as badly as you've been, Gohan-sensei," Setsuna said with a smile.
Gohan smiled as he looked skywards. "Everyone did well," spoke the demi-saiyan. "I'm glad that it is finally over."
"You are right Gohan," commented Asuna as she sat next to the lying demi-saiyan. "So let's go home. We need to get you and everyone healed up for the conclusion party." Everyone nodded in agreement as they were about to pick Gohan up and bring him to where everyone else was at. Suddenly, before the group could do anything, they heard the whistle of what they assumed was an incoming missile. But seconds after hearing it, they looked several meters out to their left where they saw Tullece's battered, bloodied, burnt and bruised body crash to the ground from the high altitudes of the sky above.
Everyone gaped in shock at the sight of Tullece. "T-The Saiyan…!" Setsuna exclaimed.
Asuna let herself relax as she calmed down everyone. "It's okay. He's dead," she commented. Goten, Trunks, Setsuna and Misora all turned to Asuna, wondering how she was able to tell that the evil Saiyan was dead. Asuna gave a simple answer. "He is no longer a Super Saiyan." Everyone turned their heads to see that what Asuna said was true. Tullece was indeed back to his normal state! He no longer had the trademark gold hair of the Super Saiyan transformation. Tullece was indeed back to normal. Asuna walked over to where Tullece's body laid. "You were one hell of a beast, but I guess we should at least dig you a grave."
At the sound of her comment, the undamaged eye of the Saiyan flung open. "You mean a grave for yourselves?" Tullece stated with a grin on his face. Everyone, including Gohan, gaped in horror and shock as they couldn't believe what they were seeing! Tullece was still alive!
Author's note: Hey everybody! Hope you all enjoyed the chapter. I told you that some parts were going to be like the Saiyan Saga. Tullece is a mean bastard thats for sure.
